Ambient dialogue[edit]

In Farisan Village
Nervous Villager: All of those Zaishen showed up so suddenly. What's going on?
Angry Villager: Oh! I'll tell you what's going on! They sold us all out to their damn god, and now they've got cold feet.
Angry Villager: And they're going to bring all the fury of the Forged down on our heads in the process!
Nervous Villager: Oh no. We've...we've gotta get out of here while we still can.
Zekir: I heard from one of the others who went to the edge and confirmed it. We're really just floating in the sky now.[verification requested]
Jaliyah: Then our days are numbered. The Forged will bear down on us soon enough.
Zekir: Is it really that bad? We've survived to this point.
Jaliyah: But now we have nowhere to run. We're trapped up here, and the Forged know it. The gods have abandoned us to our fate.
Zekir: Maybe this is when the commander will finally return to save us.
Jaliyah: The commander left us to die. I'd rather face the Forged alone.
Zaishen Acolyte (1): What do you think that place even is?
Zaishen Acolyte (2): I don't know. The walls are higher than anything I've ever seen.
Zaishen Acolyte (1): Maybe the gods built a new city—a place Balthazar couldn't reach.
Zaishen Acolyte (2): I don't suppose they'll want to let us in, then.
Herald of Joko: Fear not, people of Elona! While times are dark, and our true master has yet remained hidden, salvation is coming!
Herald of Joko: The great and illustrious Palawa Joko would not abandon his children to this false god! He will return! He must!
Herald of Joko: The time will soon be at hand! Do not be led astray by false promises! Only Joko can offer us true freedom from death!
In Balkor's Camp
Researcher Brinna: Astounding! I haven't seen raw magic manifest like this in a long time. What do you suppose is behind it?
Elder Vasim: The land is unwell. Ravaged by Balthazar, and now torn from its proper place by this incursion. It is bleeding.
Researcher Brinna: Wow, I'd never thought of it that way. But then what will happen with all of it uncontained like this?
Elder Vasim: Like predators to a wounded animal, the Kryptis will be drawn to the lifeblood of this land. This magic must be purged.
Researcher Brinna: We'll have to get a cleanup crew out here immediately then. We've got enough Kryptis to deal with already.
