Demons in the Desert (Side Quest)

Demons in the Desert (Side Quest)

A side quest in Faiyum

The quest giver wanders aimlessly about the roads here- just follow your marker until you catch up.

He'll tell a tale of demons, and a boy trapped in a tower. Use Senu to locate the lad, surrounded by hyenas.

Once you get close, he'll jump down to fight them. Help him exterminate the beasts.

Speak to him to learn of his determination to rescue his father from the bandits which took his whole village. Follow him on his way, mounting the conveniently placed pair of camels.

You'll ride through a sandstorm and to a boat. Hop aboard- he'll drive.

Your destination is the Desert Waterfalls Hideout.

Deboat on arrival, and talk to Rahotep. He will finally agree to stay behind while you essay a search-and-loot-and-rescue campaign.

The camp has a simple layout- one treasure in the command tent to the west, one is in a cave northwest.

This northwest section is exactly where you want to enter the camp, though you may want to snipe the tower guard first.

Drop down right in front of the cave entrance.

Loot the treasure from the red chest inside.

Keeping to the edge of camp, angle toward the command tent, and ice the captain.

Loot the last treasure, a carbon crystal, from the end of the table here.

Use the bushes around the edge of camp to stalk the commander.

If there's no one else nearby, just snipe him to get him out of the way.

This completes the location.

Kill any other nearby guards, especially those to the east, then drop down to the waterline to stage your rescue.

The (armed) farmers will immediately flee east. Escort them out of camp, helping them clear hostiles.

Outside of camp you'll meet up with Rahotep, and decide the storm the bandit headquarters, in the Larder Station Hideout to the south.

Not much room for stealth here- just ride or die.

Cut down all the bandits, including the captain. It can be hard to flank on horseback, so engage on foot with Overpower attacks, if his shield blocks get annoying.

The treasure is in a round hut at the very end of the camp.

Loot the red chest inside to complete the location.

With that taken care of, go rescue Rahotep's dad from the docks.

Carry him, past all his rescuers, to the other docks, outside camp.

Set him on the ground to begin the cutscene that ends the mission.
