The other day I was flying Coin around Reaver’s Refuge because I wanted to write about flying in DDO, and also because I can, and it is fun.
And indeed it was fun!
As I have done before, I explored while flying. The level designers who put Reaver’s Refuge together made it a wonderfully vertical collection of nooks and crannies; it invites you to wander about and see what you can discover.
So invited, I stumbled into an unfamiliar cave entrance.
There is a full-size Kobold who is going through the story of Xendrick in great detail, and in particular the story of the Stormreaver and the Truthful One. This kobold has a ton of dialogue; I waited to see it all and it felt like it took ten minutes or more to complete.
There are also two baby Kobolds, one of which is asleep, and a teenager-sized Kobold that is not paying attention. It seems teenagers are the same regardless of species.
How long has this been here? I vaguely remember finding something long ago but could not find it again; I’d thought the legend speaker was somewhere on the ground level. Or maybe I hallucinated the entire memory.
Regardless, they are there now, in detail.

I wonder if I will ever stop being surprised by this game?
I hope not.
