Prior to event activation, these dialogues will keep repeating until the event becomes available.
Larano: Remember the good old days when Balthazar was on our side, great heroes visited regularly, and bad guys were defeated?
Chessa: We could use a few of those adventurers right now. Most Elonians are either Awakened or enamored with Joko.
Larano: And they think we're poor, misguided spirits.
Kane: All of them were born into Joko's Rule. They've never known anything better.
Chessa: I hate Joko.
Kane: I'm so glad Dunkoro suggested that we keep watch outside of the Lair.
Chessa: I know, just to get away from the curator.
Larano: And we thought he was insufferable when he was alive. Spending eternity with his ghost... I weep.
Chessa: He's twice the snake he used to be. I'll bet he still sends people into danger to protect himself.
Kane: That ghost owes me five gold. He never paid me for being his guide more than two centuries ago!
Larano: Let it go. What would you do with five gold anyway?
Kane: All right, I have to ask: When did we become...aware...of the present? Do you remember?
Larano: No. It's like going unconscious... You don't always remember how it happened. You just know you that you're now awake.
Chessa: Heard it had to do with Joko's meddling in the Underworld. But, whatever it was, our minds are here now.
Chessa: Joko must really hate us. He even went so far as to make those Awakened ghost eaters.
Larano: Well, he can't control us or turn us into Awakened. That spells trouble for him.
Kane: If he keeps sending his reanimated stooges after us, he'll get more than trouble.
Larano: That's the problem with Awakened - they never go away.
Chessa: Neither do we.
Kane: I feel like I'm on ghost eater high alert all the time these days.
Larano: Can we funnel some ghost eaters to the curator? Please?
Chessa: I wish, but no. Our friends are near there, too.
Larano: Where are the Sunspears? Shouldn't they be fighting for Elona and cleaning up this mess?
Kane: I haven't heard so much as a whisper about them. My guess? They're all either dead or hiding.
Chessa: That's a morbid thought. If they were dead, some of them would be among us.
Kane: I haven't kept up with the news.
Larano: I guess I was picturing a whole slew of them showing up to squash Joko's putrid empire.
Chessa: Speaking of whispers... There may be no Sunspears left, but there is someone who could rally the mortals.
Once the event becomes available
Kane: The Awakened and Forged are setting up siege engineers at our perimeter.
Chessa: I see them - there, across the sands. We need to stop those Forged weapons.
Larano: And the awakened have their weapons atop that hill... Can't we just tell them to come back later?
Chessa: The ghosts of the Lair are not an army. If we can't fight one enemy, how can we fight two?
Larano: He's right, but we have to find a way.
Kane: Those Forged and Awakened fighting over there have given me an idea.
Kane: Remember those old junundu lures our Forgotten friend used? The ones that you baited with sulfur crystals?
Chessa: Sure, but what do we need junundu for?
Kane: What do you think would happen if we stuck some giant wurms right into the middle of those battles?
Larano: Sounds fun. I'm in. Let's split up and see how many crystals we can get, then bait the lures and stand back.
Chessa: We'll need help to get all those crystals fast enough, but that shouldn't be a problem. Let's do it.
Kane: We've got a plan to bait the old junundu lures with sulfur crystals, but we need help. You up to it?
Once an event has been accepted or three minutes has passed
Kane: I hope we got enough help. Since we're splitting up, we'll each need extra hands.
Chessa: Guess we'll find out. Now let's go already - those sulfur crystals are a bit ephemeral, so they need to be gathered fast.
Larano: Bet I can get my lures baited faster than you two.
Chessa: You're on. Good hunting, and see you back there. Okay, move out!
Kane: We can't allow them to get any closer. We must defend the Lair!
Upon event failure
Chessa: Oh, no! The sulfur crystals are fading, and we failed to summon the wurm! Fall back!
Larano: Well, he can't control us or turn us into Awakened. That spells trouble for him.
Kane: If he keeps sending his reanimated stooges after us, he'll get more than trouble.
Larano: That's the problem with Awakened - they never go away.
Chessa: Neither do we.
