Grimal's Tribute to Talad
Required: 2 Beer Mugs and 450 tria.
→ ’ give Grimal a Beer Mug (you have to manually do it since there is no dialogue)
- Grimal eagerly takes the mug and sips from the beer. -
NPC: Ahhh, now that hit the spot.
NPC: My thanks, Enkidukai.
- Grimal takes another sip. -
NPC: You seem to be of the helpful sort.
NPC: Will you help an old dwarf strengthen his ties with Talad?
YOU: Of course I will help.
- Grimal nods, then takes another sip from the beer, as he wipes the foam from his beard he looks at you with fixed eyes. -
NPC: Let me know when you are ready to start.
YOU: Now is as good as ever.
- Grimal glances towards the red iron temple, then refocuses his gaze on you. -
NPC: Talad has been good to me.
NPC: During my time as a member of the Sunshine Squadron, I have been in many a battle.
- Grimal pauses for a moment and rubs his face with both hands. -
NPC: I know Talad held his protective hand over me many times.
NPC: But I have rarely thanked Him properly for doing so.
NPC: I need you to help me to give proper thanks to Talad for all He has done.
- Grimal picks up his axe and runs a thum down the edge. -
NPC: Now that I am retired, I have more than enough time to give thanks.
- Grimal returns the axe to his side. -
NPC: I hear there is a servant of Talad in Gugrontid.
NPC: Go and tell him I want to thank Talad, I'm sure he can think of some way for me to do that properly.
- Grimal takes another sip from his beer. -
→ ’ to Quasus
YOU: Hello, Grimal would like help with giving thanks to Talad.
- Quasus listens intently as you tell him Grimal's plan. -
NPC: I see…
NPC: Well Enkidukai, I would suggest that your friend should write a book as a tribute to Talad.
NPC: He could perhaps write about how he spoke to Talad and how Talad then kept him safe during his battles.
NPC: This way everyone will know what a great warrior he was and what a caring God Talad is for keeping him safe through all those horrific battles…
- Quasus nods. -
NPC: Yes, I would say a book is the way to go.
- Quasus stares at the crystal for a few seconds. -
NPC: If your friend finishes his book, bring a copy to me and I will take it to Talad's main temple.
NPC: It would not hurt to take another copy to Ojaveda to be placed at their shrine.
- Quasus smiles at you. -
NPC: I eagerly await your return with the book.
→ ’ to Grimal
YOU: Quasus suggests that you write a book explaining how Talad helped you.
- Grimal rubs the top of his head and looks at you with a raised eyebrow. -
NPC: I must write a book you say.
NPC: Hmm…
NPC: This is not quite what I had in mind, but if the priest told you so, then I will do it.
- Grimal looks to the ground, then back to you. -
NPC: I will require some help with this.
NPC: Will you help me again?
YOU: I have time to help, what do you need?
- Grimal gives a sigh of relief. -
NPC: You are warming this old dwarfs heart, friend.
NPC: Let's see, I will need lots of ink and paper, would you be so kind as to fetch me two.
NPC: This will give me some time to reflect over what I want to write about Talad.
- Grimal starts swinging his axe at his side. -
NPC: What to write…
NPC: What to write…
NPC: Think Grimal think.
→ ’ to Jayose
YOU: Could I have two pieces of ink and paper?
- Jayose glances up at you over a pile of papers. -
NPC: Have, No.
NPC: But you can buy two from me for 50 tria each.
YOU: Here is your tria.
NPC: And here are your two Ink and Paper.
→ ’ to Grimal
YOU: I have the ink and paper.
- Grimal only realises you're standing there as you hand him the ink and paper. -
NPC: Back so soon?
NPC: Thanks for getting them for me, but I was unable to come up with an idea for the book.
- Grimal looks out over Hydlaa. -
NPC: What I need is a muse.
- Grimal ponders for a few minutes, then gives a big smile. -
NPC: I nice big frothy muse…
NPC: Bring me another beer, that will do the trick.
NPC: Lubricate this ol' brain of mine.
YOU: Here is your beer.
- Grimal takes a long sip from the beer. -
NPC: Now I'm ready to write this book.
NPC: Come back and ask me if I am done in a few days, I might be done by then.
- Grimal takes another sip of beer. -
- You have to wait for 5 minutes. -
YOU: Are you done yet?
- Grimal glares at you. -
NPC: Ah, what a joke, funny Enkidukai.
NPC: I am only just starting the book now.
NPC: I needed another muse…
NPC: or two, before I could start.
- Grimal chuckles softly. -
NPC: Come back in a few more days.
- You have to wait for 5 minutes. -
YOU: Are You done now?
- Grimal looks at you. -
- His hands and face are covered in ink-stains. -
- His face is filled with a deep look of despair. -
NPC: Almost, young one.
NPC: Just give me a few more days.
- You have to wait for 5 minutes. -
YOU: What about now, you must be done?
- Grimal smiles broadly. -
NPC: YOU, my friend.
NPC: I am finally done.
- Grimal sighs in relief. -
NPC: The only problem is that my spelling is absolutely terrible, so I would like to have it read and corrected by a much more able person than I.
NPC: Will you help me find a good scribe to do so?
YOU: Yes I can do that.
- Grimal smile widens further. -
NPC: That is marvellous news.
NPC: Here take this and find a scribe.
- Grimal goes to hand you his book but pauses. -
NPC: Actually…
NPC: Would you like to hear some of what I wrote, I would hate for it not to be worthy of Talad.
YOU: Yes, I’d love to hear what Talad did for you.
- The old wrinkled face of Grimal smiles as you speak. -
NPC: I was hoping you would.
- He opens the small book and picks a passage to read for you. -
NPC: Ok, let me read you this…
NPC: As I was accepted in to the Sunshine Squadron I knew this was what Talad had wanted of me.
NPC: Feeling his presence behind me during all of my trials and tribulations my faith was reward, all of my prayers were answered with the bestowing of the Squadron’s badge.
NPC: To celebrate my acceptance I had an axe made, one that I had spend a long time designing, it was a perfect embodyment of all I felt of Talad.
NPC: Though all that I had asked of him was little compared to what he would soon put me thought to test my faith…
- Grimal closes the book. -
NPC: Do you like it?
NPC: Of course you do.
NPC: Here, you can take this to get checked over now.
→ ’ to Talisa
YOU: Can you take a look at this?
- Talisa inspects the book. -
NPC: What would you like me to do with this?
YOU: Can you check all the spelling for me?
- Talisa nods. -
NPC: I see…
NPC: Very well.
- She then flips through the book. -
NPC: It will probably take me a few hours to completely correct the spelling in this one, quite bumpy handwriting.
NPC: And it's going to cost you, say, 100 tria.
NPC: Just ask me if I am done in a few hours.
- Talisa removes an empty book from her backpack and starts to work. -
- You have to wait for 5 minutes. -
YOU: Have you finished?
- Talisa smiles as she holds out the books in front of you. -
NPC: Yes, I am.
NPC: Do you have the money?
- Talisa holds out her other hand. -
YOU: Here you are Talisa.
- Talisa hands you the books. -
NPC: Pleasure doing business with you, Sir.
→ ’ to Grimal
YOU: Here is your corrected draft.
- Grimal quickly flips through the corrected book and laughs. -
NPC: You never really know how bad your writing is until someone fixes it all for you.
NPC: This looks really nice…
NPC: Thank you friend!
NPC: You have helped me once again.
NPC: I'm afraid I have one more favour to ask of you.
NPC: Would you be so kind as to take this book to Jayose and have him make some copies of it?
YOU: Sure, I can help you out again.
- Grimal smiles. -
NPC: You are too kind.
NPC: I require two copies of this one.
- Grimal hands you a book. -
NPC: You can hand them to me at the same time.
→ ’ to Jayose
YOU: I was told to give you this.
- Jayose takes the book and studies it. -
NPC: This is not one of my books.
NPC: What do you need doing with it?
YOU: I need two copies made.
- Jayose gives an annoyed smile. -
NPC: It would be my pleasure, I guess…
- Jayose nods as he removes two empty books and a glyph from a drawer. -
- He performs his copy book spell twice and nods at you as he returns the glyph to the drawer. -
NPC: There we go.
NPC: It will cost you 250 tria.
- Jayose taps his fingers on the table as he waits for the money. -
YOU: Here is your tria.
- Jayose slides the books towards you and takes the money. -
NPC: Please call again.
→ ’ to Grimal
YOU: Here are your books.
- Grimal applauds as you give him the books. -
NPC: Well done, Enkidukai.
NPC: I have one last favour to ask of you.
NPC: Would you deliver a book to Toda in Ojaveda and after one to Quasus in Gugrontid for me?
YOU: I think I can do that.
- Grimal smiles with glee. -
NPC: You are truly being amazing to me, kind Enkidukai.
NPC: You can take this first book to Toda.
NPC: If she asks what it is for just tell her about me.
- Grimal hands you a book. -
NPC: And this one is for Quasus.
- He then hands you another book. -
NPC: Let me know when you are done.
→ ’ give Toda a Copy of Grimal's Book
YOU: I have this book for you.
- Toda looks at you with confusion. -
NPC: What is this all about?
YOU: It is from Grimal Bloodaxe.
- Toda looks at the book and nods, smiling at you. -
- She opens it and reads over a few of the pages. -
NPC: Oh, it’s a book to give thanks to Talad.
NPC: What a great idea.
NPC: I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this before.
NPC: People normally bring items precious to them.
NPC: I will place this at Talad's shrine for all to read.
NPC: A safe journey to you friend and may Talad bless you.
→ ’ to Quasus
YOU: I am back with the book you suggested.
- Quasus seems amazed as you give him the book. -
NPC: I had given up hope that you would return with a copy for me.
NPC: It has been many days since you asked for my help.
NPC: I am glad your friend was able to complete the book.
NPC: Let me have a quick peek.
- Quasus quickly flips through the book. -
NPC: Very nice, very nice indeed…
NPC: Ah I see it is from Grimal.
NPC: A long time devout Talad follower.
NPC: Would you be interested in hearing what he thinks of Talad?
YOU: I'd love to hear some of what he has to say.
- Quasus nods. -
- Kra then flicks though the book a picks a passage before kra begins to speak. -
NPC: This seems to be a passage about one of Grimal's first expeditions…
NPC: We had been trudging though the labyrinth for two weeks, tracing back a group of creatures which had tried to break though the Bronze doors.
NPC: There had been a few little fights but nothing we couldn't handle.
NPC: When we finally caught up with them the battle was viscous, many of my new friends were torn to pieces.
NPC: All of the rest of us were injured, me and few others badly.
NPC: I could hear many of those lying in their own blood just pleading to be saved, just waiting for a healer to reach them.
NPC: I sat praying silently to Talad, praying for him to give me strength to live until help found us.
NPC: I spent my energy in prayer before fatuge over came me.
NPC: During the following night as the patrol recovered waiting for help creatures came and took many of the weakest.
NPC: Destroying them as they did.
NPC: I, despite being among the worst off was left unhalmed as those round me were taken.
NPC: I could only thank Talad when I awoke to see what had happened and felt truly belessed from that day that Talad listed to my prays.
→ ’ to Grimal
YOU: I've delivered your books.
- Grimal shakes his head. -
NPC: You are so fast, my legs would not allow me travel that fast any more.
- Grimal smiles warmly at you. -
NPC: You have done this old dwarf a great service.
NPC: I am honoured to call you my friend, YOU.
NPC: Please accept these as a token of my gratitude.
NPC: Don't be shy, come around again in the future and we can have a beer or two together.
- Grimal waves to you then starts playing with his axe. -
