Shortly after Workshop Restoration 1
Castor Shoutsman: This place is epic, epic, epic!
Brine Clutchall: You can say that again!
Sophia Carriker: But please don't.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Welcome to our tavern, strangers! Are you the three Initiative specialists I heard would be joining us?
Castor Shoutsman: Congratulations, you are correct!
Brine Clutchall: He's always like that. You get used to it.
Sophia Carriker: Or you'll invest in earplugs.
Brine Clutchall: Brine Clutchall. I'm here to set up a market. A pleasure to meet you, barkeep.
Sophia Carriker: I'm Sophia Carriker, retired captain. Her to establish a war room for the guild.
Castor Shoutsman: Castor Shoutsman! Arena announcer extraordinaire!
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Welcome, friends. I'm, Gamli Aðalsteinnson, proprietor of this tavern. Nice to meet you.
Feel free to grab some food and drink. I'm sure guild representatives will be here to discussyour specialties soon.
Brine Clutchall: Thank you, Gamli. I am hungry, come to think of it.
Castor Shoutsman: Ah, yes! Food fight!
Sophia Carriker: (sigh) Kormir, grant me patience.
Before Arena Restoration 1
Howdy! I'm the great Castor Shoutsman, and it's time for this guild to get its ARENA on! Oh, yeah!
(If you are representing the guild)
Talk merchant tango.png Uh...right! What's required for this guild that thing?
Talk more option tango.png Who are you?
Haven't you heard of me? What...? No? What do you mean "no"? I'm the finest arena announcer in Tyria, of course!
Talk more option tango.png Tell me more.
I've worked the gladiatorial circuit in the Citadel, the duelist's fields in Divinity's Reach, the brawler pits in Hoelbrak... You really haven't heard of me?
Talk more option tango.png Well, maybe I heard something once?
I knew it. See? I'm a legend in my own mind. own time! Yes. That.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png Perhaps later.
Immediately after Arena Restoration 1 completes
I see you've decided to start constructing an arena. Great idea! Splendid!
I'll run over and make sure they get started properly!
Temporary. Temporary? I'm bad with temporary! I'm an all-or-nothing kind of guy!
It's all right! It's okay. This won't last forever. That's what temporary means, right?
I'm sure we'll have a full-time, no-holds-barred arena in no time!
After Arena Restoration 1
Less talk, more FIGHTING! Oh, yeah!
(If you are representing the guild)
Talk merchant tango.png Hey, Castor? What upgrades are available for our arena?
Talk more option tango.png Who are you? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png How is our arena doing?
(If at Arena Restoration 1)
It's deader than a political election. Seriously! I'm still waiting on construction to finish. Then we can all drink a tall, frosty glass of BATTLE!
(If at Arena Restoration 2)
It's FIGHTtastic! Have you seen the battles? The skirmishes? The RUMBLES? Have you witnessed righteous pain being dished out, fresh and piping hot? Get in there and GET SOME!
Talk back option tango.png I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png Nothing right now. Thanks.
Immediately after Arena Restoration 2 completes
Men and women, boys and girls, the arena is now open!
Challenge your friends! Pummel your neighbors! Batter your guildmates! Badger your ex!
It's time to rumble!


I spent my youth narrating hamster races.
Don't let 'em take away your dreams!
Boom! Get ready for showtime!
Quit stalling. Start ranking!
An announcer is only as good as the game!
Be at the right place at the right time, or you're just plain wrong!
Don't miss our next exciting event!
Get out of the lobby and into the ring!
Fights are exciting. Standing here is exciting! Everything is exciting!



  • When initiating a conversation with Castor, he sometimes says "Tons of damage!", which is a reference to David "Phreak" Turley, a League of Legends caster and commentator.
  • His name is likely a reference to the Authorized Shoutcaster Program, and to shoutcasters in general.
