"Hrmph, so this one thinks to prove himself with the haste by which he conquers his Inquisition. Phaw! There do be no sloppy work beneath the Mandate! But, may be Supplicant Gallid will get the chance to take Reaper Gazreeth's title for himself."Gallid wrote:High Inquisitor Khorvis, I have sent my servant to deliver you this message to you personally as i have been busy on cleansing this land of the alliance scum. While taking brief intermissions i did happen to meet up with the three Grim you had asked me to seek out.
First i met Harbinger Malbrignon; We talked about the mandate for a great while. During this time i had learned several things. First i was almost shocked by what the shadow priest was saying almost thinking that he was betraying us and working for the alliance only to realize that he does not recognize the alliance as even existing. I also learned that the mandate is not just about slaying and killing all those who appose us, but also loving. Not in the sense of falling in love, but more so on the fact that we need to learn to love each other on a spiritual type level. Not only that but that the Grim is not built on a revenge type mentality like i had been for so long, but rather making Azoroth as a whole a better place. He also let me know that there have been grim before me that have tried to skate by with the mandate, and trials. He made it clear that it had happened to him once, and that it would never happen again.
The second person i met several days later was Reaper Akorharil although i still have many questions about "our peaceful end" I am proud to say that i did learn a few things from this great warlock. One of which is that I am considered a waste of time to many in the Grim till i have proven myself by completing these tasks. While i have met many of the Grim and they have seem to have tolerated me rather well. It seems that many do not want to waist there time with me as there has been many supplicants who have tried and failed to make the cut with the Grim. Second was that the trials that do undergo do not have to pertain to feats of strength, or common customs; but that they can consist of anything that my Inquisitor may deem a challenge that he/she thinks i may not be able to complete. Or even something that they think will teach me a lesson in something that i may need to learn.
Lastly I spoke with Reaper Gazreeth Goldteeth, While this was the shortest of my conversations he made it incredibly clear about one thing. The Grim does not play. i asked him to teach me more about what he meant. He only gave me a few brief sentences before we were done. He holds the record for the Fastest trial completion in Grim history. There is a reason for this and that is he has dedicated every fabric of his soul to the mandate and that he is ready and willing to die by any of his brethren at any moments notice to insure the sanctity of the Grim. He also stated that he would not hesitate to kill any man woman or child if needed. He warned me that i should be ready, and willing to do the same. That was all that was said left in shock I mounted and returned to my garrison to complete my tasks at hand, and have this letter delivered.
Khorvis chuckled to himself and set about crafting a suitable Trial of Sacrifice for the hasty death knight.
Attached to the missive are copies of the notes once sent to Elder Daxxum, with the remaining components needed to complete the Lash circled with incarnadine ink.Khorvis wrote:Supplicant Gallid,
Well done on the completion of your Trial of Resolve. Do take the teaching of your superiors to heart. Their knowledge did come at great price, and all of their words do bear some weight. The Grim does be both the axe and the buckler of the Horde, in attack and defense of its own. I do not ask you to die for the Mandate this moon, but were the time to come, Reaper Gazreeth has the right of it.
With honor to Goldteeth, you do be in the running for a Supplicant to take the mantle of Reaper most quickly. Here is the final Trial of Sacrifice that I do set you upon. Complete it with honor by the next meeting of the Inquisition, and you do hold that title for yourself.
[[OOC: This is your final task, the Trial of Sacrifice. Complete the three achievements listed and write up a convincing public IC response to this letter. Do it before the Inquisition meeting on June 15th and you will have beaten Gazreeth's record. You still officially have one month to complete it, to reach full rank. Good luck! ]]Khorvis wrote:Blood of Despair: The links must be tempered in blood that has seen the utter futility of its efforts. The Soulbinder Nyami who lurks in Auchindoun would be an ironic target. The wench must see all of her allies broken before she is bled dry. Her ichor will serve the Mandate within the Lash.
Lightning Runes: The sound of a whipcrack holds great power over the weak-minded. Enhanced by a thunderclap and a lightning strike, the Lash may break Supplicants of even sturdier stuff. Orebender Gor'ashan traps and binds the spirits of electricity in his chambers within Blackrock Spire. His runes will be copied, and the captured lightning spirits must be secured before they flee.
Deliver these two last parts to my chambers. While you do search for them, there do be one last task for your rotting hide. There do be three heroes of Vol'jin's Horde that find themselves in the prison of Stormshield. You will remember your commitment to the Horde by freeing them and rending a bloody path out of the filthy Alliance keep.
When these three tasks do be complete, the value of your Inquisition will be judged. Peace Through Annihilation, Gallid.
High Inquisitor of the Mandate
