The Gates of Wax
Oenia Skyhorn: Go talk to the Bluewax Gatekeeper and see if he will let you through to the Candleking. If you can get through by donning the skull, the smell will be worth it.
Speak with the Bluewax Gatekeeper and see if he will let you in to meet the Candleking.
Discovered: Candle Rock
NOTE: You are wearing the skull on your head. The Kobolds at the entrance to the Candle Rock cave are now friendly.
Intern Jackie: Chair empty. I sit. No one notice?
Bluewax Cavewhisker: I dig. I find. I keep!
Bluewax Flamewick: Why no have candle? Darkness eat you if no have candle!
Bluewax Cavewhisker: No talk! Must dig!
Bluewax Cavewhisker: You no take candle! If candle go out, darkness eat.
Bluewax Cavewhisker: Very busy. Always jobs to do! Smart workers catch rats. Smartest workers light candles. Others… dig.
Kipp Brightwick: I no stop candle making! … Unless you want story?
(I want story.)
Kipp Brightwick: Kobolds live here long time. Make home in nooks. Catch rats. Sometimes eat them. Dig for treasure. Trade with harpies. They like shinies, we like wax. Fresh from ears is best. One day drogbar come in. Say cave is theirs. They smash and scare. We take candles and hide. Drogbar big and stupid. They have cave, but no have candle. Darkness finds them. Darkness follows them. Darkness swallows them whole! We come back. We have candles. Cave ours again. Candles keep us safe.
Bluewax Ratcatcher: Rats not afraid of darkness.
Bluewax Flamewick: Boss has big ears. They hold most wax. Fresh wax makes best candles.
Bluewax Gatekeeper: What you want, stinky?
