Putting the Pieces Together
A quest given out by Axem the Curator.
* As you approach, Axem seems completely unaware of you *
Ok, now if I substitute each symbol by the one thirteen places in front of it, I get... what? Who are.. oh my, forgive me. Greetings! It is good to see you again. I must apologize, I have been so busy trying to figure out the meaning of the symbols on the pottery fragments you brought me. So far, I have not gotten very far, but perhaps if I were able to cross reference these symbols with another source.
Let me think... yes, I think that would do. Have you seen any remnants of old scrolls laying about during your travels? I would reward you, of course, if you would bring them to me. Is it a deal?
* Once again, Axem is so completely engrossed in his work that he fails to notice you *
...sliding the penultimate symbol back to this position, subtracting the number of symbols in a row, leads to... hmm, abolsutely nothing. Again.
* Axem jumps as he realizes you're standing next to him *
I thought you were my ex-wife there for a second. Whew! So, you have returned? With all that I have asked for? Fabulous, I'll get to work on these now. Here is your reward, now please leave me be.
- Obtain - 5 Tattered Remnants of an Ancient Scroll
The remnants can be found on various monsters inside the Stygian Abyss. They drop rather rarely.
