Rathmana Allin may be found at +1200, +1400.

You say, 'Hail, Rathmana Allin'

Rathmana Allin says 'Company?! Way out here in the desert of Ro? This is a pleasant surprise! Won't you stay for a while? I am sure the desert has dried your throat. I have supplies if necessary. At a price, of course. Are you [traveling] or are you [here on business]?'

You say, 'I am here on business'

Rathmana Allin says 'Of course. You do not look like a traveling merchant or a lost adventurer. Someone has sent you to Rathmana. Well then, let's not waste time. Give me the item, or items, and my fee of twenty gold coins. It must be gold. I have no use for any other metals.'

You say, 'I am traveling'

Rathmana Allin says 'Oh, wonderful! Then you must need water and rations for your long journey. Be sure to approach any camp you may find in Ro with caution. There are many bandits in the desert. If it were not for [Ortallius], they would have gutted me and thieved all my merchandise by now. If you have any use of magic then I believe I may have an [offer] for you.'

You say, 'What offer?'

Rathmana Allin says 'My offer to you is this - you give me thirty gold and I allow you to reach into my scroll bag and retrieve one scroll and only one. It may be the spell of a wizard or maybe not. The school of magic will not be known beforehand. The only knowledge you will have is that Rathmana will not exchange the spell for another. You get what you take. Do you wish to reach into my bag? Then give Rathmana his thirty gold coins.'

Give him 30 gold pieces.

You receive 13 gold, 750 silver and 500 copper.
Rathmana Allin says 'Good luck, my friend. May Solusek Ro guide your hand.'
Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
You gain experience!!

You receive either a Rotted Illegible Scroll (doesn't stack) or a random low level spell scroll.

took about 1400pp and 4 hours. went from -800 something to 500+ (kindly) ... well worth it to fix my faction in the temple of soulsek, for a turn in for cleric 1.0 epic. It is waaay better then killing shadowed men. Have lots and lots of space open in your bags... you can sell him the spells he gives you (he is also a merchant) and destroy the scrolls. I ws able o give him 3pp... although his asks for 30 gold ... goodluck!
3 plat works

instead of carrying a ton of gold on you (that will make you stuck if you lose sow or any speed buff), just carry plat. give 3 at a time to Rathmana

Went from dubious to amiable in 900 plat. Needed faction because warrior started attacking greenies instead of waiting like the rest of us when I went to do epic turn-in and fight. left KOS and came back amiable after doing this quest

Paying for good faction
# Nov 03 2002 at 8:40 AM Rating: Decent
I went to do part of my epic when someone in my group who was KOS to Temple of Soulesk Ro got agro and I healed them. Well 8 kills later I went from having good faction (not sure what it was before) to being KOS. I couldn't finish my epic til I got my faction up. I killed the shadowedmen and I gave money. I spent about 1300pp (and killed about that many shadowedmen) and I'm now amiably. Getting out of KOS was HARD and TIME CONSUMING! But once I was threateningly, it was no time til I was amiably. In fact, I bet I spent 1150pp just in KOS and then the other 150pp got me to amiably. If you have the money, I say this is the easier way to go. Those shadowedmen aren't tough, but a lot more time consuming then throwing pp away.
Test Faction By...

You can test your Temple faction simply by /con'ing Rathmana or Ortillius. They appear to be on the same faction.

I have been working on improving faction with Temple of Ro for weeks. I am a 33 Ranger trying to get the last few pieces of my Ivy Etched Armor (boots specifically here). I have tried killing Shadowmen, turning in the rings to Orctullis and paying off the guy in the tent behind Orctullus (rathmana?). I have gone from indifferent to amiable to kindly. But try as I might I can't get to warmly. My understanding is that I need to get to warmly to get the Cauldron of Ro. Is that true? I go hail Lord Searfire and get the same stupid message each time, but nothing about how to get the cauldron. Any secret password to get it?

You only need to be amiable to get the cauldron to combine the stuff into ronium.

I spent over 100 plat there and i am still kos in ToSR. Does anyone know what the maximum cost for gaining non kos faction would be.

The scrolls gotten from Rathmana are "rotting illegible scrolls", which is different from the ones that are to be given to General Jyleel in Felwithe. Therefore, I sincerely doubt that they will be usable to do the quest that he handles, although I haven't taken him one to know this for fact. If I manage to remember, and do so, I will post an edit to this comment, and let everyone know the results.

The 'CHARM' spell you mention is most likely one of the ancient spells or whatever they are calling them. VERY RARE spells that only certain people will obtain. Like only so many shamen (or any casters) will get a certain spell. Their thinking was that if 2 lvl 60 warriors are the same, and ONE gets the best sword. He shows a great deal of difference. They want casters to experience this. They are like... an Ancient or a special spell... I THINK

oh and im not sure why anyone would post a loc on him. He was RIGHT there for me, by the SRO/OASIS entrance. (in SRO of course)

My faction with Temple was max KOS. Last night I spent nearly 500pp doing this quest and am still kos. After that I killed a few shadow men and now am just threat. Maybe this was because I was at max KOS or I assume I was or the faction hit given out for this quest has been "Enhanced"
Anyone do this recently and have better luck

I did this quest multiple times at lvl 6. Got the 'You gain experience!' message every time, but didn't even gain 1/2 a blue bub (did the quest like 20 times). So don't bother doing this quest unless you need the scrolls or you need ToSR faction.
Rotted Illegible Scrolls
# Aug 20 2001 at 7:01 PM Rating: Decent
Oops thats Lozlin.. the gnome in hpk.. he is only there in the day, and at night the room holds a noble. And the Banshee aura is apparently a much lower level necro spell as well...

These things are a mystery to me. They are large face slot items, usable by troll, ogre, barbarian, and the new Vah Shah race. Locslin does not accept these for translation as they are not orc oracle scrolls. Tried it already. They do not go to the general in felwithe either. He wants the illegible scroll, lore, that drops in crushbone. Anybody have an idea?

By the way, about half the scrolls he gave me were rotted illegible, but I also got a Wizard research spell and a 51 level shadowknight spell Banshee Aura, and some scattered enchanter and shaman spells level 1 to 16. Not bad.

this quest is a great pain saver for not having to run to the bank and cash in those silver pieces, got 300 of them around? just cash in for exp
Rotted Ilegible scroll

OK I tried this and got two rotted illegible scrolls. These are large race face slot items of all things, with no stats, what in the world are they for.

Temple of Sol Ro faction raising
# May 19 2001 at 10:39 AM Rating: Default
I am currently trying to gather components for the Ro Armour quests and needed to raise my faction with Lord Searfire in the temple of Solusek Ro. I coned indifferently to him so I could not get the Sol Cauldron that I needed to forge Ronium, the metal needed for the Ro Armour.

I went to the desert of South Ro to find Rathmana and found him in an orc camp right behind an orc named Ortallius.

I gave him stack of 3pp in each of the four slots at a time. You are supposed to be able to go from indifferently to amiably with no more than 30pp but I gave him 40pp to be sure. Went back to the temple of Sol Ro and bingo, coned amiably to Lord Searfire and got my Sol Cauldron.

You don't have to use gold for it to work either. Platinum and gold both work as long as it's 30 gold or 3 platinum.

Give him exactly 3pp per trade -- no more, no less. If you give him less, he just pockets it. If you give him more, you still only get one quest completion. Use any coins that add up to 3pp.

Coins don't go in slots, so your quote about putting "3pp in each of the four slots" doesn't make sense.

# Sep 21 2002 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, I believe he was saying to put in 3 plat, 30 gold, 300 silver, 3000 copper. 4 slots of money types... maybe. /shrug
