Start Quest
Lord Halar

Well, isn't this excellent timing. Your exploits within the Gloom have gifted my arcanists a treasure trove of material to research. Thus, I find myself shorthanded at the moment.


Do you need some help, Lord Halar?

Lord Halar

In fact, I do. And with a matter of great importance, I should add.

I hear through the proverbial vine, ah, grape, was it? Well, I hear your path leads to the Aurelian Monastery. Ruins twisted by the Gloom. Etched into the dark like a silhouette.

The monks that once lived there discovered much. Yet as the monastery now exists as a Lost Zone, we are presented with a problem.

While the Gloom recreates instances of places it has consumed, it also twists and degrades. With each day that passes, we risk losing the truth of what the Silver Codex discovered so many years ago.

Fortunately, my research has described the existence of, ah, Tracer stations, within the Codex Halls. I believe these were devices of some kind, used by the monks to store and transmit information.

Please, explore the Codex Halls in my stead. Find a Tracer station and wrest the monk's coveted data from its mantle!

Clear Phase 1
Lord Halar

Magnificent work! I should hope that will be enough. Return to me in Skylight and we shall, as the youngins say, begin to dig in!

Lord Halar

You return! Is that it? The research is on that storage device, yes? Give it here!


You're welcome...

Lord Halar

Hmm? Oh, ah, yes! You did excellent work. Not a scratch on the device!

Now, do allow me a moment of quiet, would you? I've some delectable data to sift through!
