Detailed Walkthrough

Quest Offer

Are you free for a few days to do me a little favor, (player's first name)? I just need something I borrowed brought back to its owner. Nothing too strenuous, and you'll be (random gold) gold pieces richer. A tempting offer, eh?

Quest Acceptance

The noble goes on:

(exclamation), that's the spirit! I have this (religious item) I borrowed from my good friend (priestess' name), a priest in (temple) of (first town). It's somewhat of a rush to get it back to her -- she needs it in (first time limit) days. So please do hurry.

Quest Decline

The noble answers:

That's too bad. Well, I'll just hire someone else then.

Quest Object

Travel to the town mentioned by the noble and visit the priestess in the local temple. Give her the item you got from the noble and she will say:

Oh good, my (noble's item)'s back. Thank you, (player's first name). But there seems to be something stuck in it. Oh, I see ... this stone. Would you be good enough to bring this pebble over to (noble's name)'s friend, (noble's friend's name), over at (building) in (second town)? I believe (he/she) has your gold, but you better hurry. (noble's name) runs out of patience if (he/she) has to wait longer than (second time limit) days.

Travel with that new item to the noble's friend in the second town. Find him/her by asking around in town until you know his/her whereabouts. Meet him/her and hand over the gem you got from the priestess. Collect your reward afterwards.

On your way to the noble's friend you may run into some rogues trying to get the gem from you. You can hand it over to them or you can fight them. If you hand the item over, naturally you cannot complete the quest successfully.

Quest End

When the noble's friend gets the gem, he/she will say:

Ah, good. The (gem) is as exquisite as I'd been told. Fine work, (player's first name). Here's your (random gold) gold for your speed and silence.
