|The Marsingers are located just north of the Wizard spires in Greater Faydark.
You say, 'Hail, Seana Marsinger'
Seana Marsinger says 'Hello, my name is Seana Marsinger. I am here representing my loyalty to the League of Antonican Bards. It matters not to me whether you support the League or loathe it; propaganda is not my objective. Everyone must find their own truths in this life path. So says Quellious. To business then, are you [familiar with the Plane of Hate?]'
You say, 'I am familiar with the Plane of Hate.'
Seana Marsinger says 'Good, I need someone that has a bit of an eye for how things should look up there. My brother and I have been studying Innoruuk and his intricate dealings for years. Being raised in New Tanaan may lend us certain neutrality towards all people, yet the values our parents have instilled in us do not allow us to let him go unwatched. In fact, I have begun to believe that my paranoia may prove useful not only to the League, but to the Citizens of Tranquility and New Tanaan itself as well. We have received a simple [piece of intelligence] that may conceivably upset the entire balance of the Pantheon and have most dire repercussions here in Norrath.'
You say, 'What piece of intelligence?'
Seana Marsinger says 'An old friend of our father's in Qeynos, Jusean Evanesque, has been very busy sorting out the information that is coming to him in droves. The first clue came from Kardin Nillic in Gunthak, and then in bits and pieces from many travelers moving through Qeynos. Piracy on the seas has grown, and somehow the Broken Skull Clan has gained power that should have been out of their grasp. Our informants there say that it can only come from Innoruuk. I am afraid that the Plane itself has shifted with this power. I do not believe that we will be able to uncover all that we need [alone] in time to warn people of the dangers.'
You say, 'Alone?'
Seana Marsinger says 'Our parents are back in Qeynos assisting Jusean with all that needs to be verified and ensuring that the League's network contacts are all still viable. They will need to stay there in case we must get the word out quickly. I do not believe that any of the residents of Tanaan would approve of our little quest, and would view it as biased. Thus we are here alone. Does this type of project [interest] you?'
You say, 'Yes.'
Seana Marsinger says 'Please speak to my brother, Stefan, for further information. He will be your primary contact for any tasks you perform for us in Innoruuk's realm. The League of Antonican Bards and I commend you for your efforts.'
You say, 'Hail, Stefan Marsinger.'
Stefan Marsinger says 'Salutations, my name is Stefan Marsinger. My sister Seana and I are here on a mission for the League of Antonican Bards. Are you [interested] in assisting us in our task?'
You say, 'I am interested.'
Stefan Marsinger takes a moment to size you up. 'You appear to be a practitioner of pure magic, am I correct?'
You say, 'You are correct.'
Stefan Marsinger says 'I believe it is safest if you study those who have similar interests as yourself. Travel to the Plane of Hate and observe the revenant, the ashenbone drake, and the loathing lich. They seem to be the main practitioners of your art in the least dangerous area. My interaction with these creatures has been mostly at a distance, and I am not as familiar with them as I would like. If you survive long enough to uncover some type of signet that proves you have been studying these creatures, and truly wish to aid with this cause, bring it to me along with some vampire dust and a diamond. I can craft you a protective item and may have some further work for you to do.'
The Minor Signet of the Dark Sorcerer drops somewhat randomly in the Plane of Hate. Turn it in along with some Vampire Dust (off revenants in Hate) and a Diamond.
Stefan Marsinger inspects the items closely before transforming them into a small glimmering jewel. 'That should help a bit. My studies are coming along rather well, although it is still far too early to decipher what is going on for certain. Do you wish to venture further into the plane and do some more [work] for me?'
You gain experience!!
You receive 3 platinum from Stefan Marsinger.
You receive the Gem of Sorcery. This is the lead-in to the second Marsinger quest.
