Dialogue Edit

Aysa Cloudsinger says: Hop in.

The balloon begins to take off.

Ji Firepaw says: <Name>, where's Master Shang?
Aysa Cloudsinger says: ...Ji, they were in the Wood of Staves. You know where Master Shang is now.
Ji Firepaw says: Bah, let a pandaren hope, would you? I'm going to miss the old man.
Aysa Cloudsinger says: Ji, be respectful when we speak to Shen-zin Su.
Ji Firepaw says: When am I not respectful? You hurt me, Aysa.
Aysa Cloudsinger says: I might if you embarrass us.

The balloon comes close to Shen-zin Su...

Aysa Cloudsinger yells: Shen-zin Su, we are the descendants of Liu Lang. We've sensed your pain, and we want to help.
Aysa Cloudsinger yells: What ails you Shen-zin Su? What can we do?
Shen-zin Su says: I am in pain, but it warms my heart that Liu Lang's grandchildren have not forgotten me.
Shen-zin Su says: There is a thorn in my side. I cannot remove it.
Shen-zin Su says: The pain is unbearable, and I can no longer swim straight.
Shen-zin Su says: Please grandchildren, can you remove this thorn? I cannot remove it on my own.
Aysa Cloudsinger yells: Of course, Shen-zin Su! But your shell is large, and I do not know where this thorn could be.
Shen-zin Su says: It is in the forest where your feet do not walk. Continue along the mountains and you will find it.
Aysa Cloudsinger yells: We will find it, and we will remove it. You have our word!

The balloon changes course, searching for this "thorn".

Ji Firepaw says: A thorn? And I left my tweezers at home.
Ji Firepaw says: How could such a thing cause pain to something so large?
Aysa Cloudsinger says: We'll know soon enough.

Along the shore the wreck of a large boat can be seen, buried in Shen-zin Su's side!

Ji Firepaw says: Are you seeing what I'm seeing?! Is that a boat?!
Aysa Cloudsinger says: That's a bigger thorn than I was expecting.
Ji Firepaw says: And those aren't pandaren down there. They look furless.
Ji Firepaw says: It looks like they crashed. I don't think they're here for trouble.
Aysa Cloudsinger says: Removing this thorn may be more complicated than we thought.
Aysa Cloudsinger says: We should let Elder Shaopai know and then plan our next move.

The balloon veers inland, through the forest, and then over Mandori Village. Players leap out and descend by way of a parachute...
