Sunken Knowledge

"So you are the one the tides of fate carried here to stop this trangression. I had watched this pathetic spirit's attempt to avoid her fate with some amusment … but I knew it would eventually have to come to an end."

Why didn't you just stop her yourself? "Where would be the fun in that? The individual yarns of fate do not concern me. It is the tapestry they weave that I watch and record. All threads, even yours, only make up a small part of the whole."
So you know my fate? "I do. I can see your future … and your past. The yarn of your life is interesting, perhaps even amusing, one might say. It's spun from a strong thread, to be sure, but all threads will eventually run out."
Can you tell me anything about my future? "No."
Why did you summon your followers here? "I did no such thing. Like moths to flame, my followers are simply drawn to dark mysteries, and this one was simply irresistible for them. It's a wonder more of them didn't die."
You don't care whether your followers live or die? "No. Why would I?"
If there's nothing more, then I will go. "Yes. That is what you will do. First though, I have something for you. A gift, you might say."
Is this gift something I actually want? "Whether you want it or not is irrelevant. I like to reward those who amuse me, and this is your reward. You will take it."

After the quest:

"Do you dare to ask more of me?"

I wish to leave this shrine.
