Talk to Oto Mustam at [-26,36].


I'm flat broke, so don't expect me to give you a mission... Don't insist - I'm in no mood.

Try to raise his spirits somehow.

Step 1: Poor OtoEdit

Oto is broke. What can you do to help?

Hello dear Customer. We make anything you can think of to measure - shirts, pieces of armour, throats, whatever you want as long as we can cut it with our knives... and as long as you can pay.

Describe Oto Mustam's problem.

When you're feeling downtrodden and you'd rather be in someone else shoes, you should change them. I shall make some new shoes for Oto Mustam as a thank you for the trust he's shown in me with so many contracts sent my way. Pass me the sickworm bowl.

  • Take the glass bowl
Click on the wooden box near the wall.
Glass bowl location
Hold out the glass bowl.

By Rushu's 666 Shushus, what have you done? Look, the bowl's upside down and they're all on the floor! And you've trodden on them as well. You good-for-nothing waste of space! Those were my last specimens. Now you have to make amends. Go immediately to Erty Trapchet in Astrub and get some sickworm cocoons from him.

  • Find the map: Erty Trapchet's house [1,-21]
  • Find a sickworm
Inside the house, click on the green larva.
Click on green sickworm
You will enter a fight against 1 Green Sickworm.
Other characters can join the fight.
You will drop 1 Sickworm Cocoon.
  • Find a sickworm
Go downstairs and click on the orange larva.
Click on orange sickworm
You will enter a fight against 1 Orange Sickworm.
Other characters can join the fight.
You will drop 1 Sickworm Cocoon.
  • Find a sickworm
At the same map click on the blue larva.
Click on blue sickworm
You will enter a fight against 1 Blue Sickworm.
Other characters can join the fight.
You will drop 1 Sickworm Cocoon.
Hand over the Sickworm cocoons.

I don't know how you managed to bring them all the way from Astrub to here without damaging them. Right, that's enough chatter, I've a pair of shoes to prepare. There, a lovely pair of Kirball leather shoes. Hmm, you can't offer them to your chief like that. You'd better get Isaac Giffs to wrap them up for you. He works at the Trool Fair.

You will lose 3 Sickworm Cocoon.
You will receive 1 Polished Pump.
Demand a gift box for the pair of shoes.

Woah there, calm down. I'm sure breathing foul Brakmarian air all day can make you irritable, but there are limits you know. A gift package you say? Well now, that needs careful consideration. Would you use wrapping paper with hearts on it for a gift to your mother-in-law? Come on, give me all the details. Who is the package for and what's the occasion?

Explain Oto Mustam's situation.

That's much clearer. What you need is a corruption gift and as luck would have it, I have just the thing right here.
And you can stop with that threatening manner. In case you hadn't noticed, that giant pair of scissors you see are just as effective on flesh as they are on paper.

You will lose 1 Polished Pump.
Hand over the Corruption Wrapping Paper.

Excellent choice, this package is exceptional quality. The merchant you bought it from was no swindler.
Go back to your chief immediately and give him the gift.

You will lose 1 Corruption Wrapping Paper.
You will receive 1 Bribe for Oto Mustam.
Hand over the package and 1,000 kamas.

What are you...? Are you trying to be nice? That's completely stu... Hmm, wait a minute... You're trying to butter me up? Bribery, in other words! That's... bad! Very bad! Well done!

You will lose 1,000 Kamas.
You will lose 1 Bribe for Oto Mustam.
