Description

"Just as our Father crushes the Aspects themselves, so too must we strive to bring chaos and destruction to their children.

Travel to the Swamp of Sorrows and track down Somnus, drake champion of the Green Flight. Let flow your hatred; dominate the insect... Return to me with his skull..."

"One of ssseveral complete..."

or

"Another Complete."

"The most hated remainsss..."

Notes

Somnus wanders around the lake in eastern Swamp of Sorrows, the same lake that the Sunken Temple has sunken into. Somnus is easily the hardest of the three dragons as he hits hard and has the ability to sleep people; if this happens to your only healer, it's bad news.
