: I reckon Soulblighter recovered it from the area. Think
: about it, the explosion at the Devoid may have
: uncovered some juicy stuff, so after the dust settled,
: he probably scoured the area for goodies. He probably
: found the Journal and read it to learn more of the
: tactics of the West and maybe find out any info Alric
: knew but Balor hadn't told him. Also he would have
: found out about "a man not yet born, who would
: ressurect the Myrkridia".
: So, back to the question. The baron's flavour text is as
: follows: "The Baron came to power ten years ago,
: appearing out of nowhere. With the aid of his brigand
: cohorts, he laid claim to Keep Kildaer and the
: surrounding lands. "
: So I assume hat he was in the Untamed Lands when
: Soulblighter fled there. He was probably one of his
: disciples and when SB thought he was ready, he told
: him to set up camp in Forest Heart.
: "Stygian Knights are a rare sight as they are
: created only by Soulblighter and given as guards to
: his human associates."
: "As Soulblighter's corrupting influence spread, many
: weak and unsavory soldiers were swayed to his banner
: with false promises."
: Just more text to back up his allegiance with SB. When SB
: finished witht he Journal, he gave it to the Baron who
: could safe guard it in his keep while Soulblighter
: began his military campaign against the Light.
Sounds good... but the journal is buried less then a few thousand yards away... I don't think that was close enough to the devoid.
Also, why would Soulblighter stick around to find stuff?
What are the Legionaries like to have of any value to him?
