You should see if there is any evidence in the dungeon as to where Candúr might have gone when he escaped.

Guard: 'Aye, I was guarding the dungeons when Candúr escaped. Overpowered me, he did. Nearly ripped my shoulder out of its socket when he threw me down.
'I didn't see which way he went, but he was a keen fellow, and strong as an ox. Dark hair, dirty, dark beard.
'I don't want a man like that running loose in Lamedon.'
Candúr brutally attacked a guard ere he fled, likely through one of the gates of Calembel

Objective 2

Townsperson: ' Oh! I imagine if Candúr came through here. He might have murdered us where we sit!
'Nay, I do not believe he came this way. I do not even like to think of it....'
Candúr did not come this way
Gate Guard: 'You are hunting Candúr? Good. He is a murderous man, and must be kept away from people. Killed his own brother, that one.
'He did not come this way. I stand guard, for the soldiers have gone off with Angbor. I would have seen him if he dared to cross this gate.'
Candúr did not come this way
Gate Guard: 'Ah, so you are the brave stranger who wishes to hunt down Candúr! Good luck; he is a violent criminal, from what I understand. He did not pass through this gate, for I have it well guarded, as you see.'
Candúr did not come this way

Objective 3

Townsfolk who may have seen or heard something of Candúr can be found throughought Calembel.

You should speak with townsfolk to see if you can glean any clues to Candúr's whereabouts.

Townsperson: 'Finally, someone hoping to track down the escaped killer. Yes, I saw him, running along the rooftops across from this very spot. He disappeared over the wall to my right.
'I wish I could describe the chill that shook me when I met his eyes. It was as if he dared me to scream with his glaring eyes. It took my voice away.'
Candúr disappeared over the wall west of this very spot....

Objective 4

  • See if anyone saw Candúr just west of Calembel

Candúr crawled over the wall just west of the woman who witnessed his escape.

You should search directly west to see if Candúr left any traces to allow him to be followed.

Townsperson: 'Hey! You there! Help! Someone stole my sword!
'I demand justice! Where is Angbor? He has abandoned us to thieves and robbers. Is no one safe?
'I suspect my neighbour's boy. He claims he saw a wild-looking man running north upstream, but it sounds like a tall tale to me....'
It is likely that Candúr stole a sword and fled north, upstream....

Objective 5

  • Search north upstream for Candúr

Candúr, now armed, likely fled north upstream.
