J’Zhirr enters a dream full of trippy colors. So now we know that the Vaermina’s Torpor works.
Two priests of Vaermina are having a conversation. The Nord priest informs the elf, “The orcs have breached the inner sanctum, Brother Veren. But… no more than a handful of us remain, brother.”
Faced with such odds, Veren decides that there is no alternative left. In order to protect the Skull, they must release the Miasma. Then they turned to J’Zhirr, or rather the dreamer whose dream J’Zhirr is in, and asked, “And what about you, Brother Casimir? Are you prepared to serve the will of Vaermina?”
Casimir says that he is ready. The two priests decide that they will remain and guard the Skull so Casimir is given the task of activating the barrier and releasing the Miasma.
