Hemia Skemner is located on the top floor of the Academy of Arcane Science.

You say, 'Hail, Hemia Skemner'

Hemia Skemner says 'How are you? Welcome to the Academy of Arcane Science. Please feel free to roam. May knowledge be your goal. Be you a [fellow scientist] or visitor, I am sure you will find whatever you seek.'

You say, 'I am a fellow scientist.'

Hemia Skemner says 'That is good. I hope you can handle the knowledge of arcane science. Some have gone mad conducting research. Such a person is [Lydl Mastat].'

You say, 'Who is Lydl Mastat?'

Hemia Skemner says 'Lydl Mastat is nothing more than a young apprentice of mine. He went mad working on a formula for deep water breathing. He now roams the outskirts of Freeport boasting of power he does not have. Someone should [teach Lydl a lesson].'

You say, 'I will teach Lydl a lesson.'

Hemia Skemner says 'Then go. He appears near the gates of Freeport from time to time. He is not powerful, but he has a secret. Nothing save magic can harm him. This was the result of an experimental potion he drank. Slay him and return his locked spellbook to me.'

"Lydl the Great" can sometimes be found outside the Freeport gate, in North Ro. You'll need magic weapons to kill him.

You have slain Lydl the Great!

At Indifferent faction:
Quote:
Hemia Skinner says, "How are you? Welcome to the Academy of Arcane Science. Please feel free to roam. May knowledge be your goal. Be you a [fellow scientist] or visitor, I am sure you will find whatever you seek."

You say, "I am a fellow scientist"

Hemia Skinner says, "The word of mouth in the Academy of Arcane Science is that you are no foe, but you have yet to prove your worth to us. Perform a tasks for the great Tara Neklene."


So I'm fairly certain this quest will require amiable faction to start.
Tara Neklene is the Magician Guildmaster and the Orc Cantrip quest that she gives is available at indifferent faction with the Academy of Arcane Science.

Cheers,
Ashwith

Since the release of prophecy of ro expansion, this quest has changed slightly. Now the NPC is named "Lydl the Great". Same faction hits and I would assume same end result although I didn't waste my time actually turning in the book.

you need to do the whisker, note to Rbby, AND the sister note/watch quest about 50+ times to raise your faction above indifferent; which is required to get ANY quest NPC to respond properly to you; 2)Lydl is out the south FP gate and spawns at dusk quite regularly, and is easy to kill at lvl 5 or higher for any race/class if you use your skills properly; look him up on this site and it gives exact coordinates of his spawn and de-spawn; as far as the coin you recieve: look it up on this site before posting dumb questions; it is part of a different quest entirely; do some leg-work before posting inconclusively

Hehe, Finally got 'em

I searched for this ****** high & low but only found him twice. I would cast my spell but he de-spawned before I got them off both times. Talk about miffed. So from them on everytime I went thru EFP. I'd check and see if he was there. still to no avail. One day while busily strolling along, lo and behold, who do I spy but Lydl Mastat. I nuked him for 606 points using Conflagration. I reached level 44 before I got 'em. And the wait made it all the more sweeter. -1 from my revenge list. . . now where was I...

My lvl 4 Wizard can take him with a few Shock of Fire spells. I just learned of the quest, so now I at least know what to do with the book now. As long as you are a caster, fairly easy kill at lower levels(depending on cast times).
this is good for what??
# Nov 09 2001 at 3:06 AM Rating: Default
Is the whole point of this quest to get faction... what does she give you... a COIN?? And what does that do.?.
Hemia Skemner?
# Aug 29 2001 at 1:21 AM Rating: Default
I'm a Level 9 Dark Elf Agnostic Magician who's trying to get better faciton with Arcane Scientists... I killed Lydl, got the book, went to the top floor of the building with a friend, opened the trade window with Hemia Skemner, then my friend Invised me (I was dubious) so i conned indifferent, and i gave her the book, but she said something like "I have no problem with your race, but you have to prove something to us, go see Tara Neklene for a quest".... something like that, and i didn't get faction or EXP. Does this mean you have to be higher than indifferent to do the quest, or am i giving the box to the wrong person, or do i have to do the Cantrip quest first, or am i not high enough level, or what?
level is wrong
# Jul 24 2001 at 3:56 PM Rating: Default
i was using my level 2 monk and lyndl was white to me
here's what I did
# Jun 07 2001 at 11:08 AM Rating: Default
I killed orcs til I was at least dubious with the guards and merchants. Then I started turning in orc pawn picks til I was apprehensive with all merchants and so forth. I think it may have improved my arcane science faction, but then I mistakenly turned in deathfist belts to the militia guy and became dubious with Arcane Scientists again. So, I think turning in picks helps. Also, in qeynos hills, kill gnolls. lots and lots of gnolls. This will bring your faction up with the guy who gives the rat ear pie quest bc he lives in that area.
I'm still trying to get above dubious on Arcane Science faction.. The note to rebby and Janum quests worked really well for me for the other factions.
If I can figure out what works, I'll post again.
the cacti

Lydl shows up at the 2nd last cacti from the zone onthe right coming from the gate:)

Try rebbies whiskers and the note to Janum quest and one other one too in the same area.
