Sir Edmund


The Knights of the Flame are divided over whether to attack the redguard [sic] army at Alcaire Castle. Sir Croix and other knights would potentially destroy the Covenant. They need to be stopped. I've agreed to rally knights to Sir Edmund's cause.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Sir Edmund.
  2. Rally knights to the cause.
  3. Return to Sir Edmund.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When you arrive at Firebrand Keep, Sir Edmund will tell you that Hughes has given the order to attack the Redguard encampment at Alcaire Castle. Some of the knights, lead by Sir Croix, are preparing to march there, while some others, including Sir Edmund, are not agreeing to this. In order to stop the covenant's downfall, Sir Edmund asks you to go in and search for knights who are questioning Sir Croix and get them to join the resistance.

Head on inside the keep courtyard. You'll need to convince four Knights of the Flame, and not all those you talk to will agree. If you do try to persuade a knight that stands firmly with Sir Croix, they will talk about killing you. They will not attack without provocation, but will turn hostile if you strike them. Most seem to be questioning though; it is a minority that will not agree. Anyone you convince will run off to join Sir Edmund.

When you're done, return to Edmund. He believes now there are enough supporters to take the keep. He's ordered them to take up strategic positions, and knows it is his duty to do the right thing even if it means standing against some fellow knights. He will give you some gold, and you can start the next quest, Retaking Firebrand Keep, by continuing the conversation.
