Gurcant is eyeing fertile new fields for Summerford Farms, but pests perturb his plows.

— In-game description



  • Gurcant the botanist is too tenderhearted to root out the meddlesome mandragoras himself. However, he has no qualms about asking you to do it.
  • The fields are now ripe for tillage. Deliver the good news to Gurcant.
  • Gurcant laments having to ask outsiders for help, what with all the one-time swashbucklers loitering about, but he was grateful for your deeds all the same.


Accepting the Quest

Gurcant: Blast! How's a botanist supposed to accomplish fieldwork without a field to work in?

Gurcant: Washed-up pirates are well and good when you want a field pillaged and plundered, but not when you need it plowed.

Gurcant: A lone horticulturalist such as myself hardly strikes fear in the hearts of monsters, but your gait is such that I believe you might.

Gurcant: I'd be much obliged if you could rid the field of some mandragoras. With five fewer of the sprouting critters roaming about, I'm sure I could return to my work.

Finishing the Quest

Gurcant: How about that! You've already done more than that whole lot of slothful sea slugs combined.

Gurcant: If only they spent half as much time proving their worth as they do talking about it.
