Ignored By Salamander
We encountered a salamander in Ryker's house. It didn't seem to take a liking to us.
Salamander Unknown Lang
We tried to speak with the salamander in Ryker's house, but spoke in a strange tongue that we were not familiar with.
We spoke with the salamander in Ryker's house. It seems that it can only speak in a rare lizard dialect thanks to its deceased former owner, a lizard.
Knows Burning Words
The salamander told us the words that will unlock a burning chest that once belonged to its former master.

We have found a magically-locked chest that demands a password.
We learned that the late former master of the Salamander had a magical chest that could only be unlocked by uttering a phrase from an ancient lizard dialect.
We managed to open the chest.
