The Undead Rise Near Yew

Zarkhon Xenok

UP: Pacific

    This time the call from the town criersconcerned the city of Yew. “Large groups of Undead spotted in the YewCemetery”, bellowed the town criers. Once again I rushed to the site of theaction and quickly found a spot to hide.

The site was much the same as it was in Cove just a few days past. Liches,Wraiths, Spectres, masses of Zombies, and hordes of Skeletons. In fact, allseemed strangely similar to what had happened in Cove until midway into thebattle with the vile creatures. From out of nowhere a Lich Lord arose that beganto attack the mighty heroes.

Several warriors engaged the creature while mages hit it with their spells. Itwas a hard fought battle, and the heroes finally defeated the foul being, but afew bodies lie scattered about as proof of its strength.

Was this the leader of the forces? Did this occurrence have any link to theattacks a few days ago in the Cove Cemetary? Are there still more attackscoming? Let us simply hope that the brave heroes are available if the dead riseagain, with their seeming-Leader among them.
