The Jindosh Lock

Opposing Factions

Overseers and Howlers will attack on sight inside their territories unless you're carrying their enemy's leader.

Paolo's Resurrection

Paolo has some kind of charm that allows him to ressurect once a day. In order to kill him, he needs to be eliminated twice.

Paolo's Resurrection

Paolo disappeared into a swarm of rats and resurrected elsewhere. To truly die, he must be killed twice in one day.

The Overseers have captured someone named Durante who knows the combination to the Jindosh Lock. Investigate the Overseer Outpost.

Vice Overseer Byrne Upstairs

You overheard a conversation indicating that Vice Overseer Byrne is upstairs in his office.
