He and his eclectic crew launch themselves directly into the search for Master PuPu’s missing companion—an endeavor which attracts the attention of old acquaintances both affable and aggravating…
  • Weapon Enhancement Quests – Manderville Weapons – Lord Godbert has been diligently deciphering his ancestor’s manual in a bid to recreate the magnificent Manderville weaponry. Though stymied by cryptic code for quite some time, the key to advancing the augmentation process is finally in his well-manicured hands!
