Path connecting Swordhaven Border, Swordhaven (Book 3), and Helm's Harbor
Rose Soldier: Move along, <Class>.
Rose Soldier: Hmph, criminals. They got what they deserved for harbouring contraband items.
Rose Soldier (1): Hah, I can't believe you got 100 gold out of that old geezer!
Rose Soldier (2): Hehe, he was so scared he'd probably have given me more! I didn't have the heart to tax him out of house and home though.
Rose Soldier (2): THIS TIME!
Rose Soldier (1): HAAAhahaha!, Rose Soldier (2): Ahhahahaha!
Smoke in the Trees
Rose Soldier(s) (in unison): No, sir!
Rose Soldier (1): Over here! Found some rebels!
Rose Soldier (2): Alright you two, you're under arrest, by authority of The Rose of Swordhaven, under suspicion of banditry and unauthorized magic use.
Rose Soldier (3): Come along quietly for questioning, or things will have to get rough.
Rose Soldier (1): The Oculus, It's overloading!!!
Rose Soldier (2): Run!!!
Rose Soldier: Sir-?
Rose Soldier: Um... Thank you.
Rose Soldier: Stop making them mad, Carat!
Rose Soldier: We're supposed to be afraid of that tiny lizard?!
Rose Soldier: Sorry! I'm sorry! Yes! Yep! Understood!
Rose Soldier: I don't think they'll be happy back in Swordhaven to hear that you attacked us.
Rose Soldier: Lady Jaania leads The Rose to prevent the misuse of magic.
Rose Soldier: We would never doubt a hero like her. She saved the world twice already, after all.
Rose Soldier: I... We're told a different perspective.
Rose Soldier: Greenguard as a whole is at peace. You magic-users are stirring up trouble.
Rose Soldier: I don't see why not. It's all magic, after all.
Rose Soldier: Carat! Are you out of your mind?
Rose Soldier: Although, I guess it's better than being eaten...
Rose Soldier: I knew it! They're feeding us to the dragons! I'm sorry! I'm sorry I'm sorry!
Fight, Flight, & Fire
Rose Soldier: General Akanthus! DragonLord reinforcements have been spotted!
Rose Soldier: Requesting the order to retreat!
Rose Soldier: Sir!
Swordhaven (Book 3)
When entering Swordhaven (Book 3) for the first time:
Rose Soldier: Halt.
Rose Soldier: What is your business in Swordhaven, traveler?
Rose Soldier: Not now. I asked you a question, traveler!
Rose Soldier: Exploring, <he/she/they> says! Dressed like that?
Rose Soldier: And your name?
Rose Soldier: Your. Name.
Rose Soldier: I would thank you for not questioning my authority in front of the perpetrator!
Rose Soldier: Don't you get indignant with me! I say whether you can get into the city or not!
Rose Soldier: Without my approval, you're not getting past these gates! The safety of the city is in my hands!
Rose Soldier: You seem awfully... guilty about something. What did you say your name was, again?
Rose Soldier: Oh, you're going to be like that, huh? That's it, I'm going to get my supervisor! And... and backup!
Rose Soldier: You're in for it now, just you wait!
Market section, near Blet's Booth:
Rose Soldier: Are you sure you don't want to move... No one will rent this stall with how... pungent your wares are.
Rose Soldier: Is everything alright in there?!
Rose Soldier: Are you sure...?
Tournament of Champions Part 2 / (Easy)
Rose Soldier: It's a combat tournament. There are risks involved.
Rose Soldier: Accidents happen. I know I wasn't about to step in front of Fangblade.
Rose Soldier: That's none of your concern. We don't answer to you.
Rose Soldier: Looks like nothing serious happened, so the tournament shall continue. By His Majesty, King Alteon's, decree, of course.
The Cheese Seller
Rose Soldier: *mumble* Ugh, this smell... Maybe if I won't acknowledge their existence, they'll leave...
???: So you do admit to stealing!
Rose Soldier: I thought I warned you what would happen if you were caught stealing, but I guess you didn't listen.
Rose Soldier: Backtracking isn't going to help you this time...
Rose Soldier: ... since we have a witness.
Rose Soldier: And that means you should get off scot-free for breaking the law?
Rose Soldier: Then stealing is stealing.
Rose Soldier: Well if you're intent on obstructing the law, I can get really serious.
Rose Soldier: Come on, kid.
Rose Soldier: You'll be coming with me down to the outpost.
Rose Soldier: "You'll be coming with me down to the outpost."
Rose Soldier: ...that's what someone who's completely heartless would say, isn't it?
Rose Soldier: It's funny...
Rose Soldier: A few years ago, I felt pretty much the same as this kid did.
Rose Soldier: Granted I've never lived on the streets...
Rose Soldier: ...but after my father's fields all burned one year and there was nothing but hunger that filled the pit of my stomach for months on end...
Rose Soldier: ...you'd think I'd know pretty well what that kid was talking about.
Rose Soldier: But I guess...
Rose Soldier: Hold on a second, kid.
Rose Soldier: ... Thanks for saying all that.
Rose Soldier: Come to think of it... I think I might know how to solve part of your problem.
Rose Soldier: Yeah... Sort of. Do you know Anders?
Rose Soldier: Yeah. I often tour around his place while I'm on duty.
Rose Soldier: He's told me recently that due to the sheer volume of orders for equipment from the Rose he's been getting...
Rose Soldier: ... he's been considering finding a boy to help him around the forge.
Rose Soldier: He said he'd pay them an apprentice's wage and if they work well, he might even consider taking them on as a real apprentice.
Rose Soldier: You should find Anders and tell him I sent you... He'd trust my word for it.
Rose Soldier: And that is?
Rose Soldier: Then... why don't you just come home and stay with me?
Rose Soldier: Listen.... Everything would work out.
Rose Soldier: I might be gone for long hours at times on duty... but you could take care of a little sister while I'm away.
Rose Soldier: ... and with mine and your wage during the day, it would more than pay to keep us stable!
Rose Soldier: What would you say? Would you take care of my little Sunshine?
???: Here, captain! I think we found a way in!
???: And... PULL!
Leaving the Nest
Rose Soldier: ...and when we got near, we saw a dragon followed by a huge explosion. What happened here? Ms. Messimy sent for us, where is she?
Rose Soldier: I see... I'm sorry to hear that.
Rose Soldier: We'll make sure to let headquarters know about this, and we'll make sure to honor her!
Rose Soldier: We'll leave some people here to help fix the damage that has been done.
Rose Soldier: Now, let's get this scum to Espina Rosa.
Rose Soldier: What in Khazri's Four Winds is that awful noise?!
Rose Soldier: ...What's going on? Are weird people trying to run up to the Fortress again?
Rose Soldier: DON'T TELL SOFIST!
Awakened Depths: Epilogue (All Versions)
Rose Soldier: State your name and business in the city.
Rose Soldier: And what is your occupation, Warren?
Rose Soldier: And the reason for your visit?
Rose Soldier: ...
Rose Soldier: You don't look much like a farmer. And I don't see any vegetables or fruits.
Rose Soldier: Magical produce is not allowed within the city limits per edict 2883, section B, subsection 1-D.
Rose Soldier: I'm afraid they will have to be confiscated, and I must detain you foró
Rose Soldier: And you are?
Rose Soldier: There's no invisible vegetables then?
Rose Soldier: Well...
Rose Soldier: Alright then. Go on. You'll be looking for the Ivory Tower for treatment.
Rose Soldier: East side of the city, can't miss it.
Rose Soldier: Can't be any weirder than the other folks we've had around here recently.
Rose Soldier: Between the Vind's elves and mages and who knows what else, I'm sure they'll fit right in.
Rose Soldier: Sure you did. Sure.
That A'Way! (Book 3)
Rose Soldier (1): So there he was, just looming over us all while we had to clear out bandit camps. It was surreal.
Rose Soldier (2): I'm sure glad I wasn't on duty that day. I heard he just walks slowly at dragons and even they get scared!
Rose Soldier (1): Oh, a traveler! I'm sorry, but this path is currently being secured from magical threats. You'll have to take another route.
Rose Soldier: Shall I escort you to Amityvale?
Travel - teleports player to Amityvale (Book 3).
Rose Soldier: They're still trying to build the road to extend the supply lines.
Rose Soldier: You can tell that to their faces after we make it.
Hawk in the Sky
Rose Soldier: Lady Jaania!
Rose Soldier: We're under attack! A magical assault from below!
Crash and Burn
Rose Soldier: By the Avatars...
