Bones of the Beast is a quest in Bastard's Wound.
Jaspos needs the bones of Reef-Talon to sustainably provide water for the Wound. He believes that due to her magical abilities, her bones would allow him to filter water for years instead of mere weeks. He has asked you to locate her retreat deep within the Oldwalls and return with her bones.
- This is the Jaspos-aligned quest, available after completing Knapping on the Job. Consult History of the Oldwalls: Part I for the precise methods of reaching Reef-Talon.
- Where the path diverges is when you encounter Lexeme, who will sic the Lullaby on you. After you defeat it, talk to her again, then meet Reef-Talon. At this point, you have several options: Kill her to make her a source of material, subdue her to make her available for farming water purification material, or encourage her to harness her gift.
