Aruq ibn Balthar tells you, "Aha! A doughty Derethian warrior! You may be just the person to help me here... There is a strange new fortified location in the Direlands, guarded by fearsome Gotrok Lugians! It is quite strange to see renegades outside their normal bailiwick in the southern mountains, and our scouts report that these monsters are even more powerful than the others of their ilk that we have previously surveyed."
Aruq ibn Balthar tells you, "We suspect, based on geomantic emanations from that location, that they are working at the behest of rebel Virindi again, but we need an intrepid adventurer such as yourself to personally infiltrate the installation and gather intelligence. Could you do this for us? Journey to the depths of the new Gotrok fortress in the Direlands at 48.7S, 68.9W and bring back whatever message shards you can find. I would be in your debt, and you would not go unrewarded."

Aruq ibn Balthar tells you, "Zounds! What a fell plot the rebel Virindi are hatching here! I am glad you were able to escape with this critical intelligence. I will send it on to my superiors on the Royal Council. No doubt they will dispatch scouts as soon as possible to comb the lands for these Nexuses they speak of. I imagine the secret societies will be quite interested in this as well... But here, here is your reward. It's something a previous visitor left here, I think you may find it useful."
