The Proclamation

???: Psst!

???: Hey, over here.

???: I remember you, hero. From the broadcast. Turns out, you're capable.
???: Not really a fan of crowds though, eh?

Khvorost: Khvorost. People call me many things. A pirate, a savior, a smuggler... a chaosweaver... but for today, I'm your only friend in this city!

Khvorost: I'm full of surprises.

Khvorost: Now, I didn't say I was a charity.

Khvorost: A favor. I help you escape, you owe me a favor. That I collect in the future. Nothing horrific. Nothing to disturb that delicate palate of yours.
Khvorost: Maybe I never collect!

Khvorost: Just... a favor.
Khvorost: I just simply love collecting favours. It's the most valuable currency in this day and age. How's that sound?

Khvorost: Blah blah. Take my hand. And don't let go. We're about to phase through planes. We wouldn't want for you to get spliced! Or stuck.
Khvorost: Or— hm. No, that would actually be interesting.

Khvorost: Ah, don't worry. I'm very skilled in soulblinking.
Khvorost: Although I've never done it with another person!

Khvorost: Off we go!

Khvorost: Oh dear.

Coming Home

Khvorost: Hehe, uh... whoops! It'd seem soulblinking with another person is harder than it looks!

Khvorost: Well, I did get you out of Nieboheim!

Khvorost: As do I! Let me just—

Khvorost: <Class>, I got you into this, let me fix it!

If you select the 'Summon Your Dragon!' option:
    Khvorost: Hahahaha!
    Khvorost: You have a dragon! A real dragon!
    Khvorost: You are full of surprises!
    Khvorost: ...Please tell it not to eat me.

    Khvorost: Ouch.

    Khvorost: <Character>, this is Ruuma. He's— he's uuh...

    Khvorost: Isn't he remarkable?
    Khvorost: Always, always, looking out for my best interests.
    Khvorost: It's true, though. The Magesterium probably won't be happy with us. But at least, at least, you, uh, pulled your dragon out outside of the city.
    Khvorost: Imagine if you did that trick in the city!

    Khvorost: A ship! Fancy!
If you select the 'Trust Khvorost' option:
    Khvorost: Ruuma!

    Khvorost: Could you be a dear? Help us out?

    Khvorost: As you can see, my friend and I here are about to die.

    Khvorost: I don't suppose you could be bothered to save us? Both, preferably.

    Khvorost: Of course, of course!

    Khvorost: Please hurry.

    Khvorost: See, see, <Character>? I told you I'd fix this!

    Khvorost: Thanks, Ruuma!

    Khvorost: I don't suppose you could—

    Khvorost: Isn't he? Absolutely reliable.
    Khvorost: You know, I'm not actually sure how much time we have. Before this bubble, uh, pops.
If you select the 'Summon Aegis!' option:
    Khvorost: An Elemental Spirit! You are full of surprises, <Character>!
    Khvorost: Hi, I'm Khvorost! People call me many things. A pirate, a savior, a smugg—

    Khvorost: Oh uh, hi Ruuma. It's not what it looks like, I swear!

    Khvorost: Hey, hey! Ruuma, are you just going to let that elemental spirit do that? To me?


    Khvorost: Remarkable! Where to now, hero who is so full of surprises?

    Khvorost: A ship! Brilliant!
Khvorost: That. Was. Amazing!
Khvorost: You truly are a Hero! Watching— watching you in combat was breathtaking.

Khvorost: Me?!
Khvorost: Oh, no, no. I could never.

Khvorost: Never! That— that would be illegal!

Khvorost: I mean, I mean, I got you out! The rest was on you!
Khvorost: Ruuma seemed busy too. I didn't want to intrude... And, and you didn't seem like you needed any assistance.

Khvorost: You can... call him that, yes!
Khvorost: Ruuma, the Elemental Spirit of Arrogance!

Khvorost: ...
Khvorost: Mazurek?

Khvorost: Hello again, Maz! Lookin' good. I can see the storms did wonders for your hairstyle.

Khvorost: A ph— Just a phase? You wound me!

Khvorost: It was at least a week!

Khvorost: Ha! About that!
Khvorost: I sail solo now! Saving people, breaking the law, you know, same old dashingly handsome rogueish business!

Khvorost: Why?

Khvorost: I... will... I will think about that.


Khvorost: So. About that favor, <Character>?

Khvorost: It, it was a life or death situation! I had to offer my services. You know how it is.

Khvorost: You know, you know what? I think we're even. I get this wonderful free cruise around the seas, after all.

Khvorost: Come now, Maz, you're joking right? I didn't even get a chance to pack—

Khvorost: But, but my collection of vintage Murshrom Brew! My miniatures! All of my—

Khvorost: I... I see.

Khvorost: Hey, hey <Character>, do they have Murshrom Brew in the barbarous— sorry, the Land of Dragons?

Khvorost: That's... that's...

Khvorost: A city— a city of weavers? In the Land of Dragons?

Khvorost: Other weavers. That sounds nice. I could, I could maybe live there. Other chaosweavers...

Khvorost: It is, it is a dashing, daring tale! And since you've requested it, I will so very graciously share my epic of pain, loss, recovery, and skulduggery!

Khvorost: Hmph. So be it.
Khvorost: Well, well, it started when my good—for—nothing parents abandoned me on the steps of Edelia.
Khvorost: Swaddled me up. Left me on the ground. Never saw 'em again.

Khvorost: Tis true, tis true. A poor babe, alone and forgotten, taken in by the school of weaving.

Khvorost: Okay, okay, I was actually a bit older. Old enough to attend and board. But I never did see my parents again. Don't know what happened.
Khvorost: Edelia was a good place. If just a bit... boring. I mean, you couldn't blame me, really.
Khvorost: Living, learning, working and playing, all in the same place? It was just. So. Boring.

Khvorost: I mean, I mean, seriously. They wouldn't even let us out without a chaperone. It was just the same thing day after day.
Khvorost: I needed some excitement.

Khvorost: Can, can you imagine? Just classes and chores day in and day out. Anyone would have gone—

Khvorost: Hm? Oh, oh, as I was saying. I was expelled.

Khvorost: Now, NOW, you want me to give you all the salacious details? Well, I certainly can't resist.
Khvorost: There was this country kid. From some family, from around Mortem, I think? He, well, I don't remember his name. I gave him some silly dare.
Khvorost: Didn't think the kid would actually try it.
Khvorost: Well, well... he did.
Khvorost: Broke his way into the headmaster's office. Went ahead and started trying to weave with the headmaster's spiritlooms.
Khvorost: As you can imagine, he got expelled on the spot.
Khvorost: Of course, they kicked me out after that, too.

Khvorost: Oh yes. Didn't help that I had a disciplinary sheet longer than I was tall. Simpler times.

Khvorost: Was that his name? Pasty looking annoying kid, red hair?

Khvorost: Wait, wait up! Did I say something wrong?

Khvorost: Now, now look, I was just a kid! I was bored! If I'd have known that he would mean so much to you—

Khvorost: <Character>? Some help? Oh, oh! This can be the favor you owe me!

Khvorost: <Character>! Make her promise!

Khvorost: I do... I do feel guilty. Now that I'm older.
Khvorost: I've helped smuggle people out of the Shapeless Empire. Bring them down to the shore. To boats like Maz's.
Khvorost: I've seen, I've seen families torn. Torn over all manner of issues. From forgetting some trinket. To choosing who to leave behind.
Khvorost: I know what I did— I know I ruined that boy's future.

Khvorost: Now that, that is an interesting question! I taught myself!

Khvorost: Well, well, I had the basics of soulweaving from Edelia. And I am extraordinarily talented.
Khvorost: It took much, much hardship, though. I couldn't stay in Tkaanie.
Khvorost: But in the Shapeless Empire... I had to live... uncomfortably. To avoid the Magesterium. As you saw— it takes just one.
Khvorost: One slip-up, and you're food for the Shapeless.
Khvorost: I had to be the best. To survive, see. And with time, I think that may have rubbed off on my dear Ruuma. My soulally.

Khvorost: He is, but arrogance comes in many forms. Most of the time now, he's off on his own.
Khvorost: Doing whatever he does in the Plane of Elemental Spirits. But he does come to my aid. When necessary.
Khvorost: Isn't, isn't that right, Ruuma?

Khvorost: He cares. Really! I'd be— I'd be lost without him.
Khvorost: Anyway. Anyway. I got good at hiding from the Magesterium. Or maybe they stopped looking.
Khvorost: I made my living as a smuggler. Helped people out of the Empire.
Khvorost: It was, it was a good life. Always exciting. Always watching my back. Never a boring moment.
Khvorost: Then, then, one day, I helped some foreign hero escape the city in a hurry, and well, here we are.

Khvorost: Yes, yes, well. I do what I must to survive.
Khvorost: Speaking of which. I'd— I would like to claim that favor from you.

Khvorost: If you don't mind. Could...
Khvorost: Could you tell me about Tomix?

Khvorost: I like a good story.

Unvoided Ravenloss (Book 3)
(after Loose Ends and Khvorost)

Khvorost: Yes, yes, well, I figured people here would have known you, <Character>, and we are friends, after all!

  • What's up?
    Khvorost: Why on, why on Lore would we name it that?! That place was a drag! I want nothing, nothing to do with it!
    Khvorost: How about... The Dark Cave Murshrom Academy?!

    Khvorost: Nope, nope! Already bored with it! Way, waaay too boring!

    Khvorost: That's... that's a pretty name.

  • School?
    Khvorost: Me too! Me too! I'm proof of it too!
