The first stop on your quest for the magical staff is Ekla, a small town to the north-east of NostiksManor.
Here, you learn that there is a DarkImp in the UndergroundTunnel blocking the stairs (TT: should this be a teleporter instead?) that lead into the neighboring city, Randen.
Objective: Defeat the DarkImp in the tunnel so their trade route can be accessible again.
SideQuest: Since the tunnel is also infested with many monsters, they ask you to help get rid of them:
- You must first speak to Jen, who lives in the house located in the south-east part of town.
- She will instruct you to find her grandfather Derig in a Grotto north of the city.
- When you visit the Grotto, you will uncover (and fall into) a hole. Derig helps you climb out.
- You return to Ekla, speak to Jen, and are given a coin made from Unadium.
- Return to the Grotto with this coin, step on the metal rune in the west corner and teleport to the ruins beyond.
- In the ruins, you can find the RodOfCancellation which should dispel the portal in the tunnel.
- Once you finish this, Derig will give you a SunStone and Ajathar (in Randen) can join your party.
