HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: I've brought an old mate of mine along for this job. Her name's Tullina.

: --but she can get into places no one else can.
HeistTullinaIntroduceNenet
HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: Before we set off, I'd like to introduce you to an associate of mine. This is Nenet.
: I am Nenet.
: See? She's got better eyesight than anyone I know.
: I can see a man's heart beat it's last from a distance of two thrown stones.
: I believe she will be an asset in the future.
HeistVinderiIntroduceGianna
HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: Exile this is... This is...
: Gianna.
: Gianna! Yes! And she's a... erm...
: Performer. Actress.
: A performer actress! Right! And... ehhh...
: We met when Vinderi was hired to do the pyrotechnics for a production. He set the curtains on fire, but no one died. I'm here to help you with this job. And other jobs, later. If you want.
: Exactly! Anything you'd like to add Gianna?
: I think that covers it. Thanks, Vin.
HeistKarstIntroduceHuck
HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: Forgot to tell ya, bringing this lug with us on this job.
: I'm Huck.
: He's an absolute nutter. Ain't ya Huck?
: Not really? I suppose the Blackguard training did leave me a bit... rough.
: Absolute nutter. But useful.
HeistHuckIntroduceNiles
HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: Thought we might be able to use another hand on this one. Meet Niles.
: You don't like me, I can tell.
: He used to be an interrogator for the Templar. Can read minds a little bit.
: Now you really don't like me. Why is that, I wonder?
: Just remember that he's very useful. I find that helps.
HeistNilesIntroduceVinderi
HeistNewNPCIntroduction
: Exile, this is Vinderi. Expert demolitionist.
: Nice to meet you, Vinderi. My name's Vinderi too! Isn't that funny?
: Years of exposure to fumes has... affected him.
: Sorry to hear that. Luckily I'm fiddle as a fit!
HeistTullinaTibbsEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Only do what's essential. Anything else makes you a bigger target.
: Not sure I could be a much bigger target...
HeistTullinaTibbsEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Nerves are gettin' to me again.
: Try not to focus on how badly everything could go and how hurt everyone could get. Better?
HeistTullinaKarstEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Remember, look out for each other when we get in there.
: Yeah. Unless things get bad, then scramble.
HeistTullinaKarstEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: 'Ey Lina --
: Tullina
: -- you got spare picks just in case, right?
:  Yep. All good.
HeistTullinaIslaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Keep it down when we're in there. That means no unexpected explosions, Isla.
: Pfft. It was hardly unexpected. Just early!
HeistTullinaIslaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Tullina, how do you feel about having large, electrified metal rods jutting from your spine?
: Strongly disfavourable.
: What about your skull?
: That isn't better.
: Got it. Legs it is.
HeistTullinaVinderiEntry1
HeistEnterContract
:  Everyone know what they're doing?
: For the job? Or just generally...? I s'pose the answer to both is no, really.
HeistTullinaVinderiEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Who would like to hear my bordello story?
: No-one say yes.
: I promise it is very, very graphic.
: No-one say yes.
HeistTullinaNenetEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Any words of wisdom before we head in, Nenet?
: The dead own nothing and feel nothing.
: ... Good. Good advice. Thank you.
HeistTullinaNenetEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Time passes through us like a ghost.
: ...So should we hurry?
: There is no speed great enough to escape death.
: So... Yes?
HeistTullinaNilesEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Good luck, everyone.
: Luck is just another word for faith, which we all know is meaningless. You're telling everyone good nothing right now.
HeistTullinaNilesEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Tullina, might I slip into that brain of yours for just a moment? I wish to feel lithe. Provocative.
: Do you also wish to feel a dagger in your eye socket? No? There's your answer.
HeistTullinaHuckEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Remember what Huck says: Heads on a pike--
: --On a swivel--
: On a swivel.
HeistTullinaHuckEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Stay alert, stay safe.
: And stay out of my way.
HeistTullinaGiannaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Kill any guards you come across quick.
: Uh, yeah, but make sure it isn't actually me.
HeistTullinaGiannaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Tullina...?
: Mmhm?
: Are we... are we friends?
: What? Yeah, I guess. Whatever.
:
HeistTullinaTibbsExit1
HeistExitContract
: Near-flawless execution. Be proud.
: Agreed. I've seen how bad it can get.
: The burning pond?
: The burning pond.
HeistTullinaTibbsExit2
HeistExitContract
: A near-unbelievable success!
: And barely any spiders are on you this time!
HiestTullinaAdiyahExit1
HeistExitContract
: Adiyah, get us home to a cold drink and a warm fire.
: I can get you to a stale mead and several scattered lanterns. Will that suffice?
: It will.
HeistTullinaAdiyahExit2
HeistExitContract
: Another victory for crime.
: Oh, come on Adiyah. I can see you holding back a smile.
: No. That was... That was about something else. Please return now.
HeistTullinaIslaExit1
HeistExitContract
: That went as smooth as could realistically be expected.
: Smooth... Smooth... Hey, Tullina, what about a helmet that dissolves your hair while you wear it?
: ...I need less of you right now.
HeistTullinaIslaExit2
HeistExitContract
: We probably shouldn't dilly-dally.
: Dare I ask why not?
: No reason. Totally unrelated, how upset would you be if everything you owned was shredded by a rogue mechanical spider?
: Oh no.
HeistTullinaVinderiExit1
HeistExitContract
: Everyone in one piece?
: No, we're all still quite separate.
: I mean, is everyone healthy?
: Not the people down stairs...
HeistTullinaVinderiExit2
HeistExitContract
: I always get a little sad when a job like this ends.
: It's alright, Vinderi. There will be more.
: I know, I know... But I really enjoyed this one.
HeistTullinaGiannaExit1
HeistExitContract
: I can already tell I'll be sore tomorrow.
: That reminds me! Tullina, I simply must know your workout regiment. Your core is to die for.
HeistTullinaGiannaExit2
HeistExitContract
: A stellar performance! Five stars! Two thumbs up!
: Worth the price of entry, that's for sure!
HeistTullinaNenetExit1
HeistExitContract
: Excellent teamwork, everyone.
: By our unity, we escaped with our lives.
: ... Yeah. Great work all round.
HeistTullinaNenetExit2
HeistExitContract
: The snakes leave the rabbit's nest bare and barren.
: You should write that down, Nenet. That was beautiful.
: I do not have a diary, and do not dare look for it!
HeistTullinaNilesExit1
HeistExitContract
: Let's get back and enjoy the fruits of our labour.
: Oh, how one quivers with anticipation at the thought of such sweet fruits.
HeistTullinaNilesExit2
HeistExitContract
: Glorious, glorious, glorious. I sup the wine of victory from fate's breast.
: What... vivid imagery.
: When we return, I shall paint it for you. A gift.
: Please don't.
HeistTullinaHuckExit1
HeistExitContract
: That was one I'll be telling my kids about.
: Seems irresponsible to tell your kids about your robberies.
: Hmm. You're right. That was one I'll never tell my kids about.
HeistTullinaHuckExit2
HeistExitContract
: I love it when a plan comes together.
: Savour it. It doesn't happen all that often!
HeistTullinaTibbsSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Job looks straightforward enough.
: Easier than the Belltower gig.
: You never were fond of heights.
: Everything's just a bit higher up for me than most people.
: Or spiders.
: All the eyes and legs! Who needs that many?
: Or ghosts.
: What're you supposed to do when a ghost attacks! Kill 'em? They're already bloody dead!
HeistTullinaTibbsSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm packed and ready.
: Gil, always a pleasure.
: Well, maybe not always, eh?
: The Bleakworth Alley job?
: I still have those nightmares. I wake up feeling like I'm covered in spiders.
: Well now we know to look for webs. And eggs. And legs. And, if it happens again, I'll put you out of your misery. Sound good?
: ...Ehh... Thanks, I guess.
HeistTullinaKarstSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Need me?
: Lin!
: Tullina.
: How's the other half doin'?
: It's... complicated. I'd rather we just focus on the job, if you don't mind.
: Got it, Tulls.
: Tullina.
: We'll have a catch-up later, ay?
: I'd like that. Thank you.
HeistTullinaKarstSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Tullina and Karst, together again at last! How ya doin' beautiful.
: A little anxious, but, you know...
: What else is new, eh?
: Exactly.
HeistTullinaIslaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Heard you might need me for a job?
: Only if I can't get my wall-crawler up and running in time.
: That sounds like some sort of horrifying mechanical spider.
: Couldn't be more wrong. It's a brilliant, beautiful mechanical spider.
: ...and you've tested it?
: No, but that's what this is for, right lady Kurai?
: ...This is the first I've heard of your invention. May I suggest you bench it and we review its progress next time?
: Oh... Fine.
: Thank you.
: It's what I'm here for.
HeistTullinaIslaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I've just had the best idea.
: We're actually in the middle of--
: Picture a wall, but completely transparent. You can stand on one side and see everything on the other side, but you can't touch it.
: A window.
: That's--, no, that's different. Windows are different. This is larger and more transparent. You're just not getting it. Just forget about it. What's your thing?
: The heist we're planning?
: Yeah, let's do your thing.
HeistTullinaVinderiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello, all.
: Tullina! I was just talking about you.
: You were?
: Yes. I was just saying to Tullina that I was talking about her.
: ...Huh?
: Just now!
: I don't--
: That reminds me! Did I tell you that I was just talking to Tullina? She says hello.
HeistTullinaVinderiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Greetings one and all!
: Nice to see you, Vinderi.
: Ah! Isla, how are your brilliant inventions?
: Tullina.
: Wonderful. Is that some new slang term?
: No, I'm Tul--
: These plans are absolutely, what was it? Tullina? These plans are tullina, pal!
: It's my na--
: Thank you for introducing me to this tullina new word, Isla.
HeistTullinaGiannaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Can we keep this short?
: Somewhere to be?
: Anywhere but here. Meetings make me fidgety.
: I've always kind of enjoyed them. Feels like I only really get to talk to you during these meetings.
: That can't be true. What about...
: ... about...
: ... Huh. Sorry... If it helps, it's nothing to do with you. I guess I'm not much of a people-person.
HeistTullinaGiannaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello everyone!
: Welcome aboard, Gi.
: Plans look to be progressing nicely. Lady Kurai, while I'm here, has the Boss' schedule opened up at all?
: No.
: Shame... Tullina, would you mind running lines with me later?
: I was planning to take a nap...
: Oh...
: ..but I suppose I can squeeze you in beforehand?
: Hooray! Best friends!
HeistTullinaNenetSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: So what's the play?
: We are to gain entry to this location and take everything we can carry.
: So, the usual.
: Yes. The usual.
HeistTullinaNenetSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I have answered your call.
: Hello, Nenet.
: What business have we?
: Another job is in the works.
: And the plans are complete?
: Not quite, but nearly.
: Then I will watch in silence. Proceed.
HeistTullinaNilesSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hope I didn't keep you waiting.
: What exquisite torture it is to wait for one as beautiful as yourself.
: Niles, do we really need to do this every time?
: Until I wear you down.
: Or, I suppose, until I slit your throat?
: Quiet. Both of you. Tullina, no more threatening Niles. Niles, stop making everyone uncomfortable.
: Ha! I doubt I'm making everyone--
: You are.
: You are.
: So stop.
HeistTullinaNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello, hello... Ah, Tullina!
: Hi Niles.
: What a pleasure to be called into service by your side.
: It wasn't my decision.
: But it remains my pleasure, and for that, I simply must thank you.
: Thank you.
HeistTullinaHuckSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Plans drawn up?
: Mostly. Just some finishing touches.
: The Sin is in the details.
: Don't I know it. The number of times I've seen an operation turn to chaos because we didn't know about a door--
: Or no door.
: --or even a door that is open when we expected it to be closed.
: Well, I'm glad we can discuss doors in such detail.
HeistTullinaHuckSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Team.
: Huck.
: Tullina.
:
: What's ne--
: So how's--
: You go--
: Sorry, you were--
: I was just going to ask--
: What I was trying to--
: I--
: You--
: How about we just have a little quiet time, hmm?
: Thanks Kurai.
: ...Thanks Kurai, yeah, thank you.
HeistTullinaKuraiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm here. Plans all drawn up?
: Doing that as we speak. Did you want any input?
: If you're overseeing them, I'm not too worried. Any word from the Boss?
: Nothing specific, but he is aware of this operation, and he wishes us good fortune.
: Good.
HeistTullinaKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Welcome, Tullina.
: Thanks, Ku. What's the latest?
: New contracts are coming in steadily, but today we're planning something larger.
: A blueprint.
: Mmhm. The latest information indicates it will be quite lucrative.
: Well, I'm keen. If you'll have me, that is.
: The boss is always eager to have you involved.
HeistKarstTibbsEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Try not to hit your head on the way in, ay big boy?
: Thanks for the... heads up! ... Nothing?
HeistKarstTibbsEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Good luck everyone.
: Why would you say that!? Now you've definitely jinxed us.
HeistKarstIslaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Oi Isla, what was that word again
: Clandestine.
: Yeah. Let's keep it clamdestine, everyone.
: Even better!
HeistKarstIslaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Got a new word for you, Karst. Taciturn. It means silent.
: Here goes. ...Hear that? No? Taciturn, but deadly.   
HeistKarstVinderiEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Vin, make sure you don't blow any powder near me, yeah?
: Of course. Last time was an anomaly, I swear.
HeistKarstVinderiEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Which way? Ah. Right.
: No, follow the rookie.
: Right!
: No, follow the rookie.
: Right.   
HeistKarstGiannaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Stay loose. Think on your toes.
: Improvisation! Lovely.
HeistKarstGiannaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Stick to the script everyone.
: Was there a script? I didn't get one.
HeistKarstNenetEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: No hard feelins, Nenet. Promise.
: That you felt compelled to say this does not fill me with confidence.
HeistKarstNenetEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Clear skies. A good omen.
: Wish you'd pay that much attention to me.   
HeistKarstNilesEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Gods I hope this goes smoothly.
: No gods will ensure success. That's up to us.
HeistKarstNilesEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Confidence, not cockiness, will ensure success.
: Confidence, not cockiness, will ensure success.
: That is always what an interrogator wanted to hear: his own words repeated back to him with desperation.
HeistKarstHuckEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Things go south in there, it's everyone for themselves.
: How brave, Karst.
HeistKarstHuckEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Focus up everyone. Job comes first.
: Not according to the rumours I heard about you.   
HeistKarstTibbsExit1
HeistExitContract
: Good stuff! Let's celebrate! First round is on Tibbs!
: Fine, but you're only getting pondwater, Karst.   
HeistKarstTibbsExit2
HeistExitContract
: Can't believe we pulled that off. Even Karst did good!
: Even Karst-...? Rude.
HeistKarstGiannaExit1
HeistExitContract
: Time to celebrate, yeah?
: Count me in!
HeistKarstGiannaExit2
HeistExitContract
: Take a bow, everyone!
: And a drink!           
HeistKarstAdiyahExit1
HeistExitContract
: Adiyah, you've never looked more lovely. Take us home, yeah?
: Of course. It is my duty.
HeistKarstAdiyahExit2
HeistExitContract
: Did it go as planned? Any injuries? Karst?
: I'm fine, beautiful! Top o' the world!
HeistKarstIslaExit1
HeistExitContract
: Triumph! Riches!
: New materials to experiment with! I'll turn gold into lead!
: You tryin' to make me angry?
HeistKarstIslaExit2
HeistExitContract
: Anyone got a quill? Had an idea on the run out of here.
: Oi, give your big brain a break, yeah? You earned it.   
HeistKarstVinderiExit1
HeistExitContract
: Dunno 'bout you, but I'm ready to go home and celebrate.
: Celebrate what? What did I miss?
HeistKarstVinderiExit2
HeistExitContract
: Wait, is this where we came in?
: We're done, Vindy-boy! Enjoy it!   
HeistKarstNenetExit1
HeistExitContract
: See that, Nenet? See what you're missin' out on?
: I see everything. Flaws and all.
HeistKarstNenetExit2
HeistExitContract
: Success, but still room for improvement.
: Nothin's ever good enough for you, eh?   
HeistKarstNilesExit1
HeistExitContract
: Make way, Adiyah. Karst needs to pray at the altar of beer.
: At last, a belief system I can get behind.
HeistKarstNilesExit2
HeistExitContract
: Our persistence is rewarded. Even the supposed gods couldn't--
: Oh, give it a rest.   
HeistKarstHuckExit1
HeistExitContract
: Honestly didn't think we'd make it.
: Honestly kind of wish you didn't. Sorry. Too mean. Sorry.
HeistKarstHuckExit2
HeistExitContract
: Messy in parts, Karst, but we got there.
: Why're you singling me out?   
HeistKarstTibbsSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: The big man's here!
: G'day Karst.
: Oh! You're workin' this job too?
: Yeah? Wait, what did you--... No, you know what, nevermind.
: Guess the blood struggles to get all the way up to 'is brain, eh? eh?   
HeistKarstTibbsSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: G'day
: There 'e is. Big boy Tibbs. 
: Do we have to do this every time?
: Oh c'mon. Just havin' a little fun. 
: Fine, get it over with.
: Tibbs is so tall, that he... uh... He's so tall, that... 
: Uh huh?
: Just wait. He's so tall... that...
: ... Look how tall Tibbs is everyone!
: Good try, champ. Now we grownups can focus on the job.
HeistKarstIslaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: 'Ello ello!
: Karst! Did you finish it?
: I, uh, dunno what you're on about.
: The book! Did you get to the end?
: Karst is reading a book?
: Alright, no need to harp on about it. Mosty pictures, anyway.
: Yeah, but it's a great start!
: I said drop it, yeah? Don't need you lot thinkin' I'm the sort of person who reads a book for fun.
HeistKarstIslaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Here I am!
: 'Ere she is! Come to bore all the guards to sleep?
: No, the brain-bore still requires a few small optimisations.
: The-... 
: Oh! Sorry! You were making a joke! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! 
: ... Isla, you making a drill for people's heads? 
: What? No! It's already made. I'm just tweaking it a little.   
HeistKarstVinderiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Oi oi! Knew Vindy'd be on this one. Could smell him from upstairs!
: Ah! Yes! What you're smelling is actually a new powder blend I'm trialling. Eggs and decaying meat, yes?
: And fish. Mostly fish, actually. 
: Fish!? ...Fish. Ah! Right! I've also brought a fish.
: To hide the powder?
: What powder?
: The new blend. You bring a fish to hide the smell?
: What fish?
: ...Maybe best to leave it, yeah?
HeistKarstVinderiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: You needed me?
: 'Ello Vindy. How's old age treatin' you?
: Oh, you know, has its downs and ups. Still tack as a sharp though!   
HeistKarstGiannaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ello everyone. Particularly you, Gianna.
: Keep it in your tights, Karst.
: How about you an' I get ourselves a refreshing beverage after this job, ay? My treat.
: That depends... Are you expecting something in return?
: Only the company of a beautiful young woman.
: I don't think Nenet is all that interested.
: I, uh, meant you.
: Oh Karst, you're such a good thief! You can take anything... but a hint.
HeistKarstGiannaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ahh, my beautiful Gianna. It seems you and I shall be reconnoitering once more!
: I'm... not sure you used that word ri--
: Did you get my gift?
: Oh! Were the roses from you?
: No, the other gift.
: The toffees?
: ...N-...no, the-...
: Aww, did you get me that beautiful gown!?
: No, the-...the, uh... krrshcrrl.
: Sorry?

: I knew you'd love it.   
HeistKarstNenetSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: 'Ello everyone. 
: I greet you, thief.
: Why're we bringing her along?
: Nenet has as much a role as you. Leave personal grievances at the door.
: And your money, if you intend to cheat at cards against me.
: Shut up, Nenet.
: You should have known, with my sharp eyes...
HeistKarstNenetSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Warm greetings to all.
: What?! No one mentioned Nenet joining us.
: Is that going to be an issue?
: Well, I mean--
: My apologies, Kurai. Karst despises me, but I do not care what he thinks, and that has caused him some emotional distress.
: You don't need to--
: I understand. Karst, can you still perform your tasks?
: Yeah, but--
: Good. Nenet?
: Of course, my lady.
: Good. Then let's continue.   
HeistKarstNilesSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm here, I'm here.
: The locksmith. Good, good.
: Lockpick. I don't make 'em, I break 'em.
: Of course. My apologies. I sense ...animosity.
: Oh, what an incredible power! How ever does he do it?
: It is a well-honed talent.
: I'll show you a well-honed talent.
: Karst! Be professional.
: Sorry, Ku.
HeistKarstNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: A job. Splendid.
: No. Not him.
: It is me. 
: No, I'm saying I don't want you along.
: I don't believe that decision is yours to make.
: Luckily for you.
: Indeed! Were it up to me, you would be forever at my side, like a loyal and adoring pup.   
HeistKarstHuckSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ready when you are.
: As am I.
: Karst, have you paid Huck back yet?
: Of course.
: He hasn't, lady Kurai.
: Such a snitch.
: Debts must be repaid. You know that. I'll garnish your fee for this job.
: Fine. 
: Appreciate it, Karst.
HeistKarstHuckSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Team.
: Blackguard.
: Bandit.
: You say that like it's a bad thing.
: That's because it is a bad thing.
HeistKarstKuraiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Lady Kurai...
: Karst.
: Will you be gracing us with your presence on this job?
: I will not.
: What a shame.
: Can you make sure I get an extra cut then?
: I will not.
: Will not, or cannot?
: Will not. 
HeistKarstKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Thank you for coming, Karst. Please make sure you pay attention.
: Eh?
: Pay attention. I don't want a repeat of last time.
: Fine, fine. In my defense, the term bust is really misleading. 
: When have you ever seen a pair of stone breasts on display?
: ...Weeeell--
: Other than your collection.
: Fair point, Lady Kurai. Fair point.   
HeistTibbsIslaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Stick to the plan and this'll be quick and easy.
: That's genius! If we make the plan sticky, we're less likely to drop it. I'll jot that down!
HeistTibbsIslaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Tibbs, can you see me?
: Uhh... Yes.
: Fantastic. My visibility oil works!
: I guess it does!   
HeistTibbsVinderiEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Right, I'm ready. 
: Reddy! I'd always wondered what your first name was. Teddy Ribbs. Got it.
HeistTibbsVinderiEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Sometimes I think about retiring.
: ... But...?
: But what?   
HeistTibbsGiannaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Safety first. If it gets too dangerous, leave.
: Helps to know you're looking out for us, Tibbs.
HeistTibbsGiannaEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: How's my scary voice? You there! I'll break you in half!
: Ehh... Sorry Gianna. Maybe practice that one more.
HeistTibbsNenetEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: It never goes as bad as you expect. Remember that.
: I expect us all to die. Any better than that is a victory.
HeistTibbsNenetEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: There is death on the wind. Beware.
: Not the sort of thing I like hearing before a job.   
HeistTibbsNilesEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Check your gear, say a prayer, whatever you need to do before we go in.
: A prayer? I might as well ask the Solstice Rhoa for an albino egg! Equally absurd!
HeistTibbsNilesEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Tibbs, could you please lower your anxiety? It's seeping into my brain.
: Maybe you shouldn't be snooping around in there.   
HeistTibbsHuckEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Remember the target. Don't get too sidetracked.
: Sound advice for life in general, really.

: Huge success!

HeistTibbsIslaExit1

: Tibbs, are you left or right handed?
: Right... Why?
: So the evil reflection is still at large...
: The--... wait, what?
HeistTibbsIslaExit2
HeistExitContract
: Barely any malfunctions and plenty of data.

: That's a funny word! {Loot}.
HeistTibbsVinderiExit1
HeistExitContract
: I think we've all earned an evening off.
: And if anyone else gets sad when they're alone with their thoughts, I'll be at the bar!
HeistTibbsVinderiExit2

HeistTibbsNenetExit1
HeistExitContract
: I had a terrible feeling about this earlier. So glad I was wrong.
: The day is not done yet. Our 'friends' back home might backstab us to take our spoils.
HeistTibbsNenetExit2
HeistExitContract
: I believed we would face our deaths in there. I am glad to have been wrong.
: Wait... You thought we were going to die?
: Painfully. Yes.
: And you didn't want to tell us?
: I did not see the need.   
HeistTibbsNilesExit1
HeistExitContract
: That could've gone a lot worse!
: And of course it was because of some god's intervention, right? So predictable.
: ...what did I even say to warrant that? Honestly.
HeistTibbsNilesExit2
HeistExitContract
: This was a wondrous return to the glory days of the Templars.
: What do you mean?
: Well, all the killing and mind-crushing. It was... nostalgic.   
HeistTibbsHuckExit1
HeistExitContract
: Nearly more loot than I can carry!
: Definitely more than I could!
: Nah mate, you're strong.

HeistTibbsIslaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: What's the job?
: The usual. Steal ALL of the THINGS!
: My favourite kind. You bringing any new gadgets with us?
: Afraid not. The bone decoupler decoupled itself. The test bone is fine, though there are now several thin metal strips deeply embedded in it. 
: Maybe for the best, eh?
: Gave me an idea for intra-muscular springs. Tibbs, would you like to test something with me after this job?
: ... Can't. Got plans. Very busy.
HeistTibbsIslaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Made it! Had to put out a small fire, but I made it.
: Something you're working on?
: No, sadly someone beat me to that invention a long while ago. And this particular fire completely engulfed my heat-powered-exo-strider. 
: Did you say heat-powered?
: Exo-strider. Yes. Put a few burning embers in the converter and off you stride! Just a prototype made of cheap materials, scrap metal, wood, oil-soaked rags--oh, dammit, Isla! You're better than this.
HeistTibbsVinderiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello everyone.
: Ribs!
: Tibbs.
: Tight! Ribs! Err, right! Tibbs! I've got a new formula for you to try.
: Oh yeah?
: Just like the last one, but I've enriched the quicksilver with Chimeral blood. Really gives it a kick.
: Sounds promising.
: Just don't give it an actual kick.
: Good. I won't. Thank you for the warning.
: Anytibbs, Time.
HeistTibbsVinderiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello, hello, hello!
: How you doing, Vinderi?
: Never better, never better. Spent the last hour in a very enclosed space with far more voltaxic sulphite than I've ever laid eyes on before, and I must say, I do not see what all the fuss was about. So, what's this we're looking at. Some sort of cuboid creature? Where's the heart?
: It's a blueprint, mate.
: Did it step in paint? Can we just trace the prints back and find its nest?
: Plans, Vin. A job.
: Ah! A job! I see it now. Yes. Good. This means I'll need to prepare more sulphite.   
HeistTibbsGiannaSelection1

: Glad to be here.
: Tibbie! Always love a job with you.
: Thanks Gi. How was your date with--
: Uhh, yeah, that was... a mistake.

HeistTibbsGiannaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Fingers crossed this one goes better than our sewer scrape, eh, Tibbie? 
: I've got a change of clothes laid out just in case.
: Did you ever find out where those busts were?
: Shh.

: SHHH.

HeistSelectedForContract
: Am I late?
: No. Early.
: I always worry I'm late, even when I'm early.
: You worry about much. Why is that?
: That... is a really tough question to answer.
: I never worry, because the worst has already happened to me. This isn't even my life. It's just a shadow. Do you worry about stepping on your shadow?
: Wow, Nenet, you're really quite profound. Anyone ever told you that?
: Not my mother, that's for certain.
HeistTibbsNenetSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Selarim to all.
: Nenet, nice to see you.
: I see you also, large man. These plans appear adequate.
: Thank you, Nenet. Can you be of service?

: Forget it.
: I will try.
HeistTibbsNilesSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm up to speed.
: Are you sure? Are there no... large words I should explain to you?
: Niles, do you think I'm stupid because I'm strong?
: Well... Not exactly...
: You think that a strong man cannot be a smart man, eh? The two are somehow mutually exclusive?
: Well--
: You're a mindreader, right? How about you jump on in here and have a look around.
: I-... I rescind my statement. I apologise for my preconceived notions.
HeistTibbsNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm here, no need to make a fuss.
: G'day Niles. 
: And to you. You know, I've always wondered, where do you get your clothes?
: Actually, I make them myself. Started sewing at a young--
: Fascinating. To see a man of your stature wield a sewing needle must truly be something to behold.
: I mean, I can show y--

HeistTibbsHuckSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hey mates.
: Joining us on this job, Tibbs?
: Seems that way.
: That's a relief, honestly. Normally I'm the largest target.

: I look like Kurai next to you!
: Excuse me?
: Nothing, ma'am. Sorry.
: Sorry.
: Sorry.
HeistTibbsHuckSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: 'Ello everyone.
: Hey mate. Hey, how come you're always in your armour, even around here?
: Ah, blackguard training. Never leave yourself undefended. I used to sleep with my blackguard kit on. Got to the point where I couldn't sleep without it.
: You sleep with that armour on too?
: Hah, no, no... I've a lighter chainmail for bedtime.   
HeistTibbsKuraiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Heard you could use a bit of muscle!
: The Boss is always happy to have you involved, Tibbs. How are your nerves?
: Every time, I think I might get used to the stress, but...
: I understand. Please look after yourself.
: Of course, lady Kurai. 
: That includes physically. You start feeling the wear and tear of the work, you tell me, understood?
: Understood.
HeistTibbsKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Welcome, Tibbs.
: Thanks, Ku. How's the Boss doing?
: Busy. Stressed. Worried for the safety of those in his care.

: But then what would we take? Oh, the scrap! Of course!
HeistIslaGiannaEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: I'll be watching your art. I'm not great with people.

HeistIslaGiannaEntry2

: Niles, have you thought about those interrogation devices I suggested?

HeistIslaNilesEntry2

: As you should!

HeistIslaHuckEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: You can rely on my contraptions, Huck! Have no fear!
: Fear keeps a disciplined man alive.
: So does Voltaxic-powered battle armour!
: I'm never going to wear that infernal thing, Isla. Stop asking, I beg of you.
: That's what they all say...
HeistIslaHuckEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: I'll watch your back, keep you safe.
: How about you go in front instead of behind us?

HeistIslaVinderiExit1
HeistExitContract
: What are you going to do with your share, Vinderi?
: Try out new powders, of course!
: Can I come take notes?
: No! It's MY share, and that includes any notes in it!
HeistIslaVinderiExit2
HeistExitContract
: This mission is going to be spectacular. I've got all sorts of explosives to set, and they'll never even see it coming.
: We just did the mission. We're going home now.
: You'll have to excuse me for a moment once we're back home, then.
HeistIslaGiannaExit1
HeistExitContract
: If I copy what you did with your art, will I have the same effect on men?
: You know what? You might.
: First thing I'm going to do is go terrorise Niles some more.
: Normally I'd disapprove, but it's Niles, so...
HeistIslaGiannaExit2
HeistExitContract
: I have to admit, engineer, you make quite the spectacle yourself sometimes!
: If I'm not making people cower in terror from the inexplicability of my inventions, then I'm not really doing science right!
: I have so much to learn about science...
HeistIslaNenetExit1
HeistExitContract
: Your skills and my inventions carried the day!
: It is remarkable how we beat the odds when we are together.
: That's what science is for!
HeistIslaNenetExit2
HeistExitContract
: We made it.
: Told you I'd never let anything happen to you.
: Thank you.
HeistIslaNilesExit1
HeistExitContract
: That was impressive. I should study your brain.
: Can you do that without drills?
: No drills, I promise. I could do it with a trepan.
: That does sound safer.
HeistIslaNilesExit2
HeistExitContract
: I... I really thought we were going to cash in our Markers on that one.
: Nonsense. A good plan always succeeds.
: How was that according to plan?
: Oops, did I not tell you the contingencies? No wonder you were terrified!
: Wasn't terrified...
HeistIslaHuckExit1
HeistExitContract
: Your chances for survival would have been much better with my Voltaxic-powered battle armour.
: That thing ripped a mannequin in half!

HeistIslaHuckExit2
HeistExitContract
: At some point, after so many close calls, a man's gotta admit he's just tired.

: Then compete we shall!
HeistIslaGiannaSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Can I bring my glowing red rocks along on this mission?
: The ones that make people sick?
: The rocks don't make people sick. It's the Corruption they leak that does that.
: What's the difference?
: Wear a dress lined with six-inch-thick armour and you'll be fine.
: Just what every man likes to see.
HeistIslaGiannaSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm here. Isla, will we be seeing some new inventions for this job?
: Inventions are, by definition, new!

HeistIslaNenetSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Oh, Nenet, there you are. I had a minor breakthrough on that humanoid golem you asked for.
: Why are you bringing that up here?!
: The thing is, I can't get his movement right. He's as stiff as granite, which is to be expected. Also, he doesn't cook very well.
: Sands swallow me, so that I die right here...
HeistIslaNenetSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I'm here. What is that ticking noise?
: Is it a tunk... tunk... tunk, or more of a tick, tick, tick?
: The second one.

: Are you... going to check on that ticking?

: If I use two parts Voltaxic Sulphite with three parts Trarthan... oh my, who are you?
: We've met a hundred times. We've gone on heists together.
: Oh yes, yes, I have trouble with faces. Especially handsome faces.
: Your thoughts... how vile! That is not how it works!
: The human body is just another machine, my dear... joints... pistons...

: Isla, terrorise Niles later.
HeistIslaNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ah, Isla, our woman of science! It's the young ones that are wrong, not we.
: About what?

HeistSelectedForContract
: Let's get to it!
: I've never known you to be excited for this part, Isla.
: I better be! We've only got a few hours!
: Why?
: It's not a major concern. The spores are currently harmless. Just have to be back to my devices before my vivarium germinates.
: Your what?!
: Hurry now, let's get the job done!
HeistIslaKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ah good, Isla, at least I know one person will be paying attention.

HeistGiannaNenetEntry2

HeistGiannaNenetExit1
HeistExitContract

: No. All the battles are very real.

: Too many of your generation forget to listen, especially when good advice is being given.
: Are you listening? Don't get distracted.
: It's easy to hear someone, but listening and hearing are two totally different things. So don't just hear; listen.

: Happy to be ab--... Niles.
: Yes, Vinderi, it is I. 
: Unfortunately.
: Let us put our differences aside. The job comes first.
: I know, I'm a professional.
: As am I.
: You are a jackass. 
: A professional jackass.
HeistVinderiNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello, hello. Ah. I see you'll employ absolutely any rabble. 
: Was that directed at me?
: You know it was. I know you know it was.
: Keep your greasy little head out of mine, or else. 
: Or else what, old man?
:

HeistSelectedForContract
: Nice to see you all.
: Vinderi, been meaning to ask you. Where'd you come up with the powder mixes?
: Trying to make me obsolete, are ya?
: Not at all!
: Gonna run back to Dominus with my precious formulas!? I know your game.
: Forget it, Vin. Just making small-talk.
: Forget what?
: Thanks, Vin.
: Thanks for what?
HeistVinderiHuckSelection2

: Right, what've we got?
: There's a--
: A bloody big stupid head! Boom!

: Vin. 
: Sorry, Huck.
: S'fine. Just focus on the job, yeah? 
HeistVinderiKuraiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Kurai! Just the lady I was looking for.
: Oh? I was just about to look for you!
: Looking for a reason to destroy Niles?
: No, but it sounds like you might be.
: Not at all, no, nothing of the sort. Got plenty of reasons! Just looking for permission.
: It is not granted.
: Well, can I ask the Boss?
: No you can't.
HeistVinderiKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Vinderi, thank you for joining us.
: Not a problem. What do you need from me?
: We're hoping you can help us on a job.
: Just me? Or...
: There will be several others.
: Good, good. I'm in.
: That easy?
: That easy.
HeistNenetNilesEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Perhaps this is the day that we shall die.
: In your mythology, what happens to the Faridun after death?
: I shall likely let you know soon.
HeistNenetNilesEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Oh bleak one, when a man believes he is doomed, he usually finds a way to make it happen.
: Good thing for you that I am not a man.
HeistNenetHuckEntry1
HeistEnterContract
: Where we go, death follows swiftly.
: ...You mean for our enemies, right?
: If you insist.
HeistNenetHuckEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: Remember, stay alert, eyes peeled.
: Like the ribcage of a dunewalker as the buzzards pick out his organs.
HeistNenetNilesExit1
HeistExitContract
: This was a doomed run, yet we cheated fate.
: There is no fate but what we make!
: I certainly hope so.
HeistNenetNilesExit2
HeistExitContract
: How come you and I never just talk?
: You never asked.
: Oh! Want to exchange bleak tales of oppression after this?
: That's my favourite.
HeistNenetHuckExit1
HeistExitContract
: Death's pursuit is inescapable, but we have delayed it this day.
: Reckon that calls for a celebration!
HeistNenetHuckExit2
HeistExitContract
: Gods, I feel immortal! What a rush.
: Be glad that you are not. Immortality dulls the senses. To be mortal is to feel all life has to offer.
HeistNenetAdiyahExit1
HeistExitContract
: Left any children to die lately, Maraketh?
: Not personally. I prefer to cook and eat them.
: So you admit you are evil!
: I was being facetious.
: I'm not so certain.
HeistNenetAdiyahExit2
HeistExitContract
: Why do you hide your face, Faridun?
: That's personal.
: Certainly it cannot be that bad?
: My own mother was willing to abandon me over it.
: The desert is a harsh Sekhema.
HeistNenetNilesSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello. What is the plan?
: Hmmm....
: Niles, I can feel you trying to read my thoughts.
: Oh - no - I was just -
: I do not mind.
: Really? How... {strange}.
HeistNenetNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Ah, the Faridun.
: Ah, the Templar.
: Out of curiosity, pariah, do the Faridun worship any gods?
: What's a god?
: You. I like you.

HeistHuckNilesEntry2
HeistEnterContract
: As we stride headlong into mortal peril, remember: on the other side of death is nothing. You will simply no longer be.
: ...Yeah. C-Comforting words. Good. Right. Turn back? No. Right.       
HeistHuckNilesExit1

: What a blessed day, eh?
: You minimise our actions. Nothing is blessed or cursed. We just did a good job.
HeistHuckNilesExit2

: Let's hope we live long enough to find out, eh?       
HeistHuckAdiyahExit1

: Indeed.
HeistHuckAdiyahExit2

: Commendable discipline, Mr. Huck.
: Always happy to see your portals, Adiyah. And... Call me Huck.
: Yes, Mr. Huck.
HeistHuckNilesSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Sounds like we've got some work to do.
: Oh yes. Violence, robbery... Nothing you're unaccustomed to, blackguard.
: Mate, we've talked about this.
: It is nothing to be ashamed of! Just as being an effective interrogator for the high templar himself is nothing to be ashamed of.
: Isn't it, though?
: Far from it. It means we are capable of carrying out orders, no matter now immoral.

HeistHuckNilesSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: I knew I would be required.
: That one of your mind skills, Niles? You can peer into the future?
: No, my friend. Merely confidence. The idea that one can see events yet to unfold is a flight of fancy akin to that of divine intervention, spontaneous generation, or medicine. We are born, we live, we get a small cut, we die, and we are gone. That is how it has always been, and that is how it will always be.
: My fault for asking. 
HeistHuckKuraiSelection1
HeistSelectedForContract
: Lady Kurai.
: Glad you could join us, Huck. We've got a job in the works.
: I see! Well, I'm happy to help in any way I can.
: I thought you might be. Before we set off, the Boss wanted me to check in with you.
: Oh?
: How are you feeling? Mentally.
: Still a bit... uneven. Still getting angry over little things.
: I understand. The Boss is intent on giving you the support you need, but realise that if you harm any members again, you will be asked to leave.
: Understood. And... Sorry.
HeistHuckKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Huck, thank you for coming.
: No worries, my lady.
: Whakano informs me you have been looking for old acquaintances.
: Yeah. Not looking to get back into the unit or anything, don't worry. Just miss a few people. 
: I see. In that case, the Boss will cover the costs of your search. 
: Oh, no, he doesn't have to do that.
: He wants to. 
: Thank you, lady Kurai.   
HeistNilesAdiyahExit1
HeistExitContract
: Have I ever told you that your mind is incredibly ordered?
: I believe it's called discipline.
: Or oppression. I know a little about that.
: Templar scum!
: Maraketh witch!
HeistNilesAdiyahExit2
HeistExitContract
: Niles, do you still reject the gods?
: You cannot reject that which does not exist!
: But... they do exist...
: You go on believing that.
HeistNilesKuraiSelection2
HeistSelectedForContract
: Hello, Niles. Please, join us.
: Another ill-advised plan?
: Not ill-advised, just risky.
: Then I assume I'll get stabbed again.
: Do we pay you well enough to consider that an acceptable risk?
: Yes, yes...
HeistKuraiVicMeeting1
HeistSpecialCase
: Well would you look at that. Didn't think you'd come in person! How are you, lady Kurai? Did you enjoy the book?
: We can skip the pleasantries, Vox.
: If you wish for this to be unpleasant, so be it. I want my book back.
: {The} book is no longer in my possession.
: Where is it?
: Where it belongs. Are we done?
: Kurai, Kurai, Kurai... Don't you feel you're being unfair? You did, after all, break into my home. You took something which I value. O' Eternal. A first edition. Signed by Victario himself. My parents, rest their souls, were so fond of his work that I was named after him! Am I not owed some sort of... reparations?
: Tell me what you want.
: I want {my} book. And since you don't have it... Kurai, I presume this is the thief? I know you don't do your own dirty work.
: Vic...
: Tell you what... You can keep the book. Give me the thief's head, and we'll call it even.
: Ha! You cannot be serious.
: I am deadly serious. Kill them. Now. In front of me.
: And if I don't?
: Then I will consider the theft an act of aggression against the Vox family. An act of war.
: You leave me no choice. I'm sorry, Exile. Victario Vox... it appears we are now at war.
: A stupid decision by a weak little girl.
: Goodbye Mr. Vox. And regards to your brother.
HeistKuraiVicVinnyMeeting1
HeistSpecialCase
: Hello?
: Look, brother! At last, the guest of honour has arrived, with company.
: The weak little girl brought her big strong bodyguard!
: You were {meant} to come alone! What's wrong Lady Kurai? Are you afraid of us?
: Ignore them. Keep moving.
HeistKuraiVicVinnyMeeting2
HeistSpecialCase
: You kept us waiting so very long that we got bored. We decided to pass the time. We were playing with little... Hana, was it?
: Lovely name. Beautiful cat. And so affectionate!
: Very affectionate! And we were having such a pleasant time with her! But then things took a turn!
: Hana swiped at us. Attacked us. We don't like being attacked, do we Vinny?
: Not at all. Beautiful little Hana was being vicious. Mean.
: Very mean.
: So we did to Hana what we do to anyone who attacks a Vox.
HeistKuraiVicVinnyMeeting3
HeistSpecialCase
: Do you see them anywhere? I--... Oh... oh no. No, no, no...
: Hana attacked her betters. She crossed a line. Do you see, Lady Kurai? Do you {understand}?... Hellooooo? Are you deaf?
: ... I understand.
: Good. Then we have a proposal for you. Very favourable. A truce, as long as you never interfere in Vox business again. ... Lady Kurai?
: ... I have a counter-proposal. How about we kill you, Vincent. And you, Victario. How about we kill both of you, and every member of your wretched family. How about {that}? How does {that} deal sound!?
: ...It seems discussions have broken down.
: Shame. Farewell, Lady Kurai.
HeistWhakanoFaustusBanter1
HeistSpecialCase
: How are things aboard your ship, sir?
: The Marylene? Oh, you know... Get a bunch of men in a small space and there's bound to be bickering and brawling. The ol' lashing arm's been getting a good workout, I must say.
: Do they mind you spending all this time here, sir?
: Well they don't exactly know I'm here, per se, but I imagine, rapscallions that they are, they savour any time where the man-in-charge is absent. In my day, we'd tie up the first mate, break into the swill, and see who could down the most before passing out or dying.
: You must've met the lash when your captain came back, eh?
: Oh, no. No no no. Most of us came from good, Innocence-fearing families. The captain knew that raising a hand to us would put him in hot water back home. We got away with murder, really. No, really, a few of the boys beat a galley slave to death. Barely got a talking to. Nowadays, of course, Admiral Darnaw lets damn-near anyone join the ranks. Horrible policy. I do enjoy doling out the punishments, though.
HeistWhakanoFaustusBanter2
HeistSpecialCase
: What do your people think about what happened in Oriath?
: Barbers, sir?
: Karui! Are they dancing round their totems singing the praises of the return of their saviour?
: Kitava is no saviour. Far from it. Kitava is symbolic of death, of the end of all things.
: Eh? I thought that was, uh, hinny--something.
: Hinekora? The Mother of Death is the steward of our souls, but she has no great desire to destroy us. It's a common misunderstanding among your people.
: Eternals?
: Captains. I cannot speak for all Karui, but personally, I feel a great sadness for Oriath. Many people lost their lives, their homes, their families. Good people. Bad people too, but even bad people should have the opportunity to reflect on their misdeeds and change. Kitava took that opportunity away.
: Quite right. Quite right.
HeistWhakanoFaustusBanter3
HeistSpecialCase
: Strange turn of events, eh Karui?
: Are you speaking to me, sir?
: Never imagined my people living peacefully with your people, let alone on your lands!
: No? Some would say you've been living on Karui islands for generations.
: Well, they were our islands by then, weren't they? Anyway, perhaps I should thank you.
: Me? 
: Though our beautiful metropolis is now but smoldering ruins, you have given us a new home. A chance to build society anew. Hope.
: I didn't do any of that, sir.
: You know what I mean! Learn to accept a compliment.
: I'm sorry, sir. Allow me to return a compliment: Thank you for not trampling our homes, taking our children, our brothers and sisters, our wives and husbands, and binding their arms and legs when you washed ashore. Thank you for limiting your recolonisation to one island, and for breaking only a few of our laws and traditions in these early days. 
: You're very welcome. See? It's not hard.
