Quest stages of Troubled Waters
1. Collaring Sourcerer
Talk to Magister Siwan, who is in the same room as you are. He will tell you what you should do next.
We have been told to look for Magister William at the stern of the ship in order to be registered. Perhaps we can explore a little, before we go to him.
2. Crime Scene
Talk to Magister Waters in the cabin where the corpse lies on the floor.
A fellow Sourcerer has been discovered murdered - we've been told we'll receive a gold piece as reward if we bring back evidence to Magister Waters regarding who did it.
3. Ate Victim Limb
Your character has to be an elf. You need to eat the Chunk Of Flesh which can be find in the corpse of the victim.
After consuming the flesh of the victim, we saw how he was attacked by an old woman.
4. William and Windego
A fellow Sourcerer named Windego confessed to the killing. She also implied that we share something in common with her target... before we could learn more, she somehow triggered a huge explosion. We have to get out of here - it might be wise to find weapons in case there's more dangers ahead.

5. Middle Deck Carnage
Use the stairs (To the Middle Deck) to get to the middle deck.
We have made it to the middle deck. The ship is badly damaged - possibly even sinking. We have to keep moving.

6. Cowering Magisters
Persuade (need 1 or more Persuasion skill points) two magisters located in the cabin at the stern - Magisters Murtof and Ricks.
*Tell him there is no mutiny. You almost died at this woman's hands!*
*Tell him Magister Siwan is injured; she asked you to go find help.*
If you fail then you will have to kill them. The door to the room (Door) is locked, but you can use your weapon and easily destroy it.
I encountered some Magisters who have survived thus far. I convinced them to let me pass.
7. Death Fog
One of the cabins seems to have become infested with tentacles and some sort of lethal fog. We should keep our distance.
Corpse of Priest Medwyn
The ship is being attacked by a gigantic kraken. It looks intent on pulling the entire vessel to the bottom of the sea - we have to escape.

9. Ending #1: Fled
Talk to the passengers of the Lifeboat and choose an immediate escape.
*Reach for the release mechanism. Forget the others; you just want off this bloody ship.*
*Insist that there's no time to spare. Enter the boat and lower it into the chilly sea.*
The result will be ...
We managed to escape the ship. Anyone who still remained on board must have surely perished.
10. Go Rescue Origins
If you decided to save other passengers the you should go to the lower deck (use To the Lower Deck) and help other Sourcerers. You will together kill a few Viscous Voidlings.
You can also try to help Magister Siwan.
We are going to check the lower deck for survivors. No-one deserves to die like this.

11. Ending #2: Rescued
Help Sourcerers, don't try to save Magister Siwan, and return to the main deck. Try to reach the boat, you will be knocked down and you will not be able to get in but you will survive.
Some other Sourcerers have abandoned the ship, while we ourselves just managed to escape in the nick of time..
12. Ending #3: Failed
Help sourcerers, and try to save Magister Siwan. You will not be able to save him, but no one will blame you for not trying to save him. Kraken will destroy the ship but you will survive.
The kraken has dragged the ship to the depths. We survived - just barely.
After completing Troubled Waters you will get or will be able to get The Escape.
