<snore> <slurp> ...Hm? Oh, I beg your pardon, I must have dozed off again. Ever since I turned three hundred, I find I can barely stay awake.

Sandman is my name, and I had...something for you. What was it again? Ah, yes─a request. I would have you seek out a young amaro who has newly arrived in Il Mheg.


But ere I go into the details, tell me: know you the nature of our community, Wolekdorf? It is a place where those of us who have attained intelligence come to live out their days.


We amaro are born mindless beasts, you see, but if we abide among men for a century or so, we may awaken to abilities long lost in our kind, speech not least of all.


That those who have awakened might know of Wolekdorf, we asked our Nu Mou friends to place enchantments on the crystals found throughout Il Mheg. These crystals call out to our brethren across Norvrandt, drawing them hither.


However, the aforementioned young amaro was not prepared for what he found here─that is, other speaking amaro─and no sooner did I welcome him than he bolted and ran.


Though he is wary of us, having served men until recently, I believe he will trust you. Please, will you not find him and persuade him to come here? To help you on your way, he fled to the west of the settlement.


<yawn> Talking is weary business... Please, find that young amaro and persuade him to come here. He fled to the west of the settlement.
<gasp>
What will you say?
Sandman sent me. It's all right to talk.
S-Sandman? You mean...the other fellow who can talk? I had no idea there were others like me...
Y-You know that I can talk? There was another fellow like me. Do you know him?
Well now, a whole settlement of talking amaro! That must be the place he wanted to show me.
My name is Tonatiuh. My master was a traveling merchant. One day, I discovered that I could speak.

I was so happy, and I thought my master would be happy too. But when I spoke to him, he looked as if he'd seen a ghost and abandoned me.


Since that day, I've been wandering the land by myself. I'd heard of Il Mheg, and I thought it would be nice to see it. But it seems the idea wasn't my own at all.


This settlement, Wolekdorf... It sounds like a nice place...but I don't want to live there.


I've been alone for a long while. I don't feel comfortable around others anymore. Not even other amaro.
