Dragonstar - Dialogue

Post by Yeti » Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:53 am

Feel free to use this thread to contribute characters and dialogue for Dragonstar. To get us started, I'll post some dialogue I've been slowly working on:

Redguard Greetings

Player is a Redguard

Welcome to Dragonstar, my Redguard brother. Tava watch over us. What brings you to our northern Tomba?

Welcome to Dragonstar, my Redguard sister. Tava watch over us. What brings you to our northern Tomba?

Greetings to you, Ra Gada. Do you seek someone in particular in Dragonstar? A specific place? Ask and I will answer.

You have come to Dragonstar, a Crown city in these northern lands. How might I help a fellow Ra Gada?

Redguard – high disposition – first greeting

You have come to Dragonstar, traveler, a Crown city in these northern lands. How might I help?

For a foreigner, you don’t look so bad. Need help finding your way around Dragonstar? Ask and I will answer.

Redguard – high disposition

Tava watch over us, friend. Has Dragonstar been treating you well?

We meet again, friend from foreign lands. Have you found your way in Dragonstar?

Redguard – low disposition – first greeting

Yes, nudriman? What do you want? You shouldn’t wander around Dragonstar, heedless of danger.

Why do you walk Dragonstar’s streets, foreigner? Do you seek someone in particular? A specific place? Speak quickly.

Redguard – low disposition

We meet again, nudriman. If you need services, go bother a nudri peddler.

Why do you still walk Dragonstar’s streets, nudriman? Speak quickly.


Dragonstar West - Normal Greetings

High disposition – first greeting

You have come to Dragonstar, traveler, a city on the border with Skyrim. How might I help?

You’re in Dragonstar, %PCClass. Dragonstar West, ruled by the Crowns of Hammerfell. Are you looking for someone in particular or a specific place?

High disposition

We meet again, %PCClass. Have you found what you need in Dragonstar?

Hello again, %PCRace. If you’re still looking for services in Dragonstar West, try the bazaar.

Low disposition – first greeting

You’re in Dragonstar West, stranger. You shouldn’t wander the streets aimlessly. The Crowns might think you’re up to something.

What are you doing in Dragonstar, %PCClass? The Crowns don’t like strangers in their city.

Low disposition

Yes, we’ve spoken before, %PCName. Why are you still wandering the streets?

What are you still doing in Dragonstar, %PCRace? The Crowns are going to start watching you.


Dragonstar East - Normal Greetings

High disposition – first greeting

You have come to Dragonstar, traveler, a city on the border with Hammerfell. How might I help?

You’re in Dragonstar, %PCClass. Dragonstar East, ruled by Jarl Jona the Ansei-Ender. Are you looking for someone in particular or a specific place?

High disposition

We meet again, %PCClass. Have you found what you need in Dragonstar?

Hello again, %PCRace. I hope Jarl’s guards haven’t been giving you trouble.

Low disposition – first greeting

You’re in Dragonstar, stranger. Be careful what you do. The Jarl’s guards are watching.

You shouldn’t wander Dragonstar’s streets, stranger. People will think you’re up to something.

Low disposition

What is it now, %PCName? Can’t you find your own way around Dragonstar East?

Yes, %PCName? What do you still want in Dragonstar?


Dragonstar West - Topics

Sogat Dur-Gada – Redguards

You talk of the eastern resistance, %PCRace. They are patriots, fighting to defend our homeland. Like the HoonDing, they guard the Yoku against the foreigners and infidels. May their swords land heavy blows!

Little secret
Be careful around the devotees of Satakal, the Serpent God. They are madmen, roaming the streets naked, rolling in the dirt. But they are also holy and pious. Pay them respect -- and pray you never see them “shed” their skin.


Unique Dialogue


Border guards

Greetings

You’ll find no passage here, %PCRace. This is the Tro-Tuktura border post. The road to Hammerfell is blocked to aimless drifters like you.

[goodbye]

Turn back, %PCRace. Your drifting ends at the gates of Tro-Tuktura. Only lawful traders, Imperial officials, and the friends and kin of the Crowns may pass.

[goodbye]


Eranthos

Greeting

Yes, %PCClass? Are you here for training or to buy spells? You wouldn’t come to the Guild of Mages without a reason.

Background

I am %Name, a Mage, spell merchant, and Guildmagister of the Dragonstar Mages Guild. I have been with the guild a long time.

Dragonstar

Not many people come to me for training. Redguards in these parts don’t like magic much. Most are too ignorant and superstitious to see its value. A pity.


Jarl Jona the Ansei-Ender

Fighters Guild

Those scum? I had them banished from my city ages ago. The fools fought against us in the battle for Dragonstar. I would’ve killed them all if they hadn’t fled the city afterwards. Cowards!


[Shadowkey Tavern Thieves Guild Leader]

Greeting

Good day, %PCRank. Pull up a stool and order a drink. If you’re after a job, I might have one or two to offer.

Yeah? Who are you? You aren’t in the guild. That much I know. Can’t a %Race enjoy a tankard of ale without being bothered? Go away. Or do you want to join the Thieves Guild?

Background

The name’s ___, %Class and %Rank in the Thieves Guild. I’m the boss in Dragonstar. No one picks a lock or mugs a merchant in this town without me letting them.

People call me ___. Why do you want to know? Are you working with the guards? Tell them to go sniff a wormmouth’s arse. I’m not talking.

Dragonstar

Well, the place has seen better days, what with all the damn guards marching around. That’s why I like to keep to the Shadowkey Tavern. Good drink and a warm fire helps you forget the Reach’s troubles.

[Mara’s House – Nord Priestess]

Greeting

Welcome, friend, to the House of Mara. May the Divine Mother bless you with compassion and virility in these harsh times. I regret needing to ask, but would you be able to aid Mara's work?

Background

I am a priestess of Mara, the mother goddess. I oversee this house of worship, giving shelter to the poor and weary.

Mara's work

My work here is sponsored by the Imperial Cult, along with other benefactors. Mara's compassion is universal - recognized in both the Nord and Imperial pantheons. But there is never enough gold for everyone in need. Would you be willing to help me collect donations from the city's citizens? You would earn the Goddess's gratitude.


[Mara’s House – Imperial pauper]

Greeting

Who are you? Another drifter looking for home? Doesn’t matter where you go. You can’t escape your troubles. Not even in Mara’s House.

Background

I was here. All those years ago. During the war. Lost my sister in the Second Battle of Dragonstar. Or was it the third battle? Doesn’t matter, I suppose.

Dragonstar

I can still see it all. At night. When the dreams come. People cut down by sword and ax in the streets. The smoldering smell of fire drifting over the city. Why can’t I forget? Why?

Mara’s House

A good place. ___ takes care of us. Makes sure we have a warm place to sleep. It won’t make me forget what I’ve seen, but it helps.


[Mara’s House – Nord Woman]

Greeting

Want to hear a war story? Then get lost. I’m no braggart. My background ain’t anything to be proud of.

Background

My name’s Hjori. I’m a warrior. Or I used to be, at least. I fought in the war. In Dragonstar. Helped Jarl Jona the Ansei-Ender capture half the city. And what did it get me? Nothing. I’m poor as dirt. Not a bit of dignity or honor left.

Dragonstar

When I think of all the blood we spilled over this dirty city -- it makes me angry.

Mara’s House

Maybe I don’t deserve to live here after all I’ve done, but it’s good to have a place to call home.

Jarl Jona the Ansei-Ender

Glory hogging bitch. Long may she reign and all that nonsense. Wish they’d made me a Jarl for fighting in the war.


Rekir

Greeting

If you’re looking for the arena, you’ve found it, pal. I’m Rekir, the pit boss. You look like you can put up a fight. Want to take on Orgak gro-Ulagash? I’ll tell you the rules first.

Background

You want my name? Rekir. Thought I told ya that already. Most call me the arena pit boss, like my pa was in his day.

Dragonstar

The arena here ain’t what it used to be. These days, the Jarl’s guards treat the place like their personal training ground, the way they come stomping in all the time. And with the Fighters Guild gone, there ain’t as many willing competitors around. But we still put on fights with gladiators and beasts. Course, the rules are a bit different than when my pa was the pit boss.

Fighters Guild

You won’t find the Fighters Guild in Dragonstar, pal. The Jarl had them chased out of the city after they sided with Hammerfell in the war. If you’re looking for a fight, the arena’s the only place in town.

My pa

His name was Tekin. He’s been dead years now, but maybe you’ve heard of him? He ran the arena before me. Had me here cleaning up blood since I was little. Great place for a lad to grow up.

The rules

It used to be that you’d fight to the death and there were no rules. That was back during the war, when my pa was in charge. But now we’d run out of fighters if we had them hacking each to pieces all the time. Now we try to only kill beasts and criminals. Those fights are always popular with the fans.

take on Orgak gro-Ulagash

You interested? He’s the big Orc over there with the bad temper. He’s maimed and killed a number of my fighters, and I can’t afford to lose more. Want to try fighting him? In a death match? You’d get a hefty prize for getting rid of him for me.

Important NPC's [WIP]

Dragonstar East

Jarla Jona the Ansei-Ender, Female Nord Noble
Jarl of Dragonstar and Karthwasten, vassal of the Kingdom of the Reach. A hero from the War of Bend'r Mahk, the war never really stopped for Jona. She is (perhaps rightfully) paranoid, bitter, draconic, hotheaded and completly unpredictable. She has a huge and loyal hird of soldiers, rivalling the force of King Barda. She is hell-bent on rooting out dissent and insurgents in her lands, and she dreams of conquering the rest of Dragonstar, which she feels was robbed from her by the Imperial intervention. There are people working behind the scenes to make her King Barda's successor, instead of his two sons.

Balimor, Male Bosmer Bard
Undercover Blades Agent spying on the court of Jarla Jona.

Secucius Ceria, Male Imperial Pawnbroker
Undercover Blades Agent

Malrec, Male Breton Bookseller
Young bookworm with an unhealthy interest in occultism, daedrology and shadow magic.

Tanyin, Female Redguard Knight
Retired knight loyal to Skyrim. From Shadowkey. Constantly on the death list of Redguard insurgents.

Dalach, Male Reachman Thief
Local ruthless gangleader, rival of the TG

Friga Dragon-Singer, Female Nord Bard
Sings lullabies to Alduin

Dragonstar West

Prince Alak'tol, Male Redguard Noble
Smuggled out of besieged Karthwasten as an infant, the prince has grown up in exile from most of his 'rightful' lands.

Vemad, Male Redguard Knight
Knightly order relocated to Dragonstar.

Eranthos, Male Breton Mage
MG Guildmaster

Leader of the Cult of Diagna.

Excellent list, roerich. I just want to point out that Eranthos is supposed to be female. Based on her name, I'd say she's probably either a Bosmer or Altmer.

Good catch, I've made her an Altmer instead, since they have the longest livespans.
