    • Mortals, hear me! If you dare to conspire with that rotten, pusillanimous, conniving traitor Nymm and banish us for this utter piece of rubbish.....! Well, let me just say.... Master is good and merciful... He will forgive you and move on, as his benevolent flames burn forever in the high Heavens... But I shall *not* forgive you! Alack! Shame! Shame on you, and that liar and traitor Nymm! Never betray Master Grimm! It is wrong, and you know it, mortals! You have been warned... —Yours truly, Grimmkin Wisp ;)
