Find Archaeologist Kered (The Grand Library at -801, 414, 3).
You say, 'Do you think it wise to try to find something from Tarlisha herself?'
Archaeologist Kered says, 'No, not quite,.. Tarlisha is too canny to store her relics personally. Another once served her, a trusted valet. An elf some claim was touched by Althuna Herself. When the dark curse befell the Elthannars, this elf was one of several who dodged it... at least initially. He was banished with Tarlisha all the same, though, and haunts the catacombs as a ghost - drenched in the bloodied sins of the Elthannar family. '
You say, ' A ghost in the catacombs..'
Archaeologist Kered says, 'If anyone can do it, I believe it is you, <Player Name>.'

You say, 'What do you think about seeking out some relics that belonged to Eldenal?'
Archaeologist Kered says, 'Hmm, that is not a bad idea indeed. It is unlikely he thought to bring anything of worth with him when they left the throne, so do not waste time looking in his mansion. Instead, return to his former seat of power and see what you can find. Return with something small first to see if it is worth spending time on.'

Archaeologist Kered says, 'Now this is quite interesting...'

Gather and give Major Ystharan Relic to Archaeologist Kered.
Archaeologist Kered says, 'I knew you'd come through for me, <Player Name>. Oh, what's this? This relic still has a good deal of power in it. Give me your Researcher's Amulet and I will try to enhance it.'
You gain 50000 experience!!
Give Researcher's Amulet to Archaeologist Kered.
Archaeologist Kered says, 'Oh yes, that was easier than I thought it would be. Here you are! Keep up the good work. And now we can progress to a dungeon I thought no one would be able to help study.'
You recieve Lorekeeper's Amulet from Archaeologist Kered.
You say, 'Where's that?'
Archaeologist Kered says, 'Emberflow. Have you ever been? No matter. It is home to many races and some of the most fearsome creatures in Dalaya. It is not a place I would ever wish to go myself, but you have proven yourself strong enough, in my eyes, to venture in. Stay near the entrance to begin and try to find me an artifact!'
