From the Desk of Lord Victor Nefarius is a note that players receive from if they fail to kill him within five hours of activating the quest , part of The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain, but still manage to kill him.
To Whom It May Concern,
How I love these games that we play.
I can only assume that if you are reading this letter, you have somehow, through miracle or divine intervention, managed to vanquish me. Preposterous, I know, but stranger things have happened in the history of this world.
As with all things in life, there is a glorious, silver lining of tragedy, chaos, and evil to this sorrowful tale. While you have slain me, you have done so in such a slow and disorderly fashion that I have had time enough to write this letter AFTER I destroyed your only hope of saving this world. The crushed red crystal powder is all that is left of your scepter shard.
