Brawl with Chief Burguk

You can ask Chief Burguk if there is any work to be done. He will offer to brawl with you. Beat him up and you will earn 200 Gold.

Deliver Gharol's sword to Lash

Talk to the blacksmith Gharol and ask her about trading weapons with other cities to have her ask you to deliver a sword to her daugher. Agree to do so for this quest. Lask lives in Karthwasten, so fast travel over there and deliver it to her. Apparently it means "don't come back". Cold! Anyway, Lash will give you 400 Gold for delivering this and your quest will be done.
