1 - Warleader Darzir

When you first enter the village, you'll encounter Warleader Darzir here. Defeating him will cause any remaining ogres in the village to flee. Darzir will drop a Ring of Changing Heart when he dies.

2 - Keydy's House

At the end of the ogre assault, this house will be on fire, and a villager will ask you to rescue Keydy and the guard Lurgolder, who are trapped inside. This is a timed event. If you take too long to deal with it, then the house will burn down, and both people will die.

When you enter the house, you'll need:
  • Survival 5, Constitution 15 (to avoid smoke inhalation), or Constitution 12 (to only breathe in a little smoke)
  • Perception 14 (to notice a weak beam)
  • Dexterity 10 (to avoid the beam), Might 13 (to prop up the beam), or Might 10 (to push the beam off you if you failed to notice it)
When you reach the two victims, you'll need different things to save them:
  • For Keydy, you'll need to move a beam from on top of her. This will require a Prybar or Might 10. With the beam out of the way, you might notice the ring Frigid Claim on Keydy's finger (we've only noticed it with our main character and Aloth, but there might be others). If you notice it then you'll be able to steal it. Finally, to get Keydy out of the house, you'll have to carry her on your shoulders.

  • For Lurgolder, you'll have to deal with the fire surrounding him. This will require the level 2 chanter phrase Rime and Frost Followed the Footfalls of Karth, the level 1 druid spell Winter Wind (including wearing the shield Scath Gwannek), or the level 1 wizard spell Chill Fog. If you're carrying Keydy, then along with the spell you'll need Resolve 15. With the fire gone, Lurgolder will be able to flee on his own.
Finally, to escape the house, you'll need:
  • Dexterity 10 (to avoid the weak beam, if you didn't use Might to prop it up)
  • Constitution 12 (to avoid smoke inhalation)
  • Athletics 2 (to avoid debris on the ground)
If you breathe too much smoke, then you'll collapse, but somebody from your party will carry you out of the house. So you'll survive, but you'll at least fail to rescue Keydy if not Lurgolder. You can use any of your characters for the rescue operation, so choose the one who meets the most requirements.

Note: Aloth is a pretty good choice for the rescue, assuming he has the Chill Fog spell. You'll just need to give him +1 Might (for the beams) and +2 Constitution (so he only breathes in a little bit of smoke).

If you save one of the two victims, then you'll earn a "slight" reputation bonus with Stalwart Village. If you rescue them both, then you'll earn a "minor" bonus. But regardless of how well you do, one of the villagers will toss you 10 cp so you can get a drink at the Gref's Rest (#8).

If Lurgolder survives, then you'll later see him at the fishery (#14), and he'll play a small role in the task The Fisherman's Penance. If Keydy survives, then you'll later see her at the Gref's Rest (#8), and she'll play a small role in the quest A Lovely Drop. Neither one will give you a tangible reward.
