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

Description

Kassandra was tasked by the mysterious woman to investigate the graveyard in Megara.

Dialogue

  • Mysterious Woman Misthios, may I trade your time for wealth? You look wiser than the average mercenary. Perhaps you're nearly as wise as Athena herself...

  • Kassandra: Wiser and stronger. You might watch your tongue, auntie.
  • Mysterious Woman: You might watch yourself, Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: You speak plainly, auntie.
  • Mysterious Woman: I speak the truth, Kassandra.

  • Kassandra: You know me?
  • Mysterious Woman: Don't pretend to be ignorant of your infamy, Kassandra the Eagle Bearer. I have a series of tasks I thought someone of your reputation could handle. But if you feel you're not up to it...
  • Kassandra: What kind of tasks?
  • Mysterious Woman: To begin, I have a test of judgment. Which god is more dangerous, Poseidon or Apollo? The answer lies in a nearby tomb.
  • Kassandra: This is just a riddle.
  • Mysterious Woman: Riddles are telling. And rewarding, when I give them. Prove your worth to me by going to the graveyard near the Sanctuary of Athena and solving it.

(If the player chooses "I can't help you right now.")

  • Kassandra: I don't have time for riddles at the moment.

(If the player chooses "I'll solve your dead man's riddle.")

  • Kassandra: Fine, I'll figure out this riddle.

Kassandra headed north to the graveyard of Megara. On arriving she read a large tombstone:

  • Kassandra: "Here lies my father, a simple farmer. A lion tore him to pieces as he brought in his grain. May the gods grant him peace."

She also noticed a golden plate resting against the tombstone:

  • Kassandra: A golden plate marked with the sun. An offering dedicated to Apollo and his youthful strength.

Kassandra considered the memorial.

  • Kassandra: Lions are a golden beast with manes like the sun. Surely they are the favorite of Apollo... Does that make him the more dangerous god?

Kassandra considered a second memorial, and read the tombstone:

  • Kassandra: "Here lies my brother, a brave man. He was chosen to confront the enemy threatening our village. But his ship sank, and sharks feasted on his flesh. What little parts were found, I sealed in this tomb."

Kassandra noticed an offering next to the tombstone:

  • Kassandra: A model ship as an offering to Poseidon. Clearly someone feared death in the sea.

Kassandra considered the second memorial.

  • Kassandra: Sharks are under the command of Poseidon, as are all creatures of the sea. Is he the more dangerous god?

Kassandra tried speaking with the Hermit, who replied simply:

  • Hermit: Whoooo.

Finding a small clay tablet resting on a tree, Kassandra read:

  • Kassandra: "Protect us from teeth that tear and beasts that bite." Sounds like a child's prayer.

Beginning to leave, Kassandra a furious man stepped in front of Kassandra and confronted her.

  • Dorykleidas: You! I know who you are. Athena sent you to kill me!
  • Kassandra: Why would you think that?
  • Dorykleidas: I was to be tried for murder, but a great fire burned up the court and all the records. I walked free! But lately I've heard Athena in my dreams, saying I would meet justice. And here you are.

  • Kassandra: Yes, I am the emissary of the gods. Cause me trouble, and I'll end your miserable life.

  • Kassandra: An old woman hired me to come here. You weren't part of that contract. But lose your temper and I might change my mind.

  • Dorykleidas: I know what Athena told me. I'll face my death blade-first!

The man attacked Kassandra, who promptly killed him.

  • Kassandra: I've seen all there is to see here. Now to answer that woman's riddle.

Kassandra headed south to return to the Port of Kechries and the Mysterious Woman.

  • Mysterious Woman: You spent enough time in the graveyard. What did you find?
  • Kassandra: How did you know I actually went?
  • Mysterious Woman: I have my ways.

  • Kassandra: Is there dirt on my sandals? A look in my eye? It seems to me you're good at figuring people out.

  • Kassandra: It seems you may have a gift from Mount Olympos.

  • Mysterious Woman: Perhaps. But I want to know which god you think is more dangerous, Poseidon or Apollo.
  • Kassandra: Why are you so interested in knowing?
  • Mysterious Woman: Because I have two tasks that require the attention of a misthios, but I can trust the easier task to nearly anybody. I'm going to assign the more dangerous one to you, naturally.

  • Kassandra: There was a farmer attacked by a lion while he harvested his crops. An attack by a golden beast under the shining sun... Surely that is the work of Apollo, making him the more dangerous god.
  • Mysterious Woman: Gold is a seductive danger in many ways... Yes, Apollo is a sensible choice.
  • Kassandra: I'm glad you agree.
  • Mysterious Woman: You've wisely considered the subject. I approve. Take this, it's for your judgment.
  • Kassandra: You ask for my judgment, but you seem to be judging me.
  • Mysterious Woman: Am I? Consider this. Lions don't usually eat farmers unprovoked.
  • Kassandra: So you think something is pushing the lions to behave strangely.
  • Mysterious Woman: I'm sure you could find out what that is and help the locals with their lion problem. You'll find them in Argolis, east of the Hypermnestra Camp.
  • Kassandra: I'll pay them a visit.

Kassandra continued her journey with Test of Faith.

  • Kassandra: Both of those gods may be dangerous, but I met a man who claimed Athena sent me to kill him.
  • Mysterious Woman: How strange. If she could hear your words, I'm sure the goddess of justice would be amused.

Kassandra's choices were then narrowed to Apollo and Poseidon.

  • Kassandra: There was a man torn to pieces by sharks on his way to confront pirates. That sounds like the punishment of Poseidon to those who would insult him.
  • Mysterious Woman: Defending a territory no man can invade with deadly force... Poseidon would indeed seem to the greater danger.
  • Kassandra: I'm glad you agree.
  • Mysterious Woman: You've wisely considered the subject. I approve. Take this, it's for your judgment.
  • Kassandra: You ask for my judgment, but you seem to be judging me.
  • Mysterious Woman: Am I? Consider this. A man took great risks to take to the sea. Perhaps you could figure out why.
  • Kassandra: His tomb mentioned pirates. Perhaps they're still a danger.
  • Mysterious Woman: I believe you should find his family in Megaris, south of the Ruined Temple of Apollo.
  • Kassandra: I'll pay them a visit.

Kassandra continued her journey with Test of Character.

Outcome

Kassandra decided which god was most dangerous, Apollo or Poseidon, and relayed her choice to the Mysterious Woman who then sent her on the more dangerous of her two tasks based on the Eagle Bearer's opinion.
