Ambient dialogue[edit]

Peacemaker: That golem might be an energy hog, but without it, the dangers of this island would consume us.
Peacemaker: These readings are very curious. We'll have to send our results to Taimi.
Peacemaker: If I had a gold piece for every wurm I killed, I'd retire to Cantha!
Researcher: Watch out! Hot stuff coming through!
Researcher: Step aside! Good, clean, natural energy on its way!
Technician: Hmm. That's unexpected.
Technician: These readouts are intriguing. Very intriguing.
Technician: Curious result, but this may be an anomaly. We’ll need more samples to be sure.
Technician: The vapors. Feeling a little light-headed out here...
Technician: This place is a death trap. I'll be relieved when we're done here.
