Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "Ahh! Just this morning on my way to work, I was attacked by a Platinum Golem! After he hit me with a bit of the old "Tusker's Gift" nonsense, I cast a Life Magic dispel to remove the offending enchantment and was quickly on my way!"
Town Crier tells you, "Apparently Fadsahil al-Tashbi has stated several times, in Council meetings, that there is a fell voice that has been screaming beneath his home. What could that be?"
Town Crier tells you, "An Aun Tumerok claiming to be sent from High Queen Elysa has arrived in Arwic. He's beating a drum at the highest tower."
Town Crier tells you, "Attention! The Lugian Renegades are continuing their assault upon Linvak Tukal in even greater strength than before. All those who wish to assist our Lugian allies should report to Arutis, the Lugian Emissary in the city of Linvak Tukal!"
Town Crier tells you, "Aun Laokhe has traveled to Arwic on a special mission. Apparently he can speak to the spirits of nature that speak truly arcane languages."
Town Crier tells you, "Chiran, Lorica and Nariyid. Those are the new types of armor that the armorsmiths were working on, a pity that they were robbed."
Town Crier tells you, "Fadsahil al-Tashbi seems to have moved out of his old abode. He's not that far from there in a nice tent. Perhaps you should speak with him."
Town Crier tells you, "Have you seen what the armorsmiths of the land have been busy making? Neither have I, continued raids from creatures have seen their wares whisked away in the night."
Town Crier tells you, "I'm not saying it's true, but rumors that have come to me say that Nuhmudira was recently killed by Oswald."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard tell that Lord Kresovus bid the Archmage Kifandal to open a portal to Linvak Tukal at the base of their citadel as a welcoming gesture to his allies."
Town Crier tells you, "I've noticed that some of the magical processes involving spell-casting have been accelerated. Is it possible that sinister means dwell beneath this newfound power?"
Town Crier tells you, "It's good to see new life in Dereth. I've seen too much death for too long."
Town Crier tells you, "Looks like the rabbits aren't the only animals that have been busy this spring."
Town Crier tells you, "My contacts told me that old Ulkas in Linvak Tukal has become a master of his craft -- and his creations are even more powerful than before."
Town Crier tells you, "Those creepy little creatures... I cannot believe that the High Queen wants to find out more about them. I say, kill them first and find out what they want when they surrender!"
Town Crier tells you, "What are those things? They seem to have set up an encampment around that strange temple in the Blackmire Swamp."

Ulgrim Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Hey, welcome to Ayan Baqur! Buy me a drink friend?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "It's really good to be back in Ayan Baqur. It hasn't changed all that much. The big difference is I see more crazy fools running around killing each other than I used to. How can they stand all the Vitae?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "People were surprised that I changed my portal recall spell. Hey, I warned people it would change. It's my spell and I go where I like. Plus, I don't really trust Lifestone Recall anymore..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "If you want to get to my island then talk to the Drunken Madman, he knows the way."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Easy guys, I drink my stout just like the rest of you - one sip at a time. Except, once my mug's empty, I make gold gromnies."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Fill me up a Beer Stein and I'll tell you the story of how I tied to a broken lifestone."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I had a bad dream the other night. I was in the ruins of some town and I couldn't get anyone to talk to me or give me stout."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That wasn't the worst part of the dream though. There were these horrible wormy things floating around and I was terrified they would see me."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I hear old Jaleh got killed. Aaminah really looks as if she's broken up over it. I think we should elect a new leader for Ayan Baqur."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Now let's see... who would make a good leader?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "No, I couldn't!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Could I?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I'll do it! I will shoulder the heavy burden of leadership."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "First law I pass? Free drinks for the Mayor!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I visited Claude and Leopold the yesterday."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Same old virindi. Still think that we can't tell they aren't human."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I asked them to go cliff diving with me tomorrow. Hehe."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I told them it was a traditional human activity."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I'll just make sure they jump first."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I thought Mosswarts smelled bad, but Burun smell like Tremendous Monouga feet. At least you know when they're close."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "If we build a new town I say we call it Ulgrim's Ridge. Now that's a town name with style!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I've been working on some Olthoi Bait in case they decide to come back. Through long and arduous testing I've discovered that they can't resist stuffed mushrooms. Just walk through a dungeon dropping those things in a line and you can ambush a whole swarm while they're gobbling them up."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Now I have the power of ten Uglrims!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "From hence forth I will be know as Captain Stout! An amazing hero devoted to truth, justice and the pursuit of free drinks."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Wherever there are those in need of help, I'll be there!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Wherever there is a wrong to be righted, I'll be there!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Wherever a stout is left standing unwatched, I will be there!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Have you noticed how dazed the people at fishing holes look?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Just try talking to one of them. You'll be lucky if they even acknowledge you. More than likely they'll just stand there casting and casting and casting."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "They're Fishing Zombies! Fishing Zombies I tells you!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I went to visit the fortune shrine today. Want to hear my fortune?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You will fall into a very deep hole and your broken body will slowly be devoured by the foul things that reside in the lightless places."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That didn't sound so good."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "My lucky numbers are 6,6,6."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I hear if you lick a Burun you can see all sorts of cool stuff."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So, did you see the Archmage in Candeth Keep? I hear her husband is out of the picture. She can buff me anytime! Hubba! Hubba!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You the man!"
You say, "No, You the man!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You're right, I am."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "There aren't a lot of stimulating people to talk to around here."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I don't mean you of course, you're fascinating."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant says, "Good to be back in AB."
