The power of the mind and of magic defies your pathetic attempts to understand them, submit and you will be spared
A cold and cadavorous collection of nefarious necromancers.
A great treasure has been stolen from the Palace and taken to the nearby Temple to the Bitch-Goddess Atrath Klee. The King demands that the party go and retrieve it - the only snag is that the Temple is guarded by potent magic that will kill any male who steps inside. It's just as well that the King has a stash of Girdles of Gender Alteration for just this circumstance.
