Quotes[edit]

Early in the game.

"<Character name>? Yes, I think I've heard of you."
"Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names."
"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."
"Well, no matter where you go, at least you're finally getting somewhere."
"You're one of the Sunspears, aren't you? Shouldn't you be guarding something?"

After Jokanur Diggings.

"Are you the heroes who ventured into the ruins? How very brave of you."
"I never listen to seers. They just make things up."
"It takes more than charging blindly into some old ruins to convince me you're a hero."
"My new house is nearly ready. Do you think it would be wrong to use stones from the ruins?"
"The rumors of a living darkness in the ruins seem to have been true. I told the Elders to do something about that."

After Blacktide Den.

"Go tell the Kournans we will not fight them. We want peace in Istan in our time."
"I fear the rumors of war may be true. If Varesh Ossa wishes to conquer Istan, what can we do to stop her?"
"I cannot imagine that either Vabbi or Kourna would allow a war in Istan. The very idea is ludicrous."
"War is costly in both gold and soldiers. It must be avoided."
"We have no issue with the Kournans. Why do they insist on war?"

After completion of the Consulate Docks mission.

"I do not trust Kourna. Why aren't they counter-attacking? What is Varesh Ossa planning?"
"I told the Elders to keep a leash on that dog, Kormir. It seems I was right."
"Kormir! Bah! This is all her fault! She was too impulsive. Kourna would have accepted our treaty in time."
"Kourna has been deeply insulted. We must give them Kormir in chains if we are to have peace."
"Out of my sight, Sunspear! Your kind gets no respect from me today."

After completion of the Moddok Crevice mission.

"Are the Sunspears safe?"
"Do not speak to me, Sunspear mutt."
"I worry about the Sunspears. When the Kournans are done with them, who will protect Istan?"
"Let Varesh waste her energy hunting the Sunspears. We win, either way."
"Varesh Ossa, they say, is descended from a true King of Elona. She is simply seizing her birthright."

After completion of the Grand Court of Sebelkeh mission.

"How did you manage to convince the three princes to listen?"
"I have been watching you, <player name>. Your efforts are heroic. Istan will remember."
"Vabbi? Allies? Are you joking? What will they want in return?"
"Well, well. Vabbian allies. Perhaps you have more worth than your friends, Sunspear."
"Why ally with the Vabbians? Just make peace with Varesh."

After completion of the Ruins of Morah mission.

"Even in Vabbi, they know this is the end of the world."
"It doesn't matter now. Nothing does. Nightfall is upon us."
"It's the end of the world as we know it, but I feel fine."
"Nightfall is a curse from the gods! How would they wish such evil upon us?"
"Varesh. This is all her fault. You fought well, <player name>, but there is nothing a mortal could do."

After completion of the Abaddon's Gate mission.

"I admit I was wrong about you Sunspears. Maybe you do have some worth."
"Nightfall is over, and Istan still stands! Praise Dwayna!"
"Thank you, for everything you did to help this country."
"Well done, Sunspear! All of Istan will remember your name!"
"Yes, yes. Very well done. I eat my words. Are you satisfied?"

Dialogue[edit]

The Tribunal[edit]

  • Go tell the Kournans we will not fight them. We want peace in Istan in our time.
  • I fear the rumors of war may be true. If Varesh Ossa wishes to conquer Istan, what can we do to stop her.
  • I cannot imagine that either Vabbi or Kourna would allow a war in Istan. The very idea is ludicrous.
  • War is costly in both gold and soldiers. It must be avoided.
  • We have no issue with the Kournans. Why do they insist on war?

Trivia[edit]

  • "Peace in our time" is possibly a reference to an oft-misquoted Neville Chamberlain speech prior to WWII.
  • "It's the end of the world as we know it, but I feel fine." is likely a reference to the REM song of the same name.
  • "If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure" is often attributed to former US Vice President Dan Quayle; the quote originated in a MAD magazine article as something Quayle might say.
