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.

Find and restore Lorekeep
Now that Markal has enlisted the support of the Empire, it is time to proceed to the next phase of his plan.
Lorekeep, the great city of necromantic magic, lies in ruins. Only there can Markal hope to find the ancient knowledge of the artifacts needed to revive King Nicolai. To restore Lorekeep, Markal will need to build a Citadel.
Capture Hikm
One of the artifacts currently lies in the city of Hikm. The capture of that city will not only bring the Amulet into Markal's posession, but also will start his war of vengeance against the Wizards of the Silver Cities.
Markal and Godric must survive
Markal and Godric must survive in order to reach their goal and continue on.
