Chapter 8


Maximilian…my husband…taken by the evil lord, Decimus. We must make our way into the Catacombs, vanquish the Tenebrous leaders, and find those responsible for this Undead uprising. We will put an end to their unholy crusade soon. There are reports of a waypoint opening within Childe’s Tomb. Our path into the Catacombs may begin there.
--Commander Selan


The fifth stone is within reach, Warriors. Those from the deepest darkness, Darkspire, are making their way into Drakulvhamn once again. There is a waypoint within these dark caves, and our enemies are once again sending reinforcements to reclaim Drakulvhamn. The only way they could create such a rift powerful enough to travel through space instantly is with a stone of power. Find the waypoint, defeat the Darkspire lords, and claim the final stone. Then, we head into the Sanctum to find Garmr! Make haste!
--Oracle Sabna


Salle is still gone, but that doesn’t mean the Abagath march will slow! We have found the Life Stone, and with it, we are one stone away from beginning our march into the Catacombs. There is an opening within this rift, Heroes! My scouts report that the Marrach, Glimmer, and Darkspire are launching one final assault to reclaim this portion of the Veil. I leave it to you to stop them. Let us hope Salle is back before long with information on our stones of power.
--General Riarona

A Dragon’s Curse (Chapter 8)

  • The campaign continues! The factions of the Catacombs and the Darkspire lords launch a final assault on their lost lands!

Other fixes:

  • The aurulite Mauler staff, caster staff, and small shield are now sold at the proper 35% quality, 100% condition, and 100% durability.
  • Vulcan’s health, damage, and the rate he spawns fires have been reduced for Albion’s Chapter 7 encounter.
  • The melee and magic resistance buffs in Vampiir’s Dementia specialization should now co-exist with all other resistance type spells (or stack with ones they previously stacked with).
  • The Astral Kinetic Hammer’s damage absorption buff should now apply correctly in Midgard.
  • The Friar’s Tranquility damage reduction buff should now apply correctly to the group.

Chapter 7


The Dream Stone is ours. I have never before seen such power from a single object. Truly, an object of wonder…and I fear the power of the other stones now that I have seen this one. If what we know of the Life Stone is true, then I fear the Tenebrous have long since brought Albion’s worst enemy back into the forefront.
--Commander Selan


Warriors of Midgard, I leave the conquest of the Life Stone in your hands. I must venture further into the sanctum of the legendary Drakulv for the ancient power of Drakulv Kings. I know I can count on you to stop whatever the Dark Dragon has planned.
--Garmr, King of the Drakulv


Salle is journeying within the Veil to locate the Dark Dragon’s lair. In the meanwhile, it is up to us to stop the madness in Sheeroe Hills in your home of Hibernia. The Glimmer and Marrach are still at large, and they have used the Life Stone to resurrect some of our deadliest of enemies. It is up to us to end them and retrieve the stone. After what you and I have been through together inside the Dream, I will be there with you in this war, always. Our people are now inseparable allies.
--General Riarona of the Abagath Dark Elves

A Dragon’s Curse (Chapter 7)
  • The campaign continues! The Life Stone has the power to resurrect the realm’s most evil enemies!
  • Venture once again into Dartmoor, Malmohus, and Sheeroe Hills to defeat the Dragons! They have returned, and this time, they have help!

Chapter 6

     The Dream Stone is upon us. Its power is said to be unmatched of the five. IF we can use its power for good, for what is right, then the Tenebrous will fall and our next step will be to reclaim Darkspire and liberate the Undead.
--Commander Selan
     I am now King of the Drakulv, thanks to your help. There is something I wish to show you, it is a sanctuary of the Drakulv . Only the Drakulv are allowed to enter, and only the most esteemed. For you, I will make it the first exception. Meet me within Drakulvhamn, there is still work to be done.
--Garmr, King of the Drakulv
     The new alliance between Hibernia and the Abagath Dark Elves is a breath of fresh air for us in the Veil, and quite literally! The Rift has been taken, we have won it from the Marrach. Next, we venture further into the rift. A new waypoint has been opened, and inside is what we have been looking for. Come to me, and I will show you the way.
--Prince Reynarch, Leader of the Abagath

Chapter 5

     Daila has forged our weapons. We can now strike the enemies from Darkspire and pierce their magical shield. It is time to reclaim Albion from the Tenebrous and prepare ourselves to move within the Catacombs. Once we defeat their leaders, Dartmoor will once again be safe.
--Commander Selan
     Warriors of Midgard! I have gone on a short journey since we last spoke. I have been into the Catacombs, passed the Burial Grounds, and into the Glashtin Forge. Freki and I searched for a smith capable of such miracles. I have the Soul Weapons. We can now defeat the Drakulv King and reclaim Drakulvhamn! It begins now!
--Garmr, leader of the Drakulv Rebellion
     Heroes, my sister, Sayri, has returned to Sheeroe Hills. She has been in the depths of Hibernia, and she is leading the Glimmer to build something…terrible. I fear Mother has gotten into her head again, and when Sayri listens to Mother, bad things happen! With our Soul Weapons, we can face Sayri and her terrors. We must stop her, for the good of a renewed Hibernia.
--Salle, the Glimmer Fairy

Chapter 4

      As the outlook brightens within the dark tomb, Commander Selan is pushing the offensive forth into ending the Tenebrous uprising. Rackham, the first of the Undead to betray the Tenebrous and seek out Albion for aid, knows of a way to use the Soul Stone’s remaining power.
      With Oracle Sabna now a part of the Drakulv Revolution, the pillar of leadership begins to sway amongst the Drakulv rebels. However, this will not stop Garmr and his crusade to liberate the Varulv kind from their cursed masters. He will work with the Oracle, who has discovered a way of forging weapons made with soul magic, if it means he will no longer serve the ancient evils of Midgard’s troubled past.
      The Veil is home to all sorts of magic and terrors, and Prince Reynarch of Abagathar finally has his opportunity to make his mark in Dark Elven history with the defeat of the Glimmer. To that end, their Glimmer Fairy ally has thus far delivered unremarkable aid to the Abagathar Dark Elves – and she continues to do so. Salle cautiously offers the Resistance a way to create soul weapons – but with a warning; this magic is evil, and using it can have unknown consequences…
A Dragon’s Curse (Chapter 4)
The campaign continues! Gather the souls of your fallen enemies! 
To start Chapter 4:

  • Note: You will need the Blood Stone to complete coming chapters.

  • On Midgard: Defeating the Blood God in Priestess Aiyana’s Shrine will always award players who are missing their Blood Stone with a replacement. The Blood God will always spawn for players who have completed the Chapter 2 quest, ‘The Blood Stone’, by defeating Priestess Aiyana.

Chapter 3

    Commander Selan has heard no mention of the next magic stone, but there is word of an unexpected ally from within Childe’s Tomb. Artemelis, Selan’s trusted companion, has met with the tomb’s keeper, and he is willing to provide Selan with valuable information that may tip the tide in Albion’s favor.
    With Garmr and his men investigating the location of the next magic stone, Sigrun and Theso have learned of a Drakulv traitor within Drakulvhamn. This traitor, a highly influential and respected Oracle of the Drakulv, has agreed to meet with a hero of Midgard and show them the potential of the Soul Stone’s true power.
    Salle the Glimmer Fairy continues to prove a valuable ally, as she has discovered the dormant power within your Soul Stone. Speak to her by calling her with her flute, and she’ll explain how Hibernia can harness the stone’s ominous might.
If you lose Salle’s flute, you can receive a new one by speaking with Salle in the Rift.

Chapter 2

    We've finally broken through the barriers and have laid the uncharted tunnels open for exploration. If what Rackham says is true about the Soul Stone, I fear we may already be too late to stop the plans of the Tenebrae. Nonetheless, our next move is planned. Make haste to me.
--- Commander Selan
    The incessant wind has finally stopped. We can now venture deeper into these treachorous tunnels. If the Soul Stone was an indication of the riches to be found, we of the Frozen Torch are destined to more glory, fame, and wealth than I first thought. Garmr's prattling about some ceremony be damned; there's a dragon's treasure hoard down here and we'll be the ones to take it.
--Theso of the Frozen Torch
    The Abagath have finished their work with the energy barriers, I can finally lead you further into The Veil. I will be by your side to guide you in this place, for there are many dangers. Nothing matters compared to our search for the dragon eggs. We must find them, for Hibernia!

Chapter 1

    I said I would call upon you again and now I have. Together with our new Undead allies, we have found the stronghold of the Tenebrae. They make base in an ancient tomb deep within Dartmoor, one whose legends tell of an old hunter who died here in a snowstorm. What a different place Albion was back then. Meet me here, and with our new allies we can begin to end this Undead threat.
--- Commander Selan
    It is time, adventurers. The glory, fame, and riches we have for so long been chasing finally are within reach. It is time to invade Drakulvhamn, home of the nasty Varulv that aided Gjapinulva. There are bound to be riches inside – and the Frozen Torch will be the ones to claim them.
--Theso of the Frozen Torch
    At first, I was uneasy about betraying my kind, the Glimmer. But now, I see the good in the world, the good in Hibernia. There is a phenomenon occurring, one that hasn’t been seen in decades. The Veil has once again opened, leading to what is one of the infinite rifts inside of it. The opening is in Sheeroe Hills, and this must be more than mere coincidence. The dragon eggs must be involved. Meet me inside – I will be waiting for you.
--Salle, the Glimmer Fairy

A Dragon's Curse (Prologue)

  • In case you haven't completed the Prologue yet...
There is an un...easy tension stirring in Albion. Commander Selan and her companions, King Constantine’s chosen heroes, have been given authority over this unusual phenomenon. There is quite the uproar occurring near Albion’s grand church. Find Commander Selan and speak to her!
Roshak has been assigned to investigate the distrubance in Malmohous by King Eirik and is ruminating on who should lead the expedition. Theso, leader of an unruly band of treasure hunters and scoundrels known as the Frozen Torch, is now leading the forefront to find lost Midgard relics. The only way to stop these treasures from falling into the wrong hands is to find them first, and that’s just what Sigrun of the Shield of Valhalla, a sect of Valkyries and other soldiers loyal to Midgard’s ancestry, plans to do. Visit Roshak in the Assembly Hall and then find Sigrun and Theso arguing near the Burial Grounds in Jordheim.
The Veil has become unstable, and we’ve dispatched Hibernian Magi to try and quell the disruption. On top of that, a Glimmerling has ventured from Sheeroe Hills and has come to Tir Na Nog seeking an alliance in regards to the unstable rift. The Glimmer working with Hibernia is a rare occurrence indeed, and is worth at least hearing out this messenger. Our Tailtiu allies have escorted the Glimmer here, and Supreme Eldritch Cystilla has been assigned to oversee the matter at the rift's entrance.
