Opening Dialog

Darhy, Assistant to Nuhmudira tells you, "Hello. I have been tasked by Nuhmudira to continue to collect Whispering Venom crystals. They aided in overcoming the threat of the ancient Olthoi Queen who resided within this lair. It is important to probe this lair lest the Queen should return here and defeat any Olthoi within it! Nuhmudira had determined there is an unknown force that seems to "drown out" mana and suppresses higher forms of magic. This force is particularly powerful in the proximity of this lair and prevents anyone from being portalled successfully there.

Darhy, Assistant to Nuhmudira tells you, "A very rare crystal, Whispering Venom crystal is required to nullify this effect- the wearing of a ring made from this crystal allows a successful journey through portal space to this lair. Alas, Nuhmudira did possess a supply of these crystals however they were stolen once from her warehouse, together with numerous other crystals. While the other crystal types are being replaced through the good efforts of Isparians, a supply of Whispering Venom crystal is lacking."

Darhy, Assistant to Nuhmudira tells you, "There is a mine at desert's edge, west of Khayyaban, which used to be a source of these crystals. It may be somewhat depleted but it is our only hope. Please try to find some and return as soon as you are able!"
Handing in Toad's Pickaxe to Hiyp the Toad

You give Hiyp the Toad Hiyp the Toad's pickaxe

Hiyp The Toad looks at you with a sodden expression

Hiyp the Toad tells you, "Hey, that's my best pickaxe! I must have left it down in the, ummm, where was that... oh yeah there was that mine, I was tryin' to get some of those crystals them's in Zaikhal wanted. Maybe it'll help with the bugs, maybe not. Well, there's nothing in that mine, I'll tell ya. So I said to myself, forget it, go have a drink. You trying to get some too? Hmmm, I just may know someone who can get some. There's a jeweler, name of Djusufa bint Huqis, she's in Zaikhal. I know her a while, she told me something interesting. One night a woman came to her and handed her a strange crystal, wondered if she knew what it was good for. The jeweler, she didn't know, never seen one like that before. She said she'd have to ask around, maybe check with one of Nuhmudira's people. Well, this woman gets all nervous and just leaves. Anyway, that's all I know. Go see Djusufa bint Huqis."
Djusufa bint Huqis the Jeweler

Djusufa bint Huqis the Jeweler tells you, "So, Hiyp told you to talk to me about Whispering Venom crystal. Yes, that is correct, it was a dark and stormy night when this woman came banging on my shop door even though I had just closed. She seemed to be rather nervous but needed to know about a crystal, which she handed to me. She wanted to understand what it may be used for. I examined it carefully for I had never seen one like it before. It's purpose or potential eluded me and I said to her that I would have to inquire with one of the scholars working with Nuhmudira about it. She became very agitated then and ran out the door. I tried to go after her to return the crystal but she was gone.

Djusufa bint Huqis the Jeweler tells you, "I remembered later that I had seen her about town and that she was in fact one of Nuhmudira's students. Not wanting to cause trouble for her I inquired discreetly and found out she was originally from somewhere northeast of Samsur. Eventually I brought the crystal to one of Nuhmudira's other students and he said he believed it was Whispering Venom crystal. I allowed him to keep it and that was that. So, I do not have the crystal now. Had I known so many would be seeking such crystal these days I might have made a tidy sum selling it!"
Cydna Wren

Cydna Wren tells you, "What do you want from me? Oh ... the crystal. That jeweler must have led you to me. Ah well, there is no hiding ... nor does it matter who I put my trust in. Experience has taught me that lesson. If you keep my location here a secret, I will tell you where some of those crystals may be found. Take this small journal. I wrote it in case ... something happened to me."

Cydna Wren gives you Cydna Wren's Journal.
Speaking to Cydna Wren again
