A Necromancers Twisted Web sees the party having to assist with an undead incursion on the village of Limevale. They soon discover this is not the first attack. Interacting with the villagers, it becomes clear one of the young men who was mistreated by some of the more influential leaders of the village is behind the attacks, wanting the village to suffer as he had. The party then sets off to find a cave harbouring our mistreated antagonist as well as many different undead creatures. They discover the man has the soul of a drow necromancer trapped in his body and is helping him raise the undead. The drow wants to be free of his new host and is biding his time for the perfect moment.
Odo is a poor unfortunate soul who has been tormented for most of his life, but his luck just got worse. Possessed by and under the influence of a drow necromancer, he has led a constant barrage of undead attacks against his former village. Will Odo shrug off this possession? Or will the drow take complete control? Does the party have what it takes to stop either of them?
