I am Erasmus
of the Order of Nald'thal
, and I am charged with studying the anatomy of this region’s fauna and the environs in which they dwell. For the dark art of our Order is death itself, and power over death can come only through knowledge of life. One day, I shall publish my findings in a single, comprehensive volume: The Many Breaths of Thanalan
. But there is much work to be done before that day. Aid me, sister. Bring me five bottles of marmot blood
, and perhaps I shall name you in a footnote. Marmots
are hardy creatures that thrive nigh everywhere. You will most certainly find them just outside the city in western Thanalan
, by way of the Gate of the Sultana
. Do take care. They can be feisty little critters when threatened.
The blood, have you brought it?
Yes, yes, this shall serve nicely. By virtue of your toil, I am one step further to publishing The Many Breaths of Thanalan
. Thank you. Take this as recompense. Go now, and may the Traders smile upon you.
