You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Berig says, "Yar, well, this be the tranquil seaside hamlet of Seaside. Our main imports be grain and iron; our main exports be fish and wood. We be the third most populous town in Meridell, although we be havin' the lowest average family size. Would ye like to know more?"

—Conversation with Berig, Seaside

The village of Seaside is the fourth town in Meridell. After Rohane and Mipsy defeat the giant sand grundo in the lost city of Phorofor, a teleportation orb becomes available that transports the party to the southern Meridell continent which includes Seaside as well as Meridell Castle.

Storyline Edit

Uthare says, "Avast, this be a lovely place ta live, if I do say so myself. Plenty o' fresh sea air, more sticks than you kin shake a fish at, and neighbors who'll leave ye ta yer business, if ye be catchin' me drift. Although, lately, there be many strange folk passin' through the area. Probably something ta do with the troubles down 'round the castle way. Arrr."

—Conversation with Uthare, Seaside

While White River and eventually Meridell Castle are both struck with magical afflictions affecting its citizens, the towns of Trestin, Lakeside, and Seaside are mostly unaffected. Uthare mentions that "strange folk" have been seen passing through the area, and Uthyni mentions in terror that he heard (likely untrue) rumors of Ramtor's intent to ban the sale of fish.[1][2]

Inhabitants Edit

Seaside, compared to its sister town of Lakeside, is relatively small in both geographic size as well as population. As Berig mentions, Seaside boasts the third largest populace in Meridell however they have the lowest average family size.[3]

Delkon

Delkon

Delkon says, "Yar! Welcome to our little town o' Seaside, where ye can find the freshest fish on this side o' Meridell. I be a fisherman, meself, though mostly I fish fer the relaxation aspect. Ahoy, ye scurvy dog."

You say, "Uthare said to ask you about the troubles."

Delkon says, "Yar, did he now? Well, I suppose I be the resident authority on such things, though it pains me to think of them. Yar. Well, it seems that the king's advisor has overthrown him, and locked him away in some ruddy dungeon somewhere. I be not envying the king now, you can wager a brick of gold against a rotten fish on that."

You say, "What do you know about the advisor?"

Delkon says, "Avast, well, seems this advisor, Ramtor, was long a loyal advisor to the king, but of late he decided that power was more his style. I don't think he's killed the king, though no one's seen the old lad in weeks now. But it was about that same time that Ramtor laid his curse upon the land, and that's why we've got all these ruddy animals going berserk in the wilds."

You say, "How do you know so much about all this?"

Delkon spits on the floor and says, "Yar, just 'cause I be talkin' like a pirate, ye think I'm blind to the world? I did be visitin' the royal castle before the troubles started, and I did see a mad glint in that Ramtor's eye. I wouldn't want to go up against him, but I'd bet there are some who could." He raises an eyebrow at you. "Anyway, rumors and news do travel, and we be not very far from the castle. I keep track of the news, so that the others in town don't have to burden themselves."

Uthare

Uthare

Uthare says, "Yar! Ye be lookin' fer a brace o' potions, matey? Well then I be yer man! I be havin' the greatest lot o' potions this side o' the ocean! There's nary a landlubber who'd turn me down, let alone any honest seafarin' folk, matey."

You say, "Tell me about this town."

"Avast, this be a lovely place ta live, if I do say so myself. Plenty o' fresh sea air, more sticks than you kin shake a fish at, and neighbors who'll leave ye ta yer business, if ye be catchin' me drift. Although, lately, there be many strange folk passin' through the area. Probably something ta do with the troubles down 'round the castle way. Arrr."

You say, "What troubles?"

Uthare says, "Ay, well, there's the rub. Ye probably should be talkin' ta Delkon, just ta the south, in his house. He be knowin' more about that than me, I wager. Yar."

Berig

Berig

Berig says, "Ahoy! Ye be a scurvy scalawag if I've ever seen one. What be ye wantin'? A night in me quaint, rustic bed and breakfast? The fee be 125 pieces o' gold... I know it be soundin' high, but there been at least a twenty-two percent drop in tourism in recent weeks. Avast."

You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Berig says, "Yar, well, this be the tranquil seaside hamlet of Seaside. Our main imports be grain and iron; our main exports be fish and wood. We be the third most populous town in Meridell, although we be havin' the lowest average family size. Would ye like to know more?"

You say, "Uh... sure."

Berig says, "Avast, I can tell by the look in yer eyes that ye just be humorin' me. Well, not everyone can be as interested in statistics as I be. Well, shove off, ye scurvy... whatever ye are! Or rather... Arrr!" Berig makes vaguely threatening gestures at you."

You say, "What do you know about the troubles at the castle?"

Berig says, "Yar, ye talked to Delkon yet? He be knowin' the most about them things. Though they be affectin' us all. Why, before the troubles began, Seaside had the second lowest crime rate of any town in Meridell, but now we be hovering somewhere around number three or four." He pauses. "Arrr."

You say, "I'd like to rent a room for the night."

Berig says, "Aye, well, ye kin take the room on the right, as that be the guest room. Yar."

Gallar

Gallar

Gallar says, "Yar! Avast! Ahoy! Ye scurvy dog! Landlubber!" He pauses in thought, and adds, "Ye beardless pile of krawk droppings!" He nods, satisfied, and goes back to fishing.

Patannis

Patannis

Patannis says, "Yar! I do be the local arms and armour merchant, if that be what ye're lookin' for. Everything I be makin' is extra-strong. It has to be, to survive the salty sea air that would make normal armour rust."

Enlea

Enlea

Enlea says, "I've been very worried, I been, with all the trouble comin' out the castle down south. I do hope someone can straighten it all out."

Uthyni

Uthyni

Uthyni says, "Yar, what do ye want? I be fishin' here!"

You say, "What can you tell me about this town?"

Uthyni says, "Ahoy, ye be wantin' to know about the town? Then go talk to Berig... his house be just to the west. He be fascinated by numbers and statistics, although I do be findin' that very unbecoming of piratical folk. Yar."

You say, "Tell me about this town."

Uthare says, "Avast, this be a lovely place ta live, if I do say so myself. Plenty o' fresh sea air, more sticks than you kin shake a fish at, and neighbors who'll leave ye ta yer business, if ye be catchin' me drift. Although, lately, there be many strange folk passin' through the area. Probably something ta do with the troubles down 'round the castle way. Arrr."

You say, "What do you know about the troubles at the castle?"

Uthyni says, "Avast, ye be wantin' ta talk to Delkon if ye haven't already. I know little compared to he. Although..."

You say, "Yes?"

Uthyni says, "Arr, well, ye see, I heard a rumor, but Delkon wouldn't believe it. The rumor said that the usurper, Ramtor, was going to..." He looks around surreptitiously, as if afraid that someone will overhear. "Yar. It says that Ramtor was going to ban the sale of fish! Yar! Can ye believe it? How can we be makin' a livin' if he be banning our main export?"

You say, "I'm sorry to hear that. I'll see what I can do about him."

Uthyni says, "Avast, be that true? Arrr! I be cheerin' ye on in yer adventure, then. Ahoy, tell that scurvy brother of mine, Uthare, that ye be havin' me personal recommendation. He'll be givin' ya a discount at his shop fer that. Yar."

You slowly edge away from Uthyni.

Uthyni shakes his head sadly as you move away. He doesn't seem to notice. "Yar, what the world be comin' to these days..."
