“Beware those gems that adventurers try to sell you. Before you know, they turn to fools’ gems”
Few things shine as bright as the jewels of Hell
A rare and diseased jewel, a canker fallen from the heavens
A glowing green stone flowing with the elemental power of evil
Thie pearly material is also known by the sinister name of Demon’s Tooth.
While bronze is cheaper, and steel is stronger, few materials are as desireable for weapons than proper Xanthanite.
A jewel to match my heart.
The Lady Givone
The PCs are hired by undead to rid their village community of an invasive necromancer.
As the PCs make their way, wherever they are going, they spot two zombies. The zombies approach but before the cleric can turn them, one starts throwing coins at the PCs while the other pleads with them, unable to pronounce the letters "L" and "H" due to some missing gums. "Peeth issen...no 'arm...coin...peeth issen!"
If the PCs don't slaughter the two zombies immediately, they will eventually come to learn that the two were chosen to find help by their brethren. The zombies want to hire the PCs to rid their community of an unwanted pest. An opportunistic necromancer.
Apparently, a small benign community of undead have taken residence in an abandoned village, living out their undeath as peacefully as the undead can. Recently, a malicious necromancer has invaded the village, and plans to enslave the entire populace with his malignant spells, raising a small army.
The PCs must battle the vile necromancer, even as he animates the very folks who hired the PCs in the first place, to slaughter them.
