DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

General Wystan speaks about Drakoran Border Watchers. 3 of them have information and each is carrying a scroll that contains information that he wants. You must kill 3 to get each part of the message. He then says you
must kill a corpse candle to get the essence for one of the Ladies in the room with him.

~ Subpart to this quest. After speaking with General Wysten, the NPC named
Dory, at the entrance to the room, calls you over too him. He will "waves
a pouch of money" in front of you to sway you to his side. You have a choice
at this part, to take the bribe or decline. 1) To decline, you will
continue on as if nothing happened and Dory tells you to not mention his bribe to the others. 2) To accept this bribe, you being the subquest Trickery.

Trickery ~ Dory wants you to give him the scrolls, rather than to give them
to General Wysten. He will then give you another set of scrolls to give to
the General in their place.

Drakoran Border Watchers ~ Get on horse to Wearyall Village, jump at the first fort you come too (Anniogel will be on your left at the top of the hill). Head SW to the farthest fort, as you face the gate go left and continue on up towards a small batch of trees. You will see Drakoran Border watchers and other low Drakorans around them.(aprox loc=12124, 39452) Kill 3, journal updates. Head back to Anniogel to kill the Corpse Candle, directly south of Anniogel in the trees.

Information Quest Ending: Return to General Wysten in Caer Gothwaite. In
the dialogue he speaks on how you 'look nervous' and 'is there something more you want to tell me' At this point journal is updated to ask if you want to tell him that Dory tried to bribe you, or if you want to say [nothing else].

Personally, I played the good guy and ratted him out. Saw no difference in
the ending than the person that chose to say nothing else.

Trickery Quest Ending: Gave scrolls to Dory, Dory handed over fake scrolls. Give fake to General Wysten. Same thing, rat out Dory or let him slide.

Both endings receive Coin, XP, and a Token to take to Armorer Gamila

This is just to add that I did this Trickery quest and chose to be nasty and give the scrolls to Dory instead. He gave me 8 silver and I gained 15,9238 xp. When I gave the fake scrolls to the general he gave me 14 silver and I gained 63,712 xp. I'm a level 13 sorcerer. And I feel so evil =)

sodden corpse was found at location 42.7K,7.5K north of Anniogel at the base
of a hill near the shoreline (also seen near 44236, 8259).

    I found the Sodden Corpses at 44236, 8259. They conned blue at level 13. They are amongst a whole bunch of Waterlogged Corpses so you need to click quite a few mobs to find the Sodden Corpses.

    I did this quest as a level 13 cleric. Didn't have to kill a sodden corpse.

    The reward I got was "Pious Defender Boots". They were Piety 3, Con 3, Pow 2.

    The words: "Drakoran Border Watchers ~ Get on horse to Wearyall Village, jump at the first fort you come too (Anniogel will be on your left at the top of the hill). Head SW to the farthest fort, as you face the gate go left and continue on up towards a small batch of trees.

    The only diffrence is, seems this quest is a pre-requisite for the Failing Magic quest I recieved at level 26. If you dont rat on Dory he drops you 10 sp for staying quiet about the trickery.

    The sodden corpses I found were north of Annigel, past the fort, on the hill across from the beach which had red bugganes at level 12.

    after killing the drakoran border watchers, my quest journal says kill a sodden corpse, I see sodden warriors and waterlogged corpses.

    after reading this quest here I killed a corpse candle, that did not work.

    so there must be a sodden corpse somewhere, can anyone enlighten me?
