Ok, so you decided to start doing the storyline campaign? Awesome! In the next few quest guides we'll guide you through the process, and help you in places where you might get stuck.
Well, for starters first: Where do I start? Quite simple actually. Check the map on the top of the page, and find the house with the orange quest circle in it, right under the Sloeford Town square. In this house, on the second floor, you will find Principal Thordeth praying at, or standing near, his altar.
Talk to him when you find him. He will tell you that some bandits stole the entire annual tax levy. This is of course a serious problem.
Our tax levy has been stolen! You're our last hope, please get it back!
Some robbers have stolen the entire annual tax levy of the village! It's just a small sack, but it holds gems worth a small fortune. If we can't pay our taxes, the village is doomed. Doomed!
We know the gang's hideout is near the Endless Caves, but our fighting men are away at the war and we have no one left. Please, recover the jewels from the robbers and take them to Senator Gracchus in Thylysium. You're our last hope!
Seeing that you are on the 'good campaign' your character is shocked that such thievery still exists, and you decide to go after the scoundrels.
Do so by following the left path first to the bridge to lead you over the river. As soon as you get close to the quest location, the map will indicate where to find the pouch of stolen jewels. So when the quest objective shifts position, follow the path indicated on the right map.
When you reach the location the map indicated, there will be some random enemies, but also 1 boss-type brigand. He has no fixed position, but when you reach the quest location, he is always somewhere on your screen. When you kill him, he will drop the 'pouch with gems'.
As soon as you pick up the pouch of gems, the map will indicate you have to go to Thylyssium. The easiest, and fastest way to get there, is by following the path below. It is however recommended that you also activate the resurrection monolith there, and grab the way-point while you are at it. The monolith will slightly cut down on your traveling time further down the quest
When you reach the destination, there will be a few senate guards. Talk to the one that has the (?!) marks on his head. He will tell you that you don't just bribe people "out in the open. Go to the 'Drunken Elf' tavern, and I'll send 'old man Gracchus' around to collect the money."
Bribing wasn't your plan all along, and you notice something is off the hook here. You decide to follow up on his advice though, and you head for the drunken elf inn. You are best off following this path.
When you get there, a person called Liosilath should be in the inn. Find him, and talk to him
He will tell you that the bribing, to which the senate guard referred, is part of an elaborate corrupt government. The jewels would be in better hands when they are delivered to the local teacher, who is building a school for the children. Obviously education is a good thing (even though children often seem to disagree), and you decide this Liosilath person is completely right, and you head to teacher Solael, to hand him the stolen tax money.
Do so either by running back to the monolith, back the way you came, or press f12 if you activated the monolith like indicated. This way you re-spawn next to the monolith. Solael, and some fellow teachers, can be found right next to the monolith.
He thanks you, and praises Liosilath on his fine work. Seeing the fact that everyone seems so impressed by this figure, you decide to go to the academy and talk to this Liosilath person again, and take up on what he has to tell you. Follow this path to get to the academy, and find Liosilath inside.
As soon as you talk to him again, the first part of this quest will be completed. You will notice that after your conversation Liosilath still has the (?!) mark above his head. This is to activate the second part of the story-line quest in act 1 (Through the Wall).
- Don't forget to take the way-point (WP) and monolith on your way to see the Senate Guard in Thylysium.
- On your way to Thylysium you see a gang of bandits attacking a lady in robes. Saving her from the bandits is a hidden quest, Holdup, which grants you a significant experience bonus, when you talk to her husband, right upon entering Thylysium.
- In order to avoid failing this quest, you need to move your character up to the lady and attack the bandit that is trying to kill her. This quest is very easy to fail if you do not act quickly.
