Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before learning how to catch Implings from Elnock[edit | edit source]

  • Player: What's a gnome doing here?
  • Elnock Inquisitor: I'm an investigator. I'm watching the implings.
  • Player: Why would you want to do that?
  • Elnock Inquisitor: My client has asked me to find out where certain missing items have been going.
  • Player: Who is this client?
  • Elnock Inquisitor: I'm not at liberty to discuss that. Investigator-client confidentiality don't you know.
    • Where is this place?
      • Player: Where is this place?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: The fairies call it Puro-Puro. It seems to be the home plane of the implings.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I don't think these creatures have a name for it. As you can see there isn't a lot else here other than wheat.
      • Player: How did you get here?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: The same way you did, I suspect. Through a portal in a wheat field. I followed one back.
      • Player: I haven't noticed them do that.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: That's why I'm the investigator and you're the adventurer.
    • So what are these implings?
      • Player: So, what are these implings?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: That's a very interesting question. My best guess is that they are relatives to imps, which is why there are imps here as well.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Implings do appear to like collecting objects and, as my clients have noted, have no concept of ownership. However, I do not sense any malicious intent.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: It is my observation that they collect things that other creatures want, rather than they want them themselves. It seems to provide them with sustenance.
      • Player: So they feed off our desire for things?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Possibly. Either way, it seems that they almost exclusively collect things that people want, except their younglings who I infer haven't learnt the best things to collect yet.
      • Player: So the more experienced implings have the more desirable items?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: That is my observation. Yes.
    • Can I catch these implings then?
      • Player: Can I catch these implings, then?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Indeed you may. In fact I encourage it. You will, however, require some equipment.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Firstly you will need a butterfly net in which to catch them and at least one special impling jar to store an impling.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: You will also require some experience as a Hunter since these creatures are elusive. The more immature implings require less experience, but some of the rarer implings are extraordinarily hard to find and catch.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Once you have caught one, you may break the jar open and obtain the object the impling is carrying. Alternatively, you may exchange certain combinations of jars with me. I will return the jars to my clients. In
      • Elnock Inquisitor: exchange I will be able to provide you with some equipment that may help you hunt butterflies more effectively.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Also, beware. Those imps walking around the maze do not like the fact that their kindred spirits are being captured and will attempt to steal any full jars you have on you, setting the implings free.
    • I've heard I may find dragon equipment in Puro-Puro.
      • Player: I've heard I may find dragon equipment in Puro-Puro.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Have you indeed? Well, that may well be true, though bear in mind that implings are quite small so they are unlikely to be lugging a sizeable shield around with them. However, since it seems that dragon items are
      • Elnock Inquisitor: very desirable to humans then it certainly is possible that the most expert implings may try to obtain such equipment.
      • Player: So, it's true then? Cool!
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I should warn you, though, if the impling is strong enough to collect dragon equipment, then you will have to be very skilled at hunting implings in order to catch them.

After learning how to catch Implings from Elnock[edit | edit source]

  • Elnock Inquisitor: Ah, good day, it's you again. What can I do for you?
    • If the player has an Impling scroll in their inventory:
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Ah, I notice you don't own an impling collector's scroll.
        • Do you want an impling collector's scroll?
          • Yes, please
            • Elnock gives you a scroll. If you check it whilst in the maze, you will see how many of each impling you have captured.
            • (End of dialogue)
          • No, thanks.
            • Player: No thanks.
    • Can you remind me how to catch implings again?
      • Player: Can you remind me how to catch implings again?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Certainly.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Firstly you will need a butterfly net in which to catch them and at least one special impling jar to store an impling.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: You will also require some experience as a Hunter since these creatures are elusive. The more immature implings require less experience, but some of the rarer implings are extraordinarily hard to find and catch.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Once you have caught one, you may break the jar open and obtain the object the impling is carrying. Alternatively, you may exchange certain combinations of jars with me. I will return the jars to my clients. In
      • Elnock Inquisitor: exchange I will be able to provide you with some equipment that may help you hunt butterflies more effectively.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Also, beware. Those imps walking around the maze do not like the fact that their kindred spirits are being captured and will attempt to steal any full jars you have on you, setting the implings free.
        • Tell me more about these jars.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: You cannot use an ordinary butterfly jar as a container as the implings will escape from them with ease. However, I have done some investigation and have come up with a solution - if a butterfly jar is coated
          • Elnock Inquisitor: with a thin layer of a substance noxious to them they become incapable of escape.
          • Player: What substance is that, then?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I have tried a few experiments with the help of a friend back home, and it turns out that a combination of anchovy oil and flowers - marigolds, rosemary or nasturtiums - will work.
          • Player: How do you make anchovy oil then?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I'd grind up some cooked anchovies and pass them through a sieve.
          • Player: Where do I make these jars?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Well, I believe there is a chemist in Rimmington that has a small still that you could use.
          • Player: Is there anywhere I can buy these jars?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Well I may be able to let you have a few - if it means you will start hunting these implings - although I do not have an infinite supply.
        • Tell me more about these thieving imps.
          • Player: Tell me more about these thieving imps.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Imps and implings appear to be related, and the imps here are quite protective of their smaller relations. If you allow them to get too close then they will attempt to steal jarred implings from your pack, if you have them.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: They will then set them free, dropping your jar on the floor. So, if you're quick, you may be able to catch it again.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I have some impling deterrent which I may trade if you prove that you can catch implings well.
        • So what's this equipment you can give me then?
          • Player: So what's this equipment you can give me, then?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I have been given permission by my clients to give three pieces of equipment to able hunters.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Firstly, I have some imp deterrent. If you bring me three baby implings, two young implings and one gourmet impling already jarred, I will give you a vial. Imps don't like the smell, so they will be less likely to
          • Elnock Inquisitor: steal jarred implings from you.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Secondly, I have magical butterfly nets. If you bring me three gourmet implings, two earth implings and one essence impling I will give you a new net. It will help you catch both implings and butterflies.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Lastly, I have magical jar generators. If you bring me three essence implings, two eclectic implings and one nature impling I will give you a jar generator. This object will create either butterfly or impling jars (up to
          • Elnock Inquisitor: a limited number of charges) without having to carry a pack full of them.
        • Do you have some spare equipment I can use?
          • If the player has not recieved free equipment from Elnock before:
            • Elnock Inquisitor: Yes! I have some spare equipment for you.
            • Elnock Inquisitor: There you go. You have everything you need now.
            • Elnock gives the player one Butterfly net and seven Impling jars.
          • If the player has already recieved free equiment from Elnock before:
            • Elnock Inquisitor: I have already given you some equipment.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: If you are ready to start hunting implings, then enter the main part of the maze.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: Just push through the wheat that surrounds the centre of the maze and get catching!
          • (End of dialogue)
    • Can I trade some jarred implings please?
    • Could you store some equipment for me?
      • Player: Could you store some equipment for me?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I suppose I could keep hold of a net and a few empty jars for you. Just give me what you want me to hold.
      • Elnock's equipment storage interface opens.
    • Do you have some spare equipment I can use?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I have already given you some equipment.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: If you are ready to start hunting implings, then enter the main part of the maze.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Just push through the wheat that surrounds the centre of the maze and get catching!
      • (End of dialogue)
    • Can you tell me about the wheat?
      • Player: Can you tell me about the wheat?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: The wheat here can be hard to push through and pushing through it definitely makes you stronger. I found it easier to push through it for about half an hour just after coming through a temporary crop circle.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I call it the Farmer's Affinity.
        • If players have turned Strengh XP on for pushing wheat:
          • Player: What if I didn't want to become stronger pushing through the wheat?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I could give you oil to rub on you to reduce friction. Still as hard to push but you don't get stronger.
          • Turn wheat Strengh XP OFF?
            • Yes
              • You will no longer get Strength XP pushing through the wheat.
            • No
              • (End of dialogue)
        • If players have turned Strengh XP off for pushing wheat:
          • Player: You gave me oil to stop me getting stronger. What if I changed my mind?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I could lend you a cloth to wipe it off. That should let you become strong while pushing through the wheat.
          • Turn wheat Strengh XP ON?
            • Yes
              • You will once again get Strength XP pushing through the wheat.
            • No
              • (End of dialogue)
    • Can I buy a few impling jars?
      • Player: Can I buy a few impling jars?
        • If players have already purchased 10 jars for the day:
          • Elnock Inquisitor: You've already purchased 10 jars today, that's enough. Please come back tomorrow if you'd like to buy more.
          • (End of dialogue)
        • If players have yet to purchase 10 jars for the day:
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I usually prefer trading these jars for implings, but if you desperately need them I'm willing to sell you up to 10 jars per day.
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I will sell these jars for 2,000 coins each. How many would you like to purchase?
          • Players are asked how many jars they'd like to purchase.
            • If players input 0:
              • Elnock Inquisitor: My time is valuable, please give me a serious offer next time.
              • (End of dialogue)
            • If players are purchasing more than one jar:
              • Elnock Inquisitor: So you would like to purchase X jars, costing you a total of X coins. Is that correct?
                • Yes
                  • If players do not have enough coins to afford the desired amount of jars:
                    • Elnock Inquisitor: You don't seem to have brought enough coins, please come back with X coins if you'd like to buy the jars.
                    • (End of dialogue)
                  • If players have enough coins to afford the desired amount of jars:
                    • Elnock Inquisitor: Here you go. You can come back if you need more and tomorrow I will have another 10 jars ready for purchase.
                    • (End of dialogue)
                  • If players purchase the maximum amount of jars available:
                    • Elnock Inquisitor: Here you go. If you need some more I'll have 10 new jars ready for purchase tomorrow.
                    • (End of dialogue)
                • No
                  • Elnock Inquisitor: My time is valuable, please give me a serious offer next time.
                  • (End of dialogue)
            • If players input more than the remaining jars available for the day:
              • Elnock Inquisitor: That's too many, I can let you purchase a maximum of X jars for a total of X coins today.
              • Players are asked again how many jars they'd like to purchase.
