Provided item: Inv misc stonetablet 08 [Crude Rubbing Kit]

Description Edit

Hah! Did you see the <Admiral/Captain> giving me dirty looks and decide to throw some sympathy my way? I've pretty much lost hope of making him understand that these ruins offers us some opportunity to salvage some usefulness out of this whole mess.

I'd actually hoped that you might turn up again - you seem like the only one I can rely on. I've seen a few tablets like this one spread about the nearby ruins and I put together a rubbing kit for transcribing them. Up to the task?

Progress Edit

Some of the information I've uncovered thus far completely shatteres previous theories we had about the Highborne culture. It's hard to believe how much history was lost to the Sundering.

Completion Edit

Brilliant! I can't have expected much more with the tools I gave you.

I should be able to fill in the blanks and get this all written out shortly. There's no knowing if we will make it out of this place, but if it comes down to it, I will find a way to float this to the surface in hopes that it will one day be found.

Thank you again, <name>. You are too kind.
