Dialogues

Introduction (Ranger)

You're a woman of ironclad determination. I can tell. I'm Gwennen. I've got something I fervently believe in as well, but my religion is luck. I've run headlong into danger because it was what I wanted to do, any orders be damned, and I bet it's the same for you. When your actions and beliefs align, you can do anything. Even win at gambling. Which I bet you'll do. Care to try your luck?

Introduction (Templar)

I can recognise a man of faith on any continent. I'm Gwennen. I'm dedicated to a cause, like you, but my religion is luck. I've gotten through deadly situations I had no right surviving simply because I knew I would. I assume it's the same for you and your prayers. This life is what we make of it. I bet I'm going to lose on our transactions, since you're going to pray while you gamble. I don't consider it cheating. I consider it admirable. We'll get on just fine.

Introduction (Witch)

Now that we've a chance to talk without explosives and monsters around us...I'm Gwennen. Luck is my game. But it's no game. It's deadly serious. You have to believe you're going to win, or you won't. That's the nature of this life, understand? It is what you make of it. So when you gamble with me, know that it's your fault if you lose. You just didn't believe hard enough.

Luck (1st version)

During the failed rebellion, I once called out with all my heart. An arrow was arcing through the air. My arm was pinned, and I knew I couldn't get out of the way in time. I was dead woman. But Luck answered my earnest request. Another arrow, also on a murderous path, hit the first in midair, and both were diverted, landing on either side of me instead1 That was the first time I knew that Chance itself was a real force in this world.

Failed Rebellion

I didn't say that. You must have misheard.

Luck (2nd version)

During...an unspecified war...I once called out with all my heart. An arrow was arcing through the air. My arm was pinned, and I knew I couldn't get out of the way in time. I was dead woman. But Luck answered my earnest request. Another arrow, also on a murderous path, hit the first in midair, and both were diverted, landing on either side of me instead! That was the first time I knew that Chance itself was a real force in this world.

Tujen

(Available after the player has discovered Tujen in the wild)

We've campaigned together for many years. It's taken a great toll on him, but he soldiers on. I don't know how he remains so cheery, honestly. If he loses another limb, he'll be more metal than man...

Rog

(Available after the player has discovered Rog in the wild)

He's a sweetheart. Have you seen the figurines he carves? The four of us use them to play this delightfully strange game he came up with. I love it because there are so many dice rolls, and, well, you know me.

This is probably an Easter egg that refers to the real world table top game Dungeons & Dragons.

Dannig

(Available after the player has discovered Dannig in the wild)

Our intrepid leader believes in a world better than the one that truly is. He doesn't see you and me, Exile. He sees heroes. He sees grandiose myths and world-changing bravery. Don't dispel those notions. I want to live in the world he sees, even if I know it isn't real.

Gods

(Trigger after Act 5 Innocence / Kitava)

Never heard of 'gods,' but I know I wouldn't put my faith in them even if they came to my doorstep with an army. I've already solidified my beliefs where they belong.

Druids of the Broken Circle

I am honour-bound to discover the fate of Medved and the Druids of the Broken Circle. They believed they could see into the future by peering into the past. Hypothetically, that's a power I'd very much like to have, for reasons of chance and profit...but I'm not sure I want it to be true. If Medved and his nature-mystics were right and Time truly is a circle, aren't we all doomed to repeat our lives over and over for eternity? If that is the truth, then there is no luck. No chance, no human will. All life is just a stageplay repeating over and over. I don't think I like that notion.

Medved

See also: Medved, Feller of Heroes

His final fate was unknown, but I do know he cast off his peaceful ways and trained with two powerful axes here. We're not fools. We see that the dead rise here in Wraeclast. If Medved is still out there, he'll be extremely dangerous. Conserve your luck, and use it against him if you find him.
