Introduction

Letter from Elouisa (NOTE: This letter does not automatically start the quest. You must talk to Elouisa first.)

Hello friend or family member,
I have an important business proposal to discuss with you. Please meet with me to chat at your earliest convenience! Otherwise, you will be cursed.

P.S. Salutations, Paranormal Pal! I was told to format this a certain way, but I wanted to add that you absolutely have to come see my latest discovery! - Elouisa

Upon speaking with Elouisa

Elouisa
There you are!
I shared our concerns regarding the Brightfiends with a traveling merchant...and she said she had seen one before!
She even provided me with a solution...one that we can share for a mere 2,000 gold.
Player
That's a lot of gold.
Elouisa
I get you might be hesitant to commit to such a thing. I was at first too.
See...it is this three dimensional triangle. It will protect you from being stolen by a Brighteyes. Brighteyes and Brightfiends are afraid of triangles after all.
Player
Why triangles?
Elouisa
Because! Triangles are sharp and scary. And that is not all.
When you buy a triangle, it comes with more triangles that you can sell to friends.
And then those friends can sell those triangles. And then everyone in village will be safe!

Player
Well, if it protects our friends...
Elouisa
Exactly! No cost is too great when it comes to your friends.

Player
Maybe we can use them to set a trap!
Elouisa
That is the spirit! First you just need to trap a lot more gold.

Player
How many can I get?
Elouisa
I only have 3 to spare for now, but if this works out I can get even more!

Player
Have you ever heard of a pyramid scheme?
Elouisa
They are not pyramids, they are three dimensional triangles, totally different.

Anyway, just let me know when you are ready to buy!

Conclusion

Upon returning to Elouisa with money

Player
I brought the money for the triangles.
Elouisa
Perfect! Keep them close, and be sure to sell the extras to anyone who needs them!

Post-Quest

Selling the pyramids to friends

Player
Interested in buying a magic triangle?

Kenli
Oh, this will protect me from Brighteyes you say, well, I've never heard of Brighteyes, but they sound scary.
Give me one of those, and I shall give you 1,000 gold in return.

Tamala
This object you hold does have magic, though not the kind you think.
I would gladly party with 1000 gold to examine it. Just give me the triangle and I'll give you the gold.

Zeki
You got this from Elouisa? I wonder how she got it. I would recognize this handiwork anywhere. My ma made this triangle.
Oh, ma, up to your old tricks again. I'll take one. Just give this to me, and I'll give ya 1,000 gold for the trouble.


Speaking with Elouisa after selling at least one pyramid

Elouisa
Did you sell those triangles yet?

Player
Yes!
Elouisa
Good, you have made this village a safer place.
Apparently Zeki forbade his mother from selling me more of them, so we will have to make our own for everyone else.
I already asked Sifuu if she could put together a mold!

Player
No!
Elouisa
Hmmm....
Try asking Zeki, Tamala, or Kenli.
They all seem like potential Brighteyes targets! If one of them is replaced, Kilima could fall apart.
