Description

As a child, Hiram Blonden was the bane of his mother's existence as he used to come home from playing covered in mud every day. When he got older, he tried out several apprenticeships—but with little aptitude for delicate fingerwork skills, had little success. Finally, his exasperated mother told him to just go play in the mud for the rest of his life. And that's exactly what he did.

Now, he is widely considered one of the leading clay miners in the area. His expertise does not lend itself to forestry, however, and in order to successfully mine ever increasing quantities of clay he needs ever increasing quantities of wood to build the restraining dams, struts, transport shutes, wagons, barrels, etc. needed in his business.

Knowing you have access to your forestry reserves, he has approached you with a business proposition. If you provide him with a large quantity of wood, he will more than compensate you with his beloved mud.
