Ambient dialogue[edit]

Outside and within the Consortium Headquarters
Administrative Assistant (human): I just hate being cooped up in there, you know?
Administrative Assistant (asura): I heard there might be a new bakery going in, down the street.
Administration Assistant (asura): Have you ever actually seen the founder around headquarters?
Administration Assistant (human): As far as I know, no one's seen him anywhere in years.
Administration Assistant (human): The subdirector says she's been assured by Chairman Macro that Boll's still calling the shots.
Administration Assistant (asura): (snort) I wouldn't be surprised if Ol' Chairman Overkill ate the guy himself.
Administration Assistant (human): Oh! You're awful. (giggle)
Administration Assistant (human): Did you hear? The directors are talking about expanding.
Administration Assistant (asura): No! Where'd you hear that? We're barely staffed up here yet.
Administration Assistant (human): Keep it quiet, but the subdirector has me doing a feasibility study on a possible site.
Administration Assistant (human): I can't say where it is, but she claims this large parcel of land might just make itself available very soon.
Intern: Seems like I should have been hired on by now. If that was going to happen.
Intern: I didn’t even realize there was any head count for full-time positions.
Intern: I write the proposal, she pitches it to the client, they go for it. But who gets the credit? I’m nobody.
Intern (1): They're spraying our building for karka hatchlings tomorrow.
Intern (2): Really? I missed that memo. Maybe it will actually work, this time.
Intern (1): Here's hoping. But, hey! Day off, at least.
Intern (2): Wait—you get paid time off?
Intern (1): No.
Intern (1): I held open a door for the chairman yesterday, and I think he might have noticed me.
Intern (2): (snort) Not sure that's a good thing. You're lucky he didn't take a bite out of you.
Intern (1): Speaking of, have you eaten this week?
Intern (2): Not really, no.
Intern (1): (sigh) Me either.
Junior Brand Manager: I'm just not convinced our perceived brand identity reflects the consumer's actual perception of our brand.
Junior Brand Manager: You see what I mean, don't you? The metrics just need to be unskewed to account for bias.
Personal Assistant: Sure, of course. That's just common sense.
Junior Brand Manager: Exactly. I know what I'm talking about. I've been at this for months already.
In and around the Order of Whispers Headquarters
Lionguard (1): Looters. That's eight this week.
Lionguard (2): They're getting bolder.
Lionguard (1): Of course they are. We barely have enough Lionguard to watch the city for one shift.
Local: He took my weapon, so I took his head.
Local: No, not that. Skritt. I said skritt.
Local: Get in, get out. That’s what they said. They lied.
Local (1): So there I was, covered in aether good, and this merchant had the nerve to ask if I'd guard his yak.
Local (2): What'd you do?
Local (1): Slapped it on the rump nd sent it running to the gate. You shoulda seen the look on the guy's face as he ran after it.
Local (2): (laugh) You big softy.
Local (1): You know that friend I was telling you about?
Local (2): The one who infiltrated that one organization?
Local (1): Yeah. That's the one. He found out about you know what.
Local (2): Did know who?
Local (1): Yeah. Talked her right into the ground.
Local (1): That's nothing. Remember that one place...last week?
Local (2): How could I forget? I nearly lost my "stuff."
Local (1): Exactly. Well, it's under new management, if you know what I mean.
Local (2): No kidding? Was it because of we had?
Local (1): Most definitely. (laugh)
Local (2): I'm leaving tomorrow, you know?
Local (1): Already? It's that critical that you...visit your grandmother?
Local (2): She's about to blow a gasket. Somebody needs to bring her down a notch.
Local (1): I bet she knows a lot history. You should ask before she kicks the bucket.
Local (2): Oh, I plan to grill her, all right. We need that "recipe."
Ogden Stonehealer: You've led an interesting life, my mechanical friend. And you show an intriguing degree of independent thought.
Hero-Tron: My—personality—matrix—was—based—on—the—engrams—of—Subdirector—Noll, a—flawed—genius. More—flaw—than—genius, actually.
Hero-Tron: Trauma—and—experience—caused—my—cerebral—systems—to—develop—stochastically—into—new—and—unusual—configurations.
Hero-Tron: As—such, I—have—acquired—a—series—of—eclectic—skills. Would—you—like—to—hear"The—Ballad—of—the—Hobo—Bindle?"
Ogden Stonehealer: No thank you. But I know some scholars who would love to interview you.
Hero-Tron: I—will—make—myself——duties—as—an—official—representative—of—Lion's—Arch—permitting.
Outside Captain Kiel's Office
Cub: I—am—super—useless. Beep.
Kid: (giggle)
Cub: No—really—I—am—a—hero.
Kid: (giggle)
Kid: (rude noise)
Cub: (laugh)
Kid: Bla—bla—bla—blah.
Cub: (giggle)
Kid: Beep—beep. Who—wants—to—peel—potatoes?
Cub: (snicker)
Cub: ♪Spare change, anyone?♪
Kid: (giggle)
Near the western housing area
Information Seeker: Hi, hi. What'cha got for me?
Sneaky Kit: Depends on what'cha got for me.
Information Seeker: Oh, right. Here's a shiny.
Sneaky Kit: Lots of great, big crates at the docks today. Bossy-cat was yelling at his guards.
Sneaky Kit: Everyone mad about missing shinies. Guards pointed at me, and I ran.
Information Seeker: I see. Keep your eyes and ears open. But take care.
After Path of Fire launch
Citizen (1): I've been a devout follower of Balthazar all my life. I refuse to believe he's indiscriminately killing people.
Citizen (1): He's the god of fire and war. He's got the backbone to do what's necessary.
Citizen (2): You sound like a Zaishen fanatic.
Refugee (1): The Branded started moving, then Balthazar showed up with his army. That's two hostile forces right on Joko's doorstep.
Refugee (1): Why won't Joko respond?
Refugee (2): He doesn't think like we do. He's undead, and immortal. Insane.
Refugee (2): He probably let all those people die so he'd have a fresh batch of corpses for his army.
Citizen (3): We're talking about the god of fire and war. Do I need to spell it out? War creates misery. Period.
Citizen (4): What about Grenth? He's the god of death, and death creates all kinds of misery.
Citizen (3): Death is inevitable. War isn't
Citizen (4): Maybe not. But sometimes it's necessary.



Sometimes Marcello DiGiacomo's will take out his instrument and start playing and singing. The audio from this often overlap with his ambient dialogue.
