Something in the Basement
When asked about the latest rumors, people around Tel Ouada might mention that Ligrod gro-Muzar and Hradell have been going into the basement of the Census and Excise Offices several times in recent weeks. Nobody knows what they're doing down there, but most people are a bit suspicious. If you head into the basement yourself, you'll find the two standing by a crate with money on it. It turns out they're moon sugar dealers - and they offer you a cut if you'll make a delivery for them. You have a choice to make.
If you agree to their offer, Ligrod gives you ten portions of moon sugar and tells you to take it to Shabhi in The Black Ogre Tavern. Head to the tavern and find Shabhi, who at first is annoyed with you and claims to have been expecting twenty portions. This turns out to be a joke, and she's really only expecting ten - although she will buy the extra if you happen to have it. She pays the full price of 50 gold per portion, so this is a good opportunity to shift any samples you happen to possess. Take the money back to Ligrod, who takes 350 gold, leaving you with your cut of 150 - plus the extra 500 if you sold another ten units to Shabhi.
Blackmail and Violence
If you don't want to get involved in the moon sugar trade, you have two options: blackmail them for your silence or report them to the Imperial Legion. If you tell them you'll keep your mouth shut for a price, Ligrod will give you 150 gold and that's the end of the story. If you decide to report them, the pair will attack at once.
You don't have to tell them what you're going to do, of course. Simply talk to a member of the Legion and tell them about the situation. Unfortunately if you do this, the pair disappear before you can deal with them, leaving a Hastily Scrawled Note to tell you what they think of your actions. If both the smugglers escape, the Legion give you 50 gold for breaking up the racket. If you kill one of them, you receive 125 gold, and if both of them are dead you get 200 gold.
