|This is a shared task which begins with Talendor (/loc?) in the Field of Scale.
You say, 'Hail, Talendor'
Talendor says 'Hello. I wonder what brings such as you to a place like this. Surely you were not asked here by the Ring of Scale. This is a [battle] that we must undertake ourselves. You may, I suppose, be an agent of the Iksar, though that seems [unlikely].'
You say, 'What battle?'
Talendor says 'War would be more appropriate. Typical of its type, I suppose. Incident leads to reciprocation, leading to escalation and eventually spinning out of control. We won't be done with this until the Iksar have been taught a [severe lesson]. It is unwise to challenge the Ring of Scale. We are the mightiest creatures in the lands and none can withstand our might. Numbers and, well, [reusability], are the only thing that has kept these creatures in the fight this long.'
You say, 'A severe lesson?'
Talendor says 'I doubt that anything less than near destruction will end their aggression and foolish dreams of empire. So we shall deliver that destruction. For now there is a lull, but soon enough our wrath shall bring down their wall and their meager, mortal empire.'
You say, 'Reusability?'
Talendor says 'They recover the multitudes of their corpses after our battles and drag them away. Their necromancers animate their bones and return them to the field. I find it amusing that they seem to fight better once they are dead than when they were living.'
You say, 'I'm unlikely to be an Iksar agent...'
Talendor says 'Likely or not, perhaps you can do something for me. If you fail, or if you are indeed a servant to the Iksar, no matter. But perhaps you will actually succeed. I have in mind a bit of sabotage. Nothing violent, though unless you are an enemy agent you will likely have to kill a few Iksar to accomplish the task. You see, the Iksar keep their eggs in a hatchery. The hatchery serves all Iksar of any importance. Royalty, favored merchants, war heroes and even some favored servants. They seem to think that a faithful and functional servant will breed those qualities true. All of these eggs need careful tending and careful book keeping to ensure that a royal egg remains a royal egg and that a servant is not given care of a young royal after hatching. This has given me a mind to introduce some [havoc] to their careful organization.'
You say, 'Some havoc?'
Talendor says 'It's a simple enough plan. Shuffle their papers. Swap their eggs. Even if the actual changes you make are small, the confusion and panic over the possible repercussions will certainly vex and disturb all of Sebilis. This is a goal worth achieving, and it has an added amusement value attached. [Will] you do this?'
You say, 'I will'
Talendor says 'Perhaps we shall meet again.'
You have been assigned the task 'Havoc in the Hatchery'.
Talendor, with a wicked gleam in his eye, asked you to get into the Kaesora hatchery and create trouble for the Iksar. But he did not ask you to destroy their eggs. His request was a bit more sinister and, perhaps, childish. He has asked you to disrupt the organization of their hatchery. Each egg has a carefully tracked history. Each egg is placed in a location and that location is tracked by the broodkeepers. The Iksar royalty fear the possibility that their young might end up with lesser parents, and a simple bit of egg swapping and document swapping could cause endless disruption and doubt in the minds of many Iksar.
These are known to drop frequently from "an imperial broodkeeper" in the hatchery.
Clear out the rooms and click on eggs until you see:
You successfully swap a few eggs.
Your task 'Havoc in the Hatchery' has been updated.
At 25.34, 318.62, -125.55, there is a Legacy Log. Pick it up and combine the Sebilisian Legacies in it. The combine MUST be done in the hall of records. The container filled with pages disappears, presumably back into the shelves, and the task updates.
A number of Chronobines (varies)
