'This here's an unusual job i'd say. One of my clients has a hankering for rare and unusual things y'see.

'Want's the scale of an old northern ice-worm of all things, so I asked my fellows in Forochel to send word is they've seen the like. Never expected to hear back, but it turns out that Lossoth lore speaks of such a beast that lairs along the northern slopes of some glacier.

'That's quite a trek and no mistake, but I can offer substantial sum for yer trouble if you succeed.'
