Did you find Norgannon's shell?


That's it! That's the first half of Norgannon's keystone. Well done, <name>. I've had Archaeologist Andorin on the lookouts for clues to the shell's whereabouts for a long time. He's never going to believe me when I tell him it was an intrepid <race> who found it instead.


Use the charged disk to summon the archivist, who will arrive and scan you to check your identity.

Archivist Mechaton says: Use of the Inventor's Disk detected. Emergency protocol gamma activated.
Archivist Mechaton says: Verifying status of Norgannon's shell.
Archivist Mechaton says: Norgannon's shell accounted for and secure. It will be available for transfer once user's identity has been verified.
Archivist Mechaton says: Standby to verify identity as Keeper Mimir.
Mechaton stuns you as he scans your identity.
Archivist Mechaton says: Identity verification failed. User is not Keeper Mimir.
Archivist Mechaton says: The Inventor's Disk has fallen into the hands of an unauthorized user. Activating defense protocol.
Archivist Mechaton says: Impostor must be dealt with. The Inventor's Disk must be recovered.
