This quest allows you to hire a maid named Eyja. Eyja works for Gunder, the owner of Colovian Traders shop in Skingrad. Talk to her and she will say "For 150 gold and a roof over my head I'm all yours." Accept this, as long as you have 150 Gold, and she will move in immediately.

Eyja[edit | edit source]

Ask "Eyja" and she will tell about her life. If Kitchen Furnishings are installed, Eyja can do two things. Ask for "Food" and she will bring a Shepherd's Pie, which has the effects of Dispel, Fortify Agility, Cure Disease, and Shield. Ask for "Drink" and she will bring a bottle of Rosethorn Mead, which has the effects of Fortify Endurance, Fortify Strength, Drain Intelligence, and Drain Willpower.
