Brohan Ironforge is located on a balcony outside the Ironforge building.

You say, 'Hail, Brohan Ironforge'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'Please, leave me be alone. I have such [sorrow] in my heart... I wish to be alone with my thoughts.'

You say, 'sorrow'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'My [daughter] [Tayla] has left and I fear she will not return. If only I could find someone... Hey, would you like to [do a favor] for an old man or are you [too busy]?'

You say, 'daughter'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'Tayla is my oldest AND youngest daughter. That is, she appears to be younger than the rest, but she has spent more years as my daughter than all the others. Unlike the rest, she is part elven. Tayla is from my first marriage to [Weleana].'

You say, 'Weleana'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'Weleana was my first wife. She was the most beautiful creature I have ever seen. We had a daughter, Tayla. We were quite happy. Unfortunately, on one of her frequent trips to the Jaggedpine, she was attacked by a bear of enormous strength and even with all her talent as a ranger, she was mauled to death. I thought I would never love again, but I was wrong. I met [Hurrieta].'

You say, 'Hurrieta'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'Hurrieta is a good woman. She was a bit repulsed that I was once married to a wood elf. She got over that, I believe. We had four children together. The children seem quite accepting of Tayla, even though she is half elven.'

You say, 'do a favor'

Brohan Ironforge says, 'Good. Please find my daughter, Tayla Ironforge. Bring me proof that she is safe. She was last seen somewhere in Neriak. I am a fine blacksmith and I shall give you a worthy gift if you do this for me.'

Head to Neriak Third Gate and talk to Mare X`Lottl in the basement of Maiden's Fancy. Ask her about Tayla, and she will say: "Why do you seek that little scamp when you have Mare right here? If you really want to know where she is, it will cost you. Did I ever tell you that my heart belongs to Jasper?"

Give her a Jasper.

Mare X'lottl says 'Jasper! My one and only love! All right.. That Tayla creature was lost in a game of King's Court with a very important and secret merchant. Belyea will not speak of him but that he was some sort of Baron. He did give me this trinket from his new friend and owner of the half-elf scamp. You keep it. It is worth nothing compared to sweet, beautiful Jasper.'

You receive Klok's Seal.

There is a Half Elf Maiden that spawns in a locked room in East Cabilis, that is Tayla. She was won in a game of King's Court, which Carson Mccabe rigged so that the Iksar Haggle Baron would win. She was taken to Cabilis, and is simply called 'Half Elf Maiden'. Find a Key as a ground spawn in front of Haggle Baron Klok, and use this key to open the door to the maiden.

Give the Klok's Seal to the Half Elf Maiden.


Half Elf Maiden says 'Oh! thank you! I did not expect to hear of my family ever again. This seal should grant me protection out of the city if I am careful. Please take this note to my father and let him know I am safe!'
You gain experience!!

You receive a Sealed Letter, which basically says 'father, I am well, I will be living among the elves now, Love Tayla'--

Give the Sealed Letter to Brohan Ironforge in North Qeynos.


Brohan Ironforge says 'Oh! thank you! Now I know she is safe. My sweet Tayla. Here is your reward, as promised. A hero such as yourself deserves a weapon with which to uphold your noble values.'

Yeah, sure! Just casually stroll into Neriak and Cabilis.
The guards are TOTALLY fine with people from Qeynos showing up at their gates.

You say, 'Hail, Brohan Ironforge'

Brohan Ironforge says 'Please, leave me be alone. I have such sorrow in my heart.. I wish to be alone with my thoughts.'

You say, 'Why do you have sorrow in your heart?'

Brohan Ironforge says 'My daughter Tayla has left and I fear she will not return. If only I could find someone.. Hey, would you like to do a favor for an old man or are you too busy?'

You say, 'I will do a favor'

Brohan Ironforge says 'Good. Please find my daughter, Tayla Ironforge. Bring me proof that she is safe. She was last seen somewhere in Neriak. I am a fine blacksmith and I shall give you a worthy gift if you do this for me.'

You say, 'Hail, Mare X`Lottl'

Mare X`Lottl says 'Hello there, sweetie!! How about letting me dance for you? Two gold and I will do a little dance for you.'

You say, 'Where is Tayla Ironforge?'

Mare X`Lottl says 'Why do you seek that little scamp when you have Mare right here? If you really want to know where she is, it will cost you. Did I ever tell you that my heart belongs to Jasper?'

Hand her one Jasper.

Mare X`Lottl says 'Jasper!! My one and only love. All right.. That Tayla creature was lost in a game of King's Court with a very important and secret merchant. Belyea will not speak of him but that he was some sort of Baron. He did give me this trinket from his new friend and owner of the half elf scamp. You keep it. It is worth nothing compared to sweet, beautiful Jasper.'

Head to East Cabilis, sneak/hide to the Haggle Baron. In the same room as the npc Haggle Baron is a key on the floor. Looks like a small bag. Take the key to the locked door. With the key on your pointer, press 'U' to use it on the dooor.

You say, 'Hail, Half Elf Maiden'

Half Elf Maiden says 'What do you want? You do not look like the type of person the Baron usually sends to me.'

Turn in the Seal to her.


Half Elf Maiden says 'Oh, thank you! I did not expect to hear of my family ever again. This seal should grant me protection out of the city if I am careful. Please, take this note to my father and let him know I am safe!'

You gain experience!!

Sneak/hide back out and head to Qeynos. Turn in the note.

Brohan Ironforge says 'Oh, thank you!! Now I know she is safe. My sweet Tayla. Here is your reward, as promised. A hero such as yourself deserves a weapon with which to uphold your noble values.'

Your faction standing with Merchants of Qeynos got better.
Your faction standing with Circle Of Unseen Hands got worse.
Your faction standing with Antonius Bayle got better.
Your faction standing with Coalition of Tradefolk got better.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos got better.
You gain experience!!

You say, 'Combine Long Sword'

My main's Shvaughn, a Barbarian Rogue on the Bertoxx server. She has the Mask of Deception, Journeyman's Boots, and maxed Hide and Sneak; and I find that this is a good way to boost your coin.

After killing WAY too many BlackBurrow gnolls while waiting for the Master Brewer to pop (Burning Rapier quest), my faction w/ Qeynos guards and merchants were maxed out. So, I decided to run thru Qeynos and interact with my newfound allies.

I talked w/ Brohan and found out about the quest. Went thru the paces once (thank you, PoP LOL), and, not researching the quest at all, I expected at least a bronze weapon. When I got a Combine rapier (40pp w/ CHA items in effect), I couldn't believe it!

So I bought a stack of jasper, and decided to run through it a few times to build my bank a bit. I about got it down to a good running time w/ Jboots. Now, if only I can get some cheap SoW and Invis potions... LOL

Not too bad now for a Rogue

Now that everyone can acces the Plane of Knowledge to shorten all the distances, this is a nice way to earn an item worth a few platinum quite quickly - Neriak, Cabilis, then Qeynos via the Books, and you have a combine weapon for the price of a Jasper.

What I want to know is since this quest is given out in Qeynos, you have to have good faction with lights to get in. So how the heck are you supposed to get into N3G then?? It is hard to have good faction all around and you would likely be KOS in either Qeynos or Neriak.

not to mention you need good faction (or maybe invis) with the lizards to get through caballis to the half-elf girl to give her the note thing

Just ran this whole thing through today (12/24/03) and it was all working properly. Also, the faction changes were:

+ Merchants of Qeynos
- Circle of Unseen Hands
+ Antonius Bayle
+ Coalition of Tradefolk
+ Guards of Qeynos

I can't speak on the experience, because at 58 it didn't even move the AA bar. Received a Combine Dagger as well, and no plat.

After completing this though, I had these thoughts to add.

I can't find any point to this quest really. The result is some faction, experience, and a (crappy) combine weapon. A great deal of faction is needed, or someone proficient with their faction adjusting spells, songs, or skills. There is really no result. The weapon Brohan handed me sold to a merchant for about 29pp, but that's about it. If he had handed back anything else, maybe some trinket or other no-drop item, then at least that would be something worth the work in doing this to link to friends or to add to a magelo profile.

anybody notice..

...that 'a key' now spawns on the ground next to the Haggle Baron? Tried it on the door, doesn't work. Gives you to message "This item cannot be dropped, traded or sold" when you try and click on the door while holding the key.

March patch fixed this, you know get a trinket from the DE in Neriak. Hand that to the elf maiden in Cablias (requires picking the lock to get to her) gets you a note (?), hand that back to Brohan gets you a random combine weapon.
Actually....

I was thinking the same exact thing as the gnome down the page. The half-elf maiden locked up in the haggle barons room upstairs. Now I know she is good exp but doesnt drop any quest item. Perhaps hailing the Hagle Baron will reveal something?

The half elf maiden can frequently be found swimming in the large body of water in Cabilis East.

I first saw this quest several months ago, as a newbie in Qeynos. I recently re-visited Brohan Ironforge with my 35 druid. He tells a story of woe about his first wife the wood elf ranger and his oldest, but youngest-looking, daughter, the half-elven Tayla.

Since Tayla seems to have fallen in with some darker elements, this looks like another one of those quests that asks for proof of life but settles for proof of death. Though I'm not sure how to go about checking this out.

I ran around Nektulos and Lavastorm where I was either safe or able to defeat everything, but I was *not* ready to go inside Neriak. I know that if I use the red wine quest, I could increase faction with Dread Guard Inner, Dread Guard Outer, and Dark Bargainers, but getting inside without dying can be an issue, since the quest is in 3rd gate, past the Priests of Innoruuk and near the Dead. Of course, they are on seperate factions and even if you are warmly to Dread Guard, you can be KOS to POI and The Dead.

I guess I'll have to take my chanter inside Neriak to check on the trinket.
Just tried this...No trinket!

I just gave Mare X'Lotti a jasper. She thanked me yada yada yada, but no trinket.

Sigh...Veenus

she has spawned in a secrect passage in th same house the IRONFORGES house apparently she found her way and this quest souldnt be considered a quest.
Trinket
# Jul 28 2000 at 8:11 AM Rating: Decent
I read that this was fixed, that she does give up the trinket now. Two questions:

Anybody done this?

Is this Mare X'lottl on the same faction as other DE's? Can a good PC do this quest?

(Ok, 3 questions)

Oh, by the way...

Tayla is most likely been won by the Haggle Baron in Cabilis. There is a "Half-Elf Maiden" in a locked room upstairs in the Haggle Baron's headquarters. Tayla disappeared from the Maiden's Fancy the same time Kunark went live.
RE: Trinket
# Jan 25 2001 at 7:49 AM Rating: Decent
Sounds almost likely escept one thing. Brohan is Tayla's father, and he is human. I guess it is a possibility that Tayla's mother is elven, so she'd be half-elven... so the question is - Is this maiden the same one? Who knows? I'll be posting if I find anything out.

A trinket from his new friend and owner of the half elf scamp.

That's part of the text the woman in Neriak says, so while her father is human her mother must have been an elf or half-elf.

I think the idea that Jyro had above this reply that suggested Cabilis could be right, there is a half-elf maiden in there. Though if she worked at a brothel can you really call her a maiden?

There 'asn't been a patch since the last time I checked and she didn't give the trinket then. I'm 'opin' the next patch will include a fix fer this :/

Mare is on the Dark Bargainers faction (inky merchant faction). If ye give enough Lightstones 'n Greater Lightstones ta Smith T'vysa in South Ro ye kin get on their good side. In the bar ye might 'ave ta watch out fer the Ambassador 'oo wanders in and out occasionally - everyone else in the bar but 'im is on the Bargainers faction, not sure what 'e is, was Dubious ta me in inkie form.
