The Syndicate in Stromgarde do battle with our contingent of militia there. In order to urge the rabble to fight our more disciplined troops, the Syndicate leaders have placed a bounty on our soldiers, awarding gold for each Stromgarde Badge gathered off killed militiamen.
We want those badges retrieved - we cannot allow the cutthroats to take trophies from our brave fallen!
Enter the Syndicate-controlled area of Stromgarde and hunt them for our badges.
Have you retrieved any Stromgarde Badges, <name>? The Syndicate must learn they cannot profit from our dead.
Thank you, <name>. We will inform the families of these fallen soldiers that they were killed in battle.
It will be grim news to bear, but it is better than the uncertainty of a missing loved one.
To get to Marez Cowl, go into Stromgarde and take the first left. Go to the back and around to the right, killing the Syndicate members and looting badges. Marez Cowl is behind the building at the dead end, not inside. Otto and Falconcrest are inside the Keep at the back of Stromgarde, straight down the road from Stromgarde's entrance. They are on the upper floor. Kill Syndicate members along the way and collect badges if any are still needed.
