Encounter 3 in our ASOBH Campaign: Whispers of the Lich King
Arcane sigils in the ruins of St Cuthberts direct the adventurers to the Four Sisters: the ancient Scrying Stones deep on the Felldren Woods. Approaching the stones, the clerics sense the foul spirit of necromancy in the air. The elves split off to approach the stones from the flank while the clerics utter quick prayers, anoint their weapons with sacred oils, and move to confront the abomination head on.
As soon as the elves crest the hill, a swarm of shambling undead emerge from a copse of trees. A pack of malicious Barrow Rats charges the elf spell casters.
While the slaves of the undying darkness have greater numbers, the power and prowess of the elves quickly wins the day.
At the Sisters, a vile Necromancer appears accompanied by a savage ghast and a rabid hell hound. To add to the surprise, a vampire launches himself from the dark trees and attacks Norbert and Reinhoch
The faith of the clerics prevails as each dispatches one of the depraved slaves of darkness.
Victory! Now the heroes can consult the Four Sisters.
