Lore Entry # Location
TRANSMIT - initiate the Venetian signal - RECEIVE - initiate the Mozart cadence - I FEED AND TRAIN MY CHIRPING PETS - initiate the Masonic cipher - THE VENGEANCE OF HELL BOILS IN MY HEART - sounds Myra's alarm - THE EARTH A HEAVENLY KINGDOM, AND MORTALS LIKE THE GODS - beware the sailors of Bari - WITNESS - The Manna of Saint Nicholas. Entry 1
Albion Ballroom Upstairs, on the opposite side of the friends and family seating. Only while on The Christmas Conspiracy mission.
They buried Santa Clause in Myra. His holy cadaver leaked magical fluids. The monks fought so bravely, but the Bari pirates escaped with half. Two pieces of Saint Nick. Separated. Make a wish! Purple sails flapping away on the horizon.

We were there when those from Myra came to Venice. Later, they would become a council. They had their half of the holy cadaver moved there. Their petitions to the Phoenicians, for the other half, went rebuffed. Heads or tails?

Entry 2
Albion Ballroom Behind the theater backdrop. Only while on The Christmas Conspiracy mission.
We were there when Giulia Tofana sold her secret poison in Rome. Aqua Tofana, though some called it Manna. She wore a purple mantle in her soul.

We were there when Mozard whispered, "I've been poisoned." Some whispered Masonic plots. The secret societies scratched their heads. The murder was more simple than that. There are those one should not scorn. Hell hath no fury.

Entry 3
The Sunken Library, (281,258) In the hallways of the The Sunken Library. Only during the Krampusnacht event.
We were there when Mozart designed the secret passages beneath Venice. We were there when he wrote the key to open the door. The Magic Flute! We liked Mozart. He could hear us.

We were there in 1943 when the city of Bari was bombed by German ships. Mustard gas! Screams! That is what the histories said, anyway. We know the Illuminati crept in, but failed to steal Santa's half. Something borrowed. Something blue.

Entry 4
The San Nicolo al Lido Catacombs (Instance) Just after you come into the instance
'Tis the season. Wassail! Wassail! Raise a steaming glass and toast the dead saint. Santa's corpse is out there, in two pieces. Cadaverous halves playing havoc on the history of this tiny planet. Entry 5
The San Nicolo al Lido Catacombs (Instance) In the final room
