Arcian built the Necromant House, the large building located east of the Dark Cathedral. He built it to research the art of necromancy. He made several attempts to reanimate the dead and develop a portal that would lead to the Pits of Inferno. One day, he was betrayed and killed by his apprentice Porgol, who wanted to become a great Necromant King. His corpse can be found hidden under a tree just to the north of the cyclops camp in the Plains of Havoc. His wife was Laira. He wrote this letter to his friend Muriel just before his death.
