So, if you’ve read previous posts, you know that I (Annora) stumbled upon an experimental Blight ritual in Farghast Forest, Alisandria. Also, Kanas and a Mr. Droffrock are missing. Maria and Tari scryed Kanas, and found that he was held captive in much the same type of ritual as I found.
So far, we’ve found two hotspots of Blight activity. One in Alisandria, one in Ostcliff near Valenro. Kanas is not in Alisandria, so he is either at the Ostcliff location, or at a 3rd location we have not yet sensed (because these fartfaced asswaffles never make this easy).
Once we find where this ritual is, we will need to undo it in order to free Kanas. If our theories are correct, it is VITALLY IMPORTANT that we extricate Kanas from the ritual first before dismantling it. This ritual could do far worse than kill him.
Maria and I have been discussing ritual plans, and we’d be glad to share them with those who are accompanying us.
If our theory is correct, the skinwalkers are specifically using druids/druidic casters for these rituals. We think they’re trying to corrupt druids’ connection to Arawyn and turn it to blight, feeding blight energy directly into Arawyn. So watch yourselves, especially those with druidic abilities.
The skinwalkers know us. They know what Kanas means to us. He’s obviously bait. We’re definitely going to spring a trap. So those who are coming, be prepared to defend and fight. Blight is weak to Primal energy. If you can’t utilize that, either buddy up with someone who can temporarily grant you that, or grab something made of amber. Those who are staying behind, keep your eyes peeled in case this is a misdirection.
Narcis, your presence and knowledge will definitely be welcome. And hopefully Melarus can help with the cleanup.
I believe Maria tends to sit with a different school of ritual thought than I. While I am mostly tagging along to make sure no aberrant druidics (as you say Blight) remain post dismantling the ritual. (Honestly Melarus needs a snack) That being said, unless you tell me where and how to assist I will focus my abilities on my martial capacities given I now focus on Arcane and Aether magics and I don't want to introduce awkward variables into your probably druidic ritual. -Narcissus
As an aside, we aren't sure where the ritual is, nor when we'll be able to find it. The note about Primal energy is for people to be prepared once we do figure out where this is. This post is not suggesting we go out now, far from it. As Trickster has said. We need to be prepared.
