Ulgrim Rumors

Pre-invasion Ulgrim

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Have you ever seen a group of Shadow Children playing tag? I like to fire off an Infernae spell at the middle of them and hear the screams."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I'd go into the Mines of Despair, but I think I'll have a little more stout first..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I went poking around in Claude's tent the other day, that creepy bugger Leopold, you know what he said to me? He said, "You have no chance to survive, make your time." What's that supposed to mean?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The sun out here must be baking my brain. I think maybe I'll move somewhere shadier soon."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I got some new boots. Scaly, yet comfortable. But don't call them fish boots!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Seen them black-cloaked Executors drifting around? No good can come of this, I say."

Panopticon Ulgrim

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Right, then. What'd I tell you? No one believed me... Now, do you see? I was right all along! Applesauce, I said!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "The Observer in town's actually a reasonable guy. Or entity. Whatever they call themselves."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You talked to the other guys around here? They seen, I don't know, a little dull lately."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "There's a Director somewhere around here who's the cause of all this mess."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I tried talking to that Director around here. Names himself Adirrred. He makes no sense, talking about "privileged self" and posts and structures."

Virindi Ulgrim:

Ulgrim tells you, "I find that I have acquired a taste for the wine sold by the Barkeep. Would you bring me a glass? Good human."
Ulgrim tells you, "Just between you, me, and the bottle, human, the theft of the Fragment of Singularity has made some beings angry."
You give Ulgrim Red Wine.
Ulgrim tells you, "I'm not entirely convinced the Director and the Observer are communicating properly..."
Ulgrim tells you, "Thank you, I find this most pleasant. Run along, now."
Ulgrim tells you, "You know... two of the little flesh things managed to escape to the southeast..."
Ulgrim tells you, "I saw a human with a sword attack an Executor the other day. The human never stood a chance. Rip, rip, rip, another inert human."
Ulgrim tells you, "Just don't tell the Observer that I'm drinking this human filth, okay?"
Ulgrim tells you, "A pity the Dark Walker has been banished. He was most entertaining to watch."
