Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Aerona Berendas needs help finding her brother, Dethisam. He was checking on the townsfolk affected by the Llodos Plague the day before but disappeared.

The first house on the left belongs to Bili Hlan. Her place is a mess, and she's vomiting. She saw Dethisam and can provide more information about the plague. The next house is Ornis Verobar's. He is Aerona's uncle, and tells you that Dethisam seemed concerned about the Maulborn. The Maulborn apparently sealed themselves in their quarantine and refused to provide any more curative. The next house is Grell Flan's, but he has turned into a Plague Husk.

Having visited all of the villagers, the two of you decide to check out the Maulborn quarantine. Aerona tells you that her brother gave the Maulborn the key to Serk's old graveyard so they could set up their quarantine, and that she's seen some Maulborn coming and going through a back door. When you approach said door in an attempt to find the key, The Maulborn standing guard attack you. The key is in a Maulborn Pack next to the door. Take the key and enter the quarantine. There are plague husks everywhere. Pass through into the Serk Catacombs.

Inside the Serk Catacombs, you discover that the Maulborn are trying to turn the townspeople into violent "husks." Further inside, you and Aerona find Dethisam on the floor, consumed by plague. He reveals that the Maulborn are the source of the Llodos Plague and want everyone to become infected. The Maulborn curative is actually the source of the disease.

You can choose to convince Aerona to leave her brother's side or convince Dethisam there is still time for him to be cured.

Enter the plague production chamber. As you enter, there is a bottle of Plague Husk Scent on some crates. Using it will allow you to pass the Plague Husks, unless you attack them. Destroy the Maulborn research and stock piles in the last room.

Reunite with Aerona at her uncle's house. The town alchemist is working on a cure for the plague, and Aerona thanks you for your help.
