A bad merchantEdit
Speak to Nails Newton outside The Pick and Lute pub in west Taverley. He explains that a greedy merchant, Rolo the Stout, is buying all the food in the area and selling it for extortionate prices that the refugees can't afford.
Nails has a forged letter authorising all the food in the storehouses to be released for free, but he needs Rolo's seal, which he keeps in a chest that never leaves his sight, to authenticate the letter. Rolo is known for ordering expensive pies, and Nails wants your help in preparing a pie that will make Rolo feel so ill that Rolo will then leave the chest and seal behind in his dash to be sick.
Go south then east across the bridge to find some dead trolls with fishing bait next to them. Take the fishing bait, then collect some wheat from the field south of that. Go north to the watermill and put the wheat and the bait in the hopper on the 1st floor[, operate the controls next to the hopper, and then go back down to the ground floor and empty the bin to get a pot of ]maggoty flour. There are two empty pots available in the watermill right next to the flour bin. Take the flour back to Nails and you will receive the maggoty pie shell from him.
Next, go north a short distance to the fishing spot and fish a raw crayfish. If you don't have a crayfish cage on your toolbelt, you can obtain one from Nicholas Angle, who is near the crayfish spot. Enter the flax field to the west, and you will bury and retrieve the crayfish automatically in a cutscene. Take the manky crayfish back to Nails.
Now he wants you to prepare a potato. You can get a free raw potato from Head Farmer Jones just north of the flax field, or if doing this quest as part of the tutorial dig up one of the potatoes you planted before. Take it to the small snow covered hunting area to the west of the flax field. Use it on a hole to get a stinking potato. Use the crayfish on the shell to make a Terrible pie (uncooked), then use the uncooked pie with the pub's oven to make Terrible pie. Then go back and talk to Nails.
Nails says that the pie smells so bad that the merchant will never eat it. However he has an idea. South of Nails or West of the mill, you will find Foppish Pierre, pickpocket him to get some expensive spices to disguise the smell of the pie and turn it into a mouth-watering pie. It may take several tries to get the expensive spices, as you may also receive 3 coins.
Take the pie to Rolo the Stout, upstairs of The Pick and Lute. He will eat the pie and immediately become ill. You will have a choice to listen to his puking or leave. After talking to Nails, go back upstairs and steal the seal from the chest. Take the seal to Nails, and he will use it to stamp the forged letter, which he tells you to take to Foppish Pierre. Pierre reads the letter and agrees to open the food store. Go back to Nails and tell him of your success.
