Once in Qeynos, Firiona explains the growing level of unrest throughout Norrath and that the latest of such conflicts is brewing in Qeynos. 'Someone has been stirring a war between Barbarians and Gnolls. This is not an isolated incident, as you learned in Karana. I am troubled -- is all of Norrath to be engulfed by war?'
The Wolves of the Norrath led by Kylan O'Danos have left Diren Hold and are heading straight for Blackburrow. Further, another army has been spotted advancing on Diren Hold.
'This war shall not be,' Firiona says. 'Oathbound, you must convince O'Danos to return to Diren Hold at any cost. If they cross swords with the Gnolls, there will be no stopping this war.'
You propose to get O'Danos's attention, by confronting his warriors if necessary. If you must fight the Barbarians, you will only knock them out instead of killing them. By showing O'Danos strength on the battlefield you will gain his respect and he will listen to you.
'But be certain not to kill O'Danos,' Firiona warns. 'If he dies, all is lost. And be quick about it! He's not a patient man.'
You arrive at Blackburrow ahead of O'Danos's army. Before you lies the vanguard of the Wolves of the North, Kylan O'Danos at the head of the host. As you announce your refusal to let the army pass and your demands for an audience with O'Danos, several burly Barbarians step forward, none too happy with your meddling...
Defeat your opponent by questing. If Kylan O'Danos's avatar is destroyed, or he runs out of cards, you lose the game.
Game Win Lore
You fight your way through the ranks of Barbarians, pushing aside any who gets in your way and sidestepping the blows of others. Though you are soon surrounded by Barbarians, you are now before Kylan O'Danos's honor guard, who are none too happy with your presence.
'Hail, Kylan O'Danos, Lord of the Barbarians!' You salute Kylan and the Barbarians step back.
O'Danos replies, 'Halt! Ye do not have an air of one who goes to battle in search of mere slaughter. What be yer purpose here?'
You lower your weapons and explain to him that you have not come to wage war but with a message warning him of the security of Diren Hold.
O'Danos strides forward from his honor guard, motioning them to lower their weapons. 'Ye be a tough and fleet-footed warrior,' his voice rumbles, 'and yer words be those of a man of honor. Though we have struggled on the field o' battle, I see ye have sought to disarm more than to slay, though ye had plenty o' opportunity. The Wolves o' the North will stand down, and I'll speak with Firiona Vie in person. Bring me to her.'
You have completed your mission with Kylan O'Danos!
Game Loss Lore
The horde of the Wolves of the Norrath encircles you, Barbarian warriors leaping forward to strike a blow, then back. Before you stands a Barbarian taller than all the others, gripping a large shield and massive battle axe.
'I am Kylan O'Danos,' he roars, waving the axe. 'Though ye be so eager to greet me by barring me path, me axe be even more eager to cleave yer skull!' The Barbarians beat their weapons upon shields and bucklers, rooting him on.
O'Danos leaps forward, and with a single blow, shatters your weapons and armor, knocking you onto the battlefield. He howls his war cry, and raises his battle axe again, the blade shining in the sun. As O'Danos brings down his axe, regardless of your feelings for yourself, you regret being unable to complete your mission and the even greater tragedy that will come of it.
