You first get control of your character after the opening video. Your character is outside the room where the other Seraphim has just died. Cross the bridge and you find yourself in a plaza with a fountain in the center, a chapel on one side and a sleeping room on the other side. The gate leading out is directly across from you.
There are two Inquisition Guards waiting for you right outside the gate. Talk to them to learn they are responsible for the other Seraphim's death. Take them out and proceed down the path toward the South Brigand Camp, and from there north and east along the path until you reach Sloeford.
Look! The old crow got herself some reinforcements! She obviously doesn't dare to leave her hole by herself anymore.
That probably means our poison is working!
Proceed into the town center where you will receive a message to talk to the village elder. This message will appear as you approach the fountain.
I should speak to the village elder.
Your gold arrow will point in the direction you need to go to talk to him. At this point you have completed the introductory quest. When you talk to the village elder you will get the next quest in the Light Campaign, Levied Tax.
- Tip: Talk to the guard with a question mark over his head at the on your way to into that camp. You will get the Hunting Highwaymen quest which is the first in a three quest chain that you can complete in Sloeford.
- This camp is actually a logging camp according to the sign. On the map and in the log it is referred to as Brigand Camp.
- Note: Despite what the quest and logbook say, the next part of this chain begins in Sloeford, not Thylysium.
