You say, 'Hail, Councilmember Ithakis'

Councilmember Ithakis regards you with a condescending glare. 'What is you want, ______? As the first-born of [Atathus] and a member of the council, I have much responsibility. I have no time for trivial matters.'

You say, 'Who is Atathus?'

Councilmember Ithakis says 'That is Lord Atathus to you, weakling! How dare you use such a familiar tone. He would singe your hide if he caught wind of your arrogant error. You're quite lucky that I don't do it myself. I think I would relish practicing the lord's true [arts] upon you.'

You say, 'What arts?'

Councilmember Ithakis says 'Why, the arts of war and the destructive power of fire, of course. I sense you may have an interest in these arts or perhaps it is merely my expectation that you should. In either case, I'd be glad to show you the ways of Atathus so you may better yourself and protect dragonkind someday with what you have learned. Would you take on this great [challenge]?'

You say, 'What challenge?'

Councilmember Ithakis says 'First, speak to the Quartermaster to learn the ways of combat and strategy. He will also give you a rare gift of magical fire. To learn the value of weaponry, talk to Smithy Drawlyn to learn to craft a sword using the fires of the city's great Forge of the Forgotten. And, to learn the way of my lord's mystical flame, you must light this torch to show your teachers that I light your way. The Quartermaster will also teach you to light this torch which you must return to me. If you ask another to do it for you, I will know and you will not want to feel my displeasure bring fire to your skin.'

You have been assigned the task 'Ithakis' Challenge'.

Receive Torch of the Red Lord.

Speak with Quartermaster Thatun.

The Quartermaster can be found around the practice dummies on the 2nd floor. /loc is -1310, -1100, 43.

You say, 'Hail, Quartermaster Thatun.'

Quartermaster Thatun says, 'I see you carry the Torch of the Red Lord on your person. As instructed, I will brief you in the ways of war. First, you must learn your opponent's form and how your weapons and magic feel against it. You may train in my hall to improve your skill if you choose.
Then you must learn, over many battles, to anticipate your enemy's actions and be sure your reactions to them are true. Then, and only then, will you begin to understand the value of a calm and determined mind. Panic is death. Too quick to react is also death. Wits and foresight are all that will save you when you are faced with multiple dangers. Do you [understand] what I tell you?'

You say, 'I understand'

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Quartermaster Thatun says, 'Good. I have no time to teach you all things but rest assured that most of it is within you, raging to be set free. You must learn to unleash it. Ithakis may very well ask you to recall what I've taught you. Take this rare gift, a single flame of the Red Lord's breath. As I pass it to you, I bind it so that only you may use it. Take this box too. You will open this box of the winged lords and place the Red Lord's breath and torch into it and fasten it tightly. You will find that through a dragon's magic, when you open it, the torch will become lit and stay lit forever. To prove you've listened fully, you must go destroy one of my training dummies, if you can. Then, make haste to the smithy!'

Receive Breath of the Red Lord and Flame-Sealed Box.

Destroy a training dummy

Go destroy one of the training dummies in the room.

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Light the Torch of the Red Lord

Combine the torch and flame in the sealed box to produce a Burning Torch of the Red Lord.

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Speak with Smithy Drawlyn

Smithy Drawlyn is with the rest of the blacksmiths on the second floor (location -1110, -1510, 13).

You say, 'Hail, Smithy Drawlyn'

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Smithy Drawlyn says, 'Ah, I feel the power of Atathus' fire about you. I've had plenty of time to get my hammer familiar with weapons and I can guide you on how to craft a simple blade. Take this mold, tin and water. Go over to the Forge of the Forgotten and combine the items I gave you. Give it over to me when you are done and I will inspect your work.'

Receive Flametouched Ore, Water Flask, and a Ceremonial Sword Mold.

The Forge of the Forgotten is the small forge farthest to the left of
Smithy Drawlyn. Click on the forge, and then click on Experiment. Put all three items in the forge and hit combine. This produces a Flametouched Ceremonial Sword.


Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Give the sword to Smithy Drawlyn.

Smithy Drawlyn says, 'Very well done! It would seem you are a natural. Ithakis will be satisfied. Move along now. There might be more I could teach you, but now is not the time. Best if you return to Ithakis. He does not like to be kept waiting, especially by those who wish to gain his favor. Take this note to him.'

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has been updated.

Return to the council chamber and hail Ithakis again.

Ithakis says, 'This day has surely brought me a surprise. To say I'm pleased would be greatly overstating my mood, but I will say you've done more than I first thought you could. You ought to wield the power of fire with pride as you stride into war, as you surely must. I now grant you the
honor of addressing my father. While he may speak to you as you have my approval, how he will deal with you is of his own choosing. You dare not be a fool about Atathus, lest you be irreparably burned.'

Your task "Ithakis' Challenge" has now been updated.

Your elementary understanding of the ways of battle and fire have appeased Ithakis and he has granted you the honor of speaking with Atathus, the great red dragon.

By destroy a target dummy, he means hit it with your weapons. Using spells is not affective... at least not for this necro.

You say, 'Hail, Atathus the Red Lord'

Atathus the Red Lord says 'Vasha, Rothga. As feeble as you are, I trust you have come to feel the flames burning your blood? As a drakkin of fire, you have much to prove before I will admit you are a child of mine. Your life will be consumed with fire and learning how to best your opponents with strategy in battle. Only by succeeding in tasks I give you will you come closer to the honor of calling me your father and I will also grant you the power of fire. Do you believe you will [succeed]?'

You say, 'succeed'

Atathus the Red Lord says 'Your self-assuredness is certainly fitting, though likely misplaced. Down in the Hollow, there is a rather devious spider known as The Hollows Widow. All you will have to guard you is your wits. Consider this a test to see how well you do in your infancy. Think fast and do well, or you will find yourself a useless bloody heap.'

You have been assigned the task 'Strengthening the Blood'.

I can't be sure as I haven't tried it. But I bet you can go into your quest journal, remove the quest then hail Ithakis again and just start it over.
