You say, 'Hail, Hurble'
Hurble says 'I don't know what is going on around here, but I could really use your [help].'
You say, 'What help?'
Hurble says 'I am the captain of the merchant airship you see behind me. Two days ago I set sail from Erudin on my way to Felwithe with a shipment of spell books. As I approached the Buried Sea, strong winds beset my airship and carried me all the way here, and eventually forced me to make an emergency landing. That is not the [worst part] though.'
You say, 'What's the worst part?'
Hurble says 'The shipment of spell books I was carrying have sprung to life! It's the darndest thing I have ever seen! I need someone to [take care] of this mess. My crew fled into the icy wastes once the books started flying around, so I have no one else to help me.'
You say, 'I will take care of it'
Hurble says 'Um, something else you may need to know. I may have, um, stolen a particularly powerful spell book from a rather cantankerous wizard. When we crashed here, the other spell books ripped the mysterious tome to shreds, eating some very important pages. I need to get those pages back.'
You have been assigned the task 'This Can't Be Good!'.
Hurble was transporting some spell books on his airship when he crashed in the Eastern Wastes. The spell books have come alive and must be dealt with.

Speak with Falmonius 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

If people care these days about the quest text being here on the quest page, here it is:
After handing in pages:
Hurble places the pages into the badly tattered spell book and the tome begins to glow. Hurble quickly throws the tome to the ground. 'Um, you may want to stand back.' The tome erupts in purple flames. The flames grow in intensity and a mass of magical energy bursts forth, almost knocking you to the ground. Six motes of light fly from the book and head into various directions further into the Eastern Wastes. Hurble looks worried. 'I don't think that was supposed to happen. I suppose I have no choice, but to tell you what's [really going on].'
You say, 'What's really going on?'
Hurble says, 'The truth is that I stole these spell books from my master, Falmonius and when he finds out, he will not be very pleased with me to put it mildly. This particular spell book was used to imprison six very angry shadows that Falmonius captured while in the Plane of Shadow. There must be some sort of mysterious magic here that has animated the spell books. I am afraid I am going to have to ask you to talk to [Falmonius].'
You say, 'You want me to be your fall guy with Falmonius?'
Hurble says, 'He is not going to be pleased, but he needs to know what has happened here. I would talk to him, but I am pretty sure he would incinerate me on the spot when he found out what I have done. When he isn't stalking the various planes of existence, he can be found perusing the spell vendors in the Plane of Knowledge. Take the spell book and give it to him. He will know what must be done.'
After handing in book:
You say, 'Hail, Falmonius'
Falmonius's brow furrows as you explain what just took place in the Eastern Wastes. 'Hurble! That idiot! I shall deal with him later. In the meantime it is vital that those shadows be [rebound] to the tome.'
You say, 'How would they be rebound?'
Falmonius says 'From what you have described, those motes of light that escaped the tome are most likely the shadows, escaping their prison. Those shadows must be contained! Gather some adventuring supplies and once you are ready to continue, speak with me again.
