Kurne Rextula is a Necromancer guildmaster located at +285, -421, -38 in the eastern part of the Catacombs.

You say, 'Hail, Kurne Rextula'

Kurne Rextula says 'Welcome to the new order of life, the life of service to our diseased Lord, Bertoxxulous. Did you encounter any of my [pets] on the way here? I hope not.'

You say, 'What pets?'

Kurne Rextula says 'My pets are the skeleton guardians of these catacombs. Some have been behaving erratically since the arrival of [Drosco].'

You say, 'Who is Drosco?'

Kurne Rextula says 'Drosco used to be a loyal member of our shrine, until we learned the truth. The truth was that he was a mole from the Knights of Thunder. It appears they are assisting the Temple of Life in their pursuit of our eradication. Drosco was apprehended and boiled alive. I turned his boiled body into a zombie to march these halls. Now he must be stopped. He has begun to [compromise the shrine's location].'

You say, 'How does he compromise the shrine's location?'

Kurne Rextula says 'The problem is, he was strong in Karana's faith. And as sometimes is the case, there is a resonance from his deity. This causes him to wander in and out of our hidden shrine and I believe it also interferes with my control of the other pets. Please find him and destroy him. Bring me back the note I placed upon his body. Go!!'

a zombie says 'Rele.. ase.. me.. from.. this.. tor.. ment.. ARGH! You will die for entering the domain of the Bloodsabers!! Karana.. help.. me?'

You crush a zombie for 42 points of damage.
Your faction standing with Bloodsabers got worse.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos got better.
Your faction standing with Opal Dark Briar got worse.
Your faction standing with Priests of Life got better.
Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards got worse.
a zombie's corpse says 'ARGH!!!!!.. Thank.. you..'
You have slain a zombie!
You receive 6 copper from the corpse.

--You have looted Sealed Letter.--

The Sealed Letter identifies as "Note to Temple," and reads:

Dear Temple of Thunder, Thank you for the lovely retreat to the Shrine of Bertoxxulous. I especially loved the bubbling hot baths, although I think I stayed in too long because all my flesh was boiled clean off my body. Oh well, back to wandering the catacombs. Love, Drosco, agent of thunder. P.S. I think the Shrine was not fooled.

The turn in:

Kurne Rextula says 'Good work! You shall rise quickly in our ranks of evil. Let no man stand in your way and never betray the shrine or you to will join our collection of undead. You can also assist me with a [new task].'

Looks like this page wants the kill faction to completely fill in the numbers:

Updated, thanks. This is an odd one as the factions completely balance out (while likely occurring other places in the game, this is not something I have seen in the last 2 months of updating quests).

I actually think this was bugged. Some of the Drosco quest faction his seem backwards. But, we log what it is I suppose, all we can do.

Faction hits balanced?

Does anyone know if the faction hits for killing Droscoe and the hits for turning in his loot balance each other? I am a shadowknight in Qeynos and can't afford to have my Bloodsabers and Corrupt Guard factions be lower after I finish this quest than when I started it. Losing Order of Thunder faction would also be bad since Wolten Grafe tends to wander around a bit and I don't want him KOSing me.

Who it goes to

Well I accidently did this quest, my Necro alt was running through the sewers and I came across this zombie, killed it (at 8th lvl btw) and got Droscoe's note, being evil went and hailed everyone in the temple (that is the Bertoxxulos temple) and the note gets handed to Kurne Rextula (who then gives you Trumpy's head quest). I'm going to have to guess you need decent faction with the Bloodsabers to do this quest
Drosco Evil

Well, I Just finished this quest (I Think) I thought i would have one last look in the room with the 3 rats before i log off for the night and lookie what i found. When he died, he dropped a letter, that you give back to Kurne Rextula and a amulet (The Order of Thunder), which for the life of me, can't figure what to do with. I tried to give it to every person in the Bertoxxulos Shrine but to no avail, and it can't be sold. The stats are: +2AC +5CHA.

Just an aside...I am kinda disappointed this site doesn't have more...I had heard good things about allakhazam....anyway

This USED to be the Drosco quest, but now it's really just a Zombie quest. Drosco's character's was changed to Zombie awhile ago in some patch. To get him to spawn, I think you have to keep killing all the rats in the room he spawns in (see eqatlas.com). When you kill him, the real quest is for the note/letter he drops. I have been told that you take the letter to Wolten Graffe who is in the Temple of Thunder. He then gives u a letter to take to somone in FP. Give this chick the letter who is in the Temple of Truthbringers (Mithenal Marr) and that's when you get good xp, a blunt weapon such as rusty morning star or bronze mace and 1plat 7-9 gold.

You would notice this one is labeled (evil) the quest you're talking about is the good version.
Finally got him.
# Jun 29 2001 at 5:45 PM Rating: Default
Took a while but I finally got him to spawn. Here's the approximate time:

2PM Friday the 13th of March 3210

When he appears he looks just like a normal zombie and the name is just "a zombie".
Can't get quest

I am a level 7 necromencer and i can't seem to say the right thing to Kurne i get to where you ask what about (drosco) but then after that he says about a paragraph and i can't figure out what to say
Drosco Gone?

I have been all over Qeynos Aqueducts and have never seen this NPC. Is this quest still active?
Drosco
# Jul 25 2000 at 2:22 AM Rating: Decent
He sometimes drops 2 items for clerics, paly, druids, and shamans. He drops a Necklass that you turn in for the thunder staff..The necklass stats are +3 cha. He also drops a letter and i have no idea what that is for.

Hey, pallyboy, did you see this is the evil thread? I can tell you where to put your thunder stick! As it says up top, return them to one of the necromancer guildmaster. Go try it.

The disease is spreading.
