Emoric is a Factorum of the Dustmen and Initiate of the Fourth Circle in the Hive's Gathering Dust Bar. Flanked at all times by two zombie bodyguards, he offers Dead Contracts and recruits new members to the faction. He also has been searching for Pharod, since the amount of corpses he sends to the Mortuary outnumber that of any other collectors, making the Dustmen suspicious.
Signing a Dead Contract Edit
The Nameless One can sign a dead contract with Emoric for 250 XP. If TNO has already signed a Dead contract with either Mortai or Old Coppereyes, signing a second or third contract will increase his chaos value. It is recommended to sign with Mortai first, since his price can be raised, and there is a vision to be seen, for more experience.
Joining the Dustmen Edit
- Main article: Dustmen#Joining the Faction
Emoric is the recruiter for the Dustmen faction. TNO can ask to join by saying he doesn't *want* to join, but simply believes what the Dustmen believe. He has a few tasks that require completion before TNO can be admitted to the faction:
- Finding the thief masquerading as a dustman for Norochj.
- Stopping Awaiting-Death from killing himself.
- Finding out why Sere has become skeptical of the Dustman philosophy.
- Finding out where Soego has gone and what he is doing on his self-imposed missionary service for the faction. (Grants 2500 XP.)
Note: Joining a faction isn't necessarily permanent, TNO can always subsequently change factions, if he renounces the old one. There is therefore no downside to joining.
Tracking Down Pharod Edit
The Dustmen are suspicious of Pharod's activities. He's been bringing too many corpses to the Mortuary of late and wish to understand what his source is. It is only possible to ask him details about the bodies (which are surprisingly old) with at least 13 intelligence. Offering to help Emoric in his task will start the quest.
Note: If TNO has vowed to Pharod not to say anything about where he is finding the bodies, and TNO still completes this quest by telling Emoric, his chaotic value will be increased for breaking the vow.
