Town Crier Rumors

Town Crier tells you, "Ah, I'm feeling much fresher now. Don't you feel better, too?"
Town Crier tells you, "I resisted a spell that a Crystal cast at me the other day. My mind is still reeling."
Town Crier tells you, "Have you hunted any Niffis lately? They drop very pretty pieces of shell now..."
Town Crier tells you, "Did you hear about those two explorers from a distant, unknown land who've gotten lost? They keep losing their towels, so I hear."
Town Crier tells you, "News! Mages all over Dereth report that their enhancement spells last longer! Hooray!"
Town Crier tells you, "News! Monarchs all across Dereth have become better at addressing large groups! I suppose those "Public Speaking Mastery" classes paid off."
Town Crier tells you, "Maybe my cousin the big fancy monarch will appoint me his Speaker! It's what I do all day, after all."
Town Crier tells you, "My cousin the archmage says he's "reached the next level" on his spell research. What is that supposed to mean?"
Town Crier tells you, "My cousin the archmage spends a lot less time shopping now, and a lot more time working off spells that monsters cast on him! No, wait, he spends less time doing that, too. What does he do all day?!?"
Town Crier tells you, "Everyone should go to Monty's Den of Iniquity and take a turn at spinning the wheel! Yes, Monty paid me to say that. I feel so ashamed."
Town Crier tells you, "News! The seasons have turned into summer, and that poacher in the Bandit Castle has released her new report on seasonal creature adaptations."
Town Crier tells you, "News! Fletchers, alchemists and cooks are now able to get hats from the Bestowers' Guild to go along with their new titles!"
Town Crier tells you, "News! A merchants' consortium has come together to regulate buy and sell rates across Dereth! They claim that this standardized system contributes to greater efficiency and maximizes the profits of all merchants. I bet their customers aren't too happy, though..."
Town Crier tells you, "News! The Virindi are spreading further into Osteth! There are reports of a Virindi fortress on the south land bridge, and of their minions, Black Drudges, heading into the south mountains! Oh, what can this mean?"

Ulgrim Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Arrr, it's good to be back here. That Virindi dungeon smelled bad. For such a light and airy bunch of people, they sure are smelly!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Ha, those Virindi thought they could keep me down... Not old Ulgrim, my friend, I'm too wily for them! I was prepared for their mind tricks!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "In all seriousness though, Lacandrillar and Adirred were some of the scariest folks I've ever met. Incomprehensible most of the time, but very scary."

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "What's all this bad noise I hear washing up from way down in the southwest? Durned nuisances, those Virindi."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That F.P., he's a groovy frood."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Yep yep, I finally did it, cleared them Virindi away from my town with the force of my mind. Yep, my town."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I passed Bael'Zharon's test, just like Blackthorn and Vidorian did. He bought me a nice cold beer afterward. We didn't bother with any of that "Dark Monarch" claptrap."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Imagine the lip on those folks from the Guild of Bestowers. I could grant titles too, but I'd only grant titles to people who could outdrink me. Fat chance of that."
