The Scene of the Crime[edit]

Speaking to Inspector Kiel outside the instance
Entry to the stage is currently restricted.
Talk quest option tango.png
Marjory Delaqua will vouch for me.
When approaching the crime scene
Marjory Delaqua: You look like you're in charge here.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: You're smarter than you look.
Marjory Delaqua: Hmph. So my mama always said. But I'm not here for witty banter, satisfying as that might be.
Marjory Delaqua: I'm a private investigator from Divinity's Reach, and I want to offer you my services.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: What could you possibly offer that the Lionguard doesn't already have covered?
Marjory Delaqua: (laugh) That's a loaded question. Let me tell you about my Tassi box. I bought it off a snotty little asura.
Marjory Delaqua: It can detect all manner of energy fluctuations. May I demonstrate?
Investigator Ellen Kiel: Now, you've got me curious. Of course, curiosity killed the cat. But go on. Show me.
Marjory Delaqua: Just press those buttons, and see what glows.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: What does that glow mean?
Marjory Delaqua: It means the dead charr recently came in contact with the arcane residue, and not while his life was passing before his eyes.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: No kidding.
Marjory Delaqua: Not even if you ask nicely.
Talking to Investigator Ellen Kiel
We've discovered that the energy discharge was definitely triggered on purpose, with evil intent.
Talk more option tango.png
Now what?
I've had everyone who was present questioned. Most were clearly innocent, so we sent them home. Those still here are suspects.
Talk end option tango.png
We've got our work cut out for us.
Talk end option tango.png
Interesting. Talk to you later.
Talking to Marjory
My instincts haven't failed me yet. Bringing the Tassi boxes was exactly the right thing to do. Will you help me?
Talk more option tango.png
What do you need me to do?
Take one of the Tassi boxes and test people. I've already tested you, so you've been cleared.
Talk more option tango.png
I'll take a Tassi box.
Just point and click. The box is designed to reveal auras, and I've programmed it to highlight residual energy. It's crudely programmed at the moment, but I can fine-tune the settings as we learn more.
Talk end option tango.png
Got it. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
Not right now. I'm busy.
Talk end option tango.png
Not right now.
Talking to Mai Trin
I don't understand what's happening. Can you find out for me?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll learn what I can.
Talking to Farley Wallan (also appears after testing)
Are you in charge here? I've been telling the Lionguard I had nothing to so with what happened. All this hassle...shoulda never left Ebonhawke.
Talk more option tango.png
Who are you?
For the millionth time, I am Farley Wallin
[sic]
, appointed by both Commander Samuelsson and Queen Jennah to be the human cultural ambassador for Dragon Bash.
Talk more option tango.png
What did you see?
Before the blast, I noticed the charr was acting fidgety. Then I noticed some of the other representatives also looked nervous.
Talk more option tango.png
Which ones?
The ogre, that quaggan, the sylvari, and a skritt. I thought it was stage-fright or something.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
Interesting.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talking to Saraki (also appears after testing)
Have you come to ask questions? Or have you come to gawk at a survivor? Hmpf. Disgusting. Show some respect for the dead and wounded.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talking to Izurri (also appears after testing)
I have all my papers–my identity cog, the Arcane Council proclamation, and the contribution manifest. Anything you wish to inquire about, ask. Please. I'm innocent.
Talk more option tango.png
Who are you?
Izurri, Honors graduate of the College of Dynamics, from Rata Sum. Chosen by the Arcane Council to be the asuran component of the Dragon Bash presentation and ritual.
Talk more option tango.png
What did you see?
*sigh* Oh, that terrible sight. As the other representatives put their items into the effigy, I noticed a strange reaction taking place inside it.
Talk more option tango.png
Strange how?
There was a certain arcane chromatic discharge, as if a cascading escalation were taking place. Certainly not supposed to happen.
Talk end option tango.png
That's enough for now.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll make a note of that.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll be going.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talking to Kirra Timberhone (also appears after testing)
Questions, questions, questions. Too many questions. Proper hunters would have caught their prey by now.
Talk more option tango.png
Who are you?
Kirra Timberhone, descendant of Ginna Woodsplitter and norn cultural representative for Dragon Bash.
Talk more option tango.png
What did you see at the effigy event?
There were too many people moving around, too many noises, too many distractions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
That's enough.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Testing Mai Trin
Mai Trin: I beg your pardon.
Marjory Delaqua: Don't fret. You'll come to no harm-unless you had a hand in what happened. Um. She's glowing.
Marjory Delaqua: All right, lady. You better start talkin'.
Mai Trin: What? I... swear. I had nothing to do with that tragedy. I'm an upstanding citizen.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: Wait. Could she have gotten it from the dead charr that glowed? She attempted to revive him.
Mai Trin: Yes, yes. That must be it. I was only trying to help.
Marjory Delaqua: Oh, disappointment. Well, you're one lucky little pirate, you are. Consider yourself exonerated.
Talking to Mai Trin after testing her
I think I'll stick around, in case anyone needs me.
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck. See you around.
After testing the last person
Lionguard: Excuse the interruption, Investigator Kiel, but I have news. Five of the cultural representatives failed to report in.
Investigator Ellen Kiel: We'd better track them down. Ms. Delaqua, I'll contact you and your associates when we have something to investigate. Thanks for everything.
Talking to Investigator Ellen Kiel
We know that the charr representative was probably involved, but I wonder if he had accomplices.
Talk more option tango.png
It doesn't seem like a one-assassin job.
Agreed. We're still missing five of the cultural representatives who were here at the time. They ran off before we could stop them.
Talk more option tango.png
How can I help?
Get some rest. Enjoy Dragon Bash. I'll be in touch as soon as we have a lead on the missing representatives.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll watch for your missive.
Talk end option tango.png
I see you have your hands full.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll keep my eyes open.

Followup Mail[edit]

Search for the Suspects[edit]

Speaking to Inspector Kiel before finishing the search
The clues are adding up. If we had all the evidence from the extra cultural representatives, we'd solve this mystery.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me again where to look.
We found Vorrk's footprints leaving the crime scene, and Morraloo has been spotted in Bloodtide Coast in the Sorrowful Sound. Kasparak lives in Gendarren
[sic]
Fields near Almuten Estates. Good luck.
Talk more option tango.png
And the other two?
Our kodan suspect, Trembling Song, was spotted in Snowden Drifts at the Lost Child's Sorrow camp, and Astorra, the sylvari, is believed to be in Caledon Forest, in the Rowanwoods. Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm on it.
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck.

Vorrk[edit]

Examining Vorrk's corpse (marked as Ogre Slugger)
Upon closer inspection, this corpse matches the description of the missing Dragon Bash ogre representative.
Talk more option tango.png
Search the area for clues with the Tassi box.
The Tassi box detects anomalous arcane materials on the corpse.
Talk quest option tango.png
Log materials as evidence.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave.
Examining Vorrk's corpse normally
Upon closer inspection, this corpse matches the description of the missing Dragon Bash ogre representative.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave.

Kasparak[edit]

Meeting with Kasparak
You aren't shiny. You smell like sea. Good smell. Shiny man gave me shiny for big party. Said they give other skritt a long vacation. That was nice.
Talk more option tango.png
You need to return to Lion's Arch for questioning.
NO! Big noise! Screams. Very scary. Didn't know what to do. Felt guilty. Will stay out here. Safe, yes.
Charisma
You sure? There are lots of shiny things back in Lion's Arch.
Really? Okay. Back to Lion's Arch we go. Toodle-doo.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll meet you there.
Dignity
You'll be fine. You're innocent, right?
What? Yes. Innocent as innocent. Okay. Back to Lion's Arch. Okay.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll meet you there.
Ferocity
The shiny men say you did it. You were fooled by them. And they'll kill you too.
Fooled? No, not fooled. Won't be fooled. I'll go back. Scared. Must be brave. Didn't do it. Right? Have to find out.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll see you back at Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
Then stay. I've got better things to do.
Talking to Kasparak normally
Um, can't see me. Yeah. Invisible. Just wind, nothing else. Bye.
Talk end option tango.png
If you say so.
Kasparak's idle chatter
Kasparak: Shinies. Out there. Miss them. Oh, shinies. Bad men will skin me if I find them. Can't leave, never leave. (sigh)

Morraloo[edit]

Meeting with Morraloo
Please, don't hurt quaggan or quaggan's tadpoles. Quaggan just did what quaggan was told. They threatened quaggan's nursery. Said quaggan's tads would be fed to krait! Quaggan had to carry their offering to the effigy.
Talk more option tango.png
You must return to Lion's Arch for questioning.
The pastkeeper heard about quaggan's kelp gathering record, and thought quaggan was a hero. Quaggan was named the representative. The Dragon Bash was the worse day of quaggan's life.
Charisma
It takes courage to defend tadpoles like that. You can do this.
Quaggan thinks you're exaggerating, but quaggan understands and will come to Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll meet you there.
Dignity
If we let evil rule us, we all lose.
You are right. Quaggan is wrong. Okay. Quaggan will come to Lion's Arch to testify.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll meet you there.
Ferocity
Your tadpoles will be ashamed of you if you don't do what's right.
Ah. You are right. Quaggan will come to Lion's Arch, if only to set a good example for the tadpoles.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll see you in Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't have time to convince you.
Talking to Morraloo normally
Nooo. Just go. Quaggan doesn't want any trouble.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll go then.
Morraloo's idle chatter
Morraloo: Yes. Quaggan stands strong. Quaggan will not let them win.
Morraloo: OoooOOOOoo. Trouble is coming. Quaggan can feel it.

Astorra[edit]

Meeting with Astorra
You're not here to kill me, that's obvious. And you're not a Lionguard. You found me all the way out here, so you're good at what you do. Tell me, who are you?
Talk more option tango.png
I need you to come to Lion's Arch for questioning.
I didn't kill anyone, and I'm not setting one manicured toe back in the city without a good reason. I was set up.
Talk more option tango.png
What are you talking about?
They made me a deal: be on the stage or face the police. I used my wiles to get the representative spot, and my partners gave me a trinket to burn in the effigy. So, they'll toss me in jail.
Charisma
You know, the Lionguard are pushovers. Just work the "helpless victim" act. You'll fool them all.
Hmm. A few tears, a quaver in my voice. "Oh, have mercy. I'm just a lost, lonely soul." All right, you've convinced me. I'll come back to Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll see you in Lion's Arch.
Dignity
Lion's Arch needs you. Stand up for justice and return to give your testimony.
*laugh* By the Mother, you're serious. Doing the right thing will leave you alone, poor, and dead. But all right, I'll come back.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll see you in Lion's Arch.
Ferocity
You will go back to Lion's Arch and talk if I have to take you back in pieces.
Try and kill me. Others have tried and failed. Though, I like your determination. All right, I'll turn myself in.
Talk end option tango.png
Wise decision. I'll see you there.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds like you got played the fool.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay, good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Someone just passing through.
Talking to Astorra normally
I'm not taking callers right now. Go away.
Talk end option tango.png
Consider me gone.
Astorra's idle chatter
Astorra: Tell your employers they'll never get their precious riches back.
Astorra: I know you're there. Come on, finish the job. If you can.
Astorra: Are you here to kill me, too? Try it, I dare you.

Trembling Song[edit]

Meeting with Trembling Song
Are you Koda's judgement, come at last? I'm ready to surrender my blood and spirit to you.
Talk more option tango.png
You need to come to Lion's Arch for questioning.
My shame is my shadow. I caused a death, by breaking a vow. Now I must give up my own life to pay for it, either by my own hand or by Koda's will.
Charisma
Return to Lion's Arch and be judged by those who were injured.
I suppose I owe them that, at least. Very well. I will.
Talk end option tango.png
Good. I'll see you there.
Dignity
Let me be your judge. Tell me your tale.
I was chosen by my brethren to take the long walk from Frostgorge Sound to Lion's Arch to be part of the ceremony.
Talk more option tango.png
What wrong about that?
I passed a camp where friendly folk beckoned me to warm myself by their campfire. I should have not given in to temptation.
Talk more option tango.png
Go on.
While I slept by the fire, they must have tampered with my race's offering for the effigy burning. If I hadn't stopped, I would have had no part in the death and destruction.
Talk more option tango.png
I believe you. Come plead your case.
It would seem that Koda has sent you. I hear your words, and I abide
[sic]
them. I will see you in Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
Safe travels.
Talk end option tango.png
I inderstand.
Talk end option tango.png
I see where this is going.
Talk end option tango.png
I changed my mind. I'm not interested.
Ferocity
You plan to take the coward's way out?
Ah, perhaps you are right. I should face my accusers. Koda will decide my fate, not me. I'll come to Lion's Arch.
Talk end option tango.png
Forget it.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm not that person.
Talking to Trembling Song normally
You are merely the thunder, and I am waiting for the lightning. Move on.
Talk end option tango.png
Uh...sure.
Trembling Song's idle chatter
Trembling Song: Koda, help me. Koda, give me a path to redeem myself for my cowardice. Give me sight, Koda.
Trembling Song: Death. I have caused death. Koda, here is my body. Manifest my darkness and let it claim me. Destroy me, blood and bone.
Trembling Song: Koda, your justice surrounds me. Pierce me and allow me to pay this debt.
