Dialogue[править]

Open World[править]

Taimi: Commander, do you read me? Only answer if you're ready to be blown away!
Taimi: Never mind. I can't wait! I finished my dragon machine! I'm about to perform the final tests!
Taimi: So I'm kindly requesting the honor of your presence so you can be AMAZED AND FLABBERGASTED BY MY STAGGERING GENIUS! See ya soon!

In the instance[править]

Entering the laboratory:

<Character name>: Kas! Didn't expect to see you here, popping in like that.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Hi, Commander. I have a bone to pick with you...
<Character name>: Before I get an earful, I told Marjory it was a terrible idea.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Marjory's her own person. If anyone knows that...
<Character name>: A refreshing dose of rationality. I missed you.
<Character name>: So. This bone that needs picking...
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Did my invite to Dragon's Watch get lost in the mail?
<Character name>: Well, there was the matter of the bloodstone exploding... And Lazarus...
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Flimsy excuses. But...I'm in. If you'll have me.
<Character name>: Absolutely. Have you heard from Marjory?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: No. But she'll check in when she can. She always does.
<Character name>: Why do you think she went with him in the first place?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Who knows what goes on in that beautiful head of hers?
<Character name>: Hm. Looks like Taimi's just about ready!
Worker: Watch it! Watch it! She's rearing up!
Worker: I told you this was a three-asura job!
Worker: She's loose! It's going to be a two-asura funeral!
Taimi: Watch it! Dragon minions liberated! They're all out!

Various comments by the numerous asura workers in the area

Worker: On my way.
Worker: En route!
Worker: On it, boss!
Researcher: Roger.
Worker: Time to end this!
Taimi: Keep 'em alive if you can! I need them for the test!
Taimi: You don't have to beat their faces in! Just get them back in their positions!

Once the dragon minions have all been contained:

Worker: Much appreciated, stranger!
Worker: Stranger? That's the commander, you dolt!
Worker: Sorry. I don't have my deck of "Heroes of Tyria" flash cards handy.

Speaking to Taimi:

Taimi: Hi! Hi! Thanks for the help. How do you like my new toy?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Taimi, this is amazing. I think. What's it do?
Taimi: I don't want to get too technical on you, so: machine make dragons go (death sound).

(Taimi flops down on her behind)

Lady Kasmeer Meade: I think I can handle a bit more detail.
Taimi: Great! First, that quarter-inch unit there is a thermogulator. Thermog coming from the asura root word for—
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Little less.
Taimi: Ah. Okay, it runs off the heart of Omadd's Machine.
Taimi: That, combined with my spectrum research, aided by my assistant, Spencer...
Taimi: Will let me manipulate the Eternal Alchemy to smash Primordus and Jormag's unique signatures together.
Taimi: Thus, cancelling them out. I.E. dragons go (death sound).
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Remarkable.
Taimi: Isn't it? For the experiment, I've brought minions from the dragons to see if I can do it on a micro scale.
Taimi: You just met them.
<Character name>: When do we get to see it in action?
Taimi: As soon as I can convince these other asura to leave. I'm not exactly sure what'll happen when I kick it on.
Taimi: It'll likely work as intended, but could also blow this place sky high.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Let's clear the area, then.
Taimi: Well, there's a problem with that...
Councillor Phlunt: Hello, progeny. And how are we ruining science today?
Taimi: You know, one of these days you'll admit how valuable I am. You'll see!
Councillor Phlunt: Improbable. This thing is looking less and less like a "coolerator" and more and more like...
Councillor Phlunt: Like...a monstrosity designed to go down in the annals of failed inventions!
Taimi: Councillor Phlunt, I assure you, it will revolutionize elixir-cooling technology! I mean, who wants tepid elixirs?
Taimi: So, if you'll kindly remove yourself and your flunkies, er, assistants from my lab...
Councillor Phlunt: To enable you to freely plunder all the research we leave behind? I think not!
Taimi: Uh, Commander. Maybe you could reason with (punch) the esteemed (not esteemed) councillor here?

Speaking to Councillor Phlunt:

Councillor Phlunt: Doing Taimi's dirty work for her, huh? Out with it!
Ferocity
The dirty work'll be scraping your pieces off the walls if you don't leave.
Your brash assaults will get you nowhere.
Talk end option tango.png
Grrrr.
Councillor Phlunt: Your elementary attempts at persuasion sadden me. No wonder you were kicked out of the Pact. (Phlunt leaves)
Charisma
Merely trying to help out a friend. You should try it sometime. By leaving. (Same response as ferocity above)
Dignity
The situation is dangerous. Consider it: evacuation is the wisest route.
On the contrary; protecting my research at any cost is the wisest route!
Dignity
But wouldn't you say that Taimi is an untested talent?
Untested is a polite way to say it. She's reckless and clearly second fiddle in the realm of intellect. Maybe even third or fourth!
Ferocity
A fine point from the first fiddle. Move out, before I de-string you.
Please. I'm very busy and you're bothering me. And your breath is quite objectionable.
Councillor Phlunt: Your elementary attempts at persuasion sadden me. No wonder you were kicked out of the Pact. (Phlunt leaves)
Talk end option tango.png
Grrr.
Dignity
Don't you agree that the likelihood of her destroying the lab is very high?
Hmmm. You're smarter than you look. And you look awful. Take this passcode. When the time is right, have those golems carry my inverse magniscope upstairs.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks?
Councillor Phlunt: Okay, everyone, secure your research and start heading through the gate!
Councillor Phlunt: Field experiments for the rest of the day! Don't forget your antichak armaments! (Phlunt leaves)
Charisma
There's something I want to show you outside. (Same response as ferocity above)
Charisma
And what masterful research it is! The outside world needs your brilliance!
Nice try, genius.
Talk end option tango.png
Grrr.
Councillor Phlunt: Your elementary attempts at persuasion sadden me. No wonder you were kicked out of the Pact. (Phlunt leaves)
Ferocity
The cost will be your face. (Same response as charisma above)

Various chatter from the asura in the portal area:

Worker: What's going on?
Worker: Are we in danger?
Worker: I have to leave my research behind? What?
Worker: What's happening?
Worker: What's Taimi done now?
Researcher: Did I hear them mention a Lazarus? Wasn't that the name of a mursaat?

Talking to Marjory:

Marjory Delaqua: Commander!
<Character name>: You made it!
Marjory Delaqua: Barely. Hi, Kas. My leaving didn't go unnoticed. He's probably only a few minutes behind me.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Lazarus, or whoever, is coming here? What should we... How should we prepare?
<Character name>: Did you get any intel while you were with him?
Marjory Delaqua: Plenty—he's raising an army of hired mercenaries. He has a base being built in the Fire Islands.
Marjory Delaqua: All under the guise of battling dragons, but...nothing that seems relevant to a personal weakness.
Marjory Delaqua: Although...there was a mirror, like a hand mirror, he kept very close.
Marjory Delaqua: I wanted a better look at it, but it never left his side.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Maybe that's what he's using to disguise himself. Mirrors have a long history with mesmer illusions.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: If we break the illusion, at the very least we'll know who we're dealing with.
Marjory Delaqua: How?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Magic mirrors don't like their own reflections; it runs counter to their spells.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: If we can catch him in a few enchanted mirrors of our own, it might shatter the illusion.
Taimi: And if it doesn't?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: He'll get to see himself murder us from various different angles?
Taimi: You pick now to get a sense of humor?
Taimi: I like it! I set up reflector disks around the lab to get the lighting just right to record my historic experiment. We could use those as mirrors!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: I'll enchant them. Once the illusion is broken, I can tie him up tight with magic.
Taimi: Commander, you grab 'em and position them in the right places. There, there, and there should work. We'll work on getting these folks out of here.

Personal conversation between Marjory and Kasmeer:

Marjory Delaqua: How've you been? I heard you missed the fun in Divinity's Reach...
Lady Kasmeer Meade: The countess had me observing interrogations, ministers and White Mantle, detecting lies.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: So...Camp Lazarus. Did you find what you were looking for?
Marjory Delaqua: We made friendship bracelets!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: You'll note I'm not laughing.
Marjory Delaqua: Is that because it was a bad joke, or... Okay, I... I wasn't looking for anything in particular... I just—
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Next time maybe consult your girlfriend before throwing yourself in the lion's den.
Marjory Delaqua: The commander tried to stop me too. Didn't work out so well.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: This isn't about permission. You're your own person. But you're also on a team.
Marjory Delaqua: Dragon's Watch got along just fine without me.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: I was talking about the team you and I are on.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Maybe I would have gone with you, maybe I would have stayed. But I never got to make that choice.
Marjory Delaqua: Look, I get it, but an opportunity like that... You don't just say "hold on a second" and write a mail.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Taimi has communicators.
Marjory Delaqua: You know what I mean.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: (sigh) I'm glad you're back, though.
Marjory Delaqua: Me too.

After mounting the third Holorecorder Mirror:

<Character name>: Taimi. Done! Now what?
Taimi: We just need to...
Councillor Phlunt: Progeny! What did your defective machine do to the gate? It's broken!
Taimi: It's not my— What do you mean? The gate's down?
Councillor Phlunt: Am I not being clear? We couldn't leave if we wanted to or not!
Marjory Delaqua: He's trapped us here.
<Character name>: Taimi, we have to get these people out to safety.
Taimi: But there's no other way ou— You don't mean...? You DO mean... But... (sigh) Fine. Open it. There's a hidden panel right there.
Taimi: The password is our new dragon friend's name.

After entering the password:

Taimi: Oh my gosh! What's happening? There's a whole lab back here with a functioning gate!
Taimi: Everyone go through it! But don't look around too much on your way!
Councillor Phlunt: PROGENY!
Taimi: I'm as surprised as you! Who knew the commander had a secret lab!
Taimi: But importantly: mortal danger. You gotta go. A mursaat/no-a-mursaat, on the way...
Councillor Phlunt: Oh, yes! Surely you're telling the truth now! I'm certainly not leaving! No one is! I mean it. Wyndall, put that down.
Lazarus: Ah, Marjory, there you are. I'd grown used to your ever-so-pleasant company.
Councillor Phlunt: Actually, I could use a stretch. Let's go, everyone!
Worker: I can't believe I didn't notice that was a door.

Talking to Lazarus:

<Character name>: Lazarus, I don't recall inviting you here. I suggest you leave.
Lazarus: But my friends and I just arrived.
<Character name>: Through a gate that was moments ago not letting anyone out...
Lazarus: I'd heard there was a machine here. A machine that could kill two Elder Dragons with one blow.
Lazarus: I just had to see it for myself. And, I was a little disappointed you didn't let me know about it.
Lazarus: In the name of camaraderie and strategic alignment.
<Character name>: You're right. Be my guest. It's right over there.
Taimi: Commander! (Oh, yeah.)
Lazarus: AH! What is this?
<Character name>: I know you're an imposter! Show yourself!
Lazarus: Fools! Destroy the mirrors!
Lazarus: ARRRRGH!
<Character name>: The charade ends here!
Taimi: Lazarus's illusions broke our mirrors. So many years of bad luck! Get rid of them, and I'll call my repair drones.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: I can't cage him until the illusion is broken! He needs to be reflected in all three!
Taimi: Got a crazy idea: let's see how he likes some minions on his heels!
Taimi: Drones primed! Let's get those mirrors back up ASAP!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: Lure him back to where he's reflected in all the mirrors at once!
Lazarus: ARRRRGH!
Lazarus: Enough of this!

Lazarus moves towards the machine: (cinematic)

Kasmeer Meade: The illusion is broken! Now I can...
Kasmeer Meade: (gasp) Balthazar!
Balthazar: I will have this machine.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: He's...one of the Six! (hic)
Balthazar: And you will burn.
Marjory Delaqua: Uggh!
Balthazar: Starting with you, my bothersome shadow!
Taimi: Marjory!
Lady Kasmeer Meade: No!
Balthazar: See that no one lives. This tires me, and the dragons call.
<Character name>: Get Marjory some help! I'll hold them off as long as I can.
Taimi: Okay, but...so many of them... Commander, maybe it's time to retreat?
Councillor Phlunt: No one retreats while Phlunt still phights! You can't aurally hear what I did, but it's very clever!
Taimi: He came back? You came back! You DO value me!
Councillor Phlunt: All hands, SAVE MY RESEARCH!
Taimi: Well... I walked into that.
Councillor Phlunt: Front lines, form a body shield around my experiment station!
Councillor Phlunt: Sacrifice yourself for superior knowledge! Everyone else in first—I'll bring up the rear.

Once the fight is finished:

Taimi: That looks like all of them. Lab's clear.

After talking to Marjory:

Lady Kasmeer Meade: Jory... Is she okay? (hic)
Medic: This human is stabilized. She'll likely survive. I suppose.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: I'm sorry. I froze. It was Balthazar. The god... (hic)
Marjory Delaqua: You...
Medic: Ah! Heart-rate spike! This situation is stressing the human. Please vacate. Shoo!
Taimi: The medics will take care of her. She probably just needs to be... Maybe...maybe we just go over here for a second?

After talking to Taimi:

Lady Kasmeer Meade: I hesitated... I—
Taimi: Could it really be Balthazar?
Lady Kasmeer Meade: It is. He dropped the lie. (hic)
Lady Kasmeer Meade: And his mirror. It was special—enchanted by Lyssa herself.
Taimi: And now he has my machine! What are your gods doing, Kasmeer?
<Character name>: To what end, I don't know, but we can't just allow it—we have to stop him.
Lady Kasmeer Meade: I'm sorry. I can't do this. I'll... I'm sorry, Commander. Tell Marjory... (hic) I love her.
Taimi: Okay, bye, I guess... This is beyond crazy. To recap, you picked a fight with a god. The God of War.
<Character name>: Thanks, Taimi.
Taimi: Why do you think... What should we do now?
<Character name>: The deception, the lies, the willingness to kill to get what he wants.
<Character name>: God or not, my instincts say whatever he's up to can't be beneficial.
Taimi: Marjory mentioned a base on Fire Islands. If he wants to absorb a dragon's power, that'd be the place to do it.
Taimi: Right on top of Primordus. And, if I remember correctly, he's also the God of Fire, so... Primordus over Jormag.
<Character name>: Then that's where I start.
Taimi: Thankfully, I put a tracker on my machine to prevent "Phlunting."
Taimi: I'll send an assistant to help you find it. Head to Rata Sum. I'll line up transportation from there to the islands.
Taimi: While you do that, I'm going to lock myself in the simulation room to run a test on a new theory I want to investigate.
<Character name>: And avoid Phlunt?
Taimi: Always. Stay safe, Commander! This is uncharted ground. I'll be in touch!

Entering the Dragon Lab:

Worker: What just happened?
Worker: I think that was one of the Mist beings worshiped by humans. Maybe?
Researcher: Balthazar, God of War. I did my Racial Studies thesis on him. Never thought I'd get a chance to see him!
Worker: He took Taimi's device. What's she going to do now?
Worker: I'm just glad we survived the encounter.

Speaking to Councillor Phlunt in the Dragon Lab:

Councillor Phlunt: Astounding! It never ceases to amaze me how that annoying little genius manages to put one over on me. Your lab, indeed. Does she think I'm stupid as well as blind?
Talk end option tango.png
She has many word she uses to describe you.

My story[править]

Файл:Taimi's Pet Project loading screen.jpg

Taimi completed yet another magical device, so a trip to Rata Novus was in my cards. Marjory joined Kasmeer, Taimi, and me; and she brought a warning that Lazarus was on his way. Our plan to reveal his true identity involves the mirrors around the lab, so when he showed up with his new goons, we were ready. We were successful. My mind is reeling! Balthazar!

Notes[править]

  • Standing inside the confinement area will kick out the character from the force field once it gets activated.

Trivia[править]

  • Once the dragon minions have all been subdued, they are lured back into the confinement areas with "holographic bait" in the form of a pig.
