Crendal outside the Draggin Tale

Crendal is a Breton drunk who hangs around the Draggin Tale Inn. He is not a reliable source of information, but can lead you to a map piece he stole from Trithik. This is part of a map that reveals the location of the Flask of Lillandril.

If you ask Dreekius of anyone in particular looking for the flask, he informs you that Crendal was bragging about having a piece of the map. Crendal claims the barkeep is lying, but Cyrus easily tricks him into confirming he does have the piece. According to Crendal, he passed out one night on Trithik's boat and woke up early; looking for a drink, he found the map piece under the old sailor's cot.

You can trick Crendal into checking his hiding spot using Trithik's description of the map piece. After this, he refuses to talk to you and waddles over to his hiding spot in the park. The leather pouch containing the treasure is buried next to the tree in the southwest corner, but will not appear until he goes to check it. Once he returns to his usual roaming area, you can speak with him again.

No sir. I kicked his fat butt. Not throwing me in his catacombs!


(Unlocked by "Richton")

"You're scared of the Catacombs, eh?"

"Ever heard of the Flask of Lillandril? You look like a treasure hunter."
"Ah, the Flask of Lillandril! Everything good in life comes in a decanter."

Flask MapEdit

(Unlocked by Dreekius: "Flask of Lillandril")

  Crendal says he has a piece of the map to the Flask of Lillandril.
"Dreekius tells me you've found yourself part of the Flask of Lillandril map."
"Oh, he did, did he? Uuhhh..well...uh...he's lying! Yup, that lizard's lying!"
"Of course, he's lying. You're not bright enough to have gotten a piece of the map."
"What? I'm brighter than you, Redguard! I do have a piece of the map. Hah! How's that! You didn't think I (hick) did!"

Have Map PieceEdit

(Unlocked by "Flask Map")

  Crendal says he got a piece of a map to the Flask of Lillandril by stealing it. He says he found it under a cot on Trithik's boat.
"That's impressive Crendal. How could I have doubted you? Tell'd you get it?"
"Shh. Hick. You'll like this, question boy. I passed out one night on old Trithik's boat, while he was sleeping. Woke up early, lookin for a drink...
"And what do I find under his cot...a piece of the map! Haaa. Uhh. Shhh. He probably doesn't even know it's gone."

Trade for MapEdit

(Unlocked by "Have Map Piece")

  Crendal says he has hidden his piece of the map to the Flask of Lillandril where others can't find it.
"I'll gladly take that map piece off your hands if you're not using it. Perhaps a trade?"
"Pah! You have nothing I want, Redguard! Plus I don't even have it on me, I've hidden it away where them sissies can't find it."

Trick CrendalEdit

(Unlocked by "Trade for Map" after asking Trithik: "Crendal" or "Crendal Thief")

"I have some info that may concern you Crendal. I heard some boys talking that they had found your hidden map piece."
"That's impossible. Pah. Hick! They just talking, jealous of Crendal they are. They couldn't know where it is!"
Give Map Details
"I'm not so sure of that. I overheard them say it had two numbers on it, an X, and long tree. Didn't mean much to me, but I'd check your hiding spot if I were you."
"What! What! I mean..what. Ummmm. Damn them. Uhh. Another lie. Now go away Cyrus."


"I've had enough."

Unused DialogueEdit

Due to an oversight in dialogue scripting, Crendal will not say the following line while going to check his hiding spot:

"Hey! You! Go on! Scram!"

Another oversight in the scripting prevents him from idly saying this line:

">Uuuuuurrp!< Ooogh!"

He had a second line for the "Trade for Map" topic, revealing grand plans for the future:

"And when I do use it to find the flask, Richton and those League rats will be bowing to me, and that lizard is going the way of the Prince."
