Sorrowdusk Isle[edit]

Grey Moon Waning[edit]

Talking to him while you don't have the Grey Moon Waning chain, will make him say:

  • Bruku: The ogre elder glowers at you, his gazer dark, then looks away. You are clearly beneath his notice.

The Iron Mines: Freeing Achka[edit]

After talking to Kurvic the Hound, when you talk to him, he will say:

  • Bruku: Stop there! You come closer, Bruku split your head open, feed your brains to crows!
    • You: Easy now. I'm a friend.
      • Bruku: Friend? Phah! Not many men call themselves friends to ogre-kin. Come with swords and fire, try to drive Grey Moon tribe off island. Been so since my longfathers' time, a dragon's age ago. Why should Bruku trust you?
        • You: Because Kurvic the Hound sent me.
          • Bruku: Kurvic ... ah! Yes, Bruku remember. Hurt something bad, that one ... wounds nearly kill him. But Bruku find him, and help heal. Ogre-kin should not be jackals, to let men die in pain. We are better than that. But why Kurvic send you?
            • You: He told me there was trouble among your people.
              • Bruku: Bad trouble. Old Hragg was chief, but trolls drove us from our caves. Hragg lead Grey Moon to new caves, other side of island ... but ogre-kin were not happy. His sister-son Grust overthrew him, drove Bruku out. Is dark time for tribe.
              • You: I will help you fight Grust.
              • Bruku: Not yet. Grust is keeping chief's son, Achka, as hostage. Go to tribe's new cave. Is west of here, on uphill side. Grust is out hunting on far side of island—he not trouble you. You find Achka in prison, free him. Then come back here, and we plain next step. (Advance chain)
            • You: To bring your chief back to power. (See below: "You'll trust me if you want your tribe back")
        • You: You'll trust me if you want your tribe back.
          • Bruku: You come to help Grey Moon? Bruku stares at you, his eyes glittering. Yes, Bruku knows you now. Spirits of ancestors come in dream, tell of one who come from across water, defeat Grust. Bruku think spirits mean Kurvic, but no ... it clear now. They mean you.
            • You: Who is Grust?
              • Bruku: Grust is usurper of Grey Moon, sister-son of Lord Hragg. He take over tribe after trolls drive us from caves. Drove out Bruku for speaking against him. Bruku lip curls with disgust. He like snake living under rock, that one.
              • You: The traitor deserves death.
              • Bruku: Not yet. Grust is keeping chief's son, Achka, as hostage. Go to tribe's new cave. Is west of here, on uphill side. Grust is out hunting on far side of island—he not trouble you. You find Achka in prison, free him. Then come back here, and we plain next step. (Advance chain)
            • You: What has happened to Grey Moon? (See above: "He told me there was trouble among your people.")
    • You: Be silent, brute! Or you'll be the one with the broken skull!
      • Bruku: Hah! You talk like Lord Hragg, Grey Moon's clan-chief. He like wolverine, never back away from battle. But Bruku is wise, he see you not want to fight. Least not here, not now. Who sent you to Sorrowdusk?
        • You: Kurvic the Hound. He said to find you. (see above)
        • You: If you want Hragg as your chief again, you'll help me. (See above: "You'll trust me if you want your tribe back")

Talking to him after acquiring the quest, but before completion, will make him say:

  • Bruku: What! Achka not free yet? You go to tribe's new cave, free Achka! Then come back here, not before!

The Iron Mines: Justice for Grust[edit]

After you complete Freeing Achka, he will reply:

  • Bruku: Bruku hear from Lord Hragg. He grateful you free Achka, but ogre-kin stay loyal to Grust. He got them scared to follow true chief.
    • You: What more can I do?
      • Bruku: Grust back from hunting now. You go back to caves and kill him. Hragg take tribe back then. When grust dead, you come back to Bruku ... we drink palm-beer to celebrate! (Advance quest)
    • You: They'll stop following the dog if he's dead.
      • Bruku: ????????????????

Talking to him after acquiring the quest, but before completion, will make him say:

  • Bruku: You got something in your ear? Bruku tell you already ... next thing, kill Grust. When done, come back here. Not before!

The Grey Moon's Den: The Trollish Scourge[edit]

After you complete Justice for Grust, he will reply:

  • Bruku: Is it done? Did you kill Grust?
    • You: Yes, he's dead. But there's something more.
      • Bruku: What more? What else happen?
      • You: There were trolls in the caves too. They were with Grust. Why?
      • Bruku: Trolls? Bruku blinks, then his mouth drops open. It make sense now, yes. Grust make bargain with trolls—they get Grey Moon's ancestral caves, he get tribe. the snake! Death was too good for him!
        • You: Now that he's gone, they'll come for what's left of your tribe.
          • Bruku: Bruku know. Only one thing to do now. You go to Grey Moon's old caves, on east side of island. Finish trolls before they know what happen. Kill them all, leave none alive! And if any ogre-kin there, kill them too, the traitors! Then come back and tell me. (Advance quest)
        • You: We must take the fight to them, before they recover.
          • Bruku: ?????????????
    • You: Of course. Now you'd better tell me the truth. Why were there trolls with him?
      • Bruku: ??????????????

Talking to him after acquiring the quest, but before completion, will make him say:

  • Bruku: Trolls still in Grey Moon's ancestor-caves! Go to east side of island! Not waste Bruku's time!

After you complete The Trollish Scourge, he will reply:

  • Bruku: Bruku smell troll-blood on you. You done at caves?
  • You: Your people are avenged. The trolls are howling in Dolurrh now.
  • Bruku: No, not all. More in deep holes, beneath ancestor-caves. Spirits show Bruku, in dream! They keep breeding, send more to take caves back, unless you kill them too! Now go finish what you start! Back to ancestor caves, but go deeper this time! (Advance chain)

  • You: It wasn't just trolls, though. There were others. Dark clerics.
  • Bruku: Dark clerics? Broken stones! As I fear—cult of the Dark Six return to Sorrowdusk.
  • You: Then there's still more to be done, isn't there?
  • Bruku: True. More to be done, aye, but Grey Moon have old power back now. That a victory, at least. You choose reward from Grey Moon treasure horde—it yours by right of battle! Then talk to Bruku again and we speak of what comes next.
