The hero and mentor look at a colorful glowing orb.

Mentor: The orb says you must bring it to the planet Hyphex.

Hero: Why?

Mentor: It can’t tell you that. But it does say to “keep faith during dark phases.”

The mentor puts their hand on the hero’s shoulder.

Hero: If it can say that, why can’t it just tell me why I need to go there?

Mentor: It can only show you the path – you have to walk it.

On Hyphex, an alien embraces the glowing orb while the hero stands nearby.

Alien: Orbie! So nice of you to visit. Is this your courier? Should I pay him?

Orb: I’ll just tell him he’s gained experience points.
