One of the missions on which the player must embark during the first third of the game involves convincing Weran to aid The Front by providing access to a hidden access point in The Order's castle so that the player can destroy the shield generators and open up the castle to a frontal assault by Macil's forces. He agrees to the task in exchange for a suit of acolyte armor with a respirator, needed for his people to scavenge food from above ground. He also helps the player by offering a large quantity of weapons, ammo, gold, and other useful items.
