«Scene: Kabroz and his undead minions»
«You»: That's it, Kabroz! Your scheming stops here!
Kabroz: I don...*Achoo* think so.... My magic will *Achoo* put an end to you...
«You»: Are... you okay Kabroz? You sound kinda sick. I don't think I've ever seen a moglin with a cold before.
Kabroz: Don't *cough* change the subject. Of course we get *Achoo* sick... it is much rarer due to our healing natures, but when a cold actually gets through it is all that much worse!
Kabroz: Now stand aside, «You», or I will have to do something you might regret... and I will find very fun!
«You»: Knock it off, Kabroz, before you make yourself sicker. I'll go get Zorbak and you can get some chicken soup or something.
Kabroz: Do you think I'm *Achoo* two years old?! It's silly adventurers like you who run around in bunny jammies with slippers and lame *Achoo* commemorative T-Shirts!
Kabroz: I am a master of *Achoo* dark powers FAR beyond your limited comprehension and I *ACHOO* will --
Zorbak: Come along, Kabroz... The soup is ready!
Kabroz: Zorbak, what did I *ACHOO* TELL you about interrupting me?! *ACHOO* ... Fine. But it'd better be Mother's. And YOU! We'll finish this *ACHOO* later!!
Zorbak, Kabroz and his undead minions leave
«You»: ... *achoo* ... oh greheat... I c'ut his culd.
«Scene: Battleon Inn»
«You»: He mucked meh, Yulhg*achoo*ar. I deed a armor far more ubear add fearsum dan usual if I am going to be taken seriously wit dis cold.
Yulgar: Something u... I see. I am not the smith for you. I have only ever known one smith mad enough to make what you desire, but... the cost might be quite high...
«You»: No cost is too high... *achoo* What do I need to *cough* gather?
Yulgar: ... Socks.
«You»: Did you just say "socks"?!?
Hans: Oh no... not him... Yes, he said "socks."
Yulgar: Not just any socks will do. They must be the ultimate socks. That will just be the first part as well.
Yulgar: You can expect to be sent on a few pointless, unrelated and exceedingly difficult expeditions if you even want him to consider making what you want.
Yulgar: And then, of course, you will have to pay a pretty penny, too...
Hans: Isn't the point of going on such a long expedition to earn the set?
Yulgar: Why are you eternally asking silly questions? Of course not. The purpose of going on the quest is just to get the privilege of basking in his glory.
Yulgar: Until you do that you cannot possibly make a request.
«You»: Well, SOCKS it is, then! Now *achoo* where would I go to get some socks?
Search for socks!
You play a mini-game where you navigate through the whole of Battleon to find the socks. You can click on various spots to see if there is a sock there.
When you clicked on the correct spot...
Warlic: Never sneak into an archmage's magic shop and look through his stuff! Now, you must SMELL THE SOCK OF DOOM as your punishment!!!
A green glowing socks flies in. Click on it and the message "Smelly green sock! Yay!!!" appears!
Warlic: Ewwww... You actually touched the sock of doom! Your magic must be very, VERY strong...
Warlic: However, mine is MUCH STRONGER. I am an archmage -- the most powerful archmage. So if you want the sock, I'd like you to do me a favor.
Warlic: Go slay a couple pesky evil deer in Greenguard Forest. The blasted things have been eating in my grove of Sudsy Lichen, one of my favorite spell components.
Warlic: Go get rid of them and I won't vaporize you with a flick of my wrist.
You got it!

Full Heal after every battle
«Scene: Warlic's Shop»
Warlic: Nice work, friend. Now take my sock and leave, before I change my mind...
«Scene: Battleon Inn»
Hans: But how do I show her that I care? She only barely notices me.
The Eternal: USE THE FLORIST, young blacksmith.
Hans: The FLORIST?
The Eternal: Most young ladies appreciate flowers.
As you enter, the Eternal disappears.
«You»: Were you talking to *choo* sumwine?
Hans: Uh-- Just myself!
«You»: Right, so I have gotten the socks. What is that strange box doing here?
Yulgar: I will bring him the socks. Now go and get him a shiny rubber duckie.
Yulgar enters the phone booth
Yulgar: I have the socks for you.
???: Perfect! Now what was it «You» wanted again?
Yulgar: Well, I'm not sure I really get it, but "something totally..."
The phone booth door closes
«You»: Did he say I deeded a *sniffle* rubber ducky?
Hans: He likes them when he takes his bath.
«You»: Dis is silly and pointless. *Achoo*
Hans: Do you want the set or not? Now go get a rubber duckie!
«You»: Where would I find one of dose?!
Hans: Well, if I were you, I'd go check with Aquella the Water Elf. After all, she should know everything that has to do with water. I think she is at Azma Lake...
«Scene: Azma Lake»
«You»: *sniffles* Aquella! I ab on a quest of da highest importance! I deed your help!
Aquella: Oh my! What is it?? What can I do??
«You»: I DEED A RUBBER DUCKY! *achoo!*
Aquella: Okay, follow me. But this had better be WORTH it.
«You»: Worth it? How tough cad getting a *ACHOO* rubber ducky be??
Aquella: This isn't just ANY rubber ducky. It is the ONLY rubber ducky in existence! Now follow me-- into the lake!
Aquella replaces your guest slot
All are random Water monsters.
Full heal after the first, third, and fifth battle.
You receive the rubber ducky
Aquella: The rubber ducky is YOURS! Take good care of it -- It might save the world someday!
Aquella is removed from your guest slot
«Scene: Battleon Inn»
???: Ah.... you brought my duck. Just in time, too; I am about to take a bath, if I can get number 42 working properly.
???: Let's see. I think THIS is the right vial.
Purple fumes begin to fill up the room and you collapse. Shortly after, you wake up.
Yulgar: ...you WERE talking to someone Hans. Don't play dumb. ...Oh, it looks like «You» is waking up!
«You»: ...what happened? Hey, my cold is gone!
Hans: CYSERO happened.
Yulgar: He has left to do other things. He did however say that I could give you the armor you asked for if you completed this final task. He's even working on a weapon and shield to go with it.
«You»: Final task? You mean finding the Sock of Doom and the only rubber ducky in existence wasn't enough? I hope this armor is REALLY fearsome...
Yulgar: Yes, just one final task. Honestly, I'm amazed, he's letting you off easy. Then again, you did test his catatonia smoke for him.
Yulgar: Cysero needs you to find a brainfish so he can finish one of his experiments on animal intellect.
Hans: Apparently these fish are geniuses, and they come by it naturally. He was so amused he made one even smarter than usual.
Hans: ...Unfortunately, it was so smart it escaped.
Yulgar: Cysero hopes that the experiments will give us insight into both the Zard and Sneevil issues.
«You»: I see.
Yulgar: Speaking of Zards and Sneevils...
Yulgar: He says the brainfish ended up in a pond in an encampment far far in the western half of the Smoke Mountains. It is one of the last Sneevil outposts this far east.
Yulgar: There also are some rather fierce and highly intelligent zards in that area.
A hologram of Cysero appears
Yulgar: Ah, this is your benefactor! «You», meet Cysero. Cysero, meet «You»!
Cysero: The socks and rubber ducky were PERFECT, «You»!
Hans: Your reputation precedes him.
Hans: Given all of the creatures there are showing advanced development, could it be something natural?
«You»: Like what?
Cysero: It could be something in the water.
Yulgar: Fight your way to the brainfish and then convince him to come back here.
«You»: Can't I just fight him and drag him back?
Yulgar: Well, you might need to fight him to convince him to cooperate.
Cysero: -- But I can't study him if he's DEAD! Bring him to me alive if you want what you asked for.
The hologram of Cysero disappears.
«You»: ... REALLY fearsome. And there'd better be a pet with that weapon and shield. I mean, I'm already cured, but I'm this far in...
Yulgar: No cold feet allowed here, friend. YOU called in the Mad Weaponsmith, YOU get to hunt for his brainfish. He's been working hard for you. I wouldn't disappoint him.
«You»: Why not?
Yulgar: This man once turned a Guardian Tower into a fish.
«You»: A whole, big... Oh. *gulp* So, west half of the Smoke Mountains, you say?

«You»: Flying Brainfish!
???: How astute of you! But you OFFEND me with that absurd generalization. I am not just any old flying brainfish -- I am TED.
«You»: Oh-- sorry for the, uh, insensitivity I showed toward your individuality. Now, please come along with me. I have to take you back to your creator.
Ted: Why, I am just beginning to discover my independence and assert my dominance over the natural realm! I CANNOT be bothered with responding to every whim of my master.
«You»: Great! Just the attitude I was hoping for! Now let's fight!!
Ted: Just so we are clear on this, I am only going with you because I have determined through many rounds of deep logical thought that it would make Cysero feel good for me to do so.
«You»: So the fact that I beat the pulp of you doesn't matter?
Ted: No, not at all.
«Scene: Battleon Inn»
«You»: That was crazy!
Ted: You are telling me... anyway, I told her if she could not figure out differentials, then we really did not have anything in common. Fish like her are always after the bad boys--
Ted: -- like the salmon. Just because they are macho and swim upstream for romance. I told her, nothing good ever comes of fish who drop out of the school.
Cysero's hologram appears
Cysero: I think I got the pipes fixed, Yulgar. And oh, cool, you found Ted. Let me just finish this test first, and then we'll--
Ted: I think you will find that you do not want that magenta one, you want the--
The cutscene shows Cysero pouring the vial containing a magenta solution into another vial, then fumes erupt from it.
Ted: ---oh my---
The fumes spread through the whole room, and you collapse again. Shortly after, you wake up.
Yulgar: ...That is one strange story, Hans. Oh! «You» is waking up!
«You»: Where are Cysero and Ted?
Yulgar: They went somewhere to discuss philosophy.
Yulgar: He did leave what you requested... a totally ubear set. This one is patterned after a circus bear.
Hans: I like the grizzly and polar ones better.
Yulgar: Yes, but they were not quite «You»'s style. You heard earlier-- «You» likes things like bunny jammies.
«You»: Wait-- Ubear? U-BEAR?? That's not what I said!
Hans: Oh-- oh my-- you had a COLD, remember? Stuffy noses are notorious for making you sound different. Oh well, Cysero did his best! I guess you will just have to GRIN AND BEAR IT!
