Earring of Veracity Quest

Part I. Insignia Earring of Veracity

This begins in Sanctus Seru with Torsten Reidan, located at -987, -524.

You say, 'Hail, Torsten Reidan'

Oh, hello there. Sorry I didn't notice you before I was thinking of an old friend. This used to be his room. I guess no one else has been assigned to these quarters.

You say, 'What old friend?.

His name was Bregun Dorey. What a funny little halfling he was. He had a good heart and worked hard. That is up until one day he just started acting odd, very nervous like he was hiding something. Then all he would talk about was Bixie Treats and then show off some weird heirloom charm bracelet. His time for the question came and due to his odd behavior he was sent to Marus Seru. I sure wish I knew how he was doing.

Now, there's a lot of running around, but let's cut to the chase. Go to Echo Cavern thru the secret entrance in Shadow Haven and head right, toward what looks like a dead end, instead of going left to Fungus Grove. Jump up and thru the invisible wall leading to a secret area. There's a number of NPCs here. The easiest to kill are the archers. All of them will drop a letter to Bregun. The letter is lore and nodrop.

Next, head to Marus Seru and buy a Dawnshroud Cider from Vantok Mere at 815, -584. It costs 55-60pp depending on charisma. Return to the Netherbian Lair and wait for Legionnaire Dalini, who spawns near the zone to Marus Seru. He's not always up so you'll have to wait for him to spawn.

Ahhh! That is the stuff! Yeah I saw the halfling with the crazy hat. He runs around in the caverns, hanging out with the Troglodytes. It seems he somehow befriended them, I guess they enjoy his madmen antics.

Bregun WILL NOT spawn until you give that drink to Dalini. He can be found in Neth in the caves with all the troglodytes at -100, -358. These pests will attack you regardless of level. Use invis to find the halfling. Make sure to uninvis before hailing him.

You say, 'Hail, Bregun Dorey'

Trog trog trog trog?

You say, 'Trog'

Ha! What are you talking about?! Strange thing you are. Wait a minute, come closer. Are you from Norrath?

You say, 'I am from Norrath'

I thought so, you armor looks to be made from things found not here. Have you heard of Rivervale?

You say, 'I have heard of Rivervale'

Good.

You say, 'Good?'

Yeah good! Trog trog trog trog! Hahaha! These Troglodytes don't know of Rivervale. They just run around the cave all day doing Troglodyte things. Hahaha! Trog trog trog. So what was I speaking of.. Oh Bixies! So, are there Bixies around Rivervale?

Skip all this crap and hand him the letter.

Hahaha! Silly Torsten. Always snooping over my shoulder. Well I have nothing to lose... take this to him, it's directions on how to find the Journal I kept. I hid it where no one would look! Haha! Trog trog trog!

Dumb assling. Go to Torsten and give him the book.

'This is astounding. The information in this journal is invaluable and must be brought to the others attention. Take this insignia. When you are ready to help us further seek out Euzan Jurek, tell him you were sent by me, and he will tell you what you can do to further our cause. I can not tell you more than this, but keep the insignia close to you for now.'

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious got worse.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night got worse.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.

That's quite possibly the biggest faction hit I've ever seen.

You get the Insignia Earring of Veracity.


Part II. Etched Earring of Veracity

He sends you to his friend Euzan Jurek, who is in the city in a nearby building. Track him. Sorry forgot the loc. 

You say, 'Hail, Euzan Jurek'

Greetings, Galiana.

You say, 'Torsten sent me.'

So Torsten has sent you? He must see the potential within you to help us. I cannot give you any information right now as to who we are. That is a trust you must [earn].

You say, 'Earn what?'

Euzan Jurek leans in and whispers to you, 'Let it be known that assisting us will show your distrust in everything this city stands for. If you do not want to get involved I urge you to walk away now. However if you wish to [bring about change], stay and I will tell you how to earn our trust.'

You say, 'I wish to bring about change.'

Good, you must do something for us. One of our members, who needs not be named, is due to be called for the Question. We need you to go into the Heart [Consillium] and replace their records with this one. This false record shows that they have completed their Question and still have time until their next one. Changing the records will make the question pass over us so that we avoid being discovered.

Use track to find A File Cabinet. It's in one of the nearby buildings. Sorry, forgot the loc again. You can't just give it the False Record. Halflings can sneak, as can rogues. For casters, here's what you do: give it the False Records but don't click Trade. While you have the trade window open, have another person invis you, then tell them to invis themself. After both of you are invisible, THEN you click trade. You will replace the records and Guard Hargrar will pop, but since you are both invisible, he won't have anyone to attack. Run out of their while invis ASAP and go back to Euzan. Give him the original records along with your Insignia earring.

By now you must realize that we need to avoid the question because of whom we are. Seru is not the Noble Paladin this city would have you believe. You see they teach that Katta feared Seru and that he had faked his own poisoning so they could pin the blame on Seru. The next thing that I ask of you, I ask because you can travel without question from one city to another. Go to Katta and give this report to Tilbok Furrunner. Tell him we are successfully rooted within Sanctus Seru and await any commands.

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious got worse.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night got worse.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.

You get:


Part III: ???

Tilbok can be found in Katta at the upper level in a cathedral-like building around -2000, 0, with all the trainers. He's on the second floor.

Tilbok Furrunner reads through the report, hands you a small satchel then starts to explain, 'Finally news from Euzan. I knew that it would take a long time to get planted within Seru, but I still worried about their mission constantly. This report shows that you have earned trust from Euzan, so I in turn will show the same trust. Euzan and Torsten were placed in the city for information. They are deep undercover and risk their life everyday. Every person in that city is ingrained with the [purpose] of either destroying Katta or converting his people.' '

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious got worse.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night got worse.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.
You gain experience!!

You say, 'what purpose?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'The teaching in the city is that Katta feigned his death to blame it on Seru. When in fact Seru actually poisoned Katta. The crusade that Seru leads is false and must be stopped. We must gain access to Seru's [chambers] and destroy him and show the city the truth. '

You say, 'what chambers?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'We do not know much about Seru's Chamber, that is what we need you to find out. This will require great effort on your part. We need you to infiltrate Sanctus Seru and bring back reports from each Consillium. I do not know who will have these reports, and I have only heard rumor that they exist. Return to me with the Satchel full, and your Etched Earring. '

You get a Satchel, with four slots, LORE and NODROP. This is an incredibly obtuse lead. Now, the rumor has it that the third earring, when gotten, is +6 to str, sta, wis and int, +20 to hp and mana, and has a See Invis effect, meaning it's always on. The fourth is rumored to be +15 to stats, +50 hp/mana with Truesight effect. But the people who have done it are refusing to say how they did it. So, let's get to work. If you find out how to do it, drop me a line.
