- "Oh, hello. What are you doing lollygagging in town? Shouldn't you be out there slaying beast and breaking a sweat? My deadline is almost here!"
- Alcazia Tangle
- "Oh, hello. I bet you're wondering what such a famous personality is doing all the way out here. No, no. I don't do autographs. That would just cheapen the mood.
- I'm working on a new piece for the Monastery Gazette. A sexy exposé on all things adventurous. I can tell by your smell that you're on a mission...or out of soap. How I would love to follow you on your exploits. Watch you destroy your enemies with ruthless impunity; witness how you scrub those tough-to-clean blood stains off your armor. Allow me the privilege to tag along and observe, would you?"
