Zainab Camp

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak to the captain Turedus Talanian about Work.
  2. Travel to Zainab Camp.
  3. Speak to any female Ashlander here about Trade goods wanted.
  4. Return to Talanian.

Trade Mission to the Zainab[edit]

Speak to the captain of Aryon's guards, Turedus Talanian, in the Tower of Tel Vos to learn that he wants you to find out what the Zainab Ashlander tribe wants, in order to improve relations with them.

The Zainab Camp can be found a ways towards the southwest of the tower if you haven't been there before. Unfortunately, you won't find out much right away, partly because the Ashlanders are a proud people and rarely admit to wanting anything. The women can be a little more helpful in this respect, so speak to any female Ashlander using the topic trade goods wanted. A disposition of over 50 is required. You'll learn that they are in need of Cure Common Disease potions and Cure Blight Disease potions, as the Wise Women are unable to bottle magics that cure diseases.

Return to Talanian with the information to receive a 100 gold as well as an Amulet of Levitating, along with a good increase in Reputation and local Disposition.

1 In Tel Vos they say their new mage-lord Master Aryon has done a lot for Tel Vos, and they are very happy with him. But he is still having trouble with the nearby Zainab Ashland what goods the tribe would be interested in trading for. When I've determined what goods the tribe would be interested in, I'll report back to Turedus Talanian for my payment of 100 drakes.
13 The Zainab Ashlander trader Ashur-Dan said he could not think of any trade goods that the Zainab need.
15 The Zainab Ashlander trader Ashur-Dan said he could not think of any trade goods that the Zainab need. But he suggested I speak with the men and women of the tribe.
20 When I asked an Ashlander what trade goods the Zainab need, he said that the Zainab do not need the big buildings, furniture, fancy clothes and weapons of the settled peoples.
25 When I asked an Ashlander what trade goods the Zainab need, she mentioned one thing. Though the tribe's wise women were good healers, they could not make the bottled magics that cure common disease and blight disease, so the trader and all the Zainab had few of these things. Now I can report back to Turedus Talanian, and tell him that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods.
30 The Zainab Ashlander wise woman Sonummu Zabamat said that the tribe needs more Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions. The tribe's men travel long distances, hunting and herding, and when they catch diseases, they can't return to camp to be cured by the wise woman, but if they carry potions, the can cure themselves. Now I can report back to Turedus Talanian, and tell him that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods.
35 ☑Finishes quest I reported to Turedus Talanian that Cure Common Disease and Cure Blight Disease potions would be valuable trade goods for the Zainab Ashlanders. He paid me 100 drakes for my service. He said he'd tell Master Aryon how I'd handled the matter, and thought that he would be pleased.
