First quest on your way to acquiring Margrid the Sly.

Quest information[edit]



  • Meet Margrid the Sly on the Marga Coast.
  • Collect the map of Gandara from Unlucky Simon.
  • Strong-arm Shifty Lem until he gives up the map.
  • See Margrid the Sly for your reward.



Margrid the Sly is outside of Yohlon Haven. Take her to Unlucky Simon, who tells her that the map was taken by Shifty Lem. Go westward and talk to him. He will become hostile, so defeat him and his party. Shifty Lem will turn friendly again and you can complete the quest.




Humans (Corsairs) (initially friendly, hostile after approaching Lem)


Initial dialogue[edit]


"I know where Kormir is and will help you get her out...for a price, that is. I also need something in Gandara, so here is my proposition: you will help me find a map of Gandara so we can both get what we want, and we'll let the Master of Whispers deal with the Drought himself. If we have a deal, we should go find Unlucky Simon, otherwise, go meet with that snake, Whispers."
Yes Accept: "Kormir would do this for us."
No Decline: "I'm not interested in working with someone only out for herself."
Ask Ask: "Unlucky Simon said he would meet me by the Marga Coast after he stole the map. I'll be waiting there for you."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Margrid the Sly

"Took you long enough. Let's find Unlucky Simon. He'd better have that map I need or he's a dead man."
"Ho! Simon!"
"What happened to your eye? Lookin' real good, kid."

Unlucky Simon

"Lem said he had a waterproof container for the map. But as soon as I handed it to him, he punched me in the face and ran off with some of the other crew. My guess is he plans to sell it to the highest bidder. He can't have gotten far. Maybe you can still catch up to him."

Margrid the Sly

"Lem! If it wasn't for your sense of humor, I'd kill you!"

Shifty Lem

"Come on boys, we are in a tight spot!"

Shifty Lem

"This isn't what it looks like. In fact, it's not even what you think it looks like...
...Well, ok. It's pretty much exactly what you think. Here, take the map."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Margrid the Sly

"Finally, I have the map of Gandara! It won't be long 'til the diadem is mine. We must get this map interpreted as soon as possible, and I know just the guy for the job. I'm impressed with what I saw here. Maybe you actually do have a chance at rescuing Kormir."


  • Mutually exclusive with Secrets in the Shadow.
  • If you leave the map while doing the quest you will have to start at the beginning.
  • If, however, you leave after completion Margrid will wait for you in Marga Coast in front of Yohlon Haven where you first picked her up.


  • Shifty Lem's quote "Come on boys, we are in a tight spot" may be a reference to words spoken by George Clooney's shifty character in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
