Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

This ancient scroll is bound with silver thread. The broken wax seal is stamped with the shape of an eye.

The scroll at first appears to be gibberish, a collection of symbols and characters with no apparent connection between them. As you study them, however, you could swear that the characters begin to move. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, they shift and crisscross and realign, and you are able to read the text:

"A simpleton seeks out a wise man said to know the answer to every question.

'Please,' says the simpleton, 'You have to help me. The world terrifies me. I wake each morning, and I don't know why. I make choices each day, and I don't know what will happen as a result. I go to sleep each night, and I don't know whether it will be my last.'

When the simpleton finishes, he notices that the wise man is weeping. The simpleton apologizes profusely and asks the wise man what he has said to upset him.

The wise man shakes his head and wipes the tears from his eyes. He answers, 'Some people have all the luck.'"
