General Thoughts Regarding Quest

This is a side quest that spawns from the Library Book Quest which is why an astute reader may question the starting dialog with Rarnan Lapice as we never circle back around to the Testament of Vanear. The Library Book Quest progressiont kicks off our seeking out of Moodoro Finharn and interacting with his sister Nolusia Finharn.

You say, 'I am a cleric of Quellious.'

Rarnan Lapice says 'I have a small task for you then. Go to the city library and ask the librarian for the book 'The Testament of Vanear'. I shall require it for further studies. Do not return empty-handed or you shall know my rage.'

He is an Erudite, but I believe he was executed for some crime. Now the book is lost forever. You should speak with Tol Nicelot. He used to know Moodoro. Tol is most likely upstairs.'

Not even his sister [Nolusia] could get the charge dropped. There have been some who say he escaped execution and lives in Qeynos. That is insane babbling.'

You say, 'What Vasty Deep?'

Nolusia Finharn says 'The Vasty Deep waters are said to be magical. Of course this is rumor, but it does not stop magic users from all over Norrath from trying to obtain some of the waters.'

You say, 'What business?'

Nolusia Finharn says 'Flynn had talked Moodoro into delivering the waters to him in Qeynos. Eventually Moodoro was caught. He was sentenced to death, but a few spells from yours truly helped him escape death by replacing him with a [doppelganger].'

You say, 'What doppelganger?'

Nolusia Finharn says 'The doppelganger's innards were pulled out its esophagus and Moodoro went to Qeynos to start a new life. Unfortunately, he found Flynn there also. Now they have started up again somehow! My guildmaster is aware of this and fears what the High Council will do to our guild when they find this out. Will you [help] me?'

You say, 'Yes, I will help.'

Nolusia Finharn says 'Find out how they get the water. Get me the water and I shall put a poison on the seal of the container. Then you carefully carry the container back to Flynn, not to my brother, and we shall put an end to this.'

Helia BlueHawk says 'Pipe down, Phloatin! Treat the new clientele with respect.'

You say, 'What about Vasty Deep Water?'
