Find Niclaus Ressinn by the south wall of the Qeynos Hills.

You say, 'Hail, Niclaus Ressinn'

Niclaus Ressinn says 'Hail, _____. I am Niclaus Ressinn, loyal Paladin of Life. I am scouting the Qeynos Hills on orders from High Priestess Jahnda. We have received reports of undead prowling these hills of late.'

You say, 'Have you seen any undead?'

Niclaus Ressinn says 'I believe the undead prowl these hills at night. I have found the remains of several adventurers who obviously had the misfortune of running into some of Bertoxxulous' dark minions. One young human was still cluching this parchment in his cold, dead fist.'

You say, 'What parchment?'

Niclaus Ressinn says 'I believe it is from a spell book of some kind and I do not have a working knowledge of things arcane. Perhaps you could help? Take it. I am sure someone in Qeynos could decipher it. I must remain here to gather more evidence but please return to me with anything you discover.'

You receive a Torn Parchment.

(It is not known where this leads.)

Niclaus Ressinn says 'Excellent! Rodcet smiles upon us this day! Here, please take this pouch of evidence to Jahnda in the Temple of Life. She will know what we must do. I will remain here to keep an eye out for the miinions of Bertoxxulous. Also, accept this small reward as a token of my appreciation for your efforts to rid Norrath of the influence of the Plaguebringer.'

As others have posted here asking ROESAGER THURSTEN "who is nicalaus Ressinn" will get you a note if you have good enough faction. I did this at amaibly. In his comment he will say "I have a message from jahnda for him , BUT I MUST CONTINUE MY OWN SEARCH HERE IN QEYNOS.


ASK ROESEGER THURSTEN "what are you searching for and will say " Someone Reported seeing a Plaquebringer roaming about in the hills near qeynos. We long suspected that their dark influence was spreading. I am searching for proof that they are now here in qeynos. If you find anything , please bring it to me at the temple of life."


Earlier i had followed tovax around a bit and he droped a note . looked like a litt baggy on ground where stoped for a while. it was near surefall entrance just of the road.

Handing in this note to Roesager Gives me this message

"Rodcet be praised! This is what we have been searching for! on behalf of the temple of life, let me thank you and offer you this small reward for you aid in our war against the plaguebringer."

I recieved 4 silver and following factions

increast tempel of life
increast knights of thunder
increast guard of qeynos
decrease bloodsabers
increast Antonious Bayle

Hope this information was helpfull

I said: yo, i will slay the undead for you. To him. Then he ran to the ruins where the skeletons are. I already killed them so he wandered off. Then 2 skeletons spawned and he kept walking to the south west.

This quest is not really a quest anymore. VI broke it shortly after they implemented it. Way back in the day, neclo used to respond to a phrase, such as i will take or some such nonsense. He used to give you a note that you took back to South Qeynos. The guy was the enchanter or wizzie guildleader. He was outside and behind the normal guild. What happened was neclo gave you a letter, once you gave it to the guy in SQeynos, your reward was a lvl 44 enchanter/wizzie spell of a particular name. You could sell this spell for 1-2 plat. The reason VI broke this was because people used to abuse this. we made like 40-60 plat an hour using relay teams. this was like 4months after retail release. so that was alot of money back then. atleast it was to us =)I sure wish i knew about this from beta 3. anyone remember when his name was *neclo reshlar? they used to use the * infront before they switched to using !.

<I>This is part of of a Paladin for the Rodcet Nife Quests. So far I am not sure If Pallys are the only ones to do it and what item you get as I cant find the person to Decipher the Torn Parchment either. but will post what I have done so far here below. Hope it helps some.

First Go to the temple of life. find where the spells are sold inside the building to your right. Take the first door. and find Roesager Thusten standing just inside the door (sometimes hes outside gates wandering so you may need to waite for him to return.) Hail him.

Roesager Thusten says: Hail Taludara, My name is Roesager Thusten, Paladin of life. I am a loyal servant of the prime healer. And I seek to Destroy all who wish to bring death and disease to the land of Norrath.

Taludara says: Who is Niclaus Ressin?

Roesager Thusten says: Niclaus Ressin? Have you seen him? He is one of our Paladins Who was sent out to Ivestigate the undead sightings in the Qeynos Hills. I have a message from Jhanda for him, but I must continue my Own search here in Qeynos. Could take this note to Him? Your Help would be appreciated.

At this point Roesager Thusten gives you a Note . so Now you need to find Ressin.

So you Go out the gates and to the Left. Follow wall till you Zone into Qey Hills zone. keep following the wall till you pass the Shack hut and the fire area and just over the hillrise onto the other side (should of got location but my error) He should spawn there. you might have to waite a few moments for him to do so but this is where I found him.

Taludara Says : Hail Niclaus Ressin.

Niclaus Ressin says: Hail Taludara, I am Niclaus Ressin, Loyal paladin of Life. I am scouting the Qeynos Hills on orders from High Priestess Jhanda. We have recieved reports of Undead prowling the hills of Late.

(At this point I gave him the note from Roesager)

Niclaus Ressin says: OH things are becomming Dire here in Norrath. May Rodcet Protect us! I have gathered most of the Evidence that I will need to present to Jhanda. But I could still use your assistance with one Final Piece. I need to Recover a Rib Bone from one of the undead beasts that wander these hills. Be sure that the Rib Bone comes from one of the Putrid Skeletons, they are the spawn of Bertoxxulous.

Taludara says: Have you seen any Undead?

Niclaus Ressin says: I believe the Undead prowl these hills at night. I have found the remains of Several Adventurer's who obviously had the misfortune of running into some of Bertoxxolous' dark minions. One such Human was still clutching this Parchment in his cold Dead Fist.

Taludara says: What Parchment?

Niclaus Ressin says: I believe it is from a spell book of some kind, and I do not have the working Knowledge of things Arcane. Perhaps you could Help? Take it. Im sure someone in Qeynos could Decipher it. I must remain here to Gather more Evidence, but return to me With anything you discover.

(Here he does give you the torn Parchment. You cant read it Well I cant it wont let me at all. )

I wandered all over qeynos north and south trying to find someone to decipher this thing but to no avail Havent found anyone yet am still looking. and the rib bone I havent gotten just yet. but will post more here when I do finish this thing.

Good Luck and hope this helps

Say to him "i will slay the undead" or something to that effect ,and then he gives you a bag that you fill with bone chips ,and combine and give it back. Forget what he gives you.

Gin`vixx
# Dec 04 2001 at 4:03 AM Rating: Default
`vixxA couple of days ago, I was looking for Gnasher Furgutt in Qeynos Hills when someone shouted 'there's a named gnoll at the crossroads to Karana'. The only odd name I saw was Gin`vixx so I tracked it as it headed north toward Surefall Glade. What an error in judgement! I never physically saw it, but it apparently saw me. This thing just toyed with me. I was still mobile at this point but I could not turn in place fast enough to put it in front of me. It hit me (with magic, I think) and I was rooted to the spot, unable to move for more than a minute. It hit me again and all my spells disappeared. Someone else could apparently see it and attacked it and then ran off with it following. That saved my life! When I was finally able to move, I tracked it coming back toward me. I beat feet and made it to Surefall Glade zone. My questions are many but mainly: What is Gin`vixx? What level is it? How can it be killed?
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 30 2001 at 2:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) happy to see him and varsson to be walking around the zone when both of them are up it means that Pyzjn is up at the same time in toxx the following night she pops around the ruins in QH

decifer
# Apr 02 2001 at 6:27 AM Rating: Default
I have reason to believe that there is a gnome that sometimes appears in one of the bars that may be able to decifer it. He mentioned that he studied many languages.

The decipherer isnt Rephas unless you need be at better than amiable faction with him.

Also, Rephas will just thank you for the note, not even indicate insufficient faction. Till then I will get some more rat ears(*sigh*)
RE: trying to find the decifer
# Dec 04 2000 at 12:48 PM Rating: Default
the decipherer is in Highpass keep, a gnome named Lozani. he'll translate, and give you a lower level spell back.

Aren't you referring to the illegible scroll quest? I've heard rumor that this is possibly a referral to the Arcane guild in Freeport as far as those "knowledgeable in things arcane."
