The researcher is not missing. He is dead. I buried him in a grave nearby.
He collapsed in front of my door one night, covered in blood. Why did he come to me?... Maybe it is because my house was the only one in the village with a lamp still lit, I don't know...
I was unable to treat his wounds, and could only promise him what he asked of me. He said that he had found the source of the abnormal fluctuations of magic power, and that he had buried the evidence under Ancient Altar in the middle of the Lake of Eternal Silence. He wanted me to give this evidence to his partner.
Unfortunately, just as I noticed them, the one in the long robe saw me... And I know I am being watched now. So I need someone to help me, someone who can deal with that horrible beast. That is why I need you.
Go and search the Ancient Altar in the Lake of Eternal Silence! Find whatever it was the researcher hid there, and give it to the one called Audy in Tavern "The Distillery". Please be careful. Whoever is watching me may have already seen you.
You are attacked by a Zurhidon Messenger and 2 Morcus Beasts (all 3 are Elite), and will almost certainly die, but it is ok. You resurrect a short distance from the Tavern, you are still young enough to use an Atonement Voucher, and you have the Buried Evidence.
If you are prepared to run for it as soon as you examine the altar you can escape this death. The Morcus Beasts are not all that fond of swimming.
