Desdemona's Daring Double Cross

Alignment Mission

You come across a mystical message intended for your eyes only.

You receive a strange message from Desdemona, a Rogue currently in the Rogue Isles.

'Character, I know we haven't seen eye to eye in the past, but now I have an offer of power that I would like you to take. Refuse and I shall take no offense. Accept and this is only the beginning of what we can accomplish.

I have taken a job with Arachnos in excavating some ancient Mu ruins in search of magical power. I have recommended that we hire on some additional help, just in case someone tries to take their prize, if you know what I mean. To that end I would have you guarding the Vault Wards. But before anyone could even hope to get that far, they'd need to deactivate the Scrying Glyphs that the Arachnos mystics have set up to keep tabs on the dig site.

I hope you take this offer, it would be very worth our while if you did.'

Contained at the end of this message are instruction on where the dig site for the ruins are. Unless you are mistaken, and you are never mistaken, Desdemona is asking you to help her double cross Arachnos and take their prize for yourselves.

HERO: Help Desdemona Double Cross Arachnos!

If Desdemona can be trusted then this could be a big break for you. Arachnos, after all, has an entire country backing them financially, and rubbing some salt in their wounds is modus operandi as long as the Arbiters don't get bitten. Nobody will hold it against you if you trounce them for your own gain.

  • Infiltrate the ruins and get Desdemona out

All you have to do is walk into the Arachnos occupied ruins with Desdemona's invitation, block the scrying glyphs, dispell the vault wards and then walk Desdemona and the loot right out the front.

Unnecessary Solicitation

From the sound of it, this offer isn't going to be around forever. If you were in Desdemona's position you wouldn't send a message like that and wait around to be betrayed yourself. If you want a cut of the profit, you'd better get a move on and find those ruins.
