You find yourself directly in front of the always-crowded Moonshore Inn and Tavern in the centre of the crossroads that bear its name. The Moonshore has faithfully served travelers passing through these parts for generations. The din emanating from the building can be heard even at a good distance.
From here the King's path runs north and south, providing the most direct route to Talinus as well as to the southern reaches of Tysa. Several lesser roads run into the larger King's Path from different directions.
Each skill learned or level taught costs 25 gold and no experience and requires a random check of 1-20, 18 or less to pass.
A character can learn either or both skills plus train with her an additional 5 times (so if you already have the skills, you will only get 5 trainings). The current limits of training with Thaoni are unknown. As of May 2012, Weaponry: Slashing can reach at least 51. July 2012 Weaponry can reach 40. As of July 2014 she will only train Weaponry to 26.
Each character can meet Thaoni only once! They have to take all of their training sessions together when they meet her, as she returns to Naidor after the character leaves. (So you have to pass all your checks at once, too.)
Historical note: Until July 21, 2010, Thaoni was able to train Weaponry:Slashing up to 100. It was a widely known trick to wait until very late in the game and come here to train Weaponry:Slashing from level 95 to level 100 for a total cost of 125 gold and no experience. This was an enormous saving of experience versus normal training at those levels, and on the times before the gold cap (when training had a gold cost beside the XP), a huge gold saving as well. This mechanic was not believed to be a bug, but after a query from an adventurer, the GM adjusted it.
