My mission is to go back to khemeria to find and kill the wizard responsible for the shadow beast. Of course, it was obvious to me from the last time I was there that Moritz’Kri, the adviser to lord Carsta’Arl was the culprit, but I didn’t have any proof. This time, I knew for sure that a wizard was involved, so I confronted the lord immediately. After realizing there is no way to get out of it, be turned over Moritz’Kri. That is, he allowed me to arrest him, but didn’t want to get involved directly. The wizard attacked me and I managed to defeat him, but he teleported away before I could deliver the final blow. I ended up chasing him all over Oghrym’Tor and finally cornered him in the cellars of his castle wing, but again, he managed to teleport to safety, this time to his tower in Dorla Woods.
On my way there, I was forced to kill the patrol that was assigned to guard his tower. It was obvious they didn’t want to fight, but they were more scared of him than of me. After lots and lots of fighting throughout his tower, I finally found him trying to summon a demon lord – Beloch, the Scourge. The ritual was almost complete, and the demon was almost loose, but for the final part, Moritz’Kri needed a human sacrifice. Foolishly, he tried to use me for that, and this cost him greatly. I defeated him one last time and the demon took him back to his realm. Of course, the demon is pretty much loose now, with only a faint power binding him to the portal and it’s only a matter of time before he’s completely free. Still, he was way to powerful for me to defeat him at that point, so I was forced to retreat. In any case, my mission was over.
On a side note, I encountered the Wayfarer again, but this time he didn’t have any suspicious task for me. He only warned me that this incident will be the beginning of the end for Dhorl Stead. Once the eye of Avadon focuses on something, it rarely looks away before it’s destroyed.
I returned back to Avadon only to find out that my warrior, whose name escapes me again is gone. The ambush that earned him his scar was tormenting him far to much and he decided to go to the White Plains of Kva, find his attacker and deal with him. After talking to my superiors, I realized my next mission is also taking me to Kva, so I guess it’s two for one this time. Kva it is!
