At every station, he will tell the Knight more about the surrounding areas, giving a lot of information about the past of the kingdom and its inhabitants.
I've grown stiff and tired over these many years and I've forgotten much, but the sound of the bell will always call me back.
These stagways stretch the depths of Hallownest. If you want to travel them, hail me from the platform. I will take you where you need to go.
Talking in Dirtmouth
This place was once full of travellers coming and going. It seems much quieter now.
Talking in Forgotten Crossroads
If he requests passage, I'll offer it gladly. My duty as a stag far outweighs any personal distaste.
Talking in Greenpath
My, this place much changed since I last saw it. The greenery grows so wild the station's like to be consumed by it.
Talking in Fungal Wastes, Queen's Station
You're quite the explorer to find this place.
Talking in City of Tears, City Storerooms
Not a lot was sent back the other way though.
Talking in City of Tears, King's Station
The King never rode the stagways himself, but I've heard he was a glorious bug to behold, bright and radiant in visage, so much so it hurt to look at him.
Talking in Deepnest, Distant Village
Talking in Resting Grounds
Perhaps the dead conduct their own rituals now?
Talking in Queen's Gardens
Even as overgrown as they've become, these gardens are still beautiful after all this time. I'm sure the Queen would be happy to know that.
Talking in Hidden Station, Palace Grounds
Until I heard the bell calling, I didn't even know the Stagways travelled so deep. You've discovered something quite astounding, little one!
No matter how old I grow, the world still keeps surprises like this stowed away...
Talking after opening 3 Stag Stations
As I visit more places I feel my memories returning to me, like the stagways of my mind are running once more.
Continue to open the stations and you'll have my deepest gratitude.
Talking after opening 6 Stag Stations
Somewhere amongst the lines lies the Stag Nest, the place where I was born and raised. I'd thought its location lost to my failing mind, but now I can almost remember the path.
If you keep opening stag stations and beckoning me through them, perhaps I'll again find that Nest. Ahh, I would like that very much!
Talking after opening all Stag Stations
Little one! I've found it! the Stag Nest, where I was born and raised.
I've yet to go there again. My duty binds me to travel only where I am called, but if you wished to see it yourself, I could take you there.
None may remain to welcome us, but the nest is still a sight to behold! Give me the word, and we will go there at once.
Talking in the Stag Nest
It was full of life, once. Stags coming and going, swapping stories of the places they'd been and the passengers they'd met.
For a long time now, I've considered myself the only one remaining. The last stag.
But being in the Nest again... there's something in the air. A smell, or a warmth, or a presence perhaps?
Could it be, other stags have made their way out into the wider world?
Being back in my old home... I feel the weight of my long life bearing down on me. I carry it proudly, though. Wherever I travel, the memories of my family and my kind come with me.
Yes, I will hold onto that hope. My kin, still alive, still out there, journeying beyond these lands.
But for me, I could never abandon the stagways. Not as long as passengers still need them.
I can tell you still have important work to do, don't you little one? I will be your companion as long as my old body still serves. Let us enjoy the old stagways of this kingdom together a little longer.
Talking while holding the Tram Pass
That pass you hold! Is it not for that ghastly machine, the tram? I hope you're not thinking of riding on that grotesque contraption.
The thought a mere machine could attempt what we stags do! Foolish...Very foolish.
Talking while holding the Delicate Flower
That flower you'e carrying... It looks quite beautiful, but also very delicate. I fear if you travel with me it will be ruined.
If you need to keep it intact, I'd suggest using your own legs to carry it to its destination.
- After visiting the Stag Nest, the Last Stag's name will be changed to "Old Stag" when talked to. This further confirms that there are more Stags in the world, as assumed by discovering the freshly hatched egg in the Stag Nest.
