Player: hi Zalamon: Not many travellerzz zzezze dayzz. I hope you bring good newzz. Player: travellers Zalamon: I am zze lazzt priezzt of zze true god. I wazz zze grand charmer of my people before zze dragonzz came to Zao. Player: true god Zalamon: Zze Great Zznake. Our mozzer, our keeper. Zze Great Zznake izz our zzourzze and our dezztiny. Player: dragons Zalamon: Zzey came at a time of dread and need. Our power wazz waning becauzze too many had become laxzz in zzeir worship of zze Great Zznake. Zzey were too well fed and lived in lavish luxzzury. Zalamon: Our zzoldierzz had become fat and lazzy. All our enemiezz zztarted to raid our zzitiezz. Zzey were many and our army wazz zzpread zzinly. I zzaw it azz a punishment by zze Great Zznake but zzey didn't lizzten. Zalamon: Zzey reacted too zzlowly and when zzey tried to rally zze army zzo many were dead, zzo many were lozzt. Inzztead of fighting, zzey hid in zze zzitiezz where zze hordezz could take zzem out one by one. Zalamon: Zzen zze dragonzz came. Zzey offered help and my people foolishly zzaw zzem azz mezzengerzz of zze Great Zznake and zzo zzey acczzepted. Zzoon zze dragonzz began to bozz zzem around, taking zze power into zzeir clawzz. Zalamon: Zzey led zzem to victory but at zze prizze of zzeir freedom. I'd zzeen zzem azz zze falzze mezzengerzz zzey were. I gazzered my people but zzey crushed our rezzizztanzze. Zalamon: Zzzey bound my people to zzem wizz a mighty zzpell preventing zzat zzey would ever rebel again. Zzen zzey fought againzzt each ozzer but zze mightiezzt of zzem bound zzem all l ike zzey had bound my people before. Zalamon: Zzere wazz no hope for zzozze of uzz who had ezzcaped zze binding. We were too few, our numberzz dwindling. Now I'm zze only one left and zze poizzon of zze dragon kingzz izz corrupting zze land. Player: zao Zalamon: Zzizz wazz zze land of zze lizzard people. We lived here for zzenturiezz in peazze. We were great in zzienzze, philozzophy and art. Now zze land izz zzick wizz corruption. Zalamon: ZZozze zzat are not opprezzed by zze dragon kingzz are overrun by barbaric creaturezz. Player: corruption Zalamon: Zze emperor of zze dragonzz hazz tranzzformed himzzelf into an undead creature to lazzt for all eternity, to cheat deazz. Hizz corruption flowzz to zzozze he bound, and from zzem to zzozze zzey bound, and from zzem into zze land. Player: dragon kings Zalamon: Zze dragon kingzz rule in zze name of zze dragon emperor. Zzey rule zze zzitiezz, zzey lead zze armiezz. Vile and zzelfish azz zzey are, zzey alwayzz try to challenge zze pecking order. Zalamon: Zzey try to come into zze favour of zze emperor and to dizzcredit zzeir brezzren in hizz eyezz. Player: emperor Zalamon: He wazz zze oldezzt, zze mightiezzt of zze dragonzz zzat fled zze dezztruction of zzeir izzle, an izzle where zzey ruled like godzz. He taught zze lezzer dragonzz zze zzpell of binding, only to bind zzem zzemzzelvezz later on. Zalamon: To enzzure hizz rule would endure zzrough all eternity, he became an undead lich. A mockery of zze life zzat zze Great Zznake zztandzz for. Now he rulezz zze land wizz an iron claw, everyone living in zze realm izz hizz bound zzlave. Zalamon: I'm gazzering every zzingle zzoul I can find which hazz not yet been corrupted to help building an effective rezzizztanzze. Player: barbaric Zalamon: Orczz, minotaurzz and humanzz alike. Wizz zzeir limited brainzz and meazzurezz, zzey cannot even hope to achieve a zzivilizzation like we onzze had. Player: orcs Zalamon: Zzey are vile beazztzz. Zze minotaurzz enzzlaved zzem like zze dragonzz enzzlaved uzz. But zzey dezzerved no better. At leazzt zze minotaurzz keep zzem in check and make zzem a better weapon againzzt zze dragonzz. Player: minotaurs Zalamon: Zzey are barbarianzz like you. Azz long azz zzey hurt zze dragon kingzz, I zzee in zzem zze toolzz of zze Great Zznake. Player: humans Zalamon: You're like zzem and yet different. Zzey are little better zzan beazztzz. Fit for nozzing zzan to be hunted for zzport. Zalamon: Even azz our realm wazz at itzz weakezzt, zzey were merely an annoyanzze. Zzeeing you zzough I wonder what kind of a zzreat zzey could have become.
