Ambient dialogue[edit]

Whispers Creator: Whole platoon of heathens. Inconsiderate. Rude. Coldhearted bastards...
Whispers Creator: Hardly a swallow left. Sun wasn't even up.
Whispers Creator: Were they raised by ettins? Who drinks it all and doesn't make a new pot?!
Whispers Creator: Courage runs of caffeine, people!
Ash Legion Scout: Gloria, you've got to eat something. Just a little bit? For me?
Ash Legion Scout: We didn't come all this way just to give up now, girl. Please...
Ash Legion Scout: Don't leave.
Gorrik: Inventories... I'm good at inventories. Numbers. Logic. Cheering up soldiers... Agh—Commander, you can do that, right?
Gorrik: Numbers. Numbers are controllable. Quantities of oil. Battalions of soldiers. Minutes left until...until...
Gorrik: It's so frustrating to calculate probabilities for improbable, uncontrollable, ancient forces! Nyeh! Let me try again...
Gorrik: Running a barracks can't be that different from symbolic problems in abstract dynamics.
Gorrik: I mean, I know it's different. But how different could it be?
Gorrik: Don't mind me. I'll just stand here. Doing all the work.
Gorrik: This would be so much easier if they just. Stopped. Getting. Injured!
Gorrik: There are too many things to do and not enough hours to do them in! The math just doesn't work! Can you assist me?
Irwen: Scouting report's ready, Commander. Whenever you want it.
Irwen: Got some information if you want it, Commander.
Irwen: Do you need my report?
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: Hope the captain doesn't catch me crying...
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: No hope. Not for any of us.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: I should've just stayed in my bunk today.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: Always thought I'd die at sea.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: This is bad. This is really bad.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: I'm gonna miss it, you know. Being alive.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: Just gotta breathe. Just keep breathing.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: This isn't a warband—it's a buffet.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: So this is how the world ends...
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: Dead or Branded... Which is worse?
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: This is it, isn't it? This is where it all ends.
Pact Soldier [Discouraged]: (growls)
Vigil Marksman: (laughs)
Vigil Marksman: With spears!
Vigil Marksman: (manic giggles that devolve into sobs)
Pact Nurse: If only I had more hands...
Pact Nurse: I need bandages, sutures, and medicine assembled into med kits. Anyone?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: Got any water?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: Any water elementals I could kill for a drink?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: Anyone got a drink?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: Got a drink for a dried up husk?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: Booze? Water? Booze?
Thirsty Pact Soldier: All this ice around us, and no drinking water...'
Thirsty Pact Soldier: If I had water...I could tell beautiful you are...
Vigil Warmaster: Shocked to see you highborns join us grunts. How're you liking the fancy accommodations? Beds cushy enough for ya?
Vigil Recruit: Quite honestly, I can't complain.
Vigil Warmaster: Oh, really? Rowdy roughnecks and unwashed peasants are better than down pillows and servants?
Vigil Recruit: It's an honor to serve the Pact. Besides, it's too quiet at home now that everyone's dead.
Vigil Recruit: My dearest Heba. I found the flower bracelet you hid in my rucksack. I wore it the entire march north.
Vigil Recruit: I think it will bring me luck tomorrow... No. I shouldn't say that. What if I die? She'll think it's her fault.
Vigil Recruit: Be good. Be brave. Say your prayers. And listen to Uncle Zahi.
Vigil Recruit: See yo– Remember that Mommy loves you very much. Always and forever.
In the pit
Canach: Oh, hello there, Commander. Gambling is legal in Elona, you know.
Canach: Care to guess the outcome, Commander?
Canach: All proceeds from this tournament will go towards the war effort. Well...MOST of the proceeds.
Canach: This is better than the casino in Amnoon. Here, I'm the house.
Canach: Step up! Step up! Place your bets!
Canach: Team Furball? Or Team No Fun at Parties? Only one way to tell!
Tournament Organizer: Have at it!
Tournament Organizer: And...fight!
Rytlock Brimstone: Heh. This'll be over REAL quick.
Logan Thackeray: Wouldn't be so sure if I were you.
Logan Thackeray: Good luck to the both of us, old friend!
Rytlock Brimstone: My soldiers will eat yours alive.
Rytlock Brimstone: You're gonna lose. You can count on that.
Logan Thackeray: Yeah? At least I CAN count!
Rytlock Brimstone: (chuckles) Hey, you're learning.
Canach: And the winner: Team Furball!
Rytlock Brimstone: That's right.
Canach: Your champions: The Furballs!
Rytlock Brimstone: (grunts)
Canach: And the winner: Team No Fun at Parties!
Logan Thackeray: Who came up with those names?
Tournament Organizer: (Snrk.)
Canach: Your champions: No Fun at Parties!
Logan Thackeray: Excuse me. I'm extremely fun.
At the Grand Lyceum, an irritated soldier pursuing an infatuated spider
Whispers Initiate: I will end you.
Whispers Initiate: The ground take your blood!
Whispers Initiate: Your time will come.
At the Deldrimor Cellars
Vigil Recruit (1): The greatest threat the world has ever known approaches, and we're guarding barrels.
Vigil Recruit (2): Uh... Yeah. About that. I might not have heard the sarge perfectly...
Vigil Recruit (2): What?! She could crush me just by breathing on me! I wasn't about to ask her to repeat herself.
Vigil Recruit (1): If we end up on latrine duty, I'm pushing you in.
Upon offering aid in the form of water to thirsty soldiers
Vigil Marksman: It's not booze, but...I'll take it.
Vigil Tactician: Thanks for that, Commander.
Vigil Marksman: Aw, thanks. Don't suppose you're packing any lunches in that bag, are you?
Vigil Marksman: Oh, just in time!
Vigil Tactician: Thanks for that, Commander.
Vigil Marksman: Ahhh.
