14.4 Vellis and His Life's Work: Butterflies
(See also HELP NEWBIE QUESTS, HELP MINIA, HELP PASH, HELP SAVANNAH) As you explore Achaea, particularly Minia, the Savannah, and the Pash valley, you will notice a variety of butterflies flitting to and fro. Though you could kill them, slaying a butterfly is hardly something to be proud of, and in any case, no one will give you anything for a dead butterfly(*). Vellis ------ At the entrance to Minia, a man named Vellis waits. This man has a penchant for butterflies and will be willing to give you gold for live butterflies. To capture these butterflies alive, however, requires a butterfly net. Simply GREET VELLIS and accept the butterfly net he offers you. Then, wield the net, find a butterfly, and CATCH BUTTERFLY. When you're ready, go back to Vellis and GIVE NET TO VELLIS. He'll review your catch and give you a little reward. Be sure you're done, because he won't give you a new net for at least one Achaean day. Note: there is no limit to the number of butterflies that you may hold in your net, nor how long they will remain in it, excepting your own patience and the tendency of everything in Achaea to decay over time. Finding Vellis -------------- Just find Minia. From Portals, read the sign. Butterflies ----------- There are six types of butterflies in Achaea. Ranging from most common (and least valuable to Vellis) to rarest (and most valuable to Vellis) they are: Gold Name ----- -------------------------- 10 red admiral butterfly 15 white pearl butterfly 25 indigo nightfire butterfly 40 glitterlight butterfly 60 golden emperor butterfly 80 summerstorm butterfly Vellis is not interested in butterflies found in or near the Aalen forest. (*) - this is not strictly true. Finding out how and/or why is up to you! (See also HELP NEWBIE QUESTS, HELP MINIA, HELP PASH, HELP SAVANNAH)
