Town Crier

Free Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "I hear tell the Explorer's Society may have some competition now..."

Town Crier tells you, "I hear that all over Dereth people are rewarding adventurers who will help them significantly better than they would before."

Town Crier tells you, "I've heard a couple rumors about increased activity around the Gear Knight invasion points."

Town Crier tells you, "I've heard reports that the Arcanum have been up to some excavating lately. I wonder what they're up to."

Town Crier tells you, "I've heard stories from the newest arrivals from Ispar of a strange orb they found when they first arrived. I wonder what that's about."

Town Crier tells you, "It might be worth heading out to Frore again, I hear someone is interested in an item from there."

Pyreal Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "The Arcanum has been very interested in a new gem discovered inside of The Orphanage, I'm sure if you got it for them they would reward you nicely for your troubles."

Town Crier tells you, "I've heard rumors from Dereth's newest arrivals from Ispar of a group of people who've dedicated themselves to making it simpler for them to get into the adventurous spirit needed to survive ..."

Town Crier tells you, "Where were these guys when I got here? I could've used some 'adventerous spirit'... Might've become something more than a town crier then..."

Town Crier tells you, "Mairisa bint Fuda is searching out a box with an unknown treasure, I've heard whispers this box may be hidden in Frore."

Town Crier tells you, "My cousin brought me this strange Gear. I have no idea what it's for. Maybe the Arcanum would want it."

Town Crier tells you, "There's a Master Craftsman from the Arcanum who's asking adventurers for help in a "Matter of grave importance". If you're interested, you can find him in Xarabydun."

Town Crier tells you, "There have been several rumors floating around of adventurers finding shattered Mana Forge Keys in the Gear Knight Invasion Area in the Direlands. If you think you could fix one, it may be worth checking out."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant

Free Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I don't know about these Gear Knights. I mean, they're all mechanical bits. How can you trust someone you can't share a stout with? Madness, I say. They're clearly all evil."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Pocketwatch? Puzzle box? Where's my snifter trinket?"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So that strange guy on Aphus Lassel decided to increase how much he pays for tusks, and how often he'll take them. But who can blame a guy for going bananas when he is surrounded by monkeys. I still want a banana daiquiri, have those still not been invented yet?"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You say Ayan, I say Baqur."

You say, "Ayan!"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Baqur!"

You say, "Ayan!"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Baqur!"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Go stout!"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "No, seriously, go get me a stout."

Stout Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I guess Dereth was due for some cleaning, now adventurers are being asked to take care of the Tusker, Olthoi and Eater problem weekly. I'm surprised Olthoi are even a problem, the last guy I saw killing off Olthoi was so into his work he couldn't stop to say hello."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So, I was in Xarabydun recently, to see if I could sell my plans for a gearcrafted snifter to their Tinkerers, and they wouldn't even meet with me! Can you believe it?! What could be more important than a gearcrafted snifter?"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Someone was telling me a group of people got together to make life in Dereth easier for the new kids who've arrived. Bah, I say. I remember when I had to slog uphill through the snow to a druge cave, both ways! Man, those were the days..."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Suzuhara Sheshumi is rewarding helpful people even more for bringing her some medicine. Come to think of it she has been sick for years, and the medicine never seems to make her better it almost seems to make her worse."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I figured it out! I think that..."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "..."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "... Wait what was I saying? Oh ya it's time for another stout."
