Dajaheel is in one of the tents. They’ve tried everything to figure out why the Reachmen and the Worm Cultists are here. An undercover agent, Belron, has proposed two options: cut out a cultist’s heart with a magical dagger then reanimate him or her, or use a globe to collect the cultists’ memories. You can choose which one you want to do.

After you find the information, talk to Lieutenant Belron who is across from the tents. The Reachmen made a deal with the cultists. The cultists reanimated Sinmur, in exchange for a blessing from the Lord of Brutality. Stral himself is undergoing this ritual right now in the central ruin.

There are three other hearts to collect: the Graveborn Fleshripper’s, Soulrender’s, and Beheader’s hearts. They are all south of the Woods’ icon on your map. You will know which enemies to kill because they will be standing or kneeling in the same kind of purple aura that surrounded Thorntongue.
