Rescue the O'Gaffney law firm from the Circle of Thorns


You've got to rescue the O'Gaffney Law firm from the Circle of Thorns! Those mystics are over there right now, chanting up a storm. I think they're planning to sacrifice those lawyers. Please, help them!

You know as well as I that the Circle's rituals are often brutal. We can't let such things happen to our citizens.

It's strange that they targeted that law firm. You should try to find out why the Circle is there.

Non-aggression pact
This non-aggression pact bears the seal of the Nemesis Army, but it has not yet been signed by the Circle of Thorns. As a gesture of good faith, Nemesis offers to take out a Rikti sewer base that is uncomfortably close to a Circle of Thorns hideout.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Stop Nemesis raid on Rikti

You defeated the villains. After interrogating the Nemesis soldiers, you learn that one of their lieutenants has gone to a Circle of Thorns base to convince the mystics to sign the non-aggression pact.

If those villains had teamed up, it would have been trouble for sure. I'm glad you were there to put a stop to it. We may never know how many lives your actions have saved.
