+250 Thunder Bluff
It will be important to study both plant and animal life impacted by the oases and the unusual energies you've discovered. The Stagnant Oasis below us is home to a species of snapjaw turtles. Recently their population has exploded. Moreover, the once peaceful animals are growing aggressive, as I learned the hard way before trekking up here.
<Jerrik holds up a bandaged finger.>
I suspect they've been altered by the oases. Collect their shells and take them to Tonga at Crossroads for further study.
What else have you brought me?
Thank you, <name>. Studying the beasts of an area can tell much about the area itself. We shall see what tale these shells tell, and possibly unravel the mystery of what's happening in the barrens.
Please accept my gratitude for your aid... and perhaps you can use these coins. I find that I do not need them.
When you stand in the fissure at the bottom of the pool, it gives you unlimited underwater breathing. This can be handy when hunting turtles.
- Tonga Runetotem says: Hm...
- Tonga Runetotem says: Strange. Very strange...
- Tonga Runetotem says: <name>. These shells tell me much, but I fear many more questions are now raised...
- Tonga Runetotem says: I will send these to Thunder Bluff to confirm my findings. I may need your assistance again soon, friend.
