Quest Map


  1. Meet Vael in Sacnoth Valley to begin your mission.
  2. Follow Vael to the hierophant's stronghold.
  3. You have three minutes to sneak in and out of the stronghold.
  4. Poison the food supplies.
  5. Report back to Vael.

Obtained from

Captain Langmar in Grothmar Wardowns


Plan A


Common to all professions Tryptophan Signet


"Here is the situation, <name>. The Charr Shamans [sic] are regrouping. They have invited two of the remaining warband leaders to their stronghold for a feast. Should they combine forces, this would be devastating not only for the Ebon Vanguard but for Ascalon as well. I'm concerned about attacking them directly, but Vael doesn't think it will be necessary. He believes that with his aid, you will infiltrate their ranks and assassinate the two warband leaders without suspicion. I concur. Vael waits for you in Sacnoth Valley."
Accept: "A knife in the back removes risk from the front."
Reject: "Get someone else to skulk around in a black cape."

Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Vael)

"I see you're getting the hang of covert work. I've recently procured a potion of a considerably slumberous nature from an Asuran alchemist and created a couple of bombs to set off within yon stronghold. Here's the deal: once the Charr inside are dozing, you'll have little time to get in, find their stores of food, poison the stores with this, and get out again. Fun! Time is of the essence once the bombs hit. Just in and out. Don't dawdle."
Accept: "I am ready." (starts the timer)
Reject: "Give me a moment to prepare."

Intermediate Dialogue 2

Vael: "I'm going in! The gas will take affect [sic] momentarily."
Vael: "Don't worry; we'll be gone long before the convulsions and vomiting starts."

Reward Dialogue

"Amazing! You weren't a terrible sidekick. Unfortunately one of our marks hadn't yet arrived. We'll have to go back."


Single Ugly Grawl Seeks Same for Mindless Destruction in Ascalon


From Longeye's Ledge, follow the quest marker to meet up with Vael in Sacnoth Valley. After speaking with him, he will run up to the Charr camp and disappears, disabling all the Charrs in the camp. Now you have three minutes to poison their food supplies. There are a total of five storages, two in the northern part of the camp (near the number 1 on the map), and three in the south-eastern part (near the number 2 on the map). Use your alt key to locate them, and run back out the way you came in, wrapping up the quest by speaking with Vael.


  • It is possible to finish this quest solo with running skills equipped, since you don't have to necessarily fight any enemies and all you have to do is run from Point A to Point B. But in order to succeed with the subsequent quest Single Ugly Grawl Seeks Same for Mindless Destruction in Ascalon which involves fighting it is advised to invite a full party and take them to Sacnoth Valley (and in case of a full NPC party leave them at the entrance during your food poisoning run to call them in for backup for the next quest).
  • The three-minute time limit is ample to complete the job and get back to Vael without any running skills or speed boosts (with about a minute to spare).
  • If you fail to poison the food within the time limit, the quest objective will change. Your new objective will be to kill Gharaz the Glutton, who will spawn at the flame altar in the encampment. Once he is defeated, the quest is complete and you can collect your reward.
Image:Bug.png Bug! If you fail to poison the food and have to kill Gharaz the Glutton, when you go to Vael and talk him to claim the quest reward, Gharaz and the Charr with him will respawn again allowing you to kill them over and over if you do not accept the reward. You will not receive rep. points, XP, or have points added to your kill count for these kills and they do not appear to drop any items.

Publication information
Release date





Rebellion era

Forbidden Fruit was a roleplaying adventure written by Nigel D. Findley published in the magazine Adventures Unlimited 2. It was written to as a tie-in to the West End Games sourcebook Goroth: Slave of the Empire, also written by Findley. A month after writing this adventure, Findley passed away. The article was illustrated by Gavin Lonergan. In its copyright attribution the articles specified that "This adventure is unofficial and is not endorsed by Lucasfilm Ltd."

Plot summary

The T'B'Deli'Mai, an organization on oppressed Goroth Prime, has a plan to reactivate an ion cannon on the planet's moon V'Sar and use it to attack the Imperial Star Destroyers present in the system. The Alliance to Restore the Republic caught word of the plan, and predicted that it would cause the Empire to retaliate with biological weapons that would destroy all life on the planet. In order to prevent this occurring, the Rebels sent a team to Goroth to stop the T'B'Deli'Mai and also prevent the Imperials hearing word of the plot, since that could also lead to an attack on the planet.

A mysterious bat offers a strange new energy supply, but is it a blessing or a curse?



In the depths of Cybertron, the two technorganic warriors, Blackarachnia and Cheetor, mock-spar in their beast modes. They are being tutored by Optimus Primal on finding their still point during battle so they can transform. Cheetor objects to the new, "mystical" Optimus and proclaims that he trusts his instincts. All this unfolds while they are watched by an unfamiliar set of bat eyes. Beside the more advanced Blackarachnia and Cheetor, now learning to transform in combat, Rattrap is still struggling with the basics of his technorganic body and relearning the transformation process—unsuccessfully. Optimus Primal tells Rattrap to have patience and just let it happen. Frustrated with his new body and his liability in combat, the rat lashes out at his leader. According to him, Primal should save his advice for the still-missing Rhinox and Silverbolt.

Hurt, Primal leaves Rattrap, while the other two scold the rat for his behavior. Primal notices something up above and catches it. It's a bat, and Primal is shocked at the presence of organic life on Cybertron. Before he can examine it further, he is hit with a sonic pulse, and the creature flaps away. The Maximals pursue the bat in their beast modes through the lower regions of Cybertron before Cheetor transforms and catches the creature. As Primal holds the bat down, it speaks! Not only that, it—or rather, he—claims to be a Maximal.

At this point, Jetstorm and his Aero Drones appear and attack the Maximals. Primal, Cheetor, and Blackarachnia transform into combat modes, while Rattrap, unable to transform and devoid of weapons, hides. After a short clash, the Maximals run away, followed by Jetstorm, who fires a homing mine after the Maximals that the bat deflects with a sonic blast. While the Maximals take cover, the Aero Drones are destroyed by the bat, and Jetstorm vows to return.

The creature, being the kind soul he is, leads the Maximals back to his hideout. On the way, Primal tells him a simplified story of the Beast Wars, their reformatting, and basically all the events leading up to the present. The bat recounts how he found himself trapped in this new form when the first Vehicon drones attacked Cybertron. As other robots were destroyed, he fell down a deep pit and awoke, he says, in his current, organic body. When the Maximals reach their destination, Primal is amazed at Nightscream's temporary home. It is a towering, organic fruit tree lodged in the metal world of Cybertron.

Mainframe's compensation for Soundwave's survival in the movie.

The creature explains that he has been eating from the tree since his transformation and offers its fruit to the others. While three of them accept, Cheetor is suspicious of the creature. While Primal tries the fruit, claiming that it may help their organic components, Cheetor retorts that he only processes energon, period. Cheetor interrogates the bat and demands answers. He wants to know if the newcomer's an agent for Megatron, but the bat denies it, as Megatron took everything he loved away from him. Cheetor and the bat go back to the others, but the Maximals seem unresponsive and strange. Primal beats his chest and speaks in a primitive way, while Rattrap and Blackarachnia squabble over the fruit, hissing and nipping one another. The organic fruits have magnified their bestial sides, creating a mental imbalance and the eventual dominance of their animal natures.

Amidst the chaos, Jetstorm reappears and attacks. Cheetor attempts to snap the others out of their beast mentality and get them transform. They ignore him, and he and the bat attempt to take the food away from the increasingly feral Maximals. Cheetor notices the trunk of the organic tree, transforms, and cuts it down, despite the bat's protests. This restores the affected Maximals to their old selves, and they transform and begin the fight. The bat is badly hurt by a blast from Jetstorm, and the only way to save his life is for Primal to reformat him.

Dammit, Mainframe. This is why nobody liked Beast Machines!

From his chest, a brilliant white light shoots out. The bat's organic components are mixed with technology, and a technorganic bat emerges. Transforming into his new robot mode, he decimates the ranks of the Aero-drones and drains energon out of Jetstorm until the general crashes. But reformatting the creature has taken its toll on Optimus. He is severely weakened and requests Cheetor to lead while he recovers, as Cheetor was right to destroy the tree; its purely organic nature was creating imbalance in their technorganic bodies. Cheetor eagerly accepts and orders Optimus to be placed on a stretcher.

The new robot decides to travel with them and introduces himself as Nightscream. But as they leave, a fruit from the organic tree puts down roots into what appears to be organic soil!

Maximals Vehicons


"Sit! Eat! Get strong!"

Optimus Primal, nutritional specialist on fruit


Continuity errors

  • Nightscream cannot transform and is reformatted, then instantaneously transforms, unlike the other Maximals, who must relearn transformation. (Rattrap, who hasn't relearnt yet, is as surprised as the viewer, exclaiming "You gotta be kidding me!" at the sight).
    • However, it is arguable but likely that Nightscream simply learned from his times watching and studying how to transform properly as the others were training, which is what he admitted to doing when he was "spying" on them. Seeing how they did it and obtaining the same type of body, it's logical he simply applied what he witnessed earlier on himself and had better success than Rattrap, who is very much a non-believer.

Transformers references

  • During his flashback, Nightscream is seen hiding behind a Transformer that resembles Soundwave.

Real-world references

As the Maximals hold down Nightscream, he looks at Optimus and cries, "Take your stinking hands off me, you dirty ape!" This is a reference to the film Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston.

This episode was riffed on in MSTF fashion at BotCon 2000. It is one of two Beast Machines episodes to get the MSTF treatment, the other being "A Wolf in the Fold".
