The lords of Madness, Salleek, Morkeis, Zendion, and The Dread Emperor, High Grim Octavian Vesmarias sat in council beneath The Tower. The party made themselves known and were greeted rather kindly by these beings of immense power.

The mighty breath of the dragon felled these two in a single blast, and only by a bottle of blood was Lefty saved.
Lefty, having drunk the Blood Wine of Meldova is now of the undead and is a vampire. He was able to cheat this death, only to now walk among the fallen. However, this is not the time to solve his curse. They must enter the temple, and traverse it’s depths. They must find…
