    You play the mission "Quest For An Ancient Relic". During which you will be asked from whence life began. Answer "the cradle" for one relic and the next time you get it select "the grave" for the other and the cheevo will pop.

    SchinderdivI voted negatively on your solution, for the following reasons:

    1 - it is too vague (and misleading), there needs to be more detail. There are plenty of helpful comments from users in here that should be added to make it less vague.

    2 - from my experience of trying to get this achievement for quite a while now, I have come to the conclusion that it needs to be in 2 separate playthroughs. In 1 playthrough you will be given a choice of choosing either cradle/grave as your answer and the second part to that particular ancient relic quest will be finding the relic relating to that answer. If you start a new playthrough and say "the cradle" again it doesn't work. I have gone dozens upon dozens of turns before fighting Gargos in SL and have never had a second set of ancient relic quests pop up.

    Also, from my experience, the teams listed above to "immediately" receive this set of quests never worked. My teams never got the ancient relic quests until turn 17, as another user above also mentioned.

    To summarize what worked for me - on the 17th turn, the first set of ancient relic quests appeared (Ancient Relic 1/2), I answered "the cradle", and the next turn (turn 18) I got another ancient relic quest (Ancient Relic 2/2) which gave me a special item. The team I used that playthrough was Sadira, Spinal and Mira. I then started a new SL playthrough with Hisako, Glacius and Riptor. Again, on the 17th turn the next set of ancient relic quests appeared (again labeled Ancient Relic 1/2), I answered "the grave", and the next turn (again turn 18) I got another ancient relic quest (this time called Cursed Relic 2/2) which gave me another special item, and the achievement.

    If you update your solution to be more comprehensive and less misleading, let me know and I'll change my vote to a positive.

    You need to get the quest "Rumors for an Ancient Relic 1/2". Usually comes up around turns 15-20 range. After the match, the guardian you defeated asks you to "Speak the Place Whence Life Begins" you have 2 choices. You can choose "The Cradle" or "The Grave". Each choice gives you another quest for the next turn. Choosing "Cradle" gives you the "Divine Relic 2/2" quest. Choosing "Grave" gives you the "Cursed Relic 2/2" quest. You need to complete both relic quests for the achievement. This can't be done in one playthrough, so pick one choice and then start another playthrough. When the "Rumors of an Ancient Relic" quest can comes up again, make the other choice.
