Sanson
We've continued our surveillance of Nourval's activities. It's beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has an ulterior motive.
Sanson
You must...finish this...
Sanson
He leaves us no choice!
Sanson
Poisoned arrows!?
Sanson
Urgh! Wh-Whence comes this power!?
Guydelot
The only explanation being there's a mole in the garrison leaking them intelligence.
Sanson
And who could that mole be save for Nourval? Every move of his marks him as the prime suspect.
Sanson
We know little and less of Nourval's plot, but it can only lead to ill. We must needs bring it to light, and swiftly, before he can do any more harm.
Sanson
To that end, Guydelot and I have been keeping Nourval close, allowing him no chance to act. By now he will be positively itching to rendezvous with his accomplices.
Sanson
And this is where you come in, . We need you to feed Nourval some false information─that I am in an Alliance meeting, and Guydelot...a drunken stupor.
Sanson
Our man will not pass up the chance to sneak out, and he is like to do so with greater haste than usual. This will afford us an opening to shadow him to his destination.
Guydelot
...Drunken stupor? Really?
Sanson
Not so flattering, I know, but you cannot deny that it's believable.
Sanson
Now then, , pray go to Nourval and plant our misinformation. Once you have done so, come and meet us outside the castrum.
Nourval
...Both of them unavailable? And there I was ready to strike out on the trail of a promising lead!
Nourval
Well, disappointing though it is, the search will have to wait. Now, if you will excuse me, I have some business to attend to.
Sanson
It worked, my friend! Nourval rushed out of the castrum not a moment ago!
Sanson
He was headed east, towards a ruin called Gyr Kehim. Guydelot trails him even as we speak. Come, let us join the chase.
Sanson
What is he up to?
Guydelot
It's a good old-fashioned tryst. Let's have us a peek, shall we?
Maskman
We have it, my lord! Turned it up among his retainer's possessions!
Nourval
At long last, Gylbarde's journal...and not a moment too soon. I'd just about outstayed my welcome at the garrison.
Nourval
When that adventurer caught us falling upon the patrol, I had feared that the game was up.
Nourval
But thankfully, the other two were blind fools. All this time watching me, and they didn't see a thing. Hehehe...
Maskman
We've only skimmed the tome, but it seems you were right. About what happened to Lord Vainchelon.
Nourval
Was there ever any doubt? Once we return to Gridania and make this knowledge public, none shall harbor so much as a shred of sympathy for Ala Mhigo.
Nourval
That shall pave the way for us to propagate Lord Vainchelon's will...and advance our agenda.
Sanson
But how did Nourval come to lead such a crew? And what is this talk of Vainchelon?
Guydelot
What, the Gridanian general sung about in nigh a hundred songs, who led our forces against Gylbarde in the Autumn War?
Sanson
Only to die of an illness before the fighting was over. Aye, the very same. Having lost his leadership, we would have lost the war entirely had the other nations not come to our aid.
Guydelot
Don't know about the rest of you, but it seems to me our damning little secret pertains to Vainchelon.
Sanson
And Nourval seeks to use it to stoke the fires of anti-Ala Mhigan sentiment to some sinister end. This cannot be borne─we cannot let them have the journal! Are you with me?
Nourval
Hmph, perhaps you are not such blind fools after all. Very well, take your journal.
Sanson
Wh-What do you mean, your own blood?
Sanson
Did I mishear? Did he just say that Vainchelon was his ancestor?
Guydelot
Aye, that's what it sounded like. Vainchelon, the folk hero loved by all, celebrated in countless songs...and that pain in the rear's his descendant. Never would've guessed. Anyroad, we've got bigger concerns. Let's see what this musty old tome's hiding.
Sanson
“To Vainchelon I extended an invitation to negotiate peace. The meeting must be in secret, I explained, for not all of my officers share my view. My opponent accepted and arrived at the appointed hour.”
Guydelot
Peace? Everybody knows there weren't no peace on offer. The hells' this about?
Sanson
Wait, it continues: “Without suspicion, he took his seat. And without suspicion, he drank the poisoned wine. The effect was swift and sure, and within moments the man lay dead at my feet.”
Guydelot
Wait, Vainchelon was murdered? By poison!?
Sanson
To this day, Lord Vainchelon remains an object of worship among many Gridanians. Were they to learn of this, the present grumblings against Ala Mhigan liberation are liable to grow into large-scale protests.
Sanson
To this day, Lord Vainchelon remains an object of worship among many Gridanians. Were they to learn of this, it would pose a serious and ongoing impediment to diplomatic relations.
Guydelot
There's no denying that some Ala Mhigans did some terrible things in the past, but what Nourval's trying to do ain't no better. Might be as he's after the truth, but nothing good'll come of this, and certainly not any decent songs.
Sanson
The truth... Tell me, Guydelot. When we surrender this journal to our superiors, what do you think they would do with the knowledge?
Guydelot
The Seedseers aside, I reckon the brass hats at the Adders' Nest would want to cover it up. Bury it nice and deep and pretend it never existed.
Sanson
Aye... Nor would I put it past them to exploit the knowledge to gain leverage in dealings with Ala Mhigo. But whatever they may do is none of our concern, is it? Duty compels us to hand the journal over to headquarters...
Sanson
No, forgive me this unseemly display. Guydelot has the right of it. As the leader, mine is the burden of decision.
Guydelot
At any rate, this ain't the place for moral dilemmas. Let's get ourselves back to the castrum afore Nourval and his mates decide they want to have another go.
Guydelot
Sanson's still trying to make up his mind. Well, not like I'm in a hurry or nothing.
Sanson
Guydelot has disappeared somewhere in the castrum. Giving me room to ponder matters, I shouldn't doubt.
Sanson
However, one mystery remains. It appears one of Vainchelon's sons was present at the fateful meeting.
Sanson
Landrenel was his name, and he narrowly escaped with his life. But instead of crying bloody murder, he announced that his sire had died of illness.
Sanson
Here is a man who witnessed his own flesh and blood slain, and in the most underhanded manner, yet he concealed the truth. Why did he do this? I do not understand...
Sanson
But it avails us naught to agonize over the motives of those who lived in the past. Nay, our quandary concerns the future.
Sanson
For the future of both nations, the truth is best kept buried. No good can come of digging it up. 'Tis crystal clear what must be done.
Sanson
And yet, though my mind sees the logic, my heart rebels against the idea. Forgive me, . It seems I require more time to think on it.

#1
Sanson is poised to pounce upon Nourval.
#2
Following extended surveillance, Sanson and Guydelot are confident that Nourval is in league with the masked bandits. In order to catch the man redhanded, Sanson has contrived to lure him out of the castrum with his guard lowered. Find Nourval inside the stronghold and lead him into thinking that the way is clear.
#3
You inform Nourval that your two comrades are tied up, and the man takes the bait and hastens away. Join Sanson outside the castrum.
#4
Sanson is pleased that his ploy has worked, and even now Guydelot shadows Nourval to his destination. Make your way to the ruin called Gyr Kehim to the northeast and join your fellow bard on the chase.
#5
You catch Nourval meeting with the masked bandits, who have found the tome you seek─the journal of the Ala Mhigan general Gylbarde. Eavesdropping on their conversation, you learn their true purpose: stoking the fires of anti-Ala Mhigan sentiment. Determined not to let this come to pass, your party confronts Nourval's, and at the end of a fierce confrontation, you emerge the victor and with the journal in your hands.
#6
The defeated Nourval flees the scene, but not before revealing that he is descended from Vainchelon. And in turn, the journal reveals that Vainchelon did not die of illness as is believed, but rather was poisoned by Gylbarde at a secret meeting. The revelation comes as a shock to Sanson and Guydelot, who worry what may happen should the truth be made public knowledge. There is clearly much to mull over; for now, return to Castrum Oriens with your comrades.
#7
Back at Castrum Oriens, Sanson shares with you further details from the journal. It appears that one of Vainchelon's sons was present at the deadly meeting, and he alone managed to escape with his life. But rather than tell of events as they happened, he kept the truth of his sire's demise a secret. Even as the man's motive boggles him, Sanson must turn his attention to his own dilemma: deciding what to do with Gylbarde's journal. Though he knows in his mind that the truth is best kept buried, in his heart he is not wholly convinced, and begs you for more time to consider the matter.

※The next bard quest will be available from Sanson upon reaching level 68.
