Quest Stages[edit]

Hatching a Plan
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Foreman Lathdar demanded that Revus make good on his pledge to aid the miners. I must find the Telvanni mage and secure his help.
Objective: Find Revus
I located Revus. I should speak to him about Foreman Lathdar's demands.
Objective: Talk to Revus
Revus insists that he had a kwama queen egg in his nursery, but cliff striders snatched it while he was studying the Dwarven resonator. I must locate his stolen eggs and mark them with a divining stone so Revus can recover them.
Objective: Mark the Egg-Heaps with Revus's Divining Stone
I marked the egg-heaps with Revus' divining stone. I should return to Revus' nursery to let him know.
Objective: Meet Revus at the Hatchery
Objective: Talk to Revus
Revus urged me to return to town while he arranges transportation for the eggs. I should tell Foreman Lathdar what's going on.
Objective: Return to the Foreman
Revus delivered the eggs, but something is amiss. I should speak to him about it.
Objective: Talk to Revus
Revus fears that the kwama queen might hatch prematurely. Soothing music should keep the queen sedate. Revus recommended a singer named Vigard. I should search for this bard to the south of town.
Objective: Recruit Vigard the Sparrow
Objective Hint: Save the Bard
Objective Hint: Talk to Vigard
The singer, Vigard, agreed to help. I should return to Gnisis.
Objective: Return to Gnisis
The Redoran deputy-prefect, Manore, asked to speak with me. He looks upset.
Objective: Talk to Manore
Revus is prepared to break the royal egg free from its casing. I should meet him by the dock to make sure everything goes as planned.
Objective: Help Uncover the Royal Egg
Revus broke the royal egg free from it's egg-heap. Unfortunately, one of the eggs contained a raging cliff strider. I killed the beast, but not before it slew the singer, Vigard. I should find Revus to discuss our next move.
Objective: Talk to Revus
Our last best chance at saving the egg mine is to plant the royal egg directly into the mine's nursery chamber. I should meet Revus at the door to the nursery, inside the mine.
Objective: Meet Revus at the Nursery
The royal egg is preparing to hatch. I must plant it in the nursery chamber before that happens. Kwama workers will almost certainly attack. I should be prepared to fight.
Objective: Hatch the Royal Egg in the Nursery
Objective Hint: Defend the Royal Egg
I defended the royal egg long enough for the new kwama queen to emerge. Both the colony and the Gnisis mining operation are saved. I should inform Foreman Lathdar of our success.
Objective: Talk to Foreman Lathdar
☑Finishes quest With a new queen, the Gnisis egg mine will start producing again soon. I should have a final word with Foreman Lathdar.
Objective: Talk to the Foreman
