Dialogue and Mail

Introduction

Letter From Eshe

Dear (Player),
I hear you and my daughter are becoming friendly. Normally I would frown on this sort of fraternizing...but I must admit I need your help. My daughter has been very upset as of late, and has been making quite the ruckus. She even used a salad fork for her steak last night...on purpose! Could you please talk some sense into her???

Progression

Upon speaking to Kenyatta

Player
Your mom sent me to talk to you.
Kenyatta
Oh, this oughta be good if she sent someone else to do her dirty work.
What is it?

Player
She's mad about silverware?
Kenyatta
Oh my dragon, is this about the salad fork? She's ridiculous!
I can't do anything without her criticizing me, seriously. Who cares what kind of fork I use as long as it gets to my mouth??

Player
She thinks you're rebelling.
Kenyatta
She does, huh? Wonder what it's about this time. Did I cut my hair a little too short? Oh, maybe I stayed out too late?
No, you know what, I bet it was the fork. I knew that'd drive her crazy.

Ugh. Sorry, I know I sound like a total spoiled rich girl. Some people have actual problems, and here I am fighting with my mom.
It just... doesn't really seem fair. Her getting to decide everything about my life.
She's been pressuring me about declaring my Path. Apparently I'm "too old" to still be figuring my life out.

Player
Why haven't you declared yet?
Kenyatta
Because I don't know what I want yet. If my mom had her way, I'd go into governance. But that'd make me miserable.
Is it so much to want to be happy with the thing I'll be doing for the rest of my life?

Player
That IS unfair.
Kenyatta
You think so?
...Thanks, (Player). It's nice to know I'm not being totally ridiculous.
I just... want a chance to figure out what I actually like, first, before I decide to do it for the rest of my life.

Player (Fire)
Maybe I can help?
Kenyatta
Hmmm...
Y'know, I always kinda thought gardening sounded fun. Nai'o always seems so happy after a day of work.
Maybe that could be my Path? But I don't have any seeds or anything to try it out.
Do you think you could bring me some? I'll be sure to pay you back.


Upon giving Kenyatta the crop seeds

Player
I brought the seeds.
Kenyatta
Cool! So I just... stick them in dirt and wait? That doesn't sound so hard.
I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks, (Player).
Here, this should cover the cost.


Letter from Kenyatta

Dear (Player),
You are formally invited to the funeral of all my plants. Someone else has to mourn the death of my dreams with me. I don't even know what went wrong, I watered them every ten minutes? How does my dad make this look so easy??

Conclusion

Mourning with Kenyatta

Kenyatta
So, turns out gardening sucks, and I hate it, and I'm never doing it again.

Player
That was fast.
Kenyatta
Yeah, well. No point killing more plants just because I'm being stubborn.

Player
I know, it's so boring!
Kenyatta
Right? Like, what, I'm just supposed to sit there? Watch the grass grow?

Player
I'm in shock AND awe!
Kenyatta
Ha, ha. You coulda told me how boring it was before you gave me the seeds.

Player
It's not for everyone.
Kenyatta
Yeah, I figured that one out.

So, gardening's not my thing. That's fine, there's plenty of other things to try, right?
...
What else do people do?

Player
Have you tried designing clothes?
Kenyatta
Clothes, huh? I mean, I've always liked buying them.
Yeah, why not? I can ask Jel to give me some tips tomorrow.
It's so hard to find anything in my style out here anyways, might be kinda nice to make my own stuff.
Thanks, (Player). You're not so bad, y'know?

Player
Maybe you could try furniture making?
Kenyatta
Huh. I mean, sure, I guess everyone needs to sit, and someone has to make the chairs.
But then I'd have to ask Tish...
Ugh. Fine! But if she asks me to wear matching flowers I'm quitting right there.
Thanks, (Player). You're not so bad, y'know?


Notes

  • Players will get unique dialogues from either Jel or Tish depending on the option they suggested to Kenyatta.
