While en route to the Serpentwind
Yerkk: I've never in my life been so energized and frustrated simultaneously.
Lemm: What's the matter, chief?
Yerkk: I've observed skritt IQs increase as the number of them in proximity goes up, but where's the limit? I must know!
Lemm: I'm not sure it's wise to push some boundaries. Anything beyond "too far" is bad.
Yerkk: Where's your spirit of discovery? Imagine the implications! Accompany me as I collect specimens. Alive, of course.
Lemm: Very well, but I'm not going to enjoy it.
Yerkk: Come with me, NL4534. We're off the Serpentwind!
Before event, after reaching the Serpentwind
Lemm: What's the plan, chief? Skritt will be reluctant to volunteer for the experiment.
Yerkk: Simple. Find isolated skritt to beat into submission. A loner's IQ is insignificant, making it manipulable. 4534, activate protocol SCX22!
NL-4534: SCX—protocol—activated. I—am—a—skritt—magnet.
Lemm: That's the skritt capture protocol! I get it now. You want me to do your grunt work while the NL4534 plays nice.
Yerkk: What else are you good for? I need the NL4534 to herd our specimens. We can't have them turning on us, now can we?
On event start
Skritt Forager: Little big ears are here. Looking for trouble, I bet.
Yerkk: (laugh) No trouble. I'm here to request your assistance with an experiment. I'll pay you handsomely with food and water. Come along now.
Skritt Forager: Pfah! No! I don't like. Attack the little big ears!
Encountering a loner Skritt
Yerkk: Perfect! A skritt without its comrades. You'll have no choice but to participate in my experiment!
Yerkk: It's pointless to resist. We have ways of convincing you.
Yerkk: More skritt equals smarter skritt, but where is the limit?
Yerkk: These skritt can be positively fascinating! If not dangerous and often infuriating.
When a loner Skritt is subdued
Loner Skritt: I give up! Get your meanness off of me!
Loner Skritt: Ow, ow, ow! Stop with the hurtie!
Loner Skritt: Stop picking on me! I'm a little guy!
Loner Skritt: Oh! Ow! Ooh! Cut it out!
Loner Skritt: I swear I didn't know she had family! I'll make up for it!
Loner Skritt: Can I go home now? I'm done fighting.
Loner Skritt: You dented my head! Stop it!
Loner Skritt: Why are you clobbering me? I'm nice and stuff.
Loner Skritt: I'm your slave! Please don't kill me.
Loner Skritt: I won't cry. I won't cry. I won't cry. Don't you make me cry!
When a subdued Skritt moves to NL-4534
NL-4534: Hello, cutie. My-name-is-NL-4534. I-am-your-friend. Come-with-me.
Subdued Skritt: You're shiny. Oh. What's that? Can I have it?
NL-4534: It-is-a-required-piece-of-my-anatomy.
NL-4534: I-love-how-you-accessorize-with-dust. You-must-tell-me-your-secret. Follow-me.
NL-4534: Are-you-lost? Come-with-me. You-are-safe-with-me. You-can-hold-my-hand, if-you-want.
Subdued Skritt: Where are we going? I'm not sure this is such a good idea. Who are you?
NL-4534: I-am-your-friend. I-am-here-to-guide-you-to-candy-and-ice-cream.
Subdued Skritt: You're suspicious. Are you sure you're not leading us to doom?
NL-4534: I-am-your-friend. Do-you-like-candy? Do-you-like-ice-cream? Come-with-me.
Subdued Skritt: You dented my head! Stop it!
NL-4534: You-look-hungry. I-know-a-pantry-we-can-raid. Come-along
After success
Lemm: Excelsior! We have enough specimens to begin.
Yerkk: Most excellent! Let's get them back to the lab. I can't wait to begin the observation. This is so exciting! (giggle)


This event has a high chance to stall at the cavern entrance, breaking it and its chain until map expiration.
