This task begins with Welverd Steelbairn (map) in Kael Drakkel: The King's Madness. He's located at 100, 1215, -135. If coming from the Eastern Wastes, pass through the first archway, keep going, pass through the second archway, and hang an immediate right (north). He is outside one of the buildings in this area.
You say, 'Hail, Welverd Steelbairn'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'Do you smell that? The miasma begins to waft through Kael, rising from the corpses that lie unburied. Were it not for the preservative qualities of ice, we would all be choking on the stench of rotting flesh by now. But it is [difficult] to approach the bodies of our fallen brethren in order to bury them.'
You say, 'Difficult?'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'It is not only because of their repellent smell. There seems to be a kind of darkness clinging to the bodies, some feeling that penetrates whoever draws near. I think it must have some relation to the strange [apparitions] that have arrived in Kael.'
You say, 'Apparitions?'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'I struck one down the other day -- one of those twisted dogs. I did not want the meat to go to waste, so I took its body home and cooked it. Even though the meat was burnt, it still tasted raw. Leaving my home later in the evening, I walked near a kromrif's corpse. Crawling around the body were fat, shadowy [worms].'
You say, 'What worms?'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'I had never seen anything like those worms, and I thought I was imagining things. On my way home, I did not see the worms there. The next morning, I ate more of the meat, and I walked the path once more. The corpse still lay on the ground, and the worms had returned. I hid behind a snowdrift and watched as they slowly [disappeared] from my sight, seeming to melt into the snow.'
You say, 'Disappeared?'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'It must be the meat. It gave me a glimpse into a dark world unknown to giants. The discomfort I felt before around the corpses must come from these shadowy worms. If I could somehow banish them from Kael, we could retrieve our dead and give them proper burial. Would you be willing to [deal] with these worms for me? I do not have the heart to face them, as difficult as it is for me to admit.'
You say, 'I will deal with them'
Welverd Steelbairn says 'Thank you. Here is some of the meat I saved from the dead apparition. If you eat it, you will surely see the worms. If you run out of meat, kill and eat more apparitions.'
You have been assigned the task 'Bring Out Your Dead'.
You receive "Apparition Flesh".
The dead in Kael lie unburied, but Welverd Steelbairn wants to change this. To allow the giants to properly care for the deceased, you must kill the shadow worms that have been feeding upon the dead giants.
The shadow worms can be found near corpses of giants. In order to see and fight the shadow worms without causing grave harm to yourself, you must consume the flesh of apparitions.
