Never Far from the Queen

While I was unable to learn the true purpose of the Leaden Key's activities or the identity of the member I pursue, I did uncover several leads about their activities in the region.

QUEST: The Man Who Waits The Man Who Waits

The Leaden Key Acolyte showed me a vision of an agent in a "place of misery and madness." I need to find this agent and discover his or her plan to see if it holds any clues to finding the man I'm searching for.

Find the "place of misery and madness."

The Leaden Key Acolyte showed me a wealthy neighborhood that also housed misery and madness. There was someone waiting there, a "prisoner by choice."

If I am to find this person I will need to find this neighborhood. Perhaps the guards will know of it.

QUEST: Undying Heritage

The Acolyte showed me a vision of an ancient tower in a derelict district of Defiance Bay. There was a strange man in the tower working on some kind of machine. I also saw a woman with a scar over her heart. I don't know where she is, but I suspect that she holds the key to whatever happened there.

The Leaden Key was interested in this tower for a reason. I need to understand what it does if I'm to figure out their plans.

Find the tower.

The Leaden Key acolyte showed me an ancient tower near a cemetery in a neighborhood filled with run-down estates.

Following this lead will requre locating the tower. Asking around would be a place to start, perhaps among the patrolling justiciars who would know the city well.

QUEST: Through Death's Gate

The Acolyte's vision showed me mysterious ruins somewhere outside of Dyrford. The Leaden Key has sent operatives to find the site, though their purpose is unknown to me.

Travel to Dyrford Village.

I don't know exactly where these ruins are, but perhaps someone in Dyrford Village does.
