Messages

Entry

First time:

Uh-oh. This place is called hemorrhagic hospital now?
You remember a time when you, the diseased heir and many others were
children, happily playing in the sandbox and going to your wise
doctor for an ointment if anyone of you started bleeding.
It's that damnable curse which you were always afraid of - if any
of you started bleeding, it just wouldn't stop for a long time.
Even minor cuts could prove deadly if you didn't reach your doctor
in time.
But now it seems the diseased heir and the other brethren are facing
even worse times. The presence of a hospital might mean some of them
are even close to dying! Certainly this is why the diseased heir is
calling for you!
You must hurry and try to rescue everyone who can be rescued!

Next time:

Once again, you stand before hemorrhagic hospital.  It is obvious that the diseased heir
needs your help.

If already rejected twice due to bad alignment:

Again, and you think possibly for the last time, you stand before
hemorrhagic hospital.

Quest guardians

It should be noted that all quest guardians are generated as corpses, so the only way to see these messages is to revive them, which will anger your deity.

If #chatting before the quest is complete:

AUUUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHHHHHH, THE PAIN... PLEASE MAKE IT STOP...
WHY THE HELL DID YOU HAVE TO REVIVE ME?
BEING DEAD WAS PAINLESS! NOW, THANKS TO YOU, I'M SUFFERING AGAIN!
MAY WHATEVER GOD YOU PRAY TO DISINTEGRATE YOU IN THE MOST PAINFUL WAY!
CURSE YOU, RETARDED NECROPHILIAC! LEAVE OUR CORPSES ALONE AND FUCKING 
KILL ME AGAIN SO THE FUCKING PAIN FUCKING STOPS!

If #chatting after the quest is complete:

HRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! THIS VIOLENT PAIN NEVER STOPS! PLEASE JUST KILL ME!
CAN'T YOU JUST KILL ME AGAIN? PLEASE! PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!
DON'T YOU GET IT? THERE IS NOTHING TO LIVE FOR! I'D RATHER BE DEAD!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
ARGH! *COUGH* *COUGH* HRGH! OOFF! AAAAAAAAH! JIIIIIEEEAAAAAARRRRGGGHHHHH
HNNNNNNNGH *OW!* *OW!* ... CAN'T... TAKE... IT... ANYMORE...

Quest leader

When you first meet your quest leader:

"<playername>, hurry up! All of my brethren have died fighting the Bloody Beauties!
You're the only one left alive, and I'm incapacitated, so you will
have to avenge them!
By the love of <deity>, don't disturb their well-earned rest. They honorably
fell in battle and aren't suffering any more. If you mess with their
corpses, they will have to feel the unthinkable pain of being scratched
open by the Bloody Beauties all over again. Don't revive them, I beseech you! Let them
sleep their eternal slumber!
I sure hope you're ready, <playername>!"

When you return, having been rejected due to lack of experience:

"<playername>, please tell me you're up to your task now!"

This message is not currently used:

"<playername>, this is your last chance before inevitable doom meets us all!"

When you are expelled from the quest for having failed the alignment test seven times:

"Sigh...

<playername>, this is the end. The time of my demise is here, as my condition
is fatal. I fear the same will apply to you very soon, but please.
Fulfill my last wish, and avenge me and my brethren by defeating the Bloody Beauties.
See you in the afterlife..."

When being rejected due to lack of experience:

"<playername>, I fear the Bloody Beauties will make you bleed to death if you try to fight them.
Hurry up and train your skills, or all will be lost!"

When being rejected due to having worse than pious alignment:

"You don't seem to have enough faith in your own abilities, <playername>!
I fear that if you go on, the Bloody Beauties will cause you to die in a pool of your
own blood. Practice if you must and then hurry back to me at once!"

When finally assigned the quest:

"You're my last hope, <playername>. 
All of my remaining brethren are dead, and I don't have much longer
to live either. The Bloody Beauties scratched our legs so badly, everyone but me
bled to death, and my wounds are eventually going to be fatal too.
But you still look relatively healthy. You must travel to red-sprinkled battle area and
fight to the death. the Bloody Beauties will try to kill you as well, but you must
defeat them. It's the only way to avenge my dead brethren.
And I once again beg you not to disturb the peaceful slumber of the
deceased. <deity> will be very angry if you do, to say nothing of the
fact that our brethren will experience nothing but relentless pain
and extreme misery if you bring them back to the living."

Encouragement

If you subsequently chat to your quest leader, you are encouraged:

"Do your best, and hurry up!"
"Only you can defeat the Bloody Beauties now!"
"<playername>, your task is of extreme importance. 
You and your friends are dead if you fail!"
"Please hurry and defeat the Bloody Beauties before you bleed to death!"
"Don't forget to heal up regularly!"
"May <deity> protect you from harm."
"Don't allow the Bloody Beauties to defeat you too, or we will all be doomed!"
"Get on your way to red-sprinkled battle area before it's too late!"
"If you fail, this will mark the end of our kin! You must succeed 
in your fight against the Bloody Beauties!"
"You and me are the last descendants of an old kin cursed with
hemophilia. If you die, we will become extinct!"

Locate and goal levels

When first entering the locate level:

You weep at the sight of your dead brethren.
But you know you may not bring them back to life, since they won't
be able to help you in any way if you do. According to the diseased heir they
would be tortured by eternal suffering instead, and you really don't
want your brethren to have a fate worse than death.

When returning:

Once again you gaze at the gory skeletons of your dead brethren.

When first entering the goal level:

You vomit upon seeing so many blood-smeared corpses.
This is the doing of the Bloody Beauties! They have killed so many of your kin that
you decide to stop at nothing until their poor souls have been avenged.

When returning:

Once again you enter red-sprinkled battle area, having to resist the urge to vomit.

Quest nemesis

When first encountering the quest nemesis:

"Welcome, dear <playername>, welcome.
We are sure you're just as thrilled as we are, for you're about to
engage in combat with us. Fight well or die well!"

Upon further meetings:

"We already love your legs, <playername>; they're so wonderfully sensitive
to being scratched."

And on the 4th and subsequent meetings:

"It's so much fun dancing with you, sweet <playername>!"

When you have the Bloody Beauty, but the Bloody Beauties are still alive:

"Wait! We don't belong to you yet!
We're sorry, but now we'll have to kill you, <playername>."

Discouragement

The Bloody Beauties will occasionally utter maledictions:

"Do you like it if we scratch your legs with our heels?"
"Do you like it if we use our heels to step on your toes?"
"We love seeing you bleed, <playername>."
"Let's dance!"
"Want to feel us up? Go ahead, we're very fleecy."
"If you can defeat us, we're yours. Good luck!"
"Come on <playername>, continue fighting."
"We will use any opportunity to scratch along your leg."
"Do you like high heels, <playername>?"
"Our heels are eager to scratch your skin and draw your blood."

Victory

When picking up your quest artifact:

You carefully pick up the Bloody Beauty.
Such a dangerous weapon... capable of causing fatal leg-scratches...
But maybe she will allow you to wield her if you ask nicely?

When killing the nemesis:

Ultimately, after a long and grueling fight, you have defeated the Bloody Beauties.
Severely battered and bleeding heavily, you listen to what they have
to say:
    "Congratulations, <playername>! At last someone managed to defeat us. And as you
    know, defeat means friendship. We, or one shall rather say, the Bloody Beauty,
    is yours for the taking. Thanks a lot for this wonderful fight!
    In the form of the Bloody Beauty, we will accompany you wherever you go, and we hope
    you'll put us to good use!"

When returning to your quest leader:

The diseased heir speaks:
"The spirits of the dead are now avenged. Thank you so much, <playername>.
I will die, but you may actually save our kin yet. Use the silver bell
that you found on red-sprinkled battle area, and then come back to me; if I'm not dead yet by
that point, I can tell you what to do."

When subsequently throwing the Bloody Beauty to the diseased heir:

The diseased heir looks at your Bloody Beauty and speaks:
"I'd rather had the Bloody Beauties destroyed forever, but it seems the Bloody Beauty declared you
her BFF. So be it. The one who nearly wiped out our kin decided to fight us
no longer, and actually lets you use her.
Then we will depart now, and remember: our kin's fate lies in your hands, <playername>!
Farewell and good luck!"

Post-quest

When talking to the diseased heir after the quest:

"<playername>... don't have much longer to live... you must use the bell to
open the way to the Amulet of Yendor... argh..."

When talking to the diseased heir after getting the Amulet:

With his last dying breath, the diseased heir mutters:
"Y... you h-have it... g-g-g-otta... get... totheastralplane to - 
*cough* *cough* ascend ...
... and b-become... im ... mor ... tal ..."

Miscellaneous

When being rejected for permanently changing alignment:

"*sob* You... lost your faith in <deity>??? *sob*
This is the end. We will all die, including you and me.
Please leave me alone and allow me to cry until my eyes are dry."

When talking to the diseased heir while carrying the Bloody Beauty, but the Bloody Beauties are still alive:

"W-... huh, you have the Bloody Beauty? How on earth did you get them?
Something tells me this is not the end, and your quest is still
incomplete. Please go back and make sure the Bloody Beauties is no longer a threat!
You're my last hope!"
