Flynn Fairchild: Ugh. My head. My HEART. Feels like a good hangover and a bad breakup put together. On the bright side, I think I know where we are. And where that ship was headed. Freehold. It’s a… free town. For, uh… free folk. The only rule is that there are no rules. Lotta guys with peg legs and eye patches and exotic pets. Catch my drift? There’s a trail through the hills that’ll take us there. Pretty sure I remember the way… Let’s get moving. Gotta walk off that damn siren’s witchery.


Escort Flynn to Freehold.



TIP: Follow Flynn.

Flynn Fairchild: Ugh, still a bit foggy. Just need a little drink to clear my head.

Flynn Fairchild: (hic) Now, which way was it… left?

Flynn Fairchild: No, no. It was DEFINITELY right.

Flynn Fairchild: Watch yourself. Some nasty critters out here.

NOTE: Flynn becomes drunk, and wanders off in the wrong direction. Follow him, and kill anything that aggros or that spawns to attack your escort path.


Flynn Fairchild: Whew, what a hike. Need another little sip…

Flynn Fairchild: You all done with your side job? Can we get a little (hic) professionalism here?

Flynn Fairchild: Ahh. We’re getting close. I can feel it.


Flynn Fairchild: (hic) Hey, lizard.

NOTE: Flynn is super drunk now, and he goes around in circles. Eventually, he finds his way toward Freehold.

Flynn Fairchild: (hic) Over here! Hmm… this looks familiar. We must be (hic) going the right way.

Flynn Fairchild: Toxic stingers? I’m sure those serve a totally legitimate purpose.

Flynn Fairchild: Hmm. We went right last time… so it MUST be left! Think my head’s finally clearing up.

Flynn Fairchild: Here we are. Freehold. This is a rough town. Just (hic) let me do the talkin’.



Flynn Fairchild: Told you I knew how to find it!
