- 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 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 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 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!
- Getting there
