Whilst the party are in Normu’s End, trying to gather information on their respective quests, a dark hooded figure riding on a skeletal horse bursts into town. This is when they first meet Lord Gaius. He explains that apparitions have been appearing recently and have grown increasingly violent. He agrees to answer all their questions in return for helping track the apparitions and dealing with them.
The party travels to an old keep that has fallen apart. They must battle through an army of skeletons to find Arthus, who has threatened Lord Gaius. There they learn about his last mission to stop the heretic Normu ascending into godhood. They also learn about Yumara’s Spoken, Yumara‘s followers and soldiers.
