“Who are you?” You shout at Maldred. “Where are you taking me?”
You continue your interrogations, bewildered as to prior ghostly events.
“They were ghosts! They disappeared when…” You pause. “They disappeared when one of them dropped his blue ring.”
Maldred sighs. “I know what you did. You took the Jarl’s ring and it collectively destroyed what lifeforce they had left in this realm.”
The old man grins. “Now come along, I’ll explain more on the way. We’re already late.”
