Ambient dialogue[edit]

Priory Historian (1): It's way too cold here! Good thing there's so much coal around to burn, or I'd freeze.
Priory Historian (2): Aren't you a norn? Don't norns like the cold?
Priory Historian (1): Well, yes, but I also like the heat as much as anybody.
Priory Historian (2): I think you spent too much time "researching" in Southsun.
Priory Historian (1): Hey! There was a lot of important work to do there!
Priory Researcher (2): What's the latest on that expedition that's been trapped in the ruins?
Priory Researcher (3): Last I heard, they're holed up in a room somewhere on the first floor. Destroyers have them boxed in.
Priory Researcher (3): I think they're goin to send a team down to try and rescue them.
Priory Researcher (2): I'd volunteer, but my skills are limited to nonviolent research. I'd end up trapped down there with them.
Priory Arcanist: I'm surprised to find so many destroyers here.
Priory Researcher (4): You are? Really? Didn't you see how deep the dwarven excavation is?
Priory Arcanist: Good point. They must have hit a lava flow and flooded the lower areas.
Priory Researcher (4): I expect Primordus's minions have been slowly taking over the area since the dwarves went underground.
Priory Arcanist: Unbelievable. Look how far it goes.
Priory Explorer: How are we ever going to get down there?
Priory Arcanist: There must be stairs somewhere. Surely no one would build such a large structure without stairs.
Priory Explorer: I don't know. It looks like we need to build a ladder or jump. I vote jump.
Priory Arcanist: Jump? Are you crazy? I don't have a glider!
Priory Explorer: Only joking. Maybe we can get one of those creatures I've seen people riding.
Priory Explorer: There must be one that can get us down there safely.
Priory Researcher (5): I wonder what these runes mean. Some of them seem to be different from others.
Rhoban: I'd think an oh-so-smart scholar like you'd recognize a puzzle when you saw it.
Priory Researcher (5): A puzzle? Why would the dwarves choose to install such a feature here, of all places?
Rhoban: To keep out gravel-brained thieves, obviously. There used to be a huge bank buried here at one time or another.
Rhoban: Any greedy loot-snatcher who couldn't figure them out would end up getting pranked.
Rhoban: Though sometimes runes are just clever locks for doors. It's not all tricks all the time, you know.
Priory Researcher (5): I see. This seems like an area of investigation that may prove fuitful to our expedition. I'll add it to my notes.
Expedition Leader Shauna: We should consider relocating and joining the other group on the surface.
Rhoban: But it took you all that work to get set up down here. I remember because you wouldn't shut up about it.
Expedition Leader Shauna: Well, we're not all made of stone, you know. I tan easy, and I burn even easier.
Rhoban: You're talking about the destroyers. Well, can't say I blame you. I'm not a fan myself.
Expedition Leader Shauna: What do you think we should do?
Rhoban: I think you should let me get back to my napping and make your own decisions about what to do. You're the leader.
Near the Bounty Board
Order of Shadows Agent: Reports of creatures driven insane by ley energy are coming from all over. Are you going to help?
Order of Shadows Agent: Another ley-maddened beast is threatening our safety. Who will take on Matriarch Sheerfeather?
Order of Shadows Agent: Looking for a bounty contract? May I suggest the ley-crazed destroyer threatening Priory workers?
Order of Shadows Agent: Prime bounty contract here: Avel Stonejaw, the minotaur. Take him out, and you'll be famous.
Order of Shadows Agent: The warg Havocwreaker is living up to his name. Hunt him down. End his madness.
Order of Shadows Agent: The people need your help. Silkears the Fierce has gone from "nuisance" to "major threat."
Order of Shadows Agent: Ellutherius Wintergust, chronically bored djinn, has taken to creating his own fun. Deadly fun.
