Once you have progressed the Story to the mission The Scarab’s Sting, you will meet the brewer Harkhuf, who is part of the local resistance. He has an Informant Table in a back room where you can pick up four quests, including this one.
Harkhuf misses Jeska, a friend of his and fellow helper in the local resistance. He heard that she was imprisoned and fears that she might be already dead. Harkhuf sends us to the fisher Amosis who might clear up a few things for us. Use Senu to find her and start the conversation once you’ve reached her. Amosis has good news – Jeska is alive and has escaped. She is currently on a boat and wants to deliver supplies.
After this conversation, we can already use Senu again, because Jeska is actually very close by. Our next objective is to talk to her, so we jump on the nearby boat and head over to the small island that she’s currently on. Once we get closer we’ll see that she ran into trouble in the form of a hippo-attack. Hurry over there and teach the hungry hippos a lesson. Jeska actually fights along with you and can be spoken to when the danger is eliminated.
Jeska agrees to see Harkhuf again but wants us to help her deliver the supplies to her village before she does so. We’re allowed to sit on her boat while she navigates to our first step of our destination. The second step requires us to follow her on foot. Sadly, her village was burnt down to the ground and is now crawling with eight soldiers. They can be stealthed quite easily because they are spread over the whole village.
After justice has been served, Jeska finds a lone survivor and asks us to carry him to a farm nearby. Pick up the poor fellow, place him on the back of a horse and ride into safety. Upon arrival, the final cutscene of this mission will play and you’ll be awarded 2.000 XP.
