Currently I’m taking Erdrique (Level 12 Druid) through the Vault of Night Story Arc and the other day I ran The Prisoner (aka VON 2). The idea behind quest The Prisoner, is that the powerful sorceress Orphne was tricked by assassin from the Inspired and was subsequently poisoned. As a result, she has fallen under a deep sleep has been trapped inside her dream (the Inspired are members of the Realm of Dreams, who you run across in the Inspired Quarter).
My question and thoughts at this point concern Orphne’s Dream. When you enter her dream, you talk to her to get the quest started and she talks about how lovely her home is. As you venture further into the quest, I begin to realize that her home isn’t very lovely at all. First off, it has two treacherous “bridges” that are made from fallen columns that are constantly buffeted by powerful air jets that just love to knock adventures across the map. Second, it is filled with some pretty vicious monsters including tharaak hounds, arcane oozes, annoying quorit stalkers, and of course the lovely beholders. Third, what lovely home has a maze? Fourth, what home contains former adversaries from your past such as huge fire giants?
All of these questions make me wonder what Orphne actually keeps in her real house and I wonder where her real house actually is? I’m not so sure I would like to visit such a place myself, lol. In either case, I just wondered about Orphne’s and her choice of dreams. Why couldn’t she dream of being in a quiet,serene, and peaceful place?
Well that’s it for now. Thanks for reading and happy hunting everybody!!
