Discoveries

Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "Another one of Nuhmudira's students is in a tower in Arwic's walls."
Town Crier tells you, "Arwic is quite fortified now! Let those Shadows try again and they shall shatter against the stout walls. I hope. Hmm, can Shadows shatter?"
Town Crier tells you, "Every once in a while snowmen drop coal."
Town Crier tells you, "Have you been to the marketplace yet? I wish I could get stationed there - I bet I'd get great tips."
Town Crier tells you, "I guess those collectors have finally wised up. There's no such thing as a free lunch -if you want rat tails you have to pay people for them!"
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard whispers that a new Virindi construct has been found at the very heart of the Singularity Caul. Is it true? And what heinous acts and atrocities are being committed there."
Town Crier tells you, "I've noticed that the creatures all over Dereth seem to be on the move, almost as though they are trying to get back to where they once lived. Wonder if they'll get there?"
Town Crier tells you, "It's true, there are marble and granite keys. At least that is what I've heard."
Town Crier tells you, "Kids these days.. When I was young, there was no way to change your skills around, and if you were a weakling then you were always a weakling! Kids these days have it too easy."
Town Crier tells you, "My cousin told me about a valley north and east of the Obsidian Plains. He said he saw three eyes towering over the edge of some trees before he ran for his very life. Thundering footsteps pounding behind him, he ran into a group of banderlings he had never seen before and found himself at a lifestone."
Town Crier tells you, "My cousin told me about something happening on that Island that the Virindi took over a while back. Why all the interest in the Islands around Dereth recently?"
Town Crier tells you, "My friend Kayna says that her house has been much busier lately. That's odd, too, because she's way out in the desert east of Samsur."
Town Crier tells you, "Nuhmudira is still doing research into Lifestones. Her students in towns are requesting help. There is also one in Arwic but I already helped her before."
Town Crier tells you, "The valley to the northeast of the Obsidian Plains seems to be inhabited by the most vile creatures of their race. I wouldn't travel through there without many of my closest and most able friends around."

Ulgrim Rumors

During the Slumbering Giant event, Ulgrim was found in the Nanto tavern.

You give Ulgrim the Unpleasant Wah Chon's Winter Lager.
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Wah Chon's new brew! It's a bit spicier than what I commonly drink, but it has a wonderful hearty flavor that warms my wintered soul."
Ulgrim tips the stein and drains it in one long draught.
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Gasp! Great Mattekar that's tasty! This inspires me to rhyme!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "A larger lager lather is the taste I'd rather gather"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "when my lesser lager's suds are in the drink."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Then I mull the flavor over with it's hops and malts and clover"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "and again about the pub is what I think.
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Did you ever wonder where the eggs we eat come from? And what about the supposed chicken our cooks make? I don't eat either of them... just in case."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I here the virindi are acting up again. Claude better not get any ideas or I'll be adding another mask to my collection."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Have you seen the new walls around Arwic?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Sure, I bet those walls are great protection against monsters, except the ones that can dig tunnels..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "and the ones that know portal magic... oh and the ones that can just step or fly over the walls."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Yep, they must feel nice and safe behind them walls."

Stout Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "It's time to kick it!"
(Ulgrim Dances)
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That's my new dance!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "My friend Wah Chon in Nanto, has brewed a new lager. I highly recommend it."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I wouldn't live in Arwic. Too many things under the bed."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That white rabbit may look cute an fluffy, but he's an abomination."
(Ulgrim Shakes fist)
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Ooooo, I hate that rabbit!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Still not rolling your own?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Some mage called me a gimp the other day."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I asked him what a gimp was and he said "You, Gimpy! What kindof a gimp mage has a 40 Focus?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So I portaled him to that new valley everyone is talking about to find out what kind of mage he is."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Maybe I should consider getting some of those new attribute transfer gems."
