Quest Giver:

Welcome back. There's been some talk among the residents here, saying that you've been helping out some of those in need. Well, I have a need, and I'd like to request your help.

When we were driven out of Dayspring Mills, we left a lot of things behind. Many of the others here have been worried about personal items, heirlooms and the like, but my goal is to drive out those Harvestbane wretches and get us back in our homes. To do so, we need gunpowder. We'd been able to make some after we landed, and had stored it throughout the community in case of emergency. Easier for everyone to have a little on hand, rather than putting it all in one place.

If you're willing, I'd like you to recover some of that stored gunpowder. Once I know how much we'll have to work with, I can start planning on what needs to happen to retake the place. Oh, and while you're there, I wouldn't mind if you whittled down the numbers of the Harvestbane. It'll make both of our jobs easier.


Dayspring Mills is to the north, the large farming village. I'm certain you've seen it before, it's hard to miss. We'd just gotten windmills up before everything happened, so if you see those, you're in the right place.

It isn't always easy to ask others for assistance, and many of the others here are still dealing with their losses... they aren't yet angry enough to fight. I appreciate your help with this.


That pack looks heaver than it did when you left... can I assume you were successful in finding the Gunpowder? Perfect! Go ahead and set the horns down there...

Watch out for the torch! Those horns may be sealed, but all it takes is a spark, and we would've had a huge mess to clean up after the island spat us back out... plus, you know, rebuilding Magistrate Bond's ship.

This is promising, though... I didn't realize so much was left there. Perhaps, with this stock and some good fighters, we will be able to eventually retake the town. Thank you, this will be of great use to us.
