||I'm afraid you're no longer welcome here. If you come back, we have orders to shoot.
||Yes, what can I do for you on this beautiful day?
||Have you changed your mind, Outsider? Do you want to speak with Tree Father Birch?
||Welcome back, my good friend!
||Tree Father Birch said you may have a gift for me?
||I helped to create the garb that you see all Treeminders wear. It's said that the cloth has a part of the Great One's spirit woven into the fibers.
||I present this to you as thanks. Wear this with pride but tell no one where it came from or Oasis may face as yet a greater peril.
||Yes, I'd like to speak to Tree Father Birch.
||I was hoping you'd say that. Please, proceed inside.
||No, maybe some other time.
||Oh! Well, let me know if you change your mind.
||I don't suppose there's more you can tell me about Oasis?
||Sorry, I believe that duty lay with Tree Father Birch.
||What's your opinion of Tree Father Birch and Leaf Mother Laurel?
||I think this place would be lost if it weren't for them.
||There's no telling what fate may have befallen the Great One if someone like the godless Raiders had gotten here first.
||What will you do now?
||Whatever the Tree Father or Leaf Mother would have me do, I'm still theirs to obey.
||Tell me about your "god."
||He is the Great One. The Tree Father of Tree Fathers. There is no greater being in the world than He.
||I've dedicated my life to protecting this place from the outside world and I will never fail in that duty.
||So, how did you end up here?
||I was brought here by His will. I heard his calling, and I followed.
||I believe only a few are worthy enough to find this place, and I'm honored to be among them.
||That's why I dread the day Oasis overgrows its boundaries.
|Remind me again how you found Oasis.
||I was brought here by His will. I heard his calling, and I followed. Isn't it wonderful?
||Yes, it would be dangerous letting the Wasteland know where Oasis is located.
||You make me smile, Outsider. It's people like you who give me hope that everyone out there isn't lost.
||I don't see that it matters much. Oasis is off the beaten path as it is.
||I suppose so, but you found it. How many others will stumble across Oasis? Will they be friendly?
||I'm worried Outsider, I'm truly worried.
||Stop being so selfish! You people should share this place with everyone!
||And watch as He is prodded and picked apart by those who seek to exploit Him?
||I will never allow that! He must remain safe and we will be His guardians!
||What did you have to do to become a Treeminder?
||I had to accept the ideals of Tree Father Birch and cast away my dependence on technology.
