Berlok's Books[edit | edit source]

  1. Go to Gnomeland Security Headquarters in Steamfont Mountains
  2. Talk to Inspector Berlok Beeglesnoop at ( -648, 175, 1079 ) Copy. He is quite insane, but constant reminders of his youth will get you through his quest dialogue. Answers to the dialogue are the following:
    1. What did you do in your youth?
    2. I wish I could be a great investigator like you were in your youth.
    3. When you were young you must have been a great writer.
    4. I think reading helps you stay young.
    5. When you were young, did you ever get lost?
    6. In your younger days, you must have taught the Gnomeland Security all you know.
    7. Were you this crazy when you were young or is this an old age thing?
    8. I am the general of Felwithe.
    9. When you were young, you must have seen some splendid shields.
    10. That accounts for two books. Where is the last?
