Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I should speak with Zeira and see what she plans to do.

Zeira sent the others ahead to see what they could learn. Walks-Softly is waiting for me nearby—I should speak with him first. I can find him at the Abah's Landing harbor.
Objective: Meet Walks-Softly at the Harbor
Walks-Softly thinks the captain of the Dreamsnake may be a candidate for Cosh's blackmail. To confirm this, I should spy on her meeting in Abah's Landing or try to steal Captain Evani's log.

I should speak with Quen and see what she turned up. I can find her at the Abah's Landing harbor.
Objective: Meet Quen at the Harbor
Quen suspects a dockyard boss may be a candidate for Cosh's blackmail. To confirm this, I could spy on a meeting he called with "the Imperial client," or search the Imperial's private room at the Serpent and Senche.
