Seeking power through undeath. Whoever wrote this speaks of a potential threat. Either one that they intend to bring or one they know of. Whatever this strange prophecy is, it needs to be prevented from coming to pass.
These stones seem to cause a scream of agony as the soul is denied it's place in the afterlife. I am just now learning of these things after confronting and defeating a man who used them in the Minotaur's maze. I believe his name was Arthur, but he fought with dishonor so I did not commit his name to record after defeating him. The law demanded I turn them over so I did and they asked me to help hunt down more users and dealers of these abominations. As this go hand in hand with the protection of the flow of souls I have agreed. Any leads on where to seek out some of these defilers would be appreciated. They deserve no mercy.
Walking around I spawned 4 of these in one area along with elite bandit mages and elite bandit archers. These things can still track you, attack you, and see you when you are invisible and at level 10 with barks, shields, blurs, bulls strength, aid, stoneskin and haste, I still had to run from them when two would gang up on me. Didn't help because they followed me no matter what strange pattern I ran in while invisible.
Out of boredom I decided to explore the sewers and see if there was anything I had been missing. Near the end of my search there was a scraping in the shadows and suddenly I was ambushed by three very large and powerful rat men. I was forced into a defensive position, fending off their fangs and claws. It took time to find openings but eventually they fell. They were far from their lake home, hunters. Perhaps it was me they were hunting, for vengeance. Excellent. They may be some of the most worthy warriors I've fought here.
