Intended for mature readers. There has been some debate as to whether the events in this novella are officially “canon. It’s something of a moot point though, since none of the events or characters in Demonsbane have any direct connection to events in the main plot of the Diablo series. During the Night of SoulsSiggard awoke with barely any trace of memory of how he got there, or what happened to him.
His last memory was to be with Earl Edgewulf ‘s army at Blackmarch defending Entsteig from an invasion. Just he couldn’t remember who the enemies were. He walked and couldn’t recognize his location.
Following the road, he found a three-way crossroads. On the side, a hoisted corpse hanged from a tree. In the mist, he saw strange things, ghosts. Fiablo was the Night of Souls, when it is said that spirits return for vengeance and to roam the land in penance.
He made a campfire, and shortly fell asleep. In his dreams he saw Earl Edgewulf and his army. He is a shield-man and he was part of the shield wall at Blackmarch. The enemy approached, and in terror he gazed at demonic doglike creatures wielding axes and goatmen among other horrors.
With a shake, a hooded figure with gray vestments woke him up asking if he could share the campfire.
Tyrael asked Siggard what brought him here of all nights. Siggard doesn’t remember how he got there. Last he knows, he was at the battle of Blackmarch, and based on the Night of Souls being today, that battle took place two nights before. Tyrael told Siggard he was 10 leagues south of Blackmarch, two days away. But he recommended him to go to Entsteig, for bad things have happened at Blackmarch.
Siggard still wished to get back there to find out what happened to the army and to protect his wife and recently born daughter. The night of souls was nigh over, and Siggard was alleviated that all the souls and bizarre visions would vanish with the dawn.
Mysteriously, the robed figure was no longer there when Siggard turned around. Siggard continued his journey toward Blackmarch through the roads, and while resting a vizjerei mage woke him up, asking permission to join him. Sarnakyle was an adventurer, exploring the country.
He didn’t hesitate offering his aid to Siggard and decided to follow him toward Blackmarch. Sarnakyle had heard that the army of Entsteig had fallen to demons. As a master of magic, he was well versed on the demon lore and had manipulated demons himself.
He considered he could be useful to Siggard on whatever he would face in Blackmarch. After two days of travel, they stopped by a nearby village, not too far from Siggard’s village. Demons had ravaged it.

The buildings were ablaze, and a pile of decayed skulls were found at the townsquare. This bore ill thoughts for Siggard about the fate of his family. They continued their journey toward Bear’s Hill village. There they found another pyramid of skulls, and among them was the head of Emilye. Siggard saddened before the remains of his wife. Sarnakyle detected three observers nearby lurking in the shadows. Tylwulf and Camylle were among the few survivors of Bear’s Hill village. Sarnakyle found suspicious the demons would leave survivors.
Both were invited to eat and rest at Tylwulf’s cottage. There Camylle asked Siggard what happened to him these past days. He only remembers the shield wall and some enemies in the forest, but all memory afterward is blurred.
He thinks he appeared at Aranoch two days later during the Night of Souls. When it was time to sleep, Sarnakyle asked Siggard to prepare for battle, to his surprise. Sarnakyle thought there would be treachery. First, how could there be ten survivors when the demons had killed everyone everywhere they had gone. And how did they know he was a vizjerei and more importantly — one of the Spirit Clan.
Only two possibilities here could have known him for what he was: With lights off, Siggard and Sarnakyle hid on each side of the door. Tylwulf entered the diaboo and stabbed the forms under the blanket aiming for the heart. Siggard put his blade on Tylwulf’s throat, while Sarnakyle held Camylle at her waist with a dagger on her throat. Siggard demanded demnbane know the truth. The 10 men that survived were offered power by the demons. They had simply to give them everyone pledged to the Light.
They convinced the villagers to surrender to the demons, diahlo they would give them mercy. However, the demons killed them all where they stood. The babies and children eaten by the demons.
The survivors had some of their spirits, and even a share of the babies’ flesh to eat. In horror after hearing this, Siggard killed them both. Then slayed the other eight that came to confront him. Sarnakyle’s experience with demons told him this demonic dmonbane was led by an archdemon. A baron of Hell. Lesser demons won’t follow one of their own kind. One of great power had to led them. Siggard swore for the blood of his wife and that of the ten he had slain that he would find this archdemon and destroy it.
Half-way to Brennorthere was an inn where Siggard’s father once took him to in his childhood. He took Sarnakyle there to rest before continuing their journey, but the Inn was burned and its inhabitants dead.
A storm approached, and Siggard told Sarnakyle the only thing between the Inn and Brennor was a barrow-ground to the south of the Inn. The barrow was where the ancient kings were buried. There they protected themselves from the weather and lightning. One of the crypts had strange runes and skeletons merged down onto the walls. One of the tombs had a runed sword. Sarnakyle identified it as forged by Velund. The swords were forged by him to be great allies daiblo its owner.
If the sword chooses its master, it serves him to death. If Siggard was chosen, the sword would call to him and if Siggard said the true name of the sword, it would be his.
The sword sung to Siggard in his mind. It sung of glory and battles, of armies of angels and demons. A battle at the gates of Heaven, and a word formed in Demonbanee lips.
The skeletal limbs on the walls rose as if ready to strike the intruders. Siggard said the name: The limbs and skulls rested back to their former position. Sarnakyle said these were the guardians of the sword. The storm stopped abruptly, and they left the crypt to find a better place to sleep through the night. Siggard slept while holding the sword Guthbreoht. It sung to him during his dreaming. At Blackmarch, the shield wall was crushed in some places as boulders were thrown into the crowds of Entsteig soldiers, flattening entire groups.
Spear-men kept holding their ground against the demons though.
