The Deep Fat Friars still require your assistance. You can find them in the Distant Woods.

Friars' Text

Please see Talk to the Deep Fat Friars.


  • The cleansing ritual does not cost an adventure and can be done while falling-down drunk.
  • You don't need to talk to the Friars at all during the quest.


  • "Taint" generally refers to an unpleasant contaminant of some kind. In US English, however, it can also refer to the perineum, very unpleasant if tainted.
  • Each of the items needed to cleanse the taint are common tools used in Wiccan ritual: candles, an athame (a ritual knife), and a pentagram (or in this case, a dodecagram).
  • The concept of opening the gates of Hell follows the witchcraft theme, as those accused of witchcraft were traditionally said to be in league with demons.
  • "Brother Marx" is a reference to the Marx Brothers.
