Meeting Gorn (EN)

1 Posted by - June 11, 2013 - Scripts, Work Samples

In Arcania: Gothic 4 we used branching dialogs that were displayed like mini cutscenes. What you can read here is a short dialog sample between Gorn and the new nameless hero.

HERO
I want to see the Baron!

GORN
(Laughs)

HERO
What’s so funny, then?

GORN
Look, lad, the Baron’s the Baron. He doesn’t see just anyone. Why should he see you?

HERO
I need to get to the Valley of Blood and need his permission.

GORN
(Laughs) You want to fight in the Valley of Blood? You? You ain’t even got any muscles!

HERO
I don’t want to fight, I want to get to the Silver Lake.

GORN
Forget it, lad. I ain’t letting anyone through – you neither.

GORN
But … wait a moment. I’ve seen you somewhere before … Ain’t you the boy from Feshyr, the one that came to Argaan with Diego?

**************************************************************

HERO
What does that have to do with you?

GORN
Listen lad – if you keep talkin’ that way, you’re gonna get a fat lip. I’ve not got just the axe – I’ve got me knuckles too!

**************************************************************

HERO
You know Diego?

GORN
(Laughs) Surprised? Diego is a mate of mine. A good and old friend. Told me about you, he did, before they locked ‘im up.

HERO
Diego’s locked up?

GORN
Hard to believe, ain’t it? Usually I’m the one locked up and he gets me out. Now it’s the other way around. Would you help me?

HERO
What’s your plan?

GORN
My plan? I don’t need a plan. I’ve got my axe!

GORN
But Diego told me that I should wait. He thinks it’ll take care of itself. Go down to the dungeon and talk to him. Maybe he’ll have changed his mind.

HERO
Can I get in just like that?

GORN
Tell Aldrich, the guard, that I sent you. Tell him that if he doesn’t let you through, he’ll get a smack in the gob!
