Labrusca: Hello, adventurer! Welcome to Hunter's Paradise! Why don't you go in, grab a milkshake, and make yourself at home? *smile*
The New Dawn
Karina: Hi there!
Karina: My name is Karina, I represent the New Dawn.
Karina: We're a group of scholars who gather information about monster threats, and make it available to adventurers like yourself who are willing to help.
Karina: We are able to pay you for your service by buying their pelts from you, and in turn selling it to merchants who craft items from them to sell.
Karina: We're sorry that we can't pay you without first receiving the pelts. The income we get from selling them is how we stay in business.
Karina: You look like a seasoned <Class>, Would you help us out?
Karina: Is it dangerous? Well of course, hun.
Karina: That's why you don't see me downtown Falconreach offering these jobs to regular townsfolk.
Karina: We need tough adventurers like yourself to take down beasts like these.
Karina: Oh, Robina! Of course i know her, she used to be a regular here.
Karina: Next time you see her, tell her to come visit.
Karina: Right now there aren't many, as we've been fortunate to have a lot of help recently. But new jobs open up all the time.
Karina: Did you bring back any pelts to sell to me? This is how New Dawn pays you for your service.
Milkior: Welcome, friend!
Sir Tain: So, as I was saying... Sir Ano seems more confident than he used to be. The lad took me by surprise..
Grubbs: Hahaha! He always was a bit wet behind the ears! Glad to see he's doing alright for himself, then.
Grubbs: ...Hey, you guys heard about Rat & Dirk?
Sir Tain: Hah! What did those two get themselves into this time?
Grubbs: Well, for all the burn luck they've had, I figured they'd never make anything for themselves...
Grubbs: But I haven't heard from them in a while. They took off on some great expedition they were bragging about, and no-one's heard of em' since!
Milkior: Aww, I'm gonna miss their antics.
Sir Tain: Aye.. but this worries me. Dirk has a knack for getting into more trouble than he can handle...
Milkior: Oh, don't worry about them y'ol bump on a log. Maybe they found their calling.
Grubbs: Like what. Comedic relief?
Sir Tain: HAR HAR HAAAAAAR!
Milkior: Wait, that wasn't even funny.
Bjorn: Hey <Character>! Norsk and I heard about this place and decided to check it out.
Bjorn: If you're going to grab a bite, try the roasted swamp turkey! OM NOM NOM!
Gordy: What on Lore am I eating?!
Gordy: I wonder if they accidentally cook a piece of furniture...
Sir Norre: ..cheese curds. zZzzz....
Sir Norre: ..zZz.. Jacques, that water is gross, dude. I ain't drinking it. Zzzzz....
Lukei: Talok! Good to see you, old friend! Let's go have a seat and catch up. Are you hungry? I'm buying.
Talok: Lukei! I'm sorry, I'm really just passing through. I heard there was another paladin out this way who could use a hand.
Lukei: I see. Well, please return soon... It's been years since I've seen you, my friend.
Talok: Aye. And I believe that you still owe me a good deal of gold...
Lukei: Ohhhh... Uhh... I - wow. You have a good memory!
Talok: Haha, don't sweat it. You know I wouldn't hold it to you.
Talok: I'll just blackmail you into setting me up on a date with your sister.
Crystal: Welcome to Hunter's Paradise. Would you like to rent a room for the night, or perhaps something more permanent?
Rat: Hey boss, somebody's hiring freelance monster hunters.
Rat: Yeah.. that'd be fun, don't you think? Let's go to Falconreach and buy some gear!
Dirk: But we have no money. Find something that has no startup cost.
Rat: Oh, right. Hmm, Maybe we shouldn't have blown all our gold on these cool outfits.
Dirk: No way, we are the Midnight Bandits! We can't be running around in normal clothes.
Dirk: We need to work on our image.
Dirk: Now we just need a bit more gold and we can start making a name for ourselves.
Rat: ...Cause the ladies like 'bad boys,' right?
Dirk: Now you're catching on!
Dirk: Hey, what gives? You were supposed to find a gig for us.
Rat: I know, boss, but everything I find requires us to equip ourselves with our own gear.
Dirk: Look, don't gimme that. If you can't handle this then maybe you aren't cut out to be a Midnight Bandit!
Rat: I can't pull jobs out of the air, boss. I told you we should've spent the gold on weapons.
Dirk: Ok, ok. Looks like we're gonna have to McEYE-ver us some gear out of what we have.
Rat: What do we have?
Dirk: Let's see... We've got 3 paperclips, a stick, a can of schnozzber-
Rat: I drank that.
Dirk: ...an empty can of schnozzberry juice, a rusty fork, and two tickets to the Falconreach Monster Zoo.
Rat: It's hopeless, boss.
Dirk: Don't give up so easily. *(cracks knuckles)* Time to shine, baby! Watch me work!
Rat: ...You built THAT out of all that junk?!
Dirk: Build? Who said anything about building something?
Rat: I thought you were gonna create some weapons out of the garbage we were carrying around.
Dirk: How in the world am I supposed to do that?! I said I was gonna McEYEver something.
Dirk: There was a guy out back who's into recycling, so I sold him all that junk.
Rat: I don't get it.
Dirk: McEyever is the name of his business.
Dirk: I used that money to buy this axe off some other guy.
Dirk: He said he found it just lying around... But I'm thinking it was lying amongst somebody's belongings if ya know what I mean.
Rat: So you bought stolen goods?
Dirk: Well.. yeah. We're bandits.
Rat: I thought we were just gonna dress up with these cool outfits and try to get girls to like us.
Dirk: You're hopeless.
Rat: So.. if that's yours, then what am I gonna use?
Rat: That?! That looks kinda.. unhealthy. Where'd you get it?
Dirk: In the garbage. Can you believe they were just gonna throw it away?
Rat: ... Yes.
Dirk: You'll be fine. Just don't cut yourself.
Dirk: Anyways, let's go. I have a plan.
Rat: This is a bad idea.
Ketra: Oh, hey there. Sorry, (*blush*) I was in deep thought.
<Character>: That's all right. Anything I can help with?
Ketra: Well.. I am trying to read this terrible old map. It seems to have as many inaccuracies as it does smudges.
<Character>: Ouch. I hear you. I often get some pretty wonky directions when taking quests.
Ketra: Heh. I just wish I knew what this one word is. Here, let me read it to you and maybe you know what it should say...
Ketra: "Buried beneath the sand along the _______ shore, a timeworn passage to a power forgotten."
<Character>: Hmmm... Allow me to think for a moment.
Ned: Hey, you don't happen to have an air freshener do you?
Smugglin' Sam: Ye best be gettin' on, landlubber. I've got way too much work ta do ta be puttin' up wit de likes of youse.
Terra: Please.. I just want to be alone.
Jonesy: I love exploring! So much of Lore is yet to be discovered, who knows what's out there...
Jonesy: Well, for example... did you know that there's some old ruin near here? You can see it from the guard towers in Moonridge.
Jonesy: Nobody seems to know anything about it. It's old though, and it's way up in the mountains.
Tarezea: Feels good to get out and explore, doesn't it?
Tarezea: Well.. there is an amazing beach to the North of the Sandsea. There is a settlement there also; Aika Village.
Tarezea: Well.. there's sand, and .. some water. And the people are great. Most travelers catch a ride to Sho'Nuff from there.
Tarezea: Argh, I have to stop talking about it. I'm getting all nostalgic.
Rapina: For the last time, NO, THE FOOD IS NOT FREE. Gosh, you're so cheap!
Steve: *(Hehehe, we made a lot of gold on that last run! SUCKER!)*
Alta: Hey, I saw you back in Falconreach. Hows it going?
Teral: *(Stares into the fire)*
Teral: Oh, heh.. hello there.
Teral: I was just enjoying the campfire. Heh, it takes me back to my younger years, roaming the world looking for adventure.
Teral: Yes I--
Teral: Well I--
Teral: *(snoring softly)*
Teral: I'm a retired monster hunter. I opened up this here inn so that adventurers can have a place to go to get away from it all.
Teral: ...And I figured what better place for rough & tough lifestyle than Doomwood Forest?
Teral: Heh, I think you'll find it quite a different atmosphere here than in most of the towns.
Teral: Heh! Yep, we get lots of adventurin' types like you. We get the odd trader or merchant too, being close to Falconreach and Amityvale.
Teral: And Moonridge ain't that far away. I've met a few of their patrols wanderin' around.
Teral: HAHaaa! Got me there, I guess. I craft weapons and gear out of the stuff you folks bring back from your adventurers.
Teral: Pelts, hides, tusks, you name it and I can make somethin' useful out of it. Living off the land is a lifestyle, not just a hobby.
Teral: Well, I grew up in the Sandsea. In my youth, I got involved with a bad crowd and before I knew it I was part of a gang of thieves.
Teral: Heh, hoodlums more like.
Teral: These were a sign of membership.
Teral: Hehe, the mark of a good storyteller is when you are left wanting to hear more.
Teral: I do! Hahahaha!
Teral: Eh? No, if I was a little more spry I might take you up on that. But thanks all the same, I'm retired and for good reason.
Teral: Besides, I like this life.
Teral: Sure I don't get the adrenaline rush of taking down giant beasts anymore, if my heart could even take it...
Teral: ...But I get to help properly equip youngsters like you to better survive an encounter like that.
Teral: At my age I can do more good here than you out there. I just wish..
Teral: Let's see what you got for materials.. maybe I can make you some new gear.
Scribbles: Can't you see i'm busy?
Scribbles: Scribe. I'm a scribe.
Scribbles: Scribes research and document important historical information, although currently i'm working on something a bit more... interesting.
Scribbles: There are many scribe guilds all across Lore, but i am from Swordhaven.
Scribbles: I was sent here to document the strange occurrences of Doomwood and it's surrounding area.
Scribbles: Particularly the Necromancers and how they function as a society.
Scribbles: Heh, oh well thank you for that invaluable input, i guess i can just go back to Swordhaven now...
Scribbles: No, we are not hiring. You look like the adventuring type, do you really want sit hunched over a desk all day?
Scribbles: Anyway, you'd need to go to Swordhaven and ask Scribe Yolan, but he is a grumpy old bean so good luck with that.
Scribbles: Yes, i know of the King. I have not dealt with him directly, though i understand him to be a kind and righteous ruler.
Scribbles: The king is too busy to invest in dialogue with a scribe, and we are too busy to come running whenever he needs something.
Scribbles: That's what his chief advisors are for. HAH! flatterers and sycophants.
Scribbles: No, Teral doesn't mind me using this as an office.
Scribbles: He understands that it serves an important purpose, and respects my work greatly.
Scribbles: And i also pay him a lot of gold.
Scribbles: Yes, but only if you cease pestering me with your relentless questions and allow me to get back to work.
Taros: This is a great place for entrepreneurs like us to sell our goods. Want to buy a watch?
Tank: If you go hunting Rhoddhu, don't forget to bring a jacket. It's too cold for me, I think I'll try something else.
Merchant Siyan: Hello There.
Merchant Siyan: I am Siyan, a merchant. I am traveling from the West on my to Moonridge, a town on the North-East edge of this forest.
Merchant Siyan: Mostly supplies and equipment to aid the townsfolk in their daily lives. I don't normally travel this way, however.
Merchant Siyan: Actually the path between Falconreach and Moonridge is cut off at the moment. The Moonridge knights allow no one access.
Merchant Siyan: I suspect they are dealing with another outbreak of Undead. Doomwood is full of them.
Merchant Siyan: The Moonridge knights are not terribly adept at keeping them under control yet. Hopefully the DragonLords will assist them.
Merchant Siyan: Yes. Dragonlord Vilamat and his enclave are stationed there to train the knights to properly defend the town.
Merchant Siyan: They are trying to make Moonridge a safe haven for travelers. The town resides beside the large trade route that connects the north and south.
Merchant Siyan: Since so many merchants like me carry goods and supplies along it, it is important that it is kept safe or all the towns would suffer.
