Before the event
Sheriff Fiercefang: What's all this? Nobody goes south by land anymore.
Caravan Guard: Exactly. We'll make a fortune without all the competition. Will you provide safe passage.
Sheriff Fiercefang: Not a chance. I'm not losing any more lives in that swamp.
Caravan Guard: (sigh) Very well, then. It's not the first time I've been disappointed by the Lionguard.
Merchant: What's HIS problem, anyway? Isn't the protection of merchants the whole point of the Lionguard?
Caravan Guard: Don't worry about him. He's just another soldier that'll find an excuse to get out of duty.
Merchant: This looks a little dangerous.
Merchant: It's just a little bit of water. I don't even see any drakes!
Merchant: My uncle used to trade with hylek just south of here. Alchemical geniuses, he called them.
Merchant: I hope you brought something other than gold to trade with. I hear hylek don't have much use or regard for it.
Merchant: Your uncle, did he ever mention anything about pirates?
Merchant: Yes, actually. "Bloodthirty cutthroats," he used to say, "take ya prisoner and sell ya into slavery!" Why do you ask?
Caravan Guard: What is it now?
Merchant: Up ahead, sir. I don't think they're going to let us pass.
Caravan Guard: Nonsense! I'll just go have a word with them.
During event
Merchant: I'm hurt! Someone, help me!
Merchant: Protect me!
After the event [verification requested]
Caravan Guard: Pirate ambush...horrible... Please save the merchants!
Sheriff Fiercefang: That's pitiful. I warned you about going south. Find someone else to pay for your mistakes.
Caravan Guard: I can't believe this!
