Initial dialogue[edit]

Howland the Elementalist
"I don't have time for chitchat. Your assignment is this: go down to the river and kill a skale. You should find a small horde of them, since they hunt there this time of day. Collect a shimmering scale and bring it back to me. Go now."
Yes Accept: "Yes, sir."
No Decline: "I don't think I can handle this."
Ask Ask: "Must I hold your hand? The task is simple: go to the river, kill the skale, get a single shimmering scale. Don't come back until you do."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Howland the Elementalist
"By bringing back this scale, you've shown me you have enough competence to be trained in a few skills. I'll go back into the city and tell Sir Tydus you do indeed have some potential.
Haversdan will be here shortly to supervise your further development."
