Arthos is puzzled by his powers mild effect. I have never failed before...perhaps this place has weakened my gift. I may not be able to draw on Irian here. But then what use am I? How will I find a way back if my one gift is taken?

He keeps his doubts to himself, brooding quietly until the message is read. Gift or know, I must do what I can. "I will stand with them against this threat. The dead ought not trouble the living and I will see none suffer while I have strength."

Marana, I must help them. Perhaps doing so will bring me home.

He takes up his staff and gathers his gear, ready to set out at once.
