You say, 'Hail, Scout Aliid'
Scout Aliid looks at the armor you are wearing before speaking, 'You are either brave or foolish to enter these caverns wearing those garments. These caves, as you have undoubtedly noticed, have been home to these creatures for a long time. As followers of Sahteb Mahlni, we believe it is our duty to understand what drives every living creature to flourish, even in places such as this. The cycle of life and death requires a force to keep the cycle turning.' He bows his head in reverence before continuing. 'One of the tasks we have given ourselves is to document how these [creatures] live, die, and survive.'

Scout Aliid says, 'Sahteb Mahlni teaches us the importance of finding a force that drives you. With people such as you or I, this driving force can be in the form of legacy, spoils of conquest, or even simply for a better future. However, these creatures run on pure instinct, something else drives them to continue their existence. Something primal that we have to understand. There is a small problem with that. While we, as explorers, are equipped for traversing caves like this, many of us are not skilled in [combat], such as yourself.'
You say, 'combat'
Scout Aliid says, 'Indeed, as you can tell we are trying to find a way to commune with these creatures without destroying them. Unfortunately, it seems that Ehayae has decided to bless these caverns with an abundance of life, where Drinal has decided to slack on their end of the deal. In order for us to continue our research, we will ask you to help clear out some of the more aggressive creatures here in these caves. Some of them have been infected with a strange fungal growth that has appeared when the caverns below shook. We could use your help removing the infected [underbulks], [shriekers], or [fiends]. Which would you prefer to help us with?'
