The Missionary.

(Meeting The Missionary)

The Missionary: This must be how Saradomin felt. Thousands of lost souls to be guided by His Light.

Player: I take it you're Brother Jered's representative.

The Missionary: That I am. Name's Tomin. I'm here to make sure that Saradomin gains more than just foothold in the Eastern Lands. I'm going to build a church - an edifice that'll cause the heathens to fall on their knees. But I should warn you; this is MY opportunity. I won't take kindly to anyone who interferes.

Player: Oh! I hadn't planned to.

The Missionary: Good. You'll hear from me soon.

(Go Among the Heathens)

Beginning.

Player: Tomin, you ready to build the church in the Arc?

The Missonary: Yes and No. I'm ready, but I'm not building in the Arc region. Brother Jered may want to build it there, but he's a fool if he thinks it's the best place. 'Saradomin light is strongest in the dark.' Book of the Light, 7:32. There's no place more absent of light than in the Skull Islands. That's where we are building the church.

Player: Will Brother Jered be pleased that you disobeyed his orders?

The Missonary: Jered knew what he was getting from me. I'm a holy soldier of Saradomin - I make people respect and fear Saradomin. You think HE would employ me as a builder? I was never going to just build a church and leave. I have arrived, and I am going to be THE Saradominst priest of the Eastern Lands.

Player: Sounds like you been planning this for a while.

The Missionary: I been waiting for the opportunity; 'behaving.' Now, this church, these people - they're mine. This will be my starting flock.

Player: I hope you aren't planning anything that I might have to stop.

The Missionary: We both hope that. I'm no slouch with a mace.

Player: Well, you should get ready, the ship's about to leave.

Ending.

Player: So, you found a spot.

The Missionary: That I did. Enough room to swing a mace, and plenty to preach to Hyu-Ji's home to the sea orphans. You might have heard of them. They're halfway between human and fish, covered in gills, fins and tentacles. As the Book of Light says,"Saradomin brought light to the plants and beasts of the fields." Well, these are MY beasts. And there's the prospect of violence - a great deal of it, in fact.

Player: Why would that be suitable?

The Missionary: Ha! I'm not one the flinch from the harshers duties. The sea orphans have hidden there, having being raided by slavers, and poached by soothsayers. But their biggest threat is the Purists. They see the orphans as an affront; mutants to be wiped out. Which worries the sea orphans, and they have no faith to give them hope. "There was no light in their eyes, and the lack of hope was their downfall." Yes, I'll be good for these people. And I'll get the opportunity to bash a few good skulls with my mace. The skulls of their enemies, of course.

(Spreading The Word)

Beginning.

Player: You seem irritated. What's the issue?

The Missionary: The sea orphans are neglecting to work on the church. They claim they're frightened, while few of them heathens are on strike. I went to the homes of those on strike - I was damned if I would let them desert Our Lord. That was when I spotted the Zamorakian missionaries. They ran from me to their boats, but they had already done their damage. The missionaries had spread muck in the orphans' minds. Teaching like 'Zamorak is the one true god,' and Saradomin clings helplessly to the boot of Zamorak.' And anyone they couldn't convert, they killed. We lost a dozen of the orphans in one day. The Zamorakians must be jealous. Nothing riles a Zamorakians more than a symbol of Saradomin's true faith, and there is none bigger than a church. They want to bring it all down. And that can't happen. These beasts are mine! They are owned by Saradomin!

Player: I'll settle for not seeing them killed. I'll send a ship to rout the Zamorakian missionaries.

The Missionary: They're stationed in the Hook islands. I'm coming along. I haven't cracked any skulls for weeks.

Ending.

The Missionary: We were out maneuvered! While the Pride of Chaos sank, their two remaining ships eluded us and sailed on to Hyu-Ji, spreading more lies. I may as well ditch the whole endeavor. Gah! Not a single sea orphan would meet my eye. The well's poisoned.

Player: Tomlin, my men heard of some of the stories the Zamorakians were telling. Is it true that you were known as 'The Cudgel of Draynor'?

The Missionary: I'm not that man anymore!

Player: They say you went from house to house, beating anyone who negelected their faith. Eleven men and woman were beaten unconscious before the authorities caught you. What kind of a man are you?

The Missionary: That's not how it was! At the time, I thought a bruise was a scant price for an eternity of salvation.

Player: Well, it certainly made it easy for the Zamorakians to turn the orphans against you.

The Missionary: I'll not stand here to be lectured! The Zamorakians may have turn you all against Our Lord, but I'm building the church, flock or no flock.

(Voices Raised in Lamentation)

Beginning.

Player: Are the orphans still working for you?

The Missionary: You know they're not. I'm not in the mood for jokes. Half the sea orphans won't work for me, and the other half are terrified of invasion.

Player: Have the Zamorakian missionaries visited again?

The Missonary: The Zamorakians think they've finished me off. They think the orphans are well and truly turned against me. 'But even when the rivers flow away from Saradomin, they cannot deny their source.' That haven't stopped the malicious spiders from spoiling everything, though. They're in league with the Purist fanatics. They've told them the location of the orphans. So, the godless Purist are fronting at the mouth, furious that these 'abominations' have deigned to survive. They're gathering a fleet in the Scythe Islands. I won't let these Purists burn down my church. And I've not given up on the orphans yet. I've still a plan to claim them for Saradomin, and I can't do that if they're dead.

Player: How would you feel about leading the operation? Meet their two ships head on.

The Missionary: You try to hold me back.

Ending.

The Missionary: The Purists' schooners were fast! Still, we chased the last one away before it could do too much damage.

Player: I heard several reports. Several orphans died, Tomlin.

The Missionary: That may be true, but we ripped holes in the Purist's hull. They must be bailing out as we speak.

Player: My crews believes that you let the ship through. They believe you wanted to remind the orphans that they needed you; that they were weak without you.

The Missionary: Ha! Rumors and lies! Sounds like your crew have been at sea too long.

Player: Just be quite! Whatever it was - one of your 'opportunities' or not - it cost over two dozens of sea orphans their lives.

The Missionary: Look here - they are down to one ship. The orphans are safe. You should be careful what you say.

Player: When you acted, you acted well. But letting people die to prove a point? You should question your actions, Tomlin.

(The Belly of The Whale)

Beginning.

The Missonary: I won't deny that I've been...debating my recent actions. I've taken the wrong path, some way back. I've posed myself the question: when did I take the wrong fork? Was it when I was young, when I was sure a knight's life was for me? Was it when I was cast out from the knights and thought the Church offered truth and gain? Was it when I vowed to bring a strong arm to my faith, as well as the fire conviction? Gah! Or was it later than that? Should I not have come to this dark place? I let those orphans die to the Purists. I felt it was better that a few died so that others would learn! What demon of Zamorak does that? But I can be redeemed. A pilgrimage of meditation and prayer is needed. I hear tell of an island in the Bowl, a place that opens the heart of truth. The natives offer no explanation for it, but it's clearly Saradomin's grace. Please - help me find it. Help save me.

Ending.

Player: My captain tells me that you didn't even set foot on the mysterious island. You haven't lapsed again, have you?

The Missionary: Indeed not! But you're right, I didn't complete my pilgrimage.

Player: Why are you so happy? And why is my crew telling that the voyage was successful?

The Missionary: I have a story to tell you! We passed within sight of a tiny island not on our charts, and we decided to set course for it.

Player: My crew are usually better disciplined than that.

The Missonary: It was the island!

Player: Wait - so you DID set foot on the mysterious island.

The Missionary: No! As we got closer, we saw a Zamorakian ship at dock. I swam to that ship, stealthily boarded and shuck up to eavesdrop. They were making plans - plans for Hyu-Ji. The Zamorakian plan to hire a mercenary fleet with three or four ships, they intend to raze Hyu-Ji. Having heard that, I swam back for the ship at once, and we sailed home.

Player: Without stopping for your own devotions?

The Missionary: The voyage brought me more clarity than twenty pilgrimages. I get to replay the orphans in the matter I know best!

(God's Grace Upon You)

Beginning.

Player: The Zamorakians and mercenaries are harbored near the Purists.

The Missionary: Ridiculous - an armada of hired swords, fanatics, and heretics, all looking to burn down some small towns and their half-built church. Rotten cowards! I would ask for a ship to defend the island, but it won't turn the tide. We have to use our heads instead of our fists.

Player: Are you feeling alright?

The Missonary: Everything in my life has led to this one point. I have a plan that will save lives AND destroy a spiteful and viscous evil. It might even restore me in the eyes of Hyu-Ji.

Player: It's good to see that there's at least a little self-interest in your plan!

The Missionary: Hey, I'm a changed man, but not that changed! The weak link in our enemy is the mercenaries, and I intend to take advantage of it.

Player: How?

The Missionary: A mercenary's loyalty lies within his wallet. I was given gold by Brother Jered - enough to employ workers to build the church, and more besides. I....save the money by getting the orphans to work for free. We could use that gold to encourage a double-cross. The Purist and Zamorakians are currently camped near the Purists' headquarters. What do you think?

Player: It's a fine plan! The ship's ready when you are.

Ending.

Player: They were wiped out? Entirely?

The Missionary: Not entirely, but they're not likely to be causing trouble any time soon. 'When the white rains comes, the fleets of our enemies will be sunk.' The Purist and the Zamorakian forces are crippled. I think we've manage to add a little extra security on the region. And it seems that word of the battle has got back to the orphans. They finished the church. The whole, blasted thing!

Player: I can't think who spread the news around.

The Missionary: And my first congregation had several orphans who had previously cursed me. They may not be so sure of me, but they're willing to listen. I'm grateful to - whoever might have helped me. I'm considered a friend of the people, which is unexpectedly pleasing. I've always gone with respect and fear, rather than regard.

Player: You might find it works better.

The Missionary: Aye, it's worth a try. No doubt I'll pass through here again, but until I do, I thank you.

Player: It's been a pleasure.
