Conspiracy: Finding the Keeper (Chapter 2:4) (Mid)
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
[Step #1] When you are ready to resume your mission for the King, return to Athr Hasetti Theyr in the Throne Room.
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "(Your Name) , all is ready for you to venture into Darkness Falls and free Iraeda from Rugak's grasp. Although you are a Bonedancer of remarkable ability, I would counsel against [going alone]."
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "Think of your most trustworthy allies and ask them to accompany you, (Your Name). We must not fail. Are you prepared to attempt the rescue of [Iraeda]?"
You have been given the Conspiracy: Finding The Keeper quest.
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "The hopes of Midgard are riding with you, (Your Name). Gather your allies and make your way to Vigdis Gythja of Hel outside the throne room, who will present you with the amulet and instructions for its use."
Athr Hasetti nods.
[Step #2] Seek out Vigdis Gythja of Hel to obtain the amulet and rescue Keeper Iraeda.
Vigdis Gythja of Hel says, "Welcome back, (Your Name). The ore you provided proved to be of exceptional quality, so making the amulet was easier than we had anticipated. I hope that this proves to be a fortunate omen for your [journey]."
Vigdis Gythja of Hel says, "Allow me to explain a bit about this amulet, (Your Name). Nethril possesses a powerful bond with the void that separates the planes of existence. That bond allows it to pierce the void and create a portal between [worlds]."
Vigdis Gythja of Hel says, "Using the amulet in an area where the realm of Darkness Falls draws near ours will use the Nethril's attunement to catapult you into the demon's domain. The amulet should also permit you to [exit] in the same fashion."
Vigdis Gythja of Hel says, "The amulet also bears an attunement to the Keeper, so it will aid you in finding where she is being held. When you are ready to depart, take the amulet with you to the entrance of Darkness Falls and hold it up before the portal."
You receive the Wayfinder Amulet from Vigdis Gythja of Hel!
[Step #3] Go to the entrance of Darkness Falls and /use the amulet to enter the demon's lair. Once inside, the amulet will guide you.
You have entered Demonic Prison.
Current area is adjusted for four level 40 players. (At lvl 50)
Popup box: "Your wayfinder Amulet reacts to the presence of a being with a shared purpose. An imp! Approach it and see what it has to say.
[Step #4] Speak with Oonalo, and hear his tale.
Oonalo says, "At last! I knew that [sooner or later], they'd send someone to rescue that fool of a Keeper. At ease, mortal surface dwellers, I'm not here to harm you, I'm here to help you. I'll explain quickly, as we haven't much time. Rugak has eyes and ears everywhere, and the longer we tarry here, the more we risk one of his agents discovering your presence, and alerting their master."
Oonalo says, "I will follow you now, (Your Name). Lead on!"
Oonalo says, "I once shared dominion of this realm with my two brothers. Not long ago, an [upstart demon] by the name of Rugak rose to power, and challenged my brothers and me for dominion over this principality. Of the three of us, only I opposed him. Without aid from my brothers, I was not powerful enough to stop him. To punish me for daring to resist him, Rugak didn't kill me. Oh, no, he had a better plan in store for me! Transforming my body into this ridiculous, squat little creature, he bound my powers, and kept me as his personal servant."
Oonalo says, "Taking advantage of his preoccupation with that mortal, Keeper Iraeda, I [managed to escape] Rugak's lair. I've been waiting for days for you mortals to send someone to attempt to rescue her. Which brings me to my proposal."
Oonalo says, "You and your friends cannot hope to [defeat Rugak], not without my aid. I assure you, within the confines of his base of power in his lair, he is almost impossible to defeat. I should know."
Oonalo says, "In my current state, I admit I'm not much use to you. However, there is a way for me to [reclaim a portion] of my former potency. That amulet you have in your possession, that granted you access to this realm, has the power to track down my brothers, also. In your language, their names would translate to Eternal Darkness and Eternal Hate. If you and your allies were to track them and kill them, I could absorb a fraction of their power, upon their deaths. While it would not completely restore me to my former self, it would grant me enough power to weaken Rugak's defenses, granting you easier access to his lair. Should you defeat him, I will allow you and your allies to leave this place unmolested."
Oonalo says, "As you can see, this arrangement [benefits] us all. But we must make haste!"
Oonalo says, "I shall now follow (Your Name). Speak to me if you would like me to follow another."
Oonalo says, "Let us be off, quickly now! Darkness makes his lair to the north, while Hate can be found to the south! We must kill them first, if I am to regain my power."
[Step #5] Allow the Wayfinder Amulet to guide you, so that you might rescue Keeper Iraeda. It will react to the presence of Eternal Darkness, Eternal Hate, and Rugak.
Eternal Darkness falls dead, freeing the trapped souls within the well. Oonalo glows with lambent energy.
[Step #8] Now that she is free, speak with Keeper Iraeda. Then, return to Athr Hasetti Theyr in Jordheim to inform him that you defeated the demon host and freed Keeper Iraeda.
Keeper Iraeda says, "(Your Class)(Your Name), thank you! We must make our way out of this infernal dungeon quickly. The demonic reach is spreading throughout the realm, and King Eirik and Athr Hasetti Theyr must be [notified] of this information."
Keeper Iraeda says, "I will cast a spell to send you to Jordheim, and I will be along shortly after you. I must collect any research material I can find before I leave. Any information I obtain will be of utmost importance to the realm's defense against the demonic [force]."
Keeper Iraeda says, "You have done the realm a great service and gained a powerful ally. I must send you on your way, as there is no time to lose. Are you ready to go to [Jordheim]?"
Keeper Iraeda says, "Off you go."
(Region) You have left Rugak's Lair.
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "Greetings (Your Race), I have eagerly awaited your return. Foolish, peasant Bonedancer you are, keeping a member of His Majesty's court waiting. Where were [you]?"
Somewhat puzzled, you tell the Athr Hasetti that you were successful in the rescue attempt. Theyr narrows his eyes slyly and looks pensive.
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "Of course, a pence-a-dozen hero [rescuing] Iraeda with no loss of life is considered successful. Indeed."
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "Oh yes, Iraeda, we cannot forget about poor, poor Iraeda. I'll deal with her on my own time; she is not a concern of mine at the moment. Let's set the Keeper and all other matters aside for now shall we? This ghastly, evil demon host doesn't have the Keeper in their possession anymore, [do they]?"
Athr Hasetti Theyr says, "I don't need a lowly mortal instructing me in matters of my own, Kobold. Such disrespect to members of the King's court is punishable. Perhaps, I should notify the King of your insolence. Just remember your place at all times, commoner, especially in front of beings of eminence! Now, mind your tongue and demeanor, the King will see you now."
In response to the sudden transformation of Athr Hasetti Theyr, the members of the court move to defend and notify the King.
[Step #9] Speak with King Eirik in the Throne Room. If you need to speak with Athr Hasetti and he has has not returned, you should exit the Throne Room and return five minutes later.
King Eirik says, "Well done, (Your Class), well done indeed! This is an important victory, but we are concerned by the ease with which our enemies infiltrated the court. Your [vigilance] has served Midgard well, young (Your Name)."
King Eirik says, "We cannot thank you enough for all you have done in combating this rebellion and facing its infernal [masterminds]."
King Eirik says, "I suppose I should have thought the Athr Hasetti's absence at court today a bit odd, but with all that has happened lately, I thought [nothing of it]."
King Eirik says, "Your sharp senses and quick thinking have saved us many a time, and now I owe my own life to you. Let all Midgard know that you have earned a place among its greatest champions and a reward befitting such a hero."
