Town Crier Rumors
- Town Crier tells you, "A cousin of mine, a mage, recently arrived from Ispar. Lucky fellow, he's got a lot more spells than I started out with..."
- Town Crier tells you, "Take cover! It's another roving Virindi death squad!"
- Town Crier tells you, "My cousin the archmage complained that a Virindi said something very rude to him the other day."
- Town Crier tells you, "Have you seen those impressive banners people are carrying around? How stylish!"
- Town Crier tells you, "Have you seen those terrible Virindi floating fortresses?"
- Town Crier tells you, "My cousin the staff warrior is very happy with his new weapon..."
- Town Crier tells you, "New arrivals on Dereth have it easy! Why, when I first got here, we had to run uphill both ways to attack Drudges, with carved sticks, not these fancy new weapons they got!"
- Town Crier tells you, "News! Some intrepid warriors have managed to defeat Tumerok forces and taken their banners! The Tumeroks apparently use these banners to organize their forces..."
- Town Crier tells you, "News! The Virindi and their Tumerok allies have pushed into Osteth and established camps near our capital cities!"
- Town Crier tells you, "News! Virindi have been portaling their minions all over Osteth to strike at the human population! No one knows where the next one will strike..."
- Town Crier tells you, "News! The quality of weapons that new arrivals from Ispar bring with them seems to have improved... Lucky them."
- Town Crier tells you, "News! Newly-arrived mages in Dereth have a more comprehensive memory of spells than their antecedents..."
- Town Crier tells you, "News! Some new arrivals in Dereth seem to be arriving with different sets of skills... Can this reflect some kind of broad change on Ispar?"
- Town Crier tells you, "News! Scholars theorize that the Virindi and Tumerok invasion of Osteth seems to be directed from those oddly menacing towers that have appeared overland..."
- Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So much for speeds beyond the ken of mortal man, eh?"
- Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Okay, so it's not stout that repels Virindi death squads. It's actually this old robe of mine, which I haven't changed in months!"
- Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I saw someone carrying a Quiddity weapon recently, dressed in purple chain mail... He didn't look quite right. Had Virindi stink on him, you know? Anyway, he looked right at me, gave me a little nod, and then murdered some poor fool shopping at the armorsmith's. I wonder what was going on with that?"
- Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Has that darned white rabbit come through again? Oh, he's my archnemesis, he is... I've got a surprise for him, though. Soon he'll be at my feet... Or on my feet... I'm not making much sense, am I?"
