Madeleine outside Pablos' Inn

Guard Duty becomes available after speaking to Madeleine at Pablos' Inn. She generally appears shortly after the quest Call of the Arisen has been completed at The Encampment.

Once this prerequisite has been met, return to Cassardis and enter Pablos' Inn and Madeleine will be there, loudly talking to herself. Speak to her and she will ask to be escorted to The Encampment.

Simply follow the road to The Encampment and protect her from the any Goblins in the area. She will occasionally stop to look at something but will eventually continue ahead. She may do this several times so try not get too far ahead of her.

After arriving at The Encampment, Madeleine will ask for 1,000 Gold to enable her to continue her 'business.' She claims to need it to be able to travel to the capital and promises to eventually repay it, in the form of a small discount at her shop.

Giving her the money will raise her Affinity level. Before leaving her, you can take a look at the goods she sells (see Madeleine's Shop for inventory).


  • Caution This quest must be completed before completing Off With Its Head or else it will fail.
  • If this quest is missed, Madeleine will still be found in Union Inn upon reaching Gran Soren.
  • Despite her safety concerns, Madeleine has a knack for wandering off. Heed her closely as you travel to the Encampment.
  • The journey will be a little safer during the day.
  • Madeleine can be picked up and carried to The Encampment, but this will negatively impact her Affinity.
  • The Arisen can choose to run as fast as possible into The Encampment and then immediately exit and run back towards Cassardis. Madeleine will be waiting along the path and will comment about abandoning her, but she'll rejoin the party.
  • It may be possible to prevent Madeleine from distraction by traveling along the shoreline instead of the path, however there may be more Goblins to deal with.
