Orbaz Bloodbane at the Scarlet Tavern in New Avalon has ordered you to kill the Scarlet Courier and retrieve the Scarlet Courier's Belongings and the Scarlet Courier's Message.


While you were out burning churches and murdering vermin, I've been busy formulating a plan.

The Scarlet courier is scheduled to pass by the Scarlet Overlook within the hour. The roads by the overlook are swarming with Crusaders. Use this  [Makeshift Cover] to hide at the overlook and wait for the Scarlet Courier to pass. When he's close enough, strike with all your fury! Cut him down and take his belongings - including his clothes!

The overlook is 200 paces east of here.


You will receive: 85s and 1 Bonus talent


You're going to miss the courier and then I'm going to be forced to kill you. By forced I mean I will take great pleasure in ending your life.



<Orbaz reads the message.>

The armies of Hearthglen and Tirisfal will be marching into a massacre.

<Orbaz smiles.>

Now for the second part of the plan. You're going to deliver this message right into the hands of High General Abbendis. That's what the clothes are for...


Use the  [Makeshift Cover] as soon as you're in a safe spot when the minimap says Scarlet Overlook, laugh at the horrible tree and the ineptitude of the Scarlet Courier.

Scarlet Courier says: Hrm, what a strange tree. I must investigate.
Scarlet Courier says: What's this!? This isn't a tree at all! Guards! Guards!

Kill him and run back to the Tavern.
