You say, 'What problem?'

Sneed Galliway says 'Shhh.. Keep it down. It seems I have a little rodent problem in my store. A mangy rat keeps digging into my crates of rations. He looks as if he is diseased. If you help me by killing this pest, I will make it worth your while. Bring me his head as proof it is done.'

"a mangy rat" spawns periodically upstairs. Kill it and loot a Rat Head. Give the head to Sneed.

You can actually do this quest at Level 1. I didn't get a reward item, though.

Updated, thanks.
Hope you like waiting

You have to sit through like 10 to 20 sewer rat spawns to get the mangy one to pop. This can take as long as 1-2 hours, sometimes less if someone else was there ahead of you and got disgusted with the waiting. It takes far too long for the few paltry coins you usually get. You rarely get anything else. Your time as a newbie is better spent out in the yard in front of the gate killing stuff and selling the loot.

I most definitely agree. I tried it with several new PCs until I looted the necessary head off a Mangy Rat. I suggest totally ignoring this quest unless you trip over the Mangy rat while running by.

Who are the Circle of Unseen Hands? and more importantly, why do they care if I'm ridding this guys house of rat?

Hanel,

The mangy rat is still there; I've seen it many times. You just have to keep killing sewer rats until it spawns.
I've seen and killed this mangy rat

Sewer Rats?

I've never seen a mangy rat either. Only a sewer rat, and they never drop a head. Only whiskers and ears and the normal rat stuff. When does the mangy rat come out?
Not just iron ration

You can receive a fishing pole from Sneed for this quest, which is great for a newbie, since rusty daggers sell for 2 silver and bait costs less than a muffin to buy (well, unless you're a magician like myself, in which case you'll never go hungry or thirsty, unlike those silly wizards).

Also btw, remember dark elves are meant to have difficulty 5 - make them feel it! Duel every one you see!
Mangy Rat Spawn

How often does the mangy rat spawn? I've only come across sewer rats.
Caution on Circle faction

The search indicates that this quest raises Circle of Unseen Hands, while in fact it lowers (as the quest text indicates)
