Summary[edit | edit source]

The Detective
Good to see you again, Adventurer. I've been doing what I can to make up for working with that noble from Waterdeep.

Do you remember Jundus? He is the man from Thay. The Sheriff and I have been investigating him and his family, and I think I discovered something that would break this mystery wide open.

I have it on good authority that an artifact store in Neverwinter recently acquired a book detailing some inner workings on Thay.

If you could acquire it, I could look up information on Jundus and his family to see if they are part of the Red Wizards or just simple commoners.

Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Go to Sage Bradda's Shop in Protector's Encave
  • Speak to Sage Bradda about the Thayan Book
  • Investigate the Thayan Book
  • Speak to Zulia
  • Tell the Steward about Zulia's Plan

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Sage Bradda, I hear you have a book on Thayan Wizards.
Sage Bradda
Who told you that? This was not supposed to be something that was known by the public.

Yes, I do have the book, but not for long. I'm holding on to it for the moment before passing it along to another party.

You can find the book upstairs. Take whatever you need from it, but please be discreet.

  • I'll have a look at the book and then be on my way.
Thayan Wizard Heritage Book
You flip through the book regarding the heritage of Thayan families and see a description fitting Jundus and his daughter.

You discover that Jundus is married to a Red Wizard named Zulia and that they have one child.

The records indicate that Zulia is a devotee to Szass Tam, a lich who is the current ruler of Thay.

There is a note in the records that Zulia is one of the more fanatical devotees, pledging her life and her family to the service of Szass and Myrkul, the Lord of the Dead.

I know who you are, <name>, and I know all about the guild you're in.

You have read the book and know who I am.

Your guild is current harboring a criminal. My husband has kidnapped my daughter.

I want her back. And you're going to give her to me.

Or else.

  • What do you plan to do with your daughter?
My daughter has been birthed and raised for one purpose - furthering the power of Szass Tam. She has come of age where she will be trained to become a loyal Red Wizard of Szass Tam, and her father cannot stop that.
  • I cannot allow you to sacrifice your own daughter for some lich.
I was concerned that you would say that.

So be it, I have given you and your guild a chance to earn the favor of Szass Tam.

I will have my daughter back, even if it means destroying what once belonged to the Red Wizards of Thay.

Make your peace, <name>. I will not show the same hospitality when we meet again in person.

  • We shall see, Zulia.

Completion[edit | edit source]

The Steward
Hrm... so, Jundus was on the run from his insane Red Wizard wife? I suppose that makes sense.

Jundus has been a fully productive member of this land, it would be a shame to lose him. His magic has helped us make great strides in repairing various parts of the Stronghold.

When Zulia arrives, we will ensure she does not lay a hand on Jundus, or his daughter. Though, I am concerned about Zulia mentioning that this Stronghold once belonged to the Red Wizards of Thay. It would explain our conflict with them.

The next mission will be available when the guild hall reaches rank 17.
