Event collect (tango icon).png Collect data cores from tracking devices for Apprentice Vee (12)


Renown Heart empty (map icon).png Are you here to help me with my research? These skritt are far more aggressive than most, so be careful. That's likely why Dekkti wants us studying them. It's certainly an interesting phenomenon.
Talk more option tango.png Yes, interesting. Can I help?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png If you can't, you're wasting my time. I left out tracking devices for the skritt to find. The skritt take them because they're shiny, but they can be turned off when the skritt tinker with them. See where this is going?
Talk more option tango.png Anything else?
Renown Heart empty (map icon).png We're monitoring skritt reactions to various stimuli. You can provide that stimuli[sic]. Knock over their gears or "shiny things," or just fight them directly. They're abnormally hostile, so we won't miss any casualties.
Talk end option tango.png Wow. Noted. I'll see what I can do.
Talk end option tango.png Reactivate the tracking devices. Got it.
Talk end option tango.png This place sounds dangerous. I'm out.
Complete heart (map icon).png Thanks to your efforts, we've collected some pretty fascinating data. I'll be sure to include your name in the footnotes.
Karma.png Got any new gizmos?
(if Collect data cores from tracking devices for Apprentice Vee is occurring)
Talk more option tango.png Seems you're not the only active researcher right now.
No. Dekkti and Widd are building devices based on my research, but Vee takes my data to Widd's lab in Mabon. Not a glamorous job, but everyone's an apprentice at some point. He'd probably appreciate some help.
Talk end option tango.png Maybe I can give him a hand.
Talk end option tango.png Any time.
During the start of Wild Growth
I'll leave for now if Trahearne asks nicely, but if anything gets destroyed while I'm gone... Grr, I'll fry their fronds.
Talk end option tango.png I'm sure everything will be fine while you're gone.
