Mission 1: Ivory Poaching
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: thieves Dorian: Hm. Well, we could use some fresh blood. Ahum. Do you want to join the thieves guild, Player? Player: yes Dorian: Excellent. You'll learn this trade from scratch. Our operations cover many fields of work. Some aren't even illegal. ... Dorian: Well, as long as you don't get caught at least. Ask me for a mission whenever you're ready. Player: mission Dorian: Your first job is quite easy. The Thaian officials are unwilling to share the wealth they've accumulated in their new town Port Hope. ... Dorian: They insist that most resources belong to the crown. This is quite sad, especially ivory is in high demand. Collect 10 elephant tusks and bring them to me.
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: What a fine material. That will be worth a coin or two. So far, so good. Ask me for another mission if you're ready for it. Player: bye Dorian: Good bye, Player!
Mission 2: Burglary
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: A client of our guild would like to get a certain vase. Unfortunately, it's not for sale. Well, by the original owner, that is. ... Dorian: We, on the other hand, would gladly sell him the vase. Therefore, it would come in handy if we get this vase in our hands. ... Dorian: Luckily, the walls of the owner's house are covered with vines, that will make a burglary quite easy. ... Dorian: You'll still need some lock picks to get the chest open in which the vase is stored. Must be your lucky day, as I'm selling lock picks for a fair price. ... Dorian: You might need some of them to get that chest open. The soon to be ex-owner of that vase is Sarina, the proprietor of Carlin's general store. Player: lock pick Dorian: Yes, I sell lock picks. Ask me for a trade. Player: trade Dorian: There. Player: bye Dorian: Good bye, Player!
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: What an ugly vase. But who am I to question the taste of our customers? Anyway, I might have another mission in store for you.
Mission 3: Invitation
Player: mission Dorian: Our beloved king will hold a great festivity at the end of the month. Unfortunately he forgot to invite one of our guild's representatives. Dorian: Of course it would be rude to point out this mistake to the king. It will be your job to get us an invitation to the ball. Dorian: Moreover, It will be a great chance to check the castle for, well, opportunities. I'm sure you understand. However, it's up to that pest Oswald to give out invitations, so he's the man you're looking for. Player: bye Dorian: Good bye, Player!
Oswald: Oh, hello Player. What is it? Why do you disturb me?
Oswald: What? So why in the world should I give you an invitation? It's not as if you were someone important, are you?
Oswald: Not that I am bribeable but I doubt that you own 1000 gold pieces. Or do you?
Oswald: Well, rich and generous people are always welcome in the palace.If you donate 1000 gold to a fund I oversee, I'll give you an invitation, ok?
Oswald: Excellent! Here is your invitation!
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: Ah, the key to untold riches. Don't worry, we'll make sure that no one will connect you to the disappearance of certain royal possessions. Dorian: You're too valuable to us. Speaking about your value, I might have some other mission for you.
Mission 4: Bridge Robbery
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: Your next mission is somewhat bigger and I'm sure much fun for you. Some new-rich merchant is being a bit more greedy than it's good for him. Dorian: The good thing is he's as stupid as greedy, so we have a little but cunning plan. We arranged the boring correspondence in advance, so you'll come in when the fun starts. Dorian: You'll disguise yourself as the dwarven ambassador and sell that fool the old dwarven bridge, south of Kazordoon. Dorian: Well, actually it is a bit more complicated than that. Firstly, you'll have to get forged documents. Ask around in the criminal camp to find a forger. Dorian: Secondly, you'll need a disguise. Percybald in Carlin is an eccentric actor that might help you with that. Dorian: As soon as you got both things, travel to Venore and find the merchant Nurik. Trade the false documents for the famous painting of Mina Losa and bring it to me. Player: bye Dorian: Good bye, Player!
Snake Eye: Hi Player. Come in and have a drink. Player: documents Snake Eye: Funny thing that everyone thinks we have forgers for fake documents here. But no, we don't. The best forger is old Ahmet in Ankrahmun.
Player: hi Ahmet: Be mourned pilgrim in flesh. I'm selling general goods. Player: documents Ahmet: You need some forged documents? But I will only forge something for a friend. ... Ahmet: The nomads at the northern oasis killed someone dear to me. Go and kill at least one of them, then we talk about your document.
Player: hi Ahmet: Be mourned pilgrim in flesh. I'm selling general goods. Player: documents Ahmet: The slayer of my enemies is my friend! For a mere 1000 gold I will create the documents you need. Are you interested? Player: yes Ahmet: And here they are! Now forget where you got them from.
Player: hi Percybald: Be greeted Player! Player: disguise Percybald: Hmpf. Why should I waste my time to help some amateur? I'm afraid I can only offer my assistance to actors that are as great as I am. ... Percybald: Though, your futile attempt to prove your worthiness could be amusing. Grab a copy of a script from the prop room at the theatre cellar. Then talk to me again about your test!
This next part is just an example, the transcript may vary, Percybald will say lines from the script and you'll have to say the line which follows according to the script you can see here.
Player: hi Percybald: Be greeted Player! Player: test Percybald: I hope you learnt your role! I'll tell you a line from the script and you'll have to answer with the corresponding line! Ready? Player: yes Percybald: How dare you? Are you mad? I hold the princess hostage and you drop your weapons. You're all lost! Player: I don't think so, dear doctor! Percybald: Ok, ok. You've got this one right! Ready for the next one? Player: yes Percybald: Too late puny knight. You can't stop my master plan anymore! Player: Watch out! It's a trap! Percybald: Ok, ok. You've got this one right! Ready for the next one? Player: yes Percybald: What's this? Behind the doctor? Player: Look! It's Lucky, the wonder dog! Percybald: Ok, ok. You've got this one right! Ready for the next one? Player: yes Percybald: Grrr! Player: Ahhhhhh! Percybald: Ok, ok. You've got this one right! Ready for the next one? Player: yes Percybald: You're such a monster! Player: Hahaha! Now drop your weapons or else... Percybald: Ok, ok. You've got this one right! Ready for the next one? Player: yes Percybald: Ah well, I think you passed the test! Here is your disguise kit! Now get lost, fate awaits me!
Player: hi Nurik: It's .. It's YOU! At last!! So what's this special proposal you would like to make, my friend? Player: dwarven bridge Nurik: Wait a minute! Do I get that right? You're the owner of the dwarven bridge and you are willing to sell it to me?? Player: yes Nurik: That's just incredible! I've dreamed about acquiring the dwarven bridge since I was a child! Now my dream will finally become true. ... Nurik: And you are sure you want to sell it? I mean really, really sure? Player: yes Nurik: How splendid! Do you have the necessary documents with you? Player: yes Nurik: Oh my, oh my. I'm so excited! So let's seal this deal as fast as possible so I can visit my very own dwarven bridge. Are you ready for the transaction? Player: yes Nurik: Excellent! Here is the painting you requested. It's quite precious to my father, but imagine his joy when I tell him about my clever deal! ... Nurik: Now leave me alone please. I have to prepare for my departure. Now my family will not call me a squandering fool anymore!
Player: hi Dorian: Greetings, Player! Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: Excellent, that serves this fool right. I fear in your next mission, you'll have to get your hands dirty. Just ask me to learn more about it.
Mission 5: Enforcing Debts
Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: That goblet is hardly worth all this trouble but we had to insist on our payment. However, I assume you are eager for more missions, so just ask.
Mission 6: Fishnapping
Player: mission Dorian: Your next job will be kidnapping. You'll get us the only creature that this scrupulous trader Theodore Loveless in Liberty Bay holds dear. ... Dorian: His little goldfish! To get that fish, you'll have to get in his room somehow. ... Dorian: As you might know I sell lock picks, but I fear unless you're extremely lucky, you won't crack this expensive masterpiece of a lock. However, get us that fish, regardless how.
Player: hi Chantalle: Hello. Player: key Chantalle: Oh my! You look so great in your uniform! You archpostmen are not only daring but also handsome. Here take it, that's the key you wanted. Just promise to visit menow and then!
Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: This little goldfish will bring us a hefty ransom! Just ask me if you're ready for another mission.
Mission 7: Blackmail
Player: mission Dorian: We'd like to ease our lives somewhat. Therefore, we would appreciate the cooperation with one of the Venore city guards. ... Dorian: Find some dirt about one of them. It's unimportant what it is. As soon as we have a foothold, we'll convince him to cooperate. Bring me whatever you may find.
Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: Excellent, that little letter will do the trick for sure ... Dorian: I think you're really capable and if you finish another mission, I'll allow you full access to our black market of lost and found items. Just ask me to learn more about that mission.
Mission 8: Message
Player: mission Dorian: Competition might be an interesting challenge but our guild isn't really keen on competition. ... Dorian: Unfortunately, we are lacking some good fighters, which is quite a disadvantage against certain other organisations. However, I think you're a really good fighter ... Dorian: Travel to the Plains of Havoc and find the base of our competitors under the ruins of the dark cathedral ... Dorian: On the lowest level, you'll find a wall with two trophies. Place a message of our guild on the wall, right between the trophies. On your way, get rid of as many of ourcompetitors as you can.
Player: mission Dorian: Have you finished your mission? Player: yes Dorian: Once again you've finished your job, and I'll keep my promise. From now on, you can trade with old Black Bert somewhere upstairs to get access to certain items that mightbe of value to someone like you. ... Dorian: If you like, you can also enter the room to the left and pick one item of your choice.
Prior to October 23 the compromising letter from mission 7 was hidden under the pillow of a bed. It was changed because the 9.7 update bugged quests involving the use of beds.
