- Lionguard Captain: Are you trying to commit arson? Look around you.
- Welder: Is it my fault those idiots piled up all this timber around me?
- Lionguard Captain: Just watch where—
- Child: Oh. Hey there, little buddy.
- Child: Are you hungry? I have some moa jerky...
- Child: (giggle) You're fun!
- (Child runs to his mother. Buddy follows him.)
- Child: Ma! Ma! Can we keep it?
- Citizen: Keep wh—
- Citizen: Son, I want you to slowly come over here and stand behind me.
- Child: Aw, Ma... It followed me home!
- Citizen: Do as I say. Just...move slowly and don't make any sudden movements, okay?
- (Mother chases Buddy away with a broom.)
- Citizen: Yaaaaaaa!
- Information Peddler: Big meeting under the claws. There was a tale of skritt making a ship, uh, somewhere
- Information Seeker: Ooh! Treasure ship? Shinies, maybe?
- Information Peddler: Maybe, yes. Something about a wizard skritt? and...a flood?
- Information Seeker: I want to hear more. Get me invited to that meeting!
- Information Peddler: Shhh! Okay, okay. I'll try.
- Adventurer (1): Got any plans tonight?
- Adventurer (2): Yeah, I'm meeting my guild later.
- Adventurer (1): Really? Are you gonna fight in the arena?
- Adventurer (2): No, we mostly fight with each other. You know how it goes.
- Citizen (1): These bars keep running out of ale!
- Citizen (2): They will remember the norn.
- Patron (asura): Are you a master mixologist? Can you mix me up a Sparkfly Fenblaster?
- Bartender (norn): I'm a bartender. I serve liquor, not swamp water.
- Patron (asura): My order is indeed an alcoholic beverage. Shall I show you how to mix it?
- Bartender (norn): Take one step behind my bar, and I'll give you a Hoelbrak Hammer.
- Bartender (human): Remember Yakkington?
- Patron: Yeah?
- Bartender (human): When I went to the bazaar, I saw a dolyak for sale, descended directly from the professor himself!
- Patron: Oh, that would be amazing.
- Citizen (male): You look great. You got any plans later?
- Citizen (female): They don't involve you.
- Citizen (male): [walks away and cries alone]
- Citizen (1): I've never felt more at home anywhere else outside the Grove.
- Citizen (2): Why is that, do you think?
- Citizen (1: I don't know. Maybe the sea air. Perhaps the spirit of cooperation.
- Traveler: This isn't a good time.
- Captain Ellen Kiel: Wish I had time to oversee the retrofit of the Havoc's Heir, over at Lion's Arch Aerodrome.
- Magnus the Bloody-Handed: Aye.
- Captain Ellen Kiel: If I could ever get away for a few minutes, I'd love to take a walk and see what's going on down at Lion's Court.
- Magnus the Bloody-Handed: Politics! (grumble)
- Captain Ellen Kiel: I've got some asuran stargazer asking me if I can "do something about the light pollution from Phoenix Roost."
- Magnus the Bloody Handed: Haha! Hilarious. (laugh)
- Captain Ellen Kiel: I mean, that torch is supposed to light the harbor up. That's the idea!
- Captain Ellen Kiel: It was nice of them to name this quarter after the commodore.
- Magnus the Bloody Handed: Hmm.
- Captain Ellen Kiel: Please tell me we have customs inspectors down at the docks by now.
- Magnus the Bloody-Handed: I've done what little I can, but you know our ranks are worn thin.
- Captain Ellen Kiel: I don't care how you do it, but we need that port secured.
- Magnus the Bloody-Handed: (sigh) I'm on your side, Ellen. Just give us time—we'll get things shipshape.
- At night on the beach
- Skritt appear on the beach near the water entrance to Trader Jikk's.
- Skritt (male): Okay, okay. Let's begin. Who has a tale to share with us?
- Skritt (female): Oh, I do! I heard skritt are building a ship, way out in the wastes.
- Skritt (male): Hold on. When were you out in the wastes?
- Skritt (female): I brought ale to a soldier. She told me they found a big scratch out west, where our people are building a ship.
- Skritt (female): She said the scratch has a storm wizard who will call down a flood so they can all sail away.
- Skritt (male): This is big, if it's true. Thank you.
- Skritt (male): If there are no more tales, then let us adjourn for now. Be safe.
- All the skritt disappear under sand.
- After Path of Fire launch
- Refugee (1): No, Balthazar is there to lead his army against Kralkatorrik's Branded. Dragon minions are the real threat.
- Refugee (2): We were keeping that threat in check. Balthazar's invasion made everything worse.
- Refugee (1): The Pact proved Elder Dragons can be killed. Balthazar is taking up that challenge. He's finally answering our prayers.
- Refugee (2): Who prayed to be invaded? As far as I'm concerned, Balthazar's armored horrors are worse than the branded.
- Refugee (2): They raid, ransack, and pillage. When they're not burning villages, they're starting battles in them.
- Refugee (1): War demands sacrifice; victory, even more so. Balthazar understands that and doesn't shirk from it.
- Refugee (2): If you think Balthazar's war is so necessary, then why didn't you stay to help him fight it?
- Refugee (3): Amnoon was always kind of shady, but now it's out of control.
- Refugee (4): The port wasn't built to cope with that many desperate people flooding in at once.
- Refugee (4): It's disgusting. The crime lords and the council are probably getting rich while all those people suffer and die.
- Refugee (3): Maybe Lion's Arch can help-they let us in. If they deliver aid, there may be hope.
- Refugee (5): Did you just arrive? It's been days since we heard any news. What's it like back home?
- Refugee (6): Bad. I'm just glad I got out. How did you manage?
- Refugee (5): Our families sold everything to secure passage on a corsair ship. It was only enough for two berths.
- Refugee (6): You're lucky the pirates kept their end of the bargain. I stowed away on a smuggler's skiff out of Amnoon.
- Refugee (6): She found me, but she was Elonian, so she didn't toss me overboard.
- Refugee (6): She took me out into the Sea of Sorrows and flagged down a Pact ship. A vigil frigate brought me the rest of the way.
- Refugee (7): The Branded were always a threat, but we could handle them. At least until Kralkatorrik moved and they followed.
- Refugee (7): No food, no water. We lost more people on the trek through the desert than we did in the attack.
- Refugee (8): But some of you survived. If you'd stayed and fought, you'd all be dead.
- Refugee (9): The Branded started moving, then Balthazar showed up with his army. That's two hostile forces right on Joko's doorstep.
- Refugee (9): Why won't Joko respond?
- Refugee (10): He doesn't think like we do. He's undead, and immortal. Insane.
- Refugee (10): He probably let all those people die so he'd have a fresh batch of corpses for his army.
