Bereft Chief

I have followed the path that the old, old ones spoke about, and it has led me to the Land of Souls.

I have come to the hut of an old man clothed in skins. He has instructed me to rest. How can I rest? I have no rest. I must find the soul of my wife who died before we could enjoy our wedding feast.

Where did she go? Why did she go?
