Trotting at a steady pace up to you came the broad form of Onahtah, a brown Ixi who was smiling gently. He bowed his head to you as he halted, and lifted it up to face you again. The greeting was from his dark tones, and it was followed by a few pants. It appeared as if this Ixi had been running, but we shouldn't bring attention to it. It would be rude.
"My name is Onahtah. " He said, smiling again. "I've just traveled far from the dense woods of Meridell to talk to you about my proud home. I was told that the attention to my land has been dwindling lately as war had broken out in other parts of the world. I'm here to remind you that Meridell still exists in the peace we all won together. With your help, we were able to accomplish it twice! Do not forget about your hard work. "
He seemed rather serious when he said it. I guess we did forget about Meridell a bit there...with Maraqua and all, it was rather difficult to keep the agricultural forestland in mind.
"I'm one of the diehard residents of the Meridell forests, and I'm always watching over them along with countless others. Meridell is my birthplace and my residence, and it will forever be that way. It used to be a bustling land filled with tourists and residents alike! But ever since the distant war that had broken out, we had been losing our recognition. I'm here to remind you all, as I said before, that Meridell still stands high and still holds many things for you to take part in. "
"Illusen, the earth faerie that keeps watch over the land, still resides here happily along with me and the rest. Her quests are still here, and she's still giving out the same delicious cookies. She hasn't been receiving as many quests, though. It's worth the try...why not come over and ask her for one? I assure you, the cookies are incredible. "
"The Turmaculus is still living... well... sleeping here! He hadn't moved an inch since you last saw him, I bet. Still, keep your petpets away from him. The lack of visitors may make him slightly hungry. The owner of Cheeseroller has tried to feed him, but he seems to show no interest in cheese. What a pity. "
"And yes, the large, grand Castle of Meridell still stands proudly among the court. Within there, King Skarl is probably feasting and watching his land go about. He has unusually made no motive to get publicity to our land. It worries us at times... "
He stops suddenly, realizing he was rambling on rudely. He quickly apologizes, and sits down. This was all rather sudden...why exactly was he telling us this now?
"I had to run here. . . " he explained, looking back up. "Ixi day is happily approaching! All of our Ixi ancestors seem to have ties to Meridell, so what would be an Ixi day without anyone there? I know. . . " he laughs a bit. "I may sound a bit obsessive. But I love my land! It's my home, my family's home, and my friend's home. "
"So come... make my Ixi day happy and come to Meridell. Spend some time playing Turdle Racing or Ultimate Bullseye. Enjoy the Ixi day festivities as well!"
"Because, for me, the only thing that'd make my Ixi day happy is to see my land prosper again. "
"Will you grant my wish?"
