Word was sent to King Alric within moments of our arrival through the World
Knot and before an hour had passed we were brought before the throne. King Alric
listened intently as Garrick recounted the events leading up to our arrival in
As soon as Garrick was done, King Alric ordered the Seventh Legion through the
World Knot to Scales. They have been instructed to seek out Soulblighter's army
and destroy it now, before it grows any larger.
King Alric is convinced that Soulblighter is searching for a man known as The
Summoner. He says that the birth of a man "who would resurrect the Myrkridia and
visit horrors on the world without equal in history or myth" had been foretold in
an ancient tome called the Total Codex.
All that we know of the Myrkridia comes from old songs and half-forgotten
legends. They are full of horrifying tales of whole armies being devoured and
entire cities being erased from the world. They were eventually defeated by the
hero Connacht, who imprisoned them in a powerful artifact called the Tain.
King Alric says we must travel through the World Knot to Covenant and retrieve
the Total Codex from the newly rebuilt library. He says that with the Codex we
may be able to find The Summoner before Soulblighter can.
According to the journal, a similar expedition was undertaken during the Great
War. It seems ironic that sixty years later, we will be going through the same
World Knot to retrieve the Codex once again.
