Bring me some taint
Quest from: Orm Varagor
In order for Orm to spawn in the game, you have to finish the "Follow the thief!" quest. The Necromancer, living North of Covengor, needs a few samples of Taint. This is actually a little series of quests, each of which sees you collecting Taint from various graveyards. Completing these quests is a good way to get high reputation among Necromancers. The Taint is found on graveyards: you can check their locations on the map that came with the game (the "paper" one).
