Ma'yad ibn Ibsar's Opening Dialog

Ma'yad ibn Ibsar tells you, "Hail, traveler. Have you encountered a man named Abmim ibn Ibsar? He is my brother, who foolishly listened to those who whisper of an unsafe freedom to be gained in the Direlands."

Ma'yad ibn Ibsar tells you, "We have not heard from him in several months, and begin to worry. If you bring me news of him, I would reward you as well as I may."

Ma'yad ibn Ibsar tells you, "The last we heard, he had finally accepted some honest work from Akyafi the Translator. Perhaps Akyafi, who resides upstairs, can tell you more."
Akyafi ibn Sumwar's Opening Dialog

Akyafi ibn Sumwar tells you, "I am a humble scholar from Zaikhal. Of late, we have heard of the unusually large number of Drudges in the hills around the Yaraq Cove."

Akyafi ibn Sumwar tells you, "They seem to gather near the ruin of the Empyrean port on the far side of the cove, where the Mad Star flickers. Perhaps you could investigate, and bring me back something which would explain their presence?"

Akyafi ibn Sumwar tells you, "I recently sent young Abmim to investigate, but he has not yet returned."

Akyafi ibn Sumwar tells you, "If you are having difficulty locating the Mad Star, you may buy directions from the barkeeper, Jubal. He's afraid of the Mad Star; ask him instead how to reach the Pillars of the Inner Sea.
