Summary

In 1989, ex-plumber Winston Blunt finds a sphere that’s one of six fallen from the sky. Winston soon patents a new method of bonding carbon atoms and sets up Galaxy Plastics Inc. Before shooting himself, he appoints a Mr. Dolman to run the company. When industrial spy Max Fisher breaks into the factory, he is attacked by plastic action figures before being caught by Dolman and the Nestene Intelligence. Max throws a spanner that damages the Nestene tank and causes an explosion, but Max is pursued by the remains of the Dolman Auton. Max Fisher dies in a car accident whilst fighting miniature dolls but in the August of 1990 one Max Fisher invests money in a plastics factory and leaves behind flowers on a shallow grave — plastic flowers of course!

The following article contains "spoiler" information and may interfere with your game enjoyment.
Do not read this article if you wish to figure out its subject on your own.

Ardon: Ah , yes. I have heard your name whispered on the low voices of the Kerritamba people. Let's do business.
PC: Wait a second. Who are you?
Ardon: (Ardon chuckles darkly.) I am Ardon Da'mora, servant of Chief Kerritamba. I handle... worldly affairs for him.
PC: What... worldly affairs?
Ardon: I have no doubt that you have heard of the Outcasts; the pitful insects of the world that thrive within the cave just beyond our sight. Together, you and I will rid the village of those meddlesome pests. I think--
PC: What if I don't want any part of this?
Ardon: (Ardon scoffs.) Then you'll be banished from the Kerritamba village and marked as a traitor.
PC: Fair enough. When do we start?
Ardon: Now. (Ardon smiles.) First, we want to send a message to the Outcasts that the Kerritamba mean business. You'll do this by bumping off 5 Outcast members. You'll find them in the dreaded Webweaver Cave just behind the waterfall. So, you Kerritamba, what do you say?
PC: I'll get right on it.
Ardon: Good. (Ardon smiles smuggly.) Now get to it.

Description:
Ardon Da'mora, a rather shady individual, needs you to send a 'message' to the Outcast community by defeating 5 Outcast members. Ardon mentioned a Webweaver cave near a waterfall.

This is fairly straight-forward. Just head to the Webweaver Cave and defeat 5 Outcasts (CL 38 Elite). After defeating the Outcasts, you need to return to Ardon (-186, -126) in the Kerritamba Village.

Ardon: (Ardon arches a brow.) Back so soon? Tell me you haven't completed your task already.
PC: I have. Does that suprise you?
Ardon: (Ardon smirks.) I have underestimated you, is all. Nonetheless...I must brood over out next attack. Come back in a moment, won't you?"
PC: (You nod.)
Ardon: (Ardon returns to his thoughts.)

This completes this quest. If you talk to Ardon again, he gives you the Exemplar Zheus quest.
