Dialogue[edit | edit source]

After entering the vaults[edit | edit source]

Gate Guard
You're the one Sergeant Knox sent to investigate? Well, I'm glad you're here! We've heard some strange noises from the vault. One of the other guards went to check on it, but he should have been back by now.

I have to guard the entrance, but I'll let you through. Find the source of those noises and look for Quartermaster Otus. He'll know what's happening.

I will. Open the Gate.

After finding the quartermaster[edit | edit source]

Quartermaster Otus
The Nashers snuck in to the vaults during Valindra's attack on the city. They're here to steal the Crown of Neverwinter!

They almost got to it, but then they angered the dead resting in the lower vaults. They're fighting each other down there right now!

I sealed them in behind the hidden entrance to the lower vaults. There's a secret switch in the bookcase on the back wall. Stop the Nasher's before they get the crown!

Stay here. I'll stop them.

Completion[edit | edit source]

Sergeant Knox
The Nashers were bold to raid the vault so soon after Valindra's attack! Thanks for your help in defending the vault, <name>.

Unfortunately, the Nashers got away with the Crown of Neverwinter. The Crown is a powerful symbol of rightful rule in this city. It must be found before the Nashers can use it to start a rebellion.
