Discoveries

Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "I read a rumor of an explorer who lives west of Lytelthorpe and has been speaking of a very odd place he discovered. Funny, my cousin is an explorer for the Exploration Society and he says he has never heard of him..."
Town Crier tells you, "Hey! If you know people who have a cottage or villa, ask them whether the Arcanum built more houses in their settlement. I hear that is so. There is safety in numbers!"
Town Crier tells you, "Have you heard? The essences have erupted from the very bowels of the world! Destruction everywhere, I've heard said."
Town Crier tells you, "I understand the famous cartographer Alatar Locke has been spotted. He has been busy making maps of Dereth. I saw one hanging on the wall of my brother's place. I had no idea Dereth is so big!"
Town Crier tells you, "Have you been to that place near the ocean's edge southeast of Aerlinthe? I have no idea what that thing in the water is but I don't like the looks of it."
Town Crier tells you, "Some of the existing cottage and villa settlements are growing! They seem to be in many locations- the desert, the plains, lots of places."
Town Crier tells you, "I have heard that the High Queen may soon call the people to her so that she can explain to us what danger we now face. I would sure like to be there to see her."
Town Crier tells you, "News, the Exploration Society has lost contact with the researcher they sent to study the Grievvers afflicting Stonehold. Vivaina, the Stonehold Shopkeep, says he left Stonehold two weeks ago, following tracks into the Northwest Woods."
Town Crier tells you, "I cannot tell you how relieved I am that those dreadful statues have finally been nullified - even their pedestals have been nullified. But there are still statues lurking in the foundries beneath them - we'd better keep watch over them, just to make sure they never invade us again."
Town Crier tells you, "The Scriveners' Guild has set up shop in many towns throughout the world! Visit your local scrivener to purchase scrolls and casting foci!"
Town Crier tells you, "A Sharpshooter has reported spotting the missing Exploration Society Researcher, Verdentine Magnan. The archer says that Magnan was busy talking to himself on a hill overlooking a valley heavily infested with Grievvers in the Northwest Woods at 75.5N, 20.6W."
Town Crier tells you, "I bought a rumor about someone named Slithe Tradittor who saw an ancient artifact and... well, you go buy it yourself!"
Town Crier tells you, "High Queen Elysa Strathelar is planning on calling people to the Festival Stones according to rumors spreading throughout the Arcanum. Some people have even said that Asheron will be there. Well I just hope Martine knows well enough to stay away."
Town Crier tells you, "That thing rising from the ocean? It looks like something that those Empyrean would have used. Maybe Nuhmudira was right after all."
Town Crier tells you, "Hear ye, hear ye! Novice mages will no longer have to perform research in order to learn their new spells! Scrolls are being sold across the land in the Scrivener's Vaults!"
Town Crier tells you, "My new casting foci are so handy! Can you imagine it? I only need this foci, a couple scarabs and one of those newfangled prismatic tapers and I'm all set for a hunt!"
Town Crier tells you, "I bought a rumor about someone named Slithe Tradittor who saw an ancient artifact and... well, you go buy it yourself!"

Ulgrim Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oh? Pretty new house trinket? Ive seen those Arcane Pedestals before."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Seems pretty irresponsible to be tinkering with ancient Empyrean devices. Doesnt anyone remember the Great Work? Hello?! We released the Hopeslayer doing just this sort of thing."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Bah! Do whatever you want, but dont forget I told you so."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The Queen made a visit here the other day. She gave me some water and I accidentally spit it out on her boots..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Hey! I thought she was giving me some stout. That water stuff is horrible! It was an honest mistake."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Anyway, Ash was there too and he understood, he even snickered. Were friends from way back."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Turns out they just wanted some advice on which spirits to have at some party theyre going to throw. They came to the right man for that. I gave them a list I had already made out of all my favorites."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Did you here about that Grievver Man in the North Osteth Woods?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Living in the wilds with a bunch of bugs? Hes one pyreal short of an M-Note if you know what I mean."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I showed Martine my portal joke. He didnt find it very funny though. When I got to the part where his wife says "Hi" ...he kind of lost it, I thought he was going to ring spell me or something."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "He said something about losing my lifestone tie."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Heh, what a kidder. He cant do that... can he?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Some people just cant take a joke."
