Campaign Nightfall

Sunspear Scouts are placed near every resurrection shrine in Istan, and several shrines in Vabbi. These Sunspear Scouts will give you a bounty, which gives you double experience and differing Sunspear Promotion Points for every monster you kill of a determined type. These blessings can tell you to kill Corsairs, plants, insects, harpies, mandragors, skales, undead, heket, and minotaurs.



When not receiving the bounty because the level in the Sunspear rank is too high:

"An officer? Here? If I'd known such a high-ranking Sunspear would be coming today, I would have worn my dress uniform."
"It's not my place to say such things, but you'd really be more help to Istan if you took on a greater challange."
"Would you sign my armor? I can't wait to tell all my friends that I met a real Sunspear hero!"
"Hello! I didn't realize Kormir took our plant problem so seriously, to send a hero of your stature. Too seriously, I think. You should be doing something of real worth, not spending your time pruning shrubbery, if you don't mind my saying so."

Kournan Bounty (in Yatendi Canyons)

"I was in Vabbi when Varesh banished the Sunspears from Kourna and closed the borders. Since then, I've watched her military forces move north. They've got some incredibly strong soldiers in their midst... stronger than anything the princes have here! They must be stopped, but it's going to take a hero to do it! I've spotted Kournan troops in the area. Go after them while I keep my eyes open."
Accept: It's time to stop running. Let's show the Kournans who they're fighting!
Decline: I'm still on the run myself.
After receiving the bounty: You do not fight alone, friend. Take the battle to the Kournans!
First one, as introduction

Sunspear scouts are stationed at every resurrection shrine in Istan. We can tell you about some of the dangers in the area, and inform you of any bounties.

Do you have a bounty to offer?
Normal dialogue


When playing in Normal mode:

  • In the Plains of Jarin, you will not be able to add to the Sunspear title after you have achieved First Spear (300 Sunspear title points), or level 8.
  • In the Cliffs of Dohjok, you will not be able to add to the Sunspear title after you have reached Captain (500 Sunspear title points), or level 13.
  • In the Issnur Isles, you will not be able to add to the Sunspear title after you have reached the rank of Commander (1000 Sunspear title points).
  • One exception to these is if you are already in the area, you can continue adding to the blessing/bounty until you run out of critters to exterminate. You cannot, however, add a blessing in that area once you gain the aforementioned (Sunspear) level.
Anomaly Anomaly. Occasionally, when talking to the second (or more) scout that offers the same bounty (as one you already have) in that map area, they will say "I have already given you that bounty..." even though you have not yet talked to that specific scout.
