REPEATABLE (Recommended Level 47)
The Vampire Hunter knows all about pain and anguish, as well as responsibility. Someone with the power to do so needs to investigate the nearby farm, and uproot the suffering that flourishes in its fields.
Tier 1
Shredded screams and the stench of corpses fill the air at night. Whatever's happening at the nearby farm, its source lies in the secret world. And, contends the Vampire Hunter, so must the remedy.
  • Investigate the farm
  • Find something to burn the rotting corpses with
  • Burn the rotting corpses (0/4)

The massacre stretches across the farm. Uncover more about the creatures that sow these dreaded seeds.
  • Investigate the nearby barn
  • Ignite an Inanimate Scarecrow (0/4)
  • Destroy the Headless Terror
Tier 4
Scarecrows - much like those on Henderson's farm - are fashioned in the barn. They too are made of old robes and stuffed with someone else's sorrow. Find the creature responsible.

Do not allow anyone to condemn your actions or non-actions. That is our privilege. And only for as long as you allow yourself to be judged.

There are revenant fields across the globe. Suffering has become a very popular crop - and more and more land is fertile for it. We do not have the means to uproot every single farm, but we do track them as best we can. It offers a glimpse of how the world's agony is distributed. Wallachia currently produces more than its fair share.

I looked into the Vampire Hunter - a.k.a. John Smith of Nebraska. So I was half-right: family killed, just not by vampires. His trail's a bit helter-skelter. We'll let you know if the story gets interesting. In the meantime, don't let him give you any more morality lessons. Our only responsibility is to the share holders.

As for the farm, it's your basic revenant field. Revenants are all about finding ground that's fit to sow suffering. Reports suggest that Transylvania is particularly fertile.

Continue the good work out there - cutting through the indignant bullshit, burning the rotten corpses, etc.


Templars.png FROM: Temple Hall

SUBJECT: Ripples
These are terrible times for agriculture. Farms everywhere are being overrun by portents of the coming doom. That is what revenants do - they sow death and seek to make it last.

One must not deny the Vampire Hunter his right to be indignant. It confirms his character.

Of course, he was wrong to imply that we had anything to do with this mess. The Illuminati, certainly capable of it. The Dragon, capable of anything. We may not always be above reproach, but ninety-seven percent of the time we are. That figure is a fact.
