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 can me help you?"
Blackthorn: "Who are you?"
Soluga: "I are... um..." the confused man in front of you appears
puzzled, as if he either forgot his name or cannot understand you. "Er... oh!
I be Soluga, father of Ulia."
Blackthorn: "What do you do here?"
Soluga: "I EAT!" he yells excitedly, as he rushes inside his tent and
comes back out with a tasty-looking piece of meat. As he munches ravenously, his
look changes to a funny one, where he stops biting and looks very wierd. "Oh,"
he says, with bits of meat flying all over your face since his mouth is full,
"I be Shaman."
Blackthorn: "Tell me about Ulia."
Soluga: "Ulia be my daughter. She be very good hunter, especially
because I enchanted her spear and made it magic."
Blackthorn: "You enchanted her spear?"
Soluga: "No! Not you enchanted her spear! I enchanted her spear!"
Soluga: The shaman puts the whole slab of meat into his mouth and
begins to explain. "A bwawa grhf..." you cannot understand what he says with
his mouth full. As he starts to swallow his food, you begin to understand
something. "...powerful people thanks to these powers."
Blackthorn: "Um... could you repeat that please?"
Soluga: The lazy old shaman reluctantly repeats. "Duty of Shaman be
to carry out will of Guardian and lead village. Guardian give special powers
of Necromancy to Shamans, but Necromancy be something only for shamans, so you
can not learn it. Shamans be powerful people because of these powers."
Blackthorn: "Tell me about the Guardian."
Soluga: "Guardian be BIIIIIG! More big than me!" He extends his hands
to try and compare the Guardian's might. "Guardian gives us life, and in return,
we offer him our lives! We sacrifice to him."
Blackthorn: "What animals do you sacrifice to him?"
Soluga: "No, no! We do not sacrifice animals! We sacrifice our children
to please him more! Guardian is a superior power, and if he be angry, we can all
die! But Guardian protects us, so we thank him with sacrifice."
Soluga: "What? You want to leave? How you dare?" Soluga gives you
a frightening glare, but you get a little confused as he appears to change his
mind. "Oh, you want to leave. Very well. Bye."
