Renown Heart empty (map icon).png All I want to do is study their runestones, but this tribe is using them as currency! I would gladly trade with them, but they're terrible at it.
Talk more option tango.png What can I do to help?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Help me trade for jotun runestones. They'll trade the stones for anything they think is valuable. Food, supplies, building materials, and so on.
Talk more option tango.png Any tips?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png It seems they mostly want the things that the other jotun have. But they're so poor at negotiating that they won't trade directly with each other anymore.
Talk more option tango.png So...?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png You could act as a middle man. Buy supplies from one, and see if you can get more from another.
Talk end option tango.png Good idea
Talk end option tango.png Ah, I see.
Talk more option tango.png Why do you want these runestones?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png There are many ancient jotun texts that we can't decipher because their race has forgotten how to read their own language. The inscriptions on these runestones show a lot of promise.'
Talk end option tango.png I see. That makes sense.
Talk end option tango.png I'll do that.
Talk more option tango.png These jotuns are ... friendly?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png They're desperate. The tribe is having trouble with these winter storms. They've taken to trading with merchants visiting Twinspur Haven to survive.
Talk end option tango.png I see.
Talk give option tango.png I've got some runestones here.
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Are you sure you want to give them all to me right now? You can use them to make more trades.
Talk give option tango.png Yes, just take them all, please.
Talk give option tango.png Take ten.
Talk give option tango.png Take five.
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Thank you very much. This will help me quite a bit.
Talk end option tango.png Sure, no problem.
Talk end option tango.png On second thought, I'll hold onto them for a bit.
Talk end option tango.png Good-bye.
This dialogue branch is only available once players have collected a good amount of runestones.
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Oh my, you have so many runestones. Many more than I could have imagined. This will surely be enough for me.
Talk give option tango.png Please, take them.
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Thank you very much. This will help me quite a bit.
Talk end option tango.png Sure, no problem.
Talk end option tango.png I'm going to hang onto them.
Complete heart (map icon).png You were a big help. Here, have a look at some of the things that I've gained from trading with the jotun.
Karma.png Let's see what you have.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe later.


Knowledge is power.
I do most of my research at the pub.
Knowledge is the greatest treasure.
Any interesting news?
