Speaking with Humans

While casting the Mask of Disguise or within Beguile Form, Kain has the opportunity to walk amongst humans, and to speak with them if he so chooses.  This dialogue with the villagers and townspeople is included here, on a separate page, to account for its nonlinearity. 


Ziegsturchl

Villagers
"Some poor knight was murdered only last week.  They found him on the roadside, all cut and stabbed and the like.  If a knight can be taken, what about us common folk?"

"I heard there was a bandit camp to the west of here."

"Hail stranger!  What can I get thee today?"

"It's not safe around here anymore.  Damned brigands and thieves in the wilderness."

"Goodday, to you!"

"I hear there is a bandit camp to the north of here."

Wenches (throughout the whole game)
"The nights can get very cold around here, stranger.  I can help you get through it."

"Ouch!  Hands off, ya ugly oaf!"

"Oooh, arenít you the handsome one?"


Nachtholm

Humans
"Beware, stranger – there was another vampire attack last night!"

"Something must be done quickly.  Two more victims were found...drained dry!"

"A drink for your troubles, sir?"

"I heard there was a bandit camp to the east of here."

"In these here parts it's grown cold and cruel.  The crops are blasted, the wind bites.  Never seen a worse time in all m' life."

"Don't venture around here without a good blade at your side!  You'll thank me for it!"

"Goodday, to you!"

"Hail stranger!  What can I get thee today?"

"It's not safe around here anymore.  Damned brigands and thieves in the wilderness."


Steinchencröe

Villagers and Guards
"I heard there is a bandit camp to the south of here."

"Aye, Iíve heard of a wise oracle that lives in the mountains to the north."

"Weíve heard rumors of great unrest in the north."

"Let us drink to the King's health!  For William the Just!"

"Thereís an evil in the air.  I can feel it."

"Itís not safe around here anymore.  Damned brigands and thieves in the wilderness."

"Hail stranger!  What can I get thee today?"


Vasserbünde

Gypsies
"The trading caravans from Avernus didnít show up this week.  Awful strange, you know."

"Something is amiss.  The wagons from Avernus just never turned up!"

"Them money-grubbing scabs always show on time.  Not this week, though..."

Guards
"Somethingís not right.  The pilgrims go in, but I ainít never seen one come out!"

"That lunatic on the hill, it's not right that we good people have to put up with his magic.  Something has to be done!"

"The mage is insane, I tell you!  Insane!  Listen, canít you hear him cackling to himself?"

"Donít venture around here without a good blade at yer side!  Youíll thank me for it!"

Villagers
"Nupraptor had servants.  One day, one escaped the keep and stumbled into our village.  Mad, he was!  And his skin and hair, white as a sheet!  Scared out of his wits!"

"There used to be a vampire living there, before the Sarafan hunted and killed him.  They say he screamed four score days and nights before he died!  He vowed vengeance, he did!"

"The Kingís heart pines for his daughter – someone stole her soul, you know..."

"I heard there was a bandit camp to the north of here."

"What'll it be? Sword? Shield? Hooving?"

"Sometimes, if you listen carefully, you can hear screams echoing from within!"

"I ainít ever been up there, nor would I ever."

"Oh woe is us!  The dark is upon us!"

"Accursed gypsies!  Bringing their wicked magic!  Nosgoth will never be the same!"

"Thereís an evil in the air.  I can feel it."

"Aye, Iíve heard of a wise oracle that lives in the mountains to the north."

"Some poor knight was murdered only last week.  They found him on the roadside, all cut and stabbed and the like.  If a knight can be taken, what about us common folk?"

"Beware, stranger – there was another vampire attack last night!"

"Goodday, to you!"

"Itís not safe around here anymore.  Damned brigands and thieves in the wilderness."


Coorhagen

Humans
"Unclean.  Begone.  Save yourself.  Unclean!"

"ĎTis the plague, my lord, it eats at our bodies.  There is no hope."

"Bring out your dead...  Bring out your dead."

"Begone, good sir, lest you share our fate."

"Ah, the mythical oracle you seek?!  He is said to dwell where the grass touches the snow; where the light touches the dark.  Across yonder mountains."

The villager south of the Oracleís Cave
"All sorts of weird things live in the swamps.  Some say that sprites and faeries dwell there!"


Uschtenheim

Camp Outside of Willendorf

Humans
"The shadows fall, and vampires descend..."

"What has become of the Lion of Willendorf?!  Who will protect us from the Nemesis?"

"Iíve heard that an army from the North is preparing to invade, is it true?"

"I know William the Just will do something about the vampires!"

"The Kingís heart pines for his daughter – someone stole her soul, you know..."

"Goodday, to you!"

"I hear there is a bandit camp to the north of here."

"Beware, stranger Ė there was another vampire attack last night!"


Willendorf

Humans
"When can we truly live in peace?  When will the vampires be gone?"

"Looks like it's going to be a hard winter."

"Ay, our King is kind and fair.  What fortunate citizens are we."

"We are doomed!  An army approaches and that fool Ottmar does nothing but weep!"

"Help us be rid of those vampires!  A hunting party begins tonight!"

"Weíve heard rumors of great unrest in the north."

"Some poor knight was murdered only last week.  They found him on the roadside, all cut and stabbed and the like.  If a knight can be taken, what about us common folk?"

"Taxes are down, spirits are up."

"Ay, our King is kind and fair.  What fortunate citizens are we."

"Help us be rid of those vampires!  A hunting party begins tonight!"

"Looks like it's going to be a hard winter."

Stahlberg - in the "New Nosgoth"

Villagers
"The hunt is over.  Vampires will plague us no more!"

"We've captured their champion.  Ah, there'll be a feast tonight!"

"Peace at last!  Since the vampires slaughtered our great king William the Just, we have had no rest!"

"Fifty years, we sought to fulfill our promise to our fallen king.  And now, our covenant comes to pass."

"When can we truly live in peace?  When will the vampires be gone?"
