To the east of Pariah Abbey the hills crawl with scamp and cultist. A group of Supernal Dreamers have managed to open numerous portals through which the vile scamps spew forth from Vaermina’s realm.
In a nearby cave, the brother of the Abbot is magically bound. Partially possessed by Daedric spirit, only his strength of will holds back the eventual and inevitable; he bravely councils his own death.
A decision needs to be made, one life for another, to honour a willing sacrifice or to kill an indoctrinated fool.
Perhaps it is that as a soldier I too have succumbed to indoctrination as much as the fool, but I cannot resolve beyond my conviction that one cannot hide from consequence behind ignorance, nor mitigate repercussion; thus the fool dies.
As I step through the portal into Quagmire to face Vaermina’s pet, I ponder my own repercussions, and wonder who will be judge of my ignorance.
