To begin this quest, wait for nightfall (or meditate to force nightfall) and then go to the ritual stones in the northeast of Ravensthorpe, as shown below. When you reach the stone, interact with it to trigger a cutscene Ake will show up at this point, and he’ll explain why Alvis hasn’t come. Ake doesn’t believe in spirits, Eivor insists that the fires should be lit, and the rest of the ritual performed.
Find and Light the Firepits Around Ravensthorpe
The first task you’ll have is to find a number of firepits around Ravensthorpe, and light them with your torch. You can equip your torch and stand near the firepits, or you can interact with them instead. Either way, you’ll need to use your raven to scout the surrounding area and locate any firepits. Most of them will be within the immediate vicinity of Ravensthorpe, but there’s one on top of the cliff where Eivor performed their first Leap of Faith, on the other side of the river to the south of Ravensthorpe.
Once you’ve lit all the fires, return to Ake at the ritual stones and then follow him up the hill to the south. At the top of the hill you’ll find a Foul Totem. Interact with the totem to activate it, then be ready to fight three spirit bears. You’ll need to kill all three before you can speak with Ake again. Don’t worry if Ake becomes incapacitated: there’s no time limit and he’ll get up at the end of the fight. Speak with Ake once all the bears are dead to receive your reward of 140 Festival Tokens.
