You may or may not get this quest.

Darrius (kobold in the bar) in Fort Atla, mentions something about a book that he stole from the werewolves in Askheim. It details the history of the werewolves. Also mentions something about a magical crown. He no longer is able to continue the search. He needed cash so he sold the book to 2 trolls. The trolls began fighting over the book and ripped it into 2 pieces. The each parted with a half of the book. He directs you to the first troll in Galplen. He mentions a strange woman that is searching for the book as well.

Darrius says, "Greetings friend. Have you heard the news? My wife is due very soon. I am so happy. I am hoping for a wonderful baby girl but I will be happy with just a healthy baby. I have had to give up my studies and [stay home] to watch over my wife."

Darrius says, "I have even had to sell some of my most treasured objects to gather money so I will be able to support my family. I am almost saddened that I may never get to journey back to Galplen in search of the crown I [read] about."

Darrius says, "Aye, I had this old book and I had managed to translate some of it. It told a story about werewolves and how they came from a far away land to our shores and settled down in the fort of Askheim, in Myrkwood. It also mentioned the leader of the werewolves, a Baron Falwar, has a mystical crown. The crown has been passed down from werewolf leader to leader. At least I managed to earn a few coin from the sale of the book. I [sold it] to two trolls."

Darrius says, "It is an interesting story. Would you like to hear more about the tale of two trolls?"

Dialog box: Find the two trolls and learn what secrets the old book holds?

You have been given the Tale of Two Trolls quest.

[Step #1] Learn of the two trolls from Darrius, in Fort Atla.

Darrius says, "I guess they were friends until they bought my book. I saw them get angry and they started fighting. They almost crushed me by accident as they [rolled around] the floor. Finally, they tore my poor book in half."

Darrius says, "I told them to get out. I was amazed that they wanted their money back because the book was torn up. They are probably somewhere in Gaplen trying to sell someone what is left of the book. I am kind of [glad] I sold the book."

Darrius says, "A few days after the trolls bought the book, a strange woman came through town searching for it. She said that an old Runemaster had told her I had it. She seemed really upset when I told her I sold the book and wanted to know [who] bought it."

Darrius says, "I told her that the troll called himself Aki and had said he was returning to Galplen. The woman said she studied werewolves and wanted any knowledge the book contained. I told her I didn't know anything else."

Darrius says, "Wait! I have an idea."

Darrius says, "If you can get the book back from the trolls maybe you can seel her the book. I am sure she will pay quite a few coins for it. It seemed really important to her. I don't understand why anyone would want to study the [werewolves] anyway."

Darrius says, "They are cursed. Legend tells of people who could change into forest creatures but only because of their faith. The werewolves can change others into werewolves with but a single cite. That is why I did not mind trying to [steal from them]."

Darrius says, "The crown sounds like it could be a worthy prize for someone strong enough to go get it. If I were you, I would go to the stables and get a horse. You can reach Galplen much faster if you ride. Aki should be selling his wares somewhere around town. Talk to him about it."

[Step #2] Journey to Galplen and seek out Aki, the troll, for the first half of the book.

Aki a troll merchant in Galplen is the first troll. He talks about the book a little and explains that he cant read and will trade you the book for a perfect badger pelt from a woodland badger found in skona ravine. These mobs were blue and yellow to me at 25. These are found near the eastern start of the ravine in Skona.He also mentions that a woman came to him seeking the same book and she is looking for a pelt to get it as well. Bring him the pelt and he gives you the first half of the book. He mentions that the woman came back with a pelt but it was torn to shreds (may be a clue about her origins) and useless to him so he denied her the book. He then directs you to the 2nd troll located in Gna Faste. Some harsh words about his ex-friend end with a comment about hoping that Njesse eats him if he crosses the lake.

Kedin a troll merchant in Gna is your second troll. He talks a little about
the feud with Aki. He is willing to part with his half of the book if you
bring him some oil from a Giant Tree Frog from Skona Ravine. These mobs
conned blue to me at 25. They are found near the stonehedge type place. Bringing him the oil earns you his half of the book. He directs you to the
mysterious woman near the werewolf fort of Askheim. You may be sent to kill some drakes instead. I found the young drakelings at loc = 5.5k, 61k. Im a lvl 25 zerker and they coned btm. Was by 2 broken egg mounds over by skona.

Alina is found east of Askheim along the shore (loc=23935, 49671, 5110). Give her the books and she
details some history of the werewolf colony. She also regrets that you know
of the magical crown and challenges you to confront her after sunset eluding
that she is a werewolf. At about the 20th hour she will despawn. After a few
mins I began looking around to find her so am unsure of her spawn location.
She wanders around as Noble Werewolf Alina. She was blue to me at 25.
Kill her and her dying words are something about Baron Falwur having the
crown but you better bring an army if you wish to have the crown.

Baron Fulwar is located in the Werewolf fort of Askheim surrounded by about
5-6 werewolves and minor werewolf nobles. Kill him and you recieve the
crown. Baron is BAF so you may need a few people to help take down all the

The Baron Falwur calls for help!

You receive a Woven Crest Crown from Baron Falwur!
You have finished the Tale of Two Trolls quest.

Rigid Crescent Crown -- Shadowblade, Mauler
Woven Crescent Crown -- Bonedancer, Rune and Spiritmasters
Barbed Crescent Crown -- Skald, Thane, Valkyrie, and Warrior
Thick Crescent Crown -- Healer and Shaman
Spiked Crescent Crown -- Berserker and Hunter

Found two of them close together at 49661, 59625, 5114 in Skona at 9h 32m game time.

Had been wandering through the area for over 30 minutes real-time, so there might be a specific window when they spawn.

THe Giant tree frogs are a bit more south than it leads you to believe. I found them while omw to kill Pellinistra. They were around loc 55k, 20k.
Not always dragon scales...

Our thanes and shadowblades are doing all their quests together... we were told to get a 'perfect badger plet' from a woodland badger in Skona... and now we have to get 'toad wart oil' from a giant tree frog in Skona.

We are both level 22, in Midgard Prydwen.
Werewolf Alina spawn
# Jun 30 2002 at 11:03 AM Rating: Default
I saw Minor Noble Werewolf Alina spawn at 24.5k, 50k. That's very close to where her human version was standing. It spawned between 23:00 and 0:30. She was blue at 25th level and calls for help (though there doesn't appear to be anything in the area that could help) when hurt.

# Jun 30 2002 at 11:07 AM Rating: Default
She respawned later in another location because I didn't move and saw her roaming around later. If you need to find her, just check the area around where her human form is during the day.

I got this one, but not the Widower Hunt... I checked Yver every level and now I am almost 30, still no Widower, but my Tale is not finished, so maybe it is the other way around.
# May 01 2002 at 9:39 AM Rating: Default
this is a quest that requires other quests to do it. What ones I'm not sure! just do all the quests like I tend to do! guys! TRUST ME ON IT!

You can also find drakes in Myrkwood if you follow the directions given in the quest.

Werewolf Alina does not spawn in same spot, but nearby, Alina is on the hill, the werewolf Alina spawns by a tree, not on the hill.

Those are different drakes. I had to kill a young envy drake first, then they sent me out to kill a silver envy drake. Depends what class you are I guess.

I was told by the 2nd troll to go to skona and get a silver scale from a young silver scaled drake...where that heck is that?
Prereq for this quest
# Mar 18 2002 at 5:14 PM Rating: Default
Ok guys, I finally appealed this in game. Turns our there is a prerequisite to the quest, as the poster below points out. ("You have to do a quest to get a quest")

Apparently the magic quest is:

Widower Hunt
NPC: Yver in Haggerfell (right inside the gates)
Level 21
Reward is a shield.
Quest has a ton of steps tho.

Good luck all.

you got to do quests to get quests
# Mar 15 2002 at 3:29 PM Rating: Default
You have to do quests to get quests - case in point - for the Njesse quest -you HAD to do the "Hunting Party" quest offered by Bork for him to offer the other to you.

So if you aren't getting the quest - you just aren't well known from doing other quests for the citizens to think you are capable.

By the way - the crown looks spiffy on my Shadowblade

Silver Scale Drakes
# Mar 01 2002 at 11:43 AM Rating: Default
I have also been looking forever for those silver drakes. I have heard that they should be in the south east corner of Skona but i haven't found one yet. If anyone know where they are, please let us know.

RE: Silver Scale Drakes
# Mar 02 2002 at 11:32 AM Rating: Default
I found the Silver Drake! They are at about 43K,55K. They mix with the Envy Drakes. I soloed him at 25 lvl, and he conned Yellow. Was a tough fight. Good Luck!

Hmm this is really strange I tried to talk to Darius in Ft. Atla but he wont talk to me. I'am lvl 23 Healer playing on Prydwen server. I think this may be because of the 1.36 patch we have. So it's still a lvl 24 quest. Same goes for Njessi quest I can't recieve it from Bork, everybody says it's a lvl 22 quest but I can't recieve that either!! It's really frustrating. Well I'll wait and see after the patching to 1.45.
# Feb 21 2002 at 1:38 AM Rating: Default
First off, minimum lvl for this quest is 22.

I got the first part done by killing an envy drake. Now I have a problem solving second part, which was given to me, killing a young silver scale drake. I've looked all over for this creature in Skona Ravine, but no luck so far (spent whole RT day there).
I know these killing tasks are randomly given, but anyone knows or found young silver scale drakes, please show me the way there.

Thank you
Neplus, lvl22 Thane
RE: question
# Mar 01 2002 at 11:55 AM Rating: Default
I found a reference on another sight as to the Silver Drake. He said it took him a while, but he finally found one at approximately 43K, 55K.
I have not checked this out myself yet...Hope he is right!

Good, I thought I was the only one. I have been looking for one of those damn things for days (game and real time). If anyone out there has seen one, PLEASE let us know where they are!
