Jump to: navigation, search

An NPC found at the Fisherman's Quay in Solhaven.


Looking quite pale and rather skinny, the man is a middle-aged human with slicked back red hair that ends in two alternating braids. His sharp hawk-nose and bushy eyebrows give him an almost rat-like look, and his constantly shifting eyes only add to the illusion.


You can rent a boat from this NPC in order to go lobster fishing.

If you ask him about BOATs, you'll get: The man looks at you and says, "So, ya wanna rent a boat, eh? Well, it's 500 silvers and ya can stay out as long as ya want. Ya can drop yer lobstah cages 'round dere. Jest ASK me about boats agin if ya wanna rent one."

If you ask him about LOBSTERS you'll get: The man says, "Lobstahs is good eatin, Dundren buys his stuff 'ere, ya know." He nods in a proud manner, then continues, "Ya jest find a pot ta cook 'em in, usually deres one 'round 'ere somewheres. Just put da lobstah innit and watch 'em turn red! If ya wanna buy a cage, ASK me about 'em, and if ya wanna rent a boat, ya can ASK me about boats too!"

If you ask him about CAGES you'll get: The man says, "Cages? Dats how ya catch lobstahs, jest DROP it when yer inna boat. Then ya jest wait a while, and ya might getta catch. Real easy, ya see. I jest leave mine overnight and check on 'em inna mornings. If ya wanna buy one, jest GIVE me 500 silvers ta buy one."
