Rollo in front of his house

Rollo is a Redguard dock worker who works for Gerrick, bringing up shipments from the harbor. He is usually found in his house, but walks over to the docks when the bell in the Bell Tower starts ringing. While indoors he sits on a chest and will talk to you, but outside he tells you to go away.

Lakene only gives you the Smuggler's Den password if you retrieve his wife's silver locket. He claims Rollo cheated at cards to win the locket. Demanding that Rollo hand it over does not work; it's inside the chest he sits on, so you must make him leave. The bell rings occasionally, prompting Rollo to head over to the docks. If the bell hasn't rung, you can trick Favis into ringing it by waving Prnell's flag on the Harbor Tower's upper platform.

Rollo will initially be neutral toward you and all of his dialogue topics will be available. Greeting him a second time inside will make him annoyed. If you choose the more aggressive response to any of his dialogue (such as "Watch Your Tongue") he will become annoyed, or if already annoyed he will hate you. Notably, "Password or Else" will make him hate you immediately. When he hates you, he will default to a hate response if you ask him any topic.

"Maybe I've heard of it. Yeah, I've seen some guys hanging around there, supposedly in the Restless League, but it's all talk.
"They never do anything. You can't get in there without a password, anyway, so you might as well forget about it."


(Unlocked by Lakene: "Give Me Password"; disappears when you learn the password)

"I know you've been in the Smuggler's Den, Rollo. Tell me the password and I'll leave you alone."
"You got the wrong guy, I don't know nothing about no password. I was just telling you what I'd heard."
Password or Else
"You're a bad liar. Tell me the password or else."

"Go outside. Look around. If you don't see it, open your eyes and try again. Now get lost!"


(Unlocked by Lakene: "Give Me Password" if you don't have the silver locket; disappears when you learn the password)

"Lakene tells me you have his wife's silver locket. Any chance I could get it back?"

(Unlocked by "Gerrick")

"Sheesh, you are as dumb as you look. The bell, in the Bell Tower, right outside."

Of Course
"Of course. How stupid of me."


(Unlocked by "Palace" if you have not talked to Kotaro)

"Kotaro? Who's that?"
"The Laborer's Guild guy, down in the harbor, that's who. Hires deadbeats like yourself for peanuts. You should look him up, look like you could use a job."
Big Mouth

"Eee-yawhn. Wake me up when you're done yapping, ok?"

Kotaro Job[edit]

(Unlocked by "Palace")

"Tell me about this N'Gasta."
"Didn't I tell you to buzz off? He's some sort of necromancer, lives outside of town in a big tower."


(Unlocked by "Kotaro Job")

"It's always a pleasure, Rollo"
"Don't let the door hit you on the way out."
