Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Necromancer Volumandus)
- "It is a little known fact that some Polymock pieces were made using the dark arts. Through the ages, most were destroyed or hidden. I have managed to acquire some of the few remaining pieces known in all of Tyria. So tell me, are you ready to face your darkest fears, <name>?"
- Player response: "I wish to play you in a game of Polymock."
- "You will be removed from your party and taken to a Polymock arena to battle Necromancer Volumandus. Do you wish to proceed?"
- Accept: "Yes."
- Reject: "No."
- "So you defeated the Necromancer and he didn't turn you into a bone minion? Two victories for the price of one, I say. Well done! Someday you'll have to tell me your strategy."
