At Loch Jezt
Interesting...inverse parabolic flux dampening.
Talk more option tango.png What are you doing?
We're studying the bridge. It's been floating for ages with no apparent means of support. No outside influence. Scientific curiosity demands we find the mysterious mechanism that makes it float.
Talk end option tango.png Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png That's interesting. Bye.
At Thaumanova Reactor
Watch your step, especially if you enter the reactor. The Inquest did a number on this place. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't have secondary magicosplosions or waves of surreality fluctuations.
Talk more option tango.png What is this place?
It's a city. Or rather, it was a city. But the Inquest had a lab buried deep beneath it. Judging by the extent of magical fallout, they must've been conducting some frighteningly powerful research there.
Talk more option tango.png What happened?
They stretched the Eternal Alchemy to its limits, and the whole place blew. Catastrophic meltdown. We'll be cleaning it up for years and the survivors may never be the same.
Talk end option tango.png Tragic. Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png I see.
Talk more option tango.png What are some of the dangers?
If contaminated, you could up with your teeth turned backward, your memories flipped inside out, your brains in your rump, or feet for hands. We haven't seen these symptoms yet, but we expect them.
Talk more option tango.png What is this place? (same as above)
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the warning.
Talk end option tango.png I will. Thanks.
At Infernal Cape
Still alive, I see. Keep it up.
Talk more option tango.png I plan to. Any insight into the Destroyers?
Something's not right, I can tell you that, but we need more data before we can know for sure. I think we're in for a surprise.
Talk end option tango.png Interesting. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png Hello. No Time to talk. I'll be back.
At Siren's Landing
Hm, fascinating. Did you see that?
Talk more option tango.png See what?
Those Risen acknowledge one another. Have you ever seen them fight? It's as if they know...they are kindred spirits.
Talk end option tango.png Never thought of it that way. Almost humanizes them.
Talk end option tango.png I need to go. Good day to you.
Nope. No. Don't talk to me. I'm counting Risen, tracking their movements. I can't be distracted.
Talk more option tango.png Why are you doing that?
It's important for our success and failure criteria. If we know how many we have to remove, we can track our progress. All important data... Oh, now I've lost count!
Talk end option tango.png I need to go. Good day to you.
Talk end option tango.png I need to go. Good day to you.
