The quest begins once you arrive to Valley of Dead Heroes. Talk to Alighern to learn more about his past adventures. He'll also ask the party to stop by the monument in the village. Visit the location and interact with the object. You'll learn more details connected to the story of your companion.
The story continues in the Bloom while visiting Chiurgeon Slump. You'll encounter Orth Faung, a person that will recognize Aligern and tell you more about his tattoos. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to complete his study, as Murdens had stolen a special frame that was used for his research. Travel to The Old Slave Block to retrieve the stolen item.
Your job will be to break into Murden treasure trove (M17.8). Once you'll unlock the door, you'll encounter a frightened man - allow him to pass and enter the room. The party has to take care of three weak beasts - defeat them to unlock access to the next chamber. There are numerous items inside, including the sought frame. Return to Chiurgeon Slump and return the item to receive 350 Shins. A short cut-scene will reveal the whole truth about Aligern's tattoos. Moreover, you'll receive 40 Experience Points and enable Alighern to have a positive outcome of his epilogue that will appear at the end of the story.
