Oaklore Keep (Books 1 and 2)
Sir Baumbard: Ah, welcome adventurer. I am Sir Baumbard, and this is Glumbert, my Dragon.
Who are you?
Sir Baumbard: I am one of the elite order of DragonLords. We are protectors of this realm and will not hesitate to answer the call of those who need us.
Sir Baumbard: Unless you are lucky enough to befriend an adult dragon, you must quest for your own dragon egg.
Sir Baumbard: Once hatched, you will have a bond with the dragon that will be stronger than any other pet.
Sir Baumbard: In order to unlock the full potential of your dragon though, you must wield a Dragon Amulet.
Sir Baumbard: This ancient talisman will allow your dragon to grow to adult form in order to face the most titanic of enemies...
Sir Baumbard: ...as well as granting you the gift of dragon speech.
How do I quest for a dragon?
Sir Baumbard: Speak with Captain Rolith in the Keep when you have earned enough experience (lvl 3).
Sir Baumbard: Your quest will take you to Falconreach to the east where a small red moglin, Twilly, will guide you on the rest of your journey.
Are you a Pactagonal Knight?
Sir Baumbard: I was once of their Order.
Sir Baumbard: I never attained the rank of Knight with them, though, as my family name didn't work with "sir" in front of it, like the Prizes or the Chandestroys.
Sir Baumbard: My Knighthood was bestowed upon me by the great King himself.
Why are you here?
Sir Baumbard: Word has gotten back to the King in Swordhaven that slimes and undead are amassing on edges of the Oaklore forest.
Sir Baumbard: More have been seen gathering in Doomwood and slowly moving in this direction.
Sir Baumbard: I am here to organize an aerial assault on the unholy creatures. Perhaps you would be willing to lend a hand?
Sir Baumbard: If you are willing, Glumbert will let you ride him into battle against these creatures.
Sir Baumbard: If you are skilled enough, you will be able to search out and destroy large groups of them with these lightbombs.
Fires Over Oaklore
Sir Baumbard: The Green Slime Jellllo, in Sir Loin's Inn, while delicious, does not sit well when dive bombing on dragon back.
Sir Baumbard: For years Glumbert and I have fought side by side against the forces of evil. After I created the lightbombs I took Glumbert out for a flight.
Sir Baumbard: As it turns out, I got terribly...airsick.
Sir Baumbard: Are you willing to go in my place and become a hero? I will go inside the Keep now and have the Knights clear the area.
Sir Baumbard: Ah, hello again, <character>... I... urp... am happy to see you... Welcome to Dragonsgrasp.
Sir Baumbard: Dragonsgrasp is the stronghold of the DragonLord Order.
Sir Baumbard: To keep it secure, only those who have become one of the Order and bonded with their dragon may enter.
Sir Baumbard: You see, Dragonsgrasp is also a prison... In the very depths of the city, a special, enchanted cell holds one of the Order's greatest foes...
Sir Baumbard: ... as the prisoner was also one of the greatest DragonLords. The only DragonLord, in fact, to bond with one of the Great Dragons.
Sir Baumbard: Vilmor turned against the Order, though, and now we keep one of our own locked away...
Why is the city here?
Sir Baumbard: For security... urp... the city piloted by our dragons... it is... mmph... constantly in... motion.
Sir Baumbard: As the most... urp... senior DragonLord... in the region... it falls to me to... coordinate efforts...
Sir Baumbard: and... mmph... inform the head guard Channiru of the dangers in the area.
Sir Baumbard: The city... moves... I look forward to the time I... urp... will get to spend on the ground in Oaklore... It's better... when I think of solid ground...
Sir Baumbard: Dragonsgrasp shall be in the sky over Falconreach... mmph... for a while though.
What can I do here?
Sir Baumbard: For now, feel free to explore. The merchants are restocking in Swordhaven and Channiru meets with Alteon.
Sir Baumbard: In the coming weeks more and more will be available here. In fact, I expect to see the weapons vendor here next week.
Are you... okay?
Sir Baumbard: The... mmph... constant swaying... urp... of the city...
Sir Baumbard: ... air sick... mmmph...
Sir Baumbard: ... I shall.... urp.... try... to visit... Oaklore soon.
