The Chronides farmstead is located just south of Ephebe, in easy walking distance from Djelibeybi.


The following NPCs are to be found at the Chronides farmstead:

  • Gus Chronides and Adeipho Chronides move around inside and outside the main building. When they are outside they can serve as fly-to for witches.
  • Rhea Chronides and Koren Chronides reside in the women's quarters.
  • Farmers and traders that sell local vegetables (cabbage, tomatoes, garlic) or clothes.
  • Various servants and slaves.


The following facilities are available at the farmstead:

  • A fruit and vegetable shop sells, additionally to the obvious, red clay for pottery.
  • In the pottery workshop there are a wheel, a table with stains and glazes, a bench for drying pottery and a kiln.
  • A refreshment stand sells alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.
  • In the women's quarters there are baskets of wool, spindles for spinning and a loom for weaving. Men will be thrown out of this room swiftly during daytime, but can enter it at night when the inhabitants have gone to sleep elsewhere.
    • It is possible to try to "weave cloth on loom".
    • Searching the basket can yield a clump of wool that can be used to "spin wool with spindle". This reportedly can produce grey woollen thread.
  • In the kitchen there is a hearth that can be used for brewing tea, and mortar and pestle to grind herbs.
  • There is a well in the southwest corner of the courtyard as well as an ivy plant.
  • A water reservoir (3 gallons) is located under the shrine.


Other items of interest

  • Containers:
    • 4-5 bottles of various colours can be found on the shelf in the store room.
    • A large oinochoe and a large olpe (containers holding approximately 4 quarts) can be found on the shelf in the kitchen.
  • Olive trees are growing in the farmstead's yard, the olives can be plucked (seasonal). The trees can be climbed.
  • The farmstead is surrounded by tomato and garlic fields.
  • On the shelf in the pottery workshop there are vessels. Their shapes can be examined and their patterns studied.
  • There is an altar in the room east of the pottery shop, on which you can sacrifice or offer things (incense works) for a Bless. The command takes 50 gp, so presumably it may offer faith TMs. There may be a skillcheck. research
  • The chicken hutch at the drink stand can be opened. If the barn is searched for a shovel, then it can be used to clean the coop. In the coop are eggs which can be collected, but they're inedible and hatch into chicks after a few minutes.
  • In one room is a tree in a patch of red earth. If the patch is searched, one can acquire clay for pottery. There is a limit (up to 9) on how much clay can be gathered at one time.
  • The hay piles in the hay loft can be searched. The message suggests that something will eventually be found (a needle?). However, a skillcheck seems to be involved (50 gp used).research
  • A beam in the hayloft can be stood upon ("stand on the beam"). Presumably it offers balancing TMs.research
