Filnjar: "How are your parents faring, Grelka? Doing better than we are I would guess."
Grelka: "It's no feast in their neck of the woods either. Last time I was up there, father said they were barely scraping by."
Filnjar: "This civil war is taking its toll on all of us. Miners are some of the hardest hit."
Grelka: "That's what scares me. I'm afraid I'll travel to Darkwater Crossing and find it burned to the ground."


Grogmar: "I've been cracking rock ever since I've been able to hold a pickaxe and I'm telling you, this mine is drying up."
Filnjar: "And I'm telling you, you're wrong."
Grogmar: "What makes you so sure? What if I'm right?"
Filnjar: "I know there's ore still in there, I can smell it. You think you're right, you can pack up and leave any time you like."


Odfel: "You think living with Grogmar is easy? Did you see how he lives?"
Filnjar: "You two will just have to learn how to get along until we can build you another house."
Odfel: "At this rate that'll never happen."
Filnjar: "Quit your bellyaching. We've all got our problems."
