I spent a couple hours exploring The Painted World of Ariamis to see what enemies and secrets laid about. Once I got my fill of the place’s snowy castle grounds, I gathered my focus to face Priscilla. I waited for the boss to pounce, but the strange, dragon-like woman remained still. I cautiously approached her and she said:
“Thou must returneth whence thou came. This land is peaceful, its inhabitants kind, but thou dost not belong. I beg of thee, plunge down from the plank, and hurry home.”
Based on the monsters I’d just come through, I begged to differ, but she was a unique boss that stood her ground without provoking me. I didn’t know what to do, so I turned to the internet to see if she was worth a trophy or had good drops for weapon forging…then I reflected in disgust. Am I really considering sacrificing an innocent person at the altar of these simple, unimportant goals? I tossed my phone aside, glanced at Priscilla one more time, and left her domain forever.
