A surprisingly fierce run-in with an "evil spirit" has left the three longstanding members of the Crest battered and in bad spirits... looks as if you're on your own from here on out...

Opt for the longer route, investigate, rescue the captive and "turn away" from the Kurnok.

The Long Shadows Edit

Warning: Once you do this section, Teek's shop in Blade Square is no longer accessible. Be sure you've finished your business there first.

The text of this story has a slight difference depending on if you have or have not Shadow Magic yet.

If you have it
"I know that you are versed in this craft as well," she continues. "That should help make things a bit easier later on. When there is time, I can help to hone your skill with it."
If you don't have it
"I know you are not versed in this craft," she says, "but should there prove to be time, I will see to it that you acquire it, for it will help make things a bit easier later on."

You'll be forced out of the coach by a shadow and lose some SP (6-11 SP). Then you'll be questioned by Traeltok. You can:

  • Use Telekinesis (50+)/Unarmed Combat (40+)/Thievery (50+) against Traeltok for 32 XP
  • Attempt to regain your feet: Random check (1-100 + Agility * 1 + Luck * 1). 106 is a win. 98 is a fail. You take no damage if you pass. You regain your feet but take ~17 SP damage if you don't pass

After this, you have the option to engage Traeltok or flee (recommended):

  • You should not engage Traeltok (9+ at MR 150 Exact, 175 SP, ~130 XP), can resist some powers unless you're able to defeat him, which only yields combat XP (57 XP, using Powers). NOTE: Even if you do lethal combat with him and lose, Traeltok will not kill you, and you do not suffer a defeat for this section.
  • While you are fleeing, you'll have to endure a psionic attack: Random check (1-100 + Mind * 1 + Aura * 1 + Spirit * 2.0). 101 is a win. No damage if you pass. Failure result in heavy (87 recorded) damage.

Just as a dozen more assailants prepare to attack you, unexpected reinforcements come in the form of a brightly decorated wagon that disperses your enemies.

The Road to Talinus: Shaking Pursuit Edit

After a short rest in the town of Duir-South, you continue on through the countryside with Coalmyr, and finally arrive in Talinus. Coalmyr warns that you're being followed. Parting from him, you try to lose the men who follow you, and when it seems that you've finally succeeded, you start to make your way towards Grimswick. Having nearly reached the village, you're attacked by a massive, black shadow dragon. You can:

After that failed sneak attack, the dragon assaults you with its black flame breath. You can:

Completion reward
  • 256 general XP

The Eye of The Storm Edit

A brief recess to rest, as this part is only story. You meet with Halanne and Harrakyr, who is revealed to be the one of the men following you in Talinus. The other man is revealed as none other than Rynduil. He confides that Pryhan and Idriskkar have fallen to Magraxxa's mind control, and that they arrived at the secret place you're at by the advice of the same young urchin who aided Halanne and you. They present you with a thin book with a worn leather cover. An ornate but tarnished brass clasp holds the book closed, and your name is stitched on the cover with silvery thread. As you grasp the book, it opens to reveal a large black gem. The young boy also appears, to finally reveal himself as Nirith. He imparts upon you that he will soon die and can no longer act by himself due to his frail health. He commissions you to find the fabled Eye of Arngaror: a large, enchanted emerald which Nirith believes has the power to counteract and dispel mind-affecting magic. That artifact will be the undoing of Magraxxa's plans to dominate the whole of the North Broadlands. Finally, he reveals that the black gem is a stone of conveyance, and upon your touch you're invested with part of the old master's knowledge.

You receive 16,384 XP to Shadow Magic -- if you do not already possess that power, you will gain it at level 10 and then receive the experience. This will also increase your Stats to the required levels for wielding magic, if they were previously too low. Moreover, the stone has imparted to you a window into Nirith's own spirit, through which he hopes to be able to aid you as best he can, even when he is no longer among the living.

Completion reward
  • 256 general XP

    • Traeltok (9+ at MR 136-137 Approx, 300 SP, 100 XP), up to ~30 SP psionic attack, can't FLEE, after which he revives and readies for a second battle, but not before Rynduil uses SM to slip The Eye of Arngaror into the palm of your hand, at which point you're warned that an item now in your possession can be put to use. You can choose to unleash the power of the Eye against Traeltok Random check (1-100 + Spirit * 0.50 + Aura * 1 + Arcana * 1). 50 or more needed to pass, then another Random check (1-100 + Mind * 1 + Aura * 1 + Spirit * 2). 80 or more needed to pass against a psionic attack; rolling 83 resulted in the loss of 13 SP, followed by another roll to use the Eye, same as the first), or engage him directly. If you do choose to use the Eye against Traeltok, he unexpectedly demands that you do it again. Oblige him, and the scenario ends successfully - you receive the completion XP reward (see below).
  • Attack Traeltok
  • Retrieve the Eye
  • You will be prompted twice here that an item should be used. Use the Eye.
  • 1024 general xp for completion.

The Village of ShadowEdit

You and Traeltok seek out Magraxxa's temple and must pass through Pirth-Starn, a village which is now only a shadow of what it was 600 years ago. 32 XP to general for a successful disguise - Random check (1-100 + Luck * 0.50 + Mind * 0.50 + Spirit * 1 + Aura * 0.50). 111 is a win. You find the dragon in a tavern masquerading as a mandolin player, his voice resounds in your mind after you exit it and the villagers form a mob. Traeltok is sucked into a pool a shadow, a feeling of weakness causes the loss of most of your NV (5 remaining observed) and you must fight a series of shadow minion villagers (all 3+ with a MR of 110; their SP and MR vary slightly on different play-throughs):

    • Hulking Blacksmith (9+ at MR 78-82 Variable, variable 89-93 SP, 6 XP)
    • Sword-Wielding Villager (9+ at MR 75-77 Approx, variable 70-71 SP, 3 XP)

    • Village Swordsman (9+ at MR 81-86 Variable, variable 140-148 SP, 5 XP)
  • 384 general XP for completion.

The Minions of ShadowEdit

  • TIP! Fight Defensively! The amount of damage you do in a subduing battle doesn't change, but defensive fighting significantly decreases the damage inflicted upon you. Also don't forget that while most offensive spells aren't allowed in a subduing fight, shadow magic and Telekinesis are.
    Choose Sir Garilin. The XP reward is higher, and he's usually easier to defeat.
  • All opponents (with the possible exception of the Elementals which are 3+ @ <= MR 261; quick combat: 17 rounds; lost only 4 SP) are 3+ to hit with MR 111; however, you must subdue them all, and each one has a special attack.
  • 32 XP to Elementalism (60+) if you use it to get rid of the Elementals
  • 32 XP to Fortification (60+)/Elementalism (60+) if you block the bolt of flame (Both tested)
  • Archmage Kalath (9+ at MR 75 Exact, 100 SP, 2 XP)
  • Choose an opponent:
    NOTE: Once you choose an opponent, you don't get a chance to heal until all the end of the scenario.
  • Two battles with 6 Tysian Soldiers (9+ at MR 75 Exact, 200 SP, 1 XP).
  • 16 XP to Fortification (60+)/Elementalism (60+) if you block Fethmur's arc of flames (Both tested)
  • Fethmur (9+ at MR 95 Exact, 125 SP, 65 XP)
  • 384 general exp for completion.

The Master of ShadowEdit

The Lair of ShadowEdit

  • 8 general experience every time you manage to resist a mind probe by passing a Random check (1-100 + Mind * 1 + Aura * 1 + Spirit * 1). 85 is a win. roll needed likely lower (so make sure you don't miss any of them)
  • Note: If you have a quickstone, it will, like the rest of your equipment, be missing until you defeat the skeletons. You will not be able to heal using the stone. However, if you've completed the quickstone 20's upgrade, you will be able to use your stored 20's.
  • Sneak up on the skeletons - Random check (1-100 + Thievery * 0.25 + Agility * 1 + Luck * 0.50). 109 is a win.
    • Success: 2 Red-Eyed Skeletons (9+ at MR ??-43 Approx, 70 SP, 18+ XP), can't FLEE and a Hooded Skeleton (9+ at MR ??-43 Approx, 85 SP, 18+ XP), can't FLEE.
    • Failure unreported.
  • 32 XP to Illusion (60+)/Shadow Magic (60+)/Telekinesis (60+)/Necromancy (60+)/Thievery (60+) if used to get rid of the skeletons (All tested)
  • 768 general XP for completion.
