2 Hello. And who might you be?
3 Greetings, Maximillian. Have you a moment?
4 Sir! Is that any way for gentlemen to speak to one another?
5 You're asking for a beating, speaking like that...
6 Maximillian! Why the harsh word?
7 You'd best rescind that comment or face a beating, Maximillian...
9 Uh, hi! Who you?
10 Hey, Max! Got questions!
13 [He considers you a moment, then inclines his head to you.] I see you're an individual of class and good breeding. My assessment of you was wrong, and I'm sorry...
13 [He considers you a moment, then inclines his head to you.] I see you're an individual of class and good breeding. My assessment of you was wrong, and I'm sorry...
14 That's not a problem sir. Might I ask who you are?
15 It's forgotten, Maximillian. Might I ask you a few questions?
17 Really? [He steps up to you, his brow furrowing, his fists clenching.] And who do you propose is going to give me that beating, boy?
17 Really? [He steps up to you, his brow furrowing, his fists clenching.] And who do you propose is going to give me that beating, woman?
18 That would be me, old man. Prepare yourself...
19 Please...can't we speak as civilly to one another?
21 No one speaks to Maximillian like that, boy. You die now...

23 [The man before you is old, but still holds himself with strength and dignity. He seems to take all of you in at once, weighing what he sees before him.] My name is Maximillian.

24 A pleasure, Maximillian. Might I ask you a few questions?
25 Hi, Max! I aks you sum questions?
26 Of course...
26 Of course...
27 What are you doing out here?
28 I spoke with Norian in town...he mentioned you were out here...
29 I've brought you a jug of moonshine from Norian...
30 Could we continue our earlier conversation...?
32 What you doing out here, Max?
33 I brought you jug of moonshine!
37 You have? I see that Norian hadn't the backbone to deliver it himself? (Maximillian laughs.) Not that I can blame him...the wilds are no place to be risking your neck for a jug of potato wine. I appreciate it, stranger. I'm sure he wants a receipt? Of course...here you go. [He hands you a note.]

38 Thank you. Might I ask you a few questions?
40 Thanks! I ask you some questions?
43 He did? [He seems a little put off.] What business does Norian have speaking about me? I want only to be left alone. Even out here in the wilds can find no peace...
43 He did? [He seems a little put off.] What business does Norian have speaking about me? I want only to be left alone. Even out here in the wilds can find no peace...
44 Why do you live out here all alone?
45 I see. Well, I'll leave you be. Good day to you...
46 Why you out here all alone, Max?
49 That's my business, friend. The Isle of Despair is no place to be asking a man about his past. I recommend you mind your business, sir.
49 That's my business, madam. The Isle of Despair is no place to be asking a man about his past. I recommend you mind your business.
50 Every man has his secrets. Believe me, I understand...
51 Perhaps you could better acquaint me with the criminal mind...
52 I've no doubt you've plenty to hide, sir...
54 Uh...okay. I ask you more questions...?
57 [He takes a step closer, looming over you.] What? Are you intimating that I'm a criminal? You know nothing of me, friend. I suggest you reconsider your words...I'm not a man to be insulted...
57 [He takes a step closer, looming over you.] What? Are you intimating that I'm a criminal? You know nothing of me, friend. I suggest you reconsider your words...I'm not a man to be insulted...
58 I've no wish for trouble. If you're no criminal, then what are you?
59 I've dealt with criminal rubbish like you before. Step away.
62 I told you...I've no wish to speak of it. Especially not with the denizens of this god-forsaken Isle. There's not a man among you would understand the things I've endured...
62 I told you...I've no wish to speak of it. Especially not with the denizens of this god-forsaken Isle. There's not a man among you would understand the things I've endured...
63 I'm sure you're right. I've weathered much already myself...
64 Your wallowing sickens me, old man...
67 [He smirks at you.] No offense, young lady, but you haven't the slightest idea as to what my life is here, or what it was before. No doubt you were shipped here due to some reproachable offense...thievery, murder. You're all the same...

68 Actually, I came here of my own accord...
69 You're making unwarranted assumptions. A young man's mistake...
70 You're making unwarranted assumptions. A young man's mistake...
71 Old man are the same as well...senile and weak...
74 [He seems a little surprised. He gives you a shrewd look, making a new appraisal.] You're right. Please, forgive my short-sightedness. No doubt you've things of value to share as well. Perhaps you and I might have something to speak of after all...

75 I'd enjoy that. Tell me of yourself, Maximillian...
76 I doubt it. I don't confide in degenerates like yourself...
77 Perhaps later. I'll return in a while...
79 [Your comment does little but annoy him.] And who are you to judge me? You've not the years to warrant such an opinion, boy. Perhaps it's best that you leave...
79 [Your comment does little but annoy him.] And who are you to judge me? You've not the years to warrant such an opinion, girl. Perhaps it's best that you leave...
80 Wisdom is not only weighed in years, but also in words...
81 Aged wine is smooth, but older wine is sour...
82 I tire of your words, old man. I'm going to put an end to them...
85 This conversation is over, friend. You'd best leave, and now. I won't warn you again...
85 This conversation is over, friend. You'd best leave, and now. I won't warn you again...
89 Perhaps now is a good time to tell stories. But forgive me if I'm a little leery of companionship. I've spent many years out here in the wilds by myself. Might I ask you to tell me of yourself before I begin?

90 I'd rather not speak of my past, nor of my reasons for being here...
91 Of course. It began not long ago...[Tell him your tale.]
92 Perhaps another time. I'll return later.
93 Yes...I'd be interested in speaking with you again...please return...
93 Yes...I'd be interested in speaking with you again...please return...
94 That's a shame. Perhaps I misjudged you, friend. Maybe it's better we don't speak after all. I bid you good day...

95 I think we've spoken enough, friend. Leave me be...

96 [He is silent for a long time. Then...] It seems grave times have come to Arcanum. And somehow you've become entangled in her problems. You're a brave soul, madam. Few are those who would do the things you've done...
96 [He is silent for a long time. Then...] It seems grave times have come to Arcanum. And somehow you've become entangled in her problems. You're a brave soul, sir. Few are those who would do the things you've done...
97 I just want people to stop trying to kill me...
98 Virtue and valor allow me to act in no other way...
99 My reasons are my own. Make no judgments concerning them...
101 We've all our reasons, I suppose. I'm not a man to judge one way or another. But I do know that, in the end, a man is the sum of his actions. You will be weighed in the same manner...

102 Why don't you tell me your story, Maximillian...?
104 [Maximillian smiles.] You've no idea how refreshing it is to hear someone speak in such a noble manner, madam. There were years I believed that there were no men left in this land who knew what those words meant...

105 Why don't you tell me your story, Maximillian...?
107 Yes...it is long past time that someone know my tale. Tell me friend...do you know of anything of the kingdom of Cumbria? Her capital city of Dernholm? King Praetor the First?
107 Yes...it is long past time that someone know my tale. Tell me friend...do you know of anything of the kingdom of Cumbria? Her capital city of Dernholm? King Praetor the First?
108 I've heard things about that place, but I know very little...
109 I've been there before...
110 I know nothing of Cumbria...
112 I see. The Cumbria I speak of was a much different place...far different than what it is today, I'm sure. I speak of a time when Cumbria was a powerful kingdom, when the elves and dwarves would come to her walls to pay tribute to her king. When the banners of the famed Dragon Knights were a thing to be respected and feared...

113 I take it Cumbria is no longer that place?
114 I've seen Cumbria...it falls far from what you describe...
116 No...there's no doubt that Cumbria is but a shadow of her former glory. The day came long ago when her fate was sealed. The day when technology began to rival magic, when the old ways began to fall to the new...
116 No...there's no doubt that Cumbria is but a shadow of her former glory. The day came long ago when her fate was sealed. The day when technology began to rival magic, when the old ways began to fall to the new...
117 What happened? Did Cumbria resist that change?
118 Let us speak of this later...
120 Yes, and vehemently. My...the King at the time, Torren, was a wise and brave man, but set in his ways. [Maximillian smiles, sadly.] He was cut from sterner stuff, but he was like stone...unwavering, but inflexible. He failed to see how Cumbria needed to grow, to change...

121 And so?
123 And so, he passed laws outlawing the use of technology in his lands, and set a ruling council of mage advisors at his side. For years Cumbria was still very strong and influential, but it was only a matter of time...

124 What happened?
125 Let us speak of this later...
127 Well, Cumbria was surpassed, both in commerce and in power. When mighty Tarant demanded the release of certain disputed lands, Cumbria was taught a harsh lesson. The armies of Cumbria were slaughtered, the Dragon Knights cut down by gun and cannonfire. The glory of older days was lost...

128 And what of King Torren? What happened to him...
131 [Maximillian looks to the horizon; he is far away.] He was killed. He led the final charge of the Dragon Knights, and was shot as any common soldier. Unwavering and brave to the end...

132 I see. What does all of this have to do with you, Maximillian...?
133 Let us speak of this later...
135 [He seems to come to himself, looking back at you.] With the death of Torren came a power struggle. There were those who believed that Cumbria should embrace the new age, to seek a better way and make her powerful again...
135 [He seems to come to himself, looking back at you.] With the death of Torren came a power struggle. There were those who believed that Cumbria should embrace the new age, to seek a better way and make her powerful again...
136 But others thought differently...?
138 Yes. Some people cannot see the answer, even when it is laid before them in the form of a dead King. Torren had two sons...the older son believed in the new ways, and the younger son believed in nothing. And so, the mage council that Torren had put in place put their influence behind the younger son...

139 Wasn't the older son heir to the throne by birthright?
140 Wait...I'm a little unclear as to all of this...
141 Let us speak of this later...
143 Cumbria was a powerful kingdom before the advent of technology. King Torren resisted the changes that were happening in the world and outlawed the use of technology. He died in a battle with Tarant, and there was a struggle for the throne between his two sons.

144 Thank you. But wasn't the older son heir to the throne?
146 Yes, but men will create all manner of evil in pursuit of power. The mage council, who controlled the younger son, brought false allegations against the older son, charging him with treason. He was taken in the night, and sent away to rot in prison for the rest of his days...

147 The older son...by the gods...!
149 Yes, stranger. The older son was me. I was sent here by my own brother, King Praetor the First of Cumbria. And I've been here ever since...
149 Yes, stranger. The older son was me. I was sent here by my own brother, King Praetor the First of Cumbria. And I've been here ever since...
150 I don't know what to say. I've no words...
151 Such are the vagaries of politics, Maximillian
152 That's a shame, old boy. Well...I must be going...
154 No words are necessary, friend. You've done enough to sit here and listen to my story. I've made peace with my past...life here on the Isle is harsh, but a man learns to live with himself, to accept what life brings.

155 But it was so unfair. Perhaps I could bring you home...
156 I see. I must be going, Maximillian...
158 That seems a fairly shallow assessment of my situation, friend. I've no longer any interest in speaking about this...
158 That seems a fairly shallow assessment of my situation, friend. I've no longer any interest in speaking about this...
159 Neither do I. Good day to you.
160 Wait...forgive the offense. Perhaps I could bring you home...
161 [He seems a little disappointed, but not overly so.] I see. Well, I'm glad you were here to listen to my story. I can rest well knowing that my memory will not die with me. Thank you, friend...

162 Good day to you, Maximillian...
164 No. My time in Cumbria has passed. If my brother lives, I'm sure he has paid the price due him. He was young and foolish...when one is a King, life is unforgiving when you live so...
164 No. My time in Cumbria has passed. If my brother lives, I'm sure he has paid the price due him. He was young and foolish...when one is a King, life is unforgiving when you live so...
165 But Cumbria...perhaps the kingdom still needs you...
167 [He looks at you, then away to the west.] I can still feel her, you know...the stone walls of Dernholm, the rolling hills and vales, the trumpet blast of the Dragon Knights marching to battle. I wake up sometimes, and I forget where I am...

168 Come back with me, Maximillian. It's not too late...
170 [He looks back again.] Perhaps. I will ask you this, friend. The Captain of the Dragon Knights was a man named Warren Pel Dar. He was my one true friend. If he still lives, and cares to do so, tell him I am here, and that I'd enjoy once more the pleasure of his company...

171 I already know of Warren Pel Dar... [Tell him of Lianna.]
172 I will, Maximillian. I swear to you...
173 If I get the chance, I'll look into the matter...
174 I thank you, my friend. And if he is dead, then forget about me. I've no desire to return to a Cumbria where men of his kind no longer remain...
174 I thank you, my friend. And if he is dead, then forget about me. I've no desire to return to a Cumbria where men of his kind no longer remain...
175 I see. Might I ask you a few more questions?
178 Yes. I've still much to tell you. We'll talk again, later...
178 Yes. I've still much to tell you. We'll talk again, later...
180 Surely. Where were we?
180 Surely. Where were we?
181 You were going to tell me of your past...
182 You were speaking of how Cumbria was resisting change...
183 You told me of how King Torren outlawed technology...
184 I was wondering what Cumbria had to do with you...
185 Wasn't the older of Torren's two sons the heir to the throne?
187 No man comes to the Isle of his own accord...we're all prisoners here, and prisoners we'll stay...
187 No man comes to the Isle of his own accord...we're all prisoners here, and prisoners we'll stay...
188 Why do you assume you know me, or my story?
189 I see you're imprisonment has made you bitter and blind...
190 I'm sure you're right. I'll leave you be...
192 Goodbye, friend. Perhaps one day we'll meet again...
192 Goodbye, friend. Perhaps one day we'll meet again...
195 [Sorrow passes over his face.] So...my old friend is dead. He shall be missed. But this Lianna...his daughter, you say? Tell me...what is she like?
195 [Sorrow passes over his face.] So...my old friend is dead. He shall be missed. But this Lianna...his daughter, you say? Tell me...what is she like?
196 She is a warrior, like her father...
197 She's beneath mentioning, really. Did I mention I killed her?
198 Uh...I can't remember, really...
200 I see. [He smiles.] Perhaps Cumbria still has a burning heart. If you wish, go to Lianna Pel Dar and tell her I am here. Who knows what will come of such things...? [You see a hard look come over his face. A proud look.]

201 I will, Maximillian. I swear to you...
202 If I get the chance, I'll look into the matter...
205 I would greatly appreciate it, friend. Good luck to you, wherever your travels might take you...

206 Farewell, Maximillian...
210 What!? You murderous dog! I will gut you where you stand!
