Falconreach (Book 3)
Ruby: Hello there! Ruby, the Adventure Chef, at your service! Broil on!
Ruby: What's up, hero?
- Who are you?
Ruby: I'm Ruby, the Adventure Chef! I'm a moglin. And a chef. And an adventurer! I've loved cooking and exploring ever since I was small. Smaller.
Ruby: I travel all over Lore looking for rare delicacies and ingredients for use in cooking the most amazing dishes.
Ruby: Of course, there are some dangers involved. The occasional unbread, hungry beasts, bandits, traps, the usual.
Ruby: I'm sure you know all about those sorts of things, hero.
Ruby: I used to travel with my brother, Rudy, but there was an incident with a fire elemental, a tog, and a couple spatulas.
Ruby: I'm not sure what he's up to these days.
Ruby: But hey, that just means more food for me to adventure!
- Your ear?
Ruby: Oh, my ear?
Ruby: It was delicious.
Ruby: I'm kidding.
Ruby: I lost it in a cooking accident.
Ruby: Turns out some beasts don't like being pan-fried in an herb-infused moglinberry juice reduction. Who'd have thought?
- I see...
Ruby: The food I sell is all... edible! Some food I've collected from the depths of Lore, others I cook to order.
Ruby: My ingredients are always the freshest, except when they're well aged. And always humanely treated, except when they're not.
Ruby: I've probably tried one of everything there is to try on this continent, although...
Ruby: I've never tried a hero steak before.
Ruby: That was a joke.
Ruby: Unless you were willing to... no? Definitely not? Are you sure? I'm not drooling! What were we talking about? Right, my food!
Ruby: It's all perfectly safe and arguably healthy! As I always say, 'The fuzzy green bits are just extra veggies!'
Ruby: Probably want to pick out anything that's glowing bright neon colors though. That's not normal. Unless you want it to be. I won't judge.
Ruby: I have a wide selection in stock, all for the fairest of prices! All organic too, except for what isn't.
Thankstaking (Chapter 13)
Ruby: Let's see what delicious dangers await us this Thankstaking, as per tradition!
Return of the Felonious Five
Ruby: What a delicious pickle. Transformed, you say? Hmm.
Ruby: Food. Hmmm. Transformed into turducken. I wonder...
Ruby: I think...
Ruby: Yes, working with that scrumptious Twilly, we should be able to use some Moglin magic to counteract the enchantments.
Ruby: But you'll have to round them all up for us!
Ruby: Be gentle with them! I'll go find Twilly!
Ruby: Yeah... turn them all back...
Ruby: People transformed into turduckens! Sounds like an opportunity too good to pass up. No one will miss Ash, right? Maybe just a wing?
Ruby: I'm kidding! These plants are vital to the spell we've got planned.
Ruby: Excuse me, Joules... was it?
Ruby: I wonder if you've considered the health benefits of living life with only one legó
Ruby: What? I'm just curious.
Thankstaking (Chapter 14)
Ruby: Hi, <Character>. Can you help me with something that may or may not be really dangerous?
Ruby: Yo, <Character>. I've got this recipe in mind, but it needs something with some extra kick. Something rare. Exotic.
Ruby: Thanks for offering to help, <Character>. As it turns out, it only grows inó
Ruby: Are you sure? I could've sworn... Well, anyway, it only grows in the underground caves of the perpetually windswept lands of Ovungu Zoyo.
Ruby: I knew you'd be up for the task! I've been all over the place in my adventuring days, Ovungu Zoyo included, and if I've managed, so will you!
Ruby: The ingredient I need is called an Erythrocitrus. You'll know it when you see it.
Ruby: Don't forget to stop and take in the landscape! It's quite breathtaking.
Ruby: Try taking shallow breaths while traversing the region, or else the incredibly strong winds might suck the air out of ya! Maybe.
Ruby: And that would be very interesting!
Ruby: Off you go, I've got cookery to do!
Ruby: It'll have to do.
Ruby: Of course not.
Ruby: It's just a spice.
Ruby: Does that happen often when you cook?
Ruby: You'll have to invite me next time it happens. Sounds like a delicious opportunity.
Ruby: Now, shoo! I'll call everyone over when it's ready!
Thankstaking (Chapter 15)
Ruby: Oh, don't mind the noise, Gretel is just being a witch!
Stew It Yourself
Ruby: WHAT?! Are you out of your mind!?
Ruby: Everyone knows that you have to stuff the turducken first and then roast it!
Ruby: Oh, and pleeeease do call me a "little lady" again, witch. We still need a soup, and you look perfect for the brotó
Ruby: ...Comparing recipes!
Ruby: Well, actually, we do still lack an extra special dish that'll blow everyone's taste buds away.
Ruby: Oh, I know! Why doesn't <Character> decide for us?
Ruby: You're good at picking the clearly CORRECT option, aren't you?
Ruby: Hi Gaelan! Why yes, that's exactly what I said, we need an extra special dish that'll blow everyone's taste buds away!
Ruby: Oooh, exotic! Just what I like!
Ruby: <Character> said that s/he'll go, so we have that covered!
Ruby: What? You'll have to speak up. Only one ear, you know.
Ruby: I love it! The more you think you know of the world, the more it surprises you!
Ruby: Off you go, <Character>! Time's a wasting!
Ruby: Good news <Character>! While you were away, we reached a consensus!
Ruby: Instead, through some of my and Gretel's magic, we've managed to, wait for it...
Ruby: ... to separate the being into two base components!!!
Ruby: ... and the other one a "duck"!
Ruby: And I stuff mine after!
Ruby: See! I told you s/he'd be speechless!
Thanks to BluuHorseOfficial for correction.
