The Bone Machine
Caine’s power rivals Guilder Kalien and Guilder makes regular donations to Caine to keep peace in the region.
The truth of Caine:
Caine is a lich who is creating the a lich army.He power and methods are unlike all others. He has been freezing hundreds of will-be liches in the mountains near Warrior’s Rest. During the lich-making process, he unfreezes the skeletons and brings them to the ceremonial location near Warrior’s Rest.
To keep the peace in his kingdom, Guilder Kalien has been bringing sacrifices to Caine for his ritual. When the ceremonial dagger of the cult of the dripping fang is used for the sacrifice, the blood rises into the clouds and rains down upon the skeleton army, as they soak up the blood.
