    This task begins with Gurtrude the Spymaster who can be found at the Ak'Anon Strike Force camp near the zone-in of Fortress Mechanotus.

    You say, 'Hail, Gurtrude the Spymaster'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Shhh. . . A good spy knows to keep her voice low and quiet. Now, have you come here to assist me with my [work], or to [try to join] my gaggle of spies?'

    You say, 'Work?'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Well, it is my task to lead a fine group of spies. I can't tell you anything about them, but it is our duty to infiltrate the enemy's structures, disrupt their war effort and steal what secrets we can. Now, I readily admit that none of us on this detail were much for spying before the crash, but when it became obvious that we would not win this battle by strength of arms, I convinced many of the crew to work together as spies. They are even now infiltrating Meldrath's infrastructure. Though, we are spread a bit thin, and there is no support from the ground for our efforts. Perhaps you might be willing to do a few simple [tasks] for me?'

    You say, 'I'm willing to do some tasks'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Good! Obviously I'm risking the lives of my people by trusting you, but I have no choice. I won't be sending you to speak with our most important spies, however, since I really don't know you very well. Will you be handling this [alone] or with trusted [friends]?'

    You say, 'Alone'

    Gurtrude the Spymaster says 'Well, even these tasks are dangerous so be very careful, for our sake as well as yours.'

    You are offered four tasks, one of which is 'A Slave to Grind'.

    You have been assigned the task 'A Slave to the Grind'.

    Gurtrude has asked you to disrupt the slave drive that Meldrath has sustained. It's bad enough to have to fight against the steamwork soldiers, but being forced to shed the blood of her brothers and sisters is just too much for a gnome to bear.

    Kill 20 Shock Troopers 0/20 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Kill 10 Shock Reavers 0/10 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Kill 5 Shock Strikers 0/5 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Kill 2 Master Slavers 0/2 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Speak with Gertrude the Spymaster 0/1 (Fortress Mechanotus)

    Gurtrude is saddened but glad that the work has been carried out.

    12/19/2020 I don't think that there are any faction bonuses applying.
