Scarlett by Well Ladder inner city catacombs

Pick up a painting for the Hooded Wings.


Getting the QuestEdit

Scarlett should visit the Hooded Wings guildhall, go down to the basement catacombs, and ask Grimm for work. Grimm will give Scarlett this quest after she has completed The Merchant Vessel quest.

This quest is optional. Scarlett may elect to do it to increase her Experience and Reputation.


The QuestEdit

Scarlett is told to go to the Inner City to pick up a painting for Grimm. Grimm gives Scarlett a key to the house and instructions to use the Inner City Catacombs to reach it.



Scarlett must have joined the Hooded Wings guild, gained access to the Inner City, and completed The Merchant Vessel quest.


Fulfilling the QuestEdit

Quest Map Dubious Methods Inner City

Scarlett should go to the Inner City. Her goal is to enter a house and steal a painting, but to reach the door to the house, she must go through the Inner City Catacombs. There is only one entrance to the Inner City Catacombs, by swimming in a canal under a bridge not far from the Tavern. Scarlett it should enter the catacombs there. (Click on map to enlarge.)

Quest Map Dubious Methods catacombs

In the Inner City Catacombs (1), Scarlett needs only to swim up to the ramp and walk up to the platform and turn left, following the platform to the end. (Dealing with any Grippers she encounters along the way.) The platform ends (2) in a ladder climbing up through a well or sewer, and that leads back to an isolated landing in the Inner City.

On the isolated landing there is a door to the house. Scarlett can enter the house using the special key Grimm gave her. (Note that there is a living gargoyle statue over the door, but unless Scarlett comes here very late in the story when she has reached high Level, it will not come to life at this time.)

Inside the house, Scarlett will find the desired painting on the wall across from the door.

Dubious Methods Citizen

After Scarlett collects the painting, a Citizen (probably the owner), will confront her. She can either pay him for the painting if she is feeling Honorable, or kill him if she is feeling Villainous.

Scarlett should return to the Hooded Wings guildhall by retracing her steps (and strokes). See Grimm to deliver the painting, collect the reward and finish the quest.


Adds 30 points to Scarlett's Reputation and 400 to her Experience.
