Conversations, Cinematics, Description and Objectives from A Man Apart

DescriptionEdit

It's time to pay the Baron a visit at Northcrest Manor and settle this once and for all. The Iron Leader of The City took Erin after the riots in the asylum so he might still have her at his house across the bridge in Auldale.

Cinematic Exit VaultEdit


GARRETT: I'll need to move fast to get back to The City. Quickest way will be through the sewers if I want to avoid trouble.

Cinematic Intro CaptainEdit


WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Eyes on me! You're here to stop that mob reaching the Baron. If those scum break through the gates of Northcrest, that's where they'll fall.
GARRETT: The City riots are out of control. Seems the poor and the sick are tired of their Iron Leader and his future promises. A useful distraction. . .
GARRETT: Northcrest Manor.
GARRETT: Somewhere in here rests the Baron's precious heirloom, the Heart of the Lion.
GARRETT: I don't know what it looks like but I do know it's priceless.


Cinematic Meet BaronEdit


BARON NORTHCREST: If you're to kill me. . . make it quick.
GARRETT: I need answers. . . and you'd better give them to me.
BARON NORTHCREST: Nobody likes my answers. I've heard much about you. There's a power in this earth. An old energy. Primal. To all but the Attuned; it is benign, unseen. Yet it can be channelled - harnessed into productive form. In the past, only small amounts have been controlled - but I, I dreamed bigger! Better!
GARRETT: What did you do with Erin at the asylum?
BARON NORTHCREST: When the stone broke. . . and the book was destroyed. . . the energy somehow passed to her! Exposure to this source has a terrifying effect, twisting mind and body!
GARRETT: I know what it can do. Where is the girl?
BARON NORTHCREST: I tried removing the energy from her, but when that bastard took Erin from Moira, he took my dream with her!
GARRETT: Who are you talking about . . . ?
BARON NORTHCREST: It was Aldous who took the girl. Aldous! You know him better as Orion. My. . . brother.
BARON NORTHCREST: We grew up apart. But I brought him back into the family, into the Awakened. Like us he was attuned to the Primal. He was there at the ceremony, the ritual, helping. But now his fanatics are here for the stone.
GARRETT: Why would Orion take the girl?
BARON NORTHCREST: He must be planning another ritual. And you've been a most obedient dog, it would seem. First he had you steal Cornelius' ring. . . then the book. The stone from the Keep. If he were to find the final. . .
BARON NORTHCREST: Your eye! You were there, I remember now! You're the missing piece? Good luck with my brother's mob!


TTG ConfrontationEdit


THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: What's this? The Master Thief? Have I come at a bad time?
THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: Forgive my clumsiness. Since our first encounter, I've always been a bit heavy-footed on this leg.
GARRETT: We have got to stop meeting like this.
THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: They used to plunge a caught thief's hand into hot tar, Garrett. 'Blackhanding.' But yours, I'll have for my mantelpiece.
THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: Garrett, the hand of a hanged thief goes for good coin. But yours, I think I'll keep on my mantelpiece.
GARRETT: You can put it next to the pictures of your mother.


ErinEdit


ERIN: Garrett, I'm slipping!


OrionEdit


ORION: The cure!
ORION: Take her blood.


Garrett VO and E3Edit


GARRETT: The Baron's last line of defense might be ready for the mob, but they're not ready for me. I'll get inside before this turns ugly.
GARRETT: That was the easy part. This is a big house, and the Baron won't be taking appointments tonight. Not by choice.
GARRETT: A hidden vault? I'll consider that an invitation.
GARRETT: This was the Northcrest family chapel . . . and now the Baron's personal vault. I wonder what the old man wants to take with him to the next life.
GARRETT: That's where I removed the Heart of the Lion earlier. The secret's safe with me.
GARRETT: The Baron's next guests have arrived. While they're burning the manor down, I'll head for the ceremony room.
GARRETT: This must lead to the ceremony room. But right now my unfinished business is with the Baron himself.
GARRETT: A thief should never return to the scene of a crime . . . but this one's been haunting me.
GARRETT: Somewhere in here has to be a way down to the laboratory.
GARRETT: There's the Primal Stone piece. But what's this contraption it's sat in? No time to find a manual, I need to get it out somehow.
GARRETT: I don't know what this machine does, but without power it's not doing anything.
GARRETT: There's a crack in the glass. But this stuff is thick . . . arrows aren't going to help me here.
GARRETT: The pressure is widening the cracks. If I keep applying it in the right places, I can break this thing open.
GARRETTE3: There are plenty of guards here but with the mob on the way, they won't be expecting me.
GARRETTE3: Smells worse than Riverside on a hot day but it might be a way in.
GARRETTE3: I wonder if this turns off all the water in the gardens.
GARRETTE3: {split:0.8} Walking in through the front door isn't my style anyway.
GARRETTE3: The Baron's cellars look as neglected as his sense of humor.
GARRETTE3: That's a lot of wasted food. The mob won't be impressed.
GARRETTE3: Just another dark and dusty attic.
GARRETTE3: I don't think what I want is here. I should turn back.
GARRETTE3: Cold, hard and uncomfortable. I'm guessing this is the Baron's bed.
GARRETTE3: Nice to see the Baron's men eating well. Wouldn't want them to starve while they hang people for stealing bread.
GARRETTE3: These traps are new. Seems 'Baranoid' Northcrest is worried about intruders. I should step lightly.
GARRETTE3: These traps are new. Seems Northcrest is worried about intruders. should step lightly.
GARRETTE3: Ah, Baron, Baron, Baron. Never leave important letters lying around in case of people like me. Now where's that painting?
GARRETTE3: That marked area on the second floor . . . that wasn't on the original building plan.
GARRETTE3: That looks like the vault I'm searching for. The hidden entrance must be close.
GARRETTE3: The hidden room must be near here somewhere. I should check the walls.
GARRETTE3: The hidden room must be near here somewhere. I should check the paintings.
GARRETTE3: Hmm, an original Lizotte. Reasonable work, but not the Baron's usual taste. . .
GARRETTE3: This is the painting I'm looking for; an original Lizotte. Let's see if you're hiding any secrets behind there.
GARRETTE3: This looks like it used to be the old family chapel. Seems the Northcrests really do have no time for the old gods.
GARRETTE3: This looks like it used to be the old family chapel. Seems the Northcrests are hiding more than a few secrets.
GARRETTE3: A shrine of lions?
GARRETTE3: These symbols look like they could match up.
GARRETTE3: The symbols are too worn to make out. If I could see inside the shrine maybe I could figure out how it works.
GARRETTE3: It looks like I need to turn the discs so the weight can drop.
GARRETTE3: Well, well. All this time I thought the Baron didn't have a heart and here it is. Sorry, Northcrest, this might hurt a little.
GARRETTE3: Priceless relic realigned with an appreciative new owner. Time to vanish.
GARRETT: The lion triumphant . . . not the most subtle of commissions, Baron.
GARRETT: The Graven have overrun the manor. If the old gods do exist then Elias is about to meet them.
GARRETT: Well, I suppose everyone needs a hobby.
GARRETT: It looks as if parts of the glass have weak points.


Garrett VO E3Edit


GARRETTE3: The City riots are out of control. Seems the poor and the sick are tired of their Iron Leader and his future promises. A useful distraction. . .

GARRETTE3: Hmm. Walking in through the front door isn't my style anyway.
GARRETTE3: That box looks . . . precarious.
GARRETTE3: Sewers. Well, everyone smells the same on the inside. Just think of the prize and try not to breathe.
GARRETTE3: I'm in. It's said the Heart is secured in a hidden room. This is a big house so time to start exploring.
GARRETTE3: I'm in. It's said the Heart is secured in a hidden room. This is a big house.
GARRETTE3: Maybe I should start in the library.
GARRETTE3: The Baron's cellars look as neglected as his sense of humor.
GARRETTE3: That's a lot of wasted food. The mob won't be impressed.
GARRETTE3: Just another dark and dusty attic.

GARRETTE3: Priceless relic realigned with an appreciative new owner. Time to vanish.
GARRETTE3: Really? A glass roof right above the loot? That wasn't on the plans I saw! Can't trust anyone these days. Well, at least I have a convenient way out.
GARRETTE3: I can't leave without the 'Heart of the Lion'.


Captain OrderEdit


WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Stand firm and Northcrest holds tonight.


Cellar DoorEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Where's Poultick wandered off to? The frigging Graven on the way and he's not even here?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Digging himself a ditch to hide in. What am I saying, he'll make someone else do it for him.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Where have you been? Captain will geld you if he finds out you left your post.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: You're here to take my place, bleater. I have to secure the cellar. So stay out of my way while I work on this trap.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Likely to go off in your face.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Just stand guard and shut up.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: There'll be a hangman's noose on every tree if they overrun us.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Then we get off easy. I heard they carved up the poor bastards in Black Square with butcher's knives.


Gaurds Fountain OffEdit


WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 1: Huh? The fountain stopped. Good, damn thing was making me have to piss anyway.
WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 2: Huh? The fountain stopped. Good, damn thing was making me have to piss anyway.
WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 1: Huh? The fountain stopped. Good, I couldn't hear a damned thing over it anyway.
WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 2: Huh? The fountain stopped. Good, I couldn't hear a damned thing over it anyway.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Never mind the fountain. Keep your eyes on those walls.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: This doesn't feel right. Why did the fountain stop?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: It smells like frigging sewage.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Probably better this way, we'll need all the water we can muster to put out the flames.


Guards Front GateEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: I bet there's blood running in the streets tonight. Can't count how many Graven scum I saw out there.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: You can't count your own thumbs.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Shit, if I was born a clever man, I'd not be here.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Do you have something? This waiting is killing me.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: If the Graven have made it through, what good would I do?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: I don't want to frigging die. Stay alert.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: All right.


Guards RunningEdit


WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 1: Let's move! We'll have better coverage of the gardens from the balcony.
WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 2: Right. I'll take the far side.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Bowmen! Anything comes over those walls, put a bolt through it. Watch these gardens like a hawk. If a mouse farts, I want to know about it.
WATCH CROSSBOW GUARD 1: Yes, sir!


Attic TrapEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Of course it was the last one . . .
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Why isn't it working like the other ones?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Scratch me eyes and rub with the poor. I'll find my pap dead and that'll make four.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Black she rides and ends the tides. Old Jenny comes for me.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: The wheat field . . . alive. I'll find . . . five.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Black she rides and ends the tides. Old Jenny comes for me.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: The wind blows bad and . . . I'll find my love dead and that will make six.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Black she rides and ends the tides. Old Jenny comes for me.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Why so complicated, when a tripwire and crossbow would do the job?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: If Royal Topness the Baron likes traps so much he could at least provide frigging instructions.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Where did I put that other bit?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Eh? I can't see where I've cocked this up.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Let's try this then.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Maybe this will work better.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Let's see if this sorts it.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: That ought to do it.


Captains LibraryEdit


WATCH CAPTAIN 1: The other wing is too exposed. Is there access to the Baron's chambers?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: It was ruined in the accident and never rebuilt. It's a deathtrap--
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Sir, I was thinking. I couldn't help noticing earlier that there are no men guarding the sewers.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: I'm sorry, Jessop. Did you hear me call you over?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Er . . . no, sir!
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Do you want the Graven plucking out your eyes with rusty knives? Is that what you want?
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Do you want the Graven plucking out your eyes with dull, rusty knives? Is that what you want?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: No, Sir.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: So put one foot in front of the other and get back to your fucking patrol as you were told.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: At least Jones and Poultick have set traps at the obvious weak points.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: I can't believe the guards are offering us their strategic wisdom now. Rork's teeth.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: So many entry points. If these walls are breached . . .
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: I feel like I'm missing something. Think, man. Think!
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: If we could have moved the Baron to a better location . . .
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: The upper floor is well covered at least. One wrong step and you'll lose a leg.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: I read the reports. These dirty Graven are bloody monsters.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: I don't see what else we can do. If Edison can't hold them in the grounds then we're dead men standing.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Edison's a good man. He'll stop them or die trying.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Much good his death will do you or me when we're having our throats cut.
WATCH CAPTAIN 1: Keep it shut. The men are twitchy as it is.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: This place is more a house than a castle.


Check DoorEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Still locked and seems secure.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Nothing out of place here. Hope it stays that way.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Still secure but I'm not sure a door's going to stop them.


Check WindowEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Clear bells and all's well.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Window's still intact.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: It's not been touched.


Mansion BreachEdit


GRAVEN GUARD 1: Down with Northcrest! Burn the bastard!
GRAVEN GUARD 2: Kill the Baron's men!
GRAVEN GUARD 3: This is for Jacob!
GRAVEN GUARD 2: Take his head! Hang his Guard!
GRAVEN GUARD 1: Death to the Baron!
GRAVEN GUARD 2: The Graven Dawn has come!
GRAVEN GUARD 3: Burn the Baron!
GRAVEN GUARD 1: For Orion!
GRAVEN GUARD 2: Strike down the ringers!
GRAVEN GUARD 3: Kill the blacktops!


Guard LibraryEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: I'd have come by the sewers if I was a Graven.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Rules of . . . Wooing . . . a Lady. Huh. There are rules?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Finders Keepers, by Kassandra. Huh. Never heard of it.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: An Account of Historical Bloodlines and the Effect on Colonial Gentrification? Who reads this shit?


Guards Check RoomEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: All's well?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Yes. Clear bells.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Anything?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: It's all quiet.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: See something?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Nope.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: They say that thief the General wants can turn invisible in the dark. You believe it?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Trumped-up pipe-talk. If I saw the blackhand right now I'd make him vanish sure enough.


Guards LobbyEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: I've been thinking. Shouldn't we be moving the Baron out, not walling him in?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Don't think. He's in his private chambers, he won't be moving anywhere. General's orders. Keep your attention on the barricade.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Fucking barricades didn't stop them in Stonemarket.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Frigging barricades didn't stop them in Stonemarket.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Well this one better. I don't want your face to be the last I see before the end.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: When those Graven break into the mansion, they're not going to come in one by one.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: If those Graven break in then we stand back-to-back and keep swinging until it's over. All right?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Hmm.


Guards PatrolEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: It's true then, about the Graven in the Keep?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Aye, rattled all the rich in Dayport from top to bottom.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: That place was supposed to be impregnable and we are trying to guard the Baron in his frigging mansion. You think he's really here?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: He's here. He's up in his private chambers. I saw the General go up there a little while back.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: He's in a fine temper since losing that blackhand bastard in the Keep.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Bet against the General, you're reaching up a burrick's hole. He won't stop ‘til that thief's dead.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: We might see him smile for once.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Oh he smiles. And you can see all his teeth, too.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: You ever get the feeling we're being watched?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: It's just the damned paintings. Relax.


Stop to CheckEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Stand guard. I'm going to have a look around.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Hold it. Cover the area while I check this out.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Let's see if we're 'clear bells' here. Watch my back, will you?


Guards WorriedEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: You weren't there, out in Greystone. Half the City was burning. Guards swingin' from beams, choked on our own bloody banners. Frigging hundreds of them bearing down and us with our backs to the wall.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: My advice, fear the Baron more than the Graven. Would you rather take your chances outside?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: We're going to die.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: If you keep acting like a ropewailer at the gallows then yes, you are going to die. Just do as you're told and calm down.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: Trapped like rats on a sinking ship.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: Quiet. Mind the Graven don't cut out that poetic tongue you've got.


Hall Guard ChecksEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Are you there? It's not a good night for tricks.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: What? He must be in here somewhere.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: Did he slip off for a piss?
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2: I need to get back to patrol. He'll turn up.


Guards Room Guard ExitsEdit


WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: All quiet here-- Huh? How'd you like that, he's wandered off.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: The Captain must've called. He'll be back.


Trap PursuitEdit


WATCH CAPTAIN 1: I'll watch the doors, but no further! Let the traps do their worst.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 1: I'll go no further. Good luck with the traps, thief.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 2:You're done now, thief. The traps will finish you off.
WATCH VETERAN GUARD 3: You may have escaped my blade, but not the traps.


TTG ElevatorEdit


THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: The Baron will not leave. He believes he's being noble. A captain on the prow of his sinking ship! For the old fool's sake, let's try to keep the damn thing afloat.
THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: And the Graven noose from his neck . . .
THIEF-TAKER GENERAL: . . . Or you'll answer to me. And I can be much more inventive than the mob out there!
