This quest is picked up from a ghost called Lillian who can be found in the Black Cove.

Her father, headless Nick had his head removed by the pirates. She asks you to return it to her father if you find it.


You will have to complete Warming The Crowd before you can finish this quest. The alternative is to perform yourself and steal the crowd (Enhanced Edition only). See Warming The Crowd Notes. *

  1. Steal Nick's Head from the stage. (935xp)
  2. Enter Reginald's house. There's a trapdoor underneath the rug, leading to the cellar.
    • You can find the key to his house in one of the boxes surrounding Thelyron's House.
  3. (Optional) Read Reginald's Diary. (935xp)
  4. Speak to the head, and learn that he desires to be reunited with his body again. (2100xp)
  5. Head to the Black Cove's Derelict Harbour.

    1. If you have killed Pontius, this is where the quest ends.

*If this was completed without passing the RPS check, this quest can be completed by killing Reginald or by using a smoke grenade to obscure his vision. If the decision is made to kill Reginald, it's best to kill Reginald in an indirect way (teleportation or barrel) to avoid other casualties.

(After learning of Nick's Head's desire) We took Nick's head to the cellar, where he asked us to reunite him with his body in the Black Cove.

(After talking to Katarina) The fair owner, Katarina, said we can put on a show if we find some interesting material to perform.

(After reading 'Cracking up a Crowd: the Definitive Guide') We found a book listing some tried and true jokes. Maybe we can put it to good use.
