Dialogue[edit | edit source]

The Netch Hunt[edit | edit source]

"We have come south to test our worth against a mighty Netch, will you join us?"

A Netch? "The giant air-floaters from the dark elf lands. Only the brave dare to hunt them, only the strong survive them. Come. Test yourself against the beast with us. We all will share in the glory of the hunt!"
Think you'll win the fight? "A warrior expects nothing and therefore is ready for anything. If our aim and our hearts are true, the All-Maker will grant us strength. If not, today is as good a day to die as any other. Either way, they'll songs of our bravery around the campfires for many years."
Sounds fun. I'll join your hunt."Well met, friend. May we fight or die well."
Good Luck. "Luck? Luck will play no part today. We will earn our victory or return to the All-Maker."
