Keepers... I can't seem to avoid them no matter how hard I try. It took all of my patience to get some sense out of the man. It seems the Keepers' prophecies speak of another dangerous book, one that they've tasked me to recover... for a price of course.
Some years ago, three brothers got their hands on the Book of Thorn, a volume of blood magic and one of the sister tomes to the Book of Ash. Deep in their ancestral mountain fastness of Ravensreach, the brothers argued and fought over who should get to use the Book's unholy powers.
Reaching a stalemate, they locked the Book away deep beneath their stronghold, and agreed that none of them would act until the others were dead. There the brothers and their retinues remained, each locked in his own part of the fortress, each plotting to outlive his fellows and secure the book, while to the outside world, the fortress of Ravensreach became known as a haunted place, dared by none.
Recently, a party of heroic adventurers, led by the celebrated knight Sir Haldorn Redcloak, vowed to rid the fortress of its evil presence. For the Keepers, whether they succeed or fail is of little consequence; what matters is that the Book of Thorn doesn't come to light and begin spreading its
corrupting influence once more.
My task is to follow Sir Haldorn's trail and recover the Book of Thorn before it's unearthed by less careful hands than mine...
