Sibling rivalry can get messy - more so when the siblings are Fremennik princes with a point to prove. The islands of Jatizso and Neitiznot were set up by two brothers who hated each other, and they have been at loggerheads ever since. But now there is a new threat from trolls in the north...
Can you prove your loyalty to both brothers and save the islanders from a fate as troll food? Your skills as a Fremennik warrior, a bridge builder and... a jester will be tested on the islands.

Give King the ores.
Items needed: 6 Mithril or 7 Coal Ores (or Pickaxe), Raw Tuna or Harpoon.
Speak to Mord Gunnars on Rellekka's northern most dock in Rellekka. He will tell you he is from an island north of Rellekka called Jatizso. He says that you need to help his nation with an important task. Choose the third option, "Can you ferry me to Jatziso?" and you will be transported there.
From the dock head north-west through the gate and talk to King Gjuki Sorvott IV in the house across from the bank (Picture). He will say he requires your unique position among the Fremenniks. First he asks you to get some raw tuna for his pet cat, Hrafn. If you don't already have a raw tuna head over to the docks and harpoon one there.
Speak to the King with your fish and you will feed the tuna to his pet cat. The King will then tell you how he's heard that more and more ships have been docking at Neitiznot Island and he thinks the people of Neitiznot are planning something. Before he can do anything about that, he must contend with the Red Axe Kelda merchants that have arrived three days early. He requires 6 pieces of mithril ore or 7 coal (only if your mining level is lower than 55). There is a mine north-west of the town where you can mine these if you didn't bring them with you. Give the ores to the king. The chancellor will reward you with 5,000gp (or 2,000gp if asked for coal) in exchange for the ore.

Go to Rellekka docks.
Talk to Maria for boat ride to Neitiznot.
Talk to Slug, behind bank.
The King will then continue saying the Neitiznot's Burgher, Mawnis Burowgar, is a fool and that he thinks Mawnis is planning to overthrow him. He'll tell you to infiltrate the Burgher's hall, undercover, and uncover his evil plans. The King will tell you to catch a ferry on the Rellekka docks. He will tell you to search his box behind his throne and find spy master clothing. The king will also tell you to find the old Spymaster, Slug Hemligssen and get information from him. Slug's secret password is "Free stuff please".
Head back to Rellekka and speak to Maria, Mord's wife (Picture). She will take you to Neitiznot. Go north-east past the yak pen and into the town. You will find Slug behind the bank. Speak to him and choose the option "Free stuff please." Slug will welcome you and tell you that you must infiltrate the Burowgar's hall as an entertainer. He will tell you that while you perform, you must take notes on their conversation.
Talk to Mawnis Burowgar, south of bank.
Perform for him.
Talk to Slug, answer questions.
Be sure to empty your hand slot in your equipment menu. Once they're free, head to the building south of the bank and speak with Mawnis Burowgar, also known as the Bergher. Start your performance. He will tell you what trick to do: skip, juggle, talk to puppet, etc. All the while, the guards will be talking. Try to pay attention to what they say if you don't want to cheat and use this guide's answers.
After 5 actions he will compliment your skills. Return to Slug behind the bank, he will ask you some questions to prove that you were listening. He will give you 2,500gp as a reward. He will tell you to figure out where the two bridges that need repairing are, but first you must gain the Burgher's trust.
- How soon does Thakkrad think Neitiznot's troops can be ready?
- They will be ready in 2 days.
- How many militia have been trained?

The engineer will tell you to repair the two bridges north of the town. A knife, the 8 logs and the 8 rope is required.

Go to Neitiznot.
Head back to Maria south-west of the town and ferry back to Rellekka. From there catch a ferry to Jatizso using Mord and speak with the King, the one you've already spoken to, opposite the bank. The King will assume the Bergher is planning an attack, just as suspected, but before the King will listen to you, he must get more money from taxes. The King makes you check the town for window tax. The citizens will need to pay 1,000gp per window they have. He gives you an empty tax bag.
Go around town talking to people and asking for their tax. When talking with them, they will ask how much it will cost. Enter the right amount of windows x 1,000. The people, where they can be found and their prices are:

Return to Jatizso and speak with the King once again. The king will seal you in his room and interrogate you. You will tell him the truth that the Bergher's troops are going to attack the trolls, not the king. After a good scolding by you, he will decide to help the Bergher defeat the troll king. The king will reluctantly give you the royal decree, but he only wants to kill the Troll King before the Bergher, not be their allies.
Unequip your jester items if you haven't already and speak to Mawnis on Neitiznot. You will give him the decree and he will appoint you leader of the raiding party, but first you must go through an initiation right. To do this right, you must make yourself a set of yak-hide armour and a Fremennik shield.
Go kill some yaks and return to Mawnis with three of their hides. He will cure them for you for a price of 5gp per hide. Then, use a needle on each hide and make one yak-hide body armour and one yak-hide leg armour. For the shield you must have 2 arctic pine logs, a hammer, 1 bronze nail and a rope. Go and craft the shield at the woodcutting stump.
Return to Mawnis and your rite will begin. After the rite of initiation he will tell you to go attack the Troll King and meet his men at the Troll's Caves.
