Meet With Istiana & Arzagos
These are the next two quests in Bannerlord’s Main Questline. You will have to travel to the residences of Istiana in Epicrotea and Arzagos in Marunath. Istiana and Arzagos will both talk to you about the banner and the empire. Istiana will ask you to rebuild the banner and use it to save the empire, while Arzagos will ask you to rebuild the banner and use it to destroy the empire. Talking to either of them will unlock the quest below, but you will need to talk to both of them and say you support their respective causes to complete the quest below.
Assemble The Dragon Banner
This quest involves finding 3 pieces to rebuild the banner. You already have 1 piece that you found at the start of Bannerlord’s Main Questline. The remaining 2 pieces can be found in hideouts not far from Epicrotea and Marunath, which Istiana and Arzagos will mark for you on your map.
After collecting all 3 pieces, you must choose to return to either Istiana or Arzagos. Remember, Istiana wants to reunite the empire, while Arzagos wants to destroy it. Choose carefully.
Upon informing Istiana and/or Arzagos that you have collected all 3 pieces, you must choose to support an existing imperial fragment (path to save the empire*), join a non-imperial kingdom (path to destroy the empire*), or create a new faction entirely (path to save the kingdom if imperial in culture, path to destroy the empire if non-imperial in culture). Once you have chosen your path, part three will unlock.
*You must present the banner to the faction leader of the faction you intend to join to complete the quest.
