Back to Main Quest
Callisto informs you that now you need to place explosives, in such a way that the explosion takes place as you want it to. It is a complicated procedure and you cannot risk failure, that is why you need to find someone experienced enough. Luckily, Callisto knows of a man in the Southrealm who is a hermit and does not support the Temple. Your task is to persuade this hermit, Gabor Gaboff, to support you and give you the necessary help. In the meantime, Callisto and Kim will be devising a plan on how to distract prying eyes from the statue, so that the explosives can be placed successfully. Callisto will also mark Gabor's exact location on your map.
Destination: Gabor's HouseEdit
Check your map, the map marker indicates the exact location of the house. The house is located in the western part of the Southrealm Desert. You can take any of the main roads that lead there. You can notice Gabor's House by a lot of barrels placed nearby. Enter the house.
Find the CellarEdit
As soon as you enter the house, your quest log will update with information that the hermits dwelling appears to be abandoned and messy. However, the door was open, so Gabor must be here, maybe in the cellar. Examine the room and you will certainly find the cellar entrance. You will hear a huge explosion and somebody's annoyed voice which portends trouble.
Move the Barrels to SafetyEdit
- Gabor's instructions
While entering the cellar you will hear Gabor's cry for help, as due to the unfortunate explosion a fire has started spreading uncontrollably. He instructs you that the barrels must be taken to a safe place, as they are filled with gunpowder. You do not have much time as the fire is spreading fast. As soon as the fire touches the barrels, the quest will be failed.
- Locate the Safe Area
The safe area is the place of the cellar which is carved into stone. The fire will not reach this place. See the slideshow for the picture of the safe area. This is the place where you will have to throw/place barrels.
- Locate the Barrels
First of all, you need to know which barrels have to be relocated. You need to move ALL the barrels which are marked with red 'paint'. See the slideshow for more details. The barrels should be in three places and one barrel in the middle of the room.
- Move the Barrels to Safety
There are probably plenty of ways to achieve the task, but this one seems the easiest:
- Move the barrels that are CLOSEST to the fire to the centre of the room (the lowered part)
- Move/Drag the other barrels that are nearby to this place.
- Move/Drag the barrels upwards into the safe area (when you have thrown the first barrel into this safe place, the quest will update with info that what you are doing is right).
-Move/Drag the remaining barrels to the safe area.
If you have managed to secure all barrels, Gabor will congratulate you on achieving your task and state that now you have to release him.
- Find a Pole
Due to the uncontrollable explosion Gabor has been trapped in the cellar and unable to escape. In order to save him you need something to break the wooden planks behind which he is stuck. You will find a pole (Loose Iron Rod) in the safe area.
- Save Gabor
You will find Gabor in front of the safe area, behind the wooden structure. By examining the structure you should find Beam (check the slideshow). Use it and Gabor will be safe. Follow Gabor who starts to escape from the cellar into safety. Leave through the door to the Great Desert.
Gabor will be delighted that you have managed to save him. It is not the first time his storage has been on fire, but never before has it been that dangerous and close to tragedy. He is willing to reward you for your timely coming, so inform him that you find his skills useful. He seems surprised but eager to join you and your cause. That is, as soon he clears up the mess in his house.
Destination: House at the HarbourEdit
- on foot
- using Teleport: Ostian spell
- Calling your horse
As soon as you enter the house, you will notice Callisto and Kim involved in a fierce quarrel over Callisto's method and plans. As a consequence, Callisto will feel offended and leave you and Kim to your own devices.
- Gabor's house is an excellent place to collect some equipment necessary to develop Alchemy, in case you don't have the apparatuses yet. Gabor's room is full of these apparatuses, even one Expert Alembic.
- Be careful not to put your barrels into the corner in the centre of the room (the place where you have to move barrels upwards) as it is quite difficult and a bit time-consuming to drag them from the corner.
- You can DRAG the barrels (Z) or MOVE the barrels (by simply walking and they will move in the direction that you are pushing them).
The use of the console is same like in Oblivion. Description how to use console commands can be found here
|The Professional MQ26|
|Stage||End Q||Journal Entry|
|6||I have to persuade a man named Gabor, a blaster, to help us. He lives in the desert, far from any civilization. Callisto told me to be careful. Allegedly, this Gabor is a bit crazy.|
|10||I entered the blaster's house, but it appears to be as abandoned as it is dirty. Anyway, the door wasn't locked, so he must be here - perhaps there is a cellar somewhere.|
|11||I heard a huge explosion beneath me. This smells like trouble ...|
|15||I arrived just in time: The blaster has set his storage room on fire. I need to move all the explosive barrels in here to a safe place. The fire won't reach the part of the storage that is carved in stone - this is where I have to put the barrels. I should take care of the barrels in the back part of the storage first.|
|20||All the barrels are safe. Now I have to free the blaster. I'll need something that I can use as leverage in order to break the wooden planks.|
|35||I found an iron rod.|
|40||I was able to free Gabor using the iron rod.|
|55||Gabor agreed to help us. I must report to Kim and Callisto immediately.|
|60||End||When I entered our house, I walked into the midst of a heated argument between Kim and Callisto. Callisto, in Kim's opinion, is too authoritative and thoughtless. Offended, Callisto left the house.|
