Quote Audio Background
What is it?
Must you disturb me?
Hmm? Oh, yes, the scythe is new to me as well, but I must admit... I'm starting to like it.
There are only two things that are inescapable... death and... Hmm. You know what? I forget what the second one was... Oh, let's just go with death twice. A play on the phrase "Only two things are inescapable; death and birth".
My, my... Death becomes you. Likely a reference to the 1992 Film "Death Becomes Her".
We, the Priests of Rathma, have been charged to maintain the Balance, but it seems many do not understand what it is.
Think of the Balance as a net... an unknowable safety net that keeps your soft pink insignificance from being consumed by oblivion. My charge is to maintain that net. Now, thank me!
The leader of the Necromancers is known as the Deathspeaker. Three guesses what he likes to talk about.
In my day no one would believe you if you said nephalem were real... and yet, here they are... and six of them no less! Rather excessive... isn't it?
You think this is difficult? Ha! You're not even playing in Hardcore mode!
You reap what you sow... and I sow the seeds of death.
Yes, I bring people back from the dead, but it's not a pretty picture. A reference to DIsney's Aladdin- the scene where Genie discusses his limitations.
For the last time, a necromancer does not romance the dead... that's a necro–you know what, nevermind. A joke about necromancers sometimes being confused with necrophiles, the latter being defined as "a person who is sexually attracted to corpses".
Someday I'm going to have to figure out something to do with all these ears I've collected. Maybe I'll make a belt or something.
Bring out your dead, you say? Don't mind if I do... A Monty Python reference.
Maintaining the Balance is difficult. But you buff an angel here, nerf a demon there, and the job gets done.
