  1. Talk to Herminius Sophus.
  2. Find Aminyas' and Dechery's research.
  3. Return to Herminius Sophus.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Talk to Herminius Sophus to start the quest.

"I don't suppose you'd be willing to help me on another grand adventure?
I won't accompany you on it, of course, but I'll be there in spirit nonetheless!"
What are you talking about?
"I've been unable to research this site properly before moving on, but my travel arrangements are already made.
Do you understand what that means?"
What does that have to do with me?
"My editor gave me a list of other scholars who have gone missing here, presumably to frighten me!
Aminyas and Dechery are their names, and I want you to search for their camps and see if they had research I can ... cite."
I'll see what I can find.

Find the journals of both Aminyas and Dechery.

Return to Herminius Sophus and talk to him to complete the quest.

"I can't believe this could possibly be taking you so long. How hard could it be?"
I found the texts that you wanted.
"You've found the notes! Oh, superb. I'm sure I can cobble these together and keep the high points on the voyage.
I might even make the two of them my co-authors-no, no that's absurd! Here, a pittance for your trouble."
