You say, 'Hail, Bill Whistletop'
Bill Whistletop says 'Hi-oh there, _____. You startled me. I'm busy compiling notes for my compendium; it'll be a complete [history] or Rivervale for an entire century. Imagine that!'
You say, 'What history?'
Bill Whistletop says 'Well, it's not really a history book, not exactly. It's more like I just sit around and write about whatever's [going on] in Rivervale at the moment. I've been doing this for thirty seven years now, so, um, hey, I'm almost half done!'
You say, 'So, what has been going on?'
Bill Whistletop says 'Yeah, I write down everything: fishing trips, crop yields, new card games I pick up. Hmm, I guess it's more of a journal then a history book. . . Oh well, it's still chalk full of historical [significance].'
You say, 'What kind of significance?'
Bill Whistletop says 'Heck yes, I write down everything so some of it has got to be important. For example, I copied down all those [armor patterns] and [cultural symbol patterns] that were displayed during that spring festival eleven years ago. You know the one where we had that competition to see who could make the best suit of armor! Boy, that was a great festival. The apple tarts were amazing. I'm glad I wrote down the recipe for those too!'
You say, 'What armor patterns?'
Bill Whistletop says 'Oh, you're interested in the armor, huh? I guess you do look like the adventuring sort. Well, heck, I can make you an armor pattern book if you want? I have all the designs written down and recorded somewhere in one of my journals; all I'll need is the materials for the pattern book itself. Just bring me a cat skull cap for the cover, a fractured femur for the spine, a minotaur horn for the clasp, and a bunch of optic nerves to grind down and make a salve, which will protect and preserve the finished product. I hear these items can be found in the Runnyeye Goblin territory and the Beholder's Maze, but I'm not really sure? Anyway, once I have those, I can make you a pattern book. Hey, then we can go fishing!'
Obtain your Ancestral Book: Turn in a cat skull cap, fractured femur, a minotaur horn, and a bunch of optic nerves.
Bill Whistletop says 'Oh, hey there, Dryssa. I'm still working on my history book. In fact, I just wrote down the part where we first met. Here let me read it for you!' Bill clears his throat, 'Ahem, so I was writing my history book when Dryssa comes up to me and says 'Hail.' And so I reply. . .' Bill continues to ramble on for many minutes. Finally, he gets to the end of his journal and looks up. He blinks as though surprised that you are still here. 'Oh, yeah, the armor pattern book. Sorry, I forgot about that. Here you go!'
Receive Ancestral Halfling Armor Book.
You say, 'What cultural symbol patterns?'
Bill Whistletop says 'You're interested in the cultural symbol patterns I see. I can give you a book of cultural symbol patterns but I will need you to run a few tasks for me before I can give them to you. What do you say; would you like to run a few short [tasks] for me?'
You say, 'I will do your tasks.'
Bill Whistletop says 'I have four tasks that need to be completed. The first is an adventure into [Beholder's Maze] where you will clear a path for young Halflings so they can make a safe passage through the maze to East Karana. The next you will be tasked with venturing into the heart of [the Hole] where you hunt for some ingredients for my drip clock. The third task leads you into [Karnor's Castle] where you will collect bone specimen for my collection. The final task you will adventure into [Stillmoon temple] and learn about the creatures that inhabit the area.'
You say, 'I will go to the Beholder's Maze.'
