The Company of the Turbohorses continued to search Prajjor’s Field for the Blood of Thystonius, in the hopes of preventing it from being used for nefarious purposes. Their next encounter was with a Horror known as a Torment Swarm, a mass of worms that feed off of pain and agony. These worms were dangerous, but the powerful blasts and bursts of the magicians in the party ripped through them.
Finally the PCs came upon a place on the battlefield where the blood was still wet, despite the time since the battle. However a Questor of Raggok and her band of villains were already there. She was accompanied by a Blood Elf nethermancer with a gaggle of zombies, and a band of Orks led by a Steeltooth. The blood on the ground here had magical properties granted by its proximity to Thystonius’s, and if found, his blood would have greater powers still.
Battle was joined once again. The Company fared well, slaying most of the Orks quite quickly, and working through the zombies (who had an annoying habit of standing up after being dropped). Cro-Mag got a little over-committed, and was stunned by the nethermancer and assaulted by the Questor, but his vast ability to absorb punishment served him well.
Just as things seemed to be breaking decisively in the PCs’ favor, the nethermancer re-raised the zombie corpses and raised the Orks anew as zombies. This new zombie horde swarmed Molokhai and brought him down, though they were killed (for the third or fourth time) shortly thereafter. After that it was just a matter of time to finish off the remaining dark forces.
Upon the conclusion of the battle, the Company was approached by a dark-skinned man accompanied literally by a shining host of angels. He identified himself as Kehinde, a Questor of Thystonius, and said he had come to purge the blood from the earth so that none may work mortal magics upon it. The PCs agreed.
