... it can't be turned into Bindral Argaff for a Illusion scroll. I tried and I get the response:

Bindral Argaff stares at the item curiously before looking back up at you, 'I am... not quite sure what to say about this item. It does not appear to be something I can give you any reward for. It may not contain an illusion novel enough to separate itself from things you could already learn to cast, or it may be an item of limited activations. Either way, it will not offer a possible cure to my condition, so it is of no use to me. I thank you anyway, Enchanter.'

In Greater Faydark
[Sun Nov 01 19:04:39 2009] Your Location is -1115.13, -1930.06, 25.14
[Sun Nov 01 19:04:40 2009] You say, 'NPC is her'
[Sun Nov 01 19:04:40 2009] Leavalin Mossbite regards you indifferently -- what would you like your tombstone to say?

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:40 2009] You say, 'Hail, Leavalin Mossbite'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:41 2009] Leavalin Mossbite says 'Hail adventurer! Please, I know you have much to do, but the Faydark needs your [assistance]!'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:46 2009] You say, 'assistance'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:47 2009] Leavalin Mossbite says 'The forest and her people are under attack by nefarious magics! Someone, most likely a necromancer of great power, has planted some sort of seeds in the forest to the north west of here. These seeds cannot be purged from the ground despite the best efforts of our druids. And now that the Nights of the Dead have arrived, these seeds are coming to [life]!'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:54 2009] You say, 'life'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:54 2009] Leavalin Mossbite says 'Perhaps life was not the proper word. The seeds are sprouting into deadly skulls! They spring from the ground and gather their strength for but a moment, then they seek out the good folk of the forest and attack them with dark magic! It is believed that the skulls will cease to sprout once the Nights of the Dead have passed, but until then we need help crushing them. They must be crushed with a magical shillelagh that I can provide you, and it must be done moments after they sprout. Unfortunately the power of the shillelagh is short lived, so you must hurry and crush as many as you can. I can even offer a small reward should you defeat a satisfactory number of them in time. Will you [help]?'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:57 2009] You say, 'help'

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:57 2009] You have been assigned the task 'Necromancer's Garden'.

[Sun Nov 01 19:04:57 2009] Leavalin Mossbite says 'Thank you! Here is what you need. Go quickly and go with the will of Tunare and the thunder of Karana!'

[Sun Nov 01 19:06:28 2009] You say, 'Given: Blessed Shillelagh'

Destroy the skulls growing in Greater Faydark before they become too powerful. - 0/10 - Greater Faydark

[Sun Nov 01 19:06:08 2009] You say, 'rewards: Floating Skull Potion and Worm Skull Muffin'

EDIT: Some other Notes: It's a timed quest and very short 5min or less, I forget the exact time. The clicky on the Shillelagh only takes the skulls down about 18-20%, so it takes several clicks and with 6 sec reclick timer, it works that this task is practically impossible solo to do within the time limit. The skulls are in the area NE of the quest npc in general.
