Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Making a Distraction[edit]

Madras Tedas offers you a deal: secure weapons for his group of villagers, and he'll tell you where the missing villagers are and let you join the rescue mission. He sends you to Seron Denelu, the town blacksmith, who has a plan to distract the kinhouse guards so you can pilfer the armory.

Seron gives you a Steel Whistle and tells you to blow it in front of the kinhouse, which will be the signal for the villagers to create a distraction for the kinhouse guards. With the guards occupied, you must enter the kinhouse, grab the armory key on the upper floor, then go to the armory in the basement and unlock as many weapon crates as possible before the guards return.

Stealing the Weapons[edit]

Steal the weapons

After blowing the whistle, a Resistance Member rushes up to make a scene, which immediately draws away the kinhouse guards. You have exactly three minutes to carry out the plan. First, go to the upper floor of the kinhouse and grab the Kinhouse Armory Key from a dresser. Next, go to the armory in the basement, unlock weapon crates, and retrieve the weapons inside them. While there are eight crates that can be unlocked, you only need to take the weapons from four of them before the timer expires in order to advance to the next stage of the quest. If you don't collect four weapons within the time limit, all you need to do is return to Seron Denelu, talk to him, then blow the whistle in front of the kinhouse again to get the naked Resistance Member to cause another scene.

Weapons Delivery[edit]

Return to Seron Denelu and hand him the weapons. Seron explains that as a blacksmith, he can carry the weapons around town without raising suspicion from the guards and discreetly distribute them to the villagers. He tells you to go back to the kinhouse to wait for Madras' next instructions.

At the kinhouse, speak to Varon Davel, who asks for an update on the whereabouts of Giron Sadri and Councilor Ralden. This completes the quest.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
