Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "Part of me wishes to say that Kurth got what he deserved, but..."
Town Crier tells you, "There's a memorial to Antius near Yanshi. I'm planning to go visit and pay my respects, as soon as I'm off duty."
Town Crier tells you, "I hear there is a recall on those faulty Glenden Wood Recall Orbs. People are tired of portaling into Glenden Wood and finding all their muscles in a painful state of rigor. You can turn the orb in for a spell scroll with Tomo Genza."
Town Crier tells you, "You know, I think I've been pursuing the wrong career all this time. I think I'll learn how to swing a sword properly and take the fight to Varicci myself!"
Town Crier tells you, "I hear tell there's some kind of ghost haunting a ruined temple in the northeast, near the coast..."
Town Crier tells you, "The brave citizens of Yanshi have rebuilt their town! It's quite impressive."
Town Crier tells you, "I love this time of year. Everything looks so white and pretty..."
Town Crier tells you, "All right, I'm sick of the cold now. How long until it gets warm again?"
Town Crier tells you, "I have to weep whenever I think about poor, brave Antius. No, I won't weep. I can be strong for the Queen."
Town Crier tells you, "Viamontians are still at Glenden Wood! What more could they want?"
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard that people are finding it much easier to pick up new skills, within reason. That's good. A mind that stops learning is a mind that's started dying, I always say."
Town Crier tells you, "There's a running rumor that claims Ulgrim has a secret hatch on one of his islands. There is no truth to this rumor, it's a dirty lie perpetrated by Ulgrim himself. Don't listen to that man, he spins falsehoods and untruths wherever he ends up deciding to drink for the month."
Town Crier tells you, "I don't get it. Elysa sent a Royal Guard to Yanshi, but she couldn't help out Kurth, and now Kurth is... Well, let us not ever speak of that man again."
Town Crier tells you, "Glenden Wood is still standing even after the attack. I hear that an archer has been organizing a counter-attack against the Viamontians, too."
Town Crier tells you, "I don't even have to look at the snow to know that winter is here. These days, when I leave my cottage, I get attacked by Snowmen instead of Scarecrows. Ah, the turn of the seasons..."
Town Crier tells you, "Glenden Wood is still standing even after the attack. I hear that an archer has been organizing a counter-attack against the Viamontians, too."
Town Crier tells you, "I urge you to go to Yanshi and pay your respects at the memorial to Antius. He was a good man. Is that what the Viamontians have been after? A way to well and truly kill someone? It was bad enough thinking Nuhmudira and Oswald had that power, but now this mad bull King..."
Town Crier tells you, "I've heard that people are finding it much easier to pick up new skills, within reason. That's good. A mind that stops learning is a mind that's started dying, I always say."
Town Crier tells you, "I don't even have to look at the snow to know that winter is here. These days, when I leave my cottage, I get attacked by Snowmen instead of Scarecrows. Ah, the turn of the seasons..."
Town Crier tells you, "So there's this ghost at a ruined temple up north. I hear tell the temple is inhabited by Shadows! It's been a long time since Shadows really made a ruckus. I hope the appearance of this temple isn't some kind of dire sign..."
Town Crier tells you, "The citizens of Yanshi have rebuilt their town, stronger than ever, but there's still trouble brewing down there... That's why Elysa stationed a Royal Guard in town."

Ulgrim Rumors

Free Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Poor Elysa, it's like she's cursed. Every man she gets close to dies horribly. I wonder if Asheron has anything to do with it... That's why I had to send back that box of chocolates she sent me a while ago. I'm no fool! Besides, romancng a Queen would surely interrupt my drinking time."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That was a hint, youngster. Get me some stout, or I'll fix her up with you next."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I knew Kurth was going to go on over to the other side. The man was loyal as a dog, but a starved dog will turn feral eventually. I guess Elysa never had any pets."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Ghosts and shadows cavorting on the northeast coast? I'll believe it when I see it. Of course, I'm not planning to get up there any time soon."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Yeah, I think I'll change my occupation. Wait, what do you mean there's no Tessera for Competitive Drinking?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Yanshi's been rebuilt, eh? Nice high walls? That's all fine and good, but... How is the tavern?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Boy oh boy, another winter. I'm not looking forward to this one. I'm not sure I can afford to heat my mansion, what with the price of firewood going through the roof. I may have to give up stout, or turn to a life of crime..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Hrm. Definitely a life of crime."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "A moment of silence for a brave and noble man. We will not forget you, Antius."

Stout Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I see Nuhmudira's hand in some recent events. That woman! Imagine if I'd married her like she asked me to. I'd probably have drunk myself to death by now."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So it's true. Real death has returned to Dereth. All right, I'm being overdramatic. Varicci's not the first to discover that terrible power, but he's certainly the most... uncouth."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So, have you heard the story about that ghost at the ruined temple, way up on the northeast coast? Gives me the creeps. It reminds me of my brothers, back on Ispar... No, wait, I hated those guys. There were always filching my stout. I'm glad they're not here!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. That, and weapons that can sever your lifestone connection. That's something to fear, too."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Kurth willingly gave his allegiance to Varicci, but there's no way he willingly got changed into one of those monstrous things. Just goes to show what happens when you cooperate with a tyrant. Keep that in mind, friend."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. That, and weapons that can sever your lifestone connection. That's something to fear, too."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I've seen it all in my time on this weird, wacky world. Nothing surprises me any more. Not even foul, stinking betrayal. But don't listen to me. No one ever does."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Winter has come! You know, it always catches me by surprise when it comes around again."
