Groft Nyori: I'm so sorry, ma'am. Our last scouting party didn't find any sign of your husband.
Brunhilda: He was right behind me when we fled... He can't be gone. He can't be!
Groft Nyori: We're not giving up, but we need to be realistic about our expectations...
Brunhilda: Maybe you're not looking the right way. Maybe the Dragonslayers can help more. I don't... I can't believe...
Groft Nyori: We're doing all we can, ma'am, including working with the Dragonslayers.
Brunhilda: Then... then maybe I should go take a look myself! I'm not giving up!
Groft Nyori: Nor are we, ma'am. Nor are we.
Vind Soldier: Hi, <Character>. We're still setting up camp. It's probably safer for everyone if our quarters are outside the fortress.
Vind Soldier: Hi, <Character>. We're just sorting supplies for the camps! You can find them by heading back around the walls.
DragonLord: Welcome, <Character>, <Dragon>. Watch yourselves inside the fortress. These are tumultuous times.
Captain Lestrad: First the refugees, now elves and the Rose running around…
Captain Lestrad: This is a fortress, not a theme park. I've got my eye on them. All of them.
Captain Lestrad: We might have decommissioned the lava pit, but the prison still has plenty of room…
Rhyn's House Shop
Rhyn: Welcome- Ah! You're... You're <Character>! I've heard stories about you! Please, let me know if anything in the shop that catches your eye!
Outside the Hatchery
Lounging DL: When Dragonsgrasp was forced to land, the Great One provided shelter and safety.
Lounging DL: And so, when the refugees came to us, we followed the Great One's example.
Lounging DL: Er, the Great One? It's a metaphor. For the mountain we're in. Very metaphorical.
Tanis: Welcome to the Hatchery, <Character>!
Tanis: No, you can't eat the eggs, not even a small one, and no, you can't pet the baby dragons.
Tanis: ...Sorry we're pretty popular with the refugee kids. And they ask a lot of silly questions.
Tanis: Anyway, with the help of the Dragonslayers, we're raising a new generation of dragons here, in safety.
Tanis: I just hope the babies turn out okay. There's a lot of people around, and not much room to spread their wings.
Tanis: But we will endure no matter what. Just as dragons and DragonLords always have.
DragonLord: The refugees from Dragesvard wasted no time getting to work! I've never seen the fortress so busy and bustling!
Ingaberg: Olaf, for the last time, you can't just jump into the fountains like that!
Olaf: Well, maybe if they had proper pools like civilized people, we'd be able to have a real pool party!
Ingaberg: You'll live without a pool for however long you need to. You don't need pool parties to live!
Olaf: Pools are an integral part of Dragesvard culture! Maybe I could, I don't know, find a water dragon and squeeze it?
Ingaberg: Sure, then it'll squeeze you. With its teeth. And you'll be dead. And still poolless.
Olaf: I just... they were good times. To take our minds off the bad.
Ingaberg: They really weren't. You were the only one who liked them.
Olaf: Astrid liked them too!
Ingaberg: But Astrid's not the one I caught splashing around in the fountain like a child. Come now, let's get you cleaned up and dried off.
Intersection Between Central Intersection and Deployment Area
Guard DL: I'm sorry, <Character>. No entry allowed, even for you.
Reni and Feldspar's Armory and Shop
Reni: Welcome to Dragonsgrasp's premier armory and forge! And... clothier., Feldspar: Welcome to Feldspar's Famous Clothier!
Reni: I don't have any problems sharing the armory with Feldspar, no.
Reni: He just... showed up one day. Didn't even have a Dragon Amulet.
Reni: Captain Lestrad threw a fit, of course. Even tried to interrogate him.
Reni: Can't say I'm too pleased about sharing the armory with him. Not because he's an elf, I mean, but it's just... less space for me.
Reni: But space is hard to find in the fortress. Harder now with all the refugees.
Reni: But that's none of your concern. Can I interest you in a new helm, perhaps?
Feldspar: Yes, I am an elf, yes, it is strange that I am here, and no, I don't intend on leaving just yet.
Feldspar: Sorry, the usual questions I get. I'm sure you're a perfectly pleasant customer.
Feldspar: I heard about the DragonLords, you see, and saw a wonderful opportunity to help some... fashion challenged peoples.
Feldspar: Ah, but they are getting used to me. If you'd like to sample some of my wares, feel free to enter the dressing room to the right of the counter.
Forge Shop - opens Dragonsgrasp Armory shop.
Artifact Upgrade - opens DragonLord Artifacts shop.
DragonLord: Is that refugee staring at me? He's kind of cute. But what would my dragon think?
Norsk: I'm so grateful to the DragonLords for letting us stay here!
Bjorn: Are you? And what are they doing for us?
Bjorn: You think this chicken went and cooked itself and its eggs? I don't think some high and mighty DragonLord did.
Norsk: I think you've had too much moglinberry juice.
Bjorn: Oh sure, they let us in, but they're just using us. Taking advantage.
Norsk: They're providing us shelter and sustenance. The least we can do is help out with some odd jobs.
Sven: Never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad to be out of all that ice and snow. Maybe I'll stay here after it's all over.
Gossipy DL: I'm telling you, my dragon and I both saw it on our flight in!
Skeptical DL: You're not special. The Great One holds many secrets, but they're not for you.
Gossipy DL: Then how do you explain this bump I got when my dragon and I crashed?
Skeptical DL: Not enough fresh air? Why don't you go and help set up some refugee tents after this?
Gossipy DL: Fine, but only if you're coming with me. It's always so awkward...
Skeptical DL: Sure. Awkward or no, the Great One will provide.
Hudson: Welcome! Find a seat if you can, and we'll take care of you. Although, we're a bit crowded these days!
DragonLord: If you look directly up from here, you can see the sky through the mountain's crater.
DragonLord: Sometimes, it's hard not to miss soaring through the air.
Helga: Oh, I don't know about letting in all these elves. There's hardly enough room as it is!
Helga: I even heard there was a moglin scuttling about! How dreadful!
DragonLord: I'm just here to keep the peace, ma'am.
DragonLord: Please respect the refugees in their time of recovery.
Gerda: We tried to start a garden but were told we had to work in a “designated farming area of the Great One”.
Gerda: They have so many strict rules here!
Gerda: I suppose we should be thankful for the shelter, but the DragonLords could relax once in a while!
Sir Baumbard: Welcome, <Character>. It's good to see you again.
Who are you?
Sir Baumbard: It is I, Sir Baumbard, and this is Glumbert, my dragon companion. You... don't remember us?
Sir Baumbard: I am one of the elite order of DragonLords. We... were protectors of this realm.
Sir Baumbard: At one point we would not have hesitated to answer the call of those who needed us.
Sir Baumbard: After the Rose came to power, Captain Lestrad led a campaign for Dragonsgrasp and the order to retreat.
Sir Baumbard: Most saw the Rose's actions as a political conflict, which Dragonsgrasp has always tried to withdraw from.
Sir Baumbard: I, and others, such as young Mritha, disagreed.
Sir Baumbard: We see the threat that the Rose poses. No offense to your... allies.
Sir Baumbard: When the Rose started hunting dragons, even then, it took much effort to bargain a treaty with the Dragonslayers.
Sir Baumbard: Mritha left to join the Vind in a rather... explosive fashion. Her examples led to a few others renouncing the order.
Sir Baumbard: I stayed in order to oversee our work with the Dragonslayers, and to hopefully convince more DragonLords to take action.
Sir Baumbard: Your arrival can only bode well in that endeavor. Your and <Dragon>'s heroism is inspirational to many DragonLords.
Sir Baumbard: This is the fortress of the order of DragonLords. While once it... soared through the sky, it is thankfully now back on solid ground.
Sir Baumbard: Well, solid enough.
Sir Baumbard: Joining the order of DragonLords requires only a Dragon Amulet... and finding Dragonsgrasp.
Sir Baumbard: While new DragonLords are always welcome, we have our own laws and rules.
Sir Baumbard: Sometimes this can cause... problems.
Sir Baumbard: Not everyone who comes across a Dragon Amulet holds the best interests of others at heart.
Sir Baumbard: But as long as they respect others and the law, we can work together for the benefit of the order.
Sir Baumbard: I believe the change for the DragonLord order I dream of can come around from within.
Sir Baumbard: My apologies, you must have more on your mind than our internal disputes and issues.
Stablemaster: If you're looking for the dragons, they're... around.
Stablemaster: They seem to have taken a liking to the Great One, so they're flying around the cave, perching in the corners, you know. Dragon things.
Stablemaster: Sure makes my job easier, at least.
Stablemaster: They'll show up when called, though. That's the kind of bond we DragonLords share with our companions.
Intersection Between Fountain Area and Staircase to Prison
Kid: I'm a PuppyLord!
Astrid: Maybe we could buy a house here, what do you think?
Leif: A house? In this fortress? Surrounded by dragons?
Astrid: Well, I'm pretty sure the old one is a giant mushroom now, and that's no place to raise a young girl.
Leif: Nonsense! My father raised me in the side of a snowbank, and we had to rebuild it every other day!
Astrid: Yes, it's clearly done wonders for your perspective.
Leif: I turned out just fine!
Astrid: I know, I know. This has been hard for all of us. But we'll make it through, together.
Leif: Wherever we end up, everything will be okay. I know it will.
Inspector Doyle: Dragonslayers, refugees, and now the Vind and Rose, too...? Oh, hello, <Character>.
Who are you?
Inspector Doyle: Inspector Doyle, head of the Dragonsgrasp guard, at your service.
Inspector Doyle: We worked together on the Vilmor incident. Do you really not remember me?
Inspector Doyle: Ah, it's fine, I'm sure you've got plenty other things to worry about these days!
Inspector Doyle: Yes. When the Rose started hunting dragons, we didn't act, at first.
Inspector Doyle: What happens to dragons outside our order isn't really our jurisdiction.
Inspector Doyle: But when the Rose refused to discriminate between our bonded dragons and those who were not, we had no choice.
Inspector Doyle: Captain Lestrad and his followers wanted us to stay out of the conflict, but dragon populations were dwindling. Even they could see that, eventually.
Inspector Doyle: Turns out the Dragonslayers were the answer. I don't think they fully trust us, and they are a weird bunch...
Inspector Doyle: But regardless of that, they were willing to help defend the remaining dragons. I think they're even considering a change of title.
Inspector Doyle: There have been a few healthy flocks sighted since. I just hope the Rose hasn't gotten their hands on them.
Inspector Doyle: Dragons are not the kind to stay in one place for long, and we can only do so much to protect them.
Inspector Doyle: Please don't mistake me, I have no problem with the refugees. It's certainly more work for us guards, keeping the peace, and helping where we can...
Inspector Doyle: ...but the Great One provides, so in the end, it's no trouble, really.
- The Great One?
Inspector Doyle: The, uh, mountain that we're inside. It's got secrets of its own that aren't mine to share, sorry.
Inspector Doyle: She stayed with us for a short time, but her reputation, however justifiable, followed her and tainted her every interaction.
Inspector Doyle: She and Cryozen Jr. left quite some time ago without a word.
Inspector Doyle: I can't say I blame them. The DragonLord order can be a... difficult organization at times.
Inspector Doyle: Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear.
Frustrated DL: And then, she asked if my dragon could carry her cart for her! As though he were some sort of... of pack animal!
Reasonable DL: I'm sure she meant no harm by it. What did your dragon think?
Frustrated DL: Well, you know him, he immediately said it was no problem and started helping.
Reasonable DL: So what's the problem?
Frustrated DL: I guess... I guess there isn't one.
Frustrated DL: What happened to me? There was a time when I would be just as eager to help with the smallest task.
Reasonable DL: I know the feeling. We've been cooped up in here for far too long. Hopefully this Rose business will blow over sooner than later.
DragonLord: I can't believe Dragesvard was brought down by mushrooms of all things. What a way to go...
DragonLord: Is it true? Mritha and Odgne are back...?
DragonLord: Maybe I can find somewhere to hide...
Staircase to Prison
DragonLord: Watch your step and enjoy the view!
