UP : Yew
Reports from the dungeon shame are that several adventurers ran
afoul of a new creature near the graves located on the first level of the dungeon. A
Skeletal Lord, its bones the decayed yellow of a long dead human, appeared in a
sheet of flame and caused Bone magi and Skeletal Warriors to rise from the hard packed
dirt of the dungeon floor.
The Skeletal Lord commanded these creatures as though they were
children, and on at least one occasion referred to them as his offspring. The Skeletal
Lord disappeared and reappeared frequently, always accompanied by a sheet of flame that
marked his passage.
A group of brave adventurers did try to do battle with the creature,
after slaying all his children, but he disappeared into one of the unmarked
graves in the dungeons chambers.
The thing made several cryptic comments about adventurers staying
away from its home, and never returning to its abode, but it made no effort to
clarify these remarks, it simply continued to send its minions forth to do battle
Always be careful in the Dungeons, but be especially careful near
the graves in Shame. Theres a new reason to fear.
