Greetings, oh fragrantly-scented one.

You

Wha...? Oh. Yeah. I've been spending a lot of time in the Sewers recently.

Well, we all have our hobbies.

Hey! It's not like I'm down there playing in the sewage. I was helping folks!

Oh? I see. Hmmmm...I have a small task you could help me with. But I'd need someone enterprising enough not to mind a little messy work.

You

  • Oh, yeah? What's up?
  • Oh, no. Not right now. I'm still getting the stink off from last time.

Oh, yeah? What's up?
As you may know, I am a purveyor of all things splendid and wondrous. I am a fisherman of the spectacular, casting my net wide across the seas of humanity, sieving for lost treasures.

Plus, you've got quite the gift for gab.

Yes. Well, we can't all be Paladins of the Town's nether regions, can we?

You

Hey! Was that a slam?

Oh, perish the thought. I'm clearly envious of your skills. I've wanted to meet a talent like yours for some time now.

You
DialogArrowRight

What for?

I'm no longer satisfied to find items of value in one spot to sell them in another. Since travel has become so much more... complicated... recently, I'm dusting off my research skills.

You
DialogArrowRight

You? You're a scientist?!?

Hardly! Why would I ignore everything I can't touch, burn or weigh? Now that the rise of the Animated has made it blatantly obvious that *anything* is possible in this world. So I'm dusting off old family traditions.

You
DialogArrowRight

Traditions?

Avatar guest

Yes. My grandpapa, and his family before him, were strong into research on the aethers focusing on two major areas: attempts to create life from nothing and the transmutation of elements.

You
DialogArrowRight

Wait...do you mean *alchemy*? That's Dark Ages stuff!

Avatar guest

Nicolae

We all thought so, right? But the Animated showed spontaneous generation to not be the crackpot theory we'd believed. Maybe that means that the other theories of Alchemy were incorrectly discarded, too.

You
DialogArrowRight

But...errr...well, yeah. I guess I can't argue with that. But how does that translate into a job for me?

Well done bringing me back to the point. There are green hamsters down in the Sewers that seem to possess many properties of the Grunnies that GCorp created, and then lost control of, a few years ago.

You
DialogArrowRight

And...?

Avatar guest

Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

If those 'Gramsters' have the same properties as the Grunnies did...then there is power there and I want to find out more about it.

You
DialogArrowRight

So what do you need me to do?

Avatar guest

Nicolae

Folks that've been down there, tell me about Gramsters that postively ooze with a green goo that sounds really similar to some stuff my grandpapa noted in some of his journals. I'm looking for samples of that goo.

You
DialogArrowRight

So...go squish Gramsters, scrape up the goo left behind, and bring it back to you?

Avatar guest
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Yeah. That's pretty much it. Bring me five vials of the stuff and I'll drum up a suitable reward for ya.

You

  • Splendid, eh? Okay, I'm game. Where do I go?
  • That sounds positively disgusting. Maybe later, after I get over the mental image.

Good choice! I'll send a location to your PDA, so use it to find the manhole cover and climb down the ladder there. You're looking for a particularly *gooey* form of Gramster, okay?

You
DialogArrowRight

Right. Smash the gooey ones. Scoop. Return to you.

Avatar guest

Nicolae

Exactly. Five vials of the stuff, please. Here. Take these rubber gloves. You'll need them.

You
DialogArrowRight

Can do!

It is true that the easy, comfortable jobs rarely pay well. Good luck with your affairs, [name].

[Conversation Ends]
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Oh, no. Not right now.
Suit yourself. There's a reward, of course...

You
DialogArrowRight
  • A reward? Well, it couldn't hurt to talk...
  • No thanks. I'm good for now. Another time.

Ah ha! A soul patterned after my own! Let me tell you what I need.

Nicolae

No thanks. I'm good for now. Another time.
So be it. Perhaps your attitude will soften after wandering aimlessly throughout this demanding world. Come back anytime. Nicu will be here waiting for you.

Completion Edit

Gramster Goo 5/5

The exit ladder has been marked on your PDA Map.

Return to Nicu and give him the vials of goo you've collected.

You climb up the ladder and out into Barton Town.

After Completion Edit

You
DialogArrowRight

Hey, hey, Nicu! I've got some stuff for you!

Avatar guest

Nicolae

Fantastic! You got the goo?

You
DialogArrowRight

Sure enough! It's nasty stuff, but at least it wasn't acidic or anything. Just the same, thanks for the gloves.

Avatar guest
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Heh. Hand the vials over and we'll rummage up that reward I promised you.

Well done, [name]. This is perfect. There just *has* to be something here. It's too big a coincidence for the Gramsters to not be Animated, but to show up at the same time that the Animated appeared.

You
DialogArrowRight

So you're actually trying to help get rid of the Animated?

Avatar guest
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Get rid of them? Are you insane? I haven't made this much money in one place since that summer everyone I was selling those monkey's paws for wishes.

You
DialogArrowRight

Oh. I thought you were trying to...nevermind. I should have known.

Avatar guest

Nicolae

This is going to be great! I can only imagine what new things I can make with this goo. Just imagine the customers!

You
DialogArrowRight

Ummm...yeah. So, is that it?

Avatar guest
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Oh. Right. The reward. Gotcha. Let's see...here ya go. You earned it, I suppose.

You
DialogArrowRight

Wow. So, you wouldn't happen to have anything else you need done?

Avatar guest
Nicolae
Nicolae
DialogArrowLeft

Nope. But hey...go talk to James over by the Bar. He always has something for enterprising individuals to attempt.

You
DialogArrowRight

Okay. I guess you're done with me then?

Avatar guest

What? You're still here?
