A shipment of goods, destined for a University of Orlais researcher named Frederic, appears to have been waylaid by bandits. The shipping label suggests his camp is somewhere in Nazaire's Pass.
A "new quest" marker on the map points to a broken wagon, a dead body and some remnants in the Canyons, shortly south of the entrances to the Forgotten and the Sand Rock Mine, where the first of these supplies might be found. The remaining four can be looted from White Claw Raiders.
The first research supply to be found bears a package label which reads:
Property of Frederic of Serault
University of Orlais
Nazaire's Pass Research Camp
Professor Frederic set up his research camp in the same area where the Inquisition will encamp on Nazaire's Pass, just south of the Surveyor landmark. The Inquisitor tells the researcher of his findings upon speaking to him, which completes this quest and starts the following, Frederic's Livelihood.
- 128 XP
- 80 Influence
- The "new quest" marker remains until the location is examined, regardless of whether the quest already has been acquired before by looting Research Supplies from White Claw Raiders.
- The raiders drop the supplies, until five of them have been obtained. If this is the case before this wagon is visited, the examinable sack becomes inactive and the "new quest" marker disappears.
- If Frederic is asked to "tell [me] of this place," the quest Assault on Griffon Wing Keep is unlocked.
