The Nameless One can ask Mebbeth to teach him magic. This starts a long chain of quests that should be done for the experience, even if TNO won't remain a mage. When she asks why he wants to learn, TNO can answer in several ways (which increase Ravel's stats later in the game):
- "Because I may need it to solve the mystery of who I am" (Ravel wisdom +1)
- "Because I just want to know" (Ravel intelligence +1)
- "Because I need power" (Ravel wisdom +1 and intelligence +1)
In exchange for teaching TNO magic, she wants him to do some errands for her first.
The seed Edit
Mebbeth hands TNO a seed as a sample of the herbs she needs at the market. Speaking to the herb merchant in the Marketplace Area (X=1270 Y=1150) grants 500 XP. He has never seen a seed like this before, and says that TNO should find a gardener. If TNO has met Mourns-for-Trees, he will immediately think of him.
Mourns-for-Trees can be found in the Smoldering Corpse Area (X=2210 Y=570). He hasn't seen the like either, but says that maybe TNO can make it grow if he *cared* about it to growing. TNO can then focus on the seed and *will* it to grow, which grants 500 XP.
The barbed branches grow out of the seed wrap around TNO's wrist, and can't be wrenched off.
Then, TNO can return to Mebbeth and ask her to remove the branch. She says that TNO should remove it himself, by thinking it off. Doing so grants 500 XP.
Mebbeth then wants TNO to think the branch into a more orderly structure, a picture frame for instance. The reward for this depends on TNO's intelligence or wisdom:
- 12 or less WIS and INT: no XP at all.
- 13 to 15 INT: 500 XP
- 16+ INT: 750 XP
- 13 to 15 WIS: 500 XP
- 16+ WIS: 750 XP
Mebbeth's Wash Edit
Giscorl hands over Mebbeth's Wash, rewarding 500 XP. They have been starched so much that the rags are as stiff as bricks, and just as heavy.
Fetching Ink Edit
Now, Mebbeth wants TNO to fetch some ink for her.
Meir'am is also in the Marketplace (at X=1970 Y=1980), and she has the fish, but TNO needs a tankard to collect the ink with. A Battered Tankard can be bought cheaply from another merchant (X=1580 Y=1000). Meir'am will now fill the tankard with ink.
Giving Mebbeth the Ink-Filled Tankard grants 1000 XP.
Becoming a mage Edit
Finally, her tasks are over. She asks if TNO really wants to be a mage, and he can answer yes. With 14+ Intelligence or Wisdom, TNO has the opportunity to explain the purpose of all those errands. This grants another 2000 XP.
With 14+ Intelligence, TNO will immediately recognize the recipe she hands him as a reading test, with a lower Int stat, he can 'give up' and still recognize it. She is shocked that TNO can read the recipe so early on in his mage training.
From the picture frame, the rags, and the ink, she creates a page for TNO's spell book. She then explains the basics of the Art, spell memorization, etc. When she asks whether TNO has questions, he can say no, then ask her more questions.
She then asks how many times a mage has to memorize a spell if he wants to cast it twice. The answer is twice (since a mage needs to rest to regain the ability to cast the same spell again).
At the end of the questioning she will give TNO:
- Chaotic: Lying, saying TNO's name is Adahn.
- Evil: Saying the reason TNO wants to learn magic is because he needs power.
- Good, Lawful: Offering to help her with chores.
- Good: Thanking her for everything.
