This transcript involves dialogue with Elnock Inquisitor and the player.

First time dialogue[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.
  • What do you want to ask?
    • Where is this place?
      • Player: Where is this place?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: I've heard it called Puro-Puro. It seems to be the home plane of the implings. 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.
      • What do you want to ask?
    • 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. 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. 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.
      • What do you want to ask?
    • 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.
      • (Continues below)
    • I've heard I may find dragon equipment in Puro-Puro.

Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Elnock Inquisitor: Ah, good day, it's you again. What can I do for you?
    • Can you remind me how to catch implings again?
      • Elnock Inquisitor: Certainly.
      • Elnock Inquisitor: In Puro-Puro, you will need a butterfly net to catch an impling and at least one special impling jar to store them in. 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. Some of these implings have escaped to Gielinor, but have been exhausted by the journey. Assuming you are experienced enough, you can catch them without needing any equipment. Once you have caught an impling in a jar, you can break the jar open to obtain the impling's object, or you can exchange certain combinations of jars with me. I will then return the jars to my clients. In exchange, I will provide equipment that helps you hunt implings and butterflies more effectively. But beware: imps in the maze do not like their kind 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 escape from them with ease. I have, however, done some investigating and come up with a solution: if a butterfly jar is coated with a thin layer of a substance that is noxious to them, implings 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 sell you a few, although I don't have an infinite supply. I can also offer several empty jars in exchange for any full ones you have.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • 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. 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. I have some impling deterrent which I may trade if you prove that you can catch implings well.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • So, what's this equipment you can provide, then?
          • Elnock Inquisitor: I have been given permission by my clients to give three pieces of equipment to able hunters. 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 steal jarred implings from you. 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. 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 a limited number of charges) without having to carry a pack full of them.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • 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 Store opens)
        • Do you have some spare equipment I can use?
    • Can I trade some jarred implings, please?
      • (Elnock's Exchange opens)
    • Can I buy a few impling jars?
    • 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 Store opens)
    • Do you have some spare equipment I can use?
      • If the player has not claimed the spare equipment yet:
        • Elnock Inquisitor: Yes! I have some spare equipment for you.
        • A butterfly net and seven impling jars appear in the player's inventory.
        • Elnock Inquisitor: There you go. You have everything you need now. If you are ready to start hunting implings, then enter the main part of the maze. Just push through the wheat that surrounds the centre of the maze and get catching!
        • Player: Thanks, I'll get going.
      • If the player has already claimed the spare equipment:
        • Elnock Inquisitor: I have already given you some equipment. If you are ready to start hunting implings, then enter the main part of the maze. Just push through the wheat that surrounds the centre of the maze and get catching!
