Timber Hearth

Rutile is the mayor of the village. They are also on a constant state of worry of the space program burning down the village. They also constantly work to keep Marl from cutting down the tallest tree in the crater.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Initial Conversation[edit | edit source]

  • You're actually blasting off in that thing, huh?
    • They really don't explode as often anymore.
      • All I know is between the space program and Mica's model rockets, things seem to burn to the ground around here more than they used to.
    • I'm told my odds of survival are statistically quite high.
      • Yeah, the space program's certainly come a long way. I should probably thank you for causing fewer flash fires than your predecessors.
        By the way, good luck with those retro rockets.

Followup Conversation[edit | edit source]

  • Hey, what can I do for you?
    • Marl is plotting to cut down that big tree. Again.
      • Sigh... I suppose it's my duty as mayor to stop them. Again.
        When Marl fell out of that tree and broke their arm, I suspect they might have also hit their head on the way down.
    • Are you going to watch the launch?
      • Of course!
        I'll be watching from a safe distance, obviously, and mostly to make sure nothing catches fire. But watching nonetheless.
    • Do you really worry that the space program will burn the village down?
      • Only constantly. You learn to live with it.
        You also learn to sleep with a bucket of water next to your bed, just in case.
    • I'm good.
      • Glad to hear it.
