ObtainingEdit

Talk to Amayiro at [-33,-56] in Bonta.

Dialog

Negotiate for some powder with Moob Tsinhcetoryp. Our new cannons have left our warehouse and we will test them before our next assault on Brakmar.
You'll pay for it this time, so be tactful when negotiating the price. I need enough for 10 cannons.

Accept.


Step 1: Bring in the PowderEdit

You must take 10 units of gunpowder to Amayiro. You can buy them from Moob Tsinhcetoryp in Bonta.


Option 1: Buy PowdersEdit

Dialog

Hello, friend, I'm the best pyrotechnician in Bonta. If you're looking for any kind of explosives, I'm your man.

Ask how much gunpowder costs.
Talk about guns in general.

There are several types of powder but the most important part is knowing how to measure it out. For the militia, I make Nocabregor powder. It's cheap, stable and only requires a small bit of energy to go off. For fireworks, I use a powder with some saltpetre to avoid any needless risk. I also make mines which need a lot of sulphur. Anyway... I can't tell you much in a few minutes, it's a vast and complex science.

Ask recipe of the Nocabregor.
Ask for a sample of Nocabregor.
Buy ten pods of Nocabregor.

Well, I can tell you're a good soul. Here, take this cannon powder... free of charge!

You receive 1 Gunpowder.
Talk to Moob Tsinhcetoryp again to buy the 9 remaining pods of powder. (requires 18,000 kamas)
Dialog

Hello, friend, I'm the best pyrotechnician in Bonta. If you're looking for any kind of explosives, I'm your man.

Buy 9 pods of powder.
Talk about guns in general.

Only nine pods? The militia is really squeamish. If we want to exterminate Brakmar one day, there'll have to be one heck of a row!
Anyway, since you've been sent by the militia, you have a 50% discount, so that makes 18,000 kamas...

Hand over 18,000 kamas.

I'm talking nonsense, the Gunpowder has been unusable ever since I hired Pandawa pyrotechnicians. Those idiots couldn't find anything better to do than relieve themselves in the reserves after their drink offerings to their goddess. Since then, I've been looking for a way to make Gunpowder alcoholic-urine-proof. Go and have a look around the Alchemists' Workshop, maybe one of them has found a miracle cure to the problem, besides firing my employees.


Dialog

Hello, I'm really very busy at the moment. I'm working on an invincibility potion. If people keep bothering me all the time, I'll never get it finished.

Explain the problem Moob Tsinhcetoryp is facing.

I can confirm, it is a real problem.

Wait for the rest.

Are you waiting for someone?

Ask whether there's a solution.

Ah, so you need my help for something... you couldn't have said that before? No, of course not. You prefer to waste my time and make me worm it out of you. Well, as it happens I have a worm here. Don't move, I'll be quick.

Bring the conversation back to the powder problem.

Ah yes, the powder. It's your fault too, you distracted me with your convoluted stories. I have what you need here: a Geegee potion. You dissolve it in lots of boiling water and let the vapour circulate round the room where the powder is stored. An idiot from Frifri traded it to me for a remedy to cure his stammering. Unfortunately, it seems the epidemic spread round his island before he returned. You can have it for free, it will be a great pleasure to see you leave.

You receive 1 Geegee Potion.


Dialog
Hand over the Geegee potion and explain how it's used.

What a strange concoction... While you were busy, I prepared enough gunpowder to test the cannons. Take it to Amayiro.

You receive 9 Gunpowder.


Dialog
Hand over the gunpowder.

Thanks for the powder! Brakmarians had better watch out! Heh heh heh!

You lose 10 Gunpowder.


Option 2: Create PowdersEdit

Dialog

Hello, friend, I'm the best pyrotechnician in Bonta. If you're looking for any kind of explosives, I'm your man.

Buy 9 pods of powder.
Talk about guns in general.

Heh, you seem to be keen on cannons? I know everything there is to know about them.

Talk about the militia's guns.
Talk about gun powder.

Anyway... I can't tell you much in a few minutes, it's a vast and complex science.

Ask recipe of the Nocabregor.

Hum, no, it's a complicated recipe, not to mention a well-guarded secret. So it's hidden in my house on a big piece of paper! Ha-ha!

Enter the house behind him. Find the hidden staircase behind the bookshelf on the first floor. Go downstairs and click on the bookcase to receive the Nocabregor Recipe in your quest inventory. If you take the recipe, you can still buy the powders from Moob Tsinhcetoryp.
The recipe for 1 Gunpowder is 3 Magical Cure, 1 Oilbow Grease and 1 Flint. Take the ingredients to Otomai's Assistant to get the powder.
