Druid Circle quests
"Honourary Druid", in which you helped upgrade an aging megalithic circle. (Quest level 6)
Go to the druid area on the southeastern side of the forest. Watch out for spiders on the way. "search stones" in the outer circle until you find the entrance to the underground area. Go down, then east and tell the clerk you want to join the Druids, and he'll give you three of the following tasks: 1) Gathering a secret herb of unusual luminance that you'll find by searching the plants in the southwest corner of the outer circle. There appears to be a skillcheck for finding the herb. 2) The watered blood of a slaughtered innocent that takes more effort. Get a bottle and go to the centre of the Druid circle around midnight. Wait until the sacrifice starts and when you see the blood running down the aqueduct run round to the exit point of the aqueduct in the southwest corner of the outer circle and 'fill bottle with water'. The bottle should end up with "diluted blood" in it, not "red water"-- if it's "red water", you tried at the wrong time. 3) Some moss that has to be collected at full moon with a sickle or other sharp object, around the circle. Syntax would be "scrape moss with dagger". 4) Ash of an unrepentant sinner. This is one I didn't have to do, I can confirm however that ash can be found by searching the fire in the clearing in the north west corner of the circle. 5) Finally a very nice chunk of diamond. This is a white gem pebble and can be found in the quarry on the east side of the circle. You need to 'mine walls with <item>' or 'mine vein with <item>'. Try a pickaxe. The hard part is that you can only find it if the light level is high enough; the quarry if examined will reveal that this is when the sun is directly overhead. Note that this must be done at midday, because light level does not actually seem to be a factor. This requires some skill in crafts.mining.gem--a bonus of 175 is enough, and a bonus of 145 seems to have partial success (some success with some failed attempts). (Note that you only seem to get one opportunity to try it per day, at midday-- subsequent attempts on the same day will only result in mining normal rocks.)
"Unwelcome Hero", in which you jumped to conclusions and ruined someone's day. (Quest level 3)
Type 'search stones' while you move around the outer circle of the Druid's Circle until you find an entrance. Go to the storage room and open crates with a 'crowbar' (broomsticks work too, as do pickaxes). Search crates for 'wirecutters'.Go to the centre of the druid circle and wait for the ceremony to begin. It's usually damn cold, so you might want to have something warm. 'Syntax Cut' Cut the wires when the little boy is tied. Archdruid will attack you. Fight. Win. Cut the wires again to set the boy free. Quest completed. Things needed: 1 crowbar or similar
