  • ▶️ Hoodwink.

  • ▶️ Cross me and I'll cross you out.
  • ▶️ The wood teaches one rule: step fast or you're snack meat.
  • ▶️ I'm mean as, and twice as quick.
  • ▶️ I step through the forest like it's not even there.
  • ▶️ Better watch where you're going, never know what's lurking in the deep wood.
  • ▶️ Ehhh, there's some nice woodland around here. Guess I could be bothered.
  • ▶️ I'm not for hire... But this does pique my interest.
  • ▶️ Everything's a bit of a game if you ask me!
  • ▶️ Fair's for you to worry about.
  • ▶️ Gonna stand here all day, or sniff out a bit of fun?
  • ▶️ If you've heard of me, I must be doing something wrong...
  • ▶️ What do I look like, a hunter? I'm a vegetarian... most of the time.
  • ▶️ My aims are my own, best you don't end up as one of them.
  • ▶️ Civilization always looked an awful lot like a boot heel.
  • ▶️ Criminals are the ones obsessed with fire, so what if I burned some of their stuff?

  • ▶️ No worries really only applies to me. That bunch should have heaps of worry.

  • ▶️ I was born with nothing to lose. There's nothing they can do to stop me.
  • ▶️ Why would I name it? It just a piece of wood. A really awesome piece of wood, but still.

15% chance

  • ▶️ There's a lot of more we could do with a bag if you ask me. Which no one ever does. Because why on earth would they? We're not exactly talking about geniuses are we? Honestly, there's a real lack of imagination around here.

Capturing Outposts[]

  • ▶️ Another one of these bloody things?
  • ▶️ Who even keeps these up? I should boost 'em.
  • ▶️ There's some abandoned ones of these round where I grew up. Fun to play in.
  • ▶️ I don't want it. But they sure as heck aren't getting it.
  • ▶️ Wait, we're not burning it? I already got the pine pitch...
  • ▶️ Whose stupid idea was it to put these things here anyway?

Leveling up[]

  • ▶️ Nice. Do it again.
  • ▶️ Just adding on to perfect.
  • ▶️ It doesn't hurt the other side's proper thick.
  • ▶️ Always was a bright spark.
  • ▶️ It's almost like divine intervention. If I believed in that sorta stuff. Which I do not.
  • ▶️ You could bottle my essence.
  • ▶️ That all went straight to the tail.
  • ▶️ Everything's above board here.
  • ▶️ Right on. Keep at it.
  • ▶️ r Just cuz I'm never gonna grow old doesn't mean I don't wanna level up.
  • ▶️ Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
  • ▶️ I'm a quick study.
  • ▶️ There's good, there's better, and then there's plain old me.
  • ▶️ r Don't any of you ever get tired of congratulating yourselves?
  • ▶️ Yeah yeah, don't get a big head.
  • ▶️ I'm field smart.
  • ▶️ Everything just got a little bit keener.
  • ▶️ r Rip and roll.
  • ▶️ Always on the level.
  • ▶️ I'll punch a Durana right in its stupid eye and take a tentacle for snarlers!
  • ▶️ Oh sweet. Wanna see something really cool? We'll need a handy target.
  • ▶️ r Woah.
  • ▶️ I didn't get this good NOT to kill stuff.
  • ▶️ My oh my. Now's when we get to the good stuff.
  • ▶️ OK, so this is what a god complex feels like. Cool.
  • ▶️ Starting to feel a bit nutty.
  • ▶️ r Look, I don't need to be a god here. Let's just win this thing already.
  • ▶️ If someone asks me if I'm a god, I'll say yes.
  • ▶️ Might need to get myself a new shooting rig if this keeps up.
  • ▶️ Call me critter now!

Killing an enemy[]

  • ▶️ Watch your step eh? Heaps of danger about.
  • ▶️ There's no end to the things I can do to you.
  • ▶️ Well, who were you expecting?
  • ▶️ What's this then? Not gonna pay the toll?
  • ▶️ Got yourself in a bit of a quandary eh?
  • ▶️ Say hello to my little friend!
  • ▶️ Could have had you a ways back, but I always pick my spots.
  • ▶️ Let me tell you a little story about your gold, and my pocket.
  • ▶️ I'm sorry, did you think you were hunting me?
  • ▶️ r You don't even have anything interesting.
  • ▶️ And don't think I'll run out of ammo, I've always got another stash.
  • ▶️ Well there's your problem.
  • ▶️ You should have stayed out of the woods.
  • ▶️ Stay out of the pines!
  • ▶️ Quit packin' a sad, eh? You lost fair-ish n' square.
  • ▶️ I was born for this. You're just a pretender.
  • ▶️ Am I this good or is my weapon blessed?
  • ▶️ Another notch for the Hood.
  • ▶️ Wish you made better choices?
  • ▶️ Yeah nah, don't get ahead of yourself.
  • ▶️ That one's a bit suss eh? Maybe poke him with a stick.
  • ▶️ You're lucky I didn't do worse, but I got time.
  • ▶️ You? On a battlefield? Yeah right.
  • ▶️ Let's not get too worked up about it.
  • ▶️ Don't let it get you down. I'm good. Really, really good
  • ▶️ r You might take this time to reflect upon why you messed with me in the first place.
  • ▶️ r You might not think it to look at me, but I've racked up quite the body count.
  • ▶️ Not today, drongo!
  • ▶️ About carked it, eh?
  • ▶️ Try not getting caught with your trousers down.
  • ▶️ Do you mind? I'm trying to celebrate.
  • ▶️ If I'd known you were a bloody winger, I'd have aimed for the mouth.
  • ▶️ r Now I should tell you, I don't usually kill my victims straight away.
  • ▶️ r I could have toyed with you a bit, but you're just not that interesting.
  • ▶️ Did you fall out of the nest as a baby?
  • ▶️ Any life experience you'd like me to collect on your behalf?
  • ▶️ Barked up the wrong tree, I reckon.
  • ▶️ r Could I kill you just as easy without the crossbow? Of course! But it'd make a helluva mess.
  • ▶️ I don't need to gloat. That'd get exhausting.
  • ▶️ I got a knack for that.
  • ▶️ Clincher!
  • ▶️ All's well that ends with me winning.
  • ▶️ Catch ya later dingleberry!
  • ▶️ That's crack up!
  • ▶️ Hands off the tail, cuz.
  • ▶️ Hands off the tail, bro.
  • ▶️ You bloody egg.
  • ▶️ I got blisters on me fingers.
  • ▶️ What else you planning that I can ruin?
  • ▶️ Read the tail.
  • ▶️ Ahahahahahah!

  • ▶️ Anti-Mage minimap icon r You eh? To be honest I was hoping for the other one.
  • ▶️ Anti-Mage minimap icon r The other one might have had better luck.
  • ▶️ Arc Warden minimap icon r This one's heaps of fun! Get to kill him again and again!
  • ▶️ Arc Warden minimap icon r Glad I didn't get zapped.
  • ▶️ Axe minimap icon r If I had a gold piece for every Oglodi I kill, I'd have enough to start using acorns for impractical purposes.
  • ▶️ Bane minimap icon r I'll never burn that sight outta my brain!
  • ▶️ Batrider minimap icon r That bat had a giant parasite. I probably did him a favour.

  • ▶️ Earth Spirit minimap icon r Hey, what a coincidence! My first hard targets to practice with were little rolling rocks. I guess they prepared me better than I thought!
  • ▶️ Earthshaker minimap icon r It was like aiming at a broadside of an oak. What could be easier?
  • ▶️ Elder Titan minimap icon r See the trick is, never set limits for yourself. I never set out to kill a Titan, but I never thought I couldn't neither.

  • ▶️ Monkey King minimap icon r Looks like I'm the king of mischief now.

  • ▶️ Naga Siren minimap icon r Heck, with that singing voice it was either bolt or bolt her. And I felt like staying.
  • ▶️ Nature's Prophet minimap icon r Look, I told you I'm not big on affiliations. Stay outta wherever I am.

  • ▶️ Oracle minimap icon r Wait wait, I want to think of one you never heard before or after.

  • ▶️ Storm Spirit minimap icon r Looks like the power grid's out, mate.
  • ▶️ Sven minimap icon r My first thought was your sword's impractical. But now I see it's actually impracticable.
  • ▶️ Templar Assassin minimap icon r Never had much time for book smarts. And this right here's the reason why.

These are monologues, their lines always play in the same order. The monologues are played in the order shown
"Bandits" monologue

  • ▶️ Yeah, I guess sometimes people think they can push me around, but it's easy enough to educate 'em.
  • ▶️ Like the Thornridge Gang. Thought they could bully me into being some kind of gopher.
  • ▶️ The first two came to find me, I let go minus a few pints and pieces.
  • ▶️ The next four? Well, only one of them crawled away at all. And I kept more than my fair share.
  • ▶️ Of course you'd have to be an idiot to keep coming at me after a thing like that.
  • ▶️ So the next six I treated real special. Enough to make a demon cry.
  • ▶️ After that, I'd be the idiot if I'd just left things on course.
  • ▶️ So I crossed out the whole lot of 'em.
  • ▶️ The locals who found the bodies decided the place is cursed.
  • ▶️ So it makes a choice hideout if you're ever in need.

"Durana" monologue

  • ▶️ Paws down, the most dangerous beastie in the deep wood is the Durana.
  • ▶️ And the danger's not just the tentacles or the teeth or the paralytic secretions neither.
  • ▶️ It's the temptation. The loss of control.
  • ▶️ Because Durana pheromones aren't for breeding. They're for feeding.
  • ▶️ And they affect different folk in different ways.
  • ▶️ You haven't seen bonkers till you've seen a column of cavalry get swept up in the Durana daze.
  • ▶️ Some going giggly, others going mad.
  • ▶️ Not a single one looking out for hungry beasties slinking up behind.
  • ▶️ I don't have to worry though.
  • ▶️ That stuff only works on bigger prey.
  • ▶️ So even when one does does feel inclined to snatch at me... Well, tentacles and teeth only go so far.

"Durana Invasion" monologue

  • ▶️ First thing you need to know about the Durana: they aren't natural.
  • ▶️ Sure, they breed faster'n swamp rabbits....
  • ▶️ But the first ones were conjured up outta thin air by some wizard.
  • ▶️ And wizards are morons. So of course the beasties got outta control and ran amok.
  • ▶️ So now everybody's gotta deal with this horrific invasive species that likes to eat grown men for a snack.
  • ▶️ Heh...though there's some in the pacified lands who think I'm in an invasive species.
  • ▶️ Maybe they're not wrong.
  • ▶️ When I can figure out how to bait the Durana into Krimwohl anyway, I guess we're gonna find out.

"Home" monologue

  • ▶️ My uncle used to say we'd never had to leave home if that little goblin lady never showed up selling her magic powder.
  • ▶️ Krimwohl was mostly harmless before they got the black powder.
  • ▶️ And whether she meant for them to suss out how to make it for themselves or not, point is they'd never in a jillion years've done it without getting their mitts on it in the first place.
  • ▶️ Once they got it though, their appetites grew. All their appetites.
  • ▶️ And any of us living on the lands they wanted had no choice but to surrender, run, or die to make a stand.
  • ▶️ So we came to the Wood Tomo'kan. The dark wood -- where they say bad things await all warm bloods that enter.
  • ▶️ Wasn't always that way, I guess. But it has been the stretch of my life.
  • ▶️ Used to just be some normal woods. But then the wizard trials came.
  • ▶️ Some big old wizard schools set 'em up. Big tests to show off and challenge their rising stars.
  • ▶️ But nothing's worse in the world than a wizard out to prove something.
  • ▶️ And they go and gather them all up in one place?
  • ▶️ Something bad was bound to happen. And it did.
  • ▶️ So all the normal folk had to leave the Tomo'kan.
  • ▶️ All you got left living there now's the outlaw type and those who got no other choice.
  • ▶️ No sane folk would settle in the darkwood now.
  • ▶️ And of course, while all their little traps and beasties and jimjams are everywhere, there's not a wizard to be found.
  • ▶️ Who needs them.

"Seehome" monologue

  • ▶️ Till recently, I never had much interest in seeing my old home.
  • ▶️ Who wants to see pacified lands when the stories of old are better?
  • ▶️ In the end, it wasn't the idea of the place that took me scouting back...but memories of my kin.
  • ▶️ I wondered if some might still be out there -- proper citizens of Krimwohl now.
  • ▶️ It was enough to take me to the treeline, anyway.
  • ▶️ Even if I didn't find anyone worth seeing, I was sure I could scare up a bit of good fun.

"Helping" monologue

  • ▶️ The first time I saw one of the work camps, I knew I'd be back.
  • ▶️ There was so much to muck up, I could keep busy for days.
  • ▶️ I never really thought about helping anyone escape.
  • ▶️ I thought they wanted to be there. Even now, I know heaps of 'em do.
  • ▶️ But there were some who saw the lure of freedom...even if the price seemed too steep.
  • ▶️ Life in the darkwood's not easy. But the cunning can step free from the sight of would-be rulers.
  • ▶️ And for some folk -- like me -- that's enough.

"Sister" monologue

  • ▶️ Most of my life, I thought my little sis' carked it back on the Night of Fire.
  • ▶️ But a few seasons back, I was tracking along the treeline near the pacified zone, and...
  • ▶️ Well I'd know that red tail anywhere.
  • ▶️ She was out with some sort of work crew.
  • ▶️ Farming or some nonsense. Like there weren't a world of food a few leaps away.
  • ▶️ I couldn't get two steps towards her 'less I wanted to light the place up.
  • ▶️ And I didn't even know if she remembered me. She was hardly bigger than a biscuit back when.
  • ▶️ Not the right move to re-introduce myself with a massacre probably.
  • ▶️ I watched for a spot to catch her out, but the overseers kept a bloody harsh eye.
  • ▶️ Then the whole bunch scampered off. And I burned the crops.
  • ▶️ I've been back there now lotsa times. But she hasn't, far as I can see.
  • ▶️ I have seen some familiar faces amongst the work crews.
  • ▶️ And I'm sure I woulda known heaps 'a the others if all our lives hadn't gone up like a keg of powder.
  • ▶️ I always try not to hurt any of those types when I go in for a bit of fun with the guards.
  • ▶️ But anyone who tries to fight is fair game.
  • ▶️ I doubt we woulda been that close anyway.

"Cityfolk" monologue

  • ▶️ Every now and then some city-stinking crew will venture out into the brush trying to find whatever dumb thing's the latest fancy.
  • ▶️ Even without my help they'd end up dead one way or another.
  • ▶️ Sure as. No greenhorns last long in the deep wood.
