|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This expedition (1-6 players) begins with Eldros Danmor in Nedaria's Landing. He's at about 300, 1600, 50 (the south dock).
You say, 'Hail, Eldros Danmor'
Eldros Danmor says 'Well met, _____. I've recently been appointed as an ambassador of sorts to Taelosians who wish to visit our bountiful shores. It is my duty to ensure that visiting Taelosians are looked after and kept safely away from the greedy intentions of our less savory Norrathian cousins. It's not expected that many will undertake the journey, but we have had one [Taelosian] visit our shores recently.'
You say, 'What Taelosian?'
Eldros Danmor says 'Her name is Nideno Eliagy. She is an elder within her community, an Undari as they are known. Nideno has come to our shores in the hopes that she can teach us more about her people. She has brought with her the means to transport others to a [temple] deep in the mountains of Taelosia.'
You say, 'What temple?'
Eldros Danmor says 'Nideno refers to the temple simply as the Forgotten Halls. On the surface, it appears to be a place where Harindi, those Taelosian skilled in the ways of geomancy, are taught their craft. I believe the Forgotten Halls holds a much deeper meaning for the Taelosian people, though. Nideno has offered access to the Forgotten Halls to us so that we may see the beauty of an ancient Taelosian temple unscathed by the ravages of the Muramites. In the interest of security, she has asked that anyone [interested in visiting] the Forgotten Halls speak to me first so that I may give them my blessing.'
You say, 'I am interested in visiting'
Eldros Danmor says 'Nideno is staying in the cave on the other side of the river. The many wooden structures near here made her nervous and she thought she would feel more at home surrounded by the earth. Go to her with my blessing and may your journey to The Forgotten Halls prove enlightening.'
The Forgotten Halls is now available to you.
In the northeastern part of Nedaria's Landing, you'll find a bear cave inside which is Nideno Eliagy (about 1550, -645).
You say, 'Hail, Nideno Eliagy'
Nideno Eliagy says 'Greetings, traveler. This is a beautiful land you have here. . .very different from [what I am used to]. You must thank the gods daily for the bounty they have bestowed upon you.'
You say, 'What are you used to?'
Nideno Eliagy says 'Since the coming of the Muramites, my land has been broken and defiled. Taelosia was never a lush land. It could be hostile to the unwary, but it was once [beautiful] in its own way.'
You say, 'Beautiful?'
Nideno Eliagy says 'Although the army of Mata Muram has defiled our cities, there are still places that their claws do not yet reach. . .places they do not know exist. If the Wayfarers hadn't come to Taelosia when they did, I'm sure the Muramites would have found these hidden locations as well, but thankfully they are too busy with their own defense now to worry about enslaving the last of my people. One of these places is an old temple that we refer to as the [Forgotten Halls]. The elders have decided to allow outsiders into the Forgotten Halls in the hopes that you will understand better the plight of the Taelosian people once you see the unblemished beauty of an ancient Taelosian temple.'
You say, 'The Forgotten Halls?'
Nideno Eliagy says 'I sense that you come with the blessing of Eldros Danmos. I will ask the stones to open a passage to the Forgotten Halls.'
Nideno Eliagy turns to the nearby stone and begins to chant. She speaks in soft tones, calling upon the spirit of the stone for passage to the hidden lands of Taelosia. As she chants, the stone begins to glow softly and for a moment a low grumbling can be heard from within the rock as it answers Nideno in its own way.
Nideno Eliagy says 'The spirit of the stone has agreed to take you to the Forgotten Halls. There will be another there who can return you here when you are through. Go now and feast your eyes upon the lost beauty of Taelosia. May it light a fire within your heart.'
Click the nearby stone to port in.
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Forgotten Halls.
This is similar to the Lost Dungeons of Norrath zones in that mob levels scale according to average group level (up to Level 65?). With a full group of Level 70s, you can expect mobs to hit for a max ~500 and drop 15-20pp each.
This is a simple exp zone (no special items or kill targets aside from regular mobs and commonly found item drops) and has a 6-hour time limit with no lockout.
Golems and Taelosians are on Nihil faction (you won't be kill-on-sight unless you've previously ruined your Nihil faction).
Bats, rats, and earthen rejects are on no faction and are not KOS (indifferent).
Whenever you want to leave, speak with the Harindi guide at the zone-in:
You say, 'Hail, a harindi guide'
a harindi guide says 'Welcome to the Forgotten Halls. Many Taelosians make pilgrimages to these ancestoral halls to learn the secrets of geomancy or simply to bask in the splendor of the ancient architecture. Enjoy your stay here and please be respectful of your surroundings. When you are [ready to leave], let me know and I will return you to where you came from.'
You say, 'Ready to leave!'
