Quests for Barindu, Hanging Gardens

Help Kayin Escape (Normal): Find Njanu Dinari in Barindu (/loc?). You'll need to clear to him to speak with him safely.

You say, 'Hail, Njanu Dinari'

Njanu Dinari glances around to make sure no one else is listening in. 'You look like someone with the strength to help a good [friend] of mine.'

You say, 'What friend?'

Njanu Dinari says 'Kayin Wanjala has been a friend of mine for as long as I can remember and has been a bit hot-headed even longer. A few days ago, one of the guards lashed him for working too slow and Kayin hit the guard! I figured Kayin was done for, but the guard just laughed, hefted Kayin up over his shoulder, and dragged him off. I got word this morning that Kayin is still alive, but not for much longer. I know where he is [being kept].'

You say, 'Where is Kayin being kept?'

Njanu Dinari says 'The guards took him to coliseum where he is being held as fodder for the games. Please, help my friend! I know he got himself into this bind, but he's really a good person and doesn't deserve to be fed to the hynids.'

Now find Kayin Wanjala in a cage in Riwwi. You'll need to clear the room to talk to her safely.

You say, 'Hail, Kayin Wanjala'

Kayin Wanjala says 'Why can't I keep a lid on this temper of mine? It's always getting me into [trouble]!'

You say, 'Trouble?'

Kayin Wanjala says 'Yeah, big trouble. There I was, minding my own business, working on my section of the Hanging Gardens when this big lug comes over and tells me to work faster. I was already working my hands raw, so I ignored him. Next thing I know, he's whipping me! I'd had enough. I turned around and let him have it with a big [punch] right in the face.'

You say, 'Punch?'

Kayin Wanjala says, 'By all rights, that punch should have knocked him flat and I should have been sprinting for freedom.' Kayin sighs. 'Unfortunately, my best effort was met with derisive laughter and I was thrown over the beast's shoulder. Not the most comfortable of [situations], let me tell you.'

You say, 'Situations?'

Kayin Wanjala says 'I was passed from guard to guard for a while before being dumped into this cage that I've been standing in ever since. I know I'm destined to be fed to some ravenous beast for their entertainment. When the time comes, I'll fight as best I can, but I haven't seen any slaves come back from the games alive so I don't think my chances are very good. I'd [escape] from here if I could.'

You say, 'Escape?'

Kayin Wanjala says 'I don't really want to be eaten by animals, but the guard who put me here, Ra`Tuk Hrux Vekxit, has threatened to kill a good friend of mine if I try to escape. I'd rather die than have my friend be killed because of me. Hrm, maybe you can [help me].'

You say, 'I will help you.'

Kayin Wanjala says 'You look like you've got some strength in you. If you can kill Ra`Tuk Hrux Vexkit and bring me proof of his death, it will be safe for me to escape. I hear he can be found in the yards outside the coliseum most of the time. You'll have to hurry, though. I think they're running low on slaves for the games.'

Kill Ra`Tuk Hrux Vekxit and loot his head. Give this to Kayin.

Kayin Wanjala says 'Hah! What an ugly mug on this one! Thank you, friend. I can slip out of here now and know that my friend is still relatively safe. Here, you keep the head. Maybe you can show it to my friend Njanu Dinari back in Barindu and tell him the story. I'm sure he's worried about me and it might ease his mind a bit.'

Your faction standing with Yunjo Slave Resistance has been adjusted by 10.
Your faction standing with Gladiators of Mata Muram has been adjusted by -5.
You gain experience!!

You get a different version of the head back. Head back to Barindu and hand the head of Ra`Tuk Hrux Vexkit to Njanu Dinari.

Njanu Dinari says 'Kayin has escaped? That's wonderful news! I feared he had already been killed in the games. Please, take this ring as a token of my thanks. It was given to me by my father and Proteri Amari tells me there is some magic within the stone.'

Your faction standing with Nihil got better.
You gain experience!!

You receive a Crude Stone Ring. Give this to Proteri Amari, also found in Barindu.

Proteri Amari says 'I heard what you did for Kayin and Njanu. When you help my brothers and sisters, you help me as well. You have my thanks. Njanu was correct about this ring. It holds magic deep within the rock.'
Proteri Amari holds the ring between his hands and whispers to the stone. Glancing up, he says, 'It's all about knowing how to convince the stone that it wants to awaken.' When he opens his hands, the ring seems to glow from within.
Proteri Amari says 'There you go. Again, thank you for your aid and take care with that ring. When the stone is freshly awakened, it tends to be a bit fragile.'

Your faction standing with Nihil could not possibly get any better.
You gain experience!! Reward: Njanu's Ring of Gratitude
