Bestowal dialogue

A true Brawler knows the importance of a strong defence! Value might and vitality, but value too your appearance while you fight, for anything can be turned to your advantage mid-brawl: even the flashing glint of jewelry might distract your foe at an inopportune moment!

'I can fashion you suitable jewelry for this purpose, but I will need a number of materials from you: not only for the crafting, but also to prove that you are deserving of it! It is a tradition among Brawlers, my friend, and I would not wish to break it! It is our foes who will break, after all!

'A Dourhand brigand named Frostulf Splitknuckle fancies himself a Brawler, and he has issued an open challenge to folk in the Wildwood: he claims he will defeat any opponent in single combat, and without spilling a drop of his beer! Find him outside the western gate of Cotfast and answer his challenge. Bring me his tankard and prove you are a worthy Brawler, <name>.

'So too will I require the boots of brigands here in the Wildwood. Only the leather of such boots will serve, so bring them to me without complaint.'
