Kassandra came across a scroll in a warehouse in Aipeia.
Kassandra read the note in the warehouse.
- Note About a Prisoner:
Lieutenant, during one of our patrols we spotted bandits stationed near the mining locations by Messene. I believe helots are being taken. Should we do anything? It's not our fault if anything happens to the helots, right? I was told to do nothing unless directly ordered. I shall await your response.
- Kassandra: Helot prisoners. Amorges wouldn't like it if I freed them.
Kassandra travelled north to prisoner site near Messene.
- Kassandra: The prisoners mentioned in the letter. I should free them.
Kassandra overheard a man with tied hands crying for help.
- Aiantides: Help! Someone, help!
Kassandra approached the man and recognized him.
- Kassandra: Aiantides? Is that you?
- Aiantides: Yes! Yes, thank the gods! Wait! Kassandra? No! Why'd it have to be you again? Go away! Help! Someone else! Help! No! No, no, no. I owe you enough Kassandra. Why'd you have to do this again?
Kassandra freed Aiantides.
- Kassandra: Keep your voice down, the guards will you.
Her act was caught by the guards.
- Guard: Hey! You! Get away from the prisoners.
- Kassandra: Maláka.
Kassandra eliminated the guards and returned to Aiantides.
- Kassandra: Aiantides, my proud friend... What's happened to you this time?
- Aiantides: The gods are not fair to Aiantides. I spent my wealth on my gifts to you. I don't complain, that was fair. Then someone told me I could make a fortune in Messenia. But those malákes sold me for a fortune instead! I'm a slave here. And now you show up? How is that fair?
- Kassandra: This isn't my fault. It's your pride that did this.
- Aiantides: Yes, I, Aiantides, am proud! And I will never be indebted to anyone. But now you save me again? Why do you keep doing this to me?
- Kassandra: I could hardly leave you to rot in that cage, Aiantides.
- Kassandra: I could use you on my ship. Barnabas may hate me, but you'll be kept out of trouble, and your debt to me will be fulfilled.
- Aiantides: I, Aiantides, will never be indebted to anyone... Except a god. Who can resist the gods? I accept.
- Kassandra: I'll see you on my ship, mortal.
I, Aiantides the Proud, will pay the Messenger of Zeus's forgiveness forward... to others! But before I go, here, one last gift.
Aiantides handed over a note to Kassandra.
- Kassandra: Malaka... Another treasure hunt?
- Aiantides: The final one. I have found something that might be useful to you. I went to great lengths to get it. It was before I knew you were a god...
- Kassandra: All right. Thank you, Aiantides. Go away now. I command it.
Aiantides bowed and left. Kassandra read the letter.
- Directions to Aiantides' treasure:
Eagle Bearer! I wrote this just in case I become indebted to you, again! By the Gods, I hope not. If you are reading this, then... malaka! I, Aiantides the Proud, shall bestow another treasure upon you! Why are you always swooping in to be the hero? I've hidden my treasure in a den where tusks are plenty and snouts are aflaring! I believe the boars are nothing to you. Now go! I hope that this is the last time I will ever need to repay you!
Kassandra came across and freed Aiantides, leaving him in her debt once again. Kassandra was given the choice of employing Aiantides on her ship or letting him go. Letting him go grant Kassandra another map to Aiantides treasure in a wild boar den.
