Storyline[edit]

Aid Brink[edit]

Syl Syl
It's no wonder Master Alric sent for my help, the Ember mines are overrun with these creatures. His letter was urgent, but I had no idea how dire things had become.

I am Syl, and that was my companion, Brink. We've only just arrived in Torchlight, and it looks like we're going to need some help. You look capable, and I can pay you well. Please, catch up to Brink before he gets himself killed.

  • Description - Syl will pay you to find and protect her companion Brink. You should be able to find him in the Ember mine.
  • Rewards - GP: 0, XP: 0, Fame: 0
Syl Syl
Brink, no! What has happened!

Alas, my friend...

A Cure for Corruption[edit]

Syl Syl
I'm a bit overwhelmed friend. Brink is dead, my master is lost, and I feel responsible for your corruption as well. Somehow the blighted Ember is fusing with your flesh, changing it - but at least the progress is slow.

I have some knowledge of the crypts below the mine. The Overseer experimented with methods of purifying Ember, we may be able to use his knowledge to purge the corruption from you now.

Find the Overseers Library, his notes should be there.

  • Description - Find the Overseer's Library, Syl believes it may contain information that can cure the Ember Blight that infects your body.
  • Rewards - GP: 0, XP: 330, Fame: 165
Syl Syl
You've released the Overseer from his madness, now we can investigate his library.

Estherian Remnants[edit]

Follow Syl[edit]

Syl Syl
Ah, here are his notes...

He mentions searching for an Ember Forge in a Dwarven fortress much deeper in this mountain. He believed it would cleanse the corruption from his awakened ancestors.

I will return here another time to learn more, but this Ember Forge sounds promising. Come, let's go further down, we may not have much time.

  • Description - You need to find the Ember Forge. Follow Syl down the stairs.
  • Rewards - GP: 0, XP: 440, Fame: 165
Syl Syl
These ruins, I've read of them! This is Esteria, their discoveries are the foundation of my art. I wish Brink could see this.

Collect the destination glyphs[edit]

Syl Syl
I have reactivated these three rune gates, but it is the fourth that leads deeper. Some threat must have caused the Estherians to disable it, the destination glyphs are missing.

We'll need to find those missing glyphs to continue, search the active gates while I study this chamber. Hurry, there are many obsticales between us and the Ember Forge below.

  • Description - Retrieve the three destination glyphs, one from each rune gate. With the glyphs, Syl will be able to open the final rune gate.
  • Rewards - GP: 0, XP: 600, Fame: 225

Vasman[edit]

The Gleaming Ember[edit]

Vasman Vasman
These monster attacks are disrupting my work!

I am Vasman, a scholar of Ember. I traveled to Torchlight to study the vast supply of Ember below, but these creatures make it impossible to obstain the samples I need.

Perhaps you have more courage than these miners. If you brave the tunnels and bring me a sample of Gleaming Ember, I will reward you well. It should not be difficult, look for the Ember on the first floor of the mine.

  • Description - Vasman has asked you to find a piece of Gleaming Ember in the mines.
  • Rewards - GP: 80, XP: 2400, Fame: 360, Item: Adept Chaos Gem
  • Quest Item Needed - Gleaming Ember
Vasman Vasman
Aha, I see you've found the Gleaming Ember! I hope it wasn't too much trouble. Here is your reward.

This is a fine, clear piece, but still there is something odd about it. All of the Ember from Torchlight seems to have a special quality... Well, I'll soon understand it better.

Ember of Another Color[edit]

Vasman Vasman
Ember is the essence of magic, and it assumes aspects of its environment. That is why Ember from different locations can appear and behave completely differently.

I've heard of a vast necropolis buried below the mines. Deathlace Ember can sometimes be found in such places. Studying such a rare type of Ember is a long held dream of mine. You'll bring me any you find won't you?

  • Description - Vasman has asked you to find a piece of Deathlace Ember in the necropolis.
  • Rewards - GP: 88, XP: 3000, Fame: 450, Item: A mysterious map scroll
  • Quest Item Needed - Deathlace Ember
Vasman Vasman
You've found it! This is just grand!

There's something odd about it though... something a bit dark. Perhaps it's just the nature of Deathlace Ember, but I can feel a thread of living spirit within this piece.

Thank you for finding it, here is your reward as promised.

The Shimmering Deep[edit]

Vasman Vasman
Have you ever seen an Ember vein running through water? I've read that it can result in Shimmering Ember, but I've never actually seen such a thing. You'll keep an eye out for it won't you? I'll continue my research in your absense.
  • Description - Vasman has asked you to find a piece of Shimmering Ember in an area filled with water.
  • Rewards - GP: 105, XP: 4400, Fame: 660, Item:

Battle Varkseer[edit]

Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
I am the great bard Trill, perhaps you've heard of me? No?

That's the problem really; despite my astonishing talent, word of my ascendancy has not yet spread among the masses. My ability is beyond question, but perhaps I have not yet found a tale truly worth telling.

Perhaps your heroic deeds will inspire me. A beast known as Varkaseer has been emerging at night to prowl about Torchlight, he is said to be a batlike creature with great power. His lair is said to be on the third floor of the mine, slay him and I will immortalize your battle in verse!

  • Description - Trill has asked you to slay Varkaseer on the third floor of the mines.
  • Rewards - GP: 50, XP: 300, Fame: 450, Item: Braced Leather Armor
Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
You've slain that horrible bat creature, Varkaseer! I could see it in your eyes as soon as you approached. I can imagine the battle now; it will make a fine ballad! Well, the beginning one at least.

I think this collaboration may be a boon to us both.

A Quest for Glory[edit]

Erekguzun the Loathsome[edit]

Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
When I was built, my creator and I would often see bards entertaining people on street corners, it's what inspired me to greatness! Of course he doesn't see it that way, not yet.

I recall a tale of a mighty fiend, Erekguzun the Loathsome, who slew countless warriors before disappearing into the wild. I believe it's here, just 5 floors below Torchlight! Isn't it thrilling? Cut the beast down and I shall make heroes of us both!.

  • Description - Trill wants you to slay Erekguzun the Loathsome on floor 5 so that he can compose a song about the battle.
  • Rewards - GP: 48, XP: 1250, Fame: 262, Item: Lucky Copper Ring
Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
The stage is a lonely place, my friend, it holds more terror than a thousand fiends.

Luckily, you have me to face those dangers, and you need only brave the caverns below. Have you slain Wraithchewer the Ghastly already? Why, I've barely had time to put my thoughts in order! Tell me everything.

Wraithchewer the Ghastly[edit]

Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
I've had an inspiration! It isn't enough to tell the tale of one battle, I must weave a tale of countless victories!

Leave the hard work of storytelling to me, all you need to is slay the monsters! For a start, test your strength against Wraithchewer the Ghastly in his floor 5 lair.

  • Description - Trill wants you to slay Wraithchewer the Ghastly on floor 5 so that he can compose a song about the battle.

Kelekubal[edit]

Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
This shall be my greatest ballad! It's true that none of my songs have met with their deserved acclaim so far, but this one shall be different.

Kelekubal has been terrorizing Torchlight since the fist miners arrived, slinking up from its lair 6 floors below the town. They will rejoice to hear of its defeat, and it should give them a new appreciation for my talent.

  • Description - Trill wants you to slay Kelekubal on floor 6 so that he can compose a song about the battle.
  • Rewards - GP: 54, XP: 2004, Fame: 264, Item: Bloody Skull Splitter
Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
You've earned a new title my friend, Defeater of Kelekubal! Snappy isn't it? Would you prefer Slaughterer of Kelekubal? Conquerer of Kelekubal?

Ah, there's just no pleasing most people. Here's some gold for you trouble.

Ogruin the Assassin[edit]

Trill-Bot 4000 Trill-Bot 4000
Even these dull miners will be able to appreciate this tale!

Ogruin the Assassin lurks 7 floors below Torchlight, meet him in battle and I will weave an epic tale of your victory! Or your defeat, really I think either shall work wonderfully!

  • Description - Trill wants you to slay Ogruin the Assassin on floor 7 so that he can compose a song about the battle.

Hatch[edit]

Down the Hatch[edit]

Hatch Hatch
Hey there stranger, welcome to Torchlight. I'm Hatch, richest man in town. Well, that's my plan anyhow.

I haven't worked out all the details yet, but the key is this here wand. It opens a portal to one particular spot, and I'm sure it must be full of treasure. Problem is, it's also full of monsters, so I can't have a look for myself.

If you can handle the monsters and bring me the best treasure you find in there, you can keep any gold and weapons for yourself. Be careful though, I don't think any other portals will work in there. What do you say?

  • Description - Hatch has opened a portal in town, he wants you to go through and retrieve a treasure from the other side.

A book, is that the best artifact you found in there? Hmm... this is interesting, this sketch looks like my wand. I think they work together somehow. Yes, I see, I can use this book to open portals to all sorts of places. Fortune here we come!

Through the Portal[edit]

Truesilver Compass[edit]

Hatch Hatch
I wish I could fight like you partner, I could keep all these profits for myself! Well, those monsters would tear me to pieces so it's no good dreaming.

Let's get some more treasure! The tome says a forgotten piece of the mountain holds a lost Truesilver Compass, I'll open the portal and you can grab the loot.

Seal of the Overseer[edit]

Hatch Hatch
This one looks promising! There's a Seal of the Overseer in some forgotten nook below us, I bet I can sell one of those for a king's ransom! Well, part of one anyhow.

Flame Shard[edit]

Hatch Hatch
Looking at that this book, I don't know how the mountain even holds together. It seems to be completely filled with disconnected labyrinths and caverns. Well, more treasure for us I suppose.

For example, there's a Flame Shard in a chamber completely cut off from the rest of the tunnels. I'll open a portal, and if you can find it, I'll share the wealth.
