Prior to the event
Captain Protmar: Depp, gather your workers. We're heading to Stromkarl Heights, to build a watchtower.
Worker Depp: Very well. Markus, Idian, are you ready to go?
Worker Idian: Yes, I believe I have what I need.
Worker Markus: I'm ready to go, too. Will you be our only guard, sir?
Captain Protmar: Not to worry, Markus. Crusader Soma is assisting us on this mission.
Worker Markus: Crusader Soma? At least the view will be rewarding on our journey.
Crusader Soma: Try anything, and I'll leave you to feed the ettins.
Worker Markus: Your grace and poise befits such beauty.
Captain Protmar: Move out. I'd like to avoid a casualty before leaving the fort.
On the way out of Concordia
Historian Yowan: Good luck Soma, try not to kill Markus.
Crusader Soma: That depends on him.
During any enemy attack
Captain Protmar: We've got incoming. Stand ready!
Halfway through the event
Worker Markus: Tell me, Depp, do you think a sonnet would melt Soma's cold heart?
Near the end
Worker Idian: I think a heartfelt sonnet can't miss.
Worker Markus: Striking girl with hair of fire... Warrior of spirited might...
Worker Markus: Sonnets are too hard. Maybe a haiku would be better?
On event success
Captain Protmar: At last! This is our building site.
Crusader Soma: What a relief. The trip was testing my patience.


This event will often stall. The workers players are supposed to protect will be nowhere to be seen.
