  • Sherk: Ah! What are you doing in my swamp?! Don't you know that Ogres live alone for a reason?
  • Sherk: Eh? You're from across the sea, a land called Win? You certainly don't look like a winner to me, ya small fry.
  • Sherk: Fine then. Consider yourself lucky I'm in a... mood. I'll talk with you instead of crackin' yer bones for my bread.
  • Sherk: Ogres are tough. We're independent and solitary folks. You don't bother us or interfere with our life, we leave you alone.
  • Sherk: That is, until it's time to find ourselves a partner. Then we'll turn over hell and highwater ta be together.
  • Sherk: And... well, when it's two ogres getting together, it's simple. But... I passed by a tall tower, and heard a Maiden's voice from inside.
  • Sherk: Ogres don't live in fairytale towers, or have a voice that could make flowers grow with its lovely lilt!
  • Sherk: I've been tryin' ta figure out how to approach this... I'm gettin' on in years, I need to find someone, and she's the girl.
  • Sherk: If you can help me out, I'll be real grateful. I'm sure I've got something that you'd like in exchange.
  • Sherk: Follow the rocky-looking path to find the tower. I'll meet with you there- prepare to be a wingman for an ogre.

Stage 2[]

» Follow the stones in the path to the tower at [-1997, 81, -5287]

  • Sherk: This is the place. She's up at the top... Remember, I won't stop 'til I meet her. Coming here means you're in for the long haul.
  • Maiden: I hear a voice outside! Oh, who might it be, I wonder~
  • Sherk: Here goes... Hello, fair lady of the tower! I am Sherk! I heard your voice on the road- and I must meet you myself! ...that's formal enough, right?
  • Maiden: Ohoho! An admirer? Such a lovely, rugged accent! However ...if you wish to meet me, I'd like to see your devotion, yes?
  • Sherk: Woman, you have no idea what you're sayin' when you ask for devotion.
  • Maiden: There is a lovely urn my father had before. He took it with him to his grave, and I do miss my dear father so.
  • Maiden: Retrieve the urn for me, so I can have a memento of him. Brave the crypts of Olux, behind the bank... And prove your devotion, dear suitor~
  • Sherk: ...I'll return! You'll get your urn, no doubt! ... ...and a lovely fine boot up my backside. I don't fancy a massacre for a piece of pottery, Win person.
  • Sherk: I go into Olux, I'll get attacked. I get attacked, I attack back. They'll come after us... wouldn't want to present her with that. You get that urn for me, alright?

  • Sherk: And this is why I asked your help. As nice as blood spreads on toast, I have to reserve my sensibilities for the miss.

  • Sherk: I've got you some compensation already, so don't worry about getting snubbed for credit. Thank you kindly for the help.
  • Sherk: Just one last thing. I doubt she'll be expecting an ogre of all people to climb up her tower. I don't want her to get frightened away.
  • Sherk: So, Win person. Care to temper her expectations before I arrive? Head up before me.

Stage 4[]

» Enter the tower and make Sherk confess his love to the maiden.


  • Maiden: Ohoho... you're one of those Humans I've read about, aren't you? Did you truly intend to be my suitor, dear?~
  • Sherk: Not exactly, milady! I'm the one seeking your affections- Coming up the ladder. I know I may not be a fairytale husband, but-
  • Maiden: Oh...my...goodness! A big, strong, strapping ogre!! Not a fairytale, my foot! And so polite too... Oh you'll make a perfect husband, heehee~
  • Sherk: ...ehm. I. Ah.
  • Sherk: Aren't your type supposed to be less... Ehm... Clefted? Grizzled? Pale?
  • Maiden: Oh, come here, Sherky-pie, give me a big kiss! And no need to worry, there's plenty more in store for my big hubby after that~
  • Sherk: Cor, lady! Even for an ogre you're layin' it on a bit thick! Aah, you see, ogres, and people like you, they have layers, right? And your first one is... Eh... ...rotten.
  • Sherk: Now I'm sure you'll find a nice lad somewhere who'll take you for who you are, but until you find someone who has no standards, shove your creepy lips where I can't see 'em!!
  • Maiden: ...I...I g-guess he was rotten to the core, despite his...l-luscious exterior ...but you'll make me feel better, right, you s-studly human? Right?! RIGHT?!!

  • At the back of the tower there are stairs leading down to a basement with a diary, which provides insight into the maiden's story.
Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to the contents of the diary.

Dear diary...
I found this strange creature along the road outside the tower- it dug up from the ground.
It looked so spindly and thin- I decided to take it in as a pet. I've called her Fiona.
My father is confused as to what it is, and I am too, but it needs some loving care for certain…

Dear diary...
Fiona quite likes my father, it seems! I keep finding her scratching at his door.
She seems to like to bite, too...it is a habit I'll need to train out of her, given it leaves my skin pale.

Dear diary...
My father has died today... I found Fiona atop him. She must have been trying to comfort him...
His funeral rites are being sorted. I cannot write more...at least I will have my dear pet.

Dear diary...
...Fiona was the problem to begin with. I feel sickly and pale, and it all started when she arrived!!
I didn't want to admit it- She is the reason my father died, and the reason that I look like death when I look in the mirror!!
The only consolation is that she seems to have disappeared on her own. Good riddance to her!
I dearly need a man to comfort me during these times... Not even a man, anyone will do!!

  • The pet seems to have actually been a Parasite of Decay, as it might have been starved of light, and leeched off of the light of the Maiden and her father.
  • The name Sherk is an anagram of Shrek, which is a reference. The original Shrek movie has Shrek rescue a princess to rid his swamp of fairy-tale creatures.
  • Sherk mentioning the Maiden having layers at Stage 4 is a reference to a line in Shrek, with Shrek saying "Onions have layers."
  • If you see Sherk again after the quest, Sherk will have a wooden donkey in the center of his house, as a reference to his companion, Donkey.
  • This quest got updated in 1.20. To see the original quest, see The Maiden Tower (1.19).
