Ambient dialogue[edit]

Traveler: I made my fortune as a merchant, and now I'm ready to retire.
Citizen: I always figured you'd go into politics, maybe even try for a seat on the council.
Traveler: Not interested. I just want to sit back and enjoy what I've earned.
Citizen (charr 1): My son is fighting in the pit again.
Citizen (charr 2): About damn time! You gotta raise these kids right.
Citizen (charr 1): What're you looking at?
Citizen (charr 2): I'm starin' at you, punk.
Citizen (charr 1): You tryin' to start somethin'? You gotta problem?
Citizen (charr 2): Yeah. Humans and sylvari don't put up much of a fight.
Citizen (1): My guild is being ruined by all the drama going on.
Citizen (2): Which guild is that?
Citizen (1): The Traveling Thespians.
Citizen (charr 1): You know, I wanna raise my kid like we did in Blood Legion, but it's tough.
Citizen (charr 2): Yeah, we need more fahrars here. Who's gonna train our kids?
Citizen (charr 1): I could train him at home, but he needs to grow up with a warband.
Citizen (charr 2): If he's hanging out with sylvari and asura, he's gonna be weak.
Citizen (charr 1): But he still has to know how to trade with them, right? He's gotta work with them.
Citizen (charr 2): No one said living here was gonna be easy.
Citizen (charr 1): I'm taking the asura gate back to the Black Citadel.
Citizen (charr 2): That ain't cheap. You taking your kid back home?
Citizen (charr 1): Yeah, I want him to see what a charr city looks like.
Citizen (charr 2): But he still needs a warband. Cubs are gonna pick fights with him left and right.
Citizen (charr 1): That's the idea. He's gonna see what life was like for his old man.
Citizen (1): Have you heard any news about Logan Thackeray lately?
Citizen (2): No. I assume he's still sitting by the queen's side.
Citizen (1): That's where I would be if I was him.
Citizen (1): I heard Caithe was in town the other day.
Citizen (2): Really? Did you actually see her?
Citizen (1): You never see Caithe unless she wants you to.
Guard (1): Ever been to a moot?
Guard (2): I loved it!
Guard (1): Oh, the norn stories, resounding and bold, powerful and visceral.
Guard (2): The fights, the ale, the drunken stumbling in the snow, and the wily yaks.
Guard (1): Vipers. That's the way to do it.
Guard (2): Are you still angry at him?
Guard (1): Of course. How can I get vipers?
Guard (2): I don't know. Let's talk about something else.
By the Lost Grotto
Whisper's Agent (1): I've acquired a valuable scroll. Should I keep it, sell it, or turn it in to the Priory?
Whisper's Agent (2): Why not make duplicates and do all three?
Whisper's Agent (1): I've got some Ash Legion charr lined up for a dice game.
Whisper's Agent (2): Do you want the ones that always come up odd, or even?
Whisper's Agent (1): Both. I'm not sure how I want the game to go yet.
Whispers Agent: Hello! You're new around here, aren't you? What do you know?
Scholar: I have spent my entire life pursuing knowledge. I know many, many things.
Whispers Agent: Let's start with things that are interesting to me.
Whispers Agent: [talking to herself] I don't like working here. I feel exposed, vulnerable.
Whispers Agent: Don't show it. There's nothing more conspicuous than trying to be inconspicuous.
