Welcome to Tupta, home of the Guktan Guard! Once per day (and which one is offered will cycle daily), level 50+ crafters can obtain a solo tradeskill task from Reedip Marrstongue, which will earn you +2000 faction with the Guktan Guard and -500 faction with Clan Grobb.
Yep! Gain with one, lose with the other, since they're definitely not friends with each other. If you decide that you want to work on both factions, you will want to make sure that you're balancing out a quest from one with a quest from the other (for an overall net gain of +1500 for each).
In addition, you will not want to head over to pick up quests in either location until you have gained some faction with both -- such as at least completing the Fighting Swamp Foot sub-quest of Ship Out. If you rush into these encampments without having earned any faction at all, the guards will happily attack you.
For each of these quests, you will want to grab the recipe book that is sitting on top of the Chemistry Table. (It looks like an open book). When you are finished with the task, you will turn your "work" into the basket right next to the Reedip.
Resources are gathered from within the settlement as well as nearby (further details at bottom of page for those who need more information).
