Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview: Travail

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

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.

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.

Other Trailers

    A Winter Night's Lazzo 
Pierro: The sages think themselves to be all-knowing, but we alone are wise to the virtue in those acts of folly. In this war, not even a single pawn may be spared... Because on this chessboard, 'checkmate' is not where the game ends.

Pulcinella: We are gathered here today to remember our dear comrade. In honor of her sacrifice, all work should halt for half a day as the nation mourns her passing.
Pantalone: Hehe, merely half a day...People say the Northland Bank's true currencies are blood and tears... But Mayor, even speaking as a banker, that sounds a little unconscionable.
Arlecchino: Rosalyne died in a foreign land. But you heartless businessmen and dignitaries, always with a convenient excuse to remain in the comfort of your homeland... You couldn't hope to understand... So why don't you keep your mouths shut! We don't want to make the children cry...
Tartaglia: Hey, c'mon now, even I don't think this is the right time or place for a fight.
Sandrone: Utterly risible...
Capitano: Though her methods tarnished her honor, Lohefalter's sacrifice is a great pity. Her loss shall not hinder our progress. But Dottore... What of Scaramouche and the Gnosis from Inazuma?
Dottore: Conventional wisdom holds that Divine Knowledge cannot be rationally comprehended. After conquering the Divine Gaze, he will make his next move.

Pierro: It's time to end tonight's foolish theatrics. Right now, you have no captive audience. Let every worthy sacrifice be carved in ice, and with this nation endure for all time. In the name of Her Majesty, the Tsaritsa, we will seize authority from the gods...

Pierro: Absolute peace... Such is the gift from the Tsaritsa, such is Her Majesty's benevolence. Now you rest in this coffin, encased in layer upon layer of ice. But, Rosalyne, I promise you, your final resting place will be the entirety of the "Old World"...

    The Final Feast 
Egeria: The original sin is the fairest: Everyone sinks... Make the most of the final feast, because for the sinners, the curtain call has come.

Lyney: The essence of magic is getting people to believe a lie. And the most important part of it is what people see. People don't realize how much they expect their eyes to tell them the truth. But what you see is not real. It’s all a show. And every part of the show is carefully controlled.
Lynette: Controlled how?
Lyney: By choosing the right time, the right place, and... the right people. Whoever controls these three, controls everything. But keep your eyes peeled, and you might be able to turn things to your advantage. In a nutshell, magic is what you see with your own two eyes.

Arlecchino: Very fun. But it's not enough. Let me make something clear. You think of yourselves as "magicians", but when you're on stage you're first and foremost actors. Good actors hone their craft, to mesmerize the whole crowd.

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.

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"!
State of the Holy Lyre der Himmel

Chapter 3, ACT.V: Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises

Nahida: This foreign Gnosis will only lead to disaster if it stays in Sumeru... But this Electro Gnosis is the prize I obtained after defeating one of your fellow Harbingers. Now, as the one who initiated this cascade of events, shouldn't you pay the corresponding price?
The Doctor: Price? Interesting. What price would you have me pay?
Nahida: ...How about erasing all your other segments?
The Doctor: Hahaha... So this is how you wish to restrict me, the most threatening opponent of the Nation of Wisdom. What you request of me is like plucking out the eyes I have placed in the dimension of time. Segments are extraordinarily difficult to make. They require extremely rare resources and enormous amounts of time and effort. Requiring me to destroy them all here and now... Bravo, a suitably wise decision on your part. Yes, how very interesting... Can I assume that you have long been wary of me? Among all the versions of me, this segment you see now is the most selfish. If it weren't me, your idea wouldn't have worked. What did you see when you were imprisoned? You were observing me, and that's how you know I've long grown tired of their doubts and endless arguments.
Nahida: Like you said, it's difficult to make peace with yourself. Being as smart as you are, have you managed to do that?
The Doctor: ... I see. If you think all those versions of me are worth a Gnosis... Then, deal.

The Doctor: Another chess piece... And where is your Dendro Gnosis?
Nahida: ...Don't be greedy, Harbinger of Snezhnaya.
The Doctor: No, this is a different transaction. If you intend to turn off the Akasha anyway, then there's no further use for the Gnosis of Sumeru, is there? Besides, isn't it the archon's duty to deliver what's desired of the seeker? Oh? Judging from your expression, you don't seem to find the idea very agreeable. Then let's think of it this way... Since you're the God of Wisdom, how about I exchange some knowledge with you?
Nahida: People exchanging knowledge with the God of Wisdom is the stuff of legends, yet here you wish to exchange knowledge for the God of Wisdom's property... Arrogant as that is, it has piqued my interest.
The Doctor: Let me ask you... Have you in all your mighty knowledge ever heard the rumor that "the skies of Teyvat are fake"?
Nahida: ...Huh?
The Doctor: That's the secret hidden by Irminsul concerning the "truth" of this world...
Nahida: ...
The Doctor: Once I finish telling you about this, it will be time for me to say goodbye. With negotiations, we've all gotten what we wanted. I'm very glad I got to meet you like this.
Nahida: Your arrogance may know no bounds, and convictions may mean nothing to you, but I'll still listen to what you have to say.

Secrets and dark truths flow to the mind of the wise. Then... everything falls silent.
Where the Boat of Consciousness Lies

Chapter 4, ACT.V: Masquerade of the Guilty

Ah... the hour of my execution is almost here. For the sinner, the curtain call has come.
I know I may not sound it, but... faced with death, I find myself a little afraid.
Perhaps this is one thing both gods and humans have in common.

Farewell, Neuvillette. I hope you enjoyed the part you played these five hundred years.
