See Lyric Loresinger in the Sunrise Hills at location -2700, 2085, 42 (in or around the main vendor building).

If she is performing, she will emote the following:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger remains focused on their performance. Perhaps you should wait until they are off stage to talk to them.

While performing, she will emote the following:

Lysric Loresinger smiles as she addresses the audience, her fans captivated by her stunning voice.
Lysric Loresinger recites a short sonnet about the harrowing adventures of Antonican gypsies.
Lysric Loresinger begins reciting a short poem about the beauty of Ayonae Ro.
Lysric Loresinger looks up to the sky before slowly retelling the ancient story of Sionachie Heartsinger's travels through Kunark.
Lysric Loresinger delivers a concise lyrical limerick about the difficulty of sharing a name with her siblings.

If she's not performing and you hail her she will say the following:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger smiles, 'Lovely weather isn't it? I don't see how my sisters stand to live in the drab towns they do. Travelling abroad does have its ups and downs though...'

You say, 'You have sisters?'

Lysric Loresinger nods, 'My sisters...What about them? Surely you have noticed the family resemblance by now? As it turns out, our parents were not terribly good with names, so when they were blessed with us triplets they were at a loss for words! I think I am the most talkative of the Lysric Sisters, the others aren't much for social interactions, so they prefer not to say much beyond the bare minimum for their lives as song-brokers...'

Once you have completed the Postmaster's Challenge from Postmaster Aric Songfairer nearby, hail Lysric to get the following:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger looks over toward Aric and nods, 'For your noble service in assisting The League with its courier services, we are honored to offer you the assistance of one of our apprentice parcel delivery liaisons. Your continued support has not gone unnoticed, ______.'

You receive Hyredel Swiftstride (parcel NPC for house/guild hall).

You will also get the following messages, depending on what else you've done...

If you haven't done the quest with Pagus Nonad called "The Nonad Brothers," then you will get the following message along with the above one:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger says 'A fine day to you, ______. I hope you are enjoying the fine performances our troupe has to offer. I certainly know Arwik and I are...' A look of concern passes over Lysric's face, 'You... You didn't happen to pass by the Nonad Manor while you were visiting Qeynos did you? I worry so about poor Vicus...''

After you have completed said quest, she will give the following, along with the reward:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger looks deep into your eyes, 'You are both swift in step and kind in deed. An adventurer such as yourself deserves something fitting of their title as a courier. I offer you this, a delicately crafted container. Carry it with pride, ______.'

You receive a Featherweight Satchel of the Courier.

Hailing her after completing all of this stuff yields the following message:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger nods, 'A fine day to you, ______. I hope the morning greets you with the ripe expectations of adventure and the night brings you the amiable tranquility to wrest away your troubles and let your mind fall gentle prey to the subconscious blessings of Morell.'

If you have lost your bag, or transfered it to another character on the same account, you can receive a new Featherweight Satchel of the Courier:

You say, 'Hail, Lysric Loresinger'

Lysric Loresinger looks deep into your eyes, 'You are both swift in step and kind in deed. An adventurer such as yourself deserves something fitting of their title as a courier. I offer you this, a delicately crafted container. Carry it with pride, _____.'

NOTE: it is not considered an exploit to move this bag to another character then ask for a new one without doing the quest again: see this comment from Ngreth on the official forums.

After completing the quest arc, I was wondering what would happen if I placed the Featherweight Satchel of the Courier in my shared bank and then hailed Lysric Loresinger again. So I did that and I received another Featherweight Satchel of the Courier. At this point I started logging in my alts on that account to get the satchel out of the shared bank then logged in the main toon to place another satchel in the shared bank and hail Lysric for another satchel. Rinse and repeat until all the alts on that server had the satchel and finished up by swapping one of the shared bank container with a satchel and gave one of my shared banks 20 slots.

Just completed this quest today as a 29 Wood Elf Ranger. I did the Postmaster Challenge last night in about 3.5 hours. Today I did Tax collection quest in about 30 min. The quest is basically two subquests and had no required fighting. I did however, encounter a few gnolls in Highpass--they were easy kills. I was tempted to at times (during postmaster challenge) to log for the evening but was too afraid I would lose progress. I read somewhere that the parcels were temporary so if you log out you lose them so keep this in mind when doing the Postmaster part. There were a few points when I had no mail in my inventory--does anyone know if you can log at these in between points parcel and not lose progress?

I found I couldnt get Ton Twotone to talk to my 100 mage, but he would talk to my 62 druid. Not even shrouding down to 70 helped. And faction wasn't an issue. The quest from Twotone lists a max level of 95. [EDIT: Nevermind - the key is in how you talk to the mail people - say "deliver" and city name. If you have the word "mail" in your say then it just loops back to the earlier response.]

I used this to do quest for 12 toons over 3 silver accounts, I hope it will help others
(I use g for warrior and m for bard for the class column. All are lv9 but Capital letters are classes lv22+ to kill gnolls on way to highkeep and M is mage able to cast call of the hero to help sk to get ported near quest npc and to tank nearby guard while sk is questing, necro lv9 has invis so he s all good by itself and trouble only at 2 places)

This is formatted as if it is some kind of script.

Is there a program or something that takes this as input?

I just did all of the postmaters challenge, only to find out that another quest, required for Nonad Brothers here requires AMIABLE FACTION IN QEYNOS
Don't waste your time if you're an iksar, dark elf, etc.

Get yourself Puppet Strings and charm Vicus and Flynn. Had no problem doing this as a KoS Iksar. No faction work required.
Alternatively, the ten tax payments, the collection box, and the debtor list for the Taxes quest -- none of it is NoTrade.

I also want to add that I did this without Amiable faction in Qeynos, and had zero problems doing everything with one character. I did the full tax collection quest with Indifferent faction to the merchants, and I only had Dubious faction with Flynn when I got Sayer's Tax Payment from him. I'm sure some people assume they cannot complete the quest because Flynn might tell you to "go back to the sewer" when you hail him, but you can still say the proper lines to him ("Did you steal Mira Sayer's taxes?" and then "I am a gnoll loving weakling who isn't fit to comb your feet") and you will get the taxes.

Edit: I also wanted to add that Vicus was also Indifferent to me when I accepted and finished the Taxes quest. I also used no illusions, charms, or anything else to boost faction.

Takes some time...
# Mar 26 2012 at 7:58 AM Rating: Decent
I completed this quest along with the necessary sub-quests yesterday. It took me somewhere between 4 and 5 hours to complete everything just to give you an ideal. I could probably do it a little faster now that I know where all of the NPC's are. I am a warrior with an AA Run speed of 3 and I used all PoK ports for traveling. Never had SoW and didn't get any help from druid / wizard portals.

It is also very nostalgic... 99% of the sub-quests take place in all original EQ zones. I am a returning F2P player and a lot of good memories came to mind last night while running through the zones.

So if you want an awesome bag and a chance to wander through some of those old zones, this quest is for you!!

Once you done the tax collection and returned to Sunrise, you MUST speak to Pagus once again and he wil reward you with a Miniture Action Lashun. Once you have that you then speak to Lysric Loresinger for your bag.. Missing Pagus will have Lysric not complete the quest.
