They traveled for days to a village to the East. There they found the people plagued by a creature they called ‘the Morgrund.’
“Please help us,” the elders asked them.
Crowstone spoke to Kalar at the edge of the village. “You will find the Morgrund and kill it, Kalar. It is not a creature born of this world, so keep your wits.”
“Are you not coming, Crowstone?” Kalar asked.
Crowstone shook his head. “You must face this test alone.”
Kalar set out the next morning with only his sword for company.
