Herdegrize is an NPC.
Adventurers who stay in Astrub ought to work on their elocution. Their dialect can be impossible to understand... and there's nothing like clear speech for a clear head! I might make that the topic of my next book.
Ah, I see you've recognised me! I'm not surprised, scholars of my status find it hard to go around unnoticed. Very well, I'll sign an autograph for you. You have something for me to write with, I presume? You don't? Oh, I'm always forgetting that mere mortals never master the art of calligraphy! Here's hoping that changes, as Herdegrize the Enlightened hates to disappoint his fans!
You're in luck, I still have a few copies of one of my opuscules on me. It's the introduction to a work which is set to become a milestone in the history of literature... the very first work of Science Friction! Isn't this a dream come true?
"To a faithful reader... Yours magically, Herdegrize" ... There you are, now just wait for the ink to dry. It wouldn't do to make ugly stains on such a high-quality book! Blow three times on the first page, that should do it.
Perfect, the spell is cast! ... Sorry, I was just mumbling. You're now possess... I mean, you now possess this enchanting book! Enjoy!
- During the quest Domestic Matter
Oh, all these fans! Always wanting the slightest sliver of trimmed toenail, the smallest claw clipping, whatever knick-knack belonged to their idol... I'm sometimes weary of all that. Fame is such a drag!
You have an eye for recognising those with talent. When I look at you, I think of how difficult it must be to live in ignorance and grime. You're sincere, and I like that. Here, take this feather. Cherish it like it were your greatest treasure.
