Trial by Lightning - Mhaura
TBA
Trial by Lightning - Cloister of Storms
You are standing near the protocrystal, looking at it.

As if sensing the presence of the protocrystal, the tuning fork of lightning begins to softly resonate...

The camera begins to wildly tilt and zoom, then opens on sweeping views of the battlefield. Ramuh is speaking, but he is not named.

...Who interrupts my slumber?
Was I dreaming for but an instant, or an eternity? The radiance that illuminates all, lost...
Which is the real world, and which is the dream? Am I...?

The scene focuses on Ramuh, sleeping inside his crystal.

But enough... Wager your life to prove your skill. Let us see if you can provide me with a moment of amusement.
Are you ready, you who is one yet many?

As the camera zooms out, you can be seen standing before Ramuh's crystal, staring into it. Ramuh Prime appears before you, then you regain control of your character to face him in battle.

Trial by Lightning - Cloister of Storms
Ramuh Prime stands before you peacefully. He speaks, but is not named.

...Impressive, child of Vana'diel.

Ramuh Prime is released and appears back in the crystal.

We sleep in a time that is neither an instant, nor an eternity.
Is this world a dream, or is the dreamworld an illusion...?
Very well, child of Vana'diel. I will grant you a fragment of my power to bring order to chaos.

You are teleported out of the battlefield and regain control of your character.

Trial by Lightning - Mhaura
If The Puppet Master has not been completed

Ripapa : Is it true?
You really defeated a prime avatar!?
Ripapa : ...I see.
The prime avatar said that to you?
I wonder what it could mean?
A doll hovers nearby
??? : ...There is no need to understand...
...You will forget what I have said...
Ripapa : Y-You, you're...!?
Camera pans away, you can barely see a tarutaru approaching as the screen flashes white, and you find yourself back in the battlefield, the doll talking to you, and the taru barely noticeable in the background
???: ...You have power...
???: ...Will you allow...that power...
...to slumber...for eternity...?
???: Surrender...that power...to me...
and I...will craft...that power...
into whatever...you desire...
???: Choose...
What...do you desire...? What...do you seek?
???: Listen...to the voice without--my voice--with your ears...and your heart...
Bring me...
Power...
Higher...
Deeper...
.....
Stronger...
Screen fades back, you're back in Mhaura
Ripapa : Uh?
Huh? I went all spacey-wacey for a moment there...
Ripapa : Um, excuse me, but who were you again?
Was I speaking with you? What were we talking about?
Ripapa : Did I already tell you I'm a researcher from the Rhinostery in Windurst?

??? : We m-m-meet again...
...There is no need for violence, adventurer...
??? : ...I just wish to ask you som-m-me questions.
...Why do you think the avatars...give power to people...without a reason...?
??? : ...And...have you...felt the power...of the avatars...?
??? : Hahaha...
...Rather than strength without purpose...
...you should be seeking...true power...
Screen goes black
??? : Choose...
What...do you desire...? What...do you seek?
You have a choice of rewards, pick one
