Heavensward 3.0 Story Part 7: Iceheart’s story

It was time to return to the House Foretemps.

Alphinaud started doubting himself again. He kinda felt like we shouldn’t stay in Ishgard.

I was like “WTF dude, you can’t just bail on all the people who helped you INCLUDING ME!”

I finally convinced him and we went to see Aymeric.

On a side note, I was kinda curious if he was openly admitting his relationship with Rhaqui by now, or not. Rha had told me stories about their struggles and Aymeric being quite shy and also very busy with his work…

Anyway, Aymeric didn’t lose a word about Rhaqui. :\ Maybe I need to talk to him in private without the guys and make sure, he’s treating Rha alright!

Back at the manor, Tataru got really excited.

She had crafted new clothes for Alphinaud! ö.ö

He looked quite mature and pretty cool in those.

Where were my clothes?

Tataru assumed, I would get new clothes on my own. :\ I really want her to make me a nice outfit ;_;

Anyway, Alphi dragged me out in order to find a way of contacting Ysayle, Lady Iceheart, the person harboring the promal Shiva.

First place to look was the Amphitheatre.

No sign of Shiva. Only some Hereitcs showed up in a fight-lusty attitude.

They transformed into beasts while fighting! Something was clearly wrong with those and their cult was clearly shady.

Needless to say, we slayed them down. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. If they only had been slightly more useful.

Instead, we checked with the local guards in Coerthas as reports of Heretic sightings had reached our ears.

We found out that a signal fire needed to be used to call Ysa.

She actually came!

“We would like to speak to you about stopping Nidhogg’s attack on Ishgard.”, I said.

Estinien was carrying one of Nidhogg’s eyes. With this power and Ysayle’s support, we might be able to convince Nidhogg to spare Ishgard.

It was then, when Ysa told us a story about Shiva.

Shiva lived in Ishgard, side by side with the dragons, in peace and harmony. She formed a bond with the dragons, especially with one called Hraesvelgr. They became lovers. But more in a spiritual way than in a physical one <.<;

But dragons live longer than humans and they would be separated by her death eventually.

They found a simple solution: He would eat her so their sould would be united or something.

Hraesvelgr was alone nevertheless and Shiva’s voice would not speak to him anymore. He was super lonely for decades!

2015-06-20 Heavensward Story 3-0 82

I had to help the dragons. Somehow, I had the feeling that the injustice and tragedies they had experienced were forcing them to attack Ishgard nowadays. Dragons were intelligent beings. They were way wiser than any of us. But as they lived so long, they would never forget any injustice done to them. There had to be more to this whole story.

Suddenly, my heart ached!

I found myself back in the realm of the Mothercrystal.

2015-06-20 Heavensward Story 3-0 85

The depleted crystals gathered around my. The seal of the Warrior of Light had been destroyed, but…

A ray of light emerged from my soul, letting one of the crystals shine again.

2015-06-20 Heavensward Story 3-0 86

Was this a hint that I was on the right way to save Eorzea again? Would I sson be able to light all the other crystals and banish the Ascians once and for all?
