Chesgard Sydwen may be found at -270, -500.

You say, 'Hail, Chesgard Sydwen'

Chesgard Sydwen says 'May Karana guide you. Are you a [citizen of Qeynos] or a visitor?'

You say, 'I am a visitor.'

Chesgard Sydwen says 'Then study and spread the words of Karana the Rainkeeper. May all the storms in your heart be controlled by the Rainkeeper. You are young to the world just as [Cheslin] is.'

You say, 'Who is Cheslin?'

Chesgard Sydwen says 'My son, Cheslin, is currently in training to be a Qeynos Guard. I fear it was not his calling. He is not quite in our realm of reality. He spent too many years playing games of warriors and dragons. He will be doing his first patrols in Qeynos Hills this week. If you are near there, I would appreciate it if you would watch and see him safely through his first patrols. Tell him I sent you.'

Guard Cheslin may be found in a guard tower in the Qeynos Hills at +1035, -875. If he is not there, he is out on patrol and will be back shortly.

You say, 'Hail, Guard Cheslin'

Guard Cheslin says 'Hail, mighty adventurer! I am Guard Cheslin Sydwend and I am here to serve and protect. Feel safe when we Qeynos guards are on watch. We are the best!'

You say, 'Your father sent me.'

Guard Cheslin says 'My father has no need to worry and I do not need a baby sitter. I may be in training still, but a Qeynos guard in training is still a formidable opponent. EVIL, BEWARE!! HAIL ANTONIUS BAYLE!'

Wait until you see:

Guard Cheslin says 'Hail, fellow guards! I am off to protect the travelers of the hills from evil. I shall return!'

He sets off on patrol. If a monster gets too close, you must keep him alive. Soon you will see:

Guard Cheslin says 'Fear not, simple travelers. Cheslin the masterful is here to protect you.'

Guard Cheslin says 'Hey! Did I just drop something?'

Loot the Illusion card off the ground.

Guard Cheslin says 'I lost some of my [illusion] playing cards. And they were the rare ones too! Darn it! If anyone finds them, please return them to me.'

You say, 'You dropped an Illusion card.'

Guard Cheslin says 'Yes!! I seem to have dropped some of my [Illusion] cards.'

You say, 'Illusion?'

Guard Cheslin says 'Oh!! Do you play Illusion, too? I love that game. I have some very rare cards in my deck. I seem to have dropped four of them somewhere during my last patrol. Darn it! They probably blew away the minute I dropped them! I will never find those cards again.'

As he follows his patrol route, he drops four different cards: Chrono Cyclone, Diamond Vale, Ebon Lotus, and Library of Erudin. The locations are +1780, -170; +3400, -940; +4880, +640; +1070, -740.

Hand in one:

Guard Cheslin says 'Wow!! I thought I lost this for good. All together I lost the [illusion] cards: Ebon Lotus, Library of Erudin, Chrono Cyclone and Diamond Vale. Man!! Those are rare cards!'

If you hand in all four:

Guard Cheslin says 'Wow! I thought I lost this for good. All together I lost the [Illusion] cards: Ebon Lotus, Library of Erudin, Chrono Cyclone and Diamond Vale. Man! Those are rare cards!'
Guard Cheslin says 'Wow! I thought I lost this for good. All together I lost the [Illusion] cards: Ebon Lotus, Library of Erudin, Chrono Cyclone and Diamond Vale. Man! Those are rare cards!'
Guard Cheslin says 'Wow! I thought I lost this for good. All together I lost the [Illusion] cards: Ebon Lotus, Library of Erudin, Chrono Cyclone and Diamond Vale. Man! Those are rare cards!'
Guard Cheslin says 'Oh great! I have all my cards back. Here is a little something for assisting a Qeynos guard. And any time you are in trouble, just call on Cheslin, master swordsman. Take it to my father, Master Chesgard of the Knights of Thunder in Qeynos. No doubt he sent you to follow me on my watch.'

Return this to Chesgard Sydwen.

loot

4 masks, 3 hammers and 3 bucklers laters I finally got the Gorget.
The buckler must be new loot, I didn't find it in the database (yet).
Anyway, the fastest way to do the quest is to agro a mob and run in front of Cheslin to the next droppoint.
The best mobs to do this are the gnolls because they run at the same speed as the guard.
Keep an eye on Cheslin because he can still wander off and try to kill some other stuff.
If you play a class that can drop agro, you can agro Cheslin to the next droppoint.

I hope this helps to do this lame quest.
Needed for tailoring trophy: raw-hide gorget

At lvl 81, I decided to start my tailoring in earnest. I needed this "raw-hide gorget" to work into a "leather gorget"...and getting this drop was a real pain. The first two times I did this quest I got the small raw-hide mask. FINALLY, with the third quest and two days of chasing around SRo and Nektulos Forest, I finally have the damned thing and can move forward with my trophy for tailoring.

The quest is NECESSARY if you need this gorget. I would think it may be a similar necessity for the other items as well?

Glad it's over...glad it was available or you'd hear me cussing all over SRo, looking for this blasted thing. Sure hope I don't fail on the tailoring item now for the trophy test.

This was a pleasant change than the typical hack and slash quests (it an escort mission). It is relatively easy, just make sure he doesn't get killed. He seems to ignore Rats but attacks everything else it seems. He starts at the guard tower and does a zigzag all over the place. The drops locations for the four cards are:
West of merchant hut on top of hill
In front of Blackburrow
Next to the lake near Surefall
West of the tower (at the very end of his trek)
RE: It was fun
# Mar 06 2006 at 7:57 PM Rating: Decent
I followed him around & got the locs of the drops:

1780 x n170
3400 x n940
4880 x 640
1070 x n740

As an enchanter, I was able to mez the mobs he engaged, and he would continue on.

Gnolls are a real threat; everything else is not a big deal, in my experience.

I thought this quest was kind of fun...The big deal is keeping him alive because he is very low to go after some of the mobs that he does LOL! It only takes about 20ish minutes to follow him porvided he doesn't get killed.

I was doing this quest with my baby berserker today, and after helping Cheslin kill a rabid wolf, Cheslin turned on me...so I had to kill him before completing the quest. He'd left me alone before, got two of his cards...any idea why he decided to attack me? I checked back in my log, and no, I didn't hit Cheslin by mistake =P

I believe what happens is if you kill the mob attacking him to keep him alive you take a faction hit with Holly Windstalker and gang...remember this quest takes place in Qeynos Hills and even killing rabid animals in self-defence will give you a bad faction hit with Holly and gang..if qeynos faction is important to you..DO NOT KILL anything but poachers in QH..try healing Cheslin rather than going macho on his mob

I followed Cheslin around w/my lvl 8 Ranger and he dropped 2 cds in about 20 mins. Following him is most lame so I tracked him while rechecking tracking for Giant Field Rats cause u need their frustratingly rare whiskers to complete 'Pine Scout' and 'Pine Druid' armor q's (Giant Rat Whiskers don't cut it and you need 1-2 sets per item, 6 items in the set). Kept tracking him with occasional forays to 'whack-my-rat' (no friggin whiskers!!), and tracking went up about 5pts. I keep my curing kit in the Qeynos hold with other req items so have to go back neway. If you get ur whisks u can head to town and get the goods from Daddy-o as well as create some mo-betta magic armour w/stat assist. Not a bad 2fer if ur still working on decent gear, but expect 2 take 1˝hrs+ to get the dang facial hair from the dirty rats unless u get lucky.

That just means someone gave him the card before you did, so all he needed was the other 3.

He starts at the guard tower and wanders from there. The path is pre set but gets altered by what he encounters.

I was hunting around in qeynos hills with my level 5 wizzy and found guard chestlin. He conned blue to me and basicly tanked for me while I nuked things. The only bad part is you have to do more damage then chestlin and get the last shot on the mob. As an added bonus, you do the quest and get a free backpack! Not a bad deal

After delivering Cheslins item letter to his father, all I got was a raw hide gorget (neck) which I sold for 4 gold. Not worth the time unless you are working skills as previously mentioned.

When they say to protect him, they ai'nt kidding. I had just come back from BB loaded down with loot when I saw Cheslin come over the hill and immediately procede to get his a$$ kicked by a scrawny gnoll. If the job is to follow this guy and protect him, it's certainly a full time thing cause he wont last long. One question, what do you get if you kill him?

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 20 2001 at 1:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i once found a libary o erudian card by the guard tower , just a couple feet away . So the cards might not hav a set drop place .
Cheslin's Quest
# Oct 02 2001 at 2:37 PM Rating: Default
The quest is definately lame but even for people who are 15+ level casters or fighters it's good practice in keeping Cheslin from getting killed be every low level monster out there. I did the quest just to try out some new techniques and spells I had to see how they work and how I could fit them into my fighting methods better.

Not the best quest out there but can be useful if you want to just practice a certain method or test out a new spell without putting your freinds in the position of being a lab rat.
