To get this quest, talk to an NPC named Alfesar in Rabao at (H-7) near the pond rim. He will ask you to find something in the Quicksand Caves.
Make sure you have a map ready. Head off to the Quicksand Caves entrance in Eastern Altepa Desert at (J-7). You must find a targetable ??? in there and touch it for the key item Ancient Tablet Fragment.
How to get to the ??? points:
You will only need Sneak for this quest.
Enter through the (J-7) entrance of Eastern Altepa. This is our starting point, you will not need to check any other entrances.
Okay, on this first map you're in you'll notice there's a drop at (I-7)/(J-7). If you fall on the Western side of the drop it will take you to 1/5 of the spawnpoints. If you drop down the Eastern side, this route will eventually lead us to the other 4/5 spawnpoints.
If you choose to go West, hug the right wall until you you're in a dead end with a beetle at (H-6). This is a spawnpoint. If it is not there exit at (D-5) to Eastern Altepa and return to the (J-7) entrance to our starting point to now check the other points.
If you go East, hug the right wall until you come to the open room. There is a spawn point in the middle of this room around (H-10) or (G-10). If it's not there, continue to head west hugging the right wall until you reach the other smaller room. In the Northwest corner of this room in (E-9) is another spawn point. On the map, you'll notice there is another drop thing. Drop into the (F-10) portion in the Southeast corner, signified by a little A.
You are now on the 2nd map.
Follow the path through until you reach the junction at (F-9). Turn right first, and travel to around (D-9) to check this spawn point. If it isn't there, turn around and head East. You'll reach the open room and you're going to want to take the Southeast passage from this room in (I-10). Take a left at the junction and head East until you reach (L-11)... the last spawnpoint. If it is not at this point, then it has sadly moved and you're going to want to start again.
Spawnpoints on first map: H-6, H-10, E-9 Spawnpoints on second map: D-9, L-11
Once you obtain the Ancient Tablet Fragment, return to Rabao and talk to Alfesar again. He will tell you to go to San d'Oria Cathedral to meet Charlaimagnat.
Charlaimagnat is located downstairs. When you first enter the chapel turn left and at the end of the hallway before the Manuscript room there is a stairway on the right. Talk to him to get the reward. He'll ask you to come back another day because he need to translate the scroll first. Return to him when he's done and you'll get your reward.
