Walkthrough & Notes

  1. Head to Ishaq's Cellar at 66.1S, 86.6W south of Ayan Baqur.
  2. Run down through the dungeon. It is short and filled with Singularity Caul creatures (Giant Mites, Sephal Nefane, and Pestilence Rats). It can be easily run through without much danger.
  3. Take Ishaq's Lost Key off the floor at the bottom of the dungeon. Be careful when you stop to pick it up because the creatures can surround you quickly.
  4. Run back to the top of the dungeon where the surface portal and Ishaq's Storage Chest is.
  5. Once you have the key you have two choices:
    1. You can turn it in to Ishaq for Ishaq's Mace and experience.
    2. You can open the Storage Chest at the top of the dungeon by the portal drop and take the Ruined Notes inside to Tanami Kei in the bar in Ayan Baqur for Tanami's Crossbow and experience.

Opening Dialog

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Well, hello there, stranger! What brings you to this forsaken corner of Osteth? I myself came for some peace and quiet!"

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Oh, no, I didn't mean it that way! You are welcome here! In fact, I could use your help ..."

Ishaq sighs loudly.

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "I'm having some trouble remembering where I left the key to my storage chest. My memory isn't so good these days, I'm afraid. And all my notes are in that chest!"

Ishaq looks at you hopefully.

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Until I find the key, I can't continue on my great work, Volume 12 of "The Peculiar Nature and Behavior of Derethian Fauna with Especial Emphasis on Cross-World Speciation"."

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Tell you what! If you can find the key for me, I'll let you read my manuscript! How about that? ... No? ... Well, I understand - not everyone is a scholar, I suppose. Hmm ... I do have a nice mace I would be happy to give you. I don't have much use for it myself anymore."

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Do we have a deal? Good! I believe I left the key in my cellar - you can find it behind my house. But please - don't go prying into my belongings. I am trusting you in my house; I trust that you will repay me with your good behavior."
Tanami Kei

Tanami Kei tells you, "Can you help me, friend? I'm a Natural Philosopher. I study the ways and means of Dereth's natural flora and fauna - and her unnatural fauna as well."

Tanami Kei tells you, "I've been making a name for myself lately, with my astute and erudite writings about the mysteries of cross-world speciation. But success breeds jealousy! And a certain man - I will not call him a colleague, nor even a rival, for in truth he is not worthy to be listed among the ranks of Natural Philosophers! - a certain man has stolen from me the notes I was compiling for my next book!"

Tanami Kei tells you, "If you can retrieve any of my notes for me, in any condition, I will reward you with a handsome crossbow I have made!"

Tanami Kei tells you, "Berkholt, in the bar, sells directions to this miscreant's dwelling. Please, friend, help me restore my reputation!"
Handing in Ishaq's Lost Key

You give Ishaq the Philosopher Ishaq's Lost Key.

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "There it is! The key to my storage chest! THank you so much! Now I can continue my great work!"

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Here, as I promised, is your reward. Are you sure you wouldn't like to hear some of my manuscript? I could just run and get my notes... ? No? Well, no worries."

Ishaq the Philosopher gives you Ishaq's Mace.

You've earned 25,000,000 experience.

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Thank you again. Be sure to drop by again sometime! You may need to remind me of our meeting, however - my memory isn't so good these days, I'm afraid."
Handing in Ruined Notes (Tanami Kei)

You give Tanami Kei Ruined Notes.

Tanami Kei tells you, "Excellent! Excellent! You took - I mean, you found some of my notes!"

Tanami Kei tries to read the sad mass of paper, to little effect.

Tanami Kei tells you, "Oh my. These are in some condition. Well, at least I have them now. And I believe I promised you a reward for your help."

Tanami Kei gives you Tanami's Crossbow.

You've earned 25,000,000 experience.

Tanami Kei tells you, "Thank you! Perhaps you can help me again in the future. Now, I must begin deciphering these immediately ..."
Handing in Ruined Notes (Ishaq the Philosopher)

You allow Ishaq the Philosopher to examine your Ruined Notes.

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "My notes! My notes! What have you done to my notes?"

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Not only have you betrayed my trust, but you ruined my work! My great manuscript! Ahhh!"

Ishaq the Philosopher tells you, "Begone! Get out of my sight! And never return! I will remember your infamy until the end of my days!"
