This is it, [%NAME]! I think I have finally figured out a way to repel magic from the Death Plane. This Death Shield is made from the materials you have brought me, in addition to other reagents. Would you like the honor of testing it out?
What just happened there? Did death energy get through the shield and corrupt that villager?
Obviously, the ritual isn't perfect yet. I'll return to my studies and see if I can figure out what went wrong.
