Town Crier Rumors
- Town Crier tells you, "I hear that the people in Wai Jhou have been busy with some new project."
- Town Crier tells you, "I love the roadway from Arwic to Glenden Wood, the Obsidian Span, the run along the river and the gorgeous valleys, remind me of Ispar."
- Town Crier tells you, "Who would have ever thought that Jaleh was married?"
- Town Crier tells you, "The High Queen is concerned about what she heard from Knorr regarding the Olthoi."
- Town Crier tells you, "Ahurenga Tumeroks recently ran a crazy Tumerok out of town. I think he lured an olthoi into town."
- Town Crier tells you, "Wai Jhou towns folk claim to have learned humility or something."
- Town Crier tells you, "What happened to those Virindi? Did you see them? I've never been so scared!"
- Town Crier tells you, "You know that old igloo, way up north, used to hold a mysterious shivering stone? You don't want to go there now. Trust me on this one."
- Town Crier tells you, "Sorry -- no time to talk! I'm getting ready for a party at my monarch's villa!"
- Town Crier tells you, "I heard the Black Death Catacombs have become much more dangerous."
- Town Crier tells you, "You know--It's possible that Jaleh was mixed up with the wrong element. He did just appear as a town owner a couple years back. Of course there was the fact that he is on Elysa's council. I wonder what she thinks about this."
- Town Crier tells you, "What's red and blue and green and black and gold and white and… Oh just go visit the Obsidian Plains."
- Town Crier tells you, "The Olthoi Horde Nests are among the lairs the High Queen would like investigated."
- Town Crier tells you, "With the seasons come greater changes. I've never seen so many different types of Drudges
- Town Crier tells you, "I donated a bunch of metal salvage to the collectors in Wai Jhou. Let's take back Dereth! Well, I guess we never had it to begin with, but... you know.
- Town Crier tells you, "Did you hear about the crazy Tumerok who rides olthoi? I think he should start a road show where he does various olthoi riding tricks."
- Town Crier tells you, "Wai Jhou vendors are selling high and buying low now. I got some really good deals there. They say they don't want pyreal to distract them from the path."
- Town Crier tells you, "Apparently Jaleh had some meetings during the day that his wife knew about, but he never came home that night? I wonder what happened."
- Town Crier tells you, "I hear that Ciandra took on an apprentice. Nice looking girl. I wonder if she gets lonely out there in Xarabydun? Maybe I'll stop by on my day off."
- Town Crier tells you, "Oh just like everyone else, my advice is only good enough for a single pyreal! Well thank you, Mr. Pyrealbags this'll go a long way toward providing for my family. I'm sure that an egg will feed me, my three kids and my wife."
- Town Crier tells you, "Oh you just don't know..."
