BigRob Posted December 25, 2003 Share Posted December 25, 2003 Well, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Christmas (or it is where I am anyway) and I thought IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d give everyone a small present. So here is AklonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s joining dialogue, re-written to reflect his placement in the Copper Coronet. This isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the whole thing (lacking dialogue for return visits) and the final form you see may be altered a bit, but enjoy anyway. Merry Christmas. (And for those of you that donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t celebrate Christmas, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know, have some cake or something) [First Sight (Killed the Beast Master)] Aklon: You there! Please wait! If those sounds I heard were any guide, you are not employed by Lehtinan. If that is indeed so, then release my chains and I shall assist you as far as I am able and for as long as you wish it. PC: 1. Who are you? How did you get here? [to WhoHow] 2. I shall free you, but I require no aid from you. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 3. I will gladly free you and accept your offer. [to Release] or [NoKey] 4. No, I think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll leave you right where you are. [to Leave] 5. What use are you to me? [to Use] [First Sight (Got the Key from Lehtinan)] Aklon: Strange. I thought the animal keeper was to handle me from now on. Has Lehtinan decided that it is time to use me again, or are you just curious? PC: 1. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work for Lehtinan. [continue] 2. Just curious. Goodbye. [End Dialogue] [continue] Aklon: You do not? Yet you walk unmolested in the secret places of his operation. Interesting. Regardless, I would ask that you set me free. If you do this, I will serve you to the best of my abilities, which are not inconsiderable. PC: 1. Who are you? How did you get here? [to WhoHow] 2. I shall free you, but I require no aid from you. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 3. I will gladly free you and accept your offer. [to Release] or [NoKey] 4. No, I think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll leave you right where you are. [to Leave] 5. Why should I risk LehtinanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ire for you? [to Ire] [WhoHow] Aklon: My name is Aklon. I am usually a travelling scholar and warrior, lately a slave and gladiator. Several months ago, I arrived here in Athkatla, travelling from Tethyr and parts beyond. I was staying at the Mithrest Inn and my food was apparently drugged, using a very powerful and subtle compound. Before I could obtain an antidote, I was set upon in the MithrestÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s corridors and rendered unconscious. I awoke here in the Copper Coronet, taken captive and used as an attraction for LehtinianÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more bloodthirsty customers. My abilities have proved popular. PC: 1. Very well, I shall free you, but I require no aid from you. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 2. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s good enough for me. I will free you. [to Release] or [NoKey] 3. Very interesting, but I think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll leave you right where you are. [to Leave] 4. What are these abilities? What use are you to me? [to Use] [NoKey] Aklon: In order to unlock my chains you will need the Beast MasterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s keys. If he is not in the Coronet, then Lehtinan likely has it. If you could find LehtinanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s overseer orb, that would also be helpful. PC: 1. I will look for the key and return. [End Dialogue] 2. Overseer orb? [to Orb] [Farewell] Aklon: I thank you for my freedom. Should you wish to reconsider your decision about my offer, you may find me at the cityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s docks, in one of the waterfront inns there. Farewell, my benefactor. [End Dialogue] [Release] Aklon: Many thanks, my benefactor. I will endeavour to be of use to you and repay your act. [End Dialogue] (Aklon joins party). [Leave] Aklon: Do as you will. [End Dialoge] [use] Aklon: A valid question, I suppose. I am a warrior of no small ability, though my body is my deadliest weapon. That is partially why I am kept under such security and bound with an enchanted slaveÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s collar. I am also possessed of a number of minor magical abilities, derived from my training and combat discipline. In my youth I was highly educated and had access to many books of lore. Perhaps most importantly, I have experience. I have spent many years travelling, east to Kara-Tur, south to Zakhara, the Land of Fate and all across the face of Faerun. PC: 1. So, who are you? How did you get here? [to WhoHow] 2. That sounds a little exagerated. Still, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t leave you here. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll free you and you can go your own way. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 3. Sounds impressive. You can join me. [to Release] or [NoKey] 4. Hah, see what good that experience does you, locked in a prison cell. [to Leave] 5. Slave collar? [to Collar] [ire] Aklon: I could easily dispatch Lehtinan, if I were free. Only these chains and this enchanted slave collar have kept him and his lackeys alive. Set me free and you can have my service. You can then take all of LehtinanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s possessions, or not, just as you wish. PC: 1. So, who are you? How did you get here? [to WhoHow] 2. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need you, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll free you anyway. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 3. I like the way you think. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s go. [to Release] or [NoKey] 4. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got no desire to antagonise Letinan. Stay here and rot. [to Leave] 5. Slave Collar? [to Collar] [Orb] Aklon: Lehtinan has a magical orb, which he can use to control those wearing an enchanted collar, which is attuned to the orb. My will is strong enough to resist the subtle coercion of the collar, but the orb can also be used to inflict crippling pain. As long as Lehtinan has the orb, he can prevent me from acting. If you gain or destroy the orb, then Lehtinan has no power over me. PC: 1. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see about getting it when I get the key. [End Dialogue] 2. What is this collar? [to Collar] [Collar] Aklon: This enchanted slave collar is of a design used many years ago, probably in the ancient Shoon empire, or possibly before that. I have not seen it clearly, so I cannot be sure. The collar can control a slave through the use of an overseerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s or masterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s orb. The orbs can place a glamour on a slave, making the target more receptive to the masterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wishes, or they can be used to cripple a slave with pain. Specific orbs control specific collars, though only a masterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s orb can open a collar, once affixed. PC: 1. So, who are you? How did you get here? [to WhoHow] 2. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really want your service, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll free you anyway. [to Farewell] or [NoKey] 3. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll try to get the key and the orb to set you free. [to Release] or [NoKey] 4. Interesting. But I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll set you free. [to Leave] 5. What use are you to me, that I should go to all this effort to free you? [to Use] I haven't decided who to give the orb to yet, so discussion about it and the collar may alter a bit. Link to comment
