Ambient dialogue[edit]

Kogga: The Gilded Hollow has a lot of history. We've just got to uncover it!
Kogga: I hope the Exalted don't mind us using the place. I mean, they didn't need it anymore, right?
Kogga: Archaeology's kind of a hobby...but I'm hoping to make it more of a profession.
Brine Clutchall: Everything going well? Need anything?
Guild Initiative Representative: We need to clear this tunnel to get to the good stuff further down.
Guild Initiative Representative: Which do you prefer? A pick or a shovel?
Guild Initiative Representative: Nothing wrong with a little honest work.
After claiming your guild hall, but before Tavern Restoration 1
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Hello there, friend! I'm the, err, provisioner sent from the Guild Initiative. Meaning, I make the chow.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Those shortsighted desk jockeys suggested a mess hall, but what we need is a proper tavern. Right?
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: I'll get something temporary set up while we plan a permanent establishment. Something classy. With beer.
After Tavern Restoration 1
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Great! I'm glad you agreed to "tavern" over "mess hall." You're clearly a smart bunch.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Let's see what we can get set up for you!
(After Gamli runs over to the tavern)
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Very nice! Now we've got a proper place to have a pint!
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: This spot will be comfy for entertaining newcomers, workers, visitors, and guild members.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Running a tavern takes a lot of work! I need to order supplies, stock the shelves, create a menu...
(After Rekka spawns at the central hollow waypoint but before she runs over to the tavern)
Rekka: Congratulations, I've arrived. No celebrations, please. I just want to start mining.
(After Rekka runs over to the tavern)
Rekka: Hey there! Barkeep! Whose ear do I bend about getting mining operations started around here?
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Mining? But you just got here! Pull up a chair, have a bit to eat.
Rekka: Eating? I've got no time for eating! There's stuff in the ground, and we need it!
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: You're very passionate about your work. What are you looking to mine, anyway?
Rekka: Raw aetherium! Initiative surveyors discovered an unusual concentration of it here. We might even hit a mother lode!
Rekka: That aetherium could provide a tremendous source of magic—once we dig it up. Now can you see why I'm so excited?
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: I can! Still, you can't mine on an empty stomach. Sit and eat. An official will come to discuss the mine soon enough.
After Tavern Restoration 2
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: This new tavern is a sight to see! I'll admit, I wasn't sure we'd get it repaired properly.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: But look at it now! Why, anyone would be proud to have a drink and share a story here.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: You've done well getting this place put together.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: You think it's nice now, wait 'til I start serving my famous rabbit stew!
After Workshop Restoration 1
Kensho Arrowsoul: I am pleased that you recognize the value in establishing a scribal workshop.
Kensho Arrowsoul: I will oversee a temporary space to begin our work. Hopefully soon the guild can create a more permanent studio.
Kensho Arrowsoul: This will be an adequate beginning. We have pen, and ink, and shelter.
Kensho Arrowsoul: Let us embark upon the ever-challenging study of magical scripts.
(After Castor Shoutsman, Brine Clutchall, and Sophia Carriker arrive at the central hollow waypoint)
Caster Shoutsman: This place is epic, epic, epic!
Brine Clutchall: You can say that again!
Sophia Carriker: But please don't.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Welcome to our tavern strangers! Are you the three Initiative specialists I heard would be joining us?
Castor Shoutsman: Congratulations, you are correct!
Brine Clutchall: He's always like that. You get used to it.
Sophia Carriker: Or you'll invest in earplugs.
Brine Clutchall: Brine Clutchall. I'm here to set up a market. A pleasure to meet you, barkeep.
Sophia Carriker: I'm Sophia Carriker, retired captain. Here to establish a war room for the guild.
Castor Shoutsman: Castor Shoutsman! Arena announcer extraordinaire!
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Welcome, friends. I'm Gamli Adalsteinnson, proprietor of this tavern. Nice to meet you.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Feel free to grab some food and drink. I'm sure guild representatives will be here to discuss your specialties soon.
Brine Clutchall: Thank you, Gamli. I am hungry, come to think of it.
Castor Shoutsman: Ah, yes! Food fight!
Sophia Carriker: (sigh) Kormir, grant me patience.
After Workshop Restoration 2
Kensho Arrowsoul: My people say that teaching is also a lesson. It is true. In helping the guild, I have learned much.
Kensho Arrowsoul: The study of pen and ink is as old as the tengu. My people consider it a sacred and beloved art.
Kensho Arrowsoul: I hope that you will understand that I do not undertake this task lightly.
Kensho Arrowsoul: Sharing knowledge is difficult for the tengu. We have been betrayed by others in our past.
Kensho Arrowsoul: I trust you. I trust this guild. It is my honor to educate and serve those whom I respect.
Kensho Arrowsoul: Ah, you think I am so different? You judge too much with your eyes alone.
Kensho Arrowsoul: My purpose is to find purpose. Can you say the same?
Kensho Arrowsoul: If you wait by the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy float by.
Kensho Arrowsoul: A grand day for an adventure.
Kensho Arrowsoul: The clock's ticking, and Tyria is at risk, hurry along now.
Kensho Arrowsoul: The sky above is bright and clear. I am grateful for every wind that rises.
After obtaining Market Restoration 1
Brine Clutchall: Wise move, starting reconstruction of the market. We'll need that to start up commerce.
Brine Clutchall: I want to make sure everything's perfect, so I'll go survey the build site.
Brine Clutchall: Well, it's a temporary setup, but it will suffice.
Brine Clutchall: We need more permanency if we want our customers to start forming habits.
Brine Clutchall: And by that I mean, if we want people to keep buying our goods!
After obtaining Market Restoration 2
Brine Clutchall: Finished at last!
Brine Clutchall: Money for me, merchandise for the guild...
Brine Clutchall: Then a little money for me, a little more merchandise for the guild...
Brine Clutchall: And then, when I retire, I buy a sweet little vacation house in Garenhoff. Right by the lake!
Brine Clutchall: We're going to have a beautiful future, my friend. A beautiful future.
After Mine Excavation 1
Rekka: Finally! We're breaking ground on the mine! Uh, literally and figuratively speaking.
Rekka: Let's go see what the dig site looks like!
Rekka: Hmm. Not bad, not bad at all! Solid geology. Plenty of room for expansion.
Rekka: I just know we're going to find tons of raw aetherium here. You'll see!
Rekka: And in that vein...heh...I do have some thoughts about increasing efficiency.
Rekka: For example, do the miners really need three entirely separate meal breaks? Why not eat everything at once?
(After Kensho arrives at the central hollow waypoint)
Kensho Arrowsoul: Greetings. I have come to share my wisdom with your guild.
(After Kensho walks over to the tavern)
Kensho Arrowsoul: Greetings, tavernmaster. May the winds lift you to glory.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Winds...? Uh, well, thank you. May the winds lift you...a beer.
Kensho Arrowsoul: Beer, you say? Ah, yes. I would like some of this beverage. Thank you for your offer.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: Before you drink anything, I should ask you-have you had beer before?
Kensho Arrowsoul: Only once, when celebrating the death of Zhaitan with some norn in our trading post. It is...quite pleasant, this beer.
Gamli Aðalsteinnson: We're going to get along just fine.
After Mine Excavation 2
Rekka: Excellent. Expanding the mine will allow us to increase production!
Rekka: We're definitely going to need more aetherium storage tanks.
After Mine Excavation 3
Rekka: I'm very pleased. This place is finally starting to look like a functional mine.
Rekka: Since we have the space, I'm thinking we should move the miners' beds in here. Get rid of that wasted travel time!
After War Room Restoration 2
Sophia Carriker: Finally finished! It's a weight off my mind to see this place complete.
Sophia Carriker: New tactics, guild badges, soldiers, crafting... This will give the guild a fighting chance!
Sophia Carriker: I wish I could go out and fight, but those days are over for me.
Sophia Carriker: I'm content to stay in the war room and help where I can.
Sophia Carriker: Anytime you need me, I'll be here.
