You say, 'Hail, Korah Kai the Gardener'
Korah Kai the Gardener purrs in amusement, throwing a brief gesture in the direction of the chimney. 'I see you met the [old man].'
You say, 'Old man? You mean the gnome?'
Korah Kai the Gardener nods, 'That's the one. His name is Binkl Dirkwafer. He's lived here in the Umbral Plains since before Norrathians rediscovered Luclin.' Her gaze turns towards the chimney again, her expression warm and tender towards the crotchety gnome. 'He won't open up about it, but he's been through a lot. Speaking of...' She turns back towards the adventurer. 'What brings you to the Umbral Plains? Are you here on a [job]?'
You say, 'A job? I'm actually here looking for work. Do you need help?'
Korah Kai the Gardener sighs in relief. 'I really could use your help, actually.' An ear flicks, and her gaze moves back towards Binkl's chimney. 'You need to get his [favor] first to keep hanging around as you are.'
You say, 'I'll do what I need to earn his favor.'
Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'Let's set up some magical wards to ease the pressure on the security drone. It will require a few elemental essences to function, but if you can [get them], we can set it up and hopefully he'll be placated enough to let us speak'
You say, 'I'll get them. No problem.'
Your task 'Get Off My Lawn' has been updated.
Korah Kai the Gardener says, 'Alright!' She jubilantly reaches for the adventurer's journal. 'Here, I'll mark the "shopping list" for you. Bring back all four, and we can build the ward from there.'
