Starting off[edit | edit source]

  • Veronica: Can you please help me? I'm in a terrible spot of trouble.
    • Aha, sounds like a quest. I'll help.
      • Player: Aha, sounds like a quest. I'll help.
      • Veronica: Yes yes, I suppose it is a quest. My fiance Ernest and I came upon this house.
      • Veronica: Seeing as we were a little lost Ernest decided to go in and ask for directions.
      • Veronica: That was an hour ago. That house looks spooky, can you go and see if you can find him for me?
      • Player: Ok, I'll see what I can do.
      • Veronica: Thank you, thank you. I'm very grateful.
      • Ernest the Chicken is started.
    • No, I'm looking for something to kill.
      • Player: No, I'm looking for something to kill.
      • Veronica: Oooh, you violent person you.
      • (End of dialogue)

  • Player: No, not yet.
  • (End of dialogue)

The Mad Scientist[edit | edit source]

  • Professor Oddenstein: Be careful in here, there's lots of dangerous equipment.
    • chose I'm looking for a guy called Ernest.
      • Player: I'm looking for a guy called Ernest.
      • Professor Oddenstein: Ah Ernest, top notch bloke. He's helping me with my experiments.
      • Player: So you know where he is then?
      • Professor Oddenstein: He's that chicken over there.
      • Player: Ernest is a chicken...? Are you sure?
      • Professor Oddenstein: Oh, he isn't normally a chicken, or at least he wasn't until he helped me test my pouletmorph machine.
      • Professor Oddenstein: It was originally going to be called a transmutation machine. But after testing pouletmorph seems more appropriate.
        • I'm glad Veronica didn't actually get engaged to a chicken.
          • Player: I'm glad Veronica didn't actually get engaged to a chicken.
          • Professor Oddenstein: Who's Veronica?
          • Player: Ernest's fiancee. She probably doesn't want to marry a chicken.
          • Professor Oddenstein: Ooh I dunno. She could have free eggs for breakfast.
          • Player: I think you'd better change him back.
          • Professor Oddenstein: Umm... It's not so easy...
          • Professor Oddenstein: My machine is broken, and the house gremlins have run off with some vital bits.
          • Player: Well I can look for them.
          • Professor Oddenstein: That would be a help. They'll be somewhere in the manor house or its grounds, the gremlins never get further than the entrance gate.
          • Professor Oddenstein: I'm missing the pressure gauge and a rubber tube. They've also taken my oil can, which I'm going to need to get this thing started again.
          • (End of dialogue)
        • Change him back this instant!
          • Player: Change him back this instant!
          • Professor Oddenstein: Umm... It's not so easy...
          • Professor Oddenstein: My machine is broken, and the house gremlins have run off with some vital bits.
          • Player: Well I can look for them.
          • Professor Oddenstein: That would be a help. They'll be somewhere in the manor house or its grounds, the gremlins never get further than the entrance gate.
          • Professor Oddenstein: I'm missing the pressure gauge and a rubber tube. They've also taken my oil can, which I'm going to need to get this thing started again.
          • (End of dialogue)
    • What does this machine do?
      • Player: What does this machine do?
      • Professor Oddenstein: Nothing at the moment... It's broken. It's meant to be a transmutation machine.
      • Professor Oddenstein: It has also spent time as a time travel machine, and a dramatic lightning generator, and a thing for generating monsters.
      • (End of dialogue)
    • Is this your house?
      • Player: Is this your house?
      • Professor Oddenstein: No, I'm just one of the tenants. It belongs to the count who lives in the basement.
      • Professor Oddenstein: Be careful in here, there's lots of dangerous equipment.
      • (End of dialogue)

  • Player: No no, he's been turned into an actual chicken by a mad scientist.
  • Veronica: Eeeeeek!
  • Veronica: My poor darling, why must these things happen to us.
  • Player: Well I'm doing my best to turn him back.
  • Veronica: Well be quick, I'm sure being a chicken can't be good for him.
