I just remembered the Khajiit noble on the Woodhearth docks in Greenshade. He's casually reading a book and when you talk to him he says "This one should buy a boat."

Good lord.

One of the random quotes from one of the drunk Nord women that I find funny: "Here's the thing-- I-I forget the thing."

It isn't just the guards!

The language can get pretty colorful - one that keeps coming up in my mind is "By Stendarr's sweaty sword arm!" (spoken by Merric after the final quest).

And of course, the frequent references by the Argonians to the river when speaking of the passage of time - I love this analogy!



Ooh, I haven't heard the "river" one!!!


QUOTE(Grits @ Dec 11 2016, 11:45 AM) *

Here's one that Jerric never gets tired of hearing:

"Dog's filth! You anger a powerful enemy."

Ha ha, yeah, that's right I did! viking.gif



Molag Bal!!! I like that one too, lol.



QUOTE(haute ecole rider @ Dec 11 2016, 06:43 PM) *

In addition to the game's colorful language (typically very lore-friendly, too), I love how the voices are done. After spending time in the Fighter's Guild quest line with Aelif and Colors, and Wrothgar with all the Orsimer, I've come to enjoy the variety of female voices I've come across, as well as their speaking cadences and what not.

The different voices are much more noticeable to me than in Skyrim or Oblivion, where (*gasp*) it sounds like the same two or three voices over and over again (I know, I know, it IS !!).


Agreed!







QUOTE(Grits @ Dec 11 2016, 10:39 PM) *

The NPCs are fantastic in this game. I continue to be touched and impressed by them.

And amused. There's a female who hangs out near the Orsinium Wayshrine that I'll have to write down what she says the next time I'm there. She's giving her drunk male friend a hard time, justifiably it seems!


I have to stop and listen for this one, I have missed it somehow!

I've heard this in passing before, but I thought it was funny how Eolan got it frequently from the Nord under the Windhelm bridge while the other characters didn't even get it once when they participated in the event.

Pressure sensitivity on my tablet refuses to work today idk.



I heard that while passing nearby the Windhelm stables, laugh.gif

Is it just Khajiit, or is everyone in Windhelm drunk?



They are all Nords, what did you expect? rollinglaugh.gif





QUOTE(TheCheshireKhajiit @ Jan 31 2017, 10:31 PM) *

Not really an NPC per say but Khajiit found this little nugget from woodworking hireling Pacrooti to be hilarious:
"Today Pacrooti heard a voice say 'Khajiit! I need your help!' He turned around and saw a toad. The toad said 'I've been cursed by an evil mage. The curse will be broken if you kiss me. I will turn back into a beautiful maiden.' Pacrooti put the toad in his pocket. He can get a lot of gold for a talking frog."



rollinglaugh.gif



QUOTE(hazmick @ Feb 1 2017, 07:44 AM) *

You get new hirelings every so often. Pacrooti is the Khajiit who deals with crown crates though, so you can see him any time you want.

Haa-Rei just unlocked Gavin Gavonne, the provisioner hireling. He's one of our favourites:

"I hope these provisioner components reach you in a timely manner. I got turned about in a strange swamp and lost one boot to the mud. The nearest wayshrine was a short walk, but a very long hop."


laugh.gif - and Oh! I didn't realize they switched out!




QUOTE(Acadian @ Feb 1 2017, 08:46 AM) *

Most any Nord: "I need another drink like I need a head in the hole."



I've heard that one too!

Quite a few Dremora women call you 'Little Mortal' and it seems very fitting for Buffy, after being erroneously called hero, champion and other things that conflict with her size and appearance such as 'You look like someone who can fight', etc. Lol.

The actual quote above is from Lyranth during the Coldharbour quest where you jump down into a pit and help Skordo and some other Fighters Guildies escape. https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Online:Truth,_Lies,_and_Prisoners

Oh, Azura and some of the other Daedric Princes do also refer to you as 'Little Mortal' I think. smile.gif

Oh, that is interesting! I actually didn't remember that Fighters Guild quest at all, it has been a while since I did it, lol.

I laughed out loud when I heard it! He fits right in at that festival.


Acadian, Jerric has been called "little mortal" a few times lately as he's questing again in Coldharbour. He always smiles and thinks of Buffy. happy.gif


Jerric is frequently baffled by the ruling class.

High King Emeric: “I must confess - I had hoped to meet you one day. We sharpen our blades on the same whetstone, if you take my meaning.”

Jerric: huh.gif

Grits: (He’s not hitting on you.)

Jerric: huh.gif

Grits: (He’s not bedding someone you know.)

Jerric: huh.gif

Grits: (You don’t have to take his meaning. Just say something Breton.)

Jerric: “It’s an honor, Your Majesty.”
