"A thousand blessings upon you, friend. Ashwold's always had the occasional bandit. Nothing like this, though. What luck brings you to my door?"— Ulric and a hero(src)
"I have my reasons. However, I heard rumors that the dead had begun to rise in Ashwold. Do you know anything about that?"
"Of course! The whole guard’s been fighting them for weeks. My son joined up at the Crypt of Honored Dead just this morning. If you find him, I’m certain he’ll help you."
Ulric was the groundskeeper of Ashwold Cemetery.
In 1270, his house came under attack by a group of bandits led by Gordon the Jackal, their presence much more severe than what had come before. However, they were slain by a group of heroes. He thanked his rescuers, and told them how the Wortham Guard had been battling undead in the area for weeks. He directed them to find his son at the Crypt of Honored Dead, before heading off to find Samina.
