Read the Notice Board (1) outside the tavern for a quest to rid Loc Muinne of Gargoyles. If you don’t have knowledge of gargoyles already you’ll need to read a book about them. Speak with Bras of Ban (2) about that. You’ll also want the books Runes of Power I, Runes of Power II, Runes of Power III and Runes of Power IV.

These books give you examples of how each rune is described. Each rune represents a broad category such as Time, Animal or Sky. You’ll need to activate the runes in a certain order based on a riddle to deactivate the site. Once all 3 sites at #3, #4 and #5 (6 puzzles) have been deactivated the quest will be complete.
