Subduing the Spirit
Subduing the Spirit is a Quest in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Quests can provide unique adventuring experience, as well as powerful gears and treasures. Some quests are time-limited and some can only be completed with certain companions.
Despite is apparent softness and vulnerability, living tissue is an unyielding substance that retains its original pattern of life and desperately resists metamorphosis. But the spiritual essence of a living being is many times more stubborn and capricious. Compared to the flesh-and-blood body, the spirit is infinitely more difficult to distort and refashion into a new form. It is not surprising, therefore, that Zacharius's spiritual surgery failed. The Commander's soul showed extraordinary power and resistance to the spells that were to separate it from the body and transfer it to the prepared phylactery. Zacharius is troubled by his inability to complete his ritual and fulfill his magical oath, so he has instructed the Commander to find a way to overcome this surprising property of his spirit.
Wait until an opportunity presents itself
- Zacharius has charged the Commander with finding a way to weaken his soul, which appears to be unusually strong and unreceptive to the lich's spells. It is still unclear how to do this, but Zacharius is confident that with patience and diligence, sooner or later the Commander will come across information that will help.
Interrogate the dead demon lord Alinythia
Zacharius is curious about how the Lady in Shadow dispatched her enemies in the past. He is certain, that with proper modernization, this method could serve in his ritual as well, weakening the Commander's soul sufficiently so that it subtimes to Zacharius's spells and leaves the Commander's body. The lich insists that the Commander must descend into the mines of the island and try to awaken the remaining... scraps of Alinythia's soul, which are encased in a vein of Nahyndrian crystal. A hazardous venture, indeed.
- Go down into the mines where the crystal was found.
- After gleaning information from the spirit in the mines; return to the Storyteller's tower, and ask him to contact Zacharius.
