Ambient dialogue[edit]

Upon approaching Prince Bakkal's retinue
Prince Bakkal: Greetings! Do you bring word from our venerated ruler Palawa Joko?
<Character name>: No.
Consort Nalci: No one has heard from our esteemed lord in months. Are you concerned, Your Highness?
Prince Bakkal: Concerned? About the immortal, all-powerful master strategist of Vabbi? What concerns could I possibly have?
Advisor Yolac: You did lose your entire contingent of Awakened to the Forged.
Consort Nalci: And you lost control of the foundry and the mines.
Advisor Yolac: And the Forged have stripped the palace bare.
Consort Nalci: And you're currently receiving supplicants from behind iron bars.
Prince Bakkal: All part of the grand design, I assure you. No need to be concerned. King Joko loves us, one and all.
Prince Bakkal: Hello, and welcome. I am Prince Bakkal.
Prince Bakkal: I have the distinction of being the sixteenth ruler of Vehjin.
Advisor Yolac: This year.
Prince Bakkal: You may be wondering why I'm behind these bars.
Prince Bakkal: Rest assured, I'm here of my own volition. It is imperative that a proper chain of command persists in these trying times.
Consort Nalci: Trying, indeed.
Consort Nalci: Wake up, Your Highness. You have a visitor.
Prince Bakkal: What? Yes? Is it Palawa Joko? Has he returned?
If asura:
Advisor Yolac: ???
If charr:
Advisor Yolac: Not unless he's grown fur and a tail.
If human:
Advisor Yolac: ???
If norn:
Advisor Yolac: ???
If sylvari:
Advisor Yolac: Not unless he's traded places with a houseplant.
Prince Bakkal: Has he...? Wait, oh, no, yes...I see.
Prince Bakkal: Another supplicant come to stare at me through these bars?
Prince Bakkal: I feel less like a prince and more like a beast in the Garden's menagerie.
Consort Nalci: It could be the odor, Highness. The chamber pots won't fit through the bars.
Prince Bakkal: Can't we open the bars? Just a small amount?
Advisor Yolac: You threw away the key, Highness. As a safety measure.
Prince Bakkal: And the Forged have yet to reach us.
Prince Bakkal: Welcome to Vehjin. Please consider my palace, your palace.
Prince Bakkal: And if there is anything I can do for you, you need only ask with a bit of bowing and scraping.
Consort Nalci: What exactly can you do from in here?
Advisor Yolac: I might reduce that further. What can you do?
Prince Bakkal: Pay them no heed. Insubordination is a well-known side effect of claustrophobia.
Prince Bakkal: Oh, greetings, loyal subject! Are you a locksmith by any chance?
Consort Nalci: Our only locksmiths were Awakened, and they've all been destroyed.
Prince Bakkal: Of course they have. Well, no matter, I'm quite comfortable here in this well-appointed, secure royal meeting room.
Consort Nalci: Another approaches, my prince.
Prince Bakkal: A messenger of our resplendent leader, King Joko, come to rescue us?
Consort Nalci: I'm not entirely sure that it would be a positive development should His Lordship's messenger find you in here.
Prince Bakkal: What do you mean?
Advisor Yolac: You're not supposed to be in this room. It was meant only for King Joko himself.
Prince Bakkal: Oh, dear... I ran in here in a moment of panic. Very uncharacteristic, to be sure.
Prince Bakkal: Be sure not to touch anything—we'll put it all back the way we found it. Our omniscient leader shall be none the wiser...
Consort Nalci: And what of the supplicant? He's/She's seen you inside.
Prince Bakkal: Can we dispose of him/her?
Advisor Yolac: That could prove difficult given our current, ah, situation.
Prince Bakkal: Right, yes. Well, then let the Awakened handle it!
Consort Nalci: The Awakened are all gone, Highness. Still.
Prince Bakkal: Still? Hm, then I suppose we grant the supplicant whatever favor we can.
Prince Bakkal: With the understanding that we granted said favor from a location well outside this room, of course.
Prince Bakkal: Isn't someone going to announce me?
Consort Nalci: What do you mean?
Prince Bakkal: Whenever someone would approach, our Awakened would say something.
Advisor Yolac: What would they say? I kind of tuned them out.
Prince Bakkal: You know. Titles and whatnot. Lofty things. Also, I think you're supposed to call me "Your Highness."
Advisor Yolac: More strangers approach, Your Highness—sauntering about as if they own the place.
Consort Nalci: Do you have a plan for regaining control of the palace, my prince?
Prince Bakkal: Most assuredly. Let the Awakened handle it!
Advisor Yolac: The Awakened are gone, Highness. Wiped out.
Advisor Yolac: And none of those imbued with the almighty King Joko's authority have come to do the raising.
Prince Bakkal: Still? It's unlike them to be dead so long.
Consort Nalci: To be fair, reports indicate there was very little left to raise after the battle.
Prince Bakkal: Very troubling. Thankfully, we have a guest here to distract us with...something less bleak, I hope.
Prince Bakkal: So, with what matter can I assist?
Prince Bakkal: My, my. More visitors than one would anticipate considering the world is ending.
Consort Nalci: Is the world truly ending, Highness?
Prince Bakkal: Only if it is the will of Palawa Joko.
Advisor Yolac: Praise Joko.
Prince Bakkal: Praise Joko.
Consort Nalci: Praise Joko.
Prince Bakkal: Though I'm certainly important enough to be told if he decided to bring about the end of times.
Prince Bakkal: Until that time, we must maintain a sense of normalcy.
Consort Nalci: Indeed. Please, dispense your wisdom from your princely prison cell without further interruption, Highness.
Concluding variants:
Prince Bakkal: What is it you require?
Prince Bakkal: Now, how may the crown serve?
Prince Bakkal: Now, to what do we owe this pleasure?
Prince Bakkal: So, you have your audience. What do you ask of me?
Outside the palace
Noble: I’m ashamed to admit what I ate last night.
Noble: I think something's biting me in my sleep.
Noble: These houseflies seem to be executing a coordinated attack on me.
Noble: I can't wait for our illustrious leader to finish off those intruders once and for all.
Elonian Royal: Yes, and then we'll celebrate! Praise Joko!
Elonian Royal: It feels like it's been ages since I've gotten a good night's sleep.
Noble: I'm too worried to sleep.
Elonian Royal: How can a man live without assistance from the dead?
Noble: Does anyone remember how to tie a tie? No? How about a shoe?
Noble: If the Forged return, I may faint.
Near the adventure
Overwhelmed Volunteer Steward: If you could assist us, we'd appreciate it.
