Inn dialogue[edit]

Rex

Hey, Gramps. There's something I'd like to talk to you about.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Of course, Rex. You know I'm always willing to lend you an ear.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
OK! Let's go to the Canyon of Husks at Spirit Crucible Elpys and I'll tell you all about it!
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Oh... Seems an awfully long way to go...

Heart-to-Heart[edit]

Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Hey, Gramps... You were protecting this place for years and years, right?
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
That I was. Five hundred of them, in fact.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
But all that time I was a kid in Fonsett, I never noticed you doing anything like that.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Well, things have been quiet for the past few centuries.
Given two hundred years or so, rumors pass into legend, and people stop taking them so seriously.
Long ago, Drivers used to enter this place quite often, but their numbers have long since fallen off.
Besides, the entrance itself will not open for any but a Leftherian.
And sad though it may be, the population of Fonsett is on the decline.
Fewer and fewer people are even aware of this place.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
I see...
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
So you actually had work to do back in the day, huh?
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
I'm no layabout now, either! I was the one who told you of this place, if you recall!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Sure, whatevs.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Honestly, Nia, you're just like Corinne when she was younger.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Huh?! Really?!
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
I'm not sure if that's a compliment...
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
She was quite the little firecracker. Even came in here once, as a child.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Wow, pretty gutsy.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Though she turned back upon reaching the bridge. She must have sensed that this was a place to be feared.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
It's protected by the village's guardian spirit after all. Anyone in Fonsett would know it's not a place to enter lightly.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
To fear and to respect are two sides of the same coin, you know.
The people of Fonsett understand the importance of this place on an instinctive level.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
What do I say to that?
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Only thanks to you, Gramps.

Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
You've been protecting this place for centuries, right?
I think it's probably thanks to you that the villagers have such a powerful respect for the Village Guardian.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Yeah, you can't have respect without someone to keep it alive.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
If it were not for the Titan Azurda, this place may truly have been forgotten by the world completely.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Well, I don't think anyone's put it to me quite like that before.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
You've done good, these past 500 years.
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
Yeah. Good job, Gramps.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
...
More than anything at times like this...
I just feel thankful that I'm able to travel with you all in this form.
If I'd remained in my old body, I might never have come here and heard those words!
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
I thought you were gonna say something profound, not just bask in the praise!
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
Hohohoh!
Rex
XC2 character icon Rex.png
How would outsiders feel about it?
XC2 weapon icon Catalyst Scimitar.png Trust +200
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
People from outside of Fonsett village?
None have entered in recent years, but 400 years ago, visitors did sometimes venture in here with Fonsett youths.
It seems people from outside see this place as little more than another ruin to be explored.
I tried to talk them out of entering but they never appreciated my words.
Still, I didn't feel it was right to stop them by force.
They stood precious little chance of reaching the end, at any rate.
Thus it was that many adventurers entered, never to return.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I daresay their sacrifice also contributed to the healthy respect the villagers now hold for this place.
Zeke
XC2 character icon Zeke.png
Yeah, you don't treat a ruin lightly when folks go in and never come out.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
I don't doubt that that is indeed a part of it.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
You've been watching for 500 years as all this stuff happened, right?
I guess that must've been tough going.
Sorry for being all disrespectful and stuff before.
Gramps
XC2 character icon Empty.png
No need to apologize, Nia.
We are all quite used to your foul mouth at this point.
And we know you have a kind heart underneath.
Nia
XC2 character icon Nia.png
Urghh...
I wanna make a snappy comeback, but that would ruin my apology!
