Journal detail hr1 07.png NPCs Involved

  • Linette wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Miners' Guild.
  • You have been referred to Adalberta, the master of the Miners' Guild. Meet her at the bar.
  • Adalberta warmly welcomes you to the guild, and presents you with your very own─very old─pickaxe. Take up the tool of your new trade, and speak with the guildmaster again to be issued your first task.

Well met, adventurer. Adalberta's my name, and I'm the master of this guild.

I take it you wish to become a miner. Well, our doors are open to all who aren't afraid to work hard and get dirty.

Thanks to recent advances in refining techniques, it's now possible to smelt even low-purity ores. I mention this because it's allowed us to reopen a number of mines which were long thought exhausted, prompting trade to flourish.

Truth be told, with business as it is at the moment, we can't take on enough new miners. And few folk make better miners than adventurers, you being a hardy lot.

What's more, you're well traveled, which serves to expand the guild's sphere of activity. Oh, but I'm not suggesting you join solely for our benefit.

For your part, you'll acquire skills that will prove to your profit─a mutually beneficial arrangement, I trust you'll agree. So what say you? You will join us, yes?
Ready to work hard and get dirty?

Then I bid you welcome to the Miners' Guild! May your toils never go unrewarded!

Now then, here's a pickaxe to get you started. It's not the newest, but it should serve a novice well enough.

Go on and take it up─see how it feels in your hands.

Speak to me again when you're ready, and I'll assign you a little task to help you get into the swing of things.
Quest Completed
This is...unexpected. You have so much to gain and nothing to lose. Won't you reconsider?
Edit Way of the Miner's Dialogue

Talk to Adalberta at the Miner's Guild bar. Then equip the Weathered Pickaxe that she gives you. Talk to her again to complete the quest.
