I have made a few minor edits (for faction reward increases) that were not in this version of the thread when we copied it roughly a year ago.  Once again, thanks to the original posters who provided the information we have reproduced here.  — Karella

Thestran Quests

Tursh & Rindol Field Area

Quest: Grazeel’s Peace Treaty
Starting NPC: Grazeel
Location: Tursh, behind the crafting barn
Task: Deliver a note for the kobold, then deliver the reply
Reward: Unlocked Work Orders from Grazeel
12 copper
+2 Gwartak Clan Artisans faction
1,000 Crafting Experience

Locate the kobold crouched behind the crafting barn and speak to him. It seems that he is a crafter himself and wants to be welcomed into the crafting area, but he keeps getting chased off. Agree to deliver a note for him, and you get a compass marker to a guardsman (???), very close by. Speak to him, and you receive grudging permission for the kobold to come and go. Return to the kobold, and in gratitude he teaches you an artificer recipe.

To obtain recipes you need 10 Gwartak Clan Artisans faction. Note: Apparently the grade of turn in WO’s adjusts faction (this is pre GU2), a turn in of a single A (out of a set) gave 3 faction, a turn in of a C grade gave 1 faction. There are only 2 WO’s. So I’d suggest doing all of the items of the sets to A to see if you can get the full 8 more faction you need without having to head off to do other WO’s to recycle his two WO’s.

Quest: Tursh Supplies
Starting NPC: Winifred Oaksan
Location: Tursh, in one of the upstairs rooms of the crafting barn.
Items Needed: T1 crafted items based on your craft.
Artificer: 4 Weighted Wood Grip, 3 Charlatan’s Basalt Stone Block, 3 Votary’s Weakened Wood Board, 4 Trilliant Cut Quartz Jewel
Blacksmith: 2 Weighted Metal Bandings, 3 Weighted Metal Ribbings, 5 Charlatan’s Copper Ingots, and 4 Drifter’s Copper Sheets.
Outfitter: 3 Rugged Leather Strappings, 3 Mangled Leather Bundle, 3 Mystic’s Cloth Jute Bolt, 2 Charlatan’s Mangled Leather Bundle
Reward: 1s; your choice of level 10 crafting tool based on your occupation: a refining tool with +2 Tool Effectiveness and +1 Shaping Tools or a complication tool with +3 Tool Effectiveness; your choice of level 8 artisan apparel: Tursh Workshirt, +4 Ingenuity, +14 Crafting Station Use or Tursh Workpants, +4 Ingenuity, +12 Crafting Utility Use.
+10 Tursh & Rindol Field Artisan, +5 Western Plains Citizen, +10 Thestran Watch

Note: Quest is repeatable

Quest: Gregan’s Demand
Starting NPC: Gregan Blacque
Location: Tursh, Upper Floor of Barley Harvest Inn.
Items Needed: 3 Weighted Metal Banding, 3 Weighted Wood Grip, 3 Rugged Leather Strapping, 1 Merchant’s Companion, 1 Copper Ore, 1 Worn Hammer (non-weapon), 3 Cleaner, 2 Weakened Timber

4000 Crafting xp @ lvl 15
+1 New Targonor Artisans

Task: Deliver a case full of crafting supplies to his sister in Bordinar’s Cleft crafting area
Reward: Blaque Cleaner; Blaque Oil; Black Artisan’s Brew; New Targonor Artisan Faction +3;
7,000 Crafting Experience

Quest: The Captain’s Old Sword
Starting NPC: Osmal Maradin
Location: Rindol Field (if you enter from the east, he’s off to your right a ways, uphill and along a path)
Prerequisite: 25 Tursh and Rindol Field Artisan Faction Artisan Level 12
Task: Repair the sword given to you (doable by all crafting classes).
Reward:Osmal’s Ring (Heroic): lv. 15 left finger, +8 Crafting Tool Use
1 silver
+50 Tursh and Rindol Field Artisans
+10 Thestran Artisans
12,500 Crafting Experience (@ level 15 & 24)

This quest is suggested and notable because it gives one of the few (thus far) pieces of jewelry useable by crafters, and is the prerequisite for a second such quest. The task is simple: take the sword given to you by Osmal and refurbish it., using your craft’s finishing station.

Since most people won’t have Rindol Field Artisan Faction going into this quest, you can gain some by performing Work Orders for a few individuals, such as Osmal himself, or Fest in the Tursh Inn. You can also gain more faction by grinding normal Work Orders within the Fisher’s Pen outpost, a short trip to the north of Tursh.

Note: I was told that before you get this quest you should talk to Fest in the Tursh Inn to get his Lucky Dice – I don’t know if this actually does have anything to do with the quest or not though, or if it’s just a red herring. So far, evidence learns toward the red herring suspicion.

Quest: The Fate of Captain Umbertroe
Starting NPC: Osmal Maradin
Location: Rindol Field
Requirements: Complete “The Captain’s Old Sword,” attain Crafter level 15 and 50 Tursh and Rindol Field Artisan Faction

Task: Discover the fate of Captain Kasey Umbertroe.

Talk to Osmal again about the much-admired Captain Umbertroe. She’s disappeared into parts unknown, and the people of the village (Osmal very much included) want to know of her whereabouts. The only suggestion that Osmal has to give you is that she first left for Renton Keep, and that you might try to pick up her trail there.

Go next to Renton Keep, and speak to Riley McLare, the Utility Vendor within the northeast tower. She gives you the idea of conferring with one of the Vulmane seers to find the halfling’s location, and sends you off to Dakhnarg to talk to Ghostclaw Ramur. She gives you an old skinning knife of Kasey’s to give to the Seer.

Before you go on this leg of the trip, make sure you have a rare item from your crafting class, as you’ll need it once you reach the town. The list of required items is:

Artficiers: Thorn Timber
Outfitters: Scraggy Hide
Blacksmiths: Nickel Ore

Note: If you have not done the “The Herbalist’s Equipment” quest in Halgarad, you can do this quest to obtain a choice of 3 T2 rares, so you can pick what you need for this quest along the way by doing “The Herbalist’s Equipment” quest in Halgarad.

Once in Dakhnarg, find Ghostclaw Ramur. Location is -20493, -52313, 18400 just past the crafting area and speak with her. She tells you that she can perform the task once you create a Seer’s Amulet for her to use, at which point she gives you the recipe. You can craft the item yourself, or use one crafted by another player. Be forewarned that this recipe is difficult: you now need a high quality item (A quality) to successfully make it, and a bad run of complications could make your rare item go *poof*.

Once you have an amulet speak to the seer, who takes the amulet and performs the ritual needed. She tells you of her vision: she sees Kasey Umbertroe in a land filled with sand and sun, ie: probably Qalia. The quest is complete at this point – you DO NOT have to track the halfling down in Qalia itself, at least not for this quest. (As it seems a bit of a cliffhanger, this may or may not be the end of the chain in the long run, but it is the end of this quest.) Return across Thestra to Osmal to collect your hard-earned reward.

Reward: Rindol’s Field Medal (Legendary): lv. 20 left ear, +13 Finishing Skills, Halfling Hero effect (+5 Problem Solving, +5 Reasoning, +5 Ingenuity, +5 Finesse); Recipe for Seer’s Amulet (gained during quest but not removed from the recipe book.)
