Ambient dialogue[edit]

Outside and within the Consortium Headquarters
Administration Assistant (asura): Have you ever actually seen the founder around headquarters?
Administration Assistant (human): As far as I know, no one's seen him anywhere in years.
Administration Assistant (human): The subdirector says she's been assured by Chairman Macro that Boll's still calling the shots.
Administration Assistant (asura): (snort) I wouldn't be surprised if Ol' Chairman Overkill ate the guy himself.
Administration Assistant (human): Oh! You're awful. (giggle)
Administration Assistant (human): Did you hear? The directors are talking about expanding.
Administration Assistant (asura): No! Where'd you hear that? We're barely staffed up here yet.
Administration Assistant (human): Keep it quiet, but the subdirector has me doing a feasibility study on a possible site.
Administration Assistant (human): I can't say where it is, but she claims this large parcel of land might just make itself available very soon.
Intern: Seems like I should have been hired on by now. If that was going to happen.
Intern (1): They're spraying our building for karka hatchlings tomorrow.
Intern (2): Really? I missed that memo. Maybe it will actually work, this time.
Intern (1): Here's hoping. But, hey! Day off, at least.
Intern (2): Wait—you get paid time off?
Intern (1): No.
Intern (1): I held open a door for the chairman yesterday, and I think he might have noticed me.
Intern (2): (snort) Not sure that's a good thing. You're lucky he didn't take a bite out of you.
Intern (1): Speaking of, have you eaten this week?
Intern (2): Not really, no.
Intern (1): (sigh) Me either.
Junior Brand Manager: I'm just not convinced our perceived brand identity reflects the consumer's actual perception of our brand.
Junior Brand Manager: You see what I mean, don't you? The metrics just need to be unskewed to account for bias.
Personal Assistant: Sure, of course. That's just common sense.
Junior Brand Manager: Exactly. I know what I'm talking about. I've been at this for months already.
In and around the Order of Whispers Headquarters
Lionguard (1) Looters. That's eight this week.
Lionguard (2) They're getting bolder.
Lionguard (1) Of course they are. We barely have enough Lionguard to watch the city for one shift.
Local (1): So there I was, covered in aether good, and this merchant had the nerve to ask if I'd guard his yak.
Local (2): What'd you do?
Local (1): Slapped it on the rump nd sent it running to the gate. You shoulda seen the look on the guy's face as he ran after it.
Local (2): (laugh) You big softy.
Local (1): You know that friend I was telling you about?
Local (2): The one who infiltrated that one organization?
Local (1): Yeah. That's the one. He found out about you know what.
Local (2): Did he...talk to...you know who?
Local (1): Yeah. Talked her right into the ground.
Local (1): That's nothing. Remember that one place...last week?
Local (2): How could I forget? I nearly lost my "stuff."
Local (1): Exactly. Well, it's under new management, if you know what I mean.
Local (2): No kidding? Was it because of the...um...miscommunication we had?
Local (1): Most definitely. (laugh)
Local (2): I'm leaving tomorrow, you know?
Local (1): Already? It's that critical that you...visit your grandmother?
Local (2): She's about to blow a gasket. Somebody needs to bring her down a notch.
Local (1): I bet she knows a lot of...family history. You should ask before she kicks the bucket.
Local (2): Oh, I plan to grill her, all right. We need that "recipe."
Ogden Stonehealer: You've led an interesting life, my mechanical friend. And you show an intriguing degree of independent thought.
Hero-Tron: My—personality—matrix—was—based—on—the—engrams—of—Subdirector—Noll, a—flawed—genius. More—flaw—than—genius, actually.
Hero-Tron: Trauma—and—experience—caused—my—cerebral—systems—to—develop—stochastically—into—new—and—unusual—configurations.
Hero-Tron: As—such, I—have—acquired—a—series—of—eclectic—skills. Would—you—like—to—hear"The—Ballad—of—the—Hobo—Bindle?"
Ogden Stonehealer: No thank you. But I know some scholars who would love to interview you.
Hero-Tron: I—will—make—myself—available...my—duties—as—an—official—representative—of—Lion's—Arch—permitting.
Outside Captain Kiel's Office
Marcello DiGiacomo: Do you mind? I'm trying to brighten the day of the citizenry.
Hero-Tron: I—was—unaware—your—business—here—was—also—officially—sanctioned.
Hero-Tron: Perhaps—my—close personal—friend, Captain—Magnus, can—clear—this—matter—up.
Marcello DiGiacomo: I, ah- Let's not do anything rash, now.
Marcello DiGiacomo: Say, friend. We've been through a lot together, haven't we?
Hero-Tron: Affirmative. Though—mutual—experiences—have—been—unpleasant.
Marcello DiGiacomo: Yes well I was just wondering if you might know of any availabilities for entertainers such as myself?
Hero-Tron: Searching...Searching...Searching. Position—not—found
Marcello DiGiacomo: I see. Well who needs you anyway? I earn my own keep.
Marcello DiGiacomo: (moan)
Hero-Tron: I—can—help—you—get—work—today. Ask—me—how.
Hero-Tron: Many—openings—currently—available—for—the—qualified—applicant.
Hero-Tron: Heroic—golem—recruiting—talent-across—multiple—positions.
Hero-Tron: Lion's Arch—wins—when—you—join—our—cause.
Hero-Tron: Your—future—in—Lion's Arch—can—begin—today.
Marcello DiGiacomo: Who would want to be tied down to some dead-end job?
Marcello DiGiacomo: At least some of us haven't sold out yet.
Marcello DiGiacomo: Remember, folks, I rely on your generous donations to stay independent.
Marcello DiGiacomo: Any requests for a self-made entrepreneur?
Marcello DiGiacomo: My only license is my boundless creativity.
Marcello DiGiacomo: I consider myself a free voice for these people.
Cub: I am super useless. Beep.
Kid: (giggle)
Cub: No—really—I—am—a—hero.
Kid: (giggle)
Kid: (rude noise)
Cub: (laugh)
Kid: Bla—bla—bla—blah.
Cub: (giggle)
Kid: Beep—beep. Who—wants—to—peel—potatoes?
Cub: (snicker)
Cub: ♪Spare change, anyone?♪
Kid: (giggle)

After Path of Fire launch[edit]

Citizen (1): I've been a devout follower of Balthazar all my life. I refuse to believe he's indiscriminately killing people.
Citizen (1): He's the god of fire and war. He's got the backbone to do what's necessary.
Citizen (2): You sound like a Zaishen fanatic.
Refugee (1): The Branded started moving, then Balthazar showed up with his army. That's two hostile forces right on Joko's doorstep.
Refugee (1): Why won't Joko respond?
Refugee (2): He doesn't think like we do. He's undead, and immortal. Insane.
Refugee (2): He probably let all those people die so he'd have a fresh batch of corpses for his army.
Citizen (3): We're talking about the god of fire and war. Do I need to spell it out? War creates misery. Period.
Citizen (4): What about Grenth? He's the god of death, and death creates all kinds of misery.
Citizen (3): Death is inevitable. War isn't
Citizen (4): Maybe not. But sometimes it's necessary.

Notes[edit]

  • The minimap displays "Canal Ward" when moused over while in the vicinity of Commodore's Quarter.
  • Sometimes Marcello DiGiacomo's will take out his instrument and start playing and singing. The audio from this often overlap with his ambient dialogue.

Trivia[edit]

  • The name, "Commodore's Quarter", was selected through a poll by players between 19th and 23rd of May, 2015. Other options were "City Central" and "King Doric's Court".
