I've gathered some of our most skilled fighters here. We're poised to infiltrate the fort as soon as the qway is open.
You're the perfect fit for my plan, my friend.
What's your plan?
My grandsire was a powerful shaman. He passed down an ancient formula that allows a traveler to walk in the "otherworld" between the living and the dead.
It works on those who've become attuned to the realms beyond.
And you think I'm already attuned?
You're different. You must know that. Not all of you is with us, yes? That makes you the perfect candidate for the elixir.
Using the elixir, you can pass through the catacombs beneath Fort Virak. Find the door, open the way, and end this siege.
Do you want me to drink the elixir?
Yes, drink it. Then you'll be able to go where we cannot.
Of course, not all in the otherworld will welcome you. Contact with the beyond could be unpleasant, so avoid any creatures you see there. Good luck.
