Commence with prostration and supplication.

The Glowing Sphere is a Himamanav Deity found down the right path of the Yeti Cave, at the top of a large rock spire guarded by various Yeti.

... You are not of the Himamanav. But you are not of the darkness. Your presence is unexpected.

Nice to meet you too.

Did you come to kill and loot our great people?

No! I come in peace.
Perhaps you could help us. There is a blight in our cavern. Creatures from a place of great evil have arrived. They summon the undead from centuries long-gone. Kill their leader and bring me the head.
And I'll get something good?
I will deign to teach you knowledge. Secrets long-lost to your kind.
Okay, good enough. I'll be back!
Well... I did kind of kill a dozen yetis on the way in...
Fiend! It is the time fortold. The time of interlopers! I will protect my wards. Say your final prayers.
Wait... what kind of prayers? To you? Or to some god? I don't quite...
(You get set on fire and will die).
I'll shatter you like I shattered your defenders!
(You get set on fire and will die).
Stop! This is all a misunderstanding!
How so?
I'm an adventurer! I only murdered those guys because it was adventurous!
I understand. You are a psychopath.
No, you don't get it. I can help you. I seek adventure. Do you have any adventure for me?
... I comprehend. You suggest I manipulate you to achieve goals that will benefit the Himamanav. You imply that the benefits to the many will outweigh the deaths of a few.
Well, that phrasing doesn't make me sound very heroic at all, but yes.
Perhaps you could help us. There is a blight in our cavern. Creatures from a place of great evil have arrived. They summon the undead from centuries long-gone. Kill their leader and bring me the head.
And I'll get something good?
I will deign to teach you knowledge. Secrets long-lost to your kind.
Okay, good enough. I'll be back!

Conversations

Greetings, mortal. I have rescued you.
What do you mean?
A group of pixies played a trip upon you, luring you to this place in order to kill you and feast upon your entrails, as is their worst. I have displaced them to allow you to arrive safely.
I have no idea what you're talking about, but thanks.
Oh, I see. Well, thanks. What did the pixies want?
These pixies are a disadvantaged people and their lives are miserable. Do not think that they mean you harm in particular. They do, but do not think it, for their minds work not as yours does, and you could inadvertently strengthen them and ruin the great efforts I have undertaken.
Um... that sounds insane.
It matters not. I have a request to make of you. It is gravely important.
Well, what's the request?
Nearby you will locate a pixie. She is the most promising of my patients and has permanently recovered some lucidity. All other pixies I have operated on can only recover memories for a short time. So this pixie is precious.
Uriana's progress has stalled recently, sometimes she has difficulty with advanced ethical concepts, and other times she struggles with... much simpler concepts. She needs a gentile friend, someone who will listen to her ideas and entertain her experiments.
You may be asked to do things that you will find mildly unpleasant; while this may be damaging to YOUR psyche, remember that it will undoubtedly help HER psyche. Also, I have given Uriana a large assortment of artifacts and weaponry with which to pay. I have taught her that she should share her toys with her friends, so there is a material benefit to helping her.
Well, I'll go talk to her. What do I say?
So they're strong against psychic damage?
Indeed they are, as I said.
Now, having saved you from an assault of deadly pixies, I wish to ask a favor of you. I recognize that this places a burden upon you. I make no apologies, for the need is great.
Well, what's the favor?
I seek to aid the oppressed, pixies are oppressed by the biology that has been inflicted upon them. My presence needs no no further explanation. Yours, however, does. But let us not be distracted with facts and concepts, for I have need of action. Your action.
So what's in it for you, orb? Why are you doing this?
Remember that I saved you from being attacked by a pack of angry pixies. The likelyhood of your death was nearly certain.
You owe me nothing, of course, but should your guilt force you to act, I will still consider that a success.
