◊ Rusted copper amulet with a small raw Str/Stam quint
◊ Get good samples of bark from the Mother's Tree ~Reward~ Supposed treasure map
◊ Must be brought back fresh, full, and without scarring
An astute older man dressed in drab colors and tight robes leans over a pair of bowls with indeterminable mixtures. "This isn't an easy task so you better be well traveled. Either lacking superstitions or else wise in the cognitive section would be ideal," Tobias begins, gently wafting a bit of the fumes from his latest concoctions. His lips curled into a smile, though whether it was satisfaction of his brews or his next words cannot be said.
"I need some rare herbs and material for a particularly nasty business; don't want to worry you but if not treated soon there could be a break out. I need haste on this mission should you accept, and if you're not up for it begone and stop wasting my time!" he spoke, waving a hand rapidly as if to shoe you away. Still he hasn't looked up from his table, now scribbling something in a journal sitting nearby. "Roots, from the evergleam in bloom. Small plant, mostly stalk, of which produces a sticky residue along its fine greens that makes it shine gold in the sunlight. Careful though, the stuff can be detrimental to your health if it enters your body." There was a brief pause of consideration before he resumed his messy writing. "Though you'll likely still have time to bring it back to me should that happen; as long as you don't dawdle."
"They need to be full and long. I will need at least enough to fill this bowl here," he stated with a light slap to the nearest bowl on the table. "And uh... if you can handle it," Tobias started in a distinctly different tone as if he was questioning your courage, "A few strips of bark from the Mother's Tree herself if you would. No telling how bad this epidemic could get... This all depends on you. Don't care how you do it just as long as you're back here in a couple weeks."
Please post below if you are interested in taking this mission. Once enough people have shown interest, or time has gone by, the mission topic will be posted. If only one person has signed up an NPC played by The Maven will join the player.

Though accompanied by the sneaking suspicion that this 'outbreak' was probably of this old man's own fooling around, Rafik would nonetheless attempt to negotiate with the standoffish old man on the grounds of three things:
His experience in the requested criteria, easily demonstrating his herbal aptitude and obscure details regarding various far-removed locales
The undesirability of the job
The rustiness of the amulet and pathetic size of the quint

Maximillion, investigating a series of mysterious abductions in the night, is looking not only for some kind of supernatural cause, but also biological. He has had limited interaction with Evergleam in the past, and would like to experiment with it's use as a direct lighting source.
As he sees it, bringing back some Evergleam Root, does not mean bringing back all of the Evergleam Root he happens upon.
