Start Talk to Bestel
Objective Find his Manuscript
Completion Return his Manuscript


Bestel has asked you to find his Manuscript, which he left behind in the wreck of his ship on the Tidal Island.

Bestel: Now, I’m sure you’ve noticed that Lioneye’s Watch has seen better days. Our once bubbling township has, alas, become a brooding quagmire of gloom and despair. I blame the unrelenting weather.

As you know, I am both a humanitarian and a strong believer in the soul-sustaining power of story. Back days at sea afforded me time to work on my thespian aspirations. I wrote a theatrical epic, a one man show entitled “Cedric and the Buxom Stranger”.

I sealed the manuscript inside a roll of oiled leather and stashed it in the hold for safekeeping. Perhaps you could salvage it for me from that Tidal Island upon which my poor ship came to rest? Who knows, maybe we can bring some joy back to Lioneye’s Watch with a bit of live entertainment?

You have found Bestel's Manuscript, Bring it back to him in Lioneye's Watch.

You have returned Bestel's Manuscript to him. Talk to him for a reward.

Bestel: Marvelous! Ah yes, yes, it’s all here. Ahem, Act One, Scene One:

“Along the shoreline, the beach grass sways, A blazing sun sinks neath sparkling bays. O’ strange be the night when the drowned dead rise, And a pale moon ascends upon cold skies. The Stranger still is lost to me, those silken pillows upon which I lay at sea…”

Moody, atmospheric… not as funny as I remember, but I’m sure it gets better in Act Two. Regardless, you have my thanks. Please, take something for your efforts.

And next time you’re in town, do come and see the show. I’ll leave your name at the door… if I can salvage a door from somewhere, that is.
