This task is the third in a series of three. It is a solo task that begins with Wilfred Gorefinder (map) in the Chapterhouse of the Fallen. He is found at location -325, 930, -91. This is in the southwestern area of the Burning Dead halls in the western half of the zone's second floor.

Pre-Requisites:
- Level 85
- Completed "Infiltrating the Burning Dead"
- Completed "Operation"

Note: You must use the "Burning Dead Robes" illusion before you can speak with Wilfred (say "need more robes" to Sir Birton - map).

You say, 'Hail, Wilfred Gorefinder'

Wilfred Gorefinder says 'You're the new initiate, eh? There's something not right about you, but if Falsin trusts you, I guess I have no choice but to do the same. I can use your help though. There are a lot of tasks that we need to complete before we can turn our full attention to the upcoming ritual. The task I need your help with has me particularly [perplexed].'

You say, 'Perplexed?'

Wilfred Gorefinder says 'Someone is killing members of the Burning Dead and raising them as skeletons. This has to stop. We don't know who the murderer is yet. That's where you come in. I want you to [find] whoever is responsible for these heinous crimes and kill them.'

You say, 'I will find them'

Wilfred Gorefinder says 'I have just finished working on a device that should help you with your investigation. I call it the Ghost-o-Matic. It is a wondrous contraption that combines the best of gnomish necromancy and tinkering. To use it, simply place the remains of the one you wish to contact into the device along with a piece of ghostly parchment, and a message from the recently deceased will pop out for you to read. I know; it's quite brilliant if I do say so myself. Take the Ghost-o-Matic and this parchment and find the murderer! If you lose your parchment or the Ghost-o-Matic, let me [know], so I can replace them for you. Once you have dealt with the murderer, speak with my assistant, Gibble. I have other matters to attend to.'

You have been assigned the task 'Dead Gnomes Tell No Tales... Or Do They?'.

Wilfred Gorefinder is investigating a rather curious matter involving members of the Burning Dead being murderer and raised as skeletons, which just isn't right. See if you can help him with his investigation.

You receive 1x "Ghost-o-Matic" + 3x "Ghostly Parchment".

to clarify, Poira is in a tunnel that goes up, the northern most tunnel going up (not from cavern to cavern). There is a wanderer in that tunnel, too.

Slizis is found in the river, either sees through invis & IVU (I stack them on the explorer) or is auto-aggro, if you don't lose your invis & IVU, you can pull him cross zone.

Poira is located in a tunnel between the caverns and the Western halls. It is the tunnel that is North-most on the map.
