Ling heads into the Cleft, seeing lights come from the area.. some arcane in nature some fel, she realizes that all magic users are concentrated under this part of the city.
Ling, arranges to meet with the Warlock Master Zevrost, and approaches him when called.
"Master Zevrost, I am told you are the strongest and most clever of all the warlocks known," Ling Kneels on one knee and Zevrost looks at her and knods.
"What do you seek young Sindori Warlock? To learn how I aquired such power? To find out how many I have bested?" Zevrost looks her over noticing she wears basic clothing nothing fancy and carries with her no weapon or focusing staff, yet she emits power of a extreme ammount for the skills he knows she has.
"None of the above Sir, I was called by a Succubi who's former master was very foolish and tried to summon all his bound demons into the world. They are fully emerged and are dieing, I wish to help them." Ling pulled out her notes on the linking ritual and gave them to the Master.
"You don't seek to bind them as is tradition?" Zevrost Commented after reading over everything.
"No sir, I am aware this spell is normally used for demons that are highly respected, but I do not want to see them in pain or know I am harming another." Ling explained, " I did not choose to be a warlock, but I can not change now. I can only make sure I follow the Rules I have set out for myself.
1. If it harms no one I may do it.
2. I must protect the weak from the strong.
I can not harm another unless they are the ones causing harm to others, and I will unleash my power on them then and only then."
Zevrost looked at her and saw in Lings eyes something that was not there in a warlocks eyes, a craving for power, the corruption that eventually taught all warlocks there limits or killed them.
"I know the staff's original reason to exist is to cause great Evil on the lands Master," Ling begs " But I only want to help them, to save them from dieing here!"
Zevrost looks at Ling and chuckels for he sees her true nature, had she not been pushed down this path she would have been a priestess, and if she succeeds she might help others, including himself one day, when the corruption inside grows too consume them.
"The Staff you seek to create will be hard to manufacture, the only place to get the Tenebrous Orb and sufficient Ghostly Essence is the Shadow Fang Keep!
It will be hard to get in and get out. For my price i will ask you find the book "The Book of Lost Souls"." Zevrost scratched his chin in thought then scribbles down some instructions
"You will need to form a small party to break in. Here are directions from UnderCity to the Keep, and a letter of recommendation to a friend that will help you find some mercenaries to assist."
Ling Thanks him and Runs off heading back to Undercity and she hires with most of her savings a bang of men and women who help her break into Shadowfang keep, finding the required materials she uses the now former occupants lab to package the Essence into the Tenebrous Orb as the ritual required to stabilize the essence.
