V`Lynn Renloe may be found at +780, +455.

You say, 'Hail, V`Lynn Renloe'

Before you stands a being draped in more than the battle-weary armor adorning him. In a glance you are able to discern that he carries with him years of hard combat; proudly worn scars earned from life threatening wounds sporadically decorate his body. As you approach, his eyes seize down upon you, narrowing their stony gaze. All at once you feel as if your inner most secrets have been torn open for all to see. 'A new face to the Plane of Knowledge? Come to search for some lost secret of a forgotten god? Or perhaps you've come for the answer to an ancient riddle that plagues you? Hah, no! You're not one who is content merely spending their mortal life with their nose buried in scholarly ramblings. No, your heart seeks the path of a true adventurer and I just may know [something] about that.'

You say, 'Something?'

V`Lynn Renloe says 'Many lifetimes ago I was not the tired old man you see before you. No, I was in fact often called to prepare troops to defend the light. The last time I sent brave warriors off to fight was for the Battle of Kithicor. Though many were ready for that contest, very few returned. Near the end, as we were just about to seize victory, a curse was unleashed upon the forest as the Plane of Hate poured forth and smothered the area. Friend, foe, animal. . .it didn't matter. All had their souls torn from their body to satisfy the hunger of the Hate Lord.' He sighs deeply and seems to catch himself from wandering too far down the path of painful memories, 'But it seems fate has called upon me once more to set the righteous upon the path. Know that though age has proven to be the one enemy I could not best, I shall [aid] you as much as I can.'

You say, 'Aid me?'

V`Lynn Renloe says 'Aye, aid you I shall for though your arm be strong, your mind sharp, and your heart made of iron, you are ill equipped to face the many dangers that lie in wait. Normally your city's Guildmaster would furnish you properly but during these times, resources are scarce and you are not likely to be afforded a wooden shoe much less implements fitting your needs. Yet fate has indeed brought us together for during my travels I have come to the aid of many, including your very own Guildmaster. Prove yourself worthy by passing the [trials] I lay before you and I will convince your Guildmaster to properly equip you. If you have a [group], however, there are even larger challenges I have for you.'

You say, 'What trials?'

V`Lynn Renloe says 'Yes each trial is designed to test your abilities to their maximum. As you improve, I will have more trials available to you. After successfully completing a trial, I will give you a note that you may pass along to your Guildmaster for your reward.'

A task window will pop up offering one (or more, depending on your level) tasks. Select "Children of the Fay."

You have been assigned the task 'Children of the Fay'.

You receive an Elven Bottle of Wine.

Though normally the Fay children would call you friend, the ones that inhabit the forest of Greater Faydark are known to defend this, their home, against any outsiders. And yet here is the trial that lies before you.

Deliver this bottle of wine to my friend, Whisperdell Targon who is keeping an eye on the nearby Crushbone orcs. He is usually found near the northern path that leads out of Felwithe. Simply head west on this path towards Kelethin, the tree city of the Fier`Dal.

Greater Faydark - Deliver 1 Elven Bottle of Wine to Whisperdell Targon

Whisperdell Targon is located at -800, -890 in the Greater Faydark, west of Kelethin, down the trail from the Plane of Knowledge portal book. Hand him the bottle of wine.

Greater Faydark - Explore Camp of Outsiders

Hail friend. My thanks to Master V`Lynn for the wine and you, for bringing it to me. Know that this bottle signifies a journey that Master V'Lynn has planned for you, one that may crush your body and break your will. Yet a great reward lies at the end of each trial.

As you know, this Forest is one of the last home to the children of Fay and because of the encroachment of other races they now jealously guard this area. Recently though, a camp of outsiders have appeared just to the south of us. I need you to carefully scout that camp and report back to me.

The camp may be found around -1160, -755.

Greater Faydark - Speak with Whisperdell Targon

No additional description.

Greater Faydark - Kill 5 Bandits

Bandits you say? This is bad news indeed as I am sure they are planning to attack unsuspecting travelers.

You must return and slay no less than five of them. Return to me when you have accomplished this.

Go to the camp and kill 5 bandits. Any bandit in the camp will do.

You have slain a bandit lookout!

Greater Faydark - Explore Entrance to Crushbone Citadel

The location to satisfy this is near 2279.02, 49.50, -5.19.

Greater Faydark - Kill 5 Orc Centurions

Very good young one. Now for your most dangerous undertaking yet. To the far north of us is the entrance to the citadel of the Crushbone Orcs. I need you to scout that entrance to see what they are up to. Then pick apart some of their defenses.

Kill at least five orc centurions and report back to me once you have accomplished this task.

You have slain an orc centurion!

Your faction standing with Crushbone Orcs got worse.
Your faction standing with Storm Guard got better.
Your faction standing with Faydarks Champions got better.
Your faction standing with Indigo Brotherhood got worse.

Plane of Knowledge - Speak with V`Lynn Renloe

Very promising young one. You have managed to survive the danger of the forest and prevailed. Return to Master V`Lynn so that he will know that you have survived this trial.

Head back to V`Lynn and hail him.

You say, 'Hail, V`Lynn Renloe'
Your task 'Children of the Fay' has been updated.
You have been assigned the task 'Journey to Freeport'.

In yellow text visible only to you:

Very good indeed. It seems that the dangers within the forests of Greater Faydark were not so perilous to you after all. Take this note to your Guildmaster and he will reward you for completing this trial. Return to me when you are ready to attempt more [trials].
You have been given: Note About Your First Trial.

The hometown and task will vary depending on your race and class. Take the note to your guildmaster for a bracer.

My guildmaster Te'Anara in Surefall refuses to take the note about my first trial. This stage in the quest specifically says to give it to her. This quest is bugged.

Unusual drops?

Been running my characters through the bandit camp and have found that some NPC's seem to display another item, just for a second, as their corpse fades away. Can't seem to grab them in any way. Look like diamond rings, gold pins, gem stones, etc.. Has anyone else seen them? Know what they are? Are they worth taking? How would you pick them up? I've tried right and left mouse buttons, clicking, double clicking, click and hold. Nothing seem to work. Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I have a DE Cleric, and a DE SK, the quest giver gave the quest to the cleric, but not to the SK. Anyone have a clue how to fix faction with him, so my SK can do the quest?

If you get the "despise your home town" message, then your char has it's home city set to TSS. It seems all Frogloks get locked in there as well. You have to petition to get your home city set to where it should be.

My High Elf paladin did the quest twice, got the bracers, but failed to receive the Skull Charm

But what happens if you're a Drakkin? Crescent Reach really is your home city.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

My original post attempted to make a list of races/religions who can or cannot get the task that rewards you with "Note About Your First Trial" and the Kobold Skull Charm outside the Tutorial. This is perhaps the easiest and best charm to acquire at low levels (Str: +5 Sta: +5 Wis: +5 Int: +5 HP: +10 Mana: +10), especially when combined with the Slipgear's Gem augment.

There seem to be some odd inconsistencies in who can/cannot do this, however. Just use the information provided here and in the other thread (see below) to locate the quest NPCs and post any definitive results you may have. Please include your race, class, deity and level. Also indicate if you were shrouded. Hopefully we can weed out the types that are not working and get some help from the Devs to fill in the gaps, if any. :)

[Original Post:]

Here is a *TENTATIVE* list of the races/deities that CAN and CANNOT get the task for this quest ("good") and The Cabilisian Trade Route ("evil") quest based on both threads. Please post *replies* to this for corrections / verification and I will try to update this periodically.

OK to do quests ?:
+ Barbarian (worked with level 55 tribunal shaman--shrouded to lvl.10)
+ Gnome ?
+ High Elf (worked with level 12 agnostic wizard)
+ Human ?
+ Ogre ?
+ Vah Shir (worked with level 31 agnostic bard)
+ Wood Elf ?

CANNOT do quests ?:
- Drakkin (failed with level 9 shadow knight)
- Froglok (failed with level 23 mith.marr paladin)
- High Elf ???
- Vah Shir ???

Barrenzin, V`Lynn Renloe and Castlen Drewe all offer newbie armor tasks in PoK, but AFAIK only Barrenzin and V`Lynn reward you with the Kobold Skull Charm from the Tutorial. Not sure why some races can do this and others cannot. Is this an oversight or deliberate racism? :)

As with the "The Cabilisian Trade Route" Task:
I did this one as a Vah Shir. I'm not certain about the Kobold Skull Charm though. I have always done the tutorial and got the charm that way. The best thing I can recommend for any of these Tasks not being doable, or ANY Quest listed on Allakhazam for that matter, is to send in a bug report when in-game.

Vah Shir Rogue - Taruun Wristband

Hey may not be there yet, I believe he will show up once DoN is unlocked. Could be wrong though =)

Froglok cannot do this quest He launches into a diatribe about how Gukta is digging into his profit margins if you talk to him.

The exact text is:

V'Lynn Renloe says 'A-ha! I'm sorry, but you come from a city I know well and despise. The place you call home is eating into my profits! I won't work with you. No way! I suggest you look elsewhere for work'

Im also on the combine.. prog. server

Drakkin cannot do this quest as an alternate means of getting the charm. He launches into a diatribe about how Crescent Reach is digging into his profit margins if you talk to him.

Dont' have a definitive loc because my 11 mage was running to avoid 4 dark blue orcs. Pet pathing sucks in Gfay lol. But, I got the "task completed" as I ran between the centurion and shaman standing as guards just inside the tunnel entrance.

Does anyone know what guildmaster a human ranger would turn his note in to? I've tried all the ranger GMs in Surefall, all of the ones in PoK and all the GMs in Kelethin. All of them gave the note back to me.
RE: Unwanted Step Child
# Feb 18 2006 at 7:58 PM Rating: Decent
you give it to your First GM .. the one you had to turn your note to when you first made it to your Home city.... you remember the note that is in your inventory when you first make your char.... read it and turn it into the GM named in it... if you did not do that.... sorry cant help ya.
Quest Info
# Nov 15 2005 at 9:45 AM Rating: Decent
The location that I was at when I was credited with exploring the entrance to Crushbone was +2287, +75 (just southwest of the tunnel entrance).

The reward I received for the mission (as a Gnome Mage) was Bracer of the Collective Initiate.

I was also able to re-request the bracer mission prior to turning in the note, as suggested previously.
