I always thought this would be a prime position, but it's so very dangerous out here. The Priory never told me it would be like this.
Talk more option tango.png What are you looking for out here?
We're searching for artifacts from the time of Adelbern's kingdom. There were[sic] much valuable knowledge lost that day. With luck, we'll reclaim this lost slice of history.
Talk more option tango.png Adelbern?
Surely, you know about how the old king went mad and turned everybody in Ascalon City into ghosts? It was a black day for all of Tyria.
Talk end option tango.png Now I know. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png Good luck to you.
(If charr)
Talk more option tango.png Poor little human!
Don't be insulting. You're not out here fighting off the ghosts of your ancestors. Besides, truth be told, Adelbern would never had done what he did if your ancestors hadn't been killing everyone in sight.
Talk more option tango.png We were taking back our land!
Your land? I think not. It had been our land for long enough to build the city of Ascalon and for our people to settle the land. As far as I'm concerned, that makes it ours.
Talk more option tango.png And now you're out here scavenging graves? (Same as "What are you looking for..." above)
Talk end option tango.png You're wrong. I'm done talking to you.
Talk end option tango.png Humans. I'm tired of your excuses and tired of this conversation.
(If not charr)
Talk more option tango.png You never should have come here.
You may be right. I never expected that the ghosts of our ancestors would attack us as well. As much as I respect the Priory's work here, I'm going to request a transfer to a different dig.
Talk more option tango.png What are you doing here, besides whining? (Same as "What are you looking for..." above)
Talk more option tango.png The ghosts are mad at everyone, right?
Actually, based on my friend's research, they believe we're charr. They can't see beyond the moment of their death, and so far as they can tell, we're all the invading charr army. It's quite distressing when you think about it. Can you imagine? Living your last day for all of eternity? Over and over?
Talk end option tango.png It is horrifying. Horrifying.
Talk end option tango.png I think you should. Good day.
Talk merchant tango.png Do you have anything to sell?
Talk end option tango.png Good bye.
