Rumors have surfaced of a ghastly creature from the Plane of Life wreaking havoc on the land. These reports say that it is as hideous in appearance as it is frightening in combat. You would be best advised to assemble a small group, track down this creature, and bring it to a quick end.
The Aelfwar are using the power within the dragon motes to transform themselves into these abominations. With the dragon motes, the cults will raise unstoppable armies to overwhelm us. You see now why we must keep this power out of their hands.
