Meeting Grub Master Jephtl at the Grub Pit tunnel entrance:
Grub Master Jephtl: Friends! I will be blunt. We are losing.
Grub Master Jephtl: If Teku Nuhoch is to weather this storm, we must match the strength of our enemies.
Grub Master Jephtl: We need beetles!
Reaching the hatching site:
Grub Master Jephtl: Here is where our beetle larvae hatch.
As the progress bar increases:
Grub Master Jephtl: We protect them and this place. That is how our two species will survive—together.
Grub Master Jephtl: These larvae will grow to become mighty beetles, if only we can keep them safe.
Grub Master Jephtl: Our larvae flourish, and soon their transformation will begin. They'll have legs!
Grub Master Jephtl: Our enemies think they can crush us, but our full-grown beetles will be doing the crushing around here.
Grub Master Jephtl: Such tiny, fragile things. We must prevent them from becoming food.
Grub Master Jephtl: Teku Nuhoch may be threatened, but not for long.

On event completion:
Grub Master Jephtl: Come! Look! The larvae are growing and changing. They are strong. I believe they will survive.
Grub Master Jephtl: We must be ready to tend the young beetles. They have a difficult journey ahead.
