"What are you talking about? What civilisation? I crossed the Buina a week ago and heard all sorts of stories as I rode through the country. Apparently there are water sprites here, myriapodans, chimerea, flying drakes, every possible filth. You should be up to your ears in work.
- Stories, well, I've heard them too. Half of them are either made up or exaggerated. No Dandilion. The world is changing. Something's coming to an end."
