A native resident of Yew by the name of Aislyn went
to visit the grave of her late husband Jacob in the Yew cemetery. Upon
arriving, she was promptly attacked by a horde of angry, restless spirits
of origins unknown. Running for her life, she fled to Empath Abbey where
she shared news of this menace with adventurers.
Fearless adventurers from all over Yew made the trip afoot to the nearby
cemetery to see what they could do to relieve Yew of this newfound danger.
After a prolonged battle with the agitated spirits, one disengaged and
spoke to them, urging them to find a group of grave robbers that had disturbed
The restless spirit seemed to hold no concern for the valuables stolen
from the graves, but told the adventurers in a mournful voice that the
spirits would not rest until the remains of Richard Cornell were returned.
Traveling a short distance south along the road, the adventurers soon
came upon a small band of brigands who immediately turned to attack them.
The adventurers fought valiantly and soon those wretched thieves who had
not fled them lay about the road, no longer a danger to anyone. The adventurers
then found a chest among the debris of the battle, holding what appeared
to be the loot the thieves had taken from the graves. Among the gold,
jewelry, and other various treasures lay the grisly remains and a small
book written in a lady's hand and signed Jasmine Cornell.
My dearest Richard,
I send this as my last farewell to the one man I have loved my whole life
On thy rest I have placed a blessing.
Thy long rest shall be peaceful, my love, or a curse befall any who disturb
The adventurers swiftly returned to the cemetery to hand the remains to
the restless spirit who had spoken to them. The spirit appeared immediately
calmed, carrying the remains and the book into the crypt. Letting out
what sounded like a long sigh, it withdrew from sight along with the rest
of the lingering spirits in the cemetery.
May their rest never again be disturbed.
