Gerael Woodone may be found at -180, -395.

You say, 'Hail, Gerael Woodone'

Gerael Woodone says 'It is good to meet you, ______. You, my friend, are an adventurer. The rugged look of you testifies to that. Let me know if you plan to adventure in the Plains of Karana. I have need of a person such as yourself to [deliver a flask].'

You say, 'I will deliver a flask.'

Gerael Woodone says 'That is splendid! I thought I would have to take the long journey to the western Plains of Karana myself. Here you are, my friend. Take this flask of nitrates to a woman named Linaya Sowlin. It will help her crops grow stronger. You will find her farm alongside the road to Highpass Hold. She should pay you well for the delivery. Farewell.'

You receive a Flask of Nitrates. Linaya Sowlin may be found at -3745, -7655 in Western Karana, in a farmhouse. Give her the flask.

Linaya Sowlin says 'Oh thank Tunare you showed up when you did. I was at a nearby merchant house when a fellow dropped a [note] and I picked it up and read it. It talked of the [Unkempt Druids] and before I could read on, the man swiped it from my hands. I ran for dear life, for surely he would kill me for reading the note. I think I lost him in the woods but I am not sure. Please stay with me a while to be sure.'

You gain experience!!

You say, 'What note?'

Linaya Sowlin says 'The note spoke of the [Unkempt Druids]. I did not get a chance to read it all, only a glimpse. Perhaps the man still has the note. Too bad. I am sure Gerael Woodone of the druids of Surefall Glade should look at it.'

You say, 'What Unkempt Druids?'

Linaya Sowlin says 'The Unkempt Druids are a crazed group of druids and rangers. I learned of them when I was in the Jaggedpine. They are a secret group and aim to keep it that way. They would kill anyone who learned of their whereabouts.'

Draze Slashyn spawns outside:

Draze Slashyn shouts 'Come out of that house, Linaya Sowlin!! I am waiting! It is time for you to die!'
Draze Slashyn says 'I shall chop you down as your people chopped down the beauty of the forests!!'
This article is missing information. Please expand the content.

Need fight info for Draze Slashyn. On his death:

You have slain Draze Slashyn!

Draze Slashyn's corpse says 'Your act of murder will not go unnoticed by the Unkempt Druids or nature itself!!'

The note identifies as "Contract on Gash," and reads:

To all Unkempt Druids, Jale Phlintoes calls upon you to seek out the Surefall Ambassador to Qeynos. His name is Gash Flockwalker. Reward upon delivery of his head. Long live the green!!

Give the note to Gerael Woodone.

Gerael Woodone says 'Oh my!! Our Qeynos Ambassador, Gash, is in danger. Please take the note over to Captain Tillin of the Qeynos Guard then find Gash and inform him [they are trying to kill him]. Go!!'

You gain experience!!

You receive a different version of A Tattered Cloth Note back, which identifies as "Returned Contract on Gash," and which reads the same as the first note.

You say, 'Who is Jale Phlintoes?'

Gerael Woodone says 'Jale Phlintoes was trained in the ways of the Jaggedpine Treefolk since his birth. He was only eight when his parents were killed by poachers. Young Jale would have had his throat slit also if he were not off fishing at the lake. Unfortunate. The now orphaned Jale was brought up by us druids. After many conflicts with our council, he ran off to start his own sect somewhere in the nearby lands. For his terrorist activities his head now brings a high price.'

You say, 'Who are the Unkempt Druids?'

Gerael Woodone says 'The Unkempt Druids are a radical splinter group of druids. Their beliefs have been contorted by the mad druid [Jale Phlintoes]. It is he who engineers and coordinates the druids' transgressions. From setting lumbermills aflame to murdering any man who dares to wear a bearhide. They must be stopped!! Citizens must learn to understand Tunare's will, not fear it.'

Captain Tillin may be found in South Qeynos on the far side of the arena, at +60, -510. Give him the note.

Captain Tillin says 'So, an assassin has been sent to Qeynos! I shall have my guards keep an eye out for any suspicious looking visitors. As for you... you should speak with the Surefall Glade ambassador. Ambassador Gash is staying at the Lion's Mane Inn here in South Qeynos. Inform him that [an assassin has been sent to kill] him. Do not let the assassin near him!'

You gain experience!!

Raffel Minnmorn may be found against the wall outside the northwest edge of the Lion's Mane Inn at +445, -35, you'll see this:

Raffel Minnmorn says 'Pardon me. Have you seen a man named Gash Flockwalker? He hails from Surefall Glade.'
Tasya Huntlan says 'Yes. He is staying here at the Lion's Mane Inn, but it is against regulations to give out room numbers. I can tell you that he loves to see the sun rise over the ocean.'

You say, 'Hail, Raffel Minnmorn'

Raffel Minnmorn says 'Hello, friend. I am visiting from the plains. I hope to make a FORTUNE here in Qeynos.'

You say, 'Who is Gash Flockwalker?'

Raffel Minnmorn says 'Gash Flockwalker is a druid from Surefall Glade. I have a special delivery for him.'

You say, 'What special delivery?'

Raffel Minnmorn says 'I shall chop you down as your people chopped down the beauty of the forests!!'

He attacks, casting druid spells.

You have slain Raffel Minnmorn!

Raffel Minnmorn's corpse . Long live the green ..

Gash Flockwalker is inside the inn at +370, -85, inside a room. Go through the main entrance of the inn, turn right, and then left when you see Sissy Huntlan, General Supply vendor. Take another immediate left turn before you enter the hallway and you'll run into the merchant's front desk (Tasla Huntlan, general supply vendor). Take the hallway to your right until you see a wanted poster with a face on it. He is behind the door to the right of that poster (your right if you are looking at the poster).

Gash Flockwalker says 'Hey... he dropped something. You should most likely take it to Gerael Woodone in Surefall Glade. Tell me what it is.'

You say, 'He dropped a black wood chip.'

Gash Flockwalker says 'That is the mark of an Unkempt Druid. Long ago there was a tree in Norrath we called the Great Tunarbos. Legend says it spawned all the woodlands of Norrath. Many centuries ago, long before the Combine Era, the Great Tunarbos was burned to the ground by unknown means. The ancient rangers kept what little of the great tree they could find. To make it short, all Unkempt Druids now carry burned wood chips to represent the great tree. They are not real. Take any black wood chips to Gerael Woodone in Surefall Glade.'

You say, 'An assassin has been sent to kill you.'

Gash Flockwalker says 'What!!? Must be an Unkempt Druid Assassin nearby!! Find him and slay him. I am sure he stands to make a FORTUNE! I believe the assassin may be carrying some sort of [black wood chip].'

You say, 'What black wood chip?'

Gash Flockwalker says 'That is the mark of an Unkempt Druid. Long ago there was a tree in Norrath we called the Great Tunarbos. Legend says it spawned all the woodlands of Norrath. Many centuries ago, long before the Combine Era, the Great Tunarbos was burned to the ground by unknown means. The ancient rangers kept what little of the great tree they could find. To make it short, all Unkempt Druids now carry burned wood chips to represent the great tree. They are not real. Take any black wood chips to Gerael Woodone in Surefall Glade.'

Give the Black Wood Chip to Gerael Woodone.

Gerael Woodone says 'So the Unkempt Druids are alive and well. We shall keep a watchful eye out as should you. Take this for your bravery and defense of the Jaggedpine.'

You gain experience!!

You receive 2 gold from Gerael Woodone.
