Collection of Recording Crystals

Recordings from the tower

Somewhere hidden in the confines of the Interstitial space between floors 3 and 4, a collection of audio recordings was found. It is unknown as to where they came from, or what time they were recorded. The crystals are unmarked, and uncatagorized. When placing a crystal in the palm of your hand, they may be activated, playing back the sound recorded on them.

Crystal Four

“Furnace!”   [a mixture of groans can be heard]   [a heavy stone door swings open]   A sharp angry voice rings out “Who the fuck are you? How did you get here?”   A voice responds confused, “Who are you??”   “It doesn't matter who I am” the voice continues   [A pause is heard]   “It doesn't matter who you are . Other souls are just energy for my uses anyways.”   [Another pause]   “Clockwork being make much better servants than anything living anyways”   Someone responds “Well let me introduce you to my servant then”   [Heavy footsteps are heard, and the sound of a sword scraping the floor]

Is heard]   [a quick but violent scuffle is heard, followed by slurred words]   [footsteps come from below, followed by a gasp]   [A pause is heard]   A southern drawl whispers “oh no”   A quiet voice responds “I was just saying hi…”   [two impacts are heard, one quickly after another]   [the pained breathing/snoring ends]   A gruff voice is heard, slightly farther away. “I didn't want to do that.”   [footsteps retreat, the voice grows more faint]   The gruff voice continues “He wouldn't have had much life after that anyways. I was being merciful.”
  Crystal Seven
“Really. I don't give a fuck”   “You don't need to know who I am. You don't need to know why I’m here”   [a rising crackling crescendo is heard]   “Your city is in my way. AND I need more soul coins. Tell me where you have your gear for the cursed desert, and I’ll let some of you live.”   [stammering is heard]   “I-i-i-i don't - we don't--”   “Ah. It’s over there, is it? Yes, I can see you glancing that way.”   [incredibly loud crackling energy is heard]   [a cacophony of roars is heard]   [ice crackling is heard]   “There wont be anyone left except my beast.”   [screams and roars are heard, among the destruction and crashing]   “Thank you, Dark One”  
  Crystal Eight
“How do we seriously not have an encryption team on this document yet? This happened so long ago”   [Rustling papers]   “No, I don't want to open a new expedition to Greenminster. Did you even read the document?”   “Fuck it, just put it down on the desk in the interstitial.”   [a door slams]  


Crystal Nine

“Hey there son. You really don't want to go in here, you know that right.”   “Yes but”   [soft wind is heard]   “Really. This place is entirely cursed. The stories aren't kidding”   “I know but”   “You've read the old records right?”   “Right…”   “And?”   “And… everyone that enters the town is unable to leave…”   “Correct.”   [trees and brushes rustle]   “But I just thought”   “STOP THINKING”   “I thought maybe I could reach the top! We’re so close!”   “Damnit, shut up, or I WILL seal you back in your house.”  

Crystal Ten

[sounds of crunching is heard]   [metal clinking on porcelain]   [unintelligible background conversations are occurring]   “So, you know if the elevator is complete yet?”   [a clunk of a cup being put down is heard]   “As far as I know, no. Mayor hasn't talked about it. Hey pass me the butter”   [a sliding sound is heard]   “I think they gotta get something from the tower anyways”   [Laughter]   “Yeah, good luck with that. No one’s been able to get there in what, 800 years?’   “814 actually. But mayor says he’s got a plan.”

  The crystals may be recorded over by using a Clockwork Bug , by fitting the crystal into the clockwork.
