|The Nymph's Gown|
You found a book that seems to be Namus's diary. You should take it to him. After dark, steal the feathered gown in Nymph's Pond as Namus asked you. You've been spotted by the gown's owner! Quickly, run away and meet Namus. You can give the gown to Namus, or take it to Asteros, telling him everything that has happened. What will you do? Get your reward from Asteros. Get your reward from Namus. After reading Namus' diary, you find out that he's deeply in love with a nymph. He seems to believe the nymph will marry him if he steals her feathered gown. Go to the nymph's pond after dark and steal the gown.
After reading Namus' diary, you discovered that he's madly in love with a nymph he found one evening.
Namus asked you to steal the nymph's gown and bring it to him. He believed that owning the gown would cause her to fall in love with him.
Full quest's text: Show/Hide
(It's a thick book, with the word "Namus" inscribed on the back cover.)
(Most of the pages are worn and faded, but on the last few are descriptions of a beautiful nymph bathing in a pond.)
(This may be Namus' diary. He probably considers it valuable.
Oh, it's you again, Player. What is it this time?
Don't tell me you came here just to chat. I'm a busy man, and I'm sure you have better things to do than engage in idle conversation.
Is that my diary? Please, give it back to me!
I thought this was gone for good. I've had it for so long... I panicked when I realized I'd lost it.
Now... I have to ask you....
Tell me, Player--and please be honest--did you read any of the entries?
Ah. You've uncovered my secret then.
I used to hear folktales of beautiful nymphs bathing in pools. I always assumed they were just fantasies, created to take our minds off the Balaur, or those cursed Asmodians.
Imagine my surprise when I was out late one evening and saw one myself!
She was beautiful--a woman so perfect I couldn't take my eyes off her! She stole my heart without saying a word.
I learned everything about them, about her. The stories say that whoever possesses the gown of a nymph can lay eternal claim to the nymph's heart.
But am I worthy of such an honor? I am just a simple woodcutter, not a fantasy hero. I could never complete such a task.
I do. You... you could get the gown for me? This is a kindness I'll not soon forget!
She only appears only at night and is in some kind of trance when she bathes.
But be careful you aren't seen, Player. I saw a Worg attack her only two days ago and she ripped the beast apart in seconds!
You didn't? Are you sure? Because it looks like someone has left marks on the pages....
It's all right--I would have looked myself. My foolish dreams must have been worth a laugh or two.
It sounds ridiculous, I know, but I've fallen in love with a nymph and have no idea what to do about it.
Well, I've always heard stories of beautiful nymphs bathing in pools. Imagine my surprise when I was out late one evening, and saw one with my own eyes!
She was beautiful, a woman so perfect I couldn't take my eyes off her! She stole my heart without saying a word.
I learned everything about them, about her. The stories say that whoever possesses the gown of a nymph can lay eternal claim to the nymph's heart. But I could never do that, I'm no hero.
Oh yes, I do. Player, I'm a sad, lonely man. If you would do this for me, my life would change forever.
You'll find the Nymph's Pond down to the left as you travel along the forest path. I have seen her robes folded neatly on a nearby rock. All you need to do is take them and bring them to me.
Oh, and make sure you aren't seen. Nymphs are known for their strength and I'm sure this one is no different.
Soon the gown, and her heart, will be mine.
Oh, it's you! How long have you been here? Ah, it doesn't matter....
Have you brought me the gown? Is that what you're carrying? Please give it to me!
Ah, please give me a moment to collect my thoughts.
A good friend of mine just passed by and she was absolutely furious. Something about a thief...
It's mine! Finally--it's mine!
Thank you so much, Player! All my dreams have come true.
All I need to do now is bring the nymph her gown tonight, and we'll be married before sunrise!
Oh dear... Namus really asked you to do that? I heard he was lonely, but that doesn't excuse his actions. It does explain my friend's temper though. She was bathing in the Daminu Forest pool and had her clothes stolen.
Of course, she's not a nymph, but in fact a powerful Daeva--if Namus is planning on proposing to her tonight, I hope he's a fast runner....
At any rate, you did the right thing by coming to me, Player. Here's your reward.
Right, I better brush off my best outfit--I want to look my best for the big night!
My dreams have come true, Player, and all because of you. Please, take this reward as a token of my gratitude.
