Society Greeter tells you, "Excellent! Your backpack contains all of the items in your inventory. You will notice that your pack contains multiple bags. Over time you can pick up more bags, thereby increasing the number of items you can carry!"

You allow Society Greeter to examine your Letter From Home.
Society Greeter tells you, "This is yours. Keep it if you like, or just put it on the ground to get rid of it. Of course, if you want to keep the world free from litter, you can give this note - and any other trash you might have - to a Town Crier."

Samuel tells you, "Looks like you need some armor! There are 3 different pieces of armor here. Can you find them all? Double-click on me again when you are done."

Samuel tells you, "You found some armor! To equip your armor, drag it from your backpack onto your paperdoll. You can wear armor over your clothes, but you cannot wear a piece of armor over another piece of armor."
Samuel tells you, "You may now proceed to the Training Area."

You allow Samuel to examine your Leather Gauntlets.
Samuel tells you, "Drag this item onto your paperdoll to wear it."

You allow Samuel to examine your Restoring the Training Academies.
Samuel tells you, "Ah, you found one of our confidential missives! No, don't worry, I'm not angry. You should read it. It will give you some idea of the current political situation here on Dereth."

Training Master tells you, "As you proceed through the Training Area, warriors should read the signs on the left. Spellcasters should read the signs on the right."
Training Master tells you, "The signs will tell you how to retrieve the Academy Token. Bring that token back to me."

You give Training Master Academy Token.
Training Master tells you, "Excellent work! You have completed your combat training! You may now take the portal to the Central Courtyard. Once you have teleported to the Central Courtyard, speak to the Academy Foreman to continue your training."

They are here through this door beside me. If you bring me one of their wings to prove that you have taken some of them out, I will surely reward you."

You give Academy Foreman Carpenter Wasp Wing.
Academy Foreman tells you, "Thank you! You are certainly doing your part to ensure that this Academy will thrive. Let me reward you with experience."

Academy Blacksmith tells you, "Perhaps you could help me with these thieving Thrungum. They and their noxious kin have stolen my bellows! The last time I saw them, they were running towards the vegetable gardens. Retrieve my bellows for me, and I will reward you!"

You give Academy Blacksmith Bellows.
Academy Blacksmith tells you, "Tell My bellows! Thank you. Take this, with my thanks!"
Academy Blacksmith tells you, "You should visit the Academy Researcher. Purchase the Oil of Rendering from him and use it on your weapon. I guarantee you, that Oil will greatly improve your weapon's effectiveness."

Senior Guard tells you, "Go!"

Sentry tells you, "You must be the one the Senior Guard told me about. Thank you for your assistance."
Sentry tells you, "A hive of Olthoi just breached the Outer Wall. They stole a collection of Protection Orbs. Without those orbs, we have no way of shielding ourselves from their Queen!"
Sentry tells you, "You must infiltrate the hive and travel as deep into it as you can. Find the Adolescent Olthoi and kill it. Bring back one of those orbs!"
Sentry tells you, "Go!"

You give Sentry Protection Orb.
Sentry tells you, "Thank you! You have done the Dereth Exploration Society a great service. Take this last gift from us at the Academy; it will serve you well in your initial travels."

Sentry gives you Academy Coat.
Sentry gives you Facility Hub Portal Gem.
You've earned 5,000 experience.

Thorolf gives you Sturdy Iron Key.

You give Thorolf Pathwarden Sollerets.
