Quest Overview

Due to events surrounding the Ancient Olthoi Queen, Olthoi activity on mainland Dereth increased greatly. Previously undiscovered deeper catacombs appeared ins everal of the older Olthoi dungeons, and these deeper catacombs all connected to an even deeper dungeon, the Catacombs of Opposition. Elysa sent scouts to investigate these new tunnels, and the scouts left notes behind for adventurers to find. In the deepest catacombs a group of Isparian Olthoi fighters were found, having been cut off from the outside world since the days of The One Queen. These fighters were adept at crafting weapons from the remains of Olthoi.

Also need an Olthoi femur. That's the top part of the leg, in case you don't know. You been around Olthoi as much as us, you get to know a lot about 'em.

There's more of the bugs now, though. Guess you got down here in your fancy armor. Well, maybe you ain't leavin' either. Maybe we ain't leavin' too. Kinda cozy down here."
Mandible tells you, "Ooo hah! I love the smell of burnin' chitin in the morning. But down here ya never know when it's morning."
Mandible tells you, "Yeah, I'm tough but I sure like to eat grub bites. Nothin' better than grub bites. 'cept maybe the foot races we used to have back home. Those was fun. Here we just run from bugs. But then we turn and ambush 'em. Yeah that's right we tear 'em up."
