Quotes[edit | edit source]

Volume 1[edit | edit source]

  • (To Erin) “Now look, there’s no need for violence. I can see that you are no ordinary plebian fool but an extraordinary plebian. Believe me when I say that is a high compliment from a practice of the arcane such as I.”
  • (To Erin) "I imagine…I imagine if all four containers were to rupture, the swarm of these insects could very well engulf us and melt our flesh within moments.”
  • (To Erin) “I also had a far more lucrative occupation liberating unneeded items from those who were in no position to use them, but apparently that is considered a grave violation of privacy as well.”

Volume 2[edit | edit source]

  • (To Erin) “Ah. There you are. Your inn moved. Why did it move?”
  • (To Erin) “I may be the first [Necromancer] in years to master the animation of a species without bone. I even learned a new Skill. And leveled!”
  • (To Erin) “This ‘hamburger’ interests me more, actually. I prefer meat.”
  • (To Selys) “It isn’t murder if it’s a Human. I believe one of your friendly fellow citizens told me that.”
  • (To Selys) “What? I’m on your side here. The girl gets punished, everyone’s happy, and I get a free body.”
  • (To Ceria) “Too kind by far, that girl. For a child from another world, she is rather careless.”
  • (To dead Goblins) “Oh fallen Goblins. Rise from your graves and seek my enemies!

Volume 3[edit | edit source]

  • (To Ceria) “I am a better [Necromancer] than I am a [Mage] by far.”
  • (To his teammates) “If we must persist, let us do so with dignity. Onwards, then.”
  • (To a child) “Touch my bag child, and I will reanimate your corpse just so I can beat it to death again.
  • (To his teammates) “After all, if something strange is going on that girl probably had something to do with it.”
  • (To Ksmvr) “First, call me comrade one more time and I will blast your mandibles off your face. Second—”
  • (To Ksmvr) “You, Ksmvr, are clearly a natural-born scholar, as perhaps befits your advanced standing among the Antinium.”
  • (To Ceria) “You won’t believe what I—and Ksmvr I suppose—have discovered! It’s a revolutionary—nay, unprecedented loophole in the spell matrix! I can’t believe it wasn’t covered!”
  • (To Erin) “Fine. I am outnumbered and overruled by the imposition of what some might call honor or common decency. Take the damned door!”
  • (To Teriarch) “Please take me on as your apprentice! To learn from someone who lived during the time of Archmage Zelkyr—I would do anything for such an honor!”

Volume 4[edit | edit source]

  • (To dead Bear) “Rise, rise, oh fallen bear. To rend and bite, to rend and tear!
  • (To Erin) “Does this mean there is in fact, no food?
  • (To Ceria) “I would live with a Creler in the basement if it meant a private room for myself, Springwalker. Five Goblins is a small price to pay for an upgrade.”

Volume 5[edit | edit source]

  • (To Erin) “I call others fools. I judge harshly—out of pride and vanity it is true, but also a sense of my own self-worth, my own recognition of my talents. But I must admit—I am as idiotic as the next self-satisfied peon at times. We are all fools, and it is wrong of me to judge based on a moment’s failing. But perhaps it is only the truly intelligent that see the truth? Ah, hubris.”
  • (To Falene) “No! Shut up! You’re worse than Ceria ever could be!”
  • (To Ceria) “They made a terrible mistake. If you can’t forgive it, kill them now. But I would tell you not to.”
  • (To Ceria) “Yes. And as I recall, you eventually forgave one fool who unleashed wrath upon the innocent.”
  • (To Erin) “It feels like we met long ago. But it was not too long that I was threatening you for food, wasn’t it?”
  • (To Ksmvr) “You do know that a sheet over one’s head is not a disguise, Ksmvr?”
  • (To Yvlon) “But you are my teammate. And I do not—will not experiment with the living.”
  • (To Yvlon) “I believe I am growing fonder of you by the minute, Miss Byres.”
  • (To Selys) “The Goblins have secrets, Miss Selys. I wished to know some of them. Secrets are important. Valuable. They are the dark lifeblood of this world. They run thicker than blood and are worth far more than gold.”
  • (To Erin) “I will conjure you a skeleton to do the work if you desire, Erin. But you won’t get me to move for love or money. Threats of violence may suffice.”

Volume 6[edit | edit source]

  • (To Maughin) “I am a humble servant of magic, Master Maughin. The day’s greetings with you. Please forgive our lax manners.”
  • (To Selys) “Then what would you do? Enlighten me, oh fount of necromantic knowledge.”
  • (To Horns) “I am content with being alone. I, like many, have made my choice. If I truly thought love were essential to my happiness, I would be miserable.”
  • (To Yvlon) “But would I have been true to myself, or living a lie? I would rather seek truer love.”
  • (To Yvlon) “Not yet. Although I am amused to see her inn is the locus of her breed of chaos, even when she herself is not here.”
  • (To Erin) “That was purely an accident, Miss Solstice. A happy one, I assure you. I was simply unprepared for…well, a happy accident.”
  • (To Mrsha) “I’m alright. You helped save me, didn’t you? It was brave of you. You are…my heroine.”
  • (To Montressa) “I’m sorry Montressa. I never meant it. Never forgive me. But know that I never meant it.”
  • (To Alais) “Personal preference, Captain Alais. You prefer lightning magic, do you not? I have an affinity with death magic. And to be honest, I enjoy [Necromancy].”
  • (To everyone) “Necromancy. You want to know why I practice it? Because I am good at it. Because I want to use it! Because it is what I love! There is no greater reason. None. But even if I did nothing with it, I would be hunted. And that is not fair. It was never—fair.”
  • (To Montressa) “The gods are dead. But I still see devils and demons. And heroes. Their company shamed and changed me. I think I’ve been happy.”
  • (To Erin) “Thank you for taking care of a rather wretched fool, Miss Solstice. Erin. But we all must go. We shall come back. That is a promise.”

Volume 7[edit | edit source]

  • (To Erin) “Well, I expect service, Miss Innkeeper. Pasta and blue juice, if you please. For me and my team.”

Volume 8[edit | edit source]

  • (To Az’kerash) “You are more than a [Necromancer]. More than undead. You are something more than just death and bile, aren’t you? Please. What is there for me to believe in down this lonely road, then? You were a hero to someone, weren’t you? Give me something to…believe in. Please.”
  • (To Igheriz) “I am a [Necromancer]. I use dead bodies. The dead. Not the living. It is true, I have done terrible things. In my greed and arrogance, I have unleashed horrors. Because I was too incautious, I have seen those I loved die. I have even…created a monster.”
  • (To Eloque) “No. I know monsters. You aren’t one. Igheriz can’t make you into one. There is somewhere safe. There’s a future for people like us.”
  • (To Azam) “—of mortals? Friend Azam, I had hoped for a measure of ipseity from you, but to hear you utter the very stereotype of the immortal is somewhat disappointing.”
  • (To Eloque) “No. It is worth waiting for. Because it was the home I wanted all my life. I waited so long for a place like that, and never knew it existed.”
  • (To Igheriz) “Do it. Do it, Igheriz. Do your worst. I will live through it all. I will walk down that dark road that Az’kerash took. I will reach the end and I will end all of Roshal and you.
  • (To Czautha) “Thank you. I will never forget this.”
  • (To Hrome) “You know, I could not forgive them. Not Emir Riqre, not Igheriz. They were monsters, each and every one. But you? In some ways, you were the worst because you pretended it was normal. How the world should be.”
  • (To Dead Slavers) “You do not deserve rest. None of you. If there is any redemption in death, you will find it here. So…rise.
  • (To Skeleton Lord) “The living do such cruel things. You are so much simpler. You were made of things that called themselves men, but I ask you to be more than they were. To give, not take alone. Will you betray my hopes too? Can I make nothing beautiful, nothing that lasts? Will you—help me?
  • (To Ksmvr) ‘There are fools in every land, young and old, Ksmvr. Ignore them. Do what you must, and hang their feelings. They will never love you for simply…being. Why pander fruitlessly and humiliate oneself?’
  • (To Az’kerash) “Nevertheless, Az’kerash, or Archmage Chandler, a debt is a debt.”
  • (To Eloque) “I—What should I say in this moment? I—I should like to say something, Eloque. But I am not my teammates. They are better people than I.”
  • (To everyone) “On a hill outside the city of Liscor, there is an inn. It has a sign out front. If you choose to read it—which not many do—it has a strange inscription. ‘No killing Goblins’. And should you venture inside, you might meet an [Innkeeper]. If you do…your days will never be entirely boring. Not always dangerous or exciting—often, but not always. But you will be safe. Safe, for a given value of the word. Even so. I call it home. I have known nowhere else as fine.”
