Dialogue[edit]

Gunnar's Hold[edit]

Standard dialogue

"Ho there, <Player name>! I see you're a brave one. Talented too, I wager. If you show me your mettle, I might just put in a good word for you with my fellows.

Do you have any journals or records of your great deeds? With that sort of written evidence, I can prove your worth to the other Dwarves!

Best of all, you'll earn yourself some Hero skill points, which you can spend to teach your Heroes new skills."

Ask How can I improve my reputation among the Dwarves?
(before attaining rank 8 on the Deldrimor title track)
"Dwarves value hard labor more then empty words, my friend. Go find some Dwarves and perform services for them; they'll warm up to you in time.
You can also seek out the Beacons of Droknar, which were created by the Dwarves to monitor the wilds. Also, we value strict record keeping, so copy
down everything you do in a book. Bring that book to me, and I can use it to prove your accomplishments in the name of King Jalis!"
(after attaining rank 8 on the Deldrimor title track)
"You've accomplished more than I'd have ever imagined! That's good...but not good enough anymore. Now, you'll really need to put forth effort. The best way to do that is to seek out the Beacons of Droknar in Hard Mode. Plus, the written records of your achievements in Hard Mode will carry more weight 'round these parts C'mon. Show you're as tough as any Dwarf and get back out there!"
Ask Written evidence?
"Yes, you can track your progress aiding Ogden in a Hero's Handbook or record your achievements below ground in a Master Dungeon Guide.
I can provide you with blank copies of either of these books. No doubt there are other books out there that show you know your way around, but you'll need to find those on your own."
Yes I would like an empty Hero's Handbook.
... to be added ...
Yes I would like an empty Master Dungeon Guide.
... to be added ...
Yes Look at my Hero's Handbook.
(with a book which is at least half filled out)
"Look at this. You've done it. When I show the other Dwarves your Hero's Handbook, they will definitely recognize you as someone special. You'll have to surrender the book to me, through. In exchange, you will earn:"
"# Dwarf reputation points"
"# Dwarf Gold"
"# Dwarf Experience"
Yes Yes, take the book.
No I think I'll hold onto it a little longer.
Yes Look at my Master Dungeon Guide.
(with a book which is not at least half filled out)
You haven't even filled this Master Dungeon Guide halfway. You'll want to add more to this before you go showing it to people.
(with a book which is at least half filled out)
... to be added ...
Yes Here is a completed Hero's Handbook. (dialogue option no longer available)
(with an incomplete book)
"This Hero's Handbook is not complete. What, you think Dwarves can't read or something?"
(with a complete book)
"Look at this! You've done it! When I show other Dwarves your Hero's Handbook, they will definitely recognize you as someone special. But to do that, you'll have to surrender the book to me."
"You gain +2,500 Dwarven reputation points, but lose the book forever. Granted, you can fill out another book later. You'll just have to do everything all over again. Such a small feat would never bother a true champion, though, eh! Are you ready to surrender your book?"
YesYes, take the book.
NoI think I'll hold onto it a little longer.
Yes Here is a completed Master Dungeon Guide. (dialogue option no longer available)
(with an incomplete book)

YesYes, take the book.
NoI think I'll hold onto it a little longer.
No I'll be on my way.
Ask I'm interested in skills for my Heroes.
"Hard work and dedication is the only thing that ever moved a mountain, that's what I always say. Which profession are you interested in?"

When talked to for the first time after reaching rank 1 or higher on the Deldrimor title track:

You're now considered [Deldrimor title] by most Dwarves. You might want to display this title while fighting the Destroyers. A true Dwarven hero like yourself would be a potent force in the battle against those dark minions!
