This a long and involved quest, and can be started in a number of different places, but revolves around Qeynos, Surefall Glade, and Freeport. It ultimately results in a high-powered Shadow Knight weapon.

There are four parts to this quest: The first three involve the collection of Bayle Lists, and the fourth involves turning in those items.



Part One

See Commander Kane in the Shrine of Bertoxxulous of the Qeynos Catecombs. If he doesn't talk to you at first, hail him and say "the disease is spreading". He asks you to deliver "Blackburrow Stout" to Barn Bloodstone who is outside the Golden Rooster building in Highpass Hold. Make sure your faction with Barn Bloodstone is at least indifferent (to raise it, you can do the "Letter to Janam" and "Letter to Rebby" quests in East Freeport). This results in "Bayle List I":

Barn Bloodstone says 'Why thank you, kind citizen! Mutt, throw me the package! Here. This is for your boss. Do not return return to Kane without the other two lists. Some other bixie boy might just beat you to one of the other pieces. Go to Freeport. There you will find a woman called Opal. Quite a looker. I hear she works with the Arcane Scientists. Tell her the disease is spreading. She will help you.'

Your faction standing with Coalition of Tradefolk Underground has been adjusted by 20.
Your faction standing with Coalition of Tradefolk has been adjusted by 20.
Your faction standing with Carson McCabe has been adjusted by 2.
Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with The Freeport Militia has been adjusted by 3.

As an alternative, you can kill Mutt Rootlit, who stands next to Barn Bloodstone in Highpass Hold. She drops the "Bayle List I" item, but doing so results in faction hits:

The Freeport Militia -7
Carson McCabe -5
Coalition of Tradefolk Underground -50
Coalition of Tradefolk -50
Corrupt Qeynos Guards -2



Part Two

For background on the second part, you can talk to Runethar Hamest in the Temple of Thunder, who is investigating corruption among the guards of Qeynos. He asks you to find Frenway Marthank in the Druids' Guildtree of Surefall Glade. Ask him for "The Bayle List". When you do, you'll find Frenway is in a state of depression. His son -- who happened to be carrying the very list you're looking for -- was killed and devoured by the great grizzly bear Mammoth, which lives deep in the caves of Surefall Glade. As a Druid, Frenway is forbidden to harm the bears of the Glade, but he wants vengeance. If you can find and slay Mammoth, you will get the "Bayle list II".

QRG Protected Animals: -300
Protectors of Pine: -60
Jaggedpine Treefolk: -60
Karana Bandits: 45

As an alternative, you can do the regurgatonic quest and feed Mammoth the regurgatonic to get the bear to cough up the list.



Part Three

This part begins with Raltur Caliskon in East Freeport (/loc -1430, 570, -50).

The lead-in to this part of the quest happens at one of the possible endings of the Message Intercept quest:

Raltur Caliskon says 'So the great Antonius Bayle wishes to ally himself with the mighty Knights of Truth. How pathetic. It would appear that the alliance has spawned infiltrators of sorts. Of course, we of the Dismal Rage are already aware of this, but I am sure Sir Lucan D'Lere knows nothing as usual. I have a [mission] for any evil shadowknight of Innoruuk.'

You say, 'What mission?'

Raltur Caliskon says 'Antonius Bayle has created a strong alliance with certain groups from four other cities. He and his allies are clearly up to no good, or rather, all good. We require more information. Visiting our fair city is a woman called Lady Shae. We have learned that she is heading to Qeynos soon, returning something called the [Bayle List]. Find her before she leaves. Bring me her Bayle List III.'

Find Lady Shae in the Hogcaller's Inn at /loc 175, -650, -87.

You say, 'Hail, Lady Shae'

Lady Shae says 'Hello. It is always good to meet someone new. I am Lady Shae of the House of Dumas. And what [house] are you from?'

You say, 'I have no house...'

Lady Shae says 'Good. I care not to hang around any snobs this evening. Would you be so kind as to buy me some wine?'

Give her 4x "Red Wine:

Lady Shae says 'Thank you.. Oh my! A few more of these and I will be spilling all my secrets.'

Lady Shae says 'Oh my.. You are so kind. I can not tell you the last time I had so much fine wine. Well, there was the time Antonius Bayle told me he no longer had the time for a committed relationship. Mister big ruler of the world. Make it to the top and find someone younger. I know his plan. I hate him. I will never trust another human again. After all that, he goes and asks me to hold on to this list for him. Well I am glad it was taken from me by that [Dyllin]. Antonius Bayle has no ties to me any more!! Good riddance! Oooooh! I love him.'

Emerald Warriors +5
Indigo brotherhood -1
Kelethin Merchants +1
Merchants of Felwithe +1

You say, 'Who is Dyllin?'

Lady Shae says 'Dyllin was the name of a Qeynos guard who was sent to pick up the list I was holding for dear, sweet Antonius. He left just yesterday. If you wish to meet up with him, I heard him say he was going to stop at Highpass Hold.'

Head to Highpass Hold, and go to the pond near Tiger's Roar. Take the underwater tunnel (/loc -200, 355, -48) to the Smugglers area, and kill Dyllin Starsine.

Dyllin Starsine has been slain by _____!

Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards has been adjusted by -100.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos has been adjusted by 15.
Your faction standing with Kane Bayle has been adjusted by -15.
Your faction standing with Circle Of Unseen Hands has been adjusted by -10.
Your faction standing with Bloodsabers has been adjusted by -15.

He drops "Page 30 of a Book" (used for the Testament of Vaneer quest) and "Bayle List III", which reads:

CISYUYYAMUAT NOMOVOE OPFOHU NISDJEPVT DJENQOUPT

Give the Bayle List III to Raltur in East Freeport.

Raltur Caliskon says 'You have done well. This is the Bayle List. I have heard of it. It is useless without the remaining two parts. Take the list. You must collect the other two pieces of the list and take them to a scribe by the name of Rathmana Allin. He can be found in the deserts of South Ro. First, you must go ask Venox Tarkog what the Bayle List is. He is here in the shrine and will fill you in on your mission.'

You're going to need about 150 into Amiable to get Venox to reply. Without tthat he says: "You have not earned my rage, that is good. You have not earned enough trust from the Dismal Rage, that is bad. Go and find ways to serve us better."


You say, 'Hail, Venox Tarkog'
Venox Tarkog says, 'Welcome to the shrine of the Dismal Rage. May [Innoruuk] guide your every move in life. Here, we will teach you to release your rage unto the world. My priests are at your disposal.'
You say, 'what is the bayle list?'
'Oh. You must be the shadowknight who is to return the list to [Pietro Zarn]. The Bayle List is actually three scrolls with coded words. Alone they are nonsense. Together they can be decoded and tell something of value. Antonius Bayle had them created and gave them to three of his most trusted friends. Of these, I know Lady Shae, his old love. Then there is Captain Linarius Grafe, captain of the outer Qeynos Guards. Lastly, there is Frenway Marthank, Antonius Bayle's oldest friend. He is a resident of the Jaggedpine. When you recover the scrolls, you must take them to Rathmana Allin. He is a master scribe. He will decode the scrolls for us. He can be found in the deserts of South Ro. Now you'd best be off, before some other finds the scrolls. You must get there first and return the decoded list to Pietro Zarn.'



Part Four

Take all three Bayle List items to Rathmana Allin in South Ro along with 20 gold pieces. In return, you receive a translated list.

You say, 'Hail, Rathmana Allin'
Rathmana Allin says, 'Company?! Way out here in the desert of Ro? This is a pleasant surprise! Won't you stay for a while? I am sure the desert has dried your throat. I have supplies if necessary. At a price, of course. Are you [traveling] or are you [here on business]?'
You say, 'here on business'
Rathmana Allin says, 'Of course. You do not look like a traveling merchant or a lost adventurer. Someone has sent you to Rathmana. Well then, let's not waste time. Give me the item, or items, and my fee of twenty gold coins. It must be gold. I have no use for any other metals.'
Rathmana Allin says, 'I have no need for this, Halleb. You can have it back.'
You receive 20 gold.
Rathmana Allin says, 'I believe there is more yet.'
Rathmana Allin says, 'I believe there is more yet.'
Rathmana Allin says, 'A simple code. Why do you even bother Rathmana with such chil'ds play? Here is your translation. That was the easiest twenty gold coins I ever earned.'
Your faction standing with Temple of Solusek Ro has been adjusted by 5.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience (with a bonus)!

If you give this to Pietro Zarn, the Shadow Knight guildmaster in East Freeport, he will usually reward you with a Rage War Maul (you may need very high faction with him to get it - thus you shouldn't kill Dyllin unless you started very high).

You say, 'Hail, Pietro Zarn'
Pietro Zarn says, 'Who are you to dare speak with the great Pietro Zarn?! I see nothing more than a whelp in front of me. Innoruuk himself speaks with me. And now you expect me to waste words on you, a commoner?! Begone, Halleb! You have done nothing to pique my interest, only my rage!'
-- handed in at around 250 --
Pietro Zarn says, 'You have proven yourself truly evil. Your hatred shall shine from this day forth. Innoruuk commands that I reward you with this. It is called Rage and it serves the powers of hate. Use it to smite the forces of good. Hail Innoruuk!'
Your faction standing with Dismal Rage has been adjusted by 100.
Your faction standing with Knights of Truth has been adjusted by -15.
Your faction standing with Opal Darkbriar has been adjusted by 20.
You gain experience (with a bonus)!


It's possible (but not confirmed) that there is a 'good' NPC to give the list to to get a good-oriented reward.

I've read several posts here and under the actual weapon about how crappy the Rage War Maul is and why would anyone do this quest. Well I did it with my Troll Shadowknight not for the reward but for the challenge. Actually the only mistake I made was not getting my faction with Pietro Zarn up high enough the first time I handed it in. This can be done handing in Bone Chips to one of the other evil NPC's in the general area.
This quest was fun and challenging. I really hope someone finds a way to upgrade the maul or a use for another quest.

Look for a Mace of Shadowed Soul in bazaar. I just got one recently for 30PP. 19/29 1HB (you shadowknights do keep your 1HB up, don't you??) That's a better damage ratio than a Wurmslayer, for those that don't know and the delay is a lot more reasonable. You also don't need the STR and STA of a giant on steroids to use it like you do with the Wurmy, either.

Finding Mammoth is a big pain. He pops up then disappears pretty quick. Was the hardest part of the quest. Camped the caves in Surefall on and off for a week. Logged in one day, sat down, and Mammoth was on me. Killed easily, got list, invised, and got port out of there. (Troll shadowknights not too popular in Surefall glade).

Just have someone group with you and keep you invisible while you find the darn bear, disband, kill it, reform, re-invis and jet.

(or save some time and just buy a BABS)

What about Commander Kane?

Ok you get the Rage War Maul from Pietro Zarn, but what if you turn the list into Commander Kane? My Faction with Zarn is ok but my faction with Kane is Ally. I wonder what item Kane will give you.

Opal?
# Nov 24 2000 at 6:23 PM Rating: Default
So why the heck does Barn Bloodstone tell me to talk to Opal in the Academy of Arcane Science and tell her "the disease is spreading"? This must be a broken/forgotten link that was just never implemented, because she doesn't say a thing in response. What a crock.
RE: Opal?
# Jul 20 2001 at 9:22 AM Rating: Default
Opal DarkBriar is also the name of a dark elf in the shine of innoruuk in East Freeport. this is probably the npc you need to give the password to, and not the one in the academy of arcane science. when i tried to tell Opal this phrase, i got no response, but my faction with OpalDarkBriar was only indifferent.

i am not sure if this should be a shadowknight quest because you are kos by bayle and in surefall even if they con indiffernt if anyone has actualy done this quest let me know how you did it please?

You can get a human ranger or druid to help you. Have them get the regurgatonic and turn in the list in SRo with this helper.

FWIW, with help as mentioned above, I completed this quest as a lvl13 DE SK. Weapon is heavy as hell - I get fatigued when soloing, but looks cool and does better damage for me than a BBC even though my 2hs skill is higher.
RE: KOS; also, upgraded?
# Sep 05 2000 at 12:08 AM Rating: Default
i have not done this quest yet, but i am puzzled that you would say a shadowknight is Kos to Bayle. i wonder do you know that the Bayle they refer to is Commander Kane Bayle, not Antonius Bayle? Kane Bayle is often found chillin with the Bloodsabers in the Shrine of Bertoxxulous.

Was this weapon recently upgraded? i thought i remembered it being something like a 36/9 2HB

My lvl 12 Erudite SK is threatening faction by Holly Winstalker. The only way I know to get better faction with Surefall Rangers is by going inside Surefall and doing the quests. Starting at threatening to Holly, there is no way you can go inside Surefall and live to complete anything. Maybe starting as a human would give you better starting faction, I dont know. Makes it hard to get inside Surefall to talk to anyone, though you may be able to sneak thru and kill the bear if you could get someone to invisi you (or wait till lvl 30 and do it yourself).

By lvl 30, this weapon is useless. To raise your faction with the treehuggers just kill gnolls (granted you'll have to kill a helluva a lot of em). This quest was basically made for human SKs as almost all others wouldn't have the faction with the FP guildleader to do it, except for DE maybe (he has some weird DE fetish and compares the Dismal Rage with Dark Elves a lot). Anyway, just my 2 cents. Easiest way to do the quest is make a human SK of the plaguebringer and one of Inny to get the **** you need. Give in the tomb of discord and kill the character with the stuff on em and have the other one loot until you get the sword and then give it to your main character. Or just say ***** it and have fun.
Qeynos SK also KOS
# Nov 24 2000 at 6:28 PM Rating: Default
Actually, human SKs of Bertox (Qeynos SKs) are also KOS to the Protectors of the Jaggedpine (Surefall rangers). And no, killing gnolls doesn't help. Gnolls raise only your druid faction (Jaggedpine Treefolk), not your ranger faction (Protectors). I *am* a Qeynos SK, so just take my word for it. :)
RE: Qeynos SK also KOS

sure you are kos in surefall... then, whats the probleme.... you don't need any faction with em to kill their stupid bear.... use invis....

Unsurprisingly this seems to be another of the evil aligned quests that has been made impossible to complete due to the faction problems with the NPCs involved.
This Quest is not that hard.
# Dec 13 2001 at 12:55 PM Rating: Default
I completed this quest yesterday as a 20 Level Human SK of Innoruuk. First I raised my highhold faction doing the rogue quests here and in Qeynos.

Then I met KANE BAYLE in the Shrine to Bertox, he sent me to Barn. That was easy, one list down.

While I was in HP, I did the murderous Dyllan Camp with a guy waiting for the Testament. I made friends with him, and let him kill Dyllan so he would take the faction hit. (I wasn't grouped with him so we had to wait so I could loot the corpse.) I was forced to do this because my Bard friend convinced me to get good and drunk while waiting and I could not speak straight to ask for the list. In any event, the Bayle list was on his corpse.

Next, I wandered into Surefall. Having killed hundreds of gnolls in my day I was not KOS to the rangers there, though no one would really talk to me. I tried hunting poachers in the caves to raise my druid faction, but in the end it was easier to just kill Mammoth and take the list. I had a 34 Lev Bard with me, so he was able to track mammoth, but I don't think he even had time to get involved with the fighting. A few double hits from my dark reaver (which I got on my way back from HP really cheaply, making the rage more or less useless) and a harm touch later the bear was toast.

Finally, the Bard tried to invis us for the run out of surefall, but he had song problems (thanks to the new exp bugs) so in the end we ran for our lives at top bard speed. The guards still con'd Dubious to me as I ran past them, but I do not know if word of my deeds had spread (i.e. I need to rezone to see the Faction change) or if they just dont care about that bear anymore.

Something I had done raised me to Amiable with my guild in Freeport, so the rest of the quest was quick and easy.

I still have the maul to work up my 2HB, and it hits for about 32-35 damage with my now 22 SK with 104 Strength. (Compared to the 40-45 I', getting with the Dark Reaver).
