|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|Anniversary events tend to run from mid-March to mid-April (sometimes to mid-May) each year. They are not available during the "off season".
For an overview and list of EverQuest Anniversary events, see this quest entry.
This is a shared task (1-6 players) introduced with EverQuest's 13th anniversary. It's expected to only be available during anniversary season (mid-March through mid-April).
It begins with Sam Napth, a Halfling in the Plane of Knowledge at about -215, -90, -155 (next to the Soulbinder).
You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'
Sam Napth says 'I've been expecting you. I have great need of adventurers to help me deal with an important issue. There are a lot of tasks that need doing, I'd be grateful if you could help me out. You see, I've been trying to prove to some important people that such things are foolishness. So I've arranged some tests to prove it.'
A task window pops up offering several anniversary tasks.
You have been assigned the task 'Ferocious Feralings'.
Sam Napth has asked you to head to Rivervale and find out if there is any truth surrounding the Feraling superstition.
Speak with Sam Napth 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)
You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'
Sam Napth says 'Business takes me many places, _____, but rarely do my travels take me home. It's been far too long since I've sat on a stool in the Fool's Gold, enjoying a piece of pie!' The reminiscing halfling rubs his belly with closed eyes and a warm smile, 'I could eat an entire slice in just a few bites, but I probably don't need to lecture you on how much us furry-footed folks love sweets. Everyone east of the Abysmal Sea knows you can't keep a halfling from his pie! What I bet you didn't know is the [superstition] that goes along with it.''
You say, 'What superstition?'
Sam Napth says 'Ever wonder why we scarf down pie so quickly? Sure, it has a little to do with our tendency to be on the tubby side, but more so it involves an old [tale] which says that eating even the tiniest bit of pie after dark can turn a halfling into a crazed creature, known to the children of Rivervale as a Feraling.'
You say, 'What tale?'
Sam Napth says 'Of course, this is likely something we tell our young to keep their teeth from rotting out after too much pie. If we didn't threaten them with the possibility of morphing into a hideous creature, they'd simply stay up all night stuffing their pie holes! Nevertheless, I think this is something that I would like to [investigate].'
You say, 'Investigate?'
Sam Napth says 'My business thrives on being able to obtain and sell unique items from all over Norrath. If such a thing as a Feraling exists, I am positive I can find a client willing to pay a hefty amount of platinum for it. Since I won't be heading home anytime soon, I'd like you to head to Rivervale and see if you can find anything truth to this superstition. If you do find a Feraling, try to wrangle it into a [cage] and return it to me.'
You say, 'What cage?'
Sam Napth happily hands you a medium-sized cage, 'I happen to know a shortcut to Rivervale, so whenever you're ready to go, just say the word and I'll [send] you on your way!
You receive a Medium-Sized Cage.
You say, 'Send me away'
Sam Napth says 'Excellent. I await your return.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Rivervale.
Ask the Rivervale residents about Feralings 0/1 (Rivervale)
Task Window Says: Speak to any halflings that reside in Rivervale until you can find some useful information about the Feralings.
Target halflings and ask "What Feralings?" until you get a task update:
Deputy Hiltop gives you a harsh glare, 'Don't come around here asking questions about Feralings! You'll scare the youngins.'
Deputy Gozan says 'Superstition says they're nasty little critters. Always hungry, but hate water. If you see one though, I'd have your eyesight checked, 'cause they only truly exist in the imaginations of children.'
Meeka Diggs pauses for a second, as if to question your sincerity, 'So you've been seeing some strange things, too?' The paranoid halfling leans toward you and continues with careful whispers, 'The Fool's Gold has been serving up a strange slice of pie. Some of the on-duty deputies that come in for a late bite are never heard from again. While no one wants to admit there's a problem, the Fool's Gold is now shutting its doors at dusk. They say it's because business is slow, but I think Blinza knows more than she lets on.'
Your task 'Ferocious Feralings' has been updated.
Speak to Blinza Toepopal in the Fool's Gold 0/1 (Rivervale)
You say, 'Hail, Blinza Toepopal'
Blinza Toepopal says 'I'm sorry stranger. We stopped serving pies as soon as the sun went down. I couldn't even get you a slice if I wanted to. The boss makes me box up all the pies and store them at the Inn until morning. I guess our patrons tend to get a bit rowdy when there's too much pie going around late at night.'
Sneak into the Inn at night and retrieve a crate of pies 0/1 (Rivervale)
Task Window Says: Blinza mentioned the pies are being stored at the Inn to the west. It must be dark out before you attempt to steal the crate of pies!
The crate is located in the basement of the Weary Foot Inn a little ways north of the zone-in. There are several see-invis/KOS halfling guards guarding the halls. They hit for a max ~8,000.
Destroy the crate and loot "Crate of Pies" from it to update this step.
Feed the pie to Rivervale deputies at night 0/1 (Rivervale)
Task Window Says: Once it is dark out, use the crate of pies to feed deputies a slice. If it's not dark out, you can rest at the inn until nightfall.
Target any random Deputies and right-click the crate from your inventory.
You pull a jum-jum pie from the crate and feed it to a halfling.
Deputy Deego thanks you for the slice of pie, 'This is delicious!'
You pull a lumpy looking pie from the crate and feed it to a halfling.
Deputy Zopo appears violently ill after eating a bite of pie.
A ferocious feraling appears and makes its way to a residence:
From beyond the wooden door you can her a woman shout, 'Shoo, Feraling, shoo! I don't have any more pie!'
Follow the feraling 0/1 (Rivervale)
Speak to Uma Sweetcookie 0/1 (Rivervale)
You say, 'Hail, Uma Sweetcookie'
Uma Sweetcookie says 'So you're the one that followed the Feraling to my doorstep?' The baker lets out a heavy sigh, 'Please, you can't tell anyone what you saw! My sweet shop will be out of business for good. As soon as I found out my pies were causing, uh... allergies, I immediately switched up the [ingredients].''
You say, 'What ingredients?'
Uma Sweetcookie says 'I've been using a blend of piranha meat, a sprinkle of shimmering dust, and some meaty rodent bones for flavor.' The resourceful baker places both hands on her hips in a defensive stance, 'Don't judge me! Baking is expensive, and rodent parts are free. If you want me to bake you a pie, you'll bring me the ingredients without complaint!''
Bring Uma chunky piranha meat 0/3 (Rivervale)
Bring Uma meaty rodent bones 0/3 (Rivervale)
Bring Uma shimmering dust 0/3 (Rivervale)
These items drop from the rats, drakes, and piranhas in the zone.
Speak to Uma and receive your special pie 0/1 (Rivervale)
NOTE: This hail locks the task.
Uma Sweetcookie says 'One of my special pies, coming right up! If you bring me more ingredients, I'll bake you another.'
Feed a Rivervale Deputy one of Uma's pies after dark 0/1 (Rivervale)
Note: If it's note night time, you can "rest" at the inn. It will change to night time.
The deputy will transform into "a ferocious feraling". Beat it down to 50% and use the cage on it.
Use the cage to capture a weakened feraling 0/1 (Rivervale)
You receive a "Captured Feraling".
Return the captured Feraling to Sam Napth 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)
Say "home" to the Innkeep and turn in to Sam Napth.
Experience (about 1 AA at Level 95) + one of:
---- Option #1: 135 platinum
---- Option #2: Sweetcookie's Special Pie
