THE ALLIANCE SMUGLER
This quest is sequel from New Year 2012 quest.
There's 1 NPC to talk about this quest:
1. Rakham (Pirate Smugler)
Code Location: pirates
Intro: Hey, looking to make some quick gold and maybe help out the Alliance in their effort against Drakath? My name is Rakham and I'm the best smuggler in Lolosia. Never heard of me? Of course not. That's how good I am. I have a job for you if you're interested...
Surprised that the Alliance would employ a pirate? Don't be. There's a long tradition of people hiring pirates and smugglers in times of war for a lot of different reasons. The fact is, I can get some stuff that nobody else can and I can move it from place to place quietly with no questions asked. The Alliance recognizes that and it makes me valuable to them.
Task 1: Shape of the Ship?
Description: Knew I could count on you. Here's the deal. My rival, Capt. 000000Beard, was due back in port a few days ago. His ship showed up but he's just bobbing there in the harbor like a cork.
