When the NPCs spawn at Scout's Clearing

Vigil Huntsman: Sir, scouts have reported strange ruins deeper inland. They're saying the whole area merits investigation.
Squad Leader Perun: Good. We'll assemble a team to investigate and secure it. Prepare. We'll be heading that way shortly.

If no player activates the escort event within a few minutes

Squad Leader Perun: We're still looking for volunteers. We need to secure the ruins area on our flank.

Squad Leader Perun becomes interactive and waits for a player to start the event. On activation

Vigil Huntsman: Sir, the squad is ready and eager to get underway. We have to secure the ruins before we lose any more crew.
Squad Leader Perun: Excellent. Stay sharp, everyone. We don't know what we may encounter out there.

After traveling a short distance west up the hill from Scout's Clearing

Vigil Marksman: Shhh. You hear that? I heard something.
Vigil Huntsman: What? I didn't hear anything. What'd you hear?

A group of several pocket raptors spawns just ahead of the escort party

Scout Leader Perun: Well, they've undoubtedly heard you. How about a little silent running, eh? We're not out of the danger zone yet.

After defeating the first group of pocket raptors

Vigil Marksman: Bleh, lizards. Lizards give me the heebie-jeebies.
Vigil Huntsman: Not me. I've always been fond of lizards. They appeal to the cold-blooded killer in me.
Scout Leader Perun: Less talk. More action.

A second group of pocket raptors spawns as the group moves up the path

Vigil Hunstman: Oh, look. New friends!
Vigil Marksman: You really need to make better friends.

After defeating the second group of pocket raptors

Squad Leader Perun: That's the last of them. Let's continue.

Two groups of converging rolling devils appear

Vigil Marksman: First raptors, then rolling devils! We may as well be back in the jungle.
Squad Leader Perun: Hostiles spotted! Ready weapons, everyone.

After clearing the group of rolling devils

Vigil Marksman: We're almost there. I think I spotted what looks like ruins ahead.
Squad Leader Perun: About time. I thought we'd never get there and I'd be stuck listening to you two yammer me to death.

Approaching the Eternal Pool

Vigil Marksman: Sir, I sense a great deal of nature magic at this site.
Squad Leader Perun: Well, we are in nature. Is there something special about it?
Vigil Marksman: I think so. I encountered this once before, in the jungle. It feels...druidic.
Squad Leader Perun: That's ancient magic. Don't anyone let your guard down.

Entering the Eternal Pool cavern (follow on event begins)

Druid Stormknot: Stay back! This is sacred ground! You must not contaminate it!
Vigil Marksman: Sir, we appear to be locked in.
Angered Nature Spirit: Kill them! Return them to the land.
Squad Leader Perun: Whoa! Defend yourselves!
