Location: Grinding Gears, Broken Circuit (Part 1)
???: An ungrown dragon and two humans.
???: This is all you have to show from your... unplanned expedition?
???: It seems your brother was right to send his forces to retrieve you.
???: We can only hope that you didn't share too much with the defenders during your infiltration.
???: You think?
???: Your thoughts have put the entire colonization effort in jeopardy.
???: Leave the thinking for your betters, for the sake of the Manufactory!
???: Enough! As the hammer strikes the ingot, so too must we strike their paltry defenses.
???: All has gone well until now.
???: Until you could not contain your whims.
???: The static has been building long enough. The thunderbolt will fall.
???: Let your elder brother deal with this campaign, little Prince. You can dream your fantasies, but do not get in his way again!
???: The prisoners have been brought to the dungeon. Prince Eulin may do with them as he wishes- but only after we establish our foothold.
???: Is that clear, Prince Eulin?
Broken Circuit (Part 1)
???: Ahh. The Beyond. New land.
???: And a royal welcoming party! Greetings.
Thorin Verriton: I am King Thorin Verriton, ruler of the Manufactory.
Thorin Verriton: I see you've met two of my sons. And brought them low.
Thorin Verriton: Hmph. A human and an undersized dragon is all that the Beyond could muster?
Thorin Verriton: Prince Lupin, I am disappointed.
Thorin Verriton: And Prince Eulin...
Thorin Verriton: Your judgement is as questionable as ever, Eulin.
Thorin Verriton: I have crushed many so-called heroes of the Wastes in my time.
Thorin Verriton: These humans mean that much to you, Eulin?
Thorin Verriton: I spoil you too much, princeling.
Thorin Verriton: Hear me, beyondlings!
Thorin Verriton: I will challenge this hero and dragon in honorable combat!
Thorin Verriton: When I emerge victorious, your lives will be spared, and you will enter into servitude under Prince Eulin's command.
Thorin Verriton: Ha! In that unlikely case, we will acquiesce, and leave your lands. Are these terms acceptable?
Thorin Verriton: ...So...
Thorin Verriton: ...little Eulin was right.
Thorin Verriton: I am a Lagohm of my word. The Beyond shall remain beyond us.
Thorin Verriton: Perhaps you're wiser than I thought, Eulin.
Also known as King Thorin Verriton.
