Town Crier Rumors

The town crier's demeanor become dark and sinister.
Town Crier tells you, "Dread be hidden in the pockets of the shadow worshippers. They are displaced from their homes and seek dark powers from graven idols. You are warned!"
Town Crier tells you, "Woo! That was strange. Have a nice day."
Town Crier tells you, "A terrible tragedy has befallen Bachus Flufens! A Hea raiding party invaded her farm and forced her to take refuge in Redspire - if you find her there she will tell you all about it."
Town Crier tells you, "A passing traveler told me that the Hea Raiders up on the Marescent Plateau are carrying even more powerful weapons."
Town Crier tells you, "Aun Ngationa up in Timaru has been studying the modifications the Hea Raiders have made to their weapons. If you have one of the older ones in your possession, he can probably make the changes for you."
Town Crier tells you, "Behdo Yii needs our help with the Olthoi on Marae Lassel! More Olthoi nests have opened on the Marescent Plateau!"
Town Crier tells you, "I heard that the butterflies have migrated over on Marae Lassel. Aun Papileona has moved his shrine to be closer to them."
Town Crier tells you, "I'm not sure how, but there is an oasis out near Fadsahil's old shop"
Town Crier tells you, "Marae Lassel has always been home to a great many strange beasts. It seems like everything there has moved though."
Town Crier tells you, "My brother was on the Singularity Caul when he heard the most nerve wracking scream! I do not know if he will recover from the shock of it."
Town Crier tells you, "Renegade activity has increased since the discovery of their fort. Gabrielle, a Royal Guard, has moved to Rithwic to give us reports on the High Queen's findings."
Town Crier tells you, "Reports from the Singularity Caul are coming in! Adventurers are saying they are finding strange red portals across the entire island!"
Town Crier tells you, "They say that Asheron went back home. I can't wait to see what he does, now that he's in control of the place."
Town Crier tells you, "We, the rest of the town criers and I, think that it might be time to give up robes. Now that we can enhance all our armor at once we figure it might be time for better protection."

Ulgrim Rumors

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Are you naive enough to think Elysa runs Dereth? Hmm."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "There is a conspiracy that those in power don't want you to know. I can't tell you everything, not yet. I can tell you there is a cabal of mages in the upper echelons of our government who control every aspect of our society. Do you think that the Olthoi Invasion happened by chance?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Just ask yourself, who is the fourth man?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You think Marae Lassel is so great huh? Here's one important question you have to ask yourself: Does it have Ulgrim on it? That should tell you all you need to know."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Someone's been staying at my house. I noticed my porridge was eaten and my bed was all mussed up. If I catch him he'll be sorry."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Guess what I'm doing tomorrow night."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The same thing I do every night."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I wish I could fly. You think with all this magic in the world we would have magical flight."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I want to fly!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I need a cape too."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "This little mosswart fellow came into town screaming about the Burun."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I gave him a drink to calm him down. He gave me a stone that smells like something plucked from a mattekar's hind quarters. I figure I'll throw it at the next Burun I see."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You know, Muldaveus and Niarltah asked me to join their Renegade cause. I was going to join too..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Then they told me that they didn't supply the Breakfast Beer, Morning Mickeys, Spring-to-Action Ale, Midday Mead, Late-Night Lager or Sleepy-Time Stout. So I told them that they could take their Mattekar Swill and stuff it. My allegiance to Elysa could never be bought!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Wish I could take my sword with me. I'd at the very least like to have it on my wall at home."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You know you're a real hero if you can fight naked."
