 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
Normally I would not give work to someone not a member of (Temple). However, we are short handed right now. A brazen thief stole a (religious item) from the temple. A priest got a good look at the criminal. It was a common street thief, a (thief's description) named (thief's name) who was in the temple on that day, pretending to worship. Track down this thief and return our stolen (religious item), and I will speak well of you in the future.
 Quest Acceptance
Questgiver goes on:
You need to get it back within (time limit) days. By then our knightly order will be able to dispatch a search party and you will have lost your chance.
 Quest Decline
I give you a chance and you spit in my face. Don't come looking to me for favors.
 Quest Object
Ask around in the current town until someone can tell you in which town you can find the thief. Be aware, you can get true or false information. If a person says
A (thief's description) Sure, I know (him/her). Lives in (false town).
this will be a false set of directions. All other directions you get are correct. Travel to the town where the thief can be found. Ask around in this town again until you know the thief's residence. Enter the house (the entrance door might be locked) and talk to the thief. He/she will say
(exclamation)! The temple hired a bounty hunter just to get back their worthless (religious item)? (exclamation), it sure ain't worth dying over. Here, take it. Now, we'll see if you think it's worth dying over... Help!! This (player's race) is making off with our loot!
and disappears. Follow suit, because a burglar and a rogue may show up to get the item back from you. If they are in your way, kill them. Return to the questgiver and hand over the religious item to complete the quest.
 Quest End
When the religious item is back in the questgiver's possession he/she will say:
All praises to you, (player's name). The (religious item) has been restored to the temple. You have earned the favor of (Temple's deity).
 Reputation Gain/Loss
A successfully completed quest results in a reputation gain according to the table below.
|Deity of the Temple||+5|
|Temple and its associated factions||+2|
A failed quest results in a reputation loss according to the table below.
|Deity of the Temple||-2|
|Temple and its associated factions||-1|
- 2x One Burglar every fifty in-game minutes (2% chance) after getting the item back
- 2x One Rogue every fifty in-game minutes (3% chance) after getting the item back
- In case you keep the item, it will remain in your inventory and won't vanish once the quest is over, as it is usual the case for quest items.
