Plagus Pladeson of the Steel Warriors in Freeport (he can be found in the courtyard behind the Steel Warriors building) talks to you about his hopeless love affairs with both [Milea] and [Toala]. If you ask him about Toala, he will tell you that she is in love with Cain Darkmore. She won't respond to Lagus's name (I have been told she might respond now), but will respond to Cain Darkmoor's name, and will tell you that he is in love with Opal Darkbriar. Quite the triangle. I am told that this is not a quest, but merely a story line.

You say, 'Hail, Plagus Ladeson'

Plagus Ladeson says, 'Greetings, ____, and welcome to the bunker. Are you a [new warrior] or a [veteran]?'

You say, 'I am a veteran'

Plagus Ladeson says, 'I apologize for not knowing. I am new to the bunker. I was a trainer at the Hall of Steel in Qeynos before this. I left Qeynos in search of [Milea] and instead found myself joining the bunker's weaponmasters.'

You say, 'Who is Milea'

Plagus Ladeson says, 'Milea Clothspinner. She was my one true love. She, too, is a Steel Warrior. When she left Qeynos to find adventure, my heart left also. I never saw her again, but I decided to transfer my skills to Freeport. It is probably best that I did not find her. She was in love with adventure. The women I am attracted to are always in love with another. Just like [Toala].'

You say, 'Who is Toala'

Plagus Ladeson says, 'Toala is supreme when it comes to the blade, but in the art of passion she chooses leans toward Cain Darkmoore. I do not get it. She is a very beautiful and strong-hearted warrior. Why Cain does not like her is a mystery to me. Why does she waste her time when she could have me? After all, we men of Qeynos are known as the most romantic in all of Norrath.'

You say, 'Hail, Toala Nehron'

Toala Nehron says, 'I am Toala Nehron. You must be another young warrior aspiring to join the ranks of the Steel Warriors. We welcome all who would try. When you [have time], there is a friend of mine I would like you to check on.'

You say, 'Who is Opal Darkbriar'

Toala Nehron says, 'Opal Darkbriar is a little plague rat. She has used her knowledge of arcane arts to charm [Cain Darkmoore]. I know that is what happened. Why else would he be in love with her? He is a mighty warrior and she is nothing more than a sickly little librarian for the Academy of Arcane Science. He must truly yearn for a bold-hearted female warrior such as myself. Not that I care, of course.'

You say, 'Who is Cain Darkmoore'

Toala Nehron says, 'Cain Darkmoore is only the most handsome of warriors! He is also the strongest and most bold. He has slain the mightiest of fiends. He is truly the manliest man around. It is no wonder he is the guildmaster of the Steel Warriors.'

You say, 'Hail, Cain Darkmoore'

Cain Darkmoore says, 'Hail, ____! We are the Steel Warriors of Freeport. Our training disciplines have created some of the finest warriors ever to walk upon Norrath. Perhaps the bards shall sing songs of you one day. Let your first mission be the extermination of [Clan Deathfist].'

You say, 'Who is Opal Darkbriar'

Cain Darkmoore says, 'Opal. Beautiful Opal Darkbriar. Never have I gazed upon a more beautiful creature. She works as a librarian at the Academy of Arcane Science. Some day she shall be mine. A warrior as bold as myself deserves the very best and she is truly that.'

Whether this is a quest or just a story here is some dialogue.
Where should be East Freeport
I could not get West or East Opal Darkbriar to respond at all.

Took a while, but the Hogcaller Inn quest reveals to Toala that Opal is dealing with the dark elves (she doesn't realize Opal is a dark elf), so asking about her gets you the nasty love triangle response.

Toala doesn't mention anything about Opal Darkbriar. I'll see if any dialogue can be sniffed out for the storyline/lore, or if there is a quest involved.

Alright here goes.. I finished the first quest Given by Lagus and ended me giving the combined heads to Toala. Further more then she proceeded to tell me that Opal was probably behind it as well and CHARMED Cain into

Her precise words are

"Good work. We will soon catch Opal. I have started to formulate a plan to stop her. When I complete it, I shall notify you. Here. Take this small reward. I am sure killing Shintl was no trouble. She was just a halfling.

You say, 'Who is opal'

Toala Nehron says, 'Opal Darkbriar is a little plague rat. She has used her knowledge of the Arcane arts to charm [Cain Darkmoore] I know that is what happened. Why else would he be in love with her? He is a mighty warrior and she is nothing more than a sickly little librarian for the Academy of Arcane Science. He must truly yearn for a bold-hearted female warrior such as myself. Not that I care, of course.'

With this description of Opal as a 'plague rat', is it possible that the Plague Tail from the Rats in the newbie areas are connected to this?
Opal Darkbriar

I have wondered if maybe they are the same person, just she does an illusion spell, although necromancers can't do illusions, so... I don't know... Seems kinda bad of Verant to make so many duplicate named npcs... I know of at least two other cases of multiple npcs with the same name.
Second Opal Darkbriar

There is a second Opal Darkbriar that can be found on the upper floors of the Academy of Archane Science.

Opal is dark elf necro guildmaster below Freeport. Also you might try telling Toala about Opal or Cain about Lagus (just a thought)
