Bring him a Skull
Before you can talk to the astrologer you have to talk to Gerry and ask him about the astrologer.
The Keepers Journal
After asking for help to open the portal in order to get home, he will request you to retrieve the previous
keepers journal and will give you the
keepers key which is meant to be able to unlock the gate below the church though he does not know how to use it. For the information on how to use the
keepers key, you first need to talk with Snake about it and then study it on the study table. After you opened the gate you will have access to the
Clean the Journal
After handing over the
Keepers journal he tells you to visit the town to acquire the parts for building a laser to open the portal on Witch Hill. He also tells you that part of the
Keepers journal is covered in goo(?) and he needs some
acid to clean it, which can be acquired from Clotho. Alternatively you can craft it in the alchemy workbench (tier II). For more information see alchemy.
Once you acquire the items to clean the journal and bring them to the astrologer, he discovers in the diary that he might have a long-lost daughter (and the info you needed as well). He wants you to get information about his family in exchange for what you want to know. He tells you that the Gypsy Baron is Esmeralda's (the mother) brother, and wants you to go and ask inquire about her. You can find the Baron at the camp, north-west of the lighthouse.
After doing the Gypsy Baron a favour, he tells you of Esmeralda and her child's fate. The astrologer gets emotional when you tell him about Esmeralda's fate and that her daughter is alive and well. You earn another 10 by that. He gives you another task before giving you the information you need: You are to speak to Ms. Charm and find out if she knows about her father.
Ms. Charm makes very clear to you that she despises her father, whoever he might be, and that she doesn't want to know of him or his identity at all. The astrologer takes the news with a heavy heart, but insists that there must be a way to gain her forgiveness. You tell him you'll let him know if you get any news. You'll earn 10 from this conversation.
The Golden Angle
You should have 60 with him now, so you can finally ask about the three parts of the barrel. The astrologer tells you he had one of the required items (the
golden angle) in a sealed University bag, but he abandoned it the day of the Great Blast around the war camp. He believes nobody would dare break the University seal and suggests you go look for it.
Ms. Charm asks you to help Vagner. Since you don't have an access to the Fort, you decide to seek the assistance of astrologer and earn 10 by that. He gladly agrees to help, hoping that this act would grant him forgiveness on part of his estranged daughter. But getting inside the Fort is not an easy task. The astrologer, however, has a plan - you all could get inside to 'continue' the archaeological dig, that was started years ago but never finished. In order to do that, though, he needs your help in repairing his reputation in the University.
Silver Book or Research Obsidian
In order to restore old astrologer's reputation you need to bring him a
Book for 5 . After that you will have to wait a week, until he returns with the news.
Alternatively, if you own the Stranger Sins DLC, you can bring him the Research Obsidian - just note that this will void the achievement / trophy "Best Seller" as it skips the step where you give him a gold-quality Book.
It turns out your book was a breath of fresh air for the bored eggheads in the University. So much so, that now they demand more! So, naturally, it's up to you to give them one. Bring a
Book for 5 , and - again - wait a week for the results.
Bring Aristocrat Papers
With these amazing books, the astrologer was not only successful in organizing the new expedition - he was even reinstated as a professor. Not that it matters to him (or you, for that matter). But now almost everything is ready for the new expedition. All that's left is the access to the Fort. And for that
Aristocrat papers are needed. Bring them to the astrologer for 10 , and as soon as it's done, you can start final part of his (and connected Ms. Charm's) quest.
