Dialogue[edit]

Once you reach the outdoor area of the tomb complex, Kjalnar can be seen in one of the balconies and will goad his compatriots to stop you:

Kjalnar Tombskald: "Persistent, aren't we? Hear me, Draugrkin! Do not let these troublemakers reach the center of the tomb!"

When you enter the Pit of Sorrows, Kjalnar Tombskald will be waiting. Shelaria will be eager to kill him, only to be stopped:

Shelaria: "Kjalnar! I'll kill you for what you've done!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "By all means, try. Our patron demanded the remains of the Gray Host. What's the harm in adding a few more corpses?"
Fennorian: "Shelaria! Arta vare! Sleep now."
<Shelaria falls asleep and is taken out of the fight.>
Fennorian: "She's in no condition to fight. Go! Kill that fiend!"

If you delay fighting him, he will taunt you:

Kjalnar Tombskald: "What I accomplish here shall never be matched."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Our patron can have his bones and ashes. I come to claim something far greater!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Whatever preparations you're making, it will not be enough. You are overmatched."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Death can only be delayed for so long …."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Hrmm. Do I smell … cowardice?"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "You came to do battle. Let's get on with it."

During the fight he will shout one of the following:

Kjalnar Tombskald: "I'll cleave your bones in twain!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "I'll feed you to the pit!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Bone and ash, unleash your fury!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Beneath your feet, there is only death!"
Kjalnar Tombskald: "I cast the bones, and your future is bleak!"

Midway, he will have completed the summoning of Tzirzhalir:

Kjalnar Tombskald: "The time has come. Rise, Tzirzhalir. I call you by name! Rise!"

Group Wipe Dialogue:

Kjalnar Tombskald: "Dead, eh? Just toss their bones in with the others."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Dead already? What a disappointment."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Killed in a grave. Convenient."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Just another notch in the belt."
Kjalnar Tombskald: "Barely broke a sweat. Pitiful."
