Ambient dialogue[edit]

Gatekeeper (1): How long have you maintained the Rata Sum gate?
Gatekeeper (2): Too long. I put in a request for a transfer to Ebonhawke or Divinity's Reach.
Gatekeeper (1): You'd rather live among humans? Why?
Gatekeeper (2): Extracting gold from humans is child's play. I could charge per satchel without complaint.
Gatekeeper (1): So, I told him, "New regulations stipulate you must remove your boots and belt before traveling."
Gatekeeper (2): And he fell for it?
Gatekeeper (1): Completely. He had to hold his pants up as he entered the gate.
Mist Warrior: We'll never get recruits. These dustbunnies have no interest in gut-wrenching, mind-blowing war. The Mists are too exclusive.
Mist Warrior (1): C'mon, do your thing. Shout and be convincing. We need recruits! Our numbers are falling.
Mist Warrior (2): It's your turn to dance and sing. I'm exhausted. The Mist War will still be there tomorrow.
Mist Warrior (1): (growl)
Mist Warrior (2): Ahem-join the Battle for the Mists! Defend our world! Geniuses and others needed to keep evil at bay! Come one, come all!
Mist Warrior: I've fought for years in the Mist War. I know what it's like. You know nothing.
Rata Sum Protector: Move—along. Do—not—congregate!
Squik: But I'm a merchant. This is where I conduct my business.
Rata Sum Protector: You—are—in—violation—of—city—regulations. You—will—be—reported!
Squik: My councillor will hear about this. I have rights... Why am I arguing with a golem?
Synergetics Apprentice: I've been delving into Eternal Alchemy theory.
Dynamics Apprentice: I just need to know what formulae to apply and how to account for the variables.
Synergetics Apprentice: Have you no intellectual interest in anything beyond your current project?
Dynamics Apprentice: Not remotely. Let the College of Statics find uses for my work.
Traveler (1): Are you spending any time at the Durmand Priory during your trip?
Traveler (2): Indeed. I have several days planned to stop in and meet with Gixx.
Traveler (1): Could you attempt to acquire a copy of "The Unexpurgated Journals of Oola" for me?
Traveler (1): I misplaced my copy, and my collection just isn't complete without it.
Traveler: Greetings and salutations!
Gatekeeper: What do you mean by that? What's your angle?
Traveler: Is the gate functioning normally today?
Gatekeeper: All spatial parameters are within approved safety margins.
Traveler: You certainly know how to reassure a traveler.
Traveler: What assurances do I have that I will make it safely to my expected destination?
Gatekeeper: If you don't survive the transit, you're entitled to a full refund.
Traveler: But... but... oh, fine.
Traveler (1): Where are you traveling today?
Traveler (2): I'm off to Lion's Arch. I have business with the Captain's Council.
Traveler (1): Be careful. They may be businesspeople today, but they were all pirates not too long ago.
Traveler (1): I heard a rumor that a human going to Divinity's Reach ended up in Black Citadel.
Traveler (2): Can you imagine if that had happened before the charr-human truce? Hah!
