Well met, good chap!
I was on my way to study the local murlocs when I stumbled upon these most peculiar ruins. Those pirates over yonder arrived first, and it appears they've unleashed some ancient evil.
I would be remiss to let such an evil run rampant, but we should learn more of it before we proceed, lest we end up like those chaps.
I spied the crew bringing back some tablets from the ruins. If you can bring them to me, I may be able to decipher the nature of this evil.
