Initial dialogue[edit]

Farrah Cappo
"That Little Thom, he's a blight on the honor of this unit. We've been out here doin' what no one else will, and he goes and deserts. Where's the honor? Where's the pride? Where's his loyalty to those of us who stuck our necks out to protect his sorry butt? If you see that lowly dog, you tell him that Farrah Cappo can hold a grudge for a long, long time. He'd better sleep light, because if we ever get out of this hole, I'm coming for him, and he's gonna wish he never left us."
Yes Accept: "I'll tell him if I see him."
No Decline: "Your problems with Little Thom are your own."
Ask Ask: "It still just burns my hide when I think of how Little Thom went and deserted. If I ever see that pile of devourer dung again, I'm gonna tear his liver out with my teeth."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

<Party leader>: "Barradin's badge. This must be Little Thom."

Reward dialogue[edit]

Farrah Cappo
"Little Thom is dead? I don't think so. That weasel had a special talent for hiding from danger. The badge you say you found on his body is only further proof it wasn't him. You see, he lost that badge gambling two nights before we crossed the Wall."
"At any rate, I appreciate the trouble you went to in looking for him. You know, it pleases me to think he's still alive, running around out there, causing trouble still... Means I still have a chance to be the one to give him his comeuppance. Yeah, I'm going to enjoy that."


  • Obviously, this is not Little Thom. It is simply an Ascalon Guard, who was probably set up by Thom to get away.
Bug Bug.Sometimes, due to lag, when the player reaches Farrah Cappo after finding Little Thom, the quest does not finish. Instead, the quest reverts to finding him again.
