Afterword is the fifth quest and conclusion of The Chalk Prince and the Dragon event.


  1. Look for Albedo
  2. Speak to Albedo


The Traveler returns with the Festering Desire at its peak power. Albedo handles the sword and extracts the purified life force from within the sword into a bottle, and gifts the Traveler the leftover sword as a memento. Albedo then bids them farewell as his research is completed.

After the Traveler leaves, Albedo notes that he resonates with Durin's life force, and mentions his master, Rhinedottir,[1] pondering if the meeting was or was not a good thing.


(Upon reaching Albedo's camp)
Paimon: We're back! It's us again!
Albedo: Traveler, Paimon, welcome back.
Paimon: Paimon's already used to meeting Albedo like that.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I've fulfilled your request.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I've done what you wanted, as promised.
Albedo: Thank you so much. I knew I could count on you.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Count on me to help you?
Albedo: Naturally, you were crucial to my research.
Paimon: Ehehe, glad to hear that~
Albedo: I'll never forget your kindness.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Now you can take the sword back.
Paimon: Should be powerful enough, right?
Albedo: More or less... but tell me... How do you feel?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Same old.
Albedo: Good. There's no side effects, no corruption or poison.
Albedo: Looks like... I've been correct all along.
Paimon: This guy, pretending to be a prophet!
Albedo: How do you like the sword?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg It's a nice weapon.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg It's no good.
Albedo: Is that so? Regardless, it's reached the desired state.
Paimon: Why are you holding the sword? Albedo, what're you trying to do? Don't mess around!
Albedo: I want to extract the purified life force from within it.
Paimon: Can this force exist outside of the sword?
Albedo: What's impossible for some... might be just within my reach.
Albedo: ...All done.
Paimon: Wow, this energy looks like a ball of light...
Paimon: Ah! You put it into a mysterious bottle!
Albedo: This sword might not be a divine weapon...
Albedo: But it'll make a fine memento. I hope it can be of some help during your travels.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Really?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg You don't need it anymore?
Albedo: I needed it for the sake of my research. I've already obtained the results of the experiment. This sword belongs to you, a person who knows how to use it.
Albedo: Thank you for your assistance with completing this research. Well then, goodbye.

Albedo: This dragon's life force resonates with me...
Albedo: Not because it's a dragon, but because I am... me.
Albedo: Rhinedottir... Master... Is this your creation, the giant dragon Durin?
Albedo: ...
Albedo: Was the two of us meeting really a good thing?
