Confront the Fate-Bearers

When you read one of the A Call to the Worthy notes scattered around Kvatch, you are instructed to talk with Reman Mevavius inside The Eight Blessings inn. You find Reman on the ground floor, standing beside the stock room doorway. He tells you there is a killer on the loose that sends his soon-to-be victims a sweetroll with a message inside. Further, he informs you that the killer has targeted Reman's associates. Reman gives you a list of his associates that have received the death threat and suggests that you learn the connection they share in order to find the killer before they strike again. Once you are done speaking with the man, leave the inn for the streets of Kvatch. You must interview four individuals: Dobias, Louna, Tuindal, and Yarmia.

Since Yarmia is closest, go talk to her first. Yarmia at first denies having received a sweetroll, claiming to be a simple beggar. She gets fairly upset and nervous when you question her, but she does admit to receiving a sweetroll. When she runs away, follow her. If you fail to follow her immediately, you will get a second chance to do so. Running after her is easily done, despite Yarmia throwing apples at you every now and then. When she finally stops, Yarmia halts beside Razum-dar and calls out for help to the guards with a claim that she found the Sweetroll Killer.

Razum-dar wants to talk to you about Yarmia's behavior. He informs you that he feels being a spy might not be the best path for the girl. When you press Razum-dar to find out more information, he tells you that he is also on the hunt for the Sweetroll Killer. He suggests that the three of you meet in private in a safe house once your investigation is finished.

Once you are done speaking with Razum-dar, the next target you are closest to is Tuindal. Go speak with him. Tuindal is immediately angry at you, telling you that he is a baker and that people have been calling him the killer and staying away from his merchandise as a result of his profession. He confirms for you that he received a deadly sweetroll, and he tells you that he met some of the other victims when they accused him of being the killer. Tell Tuindal that you have been hired to find the sweetroll killer. If you want to keep him alive, tell Tuindal to alter his routine so that the murderer cannot find him.

Go next to speak with Dobias Sophus, who is nearby. He confirms for you that he received a sweetroll inside a small box. Ask him if anyone else he knows received a sweetroll and he will tell you that a deceased Wood Elf merchant he worked with received one. When you ask him if he works with Remus Mevavius, he claims that he would rather not talk about that. Tell him that you were hired to find and stop the murderer, and he will ask what you think he should do. To keep him alive, tell Dobias Sophus to continue wandering the market and stay near other people.

The last person that you must speak with is Louna, who also confirms the receipt of a sweetroll. When you tell her that you were asked to look into the murders, she offers you information on her husband's murder and Reman. Though you offer to help her, she declines, stating that she is going to hide in a house in Anvil. She also warns you to watch out for Reman. Head over to the Famula's Wonders shop to speak with Razum-dar and Yarmia; they are waiting for you on the second floor. Talk with Razum-dar first to find out that the murderer killed some of Queen Ayrenn's advisors and escaped, which is why he is hunting the Sweetroll Killer. He tells you that he and Yarmia are setting a trap but he is concerned about the messenger network the murderer is using. So the plan is to locate a messenger and puzzle out what the messenger has placed around town. Razum-dar hopes this will lead to the killer's whereabouts. When you ask about Yarmia, he tells you that she is still in training.

To keep Yarmia alive, tell Razum-dar his idea is good. If Yarmia cannot handle a weapon, she should not have one.

Your next task is to track the messengers the killer is using. Exit the shop and Razum-dar tells you that he believes one of the messengers is near the hedge maze. Go west to locate the hedge maze and enter it. Razum-dar suggests you find a statue or something that can be used to hide things. When you enter the maze on the left side of Panundus's House, head in a northward direction until you find a large statue with a Suspicious Message at its base. The message reads:

The Beautiful Darkness asked that we alter our drop locations for the next state of research. Deposit the scrolls with your findings at these new locations around Kvatch. An accurate map requires all parts listed below.

Place your code at the bottom so the next runner can deliver it.
- Wolf's Everlasting Stream
- Perch Above the Sport Fighter
- Eternal Knight
- Where we Gaze Down on the Streets

Razum-dar tasks you with solving the riddle to find the four hidden messages. Exit the maze to begin your search. The clues may be found as followed:

Clue Clue Leads To Location Riddle Inside Note
Wolf's Everlasting Stream In the fountain west of Famula's Wonders South of the Bank
Perch Above the Sport Fighter In the stands of Kvatch Arena Not on the Main Road
Eternal Knight At the base of the stone statue in front of Castle Kvatch Inside the Building Where Three Paths Meet.
Where we Gaze Down on the Streets Bridge connecting Famula's Wonders to The Eight Blessings East of the Cathedral.

If you wait long enough after discovering all four clues, Raz will solve the riddle for you.


  • To keep all allies alive, choose the following options: tell Dobius Sophus to remain in the market; tell Tuindal to alter his routine; do not give Yarmia a weapon.

To learn more about this "urgent matter," I need to travel to the inn in Kvatch and seek out an Imperial named Reman Mavavius [sic].

Razum-dar thinks the messengers delivering notes throughout Kvatch might be connected to the Sweetroll Killer. He wants me to meet him outside so we can track the messengers and see what their notes have to say.

Objective Hint: Wolf's Everlasting Stream
Objective Hint: Where We Gaze Down On the Streets
Objective Hint: Eternal Knight

Naryu and Raz have agreed to work together to track the Sweetroll Killer down. I should meet them in Anvil, where most of our current targets have gone to hide. We'll plan our next move there.

Objective: Find Reman At the Gold Coast Trading Company
Reman was somehow involved with the Sweetroll Killer. He was using me to eliminate the killer and hide his involvement. But the killer found out and killed him instead. I should meet Naryu and Raz at Engar's Hostel [sic] and tell them what I learned.
Objective: Report to Your Allies
The Sweetroll Killer has a farmhouse southeast of Anvil. I should head out and meet Naryu and Raz there.

Objective: Confront Louna Inside the Farmhouse
I should confer with Naryu and Razum-dar about what to do with the Sweetroll Killer.
Objective: Talk to Your Companions
I can either kill Louna or let her live. There are advantages and disadvantages to both options, but the decision is up to me.
Objective: Determine the Fate of Louna
We let Louna go. Now I should meet Razum-dar at the enchanter's shop in Kvatch and make sure the case of the Sweetroll Killer is really closed. (If you chose to let Louna live)
