Greeting to you, Master Jibril,
My name is Iian di Alduressa, son of Count Alain di Alduressa. Once, before we all came to Dereth, my father shared his knowledge of the smithing of armors with the Masters of your people. Now, I seek to do the same with you.
On this world, you and your peers create a special armor, reportedly crafted using an alloy made from the shards of animate crystals and living shadows. I humbly ask for your assistance in learning this process. Long have the Gharu'ndim prized the pursuit of knowledge and the value of teaching. I ask now only for the chance to learn.
As to any concerns you would rightfully have about my involvement and loyalties in the war between our peoples, rest assured that I will have no part in it. I seek only to advance our mutual craft.

- Iian di Alduressa tells you, "Greetings."
- Iian di Alduressa tells you, "If you have the time, I would like you to do a favor for me. I am seeking knowledge on the smithing of unusual armors in this world, and have heard tell of something called "Shadow Armor" that is made using crystal combined with steel. I would like to learn more of this method of armor creation."
- Iian di Alduressa tells you, "I have drafted a letter asking for assistance from a Gharu'ndim Master Armorer by the name of Jibril ibn Rashid, who resides near a Life Stone outside of Al-Jalima. Alas, my work here for the Knights keeps me from making such a long journey to deliver this letter myself."
- Iian di Alduressa tells you, "If you could deliver this letter for me, and bring back any response given to you, I'd be indebted to you for the kindness you have shown me."

- Jibril ibn Rashid tells you, "Hmmmm..."
- Jibril ibn Rashid tells you, "This is both a rare and risky opportunity. The skill of the Alduressa family is renowned through all of Ispar. And, historically, they have served only the royalty of Viamont. For one to be willing to act separate from Varicci is a rare thing indeed."
- Jibril ibn Rashid tells you, "Tell me about your meeting with this young Alduressa."
- You tell Jibril ibn Rashid about your discussion with Iian di Alduressa.
- Jibril ibn Rashid tells you, "Hmmm... It is a risk, but it is a worthy risk, and this young Alduressa seems genuine..."

- Jibril ibn Rashid tells you, "Here, take this book to him, and tell him about the note in the cover. Let us hope that we do not come to regret this."
- Jibril ibn Rashid gives you Tome on the Metallurgy and Crafting of Shadow Armors.
