I want to side with Principi and the Vailians, and I know they are friends with the Crookspur folks.  I have completed the quest to wipe out the Wahaki clan for Master Kua and turned it in to both Furrante and Castol.  However, they didn't give me any new quests.

 

I have a quest from the Royal Deadfire Company to kill Master Kua.  They offered me money, and I like money.  But aside from the roleplaying perspective, I'm afraid it might disrupt the Principi and VTC questlines.  Is it "safe" to kill him after completing the Wahaki quest?

I killed him without even having any quests for it

 

You can still work with both the Principi and the Vaillians (pretty sure you don't even get any negative reputation with either)

Master Kua has 1 stand-alone quest that doesn't matter much. It disrupts nothing.

who is the quest giver for the Master Kua bounty? It's the last head I have to turn in and I can't find anyone to take it ANYWHERE. 

 

Ugh coimpletionism

Just played through Crookspur Island, though not meticulously. 

 

Near as I can tell, all four factions (sorta) want something to do with the slavers.

 

VTC:  Want to make a deal so they can get funding (?) for ships.

RDC: Want to wipe out the slavers so they can build a military base there for the Good of Eora.

One Principi leader wants to wipe them out, another make a deal with them so they can then make that side-deal with the VTC mentioned above.

 

The Huana is the only one that seems to be left out, but you they're interested through the Wahaki clan (who understandably want the slavers pulverized).

 

Now if one just goes in and smacks Master Kua around the head and then leaves, it can mess things up a bit.  HOWEVER, if you make sure to free both sets of slaves in the dungeon, then Aedyls will be very happy with you that you freed one set of slaves (as opposed to slightly happy if you just kill Kua)  and Furrante will say the equivalent of "whatever". 

 

More to the point if you tell the VLC that those slaves deserved to be free, they'll swallow their complaints and you'll still get a very minor rep boost with them as well. 

 

The RDC is, of course, delighted.  As for the Huana, I don't think they give any direct bennies, but whacking the slavers and freeing the other set of slaves is an easy way to get on the good side of the Wahaki clan, which is important to the Huana.

 

In fact, near as I can tell the only people who will be upset  if you go in and lay waste to Crooksupr, is, well, the Crookspur slavers.  

 

And to that I have to say: Suck Flavers. :lol:

 

===

 

I think the key reason everyone is happy (more or less) is that these slavers are enslaving people they aren't supposed to (Deadfire residents).  The Watcher confirming this AND freeing the slaves puts the VTC in a bit of a bind, as they can't be TOO upset with you, otherwise people would start asking questions they'd rather not be asked.  So they'll make a show of patting you on the back and say "Good job, ol' sport" but pretty much half-heartedly and then turn around and hope everyone forgets all about this without asking too many questions.

 

The Principi as a whole, as opposed to certain individuals, is rabidly anti-slaver so naturally Aedyls singing your praises will give you a boost with them as well.

Forgot about something, actually.  It was reported earlier that the quest "Fruitful Alliance" (for the Huana) might be bugged if you wipe out the slavers before getting that quest from the Queen.

I haven't gotten that questline yet and I don't know if it's cleared up in the latest patch or not.

 

So if one is planning on doing the Fruitful Alliance quest, might want to wait on wiping out the slavers until then.  Lots of discussion about the bug here: https://forums.obsid...on-blocking-bug

I happened upon Crookspur randomly and after finding the imprisoned Huana inside went about slaughtering all the slavers within (this was before 1.1 came out - still haven't finished the game yet).

I hadn't gotten too deeply into any of the faction quests but learned that killing the slavers breaks various faction quests with the Principi or Valian Trading Company.

Can someone confirm whether this is the case?

I was looking to support the Valians later down the line as I'd just completed the one in the bathhouse where you are disguised as attendants. Was wondering when the next quest from Castol would drop but I'm wondering if my killing of the slavers has messed things up...

I just randomly kill everyone on that island regardless whom I side with but never noticed it forbidding siding with any faction. People like Furante can dislike it but there are always Replacement Placeholder NPCs TM which help you anyway.

 

As for Vailians, you gotta progress through main plot to get next quest.
