Students of Virtue & Chaos
Reward: Chaos Statue & Virtue Statue
This quest starts by talking to Martin the student instructor. Is is located in the building with the ankh above the door on the outskirts of Sequanna Square. The easiest way to get to the building is to cross the bridge on entering the scene, go straight past the Oracle and keep heading in that direction behind the buildings and it is just on the right.
Martin will explain that his students require books for their studies. Ask him about the “books”, he will respond:
“I am trying to assemble works that illustrate the virtues in action for the students here, but they have proven difficult to find. Perhaps people are just not interested in their message any more. However, I am willing to reward adventurers such as yourself. If you can find the twelve books – four for each virtue – each of my students requires that have been scattered, they will give you pieces of a statue that illustrates the nature of virtue. I will assemble those pieces for you once you have all three, as a way of thanking you for your perseverance.”

Ask Gina if she needs any “help”, she will respond:
“Are you aware of the Books of Virtue? Well, you see, I am confident that if Martin is able to acquire them, he will use them to further his own narrow, self-serving teachings about the Virtues. But I have a plan that will prevent that. All you need to do is bring all twelve books back here so that I may burn them at the Chaos Shrine I have constructed. Destroying the books is the only way to demonstrate that Chaos indeed is the true nature of Virtue. I will of course reward you for this – a unique reward, I think you will agree.”
To claim the Chaos statue, just give Gina all 12 books.
