Dialogue[edit | edit source]
After turning in first materials:
Cashmere is a highly sought after material for a reason. Lighter, softer and warmer than a sheep's wool, it's something you have to feel to understand.
As luck would have it, it's also your next order. Bring me six bolts of [Cashmere] cloth.
After turning in second materials:
In some kingdoms, the wearing of samite is restricted to royalty or the noble class. It's also quite common in holy rituals, no doubt why The Cleric has placed this request.
Working with the golden wire will be a new and difficult challenge. When you have the samite, return to me.
After turning in third materials:
I have one last task for you, an order for a [Cashmere Carpet]. It's for the stronghold's ever forgetful ranger. The request was anonymous, suffice to say someone with deep pockets wishes to give our elven friend a gift.
A carpet's a bit of a different beast than a robe or a bolt of fabric. First you'll need to weave a backing out of [Jute], a plant common in the south—The Traveling Merchant should have some for sale. From there you'll want to sew loops of yarn to the backing, it sounds simple, but some artists devote their lives to the craft.
Deliver the finished carpet directly to The Ranger. Oh, and see if he has any idea why someone would order him such an extravagant carpet. I admit, I'm a little curious.
After delivering Cashmere Carpet to the Ranger:
A cashmere carpet?
It's just like the one my parents had. I always enjoyed the way it felt on my feet.
It was lost when I had to flee my home.
I don't know who asked you to make this, or how they knew about the carpet... But give them my thanks. It's nice to have something that reminds me of my parents.
Completion[edit | edit source]
You have done well to relay my every lesson to your artisans, whether you think of yourself as such, you are indeed the master of a trade guild.
I've taken the liberty of having a new spinning wheel made, and a loommaster's garments to boot. The spinning wheel should serve your tailors better than that old hand-me-down I gave you earlier, and if you're going to lead a tailor's guild, you ought to look the part.
You've learned everything I have to teach, and the harpy hasn't come around to bother me since the start. It's been an honor.
