Our attempts to stop Nightfall from happening have failed, but we still have a chance to track down Varesh and stop her from bringing more of Abaddon’s influence into our world.
After my exploration at the Holdings of Chokhin, I was summoned to the princes to talk about Varesh’s next move. The meeting was interrupted by a messenger who said Varesh was attacking the Sebelkeh Basilica. We made haste to the Grand Court of Sebelkeh. Upon our arrival, we found an unlikely ally in Varesh’s own General Morgahn who felt betrayed by Varesh.
At the basilica, we had to close three demonic portals, kill groups of margonites, and defeat their leader, the Blasphemy, to prevent the Altar of Lyssa from being corrupted. Varesh had already completed her ritual, but we have cleansed the basilica. Unfortunately nightfall is already under way. Morgahn told us that she was headed to the Mouth of Torment in the Desolation, to usher Abaddon into our world. The general joined our party to help us hunt her down.
Night has fallen over Elona, and an army of Margonites marched to the gates of the Kodash Bazaar. With the help of the djinn of Ahdashim, we killed them and prevented their invasion. Despite our victory, parts of Elona still fell to Abaddon’s corruption. I had made my way to the Garden of Seborhin and found it had succumb to Nightfall already. Outside its twisted entrance, I found a curious Kurzick necromancer. Anile R. Durheim was drawn to Elona by the events of Nightfall. When I learned that he was a devout follower of Grenth and opposer of Abaddon, I gladly accepted his request to accompany me into the Nightfallen Garden.
