Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Piniwin the Apprentice
A Chosen of Ghaunadaur is attacking Blacklake with his slimy monsters! You must help us fend him off!

What's going on here?
Piniwin the Apprentice
A strange drow calling himself the "Chosen of Ghaunadaur" showed up on the nearby shore and started summoning slime-covered creatures from the depths of the lake!

My master Hazel went to try and fight them off, but she could use your help!

How can I help?
Piniwin the Apprentice
Help Hazel fight back the undead creatures! If you destroy enough of them, the Chosen of Ghaunadaur will be angered into attacking you himself!

Hazel also set up barrels of Alchemist Fire on the edge of the lake. Light them up to set the undead aflame. But be careful - the fire spreads quickly and is very dangerous!

Who's Ghaunadaur?
Piniwin the Apprentice
Ghaunadaur is "That Which Lurks". He is an ancient evil god of oozes, slimes, and abominations. If one of his "Chosen" is in Blacklake District, that certainly explains what happened to the place!

Don't worry, miss. We'll take care of this!
