Quick Walkthrough[edit]

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

You can start the quest in several ways:

  • Talk to Ritemaster Iachesis in his study in Ceporah Tower to start the quest.
    Who are the Sapiarchs?
    "The Sapiarchs are Summerset's foremost scholars. They are the keepers of the Crystal Tower and the custodians of the College of Sapiarchs. Among their many responsibilities, they have trained every heir who ever sat upon Alinor's throne."
    Do you need me to warn the Sapiarchs?
    "I sent Valsirenn to Lillandril, where the College of Sapiarchs is located, to scout the area and see if the Court of Bedlam has made any moves against them.
    I need you to travel to Alinor to secure the Proxy Queen's permission to enter the College."
    I'll go to Alinor immediately.
  • Talk to Valsirenn just outside of Ceporah Tower, on the road to the wayshrine, to start the quest.
    How can I help?
    "The Ritemaster sent me to warn the Sapiarchs of the danger to the Crystal Tower. I want to get to Lillandril as soon as possible so I can scout the area and look for signs of the Court of Bedlam.
    I need you to go to the Royal Palace in Alinor."
    What do you want me to do at the Royal Palace?
    "I don't have time to curry favor with Proxy Queen Alwinarwe. I need you to talk to the Proxy Queen and secure her permission to enter the College of Sapiarchs. The Ritemaster has already requested an audience, so the Palace will be expecting you."
    I'll leave for Alinor at once.
  • Talk to Valsirenn in Alinor near the wayshrine, to start the quest.
    What kind of help do you need?
    "The Ritemaster sent me to warn the Sapiarchs of the danger to the Crystal Tower. I want to get to Lillandril and scout out the area, make sure the Court of Bedlam isn't around.
    I need you to go to the Royal Palace in Alinor."
    Why do you need me to go to the Royal Palace in Alinor?
    "I don't have time to make polite conversation with the Proxy Queen. I need you to talk to Alwinarwe and secure her permission to enter the College of Sapiarchs. The Ritemaster has already requested an audience, so the Palace should be expecting you."
    I'll head to the Royal Palace at once.

Head to the Royal Palace in Alinor and talk to the Proxy Queen.

The Ritemaster of the Psijic Order sent me to get your permission to enter the College of Sapiarchs.
"The Psijic Order? We have not heard a word from that august body in a star's age, and then word arrives that we should expect a visitor.
Why would we grant access to the Sapiarch's private compound? Speak true if you want our aid in this matter."
The Crystal Tower is in danger. The Ritemaster sent me to warn the Sapiarchs.
"This involves the business that Razum-dar was telling us about? The Queen's cat claimed he had eyes in the Psijic order, but we assumed that was more of his braggadocio.
Very well. We'll send word to Lillandril that you may cross to the College."

Travel to Lillandril.
