Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Brief[edit]

When you talk with Razum-dar, he will ask you to help with his investigation of the town's leaders and any possible connections to the Veiled Heritance.

"You'll be perfect for this. You'll see. Raz has an eye for this sort of thing."
What do you have in mind?
"Her majesty set this one a task—investigate the leadership of the Veiled Heritance. The Veil's trail leads here, to the town of Mathiisen.
Well known for their steel blades, yes? But also, apparently, weaponsmiths for anarchists."
Where do I fit in?
"You contact agent Fistalle on the east side of town. This one pads around her house. Then, we meet to discuss her report.
Too bad Raz is so handsome, yes? He would get noticed."

Making Contact[edit]

An unexpected development

Fistalle's house is across the bridge and to the right. When you enter her house, however, you find Fistalle dead on the floor. When you search her body for clues, you will find Fistalle's Note. However, when you read it, it sounds like an odd story that makes little sense. Take the note and go and find Raz. Once you exit the building, you will witness the tail end of a conversation between the Forgemaster and the Canonreeve.

Malanie: "No more delays! Ready the cargo, today. I'm just waiting for the order to go though."
Condalin: "Fine! Fine. Ware, though. My men tell me of outsiders in town. Keep an eye out."
Razum-dar in Mathiisen

Razum-dar will have moved to behind the barracks to the northeast of Fistalle's house. When you speak with him, he will first ask how Fistelle is.

"And how is Fistalle, my friend? Raz loves her laugh. What did she learn?"
I'm sorry Raz. Fistalle is dead.
"Dead? Darm Moon and dull claws. Damn these fanatics."
I found this note on her body. I don't understand what it means.
"Let Raz see that.
Even in death, she laughs at this one. Clever girl. It is a code, telling us who she suspected."
What do you make of it?
"She mentions a rat with a blade. Condalin is the forgemaster here, controls the smithy on the far end of town.
Go, see what you can find. And be careful. Meet Razum-dar around the other side of the forge when you are done."

The Rat with the Blade[edit]

Condalin's house is next door to Fistalle's. You will need to enter the forge area to search for any incriminating documents. The closest entrance to the forge is east of Fistalle's House and next to the docks. Once inside, the Armament Inventory can be found on some crates on the wooden path that leads down to the dock area. If you read them, you will find it details an inventory of weapons meant for the Veiled Heritance, with the explicit approval of Condalin and Canonreeve Malanie. Bring this evidence back to Razum-dar, who is surprised that the Canonreeve is implicated.

"What did you find?"
I found this inventory. Condalin and the Canonreeve were arguing about this earlier.
"Interesting. Raz knows Mathiisen's Canonreeve. Malanie. Would not have suspected her. If she's donned the Veil, she's probably running the show here.
Explains something, too."
What do you mean?
"A guard now stands before the door. Seems an odd place for a guard, yes? Want you to investigate. This one has another lead to run down."
I'll get into the house and meet you when I have something.
"We're close, my friend. We will act soon. Trust Razum-dar."
Why did you say you were surprised the Canonreeve wears the Veil?
"Just thought better of her. This one knows she and the Queen used to correspond regularly. To think she's fallen in with the Heritance.
Shows even good people can do stupid things."

The Rat with the Veil[edit]

Search Malanie's House

Canonreeve Malanie's house can be found in the northwestern corner of the town. Enter the house and search the large dresser in the corner. Inside you'll find a Heritance Officer's Uniform. Exit the house and you'll find Razum-dar standing over the body of a dead guard.

"Our friend here was too noisy. Had to have some fun with him."
"Our friend here was too noisy. Had to have some fun with him. What did the Canonreeve's home yield?"
An officer's uniform. Looks like you were right.
"It's true, then. Malanie leads the Heritance here. This town is corrupt, down to the roots.
Damn it! The Queen will not be pleased."
What do we do?
"When the roots are fouled, there's only one thing left to do—rip them out of the ground."
Where do we start?
"The time to stay in the shadows is past. Now we step into the light."

You will receive some gold as payment.


Create a distraction
  • This quest originally involved gathering kindlepitch from the warehouse next to Razum-dar and using it to set fire to a crate of linens outside Malanie's house in order to distract the guard, whom Raz would later kill. This step has since been removed.
  • While the objective after obtaining the note mentions meeting with Razum-dar behind Fistalle's house, he will actually be found behind the barracks.
  • Condalin and Malanie don't exist in town before starting the quest or reaching the related objective.
  • Despite Razum-dar stating a guard is now stationed outside Malanie's house, that is not the case when going there as part of the objective to get inside.

  • 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.
