Bestowal dialogue

'This spider-queen -- Iornaith by name -- and her ways are known to me. She will have hidden herself in Sprigley's house and blocked all the entrances, save one.

'If you search the tunnels below the house, I would wager you will find a hidden passage leading to Iornaith's lair. The vile thing must be slain, or Archet will be overrun by her brood.

'Would that I were hale and could heft an axe! But that time has passed. Now, the mantle of Spider-bane must pass to you, if you'll have it. I do not suggest you try to face her alone.'

Background

An ancient spider-queen has pursued Atli Spider-bane to Archet and invaded Cal Sprigley's farm.

Objective 1

Sprigley's farm is south of Bronwe's Folly. One entrance to the spider tunnels lies through the cellar of Sprigley's shed, while the other is through the cave mouth due west of the Hunter's Lodge.

To prevent Iornaith's brood from overrunning Archet, Atli Spider-bane has asked you to find and slay the spider-queen. Atli suggests searching the spider caves beneath Sprigley's farm for a secret entrance into the Iornaith's lair. He also suggested you take allies.

Atli Spider-bane: 'This spider is clever. Seek the entrance to her lair beneath Sprigley's farm. And beware her fangs! Though I ruined her eyes, she is ancient and full of malice.'
Defeated Iornaith

Objective 2

Atli Spider-bane can be found at the north end of Archet, west of the spider-cave, north-west of Sprigley's farm.

You should take news of Iornaith's defeat to Atli Spider-bane.

Atli Spider-bane: '"Many seeds did the Dread-weaver sow throughout our mountains...."
'Because of you, another of those seeds has passed from the world.
'I owe you a great debt...for Iornaith's death and for my life. Accept this reward, and with it, the friendship of Atli Spider-bane!'
