The Lymcrest Labyrinth (All Versions)
Doug Digg: Greetin's traveler! Welcome to the minin' town of Lymcrest! I'm Douglas Butterscotch Tummybundle Digg Jr... But you can call me Doug.
Doug Digg: Do you want to explore the labyrinth, <Character>? Be careful down there... if you get lost, it may be years before you get found.
- The Lymcrest Labyrinth
Doug Digg: Alright, where do you want to start?
Doug Digg: Sure, I got a few minutes to chat. What do you want to know?
- Who are you?
Doug Digg: I'm Doug Digg. Lymcrest has been my home as long as I can remember. My family moved here 89 years ago when I was just a pebble.
Doug Digg: I'm the one who uncovered the door to the labyrinth a few days ago while followin' a particularly rich vein of samsonite.
Doug Digg: Most of the other miners, both human and dwarven, are too frightened to go down there, but not me! I've never met a cave I didn't like.
Doug Digg: I made it all the way down to the second floor. It's toughter than it looks, hero. If you want to neat my record, you're welcome to try!
Doug Digg: Until recently we were a happy little minin' town, where humans and dwarves worked together to make our town great.
Doug Digg: We are very different races but none of us ever let that get in the way of gettin' the job done... and we all love what we do.
Doug Digg: Minin' is hard and dangerous work, but everyone here has a very special connection to the earth. It's hard not to when you wear dirt all day.
Doug Digg: Then, the dark times started. Suddenly, all the elementals went nuts and the river caught fire and wouldn't go out.
Doug Digg: It has't been easy for us. WE ship ore and stone to every town and smithy in Alteon's kingdom! People are countin' on us!
Doug Digg: Let me tell ya, it ain't easy pannin' for gold and silver when you're up do your knees in fire.
Doug Digg: We also need to the river to power the smeltin' plant. You and Warlic have hlped a great deal but if somethin' doesn't change soon...
Doug Digg: This town, and all the minin' families here will have to pack up and leave. The town of Lymcrest will just dry up and die.
Doug Digg: Aye, I know the Blue Mage. He's a friend of Lymcrest...always has been. In fact, he's a bit of a local hero.
Doug Digg: Until you showed up, he was the only one who would come to help us with the elementals. If not for him, things would be much worse.
Doug Digg: Whenever he came to town for supplies he would always have a kind word for everyone he met.
Doug Digg: He may seem a little tight-laced from time to time, but he's got a heart the size of a boulder under these robes.
Doug Digg: Warlic has a knack with the elements. He can freeze fire, and confure rocks out of thin air.
Doug Digg: I've never seen someone with power of the elementals like he has.
Doug Digg: I'm just glad that he's on our side! You too! As long as you both stand with us, Lymcrest has hope!
Doug Digg: A while ago there was a young human named Xan who lived here. He always had a talent for magic.
Doug Digg: He was always a pain...always actin' like he was better then those around him.
Doug Digg: Last I heard, he was settin' off for the magic school in Swordhaven. You don't think this pyromancer is the same Xan, do you?
Doug Digg: Am I the first dwarf that you've ever met? I ain't suprised. We tent to keep to ourselves.
Doug Digg: You humans seem to keep to the topside, unless you're spelunkin' for treasure or some cave dragon stole your beloved.
Doug Digg: There's a whole world down there that you've barely scratched the surface of.
Doug Digg: Maybe one day your travels will take you to one of the great Dwarven kingdoms, and you'll see the wonders deep beneath Lore's crust.
Doug Digg: Let me know if you're plannin' a trip. My cousin Brollybrap is an undertravel agent. He'll get you a great deal!
Set Home Town
Doug Digg: You want to make Lymcrest your home? We'll make a miner our of you yet <Character>!
Doug Digg: Your all set!
Return to Lymcrest
Doug Digg: How ya doin'? We don't get too many visitors 'round these parts.
Doug Digg: Hmm? Do I know ya?
Doug Digg: Wait...<Character>?
Doug Digg: Haha, it's been too long!
Doug Digg: What brings you to Lymcrest?
Doug Digg: Hmm... you should come along to my place.
Doug Digg: We've got some catching up to do!
Doug Digg: So, Lim sent you, huh? Figures that shut-in wouldn't have heard anythin' about us!
Doug Digg: But man! Frozen for so many years!
Doug Digg: Ah, well, I s'pose things have changed a bit since the Rose came along.
Doug Digg: They harvested a lot of our resources a while back.
Doug Digg: Soon afterwards, all the remainin' miners left, too. Didn't think there was anything left to mine.
Doug Digg: The town's been empty ever since.
Doug Digg: No, no-don't worry, <Character>.
Doug Digg: People think Lymcrest is all but barren at this point.
Doug Digg: But what they don't realize...is that we've got all the resources we could ever need, right here.
Doug Digg: All we've gotta do...is dig a little deeper.
Doug Digg: Oh, I don't believe ya'll two have met!
Doug Digg: This is Lyra, my beautiful wife!
Doug Digg: Of course!
Doug Digg: You didn't meet her all those years ago 'cause she was on some envoy missions for the Dwarven Kingdoms.
Doug Digg: She's an important person, y'know!
Doug Digg: Come to think of it, our daughter should be home soon, too!
Doug Digg: Don't worry about it, sweetheart! We'll get it fixed up in a jiffy.
Doug Digg: You know my daughter?
Doug Digg: So...you're probably wonderin' how I have a daughter, and why she's not a dwarf!
Doug Digg: Well, it all started about sixteen years ago...
Doug Digg: Well, ya see, that's when the first...incidents started happening.
Doug Digg: With the elements.
Doug Digg: And after that...well, you know the rest.
Doug Digg: But anyway!
Doug Digg: I was busy discussin' the schematics of the tunnel one day, when I heard a cryin' sound comin' from the forest nearby.
Doug Digg: And wouldn't ya know it! Someone had left a baby alone in the bushes!
Doug Digg: A'course, one thing led to another.
Doug Digg: We kept waitin' for her real parents to come back, of course.
Doug Digg: But no one would claim her. And people just kept movin' out of Lymcrest.
Doug Digg: And it was the best decision of our lives!
Doug Digg: And once things started getting worse, with Xan an' all, I sent her off with Lyra.
Doug Digg: But enough of that! Now, who wants pie?
Doug Digg: I can't complain! It's all I'd ever ask for.
Doug Digg: But...umm...
Doug Digg: We have a favor to ask of you, <Character>.
Doug Digg: We know it's sudden, but...
Doug Digg: She's been real excited ever since she came back from that tournament in Swordhaven.
Doug Digg: Well, not before me and Lyra gave her a stern talking-to, a'course.
Doug Digg: But...it made us realize. We can't provide for her here anymore.
Doug Digg: Supplies are running low, and dwarves...well, we can survive on rocks.
Doug Digg: And with all the travellin' she's been doin', it only cemented our decision.
Doug Digg: And after what you did and Warlic did for us, we'd trust either of ya.
Doug Digg: Falwynn, sweetie? Cookie bear?
Doug Digg: Your mother and I...well, we've decided...
Doug Digg: We want ya to go with <Character>.
Doug Digg: Hmm?
Doug Digg: Oh, <Character>! How are ya? Having a belter?
Doug Digg: Certainly got more than one. On what subject?
Doug Digg: Not sure you would ken too much while readin' some of the books written by my kin though....
Doug Digg: Hmmm...
Doug Digg: Oh, I know!
Doug Digg: It just so happens I wrote a little script myself for the Blue Mage himself a while ago, but he never asked for it after.
Doug Digg: It should be just what you're lookin' for!
