It is a space of madness and before they proceed, they hear the call of The Nameless Serpent.
As Hedrick, and Mervin sit in the darkness of The Void, the message they find within is transmitted into the hearts of all their kin across The Forsaken Lands. It is a haunting echo that begins to stoke flames of insanity within some otherwise rational figures.
King Offling, still cowering from his failed attempt to rescue Julian Tryhard at Crow's Den, begins to feel the intensity of such darkness and slips into an unnatural state. He begins to repeat portions of The Nameless Serpent's message, citing the call to sacrifice and the echoes of The Second Bonfire when so many threw themselves into the flames for Mother Agora.
Elsewhere, this dark madness extends to Lady Fielding, his trusted guard, who upon feeling the shame of failing her duties, flees to the forest and takes her own life; comitting her spirit to the depths of The Void. Upon realizing her love's demise, Eira the Wyrd let the darkness claim her as well.
