In this 10 Minute Sidequest your characters meet a foreign prince maybe? He looks pretty ragged but he says he's been robbed and wants some help finding the criminals or completing his own quest. Getting an in with a foreign prince has got to be worth a little trouble, right?

Are you trying to make use of the new 3 Pillar Experience system? 10 Minute Side Quests are designed to meet those exploration or social interaction pillars without hurling chaos into your game.
