Jandul d'Jorasco recently gave her covert blessing to an expedition that ended in disaster. The archaeologist Falcor Redwillow told Jandul that he'd located a valuable source of 'materials' for her House, and convinced her to provide him with significant funds and manpower without alerting her elders.

Tips and Misc
- There's an additional shrine not shown on the map inside the goblinoid lair, just east of the northern shrine.
- Occasionally you'll "spy two dark-skinned forms" running away as you approach certain areas; you can't target them.
- Redwillow and his surviving assistants can be found just southeast of the entrance.
- You can't return any of the items until you've recovered them all.
- You can destroy the quest items and "break" the quest by dragging them out of your inventory before turning them in.
- Jada's necklace can be found further to the southeast, guarded by Geeblebrox and several trolls.
- The bugbear fortress is immediately beyond, up the stairs.
- Savage Tooth may appear deep inside the bugbear fortress.
- Ravenous may appear to the northeast of the entrance.
- The personal effects can be found further to the northeast, guarded by Harblimar and several trolls.
