Shakey quest complete and confirmed needed for Rogue epic 1.5, but Undead Renux fight is bugged.
Many thanks to Fyredragn for spending his time runnin round with me figuring this out, being half as lucky on spawns/drops ^_~
You say, 'Hail, Shakey Scarecrow'
Shakey Scarecrow rustles and looks up at you in acknowledgment.
Reebo Leafsway shakes his head sadly. 'Poor old [Shakey] just isn't what he used to be.'
You say, 'Hail, Reebo Leafsway'
You say, 'who is Shakey?'
Reebo Leafsway says 'Shakey is our protector and friend. He is just getting old. Losing his [stuffing]. His [head] is getting very cracked and dry as well.'
You say, 'what about his Head?'
Reebo Leafsway says 'The head of a scarecrow is difficult to replace. We do not know what is needed and all of our attempts have failed. Perhaps you could [research] this for us and bring back a new head for our old friend Shakey?'
You say, 'what research?'
Reebo Leafsway says 'We have heard of a great forbidden tome penned by an evil necromancer that holds the secrets of instilling life into scarecrows. We have recovered pages from that book. That is how we know about Shakey's hay. But the pages detailing the creation of a scarecrow's head are missing. We believe that the Erudites possess at least some of the pages and might know where the rest of them may be found. Start your search in their city of Erudin.'
You say, 'Hail, Sornita Eltern'
Sornita Eltern says 'Greetings, Feninie! Please be do not speak too loudly while inside the library. If you need anything
special, feel free to ask me. I am a member of the Crimson Hands and my specialty is divination. In my research I have
stumbled across many [rare tomes].'
You say, 'what rare tomes'
Sornita Eltern says 'Why, just yesterday I stumbled upon what I believe to be an excerpt from Miragul's own treatise on the origin of the creatures known as scarecrows. Such a work is heresy and would be destroyed if the High Council knew of its existence so I have been tight-lipped about my discovery. If you would like to see it, I will show it to you, for a nominal donation of 20 gold pieces.'
[give her 20 gold]
Sornita Eltern says 'Oh, yes. Very good friend. Here is the document I mentioned. It would seem to be part of a larger
body of work, but this page describes a Teir'Dal who it seems was instrumental in creating the head of the very first scarecrow. You may keep that as it is merely a magical duplicate of the original document which I have carefully hidden.'
You gain experience!!

[give this water-stained tome to Sornita]
Sornita Eltern says 'Unbelievable, you located the larger body of work I had been searching for! The text is scribbled in
old Teir`Dal, but many of the words have been smeared and blurred. In fact, there are deep claw marks on the bindings and surface of the tome. It looks like the current owner didn't care well for it. Hmm. . . This translation of it may be
spotty, but I think I'll be able to convey the general meaning for you. Ah, here you are. A duplicate copy of the writings.
I'll hold on to the original as it won't be of much use to you. Many thanks, Feninie!'

The manufacturing of a hay golem is not so complex, save for the creation of the most important part: the head. The process requires a precise set of ingredients, such that any exclusion or imitation of a crucial item can lead to disastrous results.
When combined with care, the resulting head can simply be fitted into the frame of the hay golem with no need for spells or further transmutation.
For the husk, you must locate a fitting carved pumpkin. Such can often by found in Estates teeming with the undead. While this place will feel somewhat foreboding, there is no better place to harvest this item.
Next, seek out a supplemental shapely vegetation. The best bet is a dank and moist fungus filled region.
Thirdly on the list are stringy vines. The best vines I have found are located on the moon of Luclin in the mad mage's
domain. This is why stealth is of the utmost importance.
Next, there is a need for several fragments of the unliving: The claw of an ancient dragon, long dead. Tattooed skin peeled from a zombie - I imagine there are many bloated sailors that would not miss a scrap of their flesh.
Tears of those spirits that are long forgotten.
The final elements are the most important, and oddly enough, the most difficult to find. The basking glow of an orange flame, living essence of a dancing mote of light. These wisps are typicallly found in swamplands. Also, the boiling liquid from the Mistress' laboratory.
Lastly, the reanimation formula.
Unfortunately, in all my travels I was never able to find the source of this substance and all my attempts to duplicate it have been for naught. I have often debated whether the extra efforts required for this endeavor are worth my time. Since the first time I laid eyes upon a hay golem, I knew the knowledge of their creation would be mine ... someday.

Speak in Elder Teir'dal for extra lore from Zadyr Moralin
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:35 2004] You say, 'Hail, Zadyr Moralin'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:36 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'Hmm' He has an eager look upon his troubled face. 'By the Prince, have you come to [free] me from this place?'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:38 2004] You say, 'free'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:38 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'I must find a way out of this prison, my trial is approaching, so says the warden. Time is running out for me. There is little chance of reprieve, given my [experiments].'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:41 2004] You say, 'experiments'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:41 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'My people are fleeing, fleeing underground away from the traitor-elves. We are taking to the tunnels and to the caverns, where we can rebuild our strength, beneath the surface. The Prince will protect our people. My experiments were dire indeed, and yet in times of war one must take every opportunity one can get to defeat one's foe, as I am certain that you would agree. I experimented upon the souls of my [slaves].'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:43 2004] You say, 'slaves'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:43 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'My House always kept dwarves; they are sturdy, hard-working and durable. It has always been the law of our House never to abuse the slaves, however. The war with the traitors lasted so long, and I saw an opportunity to end it. My research into the binding of mortal souls, and to use that harnessed spiritual power for further incantations, had proceeded to the point at which I required actual living subjects upon which to perform my [rituals].'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:47 2004] You say, 'rituals'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:47 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'The ritual of binding requires over two whole days of preparation, and the separation and captivation of the subject's soul takes a further two days of rigourous effort. I succeeded, but the price was high. Upon three of my slaves did I perform the rituals, and thrice damned am I for it. I wielded the power of their lifes' energies with decisiveness. My [victories] were the stuff of legends.'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:50 2004] You say, 'victories'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:50 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'Against the traitor-elves, my new-found energies from the life-force of my three slaves' trapped souls provided me with the ability to lay waste to whole legions of our enemies. Yet in their foolishness, my peers of the Prince's Elves sought to stop me, and bring me to [justice].'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:52 2004] You say, 'justice'
[Mon Sep 27 19:34:53 2004] Zadyr Moralin says, in Elder Teir'Dal, 'They took me in my sleep, and for my "crimes", I was banished here. Banished here like a criminal, rather than a savior of our species! Without my rituals, without my incantations, our people are doomed - they flee to the underworld and hide, like vermin. Even now, I sit here, accused, and were that not torment enough I am constantly reminded of my deeds by the souls of the three that I damned with me.'
