Dungeon Siege II Friday Update

Gas Powered Games has posted another Friday update on the official Dungeon Siege II website, which includes information about a weapon called Crimson Hunter and a mage named Lyssanore. Check it out:
This staff is possessed by the spirit of a member of the Elven Order of Crimson Hunters, an elite group of warriors and mages that dedicated themselves to defending the Elven people. Its curved blades and elegant craftsmanship belie its Elven origin, and its markings identify it as being the weapon of a Crimson Hunter. The staff imparts some of its ghostly nature to its wielder, making it easier for them to dodge attacks and allowing them to absorb life energy from their foes.
