Artix: I am so glad you are here. How can I be of service?
Artix: The undead are causing havoc all over DoomWood!
Artix: It would be an honor to fight by your side!
Artix: DoomWood has a lot going on inside. Do you want to know anything specific?
Artix: Please accept my apology. I was so excited to actually meet you in person that I forgot to introduce myself.
Artix: My name is Artix von Krieger and I am a Paladin who has dedicated his entire life to battling the undead.
Artix: You can usually find me battling the supernatural creatures in Doomwood. The highest concentration of undead can be found here!
Artix: Moonridge is a nice town on the far eastern side of DoomWood. The entire town is a Giant Shopping MALL!
Artix: DoomWood used to be a beautiful forest…and it had a different name. I know this, because I was born and raised here before IT happened
Artix: The Necropolis is a giant underground city of the dead. Necromancers and DeathKnights go there to train. We must destroy it!
Artix: A Paladin is a warrior of good who has dedicated their life to thwarting evil and protecting those in need
Artix: Through love and faith a Paladin is granted the power to overcome evil
Artix: There are many different types of Paladins…perhaps you would like to train as a Paladin one day
Artix: I would be honored to share with you what I have learned once we have handled this undead situation
Artix: Necromancers…*furrows his brow* They are evil spellcasters who abuse their magic to create and control the undead
Artix: Necromancers enslave the life force of their victims, trapping them in their skeletal cages and controlling them like puppets
Artix: Each undead you cross is a result of this terrible magic. But by destroying the skeleton you set the life force free!
Artix: I can hear their voices in my mind…and they want to be free. That is why I battle…I will not stop until I free them all!
Artix: Within the Necropolis lays the secrets of this Dark magic. I intend to destroy it and never let this happen to anyone again!
Artix: Will you help me defeat these Necromancers, friend?
Artix: Thank you! I know that together we can put a stop to the evil that the Necromancers are spreading!
Artix: I am sure you have your reasoning. I believe in you and know that you will do the right thing
Artix: Joining the order of the Paladin is no small task, <Character>. I have to be sure your heart is pure. It will take time
Artix: I will not interfere with your choices, but if you want to learn skills of Necromancer or DeathKnight, then I must send you elsewhere
Artix: Well, we have defeated every necromancer in the Necropolis...
Artix: So I guess the only necromancer left to teach you necromancy...
Artix: ...Would be Zorbak! Remember before you decide to learn from that ebil moglin that he was expelled from Necro U.
Artix: A DeathKnight is a fallen paladin who has turned down the path of corruption.
Artix: You must be fully trained as both a Paladin AND a Necromancer to become one of these dread warriors of darkness.
Artix: I only know of one place where you might learn more about DeathKnights... the Tomb of Sir Malifact.
Artix: Those Doom Weapons are dangerous. VERY dangerous. I can sense the evil inside them.
Artix: The elemental darkness spirits that are bound to those weapons appear to grow stronger with each passing day.
Artix: I have certain abilities that I have never seen in another paladin, and I believe that I can cleanse these weapons.
Artix: If you come across one of these Doom Weapons... bring it to me and I can transform it into a Weapon of Destiny!
Artix: The Weapons of Destiny will be just as powerful as their counterparts, but will be infused with the power of Light!
Artix: Just make sure to get the Doom Weapons to me... before it is too late.
Artix: If you want, I can upgrade the Weapons of Destiny for you, but I will need you to gather some materials for me.
Artix: If you are upgrading your Weapon of Destiny from its most basic form, you will need some Purification Research Materials.
Artix: You can find the Purification Research Materials in Chaney's shop in Crystal Clear Lake, near Amityvale.
Artix: After that upgrade, all you will need are Undead Slayer Badges that you can gather from any of my quests for further upgrades.
Artix: Awesome! You really want to make Doomwood your home and slay undead?
Zorbak: Meh, YOU again? What do you want?
Zorbak: I guess I should thank you
Zorbak: Since you defeated all of those losers in the Necropolis, that makes me the most powerful Necromancer in DoomWood
Zorbak: (I hope Vayle didn’t hear that)
Zorbak: You may be wondering what I want with Undead Slayer Badges. The answer is…
Zorbak: …I really don’t want them for anything. All I know is that Artix wants them for some reason.
Zorbak: If I get more of them, then that goody goody gets less of them. Meh heh heh!
Zorbak: Now, GET BACK TO YOUR STUDIES…APPRENTICE!
Zorbak: Alright, let’s get this over with!
Sir Bram Malifact
Malifact’s Ghost: My name is Sir Bram Malifact the holy Paladin of truth, justice, and peace! How can I assist you, hero?
Malifact’s Ghost: Ah, I sense that you know the truth about me
Malifact’s Ghost: Yes, I was the last DeathKnight. I was trained as a Paladin and fought for good until I found the ring
Malifact’s Ghost: All the dark knowledge of Necromancy flowed into my mind, twisting it but giving me SO MUCH RAW POWER…
Malifact’s Ghost: After betraying my friends, I found that I had been doomed to haunt this crypt until my items were returned to me
Malifact’s Ghost: You now have all the knowledge and power of both a Paladin and a Necromancer but, like me, you hunger for more
Malifact’s Ghost: I will teach you what you need to know, in return for Undead Slayer Badges. If I gather enough of them, others may come looking for my horde…
Malifact’s Ghost: …and I can trick that poor fool into returning my power to me!
Malifact’s Ghost: It is time to unlock the power of the DeathKnight
Paladin Armor can be found through Artix
Necromancer Armor can be found through Zorbak
DeathKnight Armor can be found through Sir Bram Malifact with fully trained Paladin and Necromancer
