Artix: It looks like the last of Sepulchure's undead army is being taken care of my the other heroes of Falconreach.
Artix: That means that we are free to go down into the Necropolis and finish this.
Artix: We have to get the Darkness Orb from Noxus at all costs!
Artix joins you as Guest A.
<Character>: I can't believe the Necropolis is so empty now that the army is defeated!
Artix: I cannot believe how much power you and the other heroes of Falconreach have when you work toward a common goal!
Artix: I had a great time stomping those skeletons into the ground. I just wish there had been more.
<Character>: Artix... we beat 5 million of them... you beat the other 5 million by yourself!
Artix: I KNOW! I feel like I got ripped off! Oh well, at least Noxus should have something interesting up his sleeve...
Artix: ...I just hope that we are ready for whatever he throws at us.
<Character>: I hope that HE'S ready for US! Let's go... We can't let him escape with the Darkness Orb!
Fight 7 Necrotized Creatures on your way to Noxus
Noxus: Ah good, Artix and <Character Name>. Right on time.
<Character>: Surrender the Darkness Orb, Noxus, and we may just let you walk out of Doomwood.
<Character>: Sepulchure has his own ways of dealing with failures like you.
Noxus: Give YOU the Darkness Orb? You could not control its power. I would never hand it over to you...even if I had it.
<Character>: You don't have it?
Artix: Only a necromancer with the power of the Darkness Orb could have built that army.
Noxus: Don't you fools understand yet?
Noxus: Artix, the day that you and Vayle came out of the Guardian Tower, Vayle brought the power with her...
Noxus: ... Lady Vayle IS the Elemental Orb of Darkness now...
Noxus: ... and I alone control her!
I had spent months trying to enter the chamber beneath the Guardian Tower...
...But on that day I felt the power of the orb leave the chamber on its own.
...Imagine my surprise when I felt all that dark power flowing from a little girl...
...I knew that the orb had chosen to bind with this girl, and if I couldn't control the orb...
...Then I would control the girl. After I 'saved' her from the town we watched it burn together...
...and I began to teach her.
Vayle: Thank you for saving me Master Noxus, but my brother... I wish you could have saved him too.
Vayle: I wish I wasn't too late.
Noxus: When you are a necromancer, child, there is no such thing as "too late".
Noxus: I can teach you, if you like. Simply focus on your brother's energy... image capturing it in a bottle.
Vayle: Master Noxus! I did it! I can feel him inside that crystal!
Edgar: Hhhehhhelllp Mmmmeeeeeeeee
Vayle: It sounds... it sounds like he's in pain. Oh, how do we help him?!
Noxus: He just wants to live again, that is all.
Noxus: We will find a way, Vayle. If you become my student, I will teach you all that I know and we will find a way to bring him back.
Vayle: Do you promise? Do you promise that you can bring Edgar back?
Noxus: It will take much hard work on your part, but yes... I promise, Vayle.
Noxus: Since that day I have been using her... the power inside her... for myself.
Noxus: I had to be careful not to teach her too much. With the Orb bound to her, she could easily overpower me.
Noxus: The years passed and I raised her as a necromantress.
Noxus: In time, with her help, I became Dean of Necromancy University and she became my star student.
Noxus: Once you two troublemakers are finished, she will be able to rebuild Sepulchure's undead army in a matter of moments.
<Character>: So you never even planned on helping her use necromancy to raise her brother?
Noxus: Raise her brother? Necromancy is using dark power to control the dead... not revive them.
Noxus: Necromancy may have that kind of power but I've never seen it.
Noxus: Besides, how would I control her if I returned her brother to her? What would have been the point of killing him in the first place?
Artix: Killing him? He died as a result of the Green Mist. Do you mean that you...?
Noxus: That's right. The Green Mist was a deadly disease that I created to wipe out that village... YOUR village, Artix.
Noxus: If I had known that your exposure to the Orb made you resistant to my corruption I would have made other... arrangements.
Noxus: Especially considering what a thorn in my side that both you and <Character> have become.
Noxus: All that ends here and now. I will finish you like I should have years ago. I will re-create the undead army...
Noxus: ... and I will continue using Vayle as my puppet, for as long as I can use her brother as bait.
Vayle: I'VE HEARD ENOUGH!
Vayle: All these years... I TRUSTED YOU! YOU HAVE BEEN USING ME!!
Noxus: Vayle! You misunderstood me. Let me make it clear to you.
Vayle: No more of your LIES, "Master" Noxus!
Vayle: <Character>, I can never forgive what you have done... there still may have been hope... but let me help you finish Noxus
Vayle: With all of our power combined, this slug cannot possibly stand against us.
Vayle joins your party
Noxus: BAH! I was going to have to kill you for the Orb eventually, child. Now is as good a time as any.
Noxus: COME! Face NOXUS and now the power of a TRUE NECROMANCER!
You fight Noxus and 2 Minions
<Character>: Thank you for your help, Vayle.
Vayle: Save your thanks, <Character>. Noxus is defeated and the Necropolis is empty. That is enough for now.
<Character>: But... the Darkness Orb... what will you do?
Vayle: I will continue trying to find a way to save my brother. I still believe the key is in Necromancy.
<Character>: Will you stay here at the University?
Vayle: No, but Necromancy University has been here for centuries. Another master will come along and claim it.
Vayle: I know that you and Sepulchure both need the power of the Darkness Orb, so I know we will meet again.
Vayle: Just be ready for me. Next time that we meet it may not be as friends.
<Character>: I'll be ready. Farewell, Vayle.
Vayle: Farewell, <Character>.
A few weeks later...
*Sally appears from the entrance of the Necropolis...*
Sally: It's so empty...
Sally: This will make the best doll house EVER!
Sally: ...and it's all MINE!
