Story Dialogue
Find the Beggar who made the report and see what he has to say.
Beggar

And what brings you here today, my friend?

(You ask the beggar about spotting the Lizardman,
and he nods eagaerly. [sic])

Oh, yes, yes. I am certain about what I saw. That is why I made my intial report. But if you want more details...


(The beggar cups his hands and gives you a toothy smile.)


[Player must choose either "Give Money" or "Forget It".]

[If player selects "Forget It".]
Beggar

Ah, I'm so hungry. So very hungry. It's affecting my memory, see? Oh no, I can barely talk. Too...hungry...


[Dialogue moves to "How can you get more information from the Beggar?"]

[If player selects "Give Money".]

How Kind. How very, very kind.

Delivered 10 gold
Beggar

I'll tell you what I know,
since you were so generous.

I was looking for a good alley to sleep in last night,
the morning dew gives me backaches, you know...

When I saw these strange fellows wearing bandannas go past. I was startled, so I hid, and I saw them go into the sewers.

Before they disappeared, I glimpsed one of their faces!
It wasn't the face of a human, I'll tell you that.

How can you get more information from the Beggar?
Beggar

Oh, ho ho! Back, are you?


[Player must select either "Give Money" or "Forget It" again.]

[If player selects "Forget It".]
Beggar

I'm sorry. I have no energy to talk because I'm too hungry. I can't remember a thing.

[If player selects "Give Money".]
Beggar

Oh, how kind of you...

Tell Riordan what the Beggar told you.
Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

Well? How did it go?
What'd he say?

(You tell Riordan what happened, and his eyes bulge at the part where you give the beggar money.)

You PAID for an awful story like that?!
What a waste of time and resources!

Why didn't you just go in the sewer and investigate for yourself? By the goddess, I am surrounded by incompetence!

[[File:{{{npc}}} (NPC Icon).png|text-bottom|35px]] [[{{{npc}}}]]
You received information on Battle: [[Discover battle::Sewers|Sewers]].
Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

Do you understand me? Investigate the sewers.
The entrance has been taped off for now, by Keaghan's orders.

Wouldn't want anyone to trip and hurt themselves, would we?
You'll have to go around, through the river entrance.

Investigate, then report back to me.

Complete Battle Quest Sewers, and then talk to Riordan at the Royal Army Base.
Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

(Riordan smirks.)
So. Find any Fomors down there?

(You tell him what you saw, and he gasps.)
You saw Ratmen down there?

Hmph. How fortunate for that beggar.
If he had been lying, his life would not have been spared.

Keaghan (NPC Icon).png Keaghan

Riordan, do not speak such nonsense.

Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

....

Keaghan (NPC Icon).png Keaghan

(Keaghan looks deep in thought.)
The Fomors were hiding just below us.

This a [sic] disgrace for the Royal Army. Our enemies, in our very midst, and we didn't have a clue.

Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

Yes, this IS bad.

Keaghan (NPC Icon).png Keaghan

Hmm, while these Ratmen may be living in our sewers, they were not the ones who attacked the Pontiff.

What else did we find out?

Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

He seemed certain that the creatures were not human, but the bandanna hid the infiltrators' faces.

Keaghan (NPC Icon).png Keaghan

Something is not right. We need to keep investigating.
Riordan, take command. I have some things to take care of.

Riordan (NPC Icon).png Riordan

Yes, sir.
