Vehtendi Academy is an area in the Domain of Vabbi. It is here that students are indoctrinated from a young age to worship Palawa Joko. They are taught a heavily revised and exaggerated history that portrays Joko as a divine being.

Ambient dialogue[edit]

Near Bounty Board
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: Reports of creatures driven insane by ley energy are coming from all over. Are you going to help?
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: Check the bounty boards! The Branded devourer Snap Spinecrack has gone mad.
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: Fire djinn Effazu the Lodestar has gone mad and is attacking students. Hunt him down, quick!
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: A Forged hound has been running wild near the academy. Please protect the students.
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: Alarming news of a vicious Awakened devastator! Can you investigate?
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: The wildlife is acting up. I bet ley energy's involved. You should investigate.
Disguised Order of Shadows Agent: Confirmed sightings on the legendary Branded hydra Daol Brol Shiol! Check the bounty boards!
At XX:00 during day time:
Headmaster Kavur: Good morning, students!
Headmaster Kavur: Please join me as we pledge our allegiance to Palawa Joko.

Spoken with the gathered students

Headmaster Kavur: To Palawa Joko, faultless king, father of the United Kingdom of Elona, bane of false deities and wicked dragons,
Headmaster Kavur: I pledge my undying existence, in servitude, in perpetuity, in life and in living death.
Headmaster Kavur: Praise Joko.
Entering the Headmaster's Office
Headmaster Kavur: Excuse me, this area is off-limits!
Headmaster's Office
Headmaster Kavur: Yes, good. All in order.
Headmaster Kavur: Those dragon minions are quite a nuisance.
Headmaster Kavur: Who's been removing scrolls from my library?
Headmaster Kavur: I'm much too busy to teach, myself. There are meetings to attend to, activities to organize–the list goes on.
Headmaster Kavur: No time to stop. I have a schedule to keep.
Headmaster Kavur: Graduating from the academy and being asked to join the Mordant Crescent is the highest honor a student can achieve.
Headmaster Kavur: No school has higher test scores in all of Vabbi.
Headmaster Kavur: Ah, these kids are exhausting.
Headmaster Kavur: I do enjoy a hot cup of tea in the afternoon.
Headmaster Kavur: I have to review these documents by tomorrow.
Headmaster Kavur: I want these books recataloged and organized immediately.
Headmaster Kavur: Take note of the inventory. Everything must be accounted for.
Headmaster Kavur: Where is that djinn? This hallway is filthy.
Headmaster Kavur: Walk, please! No running!.
Headmaster Kavur: I wonder if King Joko will attend the annual budget meeting this year.
House Ingene Dormitory
House Ingene Cadet: Praise Joko!
House Ingene Cadet: Praise be to King Joko.
House Ingene Cadet: Better to be prepared than to be sorry. That's what I always say.
House Ingene Cadet: I can read at the same level as the older kids. Especially the ones in House Rolic.
House Ingene Cadet: Our teachers are great. Mostly.
House Ingene Cadet: I've never failed a test.
House Ingene Cadet: This book is fascinating. Why read fiction when real life is so unbelievable?
House Ingene Cadet: I admire the strength and determination of Ventura. Wait, did I just say that out loud?
House Ingene Cadet: Reading and sitting by the fire is the best.
House Ingene Cadet: Nuts are the perfect brain food.
House Ingene Cadet: Neat.
House Ingene Cadet: Rather than take physical exams, can I just get extra credit for the written test?
House Ingene Cadet: I like to stay up past bedtime to read. Don't tell anyone.
House Ingene Cadet: (yawn) I shouldn't have stayed up all night reading. I just couldn't put the book down. Junundu mating rituals are fascinating.
House Ingene Cadet: Shoot. I lost my favorite quill.
House Ingene Cadet: I heard there's a surprise test tomorrow. Be prepared.
House Ingene Cadet: King Joko should outlaw pop quizzes.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Did you hear? The cadets from House Rolic pilfered a cask of wine.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Pah! They'll drink themselves stupid. That may not make a difference with them. But our minds will be clear tomorrow.
House Ingene Cadet (1): House Rolic is so loud! How many times have we asked them to quiet down now?
House Ingene Cadet (2): With those imbeciles, the words go in one ear, bounce off the dense rocks, and come back out the same ear.
House Ingene Cadet (1): The dragon corruption is so close to the academy. Have you been out there?
House Ingene Cadet (2): No, why would I do something so foolhardy? This isn’t House Rolic.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Did you see those girls sleeping through the lecture earlier?
House Ingene Cadet (2): From House Rolic? Well, I saw one, and heard the other. Sounded like a dolyak in labor. She must have a deviated septum.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Help! There’s tar in my hair.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Ha-ha!
House Ingene Cadet (1): It’s not funny.
House Ingene Cadet (1): My book report on King Joko will be the best in class.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Nuh-uh! Mine is gonna be the best!
House Ingene Cadet (1): The field trip is canceled this year.
House Ingene Cadet (2): What? That's not fair! Everyone else got to go.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Was that music coming from the House Rolic dorm last night?
House Ingene Cadet (2): Calling it music would be generous. Jackals fighting over the last scrap of dolyak meat make less of a cacophony.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Do you think the team from House Ventura poses a threat in the next tournament?
House Ingene Cadet (2): Maybe if they exercised their minds as much as their muscles.
House Ingene Cadet (1): There's no time to play. I have to learn all about King Joko.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Hurry up!
House Ingene Cadet (1): I think King Joko would have joined House Ingene had he attended the academy.
House Ingene Cadet (2): No doubt. It's not simply the might of his armies that give him power. It's the intellect that commands them.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Joko is the best. I hope I get to meet him one day.
House Ingene Cadet (2): He only meets with the best and the brightest! That's what my brother told me.
House Ingene Cadet (1): I hate training the junundu wurms. Once they spit on you, it never comes off.
House Ingene Cadet (2): And the smell! Ugh! It's like Awakened teeth wrapped in raw jackal intestines.
House Ingene Cadet (1): I'm exhausted, but I still need to study. I'm on my third cup of coffee.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Ah, coffee. A required component of the academy survival kit.
House Ingene Cadet (1): That custodian creeps me out. He's always patrolling and mumbling to himself.
House Ingene Cadet (2): Best to stay out of his way. Djinns have nasty tempers. So do janitors. And he's both!
House Ingene Cadet (1): The headmaster owns some incredibly rare literature. I wish our library's collection was even half as impressive.
House Ingene Cadet (2): The solution is simple. "Borrow" one, and return it before he even knows it was missing.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Do you think anyone intends to do something about the Branded?
House Ingene Cadet (2): Unlikely. Those wastes of potential from House Rolic have no motivation.
House Ingene Cadet (2): And those maschoists from House Ventura enjoy the challenge they present.
House Ingene Cadet (1): Then I suppose it falls to us to devise a solution. As usual.
House Ingene Cadet: House Rolic could be so much more—if you only applied yourselves.
House Rolic Cadet: Less is more. Unapply yourself.
House Rolic Cadet: So, does all that thinking make your brains hurt?
House Ingene Cadet: No. Does all that lethargy make your glutei hurt?
House Ingene Cadet: Did anyone from House Rolic "borrow" any calipers yesterday?
House Rolic Cadet: Yeah, we needed them to decide a winner in our snot-ball contest. Like you, we believe precision matters.
House Rolic Dormitory
Professor: All right, cadets. In our next lesson, we'll investigate the mysterious extinction of the local centaur population.
House Rolic Cadet: Praise Joko!
House Rolic Cadet: King Joko is the greatest!
House Rolic Cadet: There’s going to be a party later. Make sure you tell everyone.
House Rolic Cadet: I'm bored. There's nothing to do.
House Rolic Cadet: It was my turn to use the telescope.
House Rolic Cadet: King Joko is the best king ever.
House Rolic Cadet: By the time I decided to start a food fight, I'd already eaten all the food.
House Rolic Cadet: Did you see that Ingene kid staring at me? It was creepy the way he looked at me with his four eyes.
House Rolic Cadet: The frog experiment was so messy. I hope we get to do that again.
House Rolic Cadet: Hey, you should let me do a sketch for you sometime.
House Rolic Cadet: Has anybody seen my glasses?
House Rolic Cadet: Ugh, a 500 word essay on the Awakened's impact on Jokobean Era economics. What does that even mean?
House Rolic Cadet: What did you think of my poem "Ode to Procrastination"? Wish I'd had more time to finish it.
House Rolic Cadet: Going to class is such a drag.
House Rolic Cadet (1): I'm so mad at Naila. She embarrassed me in front of the whole class.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Aw, don’t be mad. It was just a joke.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Homework really cuts into my time doing nothing. Why do we have to do it?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Do you want to do nothing forever, or do you want to be a Mordant Crescent?
House Rolic Cadet (1): You want to hear about the most amazing prank I just pulled?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Yes, please. I need a break.
House Rolic Cadet (1): So I put red paint inside the House Ventura armor.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Next time they go into the field, they'll start sweating and the red will run.
House Rolic Cadet (1): If it works right, they'll think they're all bleeding out!
House Rolic Cadet (1): Do we really have to compete in the tournament again?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Maybe we can ditch. Think anyone will notice?
House Rolic Cadet (1): Stayed up too late last night. No way I’m finishing this homework now.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Say you dropped it and the janitor picked it up.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Do you think that’ll work?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Try it and let me know.
House Rolic Cadet (1): If we win the tournament, we should invite the other houses to the party.
House Rolic Cadet (2): You think any of them will come?
House Rolic Cadet (1): Doubt it, but it's a great way to rub their elitist noses in our victory. And we'll add a cover charge.
House Rolic Cadet (1): I think I've discovered the secret to success here at the academy.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Cheating?
House Rolic Cadet (1): In a pinch, sure. But in general, just don't get stressed. Stay mellow.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Totally. Apathy is the best policy.
House Rolic Cadet (1): The sculpture you were making in class was amazing.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Thanks.
House Rolic Cadet (1): It really captured the essence of Palawa Joko. I can almost smell his ancient breath.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Look, look! My cookie looks just like King Joko!
House Rolic Cadet (2): Does not. He’s way handsomer.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Does too! You’re just trying to steal it!
House Rolic Cadet (2): I’m hungry.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Are you going to audition for the school play?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Of course! Who else has my charisma? Definitely not an Ingene egghead or a Ventura snob!
House Rolic Cadet (1): We should start a petition to shorten the school day.
House Rolic Cadet (2): The House Ingene kids would never sign. They probably want to petition for more class.
House Rolic Cadet (2): And the Ventura kids would only sign if they could still access the training yards.
House Rolic Cadet (1): The House Ventura buffoons are puffing out their chests again, looking for a fight.
House Rolic Cadet (2): Don't play into it. Just laugh it off. It drives them crazy.
House Rolic Cadet (1): I want to repaint the dorm walls. Any suggestions?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Oooh, can you do a mural of all of us surrounding King Joko?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Yes! And put him in House Rolic colors, with our emblem on his staff!
House Rolic Cadet (1): Did you hear the Ingene weirdos whining about the noise?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Yeah, what's their problem? They allergic to fun?
House Rolic Cadet (2): I swear, they bang on that wall every night. It's like a bonus percussion section.
House Ingene Cadet: I swore I heard scurrying coming from the Rolic dorms.
House Rolic Cadet: Possible. We scurry every once in awhile. The rodents scurry all the time.
House Rolic Cadet: So do you ever turn your brains off over there?
House Ingene Cadet: Hardly. King Joko wants our minds sharp.
House Rolic Cadet (1): I'm not sure what to do for my project this semester. Do you know what you're going to do?
House Rolic Cadet (2): I'm going to perform an interpretative dance of the battle between King Joko and Zhaitan. I've practiced for a month.
House Rolic Cadet (1): Oh, man, I'm not prepared at all. Can I play Zhaitan? I do a great death rattle. (gurgh!)
House Rolic Cadet (1): I stole my big sister's makeup. Want to try it?
House Rolic Cadet (2): Yeah! But what if she finds out?
House Rolic Cadet (1): She's Awakened. She doesn't use it anymore anyway. I kind of wish she would.
House Ventura Dormitory
House Ventura Cadet (1): A few of us are going to sneak out later. Are you in?
House Ventura Cadet (2): You know it!
House Ventura Cadet: Try and hit me.
House Ventura Cadet: That all you got?
House Ventura Cadet: Failure is an opportunity to learn, but don't make too many mistakes.
House Ventura Cadet: Sometimes I get detention for not sitting still. And I can't sit still there, either.
House Ventura Cadet: Training is my favorite class.
House Ventura Cadet: I love Palawa Joko.
House Ventura Cadet: The test tomorrow will be tough.
House Ventura Cadet: Sneaking off the grounds without supervision is prohibited. You have to be sure you won't get caught.
House Ventura Cadet (1): You smell. Worse than my great-great-great grandma, even.
House Ventura Cadet (2): No way—she's totally rotten!
House Ventura Cadet (1): I'm worried about the combat exam coming up. My form isn't perfect.
House Ventura Cadet (2): Don't worry. I'll help you train.
House Ventura Cadet (1): I hope King Joko knows I got top marks on my last exam.
House Ventura Cadet (2): King Joko knows everything, so you know he knows.
House Ventura Cadet (1): Ugh, written exams just aren't my strong suit. I forget everything the second I pick up a pencil.
House Ventura Cadet (2): Good thing it's only a portion of your grades. You're going to have to ace everything else, though.
House Ventura Cadet (1): Did you see those guys from Ingene trying to put on armor?
House Ventura Cadet (2): Missed it. Was it entertaining?
House Ventura Cadet (1): Hilarious. Clamps, hoses, gears... They need a week with a manual and the technical specifications to do anything.
House Ventura Cadet (1): I'm so sick of those kids from House Rolic.
House Ventura Cadet (2): What did they do this time?
House Ventura Cadet (1): It's what they don't do. Clean. Bathe. Brush their teeth.
House Ventura Cadet (1): I can’t believe the teacher confiscated my knife.
House Ventura Cadet (2): Oh, no! He took your lucky knife?
House Ventura Cadet (1): Well, I did accidentally stab myself in the big toe with it. Maybe the luck wore off.
House Ingene Cadet: I was observing your exercise routine. I think it could be more efficient.
House Ventura Cadet: Anything else you'd like to give me advice on that you're completely unqualified for? Fashion? Social skills? Hiking?
House Ventura Cadet: Hey, you need help carrying around your books, sweetheart?
House Ingene Cadet: I am more than capable, I assure you.
House Ingene Cadet: Gah! The smell of sweat from the Venture dorms is overpowering.
House Ventura Cadet: Huh. I don't smell anything.
Outside the academy, near the adventure
Academy Provisioner: If you could assist us, we'd appreciate it.
Academy Provisioner: Watch your back out there!
If Awakened slipped on gunk
Awakened <x>: (groan) Ow.
Awakened <x>: Gah!
Awakened <x>: Clean...this...up.
