The City Entrance
Knight (1): All visitors must be approved by The Rose.
Guard Captain: Welcome to Swordhaven, <Character>. As long you keep the peace, no one should bother you.
Knight (2): Do not test me, <Class>.
Knight (2): <Character>, yes. You're welcome to enter but know that fighting and unauthorized spells are not allowed inside the city walls.
Knight (1): The court of King Alteon is off-limits. Do not attempt to climb the wall.
Knight (2): Jim... I'm telling you... the cheese trader, next time he comes... you have to go check it out. It's like moldy socks and Knight's Inn mixed together....
Knight (1): ...
Salet: It can't... it can't be that bad.
Knight (1): Don't encourage him, Salet. Just... just don't.
After completion of The Golden Hand and being directed to Swordhaven by Kara SuLema:
Knight (1): You still don't have permission to climb over the wall, <Character>. Approach the gate if you wish to enter.
If you approach the gate:
Knight (1): Queen Victoria is expecting you, <Character>. You may proceed.
To Queen Victoria - teleports you to Swordhaven Castle.
Blet: Eh, you there. Wanna buy a pet?
Rose Soldier: Are you sure you don't want to move... No one will rent this stall with how... pungent your wares are.
Neelan: When is that cheese guy due back? I need to remember to take that day off...
Ormrir: Hats! Belts! More belts!
Salesman: Why hello, miss. Can I interest you in a finely crafted container? I've got barrels of them! *snicker*
Eelan: You're definitely scraping the bottom of one... you've been telling that joke for years.
Shadow, Kayla and Redoute
Shadow: The situation in Doomwood is dire. I do not envy the Magus there and what they have to deal with.
Kayla: My sister said even Hunter's Paradise has been attacked. I wish she'd move back home.
Redoute: They've put the call out for more soldiers in Amityvale. I hope I can go and help there.
Theopisti: Meliades! I need a bushel of your best fruit! My brother is finally coming home from the Sandsea!
Alanni: We have the tastiest produce this side of the Great Sea! Would you like some samples?
Alanni gives you Fresh Apple.
Alanni gives you Dried Figs.
Alanni gives you Banana Slice.
Arcanum: Hail <Character>. I'm glad to see you accepted the invitation of the ArchMagus. Not many expected you to.
Arcanum: With all you've done for Lore, it's a shame to be at odds.
Rose Soldier: Hrmm, I hope that Gruss is ok. It's not like him to miss a work day.

Knight: Your own father and sister were lost when Xan took out King Alteon's Elite Knights...
Knight: Then you had to fight their remains when Sepulchure's four Necromancers attacked.
Knight: A gigantic dragon ate the Sun.
Knight: But a giant spell-flinging ogre covered in bark is too crazy for you? I'm telling you, I know what I saw!
Jema: That berserk knight in Oaklore forest has hit you on the head too many times!
Guard Captain: Welcome to Swordhaven, <Character>. As long you keep the peace, no one should bother you.
Pop-up headline before completion of Unbound while approaching the left fountain:

Circe: Oh, <Character>... it's always so nice to see you...
Circe: ... and if you blow my cover and I'll hunt you to the ends of Lore...
<Character>: Ummm... do we talk about the weather or books or something.... or are you just gonna stand there and check me out?
Circe: I hate you... so... much....
Circe: I don't care why you're here, <Character>. Just finish your quests and don't mess with my mission.

Near the Library
Nightly: Hmm... are you really <Character>?
Nightly: Stories of your deeds are what inspired me to finally pick up a sword.
Nightly: After everything I've seen, though... the necromancers and the dragonfire... the bandits and the warlords...
Nightly: I'm glad to finally be in a place where some semblance of peace reigns.
Grandiflora: Hail, <Character>...
Grandiflora: ...Could I have a moment with you?
<Character>: You're with The Rose.
Grandiflora: I am. Commander Grandiflora at your service. I need your help.
<Character>: What for?
Grandiflora: It's my men... Some of them have gone missing.
Grandiflora: They and I were tasked with quelling the riots that recently started popping up in the Branden Quarter...
Grandiflora: ...but things turned sour after we chased and confronted the main group responsible.
Grandiflora: I am not sure how, but despite the fact that my men are well-trained and well-equipped...
Grandiflora: ...the rioters managed to give them a rough time. Enough to wound several of them.
Grandiflora: We had to fall back to recoup our position. As we made it out though, I realized that several members of my troops... had disappeared.
Grandiflora: I am afraid that they got themselves lost somewhere along the way in the labyrinthine alleyways the area is notorious for.
Grandiflora: I need to go back and find my men.... They've put their faith in me as their commander and I have no intention of letting them down.
Grandiflora: I can't do it alone however. Will you help me find them?
Grandiflora: It's no secret to anyone. The Branden Quarter has almost always been the most impoverished section of Swordhaven.
Grandiflora: Historically, it's been like that.
Grandiflora: But the conflicts in recent years have aggravated the situation to a point as the least well-to-do refugees...
Grandiflora: ...naturally gravitate towards Branden.
Grandiflora: King Alteon has been kind enough to direct the excess bounty of the harvest each year towards them...
Grandiflora: However, even that is beginning to stretch thin.
Grandiflora: They have had to start rationing the surplus in order to supply every single impoverished citizen something...
Grandiflora: ... and it is breeding some discontent.
Grandiflora: Still... I find it strange that it would escalate like this.
<Character>: Maybe they're just fed up with seeing the High Court and Rose Elite getting all the nice meals while they struggle to even get by?
Grandiflora: Branden is infamous for... is its poor housing situation.
Grandiflora: As the downtrodden have long lived and resided there, improvised dwellings, one on top of the other...
Grandiflora: ...have engineered over time the organized chaos of the Branden Quarter.
Grandiflora: You can imagine what that means. The last civil engineer of the Court that tried to map Branden was jailed for arson.
Grandiflora: I hear he spends his days muttering about bear heads and killer rabbits...
Grandiflora: ...and constantly harasses the jail guards demanding holey grenades to protect himself.
Grandiflora: Went far off the deep end that one...
Grandiflora: But even the citizens of Branden have a hard time finding their way around sometimes.
Grandiflora: And of course, all that makes it even more difficult to deal with and root out the rioters.
- Citizens - complete North Sneevil to unlock this option.
<Character>: Didn't a number of people try to clobber us while we ran through the nearby alleys in the last two runs? Weren't those rioters?
Grandiflora: No, those are normal citizens.... The rioters themselves are armed and these people weren't.
<Character>: ...Why did they attack us?
Grandiflora: The rioters aren't the only ones unhappy about the situation in Branden. They are just the ones who have decided to take to... more violent actions.
<Character>: Doesn't that worry the Rose or King Alteon? That practically everyone in at least a part of the city is like this?
Grandiflora: I'm not sure if the King has been briefed on the full scale of the situation...
Grandiflora: As I've mentioned before, the King already does do something for the impoverished citizens of Branden.
Grandiflora: The riots themselves have still only recently started happening and...
Grandiflora: ... this is still the responsibility of the military branch of The Rose at the moment.
<Character>: But it's clearly not enough.
Grandiflora: I am not sure... It seems strange the citizens of fair Swordhaven would come to this so easily.
<Character>: I don't really think there's anything strange about it...
<Character>: ... If people are starting to starve, isn't it perfectly natural for them to be angry about it and react like?
Grandiflora: I don't disagree.... I just find it a bit strange in this case.
- Old Friend - complete Creepy Crawlies to unlock this option.
<Character>: You mentioned an old friend back there for a moment...
Grandiflora: Hmm? Oh, that?
Grandiflora: It's really nothing much. Years ago when I joined the Rose I fell into a camaraderie with another greenhorn...
Grandiflora: Both of us were rascals in our own ways so we got along like two desert bandits in a crowded Sandsea market.
<Character>: That sounds nice! Do you still see him around?
Grandiflora: Well, we sort of went our separate ways after we completed our first deployment and rose to the rank of officers.
Grandiflora: A pretty common sight back then when the Rose was as fresh as a spring blossom.
Grandiflora: I haven't really seen him since although I hear he's made pretty well for himself.
<Character>: Well, if you still think about him now, he sure must be fun to hang around with!
Grandiflora: I wouldn't go that far. He's... particular.
Grandiflora: Like a well-aged barrel of juice: a bold character that some appreciate and turns off others.
Grandiflora: He's definitely not for everyone to like, but he was a good friend to me.
- Grateful - complete Creepy Crawlies to unlock this option.
Grandiflora: Something the matter, Hero?
<Character>: I... just wanted to thank you again for giving me that equipment. I appreciate it. Really.
Grandiflora: Oh. Of course.
Grandiflora: Granted I don't exactly know how much use it'll actually be for you...
Grandiflora: I imagine a Hero of your caliber must have received rewards that these pale in comparison to.
<Character>: Trust me... It's definitely better than what some people do.
<Character>: Help me! Help me, <Character>!
<Character>: A wizard sneezed at my chickens and they acquired sentience and are plotting world domination!
<Character>: Uhm... They're still chickens? Can't you just cook them up for dinner or something?
<Character>: ....Actually, now that I think about it, that's a great idea! Thanks!
<Character>: You're a true hero, <Character>! Why, I can get two birds with one stone this way!
<Character>: Well, if I were you, I'd cook up all five birds but....
<Character>: Some days I don't know whether I'm the Hero of Falconreach or an Odd Jobs busboy....
<Character>: Although I did get a nice piece of that chicken roast I guess.
Grandiflora: Hahaha! Well, that sure sounds like a peculiar story alright...
<Character>: Oh, trust me. I have DOZENS of stories where that came from.
Grandiflora: Unfortunately, this isn't really the time or the place.
Grandiflora: However, I do know an Inn near the Barracks that puts some pretty good juice on the table...
Grandiflora: How about this: if you're up for it later, I could show you there.
Grandiflora: If you consider a good mug of juice for a story a fair trade, of course.
<Character>: I... might take you up on that.

<Character>: So, who was this Lansezeur guy and this compass of his?
Grandiflora: Lansezeur is one of the soldiers in my platoon that went missing.
Grandiflora: This compass in particular is the one he'd take with him wherever he would go.
<Character>: Did it have any particular meaning to him?
Grandiflora: I wouldn't exactly know...
Grandiflora: Lansezeur's the type that was nice and got along pretty easily with everyone else.
Grandiflora: Doesn't stand out too much. Never goes out of the way to talk about his own personal things.
Grandiflora: Or perhaps didn't want
Grandiflora: What I know is Lansezeur was taught how to make engravings by his grandfather.
Grandiflora: I've seen him before: when he hadn't too much on his plate, he'd grab pieces of wood with nice, flat surfaces...
Grandiflora: ...and then, he'd take out several burins of different sizes out of a pouch and start scrapping at the wood leisurely.
Grandiflora: Said the superb Rose ornaments on his compass are something he made himself.
Grandiflora: I'd believe him if even not having seen him do it himself... The guy definitely has a knack and talent for it.
<Character>: Yeah, I have to admit. They are really pretty.
Grandiflora: They are.
Grandiflora: Still... I don't know why he likes that compass so much.
Grandiflora: If you ask me, Lansezeur was one of the ones that could do with opening up with the rest of the crew a bit more.
Grandiflora: I know it's not possible with everyone, but I like to try and get all my men to talk to each other.
Grandiflora: Get a feel for the rest of the group and feel like they have someone to talk to and maybe a second home in their squad.
Grandiflora: At the end of the day, our duty is a team effort. Can't get around that...
<Character>: And Carrel's ring?
Grandiflora: Oh yes. I know Carrel...
Grandiflora: *exasperated sigh*
Grandiflora: Carrel is one of the younger soldiers...
Grandiflora: He has a little sister that lives out in the countryside and this is the ring she gave him when he left home to join the Rose.
Grandiflora: I know because I'd catch him writing letters to send her all the time right when the patrol was supposed to head out!
Grandiflora: But he's a very good kid... with a heart to match.
Grandiflora: The reason he sends letters and little gifts to his sister all the time is because she can't walk.
<Character>: ...She can't walk?
Grandiflora: That's right. Her health's too poor for it.
Grandiflora: Back in the country, she likes to sit on a chair on the porch and that way she'd be just fine...
Grandiflora: But getting up and walking around for more than a minute takes too much effort out of her.
<Character>: That's awful...
Grandiflora: Isn't it?
Grandiflora: It doesn't sound like it's discouraged her though. Carrel told me she loves to see everything there is to see.
Grandiflora: Fields, forests, landscapes, towns...
Grandiflora: *chuckle* Back home, he said he'd take her piggybacking around all the time.
Grandiflora: And one day, she wants to be able to walk around and see the Capital of the Kingdom of Greenguard herself.
<Character>: *smile* I hope her dream comes true!
Grandiflora: So do I, <Character>. So do I.
- Mori - complete The Bizarre Bazaar to unlock this option.
<Character>: Both of your guys sound like they're pretty swell in their own ways.
<Character>: You can certainly be proud to be their Commander!
Grandiflora: I am and they really are.
<Character>: Something wrong? You look... pretty pale all of sudden.
Grandiflora: I...I'm worried...
Grandiflora: Because we found each of their mementos, but not Lansezeur or Carrel themselves...
Grandiflora: From what I've told you, you can hazard to guess neither of them would never be caught without carrying them around.
Grandiflora: It's like you say: these are my men I am responsible for as their Commander.
Grandiflora: It keeps me up a night and I am horribly afraid.
Grandiflora: I can't imagine if I had to go pay visit their families and tell them that...
<Character>: Whoa! Whoa! Whooooa!
<Character>: Come on, Grandi! Don't go there! We'll find your guys just fine!
<Character>: ... That just came out like that!
<Character>: Sorry! I didn't mean be disrespectful, Commander!
Grandiflora: *soft chuckling*
Grandiflora: ...Well, how about that? I haven't been called Grandi since before I was promoted!
Grandiflora: *smiles* Well, that sure cheered me up a bit. Thanks for that, <Character>.
<Character>: All in a day's work for the Hero of Falconreach!
Grandiflora: Yes. I think I'm starting to see that...
<Character>: Oh? And what do you mean by that?
Grandiflora: That you're not appreciated as a Hero just because you go around saving the world all the time.
<Character>: I'm not?
<Character>: Then why I am considered a Hero?
Grandiflora: Well, there isn't always a world ending threat looming over Lore's head to take care of last I checked...
<Character>: As the Hero of Falconreach, I question that line of thinking...
Grandiflora: Well, people aren't exactly expecting the sky to fall on their heads every day, are they?
Grandiflora: Typically, most of them are just going about their daily lives and struggles whether here in the Capital or elsewhere.
Grandiflora: Helping kids get back their ball, an old woman trying to get something done...
Grandiflora: ...around the house that's made difficult by her old age or a senior soldier just taking a hit to his morale.
Grandiflora: You've helped scores of citizens with rather trivial tasks... but they still see you as a Hero for it!
Grandiflora: And I'd guess it because being a Hero is just as much about taking care of a world destroying abomination...
Grandiflora: ...than taking care of deranged chickens! Ha Ha Ha!
<Character>: Well, what can I say, Commander? You've got this Hero all figured out!
Grandiflora: Save those red cheeks. You aren't swimming in all the antioxidants from the juice at the Inn yet!
<Character>: Fiiiine. Have it your way!
<Character>: But only because you're so pushy!
Grandiflora: I don't have to be pushy to have some good stories to listen to along with that juice, do I?
<Character>: Oh, no. There'll be plenty of those all right. Just you wait...
Rose Armoury - complete Creepy Crawlies to unlock this option.
- North Sneevil
<Character>: What's the plan?
Grandiflora: My troops were cornered into the small and tortuous alleys off one of the main roads.
Grandiflora: I guess that was my first mistake and just the chance the rioters were looking for to level the playing field.
Grandiflora: Although they still shouldn't have caused as much trouble for my soldiers... but that's another matter.
Grandiflora: The best plan would be to go as an elite, small, fast moving unit able to get in and out quickly.
Grandiflora: In other words, just the two of us.
Grandiflora: Branden isn't exactly the safest place, especially at the moment.
Grandiflora: It's unfortunate to say that of any places in Swordhaven, even Branden, but it's the truth.
Grandiflora: The quicker we can get in and out with the ones that were left behind, the better.
<Character>: All right. And how do we get in?
Grandiflora: The eastern side of Dragon Alley is where we came in, but the rioters are likely to be keeping an eye on that now.
Grandiflora: Dragon Alley runs east by west though and it isn't the only big road through Branden.
Grandiflora: There's also The Running Sneevil Boulevard which goes north by south.
Grandiflora: So that gives us two points of entry: from the north and from the south.
Grandiflora: I suggest we try north first and investigate the alleys immediately to the east from there.
Grandiflora: Any questions?
Grandiflora: Good. Then let's head in.
- A Second Look
Grandiflora: Dead end and not one soldier in sight.
Grandiflora: Kyanos' icy breath.... Well, at the very least we didn't run into any rioters.
<Character>: Time for the south entrance?
Grandiflora: I'm still not convinced there's nothing to find by the northeastern side...
Grandiflora: We didn't catch the attention of the rioters so the North entrance is clear still.
Grandiflora: I suggest we go back and try pushing deeper.
Grandiflora: Let's head back to the Northern entry point and run down farther into Branden before checking out the alleyways to the East.
Grandiflora: Let's hope we come up with something solid this time.
- Creepy Crawlies
Grandiflora: Blast! Still nothing...
Grandiflora: Well, I guess we should try the southern entrance then...
Grandiflora: *sigh* This would be going quite differently if he were here I imagine.
<Character>: He? Who's he?
Grandiflora: Ah, sorry. I probably shouldn't be rambling on about my junior years at a time like this.
Grandiflora: Let's keep the pace going and head to the southern part of the Quarter.
Grandiflora: Alley Creepers infests the place so we'll have to be wary of those this time.
<Character>: Alley Creepers?
Grandiflora: The spiders that make their nest in narrow and dark alleys.
<Character>: Are they really that bad?
Grandiflora: If you come across the big ones, it sure can be. One of my men on a previous patrol got jumped by one.
Grandiflora: They say some years ago a Darkness Giant refugee brought its pet with them to the Quarter...
Grandiflora: ...and it stuck around after they were chased out which is why they get so big.
Grandiflora: But I've never seen or heard tell of Darkness Giants before.. It sounds like just a wild story to me.
Grandiflora: The point remains that they can become pretty big so we should be careful of any dark alleys we come by.
<Character>: Hmm... Interesting. I see.
Grandiflora: All right. Let's get this one done and over with before the sun sets.
- Bizarre Bazaar
Grandiflora: Finally... A physical trace of them.
<Character>: Yeah, but we still don't know where they might be.
Grandiflora: That's true, but I think I know where to look next...
<Character>: Oh? And where's that?
Grandiflora: We actually came through that area when we were falling back and running from the rioters...
Grandiflora: I remember now. Lansezeur brought to my attention the presence of a run down open market and we decided to run through it.
Grandiflora: We thought we'd cross Dragon Alley that way...
<Character>: ...You thought you'd cross dragonally?
<Character>: What is that, some sort of weird military formation?
Grandiflora: No, no! I mean Dragon Alley as in one of the two arteries through Branden!
<Character>: Oh, right. Sorry! I'm bad at hearing directions sometimes!
<Character>: Comes with the territory of running and chasing after things all the time and not having the time to get everything straight right away...
Grandiflora: That sounds like a sure fire way to end up in a dark alley...
Grandiflora: Either way, as you can figure, it was never the right path we hoped to find...
Grandiflora: However, all things said, that strange bazaar was one of the places we ran through before my men disappeared...
Grandiflora: I remember feeling something was off about it when we passed through all those stalls.
Grandiflora: Rancid or stale food sitting on the stalls unattended, almost no merchant around selling their wares...
Grandiflora: It isn't much to go on, but my instinct tells me we might find something there.
<Character>: Sounds good to me!
Grandiflora: Indeed. I...
<Character>: What? Is something wrong?
<Character>: You look a bit pale all of sudden.
Grandiflora: ...It's nothing. Just a bit fatigued.
Grandiflora: A bit of running will fix me right up!
<Character>: If you say so.
Grandiflora: Let's keep going. I... think we're starting to get closer if only just.
Grandiflora: Let's see what the bizarre bazaar has in store.
Grandiflora: Listen, <Character>. I've already heard...
<Character>: ... About what?
Grandiflora: The terms you've been on with some of the other members of The Rose...
<Character>: Look... there's no point in arguing with me on that.
<Character>: I'm not going to change my m-
Grandiflora: I had a talk with my Quartermaster and she's agreed to let you have some equipment supplies.
Grandiflora: This is equipment that would be kept in reserve for Rose personnel normally.
Grandiflora: I'm hoping that by giving you this, you might take it as proof...
Grandiflora: ... that I do really appreciate your voluntary effort and that my intentions are genuine.
<Character>: Oh... Well, thanks for that.
Grandiflora: Glad too. I promise I won't treat the help you're giving as some sort of right I have because you're a Hero.
Grandiflora: I'll make sure you're compensated talk to the Quartermaster again the next time you help me as well.

Iris: Yes sir, Mr. Knight. Although, they're a very strange group.... One of the ladies keeps talking about the stitching on the mattresses...
Knight: They've booked all the rooms and are staying indefinitely. We can get them some new mattresses!
Anders: Hey there, <Class>. Are you picking up an order or do you need something made?
Beside the Blacksmith Shop
Tim the Barbarian: I mean really, all things considered, lamentations are great and all but my heart really wasn't in it.
Tim the Barbarian: I've always wanted to raise horses, ride over the hills, feel the wind through my helm....
Kakyuu: They don't have ranches where you're from?
Tim the Barbarian: Well, it's better to not get attached to anything that's going to be sacrificed to the giant carnivorous snake gods.
Kakyuu: Ah, I understand. I once dreamed of being an apprentice to one of the great Mages but, well...
Kakyuu: After his last apprentice killed him, then he came back, then he went crazy, then he got better, then he got imprisoned... I had to give up on that dream.
Karika and Liant
Karika: I'm telling you, I've gone through it at least fifty times. Anything that crawled, flew, slithered, or skittered got squashed.
Liant: You know the stream of bugs is never ending.
Celesa and Mehphisto
Celesa: Are you sure?
Mehphisto: I'm getting to be too old to try and sneak through those old ruins!
The Ivory Tower
Tipu: Halt. The Ivory Tower is sealed to you, <Class>. You may only enter by the grace of the ArchMagus.
Ahimsa: What do you want to know, <Character>?
<Character>: Well... you know who I am, who are you?
Tipu: The thorns of the ArchMagus.
Ahimsa: We are Jaania's personal guard. I am known as Ahimsa in the Rose and this is my sister, Tipu.
<Character>: Jaania herself asked me here. Why can't I go inside and see her?
Tipu: The ArchMagus invited you to Swordhaven, not into the Ivory Tower or her personal sanctum.
Ahimsa: Sister, he/she is still a guest of the Rose.
Ahimsa: No one knew when, or if, you'd come, <Character>, and Jaania has her own quests to complete.
<Character>: I thought you were her personal guard?
Tipu: And we are there when the ArchMagus needs us.
Ahimsa: Jaania is capable of defending herself, as you know. There are times when she can't, or doesn't want to, be on guard though.
Ahimsa: Where she is now, we couldn't follow. She does wish to speak with you when she returns, if you're willing.
<Character>: I have quests of my own.
Tipu: Then quest. If you are willing to meet, than she will find you.
<Character>: You're not really helping her case.
Ahimsa: It isn't our case to make. Each of us has to taken our own path to this moment and has our own reason for the side on which we stand.
<Character>: Then what's yours?
Tipu: You've saved your corner of the world countless times. We fight for that same chance.
Ahimsa: My sister and I are the last of our people... we've been the last for years. We were supposed to be heroes and, instead, we became survivors.
Ahimsa: In a single day we lost our families, our home, and... and...
<Character>: I understand that you've lost more than anyone should ever have to... but...
Tipu: Stop. No buts. You have fractured time itself with your heroics.
Tipu: And if you could you would do it again in a heartbeat for any of singular friends you haven't been able to save.
Tipu: And you still have the bond we lost.
Ahimsa: Sister... I'm sure <Character> has other places to be.
Ahimsa: Be well, <Character>, and if Jaania returns we will seek you out.
<Character>: I... Alright... thank you.
The Residential Section
The Residential Section Entrance
Knight: Hail, <Class>. Welcome to the residential section of Swordhaven. Please remember, no solicitors and keep noise to a minimum after dusk.
Kaila and her Dad
Kaila: Check it out, Dad! It's starting to grow!
Kesra and Kiyone
Kesra: Get yer lazeh behind oot hur thes enstance, chile'!
Kiyone: How can he still be asleep?!
Kiyone: I really don't know how much longer I can wait. The gnomish tinkerer leaves tomorrow and there's still so much to learn....
Whittlesey: How does the day find you, <Class>? Have faith and be strong!
Lis: Great... the chickens escaped again.
Konnan: It's been a while, <Character>.
<Character>: Konnan? You're the last person I expected to see in Swordhaven.
Konnan: I could say the same to you.
<Character>: I use magic to defend and protect.
Konnan: You can't defend and protect everyone and there will always be those that use magic for power... for greed... for vengeance....
Konnan: I know now that I took the wrong path... and that I won't ever be able to change that...
Konnan: But I can dedicate myself to making sure no one else can follow my fall.
<Character>: Getting rid of magic doesn't get rid of power, greed, or vengeance.
Konnan: No, it doesn't.
Konnan: But a simple blacksmith has a chance against those things... if not to fight, at least to run.
Konnan: You can't escape a Great Dragon... or the Sun being eaten... or an Infernal bent of destroying the world. You can only fight fire with fire.
Konnan: And then everyone gets burned.
Konnan: I... I need to get back to work, <Character>.
