Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview: Travail

    Intro 
Aether: We had no time to say goodbye, so let's not call it that.

Dainsleif:
The war has already begun. It is just a continuation of past battles.
The gods goad us on with the promise of their seven treasures. Rewards for the worthy. The doorway to divinity.
Yet buried in the depths of this world lies smoldering remains, a warning to those that dare trespass.
"That throne in the sky is not reserved for you"
But mortal arrogation never stops.
None will escape the flames.
See for yourself.

    Dainsleif's Chapter Narrations 
ACT.PROLOGUE (Mondstadt) - The Outlander Who Caught the Wind
The dragon who defended Mondstadt for a millennium finally faces his perturbation.
What does freedom really mean, when demanded of you by a god?

ACT.I (Liyue) - Farewell, Archaic Lord
The God of Contracts, senselessly slaughtered as his people watched on in horror.
In the end, he will sign the contract to end all contracts.

ACT.II - (Inazuma) Omnipresence Over Mortals
In the secluded land of the immortal Shogun, the Bakufu rules eternal.
But what do mortals see of the eternity chased after by their god?

ACT.III - (Sumeru) Truth Amongst the Pages of Purana
The God of Wisdom's enemy is wisdom itself, and the oasis of knowledge is a mirage in the desert of ignorance.
In the city of scholars there is a push for folly, yet the God of Wisdom makes no argument against it.

ACT.IV - (Fontaine) Masquerade of the Guilty
The God of Justice lives for the spectacle of the courtroom, seeking to judge all other gods.
But even she knows not to make an enemy of the divine.

ACT.V - (Natlan) Incandescent Ode of Resurrection
The rules of war are woven in the womb: the victors shall burn bright, while the losers must turn to ash.
When the God of War shares this secret with the Traveler, it is because she has her reasons.

ACT.VI - (Snezhnaya) Everwinter Without Mercy
She is a god with no love left for her people, nor do they have any left for her.
Her followers hope only to be on her side when the day of her rebellion against the divine comes at last.

In the perpetual meantime of a sheltered eternity, most are content to live, and not to dream.
But in the hidden corners where the gods' gaze does not fall, there are those who dream of dreaming.

ACT.███ - (Khaenri'ah) The Dream Yet to Be Dreamed
Some say a few are chosen and the rest are dregs, but I say we humans have our humanity.
We will defy this world with a power from beyond.

    Outro 
Dainsleif:
Now, you who has set foot in this world.
Your journey has reached its end, but one final doorway remains.
Step forth, if you have understood the meaning of your journey.
Defeat me, command me to step aside, show me that you are worthier than I to rescue her.
Then, the threads of all fate will be yours to re-weave.

My memory has all but faded completely... But I will always remember how much she too, loved these flowers.

Gameplay Quotes

    Gnostic Hymn 
Once, there was a glorious kingdom established among the heavens.
From that kingdom came a crowned heir, tasked with seeking out the Genesis Pearl from the Kingdom of Darkness.
The first crowned heir began her journey of seeking the pearl.
But she was deceived, and the memory of her noble origins faded.
She now believed that she was the queen of the Kingdom of Darkness.
But take heart, a second crowned heir had already taken up the path where the first had stumbled.
This is the story of your journey, of your tale to be told.

    Dialogues 
PROLOGUE, ACT.II
Venti: Welcome back. Ah, this is the Holy Lyre! You managed to retrieve it! The pattern of flowing wind carved on the rosewood... and the strings still feel cool to the touch too. Oh, the memories...
Jean: What do you think, Venti? Can you summon Dvalin?
Venti: Hmm... Although this lyre is the real thing, I doubt that it's going to work. As you can see, the lyre has been through a thousand years of history. It's Anemo power has run dry. In this condition, you couldn't play music fit for even Diluc's tavern with it...
Diluc: Bards fight to get on the stage of my tavern. Don't make assumptions!
Paimon: Ugh... Is that really important right now, Master Diluc!? And you—Did you just borrow the Holy Lyre to play music for drunkards to hear?
Venti: Hehe.
Paimon: What do you mean "Hehe"!?
Venti: Anyway, we won't be able to call Dvalin with it. The lyre itself is fine, but the strings... You're up, outlander!
(whichever option doesn't matter, as Venti replies with...)
Venti: Relax! It's not broken. It's just that the intensity of its Anemo power has greatly diminished. Do you still have Dvalin's Teardrop Crystal with you?
(the Traveler nods in agreement)
Venti: Great! Try to use it on the Holy Lyre.
(the Traveler uses the crystal on the lyre)
Venti: It worked, as expected.
Jean: This youthful glow...
Paimon: Praising yourself? Really?
Jean: ...I was talking about the Holy Lyre.
Venti: Thanks to our Traveler friend having purified the crystal, the Holy Lyre won't continue to lose power. That said, its power is far from replenished. It'd be great if we could get more tears.
(if the Traveler chooses "We'll help"...)
Paimon: How can we gather more?
(otherwise, the above line is skipped for other options)
Venti: I can surmise that Dvalin will already be crying... Suffering alone in some deserted place...
Jean: Dvalin...
Paimon: Poor baby...
Jean: This is not something that an Honorary Knight can accomplish alone. I will mobilize the rest of the knights to assist. When you get the Teardrop Crystal, please let our Honorary Knight perform the purification process.
Venti: Heroes supporting each other and setting out on a journey together... How exciting! Lemme come up with a song for you...
Paimon: Is that all you're going to do? Just sing?
Venti: Wouldn't be much of a bard if I didn't now, would I?
Paimon: Hmph. You're so cheeky... You deserve an ugly nickname. Oh, Paimon knows! From now on, you'll be known as "Tone-Deaf Bard"!
