The clues are found with Cyrix and Cappen Varra:
Cappen Varra chuckles in response to a question from a bystander. 'Yes, everyone keeps asking me about the legends concerning that sword, but I know little more than you do.'
Cappen Varra says, 'According to an old manuscript I saw as a youth, such a sword once existed. It wasn't a particularly reliable manuscript, though -- it was one of the most inaccurate histories of the land that I've ever seen. For what it's worth, it claimed that creation of the sword required seven songs, seven magical items, and seven of some five other things I can't recall. But all I remember beyond that is that just thinking about it made me want seven cups of mead!'
Cyrix glances up at you, then goes back to typing. "I don't have time to chat with you right now. Need to find that singing sword."
Cyrix pulls out some hair, bangs his head on the desk, mutters under his breath, and returns to work, pointedly ignoring you.
Cyrix glances up at you again. "Do you know where to find the enchanted hammer? Didn't think so. Useless, they're all useless." He returns to his frantic typing, muttering under his breath.
Cyrix mutters as he types, "No one has even heard of Calydone. ' Everything else is here, everything but the keys. Not just a legend, can't be just a legend, must find it all."
