Notable quotesEdit

  • "The Legion is aware of your mercenary ways and has decided to encourage you work for us rather than against us. I've provided you the location of a drop box. Every few days, we'll place Legion coin inside. (Mixed 2+)"
  • "Though you aren't of the Legion, you've aided us more than once. We acquire many items on our raids, some useless to us, some forbidden. I've provided you the location of a drop box where you can obtain these items. The box will be replenished every few days. Please be aware that we'll assume any items left in the box will be unwanted and be removed and destroyed. (Good 2+)"
  • "My message to you has been delivered, and I've got other places to be."
