Welcome to Athens
Time to visit Attika! Head toward the new region, filled with side quests and additional activities. You have to reach Pnyx, where you will witness the speech delivered by Perikles and Kleon. After the cutscene, the quest ends and you receive +6400 XP. You start three new quests that can be completed in any order.
A Venomous Encounter
Go to the indicated house. It will turn out to be full of snakes - use your bow to eliminate the threat and free Metiochos Now go to the house of the attackers - there, you also have to kill the snakes. After you eliminate them, search the area. Examine vipers' corpses, the dead body hidden behind the tree, and the letter on the top floor of the building.
A group of hostiles will then show up. You have to force them to tell you the truth about the attacks. Next, you have to decide whether to kill them or not. Either way, you will receive the information on the location where you can find the person ordering the attacks. Go there and kill the man. Return to Metiochos and tell him about everything. This way, you receive +4900 XP.
Escape from Athens
Go to Phidias. In front of the door, you will meet a guard who does not want to let you in. You can attack him or pay 500 drachmas not to interrupt you breaking in. If you bribe him, he will appear later on and try to kill you.
Talk to Phidias and decide whether it is time to leave Athens. Go to the docks to the rendezvous point and talk to the man. If it is still daytime, wait until the evening and together go to the boat.
You have to reach the Seriphos island. On your way, enemy ships will attack you. We recommend you avoid them and do not bother to engage. Go directly to the island and leave the man there to receive 8250 XP.
Talk to Perikles's liaison. Then, go to Agora - you need to replace the votes with false ones. It is a very simple task - the building is poorly guarded and replacing the votes itself takes very short. Report to the liaison and tell him you took care of everything to complete this quest and earn 7500 XP.
Upon completing all quests, return to Perikles's house. After all cutscenes, you will start two new quests: Drink Up and Oil and Love.
You will find Sophokles in one of the rooms. He will ask you to take the wine and ply Euripides with it. Agree - talk to the woman next to you and take the wine. Next, go to the main hall and encourage your target to keep drinking wine. Return to Sophokles and tell him about the incident to complete this quest and earn 7500 XP.
Oil and Love
Go to one of the rooms to find Alkibiades who is in the middle of having sex and will ask you to bring him oil. You can find it in the room with wine / Sophokles. Return to the man with a drink - if you want, your character can start romancing with Alkibiades. Talk to him to finish this quest and earn 7500 XP.
Perikles's Symposium - continued
Talk to Socrates. After a while, Aspasia will show up. Talk to her and then go upstairs to talk to Perikles. Go back downstairs and leave the symposium to finish this quest.
At this point, you complete another chapter of the adventure - ahead of you is a new chapter, a much longer one that offers a sort of non-linearity in terms of selecting the order of completing consecutive tasks.
