Gurcant seeks fertile soil to improve the yields of his newly plowed fields.

— In-game description


Optional rewards





  • Gurcant seeks fertile soil to improve the yields of his newly plowed fields.
  • It would appear that Rhotwyda is knowledgeable about blackloam. Seek her in the orchard and ask her about this special soil.
  • Pfrewahl is overjoyed upon seeing the blackloam, but becomes coy when you express your curiosity at the soil's origins. Hopefully it is nothing to soil oneself over.


Gurcant: Blast! At this rate, the crops will never be ready for harvest.

Gurcant: If only we had blackloam... Just a bit could send our stalks soaring!

Gurcant: I'll bet Rhotwyda knows where you might find some. Perhaps you might pay her a visit in the orchard?

Rhotwyda: That Gurcant's got a head of cabbage if he thinks I'm fetchin' him any blackloam!

Rhotwyda: But if you dare to pinch some from the Cookpot, then be my guest. Just mind you don't get trampled upon by the aurochs that dwell there.

Rhotwyda: Once you've three bushels' worth, take the blackloam to Pfrewahl at Tiller's Rest. He'll know what to do.

Pfrewahl: Argh, even the weeds wither and die in this desolate dirt.

Pfrewahl: But a bit of this blackloam ought to change all that! I haven't seen any in ages. Gathering blackloam's not for the weak of will...nor the weak of stomach, eh? Hahaha!

Pfrewahl: ...Oh, don't tell me Gurcant and Rhotwyda neglected to mention where blackloam comes from.

Pfrewahl: Well, surely you figured it out on your own from the cloying stench! It comes from the aurochs' lair, of all places!

Pfrewahl: Ahem, well, why dwell on who misled whom about what? What matters is that your efforts have brought us the blackloam, and we can expect a bountiful harvest as a result. Thank you!
