I've got to the Brother Althric Part. He was using master farmer dialogue from Fairy tale 1. I tried taking seeds (with the ring of Charos on) but he did not use the "concealing something of great evil" line. I tried throwing the ring away like the guides suggest but this did not help. Now I've lost the ring. Pickpocketing Dr Fenkenstrain doesn't work and I don't have the ring in my bank. Any suggestions to either getting the ring back or getting past Althric?
Apologies on not being clear on my first post. However, I am having the same issue as ERIKSKE11. The dialogue when talking to Brother Althric is not allowing me to "charm" him, rather asking about advanced gardeners.
