 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
Are you (player's name)? The (player's rank)?
 Quest Acceptance
Questgiver goes on:
Ah, good. I have a letter for you. Apparently more than simple chance brought you here.
 Quest Decline
Very well, forgive the mistake.
 Quest Object
You will be given one of two possible letters by the questgiver. Read the letter, the contents of the letters are approximately the same. It says the Acolyte of the Oracle is currently in a temple in town and wants to speak to you, before the quest's time limit has expired. Meet him and he will say to you:
Thank you for coming, (player's first name). The Oracle has foreseen the death of one of the great nobles of (town), the noble (noble's name), and like a pebble in a still pond, (his/her) death will lead to great calamity for (current region). I have tried speaking with (him/her), but I am not permitted to enter (his/her) company in (noble's residence). My mistress, the Oracle, intends to come to (town) speak with (his/her) Grace, and I last heard that she was in (oracle's town). I am not familiar with these parts, so I don't know how far away that is. I need you to either talk to (noble's name) and convince (him/her) to protect (him/her)- self, or find the Oracle somewhere near (oracle's town) and bring her to see (him/her). There is precious little time. Please, I beg thee, hurry.
Afterward speak to the noble if you like, he/she can be found in a building in town. He/She will say:
As I told that blasted Acolyte, I am not interested in hiding my head because some mad old crone had a bad dream about me. As it happens, I am waiting for some word about my love, (lover's name) who was kidnapped. I will listen to (his/her) advice on this matter, but I will not go into hiding while (he/she) remains in danger. I should never have let (him/her) go within a hundred feet of (dungeon) without proper escort, but I will certainly not abandon my love now. There is your answer, (Brother/Sister).
This quest can be done in two ways.
 Rescue the lover
Travel to the dungeon the noble mentioned to you and find the lover within. Talk to him/her and escort him/her back to the noble. Once you speak to the noble the lover will convince him/her to go into hiding and you will get a random amount of gold as reward.
 Bring the Oracle to the noble
Travel to the town the Acolyte mentioned to you and talk to the Oracle, who will be in the local temple there. She will say:
You are (player's name), the (player's race) my Acolyte sent to escort me to (noble's name). I gave my eyes to the gods, you see, and I saw your approach through their eyes. Now, let us hurry to (noble's residence) in (town) before (noble's name)'s fate is set.
Bring her back to the noble and she will convince him/her to go into hiding. Choosing this way will not get you any material reward, but reputation with Sentinel.
If you bring both the lover and the Oracle to the noble you won't get the gold and reputation. You will only get the reputation with Sentinel.
 Quest End
When the noble was convinced to go into hiding, you will get following notification from the questgiver (probably in your mind):
You are a credit to the guild (player's first name).
 Reputation Gain/Loss
A successfully completed quest results in a reputation gain according to the table below.
|The Mercenary Mages||+5|
A failed quest results in a reputation loss according to the table below.
(Allies/Enemies affiliations for listed factions are not considered)
 Additional Reputation
If the Oracle convinced the noble to go into hiding, you will gain additional reputation as seen below.
(Allies/Enemies affiliations for listed factions are not considered in the tables)
- Random dungeon monsters
- The town where you start this quest must have at least one temple for the quest to work.
- Although the Oracle is an ally of Queen Akorith, you will not get any reputation with her or the Acolyte in case you gain reputation with Sentinel and Queen Akorithi.
- The flat that is used for the Acolyte is the one with index 19. It is a female one and therefore false since the Acolyte is male. The correct flat should be the flat with index 20.
