Enter the Plains of Jarin from Kamadan. Entering from here will bring you the closest to the NPCs to whom you must talk. Talk to Kormir and then to Nerashi to acquire the recruits. Take them to the skale southwest from your position. Kill all the skale there and walk back to Ahtok. Speak to him and then Rojis to complete the quest.

Dialogue[edit]

Initial dialogue[edit]

Castellan Puuba
I hope you have a strong stomach. Dunkoro and Koss have been preparing battle plans. The current assessment is that we don't have enough support ships to stage a successful assault. That is to say, once we arrive at our destination we may not get back.
Kormir is waiting on the Plains of Jarin to brief you. There's much work to be done in terms of recruiting and training. Make sure everything is done in a timely manner. Are you ready?
Yes Accept: "As ready as I'll ever be."
No Decline: "I'll get back to you on that."
Ask Ask: "Kormir is waiting on the Plains of Jarin. There is much work to do!"

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Kormir: <Party leader>, you have done well in my absence. Tell me what you know of Nightfall and Abaddon."
<Party leader>: "We've uncovered a connection between the corsairs and General Kahyet. She is a worshipper of a deity named Abaddon."
Kormir: "Indeed. I have learned much in my travels and can tell you more. Once there were not five gods, but six. The sixth was Abaddon, imprisoned by his siblings in the Realm of Torment. Stories say that one day Abaddon will break the confines of his cell and release terror upon the land in an event only known as Nightfall."
<Party leader>: "And Kahyet worships this monster?"
Kormir: "She does, as does Varesh. Unless we stop her she will bolster the power of her dark god and eventually unleash fury upon the world. Time is of the essence. We must attack Varesh's fortress at Gandara, capture her, and bring her to justice. Otherwise...."
<Party leader>: "You lead, we shall follow. You do not fight alone."
Kormir
It's good you are here, <Character name>. We must strike quickly and with overwhelming force. The Kournan troops are no match for even the dullest Sunspear recruit. With the element of surprise we can topple them in one fell swoop and end the treacherous reign of Varesh Ossa. I have no doubt we will win this upcoming war. But before we launch our attack our troops must be battle ready. Speak to Nerashi and help her train the new recruits.
Nerashi
These recruits were handpicked from Istan's best. Some are old members of the Shore Watch, having bloodied their swords defending their villages from corsair raids. Others are fresh off the farm. We must motivate them before sending them into battle...teach them to wield their scythes for reaping not grain, but pain! We've reports of a group of skale that have entered the Plains of Jarin. Your job is to lead the recruits to the south and kill the skale to give them a taste of battle. Report to Ahtok when you're done.
Ahtok
Nice job on training those recruits. Do ya like big weapons? Rojis has me arming these boats with enormous catapults like the ones at Chahbek! Things are going to get a lot bloodier around these parts. I can't wait! See if Rojis needs your help with anything.
Rojis
I hope Kormir can secure more support boats. We have enough to get troops there but not enough for a return trip if anything catastrophic happens. Best not to think of the worst, but Kormir has a tendency to overreach. Right now my mind is on other matters, like figuring out a way to increase the range on our catapults. Report to Castellan Puuba for more orders.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Castellan Puuba
Nice work with the recruits. Continue honing your leadership skills and your enemies won't stand a chance on the battlefield. Preparations are almost ready. The assault begins soon....
