Objective of[]


On his undeath:

  • I always loved Silverpine -- until the Lich King let loose his rampaging Scourge armies and turned the land into a rotting corpse pit. Now the sight of it boils my green blood.
  • This is undoubtedly Godfrey's fault.
  • They should have burned my damned corpse.
  • Keep the conversations curt. I am in no mood for whining or rambling.
  • Being forsaken has its benefits. Let me see... I am able to practically live underwater. I can stay submerged 233% longer than any fleshy mortal. Yes, count it, 233%.
  • Oh, and now I am able to shrug off mind-controlling effects - BECAUSE I LACK A BRAIN!
  • And perhaps the best part, I now have a hungering for the flesh of other humanoids. Cannibalizing their rotten corpses grants me power. Yes, DE-LI-CIOUS...

Random dialogue with Godfrey:

  • Lord Godfrey says: For pity's sake Ashbury, cover yourself. Your leg bones are popping out.
  • Baron Ashbury says: I did not bring this wretched affliction upon myself, Godfrey, it was a "gift," remember? Now kindly enjoy the gift and shut up.


  • Oddly, as a Forsaken Ashbury has hair, but at the time of his death he was bald.
