Arisen Dominion

Mine Mausoleum

The Patriarch is an NPC in Hellpoint. He can be found at Arisen Dominion - Mine Mausoleum behind a radioactive waterfall.

 

Patriarch Information:

  • The Patriarch has been imprisoned in a cell deep below the Arisen Dominion, possibly by the Ministry of the Union. He seemingly had his eye removed and is being tortured by the Underworld Monolith.
  • While not explicitly tasked with doing so, finishing this area's Underworld instance by slaying the Fourth Archon Knight will end his quest, allowing you to return his Eye, receiving a Catalyst Conductor and 9999 Axions.

 

Where to find Patriarch

  • Starting from the Arisen Dominion - Mine Mausoleum breach, exit through the door leading onto a set of stairs, in turn leading down into a pond of radioactive substance. Enter the pond and move towards the waterfall in the rear. Passing through it, you will find a hidden passage at the end of which are both the Patriarch and this area's Underworld Monolith.

 

Patriarch Notes and Tips

 

Dialog

Introduction
Oh...
Who's there...?
I can hear you...
Answer: You are the Patriarch.
Oh... I haven't heard that name in a long time.
I didn't think anybody still remembered.
Yes, before you lies the tragic outcome of what the Arisen chose to do to their sovereign.
Ripped to shreds and walled into the deepest corner of his own palace.
All for so-called "progress..."
Well, they got to build their precious AI, and now look - all there is death and destruction.
I was blind.
I should have taken the AI threat more seriously instead of simply considering them backward.
I never thought this Project of theirs would gain so many allies. There are dark influences at work here.
We were played before we could even understand the game.
Why are they keeping me alive? As a trophy, perhaps.
I have no son. My line isn't a threat to anyone.
Hmm... you are a Spawn aren't you? I can still smell the salt of the Pond on you.
Leave me be. You must be doing their bidding; otherwise you'd be dead.

Answer: Why are you trapped in here?

Heh heh heh... why indeed?
So young idiots can be free to enable the plans of their evil masters.
Smash the old culture...
Evil exists, stranger. And God will have His revenge one day or another.
Hmm... you are a Spawn aren't you? I can still smell the salt of the Pond on you.
Leave me be. You must be doing their bidding; otherwise you'd be dead.

Answer: What is that black stone over there?

This... this is one of the gates that connect this reality to the Underworld.
They placed it near my cell, so I can never sleep.
I've seen people commune with these, often never to return.
Those who did lost their minds shortly thereafter.
You'll want to be careful if you enter the Underworld. No one can remain in that place for long.
Hmm... you are a Spawn aren't you? I can still smell the salt of the Pond on you.
Leave me be. You must be doing their bidding; otherwise you'd be dead.

Answer: ...

??
Talk again
You think you're doing the right thing, but you're being used.
As soon as the door is open, they'll send their false prophet and proclaim their heathen scriptures to be the truth.
Leave me be... my blood is boiling. I cannot speak.
Leave me be...
   
After finishing the Underworld instance in this area
The abyss has stopped crushing my mind. What have you done?
Oh, what a relief... I can finally think.

Answer: Give him the Eye of the Patriarch

 
Oh yes... I can see!
Thank you for relieving the pain of this old Arisen fool.
Heh, what a decrepit place...
Still, it's better than being stuck in my own head.
Thank you, human.
Answer: Keep the Eye of the Patriarch (Windowed message stating: "The Patriarch appears lifeless...". Even though he is still moving like before.)
 Talk
 Take this. It's all I have.
 (Get Catalyst Conductor and 9999 Axions)
Talk
This cage has no door... don't waste your time trying to free me.
I can tell you this, though...
You will find a secret passage hidden in the great hall above us, in the left wall.
Perhaps what you'll find there can be of help to you.
 Talk
I will sleep for now... and I shall return to speak the truth to my people.
My sight is connected to my mind again. I will find a new body.
Thanks to you.
Farewell, human.
May God grant you the strength to destroy this evil.
Talk

Returning Later

      If you don't give him his eye when he first asks, he will instantly die and cannot be given the eye again.
