    Hi - tried to get rid of some "Untranslated ancient tome" and started completing the "Ye old gargish"-quest by Axem the curator. However, if I try to hand over the marked quest item (orange hue) my system says: "An item must be in a backpack [and not in a container within] to be marked as a quest item"

    Can't complete the quest therefore. Anyone else the prob? Regards, Fizzle

    PS: Item is of course in the backpack, and it has already been marked as quest item (the system message pops up stating "you have completed the quest"...)

    First off I'm trying to understand this... The "Ye old Gargish" I think is the little gray pieces of which I think you need 5 of them not just one like the tome...

    Secondly you don't GIVE him the item you toggle them as quest items and then you have to talk to the curator again. So you don't actually hand him anything from your bag just toggle them orange and then talk to him again by double clicking his bar.

    I think this is the situation where "OMG" was meant for... I simply supposed that handing over the quest item would end the quest, and the error message you get doesn't help in any way. Thx MalagAste!
    (the quest you mean is named "Putting the pieces together" btw)

    No usually they don't and it doesn't help that UO has 3 or 4 different Quest systems that all do things totally differently.

    Those untranslated tomes are nice of find, BTW. What are they worth, 10k or so and some of those jewels you get from GM mining? I haven't gotten one in a long time.

    Fizzleton did you get the quest to work? You don't hand the book to Axem, you just double click. I just do the museum quest for books and sadly still don't have a full set of limit, collector, or 1st editions. *sigh*
