Journal Entry
Bring Synnolian Tunifus five units of muck for cure common disease potion. A farmer in Gnisis, Abishpulu Shand, has a muckspunge plant right near his house, and Chaplain Ogrul at Fort Darius has cut a deal with Shand to gather muck there for free. While I'm in the West Gash, look in on Chaplain Ogrul, give him four Restore Health potions, and ask him if he'll teach me a few tricks.

I told Synnolian Tunifus I would not be able to deliver the five units of muck he asked for. He was disappointed, and told me to take a day to reflect on my shortcomings, and attempt to amend them before I approach him again for a lay healer mission.
