OOC Info Desnind Odd Jobs, Bounties & Rumours

Known as the City in the Trees, Desnind is a town bustling in its own way. The locals follow odd customs, and the visitors are never quite sure if they're visiting the same city as they were last time. It's home to the Immortal of Life, Moseke, as well as most of the Sev'ryn.

Desnind Odd Jobs, Bounties & Rumours


In this thread I'm going to record all currently available odd jobs, bounties and rumours for chasing. They will have a post each and I will keep this thread updated in a "rolling programme" manner (in other words, one gets taken, I replace it).

Rules
As a community, these rules are meant to promote thoughtful player interaction. Please respect them. If you have an issue / suggestion regarding these, please let me know!
  • No more than 2 items from this thread may be claimed at any time.
  • The way it works is: You post to claim the item. I edit to say "approved" and I edit the post in question. That "holds" the item for you for one week
  • Within one week from the day I edit your claim to "approved" you must post again with a link to the thread. Anyone who claims an item and doesn't start it within a week will have their claim negated.
  • One you've provided a link - I will edit the original item list again, to include the link. I will then delete your posts, to keep this thread clear.
  • When you have completed the thread - please post here again to let me know - I'll edit the listing to move your item to the "Completed" section. Then, you're good to claim another.

Odd Jobs
 ! Message from: Francine
"It's my father's birth-trial soon and I want to make him a gift but I have no skills in anything crafty or creative. I'm hoping someone will help me, maybe teach me!"

Modnote: This could be a straightforward thread where you teach someone - or you could make it an exchange of skills - or something entirely else.
 ! Message from: Will
"I know how this sounds, but I'm sure, totally sure that I'm haunted. Weird things keep happening to me, and in the corner of my eye... please help!"

Modnote: Is it a ghost? Is it paranoia? Might be something else entirely.
 ! Message from: Fol'ika
"I need to do some construction work, but I'm lacking materials and skills. I need someone to gather skins and wood and then make a playhouse for my children. Will pay what I can!"

Modnote: You could focus on one aspect of this - the gathering, the hunting, the building - or you could cover all of it!
 ! Message from: Kriina
"I'm going to be traveling soon and I need to have some clothes made - I hear that the weather is awful further north, so I'd like a thick fur lined cloak. I don't have much money, but could provide some training?"

Modnote: You could use this as a chance to develop a new fauna for Desnind, then hunt it and turn it into a cloak!
 ! Message from: Orsoni
"My aunt died and I've been left her bee farm. I have no idea what to do - please help. You can choose something from her estate as payment"

Modnote: Simply help out, and choose an item / curio (an item available to individuals no higher than Tier 7, usually) - or maybe the item you choose is haunted. Maybe the bee farm is.

 ! Message from: Setri
"My house has been over run by rats! We're infested! I can't go back there, please help me!"

Modnote: What's causing the rats? Up to you - is there something else going on here?

Completed by Rakvald: here
 ! Message from: Shotoki
"I need help with my garden! It's growing wild and there are some really strange looking plants that I don't recognise. Ideally, I'd like to build a kitchen garden with raised beds and stuff. Will pay for the help! Thank you!!"

Modnote: Why not use this as an opportunity to develop some unusual Flora for Desnind? Good chance for skill building at gardening or construction, maybe!
