The Crimson Oars is a quest received from Sergeant Kylon at the Denerim Market District after completing Pearls Before Swine. Sergeant Kylon has asked the Warden to deal with the mercenaries at the Gnawed Noble Tavern. The innkeeper doesn't mind some blood (or 'sport' as she says), so force may be used.
To complete this quest, go to the Gnawed Noble Tavern and confront the Crimson Oars Leader. At this point you can either:
- Let the Crimson Oars stay (this will not net any gold).
- Kill the Crimson Oars.
- Persuade / Intimidate them to leave peacefully.
Return to Sergeant Kylon for a reward.
3 (only if they leave or are killed).
Talk to him again and he will give you 4 as thanks.
