The Dead of Night begins immediately following the conclusion of the previous quest. Back in Lostwing, follow the marker to find someone named Quinten. Approach him to start a cutscene.

You'll be given a seal called The Hanged Man. Using this, locate the marked villagers and speak to them to get information. After speaking with them both, follow the marker to find Cid and speak to him, then watch the cutscene.

Next, find Quinten inside the inn and speak to him. After another cutscene, follow the marker to the southeast exit — Cutter's Gate. You'll find yourself in Norvent Valley, a long, linear path with a few items to pick up along the way. There are also some small groups of enemies along the path to deal with.

Once you get closer to Caer Norvent, a cutscene will play. Once it's done, you'll need to fast travel to Caer Norvent itself, concluding the quest.
