When event begins
Lord Faren: The defenses are finished, Master Bongo. The camp is ready to defend against any invader. Now, about my training...
Bongo the One-Eyed: Your training. Yes, yes, fine, but I have one condition.
Lord Faren: Anything.
Bongo the One-Eyed: Once your training is complete, I never see you again. Not ever!
Lord Faren: Ah, yes, I see. A swordsmaster must travel the world! It would be a terrible waste for us to stay in the same locale.
Bongo the One-Eyed: Er...yes. Yes, exactly, whatever you say. Agreed? Very well. Your training begins now.
Bongo the One-Eyed: Let's see how you handle some of my soldiers.
During the event
Gertrude: Oh well done! Good Show!
Bongo the One-Eyed: Very good, Faren. Remember the old training dummy golems? They've been upgraded. Try your skills against the Mark IV.
Baron Corone: Nice hit, Lord Faren.
Bongo the One-Eyed: Looks like you're getting tired, Faren.
Baron Edmonds: Go, Lord Faren!
Bongo the One-Eyed: Not bad. But a true swordmaster must be prepared for anything. Ready yourself!.
Baroness Jasmina: That was a surprisingly good attack!.
Bongo the One-Eyed: Ha! I thought that might throw you off balance. Keep at it, Faren.
Reth: Whoa! Look at you! You did it!
Bongo the One-Eyed: You're doing better that I expected. Beat me, and your training is complete. Are you ready? I move so fast, I'm an army of one!
Upon successful completion of the event
Minister Merula: Ha! That'll teach you to mess with my boy...with Lord Faren!
Bongo the One-Eyed: Stop, stop! Enough flailing about! Your training is complete.
Lord Faren: Are you sure? Perhaps just one more lesson on that flick-and-twist maneuver?
Bongo the One-Eyed: No, no! You're definitely a master now, Faren. So leave me alone!
Baroness Jasmina: Faren, people are suffering, and we need to Pact's help. If only we could get a signal above the canopy.
Lord Faren: I saw some tall ruins when we were crashing. I think I can find them.
Reth: You do that. I"ll stay here and defend the camp.
Baron Edmonds: Marius and I will stay, too. I'm sure you'll be fine, er...swordmaster.
Lord Faren: Swordmaster Faren. That does sound good. Follow me, to adventure!
