Objectives[edit]

Reward[edit]

Walkthrough[edit]

Invite a henchman or a player to your party and walk though the portal to Old Ascalon in Ascalon City. Walk forward and you will see a little camp ahead, head there. Beware of the two Devourers that pop up from the ground next to the bridge if you get too close to them. If you're a warrior, you can easily pick up quests from Warmaster Grast who is on the route of this quest (after the bridge).

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Warmaster Tydus
"I have an important task for you. Please deliver this royal message to Ambassador Zain of Kryta. His camp can be found just outside the city. Go out the western gate to Old Ascalon and head west to find the encampment."
"I don't trust these Krytans. I want you to take someone with you in case there's trouble. I'm sure Alesia will be willing to go with you, and she can heal you if need be."
Yes Accept: "You can rely on me."
No Decline: "This is too great a burden. I am not worthy."
(not in a party)
Ask Ask: "I thought I told you not to try this on your own. Forming a party is a simple matter. Find someone willing to go with you and simply invite them into your group. Alesia or any of the others standing by the gate will be more than happy to join you, I'm sure."
(while in a party)
Ask Ask: "Have you delivered the message yet? I chose you for this take because I thought you were reliable."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Ambassador Zain
(if alone)
"You don't look like a royal messanger, but perhaps that explains why you have come alone. Do you know that every messenger King Adelbern has sent has come with a large escort? If I didn't know better, I'd think he was trying to intimidate me. Now then, what is it you were saying?
No Decline: "Never mind. I'll be back later."

Observed dialog

Prince Rurik: "Greetings Ambassador Zain. Let me be the first to welcome you to Ascalon."
Ambassador Zain: "Ah, Prince Rurik. I thank you for your kind words. I will admit, I was nervous about this meeting. Our initial reception here in Ascalon City has been...less than warm."
Prince Rurik: "So I have heard. I apologize for my father. He means well and does what he thinks is best for his country, but sometimes his stubborn memory of the last Guild War gets in his way."
Ambassador Zain: "The days of war between our two nations are over. We are here in the name of Kryta to give aid to Ascalon. We ask for nothing in return, and wish only to be of service."
Prince Rurik: "We would be foolish to allow our pride to stand in the way of such a generous offer."
Ambassador Zain: "Now I see why the people of Ascalon so admire you, Rurik. When it is your turn, you will be a good king. A good king indeed."
Prince Rurik: "Thank you, Ambassador. Now I must take my leave. I will talk with the king. Perhaps I can change his mind and gain you access to the city."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Ambassador Zain
"A message with the royal seal? Let's see. Honored Ambassador et cetera...et cetera..."Your request for permission to enter the city and address the people of Ascalon is emphatically denied. This being the fourth such denial, His Majesty bids you reconsider this ill-conceived journey and contemplate a return to Kryta.""
"King Adelbern and I have learned very different lessons from the wars of past. Isolation is not the answer. Only in peace and mutual friendship shall we find our salvation. I still have hope that in time, he will realize the truth of this."
