    The EM hall stationed in Britain next to Blackthornes Castle has taken on a more darker path it seems. What once was a place of cheer and laughter, now gives off a feeling of death and horror. The previous decorations have vanished, and in their place now hang skeletons, dead trees and more. Even the previously friendly stable master has become nothing more than a slow, shambling zombie.

    The inside of the hall has had its many tables removed, now rows of blood red stone chairs dominate the western corner. Along with a stage on which glowing runes and magical faces seem to guard.

    Upon inquiring about the changes, Kasaven seemed to think it was the work of the sarcophagus that had recently appeared on the stone road outside. The item in question, has the name Arkinin etched into its gleaming golden surface. Kasaven at this point, said he wished to locate Owain and see if he had any thoughts on the matter. Shortly after, masses of skeletons appeared around the sarcophagus and attempted to attack bystanders. The city guard deftly dealt with this menace.

    What is the reasoning for this change? Who exactly is Arkinin? What terrors await the free people of our lands? Only time my friends, will tell us the answer.

    Arkinin means to set in motion.
