Initial visit :
"Ho there, <Gender>!"
If Shamino in party :
"Good <Time of Day>, Stelnar." Shamino and Stelnar shake hands. "<Avatar Name>, this is Stelnar Starhelm."
"Pleased to meet you, <Gender> <Avatar Name>."
"I'm called Starhelm."
"Arvin? He seems a good sort."
"He's a bard. I do not really know him."
"Oh, yes. Brave fellow."
"Shamino and I travelled the Spiritwood together for a time."
"I am a monster-slayer."
"I hate all monsters. They are a blight on the face of Britannia!"
"For the past year I've been killing wisps and the like in Spiritwood."
"Wisps are nasty flickers, very hard to kill. Not like gargoyles, now."
"There's one that they call Sin 'Vraal."
"If I had my way, that gargoyle would be a statue."
"They turn to stone when ye slay them."
"That's drivel, friend Starhelm!" says Van Kellian.
"A gargoyle's a flesh and blood beast."
"Bards! A gargoyle is an ugly monster, and that's that."
"Van murmurs "Ugliness is but skin deep, just as beauty is."
"Gargoyle skin is very thick and deep, as everyone knows."
"Never trust anything ugly."
"He's a vicious daemon."
"Yes, Sin 'Vraal is an evil wretch."
"How could Lord British imagine that a gargoyle could understand virtue?"
"Lord British defeated Sin 'Vraal in the underworld."
"The gargoyle went to live in the Dry Land."
"'Tis a desert east of the Bloody Plains. There is a shrine there."
"I've never been to that desert, or the Shrine of Honesty."
"Farewell, <Avatar Name>."
"Have a pleasant <Time of Day>, <Gender>."
I cannot help ye with that."
