This quest is active during the 2007 holiday season.

Find Zoog, a troll, in the frost giant fortress in the Great Divide near the Spires (/loc?). Santug has cleared out the fortress and turned it into a toy factory. Zoog is located in the main building in the middle of the fortress. Hail him to start the quest.


You say, 'Hail, Zoog'

Zoog says 'Hello Human. I'm afraid I don't have much time to talk. We've had some of our best toymakers turn up missing, and I'm trying to figure out what to do. I don't have the dwarfpower to spare to go hunting for them and really could use some help. Would you be [willing] to help me?'

You say, 'I am willing to help you.'

You have been assigned the task 'Search for Bram Bandyboot'.

Find Zott, a troll located in the same building near the fire next to Zoog.

You say, 'Hail, Zott'

Zott says 'Hello Human, forgive me if I seem a bit frazzled. Last week I was startled awake from a deep sleep by something going [bump] in the night, and I haven't gotten much rest since.'

You say, 'Bump?'

Zott says 'Yes yes, a great bump. Clatter even! Somehow during all the commotion my friend Bram, a toymaker at Santug's workshop, vanished! He was [kidnapped] while we were sleeping!'

You say, 'Kidnapped?'

Zott says 'I didn't get a good look at them. I was hiding under my bed and MUCH too frightened to see anything! The only clue we found was a piece of a map with an X marked near Velketor's Labyrinth, but I'm certainly not going down there. That old wizard is crazy! Perhaps you might [try to find] him?'

You say, 'I will try to find him.'

Your task 'Search for Bram Bandyboot' has been updated.

Bram Bandyboot is found in the kodiak cave complex where the entrance to Velk is located, at -6300, +3000. He is in the northeast chamber and is guarded by two frostheart snowmen. When you kill the two your task will update. Note that when you kill a snowman a new one spawns in his place. This occurs once per snowman. Their drops include:

Frosty Snow Globe
Icicle Cake
Official Red Runner Piston Action 10 Shot Crossbow
Red Velvet Ice Skates
The Fruit Cake


You say, 'Hail, Bram Bandyboot'

Your task 'Search for Bram Bandyboot' has been updated.

Bram Bandyboot says 'Thank you stranger! I would have tried to run away but I was much too frightened by these snowmen. I cannot thank you enough!'

Return to the frost giant fortress and talk to Zoog.

You say, 'Hail, Zoog'

Your task 'Search for Bram Bandyboot' has been updated.

You gain experience!!

Zoog says 'You found him! Most excellent work ______! Most excellent work indeed. I have [more] work for you if you're brave enough.'

The next task in the series is now unlocked.

Need all task stages and descriptions.

Went to get it today and it wouldn't give the quest to me. Did it last year, but won't go this year. I'm wondering if my level is too high now, but that didn't affect it last year, so I'm not certain what's going on. Was really hoping to get the exp pots this year too. Any answers???

I am pretty sure that you cannot do it again on the same character. I know that when the Anniversary quests come back, I cannot redo the quest for xp potions on a character who got them in a prior year.

I've never done this quest and Zoog's not giving it to me either.

I've had to take over her shifts making toys for Santug, and I'm really not happy about it.'

You say, 'missing'

Zobb says 'Yes I said missing. You have wax in your ears or what? A few days ago,
Hailie took a snack break, and just never came back. We searched around, but the

I'd go looking for her, but I'm stuck making these toys. Would you be [interested]
in searching for her?'

You say, 'I am interested'

You say, 'Kanf'

Zipp turns his eyes to you, though it's clear he cannot see. "No no. You're
not Kanf. You don't smell like Kanf. Always eating he is. I can smell him coming
a hundred yards away. Come to think of it, I haven't smelled his tubbyness in
several days. I hope he hasn't gotten himself [stuck] again. He's supposed to
be here building toys for Santug!

You say, 'stuck'

Zipp chuckles a bit. "Yes stuck. Many years ago that fat litle dwarf got himself
stuck under a tree and would have certainly died that day had I not come along
and pulled him out. Do you think you could [look] for him? I'm afraid I won't
be much help with my bad eyes.

You say, 'i will look for him'

Your task 'The Freedom of Kanf Shadowhands' has been updated.

Zipp says 'Why yes! You should go find him! The last time we spoke, he kept
talking about some wonderful pie he'd stolen from the Tizmaks to the west of

You say, 'Hail, Zoog'

Zoog says 'You're getting quite the reputation around here as a missing person
finder and there has been no shortage of Santug's workers getting kidnapped these
days. First Bram vanishes, then Hailie and Kanf, and just yesterday, Santug's
lead toymaker [Gemmi] was abducted in broad daylight.'

You say, 'Gemmi'

Zoog says 'Some rather large creatures made of ice just walked into the workshop
and grabbed her. She tried to fight them off but they dragged her away to the
southwest. We need someone to [rescue] her [TOONNAME]! Santug will NEVER get his toys
made in time without her!'

You say, 'rescue'

Your task 'The Savior of Gemmi Goodkin' has been updated.

Zoog says 'Do you think you could? I wouldn't try it alone [TOONNAME]. I certainly
wouldn't want to run into whomever is causing all this ruckus! Someone must
really be unhappy with Santug! Please hurry! Santug must have his helpers to
finish making all the toys for good little Norrathian girls and boys.'

and chat but I think I should be getting back to the workshop now.'

Your task 'The Savior of Gemmi Goodkin' has been updated.

Father Frostheart spawns on third frostheart snowman death, after hailing Gemmi Goodkin.

He is a lvl specific spawn, so for me he was lvl 70. He is a magician class, and casts a dot called "Icicle Spike" on you.


Level 70 rogue 1604 AC/1606 ATK had no trouble taking him down with a 68 cleric healing.

Cleric did get interupted once or twice from respawn guards, but rarely.

Father Frostheart hit from anywhere in low 200's to 800 max hit (based on rogues ac), average hit was around 345.

You have slain Father Frostheart!

Ummm.. not sure if you read what I posted correctly. look again.

I said reward was XP only -- not XP Potions.

And most certainly not Frosty Snow Globe, Icicle Cake, Official Red Runner Piston Action 10 Shot Crossbow or The Fruit Cake.
