Traveler! In a medium-sized settlement, the family that owns the mining operation in the area has profited from the spoils of business for eight generations. Currently they are wealthy and want for nothing. What no one knows is that a dark secret has been passed down the generations. All that they have does not belong to them, not entirely. Their ancestor robbed another local family of this wealth and passed down the secret.
All of those guilt-ridden ancestors were too greedy to give back to the other family who remain poor laborers and hard workers to this day. They passed the secret down and expected their descendants to do something about it. This strong guilt has reawakened the bodily remains of the ancestors and family members in the family crypt. The new head of the family is a young lord who knows about the secret but doesn’t want to act on it…
This is a level 3 adventure with a bit of exploration, dungeon-crawling for glory and treasure, and the opportunity to correct a social situation that has been wrong for generations. Here’s a low-def preview of this illustration:
Here’s a close-up of the family crypt where patriarchs and lowly family members have awoken, undead and guilt-ridden. Is there a way to stop them for once?
The dungeon’s upper hall features a 40-foot-deep orifice that looks down onto the patriarch’s grave. The characters can jump down from this area to confront them or attempt to find an easier way down and bid their time.
