Journal detail hr1 08.png Objects Involved

  • Konogg would attend to simpler matters before embarking on any further missions relating to unfathomable technology and the applications thereof.
  • You consult with Konogg, who mentions that he would like to check on the other villagers─a perfectly reasonable idea, given that if they are fine, they will have ale, and if not, they will need help. Even Anogg agrees to go, but before any of you can move a single step, raucous noise emanates from outside the door.
  • The door opens to reveal quite a few dwarves of Komra present and not in the best of moods. Due to eyewitness accounts of a not entirely inaccurate but nevertheless incomplete nature, it seems that many have concluded Anogg and Konogg to be the source of the chaos. With tempers running high, it is impossible for the siblings to get a word in edgeways about their motivations or the dangers that remain, and thus Konogg begs you to explain the situation to the village elder in their stead.
  • It transpires that the elder, Glagg, is keen to get proper grasp of the circumstances surrounding the disaster himself─though like the other villagers, he is fixated on apportioning blame to the exclusion of all else. Perhaps if you assist him in reconciling the villagers' differing perspectives, he will be more inclined to listen to your side of the story.
  • As you speak to the villagers, it immediately becomes clear why Glagg is having difficulty deriving a coherent conclusion from their disparate─and in some cases melodramatic─assertions. Hopefully your explanation can add some sense to the mix.
  • You speak with Glagg, who is completely unsurprised by his people's unhelpfulness. In a last-ditch effort to weed out those who simply like yelling from those with actual knowledge of the situation, he asks for a show of hands. Alas, this directive too goes unheeded.
  • Finally having given up on making heads or tails of what the villagers have to say, Glagg turns to you for a conclusive verdict on who is at fault for this incident, at last providing you the opportunity to present your perspective. However, before he can announce said results to the people at large, he is interrupted by Anogg─who is in turn interrupted by 2B, whose sudden and menacing appearance sends the other dwarves fleeing in terror. Though she ostensibly merely found the argument over blame to be as pointless as it in fact was, Konogg has a sneaking suspicion that she intervened out of concern for the twins' welfare.
  • Given the kindness that she has shown him and his sister, Konogg feels it only right that he thank 2B. Presumably she may be found back at the bedside of her inert comrade.
  • You enter Anogg's hideaway to find Konogg attempting to convince 2B to come with him and speak with the villagers, concerned that as things stand, they will be unable to accept that 2B is on their side. She dismisses this as of no import, and without further ado hoists 9S over her shoulder and leaves─presumably to continue her campaign against the machines. Konogg worries for her, but also for Anogg, who was still racked with guilt when last you saw her.
  • You and Konogg proceed to the workspace where Anogg may usually be found, but she is nowhere to be seen. Panicking at the thought of his sister alone and at the mercy of angry villagers and hostile machines, Konogg implores you to search the area around Komra for any sign of her.
  • On your search for suitable brooding spots, you climb a ridge overlooking the path to the village. Alas, Anogg is not there, nor anywhere in view.
  • You continue further afield to a contemplative sort of clifftop, but again you are disappointed.
  • Having glimpsed neither helm nor beard of Anogg elsewhere, you finally make your way to the Dwarven Hollows. Sadly, you discover that Anogg has not, in fact, decided to stop in the middle of a knocker-infested cave for a spot of soul-searching.
  • For want of ideas, you return to Komra to consult Konogg. You find that he has had no better luck in finding his sister, and his spirits are much the worse off for it. Where can she possibly have gone?

Honestly, I think I would've preferred the Tholl infiltration to this.
Rumors aside, we haven't seen any treasure aside from glorified scrap metal come out of that accursed machine graveyard. With the village in this state, though, I wouldn't say no to some of that. Maybe I'll see what I can dig up.
I'll admit, I had a lot of theories--untapped veins, hidden treasure, secret Tholl-made volcanoes designed to erupt in unison and wipe out all life aside from their automaton army--but hostile flying machines from beneath the mountain wasn't one of them!
And after we worked so hard... Hard as we ever work, at any rate.
I have some choice words for those things that destroyed all of our lovely decorations...the husband doesn't like it when I use most of them, though. He has delicate sensibilities.
When I get my hands on those things what blasted us...
Did you see those flying things!? I'd love to take a wrench to one of those.
...What do you want, and at this time of all times?
<wail> My food, my beautiful food!
Bugger my beard! This is a disaster!
I didn't think... I didn't think...
Come to think of it, none of us ever did get the chance to enjoy the carnival.

It's possible everyone is still carrying on with it─I've never known a few explosions to dampen their spirits before. Still, I might go and check on them.

Coming, Anogg?
What's all that noise?
I suppose there's only one way to find out...
It's loud.
P-Please, we didn't mean for any of this to happen!
Will you all shut─ Oh. Beg your pardon. Bit preoccupied with my duties at the moment.
This is what I was afraid of.
Always knew those brats were up to something...
The village is in shambles! My house may as well be a pile of kindling!
Didn't like that. Did not like that at all, no sir.
Them things came from right here! Saw it with my own two eyes, and that's that! I swear it on my granddad's grave!
Why me!?
Please, calm down! It's a complicated situation, and even we are not fully─
We ain't here for your excuses! Just admit it─ This is all your fault!

You let those things in through the tunnels! They knew you. And look what they did to the place!

We don't care about the whys and wherefores. We want to know how you plan to make amends!
We'll do everything we can, I swear! But...

<sigh> I don't think this is going anywhere good. The village is still in danger!

No one wants to hear it from me, though... Please, can you speak to Elder Glagg and make him understand?
We never meant for any of this to happen!
And who might you be? Haven't seen your face around here before. Or...have I? I misplaced my spectacles some time ago.

No matter. I'm here to investigate, not conversate. As the eldest elder, it falls to me to determine the truth of the rumors surroundin' this disaster.

The problem bein', of course, that everyone here is stubborn as a diamond ingot! They all insist they know what's true, though you can be sure half of them are up to their eyeballs in ale at any given time.

I need a second opinion. A sober opinion. Here, let me smell your breath.

<sniff> You'll do. Speak with the villagers, and think well on who has the right of it. Then I'll hear what you have to say.
I'm so sorry...
I apologize for involving you in this nonsense on top of everything else...
Blasted youth... No respect for proper procedure...
Lali-I knew we'd end up here someday-ho.
It's hard to know where to place the blame.
If you agreed with Anogg's plan. If you agreed with Konogg's plan.
I understand why you followed along with Anogg's plan, but if you all had been just a little more careful...
I understand why you followed along with Konogg's plan, but if you all had been quicker to deal with the threat...
I just don't know. Maybe the fault is mine.
You... You're the collaborator. Well, don't think you can come crying to me now that it's all gone wrong.
If you agreed with Anogg's plan. If you agreed with Konogg's plan.
It's plain as day that Anogg's the type to charge ahead without a care for who she might be getting mixed up in her troubles. And her brother ain't much better.
It's plain as day that Konogg's not one for straightforward solutions. And his sister ain't much better, with her flights of fancy.
They don't have a bit of sense between the two of them, nor any respect for the village, neither. This would never have happened if it weren't for their meddling!
Anogg could've saved us from those things, I just know it. There ain't no way a clever girl like her wouldn't have found a way to fight 'em. If only that brother of hers weren't always holding her back...
If you agreed with Anogg's plan. If you agreed with Konogg's plan.'re that outsider, ain't you?
Don't worry─I don't blame you. I can see you're the sort what knows how to take control of a situation. I'm sure you supported Anogg as best you could.
You ain't from around here, but trust me─Konogg's been making his problems Anogg's problems since they were little. It's a shame, too, because she's a real visionary.
If she'd had her way, she would've found out what was going on and how to put an end to it before those machines could make a beep!
If it weren't for Konogg, I'd be enjoying a nice ale in front of my intact house right about now...
You want to know what I think? We're doomed! Doooooomed!
I didn't do it!
Oh, Anogg and Konogg, you say? Yes, they did do it. It was them!
If you agreed with Anogg's plan. If you agreed with Konogg's plan.
And you... I heard you followed Anogg into the machine graveyard. Heard it with my own two ears, I did! Everyone knows it, too, so you'd better be prepared to pay!
And you... I heard you followed Konogg into the machine graveyard. Heard it with my own two ears, I did! Everyone knows it, too, so you'd better be prepared to pay!
I didn't know about any of this! You can't prove I did!
This'll be Anogg's fault, you hear? That girl never had an onze of prudence. If only she were more like her brother...
If you agreed with Anogg's plan. If you agreed with Konogg's plan.
She ought to have left that machine graveyard well enough alone! But she insisted on barging in anyway, heedless of all danger.
That's what happened, mark my words! And Anogg had better answer for it.
Konogg told her to be cautious─mark my words! And she ought to have heeded him.
I can see from the look in your eye that you agree. I only hope Konogg doesn't end up answering for his sister's folly.
That Anogg...
Were we...that wrong? Didn't we try our hardest?
So the fools still can't agree on which way is up. Wish I was surprised.
Let's try puttin' it to a vote, eh? Maybe the ones pretendin' to know more about the matter than they really do will think twice about makin' arses of themselves so publicly.
Can't none of you stitch your beards for half a moment!? I'm askin' you to raise your hands in an orderly fashion!

This is hopeless. We're not gettin' anything useful from them.

I'm not ruling out that one of these idiots accidentally has the right of it, but... In your sober judgment, who's to blame?

If you still ain't sure, you can try talkin' to everyone again...though I can't say I recommend it.

Just make sure you don't take any detours past the ale casks until this is settled.
It's important to hear people out, don't get me wrong─but they do have a tendency to oversimplify. And yell. Loudly.
I don't know how to make it any plainer─Anogg and Konogg are to blame here. Fools, the both of them.
This is what dithering and dragging your feet gets you, I tell you! Ain't no one to blame but Konogg for it.
We're all done for...
I haven't said anything we don't all know already! So don't even think about trying to pin this on me!
Only Anogg would be so reckless as to bring the whole village crashing down around our ears!
<sniff> Still passably sober, I see. Have you come to a conclusion?
What will you say?
It's Anogg's fault. It's Konogg's fault. Both Anogg and Konogg are to blame. It's complicated. You're all doomed! Doooooomed! I haven't decided yet.
Interestin'. I'll take that under advisement.
Take your time. I'll be keepin' an eye on this lot.
Ahem! Everyone, I stand before you to present my findin's regardin' culpability in the destruction that has befallen our village...
Please, wait! It's m─
As I've said, blaming yourselves is pointless. This is my doing.
It's one of them! Run! Run for your lives!
Are you...defending us?
There's no benefit to petty arguments.
She says that...but I think it was kind of her to intervene.
I'll try speaking to the others─see if I can't get them to understand that there's more going on here than it appears.
I'm sure she went to check on her friend─that other android, 9S. I'm going to go and talk to her.
It's pointless to fight your own.
I appreciate your stepping in─but I don't want everyone to see you as the enemy. If we go and talk to them now, we can explain...
That's not necessary. I'm leaving anyway.
This is not over. For us, or the machines.
What are you thinking, 2B...

I'm worried for Anogg, as well. She hasn't been herself since...well.

If she's not here, she's probably drowning herself in work. Come on─we should check on her.
She's not here! What is she doing!? This isn't the time to be outside alone!

We need to find her! I'll look around the village, but...can you search the outskirts?

Oh, Anogg...
I'm too old for this...
We ain't letting those brats get away with this just because some lady with a sword says so, are we?
Konogg had best find a way to fix this, if you ask me.
Stitch your beards so I can tell you about the doom!
I want to see some punishment! With my own two eyes!
Where did that Anogg run off to now?
Anogg isn't with you?

...What do I do? This is all because of us, and I...

I don't know how to find her.

I'm...not used to being alone...
