The Lost Brother is a quest in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

There are two types of people in this world. There's the type of person who, upon hearing of hungry monsters roaming the ruins of a lost civilization, immediately picks up their backpack and makes their way there. Then there's the other type – people who hear the same thing and get a chill down their spine, pour themselves a cup of cocoa and snuggle down by the fireplace. The noble house of Hanvaki mainly consists of the second type, but there are the occasional daredevils among them, eager to leave the mundane life behind, to go out in search of adventure.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • At the start of chapter 4, you'll get a message that the people of Varnhold have vanished. Now you'll be able to explore their lands without being "escorted"
  • Make your way toward Varnhold. Then go north from Varnhold, to Shallow Gulch
  • Once there, discover the remains of Edrist's brother and the letter to him. Keep the letter
  • Return to your capitol and visit the tavern. There you'll find Edrist Hanvaki.
  • Speak to him (with the letter in your inventory) and inform him of his brother's demise.
  • Ask him about his great-grandfather. He will now inform you that he also wishes you to discover the fate of his great-grandfather.
  • You can only enter the next area - Sepulcher of Forgotten Heroes - during a future main quest - The Lost Relic. So wait until you begin that quest to do the next part of this one.
  • Inside the cyclops tomb you will find another letter among undead adventurers.
  • Bring the letter you find in the Sepulcher of Forgotten Heroes to Edrist Hanvaki in your capital tavern to end the quest.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

Those who go looking for adventure will, in the end, find it – but many are unhappy that they did. Alas, too many journeys in search of fame and fortune end this way – an unmarked death in a place far from home. Remember this, dear reader: always evaluate your abilities critically and honestly. If you yearn for adventure, there's nothing wrong with enjoying it by reading a good book. – And you need not even put down that nice mug of cocoa!
