a stone statue of the evil wizard Mondain.
Subsequent visits :
"For what dost thou return, Avatar?"
Initial visit :
You remember as if it were yesterday how you defeated Mondain in your first visit to Brittania.
Using the four stones, you went back in time to smash his power-gem.
The statue speaks!
"We meet again, Avatar."
"Fear not! I have but one task now, and am no threat."
"Surely you of all people would recognize me as Mondain."
"The gargoyles have enshrined my spirit here as the embodiment of control.
"I was once a mighty wizard."
"Control was the essence of my soul--control of self and control of others."
"But desire for more control overcame me."
"I forsook my self-control in my hunger for conquest."
"Control must start with the self and expand outward."
"The strong must lead. But to be strong one must control oneself first."
"The gargoyles understand control."
"Their society is based on the strong guiding the weak."
"In this way, they survive in their harsh world."
If understand :
"May thy control help you succeed in thy quest."
If don't understand :
"Thou wilt need control of others to succeed in thy quest, Avatar."
"But thou wilt most of all need control of thyself to be worthy"
"I have no concern for matters such as <Last Input>"
"I am enshrined here in eternal contemplation of the principle of control."
"Contemplate what thou hast learned. Repeat after me the Mantra of Control."
"I can teach thee no more."
"Thy understanding is flawed. But I can teach thee no more."
"But thou wilt most of all need a clear vision of thy goal to be worthy."
Based upon karma level :
"Thy deeds show a lack of control"
"Thy deeds show a need for more control"
"Thy deeds show understanding of control"
"I admire thy deeds and thy control"
