First Quest - The River Of Fire
Before: Warlic has asked you to investigate what has happened to the river flowing past the mining town of Lymcrest.
After: The insane pyromancer Xan has replaced the water in Lymcrest's river with a scalding lava flow. If you do not find a way to get the water back soon Lymcrest will be doomed!
Starting the Quest
Warlic: Recently the mining town of Lymcrest, to the west and south of here, has been having a lot of trouble with the local elemental population.
Warlic: Something has thrown off the balance between the elementals and has driven them mad.
Warlic: To add to their troubles, the river that runs beside town...the river itself...has been set on fire.
Warlic: I would like you to go investigate this river of fire. See if you can help the miners. I will see is I can find the source of elemental imbalance.
Xan: HAHAHAHHAH! I must say, I'm impressed to see you here. I thought I had finished all you heroes...
Xan: ...when I burned Falconreach to the ground. HAHAHAHHAH! good times... good times
<Character>: I don't know why your doing this to the river Xan, but you need to change it back. You're making the people of Lymcrest suffer!
Xan: Ah hero, that is exactly the reason I have replaced their precious river with lava... to make those small-minded miners suffer.
<Character>: Change it back, XAN... or I'll make you change it back.
Xan: HAHAHAHAH, and what will you do to me little hero?
Xan attacks you and cuts you down to half health.
Xan: That was a reminder of my power. With the Pyronomicon, neither you or that fool Warlic can stop me.
Xan: YOU WILL BE MADE TO SUFFER! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Xan: You're not looking so well.
<Character>: Yeah... that REALLY HURT!
Xan: GOOD! I'd stay and finish you, but I have other things to attend to, so I'll let Bassault finish you off.
Xan: Finally I have the power to punish Warlic for his crimes! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
You defeat Bassault
Xan: Hmmm. More and more impressive, <Character>. Warlic chooses his allies well.
Xan: Not that it matters to me. With my PYRONOMICON by my side I cannot fail.
Xan: You will pay, Warlic... and I won't allow <Character> to get in my way. HAHAHAHA *cackle cackle*
Second Quest - Fetching Fire
Before: In order to turn the river of fire back into water, Warlic needs a sample of the magical fire that is filling the river. It flows from its source deep inside a cave protected by fire.
After: You have secured a sample of the magical flaming water for Warlic. Now maybe he will be able to help the people of Lymcrest change their river back to cool, drinkable water.
Complete The River Of Fire quest.
Warlic: I see, Xan is behind the river of fire. All of the elemental disturbances are most likely his doing as well.
Warlic: You may have already found this out for yourself, but I should warn you if you wish to continue helping me. Xan is a very dangerous foe.
Warlic: He has been after me for years, and if he sees you as my ally, he will also be after you at all costs. His hate for me runs very deep.
Warlic: It all goes back to the time that we both spent at the magic academy in Swordhaven. Xan and I were always competitive...
Warlic: ... but when it came to the affections of Jaania, we were out of control. One day there was an... accident...
Warlic: Xan was engulfed in flames, and the only thing that I could do to save him was to change the normal fire to a healing fire.
Warlic: The flames that surround his body are the only things keeping him alive, but he lives in constant agony.
Warlic: For all his madness and hatred, I am glad that I was able to save him... but poor, beautiful Jaania...
Warlic: Excuse me, I was lost in thought. Back to the threat at hand. I think I can change the river back to its natural water state.
Warlic: But I will need a sample of the flaming water from its source. It flows from a fire cave in the elemental mountains.
Warlic: Bring me a sample of the pure flaming water, so that I may test my theory. We will save Lymcrest together, <Character>!
Third Quest - Everyone Knows It's Windy
Before: Warlic has told you that he needs a sample of the special water, found only in the spring beyond this mountain pass, but the pass must be cleared first.
After: Wow! You really took the wind out of HuffPuff's sails! And Lungs! Well done, hero! Now that the mountains is clear, return to Warlic to get directions to the spring.
Complete Fetching Fire quest.
- Tornado Elemental
- Windwasp Drone
- Wind Defender
- Boss: HuffPuff (Scaled Level) or HuffPuff (Extreme) or HuffPuff (Insane)
Warlic: Xan has actually changed the nature of the water itself. Any normal water poured into the river will set on fire.
Warlic: I might be able to reverse the process. There is a spring of purest elemental water in the mountains.
Warlic: To get the spring you will have to clear the mountain pass. It is normally guarded by wind elementals...
Warlic: But there is a Wind Cyclops guarding the mountain pass now. Any traveler who gets too close gets blown off the mountaintop.
Warlic: If I enchant the bottle before you clear the pass, the magic will wear off before you can get the water sample...
Warlic: ... and the water will lose its purity. A way must be cleared before you can get the sample.
Warlic: If you can defeat the cyclops and clear the pass, return to me and I will enchant a container for the spring water.
Fourth Quest - The Pure Pool
Before: In order to stop the river of fire, Warlic requires a sample of pure elemental water from the Pure Pool. He said that the best sample would come from where the waterfall feeds into the pool.
After: Splashy, the Pure pool's guardian, lies defeated at your feet and you can feel your toes squishing inside your socks. You have gotten the water sample from the purest part of the pure pool. Now Warlic can change the river of fire back to water.
Complete Everyone Knows It's Windy quest.
Warlic: The enchanted bottle is ready for you to get a sample from the purest part of the Pure Pool, the waterfall that feeds the pool...
Warlic: ... but I learned something in Lymcrest that you might find interesting. Many years ago before the village even had a name...
Warlic: ... a baby boy named Xan was born under unusual circumstances. As he grew it became apparent that he possessed some natural skill in magic.
Warlic: The miners were made nervous by his skill in magic, which is common with the magically gifted, we are often misunderstood.
Warlic: In this small mining village there were no other children to play with and yound Xan was hungry for attention...
Warlic: So Xan tried to get attention the only way he knew how, by causing bad things to happen and hurting innocent people.
Warlic: Xan, of course, was too clever to get caught but everyone suspected that the strange fires in the village were his doing.
Warlic: As Xan grew to be a young man he became proud of the villager's fear... which he mistook for respect.
Warlic: Eventually, tragedy struck and Xan's parents were killed in another mysterious fire, the day that Xan left for the Magic Academy in Swordhaven.
Warlic: The fires stopped that day in Lymcrest. I'm not sure if Xan just couldn't control his power or if he was just always dangerously insane...
Warlic: ... but it appears that Xan has returned to punish the miners of Lymcrest who he felt always treated him with less respect then he deserved.
Warlic: We HAVE to stop Xan and change the river back before Lymcrest is "punished" further! We have no time to waste!
Warlic: Now that the pass is clear, head to the Pure Pool and take a sample of the pure elemental water for me, while I prepare the counter-spell.
Fifth Quest - Xan's Volcano Fortress
Before: You and Warlic have set out to captures the Pyronomicon and right from under Xan's flaming nose... but not everything runs according to plan.
After: You have defeated the insane pyromancer, Xan and the powerful tome hands. But was that end of Xan? Could his mastery of fire protect him the lava? Only time will tell.
Complete The Pure Pool quest.
Warlic: I have great news! You did it!
Warlic: The pure elemental water worked. We've started a reaction that will change the river of fire back to water. Lymcrest is safe...
Warlic: ... for a while. Lymcrest is still in danger. It will always be in danger... as long Xan is in possession of the Pyronomicon.
Warlic: We don't have any choice, <player name>. We have to try to sneak into Xan's volcanic fortress and take the Pyronomicon any way we can.
Starting the Quest
Warlic: We must be very careful. Xan has wanted me dead for years and I'm sure that he doesn't like you very much either...
Warlic: ...after everthing that you've done to stop him. So... what's your plan?
<Character>: MY plan?! This "sneak into Xans volcanic fortress and take the Pyronomicon" plan was your idea.
Warlic: Right, but I mean after that..
Warlic: Xan won't just say ' Oh, you want the book that increases my powers a thousand times? Sure, here you go. Have a nice walk back'
Warlic: I mean, how do we get out?
<Character>: How about we fight our way back out?
Warlic: That's really not much better than my plan.
<Character>: Let's just concentrate on getting the Pyronomicon and not getting killed in the process. We'll worry about escaping if we get that far.
Warlic: That's reasonable. Lead the way.
This Quest removes all your friends, and adds Warlic as a friend.
Sixth Quest - The End?
After Xan sunk into the lava during your last encounter, his insane fury and magical instability caused him to bind with the lava inside his fortress. He has become the mindless terror called the Lava Titan Xan! Only a Dragonlord's power can stop him!
