Troves and Trickery
Troves and Trickery are quests available during the Harvest Festival with the aim of provoking certain NPCs using appropriate emotes on them. The rewards for these quests include festival mask tokens which are different for each location. For instance, a reward for Troves and Trickery -- Thorin's Hall is a Dwarf Mask Token which can be turned in for a Bucket Festival Mask.
Each quest has a timer during which the player must find each of the four NPCs in any order and perform the correct emote while selecting that NPC. The player does not need to be near the NPC nor does he need to dismount except when using certain emotes such as /dance. After finding each NPC, return to the quest giver within the time limit to receive a reward.
Labourer (In the north-western part of the tunnel leading to Thorin's Hall Inn) It certainly gets very dull down here, working as much as I do, with only the sound of water and chattering dwarves to distract me. If only there was something else.
- Emote: whistle
Townsperson (In the central hall, near Jolfur, the Hunter trainer in Hall of Kings) I am terribly sad today. I am training to be a Guard of Thorin's Hall, but I am hopeless with a bow. So hopeless, in fact, that I shot on of Dwalin's finest kegs on the other side of the room instead of the very target before me. All the dwarves who saw made fun of me so....
- Emote: mock
Townsperson (in The Maker's Hall near Nagli the Novice Woodworker) I am so thirsty, <player name>, and my friend here will not let me drink of this plentiful store of ale behind him. I would give anything for just a sip. Just a little taste!
- Emote: drink
Townsperson (in The Forging Hall) I don't do this work because I particularly like to work. I do this work because a dwarf cannot be respected without a good, stout, strong pair of arms. What do you think of these great limbs of mine, wanderer?
- Emote: flex
- Emote: whippitydo
Townperson (in Beggar's Alley in Bree) I dance all day! If I ever stop, my legs will turn to trees, so I dance, dance, dance all day, every day! What can a man do with two trees for legs? They tell me I'm mad, but they will not think so when their legs turn to trees.
- Emote: crazy
Townperson (near the Bree-town Auction Hall) I spent all my week's pay in the Auction Hall, I did. You should lend me some money. A fine traveler like yourself must have some money, and I shall turn it into a handsome profit for you. What do you say to that: yes or no?
- Emote: no
- Emote: scold
Townperson (in a gazebo just south-west of the stable in Hobbiton )
I'm so stuffed, I don't know what to do! I've had five meals in a row, and a fair amount to drink as well. I'd love to eat more, but I'm not sure there's room. What should I do?
- Emote: burp
Townperson (on a dock just east of the Bywater Bridge in Hobbiton )
I'd better catch a fish soon. I've been here all day, and I haven't seen so much as a fin! I would give anything to see a fish right now -- any fish at all. I'm about to lose my temper!
- Emote: tantrum
Farmer (near the Bywater Bridge in Hobbiton )
Don't you just hate when you see a creeping, crawling thing, and then suddenly your skin crawls for the next hour? Why, just that very thing happened to me! I saw a spider, and now I am shuddering all over!
- Emote: shiver
- Emote: pick (Pick out a wedgie)
Townperson (at the tower furthest south-east in Duillond What do you see out yonder? I stand here often, and watch.
- Emote: look
Guardsman (on the most eastern platform in Duillond Mae govannen! You look to be an accomplished <class name>. I can tell by your eyes that you have seen many a battle, like myself. I greet you, and give salute to your great valour. We warriors are as kin!
- Emote: hail
Townperson (near the ovens in the crafting area of Duillond Goodness me, you startled me! I was simply, ah, standing guard over this delightful display. I only sampled it to ensure that it was sufficiently delicious, which it is. It was just a taste! You will not tell anyone, will you?
- Emote: eat
Musician (just north-east of the stable in Duillond How I love to gather for festivities! Music can be so inspiring, <player name>; do you not agree? We are missing something, though, if this is to be a true party...."
- Emote: dance *Note - you must be dismounted to dance!
