Bart: Ah! You must be <Character>!
Bart: My name's Bart. I'm a... traveling alchemist!
Bart: I need your help!
Bart: You arrived at the right time. I need your help with a bit of prep-work.
Bart: You see, I just arrived too and haven't had time to stock ingredients for my potions.
Bart: I know a good place where you can gather them. You might be familiar with it too!
Bart: I think the alchemists in Falconreach also use the place to gather most of their ingredients!
Bart: Please bring back as many as you can, we're going to need it.
- Fungus Among Us
Bart: <Character>! Good that you're here!
Bart: I'm dealing with a lot of fungus-related problems here. I was asked to find a way to get rid of that pesky fungus that's infesting Dragesvard.
Bart: But it's like they expect me to vanish it with a snap of my fingers!
Bart: My fingers are too fuzzy to snap, <Character>! How am I supposed to do that?!
Bart: (Wow, not even a giggle? You're cold.) Anyway! I would be able to help more if I knew what exactly we're dealing with here!
Bart: I need you to go to the Northlands and get a bunch of fungus samples for me so I can analyze them and find a way to get rid of them...
- Turn up the Heat
Bart: Welcome back, <Character>. I've been analyzing the samples you brought me and came to some interesting conclusions.
Bart: While the samples have seemingly different properties and functions, they all seem... connected somehow.
Bart: If they are, it means there could be a connection in their weakness as well!
Bart: I need you to take the samples to extreme climates to see how they react to extreme conditions.
Bart: So go! Jump into a volcano or something!
- To the Bottom
Bart: So, fire didn't seem to do much. Maybe some intense pressure?
Bart: How about the ocean floor?
Bart: I can't believe I'm suggesting that, but it's for the good of the people!
Bart: And since some fool dumped a bunch of water breathing potions into the ocean, it should be safe to do so!
Bart: So go! Confer with the fishes! Let's see how the sample reacts to water and pressure!
- No Mountain Far Enough
Bart: There's my favorite errand runner!
Bart: So water and the pressure did nothing either... Hmmm that's quite weird.
Bart: Maybe it can be blown away!
Bart: Or electrocuted!
Bart: Don't look so concerned I would never send you to anything too dangerous!
Bart: I mean... there was the volcano, and the bottom of the ocean. But you're tough, you can handle that!
Bart: Now go and help me find a way to get rid of this fungal-consuming threat!
- Rock & Roll
Bart: You look... like you've been through a lot.
Bart: What are you glaring at me for?!
Bart: Ok fine. So electrocution and harsh winds had no results.
Bart: My own experiments of prolonged sunlight, darkness, or bacon didn't have any results either.
Bart: ...Say... What's your opinion on standing in front of a rockslide?
Bart: Ok I get it! No rockslides! But maybe you can go to a nearby cave?
Bart: It's infested by Nature elementals. It's our last chance!
- The Potion
Bart: So not even earth did the trick, huh?
Bart: No matter! I figured out a way to do it while you were gone.
Bart: By combining certain elements in a very specific way rather than one by one.
Bart: Why the sour face? I couldn't have done this without you!
Bart: I experimented on the samples you left behind after each of your adventures and found the solution!
Bart: (Not like you would understand my genius...)
Bart: Now stop being a grouch and test the potion on the fungi!
Bart: Now that's more like it! As for your payment...
Bart: Well, there's good news and bad news.
Bart: Good news, the potion works a treat. Those fungal fiends didn't know what hit them!
Bart: Bad news, you dropped pretty much all of my supply on your flyover.
Bart: It'll take some time to rebrew the stocks, and the DragonLords aren't exactly happy that it'll be delayed.
Bart: So I can't quite pay you. Yet. But, if you want to help fund the next iteration with some Dragon Coins...
Bart: I can recompense you with this old, I mean, antique, Potion Vending Machine for your home!
Bart: What's up?
- Who are you?
Bart: My name's Bartholomew, but people usually just call me Bart.
- What are you doing here?
Bart: I heard that people were in need of an alchemist here, and I happen to be quite good at brewing potions. As well as... other concoctions.
Bart: Surprised that a moglin does his healing through potions rather than healing magic? I get that a lot!
Bart: I just never had the magical talent the other moglins seem to possess. So I learned how to make potions instead!
- Other concoctions?
Bart: Well... I brew different things for different problems. And there are plenty of problems here in Dragonsgrasp.
Bart: Maybe I can brew something for you if you have any... problems.
- What happened to your ear?
Bart: Heh... that's a long story. Let's just say that I found myself in a weird place with many powerful creatures.
Bart: One of them went for me, but luckily only got half of my ear.
Also known as Bartholomew.
