After the Come to Court quest speak with Tomlin in Cassardis, just outside the Pablos' inn or along the beach. His father, Ansell, was a gardener for the Duke in Gran Soren and has disappeared. Tomlin will hand over a Gardener's Permit as a quest item. Be sure to keep this item in inventory for the duration of this quest.

This quest can be combined with Arousing Suspicion. This is explained further in this walkthrough.

Before entering the Duke's Demesne in Gran Soren, be sure to carry the Gardener's Permit and 2 Skeleton Keys (although there is already a Skeleton Key in the downstairs chest near the jail cells and another in a breakable jar in Ansell's cell).

Inquire Around Gran Soren (optional)Edit

In order to find out where Tomlin's father is, speak with Ser Jakys in Gran Soren. He can usually be found in the Noble Quarter. He will tell you that the gardener is imprisoned.

Speaking with the citizens of Gran Soren is optional if the Arisen already knows where the jail cell is.

Seek out Tomlin's FatherEdit

Upon learning of Tomlin's father (Ansell's) location in the dungeon, it is time to free him. If combining this quest with Arousing Suspicion then please read that walkthrough instead of this one.

Ansell is in the castle dungeon in the cell opposite the secret exit (the last cell on the left). Do not be concerned with the guards or Feste (the court jester), as they will not react to the prison break.

Use a Skeleton Key to open the door and speak with him. He will reveal the true reason for his captivity. Ansell will not respond properly without the Gardener's Permit in hand.

Escort Ansell From the DungeonEdit

The cell opposite Ansell's contains the entrance to this passage. An audible wind will indicate the correct cell. Use a Skeleton Key to open the door and proceed left down into the sewers. Slay all the Rats, Spiders, and 3 Snakes to protect Ansell.

Reunite with the pawns and Tomlin in The Slums. The reunited father & son will express their gratitude before walking off to the exit in the Aqueduct. The quest will be completed and the rewards given when they both exit the city.

Quest SuccessfulEdit

Once completed, Ansell will become available as a participant in the Trial and Tribulations quest if the Arisen pursues a guilty verdict for Fournival.



  • ps329px-Icon ps3xbox36020px-Icon xbox360 After speaking to Ansell he doesn't move nor can he be spoken too.
    • This can easily be fixed by exiting the castle gate into Gran Soren and returning.
    • If the above method doesn't work, commit a crime, get caught by a guard who will put you in the dungeons again. Using a Skeleton Key to escape should trigger a conversation in which Ansell says that the player went far away, fixing the problem.
