After bringing the Somphos' nuclei to One Whose Words Happen to Rhyme He will ask you for assistance with another matter.

The Conversation:
After giving him the three Somphos nuclei....
One Who Asks The Unasked: Listen my friend, and listen well: These nuclei are telling us about an important part of our past. They show just how much impact the cataclysm had on the beings living here.

The nuclei held information regarding growth and reproduction, but during the cataclysm the energy burst was so great that it literally burnt the very souls of the Xan into everything, and even today you find nuclei containing parts of the Xan. This process destroyed some of the balance in the nuclei and for some time after the cataclysm the unstable nuclei emitted energy and particles to regain balance. We believe some of the original structures were broken due to this, and the creatures here changed forever.

You: What use has this information to you?
One Who Asks The Unasked: We research the possible effects your presence has on our environment, and one thing that particularly worries us is the impact of the changes done by the Jobe researchers.

The scientists are playing experts in an area where their knowledge is very limited.
We fear that they will only end up copying the mistakes of the Xan, and we all know so well what troubles came from those experiments!
I'm afraid I can't give you more details at this point.

You: What changes have the researchers done?
One Who Asks The Unasked: Well, just take this example: They created the Shades specifically to use the essences of the creatures in these lands. To be able to get the essences, many innocent creatures had to be sacrificed as they can only take an essence from a dead body. This technology is new to your kind, but it is something the Xan experimented with for eons, and so we assume there are issues not yet discovered by your scientists, and that they are far too quick to call it a success. But now I need to take a look at the nuclei you brought me, and I was wondering while I was doing that, if you could do me a favor and find one of our lost stories. I believe it is known to at least some of Anansi's followers. You should be able to snitch it from one of them! Will you do this for me?
You: I will help you!
One Who Asks The Unasked: Ok, I have heard from a quite reliable source that these followers keep the information they have to themselves, but that one of the easier one to get talking is the Anansi Gopher.
You: Goodbye

Mission: Lost stories[]
  • Description:
Lost stories

According to One Who Asks The Unasked, the Anansi followers keep one of the Yuttos' lost stories. He believed the chance of success was greater if you confronted the Anansi Gopher.

Bring the story to One Who Asks The Unasked

Mission Details[]


The Anansi Gopher is a small spider that spawns on the ramp to Misty Marshes at 860 x 720 (see map). If you don't have the mission, he won't do anything (and you can't attack or kill him as you run up the ramp, even if you wanted to)... but now that you do have the mission, you can right click him and have a chat.

Anansi Gopher: For many years, the Xan thought they were the only intelligent creatures in this world. This was their playground, and they thought they could set up the rules and that nature would have to obey. Anansi gave them the old stories, hoping they would learn from them. They mocked his knowledge and laughed at his experience thinking they would show him how they didn't need it. It is not so funny anymore, is it?

Depending on what you say next, he will either give File:262287::35px.png The Tale Of The Stubborn Yuttos to you, or he'll attack you and you'll have to loot it from his corpse. Return it to One Who Asks the Unasked for your reward.
