Detailed Walkthrough[ | ]

  1. Talk to Gaelius
  2. Talk to Senna
    • He wants the player to prevent Ordu from coming to Maadoran and will give you Senna's Letter
  3. Travel to Harran's Pass
    • You will be stopped there by a guard
      • "What business is that of yours?"
        • Fight (you start combat against the whole camp)
        • Wait! (conversation continues)
      • Impersonate:[4], "The Commercium has business interests in the area."
        • Persuasion+Streetwise=[8], "Look, I'm just an employee."
        • (hidden check) Streetwise+Trading=[6], "I'm stating the obvious." (you pay 5000 imperials to go through the pass)
        • Failure - you are forced to stay in the camp
      • Lore+Streetwise=[6], "I'm a loremaster." - they tell you to stay in the camp
      • Streetwise:[3]+Body count:[5], "A trader didn't make it back when he was supposed to. I was hired to find him and bring him back, if he's still alive."
        • Trading+Streetwise=[6], "This trader had a lot of money with him – revenues from several trading outposts."
          • Persuasion:[4], "If I’m stuck here, I’ll get nothing."
        • Failure - you are forced to stay in the camp
      • If you fail any of the primary checks you start combat against the whole camp
  4. Wait till dark
    • Sneak:[4] Get closer
    • Approach them. Slowly.
      • Streetwise:[3], "The Ordu are coming."
      • Trading:[3], "I need to get through the pass right now. I can't waste any more time, sitting here. Name your price."
        • Streetwise:[3], "Tell him that some idiot got drunk and fell off the cliff."
          • Pay him 1000 imperials
    • Wait till morning
  5. Wait till morning
    • You are being interrogated by Bass
      • Persuasion:[3] "I told you..." (if you tried to bribe the guards earlier)
      • If you claimed to be a merchant
        1. Persuasion:[3], Persuasion:[2]+Streetwise:[2]=[5] or Streetwise:[3]+Charisma:[7]
        2. Merchant Background or Streetwise:[3]
      • If you claimed to be a loremaster
        1. Streetwise:[2], "In a week this pass will be swarmed with loremasters trying to get through and the ruins will be picked clean."
        2. Bass shows you a Grooved Sphere.
          • Persuasion:[3]+Lore:[3], "It's too small to be identified, but judging by the metal and the workmanship, it's definitely an artefact."
          • Streetwise:[3]+Lore:[3], "It's a potent charm made from the star metal."
          • If you have a Grooved Sphere in your inventory, the Lore check is reduced by 1
      • If you claimed to be a mercenary
        • "Kemnebi hired me." (if you met him in Maadoran)
          • Streetwise:[3], "Same reason he does anything – money."
            • "Alright. 70/30." (wrong answer)
            • "70/30? Forget about it. Take 50 points and thank Kemnebi when you see him for his generousity." (correct answer)
        • "I'm working for the Commercium."
        • "Marcus Valla." (if you met him in Maadoran)
        • "Go fuck yourself."
          • If you are a Mercenary Background, they will let you go. Otherwise you are killed
  6. Travel to Ordu camp
    • Talk to Thorgul, the khan of the Ordu
      • Calm him down
        1. He will explain that he is opposed by Belgutai
        2. You may ask him about Bolad and the shaman who took him. With Lore:[4] or Intelligence:[7]+Lore:[2], you may figure out that the shaman, Adad, was actually Abu Hassan Ibn Hadad
      • Provoke him (if you want to side with Senna)
        • Persuasion:[4], "Did you really think that you'd come to Maadoran as Gaelius' equal?"
        • Streetwise:[4], "You have only yourself to blame, Thorgul."
  7. Deal with Belgutai
    • You can challenge and kill him. This will allow Ordu to move out
    • Ask him why he doesn't want to come to Maadoran
      • Streetwise:[3], "Being free isn't much good to you if you're dead, and comes winter, you will be."
        • Persuasion:[4], "The Ordu way sounds surprisingly like every other way these days."
        • Lore:[4], "Bolad wasn't afraid to leave the plains and go to Maadoran alone." (if you learned about Bolad)
      • "Why indeed? Stay on the plains then." (if you want to side with Senna)
        1. Persuasion:[3]+Charisma:[7], "If there are people who will give the Ordu food and steel to come to Maadoran..."
        2. Persuasion:[4]+Streetwise:[4], "That's where it gets a bit complicated, Belgutai."
        3. If you convince him, he will kill Thorgul and together you will fight four Bondsmen
  8. Talk to Thorgul
    • Wait till the Ordu take the pass
    • Offer to return to the pass to help Ordu
  9. Return to Harran's Pass
    • Talk to Bass
      • If you sabotaged the Ordu, you can show Bass Senna's Letter and he will let you go
      • If you helped Ordu, you will fight Bass, Archer, Auxiliary and a Legionary
    • If you decided to wait, Ordu will take the camp in the meantime and you will be able to loot Grooved Sphere from Bass' corpse
      • Thorgul will tell you that the Imperial Guards army led by Carbo will be here in few hours
        • If Belgutai is alive, you can ask him to attack the enemy and buy enough time for rest of Ordu to escape
        • You can alternatively go and talk to Carbo and convince him to let Ordu go
          1. Streetwise:[4]
          2. Persuasion:[4] or if you failed, Streetwise:[5]
          3. Intelligence:[7]+Persuasion:[5]
        • If you fail to convince Carbo and Belgutai is dead, the only thing you can do is to return to Maadoran empty-handed
