Dialogue[edit]

Dredge raiders are making this difficult to hold, but our research is too important to leave behind.

How can I help?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
You can find dwarven headstones, and decipher their runes. But be careful, the headstones are protected by powerful magic to ward off graverobbers.

Dwarven headstones?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
There are many dwarf graves near the citadel. Each headstone has three lines, and only the line that relates to the buried dwarf is safe to read.

What about the dredge?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
In order to conduct our research, we need to hold the citadel and keep dredge out.

I can do that.
Talk end option tango.png
Not really my thing. See you.

Why's this research so important?
Incomplete heart (map icon).png
We're trying to discover how the dwarves defeated the dredge, so we can subdue the dredge and gain access to the relics in their mountains.
Talk end option tango.png
I see. Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png
Hand in there.
Complete heart (map icon).png
With your help deciphering runes, we made remarkable breakthroughs today. If there's anything you need, don't hesitate to ask.
