|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|Find Kaam Rahiir in the libraries near the palace (loc -260, 120). Hand him your claws for inspection.
Kaam Rahiir turns to you and squints at the claws that you've just given him. 'I see that you've been getting some use out of these things. They are crude, but they seem sturdy enough.' He says as he returns the claws. He hands you a small bag and continues, 'I hope the combat you've seen has made an impression on you, young friend. Combat is not pleasant, but it is often unavoidable. We are explorers and conflict often breeds in the unknown. Learn from each encounter and you are less likely to be trapped by conflict in the future.'
You get the claws back along with a 2-slot Small Burlap Bag.
Kaam Rahiir says 'In preparation for your journey down the path of Khati Sha, you will need to seek out the wolves of the moor. You will need to learn the behavior and abilities of this enemy. Once you have tracked and met these beasts, I will teach you how to best dispose of them in the future. Place two molars from the mouth of one of their pups in that bag and return to me. That will guarantee that you've come face to face with your foe.'
Sonic Wolf Molars drop off the Sonic Wolflings and the Sonic Pups in Hollowshade Moor. Combine two molars in the bag to craft a Small Bag of Teeth, and bring this back to Kaam Rahiir.
Kaam Rahiir says 'Excellent, the spirits have returned you to me with your tail intact! The foe that you encountered was a young creature. Their elders are much less likely to allow your passage. The packs of wolves that roam the moor have proven to be quite a problem for our scouts. I will assist you in learning a method that will allow you to build and assist others in building a weapon that bites at the very spirit of those beasts. Take these claw mounts and use them in conjunction with the tomes that Qua sells. You'll need stretching dowels to treat the lashings. Jhimis usually keeps them behind the counter of his shop. Get a set from him and read through those tomes. Return to me with your new claws and your apprentice's cloak when you have completed the task.'
Your faction standing with Khati Sha got better.
You gain experience!!
You receive Reinforced Claw Mounts. Now you must craft your Sonic Wolf Bane weapon. Crafting these weapons requires the cooperation of all of the five Vah Shir classes: Bard, Beastlord, Rogue, Shaman, and Warrior. Each supplies a component that may only be crafted by Vah Shir of that class, and the components are combined to produce class-specific sonic bane weapons.
The tomes that Kaam Rahiir spoke of are available for purchase from Arms Historian Qua, along with the Weapon Assembly Kit you will use to combine the components. Arms Historian Qua is located at -180, +50. The tomes outline each step of the combines required for this part of the quest, and read as follows:
Wolf Bane Lore: Volume I
A sweeping scourge inhabits the marshlands, thickets, and forests. These beasts are best described as wolves, but their intelligence and uncanny ability to move through any form of darkness proves that they are a distinctively different threat.
Our Dar Khura have found that these beasts display none of the bond that a Dar Khura and a true wolf would traditionally share. Puzzled by this, our most skilled alchemists studied every facet of these creatures and their metabolism. While these studies failed in finding a way to establish a relationship with these beasts, they did find a means of dealing with them.
That is why the formula in this book is so important to every citizen of Shar Vahl. It describes the methods that should be used to build a weapon that will most effectively ward off these creatures. It is the duty of each of you to defend our home from these beasts.
You can make a sonic wolf bane weapon with the following materials:
Reactive Sealant Soak
Sonic Wolf Bane
Toughened Sinew Lashings
Ceramic Dagger Sleeve*
Porous Dagger Blade*
*The exception to this is the Khati Sha. Their claws act as weapons and use Porous Claws and a Ceramic Claw Sleeve Set instead of these items.
Wolf Bane Lore: Volume II --Building the Weapon, Part I
Each sect is responsible for creating the portion of these weapons that the are most familiar with. The Taruun, Khati Sha, and Dar Khura components are described in the following pages. The Jharin and Khala Dun portions of the weapon and the finishing process are described in Volume III.
The Taruun are charged with creating the Sonic Wolf Bane poison that acts as the basis for these items' power. Sonic Wolf Bane Poison is made from: salass moss, tortoise saliva, sonic wolf blood, and poison dart felt from the dart of a grunt shaman. All of these items are reduced to a powdery paste with a special acrylia mortar and pestle. The resulting substance is baked in a poison vial, filled with water.
The Khati Sha are responsible for stretching and braiding the toughened sinew lashings that securely bind the weapons. The toughened sinew lashings are made from owlbear and sonic wolf tendons. These tendons are stretched on a special set of dowels that fits into any sewing kit. While you have the sinew stretched in the kit, treat it with kelp salts and fish oil soaked rags.
The Dar Khura have devised a formula that reacts to the porous metal from which the blades are made and seals in the power of the Taruun poison. This reactive soaking solution is made from blackened salt crystals, a sonic wolf brain, crystallized Ygri root, and digested night palm. These things are all brewed together in water and strained through a ceremonial metal strainer.
The rest of the components and the sects that are responsible for them are described in the next volume of this series.
Wolf Bane Lore: Volume III --Building the Weapon, Part II
The Jharin must use their knowledge of pottery to create the ceramic sleeves that assist in carrying the poison into the blades while helping to keep the blades affixed to their mounts. These sleeves are made from special clay. This clay is made from ashes that remain after a grimling shaman has performed some dark ritual, a flask of water, a vial of owlbear bile, some sonic wolf blood, and some black silt clay.
Sketches for these items are available from other members of the sect and the finished product should be fired on a quality firing sheet.
The Khala Dun have the honor of crafting the actual blades that are used in these weapons. The blades are made from chunks of porous ore. This ore is smelted with white sand from the marshlands near the grunt camps, powered wolf claws, and sonic wolf blood. There are specialized molds for these items.
Contructing the weapon -
The sect specific hilt, shaft, or bindings should be combined in a weapon assembly kit with all of the finshed sect specific items.
These kits simplify things, but it is still a process that every citizen should learn.
Each citizen will need to work with a member from each of the other sects in order to complete the weapon.
May the spirits guide you.
Vah Shir beastlords contribute Toughened Sinew Lashings, which are made through Tailoring and which are trivial at 135.
Start by finding Jhimis Khadwi at +300, -370.
You say, 'Hail, Jhimis Khadwi'
Jhimis Khadwi says 'Welcome to my store! How may I help you?'
You say, 'What about stretching dowels?'
Jhimis Khadwi says 'Aye, I have a few left, but they are a big seller right now and I don't know when I'm going to get more in stock. Perhaps we can barter for a set. If you can gather two small owlbear claws and show me your apprentice's cloak, I'll guess that I can justify given you a set of dowels. I'll also be able to make some earrings for my girlfriend. I'm sure she'll love that!'
The Small Owlbear Claws drop off Owlbear Cubs in Hollowshade Moor. Give two owlbear claws and your cloak to Jhimis.
Jhimis Khadwi says 'These claws are very nice! Don't you think they will make splendid earrings? Of course you do! Well, she'd better like them after all of the trouble I had to go through to get them. Here are your dowels. If you need more, I'll have a new crate of them tomorrow. Take care and enjoy... Thank you for shopping with Jhimis!'
He will return your cloak, and give you Sinew Stretching Dowels.
In a sewing kit or loom, combine the Sinew Stretching Dowels with:
Now that you have your lashings, combine them with your claw mounts and the four items provided by the other Vah Shir classes (Ceramic Claw Sleeve Set from bards, Sonic Wolf Bane poison from rogues, Reactive Sealant Soak from shaman, Porous Claw Set from warriors) in the Weapon Assembly Kit purchased from Arms Historian Qua at -180, 50. You craft two Sonic Wolf Bane Claws, one for PRIMARY and one for SECONDARY.
Take your new Sonic Wolf Bane Claws to Kaam Rahiir. Give him your claws and your Apprentice Cloak.
Kaam Raniir says 'These claws are very well crafted! Your work is very impressive. Please take them to Ahom Guzhin. He is an old friend of mine. The sonic wolf claws were the result of some of his original studies in the moor. He has dedicated his life to studying creatures of the moor and can almost always be found there. Be careful when you go looking for him. You've done well here, but don't get careless. Good journeys.'
Your faction standing with Khati Sha got better.
You gain experience!!
He will give you back your claws along with your new Cloak of the Khati Sha Journeyman.
