    NPC: Scutty

     

    Player: hi
    Scutty: Hi there.
    Player: human
    Scutty: Human society has been polluted by the taint of magic like many of Tibia’s civilisations.
    Player: society
    Scutty: Sadly, even my own people distrust us and our technology to some extent. They think we are ‘different’ and some of the ancients condemn us because we don’t align ourselves with the elemental forces. …
    Scutty: It’s not that we don’t honour the elements, we do. But we have a different approach to honouring the elements. …
    Scutty: This difference is the source of the distrust, but despite this, our inventions have become an integral part of dwarven society and we are acknowledged for our accomplishments.
    Player: magic
    Scutty: Magic is unreliable, restrictive and hampers progress. …
    Scutty: I know, you’re thinking ‘he’s just jealous and wants technomancy to get more attention’ but it’s not only technology that is held back by the quick fixes magic provides – society suffers as well. …
    Scutty: Consider this. There is a spell for everything so nobody tries to find alternative solutions for their problems – the need for creative thinking disappears and people become lazy. …
    Scutty: People become trapped by their superstions because they know someone only needs to mutter a few words to turn them into a frog and suddenly, the whole world is full of people putting the evil eye on you. …
    Scutty: They blame fate for their problems rather than taking responsibility for their own lives. . …
    Scutty: Of course, some of these arguments could be used against technology, but at least there is skill and thought behind technology, not just some hocus pocus gobbledygook!
    Player: technomanc
    Scutty: Regardless of what those narrowminded spellcasters claim, technomancy is a science in its own right. It is much more precise than dabbling in magic and incomprehensible forces. …
    Scutty: And, what’s more, it’s based on logical thinking – not some freaky talent you have to be born with. …
    Scutty: Of course I understand why you humans prefer to rely on chance and childrens’ rhymes without having any true understanding of what you are doing. …
    Scutty: As a technomancer, you can at least work out your mistakes because they are based on logic, even if the mistake you have made is likely to have blown someone up . …
    Scutty: That does not make our interaction with dwarven society an easy one, but we get along well enough.
    Player: dwarf
    Scutty: Dwarfs are a race apart – a unique race. …
    Scutty: I can fully understand the fact that other races such as humans and … um … elves and orcs and … um … cyclopes and … hm … flies and so on are in awe of us. But for us, our genius is an everyday fact of life. …
    Scutty: Nevermind, human. Your inferiority is not your fault. Not every race can be as gifted as we are. Not that I mean to be rude or anything.
    Player: elves
    Scutty: Hah! Elves! So blinded by their attachment to magic. If you were to ask them how a bow and arrow worked, they would probably tell you the spirits of the air carry their arrows to the hearts of their enemies! …
    Scutty: They don’t have the slightest idea of mechanics or physics.
    Player: golem
    Scutty: Yes, yes. Fascinating issue. Hmm. Let’s see .. I don’t know too much about golems themselves, but I have a good idea about the mechanics involved. After researching some material that Telas sent me I was able to work out some crucial information. …
    Scutty: Using the information I have put together, Telas should be able to pass on the specs to the blacksmiths. At least he can get the mechanical components organised.
    Player: Telas
    Scutty: Ah, yes, Telas. Quite smart for someone that tall.
    Player: mechanic
    Scutty: Oh please. If you don’t know what mechanics are about, go and find another dwarf who has a century to spare to explain it all to you. …
    Scutty: I have more important things to do than show a human what a spanner is for.
    Player: yalahar
    Scutty: From what has reached my ears it’s quite a sight. I am not a big traveller so I don’t really have an opinion and wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the truth and exaggeration. …
    Scutty: But the word is that these Yalahari don’t care much about keeping their machines in a good shape. What are they thinking of? Don’t they know that a machine must be tended and cared for? …
    Scutty: There is something odd going on in that city, I tell you. No-one who builds such wonders grows that careless.
    Player: yalahari
    Scutty: Strange people, but that’s no surprise considering they are not dwarfs. They had a good hand for technology though. Unfortunately they mixed it with magic which to my mind is as bad as watering beer, a crime! …
    Scutty: Still, there is certainly a lot to be learned from their inventions. But they keep their secrets well guarded. I can understand and appreciate that.
    Player: machine
    Scutty: What kind of a silly question is that? But fine: a machine is something that can do everything you can but twice as efficiently. And no, despite these qualities it doesn’t have a tail, fur and above all, it doesn’t eat bananas!
    Player: invention
    Scutty: My greatest invention was the improved lift system that we used on the farms. It was by far more efficient and fast than the old ones. And what did those technophobic dwarfs go and do? …
    Scutty: They made me a lift boy out of gratitude! They insisted that I had to operate it to guarantee its safety. What a joy I tell you! ‘Lift me up Scutty’ the whole stupid day! …
    Scutty: Great! It took years for them to get used to the lift and let me move on to my other projects.
    Player: job
    Scutty: As you can see, I’m the tooth fairy. I collect children’s teeth and wear a tutu and fly. …
    Scutty: Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer! What do you think all these machines are for? Why are my hands black with machine oil and why am I wearing a tool belt? No, I am not an unhygienic tooth fairy. …
    Scutty: I am a technomancer! Master of machines and mechanics!
    Player: name
    Scutty: Scutty is the name. I’ll spare you the part that only dwarfs can pronounce.
    Player: bye
    Scutty: Yeah, bye.
