Ambient dialogue[edit]

Kristyna Sohnstag: Someone listen! An unnatural danger threatens us!
Kristyna Sohnstag: Take heed! I haven't taken leave of my sense. I've seen creatures of metal and steam!
Sonja Denrota: This reminds me of the time when I single-handedly killed a dozen dredge after stumbling into one of their camps.
Local: Everything reminds you of that.
Explorer: Hmm. Where should I go next?
Elder: West. We get plenty of charr coming through here. Let's send some traffic the other way.
Explorer: I could do that.
Sonja Denrota: Ah! A challenger worthy of crossing blades with me!
Elisabet Kardijn: Are your hunts dissatisfying? The Vigil will take your prowess and reforge you into a weapon against the Elder Dragons.
Elisabet Kardijn: The Vigil call! Join us, and fight beside Jhavi Jorasdottir herself.
Lady Sarah Marduke: How disappointing. I wanted pottery, not hand-woven mats.
Lady Sarah Marduke: Ah, now this is a fine specimen. Yes, this will go quite well in my study, next to the Orrian music stand.
Samuel Cuttler: We all walk in the light of the Six. Heed my words and be blessed as never before.
Samuel Cuttler: My northern friends! Fill your ears with the glory and grace of the Six True Gods.
Maewin Tamhedt: Ahhhh. Nothing better in the morning than snow between your toes.
Barkeeper: I like going barefoot as much as anyone, but she's gonna lose her toes if she keeps that up.
Local: A life without hunting? The horror!
Maewin Tamhedt: When I see that mongrel Kjell again, I won't be responsible for what I do to him.
Maewin Tamhedt: I'll break your bones and laugh doing it!
Maewin Tamhedt: I'm done here.
Kjell the Artisan: Bah! I have no respect for you or your so-called talent. Begone, before I lose my patience.
Kjell the Artisan: (huff) She got exactly what she deserved. She's a liar, and I won't speak of her anymore.
Kjell the Artisan: I hate the Svanir cultists, but sometimes they make sense.
Local: Ridiculous. They'll destroy us if we let them.
Local (1): Set a fire, and the grawl will all come running out.
Local (2): Did I tell you about the time I sealed their cave with a boulder?
Local (1): You tell that story every time you're drunk.
Local (2): It's a good story.
Annika Witterfel: What have we here? Whatever it is, I bet I could make it delicious.
Varin Magnesson: It'd be a shame if anything happened to your stall. You'd have a hard time replacing those goods, yeah?
Varin Magnesson: The Wolfborn? Bah, they're just pups. If you want true protection for your goods, you talk to me. I'm just saying.
Kolof Vartsson: It's as if the spirits create this vista each day, just for me. I never tire of it.
Kolof Vartsson: Amazing. The spirits did us a great honor by guiding our ancestors to such majesty.
Traveler (1): I don't get it. I give 'em grief, and they give me stories.
Traveler (2): Yeah, they like to talk about themselves.
Traveler (1): You insult 'em, and they just boast more.
Explorer: I found a cave, but it's not on the map you sold me.
Cartographer: Oh, really?
Explorer: Pay me and I'll tell you where it is.
Drunk: To Eir! She'll break the fang yet.
Elder: I'm not so sure.
Drunk: Hey. HEY! Boy. Come here. Gimme a kiss. I wanna (hiccup) wanna...what was I saying?
Drunk: Can you help me out here?
Kid: No way! I'm on an adventure.
Drunk: Remember when we ran naked across the ice floe? Time for round two! Last one there buys the keg!
Visitor (hylek): Pardon me, good norn, but can you tell me if the weather is always this cold here?
Local: Cold? This? Hah! This is downright balmy for Hoelbrak. Just wait until the height of winter. Then you'll feel real cold.
Visitor (hylek): Gah! You were right, clan brother. This land will not make good spawning grounds. Let's hurry back to Lion's Arch.
Local: By the eye of Wolf, just tell me. I'm done guessing.
