Orson is a human working at the Ettinworks Lab in Lornar's Pass, Southern Shiverpeaks.

Dialogue[edit]

I'm working on a plan to infiltrate the ettin camp south of here. Any ideas?
Talk more option tango.png
Why would you want to infiltrate the ettins?
Since I was a kid, I've had this deep-seated fear of them. I think the only way to get over my fear is to live with them so I can fully understand them. Maybe then I'll be cured.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, good luck with that.
Talk more option tango.png
Have you tried just killing them?
No, of course not! I want to learn from them. I couldn't possibly kill them.
Talk more option tango.png
Why do you want to study the ettins?
Since I was a kid, I've had this deep-seated fear of them. I think the only way to get over my fear is to live with them so I can fully understand them. Maybe then I'll be cured.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, good luck with that.
Talk end option tango.png
Well, that was my best idea. Good luck.

I don't have time for this.
During Give Orson components for his ettin-proof suit
You wouldn't happen to have any ettin refuse, would you?
Talk give option tango.png
I do have ettin refuse.
Oh, thank you. This is some strong-smelling stuff! It's perfect.
Talk end option tango.png
You're...welcome. Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
Ettin refuse? You mean, like, their garbage?
I'm building a suit to infiltrate the ettin camp south of here. Their refuse is just what I need to get the ettin smell right so they won't suspect me. Can you help?
Talk more option tango.png
Why are you trying to infiltrate the ettin camp?
I...have this deep-seated fear of them. To get over my fear, I want to live with them, learn what makes them click. It may not make much sense, but I feel like understanding them might help.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll let you know if I find any.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll let you know if I find some.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't have time for this.
During Venpa's test run of his suit
This is so exciting! I can't wait to see how the ettins react to my ettin suit.
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck.
During Free Venpa and help her reach safety
Can you help me? My colleague was testing an invention for me and ran into a bit of a problem.
Talk more option tango.png
What happened?
I made an ettin suit to try and help me research the ettins to the south. It should be nearly indistinguishable from a real ettin. And I kinda got my colleague, Venpa, to test it for me.
Talk more option tango.png
So your suit failed?
It didn't exactly fail. The ettins didn't attack her, they just kind of...walked off with her.
Talk more option tango.png
I'll help her.
Talk more option tango.png
I'll gladly try to help her.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
I'll gladly help her.
Thank you. Her name's Venpa, and she should be in the ettin camp south of here. I hope she's all right.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't have time for this.
During Help Venpa finish the Ettin Proof Suit Mark II
I'm glad Venpa's safe, but I'm a bit worried about all this revenge talk.
Talk more option tango.png
What happened?
I wanted to research the ettins south of here, so I built a suit to disguise the wearer as an ettin. Then I kind of made her test it out for me.
Talk more option tango.png
So the suit failed? Is that the problem?
It didn't exactly fail. The ettins didn't attack her, they just kind of...took her. I'm not sure what happened after that, but she's not happy about it.
Talk more option tango.png
And now she wants revenge.
Talk more option tango.png
What was that about revenge earlier?
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png
What's this about revenge?
Venpa has a mean streak to her. She says she'll build a suit of her own and use it to destroy the ettins. She's not only stealing my suit idea, she's also going to destroy my favorite research subjects!
Talk more option tango.png
What happened? (same as above)
Talk more option tango.png
Why are you interested in ettins?
I have a deep-seated fear of them. to get over my fear, I want to live amongst them, and learn what makes them tick. It may not make sense, but that's the truth.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck with that.
Talk end option tango.png
Good-bye.
During Destroy Venpa's malfunctioning Ettin Crusher
Venpa's Ettin Crusher is out of control! We have to destroy it and get her out.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll do what I can.
After Destroy Venpa's malfunctioning Ettin Crusher
Thanks for helping out with the ettin research—and subsequent accidents. We wouldn't be here without you.

What can you sell me?
