You say, 'what is brewing?'
Loremaster Borannin says 'Ahh, yes, good to see you again, Runengetum. I wish it were under better circumstances that we meet today. For some time now we have sent teams of our finest rogues to gather intelligence for the Dain. Tanik Greskil is one of our best. He was recently sent into the heart of Kael Drakkel on a very important mission and has not returned. He is now long overdue, and fearing the worst, our wise council has asked me to dispatch a rescue party to determine what has become of him and return him to safety. I have decided to give you this opportunity to build upon the trust you have earned from the council. Will you accept this mission?'
You say, 'I will accept this mission'
Loremaster Borannin says 'The council will be pleased to hear of your acceptance, Runengetum. Scour the regions surrounding the city of the Giants. Discover what happened to Tanik and, if possible, return him to Thurgadin. If you are successful, remember to hand me your woven shawl. We seem to be running low on them, but I must say Mordin has never had so much help in the kitchen. Anyway, I will eagerly await word of your findings. Good luck, and may Brell protect you.'
Tanik Greskil says 'It's far too dangerous for me to stay in one place here. Please seek me out when you're ready to assist me.'
You have been ambushed by Frost Giants!
You stumble over a pile of snow exposing a Coldain!
You say, 'Hail, Tanik Greskil'
Tanik Greskil says 'Outlander! Thank Brell you've found me! I am the last surviving member of my unit. Our mission was somehow compromised, the bloody Kromrif knew just where to find us... I can't imagine how they knew. I was barely able to escape with my life and wandered into a trap here. I am badly hurt and need your help.'
