    Okay, this is your first quest:

    First, search for key to leave the cage.
    Pick up a weapon from weapon rank nearby
    Find Lyris Titanborn and speak with her.
    Walk through the prison and mines killing mobs on the way.
    When you got out of mines, find the Sentinel atop a hill. Sneak closer to it and backstab to instant kill.
    Go back down the hill and towards the right – you will see a door with a blue light indicating the objective. It’s closed.
    Move forward towards the river and you’ll see a fire with some NPCs. The one wearing a pot for a hat is Cadwell. He will signal you to a nearby cave.
    Walk through the cave until you found a Propthet.
    Defend Lyris and let him swap Prophet out of his cell.
    Follow his instructions, kill The Child and run forward, there you’ll run out of the prison.
