    This task begins with Thanuel Mergon in Bloody Kithicor. (location? - on the Army of Light side)

    You say, 'Hail, Thanuel Mergon'

    Thanuel Mergon says 'I have an important quest for you. We're just starting to recover from the onslaught of the Dark Elf army that pushed our forces out of the Commonlands. We [assume] horrible things are happening to our kin who are still there, as well as any of our trapped soldiers whose regiments were cut off from our line of retreat.'

    You say, 'I'd assume'

    Thanuel Mergon says 'We assume we know what's happening in the Commonlands, the same kinds of atrocities that happen to any land overrun by Dark Elves. We must try to be certain, however, especially when it comes to locating the additional Dark Elf regiments which are held in reserve. I'll also need someone to pass word to any refugees and surviving soldiers that the Army of Light survives, and has not forgotten their [plight].'

    You say, 'Plight?'

    Thanuel Mergon says 'Are you willing to [scout] the Commonlands for us?'

    You say, 'I'll scout'

    Thanuel Mergon says 'Good. Talk to Supplymaster Kibrek. He was the last one out of the Commonlands, he'll know which Dark Elf regiments are still lingering there.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Scouting the Commonlands'.

    Thanuel has entrusted you with an important task, important both for its martial and moral value. Providing an accurate reconnaissance of the enemy will save lives. Rescuing prisoners will certainly raise morale.

    Significant locations for this task for map file (Old Commonlands):

    Speak with Supplymaster Kibrek 0/1 (Bloody Kithicor)

    You say, 'Hail, Supplymaster Kibrek'

    Your task 'Scouting the Commonlands' has been updated.

    Supplymaster Kibrek says 'Ah, finally we're sendin' someone into the Commonlands to scout around. Well, in addition to lookin' for refugees and givin' hope to lost soldiers, you'll need to get the locations of three of the Dark Elf regiments that are there. Look for Dallik's Blackhearts regiment, the Nightblade Halberdiers regiment, and the Painstorm regiment. I lost my wagon and horses to those villains, and nearly lost me life as well! Good luck to ya. Oh, and I'd keep a special eye out for Sil Silverstar; she's Diennic Lightheart's sweetheart, and he'd sure like to know if she's okay or not. She might be in a refugee camp if she's still alive.'

    Explore Dallik's Blackhearts warcamp 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    Explore Nightblade Halberdiers warcamp 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    Explore Painstorm warcamp 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    Explore refugee camp in the Commonlands tunnel 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    Locate and scout the camps of the three most infamous regiments of the army of Obliteration. There are known to be refugees hiding in the tunnel to the southeast. Find them.

    Speak with Sil Silverstar 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    You say, 'Hail, Sil Silverstar'

    Sil Silverstar says 'You say Diennic is still alive in the Army of Light warcamps! He is my betrothed, and must be very worried over my fate. Please, tell him I am still alive and well. Knowing that Diennic lives, my heart soars, and the hope of our reunion will sustain me.'

    Speak with Tallyd Gorenault 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    You say, 'Hail, Tallyd Gorenault'

    Tallyd Gorenault says 'Hail, ______. You bring news that the Army of Light still fights, in Kithicor? What splendid news! We were considering whether or not to surrender to the Dark Elves rather than try and hold out in this miserable tunnel without proper supplies, but now that you have given us hope, we have reason to continue resisting. Thank you friend.'

    Speak with Merrin Beanslinger 0/1 (Old Commonlands)

    You say, 'Hail, Merrin Beanslinger'

    Merrin Beanslinger says 'Hail, _____! It is good to see more friendly faces, and with encouraging news, no less. My regiment of Halflings didn't fare well in the fight against the Army of Obliteration, though we killed ten times our weight in Dark Elves and Ogres. I've heard that Rivervale was attacked. Please tell me my family is okay! Well, as long as the Army of Light still fights, there is hope of pushing the Dark Elves out of these lands. I must remain here to defend the refugees, but please tell Mergon that all is as well as could be expected.'

    Speak with Diennic Lightheart 0/1 (Bloody Kithicor)

    Located at 8, 645, 13 in Bloody Kithicor.

    You say, 'Hail, Diennic Lightheart'

    Diennic Lightheart says 'By the gods, Sil is alive? You found her! She lives! You don't know what this means to me to know that she is still all right! Thank you.'

    Speak with Thanuel Mergon 0/1 (Bloody Kithicor)

    You say, 'Hail, Thanuel Mergon'

    You have raised the spirits of many among the army of light and improved their chances of survival by no small amount.

    Thanuel Mergon says 'You have brought back the information we seek. Thank the gods, the situation is not as bad in the Commonlands as we were fearing. The Dark Elf forces there are not so numerous, and just as worn out as we are. Perhaps we may yet prevail somehow.'

    OK, for those of you who are coordinate challenged, like me, here is where Painstrom camp is. Near Kithicor zone in, south side (desert side), up on a plateau on south side of road. If you are south of the lake you are too far, you need to be south and west of the lake. Hope this helps.

    I did this quest for faction a long time ago and now decided to try for the aug. I guess I am screwed since this is not repeatable. So.... BTW keep the scout's blood if you decide to do aug quest.

    No need to keep the blood from any of these quests. "Sell" it to Tavid Dennant in the Guild Lobby. He'll pay 1 chronobine for any of the bloods, bones, timeshears, and other such rewards from SoD quests. And once you sell any item to him, you can then buy it back for a chronobine if you want it again. (You have to close and reopen his window to have it show up.)

    Note: It may be that Tavid knows which items you've ever acquired, and will let you buy any of them, even if you never sold one to him. It's hard to tell, because he won't offer to sell you anything you're already carrying (since they're all lore), and any time I've gotten an item I've always sold it to him so I can't tell what happens if you get an item and destroy it instead. Maybe I'll go find a repeatable quest I haven't done yet and find out...

    The map coordinates are correct.
    Remember /loc and map coordinates are not the same.
    Map coordinate 2400, 1600
    is /loc -1600, -2400.
