Opening Dialog

Grand Knight tells you, "You're new to Sanamar, are you not? If you desire to prove your loyalty to the King, I have a task you may find interesting."

Grand Knight tells you, "The King has been informed of an ancient tome which lies in a ruined underground city. He dispatched a company of knights to the ruins, but they were repelled by the beasts within. The craven dogs spread tales of ghosts and undead before I had them executed for cowardice."

Grand Knight tells you, "I need someone to enter the ruins and retrieve this tome. If you do this for me, I may have more tasks for you in the future. Of course, if you fail or otherwise betray me, then I'll have nothing to do with you ever again."

Grand Knight tells you, "You can find the ruins near the outpost of Westwatch at 74.2N 74.2W. I expect to hear from you soon."

Grand Knight tells you, "But know this - the Grand Mother of Silyun also seeks this tome. Complete this task for me and she will have nothing more to do with you. Though, why you would want to socialize with those damnable rebels is beyond me."
