Beneath the Archtopis

Beneath the Archtopis lives the hermit Torpuk. Scavenger of rats and mushrooms, his mind has become twisted toward those who live in the light. Mörken has tried to win him over, but his efforts left ten Troth warriors headless. The creature becomes more restless as the war moves closer to the Archtopis. "Enough waiting. The time has come to silence this foolishness. My rats are leaving me. That can't be allowed," whispers the troll.
