Shiverpeak Mountains


With norn characters (and some more currently unknown conditions)
Looking good, <Character name>. I heard you shamed all the other hunters at the Great Hunt. My gold was on you, I can tell you.
Talk more option tango.png You bet on me?
Sure as Wolf's teeth are sharp, I did. And I won a good heft of weight for my pouch. I owe you my thanks. One of these days, I'll find a way to pay you back.
Talk end option tango.png Enjoy your winnings.
Talk end option tango.png That's nice.
With norn characters (finished part one of the norn specific storyline)
You realized that the Sons of Svanir have their sights on you. What a victory if they could turn you to their cause.
Talk more option tango.png Over my dead body.
(laugh) With the corruption, they may take your dead body as a consolation prize.
Talk end option tango.png You have a point. Farewell.
With characters from other races
I assume you've been warned about the Sons of Svanir. They blend far too well among more trustworthy hunters.
Talk more option tango.png I've heard of them. Are they really that dangerous?
Not if you stay in Hoelbrak. But if you wander beyond the protection here, you're risking your life. The Svanir attack travelers on the roads, especially strangers.
Talk end option tango.png I'll take your warning to heart. Thank you.
With characters from the Order of Whispers
I assume you've been warned about the Sons of Svanir. They blend far too well among other hunters. Don't trust the untrustworthy.
Talk more option tango.png I know better then to befriend the unfriendly.
(laugh) Well said. The Order of Whispers has trained you well. What brings you to Hoelbrak? I heard you've been making waves in the world.
Talk more option tango.png Hoelbrak has much to offer. What's happening in this region?
Darkness is descending on the Shiverpeaks. We've got dredge rising up from below us, and the dragon's corruption spreading through the valleys. Even the kodan have landed to escape Jormag's minions.
Talk more option tango.png Who are the kodan?
They came from the far north, where they live on great floating ice citadels. They are favored by Bear and resemble her in body and in wisdom.
Talk more option tango.png It's the same everywhere, then.
That's the news I'm hearing from other agents who come through here. Nowhere is safe anymore.
Talk end option tango.png Then we'll just have to fight harder. Farewell.
Talk end option tango.png I see. Interesting.
Talk end option tango.png I'd better get back to it then. Farewell.
Talk end option tango.png News travels fast. So do I. Farewell.
Talk end option tango.png Okay, Tarkad. I'm going now.
