|A Needle in a Haystack|
Description[edit | edit source]
- The herb woman asked me to help Drahomira, the butcher woman from Ledetchko who is at her wits' end. She claims the ghost of her dead neighbour has been haunting her at night and she can't get a wink of sleep.
- Poppies serve as an additive in the incense, so I got at least ten.
- The herbalist has given me some advice on dealing with the restless spirit, but first I should have a word with Drahomira.
- I spoke to Drahomira, the widow of the Ledetchko butcher. She said was being haunted by a restless soul who she said was coming to her every night. The herbalist said burning herbs from the grave of the departed in Drahomira's room would dispel the ghost.
- Apart from poppies, I also needed flowers from the grave of the departed for the incense to dispel the restless spirit. I found the grave and plucked all the flowers growing on it.
- I performed the smudging ritual in Drahomira's cottage and chanted the spell, just as the herb woman advised me. The ghost should be gone.
- Unfortunately, the smudging ritual didn't do the trick. Drahomira told me the ghost was still haunting her.
- Since the smudging didn't work, I asked the Rattay Apothecary what might help. He told me I had to get hold of something that belonged to the departed, and an old book of spells, which won't be easy, since the book is banned.
- The book is called Necronomicon, one of the 'libri prohibiti', books banned by the Church, so there may be one locked away at the monastery. The monks aren't likely to give it to me just for asking nicely though. I'll probably have no choice but to steal it.
- I finally got my hands on the banned book of spells - Necronomicon. Stealing it from Sasau Monastery proved the only option.
- In order to dispel the ghost, I had to find out what was troubling it. I asked Drahomira what it was and she told me a tragic story about his wife, who had burned him alive in their home.
- One of the ingredients needed for the incense was something that belonged to the dead man. Since the whole burnt-out farm belonged to him, I took a piece of charred wood from it.
