Lore & Dialog

Shade of Farelaith tells you, "You... Yes, you could help me, mortal. I need you to slay my younger brothers, who were corrupted into beings of Shadow by our former master, Grael. Please, you must enter this Temple of the Stirring Shadow. The temple has three wings, and one of my brothers serves in each wing. They have lost their names and faces to the Shadow corruption, but they still bear their own weapons... I was a mage in my past life, mortal. Help me, and I shall reward you."
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Enter the South Wing first, and seek out my poor youngest brother, Baranaith. He wielded a spear in life, as he does now in the shadow. Bring me his spear so that I may know his torment is no more."


Shadow Phantom's seared corpse smolders before you!
You hear the plaintive voice of the shadow that once was Baranaith cry out: "Farelaith! My brother! Where is my older brother, who said he would guide and protect me?"

You give Shade of Farelaith Spear of Baranaith.
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Oh, my brother's spear! Baranaith was my youngest brother. He was barely more than a child when we were taken to the slave pits of Haebrous. I failed him, most of all..."
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Take this spear, mortal, as an instrument of vengeance. I have infused it with some portion of my power."
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Now go into the North Wing and seek out my brother Korogaith. You will know him by his axe."

Shade of Farelaith gives you Spear of Winter Flame.


Shadow Phantom is incinerated by your assault!
You hear the husky voice of the shadow that once was Korogaith cry out: "Farelaith! My brother! Where is my older brother, who abandoned us to the abomination of Grael?"

Shade of Farelaith tells you, "You have my brother Korogaith's axe? Please, give it to me, so that I know that he has been granted oblivion."
You give Shade of Farelaith Axe of Korogaith.
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "This is indeed the axe of my brother Korogaith. He was just a few years older than Baranaith. He was a hunter and a woodsman without peer. He was the one who tracked down Grael in the wilderness... Oh, would that we had never found that accursed soul again, but perished together in the snow..."
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Take this axe. I have infused it with some portion of my power, to serve as an instrument of vengeance against the dark powers that corrupted my brothers."
Shade of Farelaith gives you Axe of Winter Flame.
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Now go into the East Wing, the last of the wings, and seek out my brother Hiranaith. You will know him by his mace."


Shadow Phantom is incinerated by your assault!
You hear the booming voice of the shadow that once was Hiranaith cry out: "Farelaith! My brother! Where is my older brother, whom I once defended against all others?"

Shade of Farelaith tells you, "You have my brother Hiranaith's mace? Please, give it to me, so that I know that he has been granted oblivion."
You give Shade of Farelaith Mace of Hiranaith.
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "Oh, my brother Hiranaith. This is his mace, with which he served in the town guard, before our father was forced to sell us to the imperial slavers. Hiranaith was a year younger than me, but twice as strong. He was my protector in the slave pits. Alas, I could not help him in his time of need..."
Shade of Farelaith tells you, "I have infused the mace with some portion of my power. Take it and use it against the shadowy things which corrutped us. I give you also my journal, that you may know something of Grael, who was once our master and twice betrayed his followers."

You've earned 1,500,000 experience.
Shade of Farelaith gives you Mace of Winter Flame.
Shade of Farelaith gives you Farelaith's Untranslated Journal.


You give Edobar the Esoteric Farelaith's Untranslated Journal. You've earned 500,000 experience.
Edobar the Esoteric tells you, "What a fascinating account. I am immensely grateful you brought this to my attention. It sheds such a great deal of light on the mystery of Grael!"
Edobar the Esoteric gives you Our Bitter Winter.


Shade of Farelaith tells you, "You have helped me already, have you not, mortal? I know your kind are quick of thought and short of memory..."
