Daily Discussions

Are you looking for something?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Player, have you seen my nephew Donald?

→  I was just talking to him.
Scrooge McDuck.png

Ah! Then he must be close by. Good. I need his help with something.

→  I saw him a while ago.
Scrooge McDuck.png

If you see him again, let him know I need his help with something.

→  Who?
Scrooge McDuck.png You haven't met? Oh, I thought you had.
Scrooge McDuck.png He's a keen lad. Useful in a pinch. Partial to wearing his sailor's uniform.
Scrooge McDuck.png

[Response to previous question]

→  Could I help you instead?
Scrooge McDuck.png That's kind of you, but I need Donald for this. He knows just how I like the stock inventoried.
Scrooge McDuck.png And it's high time we did a little uncle-nephew bonding.
→  What do you need?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Oh, it's nothing urgent. Nothing Valley-shaking. I was just rather looking forward to some uncle-nephew bonding.

→  Why Donald?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Well, he knows just how I like the stock inventoried. And we have some catching up to do.

How's it going?
Scrooge McDuck.png

I've got another piece of advice for ya.

Scrooge McDuck.png

When it comes to investments, you've got to diversify your portfolio.

→  What does that mean?
Scrooge McDuck.png

It means don't put all your Star Coins in one basket.

→  Like... invest in lots of different kinds of stuff?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Ay, you've got the right idea.

Scrooge McDuck.png

There are lots of ways to make money in Dreamlight Valley. A little bit of fishing here, a little bit of mining there...

Scrooge McDuck.png

But the best investment is real estate. Keep clearing away Night Thorns and opening up more of Dreamlight Valley.

Scrooge McDuck.png

And always be ready to go on an adventure to the far side of the Village. There are lots of precious gems you cannae find if you stick to the Meadow!

Got any business tips?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Looking for a bit of advice about managing your Star Coins?

→  Please! A penny for your thoughts!
Scrooge McDuck.png My thoughts are worth a lot more than a penny, you know.
Scrooge McDuck.png But we all need to start somewhere. A penny's better than nothing.
→  I could always use a little advice.
Scrooge McDuck.png That's the right attitude!
Scrooge McDuck.png Don't ever go discounting the value of a little advice... or a little bit of money.
→   I probably already know what you're about to tell me...
Scrooge McDuck.png

Hey! You can never go wrong listening to some honest advice.

  • sigh* Okay, okay, fine. What's your advice?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Listen up. Who knows? Maybe you'll even find a bit of wisdom in it.

Scrooge McDuck.png

And a little bit of wisdom's all you really need to strike it rich.

Scrooge McDuck.png

In fact, that's just what my advice to ya is all about.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Managing your money takes nothing more than shrewd investment. Start with something little and turn it into a lot.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Something little like... a seed!

Scrooge McDuck.png

In this Valley, crops are... well, a cash crop.


What sorts of plants should I grow?

Scrooge McDuck.png

I've got just one word for you. Just one word.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Are ya listenin'?

Scrooge McDuck.png




Scrooge McDuck.png

There's a great future in Okra.

Something on your mind?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Y'know, Player, there's one secret to really standing out among your competitors. It's what sets my shop apart.

→  Variety?
Scrooge McDuck.png

That's exactly right. You're getting to have quite an instinct for business yourself, Player.

→  High-quality products?
Scrooge McDuck.png

No. Well, yes. My products are all high quality. But it's more than that.

→   Ridiculously high prices?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Huh?! For products as high quality as the ones I offer, my prices are a bargain.


Okay, okay, sorry. So if it's not that, what's your secret?

Scrooge McDuck.png

My secret is variety.

Scrooge McDuck.png

I always keep my customers guessing with many different fine products. You never know what you're going to get when you step into Scrooge McDuck's Store.

Scrooge McDuck.png

You oughta be sure to visit every day so you don't miss anything.

The Village is perfect, don't you think?
Scrooge McDuck.png

You know what this Village needs? A money bin so I can go for a swim.

→  We can't afford that.
Scrooge McDuck.png Not yet, perhaps. But a few savvy business decisions and a daring adventure or two, and you'll see.
Scrooge McDuck.png It's how I've made one fortune, and how I'll make another!
→  You can't swim in money.
Scrooge McDuck.png Not with that attitude you can't!
Scrooge McDuck.png I've spent many a year perfecting diving and backstroking through gold.
→  You could swim in the ocean.
Scrooge McDuck.png And get salt in my feathers?!
Scrooge McDuck.png Who do you think I am?! The world's second-richest duck?
What are you up to today?
Scrooge McDuck.png

I've been reminiscing about my time in the Yukon near Mooseneck Glacier.

Scrooge McDuck.png

The valleys between those mountains... they were so... so...

→  ...pure and beautiful?
Scrooge McDuck.png

That it was, Player. That it was.

→  ...clean and untouched?
Scrooge McDuck.png

That it was, Player. That it was.

→  ...full of potential for profit?
Scrooge McDuck.png Aye, there were plenty of ways to turn a profit.
Scrooge McDuck.png But I appreciated them for more than just that.
Scrooge McDuck.png

No fancy meal has tasted half as fine as the beans I cooked on my own campfire under the Klondike stars.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Before stock options and crop futures and compound interest, my tools were my gold pan, my pick, and my shovel.

Scrooge McDuck.png

With those, I worked the icy creeks and frozen tundra...

Scrooge McDuck.png

...and earned every cent with my own two hands.

→  Sounds amazing!
Scrooge McDuck.png

Aye, that it was.

→  Sounds like a lot of work.
Scrooge McDuck.png

Aye, it was, but it was noble work.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Sometimes I think more than gold or assets in banks or properties around the world...

Scrooge McDuck.png

...I'm richest in memories.

What's your success story?
Scrooge McDuck.png

I'm Scrooge McDuck! I made my fortune being tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties.

→  How tough were the toughies?
Scrooge McDuck.png Oh, they were the toughest. Yukon miners and Beagle Boy bandits!
Scrooge McDuck.png But I out-hiked, out-swam, and out-explored them all!
→  How smart were the smarties?
Scrooge McDuck.png Oh, they were the smartest. Cunning foxes and ruthless entrepreneurs.
Scrooge McDuck.png But I outfoxed the foxes and out-ruthed the ruthless.
Scrooge McDuck.png Is "out-ruthed" a word? Well, if it is, I did it!
→  Never heard of you?
Scrooge McDuck.png No? Well then, can you show me to the rock you've been living under?
Scrooge McDuck.png I've made many a fortune exploring places remote and rarely traveled.
You must have a lot of stories to tell.
Scrooge McDuck.png

Have I ever told you about any of my great adventures, Player? Searching a Scottish castle? Hunting for gold in the Klondike?

→  What were you searching for in those castles?
Scrooge McDuck.png I was searching for a family treasure hidden in the McDuck family's ancestral castle in Scotland.
Scrooge McDuck.png The treasure had been lost for years, but I found it with an X-ray machine! There was also a meddling ghost, but Donald and I got the better of him!
→  Did you find a lot of gold in the Klondike?
Scrooge McDuck.png That I did! I found a golden rock the size of a goose egg. It was the start of my fortune!
Scrooge McDuck.png I used it to buy land in Duckburg. And the rest, as they say, is history.
→   Tell me something different.
Scrooge McDuck.png

Aye, I'll tell you the story of how I earned my first dime!

Scrooge McDuck.png

I was a young lad in Glasgow, earning my way shining shoes. My very first customer was a ditch digger with an inch of mud on his boots!

Scrooge McDuck.png

I scrubbed with all the strength in my small body and left his boots spotless.

Scrooge McDuck.png

But he paid me with an American dime, which was useless in Glasgow! The cheat!

Scrooge McDuck.png

I vowed then to always be honest in my dealings and earn my money square.

You're a businessman, right, Scrooge?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Aye. Specifically, I consider myself an adventure-capitalist. I made much of my fortune searching for treasure, and investing it wisely.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Do you have some questions about money? I'd be happy to answer 'em for you.

→  How did you get so rich?
Scrooge McDuck.png By being smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies! I'm not like some folks, born to riches.
Scrooge McDuck.png I was born to a poor family in Scotland and earned every dime I've got!
→  Why do you care so much about money?
Scrooge McDuck.png Aye, that's a fair question. And I'll answer it true. I was born to a poor family in Scotland. I know what it means to not have what you need.
Scrooge McDuck.png So, I know the real value of money.
→  How do I make as much money as you?
Scrooge McDuck.png

Well, you have to work hard and be clever and stubborn, too. And it doesn't hurt to be lucky. But most importantly, you have to treat folks fairly.

Scrooge McDuck.png

Not like some who got where they are by cheating, and taking advantage of folks. And the more money they have, the more they cheat.

→  How do we stop them?
Scrooge McDuck.png Ooh, that's a hard question. Money's a powerful thing. You've got to have rules about how money can be spent, and how workers can be treated.
Scrooge McDuck.png But those that get rich by cheating will spend to keep cheating. So you've always gotta keep your eyes open.
→  Why aren't you like that?
Scrooge McDuck.png Aye, well... I've done some things I'm not proud of. But I like to think I've learned my lesson.
Scrooge McDuck.png I suppose it's my family, and the good folks I've worked with. I wouldn't want to do anything to change how they see me.
→  Cheating sounds fun.
Scrooge McDuck.png

What?! Cheaters are nothing but no-good, spineless, rotten apples! Trust me: Nothing worthwhile ever comes from cheating.
