Inquisitor Gnomon of the Silver Flame has been angered by a 'cult' beneath the House Phiarlan ward that preaches the faith of the Sovereign Host to the poor and indigent. Although Gnomon's motives seemed suspect, you agreed to drive the worshipers out of their hidden chapel.

Spoiler Warning: Information below this point can be considered spoiler material!


  • Slaughter at least ten elven preachers of the Sovereign Host
  • Kill Celine Peacemaker and Oisin the Merciful
  • (Optional) Slaughter a dozen halfling mercenaries +10% Bonus.( ♣37 ♦65 ♥69 ♠72 )
  • (Optional) Slaughter all the commoners who have offended the Silver Flame - 15 total +10% Bonus.( ♣37 ♦65 ♥69 ♠72 )

What to Expect

  • Traps (fixed)

Known Traps

Trap DCs

  • Acid trap in the north-south passage, where a wall juts out. The control box is on the north side of the wall near the end.
  • Fire traps at the intersection, one on each corner, pointing inwards. The control box for each trap is right next to them; before the intersection for the two northern traps, and past it for the two southern ones.

Tips and Misc

  • If you aren't looking for the kills' bonus, there is no reason to go into the small dead end room on the east end of the first passage. It traps you to fight oozes, then you turn a valve to get back out. The valve is not needed to complete the objectives.
  • It is impossible to get Insidious Cunning or Devious in this quest, as the 12 required kills (ten elven preachers + Celine + Oisin = 12) results in Discreet.
