Previous Quest: The Rise of Nazderon 
Next Quest: The Revenge of Nazderon 

The Cult of Nazderon has spread its influence far and wide across the deserts south of the Ruin of Tazoon. After rescuing Zaliket from the grasp of the Cult, you successfully disrupted a ritual spell that the Cult was going to use to bring about the Return of Nazderon.

Quest text[edit]

Zalikhet tells you, Once again, you have my thanks for rescuing me, but also for stopping the ritual. I do not know what we would have done if Nazderon had returned... Now you should return to Kaiyar and speak with Stromba. Let him know that the ritual has been disrupted and the Cult has lost its teeth, for now.

Stromba tells you, Good day, <player>, I have heard of your efforts to combat the Cult of Nazderon from messages sent by Zalikhet. Your efforts, though ultimately a failure, are appreciated and you have my thanks.

What do you mean, a failure? The ritual was stopped!

Stromba tells you, Yes, one ritual was stopped. Unfortunately, it turns out there was a second ritual that was successfully performed while you were stopping the first. A redundant ritual, it would seem. Nazderon has returned, <player>, and we all may be in mortal danger.

What can be done now?

Stromba tells you, Nazderon must be confronted, I fear. There is more, I am sorry to say. Brienaire, once the focus of Nazderon's obsession, has been kidnapped. I can only assume that she was taken to Nazderon himself.

Where is Nazderon now?

Stromba tells you, My sources were not specific, but I think it is safe to assume that you should locate this second ritual site and prevent any further use. If the first ritual was performed near the Temple of Nazderon, then you should probably check the other Temples.

Stromba tells you, Did you find the ritual site, <player>?

Yes, the high priest and his guard are dead!

Stromba tells you, That is the best news I've heard all day.
