Eraicon-Memories Eraicon-Odyssey

Penelope's Shroud was a virtual representation of one of the Kassandra's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.

Description

kassandra accepted the mysterious Elpenor's request to recover the Shroud of Penelope.

Dialogue

Kassandra departed the shore and Elpenor to recover Penelope's Shroud. The island of Ithaka rested across the waters. Kassandra snuck up to the ruins.

Working through the ruins, Kassandra came across Odessa, imprisoned in a wooden cage. Kassandra freed Odessa after killing the guards.

  • Odessa: Hey, get me out of here!
  • Kassandra: Let's get out of here. Can you fight?
  • Odessa: I'd be happy to.

(The above continues with the side quest A Small Odyssey)

Kassandra found the shroud, intending to escape the Palace.

  • Kassandra: Penelope's shroud. In the flesh. I mean cloth.

Having found the shroud, Kassandra left Ithaka and travelled to the Temple of Zeus near Sami. There, she found Elpenor and his servant.

  • Elpenor: Kassandra. Good news, I hope.

Kassandra with the shroud

Kassandra took out the shroud.

  • Kassandra: Safe and sound.
  • Elpenor: Well done. And now the shroud is yours.
  • Kassandra: You don't want it? After all that?
  • Elpenor: I gained something more valuable today. For your troubles, misthios.

Elpenor's servant tossed a bag of coins to the table before Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: If I knew any better, I'd think you were testing me.
  • Elpenor: Perhaps.

The servant then handed Kassandra a scroll.

  • Elpenor: You did well, misthios. Tell me, how do you feel about killing a general in Megaris? Do this for me, and earn double what you earned today. Are you up to the task? It would take you far away from Kephallonia. So far away you might never return.

  • Kassandra: Generals bleed like anyone else.
  • Elpinor: Good.

  • Kassandra: I'm not an assassin.
  • Elpenor: There's a first time for everything.

  • Elpenor: What do you say?

(If players choose "Who is the general I have to kill?")

  • Kassandra: Who is this general?
  • Elpenor: They call him "The Wolf."
  • Kassandra: He do something to offend you?
  • Elpenor: Yes... He's costing me drachmae. He's not good for business.

(If players choose "What can you tell me about Megaris?")

  • Kassandra: Anything I should know about Megaris?
  • Elpenor: Only that it's the most valuable land in the Greek world, from a military perspective of course. Unfortunately for Megarians, it has two very powerful neighbors who just can't seem to play nice. In the tug of war between Korinth and Athens, Megaris is the rope.

(If players choose "Why choose me?")

  • Kassandra: Why me?
  • Elpenor: Because no one knows who you are. You're invisible.

(If players choose "I'll take the contract.")

  • Kassandra: I accept.
  • Elpenor: Splendid. You'll need a boat. You have one, don't you?

  • Kassandra: Of course.

  • Kassandra: If I had a boat, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
  • Elpenor: A shame. It's too far of a swim I'm afraid, even for you.
  • Kassandra: I'll find one.

  • Elpenor: Good. I hope it's sturdy.
  • Kassandra: And why is that?
  • Elpenor: The seas are much more dangerous, I'm afraid. War is coming, and the Wolf is on the wrong side.

(If players choose "What war?")

  • Kassandra: War? With who?
  • Elpenor: The entire Greek world is at each other's throats. What rock have you been hiding under, exactly?
  • Kassandra: Kephallonia.

(If players choose "Why should I trust you?")

  • Kassandra: And how do I know you're on the right side?
  • Elpenor: Because I'm the one paying you.

(If players choose"I'm right for the job.")

  • Kassandra: You won't be disappointed.
  • Elpenor: When your job in Megaris is done, come find me at Pilgrim's Landing in Phokis.

Outcome

Kassandra helped Elpenor to recover Penelope's shroud, but was offered to keep it instead. Elpenor offered her a contract to hunt down a general known as the Wolf.
