With no quests done, this is what she says.
You say, 'Hail, Praetor Maestra'
Praetor Maestra says, 'Hello, Gidono. Beyond me here is the city called Gorowyn. From all the stories it is a rather spectacular creation, especially considering that it was made by the primative sarnak. You may know that those creatures have insisted in trying to destroy us. I could use your help finding ways to (defeat them).'

Praetor Maestra says, 'Gorowyn seems to be the seat of their power. We have been unsuccessful trying to get agents into the place. It might require some brute force. I don't mean anything when I say this, but you adventurers appear to have a lot of brute force. Would you be willing to do some (tasks) for The Combine?'
You say, 'tasks'

Praetor Maestra says, 'I am afraid you will need to speak with Praetor Brimshaw or Krama Alaeus before we speak further.'
