Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Adiel Charnis.
  2. Go to the dreugh spawning pools.
  3. Search mudpiles for trapped Dreughsiders.
  4. Search the mud pile by the statue of Saint Stentis.
  5. Talk with Arcady Charnis.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When you first encounter Sergeant Stegine in Dreughside, he will mention that Adiel Charnis has reported that her husband was kidnapped by dreugh; however, he is unable to help her. Approaching her outside of her home, she will explain her trouble:

They took my husband. He was only trying to defend our homes, but the dreugh took him.
Please, stranger, can you help?
Slow down. Who took whom?
The dreugh. They attacked us out of nowhere.
My husband tried to fight back. Those things wounded him and dragged him off!
Dragged him off? To where?
To their spawning pools. Arcady might still be alive!
I'll find him.
May the Eight bless you for helping us.
Please, find my Arcady.

Having agreed to find Adiel's husband, follow the main path to the southwest, until you reach the dreugh's spawning grounds. Once there, begin searching through mudpiles, freeing the trapped Dreughsiders that had been captured alongside Arcady. The fifth Dreughsider to be rescued will report having seen Arcady being dragged towards a statue of King Joile, to the southwest. Head in that direction. Once you reach a statue of Saint Stentis, find and destroy the nearby mud pile. Good news—Arcady is alive! He's been stuck in a pile of mud for a while, though, so you'll need to make sure that he's all right.

I can breathe again. Thank the Eight, I can breathe!
Are you hurt? What happened?
I'm not hurt, but I'd be dead without you. The dreugh were keeping us for food and feeding us to their young!
The little ones would gnaw through the mud and ... it doesn't matter now. I'm going to find whoever's responsible for this.
