PETRA Well then let her FATHER serve as an example! This happens every day!
<Name Missing> Bring it to Elro . Ivory batteries are what the people outside City 1 have to get Holy permission to use in order to have power in their homes. Ivory grows harder to get. Exchange this for an Ivory Battery in the Church . Ivory slips are granted regularly to countryside people. If they behave well they may get more, or be deprived of one if they don't. Ivory grows harder to get.
<Name Missing> They say the highly peculiar Angrock can only be broken by a firm stomping by jumping with and then pressing while holding in mid-air .
<Name Missing, During Laurie Letter Quest> Bring it to Laurelai's friend in House 10 in Settlement 17 . Is that romance I smell?
<Name Missing> The charging of guns is prohibited! Last time someone charged a gun it killed another person way more than necessary
<Name Missing, Seems like a note from the developer to himself> There's still floor missing here! I've been having to grab the moving nut with a wrench, not pressing forward after I do to hang onto it, then press Forward, Jump or Down to get off! Fix this!
CHEMICO CONTRA If you gather as much as you can for us, it could greatly aid mankind finding new, more efficient power sources! CHEMICO CONTRA Some may even complete current research and give you Powerups ! Not me, though. 'Been slacking.
MINA I won't stay here. MINA I'll follow every damn sepian hair strand of that agent I can find! MINA Pick one... Don't go! Be careful! MINA Are you suggesting I just sit around here and wait? MINA Look, I get it, you don't know her, but you don't understand. MINA Of course I will. MINA It's not a choice for me! MINA I can find the agent's trail without finding the agent. MINA At least that agent is afraid now! MINA I'm getting some things from home, and then I'm going after her! !
<Name Missing> Contains some of Mina's clothes . She left this suitcase behind when she left Isilugar Town. They're not really your type. --- <Removed Item Description for RSVP> Deliver this to some soldiers not attempting to shoot you , I guess...
MINA Mom always says she worries I'm turning into my father. MINA She seemed to imply he just got bored of life and walked out on the two of us ... That was before we were in any underwater town.
MINA "I set out to make this map. Humanity will get to see their world, and get perspective. It will be and must be perfect."
ELRO You act like you think I would be shocked. I already think they're sinister. ELRO You're just trying to upset me. Calm down. MINA Don't you tell me! ELRO The One Concern has been pushing the scripture more than usual on us country people, it kinda makes it a daily business. ELRO Dunno why they do, though ... MINA Why didn't you tell me before, then?! ELRO I don't know, I don't investigate! It's just what's been making more sense. If I wanted to investigate, I'm a One Concern employee, so they check me out more.
MINA Is it his posture that's worth Samba? Is it watching his pretty powers that's worth people's safety?!
ELRO ... I just want to be able to not ... think all the time
HIDING GIRL1 What have I done?! HIDING GIRL1 My hedonistic thoughts and curiosities got me to this dank and dirty place! Is this "the outdoors"? It's as horrible as the scriptures say! HIDING GIRL1 Now I am too frightened to even return! The Silver Watchman will have me thrashed!
BLACK A big difference is you're watched with eyes of contempt as your vision fades.
MINA But I think I need to say something to you. SAMBA Fine! Outside!
<From research notes> How can grass be grass, and then the next moment a body of water?
POLRO Sometimes it's easier not to think. POLRO You are special. I want you to be better than I am. POLRO Help people with what you have. Love others and they'll love you. POLRO Put the needs of others first. That's something I've been unable to do. POLRO I feel there is happiness there. If you just help, things will turn out well. POLRO It would make me happy.
MYRON These planet spines, below our feet! Those that carry the reprehensible creations that destroy lands and homes. ROYAL The Penance are protectors of salvation, guarding people that have to reside near those who sin! Do not slander them! MYRON I've become cognizant of many things. One of these being rural residences have only been founded on spines known to the Concern! ROYAL Well, of course, otherwise people could not be punished. MYRON Perhaps you were right, you are indeed special. MYRON These spines. They exist to define the shape of this planet. It seems Ivory depletion has made them act unbecoming. ROYAL That's not the purpose of the Penance! ! MYRON They obstruct my work! They make invalid decades of cartography, by reshaping the lands.
ROYAL It's a ritual, not execution! ! MYRON Clodpole. ROYAL Varmint! MYRON Gander. ROYAL Whatever ... guy! !
MYRON I have seen much in my excursions! Sentience that is not part of anybody's scripture! MYRON Not the ancestors of the Isi, not the doctrine of Mother. MYRON You likely could not affect that beast because its control of Ivory outdoes your own. MYRON I have a theory that this planet was built. What you have power over is synthetic! ROYAL You are completely mad! ROYAL So, who made the machine, then?! MYRON Well, I do not know that! Isn't that exciting? ROYAL So what's even your point?! ROYAL Someone created this planet? Yes, in fact, He did! For us! ROYAL This was our lovingly crafted home, made to save us, after the demise of the world from the Precedes! MYRON That legend tells of a world that turned to dust. Matter, deprived of Ivory, turns to dust. MYRON What does humanity deserve? ROYAL That's YOUR attitude! ROYAL This planet has more Ivory in it than any nearby thing in space! It generates new Ivory at incredible pace! This worls is a miracle! ROYAL Like the moons ! They lack the Spines , as you say, and they have worse existances for it! MYRON So the One Concern DOES research the moons! MYRON Then, indeed, the Concern Ivory these days is likely lunar! ROYAL ...... MYRON How much do our two peoples truly value the revitalizing powers of this planet, if they've broken that power through so much mining that one needs to go elsewhere? ROYAL This isn't a machine, damnit! ! You don't "break" our holy planet! It will revive after its rebirth by Nimbus' return! MYRON Is this another one of your dogmas?
MYRON The effectiveness of Ivory likely still makes your rocket launches viable for that, still! How ... fascinating!
MINA Maybe you need a faith that's not so ridiculously strict!
<Missing Name> We need the engineers back in here. The materials provided will attach the foundation of the new floor at an angle! We can't attach the floor's foundation until this has been fixed, damnit!
BLACK "I can't use my powers here! The evil demons must be fiddling with my veins! " BLACK "Yes, that's it."
MINA You didn't. I'm not sure how to feel ...
MINA You're somethin' else, Robin. I think your kindness and attempts at empathy could screw with things, though.
MINA You relocked the doors on her, huh? She'll get out. TOLO Ha-HAH! This is just amazing! TOLO Everything just falls into your favor, general! It's destiny! TOLO With Royal being a sinner, it could only mean this is all for you!
BLACK Humans need someone who cares and keeps them straight, or they become invisible, or they become mad
CHEMICO CONTRA It shouldn't be my business to share family secrets, but his principles are damaging. Sorry if that offends you. CHEMICO CONTRA Do you want to hear why Elro is being hunted? CHEMICO CONTRA Do you... ? Yes. No. CHEMICO CONTRA ... Really? Are you sure? CHEMICO CONTRA Consider... Tell me. Don't tell. CHEMICO CONTRA Hrm, alright. I can't insist. CHEMICO CONTRA Alright. It was a couple weeks ago ... CHEMICO CONTRA Among many things, Elro was upset about your father, Polro ... CHEMICO CONTRA I ... I feel he needs a lot of help to be honest. MINA Your brother is ... quite something. I hope you're okay. MINA Suddenly, the gods are mortal, huh?
ROYAL Oh. Strange. I had a feeling he was missing parts before.
ROYAL This is it. We are here. We are going to Him .
MINA I was kind of trying to be on this personl "world quest", looking for ways to counter the Concern.
ROYAL It's just being depleted faster than it regenerates, still. Mostly due to YOUR people harvesting Ivory from nearer the planet core!
MINA "Need stealth", my ass

Besides some spelling and formatting, the jokes in the early game stealth section were completely rewritten.
Did you guys see that bleach blonde girl in Settlement 16?
I once heard a joke about paper.
Yeah, I'd love to cheer from her bleachers, if you know what I mean!
It was tearable!
Hey, there are some sweet girls here too, did you see them?
Two people walk into a bar...
I'd let them sweeten the tea from my teabag, if you catch my drift!
They both had concussions!
These broads got nothin' on the girl I caught in Settlement 8.
Want to hear a joke about construction?
We had a settling night, if you see what I'm on about!
I'm still working on it.
I once took this girl's weaved carpet that I liked and she tried to hit me!
I was asked to put the cat out.
I wish she vacuumed my carpet, if you sink my lure! !
I didn't know it had caught fire!
Speaking of Settlement 8... !
Speaking of pet cats... !
There was this boy with the finest sculpted abs I ever did see...
Mine died the other week.
There was this pirate girl trying to steal barrels of water from one of our camps, but I caught her.
A friend thought about going on an all-pecan diet.
I wanted to plug that barrel!
That's just nuts!
