Withering the Nightmare

I'm still impressed that you infiltrated the Nightmare Court. It takes a special kind of sneak to pull that off. My heart aches when I think about the terrible, terrorizing abuse they heap on the innocent. If they'd infected those poor souls with nightmare, it would have brought suffering to the entire region. You have our thanks.

— Alarin
