Serbule Hills

Through his inn, Durstin offers a small selection of breakfast meals, ingredients, and some common supplies.

Reward at [Comfortable].


Reward at [Friends].

Thanks. Hey, somebody left these potions in the bunkhouse a while back. Didn't pay their bar tab, so I confiscated 'em. You want 'em?


Reward at [Close Friends].

Thanks. You're singlehandedly keepin' the inn afloat! Let me give you a little something. Pity I sold all my wife's tapestries already. Oh, here. My wife swore by these when she was working in her garden.


Hang Outs

*Help Durstin prepare tomorrow's food (60 minutes)

Yep. Just scramble the eggs good. Now pepper 'em within an inch of their lives! Well, I guess technically they're already dead. 's just something the missus used to say. Anyway, thanks for your help.

What can I do for you today?

You mentioned needing an adventurer?

Yeah, I have some adventure for ya. Pays well too.

Times are hard so I've been trying to sell what I can. My friend Fitz has a buyer lined up for my wife's copy of 'Leeka and the Blade Trials'. It's just a dumb adventure novel, but it's a signed first edition. The author used to visit the inn in happier times and gave it to my wife as a gift. Trouble is, it was ripped to bits. I need you to get all the pieces back.

If it's all torn up, it doesn't sound like it'd be worth much...

Ah see, that's where it gets interesting. There's an elf in Verta who claims to have written it. But I knew the author...and she's a half human, not an elf. Hard to confuse the two! And this lying elf in Verta has lots of enemies. They're willing to pay a fortune for proof that he didn't write this book. It doesn't matter the book's condition because sages can test the ink or somethin'. But I need as much of the book as I can find.

So how did it get torn up?

[Durstin's eye twitches. He sighs.] This author was a close friend of Samantha's. Sam was very sick the last time this horn visited... sorry, I'm tryin' not to use that slur anymore. I mean this half-human. And she and I... look, I can't talk about this. And it's not important. What's important is that it's my fault.

I threatened to burn the book. You can judge me if you want, I don't care. It was the worst time of my life, watching Samantha die, and I made a lot of mistakes. I was just bluffing about burning it, honest, but her friends hid all the chapters to keep them from me.

Wow. Well, okay, how do I find the chapters?

I went through Sam's diary the other day to try and figure out who was involved in hiding it. Most of 'em have fled to safer places, but I'm hoping they left the chapters behind. I'll pay you in Councils for each chapter you find. [Click the 'favors' menu for more.]

I'll look into it.

When you've returned all six chapters to Durstin, he has one final special reward to show his gratitude.

You got all six chapters. Thank you. It means a lot to me.

I'll be honest: I doubt I'll make much money from selling this book -- and definitely not enough money to warrant all the work you went through! I'm actually doing it for Gaurana, the author of the book. She's... well, she deserves the credit for her work. Some fuckin' elf is saying he wrote all the Leeka stories, and it isn't right! This will help put things right. And then, hopefully I can put my past behind me.

Here. I found these when I was looking through my wife's stuff. Gaurana gave these to us as a gag gift. I guess they're a recipe from that novel or something. They taste like shit, but they never go bad, so I figured maybe you can use 'em. Thanks again.

  • You're welcome


Durstin is happy to train adventurers in the art of Cooking. However, it may be easier to learn some recipes from other teachers, as Durstin is rather particular about whom he shares his knowledge with.

What can I do for you today?

So where's all the tapestries, anyway?

The wife died, so I sold 'em. Never liked the damned things, they just collected dust and fleas. In fact I threw a lot of junk out. Makes for a roomier dinin' experience.

But why'd you keep the name?

You don't go changing the name of an establishment over something as minor as an interior-decor change! Anyways, mind your own business.

I'm sorry to upset you.

Good woman. Stubborn as a mule. She's how I ended up here, of all places. But that's a story for another time. Want something to eat?

What have you got?
