This solo task begins with Clontik Beardburner who is located in the zone-in area of the Underquarry (location -15, 150, -193).

You say, 'Hail, Clontik Beardburner'

Clontik Beardburner says 'Eh? Who are you? You don't belong here! Well, seeing as how there are so few of us left still devoted to carrying out the will of Brell Serilis, it would only harm our cause to waste effort having you [moved] from this place.'

You say, 'Moved?!'

Clontik Beardburner says 'This is the Underquarry; we mine and quarry material here, endlessly. Stone, precious metals, marble, you name it. At the moment, however, things are in a disastrous state. My stone-mining crews are being insubordinate, the Burynai are claiming the copper mine for themselves, there are Cliknar invading the silver mine, and everyone I've sent to the gold mines has yet to return. I [fear] the entire Underquarry may spin completely out of control soon, and if our production isn't corrected, there will be terrible ramifications for the entire Underfoot and all the worlds that connect to it.'

You say, 'Why do you fear this?'

Clontik Beardburner says 'So much depends on me, but ever since the influence of this Church of Self began to be a problem, more and more of my Underquarry crew have failed to follow my orders! Being assigned to the Underquarry is the highest of honors a Dwarf or even a Gnome could ever hope to achieve! Why would one risk losing the favor of Brell by abandoning one's sacred duties? Yet that is precisely what has happened. I, and these few who remain here, are all that are left who remain dedicated in service to Brell. Yet it is strange, Brell no longer appears, or has not been seen or heard from in a very long time. I may need your [help] if we are to restore the Underquarry to its proper functioning.'

You say, 'How could I help?'

Clontik Beardburner says 'Much to do, much to do. Your help would genuinely be appreciated. I will need help with restoring order in the [Stonequarry] as well as in the [Metal Mines]. When you have completed these tasks I have [other work] I need completed.'

You say, 'The metal mines?'

Clontik Beardburner says 'I have lost so many guildsmen of late in the Metal Mines alone it is enough to make me thirst for a soothing ale again. I can send no more of my own dwarves and gnomes down there; so few are left, we need them to endure if the Underquarry is to be [restored].'

You say, 'I could see about having them restored'

Clontik Beardburner says 'You will go in their stead? What a noble creature you are. When Brell returns, I will be sure to mention your name to him in a most favorable light. Go into each of the metal mines in the Underquarry. You will need to seek out the leader of each of the groups occupying each of the mines, and eliminate them.'

You have been assigned the task 'Unrest in the Metal Mines'.

Brell's absence has turned the Underquarry upside down. The golems and burynai are in revolt, and the cliknar have been persuaded to tear the silver mines from Brell's grasp. Go to each of the three metal mines of the Underquarry and put an end to any insubordination taking place there.

The copper mines have become a nest of Burynai rebels. Go there and stop their leader from turning the Burynai even further against the Way of Brell. Cliknar have burrowed into the silver mine and are definitely up to no good. Go there and eliminate their Protauris so that their activities will be slowed. Most of the remaining golems have found their way into the Underquarry's gold mines, and they too are refusing to follow the tasks which gave them purpose. Destroy the leader of the golems and stop them from abandoning their purpose.

  • 1. Investigate the rebel presence in the Underquarry Copper Mine 0/1 (The Underquarry)

  • 2. Kill the rebellious Burynai leader, Lord Ragarrh 0/1 (The Underquarry)

  • 3. Go to the Silver Mine and locate the rebel leader there 0/1 (The Underquarry)

  • 4. Destroy the cliknar leader, known as the 'Protauris' 0/1 (The Underquarry)

  • 5. Explore the Underquarry Gold Mine and learn which golem is leading the insurrection there 0/1 (The Underquarry)

  • 6. Eliminate the rebellious golem known as Keolyx 0/1 (The Underquarry)

    Copper mines are due east from the zone-in area (the burynai caves). Lord Ragarrh is in the southeasternmost cave.

    To get to the silver mines, go to the large room with the giant stone genari and head into the tunnels from the eastern wall of this room. These are the cliknar caves. Towards the bottom/back of these tunnels are three identical looking open caves. Protauris is in the northwestern one.

    To get to the gold mines, go to the large room with the giant stone genari and head into the tunnels from the southern wall of this room. These are the golem caves. All the way at the very bottom is Keolyx.

  • 7. Report back to Clontik and tell him the rebel leaders have been dealt with 0/1 (The Underquarry)

    You say, 'Hail, Clontik Beardburner'

    Clontik Beardburner stares at his boots. "There are better things I'd like to be doing than sending people to kill the creatures of Brell in the metal mines, but I must do what I can to preserve this sacred place, this eternal Underquarry."

    Anyone have the locs / rough descriptions of where the updates come on this? I've got the update for the bronze mine, but been running around like a mad thing to find the other two updates with no luck.
