|Prerequisite Quests: A Petitioner's Plight and any one of the Trial of Smoke tasks.
This is a shared task.
You can get this quest from Riana Gadliun in Stratos at -154, -75, +154 straight south of the entrance as you are coming around the islands from the entrance going back east.
You say, 'Hail, Rianar Gadliun'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'Hello Jeffro. I am Rianar. I have come here to learn what I can of these jann, their society, and their magic. Perhaps you can assist me? You do look like an [adventurer], after all.'
You say, 'adventurer'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'Perhaps you are just the thing I need. You see I have been trying to get these beings to talk to me, but most of the time they treat me either as an idiot or as if I were trying to trick them in some way. It is obvious that they don't think much of us 'mortals'. I am a researcher, and my usual methods of inquiry have proven unsuccessful to date. I have [learned] very little.'
You say, 'learned'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'Well, I am most certainly willing to share what little I do know. It is obvious by their appearance that these jann are of the same breed in some way. How that came to be is one of the things I would dearly like to know. When you consider the inherent [volatility] of their respective elements it seems odd to me that they appear so [civil] to each other.'
You say, 'volatility'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'Surely you know that air is devoured by fire as it burns? Earth, when mixed with water, becomes an entirely different thing. And of course you know the water extinguishes fire. I have heard talk of a plane of smoke, which appears to have come into existence in between, if such a thing is really possible, the two greater elemental planes of air and fire. Apparently this was the result of battle between the two planes in ancient times.'
You say, 'civil'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'It is my best guess, and it bothers me that this is only a [guess], that the answer to their apparent civility is related to their complex interactions. It all seems to be governed by a set of rules that is so complex that even they seem to have difficulty parsing them properly. I suspect that our lack of understanding of these rules is part of why they think so little of us.'
You say, 'guess'
Rianar Gadliun says, 'Guesses upset me, even when they stand on a reasonable foundation of fact. That is what I am hoping you can help me with. I would be grateful for any information you could bring me about the society of the jann, or, frankly, any information at all will be helpful. Since we are here, we should probably begin with the djinn.'
You have been assigned the task 'Political Awareness'.
(We need all dialogue, locations, related NPC's, Task Window text for each step.)
