Tamien, an ex-Red Rook bandit, claims he wants to save the town of Eagle's Brook. The Lion Guard, however, don't trust him. Tamien says the Bloodthorns are turning townsfolk into zombies. He wants the Vestige's help to prepare a spell to protect the villagers.
The Vestige cast Merien's White Mask, a spell to hide the villages from the Bloodthorn invaders. Now Merien wants the help from them to stop the Bloodthorn activity in Eagle's Brook.
The Red Rook Bandits have taken control of the town Crosswych. Some of the townsfolk are trying to organize a resistance, but the bandits are determined to use the town as a base.
The Red Rooks have taken over the Crosswych Mine, turning the miners into slaves. Further, anyone who resists them are sent into the mines as prisoners.
Tamien Sellan says the Crosswych resistance has gained enough momentum. It's time to deal with the Red Rooks' leader, Sternis Gelves himself. The Vestige needs to enter the mayor's house, find Gelves and kill him.

"I regret the day I ever involved myself with these Red Rook bastards. By the Eight, this ends here!"
I'm here to help the resistance. "We could use the help. These damned Red Rooks! They destroyed my town and now they're trying to take over Crosswych. I made a vow. I will have my revenge. I'm going to rally the people of Crosswych to take back their town."
"I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the people have begun to rally around the idea of resisting the Red Rooks. The bad news is the Red Rooks have taken notice."
The councilors support the resistance. "This is just the thing we need to inspire the people. Now the resistance can get to work on getting rid of the Red Rooks."

"Anyone who stands up to Sternis Gelves ends up in the Crosswych mines. He works his prisoners to death down there. We need to close the mines and take that resource away from the Red Rooks."
Tell me about the mines. "The Red Rooks took control of the mines when they arrived. They work the miners night and day. And they also use the mines as a prison for anyone who causes trouble. Councilor Lia, Smith Suriel, and Len the Innkeeper were all sent into the mines."
"I've heard your praises from a number of rescued miners. Well done."
I also killed Foreman Blaise. "Blaise? Dead? That's good news. I've sent some miners to Councilor Virgile to recover. As soon as they're able, they'll return to the mine and clear out the rest of the Red Rooks. Well done, my friend."

"It's time. The people of Crosswych have taken up arms and are ready to retake their town. But first, Sternis Gelves must die."
Where is Sternis Gelves? "He's taken over the mayor's house. Since the resistance started, he never leaves the place. You'll have to fight through his personal guards to reach him. Fortunately, you'll have some help, if you want."
After Sternis Gelves has been killed:
"Thanks to your efforts, order and peace are restored. Crosswych will be back to normal in no time."
Sternis Gelves is dead. "At last, Sternis Gelves has paid for his crimes against Crosswych, Eagle's Brook, and my family."
