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

What kind of quest begins with the instructions, "She gives you a poem to read...."

Who is she? Where is she?
Where did Marlin go?

Anyone have any hints on Cottrel's loc? Big, dangerous zone for 15s to be running around in w/o some idead of where they're headed.

I can tell ya that Fiedel is to be found at the ruined church in Avalon Marsh. Hope it helps.

Found Cotrell, as stated above, at a slaver camp near the NE end of Salisbury Plains. It is within view of the drawing on the hillside near the river, and just South of a hill occupied by tomb raiders. Cons were blue-oj to lvl 16. Approx loc is 58, 18.

I suspect this camp was added not long ago; I certainly don't remember having seen it there in the past when hunting in this area.

Good hunt.

That slave camp has been there forever. I xped there when my first character was a baby.

I had to search the crates for *ages* to find the dagger.

The exact loc numbers for Slave Master Cottrel, as of April 10, 2007, is:

Lady Nimue is currently located at the north western edge of the lake by Nob's Stable in Cotsworld.

Sorry if this is old news, but I thought that this thread was in dire need of an update.
