Speak to Nusk Treton on the ground near the Arcane Science building. He will tell you to seek Lenka Stoutheart in Freeport and ask her for the Journal Strongbox, then return it to him. She can be found at an inn in West Freeport, but she will tell you that she dropped the box off a ship straight out from the dock at an Isle in the Ocean of Tears.

The strongbox is found in the Ocean of Tears "pretty much right under the dock at the Sisters' Isle in the new OOT zone."

Nusk Treton judges you amiably -- what would you like your tombstone to say?
You say, 'Hail, Nusk Treton'
Nusk Treton says 'Freeport! Great trade city of Norrath! What a wondrous place! How do you do? You are an [arcane scientist], are you not?'
You say, 'arcane scientist'
Nusk Treton says 'Grand! I remember my younger days in this great academy. I have spent many years of research here in Freeport. I compiled a [locked journal] of my research. Alas. I am still awaiting its return.'
You say, 'locked journal'
Nusk Treton says 'I lent it to an old colleague of mine in Ak'Anon. He was to send it back aboard a private vessel. One Lenka Stoutheart was to return it to me. It has already been one month and counting. I wish there was a young wizard who could [seek out Lenka].'
You say, 'seek out Lenka'
Nusk Treton says 'What luck! I would be most appreciative if you could find Lenka Stoutheart in Freeport and inquire where the journal strongbox might be. I do so look forward to its return!'

You have entered East Freeport.
Your Location is -1124.43, -1124.14, 7.21
Targeted (NPC): Lenka Stoutheart
You say, 'Hail, Lenka Stoutheart'
Lenka Stoutheart says 'Hi, kid! You seem to be a stranger in these parts. Heed my words, this city is dangerous to new blood!'
Bronto Thudfoot says 'You said it, boss! Stay clear of taking sides and you should be just fine, young one .'
You say, 'nusk sent me'
You say, 'what journal strongbox'
Lenka Stoutheart says 'You must be from the Academy of Arcane Science. Well, kid, bad news. I was docked at an isle in the Ocean of Tears when I was boarded by the Freeport Militia. To say the least, I panicked and dropped all my cargo. It is still there. Mostly illegal alcohol, but the strongbox is still out there, too. Directly out from the dock.'

Headed to OOT to get the strongbox.
Hand the strongbox to Nusk:

Nusk Treton says 'Grand and fantastic! You have made my day complete. Here is what little I can offer. Most of my money goes into my research. Thank you.'

Because it's one of the few that raises faction with the Arcane Scientists. And FP Militia faction is easy to fix. And some people like doing quests. And some people like to roleplay.

Box found on Ogre?
# Aug 25 2001 at 2:47 AM Rating: Default
found a locked box on the named ogre that spawns at night instead of the lvl 13 sirens(in OoT)is that related to this quest or what? i've been looking on multiple EQ web pages and haven't found any info....

?? :-(
RE: Box found on Ogre?
# Sep 17 2001 at 3:16 AM Rating: Default
that box is for a pally quest that you also need dvinn's heart and the blue orc head out of crushbone for, put those in the box and return it for a no-drop pally only weapon. believe it starts in felwithe if i remember right, been a long time since i looked it up myself.
Lenka's location
# Jul 25 2001 at 8:31 PM Rating: Default
During the day, she hangs out in the Seafarer's Roost with her Ogre buddy, Bronto Thudfoot. She appears around 9 or 10 a.m. If you are a DE or other evil race, watch it, Bronto can be quite hostile. She vanishes at 6p.m. every evening.

Thanks for the info about making that box appear. I've searched for it quite a bit by sister island, but never knew we had to prompt its' appearance with a conversation.

Lenka can also be seen with Bronto at the barbarian vendors' place in Firiona Vie.
Quest Change
# Jun 30 2001 at 9:20 PM Rating: Default
This quest seems to have changed with a recent patch. Nusk no longer asks for journal strongbox. Now he says he loaned a [locked journal] to Lenka Stoutheart in Ak'Anon. "She was going to send it back by private vessel, but that was a month ago." Havent found her yet as i came here looking for her location.

hail nusk treton, he says some stuff about the box , chat until he says will you bring me it or something, go to efp near where Giz Dinree (something) spawns MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A HIGHER LVL TO CLEAR HER. My 4 mom and ex-player a 5 pally killed the shark for a pally quest mom got box, they got back up and Giz killed them both, she quads for about 15 , killing any newbie


sorry about the spelling i wrote this hastily because i really had to ****
2 Lenka Stouthearts??
# Mar 20 2001 at 3:42 PM Rating: Default
I started this quest, but didn't find Lenka in Freeport. I ran to Firiona Vie to buy a spell and lo and behold, an NCP named Lenka Stoutheart is there. Reference the Cabby Pale Ale quest for Firiona Vie. Just something interesting...

Has anyone tried using the box in east freeport underwater near the entrance to the sewers? There is a box there guarded by a shark, I will give it a try tonight and see the results
RE: Box location
# Dec 26 2000 at 7:18 AM Rating: Default
The chest found underwater near sewers, guarded by a shark is a lore item. It's a locked chest. Part of a Dark Elf quest.
RE: Box location
# Dec 22 2000 at 7:14 PM Rating: Default
Any luck with this one? I have that box too. Where does it go? Who wants it? Why isn't Giz Dinree listed anywhere I look for her?? Does anyone have info on either HER or that BOX she and the shark seem to guard?

This quest is better done with two people. As soon as you talk to Lenka the box spawns and stays for about an hour, but someone else could pick it up. If you get to the dock, then have someone else talk to her, then swim to get it you will have a better chance of it still being there.

the Box is about halfway to the oracle from the dock, VERY deep, and is straight out from the end of the dock.

Collection and Reward
# Jul 19 2000 at 8:17 AM Rating: Decent
You can collect the strongbox without disturbing the shark by using invisability (it does not fade when you left click on the box)

The reward usualy consists a "minor" item (most often an Iron ration)
Lenka Stoutheart
# Jul 04 2000 at 2:24 PM Rating: Decent
She is at the SeaFarers in EAST Freeport next to the Boat Dock.
