For years the Lynching Tree was the site of choice for those wishing to dispense summary "justice." Many despicable criminals are interred beneath its roots. So are many innocent souls who were wrongly accused and unjustly executed.

As a result, the are near the tree is infused with an evil spiritual energy. Valindra's Thayan wizards have found a way to tap into this enery and are using it to fuel their rituals.

Acolyte Neyman believes a ritual cleansing of the area will disperse the energy, but she will need a protector during the ceremony. Go and speak to her.

Talk to Mina about the Ritual[]

Acolyte Neyman
I'm glad you are to be my guardian for this ceremony.

The power of Kelemvor protects me from the undead while I am performing the ritual, but I cannot complete the ritual while defending myself. It is your job to make sure I can concentrate on the rites and prayers.

Head to the Lynching Tree. I'll meet you there.

I'll see you there, Acolyte.

Speak to Acolyte Neyman[]

Acolyte Mina Neyman
This is it! This is the place! I can feel the evil power pulsing from the tree. We must prevent the Thayans from using it!

Remember, I can protect myself from the undead while performing the ritual, but I can't make any progress toward completing it while under attack. Preventing that is your job.

I understand.
Acolyte Mina Neyman
I have to perform the rites several times, in several locations to fully cleanse this place. Follow me!
Let's go!


Doomguide Volahk
The loss of the Lynching Tree's Corrupting power should slow the Red Wizard's rituals.

Hopefully it has bought use the time we need to stop them completely!
