DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Commander Burcrif (loc=33945, 61515 in Black mountains south) outside Camelot's North Gate.

Hail, (Your Class)! Welcome to the north gates of Camelot. Fear not for your safety while inside the city walls, for Camelot is devoid of misfortune for the unwary. I wish we could say the same for the rest of the realm.

Oh, aye, Albion has fallen into a sad state since Arthur's death. King Constantine has begun securing the land, but misfortune awaits many who wander the countryside. Take what is going on over yonder, for example.

Last week some children left the city to play in the hilly woods. Shortly after they ran back yelling that one of them had been bitten by a red snake. The girl lives, thanks to the clerics, but those children will likely never play near there again. There was a time we guards would find the creature and slay it, but this realm war is draining our resources too much for even that.

Of course, if you're willing to take up the task, perhaps you could find the snake and kill it. What say you, adventurer?

Search for the red snake Commander Burcrif spoke of and slay it. You may have to flush out the snake by killing others of its kind.

Quest Goal: Kill the red snake, Slith.

Old quest dialog
Commander Burcrif (loc=33945, 61515 in Black mountains south) says, "Hail! I hear tell of a rumor. Would you perhaps like to [hear it]?"

Commander Burcrif says, "Some talk of a red snake that will only come should he become [displeased]."

Commander Burcrif says, "I know now what might truly displease a snake, but I do know where he may be found. Are you [interested]?"

Dialog box: Do you accept the Hunt for Slith quest?

You have been given the Hunt for Slith quest.

Commander Burcrif says, "Good! This rare snake was last seen to the east. Not far from the walls of Camelot. Best of luck in your endeavor!"

[Step #1] Locate and kill Slith

Just past the tent merchants are ants, pups and snakes. Northeast of the gates, declining slowly, away from Camelot, look for the broodlings and start killing them, Slith will appear (loc=41500, 55500 in Black mountains south). Best to wait a level until you are stronger unless you bring a friend. The broodlings will gang up on you while you are fighting Slith, up to 7 broodlings can be nipping at you. Slith drops his tail, which is a dex ring.

You receive Slith's Tail from Slith!
You have finished the Hunt for Slith quest.

HeHe Did this quest last night. Siths tail winds up in your inventory. I thought it had to be taken back to guard for a reward, but if u right click on the tail, then Shift-I you will find out all about it. The Shift-I identifies all magic properties on items

You need to repair your ring by giving it to a smith. This will restore the magical properties of it.

Sorry. Sliths Tail shows up as a ring. I'm stupid.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 11 2001 at 10:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Sliths tail showed up on my Jewelery slot, not as a ring. Can anyone else confirm this?
