Ambient dialogue[edit]

In Speaker Headquarters
Speaker Guerrilla: That other Warden, he was...desiccated?
Champion Speaker Sunderer: Yes. Very suddenly. Leaving him a cracking husk.
Speaker Guerrilla: Did someone cast a spell on him or something?
Champion Speaker Sunderer: There was a power of some kind involved, but I did not recognize it. In all my centuries, I have seen nothing like it.
Speaker Guard (1): You hear about the...bombs?
Speaker Guard (2): Oh...yeah.
Speaker Guard (1): Seems like kind of...a lot. If we're just going to use them to blow up tech, that's one thing, but...
Speaker Guard (2): Yeah, I hear you. A lot's changed since Tetra came on.
Speaker Guard (3): What was the name of the village we were going to hit? Teleri?
Speaker Guard (4): Yes. Their local cemetery is ripe for harvest. So many vigorous spirits.
Speaker Guard (4): A few of the lieutenants tried talking to the villagers. Pointing out how much less it'll hurt if they join willingly...
Speaker Guard (4): But they're being stubborn.
Speaker Guard (5): You get anything good off the caravan you hit this morning?
Speaker Guard (6): Eh, just a whole lotta fish. You?
Speaker Guard (5): Oh yeah (chuckle). Xunlai was trying to be clever. Hid a jade-tech shipment under a bunch of wrinkly vegetables.
Speaker Guard (5): I figured there was something good inside when the "farmers" made it clear their radishes were worth dying over.
Speaker Guard (5): Dug around in the vegetables and came out with some kind of useless automated something...
Speaker Guard (6): So you gonna do the honors?
Speaker Guard (5): Of destroying it? I don't know. We'll see what Tetra says, but I hope so.
Speaker Guard (6): Brotherhood hit a group of ritualists on their way back from a spirit harvest last night.
Speaker Guard (5): Any casualties?
Speaker Guard (6): Yeah. All of them.
Speaker Guard (5): ALL of them?
Speaker Guard (6): They used some of their jade tech. Got the jump on us.
Speaker Guard (5): Tetra's planning to hit them back, right?
Speaker Guard (6): Oh yeah. It'll be soon.
Nervous Jade Brotherhood Inventor: Please, all I do is work on machines!
Speaker Lieutenant: That's exactly why you're here. You need to face the consequences of the evil you've brought into the world.
Nervous Jade Brotherhood Inventor: It's not evil, it's just technology!
Speaker Lieutenant: Oh? All those weapons your people've been using to blast us apart are virtuous?
Nervous Jade Brotherhood Inventor: Okay, well, those may be a little evil... But I don't build weapons, I make things like, well, the oven in that bakery!
Nervous Jade Brotherhood Inventor: All it does is bake bread! Perfect, crusty-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside bread. There's nothing evil about bread!
Speaker Lieutenant: You don't need to spoil the natural world to bake bread.
High Speaker Noomi: Kropa outpost only sent half of what they owe us in fees.
Tetra Earthcall: Did they offer any explanation?
High Speaker Noomi: None.
Tetra Earthcall: Go back and take the rest. If they wish to keep using the forest, they must pay for its care.
High Speaker Noomi: Done.
High Speaker Jika: A Xunlai caravan is scheduled to come dump more filth.
Tetra Earthcall: Perhaps we should demonstrate that it is not welcome.
High Speaker Jika: You mean...Project Honeypot?
Tetra Earthcall: Indeed. It will pass through Jade Brotherhood territory, correct?
High Speaker Noomi: Yes, they control an outpost near the dumpsite.
Speaker Recruit (1): Can you believe Tetra Earthcall is just...right over there?
Speaker Recruit (2): I know! We're fighting alongside Wardens! Echovald's chosen protectors...
Speaker Recruit (1): Just how old are they?
Speaker Recruit (2): No one knows. Hundreds...thousands of years, maybe.
Speaker Recruit (2): Couldn't convince the rest of your family to join us?
Speaker Recruit (1): Nope, my mother thinks her flower power's gonna save the forest.
Speaker Recruit (2): (snort) Against the flood of jade tech corruption? Ridiculous.
Speaker Recruit (2): Your brother and sister agree with her?
Speaker Recruit (1): Yeah. They stayed to help with her pointless rituals.
Speaker Recruit (1): It's up to me to save them. To save all of us.
Speaker Guard (7): What do you think it'll be like? Being a Warden.
Speaker Guard (8): Probably a little odd, at first. But we'll get used to it.
Speaker Guard (7): They don't eat. I'm gonna miss food.
Speaker Guard (8): It'll be worth it. We'll be able to drive back anyone who threatens the forest.
Speaker Guard (7): Do you think we'll be able to turn back?
Speaker Guard (8): I wouldn't count on it.
Speaker Guard (9): (sniffing) Is that lavender?
Speaker Guard (10): Oh, yeah, I've been growing some in the allotment.
Speaker Guard (9): Alongside those amazing radishes. How do you grow them so big?
Speaker Guard (10): Oh, you know, just really gotta work the soil... Make plenty of space for their roots to spread out.
Speaker Guard (10): Just respect them and their space.
Elite Speaker Guard: I first bound this spirit two years ago.
Speaker Guard: Two years? He's never managed to break free?
Elite Speaker Guard: No, my bindings are far too complex.
