The quest begins with a vision:

"Your vision hazes and the world grows dim. Out of the gray, a woman's face appears. Medora!"

"Agent (Player name). Your efforts to free me have not been in vain. I have discovered a powder that will soothe the ghost of my beloved Lysandus. However, it is in the hands of Gortwog, Warlod of the Orcs, in his stell citidel of Orsinium. Go to him in Orsinium and see if there is anything that can be done to persuade him to give it to you. Bring the powder to me in Direnni Tower once you have it."

"The vision clears. Sometimes you wish sorceresses would just send letters like other folks do."

Proceed to Orsinium and speak to Gortwog, who will direct the Hero to a dungeon on the Isle of Balfiera. Once at the dungeon, search for the dust. The dust is wrapped in a parchment, which will read the following:

This parchment was used as a wrap for the packet of powder. Some of its message is now illegible:

"Lady Med...
...favor. They intend to slay him. I am sending ........ers to stop them. You must support me. If the empire finds that I have attacked royal advisors of Wayr......ven if they are assassins, my people will never win the same status and respect as the Khaji................ians. However, with your support I c............. a hero of the empire, and win respect for my people.

Return to Medora with the dust, who will need a month to prepare the dust for Lysandus, completing the quest.
