Just a general thought on rpg mystery.
The quest log, auto journal, quest marker etc in modern rpgs really (over)streamline the questing to travel-kill-click.
In old-school rpg, you need talk to an npc or read a scroll, digest the conversation and find connections to the environment before you actually do anything to advance the quest.
So has anyone read all the related lore/codex? Anything interesting or related to the use of the orb?
Apparently the only codex gained for it was the title codex. There wasn't an actual codex for killing the Dreadful Entity under Epic Enemies.
