Timber Hearth
...That tree has got it coming.

Marl is a tree keeper for the village. They seem to hold a nasty grudge against the tallest tree in the village - having fallen off of it in their youth - and many of the village people work to prevent them from cutting it down.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Initial Conversation[edit | edit source]

  • "So it's launch day, huh? Hal's going to miss you.
    Speaking of launch day... I was thinking about it, and the platform those ships launch from is getting old. Isn't about time you built a new, less flammable one?
    That big tree in the village would be the perfect choice. I wouldn't mind helping out the space program. Just say the word!"
    • >The current launch pad is fine, thanks.
      • "Oh. Really? Dang.
        Well, maybe someone needs a new porch or something. A big one."
    • >Nice try. We all know you have it out for that tree.
      • "What? No, I just think it's in the way and someone ought to chop it down, you know? Specifically, me.
        ...Haha, you think this has to do with the time I fell out of it and broke my arm? That was when we were hatchlings! Who would hold a grudge for that long?"
    • >The launch pad is FLAMMABLE?!
      • "Ha! You didn't realize that?
        Don't worry, it's held up for all the launches so far. It'll definitely be fine for yours. Probably."

If talked about the tree[edit | edit source]

  • "...That tree has got it coming.
    If you swing by the moon, say hi to Esker for me."

After going to space[edit | edit source]

  • "What are you doing back? Did you forget your spacesuit or something?"
