Vision from Auren Vrood’s Decapitated Head
The devil Bargain, rips Auren Vrood’s head from it’s body and plants it on a spike. He takes Sedeptra’s hand and lays it upon the head and she watches in mute horror as blood and gore drip from the severed neck suddenly her vision is filled with a series bright silver flashes. Suddenly she sees
a furiously darting ink quill that dashes out of a stream of words reading, “My Master,
I shall stay in Feldgrau and build an army of corpses for our risen lord…”
The sentence fades, and after a brief flash, hands place the letter in an envelope and
strike it with a Whispering Way wax seal.
Another flash comes and the scene changes. You see cultists scurrying around in the
town square, exhuming bodies and raising an army from the corpses of Feldgrau’s dead.
After another flash, Vrood’s hands place 5 strange items into a chest—
an iron-and-glass vial containing a swirling gray mist, a bloody heart inside a glass bottle, a crystal shard glowing blood red with black streaks swirling around it, a ragged collection of parchment as if pages torn from a book, and a fragile skull composed of hundreds of bone fragments. Into a second chest he places a strange statuette of murky green stone
depicting a grotesque, tentacled creature.
Another f lash.
The chests are given to two riders in dark cloaks on pale horses. “Ride to Thrushmoor,” you hear Vrood’s voic speak. “Our agent will exchange the Effigy for the last relic
we need while our other agents acquire the second to last piece in Carrion Hill. After a final flash, the visions fade.
