Alamango's dialogue v. 2.2

CONTENTS

Information about Alamango

This is just some information about Alamango, taken from anywhere. It is here just for reference.

From Blackthorn forums:

Male Hunter, very attracted to Ulia but at the same time resents her for the way she treats him. Well built,young, dark skin and kind at heart. He really is the main hunter for the village but Ulia takes credit for a lot of his kills and he canít do much about it. Dressed in tribal warrior clothes. Spear is his weapon of choice. His views are somewhat flexible when it comes to the Guardian

Notes

These are notes on the format of the dialogue, read carefully to be able to understand the dialogue.

Each dialogue piece, which includes speech for Blackthorn and the NPC, is labelled with a keyword. Most of these keywords come from keywords chosen from previous dialogue pieces. When Blackthorn chooses a keyword as a dialogue option, he will say a full sentence, which you will see where the keyword links to. The destination keywords are not to feature in the game.

The dialogues said by Blackthorn and the NPC are marked with their name, though that won't feature in the game.

Another thing of note is that dialogue pieces borrow some dialogue options from previous dialogue pieces. I have listed all the possible dialogue options for each dialogue piece, and I have marked new dialogue options with an asterisk (*). Those dialogue options marked with an asterisk start off in the dialogue piece in which they are marked. Dialogue options that were already selected should be omitted when implementing the dialogue into the toolset. You should not be able to choose dialogue options you've already chosen before.

An action apart from the dialogue, such as ending a conversation or giving an item, is marked in red.

Opening Dialogue

opening
Before you is a strong and very muscular dark young man dressed in old tribal warrior clothes. His sparkling blue eyes greet you in a friendly way.
Blackthorn: "Greetings."
Alamango: "Well met Blackthorn, word of your arrival has reached me." He grabs your wrist in a rather unusual handshake. "How may I help you?"

job
Blackthorn: "What do you do for a living?"
Alamango: "I am a hunter here. I often go hunting with Ulia, and we both hunt with a spear," he sighs as if pleased about having such a small thing in common, "though she has a considerable advantage over me since her spear is enchanted."

spear
Blackthorn: "Why do you like using a spear?"
Alamango: Alamango goes inside his hut and returns with a grand spear, tall as a hut and sharp as a dragon's tooth. "You see," he shows you the wide diameter, "with a spear, if you have the right strength, you can make a larger hole in a person or beast than with something like an arrow. All depends on physical strength. And besides, a spear is good even in melee combat since you may easily attack and parry blows with a sturdy spear."

Ulia
Blackthorn: "You hunt with Ulia?"
Alamango: "Yes, I must say it is a pleasure." Alamango blushes slightly, and continues, "Well, it is certainly an honour to hunt with the princess." Alamango feels he cannot hide his feelings any more and decides to share them with you. "Well, really, I feel that she is very attractive. However, I doubt whether she reciprocates, seeing the way she treats me. I really cannot understand why she treats me like that."

treats
Blackthorn: "How does Ulia treat you?"
Alamango: He leans over to whisper. "Now do not go and tell her what I am telling you! Keep this between us. While she is not exactly cruel with me, she ignores me when I try to be nice to her, and refuses to go for walks with me. It is rather irritating.

Blackthorn: "Ulia told me I could ask you for information on the Solari tribe."

people
Blackthorn: "Tell me about the Solari people."
Alamango: "We of the Solari tribe are a small but united people. Our leader is Soluga, the Shaman of our village, and his daughter is Ulia. Ulia is the princess, and probably the best huntress around." He pauses for a moment and strokes his chin while thinking what else to tell you. "Aljabo is the assistant shaman here. I believe he will be the future shaman once Soluga leaves us," as he says that, a sad look goes over his face, but he soon recovers, "and he appears quite suited for the job, seeing that he can heal very well, though the people here do not take him seriously at all.
Fighter: A passing fighter hears the last bit, and decides to say his own version. "Because he is not serious at all! Hah! He can only heal, and cannot even defend himself!" With that, the fighter continues on his way.
Alamango: "Well, I think being able to heal is a good quality for a shaman. Another of my hunting companions is Ulichika, he appears to prefer the dexterity of archery to the might of the spear. He is excellent at is as well, and there is no one that can match his skill. And how may I forget the great Malachai? He is an excellent fighter, in fact he had killed six Ubi attackers all by himself! Well, those are the major authorities here."

ways
Blackthorn: "I would like to know about the ways of the Solari."
Alamango: "Many of us here follow the Guardian, and we fight the Ubi to win his favor, as has been done for generations. However, there are some of us that do not like the Guardian very much. This is mainly because of the relatives lost due to sacrifice to him."
He leans over to give you some friendly advice. "However, I would advise you to stay away from such people and such thoughts, as they can only mean trouble."

guardian
Blackthorn: "Tell me of the Guardian."
Alamango: Alamango looks a little tense and nervous. "The people here all have different opinions about the Guardian. Whoever you ask will give you a different version of who that person thinks the Guardian is."
Blackthorn: "What is your view?"
Alamango: "My opinion is irrelevant. Whatever anyone here may think, we must follow the Guardian. Otherwise, the Guardian might get angry, and that means big trouble."
Guardian: A chill passes through your bones as you hear something, barely audible amidst the frighteningly fast beat of your heart. It sounds like "Indeed."

tribes
Blackthorn: "Tell me about the other tribes and their business with the Solari."
Alamango: "Well, we deal a lot with the Khilari and the Ubi. We fight the Ubi a lot, as we have done for generations, for the Guardian's favor. On the other hand, the town of Khilari is a good place for commerce, and we trade pacifically there. We hardly deal with any other people in Narcoss, which is the world in which you are now." He makes a swooping gesture to signify the entire world.

Ubi
Blackthorn: "Tell me about the Ubi."
Alamango: "The Ubi are our rivals towards the Guardian's favour. The futile war that has raged so far has all been because of that." He pauses to commemorate his friends that have been lost because of the Guardian and the Ubi. "This war has been going for generations. I do not think that it will ever stop, though I do think that both tribes have some of the blame for what is happening. The Solari have accused the Ubi just as the Ubi have accused the Solari, though many of the raids were started by the Ubi. They refuse to get down to the bargaining table and find an agreement. Of course, we are forced to defend ourselves."

Khilari
Blackthorn: "So Khilari is a commercial village?"
Alamango: He shakes his head. "No, it is a town. It is far bigger than the Solari or Ubi villages, and is a great centre for commerce in these areas. Both Ubi and Solari must not cause trouble there, or both can be hanged."
Blackthorn: "It is a neutral town then."
Alamango: "Yes. In the Khilari town, the Solari can trade with the Ubi, as well as with the Khilari."
Blackthorn: "How do you know so much?"
Alamango: Alamango gives off a small laugh. "Well, I have been there. It is also a great place of learning, for I have met some very knowledgable people in the few times when I visited there. Do not ask to me tell you who, as I cannot recall the names.
