This is a work in progeress

For the firearms mastery quest you have to find William Thorndop. During the conversation you'll learn that he has joined the Halcyon Order and no longer neither trains people, nor hold the weapon himself. During the initiation he had his thumb and index finger removed. Shortly after the conversation ends, however, you will be approached by a halfling, desperately asking to save his wife from the gang that kidnapped her, in order to face William. Not being able to hold a weapon, he asks you to help.The gang is hiding in the barn to the East. Once you approach them, a member will start attacking the wife. You have to kill all the members before the wife dies. It is highly advisable to have a means to resurrect her. Should you successfully finish the quest, William will reluctantly make you a firearms master if you insist. If not he will give you his looking glass rifle.


Note: Don't skip dialogue with William Thorndop to decide later what you want or else you will not get anything when talking to him again. Neither the rifle or mastery. You still can pickpocket his rifle if you want.
