War Historian Kobl (General Supplies) may be found in the Warriors Guild at -596, -237. He's on Find (Ctrl+F).

You say, 'Hail War Historian Kobl'

War Historian Kobl says, 'You have come to learn, have you not? I have knowledge of importance to young warriors of the legion. Or perhaps you are a scribe seeking my [unique writing materials]!'

You say, 'What unique writing materials?'

War Historian Kobl says, 'You must be a scribe of sorts? Always glad to assist a talented youth. I make two things unique to Cabilis and important to any future scribe. I can create [blood ink] and [illweed parchment].'

You say, 'What blood ink?'

War Historian Kobl says, 'If blood ink is what you seek, only I can provide it. I use a unique blend prepared by my secret method. I can supply you with a vial of blood ink, but first you must fetch me four ingredients. I need globules of blood from certain creatures. I need globules from the carnivorous plants, leeches, and mosquitoes. I also need globules from the blood pit of the Tower of Death. Bring me these and be quick, or the blood will disintegrate.'

Need all dialogues, quest mobs and their /locs, quest items, current faction hits, quest rewards, additional zones, confirmation about how to obtain illweed, etc.

Despite the quest not being solved I was able to find a guy wanting it in the OT Dark Elf fort. I posted the text at this:

No, I believe you can buy the stuff for the Tradesman from the necro guild merchants since those same items are normally used in int based class research practice(quill and parchment).

Foraging

Im not sure if foraging in the blood poll will get you the Blood Gobule from the Tower of Death, but I do know that the Illweed is found by foraging. Its a uncommon forage.

If you read his text all of the way through he tells you that the only way to get illweed is to go fishing in LOIO.

I have foraged 'Water reeds' in Loio, but never foraged an Illweed. Tried water reed's and he doesn't accept them (though maybe he is broken, I can't be sure).

i was always wondering how the water extracter sold in fob worked..never figured it out but wonder if you use it to get the blood from the tower pit
Who has done this?

I have been looking for the blood globules, including in swamp of no hope and in EJ. Not to mention the one in the tower of death. Has anyone found any?

It's worse than that. I spent hours and hours trying to find blood globules, only to find none. Spent at least 3 hours in the blood pool in the tower of death - nothing spawns there, unless it is VERY rare. So I tried the parchment. I had two friends with VERY high fishing skill (over 200) who spent hours trying to fish out an illweed reed. It doesn't exist. One of them was there until he had caught 200 fish; and still no illweed reed. Who/where do you report broken quests? Perhaps this actually was implemented in beta or something, and never carried over. Dadathius, Povar

Maybe gobules is another word for the blood sacs
(root gob? meaning a bit of slimy matter?)

Blood Globules used to drop in the Swamp of No Hope.
They dropped on skeeters (low level) Leeches and plants.
They stopped dropping when wings stopped dropping on skeeters for a time. They fixed the wing drop but never fixed the blood globules.
