Ambient dialogue[edit]

At the tents
Order of Shadows Agent (1): We've been fighting the Awakened for so long, I never thought I'd be rooting for them.
Order of Shadows Agent (2): Suddenly they don't seem like such a threat, compared to the Forged.
Order of Shadows Agent (1): When I joined, the idea of "guarding the Mouth of Torment" seemed so abstract.
Order of Shadows Agent (2): We're certainly living in interesting times.
Order of Shadows Agent (3): The Awakened battle lines are being pushed farther and farther back toward the Bone Palace.
Order of Shadows Agent (3): If it's overrun, Vabbi will likely follow.
Order of Shadows Agent (3): I never thought I'd say this, but I wish Joko were around.
Order of Shadows Agent (4): Without him to lead the army, it's only a matter of time.
Order of Shadows Agent (3): Any idea where he is?
Order of Shadows Agent (4): Nothing concrete. He hasn't been seen in quite some time.
Order of Shadows Agent (3): In hiding?
Order of Shadows Agent (4): Not really his style, but I find it hard to believe that he's dead either. Well, dead for real, that is.
Order of Shadows Agent (4): Send a couple of agents to Vehjin Palace. Let's see what they can uncover.
Order of Shadows Agent (5): I get so nervous when he's around.
Order of Shadows Agent (6): Kossan? Don't be silly. He's very friendly and down to earth.
Order of Shadows Agent (5): I heard he killed a Mordant Crescent single-handlely. And he broke into Joko's palace...
Order of Shadows Agent (6): Just go talk to him. He's modest, but if you get him going he'll tell you some good stories.
Order of Shadows Agent (7): Ugh. Does it ever get better?
Order of Shadows Agent (8): The sulfur? I barely notice it anymore. You must be new here.
Order of Shadows Agent (7): Just hit three weeks.
Order of Shadows Agent (9): Where're you from?
Order of Shadows Agent (7): North, beyond the wall. Joko exiled my family when I was little.
Order of Shadows Agent (8): So, what? You joined the order for revenge?
Order of Shadows Agent (7): I guess... Somehow I hadn't imagined that revenge would involve fighting metal monsters.
Order of Shadows Agent (9): None of us did.
Order of Shadows Agent (1): It's getting worse. We need more help.
Order of Shadows Agent (2): There's no one else the Order can trust. We're it.
Order of Shadows Agent (1): What about Whispers in Central Tyria?
Order of Shadows Agent (2): They already abandoned Elona once. Why would we trust them now?
Order of Shadows Agent (2): For all we know, their dragon hunting is what caused this.
Order of Shadows Agent (1): So maybe they're not the most trustworthy, but what else can we do?
Order of Shadows Agent (2): What we always do. We stick together.
Redeemer Kossan: Keeper Pamir, I fear the Forged may be onto the Order of Shadows.
Keeper Pamir: What makes you say that?
Redeemer Kossan: Our forward agents around Ruptured Heart are being hunted. Amil and Shaza were were caught off guard.
Keeper Pamir: That's unfortunate. We are woefully outnumbered. We'll have to be more vigilant.
Redeemer Kossan: I'll tell the other agents to cover their tracks better.
Keeper Pamir: There's a battle brewing between the Forged, Awakened, and Branded.
Redeemer Kossan: Yes, the tension grows each day. We can prepare, but the Order of Shadows is few in number.
Keeper Pamir: Our best option is to let them fight it out, then strike the victor.
Redeemer Kossan: I still believe we can restore Elona to its former glory.
Keeper Pamir: Keep hold of that belief. You'll need it in the coming days.
Keeper Pamir: There's one more thing I need from you, once we get control from the aftermath of the Awakened, Forged, and Branded.
Keeper Pamir: Elona will need a hero to unite them. Elona needs you to be that hero, Kossan.
Redeemer Kossan: That is quite a weight to carry. But Elona calls, and my family has a long history of answering that call.
Keeper Pamir: The Order of Shadows and the people of Elona will be with you. Remember the motto of the Sunspears.
Redeemer Kossan: You never fight alone.
Hamaseen Trader: Ahai there!
Order of Shadows Agent: Can I help you?
Hamaseen Trader: I've brought a number of trade contracts. Very lucrative deals, I'll have you know.
Hamaseen Trader: Come have a look. Sign on the line, and it could make us both very rich.
Order of Shadows Agent: Forged and Awakened are everywhere ahead. Only the Hamaseen are bold enough to trade here.
Hamaseen Trader: So anyone bold enough to bribe their way in will have almost no competition for contracts...
Order of Shadows Agent: Your trade contracts will be worthless when you're dead.
At the watching outposts, outside of The Ruptured Heart
Watcher Bosede: It's getting harder and harder to stem the tide of Forged.
Demolitionist Sola: Tell me about it. But we have to persevere. If Kossan was here, he wouldn't give in.
Watcher Bosede: Did you know he's back at the watch now?
Demolitionist Sola: That's great news. We could use all the help we can get.
Watcher Bosede: And with the Commander here, the tide is really turning in our favor.
Watcher Akuchi: No telling when the next portal will open up. Are you ready?
Demolitionist Afia: We're always ready.
Watcher Akuchi: I'll try to gather you as much help as I can.
Demolitionist Afia: No rest for the weary. We need to prepare more spikes for when they return.
At the Bounty Board
Order of Shadows Agent: Check out the new contracts on the bounty board.
Order of Shadows Agent: Wicked, ley-enhanced creatures are roaming the desert. What are you going to do about it?
Order of Shadows Agent: A new bounty is up. Do you have what it takes?
Order of Shadows Agent: A Forged lieutenant deserted its unit. Take it out.
Order of Shadows Agent: There's a new bounty for the junundu wurm Sulfurscale.
Order of Shadows Agent: Thrash Tailclobber! It' a stupid name for a devourer anyway! Take the bounty and have fun!
Order of Shadows Agent: The hydra Xadd Honn Tarr is infused with ley energy. Track it down before it gets stronger.
Order of Shadows Agent: We have reports of a fiend called a Forged proliferator. A bounty's been posted. Who's in?
Order of Shadows Agent: Contract out for a legendary Forged rampager! Anyone who can fight, take up arms. If you can't fight, try anyway.
