New Dialog[]

Town Crier

Town Crier tells you, "A friend of mine told me about this great new device that lets you know when someone's at your door. You see, it rings this bell, that way, if you're in the basement... well... yes, I suppose you could knock. But, this thing is nice and loud and you could hear it even if you're in a mansion and... yes, fine I suppose you could knock loudly and holler. And you could always just hop through a window and let yourself in."

Town Crier tells you, "After my shift I'm going to head over to Celcynd in Rithwic to turn in my gold stamped letters--I hear the Explorer Society is issuing new armor and weapons these days."

Town Crier tells you, "All they said I needed to do was to crush the Calling Stone attached to their pamphlet and they would come to take me away to a better place. A place where I was something more than an underpaid information broker for the masses..."

Town Crier tells you, "I have a cousin who works in the High Queen's castle. She told me that Elysa awoke and seemed like a new person. She said that she overheard Elysa speaking with Asheron, and that she told Asheron that she didn't need him anymore. What can all this mean?"

Town Crier tells you, "Last night this strange person walked up to me and handed me some sort of recruitment pamphlet. It was right, I do feel unappreciated."

Town Crier tells you, "My brother's friend's sister's boyfriend's father said there was some commotion out on Aphus Lassel a few days ago. The whole town, if you can call it that, was in an uproar over something about a sacrifice."

Town Crier tells you, "Now that the High Queen is awake, we've been told that she might once again walk amongst us."

Town Crier tells you, "Royal Guards in Lytelthorpe are looking for individuals to help in divine secrets that lie in deep caverns that stretch to the sea. Additionally, there is a call out in capital cities looking for adventurers who wish to help find the failed assassin, who tried to kill the High Queen."

Town Crier tells you, "Strange things have been happening lately. There are reports of adventurers disappearing from the Marescent Plateau and of suspicious looking people dressed in black stalking the towns late at night..."

Town Crier tells you, "The Explorer Society has taken on a whole new look--have you seen their new armor?"

Town Crier tells you, "The furniture vendors have a few new houshold items in stock now. I wish I could go home and enjoy all the things I've bought, but I have to stand out here in the cold just so you can get the latest news and information. No, no, don't worry about me, I'll be fine out here. All alone. Without something hot to drink to keep me warm..."

Town Crier tells you, "The High Queen has awoken!"

Town Crier tells you, "Things seem to have changed since High Queen Elysa woke. She's increased pay for us town criers, and even increased the activity of the Royal Guard. There's no telling where she might be looking to do next."

Town Crier tells you, "Those signs in the capital cities are peculiar. I kept thinking to myself when I used them."

Town Crier tells you, "Those snowmen are back. It's weird having snow talk to you... It kinda gives me the creeps."

Town Crier tells you, "Why don't we get a snowman to stand out here in the cold all day. Wouldn't that make more sense than having me freezing solid? That way we Town Criers could take vacations in the winter months and visit our families. Maybe I could even go to the islands. I hear they are pretty nice this time of year. We so need a union."
