Dialogue[edit]

I was wary of starting a lab at a tengu outpost, but I must admit, they can supply some very unique research materials. Easy access to local test subject has also been beneficial.

Test subjects?
We're here to study the skritt. They're usually dumb, beastly little creatures. But in mass gatherings, they seem to exhibit intelligence far beyond that seen in most races. Other than asura, of course.

So, the skritt get smarter in groups.
A single skritt is borderline functional, but the more you bring together, the more alacrity they exhibit. My theory is that annoying sounds they make are really superaural signals for communication.

So, why is here good for your tests?
Well, there's a sizeable "community" of skritt nearby, so there are plenty of subjects. And the tengu manage to procure some rather rare materials for us to experiment with, so it's a worthwhile location.

The tengu don't mind?
Well, they don't let us stay here for free. We may have promised them we'd try to set up an asura gate to help their efforts. But only if our skritt research goes well, you see?

Why here, of all places? (same as "So, why is here good..." above)
Talk more option tango.png
What are you hoping to learn.
Talk end option tango.png
Wow. Good luck, I guess.

The skritt volunteer for this?
Um, yes. Sure. Mostly. I mean, It's
[sic]
not like we kidnap them and bring them here. We're just working on some devices to…encourage them to arrive and participate. It's all part of our ongoing research.

And this location is good for that? (same as "So, why is here good..." above)
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah, that doesn't sound sketchy at all.
Talk end option tango.png
I see.
Talk more option tango.png
You mean that chirpy buzzing sound?
Yes, yes, that. I hypothesize that it allows them to send and receive information much faster than we can speak and hear, which gives them the illusion of greater intellect. If I can figure out how it works…
Talk more option tango.png
Then, what, you could chirp and buzz?
No, that's be useless. But maybe we could learn how to disrupt them, or we could set our golems up to coordinate with each other better, or something. I'm sure I can find some way to profit from this.
Talk more option tango.png
And the tengu don't mind helping you? (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah, good luck with that.
Talk more option tango.png
And they just let you study them like that? (same as "The skritt volunteer..." above)
Talk end option tango.png
That seems a little far-fetched. I'm out of here.
Talk end option tango.png
That's...interesting. Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
Why come here, though? (same as "So, why is here good..." above)
Talk more option tango.png
The tengu don't mind? (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds like you're covered. Bye.
Talk more option tango.png
And they just let you work here? (same as "The tengu don't mind?" above)
Talk end option tango.png
Yes, yes. Very interesting. Good-bye.
