Heart of Albion
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
"Heart of Albion" is from the Herald's quest contest of 2002. The winning story by Alan Fork can be found on the Camelot Herald.
Lady Nimue gives you a poem to read and you must decipher who to speak to at Adribards Retreat based from the poem.
You must speak to Summer Gram. She will tell you to kill the Undead Knight Fiedel. He will give you the first shard (knowledge) of the heart. You must return it to Summer. (Undead Knight Fiedel is at the ruined church in Avalon Marsh. Go south from Adribard's Retreat and the Ruined Church will be on the right. You must "prove" yourself by killing the Bishop and then killing Fiedel.)
She will give you a second poem to find the shard of freedom. You must travel to West Downs. Speak to the Instrument merchant, Marlin Thuler, (in the loft of the barn) and he will instruct you to kill Slave master Cotrell (Approx loc=57543, 15192 Salisbury Plains).
Bring Marlin Thuler the broken sword of Cotrell, and he will give you the shard of freedom. He gives you another poem and says you must speak to Lady Nimue again.
Give her the shard of freedom and she gives you a list of ingredients to bind
the shards together. One is the mud from a mud golem (loc=15k,50k).
The next is the mist from the mist monster NW of Cear Witrin (loc=9742,28612). Give the mud and mist to Lady Nimue. She will ask you a question. The answer is hope.
She will give you a pendant of hope..lvl 29 item
