Yep, that's right.

BTW, most of the time you don't need a high persuade skill for the quests because they have multiple ways to solve them. F.e. that agent recruiter quest has other ways too, one of them needs no skill, just money. (But of course if you already made a choice there...)

Yeah I chose to bring him the girl...

Mh well but I need to persuade the jeweler-woman right!? There is no other way for that as greenhornet already mentioned!?

Yes, this chest-quest is among the few quests which definitely needs persuade to solve them.
Also if you'll have *even more* persuade skill you'll have even more choices during this quest. This is one of the game's most complex quests which has at least a dozen ways to complete. : )

Just wanted to say that this was far and away my favourite game on the PocketPC platform; I bought Legacy, Quest and all the expansions. In fact, the game was the only reason I regretted leaving PPC as a platform.

I think that the iPhone version is the best implementation I have seen, particularly with the new ability to speed up the animations and (crucially) walking speed.

The Quest expansion would be brilliant (assuming there's a way to preserve the original maps), and I really hope sales permit conversion of Legacy & the expansions too.

I wonder if there might be a way to reduce battery drain, though; I'm having to stay nearer a charger than I'd like for protracted bouts.

A new Quest expansion would be absolutely fantastic. I've spent hundreds of hours with these games, and haven't regretted one of them (apart from some of the more outrageous puzzles towards the end of Legacy )

Keep going along the path. If you're at a low level, you'll be better off reaching it via the west coast rather than the path. But that's the monastery; the church is due East of the cemetery.
