I am Philip. (cynical) One of the twelve poor fools burdened with the honour of guarding the oh so holy grail. We revered it, but over the decades I have seen it destroy the love and fellowship we once had. The accursed thing is of no God this side of Tartarus. I doubt that Christ ever even saw this cup. So you see I want you to rid us of it. Please.

Well, it's not just me you see. My friend Edgar, one of the last sane knights, and myself recognise this 'test' as a manifestation of the madness of our former leader Tobias. I've been watching you and you seem to be effective. When you see Edgar, tell him you've come about the chest. (BREAK) I'm sorry. I cannot talk further. I have business to attend to. Goodbye for now.

How has the grail affected the guardians like this?
1
1
0
The weight of it can affect the mind. Some fifty years ago, a number of us became dissatisfied with the ravings of our former leader Tobias De Treece and a faction of knights split apart from him. He waited his time and ruthlessly destroyed us. If you meet him do not listen to the lies he will tell you about that time. About myself and Edgar. The last remnants of that faction. The last that are sane.

Forgive my bitterness stranger, but I have seen that bauble of Tartarus destroy more than one mind. I've watched my fellow guardians, once good men of God slaughter each other in madness.

He was something of a fool. His faith became more blindly solid, the more the rest of us became affected by the presence of the grail. Eventually, he believed himself to be the only one left not serving daemons.

I think I trust you friend. You seem of good character. So, I will give you a little help. Though I risk myself in doing so. See the corpse there. He was a tool of Mallik's. The substance covering him will kill you if you approach him too closely. You need the key he has however, to proceed. How you get it, I don't know.

I think perhaps I'd best let you find out for yourself. If our glorious leader Tobias were to discover I'd said anything to damage his precious test, he would undoubtedly have me eviscerated before the grail.

Grailstone, as the name suggests, is the magickal material from which the grail is fashioned. The other knights believe it fell from the Lord on high. I, however, consider it to have been sweated up through the caves from Hell.

Geffrye. I don't trust him. He was the architect of Aeternis. He seems unaltered by the long years in the light of Grailstone. (BREAK) By this very token, I suspect him. Noone can live down here without that evil substance corrupting or torturing them in some way.

The brothers managed quite well. Moneys made the order a significant power for some time and they still wield a great deal of influence. (BREAK) Now, only the highest and most trusted members of their lodges know about Aeternis and even they have no idea of the full story.

It's strange, but sometimes when a body is damaged beyond even the grailstone's ability to heal, the soul of the person lingers and manifests as a spirit. A further torment of this place. Watch your step friend. The ghost by the well has been here for centuries more than any one of we knights.

Yes, this refers to the Scottish Freemasons. When the Templar order fell, Templar riches were used to infiltrate this organisation. The heads of their society know of Aeternis, but not in any great detail.

We were the best of our kind. The finest fighting men of Christendom. But even we twelve, dedicated as we were, fell under the evil influence of the grailstone and the grail. Some fifty years ago, a number of us became dissatisfied with the ravings of our former leader Tobias and a faction of knights split apart from him. He waited his time and ruthlessly destroyed us. If you meet him do not listen to the lies he will tell you about that time. About myself and Edgar. The last remnants of that faction. The last that are halfway sane.

It was built by the Byzantines. They were a vicious, merciless people that had a dwelling built here nearly four thousand years ago. Little of it is accessible now.
