When first meeting him in Burrwitch Outskirts[edit | edit source]

Ulgrim

Well I'll be, a living person! I've been stranded out here since Burrwitch fell. Fortified myself on this little patch of island, cooking whatever critters get too close while waiting for the inevitable end. You're a welcome sight for sore eyes!

  1. Burrwitch fell months ago. How have you survived this long?Dialogue advances to section 2.
Ulgrim

Well, I can cook for one! I used to work in the capital and had the honor of preparing meals for a couple noble houses and many foreign dignitaries. I'm not a fighter but I've learned to hunt a bit when necessary. It gets me by. Scraps of bone rat aren't exactly fine dining though. Most of all, I just keep quiet and observe. What about you? Where do you hail from?

  1. We could use a cook. (Tell him about the prison)Dialogue advances to section 3.
  2. Sorry, I have no idea who you are. (Keep the prison to yourself)Dialogue advances to section 3A.
Ulgrim

This prison of yours sounds like heaven compared to my current dwelling. I bet I could do my share as well. Men fight better on full stomachs! How will we get all my equipment to Devil's Crossing?

  1. I can open a riftgate to safety. (Open Riftgate)Dialogue advances to section 4.
Ulgrim

Playing it close to the vest, eh? I can respect that, given the times. I assure you, I'm just an old cook doing his best to survive out here. Frankly, probably won't be doing much more surviving given the way things are looking out there.

  1. We could use a cook. (Tell him about the prison)Dialogue advances to section 3.
  2. Can't take the chance. Good luck, old man.Dialogue ends.
Ulgrim

A portal? I've only ever seen one of those before, and it wasn't spitting out the good guys. I really hope you're not trying to pull one on me. Here goes nothing.

  1. I'll see you in Devil's Crossing.Ulgrim is teleported to Devil's Crossing. The player gets the quest The Ironclad Chef. Dialogue ends.

When meeting him after teleporting him to Devil's Crossing[edit | edit source]

Ulgrim

Well, if it isn't my savior! I cannot thank you enough. I finally get to cook for other people again. Here, have some soup! Could use some salt, but Captain Whiskey over there insists that it's for combat use only.

  1. Glad you've settled in.The player receives the reward for the quest The Ironclad Chef. Dialogue advances to section 2.
Ulgrim

Stories told in Devil's Crossing[edit | edit source]

Ulgrim

Ever consider a bowl of Slith stew? Don't. They may eat us and it seems only fair we should eat them back but I tried boiling one once and it ruined a set of pots and ladles. Incidentally, I heard a strange tale once that the Slith were created by humans. The story went that the Emperor's general staff wanted an army that could fight effectively in the southern swamps.

Horrific human experimentation lead [sic] to the creation of a reptilian humanoid but they were uncontrollable, escaped captivity and began to breed out in the wilds. I'm sure that's just a legend though.

I served a follower of Dreeg once. Now, I don't normally judge a man based on his beliefs, but those people believe in some twisted stuff. The all-seeing eye, the hidden realm the witch gods supposedly reside in, how Dreeg is the watcher that guards the way. No wonder they're so uptight if they think someone is staring at them all the time! It's funny though, apparently someone was watching him after all.

Not long after we parted ways, an inquisitor took him in for questioning and he was never seen again. At least, that's what I heard.

One thing still bothers me about the way events unfolded during the Grim Dawn. I was working in the capital during the weeks prior to attack and I remember two of the three legions there were dispatched to remote provinces for seemingly no reason. It seemed very peculiar to me at the time that they would leave the capital so exposed but, then again, I'm just a simple cook. Who am I to question the workings of the military?

When I was young, I had the misfortune to witness a banquet that was thrown for the five Pathfinders of the biggest Rover bands at the time. It was supposed to be a peace offering but none of them left alive. The government thought the Rovers would disband once their leaders were dead but they just chose new ones and moved on.

I regret how they were persecuted in the past but it seems generations spent roaming the wilderness and back roads of these lands while evading agents of the empire prepared them well for the Grim Dawn. They seem to be weathering it better than most and have taken in many refugees from the empire that once hunted them.

Don't discount the effectiveness of piercing weapons. They may not have the raw damage dealing power of a heavy mace or brutal axe but their ability to penetrate armor can be very effective against more heavily armored foes. At least, that's what I've heard and, you know, my profession has made me very familiar with blades. Being a cook, I mean.

Prior to the Grim Dawn, I served a meal to some gentlemen in the capital who were deep in conversation about a remarkable new method of travel using arcane gateways. They said it would allow the Emperor's armies, stationed in the capital, to appear almost instantly in the furthest provinces. Imagine to what lengths the emperor's general staff would go to procure such a decisive military advantage.

You know, hearing myself say it, it sounds very similar to that portal you used to rescue me from the swamp.

Did I tell this one already? I once had to deal with a particularly rude dignitary from the capital who had even slighted the Emperor! The man made a huge fuss about his food being bland, so I whipped him up a little chef's special filled with my strongest spices. Let's say he ran out of there spilling from both ends. Oddly enough, I heard he died the next day. I hope it didn't have anything to do with the spices I used.

I've served more than a few men and women whose ambition and lust for power exceeded their good sense. There are limits to human advancement and when we grasp beyond our ability, it inevitably leads to calamity. Sorry, that's a bit heavy for mealtime conversation. What would I know; I am but a cook?

How much do you know of the former Warden? Rumors of Krieg's strange and violent behavior even reached my ears in the distant capital. When he failed to respond to multiple summons, an agent was dispatched from the capital to... resolve the situation. Unfortunately, the Grim Dawn was unleashed before the man could reach Krieg. At least, I assume that must be what happened.

Have you run into the Bloodsworn yet? The fanatical cult devoted to the supposed elder god Ch'thon? The cult has existed forever; some say before recorded history. I always thought the myth of an elder god betrayed and gruesomely dismembered was too fantastical to be anything but the stuff of theatre but since the Grim Dawn, it seems the cult has newfound power and desperate men flock to swell their ranks.

(The player has to selectContinueto advance dialogue.)

When I was wandering the outskirts of Burrwitch, I came upon their cultists who pressed me to join their ranks. At first they wouldn't take no for an answer but I treated them to some hearty stew and then they troubled me no further. Never underestimate the power of good cooking.
