"They ain't give a sh#t 'bout our efforts, Sin. Stop bothering.
Let 'em f#ck with their problems themselves."

Image
"We're heroes and no one cares, Jalib."
Image
"Welcome to tha real damn life."

Image
"We're outnumbered by snobs, woman."


Image

Image
"How 'bout yer pikin' off, aye?"

Image
"Oh, I'm sorry, that's not how this works. I'll be getting my money, one way...
[Plays with dagger] or another."
Image
"Kiss my arse, wench."

Image
"I guess it's the hard way, then."
Image
"That baby's called 'Wenchslapper' for a reason."


Image

Image
"Poor stud crossed tha wrong people. Ain't nothing new in that."

Image
"When volcano erupts, yer not tryin' to shovel lava away with ye hands — you run."


Image

Image
"Do you have specific questions, perhaps? Rather than me relaying this
damned story for the nineth time all the way through?"
Image
"Ninth time, please. Blame Wren for actin' like an idiot that night."

Image
"Very well. Though I'll have some of my own questions you must answer in return."
Image
"Shadows is tha least crap I fear."


Image

Image
"Might tell me to leave, gonna be fair 'nuff."

Image
"Not right now. How much is it to hire your services?"
Image
"I ain't a mercenary, woman. [Pauses] What's tha work?"

Image
"So that's more of a babysitter's job, right?"


Image

Image
"You're thinking like a mature person who has been through hell."
Image
"'Cause I've been."

Image
"She is a farm girl, Jalib. She always -dreamed- of being special.
Without her magic — what is left?"
Image
"I don't get it, Isabella. Yer claim ye don't believe she'll
survive, yet ye refuse to end it here and now."

Image
"What a lovely use of my abilities. To just.... swoop in. Take complete control
over someone's life and fate. Then plop them back into the world. And
woosh off. To forget all about them. What a good wizard I am."
Image
"Yer not choosin' between good and bad, if ye ask me.
Yer choosing between evil and evil."

Image
"Dontcha wanna feel yourself a clueless farmgirl who's trying to find her way to tha Friendly Hand?
Isn't it... refreshing compared to tha things ye dealt with?"

"Get tha f#ck outta here before I get actually angry."
[Reaches for weapon]

Image
"As you say. I wish no confrontation."
Image
"I'd move faster, Red. He's not joking and I'm not helping if it goes that way."

Image
"Ain't it lovely to enjoy these virgin lands after what ye turned ye home into, aye?"


Image

Image
"Since these are tha last days of yours — wanna tell me tha name of ye cult?
Might send them my regards."

Image
"I have no cult, fool... My goals are to she who plagues this land...
She will be most pleased at what is to come... soon. But..."
Image
"Mhm?"

Image
"You are free to have this."
Image
Image
"I heard unless tha Flaming Knuckles have enough evidences he's going to get set free. What's ye thoughts?"


Image

Image
"That's... that's not wise."
Image
"I deserve to benefit from these atrocities after all I've gone through."

Image
"I understand. I do... Are you about to ask if I can fix them?"
Image
"They must be either removed from my body — or start bringing use, no other ways."


Image

Image
"I'm just glad yer finally having fun at work, Isabella."

"I usually do not deny or confirm my hiring and my contracts as they are highly confidential,
but since the pretty lady asked, I am doing her a favor and bend my own rule. I was not
hired to do anything to you. Yet. That may change, however, if you keep
pissing people off. But I don't take sides."
Image
"I don't care if yer hired or not. This changes nothing."

Image
"Suit yourself."
Image
"Ah jus' had t' find oot, Jalib. Ah didna like tha'
thought o' anythin' happenin' t' ye."

Image
"Not gonna be tha first time, woman. Not gonna be tha last."


Image

Image
"The -winds- inspire madness. And if you think too much about madness you find your own."
Image
"If my simple mind understands it right..."
[Unsheathes a knife]


Image


Image
"My thoughts right now is that it's no fun when they don't scream... followed by... that's the winds.
Not you... followed by... it will pass... followed by... you should heal him."
Image
"Ye... hear me, Isabella?!"

Image
"I'm not afraid to die at your hand if it goes this far."


Image

Image
"Dinna change the subject! Whit happened?"
Image
"Talk with tha Keeper went a bit outta hand, I say."

Image
"So whit tha hell did ye say t' make 'er do -that-?"
Image
"She didn't. I did."

Image
"Ye did? Why tha hell wuid ye dae that t' yerself?"
Image
"There are... still things less familiar to me, ye know?"

"...Do I not get to try?"
Image
"Would ye whine as well when ye lose?"

Image
"Not likely."
Image
"Then bring it on."

Image
"Ye fought a stronger opponent and survived. What better reward ye may have?"


Image

Image
"Don't tell me yer been missin' me, old pervert."

Image
"Indeed! Come here, bring it in. "
Image
"No hugs. Yer been a bad boy and didn't deserve 'em."

Image
"What can I say? Bad boys never learn... "
[Reaches for knife]
Image
"I don't care 'bout his victims, if ye ask me.
But he challenged me, and someday I'll accept it."


Image

Image
"It is -the solution- to our problem. The important part is I get Glowstone.
That's... Gee El Oh... Double Ewe... Ess Tee... Oh En Eee."
Image
"I ain't that dumb! So... what's so special 'bout this Shinestone?"

Image
"-Glowstone-. Gee El Oh..."
Image
"I know I'm not worth ye time. But I -need- yer help."


Image

Image
"Four bags. You requested escort here, you got it."
Image
"Of course I did. Heading out now?"

Image
"I'm tempted to stick around just to see what trouble you get into."
Image
"Ye heard what I said by tha campfire — beautiful
women are always welcome to stay."

Image
"I'm starting to see why Sin likes you."
Image
"Here's tha list of what I need, bud. Price ain't a problem."

"This is -really- not what I -agreed- to, Nat!"
Image
"I didn't know she would come here."

Image
"You knew this all was hers though, didn't you?!
...Jalib, stop looting!"
Image
"What part of tha golem ye want as a gift, Isabella?"

Image
"None of it! I want none of it!"
Image
"I'll get my priorities straight. First, I pillage what remained here.
Second, I wanna find that woman again."


Image

Image
"My lady, the hour grows late. Have you
any other questions?"

Image
"Many, but, you know, I have not offered
you anything in turn. How about I offer
you and the guards a song?"
Image
"No songs. State your business, now!"

Image


Image
"Alright, that won't last longer then like an hour."
Image
"Then, for heck's sake, stop this bullshit, Niamh,
and lemme bash tha darn door."

Image
"Stop, Jalib! The door's unlocked.
Thurs a bloody trap on it."
Image
"He looks like a rich man. Whatcha think about
some little treasury stroll, mhm?"

Image
"Ye know tha rules. I'm silent if I'm in."


Image

Image
"Ussan hast slain mine wizard."
Image
"He committed a suicide, woman.
No apologies from our side."

Image
"Where is the book of power? Ussan has it?"
Image
"Has what?"

Image
Image
Image
"Would tha only woman who kicked my arse in tha world waste her time chasing some diary?"


Image

Image
"I... am worried this might mean we need to -repair- the connections
physically as the external magic is doing when we attatch the stone.
I admit I got two glowstone and the darksteel for a reason."
Image
"Tha day before I escaped, they were working on that crap.
Maybe they didn't... finish?"

Image
"Quite possible. Or they were thinking about changing it..."
Image
"Not they. She."

Image
"She had tha right to do what she wants with me, so she did."

"Touch me, and here's exactly what will happen. You will find yourself teleported into
the middle of the Enclave. Surrounded by no fewer than 12 Ruby Golems, an entire
Squad of Thayan Knights, and several apprentici who would love to
take a Tiefling's body and use it as a science experiment...?"
Image
Image
Image
Image
"Whatcha said, sh#tbag?"

Image
"He is -GOADING- you, Jalib! And it's -working-!"
Image
[Growls]

Image
"Precisely. Because this is what we are dealing with. A rage filled imbecile, so full
of piss and vinegar that he can coerced into becoming the aggressor..."
Image
"RED GARBAGE!"
Image

Image
"ASSAULT-!" [Wheezes]
Image
"Every single time yer told to f#ck yourself is deserved thousandfold.
Yer ain't welcome here and never will be."


Image

Image
"... ugh... I mean, I knew, I knew it... and I don't know.... right... why
a healing potion? ...I didn't... actually bite off my tounge? Did I?"
Image
"What should I do?! Ye were lookin' like yer dying!"

Image
"Yeah... I'm... I'm sorry you had to see me like that."
Image
"We ain't golems. It never surprises me seeing other sides."


Image

Image
"Don't get me wrong, she constantly puts herself at risk with her private meetings.
But she still considered you a friend, enough so to defend you. The fact that you
wouldn't visit her after such a near death encounter..."
Image
"Fine... where is she?"

Image


Image
"So the theory is that I am not... me?"
Image
"Who knows? With tha lack of facts, people make up various bullsh#t."

Image
"My memory gets foggy at times, do remind me,
what does the sign at the entrance say?"
Image
"I didn't read it."

Image
"By the looks of it, we seem to be in a temple. Yet by the words
demanding, it sounds to me as if we are in a theatre, a crowd
urging the minstrel for a tale."
Image
[Glances to Wisp]
"See what I meant, woman?"

Image
"Moments like these I miss tha portal keeper company."


Image

Image
"I have a question for you, cur."
Image
"Then bring it on."

Image
"You find it normal to force presence upon others? You slink away
when Max presents himself, you linger where you have no
business at all. You are watched, know this."
Image
"I don't care. Good luck with ye deer fights, bud."

Image
"Everytime I'm taking a breath, there's one territorial moron tellin' me to watch my steps. It's getting old."


Image

Image
"So does this ship actually belong to Candlecastle?"

Image
"Aye. Hence the flag. I'm a captain by commission,
alas, not by warrant or ownership."
Image
"Ever thought of hijacking tha ship and sailing
away to tha new, beautiful life?"

Image
"Perhaps, but I've a sense of duty."
Image
"Dontcha see tha charm in drinking at tha fastest ship in tha world in a company of some brute ye barely know?"

"What tha f#ck..."

Image
"Sh#t..."
Image
[Hisses in pain]
"Sh-shitssssshs... MMhrrrmmrphh...
F#CK!!! Sh#t, sh#t, SH#T!!!"

Image
"I... honestly would not be any different in your shoes..."
Image
"Screw stories. I want my f#cking arm back."


Image

Image

Image
"Can he feel?"
Image
"Something... My muscular memory, will it remain?"

Image
"His mind knows it had an arm. No time it had
to adjust to the reality of no arm."
Image
"Unwise question, but what's tha price?"

Image
"I ain't into such shady dealings, but restored limb is restored limb."


Image

Image
"Adventurers are always at risk. They can die like dogs every darn day.
Such life must make 'em f#ck like rabbits with no remorse and
affection. Yet they seek love?"

Image
"And they can find it. Just not the same kind of love you get...
with endless mutual toil."
Image
"Then what kinda love?"

Image
"A better fit one for when life and death are so closely knit."
Image
"When 'I'll love ya to tha grave' doesn't sound too long?"

Image
"And 'You're male... I'm female... let's make it work.' is actually a viable strategy."
Image
[Pauses]
"Ever feeling lonely yourself in this way?"

Image
"I don't know."
Image
"Means yes."

Image
"Means there are gaps I'd like to fill... but... Well...
Not sure the literal interpertation does it."
Image

Image

Image
"Yer seem to have suspiciously many contacts in normal world, I say.
I swear, I saw yer name on some damnable poster."

Image
"I signed one of them! They're still up then, hmm?"
Image
"Yer kind is feared. For some unknown reason, as yer looking quite lovely
and harmless. Mind if I interrogate ya for a while?"

Image
"Things got outta hand, so we gotta act quickly."

"Hello again..."
Image
"You don't want to go there."

Image
[Takes a Morningstar off his belt]
"That is where your wrong. Lady Blackrose
has unfinished buisness with you."
Image
"Lady Blackrose gotta stand in line, stud."

Image
"Who in the hells are you? Get out of here before you get hurt."
Image
"Rid of this man, and I will talk to you."

Image
"So who's laughing now, clown?"


Image

Image
"...And then Jalib saved the day?"
Image
"And didn't even get a cheek peck."

Image
"He appeared out of the blue. Because
of him, I was able to run away."
Image
"Ye mentioned some better reward than gold, Maria?"

Image
"Ah, yes! I've got a few copies on me."
[Hands a wanted poster]
Image
"...Yer kidding me, woman?"

Image
"I wanna meet that b#tch again, put her in a box and send to Ebon Knives keep."


Image

Image
"Any idea why tha banite scoundrels' boss is
openly accompanying Golden Wagon?"

Image
"They are building his wall."
Image
"Interesting. Morgan is a known criminal in Balder's Door.
How does one come along with another?"

Image
"What if they gonna fight for Morgan when it comes to action, what's ye thoughts?"

"With so many men f#cked, have ye ever found someone
who'll share ye love? Or vile underground creatures
like yourself don't even know what is that?"

Image
"Oh, we're all too foul. See my black heart? See
how little it aches from your barbs?"
Image
"Perhaps yer doing it wrong. Perhaps we both."

Image
"Once tha trap gonna get shut, Morgan will have no ways to escape. But so would we all."


Image

Image
"Once we all gather tomorrow, I'll tell what exactly we do. Ye gotta
keep in mind it's our last chance to catch that b#tch."

Image
"How is it our last chance exactly?"
Image
"Because Morgan ain't as stupid as some call her."

Image
"She meets with Morgan at abandoned smuggler cove. That's where we gonna start tha b#tch-hunt."


Image

Image
"If it matters, I'll keep yer part in Morgan's
destruction in secret, mhm?"

Image
"Haha. Naw. It doesn't. I will proudly talk about helping you
fight her. I'd tell it to Griel's face. As Guide or not."
Image
"I wasn't even expecting ya to come."

Image
"I -want- to though."
Image
"But why?"

Image
"Actions... not words. It's an ethos I've always tried to carry."
Image
"So... welcome to b#tch-hunters?"

Image
"With ye reputation, I bet many people are simply clueless why yer -still- not tha Guide.
Everyone gonna rejoice when ye take this role. Noone simply fits it better than ya."


Image

Image
"Ah cuid help. But ye'll noo even tell me whit sorta trouble yer in."
Image
"I'll tell ya later, when it's all done."

Image
"Ah canna help ye when it's ah done!"
Image
"Tha best thing ye can do is remain clueless, woman.
[Strokes Niamh's cheek] Have patience, aye?"

Image
"Ye know ah dinna have any. N ah worry fer ye."
Image
"Saturday, woman. Come for answers that day."

"I'll guard her."
Image
"Then assume ye came together. Stay with her."

Image
"The two of you follow me for a moment."
Image
"We're ready. Make a sending to her two minutes later."

Image
". . . What's going on in there?"
Image
"Leave tha martial part to us, woman.
[Glances to Pearl] Ready now?"

Image
"Mhm."
Image
"Make us invisible, keeper."

Image
"We use her to get rid of tha future lich. She uses us to get rid of her old enemy. It's a symbiosis."


Image

Image
"We knew it was a trap."
Image
"It didn't help ya. Last words, Morgan?"

Image
[She laughs]
"You're going to kill me in cold blood? Go ahead.
I won't stop you. Neither will I fight back."
Image
"Thanks. Yer making it easy."
Image

Image
"Someone has to do tha dirty work. I'm makin' this sacrifice."


Image

Image
"Bloody hells... there was no need for any of this."
Image
[His frenzy fades]
"So what we do with these buggers?"

Image
"Leave them. I have no qualm with Griel... directly."
Image
"Won't argue."

Image
"I understand why Griel wants an army. I am here to
stop the formation of a Lich... that is all.
Image
"We both, keeper."

Image
"Better go help ye commander, bud. He ain't in tha best shape."


Image

Image
"The Dagger, It carries a curse. I have a place to store it safely, allow
me to hold it and I swear by my mother's life that I will not keep
it from you if you demand it back."
Image
"There's only one woman who will get it. It's not you."

Image
"Who?"
Image
"It's my business now. Ye didn't do anything to have Morgan slain,
ye don't have right to demand, Terri, am I speaking clear?"

Image
"I am begging, not demanding!"
Image
"Let us just speak tomorrow when I chill, right?"


Image

Image
"Your sister. [Pats the vase]
Ye said dead. Didn't say how much dead."

Image
"I was just informed she had been ressurected, however."
Image
"It's not my problem anymore. Go pester those who did it.
Morgan died. These ashes are hers. Now pay up."

Image
"I do not mind paying up. But as you recall, in the Helm and Cloak I did
mention specifying it as her being dead and with no prospects of
returning. Something Isabella also could vouch for. Does anyone
know who ressurected Morgan?"
Image
"If ye wanna know who did it, go to Ebon Knives.
Hope ye get caged again, ye greedy b#tch."

Image
"Tha next time ye get caught, I won't come to save ya. Mind this."


Image

Image
"I don't need to be safe, woman. I just wanna relax."

Image
"Same thing. Or have you not figured that out yet?"
Image
"After tha ammount of work I did, tha last thing I wanna hear
is a bunch of demanding c#nts swarming around me."

Image
"People aren't grateful, Jalib. That's not how doing
the right thing works. We won, though."
Image
"Did we?"

Image
"I'm like them. Like those I fight against. Different side, tha same methods."

"Oh f#ck, Jalib. This is bad. Yer gonna need to lay low fer a bit.
Ah'll help however ah can, but oh gods yer in the shite."
Image
"Niamh... Look at me. Look at me and count.
How many shits I give?"

Image
"None ye daft man. But that's why I gotta give tha shits fer ye.
[She slips her arms around his shoulders]
Ye did weel Jalib. Enough a forgive ye f'r scarin' me shitless
wi ah that talk last tenday."
Image
"Ye keep worrying so much about me. Why?"

Image
"It's whit good people do when thur friends a reckless,
angry mess liable to get hiself kilt, n when
every meetin' could be the last."
Image
"There's no could bees, woman.
I still breath for a reason."

Image
"Things ain't as bad as expected, I say. While banites want me dead, others feel inspired by what I did."

". . . I hope to."
Image
"If I win yer unbanning me."

"You'll get a second chance if you win! But your future
actions will dictate whether you get banned again."
Image
"Deal."

"A damnable establishment ye gotta fight your way to."

"Who are you! Are you the fist?!"

[Whispers loudly]
"Toss them all in the water! And cover your mouth and nose!
The fumes're making him crazy!"

"She wants you to come home. Please come home, Petro."

[Screams]
"My mother is dead! You killed her!"
Image

Image
"DANG IT!!!"
Image
"F#ck!"

Image
"Well, that bugger went to hell, so it was at least an enjoyable setback."


Image

Image
"...What?!"
Image
"That's exactly what ye heard, Terri."

Image
"You thought long and hard on this one."
Image
"I didn't. That's just what I want."

Image
"Nothing else would be acceptable? Nothing?"
Image
"I don't want nothing else."

Image
"I will need to speak to council and, since we are being
honest, I do not believe she will go for it."
Image
"Then I'll continue using it as a kitchen knife."

"Do what ye want with it once I get my keys."

"I know what I'm doing, and if I promised ya
gonna be safe, ye gotta trust me, aye?"

Image
"I -gotta-? Or I do?"
Image
"Then what's tha problem?"

Image
"I'm following you. I'm just pissed at you.
For dragging me into this."
Image
"We're too different. Teleport us out anymoment."

Image
"I am aware I can."
Image
"But yer not doing it, eh?"

Image
"No. Because for some inane and gods awful reason you're
enjoying this. I don't need to understand it."
Image
"Ye don't have to be making sacrifices for me, ye know?"

Image
"...That's what bloody friends are for."
Image
"What kinda friendship is that if one friend makes another suffer?"
It ruins tha whole thing. Now let's get out."

Image
"Yeah. Great. So! I'm not allowed to be unhappy but put
up with it anyway? But that was the whole point?"
Image
"Ye know, this path is tricky... If I offered to marry ya,
would ye agree to just because it probably
gonna make me happier?"

Image
"Only one way to find out."
Image
"...Would ye really consider it?"


Image

Image
[Shouts across the hall]
"I am Saerun! Master of Undeath! Slayer of Curr!
I am the keeper of this tomb!"
Image
[Shouts]
"IT IS QUITE HARD TO SPEAK AT SUCH A DISTANCE!
MAY I STEP FORWARD?"

Image
[Shouts back]
"NO! Don't do that! Or I will disintegrate you!"
Image
[Whispers]
"Time. Prepare."

Image
"Let him handle it. When magical b#tchslaps start flying around — charge."


Image

Image
"I wonder, how come it that men who are being the most rude and beastly
towards women get to have the most attention from them?"
Image
[Laughs]
"Yer lookin' for advice or what, pal?"

Image
"With that kind of things occupying your entire mind, I wonder
how did you find the time to learn how to fight so well."
Image
"Damn, people, we've slain tha whole frost giant boss and nobody died.
Do we need other excuses to raise our glasses?!"


Image

"Tieflings are misfits by nature. We're
distorted, tainted humans."

[Snatches his tail]
"The visible bits are the fun ones."
Image
"Let me leave you two for your games.
I enjoyed your company."

Image
[Playfully tugs on the tail]
"You're really gonna leave me alone here with him?
Who knows what he'll do to poor defenseless me!"
Image
"He'll just leave you heartbroken later, but at least
for the time being I guess you'll have fun."

Image

Image
"Look what we've done, woman."

Image
"All alone, wine, comfy couch, nearby beds...
it's like your dreams have come true."
Image
"Rather my typical day."

Image
"You know how many men have gotten to this point
only to end up alone with the rest of their wine?"
Image
"No. And I ain't sure I care."

Image
"If I say no, you'll go pester another woman?"
Image
"Not before we finish tha wine."

Image
"Cold bastard. Makes a nice change."
Image
"I ain't some virgin wizard, after all."

"I don't like where this conversation goes. As I said, I felt
just as depressive as ya few days ago. And... it's
good ye didn't get my delievery, perhaps."

Image
"What got you bothered though? What was the delivery?"
Image
"A secret."

Image
"Seems a convient way to hide fears."
Image
"Really wanna hear it?"

Image
"Naw. If you think it best not to say. Don't. I trust you."
Image
"...Flowers. Wooden flowers size of
Wenchslapper. Five of them."

Image
"Hah. We are better for eachother without flowers... but...
Would you like a piece of... Isabella advice?"
Image
"Shoot."

Image
"Don't get me wooden flowers. Get me live ones."
Image
"...Noted."

Image
"Think we're makin' it overly complicated."


Image

Image
"Jalib. I wanted to give you something when next we met.
It is not cursed. It is nothing profane."
Image
"...What yer plannin', red?"

Image
"Do you know what a Hilaiyreen is? I took this necklace
off of a Rashemi that attempted to assassinate me.
It didn't end well for him."
Image
[Switches to fluent thayan]
"Speak plainly — the f#ck you want from me right now?"

Image
[Thayan:]
"Quite simply: A peace offering. When the time comes, and the
time will come sooner than later, we may have no choice but to
fight side by side against a superior threat."
[Offers the Hilaiyreen]
Image
[Thayan:]
"I better watch the world burn with reds in the first row."
[Switches back to common and rudely snatches the Hilaiyreen]
I swear, red... If this sh#t is some spying device or means
harm, I gonna hang ya by ye guts."

Image
"Have it divined by Isabella and the Scribes of
Candlekeep itself if you desire."
Image
"...And if it harms her, I gonna resurrect ya
to hang ya by ye guts twice."

Image
"Look at this f#cking mulani. He was -forced- to become a red scum. I gonna cry."


Image

Image
"I actually greatly enjoy the Roaringshore bar! Useful place."
Image
"Eh. Ye said ye can't go there."

Image
"Not right now. Karn."
Image
"Got isses with him?"

Image
"None, but I don't trust him to not suddenly decide to
behead me because he has a bad day."
Image
"Take me with ya. It doesn't matter how big his jaw is."

Image
"Their high captain will kick your #ss."
Image
"Think so?"

Image
"Mhm. Fought him."
Image
"So? Yer not me."

Image
"I know, I am better."
Image
"Bring it on, then. I'll smack ye arse faster than they notice."

Image
"Let's see how much efforts Karn put to whack ye butt."


Image

Image
"I regret to inform you that I cannot agree to those terms. I was
given much advice, one person stating to give you keys then
to change them, I will not be a part of any such farce.
I respect you too much to ever lie to you."
Image
"That's a shame. Would ye at least let me see tha laboratory?"

Image
"Alright, we will allow it, but on the condition
you state why you want to see it."
Image
"Curiosity. Since I won't be able to use it, that's
tha only reason that remains."

Image
[Sighs]
"Let him see it."

Image


Image
"Jalib. I want to thank you for helping me save over fifty fist guards lives.
You will never get the reward you deserve."
Image
"Save what?"

Image
"Didn't you know?"
Image
"What of it? I already forgot 'bout that incident."

Image
"Well, you deserve a reward. Is coin acceptable?"
Image
"Don't be silly, Terri."

Image
"Then you have my graditude."
Image
"Gratitude taken, beauty."

"We are not allies with the Drow. But we will deal with them
how we see fit. Same as the Dukes."
Image
"I don't care, really. You can do whatever you wish. Don't drag
me in bordering legal, illegal deals. I am not to be made an
outlaw because you see fit to bed half the underdark drow
populace to get rid of a puny Necroladie."

Image
"Eyrton. You can leave."
Image
"Those as#holes will hang you for the sake of
it if you don't follow their rules..."

Image
"I don't think you understand, Eyrton. You will leave. Because
we will throw you out of the gate for being an a#s and
implying Candlekeep is allies with darker powers."
Image
"Are YOU Candlekeep? All I speak about is you."

Image
"The laws of Candlekeep state: Any Avowed may remove any
guest at whim. Welcome to my whim. -Out-."
Image
[A tense, cold pause]
"A good eve to you all."

Image


Image
"I have to do that every few months. My apologies."
Image
"Do it more often. Ye were on fire."

Image
"I loved those fangs. Perhaps I am creating a monster by encouraging ya
to show them more often, but... Look at them shine. They're good."


Image

Image
"They're preparing some weird spectacle soon with Terri
playing a dog. Literally. Wanna come with me?"

Image
"Only if you don't mind me falling asleep."
Image
"Not on my shoulder."

Image
"No promises."
Image
"Deal."

Image
"Listen... behind this door..."

Image

Image
"Morning, Jane."

Image
"Morning? It's almost evening. Err... what you
two doing here... up here?"
Image
"Resting, Relaxing and Recouperating."

Image
"Was there? You know..."
[Puts her thumbs together]
Image
"That! Is none of your buisness."

Image
"AH! You know what I meant!"
Image
"And as I said. None of your buisness, little lady."

Image
"Ye know how I live. When I'm in doubts, I'm simply tossing myself
into tha fray and figurin' sh#t out in process."


Image

Image
"He was right. Torture chamber."
Image
"Stormbird is aware of tha whole thing with that.
To make it happen, we only need Cicero. "

Image
"I can tell you... No one has ever been strapped to that thing
unwilling. Doesn't mean it was ever pretty."
Image
"Screw prettiness. I want two things — make
tha sh#t work and remain alive."

Image
"I admit, I am concerned about Cicero
as our metal-worker."
Image
"I can trust him. Even if he fails, it won't
gonna be an intent."

Image
"True. So... question I already know the answer to, Jalib.
But I am asking for my own sanity..."
Image
"Shoot."

Image
"You want to be conscious for this? Or out?"
Image
"I ain't scared of pain."

Image
"Here, we got a shaman, a mage and a techpriest. We got Grimsteel and Shinestone.
Ye'll... have to figure out how to work together. From my part, I promise I won't
scream like a b#tch having molten steel poured down my eyesocket."
