In Befallen's first level, you'll find a room with four skeletal excavators. Kill them until you get a skeletal foreman to spawn (/loc?).

a skeletal foreman shouts 'Dig! Dig faster, you fools! Our masters say this ghost is all that stands in the way of the great one's return. Uncover his hiding place so that the forces of the Burning Dead might destroy him and recover its legacy!'

Once the foreman is killed, a ghost named Sir Ariam Arcanum will spawn. Hail him and he will tell you his story.

You say, 'Hail, Sir Ariam Arcanum'

Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'My thanks for destroying these minions of Befallen's masters.' Sir Ariam's form suddenly contorts in agony. 'This accursed place rends my soul trying to twist me to its purposes. My time here is short.'

You say, 'I sense a deep pain within you, ghost. Is there some way I might assist you so that you may find eternal rest?'

Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'Our time is short, so my options are slim, and it appears I must trust you with a task that will surely benefit us both. Will you perform a task so we might destroy the evil that dwells within Befallen? It is an evil antithetical even to your kind.'

You say, 'I will perform any task that will cleanse this place.'

Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'I have this parchment that must be delivered to either the Knights of Truth in Freeport or to the Queen of Neriak. The contents of the note concern them both and I am desperate to have this matter addressed so ask that you take it to which ever of the cities will accept your presence. Will you take the note to the [Knights of Truth] or to [The Dead]?'

You say, 'I will take the scroll to The Dead.'

Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'Then take this parchment to the Queens assistant, the necromancer Xon, enemy of my enemy. I have no love for her, but Queen Thex's interests too are at risk. This details a terrible plan of the masters of this place to restore life to a foul necromancer named Marnek. The Burning Dead must not be allowed to achieve this goal. So that you may ride swiftly with news of this nefarious scheme, take this as well, the bridle to the noble steed that was entombed alive with me here.'

You receive a Scroll of the Burning Dead and a Ghostly Bridle (NO TRADE/TEMPORARY/LORE with one charge of Summon: Horse). The scroll reads:

... all our enemies will once again tremble. My friends, the pieces are nearly in place so that our great master, Marnek Jaull may rise up again and spread the cleansing fire of the Burning Prince. Oh, how little our enemies realize! There are some among them who believe they have the knowledge to properly assemble the masters wand. And they deem mere legend the threat of so many of the masters other great weapons and his repository of knowledge that we have carefully safeguarded until this time: his return. The time is near. Rejoice. In humble service to Solusek Ro, Priest Amiaz.

Give the scroll to Xon Quexill in Neriak 3rd Gate (/loc?.

(Any dubious works - took it down to 3 points above threateningly)


Xon Quexill says, 'The egg is hatching! It's a miracle! Er, I mean, I knew my Incubate-O-Matic would work!'
Xon Quexill says, 'Very interesting, servant of the Queen. This deed has stayed my wrath for this interruption of my business. Where did you find this?'

You say, 'I found it in befallen'

Xon Quexill says, 'It is true that the return of Marnek could create difficulties for us, especially if this has the blessing of Solusek Ro himself. Therefore, I command you to deliver to me any further information you uncover regarding the plans of the Burning Dead, and likewise I order you to return here at my bidding for further instructions in this matter. Now, begone.'

Upon turning in the bridle:

Xon Quexill says, 'The egg is hatching! It's a miracle! Er, I mean, I knew my Incubate-O-Matic would work!'
Xon Quexill says, 'Ha ha ha ha! Oh the poor steed of a noble paladin! Bah, it will find no rest yet. I who can command the spirits of the dead demand it serve you once again.'

In response to saying "I will take the scroll to the Dead", this is what Sir Ariam Arcanum told me:

[Tue Mar 23 19:33:11 2010] Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'Then take this parchment to the Queens assistant, the necromancer Xon, enemy of my enemy. I have no love for her, but Queen Thex's interests too are at risk. This details a terrible plan of the masters of this place to restore life to a foul necromancer named Marnek. The Burning Dead must not be allowed to achieve this goal. So that you may ride swiftly with news of this nefarious scheme, take this as well, the bridle to the noble steed that was entombed alive with me here.'

Note that this is different from what is currently posted as the response text, and it is also similar to what konbu posted on 2006-01-05. The text konbu posted did not imply that there was one charge on the bridle. ("He has strength enough for one final ride.")

Sir Ariam Arcanum says 'It must be delivered to Xon Quexill in the city of Neriak. It details a terrible plan of the masters of this place to restore life to a foul necromancer named Marnek. The Burning Dead must not be allowed to achieve this goal. So that you may ride swiftly with news of this nefarious scheme, take this as well, the bridle to the noble steed that was entombed alive with me here. He has strength enough for one final ride.'

Finally, note that the "Scroll of the Burning Dead" is received after saying: "I will perform any task that will cleanse this place."
