CORVINTHEUS: The Road of the Warrior is filled with many difficult choices which will define the course of one's development. It is important that you understand the ways of the world and guard yourself from false temptation.
The Corvintheus Demi-Quests are gained by gaining Demi-Points that look like a shield. You can gain these points by praying to Corvintheus, or by battling humans or monsters.
Main Quest 1: Aid Corvintheus
Aid Corvintheus Time has come again to call on the help of the ancient line of paladins. A village in my keeping requires aid. Villagers are disappearing at night. Defend the village in my name.
The Infestation of Winterguard The soldiers bear the armor of Winterguard. The city has recently fallen. In its stead, the undead have erected a fortress for the unholy. Make your way to Winterguard and defeat this infestation.
The Lich Ne'zeal The undead infestation originated from the keep of a Lich by the name of Ne'zeal. His keep sits under the shadows of the eastern mountains. Vanquish Ne'zeal so that peace may be restored in our lands.
"I cannot do anything to aid these men, we must first destroy the Lich." Celesta says.
You leave your men in a trance as you continue forward. The gates of the keep are wide open, and the stench of death comes on suddenly as you pass through. You journey to the center of a large dusky atrium. A voice booms overhead.
"Welcome great warriors." A sinister voice calls out. You look up as the eerie form of the Lich takes shape in the middle of the courtyard, pale, ghostly and tall.
"Ne'zeal" Celesta calls out. Celesta utters some words as she pulls both you and her into the ethereal world to combat the Lich. You swing your hammer quickly but you are suddenly disarmed as the lich dodges and claws at your arms.
"A great power rages in me paladin."
You lunge forward quickly, hastened by another of Celesta's spells, and cut through the Lich's arm. An eerie mist gushes out as the arm slowly reforms and he turns again towards you. Suddenly a blast of holy light slams down onto the skull of the Lich. Celesta's Holy Fire delivers an immense blow. The Lich cries out as his form slowly fades away, "You have come to put an end to that which has no end."
Suddenly bats rush in from all directions, circling into a black whirlwind at the center of the courtyard. A dark shadowy figure emerges from the chaos. His teeth bare fangs, and he rushes at you, quickly ripping apart your shield with his bare claws. You roll dodging his repeated blows. "Run" Celesta says as she pulls you to your feet. Your men retreat from the wrath of the Vampire.
Furest Hellblade A Great Vampire Lord has awakened in the east, residing in his Castle of the Damn. The undead rise because of him. This Vampire Lord is ancient, having been asleep for millennia. There is a Vampire Hunter that may hold the keys to his undoing. Seek the aid of Furest Hellblade.
Shield of the Stars You learn that the shield has been lost, but a mysterious blacksmith has offered to forge a new one if you can bring him quantities of Star Metal to forge. "When a star dims and begins its descent from heavens, track down where it lands. There you will find star metal."
Castle of the Damn Your army travels days to the Castle of the Damn. A host of gargoyles and vampire bats circle above the castle, blocking the light of the moon. Your army advances as more bats rise up from within the keep, swarming around you with a frenzy to match their thirst for blood.
You see the shadow of a man staring out through the tower window. "You've made it this far Paladin, but as ancient as your line is. I was here when the first of your kind stood up to 'cleanse' us, and I am still here. You will meet your match this day."
He turns around, and is suddenly consumed in a thick cloud of bats. You can see him grow as he siphons blood from the bats in a whirlwind of red mist. His fangs sharpen, and his expanding form crashes into the tower ceiling, causing it to collapse. After the dust settles, you see a towering figure standing before the moonlight.
The Vampire Lord raises his hand and tendrils shoot out from it, grabbing one of your men. Your man suddenly turns white as his life is siphoned away. The vampire launches more tendrils at you as you raise your shield. Vulcan swings his hammer pinning the tendrils down but is soon crushed against the wall as the Vampire Lord launches a volley of attacks on him. You angle your shield towards the moon reflecting perfectly a narrow beam of moonlight at the vampire Lord. He screams as his flesh starts burning. The Star Metal is having an effect!
You rush forward, with Star Metal sword also in hand, and slash at everything the Vampire Lord is throwing at you. Blood splatters in all directions as you reach his position and deliver the final blow. You push the well-crafted Star Metal sword deep into his heart, drawing out the souls of a thousand victims. His form burns with each slice of your sword and he lets out a horrifying cry as you end an ancient evil.
