Zeke’s Quest: Find The Aquila Eagles

Prospector Zeke Quest – Aquila

Welcome to Aquila and the Achaean Way. The home of heroes and mythological beasts. Your first quest into this new world will send you to Nova Aquila. It’s a beautiful place with a vast array of art and music. Don’t you just love the big statues hovering over the dock and village?

Like most of the worlds, you’ll find Zeke has traveled here on another business venture. From the dock, run through the dock door (it doesn’t matter which one) and up the hill to the village. In the center of the isle, you’ll see a large pool outside the stone arches. Run around the pool and you’ll find Zeke standing near the cliff edge

He’ll tell you about his business deal with Dueling Dalton, who wants to establish the Hotel Aquila in Cool Ranch. Mr. Dalton would like some authentic decor for his hotel and he’s sent Zeke to find the Aquilan Eagles.

As with most Zeke Quests, you must complete certain tasks in some areas in order to be given a quest to enter another area where you can hunt down the next eagle. So don’t think you can get the quest from Zeke and then just set off to find them. And you don’t want to have to repeat a dungeon, just to get to the stone.

X Marks The SpotBelow are the locations of the kings and a map for the area they’re in. Look for the X on the map. Well of course it’s an X, how else would you Mark The Spot for treasure in a Pirate world?

Our Grand Prize Trivia Question

Aquila is a Latin word for eagle.
Where does the word “Aquila” come from
AND where can you find “it” today?

This might have been a hard one for some. But you don’t need access to Aquila to find the answer and we gave you a hint: there’s a story behind the name, look for that and you should be able to find the answers.

The Answers We Were Looking For:
Aquila (also known as Aetos Dios) was a giant, golden eagle which served as Zeus’ personal messenger and animal companion. In one account Zeus adopts the golden eagle as a good omen before the Titan War. In another account the eagle was once a mortal king named Periphas, whose virtuous rule was so celebrated that he came to be honored like a god. Zeus, in anger, would have smote him with a thunderbolt, but Apollo intervened. He  transformed the king into an eagle and sat him beside Zeus to be his companion. Zeus to the Greeks is known as “Jupiter” to the Romans.

Zeus to the Greeks "Jupiter" to the Romans Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, Russia

Today Aquila can be found in the heavens. Aquila, The Celestial Eagle, is one of the three constellations which have bright stars forming the Summer Triangle. A nearly perfectly straight line of three stars symbolizes part of the wings. The center and brightest of these three stars is Altair. The tips of the wings extend further to the southeast and northwest. The head of the eagle stretches off to the southwest.
