Walkthrough

  • Once you made a fame in the Gullet, Dereo, the local crime lord will send a messenger to you. Invite you to his lair (Dereo's Lair) through the Narrow. (Turn right, turn right, turn left, tell the guards Dereo want to meet you.)
  • Dereo wants you to find Cornet of Waves from Takano's Villa at Serpent's Crown for him.
  • Visit Takano, use your watcher ability to read his soul. Point out that he doesn't really need the artifact, it belongs to someone who truly understands it's meaning. You can then persuade him to sell the Cornet of Waves for 750cp.
  • A related artifact, Cornet of Depth, can be found at the temple ruins of Old City Overlook. (Dive down into the pool in the center of the Old City Overlook. Need about 16 Constitution to get it. You can either enter the Old City via Undercroft, or the lift in the Gullet)
  • Open the Temple of Ondra (located in the northwestern section of the Old City proper) using the shell, kill or avoid the giant cave grub inside. If you have both shells, you can access the hidden room.
  • After you explore the temple ruins in Old City, report to Dereo.

Objectives

  • The Cornett's Call
    • Dereo the Lean, a crime lord in the Gullet, seeks a valuable artifact known as the Cornett of Waves.
    • (Alternate) Dereo is looking for a mosaic in the Old City. The cornett will lead me to it. 
    • (Alternate) A person of influence has taken an interest in me. I've been asked to meet him in the Narrows. 
  • Get the Cornett of Waves from Takano's villa in Serpent's Crown
    • Dereo asked me to get an artifact called the Cornett of Waves from the Mataru, Takano, who owns it.
    • Dereo wants the cornett more badly than he lets on. He said it's valuable, but he didn't elaborate.
    • I'm not the first to attempt this job. Dereo originally hired someone else, but she didn't come through.
    • Dereo said a related artifact, the Cornett of Depths, was lost when the Old City sank.
    • I've hired Rust to acquire the Cornett of Waves for me. The assassin will need a full day to get the job done.
    • According to Takano, a similar conch was lost when the Old City sank. Several Ondrites perished alongside it, doomed never to rise unless the shell did.
    • Takano isn't especially attached to the Cornett of Waves, and he's short on coin. Perhaps he'd be willing to sell it.
  • Meet Gwenfin in the Undercroft
    • Gwenfin waits for me - and the cornett - in the Undercroft, near an ancient, Huana-style door. Dereo told me to reach her via a lift in Delver's Row, which is separate from the Gullet.
    • Specifically, the lift is next to Ernezzo's shop in Delver's Row.
    • Gwenfin is outside an ancient Huana ruin in the Undercroft, near the fort there.
    • Gwenfin thinks I can use the cornett to open a door by the Ondrite statue.
    • I've killed Gwenfin. It's up to me to figure out how to use the cornett and get what Dereo wants.
  • Find a temple of Ondra in the Old City
    • Apparently, the mosaic Dereo's looking for is in an old temple somewhere in the ruins. Gwenfin asked me to tell her where it is once I find it.
    • There's a mural in the Old City ruins depicting two conch shells.
    • I found a conch inscribed with Ondrite symbols in the Old City.
  • Report back to Gwenfin at the entrance to the Undercroft
    • I found the temple of Ondra and saw an elaborate mosaic of a place called Ukaizo embedded in the wall. This must be what Dereo was looking for. Gwenfin waits to hear from me at the passage between the Undercroft and the Old City.
    • In the temple, I found a wall carving with two sockets. Each was the right size and shape to fit the cornett.
  • Return to Dereo in the Narrows
    • Gwenfin is on her way to secure the temple. She asked me to give Dereo the good news.
  • Meet a mysterious figure in the Narrows of the Gullet
    • A messenger told me that someone important wants to see me. I was told to head into the Narrows, turn right, turn right again, and go left at the bend, looking for signs of svef use. If I meet resistance, I can say Dereo sent for me.
  • Return the cornett to Dereo in the Narrows
    • I acquired a conch instrument carved with symbols of Ondra - this seems like the "cornett" Dereo wants. He's waiting for it in the Narrows, the tunnels that surround the Gullet.
    • Ateira, the mercenary Dereo originally hired, ambushed me on the way back from Takano's.
  • Return to Dereo in the Narrows
    • I found the temple of Ondra and saw an elaborate mosaic of a place called Ukaizo embedded in the wall. This must be what Dereo was looking for. He promised a reward once I find it.
    • In the temple, I found a wall carving with two sockets. Each was the right size and shape to fit the cornett.
  • Find the mosaic Dereo seeks in the Old City
    • Dereo wants me to find a mosaic in the Old City. Now that Gwenfin's gone, I'll have to hope I know it when I see it.

 

End States

  • Dereo was pleased when I told him about the mosaic of Ukaizo. He warned me to keep my findings a secret.
  • Someone critical to this quest has died.
