| OK, Wretch think...
[He breathes heavily and taps his hand roughly against his head for a long moment...]
OK! So! Lil' talky men...
[He trails off for a few seconds, but manages to recover...]
Lil' talky men wanna blow up universe... They need sister to do it... maybe... and use... Rich-ew-ul... Right? OK... so... you go learn about rich-ew-ul from lil' glowy men! Wretch know where lil' glowy men are!
[The Wretch marks a place on your map...]
Maybe we learn rich-ew-ul, then find Wretch sister!
| Wretch say please again!
[The Wretch claps happily...]
Wretch hold fort down!
| Hmmm.. Wretch think.. aren't we in the universe...?
[The Wretch notices you've approached him...]
Oh! Hi! You find rich-ew-ul yet? Wretch wonder.
Apparently "Lil Glowy Men" means the Circle of Thorns. Great...

|Eimyrja's Final Words|
|Before dying, Eimyrja said:
"They wish to unmake everything. We fought, and you were the victor, but you cannot allow them to succeed... they are missing a vital element of the ritual, something artificial, it is why they have returned.. the one named Summers.. you must... not..."
|The Ritual of Alka'Ta, Book One|
|One of two books which describe a dangerous ritual designed to allow a person to astrally project to an alternate plane as a physical being, but if abused, could potentially collapse the universe by colliding it with the Nether Realms!|
|The Ritual of Alka'Ta, Book Two|
|One of two books which describe a dangerous ritual that could, potentially, be used to destroy the universe! It briefly describes the use of a psychic anchor to catalyze horrific magics, that will then power a machine, which will then collide this plane with Nether Realms, obliterating them both!|
|This data cube details Summers' orders. Seems that she and her contingent were sent for the second book of Alka'Ta when they realized a major and vital part of the ritual was missing. However, this isn't the only place a copy was kept, and the Nihilists may have already found another copy!|
|The Nihilistic Directive Pt. 2|
|The Wretch knew of a place the Circle of Thorns kept a copy of the Ritual of Alka'Ta, but it was really only a coincidence, as the Circle apparently has a few of those lying around. Furthermore, there are two books that make up the Ritual, and when the Nihilists realized they only had one, they sent operatives out for the second! You managed to stop the Nihilists from attaining this copy, but examination of Summers' orders revealed that the Nihilists knew of the other locations and sent out operatives to multiple sites, just to make sure!
In all likelyhood, they already have a copy of the second book. It would be a good idea to confer with the Wretch, and maybe, find a way of locating his sister.
| Wretch mad! Lil' talky men there!?
[You explain to Wretch the situation, as best you can...]
OK.. Wretch agree... you find next part lil' talky men need, and...
[The Wretch sticks his tongue out a bit as he scratches his head, thinking really hard...]
When we got it, we make a trap for 'em! Then, we can find Pia!
[The Wretch hugs you... tightly...]
Wretch excited! Widow sometimes say Wretch maybe drink tea...? Wretch don't get it.
