Home to slaves and slave owners, these islands are home to a man trying to find out more about a group of bandits known as “The Dagger”. The truth won’t be an easy one to take and his magistrate owner knows this. This guide will go over all the side quests for the region and how to complete them.

Once a Slave
This is the only quest not associated with the slave Agapios. A Slave Owner wants you to find bandits that robbed him of his valuables, especially missed is a vase. He’ll want you to find it and directs you to his slave. Talk to him and he’ll ask you to blame him when you direct him. Head to the mine and find the vase. Return to the Slave owner and make your decision of who to blame.
The Taxman Cometh
Rhoeo wants you to find her husband and suspects “The Dagger” is behind his disappearance. Follow the road to the east until you reach the wreckage of a caravan. Talk to the survivor to learn of his master’s kidnapping. They apparently took him to the nearby fort, so head there and rescue him.
Follow him down the hole and talk to him to learn more about his wife. He’ll tell you about a cave near where the cart crashed that houses a stash he left. It’s close to Drifi Peak, so fast travel there to save time. The treasure you seek is in the watery bit of the cave near the reeds.
Death and Taxes
Agapios is arguing with a guard about access to a warehouse. He apparently has a problem with The Dagger and will ask you to find records about them inside. The warehouse is the dock, so sneak around and steal the records. One is by the end of the pier, while the others are just inside the main building. Steal them and return to Agapios to learn more about them.
Unlocked after completing the two missions above, you’ll find Agapios lokoing at the records. Turns out he thinks his brother is the leader of the Dagger. This unlocks three support quests and upon completing all three you can return to Agapios to tell him what you learned.
Blood and Water
Head to the Eritrea Ruins to meet the contact. She’ll ask if you were followed before asking you to find the sunken ship nearby and loot the chests within. There are a few sharks underwater, so sneak around or kill them. Once you have the contents, go back to the woman to find her being tortured by “Enforcers”. Kill them and she’ll reveal that this is a sacrificial knife.
Dagger to the Heart
Head to the theatre and talk to the owner who is having an argument. He’ll ask you to kill some people who owe him money, while his companion will ask you to talk to them instead. Deal with the associate in the way you want and return to the couple. Upon returning to them, they’ll be attacked by thugs, so make your choices before dealing with them.
Wasn’t Born the Kingfisher
Had to Chalkis farm and you’ll be attacked by thugs. Talk to the farmer there and he’ll reveal the name of the leader of The Dagger. You can choose whether you are sympathetic or scold him, but it will have very little bearing on the subsequent missions.
The Kingfisher and the Robin
The local magistrate wants your help to finally deal with The Dagger by going to the island of Skyros to the east. Meet them there on the beach and you’ll see a battle underway. Once they’re all dead, talk to the Magistrate. Climb to the Temple of Achilles to find Agapios and Neritos in a heated argument. You’ll be given the choice of whether you think he can save his brother. If you say he can’t, you’ll be forced to kill all the thugs around. Do so and talk to Agapios to see his magistrate free him.
