I have been studying the dragonkin of the Burning Steppes for weeks, and I think I've finally had a breakthrough! I created a device--I call it the Draco Incarcinatrix 900. It can capture the essence of dragon whelp broodlings!
Or, at least I think it can.
Here, take the device and zap a broodling in the Burning Steppes with it. While it's under the device's effects, defeat the broodling and its essence should be released.
If it is, then splendid! Bring me back samples so I can study them!
Do you have the broodling essence, <name>? I can't wait to study it.
And besides that... my patron is not the type of person you want to disappoint.
It worked! You got the essence! Well done, <name>! Well done!
This essence will be invaluable in my research. I hope to one day learn how to capture living dragon whelps, or perhaps capture their eggs. If I could find a way to do that, then I would be the envy of dragon scholars around the world!
My employer would also be happy, and as I said before, he's someone you want to keep happy...
