You say, 'hail Markus Jaevins'
Markus Jaevins says 'Greetings, young one! It is always good to see a new face here in the Palace of Erudin, the perfect city-state, free from [crime].
You say, 'what crime?'
Markus Jaevins says 'Oh, yes. We here in Erudin have no crime. Actually, it is a very low crime rate. Most of those crimes are committed by the defective brains of [heretics] or inferior, non-Erudite races.
You say, 'what heretics?'
Markus Jaevins says 'The heretics are our sworn enemies. Their ancient origins are our own, however, they are the mad Erudites who chose the dark side of magic called necromancy. We, the magicians, caught one snooping in the palace just last week. He is now our [prisoner].
You say, 'what prisoner?'
Markus Jaevins says 'The infidel was memorizing our spells to take to the rest of the heretic scum. He will finally be [purged] today. Could you please go to the cells here in the palace and ask Jail Master Lius to give you the heretic's remains?
Go into the Basement of the Erudin City office to find Warden Lius at 556.59, 856.30, -30.25
Warden Lius says 'I am afraid the heretic prisoner has escaped. There was a skirmish on the palace grounds so I went to assist. When I returned to my post he was gone! I don't know how... he was locked away in the first cell, across from that no-good, thieving gnome, and it is impossible to break the lock with or without magic. We will find him soon. Tell Guildmaster Markus he has escaped.

You say, 'hail Shondo Billin'
Shondo Billin says 'Oh, Brell!! Help me get out of here. I did nothing wrong!! I did not know you could not take that [tonic] out of the city.
You say, 'what Eruds Tonic?'
Shondo Billin says 'Oh, why did I have to try and help that Erudite in Qeynos? He was sick and vomiting and needed something called Erud's Tonic!! Now just because I wanted to help, I am going to be vomiting up my insides!! Oh, Brell!!! GET ME OUT OF HERE!!
You say, 'where is the heretic?'
Shondo Billin says 'Why are you asking me about the heretic?! I am going to die! DO YOU HEAR ME?!! Oh, I need a drink. Please... honor a dying man's last request, a bottle of Vasty Deep Ale. If you get me that, I will tell you what I know of the heretic.
