Before completion
Incomplete heart (map icon).png Ah, is there anything so intoxicating as the exquisite scent of a murder of harpies wafting through the breeze on a beautiful day?
Talk give option tango.png I didn't notice, but I have some harpy feathers for you.
Excelsior! Your contribution is will[sic] be sufficient to begin production. I will gladly take more should you acquire them. Take the hint and get back out there.
Talk end option tango.png You're welcome...I guess.
Talk more option tango.png Uh, l guess I've never been close enough to one to notice.
Very few have. At least not and lived to tell about it. But my brother Wark and I have developed a way to bottle the sweet aroma. Harpy perfume! That way, anyone can smell like a harpy in spring.
Talk more option tango.png So you're already making this perfume?
Not yet. The trick is harvesting the harpy sweat—which we'll call "essence" on the ingredient label—and harpy feathers, which are uniquely constructed to filter out the malodorous parts of the sweat.
Talk more option tango.png But if you can't get close, how can you obtain the feathers and sweat?
This is where my genius comes in. I have developed a multipurpose Experimental Essence Extractor to make the whole thing 87 percent foolproof. It stuns the harpies and extracts their essence automatically.
Talk more option tango.png What about their feathers?
More genius! The Extractor can make the wielder invisible. That way, you can sneak up on them and pluck the feathers out without fear. Or you could pick up any just lying around.
Talk more option tango.png Why not just kill them for the feathers?
You may have to, and destroy their roosts, just to keep them guessing. Problem is, the moment a harpy dies, its feathers wither and are useless. That's why dead harpies smell like...well, dead harpies.
Talk more option tango.png How can l help?
Grab one of my Essence Extractors and use it to gather the harpies' essence, pluck their feathers or pick up any you find in their nests, and kill a few and destroy their roosts to keep them distracted.
Talk end option tango.png I love a good harpy workout.
Talk end option tango.png Sounds like a challenge.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe if the mood to pluck strikes me.
Talk end option tango.png You are a genius. l'll just leave you alone with your brilliance.
Talk end option tango.png Interesting information, but l have to go.
Talk end option tango.png This isn't for me. Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png To each his own, I guess.
After completion
Complete heart (map icon).png Never underestimate the potential contribution of a simple adventurer. You have impressed and surprised me. Expect a complimentary bottle of our perfume "Asuralations" when we finalize the formula.
Karma.png Whatcha got?
Talk end option tango.png That's okay. A simple "thanks" will suffice.
During Rescue Wark from the infatuated harpy matriarch
<Character name>! Thank goodness you're here. Wark has found himself in the talons of yet another inftuated[sic] harpy. Can you help him?
Talk more option tango.png Leave it to me.
Complete heart (map icon).pngKarma.png Whatcha got?
Talk end option tango.png Sorry, not again. Perhaps you two should consider getting a new hobby.
