Battlemap: Underground Tomb (20x30)
Underground Tomb Fowl air rises from a hole in the earth¸ skirted by crumbling¸ sunlit ruins. It brings the scent of death¸ damp¸ and decay-so out of place in the lush green of the exterior world... Deep below¸ sarcophagi sprawl-many of them¸ cracked open¸ and looted. A stone statue watches solemnly over the grave of a hero¸ the surrounding¸ muddy waters strewn with the bones of lost adventurers. Skeletons hang limp on breathless air¸ hung by great¸ thorny vines from the boughs of a once-great tree¸ now long dead. And locked away¸ deep within its heart¸ burns a mysterious¸ purple flame... Adventure Seeds Long ago¸ there was a great war waged by a lich who held the power of resurrection in his hands-a burning¸ purple flame. Many died¸ but eventually the war was won¸ and the Flame of Resurrection locked away deep¸ deep underground. Once¸ guards were placed outside the temple¸ until eventually the myth faded into obscurity¸ and the temple into ruin. Now¸ a cultist has found entrance into the tomb¸ and begun to use the Flame for her own purposes-first resurrecting the bones of those within¸ and then sending her minions to attack the nearby village. Once dead¸ she plans on resurrecting those¸ too-and building an army¸ to conquer the known world. You have been paid by the chief of the endangered village to help prevent this terrible eventuality by going to the source¸ and killing the cultist. Her undead minions have been tracked here-to an underground tomb. The elder of a village has paid you to enter an ancient¸ crumbling tomb¸ deep underground¸ in search of a seemingly dead tree. The tree¸ he claims¸ was the grandfather of an ancient tree that once stood over their graveyard¸ as guardian-but the tree was lost in a fire. He now needs a sample from the original tree¸ to plant and nurture into new growth. But¸ unbeknownst to the living¸ deadly vines have begun to grow over the original tree¸ choking any foolish enough to wander within reach of their grasping thorns... A woman claiming to be a cleric has paid your party to guard her while she enters an underground tomb¸ and resurrects her lost love-who lies at the feet of a great¸ stone statue. But terrible monsters lurk within the darkness¸ and she cannot be distracted while preforming the resurrection.
