Prince Farondis: Of course I couldn’t sit back and let them just cart you away. I will explain everything.
Speak with Farondis and hear his account of how he saved you.
Prince Farondis: Listen well, (name).
(What happened, Farondis?)
Prince Farondis: Guilt overcame me. I could not simply WAIT while you fought my battles. I resolved to follow you into the academy.
Approach the Academy: 1/1
Prince Farondis: I’d only reached the academy entrance when I saw those two naga, with you in tow.
Athissa: Make sure that prisoner doesn’t awaken, Parjesh.
Warlord Parjesh: Yes, my mistress.
Prince Farondis: I saw my chance. I would attack the naga leaders and save you from captivity.
Athissa: Be gone, spirit! The Tidestone belongs to us now!
Warlord Parjesh: You deal with our guest, Athissa. I shall take the prisoner to the slave pens.
Athissa: Curse you and your kind, elf. The queen herself will hear of this!
Prince Farondis: Athissa and the Tidestone had evaded me. Rather than pursuing her, I set off to rescue you, my champion. I had finally found their slave pen. At the entrance to the cave, however, I ran into an old acquaintance.
Vision of Queen Azshara: Farondis! My most loyal subject. It’s been too long.
Prince Farondis: That voice…
Vision of Queen Azshara: I’m sorry, you must not recognize me.
Vision of Queen Azshara: Is this better?
Prince Farondis: Queen Azshara… you… YOU lead the naga?
Vision of Queen Azshara: Poor, deluded Farondis. Don’t you remember? I quashed your rebellion ten thousand years ago. Do you remember how powerless you were to stop me? And look at you now! A spectre of your former self, cursed to an eternity of undeath and ineptitude. I’m giving you an opportunity to kneel before me, princeling. Maybe something can be done about that little curse…
Prince Farondis: To release my people’s curse… to redeem myself and secure my legacy… No. I knew I what I must do. The people of Azsuna were – and always will be – too proud to kneel before your demonic allies, witch. And we will NEVER… KNEEL… BEFORE YOU!!!
Vision of Queen Azshara: Ha ha ha haaa… my wrath is coming.
Save yourself: 1/1
(You): What happened, Farondis?
Prince Farondis: I believe you know the rest of the story, (name).
