Background

In the depths of Hellgate there is a library with an NPC called "A Wrinkled Beholder". All the books in the library are written in a language called "469" which consists entirely of numbers. The beholder says the following in response to various keywords:


Player: hi
a wrinkled beholder: What is this? An optically challenged entity called Player. How fascinating!

Player: death
a wrinkled beholder: Yes, yes, I will kill you soon enough, now let me continue my investigation on you.

Player: god
a wrinkled beholder: They will mourn the day they abandoned us.

Player: job
a wrinkled beholder: I am the great librarian.

Player: library
a wrinkled beholder: It's a fine library, isn't it?

Player: name
a wrinkled beholder: I am 486486 and NOT 'Blinky' as some people called me ... before they died.

Player: Tibia
a wrinkled beholder: It's 1, not 'Tibia', silly.

Player: cyclops
a wrinkled beholder: Uglyness incarnate. One eye! Imagine that! Horrible!

Player: elves
a wrinkled beholder: These fools and their superstitious life cult don't understand anything of importance.

Player: Excalibug
a wrinkled beholder: Only inferior species need weapons.

Player: Ab'Dendriel
a wrinkled beholder: I heard that elves moved in upstairs.

Player: numbers
a wrinkled beholder: Numbers are essential. They are the secret behind the scenes. If you are a master of mathematics you are a master over life and death.

Player: books
a wrinkled beholder: Our books are written in 469, of course you can't understand them.

Player: 469
a wrinkled beholder: The language of my kind. Superior to any other language and only to be spoken by entities with enough eyes to blink it.

Player: orcs
a wrinkled beholder: Noisy pests.

Player: minotaurs
a wrinkled beholder: Their mages are so close to the truth. Closer then they know and closer then it's good for them.

Player: humans
a wrinkled beholder: Good tools to work with ... After their death, that is.


Player: bye
a wrinkled beholder: Wait right there. I will eat you after writing down what I found out.
