Ephebe quests

"Bringer of Shear Joy", in which you found a lost tool for a worshipper of Tuvelpit. (Quest level 1)


Find Adelphe on Tuvelpit Road and she will ask you to find her shears. She thinks she lost them by the statue of Tuvelpit in Slouching Gardens. Search the statue and you will find the shears. Return them to Adelphe to complete the quest.



"Bushranger", in which you helped nurse a crocodile back to health. (Quest level 3)




"Clockwork Logician", in which you helped make things run on time. (Quest level 2)

Skill:  none
Items:  none

Go to the citadel entrance on the west side of the Slouching Gardens.  Enter the citadel and look for the room with the clock and maintenance man.  If you ask to help the man, he will want you to adjust the clock to the correct time.  Making sure a personal timepiece is handy to ensure the current time, adjust the clock as appropriate.  That's all!



"Coal Bringer", in which you helped keep a smithy stocked with coal. (Quest level 2)


Find Gelon and bring him coal.



"Crocodile Doctor", in which you healed some crocodiles of their maladies. (Quest level 4)




"Kebab Connoisseur", in which you beat the odds and actually got what you ordered. (Quest level 1)


Skill:  none
Item:  an appropriate drink

Find the kebab vendor in the Harbour Market.  The vendor may have went to the same culinary school as CMOTD, for he sells a product that looks much better when wearing beer-colored goggles.  Therefore, before buying a kebab, be sure to be nice and drunk.  The equivalent of two beers is sufficient.  Once appropriately soused, order a kebab and eat it.



"Mina Miner", in which you got lucky. (Quest level 1)




"Nest Builder", in which you built a cosy nest for a pair of lovebirds. (Quest level 3)




"Penguin Rescuer", in which you rescued Patina's holy emissary from distress. (Quest level 2)




"Polygraph", in which you turned the tables of logic. (Quest level 3)

Skills:  Have to be able to speak Ephebian; otherwise none (except for some good old-fashioned head-logic)
Items:  none

In Ephebe, go to the Stavro's taverna on Tuvelpit Road.  Inside the tavern are four philosophers - Appiristus, Bulos, Chryphon and Didorus - who are whispering puzzles to each other.  In Ephebian, ask for a "puzzle".  The philosophers will provide the player with a variation upon the "Truth/Lie" logic puzzle, whereupon it must be determined by a single statement from each of three philosophers who is telling the truth and who is lying.  It is possible to "repeat" the statements.  To provide answers, the syntax is to say "<X> is a Liar" or "<X> is a Truth-teller".

There are many puzzle variations as to the proper combination.  There is no penalty to ask for another puzzle immediately after failing.  Upon successful completion of the quest, one can continue to ask for additional puzzles.
