You can get this quest from Star Stealing Sage on the east side of the zone, almost due east of the entrance of Aalishai.

You say, 'Hail, Star Stealing Sage'

Star Stealing Sage shakes his head, glancing at his guards.

3 Guards are around this NPC and once killed the NPC can talk to you.

You say, 'Hail, Star Stealing Sage'

Star Stealing Sage says, 'Hello, mortal. Do not harm me, I am already a [prisoner] here. You gain nothing by killing me.'

You say, 'prisoner'

Star Stealing Sage says, 'I fell in battle and was captured. Though I am a failure, I have been pondering the reason for my failure. Why is it that we battle? All know the risks. What is there to gain that is so valuable when compared to that risk? I must wonder [why] it is that we battle.'

You say, 'why'

Star Stealing Sage says, 'There must have been a reason to form such a contract. I would know the reason. You, who have passed the Trails of Smoke, must understand how things are done. Perhaps you [could] discover this for me. Why is it that we fight?'

You say, 'could'

You have been assigned the task 'Prisoner's Dilemma'.

Star Stealing Sage says, 'That would be a great thing, such knowledge. Perhaps that would make my [imprisonment] more tolerable.'

  1. Kill messengers and Loot 3 LORE items

    Task Window: ?

    A furtive messenger
    --You have looted a Leather Messenger Case
    Your task 'Prisoner's Dilemma' has been updated.

  2. Then find a mob named Blazing Battleworn Eyes

    Task Window: ?

    You say, 'Hail, Blazing Battleworn Eyes'

    Blazing Battleworn Eyes says, 'Be gone, mortal. I have nothing to discuss with you. Go or there shall be a [reckoning] between us.'

    You say, 'reckoning'

    Blazing Battleworn Eyes says, 'Well, then die!'

    Blazing Battleworn Eyes says, 'Trespass on our claim means death!'

    Bring him down to 9%.

    You say, 'if you agree to tell us more we will let you go'

    Your task 'Prisoner's Dilemma' has been updated.

    Blazing Battleworn Eyes says, 'Acceptable. I do not know much, unfortunately for you. I have instructions about when and where each battle is to occur, but this is fairly common knowledge. All my soldiers know this. There is, however, one order that I have been given. I have been told to ensure the death of one called Great Sky Ocean, should she appear on the battlefield. This is stipulated as acceptable in the contract. I also know that the contract has been countersigned by both Moon Serf of the Harmonious Heavens and Heart of Flawless Brass, as that must be true for something like a war to be executed. How or why they did so, I do not know.'

  3. Hand in the 3 Leather Messenger Case to Star Stealing Sage

    Task Window: ?

    Your task 'Prisoner's Dilemma' has been updated.

    Star Stealing Sage peers at the notes you have given him. 'Fascinating. These messages appear to indicate that the war was decreed by a contract between two powerful beings and that the leaders of the djinn and efreeti armies have to honor it. What this Blazing Battleworn Eyes said indicates little, but did name Great Sky Ocean. I do not know her personally, but it seems that she should be warned. It may also be true that she knows something useful.'

  4. Talk to Great Sky Ocean in Stratos to finish

    Task Window: ?

    You say, 'Hail, Great Sky Ocean'

    Your task 'Prisoner's Dilemma' has been updated.

    Great Sky Ocean says, 'What? Well, I am unsurprised. Heart of Flawless Brass has never forgiven me for proving to her that I am a far better singer and poet than she. It was a formal contest and the Udex showed no doubt that I proved the better that day. The question is, is she petty enough to begin a war to get revenge upon me. I believe so, though why she would think that I would volunteer for battle, or be ordered to it, I do not know. War is not a skill I have ever tried to be good at. I do thank you for your information, mortal. I will certainly avoid the battle now. However, if you seek to end this war as this Star Stealing Sage wishes, well, I may have good [news].'

We need all dialogue, locations, related NPC's, and etc..
