Client: Ensetsu
(House, Port Bastok)
Reward: ability to become Ninja
Refer to:
On that one page, there are five maps. I will call them
maps 1 through 5, where map 1 is the topmost map.

You will enter the tunnel at N-6 of map 1. From N-6, head to
the letter "A" at A-9/A-10 on map 1, which connects to N-7/N-8
of map 2. Continue west (passing a couple of giants and what
appears to be a mini-bridge located just above your head level)
to about E-9/F-9. You will pass a set of steps; just behond the
steps is a "secret" passage going south -- secret because it's
shown on the in-game map. Take this secret passage and it
eventually leads east. Go to the east border of the G-9 square
(this is still in map 2, of course). You will eventually see a
pass leading north. (This will take you onto the bridge you saw
on your way to E-9/F-9) Head north until you are forced to go
east (do not drop down). Make your way toward the "D" on map 2
(again, don't fall off!). Point "D" on map 2 connects to point
"D" on map 5. On map 5, continue to H-10 (a bridge; don't fall
off), then to H-8 where you will turn to go east. Make your
way to J-7, and then you will be forced to travel south. While
heading south, hug the wall to your left and eventually you'll
end up at K-8/L-8 where you will find the ???.

When you examine the ???, THREE leeches will spawn and you must
kill them all. Then re-examine the ???. (Note that if you are
in a party, only one person needs to examine the ??? to spawn
the leeches. After you all kill the leeches, everyone in the
party can then examine the ??? and finish that part of the
quest. I.e., you all don't each have to examine the ??? and
each spawn the leeches.)

Return to Bastok and talk to Ensetsu, and he will send you to
Norg. Get to Norg by going through Yuhtunga Jungle, then
the Sea Grotto (s.w. corner of Yuhtunga Jungle) -- just hug
the wall to your right inside the grotto and enter through a
door. Once past the door, you can just run past any aggro to
Norg. Once you enter Norg, find Ryoma by the water and talk
to him. Then return to see Ensetsu in Bastok.
