Dialogue[edit | edit source]
- Are you the owner Here?
I tell you, ever since people started bringing that black ice to town, the crowds have been rowdier, the lenders more miserly, and the pirates more savage. Wealth does strange things to people. You'd think with all this business I'd be making a profit.
Bah! These are my troubles, not yours. Drink up, and warm up your blood. If you're planning to prospect, you should head over to Frozenfar Expeditions and talk to Atenas Swift there. He's your best bet for provisions.
- I'll do that. Thanks for the drink!
- Are Atenas Swift?
With all the interest in black ice, I've sold through most of my kits and supplies. All that's left are a few bits and bobs. But if you need advice, I'm your man. I've been all over these hills, and scaled Kelvin's Cairn more than a few times. Age is starting to catch me, or else you'd see me out there fighting with the rest for that black ice.
I was expecting a shipment in this week, but the pirates got it. I don't like to disappoint my prospective customers, so here, take this. If you're looking for weapons or armor, talk to Notan Ivoryknife in the Market or visit Baerick's Iceforge and talk to Urgus Battlehammer. Steer clear of Baerick Hammerstone, though. He's trouble.
- I am much obliged.
- I hear you're who I should talk to about weapons.
I have to say, I am lucky Baerick Hammerstone lost his marbles. I've seen some of the work he's been doing with black ice, incorporating it into weapons and armor, and it is remarkable. He'd be putting me out of business if he wasn't completely barking mad. I've felt the craftsman's call, the all consuming passion to give form to an idea, but what Baerick's doing...
It makes me wonder if there is a connection between the black ice and... Nah. I'm sure it's fine.
- Thanks for you time.
- Are you Urgus?
The best is that troubled looking dwarf over there... Baerick Hammerstone. He was a nasty piece of work even before he went mad. Now, if he's not muttering away in the endless argument he has with the voices in his head, he's a raging terror driving away my customers. Such a shame. If I weren't his cousin, I'd see him drowned in the lake to put him - and Caer-Konig - out of his misery.
Anyway, if you have black ice, I can help you shape it - for a modest fee of course. Take a look at my wares!
- Of course.
