You say, 'Hail, Archivist Dominic Moore'
Archivist Dominic Moore says 'Welcome, _____. It is good to see new faces around here. I am Dominic Moore, head archivist in charge of cataloguing and storing all important [relics] we unearth from the ruins of the Qeynosian expedition party. If you come across anything that appears to be of historical significance, I would gladly reward you with what funds our camp has available.'
You say, 'What relics?'
Archivist Dominic Moore says 'Any relics you come across when scouting the valley leading to the Tower of Rot are of interest, though I am primarily concerned with piecing together facts about the lives of the men and women who escorted Sir Kyle Bayle to this dead land. Things such as books, letters, and family heirlooms are all integral to reconstructing the history of who these brave souls were. Anything new you are able to deliver will be worth a modest coin reward.'
If you hand him something that he's not interested in, you'll see something like this:
Archivist Dominic Moore holds the Dig Site Instructions you have handed to him and surveys it curiously before speaking. 'Interesting, but not something I'm looking for.' He then hands it back to you.
If you hand him one of the items he's looking for, you'll see this:
Archivist Dominic Moore pauses, 'Hmm, someone contributing to our cause like this should have the [necessary tools] to navigate the dangerous traps found in dig sites.'
Archivist Dominic Moore holds the Torn Excavation Report and surveys the relic with keen interest. A few seconds pass before he smiles and reaches into his pocket to grab a few coins to reward you for your troubles. His voice is tinged with excitement, 'An excellent find indeed, _____. I shall catalogue this discovery and add it to our archives. Thank you for your help today.'
You say, 'What necessary tools?'
Archivist Dominic Moore turns to his pack of supplies and produces an impressive clockwork machine. He hands it to you and smiles, 'No archaeologist should be without such an ingenious device. Its usefulness will improve as you collect more relics for our cause. In the meantime, it should serve as a suitable instrument for disarming the dangers that lie between you and historical treasures.'
You receive the "Archaeologist's Automated Antiquity Analyzer".
