Bury the Past is a quest in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Elina the innkeeper brought bad news. Ekun and Ntavi spent the last few days together, ordering one bottle after the other. Ekun became gloomier by the day, until he finally left the inn with Ntavi and vanished! Judging by the fact they had their weapons with them, wherever they are headed, it can't be anywhere good...

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Find Ekun[edit | edit source]

  • Elina suspects Ekun and Ntavi went hunting: it is said there are giants near the bridge over the Gudrin River. We should start there.

Go to the Bridge over the Gudrin River (+675 xp, when you arrive at the place). You can find Ekundayo and Ntavi to the west right before the bridge.

Help Ekun and Ntavi fight the giants[edit | edit source]

  • We followed the giants' trail and found Ekun and Ntavi in 'good' company! We were right on time...

After the fight, Elina comes running to you, you gain 675 xp, and the conversation begins.

IMPORTANT!!!: To get the best ending for Ekundayo, do not support him in his searching for revenge - choose "Don't let revenge drive you mad, Ekun...", what displeases Ntavi to immediate leaving and Ekundayo tells you to go the place, where you first met him (Ruined Watchtower). This immediately leads to "Conduct the Ritual" part of the quest.

Otherwise, choose whatever you want. He is obviously reluctant to killing more monsters (Probably depends on whether you supported Ekundayo's and Elina's getting along during A Feast of Feasts, or not). If you apply some pressure on Ekun, he just leaves, and the quest fails.

Kill the giants' leader[edit | edit source]

  • The baron(ess) decided to help Ekun handle the giants. Such an act might not bring back Ekun's family, but it may lift the burden from his soul!

Conduct the ritual[edit | edit source]

  • Ekun wants to honor the memory of his family, and the baron(ess) decided to support him by participating in the ritual.

Go to the Ruined Watchtower and atop the hill to the northeast. Buff the party before the conversation with Ekun, as the ritual gonna be impolitely disturbed by Ntavi and her "friends" and no matter what - you WILL fight. Enemy will attack from the south and east, so, after you gain control - move your tanks in advance. The key moment is keeping Ekundayo alive, so kill everyone with ranged attack first (especially *that* Calistrian Archer), as Ekun is their priority. Except that, the fight is not difficult at all.

+810 xp for talking to Ekundayo after the fight.

Talk to Ekun[edit | edit source]

  • Ekun asked the baron(ess) to meet him in the capital to discuss what happened. The baron(ess) should visit him.

About 6 days later you recieve a reminder to talk to Ekundayo in the Capital. He thanks you and tells, that he made up his mind. You get 2700 xp and finish the quest.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

For better or worse, the baron(ess) found Ekun and Ntavi. The page has been turned, another adventure completed... and whether the grim ranger found what he was looking for is for him to decide.
