Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: mission
Tereban: I have four sons which are very dear to me. Though they were born on the same day and even in the same hour, they took quite different paths in life. ...
Tereban: Each of them chose a different vocation, one will become a knight, one a sorcerer, one a druid, and the other a paladin. In a few weeks they will reach adulthood and I am holding a birthday party for them. ...
Tereban: It should become a day to remember and so I want to give them something special as a present. I searched the land for the finest craftsmen so they could create suitable presents for my sons. ...
Tereban: But something of fine craftsmanship will just not cut it. So I asked them what they would need to create something special. They all came up with lists of rare and expensive items necessary for the task ahead. ...
Tereban: I spent a small fortune to buy most of the materials but in the end the key components are that rare that they cannot be simply bought somewhere. ...
Tereban: As far as I understood it, the places where you can get these items are quite dangerous and so it would take some adventurer to get them. ...
Tereban: That would be your mission if you are interested. Uhm, so are you interested?
Player: yes
Tereban: I am relieved someone as capable as you will handle the task. Well, I need the parts of a sorcerer's robe, a paladin's bow, a knight's shield, and a druid's wand.
Player: bye
Tereban: Farewell.

The Magic Bow - Sinew

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: strong sinew
Tereban: Do you have the required sinew?
Player: yes
Tereban: Ah, not only did you bring some sinew to me, you also made the world a safer place by killing Heoni.

The Magic Bow - Wood

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: exquisite wood
Tereban: Could you find the wood we were talking about?
Player: yes
Tereban: Thank you. I feel somewhat embarrassed to put you into such a danger for some birthday present but I am sure you can handle it.

The Magic Robe - Cloth

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: spectral cloth
Tereban: Could you find the cloth I am looking for?
Player: yes
Tereban: It looks a bit scary but I guess sorcerers might even find that appealing. Thank you very much.

The Magic Robe - Silk

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: exquisite silk
Tereban: So you've found the silk that I need?
Player: yes
Tereban: Great. I better don't think about how big a spider has to be to produce such strands of silk.

The Magic Wand - Crystal

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: magic crystal
Tereban: Did you find the required crystal?
Player: yes
Tereban: Oh look at the colours and sparkles. This crystal is truly remarkable, thank you.

The Magic Rod - Root

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: mystic root
Tereban: Could you find the root which we are looking for?
Player: yes
Tereban: You are admirably determined in fulfilling your task. I will make sure that my sons appreciate what you did for their presents.

The Magic Shield - Iron

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: Old iron
Tereban: Have you found the iron that we need for the present?
Player: yes
Tereban: I wish there'd an easier way to get that iron but those dwarfs are so stubborn. However, now we got what we need.

The Magic Shield - Scale

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: flexible dragon scale
Tereban: Could you get Glitterscale's scales yet?
Player: yes
Tereban: These scales must have belonged to a fearsome beast. I envy you for your bravery.

Reporting about your mission

Player: hi
Tereban: Greetings, friend.
Player: mission
Tereban: I'm so glad I finally have all the parts for the presents. Your reward is my eternal gratitude. Well, that and some gold of course. ...
Tereban: Take this sachet over there, I wrapped the coins into this old cape I had still lying around here from a barter with a stranger, it is of no use for me anyway. Farewell and thank you once again.
