In the past weeks, Moonglow has been troubled by
the presence of a powerful Liche, who had taken up residence in the Crypts of
the cemetery south of the town-proper. Though the dead rest uneasily in the

selflessly hurling themselves into the flames to hew at the Liche with sword and
At last the abomination fell with a strange spell upon its decayed lips.
Victory, for the Isle of Verity!
