Thome the Scribe is a retired scribe and forger living in Bayan. His recent ex-wife Flora claims he loved his inkwell more than her and ruined many nice things of theirs with his ink.
Thome is willing to make a forged writ of protection after hearing the password "Last summer was rainy" (provided by Lewsam the Gravedigger) if the player can recover his special inkwell from the ruins of their burned down home on the savannah. Once in the players possession they can either have Thome proceed or Flora will approach claiming Thome’s forgery skills are not what they used to be as a recent client of his was caught and punished by the guards. In return for the inkwell she’ll reveal the smugglers path.
