Otto Goldstein: *Looks up at you briefly before going back to his paperwork* Ey there, now. What can a’ help ye with?
1. Nothing, actually. Just looking around.
2. I’m looking for work, actually. If you know where I can find some.
You: I'm looking for work, actually. If you know where I can find some.
Otto Goldstein: Work, ye say? *Eyes you doubtfully and rubs his beard* Ye have some interest in mining, do ye?
1. Mining? Actually, no. I prefer to stay on the surface, thanks.
2. It depends. What exactly do you need?
You: It depends. What exactly do you need?
Otto Goldstein: *Still sounding sceptical, he leans back and draws deeply from his pipe* Well, I’ve seen some curious folks come through m’door before who have turned out a’right. Maybe ye can help me?
Otto Goldstein: The lads and I had an operation goin’ right strong in the Eastern Cloakwood. We found plenty a’ decent veins and quality ore, and everythin’ seemed t’be goin’ quite well until... *He trails off for a few moments*
Otto Goldstein: Seems tha’ we dug too deep. Before we knew it, we’re swarmed by half a dozen monsters. They killed half me crew and sent th’ other half a’ runnin’ scared. It’s not safe there now fer us t’be minin’.
1. Monsters? You couldn’t pay me enough to stand up to one of those.
2. I believe I can handle monsters. What do you need from the mines?
You: I believe I can handle monsters. What do you need from the mines?
Otto Goldstein: *Stacking a few papers* Okay then, iffen yer sure? Five decent-sized lumps a’ ore is a’ good amount t’carry. Come back with that, and I’ll make it worth yet time.
You: I’ll do just that.
