Quest information[edit]


Required Hero: Norgu

Initial dialogue[edit]

Prince Bokka the Magnificent

"Oh, <Character Name>, I never got a chance to thank you for saving me. As for you, Norgu, stay away from my buffet!"
"I must admit, I am still rather shaken from the attempt on my life. I never thought that I could be a target in my own home...how could this have happened? I want to know, I want to know, and I want to know what you know, as soon as you know it! Norgu, you've dealt with that spineless Theatre Manager Daudi before. Go with <Player Name> and find out how he could let this happen! I am tempted to call my executioner again, I tell you, but I just got this new manager broken in. I go through them so quickly..."
Yes Accept: "Yes. Tragedy is when you cut off a theatre manager's head."
No Decline: "No thanks. Comedy is when Theatre Manager Daudi goes to the chopping block and dies."
Ask Ask: "Have you found out how and why Theatre Manager Daudi let those would-be assassins get anywhere near me?"

Intermediate dialogue 1[edit]

Theatre Manager Daudi: "Norgu! Oh, thanks the gods, I thought for sure you were the headsman."
Norgu "Well, if you don't tell us how you let all those Kournans get to the prince, you'll be seeing him soon enough."
Theatre Manager Daudi: "But I didn't know they were Kournans! I had to hire more actors. My regulars quit! Bokka only pays them in bread. And these new actors applied! They agreed to work cheap, so I overlooked their lack of proper references...."
Norgu "Maybe you're right. I guess we'll have to let the prince decide what to do from here."
Theatre Manager Daudi: "You know I'd never do anything to hurt the prince. Please, you have to tell him it wasn't my fault...I have kids! Oh, it's no use. There's no way out...."
Norgu "Calm down...I'll do what I can. Just stop shaking. You're going to end up shaking this whole palace apart!"

Intermediate dialogue 2[edit]

Prince Bokka the Magnificent

"What? The real actors all decided to go overseas and work for someone else who lets them keep their profits AND gives them sprawling buffets every night? How dare they! It's all THEIR fault this happened! My bread is just as good as any lousy buffet could ever be."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Prince Bokka the Magnificent

"I don't like this, but you did do what I asked, so I guess I should give you something. Take this and go!"


  • Although Theatre Manager Daudi does not spawn during some quests, such as Til Death Do Us Part..., Norgu will speak his part of the dialogue upon approaching Daudi's normal location, allowing the quest to progress to the next objective.


  • The name of this quest is a reference to the catchphrase of Comic Book Guy, a character from the Simpsons.
  • The accept and reject Dialogue are probably a reference to the quote "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die", attributed to Mel Brooks.
