'Ha! Now we can finally find the father-lode!
'Hm. Wait a moment. These directions are not exactly what I was expecting:
'They had a poetic turn back in the old days. But I wish they were more precise....
'Well, I think we at least have some idea how to proceed. The map and those directions together speak clearly to me of a cliff north-west of Othrikar. All you have to do is find a suitable rock formation that is rich with ore. If you do, take a sample, and we'll see if it's the true father-lode.'
With the map you recovered from Foreman Nyrad and the runes from the old records, Regin may have determined the general location of the father-lode.
The father-lode is somewhere to the north-west of Othrikar.
The old records combined with the mining map suggested to Regin the location of the father-lode, but the directions were far from precise. Regin has asked you to find a suitable rock formation and take an ore sample.
Regin is at Othrikar.
You found a rock formation matching the description Regin compiled from the map and old records. You should bring the ore sample you took from the site back to Regin.
