The Spirit from the Steppe is a quest item in the Hearts of Stone expansion.
After entering The Painted World, this is found at the gazebo scene and is needed to watch the memory.
- Might man yet learn his neck to bend?
Ha! Behold how that noble race,
Doth year by year its birthright rend,
Its promised lands fast lay to waste.
- Hearts grown cold, brothers brothers spurn,
The rich grow fat, while poor grow thin.
Some hoard bread, others can but yearn,
Then rise, en masse, to slay their kin!
- Taste ye now my missive's fruits,
Feed on them, o heartless brutes!
This world you've bit with cruel-tipped fangs
Your dark crime's venom now through it seeps.
Above, gods' wrath in wild clouds hangs
A cleansing storm soon to unleash!
- Man – A Riddle Stuck in Sleep
- A grub, enwrapped in spittle,
Beneath the tumult of raging skies,
Waits and grows, little by little,
Till – at last! – a bright ray it spies,
Spreads new wings, and away it flies!
- May this thought with man endure!
May we ever in heart recall
This merry creature, winged and pure,
And how it started, so strange, so small!
Whoever seeks from flesh a cure,
To skies above doth plead and call,
May in this soul our tale hope stir!
