1 I am glad you are here. You were working with Tyron, were you not?
1 I am glad you are here. You were working with Tyron, were you not?
2 Who are you? Where is Tyron?
3 I don't know what you are speaking of.
4 I no remember.
15 I do not know. I was meant to meet him here, we were to exchange information.
15 I do not know. I was meant to meet him here, we were to exchange information.
16 I don't believe you. What have you done with him?
17 Oh, really? And what information would that be?
25 Information that is dangerous to possess. I've been on the same search as Tyron and his colleagues, but I believe I have gone much deeper.

26 What have you discovered?
34 I do not trust you. I am leaving.
35 I should be asking you that. You have recently acquired something...damning to certain parties, have you not?
35 I should be asking you that. You have recently acquired something...damning to certain parties, have you not?
36 Perhaps.
44 No. What makes you think that I have?
45 Ah...I see you are wary. That is smart, as the trail we are following is a dangerous one. [He thinks for a moment.] Very well, I will share with you the information I have gathered, and you can decide for yourself whether to believe me or not. I'm not certain how much of it I believe myself, but this is what I've found out.

46 I'm listening.
54 I have no interest in your stories. Good day.
55 I could be asking you the same thing, barging into his house, uninvited. I have been a colleague of his for quite some time, and he never mentioned you...but I do know who you are, and what you have recently acquired. Something that could be...damning to certain parties, yes?

57 No. What makes you think that I have?
65 So I am to believe you wandered into Mr. Tyron's house by chance? Come now, we both know that is not true. Please, tell me where he is. I was meant to meet him here, we were to exchange...important information.

75 About fifty, fifty five years ago, a group of gnomes from various parts of Arcanum began to acquire large amounts of money from investments in the new technology. As their wealth and perceived influence began to grow, age old prejudices began to surface. Gnomes were thought to be miserly thieves. The other races did not trust them to gain power.

76 Go on.
77 Tell me more story.
85 There were thefts, beatings and threats. Mysterious letters in the night, warning the "little gnomes" to keep to their place. The gnomes tried human bodyguards, to no avail. Any human that would be a bodyguard to a gnome at that time was, by definition, an untrustworthy, shiftless sort. At first they tried, unsuccessfully, to breed elves and orcs into some bestial magic hybrid to do their bidding...

86 The Siamese twins.
87 Hurghle.
95 The next obvious choice seemed to be the half ogres. Tired of being hunted, and the promise of large amounts of food gained the gnomes extremely loyal bodyguards. But there was a problem. An half ogre was a very rare thing in those days, and with good scientific reasons for being so. And the gnomes without bodyguards were used as leverage against those protected.

96 Please, continue.
97 You tell more story.
105 The greatest concentration of these gnomes were in Tarant, which was still a monarchy at the time. They pleaded with the king for his help, but the last thing the king wanted was a group of rich banker gnomes with power in his kingdom. The beatings continued, and the king and his court turned a blind eye to their plight. That was when, well, let's call him Mr. X, decided to act.

106 Mr. X?
107 MissurX?
115 Yes. He hired a prostitute to go home with him one evening, and he locked her in his basement, where he also happened to be keeping a full blooded ogre. You can imagine what happened then. She died giving birth, as was to be expected, but Mr. X now had his future bodyguard. He recruited some other gnomes, and the kidnappings began in earnest.

116 What happened then?
117 What den?
125 For safety's sake, they set up a "breeding laboratory" on the island you visited. Their plan wasn't working out as well as they had hoped, as the women all died giving birth. And the more prostitutes that disappeared, the more the authorities were looking into their affairs. They decided to try surgical means of delivery, but the women were too sickly to survive that.

126 Go on.
127 Tell me more story.
135 This is when the king's hirelings discovered what was happening. Unfortunately for the king, though, the gnomes had become incredibly rich in this time, rich enough, in fact, to purchase the king's murder, and the kidnapping of the queen and her young son. Rumors began circulating immediately, pointing to the queen as the killer of her husband.

136 The queen was brought to the island, wasn't she?
137 The queen brung to island?
145 Yes, she was the patient in the first successful operation. She mothered three before she passed, I believe. Soon after the Industrial Council gained power in Tarant, the disappearances of prostitutes began to slow down, but a mysterious rash of disappearances of the wives and daughters of the political enemies of the council began.

146 That is horrible!
147 That real bad.
155 They only lasted for a short time, however, as they had now bred enough half ogre females to no longer need to rely on human breeders. They have hundreds of them now, kept in cages on a breeding farm, somewhere. They keep this whole thing in a cloud of mystery by releasing half truths, lies, and even real information through unstable individuals like Tyron.

156 So no one believes any of it...
157 No one believe it.
165 Exactly. Everyone believes it to be the imaginings of madmen and paranoids.
165 Exactly. Everyone believes it to be the imaginings of madmen and paranoids.
166 Is this all true?
167 This be true?
175 That's a good question. We must not be too anxious to believe it because we want it to be true, or too anxious to disbelieve it because we want it to be false. We must remain neutral in our decision as to whether it is true or not.

176 What? That's absurd! It is either true or it isn't!
177 Huh?
185 Hmmm. Then none of it is true. Well, maybe some of it.
185 Hmmm. Then none of it is true. Well, maybe some of it.
186 I'll bring proof to the press! I'll expose this whole thing.
187 I brought proof to the press. This whole thing will be exposed!
188 Nuh uh. I tell everyone!
189 Nuh uh. I tell newspaper guy!
195 What do you have? Nothing! You have a "journal" that was left for you to find on purpose, which could have been written last week. What have you seen? Why, I believe you saw an abandoned warehouse, nothing more, save what your twisted imagination made it out to be.

196 Why are you doing this?
197 I confused.
198 I have heard enough. I will now vent my frustration by killing you.
199 I kill silly fast talk stupid guy.
205 We always need more "converts" to spread the word. You might have had real information, but now you don't know anything. What have I told you that is real? Feel free to tell anyone everything I have told you. I am sure the press would love to hear your story. Perhaps. Good day to you, sir, it has been a pleasure.

206 My pleasure has not yet begun. It involves your excruciating pain!
207 Me kill you!
210 Oh, did you? Are you certain of that? I don't think you did, regardless of what you remember. Memory is like that, always playing tricks on us. For instance, I don't even believe the fellow you spoke with worked for the newspaper, but I could be wrong.

225 Of course. But please, be careful. As I said, we are on a dangerous path.

226 Hmm. Alright, what is your story?
227 What do you mean, "a dangerous path"?
234 Thank you for the warning. Good day.
245 Yes, what is it?
245 Yes, what is it?
246 What were you saying about a dangerous path?
247 Please, tell me what information you have uncovered.
250 I have returned to kill you, treacherous dog!
251 I kill silly fast talk stupid guy.
255 Exactly. But you know all about what happened with them, now, don't you? It was a foolhardy idea to begin with, at any rate. Orcs have a natural dislike for gnomes, and the gnomes needed something much more docile.

It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them
