Walkthrough[edit]

Report to Rytlock Brimstone at the top of the Imperator's Core inside the Black Citadel. He will inform you that a former warband member of yours, Rage Steeltongue, has been spotted outside the citadel gates and that he has joined the Flame Legion.

Then you will meet Rytlock outside the gates and and search for Rage and any suspicious behavior. Your first objective will be to speak to Rancher Tolona Ironrustler in regards to the herd of cattle. Examine the suspicious Pack Bulls sent to the village by Rage Steeltongue. Check each of the packed bulls and if any smells of oil and gunpowder, shoo it from the village - all such packed bulls will explode shortly after. When only genuine packed bulls remain, continue your way through the village to the next objective.

Once there, you will meet a charr named Gnarl Snagtooth who was given a strange box of some kind from Rage Steeltongue. After you interact with the box, waves of fire elementals will appear. Make sure you kill all of them with the help of surrounding charr allies and then proceed to the armory.

On the way to the armory a wounded charr warrior, Aziel Jawbreak, will inform you that Rage Steeltongue is just ahead. After a short dialogue, you will face waves of Flame Legion warriors attacking you from all sides. Rage himself will join the battle after his forces are nearly defeated. Once you kill him the mission is completed.

At Blood Tribune Office[edit]

Speaking to your warband members:

Clawspur: New, bigger warband. Excellent.
Talk end option tango.png
Glad you think so. But you've got to control your enthusiasm. These long speeches of yours are making my head spin.
Dinky: Wow, our warband's getting new members faster than I can learn new names.
Talk end option tango.png
Relax. This is a good thing.
Euryale: The warband's really growing. Can't wake to break 'em in...or send 'em home broken.
Talk end option tango.png
They're already broken in. We just have to make them feel welcome.
Maverick: I can't believe my group of admirers is growing so fast.
Talk end option tango.png
If you mean our warband, then I agree.
Reeva: Enough recruiting. Let's take this warband on the road.
Talk end option tango.png
We will. And when we do, we'll take no prisoners.
Elexus Shredskin: Reporting in, Legionnaire <Character name>.
Talk end option tango.png
I need to speak with Tribune Brimstone.
Fyon the Wraith: Looks like young Brimstone is waiting for us.
Talk end option tango.png
Young...? Right. Heh. I'll check in with you after my report.
Sour Doomsday: Looks like Tribune Brimstone is waiting for us.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll check in with you after my report.

Cinematic with Rytlock:

(If you completed Magic Users)
<Character name>: Good news, Tribune. Soure Doomsday has joined my warband.
Rytlock Brimstone: Well done, Legionnaire. Here’s your next assignment.
Rytlock Brimstone: One of Steelbane’s men, Rage Steeltongue, has become a bit of a problem. After you took over, he joined the Flame Legion. He’s determined to bring you down at any cost.
<Character name>: Not a problem. We’ll drag him back to Blood by his scrawny tail.
Rytlock Brimstone: No. There’s a time for mercy, and a time for mercy-killing. I’m not giving Rage the chance to betray Blood Legion twice.
<Character name>: We’ll give him a one-way trip to the Mists.
Rytlock Brimstone: That’s the plan. Meet me down by the citadel gates when you’re ready to deploy. Dismissed.
(If completed The End of the Line)
<Character name>: Good news, Tribune. Fyon the Wraith has joined my warband.
Rytlock Brimstone: Well done, Legionnaire. Here’s your next assignment.
Rytlock Brimstone: One of Steelbane’s men, Rage Steeltongue, has become a bit of a problem. After you took over, he joined the Flame Legion. He’s determined to bring you down at any cost.
<Character name>: I'll drag him back to Blood by the scruff of his filthy neck.
Rytlock Brimstone: No. There’s a time for mercy, and a time for mercy-killing. I’m not giving Rage the chance to betray Blood Legion twice.
<Character name>: Then we'll give him a real torch party.
Rytlock Brimstone: That’s the plan. Meet me down by the citadel gates when you’re ready to deploy. Dismissed.

Talking to Rytlock Brimstone after cinematic:

Rytlock Brimstone: I've got legion business to attend to, but I'll meet up with you in front of the gates. Dismissed.
Talk end option tango.png
Understood.

Speaking to your warband members:

Elexus Shredskin: Reporting in, Legionnaire <Character name>.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you know a guy named Rage? Rage Steeltongue?
Rage? Yeah, but he wasn't "Steeltongue" then. He was just a gladium. Biggest bully in the fahrar, as I remember. I thought one of his own warband might kill him one of these days.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds like the same idiot. Thanks for the information.
Talk end option tango.png
At ease. Let's go kick Steeltongue's sorry tail.
Fyon the Wraith: If there's anything that burns me more than Ascalonian ghosts, it's traitors.
Dignity
He's not just a traitor, he's a fool. Soon he'll be a dead fool.
Well said!
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. Let's move out.
Talk more option tango.png
He's a disgrace to the Blood Legion. We'll solve that.
I could've ended up like him in my younger days. Not anymore. I learned to master my anger, and it became a strength. Too bad for this guy, but he won't have a chance to figure that out.
Talk end option tango.png
Well put. Let's move out.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll meet you outside the citadel.
Soure Doomsday: I hate Flame Legion. They tried to force me to join, and I was still kicking and screaming. I can't imagine anyone doing it willingly.
Charisma
You were in his shoes, but you resisted. I'm glad to have you on my team.
I owe you for getting me out of that. I'm glad to be part of the warband, Legionnaire <Character name>.
Talk end option tango.png
Appreciated. Let's move out.
Talk more option tango.png
Rage is a disgrace to the Blood Legion. He's an embarrassment to the Black Citadel.
We'll get him, Legionnaire. Count on it.
Talk end option tango.png
That we will. Let's move out.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll meet you outside the citadel.

At Village of Smokestead[edit]

Cinematic with Rytlock:

Rytlock Brimstone: At ease, Legionnaire. Ready to get started?
<Character name>: More than ready, Tribune Brimstone. What’s our next move?
Rytlock Brimstone: That mongrel toady, Rage Steeltongue, was spotted in the area. Start with those cattle ranchers — find out why they’re here and if they’ve seen anything unusual. Get moving!
<Character name>: Sir, yes sir!

Speaking to Rytlock after cinematic:

Rytlock Brimstone: Something's definitely up. There's no reason for all these cows to be here. Talk to the rancher and find out why they're here..
Talk end option tango.png
Understood.

Talking to your warband members:

Clawspur: Let's find this Steeltongue punk.
Talk end option tango.png
Agreed.
Dinky: Steeltongue's a real creep. Did I tell you that when you weren't around, he called me Donkey instead of Dinky? I hate that guy!
Talk end option tango.png
We'll make him pay for that, buddy. My word on it.
Euryale: Steeltongue! I hate him so much! Callous, ignorant, arrogant... Can we just kill him already?
Talk end option tango.png
As soon as we find him. I promise you that.
Maverick: I tell you, I am getting so tired of this Steeltongue punk. Why does he get all the attention.
Talk end option tango.png
Because he's an arrogant, honorless cur. Trust me, it's not the kind of attention you want.
Reeva: I'm worried. What if Rage has something terrible planned? What if this is all a trap?
Talk end option tango.png
If it is, we'll face it together. Just trust me.
Elexus Shredskin: Your "friend" Rage Steeltongue's kind of a terror, isn't he?.
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah. And he's not my friend—he's my target. Let's get a move on.
Fyon the Wraith: I've known fools like this Steeltongue in my time. Temperamental, arrogant...we need to put him down quick, before he causes more trouble.
Talk end option tango.png
Agreed.
Soure Doomsday: You say this Steeltongue was recruited by your ex-legionnaire? Where'd they get together?
Talk end option tango.png
Probably at some kind of meet-and-greet for jerks.

Talking to Rancher Tolona Ironrustler:

Watch your step around my stock. They're harmless, not housebroken.
Talk more option tango.png
Why are the cows here?
Some legionnaire came to the ranch and ordered me to herd them into the citadel. And when a legionnaire orders me to herd my cattle into the citadel, I herd my cattle into the citadel.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you know which legionnaire gave the order?
No. Never seen him before, and he didn't give a name. Helped with a few packs, though. Did a passable job, but it sounds like he may have mixed some tools in with the feed.
Talk quest option tango.png
I'll need to examine those packs.
Seems like everyone wants to poke around my cows today. Help yourself.
Talk end option tango.png
I will.
Talk end option tango.png
Something's not right here. I'll be back as soon as I figure out what.
Talk end option tango.png
That's odd. Stick around in case I have more questions.
Talk more option tango.png
Why did you bring these cows in now?
This Blood Legionnaire said a Flame Legion attack was incoming and that my ranch was in danger. He ordered me to herd them here, for safety.
Talk more option tango.png
What was the legionnaire's name?
He wouldn't say. He was in such a rush he even helped me with the packs. Did a passable job. But from the sound of it, he may have mixed in a few tools with the grain.
Talk quest option tango.png
I need to examine those packs. Same as "I'll need to examine those packs."
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds suspicious. Wait here until I get back.
Talk end option tango.png
Something's wrong. I'll come back when I figure out what.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll remember that. Thanks.

Speaking with NPCs after asking to examine the cattle:

Rancher Tolona Ironrustler: If the Flame Legion was messing with my shipment, I'd know. What's going on?
Talk end option tango.png
No backtalk, soldier. No cow is above suspicion.
Rytlock Brimstone: The imposter legionnaire has to be Steeltongue. Lucky for us, he isn't the sharpest blade in the corpse.
Talk end option tango.png
Then he'll be all the easier for us to hunt down.
Pack Bull: The beast's pack smells of grain and leather, nothing more.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave.
Pack Bull: The beast's burden smells of gunpowder and oiled metal. It's also ticking.
Talk quest option tango.png
Shoo it from the city.
Talk end option tango.png
Leave it alone.

After dealing with one compromised cow:

Rancher Strodum Crushmaw: Did you have to shoo the exploding cow right toward me?
Ferocity
Yes.
Oh, you're cute. Real cute.
Charisma
You're not bad yourself.
I wasn't...uh...Jeez.
Talk end option tango.png
Gotcha!
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck with those walking steaks.
Dignity
I'm on an important mission. Even more lives could have been in danger.
Right. Carry on. I'll uh, get back to...cows. Yes. Cows.
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png
On I go!

Cinematic with Tolona:

Rancher Tolona Ironrustler: Hmm. You know, if I wasn’t looking at a big pile of cow chunks, I’d be laughing.
<Character name>: Laugh later. Right now I need to know where those Flame Legion imposters went.
Rancher Tolona Ironrustler: They headed deeper into town. You’ll find them if you go that way.
Rytlock Brimstone: Lead the way, Legionnaire. Rage just got promoted from “mongrel toady” to “serious threat.”

After the cinematic:

Clawspur: I should have cut Rage's throat the first time I saw him.
Dinky: Those exploding cows made me hungry.
Euryale: Rage was one of us once. We should be the ones to put him down.
Maverick: When we find this joker, I'm going to kill him twice before he hits the ground.
Reeva: Ahh! I can't wait to give ol' Rage what's coming to him.

Talking to your warband members:

Clawspur: Exploding cows? Heh. Too bad they're not self-cooking, too. Almost liking Steeltongue now...almost.
Talk end option tango.png
That would be amazing.
Dinky: Those cows exploded! EX-PLOH-DED! I don't understand it! WHAT DID THEY EAT?
Talk end option tango.png
They didn't eat anything, Dinky. Steeltongue did it. And we're going to get him.
Euryale: This is a prime example of the reason tech will never overcome magic. Even stupid people can use tech.
Talk end option tango.png
Tell me about it.
Maverick: Ugh! There are gobs of cow in my fur! Get it out! That's disgusting!
Talk end option tango.png
Calm down and shake it off, Mav. Literally.
Reeva: Exploding cows? I take it back. If that's his plan, I'm not nearly as worried.
Talk end option tango.png
See? I told you everything would be fine.
Elexus Shredskin: That was horrible! I can't believe that actually happened!
Talk end option tango.png
What a waste of cow.
Fyon the Wraith: Now that...heh, that was a new experience!
Talk end option tango.png
I'm still cleaning cow out of my fur. Yuck.
Soure Doomsday: That reminds me of childhood pranks. Only we used pumpkins, not cows.
Talk end option tango.png
Probably easier to get pumpkin out of your fur.

Talking to Rancher Tolona Ironrustler:

Rancher Tolona Ironrustler: What kind of malefactor rigs a hardworking rancher's cows to explode? Cows are for milking and eating, not blowing up. If I see that legionnaire again, I'll march HIM to the slaughterhouse.
Dignity
I'll handle it. Just get these cows out of the citadel.
Roger that. You heard the legionnaire! Get movin'!
Talk end option tango.png
Good luck.
Talk end option tango.png
That's what I'm about to do.

When entering Smokestead:

Clawspur: At least it's easy to tell where Rage has been.
Dinky: Look at all the stuff and people! I should spend more time in the city.
Euryale: That traitorous... I hate Rage so much now I can barely talk.
Maverick: Selling out his own city? Death's too good for that piece of trash.
Reeva: Should've known Rage was a jerk. "Steeltongue"? Complete jerk name.
Fyon the Wraith: This city's come a long way. I'm not about to let some angry punk mess it up.
Soure Doomsday: Something's not right. I smell fire magic.

Speaking to Gnarl Snagtooth:

Gnarl Snagtooth: Another inspection? Like I told the last guy—the defenses still have a way to go, but we're making progress.
Talk more option tango.png
This is no inspection. Have you seen an unfamiliar officer around?
I didn't know the legionnaire who inspected our supplies. But he knew procedure and had the right uniform. And he complimented me on my vigilance. Seemed on the level.
Talk quest option tango.png
Drop that crate and step back, soldier. Right now!
Talk quest option tango.png
Let me see that thing.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll keep looking, then. Later.
Talk end option tango.png
Stand by, soldier. I need to check something, but I'll be back.

During the fight:

Rytlock Brimstone: Fire magic on my watch? Hmph. Once we shut down Rage's little sabotage operation, I'm going to cut his heart out and feed it to him.
Fyon the Wraith: In my day, we dealt with saboteurs blade-first.
Soure Doomsday: That's strong magic here. Rage much be working with the Flame Legion.

After killing the summoned creatures:

Rytlock Brimstone: Rage couldn't cook up something like this on his own.
Rytlock Brimstone: He must have Flame Legion allies. We have intelligence that they were planning something. This might be a strike of opportunity.
Rytlock Brimstone: Come on. Let's move.

Talking to Rytlock Brimstone:

Rytlock Brimstone: Look here—this is complicated spellwork, and Steeltongue has all the magical talent of an over-used hankie.
Talk end option tango.png
You're right; he's with the Flame Legion. Better find this dangerous idiot soon.

Talking to your warband members:

Clawspur: Didn't like that as much as I liked the cows. Wrong kind of explosion.
Talk end option tango.png
Steeltongue's sense of humor leaves a lot to be desired.
Dinky: First the cows and now the crates. Are you sure it wasn't because of something they all ate?
Talk end option tango.png
Crates don't eat. I'm telling you, it was Steeltongue. Just trust me, okay?
Euryale: Everything's exploding, and I haven't even started blowing things up myself!
Talk end option tango.png
You'll have a chance-as soon as we catch up to Steeltongue.
Maverick: First cows, now crates. This guy's a real firecracker.
Talk end option tango.png
We'll find a way to turn the tables. I promise you that.
Reeva: Exploding crates are worse than exploding cows! Let's find this guy before he can do more harm.
Talk end option tango.png
Definitely.
Elexus Shredskin: Steeltongue's kind of a one-note song, isn't he? Seems everything's exploding nowadays.
Talk end option tango.png
We'll have to catch up with him and see if we can't change the beat.
Fyon the Wraith: This guy's not very bright. If at first you don't succeed, bomb, bomb again.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds like Steeltongue, all right.
Soure Doomsday: This Steeltongue doesn't think ahead, does he? I mean, does he really think we'd be that easy to blow up?.
Talk end option tango.png
I wouldn't call him much of a thinker.

Cinematic with Aziel Jawbreak:

<Character name>: What happened to you, soldier?
Aziel Jawbreak: It was a Blood legionnaire. He seemed friendly, but when he clapped me on the shoulder all the strength just drained right out of me.
Aziel Jawbreak: He took my clothes, my boots, my entire kit.
<Character name>: Tell us where he went, and then get yourself to the infirmary.
Aziel Jawbreak: He was headed for the scrap yard. Give him a good thrashing for me when you find him.

Talking to Aziel Jawbreak after the cinematic:

Aziel Jawbreak: Watch out for that fake legionnaire. He's a madman.
Talk end option tango.png
We'll be careful. Keep your head straight, soldier.

When approaching the scrap yard:

Rytlock Brimstone: More dazed soldiers staggering around in their skivvies. Either we're on the right track, or we missed the best party ever.

Cinematic with Rage Steeltongue:

Smoke Shaman: Did you get the gear?
Rage Steeltongue: Got it right here. Put it on and you’ll have free run of the place. They won’t figure out they’ve been infiltrated until the damage has already been done.
<Character name>: It’s over, Steeltongue. I took that coward Steelbane, and now it’s your turn. Just tell me one thing.
<Character name>: Why? Why’d you betray us and join the Flame Legion? Too proud to serve your new legionnaire?
Rage Steeltongue: I had it all set. That coward Steelbane was the only thing between me and taking over this warband. Then you came along and beat me to it.
Rage Steeltongue: At the end of the day, I don’t care whose banner I serve under as long as I’m the one giving the orders.
Rage Steeltongue: Like right now, “boss.” I’m ordering you to die.

During the fight:

Veteran Smoke Shaman: Flame Legion! Rally to me!
Rage Steeltongue: Is that all you've got? Come on! I won't fall or beg like Steelbane did!
Rage Steeltongue: Cover me!

Cinematic after defeating Rage Steeltongue:

<Character name>: The Flame Legion must be getting desperate if they’re resorting to cow bombs.
Rytlock Brimstone: Desperation is a weapon, Legionnaire. It they’re targeting our defenses, they’re planning a major assault on the city.
Rytlock Brimstone: Tactically, a night attack makes the most sense. When it comes, I need you and your warband in the field.
Rytlock Brimstone: When the fighting starts, your orders are to maneuver behind their front line troops and take out the rear guard.
Rytlock Brimstone: Without mages and artillery to support the main force, they’ll never breach the Black Citadel’s walls. It’s an important job. Can you handle it?
<Character name>: My soldiers are ready, sir. We won’t let Blood Legion down.
Rytlock Brimstone: Good. Dismissed.

Talking to Rytlock Brimstone:

Rytlock Brimstone: Nice work. Steeltongue's out of action and the Flame Legion booby traps were only able to do negligible damage.
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you, sir.

Talking to your warband members:

Clawspur: Booyah. Great job, Legionnaire.
Talk end option tango.png
You too, buddy.
Dinky: You were right! It was Steeltongue. Yup. I should have known all along.
Talk end option tango.png
I told you so, buddy.
Euryale: Score one for the good guys!
Talk end option tango.png
We did well, Euryale. No doubt about it.
Maverick: Hoo-ah! Now let Steeltongue try to say he's better than me! I mean, uh, great job, Legionnaire!
Talk end option tango.png
Sure. Thanks.
Reeva: You did it! I'm so proud of you, Legionnaire <character name>!
Talk end option tango.png
See, Reeva? We can handle anything if we just stick together.
Elexus Shredskin: You're amazing, Legionnaire <character name>.
Talk end option tango.png
That wasn't just me—that was all of us. Thanks.
Fyon the Wraith: Attaway to do it! Good work on that one.
Talk end option tango.png
Couldn't have done it without you.
Soure Doomsday: I'm glad that's handled. Great job, Legionnaire <character name>.
Talk end option tango.png
You too, Soure. Good work.

My story[edit]

Rage Suppression.jpg

After I recruited a new soldier for my warband, Rytlock told me that the traitorous Rage Steeltongue has been seen inside the Black Citadel. We'd better find him before he causes serious trouble.

Rytlock and I stopped Rage Steeltongue from sabotaging the Black Citadel's defenses. Rage was working with the Flame Legion, so they must be planning something big.
