After you clear the Troll Lair Depths and in the process complete the Troll Trouble questline, you should get the opportunity to annex the Southern Narlmarches. Do so and build a village in your new territory, then go visit said village to find a woman named Shaynih’a there, who will waste your time trying to indulge her attempt to become a storyteller. If you have Linzi in your party, you can refer Shaynih’a to her, and after allowing Shaynih’a to tell her stories you’ll have started and completed the quest Author Wanted earning yourself a cool 600 XP in the process.
After deciding that being a muse isn’t her calling, she’ll settle for being a weaponsmith instead, asking you to build Shaynih’a’s Shop of Exotic Curiosities in the Southern Narlmarches village. Looks like you’re going to house a quality armorsmith and weaponsmith in the same backwoods village! This will set you back a mere 30 BP, and comes highly recommended.
