A variation could be to get these 15 pieces collected in order to get something made out of it.

Something like … a potion. Or a special kind of armor. Or you find a recipe which needs special, somewhat rare ingredients - but you really cannot make much out of the text so you don't know what it will actually become, after everythuing's collected. And then ou need someone special - like an lchemist, or a master smith - to be able to let something out of this recipe be made. And of course that special person wants something from you (a gift or a deed done) because he or she won't be doing it for free …

I think that's the most basic layout of things like that.
