Dialogue[edit]

For asura
(If completed Short Fuse story)
Greetings, Savant! How did the throwdown go? From that beaming smile, I'd say it went well. What can I do for you today?
(If not completed Short Fuse story)
Greetings, budding genius! This archive is a repository for all ownership and patent information, from the transcendent to the trivial. What can I do for you?

I'd like to browse your archive.
Ha! You must be new to this. There is no "browse." I am the single point of entry, the gatekeeper, your one-stop source of all things archival. You ask, I answer.
Talk more option tango.png
So I can ask you about anything? (same as below)
Talk more option tango.png
I'm here to do research on Snaff. (same as below)
Talk end option tango.png
Right. Thanks.
Talk more option tango.png
So I can ask you about anything?
Anything and everything having to do with invention ownership. I just need clear search parameters and the genius behind the invention you seek.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd rather browse around and do my own research. (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png
I'm here to do research on Snaff. (same as below)
Talk end option tango.png
I'd start working on those parameters. See you later.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm here to do research on Snaff.
Ah, living up to the title "Snaff Savant," are we? Excellent. I see that Zojja added your name to the approved list. What can I help you with?
Talk more option tango.png
I'm interested in Snaff's core philosophy.
Several document requests disguised as one! Nice. I can summarize: Snaff was a pioneer in the field of mind/golem interface. All his greatest inventions pushed that envelope.
Talk more option tango.png
Be more specific.
He believe a strong mind could make a strong golem even more effective. Before him, it was all joysticks and directional pads. Now piloting is as easy as thinking.
Talk back option tango.png
Interesting. I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. That's all for now.
Talk back option tango.png
I have another Snaff-related question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm done for now.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me about the golem named Sandy.
Ah, Sandy. One of Snaff's finest. It was a golem of sandstone and pulverized power crystals, operated by Snaff's trademark mind/golem interface.
Talk more option tango.png
Fascinating. Tell me more.
Sandy's body was malleable and responded to the pilot's commands. It could reform and repair itself...in a very real sense, its form was limited only by the user's imagination.

I have another Snaff-related question.
Talk end option tango.png
That's all I need for now.
Talk back option tango.png
I have another Snaff-related question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm done for now. Thanks!
Talk more option tango.png
How did Snaff die?
Oh. Well, er...that file has been almost completely redacted by Zojja. Access denied to all but her. But to answer your question as best I can: tragically.
Talk back option tango.png
I have another Snaff-related question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm done for now. Thanks!
Talk back option tango.png
I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
Actually, I need to go now. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
Nothing for me today, thanks!
For non-asura
Welcome to the archives. I'm sorry, but these facilities are exclusively for the citizens of Rata Sum.
If in the Vigil
Talk more option tango.png
I'm with the Vigil. I need access. Now.
If in Order of Whispers
Talk more option tango.png
I'm an exception. Am I talking too loud, or should I...whisper?
If in Durmand Priory
Talk more option tango.png
I'm with the Priory, so I have special access. (Same as I'm with the Vigil. I need access. Now.)
Ah, I see. We do have an arrangement with certain VIPs from certain organizations. Very well. What can I do for you?
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to browse your archive. (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png
So I can ask you about anything? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png
I'm here to do research on Snaff. (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png
Nothing right now. But I may be back.
Talk end option tango.png
All right. Thanks anyway.

Notes[edit]

He calls non-asura savants as well: this is due to the dialogue reusing the asura-specific lines.
