This article is about the members of the Tamriel Guard located in PvE zones. For the PvP guards, see Pact Guard (Cyrodiil).

Pact Guards are guards found throughout Ebonheart Pact territory. They wear heavy armor in a style specific to their race, and carry two-handed weapons or a one-handed weapon and shield. Argonian guards are found in Black Marsh, Dunmer guards are found in Morrowind, and Nord guards are found in Skyrim.

Dialogue[edit]

Pact Guards pull from the dialogue pools of all three Pact races.

Female Argonian[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"You can't escape, criminal!"
"Cease your movement!"
"Halt at once!"
"No sudden moves!"
"Erect the spine of surrender!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"I erect the spine of 'pay your bounty so I can get back to my patrol.'"
"Sithis can't forgive your crimes, but you are in luck. The law accepts gold."
"Surrender, scum! That means "give up." I know, I know ... small words, short sentences."
"I erect the spine of judgement. Will you pay your fine?"
"I do believe I'm supposed to ask you to pay your fine. Or was I going to offer you a glass of wine?"
"When life hands you a rotten mudcrab, your only option is to pay your fine and beg for the law's mercy."
"Great news! You get to pay my salary. I hope you've been busy, I could use a raise."
"I love collecting bounties. I always wanted to be a poorly dressed, underpaid tax-collector."
"Real law enforcement is so boring. Why stop crimes when you can just stand around demanding bounties?"
"Keep your hands away from your weapons ... or just stand there like an idiot. That works too, I guess."
"Time to pay the fine. Are you going to need help counting it? Basic arithmetic––a criminal's bane."
"Don't you just hate guards hassling you for bounties? Almost makes you want to stop committing crimes…."
"Surrender, scum! That means 'give up.' I know, I know…small words, short sentences."
"I erect the spine of 'pay your bounty so I can get back to my patrol."
"I don't make the fines. I just collect the bounty. Now pay up or I'll get rough with you.'"
"The mud of justice has finally caught up with you. You're under arrest."
"Pay your bounty and no one will get hurt. Except me. Trouble at home, you know?"
"Please, no sad tale of your innocence. I couldn't bear to listen. Just pay your bounty."
"I'm probably wasting my time, but I'll ask anyway. Will you pay your bounty?"
"I'm not a judge or a jury. I'm just here to collect your bounty."
"You're not going to pay your bounty, are you?"
"Your crime is like a blockage in the river of your soul. I can clear it up if you pay your bounty."
"Let me help you clear your soul. Hand over your bounty and I'll put in a good word next time I pray."
"Crime is a dank cloud of noxious vapor. Pay your bounty and let the winds of justice prevail."
"Meditation will ease your mind, but the demands of justice require solid, immutable gold."
"Why did you have to break the law? Now you have to pay the bounty."
"How does this go again? Um, yes ... 'Stop, criminal, and pay the bounty for your crimes.'"
"I was on a break, having a few drinks, when I noticed your criminal face."
"You're a very bad person, and I'm ... I'm going to take your bounty, all right?"
"Forget something, toad? Resist if you want, but it's tough to hop away with broken legs."
"I don't have a problem, you have a problem! You know what your problem is? You committed a crime!"
"There are many paths through the forest of life. For you? I think you best option is to pay your fine."
"Look, I'm new at this, so why don't you help me out and just pay the bounty?"
"If you run, you won't get away. Because I'll run after you. So just pay the bounty."
"It's the bounty or a shallow grave––you decide."
"Pay the bounty or lose a limb. Mine grow back. Do yours?"
"I've got a great epitaph for your tombstone. 'Did not pay bounty.' Has a nice ring to it."
"Back home we'd take a finger for each crime. Sadly, we deal in gold here. Lucky you."
"I'm here to collect––your bounty or your head. You strike me as the 'bounty' type. More's the pity."
"I know you committed that crime, so don't try to confuse me. Just pay the bounty."
"Know the best thing about being a guard? I don't have to pay a bounty for breaking your pelvis."
"Your crimes are known. Pay the bounty or suffer the fangs."
"You break the law, I break your jaw. Unless you pay the bounty of course."
"I may be drunk, but you're a criminal! Now, have a drink and pay your fine."
"Don't try to run from me. Because I'll…I'll chase you. Just pay the bounty, all right?"
"I don't know why people can't just be nicer. I mean––pay the bounty, criminal scum."
"You! I'm talking to you, criminal! You owe a bounty, so hand it over!"
"When life hands you a rotten mudcrab, your only option is to pay your fine and beg for the law's mercy."
"Let's pay your bounty and finish this so I can get back to my cups. Uh, patrol."
"My mind is a cloudy bog today. Still, there's no reason we can't settle your bounty peacefully."
"You're a criminal. And I'm not as thunk as you drink I am. Wait…."
"You soul is covered in mud. Pay your bounty and let the rain of justice wash you clean."
"I do believe I'm supposed to ask you to pay your fine. Or was I going to offer you a glass of wine?"
"Halt, lawbreaker. I have come to claim your bounty. Pay now or you will drink mud."
"I erect the spine of urgency. Render payment on your bounty now. Quickly, dryskin."
"The fruit of crime is tough and bitter, mud-mouth. It is also costly. Pay your bounty or die."
"You swim in troubled water, lawbreaker. Best pay your bounty now. The slaughterfish are circling."
"The people call for justice ... and restitution. Pay your bounty and you may escape my wrath."
"Pay your fine, villain, or we will battle! As soon as I remember where I left my sword…"
"Criminal, will you pay your fine before I…wait, what was I saying? Anyway, about your bounty."
"Have you seen an outlaw around here? I'm supposed to collect a bounty, but I can't seem to…oh, it's you!"
"Don't you get cocky with me, criminal! Pay your fine or face my wrath!"

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"Pleasure doing business with you."
"Praise the egg! The bounty is paid."
"Wait, you paid? Oh thank you!"
"Well, that went better than expected."
"I'm supposed to be done here, move along."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"You expect me to let you go then? Sure why not."
"Oh fine. I feel like I'm in the wrong line of work."
"Oh, this will be fun. I can arrest you later for a bigger bounty."
"I can't do that, you're going to jail. Just kidding, you can go."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"Attack the guard? Great idea!"
"I expected more of you, villain!"
"I knew you would be trouble."
"Suicide by guard? So be it!"
"One of us will regret this!"
"I expected more of you, villain!"
"You were hatched from a rotten egg!"
"Was I not intimidating?"
"I'll tell my superior about this!"
"Now you've done it!"
"I'll make a drum out of your hide!"
"Now I'm angry."
"Finally some action!"
"This will cost you, vermin!"
"This is entirely your fault!"
"Didn't I ask for your surrender?"
"Didn't I warn you not to do that?"

Male Argonian[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"Hold, criminal!"
"I found you!"
"Halt and surrender!"
"Stand still, criminal!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"I've had a hard day. Don't give me any grief, criminal scum!"
"I hate to claim an egg before it hatches, but I assume you will pay your bounty?"
"My scales moisten in your presence. I desire much from you, but I must settle for your bounty."
"I'm sorry, but I must demand your bounty. I'm sure you understand."
"There's no cause to fear me. I'm here to help you pay your bounty."
"We all forget things in the midst of our hectic lives. So I'm here to remind you to pay your fine."
"Uh, yeah, that's right. I represent the town guard. So, uh, pay the bounty, all right?"
"We must all face the consequences of our actions eventually. That's just how the river flows."
"Well met! I know you plan to pay your fine. I'm here to accommodate your needs."
"I'm here to collect your bounty. Then we can put this unfortunate business behind us."
"Good friend, it seems you forgot to take care of the bounty hanging over you."
"I must insist you pay your bounty. Justice shall be served."
"You'd think I'd find this more exciting, but no. Anyway, will you yield and pay your fine?"
"My scales blush at your beauty, but I must ask for your bounty."
"Neither of us wants to be here, but here we are. So, can I collect your bounty now?"
"What did you do? No, don't tell me, I'd rather not know. Just pay your bounty and be on your way."
"Another criminal? Why am I not surprised? I suppose you want to pay your bounty now?"
"My records indicate you owe a bounty for a past crime. And my records are never wrong."
"Such beauty––why must it be so savage? You must pay for your criminal transgressions."
"I am drawn by your musk, but also by my duty. Please. Do not make me scar such a pretty face."
"You are a shining fish caught in a foul current, but you can still return to the river's flow."
"Sometimes the law moves at the speed of mud flowing uphill. If you pay now, I'd be grateful."
"Bright flowers often have poison barbs. Is it the same with you? I will not be beguiled."
"I've heard every excuse, so spare me and just pay your bounty."
"Even the prettiest saplings must be pruned. Especially when they branch into criminal activity."
"I regret that we come from opposite sides of the river. Only your bounty can pass between us."
"If I'm not interrupting anything important, I'd like to secure your bounty now."
"Pay your bounty and maybe I'll let you walk away."
"I do hope you're not a violent sort. I much prefer to deal with civilized lawbreakers."
"You did some crime. Now you pay a bounty."
"You have to pay a bounty because you're a bad person."
"You're a bad person. Pay the fine."
"Why did you do such a bad thing?"
"I can take your gold now."
"The captain says you must pay 'restitution.' Whatever that means."
"Know what we do with criminals around here? Pay your bounty, and you won't have to find out."
"Bounty's too nice for the likes of you."
"You don't want to pick a fight with me. Pay your bounty or else."
"I've heard every excuse, so spare me and just pay your bounty."
"You'd think I'd find this more exciting, but no. Anyway, will you yield and pay your fine?"
"Another criminal? Why am I not surprised? I suppose you want to pay your bounty now?"
"You need to be careful. I'm a volcano of raw emotion and I'm ready to explode!"
"Take care, or collecting your bounty won't be an option. Bleeding on the ground? That's always an option."
"You can pay your bounty, or I can beat the snot out of you. Your choice."
"My last prisoner? Stabbed himself in the back, after roughing himself up a bit. Hint, hint."
"You should be careful. I'm an egg on a precipice and I'm about to crack!"
"Pay your bounty, criminal scum. Just pay it! I was having a bad day before I saw your ugly face."
"I've got you surrounded. Don't make me nervous! I get all twitchy when I'm nervous."
"Don't move. Pay your bounty and you can go. Did you move? I'd better not see you move. I'm warning you!"

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"Ah friend! All is forgiven."
"Compensation for your debt has been received!"
"I erect the spine of bashful farewell."
"All right, I guess we're done here."
"Farewell, luscious flower."
"A pleasure, cleaning your record."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"All right, but don't try my patience again."
"Fine, but if you try something, so help me."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"You just cracked the egg, scum!"
"You can't outrun the wamasu!"
"The wind of justice must blow."
"I'll make this painless as possible!"
"I tried to be nice about this."
"You should have paid the gold."
"The grass wanes in the wind and I do not!"
"I knew this would happen!"
"The wind of justice must blow!"
"Why did you try to run?"
"You crossed the wrong guard, villain!"
"You're leaving? Over my dead body!"
"Should have paid the bounty."
"Now I get to hit you!"
"And I thought I wouldn't hit anything today!"
"You trifled with the wrong guard, villain!"


Female Dunmer[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"You will stop, criminal!"
"Hold it, s'wit!"
"Hold, scum!"
"Halt, damn you!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"If it were up to me, we'd dispense with this bounty business and kill the lot of you."
"By the Three, my rights and duties. Ha! Right now my right and duty is to squeeze you for gold."
"I don't suppose it's your fault. I suppose your parents simply didn't teach you any better."
"This place was nice until the likes of you came along. Pay up."
"The criminal element is irredeemable. But I'm still required to collect your bounty."
"Your bounty now, if you please."
"Pay your bounty and you can go about your business."
"I have a poem for you: What oh what will the criminal do? Pay the bounty or get run-through?"
"You owe a fine. Will you pay?"
"There's nothing I'd like more than to gut you, but I'm supposed to ask you to pay your bounty."
"The law demands recompense for your criminal acts."
"You are free to go, as soon as you pay your bounty."
"We can do this the pay-your-fine way or the tear-you-to-pieces way. Your pick."
"Here's what we do: pay your bounty, or I start cutting off important parts of your body."
"I've seen cliff-racers that are scarier than you. Pay the bounty."
"You owe a bounty and I'm here to collect."
"Pay the bounty…if scum like you even has that kind of money."
"Lawbreakers like you make me sick. Pay the bounty and get out of my sight."
"Oh, good. Another criminal. Which will it be? The bounty or my weapon in your ribs?"
"Pay your bounty and we'll have no trouble."
"You can pay the bounty or fight, and I love to fight."
"The criminals around here used to have class. Now it's all dirt and bloodstains."
"You pay your bounty, or we find out what kind of pattern your blood makes when it hits the ground."
"I've met a lot of criminals, but you don't have the look. I have no idea why your name is on my list."
"You don't look like you can afford to pay your bounty. No way you have enough gold."
"You're a criminal? Really? I don't think so. Still, if you insist on paying a bounty, I'll accept it."
"What's that? You owe a bounty? Not you! I don't believe it. But if you insist, I'll take your gold."
"Innocent? Everyone says that. You know the next best thing? Paying your bounty!"
"If you're a criminal, then I'm an Argonian's uncle! But I'll take your bounty if it will make you happy."
"Everybody wants to pay me a bounty. It must be my face. It has that 'you can trust me' quality."
"If you were a real criminal, I don't suppose I would've caught you. You still need to pay me, though."
"We can sweep all this down the kwama hole for the right price…."
"The Tribunal is just and forgiving. I am not the Tribunal. Gold. Now."
"Going to give me a sour look, ay? Well the cost just went up. Cough it up, s'wit!"
"Dragging your feet isn't going to make this easier, f'lah. I've got all the time in the world."
"I'm not surprised you turned out to be a criminal."
"This place was nice until the likes of you came along. Pay up."
"Want to get rich, huh? You picked the wrong profession. Law enforcement's where the gold is. Your gold."
"What audacity! What utter gall! I'll have no more it. Just pay your fine and be gone!"
"It's not that I'm above bribery ... it's that I don't like you. Pay the bounty or else."
"Crime only pays if I get a cut, s'wit. Remember that for next time."
"I really hope this goes easily. I'd prefer not to kill you today. So, what will it be? Easy or hard?"
"Can we hurry this up? I have a prior appointment and he hates it when I'm late."
"And once again a varlet has succumbed to the long arm of justice. Will you pay your fine?"
"Your crimes have caught up with you. It is time to pay your bounty."
"Criminals always prefer to deal with me. Probably because I'm pleasant to look at. Now pay up."
"There are laws and you have broken them. Now you must pay."
"You simpleminded reprobate! You must make recompense for your despicable crimes!"

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"You paid? Surprising."
"Hmm. Pleasure doing business."
"This money's filthy!"
"I doubt you try anything like this again."
"Suppose you're free to go now."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"Do not cross me again, varlet."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"Another runner! What did I expect?"
"I love a good chase!"
"Criminals are all cowards!"
"I will end you!"
"You defy the law for the last time!"
"I was hoping you would do that."
"You're not going anywhere!"
"I doubt you'll defeat me!"
"I suppose you're a criminal after all."
"Brave! Stupid! But brave!"
"You'll motivate me to violence, cur!"
"And now the inevitable will begin!"
"If you get blood on my boots, I'll kill you twice!"
"Have at thee, villain!"
"You should have submitted!"

Male Dunmer[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"Stop right there, s'wit!"
"Halt fetcher!"
"Stop right there, scum!"
"Not another step!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"By Almsivi, I'll have your bounty or I'll have your hide."
"One day I'll meet an outlaw who pays a bounty without complaint. Will this be the day?"
"Bah! All criminals are craven cowards and you're no different! Will you pay in gold or blood?"
"Another vagrant disgracing my streets. Typical. Just pay the bounty and move along."
"You have your crimes and I have my orders. Now pay up! I have more to do than just deal with you."
"I am in an ill temper, so just pay your bounty and be on your way."
"Criminals! So smart! Think they can get away with anything. Well, I'm here to tell you different."
"A dark day indeed when I have to deal with the likes of you. Pay your bounty and leave me be."
"Please, no explanations. I don't care why you did what you did. I just need you to pay your bounty."
"You aren't clever! The law found you and demands its due. Pay your fine or face the consequences."
"You owe a bounty. Don't even think of running. My knees aren't what they used to be."
"Almsivi knows your crimes…as do I. Pay up, s'wit."
"There's a bounty on your head and I'll see it paid in full. Might even bring a smile to my face."
"Wait, you're not who I…. No matter, turns out there's a bounty on your head as well. Pay up, then."
"I understand the appeal of a life of crime. So many good memories. But I learned to pay my bounty. Have you?"
"Please! Don't attack. I'm just doing my job. Can you give me your bounty and let this go?"
"This must be some dark plane of Oblivion where I must endlessly confront filth. Your bounty, please."
"Yet another useless s'wit of a criminal to waste my time. Give me the bounty and go."
"If it was up to me, I'd just have criminal filth like you killed on sight. It'd be less of a hassle."
"I dare you––just give me an excuse and I'll bash your ugly teeth into the back of your head."
"I don't know if I can do this guard job. My heart is pounding! I don't like confronting people."
"The bounty is an opportunity for you to set yourself right with me and with the gods."
"Just my luck, bumping into the likes of you. Know what this means? Just more dung to deal with."
"Anyone who says crime doesn't pay hasn't me in action. My deals with criminals always turn a profit!"
"Another fetcher? How many of you are there? Let's get it over with. Hand over your bounty."
"I hope you realize that I have better things to do. Please. Let's make this fast and easy."
"Oh, Dumac take you! I can't tell you how this grates on my patience. Pay your bounty and begone!"
"If I had a gold piece for every lowlife I had to deal with, I'd be rich. I'll settle for the bounty."
"Maybe your small mind can understand if I speak slowly ... I'm here to collect your bounty."
"It's a travesty that criminals walk free instead of being kept as slaves. Ah, the old days. Now, your bounty?"
"You probably don't even have the gold, but I have to give you a chance to pay your bounty."
"Oh! Look what crawled up from the dung-heap—a pathetic criminal. I hope you can pay your bounty."
"You're just another lowlife fetcher who broke the law and got caught. Now you have to pay."
"Scum like you belongs on the bottom of my boot. Irks me just to look at you. Just pay and go."
"I think we should execute criminals on sight, but my captain won't allow it. He wants your bounty."
"I'm here to collect the bounty. For that unfortunate incident? Look, don't make me spell it out."
"This can't be right. You could never do that to a live guar. Going to strike that as an error…now, for the rest of your bounty."
"Freedom can be bought, but forgiveness must be earned, criminal."
"There's a bounty on your head and I'll see it paid in full. Might even bring a smile to my face."
"If my superiors weren't watching, we could deal with this in a different fashion. However…"
"You need to clear your record and I need to pay my rent, so turn over your bounty, if you please."
"The more you pay, the less I remember. See how this works?"
"This is your lucky day! Pay me your bounty and I'll make sure no one bothers you again."
"The crime you commit is your bondage. Pay the bounty and be free."
"The gods will have justice for your crimes, one way or the other."
"My orders are to collect your bounty. What happens after I take your gold is none of your concern."
"I can give you back your good name and clear your record…for a price."
"Your deeds are an affront to the gods! Pay the bounty or die."
"Stop in the name of the law! What? We have to say that. It's in the regulations."
"I have no choice but to follow orders. You? I have no idea why you decided to enter a life of crime."
"This notice says you owe a bounty for committing a crime. Pay up so I don't have to keep reading."
"By Almsivi, I'll have your bounty or I'll have your hide."
"Reflect on your actions. See how they burn at your soul. It is not the gold that costs."
"You could just hand over your bounty. No need to whine about it. That's how we'll do it, yes?"
"The Tribunal frowns on those who disrupt order. Pay the fine."
"I'm sure you've done this before so you know the drill. Pay your bounty and you're free to go."
"Look, I'm only asking because my captain will kill me if I don't. Can I collect your bounty please?"

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"Begone from my sight."
"Another happy customer. Huzzah."
"Please, just obey the law for now on."
"Next time, commit your crimes elsewhere."
"I was hoping for more, but this will do."
"Almsivi be praised."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"May the fear of the gods help you walk the right path."
"Go. But remember I'll be watching you, s'wit."
"Alright, I'll let you go. Just this once."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"Is this how you choose to die?"
"You brought this on your own head!"
"Did you not notice my foul mood?"
"Why do they always want to fight me?"
"I gave you a chance!"
"Why couldn't you take the deal?"
"Please don't hurt me!"
"You people make me mad!"
"Why do I always get the violent ones?"
"No, please! I want my mother!"
"Why do criminals never trust me?"
"You're hardly worth the effort."
"This should be easy!"
"I knew I should of brought my other weapon."
"Gods have mercy on this fool!"
"Why do I always get the eager ones!"


Female Nord[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"Go no further, milk-drinker!"
"Halt right there!"
"Freeze, scum!"
"Hold it right there!"
"I bid you surrender!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"Surrender and pay, scum!"
"Your compensation, now!"
"This ends now, outlaw!"
"Pay or suffer, villain!"
"You bounty, forthwith!"
"Honor your debt, milk-drinking scum!"
"Pay or die, criminal!"
"Don't be a milk-drinking horker! Pay your bounty and set your mind at ease."
"The use of force is only required if you resist. If you pay your bounty, you can avoid it."
"If your crimes were more drastic, I'd be required to attack on sight. Instead, you may simply pay."
"There is no clemency for criminals here. You must pay your bounty, or I will use force."
"There are laws here, and it's my duty to enforce them. You have a bounty and I must collect it."
"You have been accused of a crime and I am authorized to demand you pay bounty."
"You have a criminal record. I can help with that! I'll gladly accept payment to make this go away."
"Good day! You're not like those usual horkers I deal with. You look like you have plenty of gold."
"Whatever offense you may have committed, they have been recorded, and the bounty is due."
"This isn't about innocence or guilt. You have a bounty for crimes committed and I must collect it."
"Gods-cursed criminal. Pay the bounty and get out of here."
"You don't have to confess anything. You just have to pay the gold and your name is cleared."
"No one can evade the guards forever. Just pay your bounty and then it's no longer a problem."
"A life of crime has its ups and downs. You had to know your luck would run dry. Now you pay your bounty."
"Some guards might try to squeeze extra gold out of you, but all I ask is that you pay what you owe."
"What's the smell? Oh yeah, a stinking criminal. Pay the bounty. And take a bath."
"I like you, thief. Give me your gold and you'll be free and clear."
"I'd prefer to handle this all civil like, but I can get furious if you like that sort of thing."
"The suggested action is that you pay the fee for your bounty."
"You owe a bounty for your crimes, and I'll accept not a coin less."
"It was a golden opportunity. Who hasn't been tempted, am I right? Just pay me and go."
"We have a common purpose, friend. You want the law to leave alone and I want your gold."
"Pay your bounty, friend, and perhaps we can work something out later."
"I understand completely. Slip a little extra into your payment and I'll forget I ever saw you."
"A little corruption never hurt anyone, but I still need to collect your bounty."
"Will you pay your bounty, must I introduce your face to the ground?"
"Next time you break the law, make sure I'm not watching. Not that you're hard on the eyes."
"It's tough to ignore the law when it looks this good. Now…bounty. Fork it over."
"Caught in the act! I know the feeling. Sorry to rain on the parade, but you've got a bounty to pay."
"My back hurts and my eyes are tired, but justice will be served."
"Hi! I'm here for your bounty. Come on, pay up! You certainly look like you can afford it."
"In the eyes of the law, you're a criminal, but you can pay your bounty to be a citizen again."
"Let's not overcomplicate this. You committed a crime and got caught. Pay your bounty and you can go."
"You're the one who decided to break the law, so you're the one who has to pay the fine."
"Don't make me get rough with you, villain. Really. Just don't."
"Come, wrongdoer, pay up and be quick about it."
"Crime never pays, sweetheart. That's why I got into law enforcement. Now, let's talk about bounties, shall we?"
"Pay the bounty and get out of my way."
"If you make me run any more, I will beat you. Now, pay your fine, villain."
"I've had a hard day, Just pay your bounty and let's be done with this business."
"Repent and let me get back to more important work."
"There's no reason for this to get ugly, milk-drinker."

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"The felon has made restitution."
"The penalty has been paid."
"Go and break no laws, you're free."
"Criminal? I see no criminal here."
"The law is satisfied."
"My tired feet thank you for cooperating."
"I appreciate you taking it so well."
"All right, I'll be on my way then."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"Waste of my time. Get out of here."
"An honest mistake. I make them all the time. Go on."
"I guess I can bend the rules, but just this one time."
"See? Easy. Now keep that nose clean."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"That's your last mistake!"
"Die rogue!"
"You want to fight? Very well!"
"I am now authorized to attack!"
"Duty demands that I use force!"
"The horker wants to fight? Gladly!"
"So be it."
"Guess I'll have to kill you now."
"I can't let you walk away!"
"Ugly and dumb, eh?"
"Then we'll work it out in battle!"
"Violence? I can do violence!"
"Such a waste!"
"It's your funeral, sweetroll!"
"Don't make me chase you down, felon!"
"Don't make me beat you, thief!"

Male Nord[edit]

If alerted, they'll call for you to stop where you are.

"You, stop at once!"
"Cease and desist!"
"Stop! You owe a bounty!"
"One more step and I'll cut you down!"

They'll accost you when they catch up to you.

"Where have you been hiding all my life? If we clear your name, maybe we can talk of other things."
"I love rabbit meatballs! Do you love rabbit meatballs? Pay your fine and we may one day eat together."
"A rendezvous? If you insist! But let's get your bounty handled first, shall we?"
"I've come to ask ... I mean, demand your bounty. Yeah, demand. So pay up ... please?"
"Where have you been hiding all my life? If we clear your name, maybe we can talk of other things."
"No one as attractive as you could be a criminal! Let me help you clear your record, all right?"
"I know, I'm irresistible. I hear that all the time. Let's keep this professional and settle your account."
"Has anyone said you have a fabulous jaw? After you pay your fine, I'll tell you more."
"I'd pay the bounty for you if I could, but such favors are frowned upon by my superiors."
"Well, look at you! I'm sure we can work something out so you can put this business behind you."
"All right, lawbreaker, time to pay for your crimes. You are going to pay, right?"
"Great news! You get to pay your debt to society in gold! Could be worse, right?"
"The bad news is that you have to pay a fine. The good news is I'm going to get a promotion!"
"I remember the old days when we would just pound your head in after a crime. This is much easier!"
"I've got orders to collect your bounty…. Very strict orders. Don't blame me, all right?"
"I ... I need you to pay your bounty. If you refuse someone will probably chase you. Just fair warning."
"No need for concern. Pay the bounty and your name will be cleared."
"This doesn't have to be difficult. Pay the bounty and I'm on my way."
"The evidence against you is overwhelming, but there's a light at the end of the pass."
"Drunk? Of course I'm drunk! What of it? Give more lip and I'll double your fine!"
"Nothing to be ashamed of. We all get caught, eventually."
"I have a thought. Pay your bounty and I won't pull your arms from their sockets."
"What happens next is up to you. If you pay your fine, this all goes away. I prefer the other option."
"The law is reasonable, but you continue to snub your nose at it. Now you must pay."
"Give me some gold and I'll let you off the hook, no questions asked."
"You know what would make my foul mood even worse? If you decide not to pay your bounty!"
"Do I look like I want to talk to you? I just want to collect your bounty and move along."
"My mood is like a winter's storm, cold and unpredictable! Care to try your luck or will you pay up?"
"I almost never drink on duty, but I'm having a bad day. Don't ask. Just pay your bounty and go away."
"No need to worry. Just pay your fine and be on your way."
"You action screams guilt. I see no contrition. That pains me, it really does."
"It's nothing to be proud of, but it isn't the end of the world, either. Just pay your bounty."
"You lawbreakers give me indigestion! Pay your bounty before I lose my breakfast all over you."
"I may be ineb … intox … I may be drunk, but I am no criminal. I don't think. Now pay up!"
"Look, I know you have better things to do, but can you just pay bounty? Please?"
"I've come to ask ... I mean, demand your bounty. Yeah, demand. So pay up ... please?"
"Can you just help me out and pay your bounty? If I lose another one I'm out of a job!"
"You have a bounty to pay. Are you listening? Uh, I'll try to speak up."
"You've broken the law. Now it's time to…wait, what time is it? Time to pay, that's it!"
"Don't tell me your story. I don't want to hear it. I just want to collect your bounty."
"Let's see. So that's what you did, huh? Why am I not surprised? Just pay your bounty and you can go."
"You need to pay your bounty. There really isn't any other option."
"Now listen, you milk-drinking miscreant! You'll pay your bounty in gold or in blood!"
"Don't give me a reason to hurt you. Just pay your bounty and be on your way."
"I've dealt with hundreds of criminals. I know how to handle your kind. So pay me and go."
"I don't know what you did and I don't care. If you pay your bounty, we can forget all about this."
"Don't be a horker. Just pay your bounty and be done with it."
"Great news! You get to pay your debt to society in gold! Could be worse, right?"

If you pay your bounty, they'll be satisfied and let you go. The result is the same if you ask for clemency.

[Pay] Here's <payable bounty amount> gold and everything I've stolen. Clear my bounty.
"I'll see you again, my little snowball."
"You did good, settling your affairs."
"Great! Thank you. Seriously ... thank you."
"I expect we'll see each other again."
"Excellent! It's been a pleasure."
[Clemency] I have powerful friends. My bounty has already been covered.
"I knew you weren't a criminal. You're so much attractive."
"Go on little snowball, but I'll dream of you this night."

If you flee, the guard will utter an ambient line of dialogue before giving chase.

[Flee in <30> sec] I won't pay the bounty.
"I didn't want it to come to this!"
"Wait! We can still work this out!"
"You ruined such a nice time!"
"Oh well. Can't win them all!"
"We're fighting? Well, all right!"
"Oh dear. Stop!"
"Even I have limits!"
"All right, you'll pay in blood!"
"I'm not drunk enough for this!"
"This doesn't improve my mood!"
"You've angered the mammoth, troll-bait!"
"I fight best when I'm drunk!"
"No one ever wants to pay!"
"Didn't want to kill you, but oh well!"
"Ah well. Can't win them all!"
