Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Korvus
"Well played, friends. Well played. I am a member of Norgu's acting troupe, the infamous Lyssan Fools. Norgu has recently completed his magnum opus, "Norgu's Nightfall," roughly based on your adventures with him. He's called the troupe together to perform it for Academy consideration. If we win this award, we shall be the most celebrated entertainers in Vabbi. Nay, the entire world! It would mean a great deal to us, and especially Norgu, if you, the original cast and crew, could attend the performance at the Grand Forum of Vabb."
Yes Accept: "Anything for an old friend."
No Decline: "No thanks. We finally learned what happened with the Brave Lanterns."
Ask Ask: "Please attend our performance at the Grand Forum of Vabb."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Norgu's Nightfall
Norgu: "My fellows! I present for your consideration, a life's work... my ultimate performance... "Norgu's Nightfall!"
Narrator: "Elona. Land of the Golden Sun. A land of heroes. Our story begins in peril and danger. A dark god descends, bringing with him... the Nightfall."
"Kormir": "Oh no. Nightfall is at hand. Please, heroes of the world, help Elona in its time of need."
"Kormir": "We will help fight the Nightfall! But, first we must find a hero even more brave and heroic than we are!"
"Kormir": "Where will we find such a hero?"
"Norgu": "There is no need to search! A true hero knows where trouble reigns!"
"Norgu": "I am Norgu! The hero you need to stop Abaddon and the Nightfall!"
"Hero": "What should we do, Norgu?"
"Norgu": "We must attack Varesh or she will end the world!"
Narrator: "Our brave heroes journey to Kourna. But their plans are foiled when Varesh summons demons that scatter their fellowship across Kourna...."
"Varesh": "Ha ha ha. I will kill those Sunspears... as soon as I can find them."
"Norgu": "Luckily I have found this sanctuary for us! Varesh will never find us now!"
"Hero": "Norgu, you are so brave."
"Kormir": "We should go north to Vabbi."
Narrator: "But their way to Vabbi was blocked!"
"Kormir": "Our way to Vabbi is blocked!"
"Norgu": "Aha! My corsair friends shall help us through! They have a smuggler's passage to the north... to my homeland of Vabbi... where I am a famous actor! We can seek the help of the three princes!"
Narrator: "But the princes ignore their council. Varesh sends her troops north under the guise of hunting Sunspears. But she is really preparing a dark ritual to consume the land. The brave, brave, brave..."
Norgu: "...Brave... that's four "braves." You aren't reading it right."
Narrator: "Sigh. The brave, brave, brave... BRAAAAVE Norgu slays the evil demon and chases Varesh through the Desolation and into the mouth of torment."
"Hero": "Oh no. We are in the Realm of Torment, Abaddon's dark realm of secrets and torment. Where do we go? What do we do?"
"Abaddon": "Bwa ha ha ha! You cannot defeat me! I am an EVIL GOD!"
"Norgu": "Stand strong, friends! We few, we happy few! We band of heroes! For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be forever remembered a hero on Nightfall Day!"
Narrator: "Norgu and his brave, brave, brave, brave band of heroes fight Abaddon."
"Abaddon": "AHHHHH! I am forslain!"
Narrator: "Yet, after every Nightfall comes the dawn of a new day."
Narrator: "In Elona, land of the Golden Sun."
Norgu: "Let us dance!"
Records Keeper Palin
"This year's nominees for "Greatest Play in Vabbi and, indeed the Whole World" are: Lord of the Strings, Summertime for Bokka, Norgu's Nightfall, and Drakes on a Plain. Those who have been nominated, please attend the Academy's award ceremony in Resplendent Makuun."
Awards Ceremony
Bahskir: "We had many wonderful nominees this year. However, one stood out in particular for the "Greatest Play in Vabbi and, Indeed, the Whole World" award."
Bahskir: "Without further ado..."
Bahskir: "The award for "Greatest Play in Vabbi and, Indeed, the Whole World" goes to..."
Bahskir: "Norgu's Nightfall!"
Bahskir: "Will the players please come up and accept their reward."
Bahskir
"Here is your award. Prince Bokka wanted to see you, I believe."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Prince Bokka the Magnificent
"Norgu, dear Norgu. Many are the buffets devoured by that voracious appetite and many more are the hours consumed by that apt wit. Congratulations to you all. Indeed it is a pleasure to even have a world in which to celebrate."

Notes[edit]

  • Although the initial dialogue does not indicate Norgu as a requirement for the whole quest, there will be pauses during the performance of the play, where his comments would be, and the objectives will state that Norgu must be present to continue.
    • If you are near the "play" without Norgu in your party, the remaining dialogue will continue, including the acted "Norgu". Only the actual Norgu's dialogue will be missing.
  • However you do need to have Norgu in your party at the "Receive the "Greatest Play in Vabbi, and Indeed, the Whole World" award." part of the quest, because if that condition is not fulfilled, you will not be able to talk to Bashkir to receive the award. Parties should ensure that Norgu is at least present before entering Resplendent Makuun to attend the awards ceremony.
  • When "Abaddon" is "killed" he leaves a corpse that can be exploited.

Trivia[edit]

  • The dialogue of The Shrine of Maat quest mentions Norgu's Nightfall.
  • The line "We few, we happy few! We band of heroes! For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be forever remembered a hero on Nightfall Day!" is a parody of Henry V by William Shakespeare.
  • The three competing nominees for "The Greatest Play in Vabbi" are all references to real movies: Lord of the Rings (Lord of the Strings), Snakes on a Plane (Drakes on a Plain), and Springtime for Hitler (Summertime for Bokka).
  • Part of the narrator's first line in the intermediate dialogue is from the starting cinematics for new characters in the Nightfall campaign. In fact, the entire "play" closely parallels the story line the character follows through out completion of the campaign.
  • At the end of the play and after recieving the reward, the cast dances with the following animations:
    • Narrator, "Abaddon", and "Hero" - male Ranger dance
    • "Kormir" and "Varesh" - female Elementalist dance
    • "Norgu" - male Warrior dance
  • The watching Vabbian nobles also show their appreciation with applause by way of the /clap emote.
