You come upon the Iele singing to her shrinking wilderness, a song that seems to resonate within the standing stones marking the forest's hidden ways. Perhaps if you learned the song of stones you could follow this pagan trail, and find what it once signified.

Dialogue

Initial Cutscene

  • No dialogue, only singing from the Iele.

Report

Centuries ago an earthquake triggered these same notes inside the Colossi of Memnon. We long followed the melody's trail across Asia Minor, but lost it at the end of the second century.

Now, the twin statues are singing once again. The Silent Ones can hear it in the trees.

A dormant defensive system inside the Earth is being roused to action. At night, the Dragon sways and gestures in ways we have never seen, as though shadowing the motions of a great conductor. The Earth's wondrous logic - simple yet intricate, like the dreams of a child - is within our grasp.

I hope the Iele knows something about international copyright laws. Some of those melodies sound pretty familiar.

Regardless, Simon says good work. Obviously you're not out there to plant trees. What I'm interested in is further discovery and analysis of the world's internal beacon system. Early projections make it out to be some kind of NORAD for flowers.

Fun fact: Reports are coming in that there was a music and light show at the pyramid of El Castillo when you played that final melody. Whatever you've triggered is resounding outside Romania. Sounds like Mother Nature's tuning up for something.

This sounds very much like recent reports about singing stones in Brittany. Quite literally. The melodies are strikingly similar and they seem to be playing off each other. Rather than forming a complete piece, the notes you've triggered appear to represent the first movement of a greater symphony.

How delightful.

We shall continue to explore the mechanics of this global orchestra. Early analysis indicates it functions as a kind of defence system. For all the terror and darkness that is being unearthed, it is easy to forget that the world perhaps holds life-affirming secrets in equal measure.
