You have recently arrived in Sloeford looking for a place to rest when a farmer stops you asking for help. You decide to listen at him for a while and you find out his children have been missing for over two hours. You decide to look for them near the lake where they were playing.
You walk to the east till the lake, and you see no children playing there. So you decide to go a bit further searching for them.
Just a step after you see something crossing in front of you... it was a dark figure, wasn't it?! You walk quickly after it...
Of course, your character has noticed the strange figure. Now the Seraphim wonders who this person may be... and what this dark lady has to do with the children who disappeared from this place.
You walk further down the road, and half way between the lake and the cave entrance you find some toys on the ground. That's not the kind of signal you were looking for, but that's the best you have. At least these toys proof that the children were there. You pick them up, since the kids would be happy to get their toys back, and then...
Look!! That sinister figure again... You just saw it near the cave entrance. Let's find out what's cooking inside there!
Inside the cave you find lots of rats, five Brigands and their leader. After killing all of them you reach a closed door.
Since you picked a key from the Brigand Leader that attacked you in the cave, you open the door and the kids are inside!!
They are standing near the campfire waiting for the help to come. Now that you've killed all the brigands who put the kids into this place, you can talk to one of the boys and tell him that they are free to go.
Now the children are safe you bring them back with Farmer Koremar, who will be pleased to see they're back with him.
But as you walk into Koremar's house, you see that his wife Lienna is still quite nervous.
You ask her about what is she afraid and you are told a terrible story: two of her children were kidnapped nine months ago, but Koremar doesn't like to talk about it. Lienna asks you to go to Twainbrook and ask her friend Elodriel if she has found out something about the kidnapped children.
Always pleased to help good people you walk north to Twainbrook. Once there you easily find Elodriel in the town's main square.
She will explain you what she knows about the children.
Of course, you will stop the evil people who are using children as a slaves, but that's the next story: Children and Demons II.
Hirelings and Escorts
- Children - Five children who behave similarly. Escorts. Try to escape the fight.
- Since this cave is near the spot where you can find the Runemaster's son, it is convenient to do both of this quest and The Runemaster's Son at the same time.
- You might also walk up the hill that goes past the cave and into the temple where there are four fonts that you can get healing potions from and six chests with other goodies.
