Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Speak to Justiciar Tanorian in Alinor to start the quest.

Is there any work available?
"We've seen a precipitous rise in the sale and exchange of forbidden books. And not just the coarse literature from the mainland. I'm talking about something dangerous - Worm Cult tomes.
Needless to say, we can't have books like that floating about."
So you want to track down the books?
"No, no. A colleague of mine, Esulo, has already seen to that. He just needs some help ensuring the books are safely removed from Summerset.
You'll find him in Golden Gryphon - at the bar, no doubt."
All right. I'll recover the texts.

Travel to The Golden Gryphon in Alinor and talk to Esulo.

Yes. He said you had books for me.
"I do. Books penned by the Worm King himself.
The Divine Prosecution is eager to see these tomes driven out of Summerset, but they move too hastily. Clumsy prohibitions and graceless raids only make these books more valuable to collectors."
So what do you propose we do with them?
"You must lock them away in the Traitor's Vault - a forbidden ruin on our isle of Artaeum.
I would do it myself, but I am woefully unprepared for fights with undead horrors. A Psijic's power lies in quiet study, not flashing steel. You understand."

Esulo gives you three Mannimarco's Forbidden Tomes. Go to Traitor's Vault and find the three Worm King's Chests to store the tomes in.

  1. In the northwest oval chamber on the ground floor. On a table with a stack of books next to it, in the southeast corner of the room.
  2. In the southeast cave near the boss.
  3. In the most eastern room on the ground floor. On a table below the stairs.

When you have completed the quest objectives, return to Justiciar Tanorian and talk to him to complete the quest.

"I do so appreciate when one of my deputies returns with all their limbs still attached. Tell me, were you successful in your investigation?"
Yes, I've disposed of Mannimarco's forbidden tomes.
"Well done. Let's hope those vile things are sealed away for good.
You have the thanks of the Office of Divine Prosecution - and the Psijic Order, I suspect. If Esulo recovers any more of those books, I'll know who to call."

Objective: Talk to Esulo
According to Esulo, sealing these forbidden tomes away in Traitor's Vault will keep them out of the hands of would-be necromancers. I should travel to the ruin and lock Mannimarco's Forbidden Tomes away for good.
