Nestled in the mountains and obscured by well placed trees lies a small village of undead. They are known as the graveborn .
These undead are all that remains of a lich's former army who met his fate at the hands of a travelling party of adventurers. they are known as graveborn among the local populace.
Graveborn are well covered in dark garb and reveal very little for their flesh is long gone and only bleached bone remains.
Graveborn culture is very xenophobic without the need for sleep and food the Graveborn are a serious and astute people without inns or taverns. To fill the long dark hours the Graveborn are excellent storytellers and often gather at a central hall to share and create tales. Also owing to their tireless nature they excel in industry and are highly knowledgeable. Ones standing in Graveborn society is based on age the older the individual the more respect and power they deserve as such the village is presided over by the oldest individual who is referred to as the chief. Death among Graveborn is a solemn affair because their numbers are so limited these who die are placed near the remains of the former lich's abode in the hope he may breathe life into them once more. Even though they understand the evilness of their masters actions he is revered among the Graveborn for he gave life to them from nothing. In Graveborn society only their former master has the ability and right to overrule the chief.
