Years later Saint Kaladas built the Chapel to honor the story. After Kaladas died and was laid to rest, people who prayed at his tomb began to see a vision of the Mace on the other side of a long Chasm. Sir Ralvas tried countless times but was unable to reach the mace. He asked the other knights for help but none came to his aid. At last, after months of failing, Ralvas gave up and left the chapel broken and empty. His body was found by Sir Amiel and Sir Juncan, who took his body to the Priory to be laid to rest.
The Hero has answered the call and has set forth to find the remaining Relics of the Crusader. At the Priory of the Nine, they have discovered from Sir Ralvas, that the Mace of the Crusader can be found in the Chapel of Zenithar in Leyawiin.
"You have my tribute, sir knight. In three hundred years, none have passed the gauntlet. In three hundred years, we have never known hope. But for the first time, it seems that someone may succeed where we have failed. I see in you the chance to redeem our souls and restore the order. And now, I must ask you to press forward where I could not. I must ask you to face the challenge of Zenithar."
How did you fail?"I was arrogant and foolhardy. I sought personal glory. I placed my own will and my own lust for fame over the will of the Nine. In facing the challenge of Zenithar, I failed. I tried dozens -- no, hundreds of times to reach the Mace. I fell each time. And each time I awoke in the chapel, I leapt again. I tried to enlist the help of the other knights, but none would come to my aid. The inscription says to "walk in the faith" but even now, I do not know what this means."
What must I do?"Below the Chapel of Zenithar in Leyawiin there is a shrine to the great craftsman. Saint Kaladas. Those seekung the Mace must pray before the shrine. When you bow, you will receive a vision -- or perhaps not. It is unclear. The priests saw that my body never moved, but it felt so real. You will see the Mace, separated from you by a great chasm. The chasm represents your doubt. Your faith must be your guide across it."
My faith will guide me?"This is what I know. As I said, my faith was weak. I did not understand the test and I fell from the platform each time I tried to cross. I have told you all that I know. All that is left you is to prove yourself more worthy than I. If you seek the Mace, travel to Leyawiin's chapel, kneel at the shrine in the undercroft, and let your faith in the Nine by the salvation of us all."
I don't have time for this now."Very well. Return when you are ready, and I will tell you of the Mace of Zenithar."
Mace of Zenithar"You have passed our test and now, I must ask you to press forward where I could not. I must ask you to face the challenge of Zenithar."
"Go with Virtue."
If approached again:
"Have you recovered the Mace of Zenithar?"
Gauntlets of the Crusader"Casimir left with the Gauntlets when the Order dissolved. I heard that he lost them, but I had my own problems to deal with."
Knights of the Nine"Our greed for the relics overshadowed our faith in the Nine. I can only hope that you are stronger than we were."
Mace of Zenithar"Legends say that when Pelinal Whitestrake was slain by the Ayleids, a messenger carried the Mace to the human settlement of Leyawiin as a message. Centuries later, the master craftsman Saint Kaladas built the Chapel of Zenithar in Leyawiin as a tribute to the legend. When Saint Kaladas was laid to rest, those who prayed to Zenithar at his tomb began to receive visions of the Mace of the Crusader."
Mace of Zenithar (After retrieving the Mace)"You've retrieved the Mace! I... I can't beleive[sic] [Do not change this to believe. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.] it! Sir Knight, I bend my knee in awe at your wisdom. You deserve to carry the mace."
Zenithar"Of the original divines, Zenithar is thought to be the most in touch with the mortal realm. Some say that Zenithar has close ties to Kynareth, an idea that is supported by the manner in which the two god's realms interact. Craftsmen devoted to Zenithar are able to create and profit from the materials provided by Kynareth's natural world. The two work in harmony -- the natural world providing for the craftsmen. One cannot revere Zenithar without acknowledging the power of Kynareth."
