The quest is called "Signal Fires", obtained for this NPC. Here is the opening text:

We have tried to send raiding expeditions to weaken Dark Reign here in the Lavastorm Mountains. So far, our attacks have failed due to their extensive communication network. They always seem to know when we're coming! Our spies even report that Dark Reign has secured a temporary alliance with the Snowfoot goblin clan. In exchange for resources, the goblins tend to Dark Reign's signal fires which burn on the icy peaks of the Ascent.

Perhaps we can use this to our advantage? Journey up the Ascent and ambush the goblins stationed there. Slay the signal wardens and gather their fuel to start the signal fire. In the ensuring confusion, we can attack Dark Reign here in Lavastorm while they are busy responding to your false signal!


Step 1: Touch the entrance to The Ascent

You have entered The Ascent: Signal Fires

The portal is west of the static Stillmoon Temple entrance in the snowy mountains. You start halfway up inside the Ascent.

Step 2: Kill 15 Snowfoot Goblins

Plow trash until you get to the icy part of the Ascent, and start killing the Snowfoots. They are level 69-71, hit for no harder than 800, and do not summon.

Step 3: Gather the Ascent signal fuel.

The "Ascent Signal Fuel" drops off of mobs littered throughout the mountain called "a Snowfoot signal warden". These are the same as the other goblins. You must loot three (3) of these.

Step 4: Fuel the Ascent Signal Fire

The "Snowfoot Signal Fire" is at the very back of the top of the mountain, surronded by four Snowfoot goblins. Kill them, and light the fire to complete the task.

REWARD:
Norrath Keeper's Token
38 Radiant Crystals

Mobs in this task are all 69 - 71, and are the following:

an iron watcher
a kirin student
an ascent diviner
an ascent rock healer
a Snowfoot antagonizer
a Snowfoot mystic
a Snowfoot signal warden
a Snowfoot heathen
a granite defender
Snowfoot Signal Fire (level 1)

Got screenshots of all of these ready to upload.

The task itself was pretty easy for a 78 wizard and 75 necro. Just be careful when you're pulling, as mobs -really- like to hide in the smallest corners. The mobs in this instance DO respawn after about 25 minutes, so if you end up having to evacuate or get killed, you'll be forced to clear your way back to the top due to see invis monsters.

Good luck!

Task is called "Scales of Justice" and is obtained for this mob. Opening text is:

To establish better relations with some of the temple's inhabitants we've decided to try and give them a peace offering. Within the temple is an aqua goblin who is the keeper of the pond. Approach him slowly and carefully so he understands that you do not mean him harm. Bring him this magical food which will help to enhance the color of his koi, which should make him very pleased. There are those within the temple that do not wish for better relations and they may try to stop you so you must be careful.

You receive "Small sack of Koi Food"

NO TRADE QUEST ITEM
WT: 0.5 Size: SMALL
Class: ALL
Race: ALL

Step 1: Touch the portal to Stillmoon Temple

You have entered Stillmoon Temple: Scales of Justice

The portal is the one right outside of the static Stillmoon zone line.

Step 2: Deliver 1 Small sack of Koi Food to Goblin Koi Master

"A Stillmoon koi master" - level 73 - is located at the far west end of the zone, next to the pond. Plow trash until you get to him, and hand in the sack of food.

Step 3: ? ? ?

Step 4: ? ? ?

Step 5: ? ? ?

I did not get to finish the rest as computer crashed and booted me from task - I will try it again this week.

Mobs in this task include the following:

a Stillmoon basalt mage
a Stillmoon novice
a Stillmoon watcher
a Stillmoon waverusher
a Stillmoon stone caster
a Stillmoon wakemaker
a Stillmoon water mage
a Stillmoon water servant
a Stillmoon dirt tender
an iron warder
a Stillmoon koi master <- quest mob, level 73

All of the mobs, except the named, appear to range from level 67-69.

Finally, the task takes place in the zone Stillmoon Temple: Scales of Justice

Did this task duo today with my 70pal and 67ench. all mobs inside were lvl 67; except the 2 bosses and a couple other mobs. Mobs hit for a max of 767 or so. Mobs Do repop in this zone (this task reminds me of Creator kind of) All faction hits for killing mobs while inside this instance are as follows:
Your faction standing with Stillmoon Acolytes got worse.
Your faction standing with Kessodona got worse.
Your faction standing with Rikkukin got worse.

Task goes like this:
Best Laid Plans - Reward = 48 crystals
1. Touch the portal to stillmoon temple (broodlands)
2. Kill 1 "Stillmoon plan keeper" (stillmoon)
3. Loot 1 "Temple "Plans" from stillmoon plan keeper
4. Deliver 1 temple plans to norrath's keeper contact
5. Kill the dark reign contact

You start this instance off by zoning into what would normally be the zone to Stillmoonb. There are 2 "an iron warder" right at the zone in. They won't aggro unless you move too close, but All the iron warders see invis. Kill/work your way down the spiral-stair case then into the hallway and head for the NE most room on the map; this is where the Stillmoon plan keeper(lvl 70 mob) pops. You have to open the sliding door which is usually not there once you reach the NE garden area.

The plan keeper is in the north-east most room on the map, loc is 1226 , -723 or so. He has 2 "Stillmoon henchmen" with him; easily placate'able and single pulled to safe room.
Kill plan keeper and loot plans; nothing special here he does not hit any harder than normal mobs. "Norrath Keeper Contact" pops upon looting plans, pops in room east of spiral-staircase, loc 435, -250 or so.

upon handing her the plans last step opens up and "Dark Reign Contact(lvl70)" + 2 "Dark Reign assistant(lvl67)" pop in the room that looks like a plus sign on map. loc of dark reign contact = 955 , 307 i think.

Lots of mobs in Dark Reign Contact room. Boss + 8 or so. Dark Reign Contact = iksar necromancer wearing leather, also wimpy lvl 70 mob casted mostly Runs at below 20 health so does stillmoon plan keeper. Kill Dark Reign Contact and mission completed.

QUEST JOURNAL TEXT
"We just discovered that someone from Lanys T'Vyl's camp is about to procure a detailed document about the temple from one of its workers. If Lanys wants this document, it must have some value and we ought to prevent her from aquiring it. It is up to you to infiltrate the temple, find this goblin worker, and get the document. once you have it, deliver it to our contact who will be waiting for you in the temple. she will instruct you further.

Kill/work your way towards the small NE-most room on map..

[Sun Apr 02 14:15:17 2006] Your task 'Best Laid Plans' has been updated.
Upon handing in the plans to her this text appears in Quest Journal window:
"Great work. I'll take these plans back to the camp and we can begin to work on deciphering them immediately. Your job here is not yet complete, however. Still lurking about withing these walls is the force from Lanys' camp. As we shouldn't let layns know that we have plans, we need you to silence this force to cover up what you've accomplished here today.


After you turn the plans in the Dark Reign Contact pops in the room upstairs that looks like a big Plus sign.

[Sun Apr 02 15:56:26 2006] You have gained 48 Radiant Crystals.
