Ulia's dialogue v. 4.0

CONTENTS

Information about Ulia

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

From "The Solari People" thread:

Female hunter, extremely well built, young and very desirable. Young men of the town show her much favor but she shows no favor. She is the daughter of Soluga and she cannot become a Shaman so she chose this profession. She is extremely arrogant, knows that her status as Shaman’s only daughter and her youth combined with her good looks makes her extremely desirable. She will become one of the biggest thorns in BTs quest and will constantly offer him a challenge as he tries to move on with his quests. She will create obstacles around him and he will have to coolly deal with them. She always carries a magical spear in her hand enchanted by her father. She wears a tight leather skin around her. Knowledgeable in the art of witchcraft. Pro Guardian

From "keyplayers.htm" email attachment:

This is not just one pretty girl. She is a very conniving individual, who knows how to get what she wants. Since puberty she has been fascinated with the Guardian and the Guardian saw a real potential in her as he knew of her resourceful nature. In the game, one of the things that will happen is that BT will come across a very nice, pleasant character called Alamango, who will even join BT in his team. At one point of the game, BT will loose all his companions and later in the game he will go head to head with Ulia. BT will be surprised to see that nice man Alamango assisting Ulia and attacking BT. But the manipulative and seductive power that Ulia will have over Alamango (knowing that Al wants her real bad, she will manipulate him with empty promises) he will do whatever she asks of him.

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
You see a beautiful young woman, built better than the men of the village. A tight leather skin adorns her body, and her hand holds a spear pulsating with magic.
Blackthorn: "Greetings m'lady."
Ulia: You recognize this woman from your meeting with the Guardian. "Aljabo did a good job in healing you. Welcome, Blackthorn, to the Solari tribe. This is my home. It will be yours too, but be sure to follow the will of the Guardian, or things might change."

spear
Blackthorn: "What a nice spear."
Ulia: Ulia's vanity shows on the expression on her face. "I know, it is nearly as nice as I am." She smiles proudly, and continues, "You know, my father Soluga enchanted it himself." She swings the spear around with great agility and skill, and puts it against your neck. "Follow the way of the Guardian and I will not have to use it against you." As she withdraws the spear, you think it is wise not to irritate her.

Blackthorn: "You are a huntress?"
Ulia: "Yes," she retorts with an angry look on her face, "have you never seen a woman that hunts?" She lifts her glowing spear and stares at it with pride. "You know, I am the best huntress here. No one can kill as well as I do, no one!"

Blackthorn: "Tell me about the tribe."
Ulia: "You are currently in the Solari tribe, where my father Soluga rules as shaman. I am the princess here." She points to herself as if to indicate her authority. "The Solari tribe has clashes with the Ubi tribe from time to time, though we usually win."

Blackthorn: "What are these 'pastimes'?
Ulia: The pretty young face looks threatening. "I already told you that it is none of your business!" She starts to lift her spear, but then hesitates. A smile of mockery washes over her face. "If it interests you so much, why do you not try and ask Baldun?"

Blackthorn: "Who is Baldun?"
Ulia: An evil smile wraps around her mouth. "Look around... if you see a madman jesting, then you know he is your man." She puts on an air of innocence. "Who knows why the poor fellow is so jocular." Her evil smile evolves into a grin.

Ubi
Blackthorn: "Who are the Ubi?"
Ulia: Ulia sulks at the thought. "The Ubi are our rivals. We both compete to please the Guardian. We have disliked each other for generations, but lately they have made shallow accusations on us."

accusations
Blackthorn: "What accusations?"
Ulia: Ulia now clenches a fist strongly and looks extremely serious. "They question my father's manhood, they question our chief Shaman's integrity by claiming that he had not fathered a son. Little do those fools know that I am far more capable a sorceress, warrior and leader than that worthless Dinallo will ever be!"
Blackthorn: "Who is Dinallo?"
Ulia: "Dinallo is the Ubi Shaman's son." she says to the wind, as if in pity. "I think he is far better at tending to pigs than leading a tribe."

Guardian
Blackthorn: "What can you tell me about the Guardian?"
Ulia: "He is your master and lord and you should never forget it." She makes her point with a pointed finger that forces you a couple of steps back. "He is the Guardian, he protects and nurtures us. Our sacred trust was broken eons ago by an outsider like yourself. For this reason the Guardian takes outsiders very seriously. Walk in his shadow and you will be amply rewarded."

bye
Blackthorn: "Goodbye, milady."
Ulia: "Follow the way of the Guardian and avoid trouble within the Solari tribe." She makes a dismissing wave with her hand, the same wave that may tell you to go away on other occasions.
(The following must only appear the first time)
"Oh, I was nearly about to forget. Seek out Alamango, he knows a lot about the tribe and other things you might want to know, and he can certainly answer more of your questions than me.

Ulia looks very aggressive, and ready for a fight.
Blackthorn: "Hello Ulia."
Ulia: "What do you want in such a moment? A fight is ahead!"

END CONVERSATION

Dialogue of organizing teams to counterstrike the Ubi

opening
As the village bell tolls in alarm, everybody gathers in the village center in a crowd. Ulia stands upon a rock to speak to the whole village.
Ulia: "Solari people! You probably already know that the Ubi are attacking. They are threatening our peaceful lives, and we must defend ourselves! I will assign the defence formations." A moment of silence follows, and then she starts. "Malachai will lead the full frontal formation, which will consist of melee fighters that will go out to attack the raiders. Alamango, Blackthorn, Zagoah and Zaldeb will follow Malachai. Can we count on you too, Blackthorn?" The whole crowd looks at you, waiting anxiously for your reply.
Choice:
yes
no
lead

yes
Blackthorn: "Very well, I am coming."
Ulia: "Good, I am glad you are a valorous one, Blackthorn." She lifts her look from you and puts it on the other villagers. "The full defense formation, who will be ranged warriors that will defend out tribe from afar, will be led by Ulichika. Binti, Ilchak, Limkar and Ranwil will all follow Ulichika." She then looks at another part of the crowd. "We magic-users are the magicians' formation, which I will lead myself. Aljabo, Baldog and Helia, follow me!" Ulia descends from her high point and makes her way to her position.
END CONVERSATION
NEXT SCENE: ATTACKING THE UBI

no
Blackthorn: "I would not like to come."
Ulia: Ulia glares at you furiously. "If you will live with us and share our food and shelter, Blackthorn, then you must help us fight off the invaders. If you will not, then you will be exiled from the Solari tribe." The crowd makes lots of noise, and turns into an angry mob. The villagers put their hands on you and carry you out. "You have made your choice, and cannot turn back now."
END CONVERSATION
NEXT SCENE: ALONE, OUTSIDE THE VILLAGE

lead
Blackthorn: "Can I lead the full frontal team?" The crowd focuses on you and you feel the numerous eyes pressuring on you. "I once led my homeland, and perhaps I would do well to lead your own to victory."
Ulia: "I have not seen you on the battlefield save in our previous encounter, and cannot determine your worth in battle. I think Malachai is better at leading and fighting than you."
Malachai: "Sure I am, and I will prove it!"
MALACHAI ATTACKS BLACKTHORN
WHEN BLACKTHORN IS AT 35% OF HIS HEALTH...
Malachai: "Never question my authority again, boy! Now come."
