1. Excuse me there, madam. I couldn't help but notice that you came out of the offices of Mr. Edward Willoughsby, the Chairman of the Industrial Council. Must have been quite an important piece of business...
1. Excuse me there, my good man. I couldn't help but notice that you came out of the offices of Mr. Edward Willoughsby, the Chairman of the Industrial Council. Must have been quite an important piece of business...
2. Yes...as a matter of fact it was.
3. Who are you to be asking?
4. Mind your OWN business, sir, and leave me alone...
6. Uh...yeah! He no want to talk to me...
9. Good day to you. Perhaps later you'll return, and we can continue this discussion...
9. Good day to you. Perhaps later you'll return, and we can continue this discussion...
11. I've no doubt that is the case. Mr. Willoughsby is a powerful man, and his influences are far-reaching. Men such as he, you just never know what they're getting into...
11. I've no doubt that is the case. Mr. Willoughsby is a powerful man, and his influences are far-reaching. Men such as he, you just never know what they're getting into...
12. What exactly are you insinuating, sir?
13. Yes, power has the tendency to corrupt most men...
14. I'd rather you didn't speak about Mr. Willoughsby that way...
16. Me...oh, just a concerned citizen. I know that Mr. Willoughsby is involved in much of what goes on in our fair city, so I make it my business to know what he's up to. And who he's talking to...
16. Me...oh, just a concerned citizen. I know that Mr. Willoughsby is involved in much of what goes on in our fair city, so I make it my business to know what he's up to. And who he's talking to...
17. You didn't answer my question. Who are you?
18. I see. And what exactly is YOUR interest here, sir.
19. Well, I don't enjoy being bothered. Leave me alone.
21. As I said, I'm one of a group of concerned individuals who are working towards a common goal. Mr. Willoughsby is a powerful man, and his influences are far-reaching. Men such as he, you just never know what they're getting into...

23. Yes, power has the tendency to corrupt most men...
24. I'd rather you didn't speak about Mr. Willoughsby that way...
25. I won't ask again. WHO ARE YOU?
27. No reason to get hostile, my friend. We're just two men having a conversation. Just like the conversation you had with Mr. Willoughsby. Although I'm sure not as interesting...men such as he, you just never know what they're getting into or what they're talking about...
27. No reason to get hostile, my friend. We're just two men having a conversation. Just like the conversation you had with Mr. Willoughsby. Although I'm sure not as interesting...men such as he, you just never know what they're getting into or what they're talking about...
28. What exactly are you insinuating, sir?
29. I'd rather you didn't speak about Mr. Willoughsby that way...
30. I'm not going to tell you again. Leave me alone or else...
31. No offense, but I really must go.
33. Nothing, nothing. It's only that a man might be talking to Mr. Willoughsby, and then Mr. Willoughsby might tell you something, and the next thing you know, you're involved in something you don't completely understand. Do you know what I'm talking about, madam?
33. Nothing, nothing. It's only that a man might be talking to Mr. Willoughsby, and then Mr. Willoughsby might tell you something, and the next thing you know, you're involved in something you don't completely understand. Something political, perhaps. Do you know what I'm talking about, sir?
34. I don't know what you're talking about. [Lie.]
35. Perhaps you mean the negotiations with Caladon?
36. No. You're making no sense to me...
37. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
39. Really? [He seems to believe you.] Well, perhaps you are a smart woman. Getting involved with Mr. Willoughsby might not be the most prudent course of action...
39. Really? [He seems to believe you.] Well, perhaps you are a wise man. Getting involved with Mr. Willoughsby might not be the most prudent course of action...
40. Perhaps you'd like to tell me what is you're talking about...
41. I'd rather not speak to you anymore. Good day.
43. Yes. [The man smiles, obviously happy with your answer.] Truer words have never been said. And power in the hands of the foolish is even more dangerous. Yes, indeed...
43. Yes. [The man smiles, obviously happy with your answer.] Truer words have never been said. And power in the hands of the foolish is even more dangerous. Yes, indeed...
44. What exactly are you insinuating, sir?
46. You see...you walked into Willoughsby's office only a little while ago, and now you're privy to delicate, national information. Not that I don't appreciate your candor in the matter, my friend. But, don't you feel that it's just a little strange?
46. You see...you walked into Willoughsby's office only a little while ago, and now you're privy to delicate, national information. Not that I don't appreciate your candor in the matter, my friend. But, don't you feel that it's just a little strange?
47. Yes...that does seem a little bit odd...
48. I'm sorry...who did you say you were?
49. I don't find it odd at all.
50. Perhaps I'd best be leaving...
52. That's interesting, friend. I mean, you just having arrived in Tarant, an outlander, and now you're considering acting as a mediator between two of the most powerful kingdoms in all of Arcanum. I don't know where you come from, madam, but where I'm from we call that strange and have no trouble doing so...

I don't know where you come from, sir, but where I'm from we call that strange and have no trouble doing so...
53. Perhaps you're correct. Who did you say you were?
54. I'm leaving. Good day to you, sir...
56. Hmmm. Awfully protective of Mr. Willoughsby, aren't you? Perhaps you two are sharing some sort of secret? Something you don't want the rest of the masses to know about? Sounds that way to me...
56. Hmmm. Awfully protective of Mr. Willoughsby, aren't you? Perhaps you two are sharing some sort of secret? Something you don't want the rest of the masses to know about? Sounds that way to me...
57. Fine. We were speaking of Caladon's membership in the U.K....
58. I'm sorry...who did you say you were?
59. I don't think I want to continue this conversation any longer...
61. It's a wise man who looks at what is before his eyes. You and I might have more in common than you think, friend...
61. It's a wise man who looks at what is before his eyes. You and I might have more in common than you think, friend...
62. Perhaps. Who are you, sir?
64. My name is Heinrich. Heinrich Jenks. I represent a concerned group of citizens, both here in Tarant and abroad. We've made it our business to...keep a close look on the political power structure in the Unified Kingdom, and to make sure that it's working toward a mutually beneficial end...

65. Can I assume that you believe Mr. Willoughsby is not doing so?
67. You might say that, friend. I know that he is currently involved in negotiations with Caladon, and that he is VERY interested in making sure that they become members in the Unified Kingdom. I believe this interest supersedes any other concerns he might have, including the interests of his own constituents. I find this troubling...

I believe this interest supersedes any other concerns he might have, including the interests of his own constituents. I find this troubling...
68. Are you saying that Caladon's membership is a bad idea?
69. Perhaps YOUR interests here might be in question...
70. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
72. [He faces goes unnaturally calm.] Are you questioning my patriotism, madam? I recommend you never, ever do that again...
72. [He faces goes unnaturally calm.] Are you questioning my patriotism, sir? I recommend you never, ever do that again...
73. Of course not, sir. Please continue...
74. You're a disgrace to the city kingdom.
76. Let's look at the facts, madam. Tarant, with the Unified Kingdom, is the most powerful kingdom in all of Arcanum. We have natural resources, shipping and railroads, as well as the most stable manufacturing framework of any city in the world. Much of our great wealth comes at the expense of cities like Caladon, in the form of taxes and tariffs...

77. So? What are you saying?
78. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
80. So? So Mr. Willoughsby, and his cohorts on the Council, are in effect taking away a great source of Tarant's wealth and power by allowing a kingdom like Caladon to join the Unified Kingdom. Caladon is dependent on us for resources like lumber and technology...if they are allowed to join the Unified Kingdom, then we lose that advantage!

Caladon is dependent on us for resources like lumber and technology...if they are allowed to join the Unified Kingdom, then we lose that advantage!
81. Hmmm. I see your point...
82. But wait! We also gain a military ally...we spend less on defense!
83. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
85. Yes, but so do they! You see, Caladon loses nothing by joining the Unified Kingdom, and they gain more time to solidify their place in the new age. Tarant embraced the ways of technology early, and so we have reaped the benefits. If Caladon is given the same chance, it only follows that eventually they too will become powerful...

Tarant embraced the ways of technology early, and so we have reaped the benefits. If Caladon is given the same chance, it only follows that eventually they too will become powerful...
86. But if they are our allies, we will have nothing to worry about...
87. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
89. [He gives you a long stare.] Are you really such a believer in human nature, friend? Do you think that a powerful, ambitious kingdom like Caladon would accept the authority of the Unified Kingdom for very long? In only a few years, their power will rival Tarant's, and then there will be war...

90. Hold on there. Why wouldn't Willoughsby see this?
91. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
93. Don't get me wrong, friend. It's men like Willoughsby who made Tarant what it is today. Men with vision, and the backbone to do whatever it takes to see that vision to its end. Tarant was not always so powerful, and to make it so had a great price...
93. Don't get me wrong, friend. It's men like Willoughsby who made Tarant what it is today. Men with vision, and the backbone to do whatever it takes to see that vision to its end. Tarant was not always so powerful, and to make it so had a great price...
94. What price? What do you mean?
95. If Willoughsby did this, then why question his actions now?
96. I think I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
98. That's another story, for another time. And not mine to tell, madam. Let us just say that the Tarantian monarchy was one of the victims of the Industrial Councils vision. As in any war, there are casualties...
98. That's another story, for another time. And not mine to tell, sir. Let us just say that the Tarantian monarchy was one of the victims of the Industrial Councils vision. As in any war, there are casualties...
99. If you respect Willoughsby, why question his actions now?
100. What does Willoughsby stand to gain from the negotiations?
102. Power can do strange things to men, my friend. What created Tarant was patriotism, but I'm afraid that greed is now the fuel behind her fire. Willoughsby stands to make quite a bit of money if Caladon joins the Unified Kingdom. Remember, he's a businessman first, a politician afterwards...

103. What does he stand to gain?
104. You said before there was a price in making Tarant great...
106. Manufacturing concessions, tax advantages...Caladon would do just about anything for a businessman who holds the power to push this agreement through, don't you think?
106. Manufacturing concessions, tax advantages...Caladon would do just about anything for a businessman who holds the power to push this agreement through, don't you think?
107. Perhaps. What are you suggesting be done, Mr. Jenks?
108. I believe I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
110. [He smiles.] You see? Two men, strangers really, can have a logical, rational conversation, and the next thing you know, things are being done. Good things, mind you, necessary things. Things that made this city great...
110. [He smiles.] You see? Two men, strangers really, can have a logical, rational conversation, and the next thing you know, things are being done. Good things, mind you, necessary things. Things that made this city great...
111. I've agreed to nothing, Jenks.
112. I'm willing to do whatever's necessary for the sake of the city...
113. I believe I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
115. Have I said that you have? I was just making an observation, madam. It's strange how great things sprout from such insignificant encounters, don't you think?
115. Have I said that you have? I was just making an observation, sir. It's strange how great things sprout from such insignificant encounters, don't you think?
116. I'm ready to hear what you have in mind, Jenks...
117. I believe I've heard enough, sir. Good day to you...
119. Good, good. [He lowers his voice.] Most importantly...did, or did not you accept the position as mediator between Caladon and the Unified Kingdom?
119. Good, good. [He lowers his voice.] Most importantly...did, or did not you accept the position as mediator between Caladon and the Unified Kingdom?
120. It was never mentioned...
121. I volunteered for the position, but was denied...
122. No, I haven't accepted it yet...
123. Yes...I've accepted it.
124. No...I haven't accepted it. [Lie.]
126. I see. Well, if you have the chance to speak with him again, see if you can't get him to appoint you the position. You'll have to be a fairly charismatic person, and a good speaker...Willoughsby knows how to choose his men. But having that position will be a real advantage for doing what needs to be done...
126. I see. Well, if you have the chance to speak with him again, see if you can't get him to appoint you the position. You'll have to be a fairly charismatic person, and a good speaker...Willoughsby knows how to choose his men. But having that position will be a real advantage for doing what needs to be done...
127. And that is?
129. I see. Well, that's not a problem we can't overcome. Although it would have been a great advantage in doing what needs to be done...
129. I see. Well, that's not a problem we can't overcome. Although it would have been a great advantage in doing what needs to be done...
130. And that is?
132. You have? That's splendid, my friend. Just splendid. You've no idea the advantage that's going to give you in doing what needs to be done...
132. You have? That's splendid, my friend. Just splendid. You've no idea the advantage that's going to give you in doing what needs to be done...
133. And that is?
135. Assassinating King Farad of Caladon.
135. Assassinating King Farad of Caladon.
136. I'm still listening, Jenks...
137. I'm still listening, Jenks...
138. I'm still listening, Jenks...
139. What? I had no idea...I'm leaving right now!
142. Yes...I'd pegged you for a patriot. We're in desperate need of men like you...the fate of Tarant rests in your hands. First, you should try for the appointment from Willoughsby...
142. Yes...I'd pegged you for a patriot. We're in desperate need of men like you...the fate of Tarant rests in your hands. First, you should try for the appointment from Willoughsby...
143. And if I receive the position?
144. I've already told you I didn't receive it...
145. Which I have already. How does that help me...?
147. Then you'll have special access to certain parts of the castle that would be inaccessible if you weren't a special envoy from Tarant. Places like the kitchen...
147. Then you'll have special access to certain parts of the castle that would be inaccessible if you weren't a special envoy from Tarant. Places like the kitchen...
148. Am I to meet someone there?
151. Yes. The man's name is Vernon. He will instruct you further.
151. Yes. The man's name is Vernon. He will instruct you further.
152. What if I don't get the position?
153. And if I do succeed in killing His Majesty?
155. Then you are to meet a man named Bullors down at the Caladon docks. He'll be around, and he'll be expecting you. He'll help you get into the castle, where you will have access to the kitchens, and then Mr. Vernon. Are we understood?

156. Clearly.
157. Let's go over it one more time...
159. Okay. If you're appointed the mediator for the negotiations, then you will travel to the castle, enter the royal kitchens, and meet a man named Vernon for instructions. If you are not appointed the position, meet a man named Bullors at the Caladon docks who will help you enter the castle. From there, you will have access to the kitchens, and Mr. Vernon. Understood?

160. Clearly.
161. Let's go over it one more time...
163. Good. If you succeed in assassinating King Farad, then return to Tarant, and meet me at Grant's Tavern. I'll have heard about it, and will wait there every day until you return. You will be paid no less than 20,000 gold pieces for your trouble. Agreed?

164. Agreed.
165. Agreed.
166. Agreed.
167. I'm no spy, fool! You'll die for your traitorous acts!
168. I'll think about it and get back to you...
170. Splendid. We won't speak of this again, although I will be here watching Willoughsby until you leave for Caladon. Good day to you, madam...
170. Splendid. We won't speak of this again, although I will be here watching Willoughsby until you leave for Caladon. Good day to you, sir...
173. Don't think too long, friend. An opportunity like this only comes once in a lifetime. When you've decided, come back here and tell me...
173. Don't think too long, friend. An opportunity like this only comes once in a lifetime. When you've decided, come back here and tell me...
176. [Jenks looks at you, sympathetically.] I see that Mr. Willoughsby is no judge of courage or good character. I'm very sorry he treated you so, good sir...
176. [Jenks looks at you, sympathetically.] I see that Mr. Willoughsby is no judge of courage or good character. I'm very sorry he treated you so, madam...
177. Uh...thank you! You talk with me...?
180. Of course I will! You know, this fair city was built by people like you...built on their hopes and dreams and hard work. Perhaps Mr. Willoughsby has forgotten that...
180. Of course I will! You know, this fair city was built by people like you...built on their hopes and dreams and hard work. Perhaps Mr. Willoughsby has forgotten that...
181. Yeah! I like city! Good city!
184. Of course you do. Who wouldn't? And people like Mr. Willoughsby are trying to destroy it! Make it a bad place!
184. Of course you do. Who wouldn't? And people like Mr. Willoughsby are trying to destroy it! Make it a bad place!
185. What? What you talkin' 'bout?
188. Well, not to get to complicated, but Mr. Willoughsby is talking with Caladon about becoming a part of the Unified Kingdom...do you know what that is?
188. Well, not to get to complicated, but Mr. Willoughsby is talking with Caladon about becoming a part of the Unified Kingdom...do you know what that is?
189. Uh...no, I not think so...
191. Well, it's a group of cities that all work together to make Arcanum a good place. But Caladon is a bad city, and I don't think that they should be a part of the Unified Kingdom. I think they would ruin it, and maybe do bad things to Tarant...

192. Uh...okay! What we do to stop them?
195. I knew you were a good person! A brave person! You need to go to Caladon, and kill the King so that they won't want to be a part of the Unified Kingdom! And then they won't ever do bad things to Tarant. If you do this, I'll give you a whole 5000 gold pieces!
195. I knew you were a good person! A brave person! You need to go to Caladon, and kill the King so that they won't want to be a part of the Unified Kingdom! And then they won't ever do bad things to Tarant. If you do this, I'll give you a whole 5000 gold pieces!
196. Wow! Lotta money! I do it! I do it!
197. Uh...I dunno. I think about it...
199. Don't think too long, friend! We need people like you to help! Please, decide soon!
199. Don't think too long, friend! We need people like you to help! Please, decide soon!
202. Splendid! Here's what you need to do. Meet a man named Bullors on the docks in Caladon. He will get you into the castle. Once inside, find a man named Vernon in the kitchens. He will instruct you further.
202. Splendid! Here's what you need to do. Meet a man named Bullors on the docks in Caladon. He will get you into the castle. Once inside, find a man named Vernon in the kitchens. He will instruct you further. Understood?
203. Okay...
205. We won't speak again of this until you've succeeded. Once you have, return to Tarant and meet me in Grant's Tavern. I will wait there every night once I have heard of your exploits. Good luck to you...
205. We won't speak again of this until you've succeeded. Once you have, return to Tarant and meet me in Grant's Tavern. I will wait there every night once I have heard of your exploits. Good luck to you...
208. Ah! I see you've returned, friend! Have you thought about my offer concerning the King Farad?
208. Ah! I see you've returned, friend! Have you thought about my offer concerning the King Farad?
209. What exactly is involved?
210. What exactly is involved?
211. What exactly is involved?
212. What are the terms?
213. I've decided not to get involved. Good day to you, sir...
214. Yes, I've thought about it. I'm going to kill YOU instead, traitor...
215. I need to think about this further. Perhaps I'll return later.
216. Uh...I think I wanna kill King!
217. Uh...I not wanna do it. I go now...
218. I need think more about it...
220. That's a mistake, friend. As I said, every war has its casualties...
220. That's a mistake, friend. As I said, every war has its casualties...
222. Ah, that's a shame, madam. I'm afraid we can leave no loose strings...
222. Ah, that's a shame, sir. I'm afraid we can leave no loose strings...
224. Hello again, my friend. Perhaps you'd like to continue our previous conversation...?
224. Hello again, my friend. Perhaps you'd like to continue our previous conversation...?
225. Yes...you had asked about my conversation with Mr. Willoughsby...
226. You were implying something about Mr. Willoughsby...
227. I think I'd rather not. Good day to you...
229. Yes, but I'm sure he won't mind you asking again for the appointment. With a little more polish, you might be just the man he's looking for...
229. Yes, but I'm sure he won't mind you asking again for the appointment. With a little more polish, you might be just the man he's looking for...
230. I'll look into it. What happens if I'm able to get the appointment?
232. You're a man among men, my friend. I wish you the best of luck...
232. You're a true patriot, madam. I wish you the best of luck...
