01 Entrance from Copperlane (11)



The woman barely glances up from the tomes on the table as you approach. "You're welcome to browse the stacks, but mind that you keep your voice down. This is still a temple, after all, and Grimda doesn't tolerate disorder."

NPC: Fexa


An elderly dwarf surveys the stacks. Her skin looks as tough and wrinkled as a walnut. Despite her stature, she manages to look down her nose at you. "You're welcome to look around, but let the priests and scriveners continue their search."

She shoots the nearest robed figure a withering glare. "Wouldn't do to give them any other excuses."

NPC: Grimda

QUEST: The Parable of Wael The Parable of Wael

A group of thieves has stolen a scroll of Wael from the Hall of Revealed Mysteries in Defiance Bay. The High Archivist, Grimda, wants me to track down the thieves and recover the scroll.

Retrieve the stolen scroll.

Grimda said that one of the thieves mentioned an abandoned farm on the path to Dyrford.

Go to Woodend Plains (07)

After return from Black Meadow (04)

I buried the scroll where Wael wished. Grimda will want to know what happened to it, but I'm not sure how she'll take this information.

I followed Wael's cryptic instructions and buried the scroll in the Black Meadow. Grimda understood this as the will of Wael and was pleased.
