Ancient Stones, Ancient Words
Eminaire, a scholar studying dialects of the Ayleidoon language, asked me to travel west to the coast to look for fragments of a tablet that she believes may further her research. [if taken from Eminaire]
I found an Ayleid runestone fragment that seems to be part of a larger tablet. [if a fragment is found first]

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Search for fragments around the Ayleid ruins south of Gil-Var-Delle.
  2. Take the fragments to Eminaire at an Ayleid ruin northeast of Falinesti Winter Site and southwest of Burroot Kwama Mine.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

While roaming the westernmost coast of Grahtwood, you may stumble upon a Runestone Fragment on the sands or in the shallow waters:

<A fragment of what appears to be Ayleid origin has washed up on shore, likely debris from the sunken ruins off the coast.>
<Look closer.>
<The fragment is etched with runic symbols you cannot decipher. It appears to be part of a larger tablet.>
If I can find the other pieces, this tablet would be of value to a proper scholar.'

You may also stumble upon an intrigued scholar who has set up camp at an Ayleid ruin west of Elden Root; if you talk to her, she tells you of a fisherman who has found a similar fragment. Should you desire to help her, she directs you to the same coastal area.

Regardless of how your curiosity brought you there, you are compelled to find similar fragments on this beach. These fragments are scattered about the smaller islands and ruins around a larger island; be careful, however, as many crocodiles have made the beach their home, and may attack you unprovoked.

Once you have collected the fragments, go to (or return to) Eminaire, who will be overjoyed upon your arrival.

"Is that? Yes! I can tell by the runes. The slight alterations in the design and structure is unique to the Valenwood Ayleids. I would be greatly interested in reassembling and studying this tablet if you are willing to part with it."
I thought someone might be able to make use of it. It's yours.
"How exciting! We still have much to learn about the Ayleids that settled here. I am most glad you sought me out with this."

She will give you Abaede Pauldrons and a small amount of gold as a reward.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
