Earth and Entropy
Guardian: Be ever vigilant, <Class>. Although it seems calm, the Dravir lurk amongst the darkness.
Guardian: Fortuna is waiting for you in her tent to the east. You can walk if you'd like and see the damage that the dragon has wrought or I can give you a ride.
Guardian: <Character>, just in time! I need your help!
Guardian: I just received word that Bargok has finally been trapped! That beast has been terrorizing our livestock while Gorgok lays waste to the town.
Guardian: You have to help take him down! For the safety of horses everywhere!
Ulero: Be on your guard, this area is not safe. Unless you've brought supplies or reinforcements, you shouldn't be here.
<Character>: What is going on here?
Ulero: We are holding the line. They will NOT claim Willowshire!
<Character>: Who are you defending the city from?
Ulero: The Dravir. They have seized the Northwest half of the city. Ever since that cursed dragon...
<Character>: What interest do the Dravir have with this area?
Ulero: I wish I knew, adventurer. I wish I knew. They are a fierce race.. Whatever their motives, we must not let them have their way.
Can I help?
Ulero: Talk to Guardian Fortuna, she should be in her quarters. She will know what you can do to help.
Ulero: BATTLE ON!!
Guardians: BATTLE ON!!
Guardians: BATTLE ON!!
Guardians: BATTLE ON!!
Guardian (1): Woot! Let's kick some Dravir-butt!
Guardian (2): Hey, watch your language. Kids play this gam-, er, *cough* uh, I mean there are kids running around!
Guardian (1): Kids? Where? This is the battle front, if there are kids here we've got more to worse trouble.
Guardian (2): ...
Guardian (1): ...
Guardian (1): Butt.
Guardian: Welcome to Willowshire... what's left of it.
Guardian: We are battling to save what remains. The people here, they are hungry and afraid.. however they are determined to survive.
<Character>: I am confident in the Guardians' ability. Willowshire will not be lost.
Guardian: It is our duty to uphold justice and to protect the weak. We will prevail!
The town is gone
<Character>: Willowshire is in ruins. The people here should seek refuge amongst the neighbouring towns.
Guardian: We... We must protect them. They needs us.
Guardian: We have fortified our defenses, they stand a better chance if they remain here.
Jibbley: Want to buy something?
<Character>: What kind of stuff do you sell here?
Jibbley: Whatever I can. I'm a scavenger, I've been picking through the ruins to help supply the Guardians and townsfolk.
<Character>: So you just found this stuff lying around?
Jibbley: Yup. An <Class> like you would have no fear running in and out of town, but for anyone else it's dangerous with the Dravir around.
Jibbley: So I'm stuck. I can't run to Falconreach and Moonridge for supplies so I'm searching the ruins for junk people can use.
Jibbley: Well.. Not junk per se... More like refurbished, USEFUL junk.
<Character>: ... But still junk though.
Jibbley: Look. No complaining about the merchandise, bub.
Jibbley: I'm not gonna dance the jig just to get you to buy something. Don't waste my time.
Shop - opens Jibbley's Junk shop.
Villager (1): The Dravir are too many! We must flee Willowshire!
Villager (2): The Guardians are here, they will protect us.
Villager (3): The Guardians are too few, and the battle moves closer and closer to my house every day!
Villager (4): Friend, I understand that you fear for your family. But if we flee, we will be defenseless on the roads.
Villager (4): If the Dravir are here to exterminate us, we would not stand a chance!
Villager (1): They don't care about us! If we leave they will stay and continue whatever it is they are doing.
Villager (1): We should get out of their way!
Villager (2): It's too risky. I would rather stay and fight!
Villager (3): Yes... perhaps that is best.
Villager (1): No, we should run before it's too late!
Villager (3): No, they are right. If we leave, we will surely die.
Villager (1): I... I just.. I just want my children to be safe. I trust you, if you think we are safer here then I will stay as well.
Villager (4): We must stay and help the Guardians however we can. They are risking their lives for our safety.
Villager (3): Yes. I will gather a group. No more will we hide, we must hold our ground.
Villager (3): One day, we will tell our grandchildren about our victory over the Dravir!
Guardian with Sozo
Sozo: Put together a team and sweep the city for Dravir. We must be sure the people are kept safe.
Guardian: Aye. Willowshire will sleep well tonight.
Sozo: Make it so. I am heading back to the bridge.
*Rides off towards the entrance*
Guardian Flak: Hey do you smell something? Gosh, it reeks.. I can't seem to get away from it.
Nancy Lee: Careful, I wouldn't get too close to me. I am REALLY mad at that stupid dragon! He smashed my house!!!!
Jeff: Whooo!! Look at them go!
Spinbad: Wow, that skele sure knows how to lay down a bassline!
Villager: Not too often you see a travelling necro music troupe jamming with some Guardians!
Gea: I'll say. It's so nice to hear some happy music after we come back from the front lines...
<Character>: Note to self: Keep Artix away from this place.
Zardlegs: Facebiscuit! What's up, ol' buddy?!
<Character>: .... What did you call me?!
Zardlegs: Face. Biscuit.
<Character>: Why I oughta--
Zardlegs: Whoa, hey! What? You don't remember me?
<Character>: What? No. And you better take back th-
Zardlegs: It's me, Zardlegs! Come on, you must remember me from Lolosia!
<Character>: I-I've never been to Lolosia.
Zardlegs: Oh, quit playin'. Man I miss running the seas with you n' old Captain Batgrease.
<Character>: C-Captain Batgrease?
Zardlegs: Yeah! How is he these days?
<Character>: I, uh, haven't seen him...
Zardlegs: Aww, that's too bad. I hear he finally found a cure for that unfortunate skin condition he had. Wonder what he looks like now.
<Character>: Yeah, uh..
Zardlegs: Say no more. He left you behind on one of his northern trips, didn't he? Good ol' Batgrease.. at least he is consistent!
<Character>: Yeah.. *(Unlike your brain. Stop talking!)*
Zardlegs: Well, I need to get back to work, but let me know if there's anything I can do for ya! Nice seeing you again!
<Character>: *(Oh thank goodness..)*
<Character>: Yeah, thanks. I guess.
Zardlegs: A bed for the night? Anything for you, ol' pal. It's on the house!
- Rest - fully replenishes HP and MP.
Zardlegs: Want a room for a while? Well.. I'm not supposed to reserve rooms right now, but I guess I could do that for you. Free, of course.Guardian (3): Hey guys... *snicker* This morning, Maj and I played a little joke on Flak.
Guardian (4): Hahaha, yeah!
Guardian (1): Oh?
Guardian (3): We both took turns passing gas into his helmet while he was sleeping!
Guardian (1): HAHAHAHAA!
Guardian (2): Hah!
Guardian (4): He's been trying to figure out where the smell is coming from all day! HAHAH!
Guardian (2): Hahahaha!
Guardian (1): Hahahahaa!
Guardian (3): He goes: "Hey do you smell something?" hAAhaaAhaaha!
Road to Tower
<Character>: What's going on here?
Orvin: Sorry friend, the Guardian tower is not safe at the moment. If you want to go in you'll have to talk to Guardian Fortuna.
Orvin: The Dravir are relentless.. We need to start gaining ground or I fear we may lose more than we are wiling to part with.
Ina: The library has been destroyed. All the books within have been ruined by war and fire.
Ina: All except one. How unfortunate.
Ina: Just some nonsense gossip thing. Hardly worth keeping... Why, want to read it?
- Yes - opens "Gossip Ga-Lore!" book.
Ina: Heh.. can't blame you.
Andazoth: Our house was spared! Thank you for fighting for our town!
Andazoth: I apologize, but I have nothing to offer you for your bravery.. But please.. understand that I am eternally grateful.
Villager: Oh.. but what about--
Andazoth: That's right! Yes, please accept this gift.
Andazoth: This necklace has been handed down through my family for generations, it is a precious heirloom to me, but I want you to have it.
Andazoth: I won't take no for an answer, either. Thank you, hero!
Alright. - opens Willowshire Thanks shop.
Alley Before Tent
Kolanor: There is not much left, but we will rebuild. Thank you, <Character>.
Lexalia: Come on Sazalea. We can do this. We'll return Willowshire to its former glory one step at a time!
Guardian Fortuna: Hail, <Character>. The Dragon's army has been driven back, thanks to you. But there is still work to be done...
Guardian Fortuna: Gorgok was defeated and most of the town was saved! It's unbelievable that you beat him.
Guardian Fortuna: Even though the Dravir continue besiege the town I will continue to fight for Willowshire.
Guardian Fortuna: I will not rest until the town has been retaken and the Green Dragon's minions are defeated.
Guardian Fortuna: I will not rest until the town is ours once again!
As original dialogue, with additional options:
Guardian Fortuna: After Gorgok's last defeat it flew away while its Dravir kept attacking anyone they could find.
Guardian Fortuna: They burned our fields and our homes and set up a camp in our old town square. Most of the survivors went into hiding.
Guardian Fortuna: Those of us who refused to run set up a resistance movement.
Guardian Fortuna: We've been holding out for King Alteon to send us reinforcements but the Dravir have stopped every messenger that we have sent to Swordhaven.
Guardian Fortuna: It took some time but we discovered that Gorgok was in a healing sleep in the hills near here.
Guardian Fortuna: The dragon is heavily guarded by Dravir while it sleeps... not that we could hope to kill it even in its sleep.
Guardian Fortuna: We heard that you were showing up and the Priestess sent us a magic message telling us about you and your dragon, <Dragon>.
Guardian Fortuna: Her magic must be too subtle or too strong for the Dravir to block her messages to us.
Guardian Fortuna: We believe that you have the power to defeat Gorgok or at least put it back into its healing coma. Will you help us?
- Gorgok? - see 'Gorgok?' dialogue
Guardian Fortuna: I hoped that I would never see the day, but Gorgok has returned.
Guardian Fortuna: We've been trying to rebuild since the dragon's first attack but the Dravir that it controls destroy things as fast as we can build them.
Guardian Fortuna: Its wounds from the last battle have healed. It has grown too strong for an average hero or even a guardian to defeat...
Guardian Fortuna: ...and it is preparing to finish Willowshire off with its renewed strength.
Guardian Fortuna: We will never find peace until Gorgok is destroyed!
Guardian Fortuna: It will be a hard fight but even if you don't finish Gorgok, any small defeat will cause the Dravir to fall back.
Guardian Fortuna: That will give us some hope of taking our town and our Guardian Tower back! Will you help us?
How can I help?
Guardian Fortuna: Fight with us, <Character>. With your help we may take back more of the town.
The Earth Orb
Guardian Fortuna: There is more work to be done, <Character>.
- Dravir Siege - see 'Talk' dialogue.
- Gorgok? - see 'Gorgok?' dialogue.
- Guardian Tower?
Guardian Fortuna: Gorgok may have been defeated but he still lives. Many of his minions rushed into the Guardian Tower during the battle.
Guardian Fortuna: Whatever they're after must still be down there...and maybe they haven't found it yet.
<Character>: ...All this destruction for something hidden in the tower? It must be amazingly valuable...or powerful.
Guardian Fortuna: I hate to ask you this after all you've done for us already..but I think you're the only one who can get this job done...
Guardian Fortuna: Please <Character>, Go into our Guardian Tower and find what those Dravirs are after before they get it. Who knows what could happen if they get it first!
- A Dark Place
Guardian Fortuna: Valorus?!
Guardian Fortuna: Whatever happens, <Character>, make sure the Secret of the Thorn is safe!
- The Whole Truth
Guardian Fortuna: <Character>, you've returned! What happened?
- The Temple
Guardian Fortuna: The Earth Orb is in two halves?! How will we ever find the Nature Orb after so long!?
- What's Mine Is Mine
Guardian Fortuna: Follow the Rare Item Hunters, <Character>. If we have any hope of finding the lost half... it's with them.
- The Map Room
Guardian Fortuna: Find out any information you can, <Character>! I've learned even the strangest things can yield information to a quest.
- Key Orb
Guardian Fortuna: Work quickly, <Character>... the closer you come to finding the Nature half of the Orb...
Guardian Fortuna: The more likely you are to draw attention to your quest. Be on the lookout for the minions of our enemies.
Guardian Fortuna: Be safe as you look for the adopted guardian of the Key to the Earth Orb!
Guardian Fortuna: Who knows what the full power of the Earth Orb might unlock?
Guardian Fortuna: I fear what would happen if Gorgok had the Orb's full power.
Guardian Fortuna: If the stone dragon combines forces... what is already a difficult battle would be, I fear, impossible.
Guardian Fortuna: The full power of the Earth Orb could be devastating in the wrong hands.
- Entropy Strikes
Guardian Fortuna: What has happened, <Character>?
- Nature's Keeper
Guardian Fortuna: Where has the Nature Orb been all this time?
- Surehunter Woes
Guardian Fortuna: Do what you have to get the Earth Orb back, <Character>! Before Gorgok... before the Entropy Dragon can get it's claw on it!
- Earth and Entropy
Guardian Fortuna: Who knows what the treasure hunter can do with the power of the Earth Orb! You have to recover it before the Entropy Dragon!
- Hidden Blades - teleports player to Hidden Blades.
- Thank you!
Guardian Fortuna: Thank you, <Character>. Even through the Earth Orb is lost, we still have our town.
Guardian Fortuna: Lord Valorus worked hard with our weaponsmith to craft these special weapons in thanks.
