This task is no longer offered but is still available to complete if you received it previously. It has been replaced by "Sacred Impressions"

Find Artisan Kjell Sunrunner in Halas at location +155, +390 inside The Golden Torc.

You say, 'Hail, Artisan Kjell Sunrunner'

'Aye, hail,' the barbarian says as he raises a fist in salute. 'Have you returned for the [funeral], ______?'

You say, 'What funeral?'

Artisan Kjell Sunrunner says, 'The funeral of Fellroon Skene. He's one of the last of the Skene clan. The lad fell in battle. It was a proud death, a warrior's death! Too bad there are so few of his kin left to mourn him. That's why I've returned to Halas, to pay tribute to a great [warrior]!'

You say, 'What great warrior?'

Artisan Kjell Sunrunner says 'Aye, all the Skenes had a penchant for warfare. That's probably why there are so few of them left. Before he died, Fellroon told me where to find his clan's armor pattern book. Their ancestral designs were a long kept secret, but Fellroon said he didn't want these patterns to die with him. He told me to pass them on to all Barbarians across Norrath. Would you be interested in a pattern [book] or perhaps some armor [patterns]?'

You say, 'I am interested in some armor patterns.'

Kjell Sunrunner says 'Well then, ______. Now that the Fellroon is dead, a blood feud has began between his family and the goblins that slew him. If you are interested in joining their effort, they may be able to reward you with more of their ancestral pattern designs. Let me know if you are interested in expeditions for the Skene clan into [Everfrost], the Mines of [Nurga], the [Maiden's Eye], or the [valley] beyond the Lavastorm mountains. I have also heard about a new [underground] place.'

You say, 'I am interested in an expedition to The Maiden's Eye.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Essence of Darkness'.

Kjell Sunrunner says 'In an effort to curb the power of the goblins, our shamans require further study of the magical essences used by the goblin warlocks. It is said that the essence of darkness can be found in Maiden's Eye. Go there, slay eighty shades and return to me with their dark essence. We can use what you recover to study the nature of the goblins' magic.'

Kill 80 Xi Xaui or Xi Vius - The Maiden's Eye
Loot 20 Essence of Darkness - The Maiden's Eye
Deliver 4 Essence of Darkness to Artisan Kjell Sunrunner - Halas
Kill 5 coterie vampyres - The Maiden's Eye
Loot 1 Vampyre Ashes - The Maiden's Eye
Deliver 1 Vampyre Ashes to Artisan Kjell Sunrunner - Halas

Upon handing in the Vampyre Ashes:

Kjell Sunrunner says, 'Well done. As promised, here's your reward. Let me know if you are interested in any more of these [patterns]. The blood feud between the Skenes and the goblins rages on!'

You receive a Master's Book of Barbarian Culture.
