- Merrick's account
When speaking with Merrick, an inhabitant of Gran Soren, he tells of this place being situated on the mainland that holds many books. He states "It's the finest collection of letters in all the lands".
During conversation he tells of his journey towards the mainland and of his arrival back in Gransys where he mentions that "the people are cowering in the shadow of the wyrm". This means that he must have undertaken his journey afore the player encounters Grigori in Cassardis and become the Arisen.
