Our scouts tell of a snow-covered forest inside a cave. The forest could provide substantial resources, especially lumber, but it needs to be cleared out first. One spot in particular is home to a group of annoying snootlings -- not a major threat, but en masse they could pose some risk. Take them all out.
Kill Hazelbrag Stone, Mayor of Mirkhold
The town of Mirkhold has lots of things we'd like -- food, shelter, water, the works. What it _doesn't_ have is empty space. Send a message to the mayor that we want the place for ourselves. The message will be killing him.
Complete the preservative kit
A lot of the Syggax are reptilian, and a lot of reptiles like raw meat. Not usually a problem, unless you want to store it. This continent is STUPID cold, but it's not enough. Our apothecary and galley have given me a list of things that should help. Go get them.
Kill 5 Norse Village tradecrafters
When I say 'we need security' I mean 'wipe out anyone nearby that's more likely a threat then a food source'. There is a Norse Village in particular, loaded with humans and therefore at risk to join the Feldspar. That is not 'security'. I have a list of names for you: Alton, Ashfor, Bettie, Felcar, Gevies, Gudruk, and Reswald. They take care of many of the food, beverages and services of the village. Their loss will weaken their resolve.
Get 50 iron sling bullets
A lot of our most dedicated warriors use specialized weapons, including custom war slingshots. Problem is, we came here by boat, and sling ammunition is heavy. We need a resupply, and that's your job. Fifty bullets made from iron will hold us for a few days.
Get dragonbone from the Old Copper Mine
The Syggax kobolds handle most of our arcane magic, and they claim their power derives from their draconic heritage. Naturally, I call bullshit. But that's what they _claim_ so whatever. The best way for them to attune to local sources would be samples of dragon blood -- such as, the marrow inside a bone. The older, the better, but I'm not sending you to your death. There's an Old Copper Mine, rumored to have dragons in it. Find a dead one.
Get a rune from the Norse Village
Our spellcasters are still trying to attune themselves to this world and its new magic. They keep saying that runes would be a useful key. There's a Norse Village, a human village, and the inhabitants are said to come from heritage that uses runes. Search the village, see if you can find one.
Hell's Dojo: ROUND ONE FIGHT!
A name like Hell's Dojo sounded promising. Turns out, it was just a bunch of humans in pajamas. Time to put them in their place. Your targets are anyone with a WHITE belt.
Get 100 basalt sling bullets
A lot of our most dedicated warriors use specialized weapons, including custom war slingshots. Problem is, we came here by boat, and sling ammunition is heavy. We need a resupply, and that's your job. One hundred bullets made from basalt will set our guards and hunters up for a few days.
Get 100 iron sling bullets
A lot of our most dedicated warriors use specialized weapons, including custom war slingshots. Problem is, we came here by boat, and sling ammunition is heavy. We need a resupply, and that's your job. One hundred bullets made from iron will set our guards and hunters up for a few days.
Get the Lost Relic from the Mirkhold Catacombs
We're still trying to get our religious spellcasters attuned to the demons and gods in this new land. Our research has told us of Azathoth, God of Horror, who sounds right up our alley. But, Azathoth priests aren't exactly holding up signs for us to find. Secrets are often buried with the dead. Check the catacombs under Mirkhold temple for a relic we can use.
Kill 3 Dwarf Guards in Moongate
Allowing the Feldspar to gather allies on this continent is unacceptable. There is a dwarf community here, behind a Moongate, and they have armed guards we cannot let the Feldspar acquire. Kill them.
Bring tribute to the demon racial shrine
A lot of the Syggax are working men, paid labourers and guards like anyone else. The higher-ups, however, tend to be the religious type. Well, sacreligious type. Fine. Demon worshippers. And they want to make good with the local demons. We've got some skulls to offer, but you'll get a few other things to make the tribute complete, including the blood of six of the locals.
Kill five Kathvael priests
Very little is a threat to a demon worshipper than someone who worships OTHER demons. Demons do not get along with each other very well at all, and less so when sharing devotees. There is a village nearby we heard is called Kathvael, and in and near that village are some priests we want dead. Make it happen.
Obtain polar bear furs from the Snow Peaked Mountain
This continent isn't what we're used to. In fact, the cold is just stupid freezing, and we hate it. What might help would be fur from the animals that resist the cold best...such as polar bears. See what you can scrape up where they live on the cliffs of the Snowy Peaked Mountain.
Kill Nin'zhal the Shaman of Aldors Village
Aldors Village might seem peaceful, but they have a lot of guards that could give us problems. They also have a powerful healer, one Nin'zhal, who would make these guards an even worse nuisance. He's not a problem yet, but it's a matter of time. Raid the village and kill him.
Kill five midlevel Hack monsters
There's a cavern on this continent, a big one, seemingly Hacked out of solid rock over the centuries, that's a potential source of supplies or even a new base. But, it's also loaded with monsters. We don't need the whole thing cleared, but the top two levels should let us form a foothold. Clear out some of the mid-level threats, but watch out. Death might be lurking behind the next corner.
Lead a large tamed animal to the Syggax camp
A lot of the Syggax are reptilian, and we're kind of picky how much our meat is cooked. A lot of us prefer raw, actually, but raw meat doesn't store well. The easiest solution? Keep it alive. There's a lot of us, however, so think big. Think bull size or larger.
Find the Amberley family history
The nearby inhabitants of Castle Amberley are likely to oppose us, which means the Feldspar can pick them up as allies quickly. They're too well fortified to assault, but we can find alternative methods. Perhaps a dark secret in their past will reveal a clue.
Pick 12 fresh bearberrys
We have mystics and herbalists ready to go, but they need materials to use for research. As everyone knows, fresher is better, and that means we need what's in season. That seems to be bearberry for now, 12 will be a good start. Or, if you can find buttercup instead, bring those.
Get a quality protection potion
We're still working on the local plans, animals, and metals needed for alchemy. While that's going on, however, we're down the ability to brew potions. Protection is the most needed in the short term, but we need the good stuff to have any faith in it. Blue colour or better, and not watered down.
Kill 4 Skeep Prisoners on their Walk
Shadowkeep has a vast prison, filled with our kinds of people. How do you get on the good side of prisoners? By making a show of fource. Find some prisoners in public view, say, some going for a walk, and shank them. That should earn us some goodwill from the others.
Get the Prisoner Manifest from Shadowkeep Prison
You won't have to go far for this one. We're looking for a list of names of inmates in Shadowkeep Prison. From that, hopefully we can find a few people that will aid our cause, either for freedom, for gold, or revenge. Bribe, steal, or kill if you need to.
Get the spellbook from the Hack chest
These lands contain all sorts of magic that is new to us. We've heard that random chests can contain spellbooks, capable of teaching us about local magic quickly. It's hard to get more random than the Hack area. Find an apppropriate spellbook for us.
Get six articles of leather clothing
A lot of the Syggax are reptilian, with thicker skin than most mammals. Most of us are hard workers and need durable clothing. Since we're talking about clothing for _under_ armour, colour doesn't matter, but they need to be made from leather to hold up to the abuse they'll suffer.
Kill five Mirkhold guards
We want to send a message to the nearby village of Mirkhold. The message is 'die'. We know, left alone, they'll be bought by the Feldspar, and we'd rather have that problem behind us than in front of us. Anyone in town with a weapon dies.
Kill the Liches in the Tower of Horn-Durath
We're trying to get some research done into the local magical effects, but there always seems to be obstacles. In particular, there's a cauldron our scouts have eyes on, but a cadre of liches is always there. Take them out so our research team can claim the prize.
Complete the duergar priest kit
We found allies with the local duergar, eager to take up arms against the Feldspar dwarves. They're willing to lend relgious aid, something we despeately require, but it's our job to get them the supplies they need for their dark rituals. I'm making that your problem.
Find a Hill Giant Totem
The Syggax work with giantkin, but the local frost giants are being obstinate. The hill giants, that's another matter. But to get in their big, smelly stupid graces, we're going to need a starting point. Head to their lair, see if you can find a totem or the like that acts as a kind of family giant emblem.
Find the Convict's List in the Shadowkeep Prison Pit
Our attempts to reach out to the violent inmates of Shadowkeep Prison are coming along nicely. We did hear about one in particular whose name has a lot of weight. Sadly, he's dead. But he may have some information we can use hidden in where the guards would never search. See what you can find.
Get arcane research from the Orcs of Horsehead Mountain
A pair of our scouts in the Horsehead Mountain range brought back tales of horned, mutant orcs -- twisted by magic and made tougher and stronger. Orcs can crawl off and die for all we care, but the augmentation magic could be highly useful. Find some information we can use.
Retrieve a Draconian Emblem from Snow Devils
We in the Syggax are no strangers to dragons, or even draconians, but we're not used to working with them in general and here in particular. We're willing to overlook minor things like 'who is descended from dragon blood and who is not' and they, typically, aren't. If we want to work with them, we're going to need a kind of invitation. Head for the draconians on the wall near the Snow Devils, find some kind of sigil or symbol we can use, and bring it back.
Pick 60 fresh strawberrys
We have mystics and herbalists ready to go, but they need materials to use for research. As everyone knows, fresher is better, and that means we need what's in season. But BOY are they going through the damn things quickly! And they won't shut up about it! 'Bla bla bla need more fresh herbs' over and over! Just drown them in strawberry, 60 or whatever. Or, if you can find mugwort instead, bring those.
Mix up experimental fertilizer
At the (urgh) _repeated_ requests of our herbalists, we brought some seeds with us from our homeland. Big surprise, tropical plants don't grow very well in this permafrost-soaked ground. But rather than give up like any sensible creature, they're suggesting some new fertilizer they think will help. Either it will and we get plants they can use, or it won't and they'll shut up about it. Either way, I win.
Bring a large tamed reptile to the Syggax camp
We're not going to get around this frozen hellscape without mounts and beasts of burden. We have trainers, but they're far more experienced with the animals of our lands, and they're almost all reptiles. Bring us something we can work with.
Get twelve cups of butter
After arriving on this continent, we discovered an absolutely outstanding new grease for leather and steel. It's called 'butter', and near as I can tell you get it from throttling the organs of large hairy beasts. Why mammals waste such a valuable resource by smearing it on bread is beyond me. Get a bunch of the stuff and bring it here.
Get Lear Rotth's transformation notes
Our demonologists have heard of one Lear Rotth. Apparently, he was once human, but turned himself into a more demonic form. Obviously, such a transformation interests us greatly. We need info on how such a thing takes place. We don't know where such information might be stored, but one would assume Lear Rotth would keep it close by and guarded.
Protect the squerga fish eggs
There's a special kind of fish, native to our homeland but not here, whose oil has nutrition and flavouring that the reptilian Syggax prefer. We stocked a lake, far to the south on the path to the Lighthouse, that seemed to have plenty of fresh water. And that's going great. So great, they're spawning. But, some of the local wildlife really seems to like squerga fish eggs. Find an egg site, and see to it they hatch safely.
Kill three draconians in Snow Devils
Not everyone gets it, but lizardmen and draconians aren't even close to the same thing. Draconians tend to put their purpose in their race, rather than a more tangible motivation like money or power. We offered some of the locals a place in our ranks. They refused. Express our dissatisfaction in their priorities until the screaming stops. You'll find them on the wall of the Citadel near the Snow Devils.
