A Dwarf's Wish
Prequest: Grimal's Tribute to Talad
Required: 200 Tria, 2 Platinum Stock, 2 Bronze Stock, 10 Coal Lump.
→ Go to Grimal Bloodaxe
YOU: Hello again, Grimal.
Grimal: Nice to see you back, Huarwar!
Grimal: Now that my thanks to Talad have been said, surely he will be pleased.
Grimal: Now, I feel rested and I have achieved most of what I wanted in my lifetime.
- Grimal Bloodaxe grins and points at himself.
Grimal: However, this old dwarf feels like going on another adventure, a real adventure.
Grimal: I would like to venture into the Stone Labyrinths once more, would you help me prepare for that?
YOU: Yes, I think I can help you.
- Grimal Bloodaxe smirks.
Grimal: I'd have bet my beard that you'd help me.
Grimal: First of all, I'd like my old axe back, it has been in my family since we arrived in Yliakum.
- Grimal Bloodaxe looks proud.
Grimal: My ancestors were great heroes, their beards were heavy with battle tokens.
Grimal: I gave my axe to my son Raerul when I retired, as he would need it more than me, but now I will need it once more.
Grimal: Tell him to give you the axe, and bring it back fast.
- Grimal Bloodaxe grins.
Grimal: My hands can't wait to feel the grip of my good old axe again.
→ Go to Raerul Bloodaxe
YOU: Grimal sent me to get his old axe back.
- Raerul Bloodaxe looks at you and rubs his neck.
Raerul: By my beard, I almost forgot about that old thing.
Raerul: My father can't have the axe back, it is impossible.
Raerul: I'm really sorry, Klyros, but you'll have to tell him he can't have the axe back.
YOU: Why can't you give me the axe?
- Raerul Bloodaxe looks at you and strokes his beard.
Raerul: Well, I had the axe with me when I was on a mission to fight some ulbernauts, ferocious and hungry beasts they were.
Raerul: During the fight, the axe was knocked from my hand and struck a stone and it broke.
- Raerul Bloodaxe casts an ashamed look down at his feet.
Raerul: It was my ancestor's axe.
-His eyes seem to sparkle with ambition.-
Raerul: Ho!
Raerul: You can take the axe to Trasok and see whether he can repair it.
Raerul: I'd be mighty pleased, and I'm sure my father will be too.
Raerul: Here are the axe parts.
- Raerul Bloodaxe hands you two pieces of an axe.
Raerul: When the axe is repaired take it directly to my father; he needs it for good, I bet.
Raerul: Probably wants to get even more tokens.
→ Go to Trasok Starhammer
YOU: Can you try and fix these?
- Trasok Starhammer looks at the pieces and a smile crosses his face.
Trasok: This was a fine piece of dwarven work once, I know good work when I see it.
Trasok: A shame it is broken.
- Trasok Starhammer looks up from the axe pieces to you.
Trasok: I guess you want me to repair it?
YOU: Yes, I would like you to.
- Trasok Starhammer runs his blackened hands over the edges of the broken parts.
Trasok: This axe seems to be made of a special alloy, however it wasn't well maintained.
Trasok: So it got rusty and broke.
- Trasok Starhammer points at the broken parts and some of the stress fractures.
Trasok: I think I should be able to fix it, though it'll take me a while.
Trasok: I'll need some bronze and platinum in order to bind the parts together strongly enough for the axe to be worth using again.
-He plays with a few pieces of his beard as he thinks a little.-
Trasok: Two stocks of each should suffice.
Trasok: Bring them to me and I can start repairing the weapon, oh, and it'll be 200 tria for the labour, so bring the money along as well, will ya?
- Trasok Starhammer grins.
Trasok: You can pay me when I am done with the work, of course.
→ Give Trasok Starhammer 2 Platinum Stocks
YOU: Here are the platinum stocks.
- Trasok Starhammer takes the stocks and places them into the furnace while Talking to you.
Trasok: Alright, Let's give this a melt.
- Trasok Starhammer begins working on the Platinum then puts it down for a second.
Trasok: Pass over the Bronze Stock there, Klyros.
→ Give Trasok Starhammer 2 Bronze Stocks
YOU: Here are your bronze stocks.
- Trasok Starhammer takes the stocks from you and turns towards the tables, where the axe pieces are now placed.
Trasok: Fine, fine.
Trasok: I shall start fixing this right now, return to me later and ask if I am done.
→ Wait 5 minutes
YOU: Are you done yet?
- Trasok Starhammer is running the blade of the axe over the sharpening stone as you arrive.
-He stops as you approach him, looking at you.-
Trasok: Aye, I am done.
Trasok: I can proudly say I did a good job with the axe, it looks as good as new.
- Trasok Starhammer puts the axe on the counter.
Trasok: Next time, make sure you look after it better or I'll charge you a lot more to repair it.
Trasok: A good cleaning now and then will help prevent things like this happening.
Trasok: Now, that'll be 200 tria for my work, Sir.
→ Give Trasok Starhammer 200 Tria
YOU: Here is your payment.
Trasok: Pleasure doing business with you, Sir.
Trasok: If you ever have anything else to repair, return to me!
→ Go to Grimal Bloodaxe
YOU: Here, I have your axe.
- Grimal Bloodaxe takes the axe and swings it around.
Grimal: Hah, it's still in good shape!
-He frowns a little at it.-
Grimal: Almost as good as new...
Grimal: Huh, well I am glad my son takes care of his ancestors' heritage!
- Grimal Bloodaxe looks at you, obviously pleased.
Grimal: Thank you for bringing my axe back.
-As he holds the axe in his hands there is clearly a strong bond between them.-
Grimal: Ya know, this axe was the one that saved me in the Stone Labyrinth.
Grimal: I held it in my hands while praying to Talad for his protection.
Grimal: As those I was with were being dragged off into the shadows I felt a heat push through me.
Grimal: With faith Talad would guide me I lifted myself to my feet and fought off everything that came at me.
- Grimal Bloodaxe wipes a finger print off the blade.
Grimal: It's nice to hold it once more.
YOU: I'm glad I could help you.
Grimal: Now to the next part of my adventure.
- Grimal Bloodaxe grins.
Grimal: An old dwarf doesn't travel well without tria, you know?
Grimal: Food and drink are easy to get, like in the old days in the wilderness.
Grimal: I'll live off what the land gives me.
- Grimal Bloodaxe chuckles and strokes the side of his axe.
Grimal: Even if that means I have to cook an ulbernaut.
- Grimal Bloodaxe suddenly looks sad.
YOU: What's wrong?
- Grimal Bloodaxe sighs a little as he begins to speak.
Grimal: My first born son was a guard like me, and we often went out exploring together.
Grimal: We were sent after some thieves into the Stone Labyrinths, and they took us by surprise.
Grimal: My son was killed by them, but I managed to escape.
Grimal: I resigned as a guard that very day and I even stopped adventuring into the unknown.
- Grimal Bloodaxe inhales deeply and sighs.
Grimal: But life goes on, after all.
Grimal: Commander Strongwill still owes me my last salary, I never collected it.
Grimal: You should speak to Beniua Busuka about it, my friend.
→ Go to Beniua Busuka
YOU: Grimal sent me to collect his last salary payment.
- Beniua Busuka rubs her chin.
Beniua: Let me check the records, hold on a minute please.
- Beniua Busuka opens a book and turns a few pages until she stops.
-Her fingers run along the pages until they stop again and Beniua looks at you.-
Beniua: I see, he is still owed one monthly salary that he never came to claim.
Beniua: He just quit and left.
- Beniua Busuka shrugs.
Beniua: You can have it, if you just provide your signature as Grimal Bloodaxe's envoy here.
- Beniua Busuka shows you a form and points to an empty line.
Beniua: Would you sign this for me?
YOU: Yes, I'll sign it.
- Beniua Busuka hands you a small sack with several coins inside as you sign the form.
Beniua: Here you go, Klyros.
→ Go to Grimal Bloodaxe
YOU: Here is your missing pay.
- Grimal Bloodaxe eagerly pours the contents of the sack into his left palm and counts the coins.
Grimal: Well done, my friend!
Grimal: I see the Octarchy still cares for their former guards.
Grimal: However, there is one more thing I'd like you to do before I will venture into the Labyrinths.
-He stretches his back for a few moments.-
Grimal: I'd like to create a battle token in honour of all my ancestors, clan members, and fellow guards who died in battle, especially my eldest son.
Grimal: Please go and have two battle tokens made, one for me and one for my son Raerul.
- Grimal Bloodaxe's eyes sparkle with excitement.
Grimal: Here, take the badge of my clan.
Grimal: Either Harnquist or Trasok will be able to make a battle token from it, but I'd rather prefer Trasok doing it, as it's dwarves business.
Grimal: Be sure to bring Raerul his first, I'd like to know what he thinks of it when you bring me mine.
→ Go to Trasok Starhammer
YOU: Here.
- Trasok Starhammer glances at the badge in your hand.
Trasok: Good to see you again, Klyros.
Trasok: What is it this time?
YOU: I need you to craft some battle tokens.
Trasok: I see...
Trasok: A good battle token takes time to craft, though.
Trasok: I'm getting a bit low on coal, if you could fetch me ten lumps I'd gladly accept them as payment for the token.
Trasok: I should be finished when you return, how many tokens did you need?
YOU: Just two.
- Trasok Starhammer nods.
Trasok: I will start working on it right away, Klyros.
- Trasok Starhammer nods at you.
Trasok: Till you return with the coal, friend!
→ Give Trasok Starhammer 10 Coal Lump
YOU: Here, I have your coal.
- Trasok Starhammer takes the coal from you and shows you two beautifully crafted tokens.
Trasok: These are surely two of the finest battle tokens I've made so far, here, take them.
→ Go to Raerul Bloodaxe
YOU: This is for you.
- Raerul Bloodaxe looks at the battle token with curiosity.
Raerul: Who sent me this?
Raerul: This is my clan's badge on the battle token!
YOU: Your father sent it.
- Raerul Bloodaxe looks touched.
Raerul: By my beard, I feel honoured!
Raerul: Please tell my father that I am grateful for this.
Raerul: Does this mean you had the axe repaired?
YOU: Yes, in fact I did.
- Raerul Bloodaxe nods.
Raerul: Thank you again, I am grateful for your services to me and my father.
→ Go to Grimal Bloodaxe
- Grimal Bloodaxe is lying on his back as he looks up at you as you approach.
Grimal: Don't say anything...
Grimal: I know I know...
- Grimal Bloodaxe mutters something else which you can't quite make out.
YOU: Here is your token.
- Grimal Bloodaxe reaches up and eyes the token carefully.
Grimal: This is marvellous, my friend!
Grimal: A true masterpiece.
Grimal: Thank you for helping me once more, my friend...
Grimal: I was hoping to be ready for my adventure by now, and without your help I wouldn't have been able to manage it.
Grimal: But...
Grimal: It seems even with your help I'm my own biggest problem.
Grimal: I am indebted, my friend.
- Grimal Bloodaxe forces a painful smile as his old back continues to hurt.
Grimal: Please, keep my clan badge, from now on you shall be an honorary member of the proud Clan Bloodaxe!
- Grimal Bloodaxe grimaces at you as his back twinges.
Grimal: Have a good day.
Grimal: I shall prepare myself for the adventure well...
Grimal: Later.
Grimal: Oh and before I forget it, here's a part of my salary so you can buy yourself an ale in the tavern for all the work you did.
Grimal: May Talad's light shine upon your path.
Grimal: One more thing, did my son happen to say anything when you gave him his token?
YOU: He said he was grateful.
- Grimal Bloodaxe looks pleased, if not slightly uncomfortable.
Grimal: There is one more thing I have for you, a treasure of mine I found while adventuring in the Stone Labyrinth.
Grimal: I am not much of a mage so I don't need it any more now I have my axe back.
Grimal: Please accept it as a symbol of our friendship.
Grimal: We shall talk when I am back...from my adventure.
Grimal: But right now I'm going to just lie here and relax, maybe once I sort myself out i can consider going again, my friend.
- Grimal Bloodaxe tosses a glyph up at you.
