Valkeng : Dancing now. Please observe.
Over level 30 chat
Valkeng : Would like to join in dance?
Shamarhaan : Looks like he's taken a liking to you!
Shamarhaan : This little guy's name is Valkeng. What do you say, Val?
Valkeng : Nice to meet kind sir.
Shamarhaan : Ha ha, isn't he just the cutest thing?
Shamarhaan : But to tell the truth, it's only because I made him that way. I'm not sure if you noticed, but I was controlling his every movement!
Shamarhaan : 'Puppets' like him are called automatons. They can do all sorts of things, but it all depends on the handler's skill.
Shamarhaan : I make my living entertaining people this way.
Shamarhaan : People who can control and customize automatons are referred to as 'puppetmasters' in the Near East.
Shamarhaan : You say you'd like to give it a try yourself?
Shamarhaan : Ha ha, I'm afraid you've got to be a puppetmaster for that.
Shamarhaan : Eh? You want to be a puppetmaster, do you? Quite the hasty one, aren't we?
Shamarhaan : Well, if I had time, I'd be glad to teach you the ropes, but I can't make a living staying in the same town for months on end, now can I?
Shamarhaan : Ah, I have the perfect solution! You should meet with my pupil, Iruki-Waraki. I've taught him everything I know.
Shamarhaan : He has grown far better than I. You really must witness his expertise before learning how to control an automaton yourself.
Shamarhaan : If you really want to become a puppetmaster, I advise speaking to Iruki-Waraki in Aht Urhgan Whitegate.
