    I didn't get all the text from Dawn's Graveside, I was out of range to hear the first part.

    Sherry the Mouse: *looks about*
    Sherry the Mouse: *frowns sadly*
    Sherry the Mouse: *sighs*
    Sherry the Mouse: Thank you all for coming
    Sherry the Mouse: I ask for your forgiveness
    Sherry the Mouse: That you may look past any difficulties I may have today.
    Sherry the Mouse: I am but a mere mouse...tasked with eulogizing a great Queen and warrior
    Sherry the Mouse: It is my great honor that such is asked of me
    Sherry the Mouse: *twitches*
    Sherry the Mouse: One that is surpassed only by the honor....
    Sherry the Mouse: Of being able to call her my friend.
    Sherry the Mouse: Today we gather to pay our respects and say our farewells
    Sherry the Mouse: To Dawn the Valiant, Queen of Britannia
    Sherry the Mouse: It is only fitting that we do so here, in her home of Yew.
    Sherry the Mouse: It is a well told story of how she rose from humble beginnings
    Sherry the Mouse: By taking up a sword in defense of this very land
    Sherry the Mouse: And meeting a threat surpassed perhaps only by that which we face today
    Sherry the Mouse: *pauses*
    Sherry the Mouse: Greatness was in our Queen long before she held title or office.
    Sherry the Mouse: She inherited her skill with a blade and a reverence for the Virtues
    Sherry the Mouse: From her grandfather, a Knight, and continued the family legacy
    Sherry the Mouse: *frowns slightly*
    Sherry the Mouse: Though such things are beyond the understanding of a mouse
    Sherry the Mouse: I can say that her...
    Sherry the Mouse: *twitches*
    Sherry the Mouse: Her death....honored this legacy
    Sherry the Mouse: Generations will speak of the life of our Queen
    Sherry the Mouse: As well as the day she perished in defense of the kingdom
    Sherry the Mouse: With this in mind, let us not forget that many lives were sacrificed on that day
    Sherry the Mouse: And that more will likely be needed as we meet the challenge before us
    Sherry the Mouse: As a result of that dark hour, the Queen's own husband, Ors
    Sherry the Mouse: Made the decision to depart and be with his dear wife.
    Sherry the Mouse: As we...as we remember the others who have fallen in our defense
    Sherry the Mouse: Let us remember him as well
    Sherry the Mouse: Not as a traitor, but as the Queen's beloved
    Sherry the Mouse: *pauses*
    Sherry the Mouse: *sniffles*
    Sherry the Mouse: Pardon...
    Sherry the Mouse: Courageous warrior, loving wife, respected leader...
    Sherry the Mouse: And friend to all Britannians great and small.
    Sherry the Mouse: This is how I shall remember my Queen
    Sherry the Mouse: *glances back*
    Sherry the Mouse: As she walks in eternal Light
    Sherry the Mouse: I will honor her by walking along the same virtuous path in life
    Sherry the Mouse: For Dawn lived as she died
    Sherry the Mouse: With Truth in mind
    Sherry the Mouse: Courage at hand
    Sherry the Mouse: and Love in her heart.
    Sherry the Mouse: *looks back*
    Sherry the Mouse: You will be missed, my Queen
    Sherry the Mouse: We have here today
    Sherry the Mouse: Amongst the many mourners
    Sherry the Mouse: Two who can speak better than most about the Virtues of Dawn

    Virtuebane: What fitting scenery, perhaps we can hold a few more funerals! *Looks to Ricardo*

    Sherry the Mouse: And I shall turn it over to their hands
    Sherry the Mouse: *gasps*

    Virtuebane: Kal Vas Flam - Flame Strike

    Sherry the Mouse: You!
    Sherry the Mouse: *bares teeth*

    Avery: I'm going to seek one of them out shortly.

    Sherry the Mouse: Does this....
    Sherry the Mouse: Does this mean you will be staying for awhile...?

    Avery: He will tell me, or I'll force the information from him.
    Avery: *sighs*
    Avery: Knowledge can often be more dangerous than any weapon.
    Avery: *nods*
    Avery: I can say for sure that you've all fought valiently today.
    Avery: Dawn would certainly be proud.

    Sherry the Mouse: *sniffles*

    Avery: Too many deaths of late, it is hard for me to handle..

    Sherry the Mouse: *begins sobbing*

    Avery: We've protected our land, if nothing else. I can hold pride in that.
    Avery: I am afraid not..we've failed in some senses.
    Avery: But Ricardo is not one of them.
    Avery: I'm going to council with a few who know more about the crystal than I.
    Avery: I think for now all the rest of you can do is keep a vigilant eye for Virtuebane, or Ricardo.

    Aneirin: Thief can handle himself, if he ain't dead.

    Avery: *nods*
    Avery: He's proven it many times before.
    Avery: Please continue to pay your respects if you wish.

    Sherry the Mouse: *sniffs*
    Sherry the Mouse: I think...

    Avery: *touches the stone one last time*

    Sherry the Mouse: I think I'm ready to return to the castle

    Avery: Even Ors has my respect.

    Sherry the Mouse: It just won't ever be the same...

    Avery: A tragedy none should have to bare.

    Avery: Ors was the Queen's husband.

    Sherry the Mouse: *takes one last look at the stone*

    Avery: I can't hold him responsible for her death.

    Sherry the Mouse: Yes?

    Hunterboon: is virtuebane coming back soon?

    Sherry the Mouse: I hope not

    Avery: He has gotten what he came for.

    Sherry the Mouse: But we are not done with him yet

    Avery: I doubt we will see his face until I find where it may be

    Sherry the Mouse: I believe tonight is a night for mourning

    Aneirin: Nor "he", us.

    Sherry the Mouse: There has been enough death

    Avery: We are close to Empath Abbey, you are all welcome tovisit.

    Avery: This is where I depart for now--I will share my findings with you all as soon as I can.

    Avery: Goodbye, my Queen.

    Aneirin: Best of luck

    Sherry the Mouse: Thank you, Avery

    Avery: Thank you all for your service today.

    Sherry the Mouse: I shall depart as well
    Sherry the Mouse: Good bye....my Queen
    Sherry the Mouse: my friend...
