To begin this quest, set off to Lighthouse Island, nestled within the mysterious Sundering Sea. (Keep in mind that you will need a boat to get there!) Once there, locate an NPC named Keeper’s Wife, who patiently awaits your arrival outside the lighthouse. As you engage in conversation, she will share her intriguing discovery of a bottle washed ashore containing a letter inside. The mysterious message “For Ruby in Timberain” is etched outside the bottle, piquing your curiosity. Keeper Wife and her husband are unable to leave Lighthouse Island to embark on this delivery quest; thus, she implores your assistance in delivering the letter to its intended recipient, Ruby in Timberain.

Keeper Wife entrusts you with the Bottle Mail – a task you graciously accept – urging you to venture forth to Timberain in the Leaflands. Your search for Ruby begins; she is seated upon a chair adjacent to the Timberain courthouse. Upon discovering her location, interact with her and pass along the treasured Bottle Mail. 

An overwhelming feeling of recognition consumes her as she identifies her son’s handwriting on the letter’s parchment. In this emotionally charged moment, a captivating cut scene unfurls before your eyes, displaying the heartfelt contents of Ruby’s son’s letter.
