Nyrid is a Wizard who is impersonating Purnisc and holding him prisoner. He can be found in Purnisc's House in Copperlane during His Old Self.

Background[edit | edit source]

Nyrid is a Wizard who was sent by Purnisc's svef supplier to make up the lost copper after Purnisc failed to turn over part of the supplier's share. Nyrid locked up Purnisc in the upstairs storeroom and tortured him for days. He then magically changed into Punisc's form and impersonated him to his customers.

His Old Self

Quest[edit | edit source]

  • His Old Self: During this quest, Nyrid can be found in Purnisc's House in Copperlane, just north of the market. He will be impersonating Purnisc when you first arrive. You can buy svef from him or discover who he really is. He will also reveal himself if the player says anything aggressive or attacks him. After discovering who he really is, the player can make a deal to kill Purnisc on his behalf, which will earn you a discount on svef or you can fight him. If you chose to fight, after the fight is over, Nyrid can either be killed or put in your Stronghold's Dungeons, if they have been built. After a while a distant relative might offer 700 gold pieces for his release. He will not drop his loot if put in the dungeons, even after Patch 3.03 (July 2016). He is a wizard, surrounded by six mercenaries (some fighters and some rogues), and one more another room away. The fight might be very difficult for lower level players.
