- Player: Do you prefer to work alone?
- Without the Whaler unlocked:
- The Exile: : I'd work with someone who enjoys fishing. That was one of my responsbilities in the tribe.
- Unlock the Whaler (90 Fishing required) to unlock additional joint voyages.
- With the Whaler unlocked and not present:
- The Exile: There is a man who is a whaler - I would work with him. Fishing is something I have an affinity with, and fondness of.
- If both The Exile and Whaler are in port at the same time, additional joint voyages will be made available.
- With the Whaler unlocked and in the bar:
- The Exile: : I would work with your whaler friend. Back in Daemonheim, it was often my burden to fish and cook food for my tribe - heim crabs were my specialty.
- Voyage screen opens
- Without the Whaler unlocked:
- Player: How are your burdens?
- The Exile: They hang heavy on my shoulders as always, but my shoulders are strong, as they should be, for I am a worldbearer.

Story voyages[edit | edit source]
Meet the Exile[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Meet the Exile.
- Player: It's unusual to find a gorajo outside of Daemonheim.
- The Exile: I am not gorajo.
- Player: So, ramokee then? Ramokee are rarely good news. I don't need any trouble here.
- The Exile: I am not ramokee. I will not cause any trouble, naabe. I seek only solitude.
- Player: Not gorajo or ramokee. May I ask what, then?
- The Exile: No word in your language suits. I am between gorajo and ramokee.
- Player: You're a worldbearer, right? How about I call you that?
- The Exile: A worldbearer with no burden is no longer a worldbearer.
- Player: I see. I'll admit that this isn't in my top five conversations of all time. What should I call you then?
- The Exile: The easterners mostly call me 'Exile'. You may do the same. I care little.
- Congratulations - you have unlocked the Exile adventurer, the Unburdened Worldbearer! The Exile now has a chance to visit your port daily, bringing voyage opportunities.
Emotional Baggage[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Emotional Baggage.
- Player: Hello, um... Exile. What can I do for you?
- The Exile: There are too many people in your port. I wish to go somewhere quieter.
- Player: That's not reason enough to borrow a crew and ship, I'm afraid. Did you have a destination in mind?
- The Exile: I wish to visit The Sunlit Veil. I hear it is small, and not many live on its beaches. I also have business there, though I will not speak of it.
- Player: You won't talk about it? But you're usually such a chatterbox!
- The Exile: Laugh if you wish. I am past worrying about what others think.
- Player: *sigh* I suppose I have a boat headed that way. If you don't antagonise the crew, I'll let you tag along.
- The Exile: That is satisfactory, naabe. I mean... thank you.
- Player: Did your trip go as you hoped?
- The Exile: I would not wish to live there.
- Player: Isn't it meant to be idyllic? Especially with the music of the seasingers.
- The Exile: The song was the problem. It brought back painful memories. I do not wish to talk of it.
- Player: You know, sometimes it's good to talk about your problems. I might be able to help...
- The Exile: It is not my place to burden you. It is my burden, and I must bear it alone.
- Player: Didn't you say that you no longer had a burden, that you are no longer a worldbearer?
- The Exile: You twist my words... but there is truth within what you say. You have given me something to consider.
The Burden of Guilt[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:The Burden of Guilt.
- The Exile: Your words carried weight with me, naabe. I may no longer be a worldbearer, but I still carry burdens. I need to find a way to rid myself of them.
- Player: Perhaps the Eastern Lands is not for you? There aren't any gorajo here.
- The Exile: How sure are you of that? I have heard rumours of a ramokee trading in The Hook region. Though I came to the east to escape my past, I also came in search of another exile - my brother... If I cannot be a worldbearer for the gorajo of my world, perhaps I can be a worldbearer for him... if I can find him.
- Player: A brother? You should have said sooner. One of my captains has connections in that region. We'll get you there.
- The Exile: I will require only sustenance and a place to lay my head.
- Player: As you wish. I'll make the arrangements.
- The Exile: My thanks, naabe.
- Player: Welcome back. Did you find the other gorajo?
- The Exile: Your captain's contacts were smugglers. They promised to reveal his location if I smuggled jewels for them.
- Player: And you helped them?
- The Exile: For a time. One smuggling trip became another, then another...but they gave me nothing. I reported them to the authorities. They were arrested and executed and I was banished from the island.
- Player: It sounds like they took advantage of you.
- The Exile: I was lucky. I should have been executed with them. It would have been just for my past crimes.
- Player: What past crimes? Something you did back in Daemonheim? You said you weren't ramokee.
- The Exile: And that was no lie. I said that I was not gorajo. I said that I was not ramokee.
- Player: But you were ramokee once? A lie of omission is still a lie.
- The Exile: It is not like that. I do not wish to speak of it.
- Player: I prefer to know about the past of the people in my port - particularly if it threatens my people. If you want to use my ships, you need to tell me.
- The Exile: I understand.
Unburdening the Soul[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Unburdening the Soul.
- The Exile: I wish to apologise. You have shown me kindness and I have deceived you. You deserve to hear of my past. In truth, I do not know what I am.
- Player: Go on...
- The Exile: I was abandoned as a child. My parents could have been gorajo or ramokee. It does not matter. I was found and taken in by a ramokee skinweaver, and she became my challem. She was proud of her ramokee heritage and often would sing of it. Her music brought me much joy. It is her who the sirens reminded me of. My new tribe lived deeper within Daemonheim than any other tribe. We were tolerated - in part - because we numbered but a few, but it was mostly thanks to a deal struck with a man named Hearthen. The worldbearers of my tribe were tasked with carrying his imported wares down from the surface. My brother - my adopted brother - was our tribe's only bloodrager, and he was the one who dealt with Hearthen. He and the rest of our tribe would protect our caravan on the journey back down, but on one such trip, the caravan was ambushed. Everyone was killed, their throats slit. I...I survived, and I believe my brother did too. I have heard rumours that he fled to the east. I believe he is working in The Scythe region. Please, would you allow me use of one of your ships?
- Player: Yes, of course. You have my leave. Go find him.
- The Exile: Thank you, Portmaster.
- Player: Did you find your brother?
- The Exile: It was him...but he is no longer family to me.
- Player: Tell me what happened.
- The Exile: We embraced at first and shared in our loss. But he has twisted his pain into something dark. As a bloodrager, he should be protecting his tribe, but those he runs with, he bullies. He has styled himself a mercenary, hiring out his services.
- Player: I'm sorry to hear that.
- The Exile: He said I should join him, be family again. At first, I wanted to, but...he wanted me to hurt someone, to prove my loyalty to him. He told me it was my new role, that I should join him as an 'Endbringer'. We do not use that role anymore - it is one the gorajo have long abandoned. I am a worldbearer. I carry the burdens of others, I do not cause harm to them! He has lost his way. I shall not bear his shame.
- Player: I'm sorry things didn't turn out how you'd hoped. Thank you for telling me your story.
- The Exile: There is more of my story I wish to share with you, if you wish to hear it, but some other time.
Blood from a Stone[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Blood from a Stone.
- Player: How are you today?
- The Exile: I feel better. My mind is clearer. But something has been bothering me since I met with my brother. I wonder now how he survived the massacre.
- Player: Don't you know? Weren't you with them when it happened?
- The Exile: I...I was not, and it is my great shame...my guilt. Our last burden for Hearthren was to carry a load of strange black stones to the very bottom of Daemonheim.
- The Exile: I was afraid of going that deep - the voices are everywhere, and their words entice dark thoughts. I...I was afraid...and so I hid. I was a coward.
- The Exile: I waited alone for a long time, waited for my tribe to return to camp. When I finally plucked up enough courage to go looking for them, I found only their bodies.
- The Exile: My challem still held on to life for a time - she told me to seek out my brother. I thought she had meant for our survival, as family, but now I wonder...
- Player: Why do you wonder about your brother now?
- The Exile: His actions in these Eastern Lands. He seems to have fallen into his new mercenary life so easily. The pain he inflicts on his men appeared to come to him as a second nature.
- Player: I'm afraid I may have some bad news on that front. I have reports of a group of mercenaries wreaking havoc on the Isle of Juniper.
- The Exile: I understand. I must go to him. Perhaps I can curtail his violent ways.
- Player: What happened out there?
- The Exile: The creatures of the Isle of Juniper are poor, defenceless creatures - more docile than any mastyx. And yet my brother was killing them, taking neither hides nor meat. He was...enjoying it!
- Player: What? Why would anyone do something like that?
- The Exile: He was paid to do it! Paid to wantonly kill innocent beasts. He said it was his role, given to him by his contractor.
- The Exile: And when I confronted him about what happened to our tribe, his answer was so cruel and brazen.
- The Exile: He did not survive the massacre - he perpetrated it! He would have killed me too had I been there. Had I not hid...
- Player: Why would he do that?
- The Exile: Our last job for Hearthen - the black stones. Once complete, we were to be tolerated no more, so that no other would hear of these stones. He bargained to be the hand to silence us in exchange for his own life.
- The Exile: My family; my challem - I long to be with them again. I cannot go on with this knowledge - it is too much to bear. I wish it to end!
- Player: No. You're a worldbearer. Carry this burden!
- The Exile: Every day I continue to live has been paid for with the life of one of my tribe. I am not worthy of them. I should have died alongside them!
- Player: You've got to snap out of this! Your brother needs to be stopped, and I'm going to need your help to do it. Maybe you SHOULD become Endbringer - his!
- The Exile: No, I cannot!
- Player: Did you at least find out something that might help us stop him?
- The Exile: I...maybe. The man who hired him - his contractor - he is called Kakashi.
Weight On, Weight Off[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Weight On, Weight Off.
- Player: Exile, how are you feeling?
- The Exile: I feel good, Portmaster. It will take some time to come to terms with my brother's betrayal, but I have vowed to not give up. At least not until his crimes are paid for.
- Player: You seek revenge?
- The Exile: I seek justice. And death is the justice he deserves, but I will not be the one to exact it.
- Player: Why? Because you're a worldbearer and he's a bloodrager?
- The Exile: In part. I am not strong enough....but I am also not worthy. I was a coward when I hid, and a coward again when finding him.
- The Exile: I sensed his guilt deep down, but refused to believe myself. My challem tried to tell me, but I allowed grief to blind me.
- The Exile: And above all, I am no warrior. He would crush me before I could capture him.
- Player: I think I could maybe help you out with that...
- The Exile: You would teach me how to fight?
- Player: I can do one better. I can arrange for you to spend some time with the Gu - they have a temple on Ashihama. There are no better warriors in the Wushanko Isles. I think you're going to get a lot out of their tutelage.
- The Exile: Thank you, Portmaster.
- Player: How was your visit to Ashihama?
- The Exile: At first, they got me cleaning, carrying, cooking and serving. These things I have done all my life, as is the role of a worldbearer.
- The Exile: I was confused at first. Why were they just giving me such burdens, treating me like a worldbearer? They were supposed to be teaching me how to fight! The more burdens they gave me, the more my impatience grew.
- The Exile: When one of the Gu masters asked me to massage his feet...I snapped.
- Player: And so they just sent you back here?
- The Exile: No. The Gu master said that now my training could begin! The Gu have wisdom about a great many subjects, but the thing they taught me most about was myself. They said I had to unlearn my past before I could learn anew.
- The Exile: They taught me that I have not been a worldbearer for a long time, and that all I have lived to this point has already prepared me.
- Player: So what do I call you now?
- The Exile: The gorajo do not take names; they are their purpose. But I am not gorajo. The ramokee struggle alone; they are without purpose. But I am not ramokee.
- Player: So what are you?
- The Exile: I may be alone, but I have a singular purpose. I am Honovi! The name I take from an animal of our home. The honovi is a gentle creature, but is said to have an inner strength. It treads lightly on the world so as not to disturb it, but fiercely protects its own if endangered.
- Player: The Gu have told me that you are welcome back to train with them anytime you wish.
- The Exile: I shall continue to learn from them; I am still some way from the strength of my brother. One day, I shall be ready to face him. For now, I thank you once again...challem.
Trio Story Voyages[edit | edit source]
Lament of the Sea[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Lament of the Sea.
- Player: I've brought you together because you've had dealings with Kakashi. I knew there was something familiar about him, and I've asked around. Kakashi means 'scarecrow' in the west - the man's real name is Davosi. He helped the war god Bandos create a god-killing weapon, but Bandos was defeated and killed by the god Armadyl. That explains why Davosi is not a fan of birds, at least.
- Shanao: (mumble)
- The Tengu: We're not exactly fans of him either! We have a spy in his ranks - Benkei - who's informed me that Kakashi is building a weapon. It could be similar to the god-killing weapon you speak of.
- Player: The last Scarecrow weapon was powered by divine energy.
- The Memory: Oh! Is that what he wanted me for? He wanted my energy to power a weapon? That's horrible!
- The Exile: You are safe here, little cub.
- The Memory: I'm not a cub! Honestly, I'm older than you are...sort of.
- The Exile: Why am I here, Portmaster?
- Player: Kakashi still has your brother in his employ. There must be a link between the sea creatures your brother has been killing and the weapon Kakashi is building.
- The Exile: Perhaps they are testing the weapon by killing these sea creatures.
- Player: A weapon like this would be powerful enough to kill a god, potentially. I doubt they'd waste its energy to kill animals. No, there's something more going on. I need the three of you to work together to find out Kakashi's plan. We need to know where this weapon is, how he intends to power it and, most importantly, what he plans to use it on.
- The Tengu: I know of seasingers in a place called Light under Sea who live among sea creatures as if they were their own. Perhaps they will know more of why Kakashi is having sea creatures killed...
- Player: Good, then you three should head there now.
- Player: How did it go?
- The Tengu: Kakashi was already attacking the seasingers when we arrived! At the sight of us, he turned and ran - the coward - but we got to see his plan in action.
- The Exile: He doesn't care about the seasingers. He just wants to kill sea creatures...but he wasn't just killing them, he was draining them!
- Player: What do you mean draining them?
- The Exile: Draining their life force. To the seasingers, the sea creatures are not monsters - they refer to them as 'kami'.
- The Memory: Kami? That's what they called me! I thought it was just a name, but... Oh! My energy and the sea creatures' is the same - they must be made of anima too!
- Player: So that is how Kakashi is powering his weapon...by harvesting their energy.
- The Exile: That is sickening!
- Player: Did you learn anything else?
- The Tengu: The seasingers mentioned another word when talking of Kakashi - 'Kami-shima'. They were scared, but they would not tell us who or what it was.
- The Exile: Whatever it is, it must be linked to the sea creatures and their anima.
- The Memory: I fear that if Kakashi finds out something even worse is going to happen.
Gu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Gu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain.
- The Tengu: My companions, we need to discover what this 'Kami-shima' is that the seasingers mentioned. There is one group of people who know more about the history of Wushanko than any other.
- Player: Your creators, the Gu? I thought you carried all their knowledge.
- The Tengu: Not all. Even they have secrets to keep - information that they wanted to be forgotten, that they wanted to lose.
- Player: Then a voyage to the Tengu Archipelago is in order. I'll make arrangements.
- The Memory: I should go with him! I am better able to explain matters of anima and divination. No offence, Sojobo.
- The Tengu: None taken, little wren.
- The Exile: What of me?
- Player: I have something else in mind for you, Honovi; I need you to meet up with Benkei. Sojobo will be busy with the Gu, but we need to know more about Kakashi's plans.
- The Tengu: I'll send a coded message and have Benkei meet you on Bladewing Crag, so he knows he can trust you.
- The Exile: I will not fail you, challem.
- Player: How was your audience with the Gu?
- The Memory: They heard our pleas and, though they were reluctant to impart this information, they told us about Kami-shima.
- The Tengu: This one was most convincing. They saw the shared kinship between her and the seacreatures.
- The Memory: Kami-shima is an island - a hidden island in The Shield! It's where all the sea creatures come from - it's their source!
- The Tengu: The island is shrouded in protective wards, and surrounded by a barrier of anima. The Gu sought to keep its existence hidden, to protect the sea creatures.
- Player: Hmm... Maybe this explains some of why there are no gods in this part of the world.
- The Memory: Yes, it is protected! By the world itself!
- The Exile: Then I am afraid my own news is worse than I thought. I went to meet with Benkei, but when I found him he was already dead - his throat slit. My brother's handiwork, no doubt.
- The Memory: Kakashi must have discovered he was a spy - he'll know that we're coming for him!
- The Exile: Benkei had a note hidden on his person. In it, he says that my brother has raised a mercenary army! Kakashi will have a fleet of ships and troops to protect him.
- Player: This is not good.
- The Exile: It gets worse. Kakashi is proudly telling his troops that he has divined the location of Kami-shima. He plans to use it as a power source for his weapon.
- The Memory: That's crazy! He'd drain the entire island just to build a weapon? He's insane! Why would anyone do that?
- The Exile: That was Benkei's final word - the target.
- Player: Who? Who is his target?
- The Exile: You, challem. He intends to kill you.
- The Tengu: Why all this trouble just to kill one man/woman?
- The Memory: Because he/she's the World Guardian!
- Player: Please, all of you, I need to consider this. I'll call you all back once my captains have located Kami-shima.
Guardians of the World[edit | edit source]
The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Guardians of the World (voyage).
- Player: Welcome back, everyone. My captains have discovered Kami-shima, at the furthest edge of The Shield. If they didn't know how to divine its location, they'd never have found it.
- The Tengu: Do we have a plan?
- Player: Davosi, Kakashi - whatever he's calling himself - I have to go and face him. For whatever reason, he wishes to kill me.
- The Memory: No! You can't! You're the one person who CAN'T face him!
- The Exile: She is right. It is what he wants. If you go, he will fire the weapn for sure.
- The Tengu: You must leave this to us. Allow a dying hero his swan song. We shall not fail.
- Player: We don't even know if this weapon will affect me. Guthix made me resistant to godly magics. You should know this better than anyone, Kami.
- The Memory: You might resist gods, but can you absorb a planet's worth of energy? And what if Kakashi isn't converting it to magic? It could overload you with anima.
- Player: Is that even possible?
- The Memory: That's just it - we don't know what could happen. But if you go, we'll find out at the expense of the world. I'm[sic] won't ALLOW you to go!
- The Exile: You have proven your courage many times over; allow me to show the courage you helped me find.
- The Memory: We will have aid of the seasingers - they can keep Kakashi's fleet occupied while we land on the island.
- The Tengu: And the Gu will send their warriors to fight beside us on the island.
- Player: And what of the bloodrager and Kakashi?
- The Exile: The bloodrager - *spit* - he is mine. I know not if I am ready for him, but the spirits of my tribe stand at my back.
- The Tengu: And I shall face Kakashi once again. The scarecrow doesn't scare this bird!
- Player: And the weapon?
- The Memory: I...I will deal with it. I will try to absorb its power...or channel it back to its source.
- The Exile: No! Little cub, it is too dangerous. I will not lose more family.
- The Memory: It's MY decision. Why do I have to keep reminding you all? I'm not a child! This world created me to protect it, and that's exactly what I'll do - even if it kills me.
- Player: And I'm not going to talk you out of this? Any of you?
- The Tengu: Haha, no!
- The Exile: No, challem.
- The Memory: Not a chance.
- Shanao: (mumble)
- The Tengu: And besides, Shanao just reminded me - I drugged your drink. You'll be unconscious in a moment. Let's head to the ship!
- The Tengu: Haha! It is done! Kakashi is defeated!
- The Memory: And the weapon is destroyed!
- The Exile: Kami-shima is safe once more.
- Player: I can't believe you drugged me.
- The Memory: We had to make sure you wouldn't follow us.
- Player: Regardless, I'm glad you're all back, and safe. What happened?
- The Tengu: It was a true battle of legend! We fought on sea, on land...in the skies!
- The Memory: The island itself came alive to aid us! Before our eyes sprang into being strange creatures to protect us, and to fight Kakashi and his mercenaries!
- The Tengu: I know of these creatures from Gu folklore - they are shi-guardian lions! They were ferocious. Kakashi never stood a chance - his death was a great victory for justice!
- Player: And the bloodrager?
- The Exile: Captured. He will pay for his crimes. Carrying all my burdens made me stronger than I realised; the teachings of the Gu gave me the courage I needed to wield it.
- The Memory: You would have been proud of her, World Guardian. She lifted him right over her head!
- Player: The weapon?
- The Memory: Destroyed! I managed to return its energy back into the island, but...some of it stayed with me. It's connected us all to Kami-shima.
- Player: What does that mean?
- The Tengu: The island has made us its guardians! Just being there has reinvigorated Shanao! He feels as spry as a young bird of eighty again! You should have seen him soar!
- Player: I'm proud of all of you, but does this mean...
- The Memory: Goodbye? No, silly. We'll all still visit! Who else is going to keep an eye on you?
- The Exile: And where would I be without the counsel of my challem?
- The Tengu: And I'll always need someone to play pranks on!
- Shanao: (mumble)
- Player: Hahahahaha! Oh, Shanao!
