Tergon Brenclog, located in the library, wants his spellbook back.

He gives you a sealed note to deliver to his brother Retlon in Freeport who was working with Master Dooly Jonkers.

Dooly tells you he's been kidnapped by the Orcs. When you find him, you give him the letter and get your faction changes, but he tells you the spellbook has been taken by the Prophet in Crushbone.

The spellbook can be found in Crushbone on one of the high level orcs, or sometimes on D'Vinn.

Returning the spellbook gives the following faction adjustments: +Eldritch Collective, - Dark Reflection, - The Dead, + Gem Choppers, + King AkAnon.

You also get experience and an item, usually a scroll.


Newer write-up from Sythik:

After completing the Bugglegupp quest:

Tergon Brenclog says 'So, you have survived. There is no doubt in my mind that you achieved this solely with your own powers. Only a dim one requires the assistance of others. Take this. May it help you in your pursuit of greatness. [Further tasks] may bring you to that point.'

You say, 'What further tasks?'

Tergon Brenclog says 'Not all experience is gained upon the battlefield. We magicians must heighten our minds to become formidable opponents. I see much promise in you, ___. I will require you to [travel abroad] toward Freeport.'

You say, 'I will travel abroad toward Freeport.'

Tergon Brenclog says 'You will go to Freeport and seek out the Academy of Arcane Science. There you shall find my brother Retlon. He has scribed some new spells in my [personal spellbook]. Hand him this note as proof of your alliance. He works closely with Master Dooly Jonkers.'

This quest requires amiable with Eldritch Collective.

Tergon is currently broken, he doesn't respond properly to different things said to him. Which messes up all his quests, but especially this one because there's no way to get the Sealed Letter. But you can still turn in the book even without doing that part, whether you've done Bugglegupp or not.

upon turning in Tergon's Spellbook:
Tergon Brenclog says, 'You have done well. I did not expect you for weeks. It is good to have my spellbook returned. It was a simple task. Now I have news of a larger matter. It has to do with a [defector].'
Your faction standing with <a Faction="245">Eldritch Collective</a> has been adjusted by 10.
Your faction standing with <a Faction="238">Dark Reflection</a> has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with <a Faction="239">The Dead</a> has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with <a Faction="255">Gem Choppers</a> has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with <a Faction="333">King Ak`Anon</a> has been adjusted by 1.
You gain experience!

re: tattered note post
# Jul 26 2002 at 4:42 PM Rating: Default
Off the subject of the post a bit. To the person that translated the note above--cool. I realized what that is. It is talking about the isle in oot where brawn is with the sirens ie "lovely fish" which is the third item needed along with the blue orc head and black heart to get the falchion of the koada vie. All this stuff including the reward is no drop. So worthless for anyone who is not a paladin. The note is the clue to find the box that brawn drops. Perhaps how the first person/people and or strict role players would find the item.
Still a bit unclear if the note has any other use. I may try handing it in to relton just for the heck of it and see what happens. I guess it is of no value except for the information you decifered above so nothing to loose. I already have the spell book so I am not gonna go all the way to freeport just to follow the thread. I am guessing from the above post that perhaps the note that drops of the mobs that drop the blue orc head, black heart, and tergons spell book (dvinn and co) may be the same note. Not sure about that or if handing that note to relton will do anything but like i say--one more piece of junk out of my bank either way he he:>) (assuming i still have it).
By the way the falchion i mentioned is a magic no drop paladin only sword with stats of 6/24. No big woop and i have better but have been wanting to do the quest for some time. I am working on high elf faction anyway. Think i am gonna pay brawn and co a visit--They should be way green at 37 now i suppose. Oot siren isle, before dawn--good intelligence--sounds like 5 am to me:>)
tattered note

well i killed this guy with my lvl 30 rogue and got the 3 nondrop quest items, a note spells book and blue orcs head..
i dont think the tattered note is the same one as noted in this quest.. you can read this note but i cant i think you need orcish to read it.. and if anyone has plz post what it said.
RE: tattered note
# Jul 05 2002 at 12:55 PM Rating: Default
I dont know orcish, but i noticed that everytime you opened the letter the letters inside got scrambled around in different ways. I kept doing this and I think i figured out the content of the letter:
Lord High Prophet: We wish to inform you of the alliance mad in our supply point. We have made alliance with the lovely fish. They shall keep our point safe. We shall see you at the rock just before dawn.

It then has a name, but i am not sur what it is. Some parts of this sound weird, and i cant figure out what it means, so if anybody can please post it here.

"When can anyone [sic] be taught or by their trainers?"

As you go up in level, more languages are offered by your guild trainer. You can improve a language by utilizing points at your trainer, but I would recommend trying to find someone who speaks the language, or try the "friend" method below. Language increases VERY quickly, so points are somewhat wasted on it.

"... increase language skills without help of another or (utilizing) points?"
You cannot.

"If you speak enough, will it improve or not?"
Not by yourself. You need another to speak the language to you, and you to him or her. You can train someone one point higher than you are, so if you are at one, and your partner is at one, you will ping-pong eachother up to 100, which is the maximum. However, this will take longer than if you speak with someone who is already a master.

about that note...
# Jan 05 2002 at 7:39 AM Rating: Decent
Killed the Prophet and found 3 things.. The head, the spellbook, and a sealed note.

Am I to assume that this note is the one that needs to go to Retlon, from the guy in Freeport?

I guess I'll have to give it a shot

go in through zone, go right around the zone with the zone edge to your right. Go Behind the low brick wall and follow it - save pits appear in front of you. The little gnome is in the escond pit in front of you.

Retlon Benclog the Gnome and his pet are in a pit to the right after you enter Crushbone (just follow the right hand wall and enter the small pit after the big pit.) If ANYONE attacks any orc within Retlon's agro range he kills everyone with any kind of bad Crushbone faction he can. Retlon is not too dificult to kill but his pet is murder if you are under level 12. I have given him shackle key #15 twice, then he and his pet despawn. Be careful, as you must jump out of his pit and if you are a dwarf overloaded with loot as I was, it is tricky, and you use up your stamina with 3 jumps. :) If someone sets Retlon off, you can zone or kill him (maybe hide or invis, I don't know). If you aggro Retlon, shout it out so the lower level characters don't get slaughtered!
