Show: An Unexpected Fall

"Well, this is a strange place to see a familiar face, but it's a pleasant surprise as well! Did you fall down that hole, too?"

Your brother Raynor said you fell into this ruin. "Fell? I'll have you know I'm an expert dungeon-delver! I don't fall. I drop gracefully. But yeah, I certainly wasn't planning on getting down here using that particular method. Hey, where is my brother? I could use his help down here."
Is there something I can do to help? "Now that you mention it, I was hoping to collect a Dwarven power core. But the only one I saw was protected by a Ztheng Guardian! If you could get the core, I'd appreciate it. Raynor loves those things! Uses them to build all kinds of devices."
Why do you need a Dwarven power core? "Me? I don't need it. But my brother Raynor collects the things. Uses them to make all sorts of strange and interesting devices. Since we're down here, I figured we should get one for him. He hasn't had one to tinker with in quite a while."
What kind of devices does Raynor make? "Oh, all sorts of things. Sometimes they don't do what he thought they would, and every so often they explode, but otherwise he really is a genius―when he isn't being a complete and utter dunce."
"(If spoken to again) I could have saved you a lot of trouble if I had brought my brother's radial component extractor with me. But what can I say? I'm spontaneous! I'll finish up here and meet you by the main entrance after you get the power core."
What have you and Raynor been up to since Coldharbour? "After all that excitement in Coldharbour, Raynor and I thought it would be boring to go back to digging through mundane ruins. But not only did Coldharbour open up vast new opportunities for us, it also gave us an appreciation for the simple things."
What sort of opportunities? "This job in Wrothgar, for example. Actually got an invitation from the king! We've also got a lead on something big, but our contact asked us to keep the details quiet for the time being. When it all comes together, maybe I can tell you more."

At the end of the quest:

"You found one, didn't you? I knew you could do it! Thanks! And don't worry, next time I fall into an ancient ruin I'll make sure to come prepared. Maybe even have a plan or something."

"I'll take off if I were you. Raynor's going to build something that turns these Dwarven constructs into his personal army. Or, more likely, there's going to be a massive ka-boom. But thanks for the help all the same!"
Show: Long Live the King

"If anyone asks, just tell them that you know us. What? It's research! How often do we get to attend a king's funeral and coronation?"

Show: Honest Work
Before talking to Raynor Vanos:

"Well, look who it is! Did you get marooned here, too? Now, before you ask: Yes, we're in trouble again. And no, I don't know how we're going to get out of it. Maybe you can talk to Raynor to help us figure something out?"

After talking to Raynor Vanos:

"I usually see the tomb as half full, but even I was about to give up hope before you showed up. If you can help us raise the gold we need to leave this wretched city, we'd really appreciate it!"

How did you end up in Anvil if you were heading for Hammerfell? "Now that's a tale to make the Brave Little Scrib cry. Raynor insists that the captain made a mistake, but I saw the contract they signed before we were marooned here. My brother charted a ship to Anvil, not Sentinel. This is all his fault."
Why would Raynow charter a ship to Anvil? "He mixed up names! Anvil, Hammerfell, they all sound the same to my brother! After we'd set sail, he said he couldn't wait to see the towers of Anvil. I reminded him we were sailing to Sentinel. So he ran to see the captain, but it was too late."
What were you going to Hammerfell for? "We had a line on a new Dwarven ruin. Well, not new. Newly discovered? Anyway, it's near Tava's Blessing and it's entirely fresh and unexplored! If me and Raynor can get there before the grave robbers, imagine the amazing things that we'll find!"
You want the Dwarven relics for yourselves? "What? No! We're dungeon-delvers, not tomb raiders! My brother has a deep and abiding respect for the Dwarves. He's obsessed with learning everything he can about their ancient technology. Me? I just love to explore old places. It's my calling!"
Any suggestions on who might be interested in hiring you? "I tried to handle a shift at the local tavern, but the customers couldn't keep their sweaty paws to themselves! You can't blame me for breaking a few fingers. They were touching my body, after all. That's when the innheeper's wife fired me."
There must be somewhere you'd like to work. "I thought about helping the Rowdy Guar, but the ships captain is a cheat! What I really want to do is sing. I've serenaded in taverns from Deshaan to Eastmarch. I never received a standing ovation in Orsinium! Unfortunately, Anvil has no taste."

After finding jobs for Kireth and Raynor:

"You're back. Did you have any luck? Did you find anyone who's willing to hire us? Wait, don't tell me. I need a moment to compose myself. Tell Raynor how things turned out while I have a sit down."

After talking to Raynor:

"All right, I'm ready to hear the news now. What kind of job did you sign me up for? Bodyguard? Spy for the Pact? Private chef for a visiting dignitary? Tell me, tell me, tell me!"

You can sing in the tavern. Pius promised to pay you well. "That's wonderful news! Those drunken pirates are in for a treat! Thank you for negotiating an excellent deal. Now what I should sing? Something from the Tribunal Soliloques? Maybe one of the sujamma drinking songs? So many choices!"
They're going to love you. "You did more for us than anyone in this wretched city. Raynor and I will do our jobs and complete our contracts. Then it's off to Hammerfell! There are ruins to explore, adventures to partake in! I'm all tingly with anticipation."

After talking to her again:

"A little work, a little gold, and we'll be in Sentinel in no time! Thanks to you."

Show: Enrick's Public House

"Oh, you just missed it! My rendition of "Rememberings" from the Dark Elf musical "Guars" brought the house down! It's a sad, touching number with a few light moments, but I've never seen a crowd laugh so hard. I guess I really nailed the high notes."

How did your findings at Bthanual turn out? "I wrote a book about the ruins and Raynor was able to make improvements to his control rod thingamabob, but we decided to pass on both the Academy and the Mages Guild. We learned that an independent life of adventure suits us just fine."
Have you make any progress with that memory orb from Mzulft yet? "A little. I'm not having any better luck with my new journal, though. The pages keep falling out! Raynor says I'm too hard on my books, but it has to be shoddy construction. They just don't make bindings like they used to. It's kind of disgraceful."
Glad to see you made it back from Coldharbour "You and me both! I'm all for exploring new places, but that place was just wrong! I just wish everyone had made it back from that damn place. I miss King Dynar. And poor Darien. He was kind of a flirt, but he had a hero's heart."
