Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Carnius Magius[edit]

Speak to Carnius who is disappointed in the investor's response to Falco's death. He is now planning something even more sinister to convince them that the colony should be abandoned...the slaughter of the Colonists by native Nords. Carnius explains that it won't actually be real native Nords, just some hired killers, lead by a man named Toralf, disguised as Skaal raiders. You are to take the two bags with axes, Bear and Wolf Armor out from under the table in the hall and deliver them to Toralf. He and his gang are to arrive tonight near the Colony, just east of the Iggnir River's mouth.

Meeting Toralf[edit]

Grab all the equipment and head out to find Toralf. Find the mouth of the Iggnir River and follow the southern coast of the island until you find a small, open boat. Wait there until nightfall when Toralf and his five henchmen (Alfbrand, Audmund, Bryngrim, Ormvard, and Valgeir) arrive. Speak to Toralf who will tell you to pass out the Nordic armor and weapon to his men. Talk to each man, give them the equipment and then speak to Toralf again.

Now It Gets Interesting...[edit]

As soon as you are finished, he'll say that Carnius ordered them to attack and kill you...apparently Carnius doesn't need you anymore and wants you out of the way. Depending on your skill, this can be a tough fight, especially with all six of them attacking you at once. If all else fails, run away as best you can to heal up and plan an attack as you can manage.

Return to Carnius[edit]

Return to Carnius to have a brief word about what just happened. He'll be rather surprised to see you and then attack. He's a tough customer who can heal himself and hits very hard, so be careful. After killing him, speak to Constans Atrius, and ask him for advancement. He will raise your rank in the East Empire Company to Factor and put you in charge of operations.

After three days talk to Constans Atrius again and you will be able to start the construction of your estate.


  • If you kill the mercenaries before Toralf reveals that Carnius ordered your death, you will be expelled from the East Empire Company upon returning to Carnius.
