Deep in the bowels of Blight Manor is a portal to great power. The team handily defeats the Wolf Man and proceeds to the portal. Once they reach it, they find their way barred by the ghost of a Summoner long-dead. She was the first of the necromantic Blight Summoners, and she is the proctor of the Ten Trials of Power. After some discussion, the team embarks on the first trial in THE STAINED TOWER.
