Initial dialogue[edit]

Talon Silverwing

In combat, a cool head is more important than anything else. The moment you lose your focus, you have already lost the fight.

It is time for you to face me in combat. Defeat me with a calm mind and prove to me that you are worthy of my training.

I have just given you some skills that should prove useful to you. Once you have reviewed them and are ready to begin, speak with me again.

Yes Accept: "I am ready, teacher."
No Decline: "I'm not worthy!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Talon Silverwing: "Good! Remember, never show your opponent the slightest sign of weakness. You must define the battle: force your opponent to fight off-balance, and never allow him to determine the course of the combat."
Talon Silverwing: "Focus! I am your opponent: my weapon is an extension of my will. You can see that will at work in every twitch of muscle in my face, my arm, my feet. If you focus on my weapon, you lose sight of the real threat: me."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Talon Silverwing

You have what it takes to become a Warrior, <Player name>. Just remember that which I have taught you this day.
