First Fires it's a district of Defiance Bay City. These days it's overrun with politicians and panderers. That's where you'll find the Ducal Palace, the Vailian embassy, and Crucible Keep. The Crucible Knights were the original freedom fighters in Defiance Bay, but now they're just strutting peacocks with their eyes on fancy titles and their heads up their asses. There's an old temple of Woedica there.

Temple of Woedica

NPC: NPC: Ghost

Find a way into the temple of Woedica.

The temple of Woedica is in ruins - above ground, at least. A half-buried staircase indicates there is more to the temple below ground. Although the staircase is inaccessible to me, it's possible that there's another way in.

An old spirit haunting the temple told me about an alternate entrance through the catacombs. He said it should be near the southern gate of the Copperlane district.

A hooded man, presumably a member of the Leaden Key, was ambushed on his way through the catacombs. The disguise that would get him past the Leaden Key sentries was lost when the man was carried off by trolls.
