The Charred Barrel is in Brackenbury district of Defiance Bay City.

01 Entrance from Brackenbury



The young elf is dressed in gaudy robes that he seems ready to cast off. He picks at a heavily brocaded sleeve and continually adjusts the gold chain around his neck. He looks up at you. "Did she send you to run me out of town? You can tell her I'm not going anywhere without that medallion."

NPC: Thristwn

QUEST: Far from Home Far from Home

I met a young Glanfathan named Thristwn at the Brackenbury inn. He and a prostitute named Serel worked together fleecing wealthy nobles until she came into possession of an Engwithan medallion. Now, she wants to sell it, but he wants to bring it home to his broken clan.

Talk to Serel at the Salty Mast in Ondra's Gift.

Serel has the Engwithan medallion, but she won't give it up easily.

She is a prostitute at the Salty Mast, a brothel in Ondra's Gift.

Thristwn suggested that I pay Maea if I want to speak with Serel.


NPC: Ableheart Skerrion Tavern, Shop


NPC: Maerwith

After visiting The Salty Mast in Ondra's Gift

For Far from Home Quest


NPC: Thristwn

Talk to Thristwn again.

Return to Serel in Ondra's Gift.

I got rid of Thristwn. Serel will want to know that he won't interfere any more. She's waiting at the Salty Mast.
