This task was a part of the lead-in events to the Underfoot expansion. It is no longer in the game.

This task began with:

- a concerned citizen (in Paineel at +805, +240, +5 -- directly to the right after zoning in and leaving the tunnel)

- Protector of the Ruins (in the Hole)

- Elanna Noraka (near the Paineel pod)

- Surveyor Lodestone (in Corathus Creep at -190, +180: same general area as Cartographer Slipgear)

The task had a six-hour time limit and an 18-hour lockout timer.



Opening with a concerned citizen:

You say, 'Hail, a concerned citizen'

a concerned citizen says 'It is horrible. Some horrible insect creatures have managed to crawl up from the ruins of Old Paineel. Can you please [destroy] some for me? I will compensate you for your actions.'

You say, 'I will destroy them!'

You have been assigned the task 'They Came From Below'.

a concerned citizen says 'Very good. When you have killed a good amount of them come back to me. I have heard rumors that others are encountering problems. I expect that they will reward you as I will if you prefer to talk to them.'



Opening with the Protector:

You say, 'Hail, Protector of the Ruins '

Protector of the Ruins says 'It is worse than I originally thought. The Guardian of the Seal has [Fallen].'

You say, 'The guardian has fallen?'

Protector of the Ruins says 'Yes. My greatest creation has fallen. Now these invaders have spread out through much of the lower levels of these ruins. Some have even managed to escape into Paineel and Toxxulia. Rumor has even reached me of an incursion in a set of caverns off of Nektulos Forest. I need you to [assist] me and kill some of the invaders.'

You say, 'I will assist you!'

You have been assigned the task 'They Came From Below'.



Opening with Elanna:

You say, 'Hail, Elanna Noraka'

Elanna Noraka says 'I've never seen anything like it, _____. These [invaders] are breaking through Paineel's defenses and are on the march.'

You say, 'Invaders?'

Elanna Noraka says 'I know not what they are, but they appear to have the physiology of a common insect. My colleagues and I have a [plan] that will play on those details, but we'll need your help to put the plan in action.'

You say, 'A plan?'

Elanna Noraka says 'It's simple: Insecticide. We don't know how effective it will be, but the best we can do is amass a large supply. We, however, need the supplies to make it happen. If you could [gather] the [supplies] we need to make the concoction, we'll be greatly appreciative. Or, if you just want to [kill them] directly, if that's your prerogative, that works, too.'

You say, 'I want to kill them'

Elanna Noraka says 'It is by no means a long-term solution, as the insecticide is, but you might be able to thin the ranks enough to distract them. If you're [up for it], let me know.'

You say, 'I'm up for it'

Elanna Noraka says 'Sounds like a plan. Go ahead and kill a few, then get back to me on your progress.'

You have been assigned the task 'They Came From Below'.



Opening with Surveyor Lodestone:

You say, 'Hail, Surveyor Lodestone'

Surveyor Lodestone says 'Blast it all! I was out surveying and these freakish bug men showed up out of nowhere. Now I can't continue my surveys. Hey, you look tough. Maybe you could [do something] about it?'

You say, 'I will do something'

Surveyor Lodestone says 'I'm glad to hear that! Now go out there and kill as many of those things as you can. You'll find them to the Northwest of here.'

You have been assigned the task 'They Came From Below'.



Task Steps

Kill 40 cliknar invaders 0/40 (ALL)

Task Window Says: Eliminate the Cliknar Invaders.

These creatures are found in multiple areas:
- Bottom of the Hole outside the Underfoot seal
- Toxxulia Forest near the entrance to Paineel and surrounding areas; also around the orc camps
- Paineel (location information needed)
- Corathus Creep (location information needed)


Report your success to one of the four interested people 0/1 (ALL)

Task Window Says: You may return to the individual that gave you this quest, or any of the individuals most involved with recruiting adventurers.

You can finish off the task with one of the four NPCs who give it out.

You say, 'Hail, a concerned citizen'

Your task 'They Came From Below' has been updated.
You have assisted in the elimination of many Cliknar Invaders
You receive 2520 platinum.

a concerned citizen says 'Thanks for clearing out some of those bug men. Maybe now I can get back to my surveying.'

Reward:
2520 Platinum



Flavor Text (before the task was available):

You say, 'Hail, Protector of the Ruins'

Protector of the Ruins says 'Oh No. It is horrible. My creation, the Guardian of the Seal has failed. Something has caused a horrible [earthquake] that has broken through the seal from the Underfoot. I came up here to see if I could think of anything different to do to make it stronger. It is much too dangerous to assist the Guardian. I would not ask that of myself, so I will not ask it of anyone. If you can, keep an eye on things. I expect The Guardian can hold his own, but one can never be too careful.'

You say, 'An earthquake?'

Protector of the Ruins says 'I do not know conclusively where it originates since it has been reported over all of Norrath, and even a few of the planes. But the extent of the earthquake causes me to believe it is from the Underfoot itself.'

Hello Guys,

Well, this is a Everquest Event npc, was up, and now is gone.
{I'm kinda bummed.
I know people say you where informed about this Underfoot Event and needed to do this Event, but, I stop Reading that stuff when they kept Telling people about the Everquest Fan Fair in Vegas. I don't know about you but I don't want to hear about people that are lucky to live on the East Coast getting another Fan Fair, let alone how they say it was Cheeper to book there. This kinda stuff DROVE me away from Reading that Stuff at the Everquest Web Site's.}It was to be about Everquest, and not That stuff.}

Anyways this npc isn't in game any more, and the "Quest Goal:" wasn't for "Money" like the "Quest: They Came From Below" has States.
It was Needed for Early Access to Underfoot, and a Must have besides a Early Pre-order.

sign,

Nalandt

Can somebody tell me if completing this quest grants early access to the Underfoot expansion? If not, what do I need to do to get early access?

This Quest is obtained from either 'a concerned citizen', located in Paineel
(Loc: pos805, pos240, pos5 | directly to the right after zoning in and leaving the tunnel),
or 'The Protector of the Ruins' in 'The Hole'.

(It seems there are two more NPCs that offer this quest .. see below)


Dialogue ('a concerned citizen'):

[Tue Oct 20 03:08:46 2009] You say, 'Hail, a concerned citizen' 
[Tue Oct 20 03:08:47 2009] a concerned citizen says 'It is horrible.  Some 
horrible insect creatures have managed to crawl up from the ruins of Old 
Paineel.  Can you please [destroy] some for me?  I will compensate you for your 
actions.' 
[Tue Oct 20 03:09:05 2009] You say, 'I will destroy them!' 
[Tue Oct 20 03:09:06 2009] You have been assigned the task 'They Came From Below'. 
[Tue Oct 20 03:09:06 2009] a concerned citizen says 'Very good.  When you have 
killed a good amount of them come back to me.  I have heard rumors that others 
are encountering problems.  I expect that they will reward you as I will if you 
prefer to talk to them.'


Dialogue ('The Protector of the Ruins'):

[Tue Oct 20 04:10:15 2009] You say, 'Hail, Protector of the Ruins ' 
[Tue Oct 20 04:10:15 2009] Protector of the Ruins  says 'It is worse than I 
originally thought.  The Guardian of the Seal has [Fallen].' 
[Tue Oct 20 04:10:29 2009] You say, 'The guardian has fallen?' 
[Tue Oct 20 04:10:29 2009] Protector of the Ruins  says 'Yes.  My greatest 
creation has fallen.  Now these invaders have spread out through much of the 
lower levels of these ruins.  Some have even managed to escape into Paineel and 
Toxxulia.  Rumor has even reached me of an incursion in a set of caverns off of 
Nectulos Forest.  I need you to [assist] me and kill some of the invaders.' 
[Tue Oct 20 04:10:54 2009] You say, 'I will assist you!'


I was not able to get this task from him, because it has an 18 hour lockout
timer, so the last piece of the dialogue with 'The Protector of the Ruins' is
missing here!



Dialogue on handing in ('a concerned citizen'):

[Tue Oct 20 04:00:15 2009] You say, 'Hail, a concerned citizen' 
[Tue Oct 20 04:00:15 2009] Your task 'They Came From Below' has been updated. 
[Tue Oct 20 04:00:16 2009] You have assisted in the elimination of many Cliknar Invaders 
[Tue Oct 20 04:00:16 2009] You receive 2520 platinum . 
[Tue Oct 20 04:00:16 2009] a concerned citizen says 'Thanks for clearing out 
some of those bug men. Maybe now I can get back to my surveying.'


Quest Description:

First Step: Kill 40 cliknar invaders   0/40  ZONE: ALL 
Second Step: Report your success to one of the four interested people   0/1  ZONE: ALL 
 
 
(While the first step isn't accomplished) Eliminate the Cliknar Invaders. 
 
(After the first step is accomplished)    You may return to the individual that 
                                          gave you this quest, or any of the 
                                          individuals most involved with 
                                          recruiting adventurers. 
 
Reward(s): 
2520 Platinum,




Cliknar Invaders can be found in Toxxulia Forest (I found more than 20), on the
way to 'The Hole' inside Paineel, and, according to 'The Protector of the Ruins'
in 'The Hole' itself and in a set of caverns off of Nektulos Forest (I did not confirm this).

Also, these 'new' cliknar invaders con green and light blue to a Level 85 char,
i.e. their level has been lowered.

I was in The Hole and couldn't get the task on saturday from the Protector of the Ruins. Said to go look in on the Guardian, so down i go and watched him fight for a few hours.....On sunday i logged back in and the Guardian was dead...succored up to the entrance and he gives new text and the task....Not sure of the text but after you kill the 40 cliknar invaders..you get an update to tell one of four concerned folks.....The protector mentioned cliknar breaking free into Paineel, Toxx, and caverns off from Nectulous Forrest.

I doubt this, unless they changed it a lot recently. Guardian is light blue to 85, think his 2 minions are grey not sure though. Cliknar were Dark Blue and even con at 85.
