A missive is delivered to the council:
The ashes of the necromancer have been recovered. There was some concern as initially they were recovered by members of the Black Sky mercenary guild, who seemed inclined to auction them off. This was unacceptable to the Wardens and followers of Theros as well.
After some discussion as to how this put existing alliances at risk, and clarification of their intent, this can be set aside as a poor working choice. They wished to determine if the artifact posed any threat first, and if not, to have the right to gain compensation for their efforts.
However, as it appears these ashes are much more dangerous then the corrupted hearts that have been dealt with, we all agree they need to be cleansed or destroyed.
For the moment a mixed force Wardens, Black Sky & Therosians are transporting the ashes to the shared fort at Cailenstadt where they will be kept under a mixed faction guard so that all dealings are above board. This seems a good combination of a defendable position, away from most of the population, yet close enough to be available for the next step, whatever that may be.
If a convocation of those most holy could be called, we believe they may be able to come up with a way to deal with this vile substance before it's evil can cause more harm.
Until we receive word of the time and place for such a gathering, or orders otherwise from yours and the council, we shall keep the ashes under watch.
For the kingdom,
Captain of the Wardens
