Inn dialogue[edit]

Pyra

Hey, Brighid! If you're free, why don't we go visit some of the shops in Goldmouth?
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Sure! Sounds delightful!
Mòrag, would you like to come too?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Yes! Why not!

Heart-to-Heart[edit]

Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Hey, Brighid! I found something interesting in that shop over there.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Interesting?
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Yep. Here it is.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
What is that thing? It looks...quite grotesque...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Why, that's an Argentum Monkfish.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
You are familiar with this creature, Lady Mòrag?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
It's a rare delicacy that is only found in the waters around here. Rather tasty.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
People...eat this monstrous fish thing?
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
It might not look appetizing, but I've heard the taste is divine.
Since it's so rare, I thought I'd cook something up with it, but I'm not sure how...
Mòrag, do you know? Do tell, please!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
How should I respond...?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I'm not that great a cook...
XC2 character icon Pyra.png Trust +200, XC2 character icon Brighid.png Trust +100
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Oh, no, that's fine! I'm happy to do the messy part.
I just need you to tell me the steps, and then if you could add the spices...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Well, if that is all, I suppose it should be...fine...
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Are you certain, Lady Mòrag? About the spices and everything?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
D-don't you worry. Have some faith in my taste buds...
The scene fades to black for a moment. When it fades in again, the three women are standing in the kitchen of Fishy Fishy.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Right then. So, first, how should we cook it...?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...A fine question. Many would eat it grilled, or sliced raw, but I hear it tastes best in a stew.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Sounds great! Well then, Mòrag, can I ask you to get the stock ready?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Of course. If I recall, that's made by boiling the guts...
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
I think I can leave you to it then! I'll go buy the other ingredients.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Roger.
The scene fades out for a moment again. Pyra has now left, leaving just Mòrag and Brighid in the kitchen.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...
...Brighid?
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Yes, Lady Mòrag?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Do we have to begin by gutting this ugly little creature?
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Well, I should think so. Can you do it?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Erm... I'm not even really sure which part the guts are...
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
That would be the parts on the inside. Consider using a knife.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Right...
...Brighid?
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Yes, what is it now?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
The heart... The heart is still beating!
What do I do? Should I deliver the coup de grâce?[1]
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
I-indeed, that seems wise. We don't want it fighting back.
Another brief fade out.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Brighid!
It's...looking at me with those eyes, and moving those lips, like it's accusing me of something...
It's cursing me for taking its heart!
It's no use... I can't torment the dead any further...
Brighid, I'll leave the rest to you.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Wait just a minute! You can't force me to do your dirty work!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
I'm sorry, but I must!
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Lady Mòrag! Are you deserting in the face of the enemy?!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Very well, I'll do it.
XC2 character icon Pyra.png Trust +100, XC2 character icon Brighid.png Trust +200
The scene fades to black for a moment. When it fades in again, the three women are standing in the kitchen of Fishy Fishy.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Lady Mòrag, if I may. Is this really wise...?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Oh, don't you worry yourself.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Shall we start by gutting the fish, then?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Excuse me?
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
What's the matter?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Gut it? Gut this creature?
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
Well, yes. We can't exactly cook it like that.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Ahem. Understood. Life is a battlefield. Let us commence.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Show it who's boss, Lady Mòrag!
The scene fades out for a moment again.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...
...Brighid.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Yes?
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Please hold down its head.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Wh-wha...?! No, I, er, that is... I'd rather not...touch it.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
It's just a little tricky to make the incision when it keeps...staring at me...
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Qu-quite true, but...
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
For the love of the Architect, do it! Please, at least cover its eyes for me!
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
Y-yes, Ma'am. We cannot let a mere fish get the best of us!
Eeeeeeeeeeek![2]
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
What's wrong?!
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
It...It looked me in the eye! Is this thing still alive?!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Can it be?! Then I must end it before it strikes!
Mòrag draws her weapons.
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
It's opening its foul maw?!
Lady Mòrag, the enemy means to eat us! Quickly, the finishing blow!
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Very well! Hellfire!
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
No, wait! If you do that, the food will be-
Another brief fade out. Mòrag puts her weapons away - Pyra's attempt to get her to stop obviously didn't work.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
...Well, Brighid?
Brighid
XC2 character icon Brighid.png
As befits the Flamebringer. The foe is extinguished without a trace.
Mòrag
XC2 character icon Mòrag.png
Phew. Our mission here is done.
Pyra
XC2 character icon Pyra.png
What do you think you're doing?! There's nothing left for us to eat!

Notes[edit]

  1. Mòrag says "What should I do?" here despite what the text shows.
  2. The noise Brighid makes here is more of a shout - closer to "Aaahhh!"
