Fish Oil is one of the crafting sidetrades available. Fishoil is used in the leatherworking craft and can also be sold to certain shops. The location where fishoil is produced is found in the village just North of Mayene.
You say 'fishoil'
A customer says 'Oil? We Mayeners produce the best oil in the world. Fish oil.'
A customer smiles proudly.
A customer says 'I can instruct you on how to make fish oil if you wish? You say 'instruct me'
A customer says 'Ah, yes.'
A customer says 'You will be needing a few items.'
A customer says 'Fish for one. A sack and a pot for another. Oh, and a carrot for the mule.'
A customer looks at you.
A customer says 'Ah, very well.'
A customer says 'First you have to gut the fish.'
A customer says 'Then you have to put the fish in the pot and place it over a fire so it will boil the fish.'
A customer says 'Take your fresh fish to a place with a crusher. Good crushers use a large round stone, powered by an animal like a mule.'
A customer says 'Put the fish in the crusher and lure the mule into motion with a carrot.'
A customer says 'The mule will put gears into motion that will rotate the stone and crush the fish.'
A customer says 'When the fish has been turned into a pulp, collect the pulp and put it in a press.'
A customer says 'When you press the pulp, the fluids will leak through the fabric of the sack into a pot.'
A customer says 'You can then let the pot stand and carefully scoop the oil from the surface, leaving pure fish oil.'
A customer says 'Take the pot and pour the oil into a cask, filtering it.'
