The Genua Job office, located on Sapphire Street in northeast Genua, offers repair jobs.

Requirements

To get a repair job, go to the Job office and "request job". You will need a claw hammer to complete the job.

Jone will then tell you where you need to go and what you need to repair:

Jone Raynalds says with a Genuan accent: Yes, we have a job for you.  You need to go to Cafe du Aquatic on Queen's Drag and repair their floorboard.  You'll need a claw hammer, and you have 60 minutes to do the job.  Good luck.

The time he gives is real time, not Disc time. You can also "review job" to have him tell you the details again.

After finishing (or failing) a job, you'll have to wait before being able to get another one:

>request job
You request a job.
Jone Raynalds says with a Genuan accent: I'm sorry, I don't have any work for you at the moment.

Repairing

Repairing takes place in various pubs and shops in Genua. To complete the job, you have to repair the item successfully three times.

The syntax is "repair <object> with <tool>". The action takes 30 crafts GP, and there is a skillcheck for crafts.smithing.black.toolsresearch.
