 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
Here's a rather amusing accounting that may appeal to your morbid sense of humor. Seems there's this untalented bard with a penchant for rude limericks about former patrons. As it turns out, (his/her) knowledge of geneology was lacking, and (he/she) sang a song about an incestuous duke to (his/her) new patroness, the duke's daughter. Interested in accounting this uncouth artiste for (random gold) gold pieces?
 Quest Acceptance
Questgiver goes on:
I thought it would appeal. Apparently, the bard is aware of our contract and is hiding in a dismal hole called (dungeon). Shouldn't be more than a minor scuffle, but do not let down your guard. A desperate songster can be an unpredictable adversary. Be back in (time limit) days to collect your accounting fee. Good luck.
 Quest Decline
Did I misunderstand you, or did you really say no? How do you expect to appreciate the rich tapestry of humanity if you don't have time to butcher a lousy musician?
 Quest Object
This quest is a standard dungeon crawl. Travel to the dungeon the questgiver mentioned. Find the bard in this dungeon and kill him. Afterwards, report back to the questgiver to collect your reward.
 Quest Object Dead
When the bard is dead, following message shows up:
You have slain (bard's name).
 Quest End
When you report back to the questgiver, he says:
Ah, did you stay to hear the final note from that boorish instrumentalist? Here's your cut for being the instrument of the bard's requiem: (random gold) gold pieces. Enjoy.
