Full Walkthrough

You say, 'Hail Tomekeeper Dahl'

Tomekeeper Danl says 'Good day, citizen. Please remember to keep your voice down in our library. Feel free to browse the extensive collection of books we have on display. Learning is all about you and our library is the greatest collection of educational literature in the world, as you can no doubt see. However, there are a few books we do not own and we are prepared to pay well to acquire [rare finds].

You say, 'What rare finds?'

Tomekeeper Danl says 'Yes, any rare books, tomes, essays, or other literature you find may be of interested to me. Although the finds I am interested in are quite high profile and would most likely only be found in the possession of very powerful or influential beings. Give me what you have found and I will pay you what it is worth to us.

The book he requires is called 'Immortals', which can be found on various named mobs in Skyfire (Guardian of Felia, A Lava Walker, A Wandering Wurm, Black Scar).

Give Tomekeeper Danl the book of Immortals and get this response:

Tomekeeper Danl gasps at the sight of the rare book and says, 'This is a great find indeed! I can only imagine who you had to.. persuade to give you the book. Our library would be very interested in acquiring this and I am prepared to give you this platinum and a referral that marks you as a friend of the library. If only [Lheao] could see this.'

You say, 'Who is Lheao?'

Tomekeeper Danl says 'Lheao was my predecessor here at the Library of Erudin. He has since retired, just a few years ago. I'm sure he would be most impressed with your find and offer insightful conversation on the subject. Although I'm not sure one of your profession would be interested in such a scholarly endeavor, no offense. If you are interested, find him and tell him you found the book 'Immortals.' I'm not sure where he has retired to, but I hear it is near an ocean somewhere.

He gives you a piece of paper called Danl's Reference.

Before continuing on, you will need to complete the following quests in this order:

Red Sash of Order (required to get the Robe of the Lost Circle)
Monk Purple Headband (required to get the Robe of the Lost Circle)
Monks of the Whistling Fists (to obtain the Robe of the Lost Circle, which is required to get the Robe of the Whistling Fists)
The Lost Circle (to obtain the Robe of the Whistling Fists, which is required in the next part of the monk epic)

Next, head to the hidden oasis in Timorous Deep. Once there, speak to Lheao.

You say, 'Hail Lhaeo'

Lheao jumps at your voice and begins laughing at his skittishness. He says, 'Ahh, hello there. Not many people know of this place, so visitors are quite rare. Hehehe. It's a very beautiful place indeed, so, ummm, please don't go telling everyone you know about it. Heheh. Thanks, friend.'

You say, 'I have found the book Immortals'

Lheao looks up at you, eyes wide in astonishment, and says, 'My god, you found 'Immortals'?! Where did you find it? Never mind, that is unimportant. I have in my possession a book that explains more about these individuals. Its value is unimaginable as well as the impact it is capable of. As you can see, I grow old. I need an individual to watch over this book and make sure it is protected. Would you be willing to [take this responsibility]?'

You say, 'I will take this responsibility'

Lheao says 'I'm sorry, but I could only give this book to a true master, such as a member of the Whistling Fists Order. And unless you can give me proof that you are one, in addition to Danl's reference, which is very unlikely, there is no way I'll let you take charge of [the Celestial Fists].

You say, 'What Celestial Fists?'

Lheao says 'The Celestial Fists is the title of a book written by an unknown author. His writing is sub par but the legend is interesting from a biographical standpoint alone. Its rarity commands top dollar in the scholarly community but the secrets revealed in the book are what truly makes it dangerous. I've thought many times to destroy it but just couldn't. I hope I'm able to find someone to watch over it soon.

Hand in the Robe of the Whistling Fists and Danl's Reference to get this response:

Lheao says 'Astonishing! To think that you are a master of an order thought to be lost to our world. Forgive my earlier doubts. I believe you are indeed worthy to be given the responsibility of watching over this book. Take great care that it does not fall into the wrong hands as it would be truly disastrous.

The Celestial Fists Book is illegible.

Now head to Trakanon's Teeth and find an NPC named Kaiaren. He is located at Loc -1609, -2679, in the undead ruins.

You say, 'Hail Kaiaren'

Kaiaren says, "AHHH get it away from me go away .. leave me alone".

You say, 'What Celestial Fists?'

Kaiaren says 'Eh? What's that? Bah! That was destroyed long ago. Don't waste my time with fairy taAAAAAGGHHH GET IT AWAY!!!! HELP!!! They're all over MEHEHEHEHEEEEEEee!!

Hand the book "Celestial Fists" to Kaiaren, you will get the Celestial Fists book back and get this response:

Kaiaren's eyes open wide and he attacks you!

If you kill him, you'll get the response, 'Not bad.. Now lets see if you can find my trueform if you do we discuss this further.'

However it is not necessary to kill him. You can just Feign Death to eliminate his aggro.

Now go out and find Kaiaren's true form, which spawned when you gave the book to the angry form. This version is also called Kaiaren, and spawns at approximately +300, +2400 in a building next to the lake. He is indifferent to all.

When you hand him the book, he says the following:

(NOTE: The book you handed in was called "Celestial Fists." The book you get back is called "Book of Celestial Fists." Do NOT hand this book in yet, as he will also be expecting an item you have not yet obtained.)

Kaiaren says 'Now, then. Where did you find this, monk? This is not just some light reading to be borrowed from the town library. Who gave this to you?

You say, 'I got it from Lheao'

Kaiaren says 'Hmmm, never heard of him. Well, it doesn't matter, the book is here now. Curse that idiot for writing it in the first place. Not even sure why I let him stick around. If you ever see that clown monk Aradiel kick him in the shins for me! At any rate, I suppose you'd like to find the Fists and [have a nice chat with them], eh? Their master owes me much. I would reward you well if you were to bring me proof of the master's defeat'

You say, 'I would like to have a nice chat with them'

Kaiaren says 'Yes, I suppose you would. All you children looking for fame and glory will eventually learn the poison of ambition. But how will you find them? They are able to meld with their elements seamlessly and they certainly have no interest in fooling with the likes of you. No, you will need to get their attention. Fortunately, I know [how you can do this].

You say, 'How can I do this?'

Kaiaren says, 'My guess is that the weakest of the Fists will be the easiest to draw out. He is egotistical and arrogant. How he came to master the Discipline of Fire, I do not know. He will most likely be in another form, one of his element. When you find the one you believe to be the Fist, you must challenge him. If you use his true name, Eejag, in your formal challenge, he will respond. A flame can burn intensely but it cannot last for long. Know this when you battle him.

At this point, head on over to the Lavastorm Mountains with a group and find an imp named "A Fire Sprite" and say "I challenge Eejag." There will be a shout to the zone (if no shout, it means Eejag is already up):

Eejag shouts, "What imbecile dares challenges a Celestial Fist?! Do you even know who you are challenging? HA! You are nothing but an insect! I will enjoy crushing you, I have not charred the flesh of an idiot in decades! If you truly wish to fight me, the battle shall be held in my own element. Come, challenger, come down to the pits of flowing fire."

Head over to the fire pit by the entrances to Sol A and Sol B. Under the middle smoke plume, about half way down, you'll see Eejag (an Iksar) swimming. He cannot be pulled so you'll have to fight him where he is -- in the lava.

Once killed, he drops a Charred Scale.

Head back to Trakanon's Teeth and hand the Charred Scale to the true form of Kaiaren. The scale is returned to you, and you get the following:

Kaiaren says 'Ahhh, impressive indeed! Now that you have broken the chain of the Fists, the others may come toppling down if you persevere. The Fist of Air is now the weakest, then Earth, and finally Water before the master of them all, Vorash. You must defeat them in order, proving the demise of the last to draw out the one you are after. The task before you now is to take this scale and show it to the Fist of Air wherever he may be. Good luck.

Now head up to the Plane of Sky and find an NPC named "A Presence" on Noble Dojorn's island. It is in the form of a shadowman so only the name is visible.

Hand the Charred Scale over to the Presence and get this response:

a presence says 'Hahaha! That dolt Eejag fell to the likes of you? I'm not surprised. So, I guess this means you're here to challenge me. Normally, I wouldn't waste my time, but since you've defeated my younger brother, I suppose I'm obligated. I'm ready when you are, tell me when you're [prepared].

The Presence will despawn and a Human monk named Gwan appears in his place. Telling him 'I am prepared' causes him to attack (or do it the old fashioned way by engaging him first).

(NOTE: Gwan procs Fist of Air which can knock you backwards. This can be dangerous if you're too close to the island's edge.)

Once dead, loot the "Breath of Gwan" and go directly to the Mines of Nurga to find a sleeping ogre. He's KOS so you may have to have an enchanter charm him for this next part.

Once you're ready for a fight, hand him the Breath of Gwan to get this response:

a sleeping ogre says 'Your path of wanton destruction ends here. Gwan and Eejag were impatient and hot-headed. You will not defeat me, for I have the patience and perseverance of stone, unlike the children you have beaten before me. Are you sure you want to challenge me?

He won't give you a chance to respond. Trunt, a 59th level KOS ogre will immediately spawn and attack. He is immune to magic and a tougher fight than the previous ones.

He drops Trunt's Head.

Take the head to Lake Rathe and find a 58th level dark elf named Deep who lives in the lake. Hand Trunt's Head to her to get the following:

Deep slowly opens her eyes and looks up at you. She stares at you a long while and then closes her eyes and lowers her head again, saying, 'Very well, if you wish death so greatly, we will be happy to oblige. My master projects part of himself in the wilder lands known as the Overthere. He has granted you an audience. Find him and show him the head of our earth brother. At that point, we will discuss how we will end your life.

Deep despawns immediately and you get the Head of Trunt back.

Head to the Overthere, and find Astral Projection in the bottom of the scorpion chasm at +3830, -3545. He does not need to be fought.

Hand Trunt's Head over and get the following response:

Astral Projection looks up and down and says, 'Hmmm, I was hoping for something more impressive. This is just a small token of the last person who tried to interfere with my plans. He failed as you shall. But tell me truly, are you the one who has so rudely removed my students?'

You say, 'Yes'

Astral Projection says 'I assume you have read about us and spoken with the old man, Kaiaren. Since that time, I have grown in power and influence to a point unseen by any mortal. Unfortunately, I will have to demonstrate a small amount of my skill when I destroy you. This is bad. I must decide whether you are worthy to see the techniques I wield, even though you will die shortly thereafter. Tell me, who are you?

You say, 'I am the one'

Astral Projection chuckles and says, 'That's quite a boast. All beings strive for nothingness at the most basic level of sentience. However, almost none ever achieve this. Not even I have discarded my ego yet and you stand here and tell me you have? Perhaps you will be a worthy opponent. I shall be waiting in the great lake near here. Take that token as proof of things to come for you. If you still wish to throw your life away so needlessly, return it to my image there. I await your decision.'

He will give you an Eye of Kaiaren and then despawn.

Now head to the Lake of Ill Omen for the final fight of the monk epic. You can find Astral Projection (same form as the Overthere version) on the platform in the lake itself at +765, +860.

When you give the Eye of Kaiaren to the Astral Projection, he despawns. Deep and Vorash will then both spawn, and are very much KOS.

Deep procs Fist of Water, and hits for 170ish. Vorash procs Fist of Mastery, which is a DD and a stun, and hits for around the same as Deep.

Both Deep and Vorash have no items.

Once killed, Vorash says 'Foolish mortal! You think you have defeated me? Now, witness the true power of Rallos Zek!

Xenevorash will then spawn on the platform, regardless of where Vorash dies.

Xenevorash procs Fist of Sentience which is a 500DD and a stun, and hits for 250.

Once he is killed, his death message is:

Xenevorash's corpse shouts 'Grraaaagghhhh!! NOT.. POSSIBLE!

He drops a Demon's Fang.

Finally, head back to Trakanon's Teeth and hand Kaiaren (either form) the Demon's Fang and the "Book of Celestial Fists."

Kaiaren bows his head and breathes a long sigh as if relived of a great weight. He then looks up at you and says, 'I honestly did not believe you could have defeated Vorash. Even though he sought nothing but war and bloodshed, it is a life nonetheless and we must mourn him. I will sew these fangs into magical fist wraps and they shall be yours. Remember Xenevorash. A purpose can be found for every situation and individual. To achieve perfection is to perceive this truth.'

You receive the Celestial Fists.

The quest was fully completed by a guild mate. i have helped in portions of the quest. I will attempt to coarse him into coming here to post a full detail of the quest or, at the least, a site on which he found the details or somewhere that he posted the details. sorry i could not be of more help. In fact i came to this board to get some info on the epic quest. I am happy with the amount of interest in this quest. It is well worth the reward. Please be advised that our guild did do the quest in massive groups (3 minimum). they are not for the weak hearted or the lightly trained. Do not be deterred, it can be done. Good Luck brothers!

It makes your fists (unless they changed it), have two different effects. The left one i believe has clear blue shurikens emitting from it, and the other one has a pulse similar to the druid spell firefist that comes out, very nice, so if they did change it, someone tell me

There is an Effect, It's called Celestial Traquility. It has a 40% haste that I belive does stack. I think It might do one other thing, but not sure.

# Nov 01 2000 at 7:09 AM Rating: Default
Sorry, to post this here, but It kinda deals with a small part of this quest. I took 3 months off from eq from like june through august(big mistake) and had not completed Rotwf quest before I left. I still needed the 2 pipes at that point. Well, anyway I just recently got the one from chardock, but the pawduster has been avoiding me for awhile now. I think I have been camping the warlord room for like 8 nights now for about 5 hrs a night. I havent seen him once. My question was , Has anyone seen the pawduster on your servers in the past 3 weeks or so? I just wanted to know if he was taken out for some reason and will be put back in in a future patch.

Thks,
Toranodo

# Nov 01 2000 at 1:37 PM Rating: Default
They still pop, but they are rare. The placeholders for them are drolvarg bodyguards and warlords. There are 4 of them that spawn in a room that is down some stairs from 5 jail cells located near the hand room. The pawduster is a very rare spawn, if you camp the area all day he might pop once.
is this quest broken?

i heard there was a bug with this quest. seems players figured out you give the book to that K guy and he gives it back but each time you gave it to him you earned exp. so what im being told by the level 60 monks on veeshan is they got everything but cannot locate the true K guy inorder to give him the demon thing and this book. thier telling me that verant removed the K fellow from the game till they can fix this, or else you could become level 60 from just handing the book back and forth till your blue in the face.. is this K guy present on other servers? if so where is he?

I am really thankful for the brother or sister who took the time to type this out, but would like to say that in its current loosely sketched and entirely shorthand style typing... I cannot make heads or tales of anything this guy is trying to say.
I realize what has been typed is probably about a page of typing, and if it was written out clearly it may have been 3, but atleast then it would be legible and perhaps use could be gotten out of it.
Just my 2 cents.

Is it just me or is this quest pretty easy? You could easily do it in one day assuming you already have the RotWF, and a decent guild to help you. Also what I wanna know is do you even need to bother giving the head to the fist of water and the celestial fists to kaiaren initially, cuz they both just give the item back and tell you something you already knew. Or, perhaps it logs whether you turned in the book to those NPCs.

Yea, we just did quest in 1 day with 1 group. 2 Wars, Cleric, Monk, Rogue, Chanter. (Had wiz port us up to PoA, but he didnt help) And the book and head still have to be turned in, even tho they have the same name and everything the items are indeed different. Never tried skipping those steps, so yes, I could be wrong, but thatd be my bet.

Aye, the permakilled Kaiaren until the next patch, therefore making the quest impossible to complete (unless you have a GM spawn Kaiaren) until the next patch. And it wasn't the book, it was the Charred Scale, if you tried to turn the book into him i believe he eats it after you turn it in once.

Epic Quest Summary 10/16

Please refer to my last post (Epic Quest Summary 10/7) for the earlier steps of the quest.

Trunt has been found!!

He is "a_sleeping_ogre" in Nurga. When given the head of Gwan he despawns and immediately respawns as Trunt. I hear he hits hard and has loads of HP, so be prepared.

He drops "head of Trunt".... i'm guessing this is turned in to Deep in Lake Rathe.

So, we have the next step finished, and I'm guessing we're almost done here.

All from monkly-business.com boards:

Get the head from trunt in nurga, give it to deep, she gives it back, despawns and tells you to go to Overthere to find projection of her master.

give the head to Astral projection in the Overthere, he gives back an eye of kaiaren
to give to the AP in lake of ill omen near the platform in the center of the lake.

Give the eye to him, that spawns vorash and deep.
Kill vorash and that spawns xenovorash. Kill him and get the demon fang.

I read that the book should be given to the true form of kaiaren first, then when given back, to give both the book and the fang to either of them which may or may not give you back your final weapon.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 11 2000 at 10:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am fairly new to this game and a lvl 17 paladin so really have no idea what I'm talking about, but common sense tells me that the earth fist would most likley be located in THE HOLE.
RE: Earth Fist? The Hole?
# Oct 13 2000 at 5:07 PM Rating: Default
Thats probably true. The HOLE as we know it is the underbelly of norrath. It is a realm ruled over by the diety Brell and as such most things down there involve the earth> earth elementals etc. Just my 2cp
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 09 2000 at 7:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The guardians the roam the area near the LS Nek zone may be part of this not sure. It seems like a relatively open place that few people would check. But it seam as if someone would have spotted an unusal looking guardian walking around by now.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 09 2000 at 5:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ive found part of one of the monk epic quests, his name is eejag, an iksar monk npc in lavastorm, i wlil post a screenshot , or submit one to allakhazams to see if he posts here. he is lvl 55, hits for 105-110 a punch, ripostes alot, and you have to fight him in the lava pit near solb, because he summons the person that trys to pull him back into the lava.
Epic Quest Summary 10/7

Here are the steps we've found so far in the epic quest, we're not done yet, but it appears that we are getting closer:

-Get "Immortals" in skyfire off of various mobs
-Give "Immortals" to Danl in the Erudin Library
-Take Danl's reference and your Robe of the Whistling Fist and give them to Lheao in an underwater inn in the Timorous Deep
-Take the Celestial Fists from Lheao and go to Trakanon's Teeth and give the book the Kaiaren
-Giving the book to him will make him attack, so feign him off and go to the lake, you will find 'Kaiaren' there, this is the other Kaiaren's true form
-He tells you about the Celestial Fists, and that you have to defeat them, he says the easiest to defeat will probably be the one of the fire element
-Go to Lava Storm and find "a_lava_sprite (spirit?)" (the sprite/spirit looks like an imp) and say to it: "I challenge you Eejag"
-Doing so will cause it to despawn and you will immediately hear Eejag shout something to the extent of "You DARE challenge me?!?! I am the Master of the Discipline of Fire!! Blah blah blah If you want to fight me come to the fires below!" He is an iksar and can be found in the big fire pit near the Ro Temple/Sol A/Sol B zones
-He's pretty tough, so bring a group or two with you. He cannot be pulled out of the lava so you'll have to fight him in the lava.
-He drops "Remains of the Fist of Fire" which IDs as a "Charred Scale" (or something to that extent)
-This scale is either given the Kaiaren's true form or to "a presence" in sky (sorry, i cant remember) "a presence" was recently moved from a remote island in sky to Dojorn's island. To open a trade window with him you must be outside of the windmill.
-Upon giving him the scale he says something to the extent of: "Hah! So you defeated that arrogant fool Eejag? How he came to be the master of fire i wll never know. blah blah blah I suppose i should avenge him. Tell me when you are [prepared]. He immediately despawns and spawns as a human monk named "Gwan", I believe saying "I am prepared" makes him attack you.
-Upon killing him he says "Trunt! Prepare yourself!"
-He drops "Remains of the Fist of Air" which IDs as "Breath of Gwan".

Now... this is where we're stuck... we're now looking for the fist of earth (Trunt)(seeing as how Deep (in lake rathe) is supposedly the fist of water.)

This is all I have right now, hopefully we'll find that Fist of Earth so we can get this damned quest over with...

I'm guessing either a place where there are golems. The hole is beast guess for me.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 09 2000 at 3:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well think about it guys, Earth must be either a mountain region or an earthy type dungeon spot. I'll check around the juggernauts next time i do trakanon but I haven't done hole yet and ill do that too. I suggest for those with less 'resources' to go check mountain areas, steamfont mountains, rathe mountains, frontier mountains etc, i dont have time to do it all ;)
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 08 2000 at 11:47 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) hes in the hole, maybe he has something to do with it.
Oh yeah...
# Oct 08 2000 at 10:35 AM Rating: Default
I forgot to mention that Kaiaren's true form says something about the Celestial Fists being able to blend perfectly into their surroundings (i.e. Eejag's fire form is of a fire imp, and Gwan's is a shadowed man) So we're looking for either an earth elemental or a golem of some sort, possibly something else that we havent though of. I'm leaning towards golem though, because they could have made Gwan and Eejag's elemental forms elementals... but instead they made them other creatures assosciated with the element (i.e. fire imp and shadow man).

Keep a look out for strange mobs, probably not named but more along the lines of a_xxxx rather than Lord_Xxxx. Just a thought.

You found one monk in the heart of a volcano, another in the plane of sky, and expect a third to appear in a lake. It follows that you'd find the fourth within the depths of the earth.

What's the deepest underground location in Norrath? The Hole, perhaps?
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 08 2000 at 11:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmmm, earth. There's earth elementals in Steamfront, The Hole is underground, maybe even Rathe mountains. Just my two bits. Also, sure there's only those 4? What if there is an Ice one, but even if there was, Everfrost or Dreads would be the place to go for dem.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 08 2000 at 11:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hiya Awea! According to the game lore section on this site, there is an NPC named Talloth Vara in Paineel that talks about the history of the Hole. He says that they found "The Vault" which 1) is the seal to the plane of Underfoot, and 2) is the source of all of the Earth Elementals near the city.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 07 2000 at 1:19 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Is it possible that, being the Celestial Fist mobs are astronaut anograms, we should seek a zone not on Norrath? Perhaps the astronauts are a clue to check the Plane of Sky... anyone try the monk quest NPCs already existing there?
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 07 2000 at 5:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) very possible.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 07 2000 at 1:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) all i can say is, dont bet everything on anagrams, like someone posted already, if you read Qeynos backwards, you get SonyEq.... all im saying is, maybe those names dont have a meaning
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 08 2000 at 3:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Very true... but its definitely worth a look. I dont get up to Plane of Sky much myself, which is why I posted the suggestion for others to try.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 06 2000 at 7:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a newbee monk and was wondering where is the best place to buy cured silk items. I am in freeport and have only found the face cover.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 06 2000 at 7:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) cured silk armor is player made stuff. you have to find a tailor to make it for you. your problaly going to have to bring him the materials too. they are rare. you need silk swatches and hiedi kiolia.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 05 2000 at 9:00 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) there was an iksar monk swimming in the middle of lava in lavalstorm i heard him say something about Celestial Fist and if you want to fight him come to the fires below. this is where the zones for Sol A and B are in the lava pit there he is an Iksar i have not fought him yet but will tommorrow. so i am not sure what he drops.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 06 2000 at 11:20 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Go to www.monkly-business.com they have more info there about tis mob and why is is there and how you get him to spawn. he is the fist of fire and there are 3 other fist after him air earth and water in that order. he drops a scale and you egive that to the next fist and that fist drops something you give to the next and after the last you fight a master. anyway I'm too lazy to type it all go there to find out.

hey guys i found something, may be nothing but not sure.. ok the guy that posted here "post from monkly...." he mentions a book with 4 names.. CARADON name is shown i have NO idea what thats for but if it helps I FOUND this CARADON npc inside "the hole"! he is located in the jail, follow around thru the left wall and take a right and last jail cell.. hes level 55 and responds to hail, he was imprissioned and seeks a key, i think we asked him "where is kyranna" her name might be misspelled:), but he mentions about his incarseration either in the hail or if you ask a question thats visibly given in the hail text.. anyway it seems she is nearby and he will tell you where to go for her if you get him a key to help in his freedom..

now someplayers have said this is the paladin quest here, but that is still iffy and there is a chance our quests overlap npc's in the game, save some programming time and shove 2 quests onto one guy..

im just bringing it to light that this poster here said caradon as an immortal and is in this book we get, and he is in the hole and talkable to, there is a quest of getting him a key to help him escape, and he will lead you or give information to another npc, a female named kyranna amma whatever.... obviously ive not found a key:)

Caradon and kyranna are part of the SK particle weapon quest (see the quest:'Innoruuk's curse' under shadowknight quests)

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 05 2000 at 6:49 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) while looking at one of the other monk message boards someone mentioned a new npc in paineel. i had to see for myself so started a newb SK. Kastone Gerot sp? was the npc i ran into just outside the SK guild and isn't too far from the entrance. i looked at illia's bestiary and she doesn't have him listed on the chart. he is surrounded by necros though and you have to go past a series of skelly guards to get to him. he is human, no weapons, but doesn't have to typical monk garb, looks kinda like targin in solb. nor does he respond kindly to any of my hails.
Has anyone tried giving the Book of Immortals to Lheao?
# Oct 04 2000 at 10:45 PM Rating: Default
Danl did say that he figured Lheao would like to see it.
Has anyone bothered getting another and giving it to Lheao?
