Triggering the Task

You say, 'Hail, Sayden G`Noir'

Sayden G`Noir says, in Dark Elvish, 'Ah, _____! News of your exploits has reached the deepest parts of Neriak. If you have a moment, there is a matter I could use your [help] with.'

You say, 'Help?'

Sayden G`Noir says, in Dark Elvish, 'Normally I would not be requesting help from such an esteemed adventurer, but the situation is urgent and the privacy of my [employer] must be preserved. I'm sure I can rely on your discretion.'

You say, 'Who is your employer?'

Sayden G`Noir says, in Dark Elvish, 'I work for Ambassador Rylan, whom I'm sure you know personally. Some important [documents] were stolen from him recently and they must be recovered before the contents can be made public.'

You say, 'What documents?'

Sayden G`Noir says, in Dark Elvish, 'Such documents contain sensitive information only meant for the eyes of certain individuals. If you are [willing] to assist in this matter, you will be well compensated.'

You say, 'I am willing!'

Sayden G`Noir says, in Dark Elvish, 'Excellent! I am quite fortunate you happened to be travelling here and were available to help. Let me know when you are ready to [proceed].'

You have been assigned the task 'What Happens In Neriak...'.

Sayden has recruited you to find the stolen diplomatic papers. You must recover them before the contents are made public.

You say, 'Let's proceed'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Neriak - Third Gate.
Sayden's charm cloaks you in a dark elf illusion.



Speak with Sayden G`Noir 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Sayden G`Noir is found inside The Maiden's Fancy, a tavern just next to the zone-in point.

You say, 'Hail, Sayden G`Noir'

Sayden G`Noir says 'I'm glad you could make it, _____. We need this resolved quietly. You can find the ambassador in his usual spot downstairs, acting as though everything is normal. You should speak to him right away. If you need to [leave] Neriak for any reason, just let me know.'



Speak with Ambassador Rylan 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Ambassador Rylan is also in The Maiden's Fancy, in the building's basement.

You say, 'Hail, Ambassador Rylan'

Ambassador Rylan glances at you briefly and whispers 'So you're who Sayden rounded up to sort this out? Let's get to it then. It's unbearably difficult sitting here maintaining this facade. Since I didn't see what happened to my papers, you should try asking the bartender Belyea if he noticed anything suspicious.'



Ask Belyea K`Jartan if he has seen anything suspicious 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Belyea K`Jartan stands nearby.

You say, 'Hail, Belyea K`Jartan'

Belyea K`Jartan says 'Now that you mention it, there was a merchant by the name of Vesis H`Rugla. He was here for quite some time, though he spent hardly a thing. Not typical behavior for our establishment. Even stranger was the book he was carrying. It appeared to be from the library here in Third Gate. Maybe you can find him there.'



Search the library for Vesis H`Rugla or evidence of him 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Pick up a "Library Book", ground spawn on a table in the city's library (/loc 900, -1320, -65).

As you pick up the book, you notice it falls open to a specific page.



Interrogate Braynn K`Jartan regarding the stolen documents 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Braynn K`Jartan is found to the north, across the bridge. He hits for a max ~15,500; summons when damaged; and is immune to mez/stun/root. DPS him to 20% for the update.

Braynn K`Jartan says 'Ow ow, that's enough! I'll tell you what you want to know. I tied the documents to a fish in the lake here so they couldn't be found easily. You'll have to catch the fish if you want to get them back.'

Braynn K`Jartan slips into the shadows as he says 'Good luck with that!'



Recover the documents by fishing 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Hopefully, you brought a fishing pole and bait with you (why wouldn't you think to do that?). If not, say "leave" to Sayden to zone out, and buy some from Kinliat Bloodwalker in Nektulos (north of the starting NPC). Don't bother trying to use the regular zone lines; they are not functional.

Warning: Upon successfully obtaining the documents through fishing (at the same location where you found Braynn K`Jartan), three mobs spawn and auto-aggro your entire group.

You caught Diplomatic Papers!

Jehana N`Mar says 'I'll be taking those documents, thank you.'

Jehana N`Mar says 'Come! Let me flay your skin!'



Kill Jehana N`Mar and her thugs 0/3 (Neriak Third Gate)

Search the ambushers for items of interest 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

Jehana N`Mar hits for a max ~14,500 and is immune to mez/root/stun. The two "a neriak thug" hit for a max ~12,500 and are susceptible to mez/root/stun.

Loot the Crumpled Scrap of Paper from Jehana's corpse. It reads:

I'll be waiting in the Cuisine Excelsior for my delivery.
-Denat C`Luzz



Meet with Denat C`Luzz and inquire about her interest in the documents 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

You say, 'Hail, Denat C`Luzz'

Denat C`Luzz says 'Well now, you aren't who I was expecting to meet here. So you want to know why? Revenge and embarrassment! I was his favorite for years at the Maiden's Fancy. Then recently he threw me away for a new dancer! I don't take being spurned lightly, so I'll reward you handsomely if you turn over the documents.'



Deliver the documents to either Ambassador Rylan or Denat C`Luzz 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

If you hand in the documents to Denat C`Luzz, you see:

Denat C`Luzz laughs richly 'Thank you for your assistance on this matter. My payment as promised.'
You receive 100 platinum.

If you hand them in to Ambassador Rylan, you see:

? ? ?



Speak to Ambassador Rylan 0/1 (Neriak Third Gate)

If you handed in the documents to the Ambassador as originally asked, this hail will complete the task, and you'll see:

? ? ?

If you betrayed him by turning them in to Denat C`Luzz, he will aggro upon hail (zonewide auto-aggro on entire group, but aggro can be faded in which case he'll stay idle). He hits for a max ~20,000; casts "Sanction"; and needs to be killed to complete the task.

Ambassador Rylan shouts 'You did what?! I'll destroy you!'
Ambassador Rylan says 'Prepare to die!'

Sanction: Single Target, Magic (-850)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 45437

_____ has been slain by Ambassador Rylan!
Ambassador Rylan says 'Hardly a worthy adversary. A member of the Indigo Brotherhood deserves a much better opponent.'

Ambassador Rylan has been slain by _____!
Ambassador Rylan's corpse says 'Start digging your grave. The Indigo Brotherhood shall find you.'


Rewards:
250 platinum
