Objective: Galanoth has asked you to investigate the most recently destroyed human settlement, and look for clues to its destruction.
Objective completed: After finding evidence of a lost race of Ice Elves believed to be long dead, you are left only with more questions. Like, for example, "What's the deal with these Ice Elves?"
Scaled Yes/No: Yes
(3) Frost Goblin
(5) Ursice Savage
Ice Dragon Scale
Galanoth: <Character>, I have to put aside my own quest for revenge to help the people of this land.
Galanoth: As soon as this town is safe, you can get that I'll be back on Akriloth's tail in no time, but for now... we have work to do.
Galanoth: The last human settlement to fall was a village named Frode, so the trail should be freshest there.
Galanoth: Frode was built high upon a glacial cliff, but that didn't save them from the attacks. Now the ruins are swarming with scavengers.
Galanoth: Normally, the frost goblins would have first rights to loot the ruins, but a fierce tribe of armored polar bears have shown up.
Galanoth: This tribe call themselves the Ursice Savages, and they will take a break from driving off the frost goblins if you show up.
Galanoth: Fight your way to the remains of the village and look for any clues that might lead us to the ice dragons who destroyed the village.
Galanoth: Return to me with whatever you find. Watch your back, <Character>.
After you’ve found the shimat:
Galanoth: Interesting. This is a weapon called a shimat... but to find one in this condition is impossible.
Galanoth: The only people who ever used the shimat with any skill were the Ice Elves who once lived here in the northlands.
Galanoth: This shimat has been freshly sharpened. There's not even a spot of tarnish on the steel.
Galanoth: This MUST mean that there are some Ice Elves left up here. They were fierce warriors when their land was threatened...
Galanoth: ...But they were usually peaceful, from what I understand. Why would they join forces with the ice dragons?
Galanoth: You've done well, <Character>. Now we know where to look next... the Ice Elf Ruins.
Galanoth: It looks like we have an entire lost race of people to rediscover.
