Soluga's dialogue v. 1.0
Information about Soluga
This is just some information about Soluga, taken from anywhere.
It is here just for reference.
From Blackthorn forums:
From "The Solari people" thread:
This is the Solari Shaman. He is in his mid age, around 50 years. He wears
decorative human bones around his neck, has a feather hat, and is fat. The
Guardian bestows certain powers on the Shaman so they are very powerful foes if
provoked. Arrogant, they reek of terror and destruction, they are the human
slaves of the Guardian and their soul and their will follows the destructive
and manupilative nature of the Guardian. He wears a wolf made leather hide
around him. Pro Guardian
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.
You see a man of authority. The few grey hairs that appear from under his
feathered hat show that he is middle-aged. The leather hide that barely
fits his oversized body appears to be made of wolf skin, and the decorative
bones around his neck appear to be human.
Soluga: A deep, harsh voice rings in your ears as he answers you.
"Welcome, Blackthorn. How may I help you?"
Blackthorn: "Who are you?"
Soluga: "I," he says, hitting himself on the chest, "am Soluga, the
father of Ulia."
Blackthorn: "What do you do here?"
Soluga: "I am the Shaman here." he shows you his necklace, which
apparently is a symbol of the shamans.
Blackthorn: "Tell me about Ulia."
Soluga: "Ulia is my daughter. She is a very good huntress, especially
because I enchanted her spear and made it magical."
Blackthorn: "How did you enchant her spear?"
Soluga: Soluga looks down at you with an air of mental superiority.
"It is useless that I explain it, because you would not understand."
Soluga: "It is my duty, as is the duty of any other Shaman, to carry
out the will of the Guardian and to run the village in its day-to-day affairs
and decisions." His intelligent-sounding tone of voice sounds quite boring.
"And as any other Shaman, I can make use of special Necromantic powers conferred
to me by the Guardian."
Blackthorn: "Necromantic powers?"
Soluga: "Yes," he snaps back, apparently not wanting to share
information about it, "but Necromancy is not something for any villager. It is
a power given by the Guardian himself, which requires lots of time and practice."
Blackthorn: "Tell me about the Guardian."
Soluga: "The Guardian is mighty beyond any Shaman, in fact it is
he that channels our Necromantic powers. We owe him all our respect, and you had
better get that into your head quickly if you have not done so already, or you
will be seeking trouble!"
Blackthorn: "Tell me more about Necromancy."
Soluga: He folds his huge arms and looks disinterested. "You would
not understand if I told you, but since you insist, maybe I will tell you
something of it." He pauses for a moment, then starts. "Necromancy is a type
of magic channeled through the Guardian himself, as I said before, so only the
ones he chooses can cast Necromantic spells. He only allows Shamans to use his
Soluga: "We will meet again, Blackthorn."
Dialogue of when the Ubi are attacking
Blackthorn: "Um... Shaman..."
Soluga: "You should not be around here in such a moment! Ulia will
assign the formations to defend ourselves from the Ubi shortly, so you should
go to the village center. There is no time for questions. Go now!"
