Ambient dialogue[edit]

Alfi: My sire says that if I train hard at the fahrar, then some day, I'll be an imperator.
Pica: Not me. I want to make weapons. I'm going to build the biggest gun ever, and it'll kill all the dragons.
Alfi: That's mighty. I bet you can't catch me.
Adult: Hey! You cubs slow down!
Adult threatens the cubs who slow down.
Alfi: I'd have got here sooner, but my mother birthed me on the front lines across the mountains in the north.
Pica: I was born in the Brand. They had to wait six months after I was weaned before they could even get me out of there.
Alfi: My sire insisted I be taken to the citadel fahrar.
Pica: Mine too. I hear it's the best one in the world.
Pica: Maybe we can be in the same warband?
Alfi: That'd be mighty. I'm going to call my warband the Kaboom warband.
Blood Legionnaire: I smell disgrace. Why don't you fall on your sword, gladium, and do the world a favor?
Gladium Purd Coalwalker: Bite your tongue, or I'll rip it out.
Blood Legionnaire: (growl!) I'll put this stray down myself!
Blood Legion Soldier: Eyes on your own business.
Braai Doomfiend: What's your business here?
Gladium Purd Coalwalker: Legionnaire, I am gladium. I offer arm and life to your service while I remain in your camp. Please accept my pledge.
Braai Doomfiend: Your presence stirs my warriors. Keep to yourself, and don't feed tempers. I'll kill you myself if there's trouble.
Braai Doomfiend: We have a gladium in the den. Find him, and follow him. Report any trouble.
Ash Legion Soldier: On my word.
Ash Legion Soldier (1): Didn't you come from the citadel? What's the news?
Ash Legion Soldier (2): Yeah. Most interesting gossip is that a soldier defeated Barradin's ghost. No small feat.
Ash Legion Soldier: Hunting dumb beasts is okay. Hunting Flame Legion scum is better.
Blood Legionnaire (1): I'd rather meet those traitors on the battlefield.
Blood Legionnaire (2): As if they would ever face us in open combat.
Blood Legion Soldier (1): They say the rest of his warband was killed fighting rebels from Ebonhawke.
Blood Legion Soldier (2): Why isn't he dead, too?
Blood Legion Soldier (1): Good question.
Blood Legion Soldier (1): It was a dark and stormy night. Ghosts rose from their graves and menaced humans.
Blood Legion Soldier (2): Lemme guess. The humans ran like rats and hid until dawn.
Blood Legion Soldier (1): It gets better.
Blood Legion Soldier (2): What's the ending?
Blood Legion Soldier (1): It's bloody and terrible! You see, charr show up and shred the ghosts. (laughter)
Blood Legion Soldier (2): (laughter) Yeah.
Ash Legion Soldier: Stealth, patience, ambush: I've been doing this since the fahrar.
Iron Legion Soldier: It's a sure path to fresh meat.
Blood Legion Soldier: Patience is overrated. I'd rather chase my prey.
Ash Legion Soldier: And we'll eat like kings when you flush the prey to us.
Blood Legionnaire: What are we doing here?
Ash Legion Soldier (1): We're making traps and weapons, thickwit.
Blood Legionnaire: I'd rather die with my enemy's sinew between my teeth than waste my time tinkering like an asura.
Ash Legion Soldier (2): Ghosts don't have flesh, idiot. This is where we make the right tool for the job.
Ash Legion Soldier (1): I’d rather stalk my prey and bring it down with strength. Fishing is too… lazy.
Ash Legion Soldier (2): That’s why I always deliver a death blow while it’s still flopping around.
Blood Legionnaire: I like mine fresher than that. Pull the hook, put the head in my mouth, and (chomp).
Iron Legion Soldier (1): Is that the gladium?
Iron Legion Soldier (2): Yeah. Rumor is he ate his warband to survive while stranded in the Shiverpeaks.
Iron Legion Soldier (1): That’s not what I heard. Your version is more interesting, though.
Engineer Lynnka Steelbender: Ebonhawke Separatists have blocked the road and are bombarding the area with catapults. Someone has to stop them!
