On this page of The Forgotten City guide, you will find descriptions of quests related to Ulpius. You will learn how to save him and what to do with the information he has gained. We described what you need to do to push the plot forward, get more tasks and make progress. However, you can stop here and ask around for as much information as you can.
In this part of the game you can get the Counsellor achievement.
You'll see Galerius after exiting the loop. This time introduce yourself to him, give him the Silphium Resin, and tell him to go see Lucretia. He won't resist and will go fulfill his task.
You have some time to save Ulpius. We've marked the place he plans to jump from on the screenshot above. You don't need to hurry too much, but don't bother anyone else on the way.
When you get to the top, you'll see Octavia cleaning up the writing on the floor. Ulpuis stands on the edge, over the cliff.
Immediately select the option "Actually, I really need to talk to Ulpius". Ulpius will tell you why he wants to kill himself, but this time you'll be able to talk some sense into him.
You stole the money. You have 2,500 denarius and saved Ulpius' live. All you have to do now is play the conversation right. Select the following options:
- "Is this what Sentilla would want?"
- "Actually, I do."
- "No. "You'd be free."
- "Of course."
That way, you will give him 2,000 denarius - the man survives and gives you another quest.
Searching for Sentilla
After saving Ulpius, you need to get some information out of him regarding Sentilla. The correct dialogue options are:
- "You could tell me about your relationship with Sentilla."
- "Any ideas about who might have taken her?"
Then accept the task by clicking "I'll get right on it." This will immediately mark the quest, allowing you to proceed immediately.
Remember not to jump off the cliff this time. Ulpius didn't jump, so there's no hole in the ground anymore. Trying to use the same way as before will only result in your death.
Reach the villa the normal way, through the door. Remember, Malleolus already gave you the keys so you shouldn't have any problems.
Once inside, head to the location shown on the screen above. There's a staircase that will take you to the first floor.
Once upstairs, keep walking along the red carpet until you hear a woman crying.
Enter the room where you'll find her. You don't even need to try talking to her, she'll be hostile towards you and won't give you any useful information anwyay.
Find Ulpius (his location should be indicated by a special quest marker). Once you find him, tell him you didn't find Sentilla. Promise him you'll keep looking.
