|You say, 'Hail, Ayslare N`Vor'
Ayslare N`Vor offers a subtle nod to ____, 'Greetings. I am Ayslare N`Vor, Priestess of the Dark Father and scholar of The Spires. I have traveled far, all the way from Neriak, and my search has been fruitless so far. Unfortunately, my superiors are unable to send me further assistance for my cause, leaving my pupil and I alone in our [search:What are you searching for?]. You can understand why I'm not in the mood for the formalities of a friendly introduction, ____. If you would excuse me -- good day.'
You say, 'What are you searching for?'
Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Well, if you wish to inquire, ____... perhaps you may find yourself of worth to [aid me:How can I aid you?], yes? During my apprenticeship in the temple, I discovered the lore of a lost magical force that was wielded by the Koada`Dal priests during their battles with the iksar armies of Rile Sathir. Though I obviously have no love for Koada`Dal's magics and of course their faith is too debased to acknowledge, I would find the irony pleasing if we were to obtain something they had once lost and use it for the benefit of our Dark Father.'
You say, 'How can I aid you?'
Ayslare N`Vor flashes a cunning smirk and nods slowly, 'Very well, ____. If that is your wish, then I'll allow you the opportunity to prove yourself to a priest of the Dark Father. Venture into the ruined city where Trakanon now resides and retrieve the Scoll of the Dark. The Words of the Dark may be found in the mines and the Dark Invocation you shall find in the city enshrouded by mist. Once you have acquired those three items, take them to my pupil, Shandral.'
Head to Old Sebilis.
Head to Mines of Nurga.
Head to City of Mist.
Shandral says, 'I see that my mentor has gained the assistance she was looking for...' The young priestess scans the contents of the three scrolls and then flashes a wicked smirk, 'And one of considerable competency at that. I have performed the proper alterations and combinations of the important texts, ____. Thanks to your efforts, I've been able to decipher the location of the lost shield, the one wielded by many of the priests that my mentor has taken it upon herself to investigate. Take this lore back to Ayslare, though she shall also will need the Black Steel Defender.'
Receive: Lore of the Dark. (Need uploaded to Lucy)
Head to Emerald Jungle.
Go back to The Overthere.
Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Ah... well done indeed! The craftsmanship of this item has since fallen to ruin, and I shall need your aid to return it to its former glory before we can complete the transition of its current power to that of the Dark Faith. Venture into the sarnak stronghold and retrieve the Horns of a Sarnak Noble, find me a Block of Black Ore from The Hole, and acquire the Sleek Black Beads from a creature known as the Nightclaw Raptor. Return those items, along with the Dreadeye Shield that has been restored to you, to my apprentice, Shandral.'
Receive: Dreadeye Shield. (Need this uploaded to Lucy)
Head to Chardok.
Head to The Hole.
Head to Trakanon's Teeth.
Go back to The Overthere.
Shandral says, 'This is perfect, ____. The shield has been restored and its connection to the Koada`Dal faith contained, though they are not destroyed. There is an item, or rather a curse -- an ancient curse that is believed to have been bestowed upon one of these power-bearing Koada`Dal priests. He who forged the curse was Tatrinek, a sarnak priest of great power. It has been centuries, perhaps even millennia since Tatrinek walked the face of Norrath, but his curse remains in existence, or so we believe. Venture into the stronghold of the sarnak and retrieve the curse, where it is held by one of the royal advisors and return it along with the Intricate Shield to Ayslare.'
Receive: Intricate Shield.
Head to Chardok.
Go back to The Overthere
Ayslare N`Vor says, 'Ah, Tatrinek's Curse! This shall indeed be sufficient to rend the magic from the shield.' The priestess closes her eyes and recites the curse, already imprinted into her memory from her brief exposure to its ancient and nearly illegible words. As she speaks, the shield's once radiant holy light fades beneath a deep indigo hue of unholy magic. The priestess then opens her eyes, a dark, sinister smile stretched across her face, and she offers you the corrupted shield, 'Wield it, child, for it is the Dark Father's power that has blessed this once holy item. You have earned its power.'
Receive: Shield of the Dark (Need this uploaded to Lucy)
