Mission start: After finishing the Hungry Gods quest.
Description: As go back from the cave, you will meet a woman, who's asking the gods for help. You can pretend you're the god and offer help. Go to Sami, find the woman's house, examine the wagon and the basket with gifts - then place the money, and you will get +1300 XP.
A Ship Came Sailing
Mission start: Pronnoi Peninsula, near the gulf.
Description: You can find Davos, who will ask you to save his brother, Orneos. The man is held hostage in a cage in the bandits' camp nearby. Free him and escort him to Davos - this isn't easy; you will have to fight a lot.
The Fight with Talos
Mission start: During the Debt Collector mission.
Description: Talos will be on the fifth level of experience, and initially, the protagonist will be no match for him. Avoid confrontation. Finish a few missions and attack (stealth attacks are strongly suggested as they deal the most damage) once you're fully ready. You will get +1500 XP after defeating him.
In the Footsteps of Gods
Mission start: Talk to the priestess, near the town of Sami.
Description: You will see the priestess in front of the shrine; she will inform you of the disappearance of the spear. Agree to find it - near the place, to the north-west, you can find a niche in the wall. Use it to enter the cave - be careful though, since there are many enemies inside. Proceed downwards until you find the area with the chest. Open it to get the spear. Go back to the priestess and decide whether you want to give the spear to her for free, get some money in exchange, or keep the weapon to yourself. Reward: +1375 XP.
Mission start: After completing the Debt Collector mission, talk to Drucilla.
Description: Agree to help and go to the location of the ambush. You have to examine the wagon, the corpse, and the footprints. Next, use the eagle to locate the camp of the bandits - it's not far, to the north. The task is to kill the bandits. There's quite a lot of them, but you can stealth kill most of them. When they're dead, approach the chest and take the wood. Give the item back to the woman, and you will get 1100 XP.
The Blood Fever
Mission start: Kausos village, after freeing the hostages.
Description: Once you free the hostages, they will run and the enemies will attack you. Defeat them, and then meet the survivors near the village. You can claim the award, or be more altruistic and refuse to take any money. The mission will yield +900 XP.
Mission start: Information board near the town of Sami.
Description: The task is to get more wolf skins and then carry them to a merchant. The wolves are quite abundant and you will be able to quickly get enough skins. Reward: +1200 XP.
Shark the Vagrant
Mission start: Talk to the quest giver or find the necklace during exploration.
Description: This is a pretty difficult quest. You have to get to the indicated location - there, you can find the ruins. Dive, kill a few sharks (it's not so easy - if you have to, go back to the surface and replenish HP). Open the chests. The necklace can be found inside. Return it to the family. Reward: +1500 XP.
A Small Odyssey
