Side Mission Introduction

"After Morgawse's unforeseen departure a new, bloodthirsty cult rose among the Picts. These madmen now ravage the countryside, kidnapping people to sacrifice during their grim rituals, and all our efforts to track them down failed. Now a renegade Moon Woman, Caintigern reached out to us and revealed the location of their hideout. Let's strike them down before they disappear again."

Side Mission Completed Description

"King Bres was sent back to hell where he belongs. Regrettably, in the chaos of the battle many of the cultists got away and they are no doubt still working on waking their king. It's not the last time we've heard about them."
