Story Dialogue
There is a sense of unease around the town. Go see Aislinn.
Aislinn (NPC Icon).png Aislinn

Fenella, have you heard the news?

It's so tragic... Apparently, Boulogne's kid never
woke up...

Fenella (NPC Icon).png Fenella

Oh no... That's awful.

....

Aislinn (NPC Icon).png Aislinn

(You ask them what they're talking about
and Aislinn starts.)

When did you get here, <Karok>?

Oh, go on! Work comes first. I'll let you know if I have any news
about Boulogne.

Earn at least 120 pts in Battle Quest Madness and go to Aislinn.
Aislinn (NPC Icon).png Aislinn

You want to know what we were talking about?

Well, the word around town is that Boulogne's
son passed away.

(Aislinn looks thoughtful.)
You haven't met Boulogne yet, have you?

He's a forest keeper who lives north of Colhen.
It was jsut him and his son.

They'd deliver wood to Colhen sometimes.
Well, apparently, his son was bitten by a wild animal.

He mentioned teh boy had a fever, but no one knew it was so
serious.

Fenella (NPC Icon).png Fenella

Boulogne doted on his boy. He was so proud of the
way he worked in the forest, just like his old man.

Tsk, it's such a waste. Such a tragic waste.

Aislinn (NPC Icon).png Aislinn

I can't even begin to imagine the pain Boulogne's feeling right now.

Fenella (NPC Icon).png Fenella

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

(Marrec barges through the door.)
<Karok>! There you are!

You don't have time to stand around and chat. Gwynn's
ordered us to assemble at the Mercenary Outpost.

Let's go!

There have been orders to gather at the Mercenary Outpost. Go to Gwynn.
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

(Gwynn glares at you.)
You're late. Don't let it happen again.

(Gwynn looks at all the mercenaries gathered.)
I'll make it short, since we don't have much time.

Something is going on with the kobolds in
Hoarfrost Hollow.

I thought we were finished with them, but apparently not.
Watch your backs. The whole things [sic] feels...strange.

Keep your eyes open and don't miss anything. Understand?

[[File:{{{npc}}} (NPC Icon).png|text-bottom|35px]] [[{{{npc}}}]]
You learned the Story: [[Learn story::Stolen Scroll|Stolen Scroll]].
Find a Book of Immortality in Battle Quest Unfinished Business or obtain the Book Rescuer, and talk to Gwynn.
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Did you slay the kobolds?

What did you find? This book seems quite old...


(Gwynn takes a closer look at the book.)

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

It's written in an ancient language. Based on the strange patterns, I can only assume it belonged to a magician.

Find some answers at the Magic Laboratory. I want details.

Get information about Book of Immortality from Brynn, and then tell Gwynn about it.
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

So, did you find out what it's used for?

(You nod and explain. Gwynn frowns.)
A spell to bring the dead back to life?

This is bad. No wonder the kobolds have been acting so strangely.

You know who they're trying to revive, don't you?

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

We must put an end to this before it becomes an even bigger problem. Quickly!

Find the Boulogne Locket in Battle Quest The Howling Soul and bring it to Gwynn.
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Tell me what you know.

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

When we arrived, the ritual was already complete.

There was no sign of a revival, or any magic at all.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Are you saying you fought against an enemy you've already
defeated?

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

Not exactly.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

...?

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

He looked like his old self, in a way, but it was odd.
It looked as if he had no soul. Just an empty husk.

Reminded me of the Wood Men at the Mercenary
Training Site. Something seemed off. Fake.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

That must mean the ritual failed. There was no
true revival, just an empty body.

It was most likely controlled by other spirits. Hmm...

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

But then we discovered something else...

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Do tell.

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

<Karok>.
Show her what we found.


(You hand the Boulogne Locket to Gwynn.)

What is this?


(Gwynn opens the necklace and stares at the picture inside.)

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

That's...

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Do you know who this is?

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

....

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

It's the forest keeper that lives just outside Colhen.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Oh? But how did this necklace get so far from town, then?

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

His son passed away not too long ago.
He couldn't accept it...

So he took his son's body to Hoarfrost Depths,
where it wouldn't decay...

He must've gone there to visit his son.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

But wasn't this necklace found on someone
else's body?

Marrec (NPC Icon).png Marrec

....

Ceara (NPC Icon).png Ceara

....

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

We're overlooking an important fact. The Book of
Immortality was also found there.

This book supposedly has the power to revive
the dead. So, what does this all mean?

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

....

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Hmm, tell me. What kind of person was Boulogne?

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

He seemed a simple man who loved his son
and loved the forest.

We all mourned over the kid's death, and we all
worried he wouldn't recover from the loss of his son.

The people of Colhen consider Boulogne as family.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

I see. Protocol would dictate that I inform my
superiors and deliver the corpse to Rocheste.

But I will allow this issue to be resolved here.
I will not be submitting a report...

I trust you will handle the issue as you see fit.
Burn the corpose [sic] or bury it, I leave it to you.

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

Thank you.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

I am exhausted, but I don't think I'll be able to sleep well tonight.
