Return the Malem Pendant to Vahlarriel Demonslayer in Desolace.
As you continue your search of the wagon you find not only a pendant, but also footprints leading off towards the south. In the distance you can see smoke rising from a large fort. The smoke is from a kept fire, not the burning of buildings, and your instincts tell you that the Malems, if still alive, were taken that direction.
You think Vahlarriel at Nijel's Point should not only see the pendant you've found, but also know about the signs of life to the south.
