Every wisdom has a time and place, and times are changing for those of us living here on Shen-zin Su. For this lesson, I would ask two things of you.
For the first, I hold a flame in my hand. Gather your wits, and when you think you are ready, attempt to snatch the flame.
Should you succeed, I want you to then climb to the top of this temple and burn the Edict of Temperance that you find there.
The fact that you were able to snatch the flame so easily is no small feat.
The Edict of Temperance is a scroll of wisdom passed down from my elder's elders. Wisdom from a more peaceful time.
Every lesson has its time and place, and with darkness on the horizon, the time for this particular wisdom has passed.
The burning of the scroll is an acceptance of tidings to come and a promise to action. Your hand carried the flame, and I suspect that it will continue to do so in the future.
You will receive:
- Master Shang Xi is standing in the entrance of the temple.
Upon snatching the flame:
- Master Shang Xi says: On your first try! Now, take the flame to the top of the temple and burn the scroll that you find there.
