Conversation with High General Geoffrey & Questlog Update
Player: hail general

High General Geoffrey: Salutations, Player! Player: join High General Geoffrey: Ah a newling. You wish to be part of the Imperial Army, newbie? Player: yes High General Geoffrey: Heh, well, it is not this easy to join us. We cannot just accept anyone, especially not with the war just ending and all the renegades and all... High General Geoffrey: We have just finished our war against the Lightbringers and we most certainly do not wish to accept spies for those that do not accept their new ruler... High General Geoffrey: Our army is split into 6 different ranks: private, soldier, sergeant, commander, royalist and the general... High General Geoffrey: We have received a lot of new applications recently so I was thinking of adding a temporary 7th rank. Something like a scout... High General Geoffrey: It would just be the rank of the newbies until we can trust them. They would have to do some unimportant things, to show their loyalty towards the Empire of Maritsaia and city of Eschen... High General Geoffrey: I know. You will give the 7th rank a trial. We will see how it goes with you and if you prove yourself worthy I will propose it to the emperor myself... High General Geoffrey: So I suppose I hereby unofficially welcome you in the Imperial Army, Player! Let's see... What could you do for me right now... High General Geoffrey: Oh, I know. Go and bake some bread and bring it to the prisoner. We cannot really let that fool die of hunger down in his cell.

High General Geoffrey allowed you to unofficially join the Imperial army. You are testing the new trial rank of a scout. His first request for you is to bake some bread and give it to the prisoner in Eschen.

  • He will tell you to go and bring some Bread to Santin in the cells in the southern part of Eschen (here Map.png).
    • You can buy bread from Padric in his bakery in Eschen (here Map.png). He is located close to Eschen's southern gate.
  • Say 'bread' to Santin.
Conversation with Santin & Questlog Update
Player: hi

Santin: Welcome to my little kingdom, Player. Player: bread Santin: Time for lunch? Player: yes Santin: Wow, bread again...what a time to be alive.

You fed the prisoner for High General Geoffrey.

Conversation with High General Geoffrey & Questlog Update
Player: hail general

High General Geoffrey: Salutations, Player! Player: mission High General Geoffrey: That went fast. Now, how about you bring back the sword I lent to Dave. I gave it to him days ago to understand how a newly sharpened blade should look like. Hopefully it did him any good. His own blade is as blunt as a club.

High General Geoffrey asked you to bring back the sword he lent to the guard Dave.

Mission 2 - General's Broad Sword

Broad Sword.png



  • Dave is located on the second floor of Eschen's south gate (red circle). When you get to him, ask him about the 'sword' or 'mission' and he will tell you that he lost it in a fight during a minotaur raid on a drunken night.
Conversation with Dave, the guard & Questlog Update
Player: hi

Dave, the guard: LONG LIVE THE EMPEROR! Player: sword Dave, the guard: The general wants his sword back?! Damn it! Newling, I need your help... Dave, the guard: I might only be a guard but I am still your superior and I order you to not tell anyone what I give you to do! ... Dave, the guard: I have lost the generals sword yesterday. Minotaurs of Minoras raided our city wall during the night. They weren't with many but I was kind of drunk... Dave, the guard: Oh please, stop judging me with your eyes! What else am I supposed to do all day! Anyways, I accidently grabbed the general's sword instead of mine to fight them off... Dave, the guard: I sliced them up real nice but the last minotaur noticed how sharp the blade was and instead of fighting me he tossed me some dirt into the face... Dave, the guard: By the time I could see again he held the sword in his hand, standing next to the water surrounding the wall... Dave, the guard: I loaded my crossbow and shot the bolt right into his ugly face but with his last breath he tossed the sword into the water where it sunk to the ground... Dave, the guard: There is no way to reach it. The water is way too deep. We must replace it somehow! I know that the towns blacksmith Andre crafted the sword... Dave, the guard: Meet with him and ask him for a replacement. Do whatever it takes to get a duplicate. You do not want to return to the general without a sword in your hands, nor do I want you to!

Dave told you the story of how he lost the General's sword and asked you to create a perfect replacement so General Geoffrey won't notice he lost his sword. He mentioned that the towns blacksmith Andre might be able to help.

  • Head to Andre in Eschen (yellow circle, south of the temple) to get a replacement sword. Ask him about a 'replacement', he will tell you he needs the following items in order to forge a new sword for the general: 7 Pieces of Iron, Some Wood, 2 Copper Bars, and a Bucket.
Conversation with Andre & Questlog Update
Player: hi

Andre: Haa, another customer. Welcome! Player: replacement Andre: So, Dave managed to lose the general's sword. What a fool! And now he's sending the new guy around town to replace his mistake... Andre: Well, he is right though. It might not have been your mistake but the general still expects you to return with a proper sword... Andre: I will help you out since you are new and all but I will not do all the work. You will have to bring me everything I need and you will have to help me in return... Andre: For a regular sword I need 4 or 5 pieces of iron but the general's sword was a broad sword for which I will need atleast 7 pieces of iron... Andre: Furthermore, I need you to bring me some wood for a fire to melt the iron pieces. Other than that I will need 2 copper bars. You can either buy them from other people or you get your hands on some copper ore and melt them yourself at the great forge in Mittenhoff... Andre: Our usual picks are not strong enough to gather ores but I heard the dwarven blacksmith sells advanced picks. Then I can craft a new sword for the general. But in return I have to ask you to bring me a new bucket... Andre: My old one broke recently and is leaking water all over the place whenever I cool melted weapons. Return once you have everything and I will see what I can do to replicate the sword. Oh, and you might want to hurry, the general does not really appreciate waiting.

You talked to the blacksmith Andre about the replacement for the General's sword and he is kind enough to craft you a new one. He asked you to bring him all the materials for the broadsword. He needs 7 pieces of iron, 2 copper bars, some wood as well as a new bucket.

  • Once you have collected all the items, return to Andre to forge the replacement sword.
Conversation with Andre & Questlog Update
Player: hi

Andre: Haa, another customer. Welcome! Player: replacement Andre: Do you have everything with you? Player: yes Andre: Here you go! This is the best I can do to replicate the weapon. And don't you dare mention to the general I helped you with this incase he sees through it!

You brought Andre the materials for a new broadsword and he crafted it for you.

Conversation with High General Geoffrey & Questlog Update
Player: hail general

High General Geoffrey: Salutations, Player! Player: mission High General Geoffrey: What took you so long? Do you have my sword? Player: yes High General Geoffrey: What the...this is even sharper than before. I guess Dave really took my words to heart and learned to treat his weapons better.

You brought the replaced broadsword to the General without him noticing it.

Mission 19 - Peace Agreement

White Parchment.png White Parchment.png White Parchment.png
