Written by Zorgoth, a dragonkin, the notes contain comments on his experiments to enhance the strength and aggressiveness of dragons in order to turn the tide on the war on humanity during the Fourth Age. The notes on Ungael indicate that Zorgoth had begun switching to blue dragons for his experiments, resulting in the creation of his vorkath, a word for "pathetic failure" in the Dragonkin language. In addition, he speculates that an Elder Artefact may have once been present on the island, as he could sense its residual energy.

Transcript[edit | edit source]
There's a familiar power on this island. Could the stone have once rested here? Or was it another one of her wretched artefacts? Whatever it was, it has long since gone. However, this lingering power could still be of use, we just need to find a way to harness it.
For so long we have been tweaking the spores to no effect. For this trial, I decided we should change the subject instead. Green has failed us so far, maybe Blue will have better results. Luckily for us, there are no shortages when it comes to our failed kin.
Lithkren has a plentiful supply of the fungi needed for our trials. However, there's another island in that region with an even greater range of flora. I decided to visit the island, to see if it held any useful secrets, but what I found was most unexpected, Skeka. I'd long since assumed that she'd fallen to the humans. Instead, she was there, performing experiments of her own. I tried to convince her that our cause was the right one, but she dismissed me. For now it seems, that island is off limits.
This facility is a great improvement on the previous, the cold here makes it much easier to store the samples. However, obtaining new ones is not always easy. We are so far away from Lithkren that new samples are often lost or damaged. As our operation grows, I feel we will soon need even more room to work. To that end, I have ordered the construction of a new facility, this one on Lithkren itself. It's not ideal, being so close to her is a risk, but to have immediate access to all the samples we need will be of great benefit.
Another trial, another failure. This was only the second time a subject survived the process. But once again, it was a disappointment. The strength in this one was phenomenal, a true sight to behold. However, it lacked the aggression needed. It was another vorkath, a pathetic failure. I should have let it live, a beast that strong would likely have still had a use. However, my anger got the better of me, and I destroyed it.Human forces are on the move. We don't know how they found the island, but that is irrelevant now. Luckily for us, the new facility is ready. I've ordered that all important materials be transported there at once. In the meantime, I intend to provide the humans with a little distraction. Seems like the vorkath will have a use after all.
