Your Nautical Neighbour

Inspecting Pete

  • Player: How would I go about protecting this nautical fellow from the curse of the culinaromancer then?
  • Gypsy Aris: Hmmm... Wait a moment, my gypsy-sense is tingling...
  • Player: Erm... okay...
  • Gypsy Aris: Ah yes. To immunise him from the culinaromancer's attack, you will need to feed him fishcakes.
  • Player: Fishcakes? What, like chocolate cake with fish instead of chocolate?
  • Gypsy Aris: No... Like small bread crumbed fishy delicacies.
  • Player: Um... So how would I make those then?
  • Gypsy Aris: I don't know. I am a gypsy, not a cook.
  • Gypsy Aris: I don't suppose it occurred to you to ask the actual cook in the room right next door to us?
  • Player: Ooooh yeah... I'll be right back!

Seafood Special

Asking the Cook about protecting the Pirate
  • Player: I can't quite remember how I managed to save that pirate...
  • Cook: The pirate? Yes, you used fishcakes didn't you?
  • Player: I did? Er... I mean I did.
  • Player: Out of interest, could you just help me quickly with that?
  • Player: Can you tell me how to make fishcakes?
  • Cook: Fishcakes? As in with fish eggs and fish milk?
  • Player: Don't be silly, that would never work.
  • Player: Can you check to see if there is a recipe for them?
  • Cook: Of course.
  • The Chef checks one of his cookbooks.
  • Cook: Found it!
  • Cook: Apparently you need Ground Cod, Ground Kelp, Ground Giant Crab Meat and Breadcrumbs.
    • Player: Where do I get Ground Cod?
      • Cook: Well, if you use a pestle and mortar on a raw cod that will grind it up nicely.
    • Player: Where do I get Ground Kelp?
      • Cook: There are apparently some kelp patches off the coast near Rimmington. Murphy knows more about that.
      • Cook: As for the grinding part, all you have to do is use a pestle and mortar on it, that ought to get it sorted.
      • Cook: Murphy also used to bring in Giant Crabs occasionally. He hasn't had any of them in for a while though.
      • Cook: You had best go and have a word with him to see if he can tell you what happened.
    • Player: Where do I get Ground Giant Crab Meat?
      • Cook: Well, Murphy used to bring in Giant Crabs occasionally. He hasn't had any of them for a while though.
      • Cook: You had best go and have a word with him to see if he can tell you what happened.
      • Cook: Oh, and there are apparently some kelp patches off the coast near Rimmington. Murphy knows about that too.
      • Cook: As for the grinding part, all you have to do is use a pestle and mortar on it, that ought to get it sorted.
    • Player: Where do I get Breadcrumbs?
      • Cook: That's easy, all you do is use a knife to slice the bread up into tiny, tiny chunks.
    • Player: What do I do with all of it?
      • Player: What did I do with all of it?
      • Cook: I'm not entirely sure. What am I, an encyclopedia?
      • Cook: I'll have a look through my cookbook while I wait for the ingredients.
      • Player: Ok, I'll go out and get all of the stuff and bring it to you.
      • Cook: Ok.
      • Cook: Is there anything else you need to know?
    • Player: Thanks! [If you have select an option]
      • Cook: No problem!

Deep-Sea Diving

Murphy Ahoy

  • Player: Murphy, what can you tell me about giant crabs?
  • Murphy: Giant Crabs? Why, I used to haul up a few of those whenever I set my nets around Rimmington.
  • Murphy: Why the interest?
  • Player: I need to get some Giant Crab Meat and Kelp. Can you tell me where I can get some?
  • Murphy: Well, the only thing I can think to do is to go down there and look to see if there are any left.
  • Player: Go down there? What do you mean?
  • Murphy: As in under the water!
  • Murphy: Tell me, can you get your hands on a fishbowl?
  • Player: I'm sure I will be able to if I put my mind to it, why do you ask?
  • Murphy: Well, I know how to ring up a handy set of breathing gear that can allow you to keep air inside the fishbowl.
  • Murphy: You just put the barrel of air on your back, with the fishbowl over your head, and then dive over the side.
  • Murphy: It should hold enough air to keep you alive for quite some time.
  • Player: That sounds pretty dangerous.
  • Murphy: Not at all. I'll even weigh anchor with the chain somewhere easy to reach so you can climb out easily enough if you run into trouble.
  • Player: I'm still not happy about this...
  • Murphy: Well, I can't think of any other way to check if you come up with a better plan then feel free to tell me.
  • Murphy: In the meantime I'll wait, and if you want me to take you diving I'll be ready.
  • Murphy: By the way, why are you so interested in crabs all of a sudden?
  • Player: I can't tell you I'm afraid. The very fabric of space and time could collapse!
  • Murphy: O...k...
  • Murphy: Well, I guess some people will do anything for a bit of fresh seafood.

All Geared Up

  • Murphy: Ahoy there! Up for a bit of a swim?
  • Player: I certainly am.
  • Murphy: Great! I'll sort that fishbowl out for you.
  • Murphy attaches some tubes to the backpack and the fishbowl and puts a rubber hood inside.
  • Murphy: There you go.
  • Player: Are you sure this is safe?
  • Murphy: Sure! It's as sound as my ship!
  • Murphy: Want me to take you out now?
    • Player: Yes. Let's go diving.
      • If you don't have the items equipped
        • Murphy: Well I can't take you out until you are properly geared up.
        • Murphy: We lost three diving parties that way!
        • Player: Ok, well I'll just put my diving helmet and diving backpack on.
      • If you have the items equipped
        • Murphy: Ok, let's be off then.
        • Player: Ok, see you soon Murphy!
        • Murphy: Good luck, I'll weigh anchor. Climb up the chain to get aboard.
    • Player: Not just yet.

Speaking to the Cook about fishcakes again
  • Player: Out of interest, could you just help me quickly with that?
  • Player: I have all the ingredients for fishcakes!
  • Cook: Great! Just like before! I've been reading the recipe and I know how to make the fishcakes now.
