Talk to Tieve.
Tieve (NPC Icon).png Tieve

Oh, good morning.

Oh, it's not morning anymore?
I'm sorry, I just woke up.

I've been sleeping a lot lately.
I feel tired all the time.

Oh yeah, take this.

I got it from a peddler who stopped by the Inn.
He paid for his room with this.

He said that he was on his way to Rocheste,
but he was not allowed to enter.

He told me he didn't have any money,
since he couldn't do business there.

Is something going on?
Well, the people here in Colhen aren't worried.

We have all the great mercenaries,
and you, <Karok>!

Well, you should visit the Mercenary Outpost.
I'll see you again later.

Talk to Aodhan.
Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

Hm, all right. I'll take care of that.
Oh, <Karok> is here.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Good timing.
Captain, explain the situation.

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

All right. <Karok>, starting today, you will
be taking orders from Gwynn.

From now, she is your commander.
Be aware that this is only temporary.

When Gwynn's aide returns, you will be
assigned back to the Mercenary Outpost.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Oh, he was relieved of his duties.
I have no need of such people.

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

I thought he was injured, correct?

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Injured? He got food poisoning from civilian soup.
To fall ill at such a critical time is unacceptable.

I requested a new aide.
You will only be assisting me until the replacement arrives.

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

Is that so?

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Do you understand?
You will follow my orders for the time being.

Your actions will reflect upon the entire
Royal Army, so exercise discipline.

You are not officially a memeber [sic] of the
Royal Army, but I will monitor your performance.

If it is acceptable, I can recommend you
to the Royal Academy for training.

Everything depends on your performance,
so I suggest you impress me.

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

Thank you.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

This will be your first mission for
the Royal Army, <Karok>.

I am sure you know that a great battle is
imminent at Fobellow Prairie.

What you may not know is that battles are
breaking out all across the countryside.

Colhen's becoming more and more strategically important.
We've been ordered to patrol this area more thoroughly.

For now, the mercenaries will patrol the ruins.
Is that acceptable, captain?

Aodhan (NPC Icon).png Aodhan

Yes, I concur.

Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

Good. <Karok>, you are to patrol the Hoarfrost Depths.
This is a deeper, more remote section of the Hollow.

If you find something suspicious in Hoarfrost Depths,
report it immediately.

Complete the Battle Quest Patrolling the Depths and return to Gwynn.
Gwynn (NPC Icon).png Gwynn

You've returned. Are the kobolds taking over the area?
Well, give me your report.

(You mention that you encountered large, monstrous creatures
that seemed to live in the snow. Gwynn frowns.)

Snow...monsters? That sounds like something from a children's
book. Since you have no proof, I assume you're pulling my leg.

This is no time for jokes. If you're just going to waste my time,
you should leave. I have important work to take care of.
