  • After completing this quest, Sigmund's daughter, Merla Bauerdatter, will ask you to give a bottle of Vintage Old Sully's Grog to Bertram Sharpwood at the docks; in return for the bottle (which must be purchased at the DDO store for 5 TP), Bertram will give you a Starter Siberys Spirit Cake. This is a one-time reward.
