  • Go to the Underdark Guide Stronghold in Whispering Caverns and defend it against the duergar.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Lieutenant Iivlin
<name>? Captain Nessfettle told me to keep an eye out for you. She's the Guardsman who you helped behind enemy lines in Helm's Hold. My name is Lieutenant Iivlin.

Captain Nessfettle requests your assisstance guarding a Guild excavation of something very old. Dwarven it looks like. We've come under attack by duergar, but the captain's under direct orders to hold the excavation site. We need reliable warriors to help us out.

I'm told you've worked in our temporary positions before. Are you interested in doing it again?

Reporting to Captain Nessfettle[edit | edit source]

Captain Nessfettle
Glad to have you here, <name>.
Reporting for duty, Captain.
Captain Nessfettle
Lieutenant Iivlin did her job well. Welcome to our stronghold, Lieutenant. Yes, I'm granting you temporary rank again, since anyone who isn't in the Guard or the Guides isn't supposed to even be here.

Any questions before I brief you on the situation?

1. What's going on here?

2. You're a captain now? 3. I'm ready for the briefing.

Captain Nessfettle (if option 1 is chosen)
Did Lieutenant Iivlin not explain that to you? After my squad and I finished our duty in Helm's Hold, we were assigned to provide protection for a particular group of Underdark Guides as they excavated this area.

We've been harried off and on by the duergar, and I suspected that they'd been preparing for a larger attack, so you've arrived just in time. The generals won't tell me why these Guides' dig is so important both to us and the duergar, which makes me think that it's extremely important. I'm not happy about being kept in the dark, but if this excavation is important to Neverwinter, then it's my duty to make sure it stays safe.

Captain Nessfettle (if option 2 is chosen)
Yes, after my squad and I finished our duties in Helm's Hold the generals decided to give me a promotion. I was one of the few squad leaders willing to risk going behind enemy lines, and we did manage to get a lot done, so it's not entirely surprising. I'm just glad because as a captain I can do a lot more to help Neverwinter than I could as a lieutenant.

But don't think I've forgotten your help that day in Helm's Hold. Not sure if we would have all made it back if you hadn't come along.

Captain Nessfettle (when option 3 is chosen)
All right then, listen up. Duergar are about to attack this stronghold in force, and we need to hold the line. There are multiple ways in, and I need you to move around and cover wherever the duergar are attacking at that moment. I'll make an announcement when they attack a particular gate. Any questions? Or are you prepared?
I'm ready.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Captain Nessfettle
Once again you've proven your abilities in battle, Lieutenant. Without your help here, I doubt we would have been able to hold that attack off. I just hope that whatever the Guides are doing here bears the fruit that my superiors hope it will.
