Journal

Objectives

  • A Dance with Death
    • Captain Furrante is convinced that the only way to Ukaizo starts by gaining command of Lucia Rivan's Floating Hangman. With the Engoliero do Espirs in my possession, I'm to sail to sea and draw the undead Darcozzi paladin to me.
    • (Alternate) Aeldys has asked me to meet in Dunnage, from where she plans to organize the hunt for Lucia Rivan's spectral ship, the Floating Hangman. 
    • (Alternate) Aeldys is convinced that the only way to Ukaizo starts by gaining command of Lucia Rivan's Floating Hangman. With the Engoliero do Espirs in my possession, I'm to sail to sea and draw the undead Darcozzi paladin to me. 
  • Speak the Darcozzi Oath with Engoliero do Espirs at sea
    • Lucia Rivan became a Death Guard because of her undying devotion to an oath she took to protect the Engoliero do Espirs. Aeldys discovered that speaking the dying oath of the Darcozzi while wielding the sword activates an aura that acts as a beacon for Rivan. I should take the weapon to the sea, and speak those words.
  • Face Lucia Rivan
    • I spoke the oath and the sword emitted energy like a burning flame. Its power has drawn the Floating Hangman, and Rivan, to me. The time to face her has finally come.
  • Return to Dunnage with the Floating Hangman
    • I have successfully acquired the Floating Hangman from Rivan. All that is left is to meet the Príncipi's leader in Dunnage to prepare the fleet for our journey to Ukaizo.
  • Sail with the Príncipi into Ondra's Mortar
    • The Príncipi fleet awaits my signal to set sail. Once I am ready, the Príncipi are prepared to sail with me into the storms.
  • Reclaim Engoliero do Espirs from Yseyr the Berathian
    • The only way to draw Rivan out into the open is by speaking the Darcozzi oath before her old sword, Engoliero do Espirs. The sword is currently guarded by Yseyr the Berathian in the Hanging Selpuchers beneath the Sacred Stair in Neketaka.
  • Speak with the Príncipi's leader in the Balefire Beacon of Dunnage
    • If I'm to find a way to reach Ukaizo through my alliance with the Príncipi then I'm expected to meet its leader in Dunnage. It's time to take on Rivan's Floating Hangman, the Fonferrus.

 

End States

  • I successfully braved Ondra's Mortar with the help of the Príncipi fleet.
  • Someone critical to this quest has died.

      When I completed this quest Pallagena left my party with no warning, just a letter as I was sailing, not even any dialogue from her during the quest
