Ambient dialogue[edit]

Outside the bone wall
Farmer Bunti: The citizens of the Bonestrand are experiencing a rise in suspicious activity lately. Can you help?
Farmer Bunti waves at <Character name>.
At the Village of Purity
Villager (1): Did you hear we lost another villager last night? They're being all secretive about it, but I heard it was poison.
Villager (2): Who'd you hear that from? I'm the only person who'll talk to you.
Villager (1): Very funny. I'm serious, though. What if it's true? Someone has to do something!
Villager (1): Can you believe these kids talking about taking their chances north of the wall?
Villager (2): Yep. They’re out of their minds. What are they going to do, eat sand and make friends with giants?
Villager (1): I know, it’s ridiculous. I hope they come to their senses before something bad happens.
Villager (1): Rebels? Just a bunch of ignorant kids. Don’t they realize they’re attacking our only connection to King Joko’s empire?
Villager (2): Young and stupid, that’s what they are. I hope her father can talk some sense into her.
Villager (1): Let’s hope so. Somebody needs to put a stop to this foolishness.
Villager (1): You know, this town is such an oppressive dump nowadays. Maybe Zuri’s right. We should join the rebels.
Villager (2): Ha! You? I doubt they’d even want you!
Villager (1): Hey! I have some skills. I could help in some way or other. Probably.
Villager (2): Oh, please. Last time you tried to butcher dinner, we ended up with vegetable soup, and you ended up with a pet chicken.
Villager (1): Do either of you ever just feel like leaving Purity?
Villager (2): Watch what you say. The wrong people hear that kind of talk, they’ll think you’re affiliated with you-know-who.
Villager (3): Yes, careful. This place may be falling apart, but you don’t want to risk exile.
Villager (1): Have you seen my boy? He went to help in the fields, but then he never came home. I'm starting to worry.
Villager (2): He's probably fine. You know how teenagers are, always testing the boundaries.
Villager (1): Could be. He's just never done anything like this before.
Villager (1): Still no luck finding your boy?
Villager (2): No, he hasn't turned up. It's not like him.
Villager (1): Don't worry too much—sometimes young men just need to get out and do their own thing. They usually come back.
Villager (2): That's not very reassuring. Let me know if you hear anything.
Villager (1): My son hasn't come by here, has he?
Villager (2): Sorry, can't say that he has.
Villager (1): Well, if you see him, tell him he needs to come home!
Villager (1): Something's just not right. We get cut off by the war and suddenly our leaders lock themselves in their palace?
Villager (2): Well, the vizier was never very friendly...but yeah, things have changed.
Villager (1): For the worse! Food's running low, people are missing... it can't be a coincidence.
Villager (3): Wait, you think... No they wouldn't do that. Would they?
Villager (1): The war's been especially tough on this place. It's getting harder to ignore it.
Villager (2): You're right my idiot cousin made an attempt at the wall. the other day. Now he's idiot drake food. People are desperate.
Villager (3): Desperate and afraid. And rightly so. It's been nothing but hardship for way too long.
Villager (1): At least we still have each other.
Villager (2): Yeah, sure. Until one of us makes a run for it and joins my cousin in the belly of that drake.
Villager (1): I hear someone spotted some kind of Forged beast out east. Do you think the war will reach us here?
Villager (2): Let's hope not. The garrison was established during peacetime. I'm not sure they're prepared to handle the Forged.
Villager (1): You're right. No way they could handle a full-on assault by Balthazar.
Villager (1): What do you think it's like over there?
Villager (2): Hard, I imagine. But they're all criminals, so I suppose it's fitting.
Villager (1): True, but what if you kept going north, what do you think is past that?
Villager (1): With all these rumors of rebellion, it’s only a matter of time before the vizier and the clanmarshal crack down.
Villager (2): Really? They're already exiling people. What else can they do?
Villager (1): Kill them. Think about it. Less unrest, more Awakened...
Villager (1): That's... No... That’s unthinkable. They wouldn’t do that. Would they?
Villager (1): Poor guy. That kid probably ran off with his girlfriend to join the rebels.
Villager (2): Or worse, they might've attempted the Bone Wall.
Villager (1): (sigh) I hope not. If they were that foolish, we'll be seeing them again soon. As Awakened.
Villager (1): A few rough months and people are ready to cut and run. Typical.
Villager (2): I hear you. It's like they've completely forgotten all those years of safety and prosperity we had before this.
Villager (1): Absolutely. King Joko will return, and all this will pass.
Villager (2): Exactly. War isn't easy. We just have to get through it.
Villager (1): ???[verification requested]
Villager (2): Definitely! He'd crush the Forged, same as he did with the Margonites. It'd be outstanding.
Kennelmaster Jalil: Hey! Thanks for all your help around here. Things aren't perfect, but they've definitely improved.
Near the Bounty Board
Order of Shadows Agent: Reports of creatures driven insane by ley energy are coming from all over. Are you going to help?
Order of Shadows Agent: Seeking adventure? Fame? Reward? Take a look at our bounty contracts!
Order of Shadows Agent: A new bounty has been posted! Go look at the bounty boards.
Order of Shadows Agent: Take the bounty on the drake Muckstalker. Ley magic has turned him vicious.
Order of Shadows Agent: That turncoat Zawadi has been snitching to the vizier. Teach her a lesson.
Order of Shadows Agent: Who will claim the bounty on the Awakened abhorrence?
Order of Shadows Agent: An oversized choya wild with ley magic? We can't have that wandering around, can we?
Order of Shadows Agent: Want to take down a legendary bounty? You'll find the Awakened hoarder in a mausoleum.
