A Darkfell Fang sells for absolutely nothing....

Giving 10 Darkfell Fangs to Warden Jakar at (location neg 1268, neg 1117, plus 43) the sparring room, (up the elevator in crescent reach to the second floor) results in a reward of 5 darkfell wineshot (wis +4, int +4, mana +10; magic item, not trade, this is a refreshing drink. wt. 0.2 size: tiny class: all race: all)

Your task 'Cull the Gnolls' has been updated

Yellow Text after turning in the ten a darkfell fang:

Though the threat remains, your efforts have not gone unnoticed and are appreciated. If you ever have more free time your help would be appreciated in these issues again.
You gain experience!!
You have successfully been granted your reward for: Cull the Gnolls

I tried giving him an eleventh 'a darkfell fang' and he returned it to me. You must have the quest to turn the fangs in. Sorry I did not get the text for getting the quest. Will try to get it with another personae and add to this later.


I said 'Hail, Warden Jakar'

Warden Jakar says 'Vasha, stranger. I am Warden Jakar. I hope you find our home to your liking. I must ask you to keep your weapons in their sheaths and your spells unspoken while in Crescent Reach. My people have too [many enemies] outside the city to wish for any inside it.

I said 'many enemies?'

Warden Jakar says 'Well, I can not speak of this in great details, but a wise person will understand more than I can say. Most of our effort is spent keeping the wild animals and other dangerous locals. My duty extends beyond that simple, obvious problem. It is my task to foresee danger from a greater distance. I must deal with [matters] much more difficult.'

I said 'matters?'

Warden Jakar says 'I can not discuss the most intimate details with a stranger, but if you wish to help I can certainly use the assistance. Perhaps you have a preference about which enemy you face? [Goblins] perhaps? Or [gnolls]? Or if you are braver and more skilled, perhaps you will kill some [kobolds] or [orcs] for us. I can only ask the most powerful strangers to battle with the northern [giants], are you one of those? If not, that is fine. Please enjoy the safety of the city while you are here.

I said 'gnolls?'

Warden Jakar says 'The Gnolls of the Steppes are cunning and dangerous. I believe that they are responsible for an [alliance] between their tribes and those of the goblins. In the last few years both the goblins and the gnolls have grown more numberous. If there is no alliance between the two, there at least has been a cessation of fighting between them. This has strengthened by both of those tribes and they might soon become a problem for Crescent Reach. You would be doing our small city a service if you could reduce the number of gnolls wondering the Steppes. If you have some friends to help however, there may be a greater task you could [help] us with.'

The task window appears with the quest 'Cull the Gnolls: duration unlimited... The gnolls in the steppes are always a danger to travelers and at some point they may pose a danger to the city itself shold tehy get organized. Jakar is always willing to reward people for killing them. [This task begins in The Steppes]

The task window appears: objective instructions: Loot 10 darkfell fangs in the Steppes. When you have done that, one is told to give them to Warden Jakar in Crescent Reach.

If you continue the dialogue by saying 'help?',,,
You get the following text...


I said 'help?'

Warden Jakar says 'Amongst the gnolls the basic fighters are easy enough to deal with. It is their elite soldiers that support those fighters that make the battles difficult. We need someone to attack the gnolls and slay several of these elite soldiers. Without them the morale of the gnolls will falter and should make them easy prey for our soldiers.'

Then the task screen appeared:
Task 'Sweeping the Steppes: Gnolls Duration: 6 hours
Warden Jakar would like you to raid the gnoll encampments and slay as many gnolls as you can. It is likely the gnolls will send their elite troops after you for doing so, but if you can slay them it will deal a sever blow to the gnoll forces. [This task begins in The Steppes]
