Quest Text

"Kaj, the chieftain's son, is in love with Pinja, a young woman with a heritage drawing from many tribes. Unable to show her his true feelings, he invokes an ancient ritual which allows a warrior to capture a bride from a rival tribe...."

Background

Kaj wants you to protect him as he tries to capture himself a bride, in accordance with a now-disused Lossoth ritual.

Objective 1

Talk to Kaj.

Kaj: 'You are fortunate to be able to witness this ritual, you know; few Sivullinen get to see it. It has... well, fallen out of use in recent times.
'I am going to go into that house with the components. When I come out, I will have a...bundle on the sledge.
'Your job is to make sure I am not interrupted while I am securing the bundle inside -- she, that is, there are three brothers, and they might object, but no-one is getting hurt! I promise.'

Objective 2

  • Prevent Pinja's brothers from interrupting Kaj

Pinja has three brothers. Make sure they do not interrupt Kaj in his performance of the ritual for which you helped him prepare.

Kaj says, "Pinja's brothers don't approve of me. I double-checked, er, that is... I've been told that they're on a hunting trip. So we should be fine."
Kaj says, "But just in case... Keep an eye out, will you? And -- wish me luck!"
Etu: 'Who are you? What are you doing here?
'That braggart Kaj? He is not half good enough for Pinja -- I do not care if he is the chieftain's son!
'Get out of our way. We will teach him a lesson he shall not soon forget! No? Then you shall be taught in his place!'
Etu says, "You will regret this insult!"
Ikka says, "You dare come to our home and cause trouble for our sister?"
Etu says, "We will fetch Manu. He will get rid of you for certain, interloper!"
Ikka says, "Too rich for my blood!"

Objective 3

  • Prevent Pinja's brothers from interrupting Kaj

Pinja has three brothers. Make sure they do not interrupt Kaj in his performance of the ritual for which you helped him prepare.

Manu: 'What is this that I have been told? You are helping that bashful little flower Kaj? Who do you think you are, Sivullinen?
'You may have driven my brothers off, but you will not find me so easy to deal with!'
Manu says, "Oh, you are in trouble now, right enough!"
Manu says, "Spirits of the ice, I do not believe this! Forced to flee by a soft-lander!"

Objective 4

  • Talk to Pinja

Kaj's prospective bride seems to have offered some unexpected resistance. Perhaps she had not been informed of the ritual?

Kaj says, "Ow. That didn't go quite, ow. As I had hoped it would."
Pinja says, "How dare you try to carry me off like so much cut timber?! ...And on a sledge, no less!"
Kaj says, "I found accounts of this ritual, and it looked like it might remove some of the guesswork..."
Pinja says, "I would not have had a problem being alone with you, had you but asked."
Kaj says, "Er. Well. All right, then. Is that... Um. ....Will you marry me?"
Pinja says, "You would have gotten that answer if you'd asked me a year ago. Of course I shall marry you."
Kaj says, "Hah! You see? It worked; the ritual worked! ...This is the best day ever."
Pinja: 'This is the most ridiculous situation I think I have ever been in. I think it would be best if you were to leave me to sort it out.'
Pinja: 'I think we should be able to handle this matter from here on out, Sivullinen.'
