In Pursuit of the Past
- The Storyteller seeks pages covered in ancient Elven script. They will help to shed light on the long - forgotten past.
As you collect and return notes to the Storyteller, he will share the secrets of his past and how his ancient research is closely tied to the nature of the Worldwound.
Once you return 20 notes to the Storyteller, his story will reach a resolution and the quest is marked as completed. However, if you find all 21 Elven Notes, including the final note in Threshold (and return to the camp outside Threshold to give him the note before fighting Imezlen), the Storyteller will tell you a tale about Areelu Vorlesh and how she learned to open the Worldwound. He'll give you a Blank Page, which will lower the skill check requirements to decipher the Lexicon of Paradox, which is required for the secret Ending.
