Those of the Explorers' League and The Reliquary are very much alike: Archaeology is our religion, yet we have both fallen from the pure faith.

Our methods have not differed as much as they pretend. We are but a shadowy reflection of them.

It would take only a nudge to make them like us. To push them out of the light...

Krasarang Wilds

Of course the Explorer's League stumbled into a foolish situation and are in over their heads.

And of COURSE we are going to take advantage of it.
