Crypt of the Everflame
Almost 200 years ago, when the land that was to become Nirmathas was still a vassal of the empire of Cheliax, the northern reaches of the Fangwood were a wild and untamed place. The crusades that laid low the Whispering Tyrant to the north were a distant memory, and those who remained were intent upon keeping the orcs of Belkzen and the remaining undead from Ustalav in check. As a result, the great forest was full of danger, from marauding orcs to deadly predators, making it unsafe for merchants hoping to trade with the growing community of Skelt in the foothills of the Mindspin Mountains to the west…
You set out from your quiet town on an annual rite of passage: to secure the everburning flame from the crypt of founder Ekat Kassen. But as the chill breezes of autumn turn into the harsh winds of winter, you’ll undergo a far greater test than you imagined.
Crypt of the Everflame deals with the intricacy of honor and rite of passage, as well as survival in the face of the unknown. First level characters leave the comforts of home to adventure in the wild unknown in order to bring back the sacred flame so that their village may survive the coming winter.
