Dragons of Norrath Cultural Human Quests

This is the quest for humans to acquire the books necessary to make the cultural armor that is available with the Dragons of Norrath expansion. For more information on the general details, see the Dragons of Norrath Cultural Armor Quest Overview.

These quests are available for humans from either Qeynos or Freeport. It is unknown at this point whether being good or evil matters for which city you use. You shouldn't have to go to just your starting city.

Qeynos - Freeport

Qeynos

You start in North Qeynos, with Tar Cordell at 240, 394, opposite Crow's Inn, on the far side of the pool. The books do not need to be acquired in any particular order, as Tar will give you all of them at once if you ask.

Ancestral Book Quest:

You say, 'Hail, Tar Cordell'

Tar Cordell says 'Hello Tyrelius. What brings you back 'ere? Wanted to be 'round yer own [kind] again?'

You say, 'my own kind?'

Tar Cordell says 'Aye. A lot of us 'ave returned 'ome these past few months. Seems distrust is brewing among them other races. Now, I don't want to be accused of bigotry, some of those other kind are okay--dwarves and elves are pretty reliable--but the rest . . . you can't trust 'em. Like them blasted dark elves always plotting something. And those lizard things . . . don't even get me started with those. Folks don't feel safe out there anymore so they're coming back to the cities for protection. Why do you think I came back to 'ere! To be 'round more 'umans, folks I can [trust]!'

You say, 'what trust?'

Tar Cordell says 'Aye, you know what I mean. We need to stick together, form a unified front and let our enemies know we mean business. In fact, right now I'm making armor for the city militia. Hmm, you look like you'd be good in a fight. Perhaps you'd be interested in these armor designs. I can share my pattern [book] or even my armor [patterns] with you provided you don't go blabbing my trade secrets to no dark elves. Can't trust those kind!'

You say, 'what book?'

Tar Cordell says 'Excellent, I can make you a pattern book, but first I'm gonna need some materials. Bring me a fire beetle carapace for the cover, a patch of zombie skin for the pages, a golden bandit tooth for the clasp, and a lion tail to grind down and make a salve which will protect and preserve the finished product. I hear these resources can be found in Western Karana. Once I have these things, I can create the pattern book for ya.'

Quest Summary: Collect and hand in Fire Beetle Carapace, Zombie Skin, Golden Bandit Tooth, and Lion Tail.

Tips: All of these items do drop in West Karana, as Tar indicates (although some may also be available in various other places). The Golden Bandit Tooth drops off bandits. The Lion Tail drops from plains lions. The Fire Beetle Carapace drops from fire beetle (confirmed off regular "fire beetle"). Zombie Skin drops from zombies.

Tar Cordell says 'Aye, well done, my friend! As promised, 'ere is the pattern book. It may take some practice to get a 'ang of these designs, but they should serve you well. Don't forget about us if a war breaks out. I want you up on those city walls with me, aye!'

Receive: Ancestral Human Armor

You say, 'patterns?'

Tar Cordell says 'Aye, I can give you these patterns provided you can help me with some missions for Qeynos. What do ya say? Can you help ol' Tar out? I need someone to spearhead expeditions to [Erud's Crossing], [Kedge Keep], the [Dragon Necropolis] or, if you've got the metal for it, the [valley] on the other side of the lavastorm mountains. I can reward you with some armor patterns for yer efforts. You know the drill. The more the danger, the more the reward! Choose wisely, now.'
