Music: Among Stately Peaks

Time to catch up with another old acquaintance!

Do you remember? I am a historian, and you were so good as to show me the way to the ancient monument.

If you have, I would like nothing more than to hear them with my own ears.

Fortunately, this one is much easier than her last quest.

I never really paid attention in my first playthrough, but it looks like the Scrutinize/Inquire text for the characters starring in the region-specific quest chains gets updated with each stage. That's a cool, easily-missed detail.

Anyway, the solution is to simply chat up this guy.

Music: Battle II

Interestingly enough, Battle II plays at the second text box, then the game fades to black before going back to normal.

Music: Among Stately Peaks

But of course, we have to actually Scrutinize him to get what we seek.

I can't buy plums with a tale.

Anyway, this is short and simple. Let's finish things off.

So, a red-eyed dragon appeared, sowing death and destruction. Hornburg was on the verge of collapse. It was up to the aging King Beowulf to defeat the dragon. He built a castle strong enough to withstand the dragon, then risking all, rode out to meet it.

This is a valuable new clue. If I can find that castle, then...

Noelle has a lead to perhaps finally prove to the world that King Beowulf truly existed.

Everhold, by the way, is the Chapter 4 town of the Highlands, so we'll surely catch up with Noelle there in the future!

For now, though, it's time we head to the beach.
