Dirty Laundry is a faction quest in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Director Castol told me that a Vailian Trading Company spy in the Luminous Bathhouse sent word about an off-the-books meeting between a Royal Deadfire Company official named Quarno and a Príncipi captain by the name of Töla.

Castol wants me to uncover the details of their smuggling arrangement.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • This quest will begin upon completion of Terms of Trade. Director Castol explains the importance of luminous adra to the VTC. If you already completed A Glimpse Beyond, you will receive both Minor and Moderate Positive reputation with the VTC.
  • Head over to the Luminous Bathhouse and talk to Brizze on the upper floor. She will reveal that an RDC operative, Quarno, and a Principi agent, Töla, have bought out the entire first floor and got rid of accidental witnesses - except for attendants - to ensure privacy and confidentiality of their talks.
  • Brizze will reveal her plan too: She will disguise you as a bathhouse attendant to serve the two and perhaps discover the details of their special arrangement. Once you give her the go-ahead, you will dress as a bath attendant and be sent to figure out what's going on. Brizze will provide you with 2 bottles of Rice Wine to get Töla talking.
  • Note that you will be unable to take your *currently equipped* gear, but you will still have full access to the rest of your inventory. Brizze will tell you that if at any time things should get out of hand, there will be a stash of weapons in one of the changing booths (consisting of a bunch of Daggers, Wands, and a Battle-worn Grimoire.)
  • Note that this quest will automatically force you to rest, discarding any rested bonuses (such as the Adratic Glow from using the bathhouse). This happens when you change into the bathhouse attire and back, once when you give Brizze the OK, and another time upon leaving the bathhouse. There is no way to avoid this, except by skipping the quest.
Gain information peacefully
  • Töla will be alone at first and you can give her the Rice Wine. If have reputation 2 or more with the Príncipi, she seems to think you look familiar. You will have the option to press her with Diplomacy 8 and Bluff 7. Then feed her another rice wine bottle and you'll be able to learn that not only did Quarno sell her cannons, he also hired her to raid a VTC luminous adra convoy.
  • You can also talk to Quarno and insist on speaking with him. With Diplomacy 8, Bluff 10, or Intimidate 12, you can squeeze him for information.
  • Make sure to steal Quarno's Ledger from the Accountant, who spends most of the time with his back turned, occupied with the aquarium at the end of the left side of the bathhouse. Inspect the ledger in your inventory once you have it.
  • Once you've got everything you can, head back to Director Castol to finish the quest, giving him the three pieces of information you retrieved.
Kill the agents
  • You can attack Töla and Quarno at any time while in the bathhouse. Doing so will cause the armed Rauataian Guards and Príncipi Wizards to attack. The fight is very easy, even without weapons or armor equipped. Grab Quarno's Ledger from the Accountant once all is done.
  • Though this route doesn't directly get you any information from the agents (unless you talked to them prior), the possession of the ledger makes up for it (though you won't actually be able to hand it in). Return to Director Castol, who is glad to see an end to the matter, regardless of the methods used.

10000 Director Castol told me that a Vailian Trading Company spy in the Luminous Bathhouse sent word about an off-the-books meeting between a Royal Deadfire Company official named Quarno and a Príncipi captain by the name of Töla.

Castol wants me to uncover the details of their smuggling arrangement.

1 Discover the details of Quarno's and Töla's arrangement.
10001 I've infiltrated the meeting at the Luminous Bathhouse. Brizze provided me with bottles of rice wine - apparently Töla's a chatty drunk.
20001 I learned from Quarno that the Príncipi intend to attack Vailian Trading Company assets.
20006 I acquired a ledger from Quarno's accountant. I should inspect it in case it contains any useful information about what he and Príncipi captain Töla are up to.
20000 Before sending me down to the main floor of the bathhouse, Brizze gave me several bottles of rice wine - Töla's favorite drink.
20007 I attacked Quarno and Töla. That'll put an end to their arrangement.
20005 I've equipped my gear for now, but I'll need to disguise myself as a bathhouse attendant when I return to the bathhouse.
20003 I've learned all I can at the bathhouse.
2 Report to Director Castol.
10002 I've learned that Quarno is supplying the Príncipi with high grade munitions.

I can report back to Castol now, or I can dig for more details. He'll be waiting for me at the Vailian Trading Company headquarters in Queen's Berth

I can recover all my equipment once I've left the bathhouse.

20006 I acquired a ledger from Quarno's accountant. I should inspect it in case it contains any useful information about what he and Príncipi captain Töla are up to.
20001 I learned from Quarno that the Príncipi intend to attack Vailian Trading Company assets.
20004 Deep in her cups, Töla mentioned that she's planning a raid on a Vailian Trading Company convoy carrying luminous adra.
20003 I've learned all I can at the bathhouse.
3 Speak with Brizze.
10003 Director Castol told me to make contact with Brizze, a Vailian Trading Company spy working undercover at the Luminous Bathhouse in Periki's Overlook. She may be able to tell me what she's learned about the smugglers.
20005 I've equipped my gear for now, but I'll need to disguise myself as a bathhouse attendant when I return to the bathhouse.
20008 Ganor told me that Brizze can be found on the upper floor of the Luminous Bathhouse.
4 Infiltrate the meeting at the Luminous Bathhouse.
10004 Quarno and Töla are meeting in the bathhouse to discuss their arrangement.

I can infiltrate the meeting disguised as a bathhouse attendant with Brizze's help - she's waiting for me to give the go-ahead on the second floor of the bathhouse.

5 Report to Director Castol.
10005 I killed Quarno and Töla. Director Castol will want to know how I handled things. He'll be waiting for me at the Vailian Trading Company headquarters in Queen's Berth.
10 Return to Director Castol.
10010 I killed Brizze. Director Castol will want to know what happened. If I want to tell him, he'll be waiting for me on the upper floor of the Vailian Trading Company headquarters in Queen's Berth.
Unused strings
- 20002 Quarno grew suspicious of my questioning, but I managed to avoid violence. I don't think I can pull that off twice.
End states
Yes 30000 I gathered the information Castol needed to prove a rogue Royal Deadfire Company agent is smuggling weapons to a Príncipi captain.
Yes 30001 I killed Quarno and Töla, putting an end to their smuggling operation for good.
Yes 30002 I killed Brizze, putting an end to the plan altogether.
- 30003 I lied to Castol, telling him there was no bargain between Quarno and Töla. The smuggling ring will go on without his knowledge.
No 30004 Someone critical to the completion of this quest has been killed.
