In a small dale of the township of Teva one day late Fall before the Sundering a Magic Weaver by trade named Barond and his master were walking down the trail through the farm lands towards the afore mentioned small dale when he noticed something odd. A robed man, who looked like no farmer, was digging through the soil like a mad man. Barond watched with puzzlement as the man digged and digged mumbling something about how he had found it. A town watch named Jacob noticed the same insanity and ventured over to find out what the fuss was about. At the moment the man digging stood up holding an Amulet high up screaming “I found it!”. When Jacob, Barond and his master started to approach and question what he had found the robed man chanted vile words and the earth around him started to till itself and from the soil rotting corpses began to spring forth.
Barond’s Master go to town and warn the people, Jacob the town watch was already running towards town to warn of the danger. As they raced for the town the robed man starting hovering in the sky cackling like a looney as his undead minions rose from the earth. Carmen the dale’s Apothecary in training heard a commotion outside her master’s shop. When she walked out her door Jacob ran past her, she asked what was going on and he yelled back “Stay in your shop!”. Moments later Barond and his master ran into town, Carmen asked the same of them, Barond informed her that undead were rising from the fields. Wanting to protect the town Carmen grabbed her spear and ran towards the danger warning all those she saw.
Jacob raced into the Watch Station and told his fellow Town Watch of the danger. Barond and his master joined them. Quickly they discussed this situation, Jacob and two other Town Watch would go and fight off the undead along with Barond while two other Town Watch would help bring the people to safety. Once agreed Jacob, Barond and two Town Watch ran to join Carmen to fend off the undead.
Meanwhile, Carmen faced the undead alone and out numbered. Quickly became surrounded she fought them off with all of her might. Just as things started looking dire Barond used his magic ways and shot forth a fan of flames at the undead around Carmen burning some of them to a crisp. Jacob and the two other Town Watch peppered the undead with arrows from afar (like skirts). Before not to long the undead creatures were defeated and the robed man had disappeared. As the group looked around for answers to what happened Carmen noticed a satchel and a book near the hole the robed man had dug.
Carmen, Barond and Jacob returned to the dale with the book and satchel. Barond’s Master looked at it and told Barond to take it the Cleric of Sarenrae in Teva. Jacob was ordered to escort Barond and Carmen volunteered to join them since she had to travel to Teva to get supplies for her master. So the next day the three started their journey to Teva….
