Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Rug merchant: Greetings, desert traveller. Do you require the services of Ali Morrisane's flying carpet fleet?
    • Choose an option
      • Tell me about Ali Morrisane.
        • Player: Tell me about Ali Morrisane.
        • Rug merchant: What? You haven't heard of Ali Morrisane? Possibly the greatest salesman in all the Kharidian Desert, if not all RuneScape?
          • If the player has not done The Feud:
            • (Transcript missing. edit)
          • If the player has done the Feud:
            • Player: Ah, yes, I remember him now. I went on a wild goose chase looking for his nephew.
            • Rug merchant: Ha! No doubt old Ali M instigated the whole thing.
            • Player: I had a bit of fun, though. The whole job was quite diverting.
            • Rug merchant: There's never a dull moment around that man. He's always looking for a way to make a quick coin or two. Can I help you with anything else?
            • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.', and the last is now 'No thanks.')
      • Tell me about this magic carpet fleet.
        • Player: Tell me about this magic carpet fleet.
        • Rug merchant: The latest idea from the great Ali Morrisane. Desert travel will never be the same again.
        • Player: So how does it work?
        • Rug merchant: The carpet or the whole enterprise?
          • Select an option
            • The carpet.
              • Player: Tell me about how the carpet works.
              • Rug merchant: I'm not really too sure; it's just an enchanted rug really, made out of special Ugthanki hair. It flies to whatever destination its owner commands.
              • Player: Are they for sale then?
              • Rug merchant: Do you think I'm mad? Do you think that Ali Morrisane would throw his magic carpet monopoly away?
              • Player: Well, perhaps if I offered the right price.
              • Rug merchant: Not a hope. Could you imagine the mess there'd be if people were constantly zooming through Al Kharid and Pollnivneach? It would be chaos. This way, we can keep the carpet traffic outside towns and other busy places.
              • Player: I suppose getting stuck in a carpet jam could get a bit tiresome.
              • Rug merchant: Just think of the friction burns you would get if you were in a carpet crash. Can I help you with anything else?
              • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.', and the last is now 'No thanks.')
            • The enterprise.
              • Player: Tell me about the enterprise.
              • Rug merchant: It's quite simple really. Ali Morrisane has hired myself and a few others to set up carpet stations at some of the desert's more populated places and run flights between the stations.
              • Player: So why has he limited the service to just the desert.[sic]
              • Rug merchant: I don't think Ali is prepared to take on Gnome Air just yet. Their gliders are much faster than our carpets. Besides that, I think we are in the short-haul business, something that would only work in harsh conditions like the desert.
              • Player: Why is that?
              • Rug merchant: I suppose because people would just walk. Getting lost isn't too much of a problem generally, but it's a different matter when you're in the middle of the Kharidian Desert with a dry waterskin and no idea which direction to go in.
              • Player: You're right, I guess. How's the business going?
              • Rug merchant: Not too bad. The hubs are generally quite busy, but the stations in Uzer and the Bedabin Camp could do with a bit more traffic.
              • Player: A growth market, I guess.
              • Rug merchant: Can I help you with anything else?
              • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.', and the last is now 'No thanks.')
      • Yes.
        • Magic carpet network interface opens.
      • No, but I had some questions.
        • Player: I have some other questions.
        • Rug merchant: I'll help you as much as I can.
          • Select an option
            • What are you doing here?
              • Player: What are you doing here?
              • Rug merchant: Besides the obvious of me looking after this station? I'm trying to figure out how these Tentis manage to cultivate such delicious pineapples. Can I help you with anything else?
              • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.', and the last is now 'No thanks.')
            • Is that your pet monkey nearby?
              • Player: Is that your pet monkey nearby?
              • Rug merchant: He's his own monkey, he does whatever suits him, a total nuisance.
              • Player: I detect a degree of hostility being directed towards the monkey.
              • Rug merchant: I shouldn't say this really, but sometimes I begin to question some of Ali Morrisane's ideas. He says that associating a monkey with any product will increase sales. I just don't know what will be next!
              • Player: Frogs?
              • Rug merchant: I doubt it; amphibians don't have the same cutesy factor as monkeys.
              • Player: I'm confused. I thought you didn't like monkeys.
              • Rug merchant: I don't dislike monkeys, it's just THAT monkey. I don't know, I might just be paranoid, but I think he's, well...evil.
              • Player: Hmm, interesting.
                • If the player has not completed Monkey Madness, or if the player has completed Monkey Madness and does not have an amulet of monkeyspeak with them:
                  • Rug merchant: Can I help you with anything else?
                  • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.')
                • If the player has completed Monkey Madness, and has an amulet of monkeyspeak in their bank:
                  • Player: Hang on a second, I have an amulet of monkeyspeak in my bank. Perhaps I could get it and see what it has to say for itself.
                  • (Continues below)
                • If the player has completed Monkey Madness, and has an amulet of monkeyspeak with them:
                  • Player: Hang on a second, I have an amulet of monkeyspeak in my bag. Perhaps I could have a word with him.
                  • (Continues below)
                  • Rug merchant: Would you? It sometimes gives me these stares... ~A visible shiver runs down his back.
                  • Rug merchant: I would be really grateful if you could get that monkey off my back. Can I help you with anything else?
                  • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.')
            • Where did you get that hat?
              • Player: Where did you get that hat?
              • Rug merchant: My fez? I got it from Ali Morrisane; it's a uniform of sorts. Apparently it makes us more visible, but I'm not too sure about it.
              • Player: Well, it is quite distinctive.
              • Rug merchant: Do you like it? I haven't really made my mind up about it yet. You see it's not all that practical for desert conditions.
              • Player: How so?
              • Rug merchant: Well, it doesn't keep the sun out of my eyes and after a while sitting out in the desert they really begin to burn. Can I help you with anything else?
              • (Shows previous options, except 'Yes' has been replaced with 'I want to travel by magic carpet', and the first two options now ends with a question mark (?) rather than a period (.), the fourth option is now 'I have some other questions.', and the last is now 'No thanks.')
      • I'd like to see what's lost and found.
        • If there's any lost and found to be collected:
          • Rug merchant: Yes, I have found many things that have not been claimed. They fall from people's packs as the carpets fly up. Here, have one. Come back tomorrow for more!
        • If there's no lost and found to be collected:
          • Rug merchant: Sorry, I haven't found anything yet. Come back tomorrow.
