The party rests and recuperates after a grueling battle in the warehouse. Ned has been turned into the authorities and they have asked our intrepid band of adventures to investigate the Neverdeath graveyard. Assuming the easiest access point into the graveyard would be from the southern gate, closest to the docks, they head out.
Upon arriving Diro notices purplish drops on the ground, assumed to be necrojuice, near the gate confirming their assumption. Pushing onward through the graveyard they eventually make their way to the main mausoleum, where Kyrixes notices what appears to be flashing lights all around. Calling out a challenge, the party is surprised when a softly glowing orb zips out in response. Lacking a better alternative, Kyrixes offers a tentative greeting to the orb to which it gladly responds.
It turns out the orb is a spirit who is unable to move on. It doesn’t remember its name only that it is unable to leave the confines of the city. Further questioning reveals that the orb has seen people coming and going with boxes into the main mausoleum and that the dead have become restless.
With nothing better to do the spirit accompanies them into the mausoleum, which upon closer inspection appears to be some kind of chapel. As the party spread out everything seems pretty normal but as Spritle and Kyrixes move towards the altar, the grinding sound of stone on stone greets them as the altar begins to move. A skeleton pops his head out and is greeted with a mighty swing of Kyrixes’s sword. Despite the best efforts of Kyrixes and Spritle the skeleton falls back down the hole with a clatter.
A few tense moments pass and when nothing happens they begin to descend the stairs under the altar. The narrow passage leads down to a closed door and when opened reveals a gruesome collection of undead creatures seeming under the control of a beholder kin. Attempts at diplomacy fail as Sled and Diro shoot the creature and battle is joined!
