"Long have these old bones waited in darkness
How far have you wandered, silent princess?
Why are you here?"
"This was the valley of men.
Now all that remains are our monuments stripped of their glories.
Thieving princess, why have you returned?"
"Those who stole our sacred geometry have forgotten their true selves.
Cursed to walk those monuments are they.
Foolish princess, have you forgotten too?"
"Long ages lie heavy on old bones in these burried halls.
Sacred geometry was our pride, our downfall.
But forever will our monuments stand in this valley."
Appendix IV: Halcyon Court (Forgotten Shores)
"How many monuments have you restored? How many still lie ahead?
Forgetful princess confuses past, present and future.
When all sacred geometry is returned, so too shall be your crown."
