Quietwater is the location of the second task, where they must retrieve a chessboard. It is a series of small islands connected by draw bridges. It is notable for a large population of 'crab claws' and 'fish icks' which can pose a reasonable threat to unprepared players.
"Danger lurks in this quiet town. Two drawbridges and two walls keep you from your goal. Do some shopping before you leave." - In-game description
