Dragon's Dogma Achievements

The Patron

Helped Madeleine open her shop.   

Begin by speaking to Madeleine at the inn in Cassardis after defeating the Hydra at the beginning of the game. She will ask you to escort her to the encampment. Do so without her dying and she will ask for 1,000 gold to start her own business. Give her the 1,000 gold.

Once you've reached Gran Soren, complete the quest "A Matter of Myrmidons". Now you should be able to find a man named Mason in the Fountain Square sometime during the day. This is the man who spoke to you when you first entered Gran Soren. If you don't find him in the Fountain Square, complete a couple quests while you wait or try sleeping at the inn.

When you do find him, you can start the quest "Chasing Shadows". Stay at the inn until nightfall, then make your way up the hill to the Noble Quarters. Now follow the knight to the abandoned house. Speak with Arsmith to complete "Chasing Shadows". Try sleeping or exiting then re-entering Gran Soren so her shop is no longer called "Abandoned House". Now speak to her and the achievement will unlock.

Some people have mentioned they got the achievement without escorting Madeleine. That didn't work for me and you will need to escort her for The Hero achievement anyway, but you can try speaking to her if you missed the escort quest and completed "Chasing Shadows".

Got it after resting, then talking to her again. Her dialog changes and the achievement popped.

Initially she starts at the Encampment. Then she moves to the southeast area of Gran Soren. Close by the Black Cat shop.

at the start of the game -after you become the arisen of course- you will find an inn towards the city gate and the well where you meet Rook. Go into the inn and on your right should be the notice board and right beside it should be Madeleine and she'll ask you to escort her after initiating a second dialogue- you take her to the encampment and then she'll ask for 1,000G and you give it to her, DONE. Go to Gran Soren and find her shop. xP

Make sure you do the quest "Chasing Shadows." After I did it, I waited a couple in game days and saw her in a house/store very close to the Black Cat shop. Go in the store and talk to her and you should get it.

Is "Chasing Shadows" quest misable? I can't find Mason even though I've waited in Fountain Square for 2 game days. Checking this thread I found out that I can't start "Bad Business" until I do this quest. Am I SOL? I did Mason's first quest re: Salvation and I'm now very near the end-game.

is this possible on play through 2 or 3? because i definitely didn't look at the cheevs until after i had already passed this point and told her to piss off when she asked for the money

The achievement unlocked when I talked to her in her ship in Gran Soren.

The problem I had was not killing the leader of Salvation when doing the Seeking Salvation quest. Mason then essentially told me what a waste of space I was and that our "relationship" was through. He then killed him himself and that was the last i saw of Mason.

i also tried resting and it didnt pop. it helped me out when i left gran soren and came back so it could "reload" i guess. its first called the "abandoned house" but when i went back it was "madeleines shop" i then talked to her the DING! hope this helps

I did the same thing with the leader of Salvation. Didn't kill him and Mason told me to do one.

Uhm, I have done the Salvation quest. I killed the leader, I think. In any case, I've now spoken to Maximillien (or whatever). Since doing that, Mason has gone off the grid - I cant find him anywhere, not in the Abbey, Slums or Square. I've been to each place day and night and nothing... All I want to do is 'chasing shadows'.
