Tonlyei Lyhin is a female Erudite at +45, +145, +115.

You say, 'Hail, Tonlyei Lyhin'

Tonlyei Lyhin says 'Greetings, ______. I hope this day finds you well. For us, as for many aboard, things are hectic. There are many people in need of new clothing or armor among the Wayfarers, and it is our pleasure to provide them. There are other tasks that we would like to attend to. I have received several samples of skin from the Muramites, and I believe that it can be used in many interesting applications. I would like to work with it if only I had [time].'

You say, 'Time?'

Tonlyei Lyhin says 'Time is precious for me. I wonder, would you be able to aid me by tackling some of my [chores] while I spend some time working with the [Muramite etched scales]?'

You say, 'I will tackle your chores.'

Tonlyei Lyhin says 'Very well then. I appreciate your assistance. I have long suspected that certain Wayfarers have been selling their clothing for drink and that is why they need replacements so frequently. Regardless of the reason, there are several simple items that I need to keep in abundant supply. If you can find the time to help us keep up with those supplies, I would be willing to teach you the method we have discovered for making useful leather out of the scales of those Muramites. There will be a lot of work for you as I won't be handing out this secret easily, but if you think the reward is worth the effort, then let's begin by having you make some simple belts for us. These are not complicated, nor are they meant to last, as there seems to be no point in making durable items for these scallywags. Just take a yard of this cloth and a pattern and place them into your sewing kit and combine them. Please return the belts to me as quickly as you can.'

You receive 20 x Yard of Rough Cloth and 20 x Simple Belt Pattern. Combine 1 of each in your Sewing Kit.

You have learned the recipe Simple Belt!

Simple Belt trivials at 31. After doing 20 combines, hand them back to Tonlyei unstacked, up to four at a time. After handing them all in, say "I will tackle your chores again" and she will give you more Simple Belt components. Repeat the process until she feels you've made enough (approximately 100).

You say, 'I will tackle your chores.'

Tonlyei Lyhin smiles and nods approvingly 'Welcome back. Again, I thank you for your efforts. I suppose it wouldn't shock you to know that my fellow Wayfarers use up a large number of socks every day. Many of them refuse to wear shoes as they traipse about the ship. Others just lose them. I suspect that some of the less reputable folks have been using them to filter tea! So, I have resorted to making a large volume of, well, lesser quality socks to give out to those that seem to require replacements more often than others. I would be grateful if you could create a good number of pairs for me to bolster my supplies. These are easy to make. Just take a yard of this cloth and a pattern and combine them in your sewing kit. Bring the socks to me when you are done. Thank you.'

You receive 20 x Yard of Rough Cloth and 20 x Simple Sock Pattern. Combine 1 of each in your Sewing Kit.

You have learned the recipe Simple Socks!

Simple Socks trivials at 38. After doing 20 combines, hand them back to Tonlyei unstacked, up to four at a time. After handing them all in, say "I will tackle your chores again" and she will give you more Simple Socks components. Repeat the process until she feels you've made enough (approximately 100).

You say, 'I will tackle your chores.'

Tonlyei Lyhin says 'Greetings to you, ______. It appears that our supply of pants has run low again. These are just simple cloth pants meant to be worn around the ship, not to protect anyone from harsh weather or sword cuts. This fabric starts off rough, but when washed it actually becomes rather soft. Sure, it's not silk, and you won't catch me wearing it, but for most that venture about this ship it is more than adequate for their needs. Just take a yard of cloth and a pattern and combine them in your sewing kit. Please bring the pants to me when you are done so that I can get a pair onto one of the halflings, as he is wont to run about without any.'

You receive 20 x Yard of Rough Cloth and 20 x Simple Pants Pattern. Combine 1 of each in your Sewing Kit.

You have learned the recipe Simple Pants!

Simple Pants trivials at 46. After doing 20 combines, hand them back to Tonlyei unstacked, up to four at a time. After handing them all in, say "I will tackle your chores again" and she will give you more Simple Pants components. Repeat the process until she feels you've made enough (approximately 100).

You say, 'I will tackle your chores.'

Tonlyei Lyhin says 'Wonderful! I must say your enthusiasm has brightened my day. I like to keep a good supply of shirts available for those that need replacements and for use by those that wear heavy armor as undershirts. These do not need to be of the best quality, but they need to be well made. I think you can produce a more than adequate shirt. Take a yard of cloth and a shirt pattern and combine them in your sewing kit. When you have the finished shirts, bring them to me.'

You receive 20 x Yard of Rough Cloth and 20 x Simple Shirt Pattern. Combine 1 of each in your Sewing Kit.

You have learned the recipe Simple Shirt!

Simple Shirt trivials at 54. After doing 20 combines, hand them back to Tonlyei unstacked, up to four at a time. After handing them all in, say "I will tackle your chores again" and she will give you more Simple Shirt components. Repeat the process until she feels you've made enough (approximately 100).

You say, 'I will tackle your chores.'

Tonlyei Lyhin smiles and clasps your hand for a moment. 'You have been of such great assistance to us that I can no longer ask you to spend your days working for us. I thank you. Please, allow me to show you the secret to preparing Muramite etched scales. This method will work on the younger and aged scales.' Tonlyei opens her sewing kit and shows you the contents. The kit is old, the tools you see there have been handed down by generations in her family. She points to a clearly marked bottle of liquid, a common substance that you might not have thought to use when working with this material. She explains that if you use it liberally when working with the Muramite scales it will reduce the brittleness that tends to develop over time, and makes it possible to work with them. You know that you can use this method, and you even suspect that you will be able to improve on it if you work with the scales for a while. Tonlyei bows slightly to you 'May Prexus guard the waters of your life, ______.'

There is a related quest for those who have less patience and want to learn to refine the materials:

https://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/npc.html?id=14321 - Garald Samer

He requires you to give him a Preserved Muramite Etched Scale for each set of combines, however, he only asks you to do 10 at a time and only 4 sets (ie: 40 combines) per tier before teaching you the recipes.

I've posted the full details under his entry

If you are frustrated about not getting more materials when asking "chores", you propably have Salvage AA.

You HAVE to delete any exess ingrediant, eg a simple piece of cloth returned by Salvage. She will only give more materials if you are empty.
still naked

I just started playing EQ 1 a few days ago and Im naked. I completed this task was was disappointed that I couldn't put the clothes on. What can I make to wear right now?

ps.
I found a guide saying ruined pelts to make patchwork. I guess a stack of cat pelts and patterns is all I need?

Unless you're seriously strapped for platinum, don't waste your time on this. Instead, just combine Woven Mandrake all the way to skill 66. The recipe is simply 2xMandrake Root, which can be bought in PoK from Severg O`Danos in the western trader building (Alchemy/Potion merchant room)

dont bother

takes way too long for what it gives. you fail 50% of the combines so you end up with about 10 belts per turn in. i turned in at least 500 belts and she wouldn't let me advance.

I just did these combines and they worked for me. Every 20 combines produced right around 13 finished pieces. Took about 100-150 completed pieces to get the next 'group' of stuff to make. Not the most efficient way to skillup but it's still free.
A problem to be aware of
# Feb 19 2006 at 7:05 PM Rating: Decent
I did my first combines and handed in the belts, but she wouldn't give me any more materials saying I had to finish the work she gave me. I had run out of patterns but still had 2 pieces of cloth in my inventory due to having salvage AA.

I had to destroy the cloth in my inventory before she would give me more.

quick turn in

Stop at 54

Once you get 54 in tailoring, quit. She doesn't hand you anything. She doesn't add the Scales recipe to you tailoring kit. It all a mute point past getting your skill up. If anyone else has found this to been incorrect, please post your findings.

No.....Keep going
This problem seems to have been fixed.
The quest can be a little confusing as after completing the first hand in you do not receive any reward or new ingredients. You have keep repeating the phrase 'What chores' to get new ingredients until you have handed in 400
completed combines (100 of each type).After handing in 100 of each combine (separately ...not stacked) and saying 'What chores' you will receive different ingredients. SO you can tell if you are making progress. Once you hand in the 400 combine and then say 'What chores' you will get no more ingredients but instead a message of thanks and the new recipe. The quest does work.... It is just a little short on messages that you are progressing.

If you keep going your skill will not go up more. Once you make 100 of the shirts, however, you get this:
Tonlyei Lyhin smiles and clasps your hand for a moment. 'You have been of such great assistance to us that I can no longer ask you to spend your days working for us. I thank you. Please, allow me to show you the secret to preparing Muramite etched scales. This method will work on the younger and aged scales.' Tonlyei opens her sewing kit and shows you the contents. The kit is old, the tools you see there have been handed down by generations in her family. She points to a clearly marked bottle of liquid, a common substance that you might not have thought to use when working with this material. She explains that if you use it liberally when working with the Muramite scales it will reduce the brittleness that tends to develop over time, and makes it possible to work with them. You know that you can use this method, and you even suspect that you will be able to improve on it if you work with the scales for a while. Tonlyei bows slightly to you 'May Prexus guard the waters of your life, Moderator.'
Then I asked, "what muramite etched scales" and she says:
'As horrific as it seems, the creatures that have invaded Taelosia are part beast and part men, or so I'm told. They appear to have intellect and many functions like men, but their physiology is very different from ours in many ways. For me, the most interesting thing is that they wear the scales of another creature as armor. It seems that those that have armor, make it from the scales of the same creature. These scales are as tough as any animal, and treated and tanned properly we can make it into a very durable and supple material. I know the secret for preparing those scales. I'd be happy to prepare any Muramite Etched Scales you can bring me. The stuff is very strange, and it is difficult to get large usable pieces, but I'll give you the majority of what I can cull from it. I'll also keep a bit of it for myself as payment for the work.'
