Cultists have attacked the Mnemonic Planisphere in order to steal Sotha Sil's memories, manifested as glowing stars. Amili Lloryn has tasked me to rescue these stars and return them to the Planisphere's sky.
The Astronomer
Help Amili guide the errant stars back to their constellations

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Amili Lloryn outside the Planisphere.
  2. Follow Amili into the Planisphere.
  3. Collect the stars and return them to the Astronomer.
  4. Restore the three primary stars.
  5. Watch the stolen memory from the past and help Amili decide what to do next.
  6. Talk to the Astronomer to complete the quest and receive your reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Amili can be heard calling out for help outside the Planisphere, talk to her to see what is wrong.

"Aha! I knew that if I called out long enough someone would find me.
Quickly now, come inside. Cultists have knocked the stars from our sky, and we have to put them back before all of Lord Seht's memories are taken for good!"
Stars? Memories?
"Oh, drat. Look, it's easier to explain once we're inside the Mnemonic Planisphere. That's where Lord Seht stores his memories-well, it's just easier to show you first."
And cultists are stealing these memories?
"Yes, exactly. You're a quick learner.
I need someone who can fight off these cultists and help me return the stars to the Planisphere's sky. Please, you have to help us. This task is of the most vital importance!"
I'll do what I can.

walkthrough needs lead up to choice

The Choice[edit]

"Stewardship of my memories carries a high price, Orvas. One that you must pay willingly."

If you convince Amili to give up her memories and become the Astronomer, she will return to the Planisphere for the succession ritual:

Amili Lloryn: "I've decided. I'll become the next Astronomer. I give myself willingly, to serve the Chrononymic Will as it has seen fit."
The Astronomer: "So be it. I'll start the process now. Take care of the Planisphere... and yourself as well, Amili."
Amili Lloryn: "You remembered my... augh!"
The Astronomer: "I can finally rest."

The Astronomer will turn to dust, and Amili Lloryn's nameplate changes to The Astronomer:

The Astronomer: "What was I... oh, a visitor."

After witnessing the succession, you can talk to her to complete the quest:

"The Mnemonic Planisphere welcomes you, traveler. Due to the recent attack, we are not holding memory viewings. You'll have to return at another time. How strange, I feel a sense of gratitude towards you, though I'm not sure why."
I helped put missing stars back into the Planisphere's sky.
"Ah, so you have? You have the gratitude of the Clockwork Apostles."
"Now, if you'll excuse me, I must inspect the memories to see if they were damaged by the attack. You would be surprised how fragile they can be."

She will award you with the The Astronomer's Orbit and some gold,

If you convince Amili to keep her memories, she will return to the Planisphere to tell The Astronomer:

Amili Lloryn: "I'm sorry, Astronomer. I just can't do it. I just can't give up who I am."
Amili Lloryn: "I can better serve Lord Seht as myself. And I'll find someone to take my place, I swear it. Someone willing."
The Astronomer: "So be it. You have made your choice, apostle. And now you will bear the consequence."
The Astronomer: "You will be shunned from our order. Cast out, until the time which you can undo the wrong you have begot upon your people. Until you have brought me my successor."
Amili Lloryn: "I... I'll do it. I'll accept this fate."
The Astronomer: "May Sotha Sil watch over your path, for I can no longer guide you."

Amili will then leave the Planisphere and you can talk to The Astronomer to complete the quest:

"What is it that you want?"'
Will you be alright?
"I have maintained this position for over a millennium. It is my sole purpose, the path given to me by the Divine Metronome. I have no regrets."
"I thank you for your efforts. A reward is common for these situations, yes? Here you are."

He will award you with the The Astronomer's Orbit and some gold,
