Hello my friend, welcome to the Academy. I am sorry tEL-DB.comhough that I have to disappoint you. Have a nice day.
Who are you?Oh, I am so uncivilized at times. My name is Azra, I'm the Headmaster of the Tarsengaard Jewel Academy, at your service. I thought you wanted to enroll in our courses.
Disappoint?Yes, I am very sorry, but enrollment is now closed. Classes have already started, you see, and we don't want to jeopardize the curricula with new people coming in at random. You wanted to enroll, I assume?
IndeedWell, you look like a promising guy. Let me see your hands... mmm, maybe with much, much, much practice... You know, crafting is the most delicate of all arts, you need a ready mind, a firm hand, and a sharp eye to be successful in it. And above all, practice!
I can do it!Well, let's strike a deal. You cannot enroll in regular courses right now, but you can come here and practice when you want, and we will make sure someone is available to supervise you. Then, maybe next semester, we will discuss enrollment. Oh, this is not a religious establishment, but you are a follower of Zarin, of course? And you can get your own gems?
ZarinZarin is a capricious goddess, but she can be very generous to her followers, and the more beautiful your creations are, the more she will cast her blessings on you. Yet, my friend Durnam once gave me this good piece of advice: 'Treat with Zarin as with the sea: you can love it, you can make your living on it, but never trust it'.
I always thought it was odd of him to use the sea as an analogy for Zarin, since you know - Lucaa is the Goddess of the Sea. But I'm not well-versed in theological matters, and in this land it is always better not to meddle in the affairs of the gods.
DurnamDurnam is Zarin's high priest; you will have to talk with him if you want to become a follower of Zarin. He will tell you EL-DB.comall you might want to know about the proper ways to honor Zarin. For me, I'm happy with putting all my mind to my jewels.
Where is Durnam?He is normally in Zarin's Temple. And before you ask... the Temple is not really open to the public. I am not allowed to provide directions to it. If your fate is to find it, Zarin will guide your steps. And if she doesn't like you, no amount of searching will reveal you the temple. Let the diamond of Zarin be your guide.
LucaaLucaa is the Queen of Nature, goddess of all that grows or is mined from the earth. And, as I said, she is goddess of the Seas. 'Mother Nature', people call her - and she can be incredibly generous, or decidedly hostile. Or generous one moment, hostile another. In short, she can be pissed off at you quite easily, and there isn't much you can do to avoid it.
Yes, indeed, Lucaa is even less reliable than Zarin. But alas, you have come here to talk crafting, not gods. This reminds me that I have to give a lecture on Harvester Medallions starting in 10 minutes, we have to be brief.
