Of course you can use these three quest treasures. You will have to convince the others to let you have them first though ;)

Just need an Elf and we can get started.

The Emperor gazed at the assembled Lords as he listened to the man crouched before him. They stood impatiently, looking intently upon the frail figure, their eyes filling with rage as his story unfolded. They were restless, uncomfortable at hearing such treachery.
"Listen not to this poison my Lord!"
"Silence!" The Emperor's voice echoed angrily around the vaulted hall. "Teor, though it wounds our hearts, these words we must all hear." The Emperor turned again to the man before him. "Please, continue."
Eshlil looked nervously about him. He glanced again at the Emperor before continuing, his voice low and uncertain.
"Thus I served with Hinsgrim. I have stood within the ranks of the Dark Company and there can be no mistake. Hinsgrim has succumbed to darkness.mm He annd his men have sworn allegiance to Chaos. The Captain of your Elite Guard is your would-be assassin."
No-one dared speak. Many wished to cut Eshlil down, as though this would redeem their dear companion, refute this lie. Yet the spy's words rung true. The Emperor gathered his robe and stood before his council.
"This is a sad day for us all. I have watched Hinsgrim fall from honour. Mentor warned us of this, yet we have been too slow. Hinsgrim has fled beneath the old city along with the Dark Company. The task falls to you my Lords to find heroes that can purge us of this evil."
"By your leave my Lord! Give me but one legion and I shall lead an assault that will rid you of these scum."
"I want no more of my Lords turned against me Lorrie! You are a brave knight but neither you nor your warriors can beat this evil. Find me the men I need, bring me warriors, men of stout heart. Champions! The Dark Company must be destroyed. I want Hinsgrim DEAD!"

---

The Dark Company
"You have been chosen from all the champions whose
names were put forward. The Emperor has commanded
you. Enter the dungeons below the old city, find
Hinsgrim and slay him. Succeed and you will all be
rewarded with a Ring of Brilliance."
