Player: hi
Santiago: Hello again, player! It's great to see you. If you like, we can chat a little. Just use the dark blue keywords again to choose a topic.
Player: keywords
Santiago: Right, this was a keyword. But actually there are more interesting topics to talk about.
Player: job
Santiago: I catch fish for a living. But I'm telling you, those cockroaches are ruining me.
Player: name
Santiago: Oh, my name is Santiago. I could tell you some gossip about me, harhar. I also know many stories.
Player: Time
Santiago: Time is passing slowly on Rookgaard, I can tell you!
Player: Rookgard
Santiago: We are currently south of the village of Rookgaard, just follow the path to the east. Once you are there, you will meet many other citizens.
Player: main
Santiago: The main continent is so much bigger than Rookgaard. You can travel there once you are level 8 and have chosen a vocation.
Player: vocation
Santiago: The Tibian vocations are knight, paladin, sorcerer and druid, each of them has its own specialities.
Player: knight
Santiago: Knights are strong melee fighters. They usually use weapons such as swords, clubs or axes.
Player: druid
Santiago: Druids are nature magic users, specialised in earth, ice and healing.
Player: paladin
Santiago: Paladins are distance fighters and holy magic users. They outrun their enemies and shoot them with arrows or bolts.
Player: sorcerer
Santiago: Sorcerers are elemental magic users, specialised in fire, energy and death magic.
Player: cockroach
Santiago: Every morning, I'm missing about a dozen fishes. Once, I've seen one of those beasts nibbling on a fish! They are SO disgusting!
Player: tibia
Santiago: Tibia is a huge world with many cities - most of them threatened by monsters. If you help us fighting them, you will earn experience and grow into a strong warrior.
Player: cities
Santiago: There are many cities on the main continent, much bigger than our little village here. You should visit all of them!
Player: monsters
Santiago: Here on Rookgaard, we are lucky that the monsters threatening our village are rather weak. I wouldn't want to have the dragons and demons of the main continent here!
Player: dragons
Santiago: You'll never forget your first dragon. That is true even after all those years. Fierce beasts they are!
Player: demons
Santiago: There are numerous different demons all over Tibia. They mostly hide deep in dungeons, but sometimes they dare entering the human realm.
Player: citizens
Santiago: Most of the citizens are merchants. We have also two guards and a healer, and a teacher in our academy.
Player: santiago
Santiago: Everyone in Tibia has a job, and I'm a fisherman! Well - I used to be a famous pirate, to be honest, but all those adventures were too much for me.
Player: gossip
Santiago: Did you hear that story about me catching this HUUUUGE fish?! It was so big that I couldn't pull it on board of my ship... and... and ...
Player: stories
Santiago: There are so many things I could tell you, I don't even know where to start! My best stories are about Svargrond and the explorer society.
Player: merchants
Santiago: We have a weapon smith called Obi, Dixi is selling armors and Al Dee is offering general tools. Also, you can buy potions from Lily. I think those are the most important people to trade with.
Player: guards
Santiago: The bridge guards Dallheim and Zerbrus can tell you which monsters are suitable for your level and where to find them.
Player: healer
Santiago: Our healer is called Cipfried. He guards the temple.
Player: teacher
Santiago: The teacher of the academy is called Seymour. The academy is just north of the temple.
Player: fisherman
Santiago: To be a fisherman, you only need a fishing rod and worms. You can become one too! Fishing rods can be bought in all cities, even in Rookgaard.
Player: pirate
Santiago: Oh, that life is over. I've settled down. Fighting against those cockroaches is the only excitement I have nowadays, and that's already enough!
Player: adventures
Santiago: You'll experience more than enough adventures soon enough, I'm sure! You look young and strong, Tibia awaits you!
Player: svargrond
Santiago: There was a huge fuzz about it. Actually no one ever knew that it existed until a while ago when the sea serpents which had blocked the sea passage there suddenly disappeared ...
Santiago: Nowadays there is a barbarian settlement, and I heard that you need to win a drinking contest to become an inhabitant! Now that's something! ...
Santiago: Also, there are many different types of fish. They catch them through ice holes there.
Player: explorer society
Santiago: The explorer society has always work for brave adventurers. You can join them in Port Hope or Northport once you arrive on the main continent.
Player: port hope
Santiago: That's a small settlement in the south of Tibia. The jungle of Tiquanda is all around it. There are many places to discover like Banuta, Trapwood or Chor.
Player: northport
Santiago: That's a very small village near one of the main cities, Carlin. I considered living there because it's almost as quiet as Rookgaard.
Player: banuta
Santiago: That is the name of the ape town. They say there is an ape who can talk! I don't believe that, harharhar!
Player: chor
Santiago: This place was discovered some years ago. It's a lizard town and those snake-human mixed thingies are still there! I wonder why they haven't been discovered earlier.
Player: trapwood
Santiago: Wild horses couldn't drag me there!! Evil little beasts called dworcs live there. They use a weird type of voodoo magic.
Player: trade
Santiago: Oh sorry, I don't trade. But if you meet other citizens, it can't hurt to ask them for a trade! If they have offers or buy your stuff, they'll tell you.
Player: obi
Santiago: Obi is a skilled smith. If you need weapons, you can buy them at his shop.
Player: dixi
Santiago: She's Obi's granddaughter and deals with armors and shields, just upstairs from Obi's shop.
Player: al dee
Santiago: Al Dee sells tools such as torches, ropes and shovels. You will learn about them soon!
Player: lily
Santiago: Lily's shop is just behind the bridge that leads to the village. She sells potions which will refill your health or cure poison.
Player: dallheim or zerbrus
Santiago: He's a great warrior. He can also tell you much about monsters and dungeons on this island.
Player: cipfried
Santiago: Visiting Cipfried is a good idea if you are badly injured or poisoned. Just ask him for a heal.
Player: seymour
Santiago: Seymour is a teacher running the academy. He has many important information about Tibia.
Player: experience
Santiago: Earning experience and gaining levels will make you stronger. It's all about power in Tibia!
Player: warrior
Santiago: Well, everybody is a 'warrior' in general. You can choose between four vocations once you are level 8.
Player: quest
Santiago: I think apart from killing cockroaches there's no quest I could give you. There are many more quests on the main continent, just ask around!
Player: oracle
Santiago: Oh, you're a bit young to hear about the oracle. Be patient, you'll learn everything in time.
Player: skip tutorial
Santiago: Oh, so you know everything about Tibia already? Do you really want to skip the tutorial?
Player: yes
Santiago: Well, then good luck and take care!
Player: bye
Santiago: Take care, player!
