The player must go northeast from the Cloud Forest outskirts until he reaches a bridge made of broken ruins. As you approach the bridge, you can hear someone asking if you want to help the great Kenneth Haight. If the player now jumps onto the bridge, then Kenneth can be found on the edge. If you talk to him, then he will ask the player if he can take back his fortress for him. If one now agrees, then one can go southeast, to the tip of the eastern Limgrave region, to find Fort Haight. At the top of this fort you will also find one half of the Dectus Medallion, which is needed to operate the Great Elevator of Dectus in Liurnia. You now have to talk to him until he says that he needs to find another Heir of Limgrave so that you can progress later in your quest line.

If you now talk to Kenneth Haight, he will tell the player that he has chosen a new ruler – Lady Nepheli. You must now talk to Nepheli. She will thank the player for his help and tell him that she has left her foster father Gideon. If you keep talking to her, she will give the player a Dragon Forge stone.
