Mission One: The Temptation

The Necromancer decides to use the situation to his advantage, pursuing goals obscure to all but himself by joining Queen Isabel in an alliance. He must traverse lands guarded by Wizards to reach the frontiers of the Empire.

Mission Two: The Attack

An alliance is made between Markal and Isabel, a pact between the dead and the living. The next step in the Necromancer's scheme is to visit Lorekeep. Once a hive of Necromantic activity in the Griffin Empire, this city was destroyed by fanatic knights. Its lands are now in the keeping of the Mages of the Silver Cities, Markal's mortal enemies.

Mission Three: The Invasion

Markal is facing a new task: He must obtain the other three artifacts required to create the Vampire's Garment. They are the Staff of the Netherworld, the Cloak of Death's Shadow, and the Ring of the Unrepentant. To do this he must seize the Silver Cities and defeat three great Mages, each of whom possesses one of those artifacts.

Mission Four: The Regicide

Markal needs to find Cyrus in the magical reality of the Ring of the Unrepentant, defeat him, and capture this last element of the Vampire's Garment. He has not forgotten that it was Cyrus's troops who occupied Heresh and killed his master, Sandro.

Mission Five: The Lord of Heresh

Markal is almost ready to recreate the Vampire's Garment. The only thing that remains to be done is to take the Necromancer's Amulet from Godric and go to the Hall of Heroes, where Nicolai's body lies. There, Markal will perform the Rite of the Night to bring the dead king back into this world.
