- Meeting Destiny's Edge
- Logan Thackeray: Well, hello. I'm glad to see you.
- Logan Thackeray waves at <character name>.
- Talking to Logan
- Logan: I'm glad you're going with us. You got my mail?
About that. I came to tell you that I may not be able to fight with you.
- Zojja: What? You're 74.3 percent of our firepower all by yourself!
That's an exaggeration.
- Zojja: Ahem. I'm learning how to exaggerate from Taimi, believe it or not. So, why can't you come with us?
I'm glad you finally noticed.
- Logan: I'm glad your recent battles haven't affected your modesty. So, why can't you come with us?
- (both continuing with)
- (if sylvari) I've had a calling, a new Wyld Hunt. I don't know how long it will take.
(if non-sylvari) I've been given a different mission that I can't turn down.
- Eir: What are you talking about? We're already one down with Rytlock gone.
I have to swear you to silence. This can't go beyond us.
- Logan: I think I can speak for all of us when I say we can keep your secret. What is it?
I had a vision from the Pale Tree, an important one. Glint had an egg.
- Caithe: A dragon egg? Where?
It's a long story, but it was in her lair. I've been there. I saw it.
- Logan: You've been busy. What happened to the egg?
A Zephyrite master took it for safekeeping.
- Caithe: Oh, I see. Your vision. The Pale Tree wants you to find and protect the egg. And, because of the crash, you're afraid this master is endangered?
Yes. I also saw a golden location. I believe he may be taking it there.
- Eir: If he is clever, then he has survived thus far. But he's in treacherous territory out there.
So you see why I have to do this before I can go with you.
- Zojja: A dragon hatchling could turn into an enemy if raised in the wrong company. Of course, you must save it. If it were to grow up as an ally to Tyria, it could change the course of history.
Exactly what I was thinking. I'm sorry. I'd love to stay here and prepare.
- Eir: But Glint never mentioned she had an egg. I would have...
It's okay. It has had protectors. And now, it has me as well.
- Logan: I'm flabbergasted. A dragon egg? You'll return when you're done, right? We may not leave immediately.
I definitely will.
- (if asura)
- Zojja: I wish you complete success.
- Thank you.
- (if human)
- Logan: I'm envious. A part of me wishes I could go with you and get away from the military battles. Your mission sounds so exciting. Good luck, my friend.
- Good luck to you, too. Your mission is no less important.
- (if norn)
- Eir: Be safe, and good hunting. Hopefully, we'll see you soon.
- I'm sure you will. Good hunting to you all.
- (if sylvari)
- Caithe: They don't know the half of how important this dragon egg is. I do. You must advance carefully. Do you understand?
- Yes, I understand. I'll be careful.
- I'm not sure when I'll be back. (only option for charr)
- Approaching your allies
- Kasmeer: It was beautiful. I wish you could have seen it. All crystals and rainbows.
- Marjory: We saw echoes from when the Master of Peace was there. He took an egg from the nest.
- Rox: A dragon egg?
- Braham: It all makes sense now. The Master of Peace has been on the run with it since the crash.
- Kasmeer: We need to find the Aspect Masters. It has something to do with the boss's vision.
- Talking to Marjory
- Marjory: If we find the Aspect Masters, we'll be well on our way to finding the Master of Peace.
That's right. Have any of you seen the Aspect Masters?
- Braham: Sorry. They haven't come back since they left the last time you were here.
Do you know which direction they went?
- No. But I bet Taimi does. Ask her.
Okay. Let's split up. We'll have more luck finding their trail that way.
- Rox: You bet. What's the plan?
Track down the Aspect Masters. Find their trail and signal if you find it.'
- Braham: What about me?
I need you to stay here, in case they or the Master of Peace come back.
- Kasmeer: How can Marjory and I help?
Meet with Trahearne. Tell him everything we learned at the Priory.
- Marjory: Everything?
Everything. Just don't tell anyone but him about the existance of the egg.
- Rox: I imagine we don't want that to be public knowledge.
No. In the wrong hands, that knowledge could be dangerous.
- Kasmeer: We'll send a bird if we hear anything. You do the same if you get into trouble. We can be with you in the blink of an eye.
Will do. I'm going to talk to Taimi, then it'll be time to head out.
- Braham: She'd never forgive you if you left without saying good-bye. Stay safe, both of you. We'll see you again soon.
- You too.
- Approaching Taimi
- Brun Ingotspitter: Well, paint me orange and call me Rusty. You're getting it.
- Taimi: (gasp) You doubted me!
- Talking to Taimi
- (if asura)
- Hi! Want to meet Brun Ingotspitter? Brun, this is <character name>, an accomplished inventor and scientist who even won the Snaff Prize once. You don't have to talk down to him/her.
Taimi flatters you quite enthusiastically, even when you're not in earshot.
- Brun: That's good to know. It's an honor to meet you, <character name>. I've heard the stories. It surprises me that someone as important as you takes the time for a cub like Taimi.
I could say the same to you. Thank you for helping her.
- Taimi: We've been learning all about heat ratios and metal density. What have you been up to?
I just came to say good-bye. I have to go after the Aspect Masters.
- Oh! After you left, they took a lot of supplies and headed southwest to look for the Master of Peace. They were packed like they weren't coming back any time soon. Why do you need them?
I'm in a hurry. Can you have Braham explain it to you later?
- I definitely will. Soon as they launch the Pact ships, I'm going back to Rata Sum to use all the knowledge I'm soaking up from Brun. I can hardly wait.
- You can tell me about it when I see you. Be careful while I'm gone. 'Bye.
- (if non-asura)
- Hi! Want to meet Brun Ingotspitter? Brun, this is <character name>, one of the most intelligent non-asura I know.
- My little friend says very nice things about you. (same as "Taimi flatters you quite enthusiastically, even when you're not in earshot.")
- Talking to Caithe
- Why are you looking at me like that?
Are you following me?
- No. I'm accompanying you. I plan to go with you to find these Masters. It's a far better use of my time than watching Eir stare at that young norn over there.
*cough* Eir's not staring.
- She wants something from him. Try as she might to hide it, she can't take her eyes off him.
Maybe you should help me and Rox find the Aspect Masters.
- Three humans who are used to flying around on ships are going to leave a trail a mile wide.
What if the ships leave without you?
- Then I won't be going with them. Is that a problem?
- Not for me.
- No reason.
Before talking to Logan
- Speaking with Eir
- Eir Stegalkin: And so it begins.
- Speaking with Caithe
- Caithe: Don't mind me.
- Speaking with Kasmeer
- Logan Thackeray was looking for you.
- Thanks. I'll go talk to him.
- Speaking with Braham
- I've been thinking about Eir. I think maybe I want to spend some time with her. Get to know her better. You know? Eh, she probably wouldn't want to.
- You might be surprised. We'll talk when I get back.
After talking with Logan
- Speaking with Logan again
- I'd like a word with you, if you have a moment to spare.
- (if human)
All right. What's up?
- I wanted to talk to you about Lady Kasmeer. I've been hearing rumors that she may be getting her title back. Jennah...Queen Jennah is considering a pardon for her. Do you know anything about that?
I know that Countess Anise has been a benefactor to Kasmeer and set it up.
- Oh, I see. I had hoped that wasn't the case.
- I don't know what interactions you've had with Countess Anise in the queen's court, but I can tell you with certainty that she never gives anything that doesn't have strings attached.
Kasmeer is practiced at courtly politics.
- Maybe she is, maybe she isn't. I'm telling you this so you can keep your eyes open.
I will. Kas is dear to me.
- That eases my mind. Take care, my friend.
- Good luck, Logan. I'll see you soon.
- commoner or street rat)
Why? I don't understand. (if
- Given your background, I wouldn't expect you to understand, but nobles are complex, political people. I'll say that Countess Anise never does a favor that doesn't have strings attached.
- Is Kasmeer in danger? (same as "Kasmeer is practiced at courtly politics.")
- (if charr)
I got at least one. What's up?
- I was wondering whether you'd had any word on Rytlock. I figure you've probably got contacts in the Citadel, so maybe you'd heard something. I'm worried about him.
Yeah, we all are. He did what he had to do, though.
- I heard Sohothin dropped through the portal. And he just jumped right in after it?
He had to make a split-second decision. He couldn't lose the sword.
- What was he trying to do? Did you really find the Ascalonian crown for him? Did it go with him?
Yes, he had it on him. I found all its pieces, but the ritual didn't work.
- Of course not. For the ritual to be successful, it must be performed by the current Ascalonian ruler.
Well, the Ascalon line is dead.
- Prince Rurik may have had no children, but you're forgetting that all humans come from a single source. Both Krytan and Ascalonian royalty descended from King Doric.
Where are you going with this, Logan?
- Nowhere really. Just thinking aloud and worrying about what trouble Rytlock has gotten himself into. It won't be the same without him here.
If he's not back by the time we both return, we'll go find him.
- I like that plan. Count me in. I'll see you when this is all behind us. Be well and may the gods guide your weapons.
- Oh, human. I'll guide my weapons, thanks. But I wish you success, too.
My pleasure. What can I do for you, old friend?
- I'm intrigued by your visit to Glint's lair. I met her you know?
What was she like?
- She was...brilliant, in all meanings of the word. Beautiful. Enormous, yet gentle. When she spoke, it was in your head, accompanied by the sound of crystalline wind chimes in harmonious tones. She was...
She could speak to you in your head?
- That was her gift. It was she came to know what love is, and to love humans herself. She could hear our thoughts. No other dragon has ever exhibited this ability connect with us in that way.
She protected humans?
- And others, too. Many times throughout the centuries. That's why she died. She tried to kill her maker, Kralkatorrik. It killed her instead. She was no match for it, despite being ancient.
What a terrible loss.
- It's a loss I carry closely. But I should let you go. Please be careful. I wish you success with your mission.
- I wish the same for you. Good-bye for now.
- Speaking with Eir
- Greetings, old friend. I'm sorry you have this mission that's taking you away. You'll be sorely missed.
Logan says you've been quiet lately.
- I suppose I have. I just can't stop watching Braham, thinking about him. I think maybe it's time I made things right with him.
- It's not too late.
Eir, Glint's lair is wondrous.
- It's glorious, isn't it? A work of art made from the magic of her being. I'll never forget the last time I was there. It was the day she died.
Will you tell me about it?
- It's been many years. I was there with Zojja, Snaff, Logan, Rytlock, and Caithe. We'd been traveling through the desert, looking for her. We planned to kill her so she wouldn't raise Kralkatorrik.
But you didn't kill her.
- No. We had misjudged her. She became our ally and died helping us. I remember the first words she ever said to us: "At your peril do you wake a dragon!" The memory still sends shivers down my spine.
- Not exactly. She spoke to us with her mind. That was her gift and the reason she loved Tyrians. She could read our minds. She knew our goodness.
What was she like?
- Ancient, wise, powerful. She had the gift of prophecy and the burden of three thousand years of memories. She warned us about dragons taking over the world. They feast, she said, on all life.
What if she had offspring? Would it also be our ally?
- There's no way to know. It depends, I suppose, on who raises it. There's an old human legend that says she had a hatchling hundreds of years ago. Some humans found it and protected it.
Is it still alive?
- Unlikely, I think. Gleam—that's what the bards call it—hasn't been seen, and we have no proof the stories are even true. They live so long, it's possible we won't see it in our lifetime.
But now there's an unhatched egg. I have to find it.
- That's a good reason to leave this fight to us. If it's true, and there is an egg, then you must find it before it falls into the wrong hands.
- I'm leaving now. I'll find it. Take care, my friend.
- Thanks for saying so.
- Speaking with Zojja
- It does my old engine good to see you, I've been observing Taimi. She's becoming an impressive young mind, wouldn't you say?
- (if asura)
Quite. Your influence on her is evident.
- Perhaps. Though I suspect she takes more from you than from me. Sometimes I think she merely sees me as someone to rebel against.
She's young. Give her time. She needs seasoning.
- I'm fond of her, you know? It may not show. I'm not the type to be effusive. But I wanted you to know. I do care about her.
I understand. I think she'd like to hear it, too.
- Bah! First, you're affectionate with a student, and the next thing you know, they're releasing mini-golems to ravage your living quarters. But...one day perhaps. One day.
- One day soon, I hope.
Some days I think she's smarter than all of us put together.
- You're a better influence on her than I predicted.
I'll take that as a compliment.
- I confess that I'm fond her. She reminds me of myself when I was her age, though I had parents to guide me. She has my curiosity and stubbornness, though.
- Yes, I can see the resemblance.
You've never had much faith in me.
- That's not true. I have a great deal of faith in you when it comes to doing <Character Race> things. But she's an asura. I wouldn't expect anyone except another asura to be able to connect with her.
- I'm glad I could prove you wrong.
- Speaking with Rox before speaking to Marjory
- Rox: I'm glad you're back.
After speaking with Marjory
- Speaking with Marjory again but before speaking with Kasmeer
- I'll arrange a meeting with Marshal Trahearne to fill him in on what we learned.
Remember. Tell him only about the egg. It has to stay a secret.
- I understand. If the wrong people heard, they'd go after it themselves. I'll warn the marshal as well.
Thank you. Is there something else?
- Kasmeer keeps watching you out of the corner of her eye. It means she wants to talk to you, but she doesn't want to be a bother.
- Thanks for letting me know.
- Talking to Kasmeer
- I've never seen Marjory work so hard. She's determined to get good with that sword. It's both impressive and worrisome. She says she intends to kill Mordremoth with it. She wants to go with the Pact.
No way. I need her to help figure out my vision.
- If you tell her that, I know she'll stay and help you.
- I'll talk to her.
She does? I suppose if that's what she wants, she should do it.
- What about your vision? The egg?
- I'll talk to her.
- Speaking with Marjory again after speaking with Kasmeer
- Has Kasmeer been tattling on me?
Praising you. She told me how hard you're working at sword techniques.
- It gives me something to take my mind off Mordremoth. I'm not sleeping well, and I can't sit still for long. All I can think about is driving that sword into Mordremoth's heart.
You're not the only one who wants the dragon dead, but we have to be smart.
- Smart how? I'm improving with my sword, but it's taking time. It doesn't come naturally to me. I'm a necromancer.
Don't miss the forest for the trees. There's a bigger picture. The egg.
- All I can see is death. I don't understand why you think it's so important to go after this egg. The Master of Peace is probably already dead.
The egg could be the key to saving Tyria. It's important. The Pale Tree—
- Wouldn't have shown it to you if it weren't important. I'm with you, boss. I am. Don't worry. I'm not going with the Pact. Just know that when we finally face Mordremoth, I'll be at your side.
You're my rock, Jory. You keep the others sane and safe.
- Thanks. I needed to hear that. I'd die for you. You know that, right?
- No one's dying anytime soon, okay? I'll see you later.
- Speaking with Braham
- You'll be careful, right? I mean when you go after the Masters. We don't know bas it is out there. Only that it's worse than here.
- I'll be careful. I promise. See you when I get back.
- Speaking with Rox
- I'm ready to head out whenever you are.
- Great to know. Thanks.
After talking with Caithe
- Speaking with Caithe again
- Caithe: Ready when you are, boss.
- Speaking with Vigil Warmaster Wylliam
- (sigh) I only just got this sword, and it already has a knick [sic]in it. A knick[sic]. How could it possibly hurt Mordremoth?
- Weapons amount to little when compared to wits. (if asura)
- If your sword fails, I'll give you mine. (if charr or norn)
- It's not our weapons that will kill Mordremoth, but our collective efforts. (if sylvari or human)
- Speaking with Trahearne
- How's your mission going? Have you made any progress on it? I'd love to hear that you're ready to embark with us when we go after Mordremoth.
I still have much to do.
- I understand. All I ask is that you come back to us in one piece. If there's anything you need, don't hesitate to ask. I owe you one for finding Caithe and Canach.
- Thanks. I'll remember that.
- Speaking with Crusader Eilye Jeyne
- Hello, Commander. I'd heard you were adventuring in the area, rescuing people and saving lives. It's good to see you again.
Those rumors are exaggerated.
- I doubt it. If you stick around, I'll be seeing you. I'm assigned to keeping Camp Resolve running while the fleet is gone. We have to make sure they have a safe spot to come back to.
- You're a good choice for that. Good luck. I'll see you later.
- Speaking with Taimi
- Taimi: Deep in thought here. Don't distract me.
- Speaking with Brun Ingotspitter
- Look, I can't take on any more students.
- Not a problem.
- Speaking with Demolitionist Strixel
- And kaboom! There you are, my friend. I haven't seen you in a dolyak's age. Where've you been keeping yourself?
Busy fighting evil. You?
- The Pact keeps me plenty busy blowing things up. I've got a very special fireworks show planned for Mordremoth. It's gonna light up the sky.
- That sounds amazing. I'm sure it'll be effective. See you later.
- Speaking with Centurion Bloodspatter
- We're going to destroy this dragon. I know it. We've lost too many good soldiers against these plants. Only right to honor them by crushing Mordremoth.
- For the legions! (if charr)
- I'll see you on the field.
- Speaking with Peacemaker Chief Torr
- I'm not the only one drawing comparisons between our rations and laundry, you know. It's not often soup tastes like socks.
- Interesting hypothesis. (if asura)
- Don't be so dramatic. (if charr)
- For all your intelligence, you asura sure lack subtlety. (otherwise)
- Speaking with Valiant Eleri
- I can feel it—the restlessness everyone's trying so hard to hide. It's contagious. I wish I could ease their minds. We're going to win this, after all.
- With confidence like that, we can't lose.
- Speaking with Tonna
- Never thought I'd miss Hoelbrak this much. We all have to leave home to make our legends, but...there's something to be said for a warm hearth and fresh bed.
- Legends are made in many ways, in many places. (if norn)
- Everyone's thoughts eventually return to home. (if non-norn)
- Speaking with Canach after speaking with Marjory
- You look like you're heading out. Where are you going?
I'm not sure that's any of your business.
- Suit yourself. I'll just ask that little asura girl after you're gone. She likes me.
You're delusional. Leave her alone. I'm trekking into the wastes.
- You saw what it's like out there. It'll get worse the farther you go. You must have a damn good reason. Like...a dragon egg, maybe?
- Again, none of your business. Nor Countess Anise's. Give her my regards.
She's smarter that ten of you, Canach. Engage with her at your own peril.
- Look, I overheard the others talking about the dragon egg. You're going to destroy it, right? For all our sakes.
- All I know is that if you tell anyone what you heard, I'll destroy you.
- Conversation between Taimi and Brun, in random order, after talking to Caithe
- Brun Ingotspitter: When you break it down into its component parts, it's—
- Taimi: Simple! It's simple!
- Taimi: No, you must be wrong. That could never work that way.
- Brun Ingotspitter: Look. What do you see here?
- Taimi: Oh. I hadn't considered that.
- Taimi: When we're done, do you think I could be an honorary member of the Iron Legion?
- Brun Ingotspitter: Only if you grow an extra pair of ears.
- Taimi: Hm. Okay. I'll get right on that.
- Taimi: I did all my homework, and I have a list of questions to ask you.
- Brun Ingotspitter: (laugh) You undersold yourself when you said you were earnest.
- Cyclic conversation between two norn Hunters
- Hunter (1): I asked Eir if she'd join us at the campfire tonight.
- Hunter (2): Is she coming?
- Hunter (1): She'll be there. She said she would.
- Hunter (2): I can't wait!
- Hunter (1): That sylvari, Scarlet or whatever, did something to Mordremoth.
- Hunter (2): She was crazy. I've never trusted sylvari. That just confirmed it for me.
- Hunter (1): You don't trust anyone.
- Hunter (1): Maybe we could help the charr with construction.
- Hunter (2): You don't know anything about building with metal.
- Hunter (1): How different can it be from wood?
- Hunter (1): I bet when Jormag falls, it'll shatter into a thousand pieces of ice.
- Hunter (2): I'd give anything to be there when that happens.
- Cyclic conversation between two asura Peacemakers
- Peacemaker (1): So, there I was...
- Peacemaker (2): I already heard this one.
- Peacemaker (1): How do you know? I haven't even...
- Peacemaker (2): I heard them all. Twice.
- Peacemaker (1): What do you think it's going to be like? Do you think it can fly?
- Peacemaker (2): How should I know? Just be ready for anything.
- Peacemaker (1): Phlunt wants me to spy on Zojja for him. What am I? His flunky?
- Peacemaker (2): Phlunt's flunky. Heh. What'd you tell him?
- Peacemaker (1): I lied and said I would. He's too much of a coward to come with us. He'll never know.
- Peacemaker (1): Destiny's Edge, huh? They're a part of history, you know? In ways most of us will never be.
- Peacemaker (2): Don't undersell yourself. We're going to fight a dragon. With any luck, you'll get your chance. Or die trying.
- Peacemaker (1): Do you think they'll have enough water on the ship?
- Peacemaker (2): Of course. Why?
- Peacemaker (1): I'm thirsty all the time out here. If I were Mordremoth, I wouldn't be going after magic. I'd soak up all the water.
- Cyclic conversation between three charr Soldiers
- Soldier (1): I keep getting sand in my mouth. I hate getting sand in my mouth.
- Soldier (2): Just try not to swallow it.
- Soldier (1): I like the heat.
- Soldier (2): Yeah? I could see us building a citadel out here. After we junk Mordremoth, that is.
- Soldier (1): You and me could be tribunes and run the place.
- Soldier (2): You could be a tribune. I'd be the imperator.
- Soldier (1): I think the heat is making him stupid.
- Soldier (2): Nah. He was always that way.
- Cyclic conversation between two sylvari Valiants
- Valiant (1): There's been no change in the Mother Tree's condition.
- Valiant (2): That means she hasn't gotten any worse. Take comfort in that.
- Valiant (1): My calling is thunderous. This is where I'm meant to be.
- Valiant (2): All I can think about is Mordremoth.
- Cyclic conversation between four human Seraphs
- Seraph (1): I got a mail from my children. They're with their grandparents while I'm here.
- Seraph (2): Let's hope you can get back to them soon.
- Seraph (1): I heard we're getting a tour of the ship tomorrow.
- Seraph (2): I can't wait to go aboard.
- Seraph (1): I wish I'd brought a card deck or something.
- Seraph (2): I'm not in the mood for games.
- Seraph (1): Do you realize? We're part of something big here. Monumental.
- Seraph (2): Yeah, I just wish I could get a good night's sleep. The wind here is so loud.
- Seraph (1): I tried to convince Captain Thackeray to introduce me to Eir Stegalkin. He said I couldn't handle her.
- Seraph (2): (laugh) She's way out of your league.
- Seraph (3): A norn would never go out with you. It'd be like a wolf dating a praying mantis.
- Seraph (1): Ouch. You wound me.
- Cyclic quotes by Vigil Healer
- Vigil Healer: It's above my rank to decide which ship goes without a healer. If only we hadn't lost one.
- Vigil Healer: I better not smell even a whiff of laziness on that runt, or I'll...
- Approaching the north-western gate
- Vigil Crusader: Commander, we've been training hard.
