fixing faction
# Jan 15 2004 at 12:26 PM Rating: Decent
One day a friend was killing Nathyn's guards for exp. I went and joined him, so I took some Nathyn
faction hit. I probably helped on a dozen guards.

A few months later I started looking at the loyalist shield quest. This quest needs good Nathyn faction.

So I have been killing Coterie every chance I get to fix faction. I've probably helped slay 100 of these and I am still threatening with Nathyn's guards.

My theory is that Nathyn illuminous is Tsaph Katta and and that he was turned into a vampyre. I believe that Tsaph is still a good guy, as evidenced by the fact that killing vampyres on Coterie of the Eternal Night raises faction with Nathyn Illuminous. the fact that NI is opposed to the average Katta factions can be explained by the fact that the average citizens don't understand that Nathyn and his followers are different from the Coterie and look at him as just another vampyre

Ah, but didn't the Wood Elves take Tsaph away to their realm? So, unless I'm missing some lore, he in theory should be found in a statis of sorts where? GFay or Feliwethe(sp?)

Unfortunately, the biggest clue (the Quest for the Cloak of Truth) doesn’t really support that. Miller SAYS that Nathyn and Tsaph are the same person, but he also says a LOT of things that we know are false like claiming Norrath is just a myth and doesn’t exist… So much of what he says turns out to be conspiracy fiction that I think it’s safeer to assume he’s NOT correct about the connection than that he IS correct. :)

Thought it WOULD be an interesting twist and fun if it WAS correct. :)

Killing the manor guards or guard sonic wolves results in these factions

Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious could not possibly get any worse.
Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night got better.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru got better.
Your faction standing with Shoulders of Seru got better.

While Nathyn Illuminous IS a katta faction it IS NOT the faction on which most the guards or citizens in katta are on. In fact most of the quests you do in katta will lower this faction. Just stay away from the house in which he lives (lived *evil grin*) as the guards by the door, those inside, and the guard dogs ARE all on this faction. So even if you are now KoS on Nathyn faction you can still walk freely in town, use the bank, do quests, etc... just stay away from that house. If you really feel the need to raise it kill seru guards, coterie's etc.

Tsaph Katta is probably Nathyn...

Tsaph is undead now, in order for him to survive they had to take the blood of vampires and inject it into him (or have a vampire suck on him).

That or, do we really know the history of the vampires in EQ lore? If not..perhaps they cast a spell upon Katta and that spell morphed him into a vampire, and then he lusted blood and he created all the vampires in the world.

Perhaps? perhaps not.

I do not think that Nathyn is the Katta emperor. Otherwise, why would he take delight in the killing of Katta guards (as he does; kill the katta guards anywhere in the city but his mansion, and you raise faction)

Has anyone completed the quest that starts with Phenic in Katta, sends you with a note to the record keeper in Shadowhaven, then sends you back to Phenic. Then you ask Nathyn about Valdanov Zevfeer. He tells you to take something back to Phenic, who then gives you something to give to Leg. Falion. Then you talk to undead Valshir in Tenebrous. I have not yet done this step (you are to give him your medalion that you recieved along the way). I am wondering if this quest is listed anywhere or what the end result might be.

Hi Aneena,
This is for the Loyalist Shield of Honor quest, more aptly named 'vampire troubles'. Allakhazam's has a write up on it. Look up the item.

Happy camping!

So I've been wandering the lists of factions, seeing what new groups I may need to make friends with on the moon... when I see this.

They're mocking me...

OOC: (and I don't care if anyone knows, this is just too funny) My name is Nathan Light. I wear a lot of black (goes with my job as a theatre technician) and was teased about being a vampire throughout high school...

Great... one letter and a Thesaurus later, and now I'm the frickin' undead emperor of Katta?!?!


:sticks tongue out at NPC name choosers.

I want exclusive rights to play, well... me... just like Mayong Mistmoore is GM controlled (by all reports I've read).

Hehehe... Ok... Had to get that one off my chest. Back to my wacky theories now...
Something about Nathyn
# Dec 17 2001 at 12:32 AM Rating: Default
Nathyn Illuminious is the level 63+ enchanter in Katta C. He is apparently a vampyre as if you cast sense undead anywhere in the city you'll pick up Nathyn on target. His faction is lowered if you kill any of the vampyres inside the city but outside of the city vampyres apparently are on an opposition faction as killing coteries of the eternal night will raise your Nathyn Illuminious faction.

The quest for the Cloaks of Truth hinted that Nathyn Illuminious is actually Tasph Katta, the emperor of the combine empire in disguise.
