You'll receive this quest from Nadia in
Nadia will tell you that her husband Ben died of the Rot while mining tenebrium, but that Lawrence, the local Mining Guild Representative, denies that there's any relationship between the two. Nadia will then ask you to look into the matter and see if there's any proof that Lawrence has been lying to the miners to improve his finances at the expense of their lives.
You can receive the evidence you need during the quest
The Troll's Bounty
. If you give the
to Brandon at the end of that quest, then he'll reward you with a
Mining Office's Letter
, which will explicitly state that Lawrence knew the dangers of mining tenebrium and sent the miners out to collect it anyway. Receiving this letter will earn you 3600 xp.
Note: If you want to, before continuing the quest, you can blackmail Lawrence with the letter. This conversation will give you a chance to become more Materialistic (loremaster +1) or Spiritual (immunity to fear). If you take money from Lawrence, then you'll gain 1000 gp, 4500 xp, and Lawrence will like you better. If you don't take any money, then you'll gain 4500 xp, and Lawrence will like you less.
When you return to Nadia, you'll have to decide if you want to tell her about the letter. This will give you a chance to become more Compassionate (critical chance +3%) or Heartless (hit chance +20% when backstabbing). If you keep the letter to yourself, then you'll earn 3600 xp, and that's how the quest will end.
If you show the letter to Nadia, then she'll immediately run over to Lawrence's office (#2) to confront him. When you follow her there, you'll witness Lawrence trying to bribe her. Nadia will then ask you what she should do. This will give you a choice between becoming more Pragmatic (crafting +1) or Romantic (lucky charm +1). If you encourage Nadia to take the money, then she'll do so, and you'll earn 3600 xp for completing the quest.
However, if you tell Nadia that she shouldn't let Lawrence off the hook, then she'll run outside and start riling up the miners. Lawrence, meanwhile, will run outside and try to calm them down, and when he sees you, he'll appeal to you for help. This will give you a chance to become more Forgiving (immunity to cursed) or Vindictive (hit chance +20% for attacks of opportunity). If you let the miners have their way with Lawrence, then they'll kill him. If you save Lawrence, then he'll run off and you'll never see him again. Either way, you'll earn 9000 xp.
Another bonus for completing the quest is that everything on display in Nadia's shop will turn from "red" to "white," meaning you'll be able to take whatever you want without being called a thief. So feel free to take advantage. If Lawrence is out of the way, then you'll be able to rob his office safely as well.
