Rotting Glades

Heading inland from here they will pick up the trail to the necromancers easily, it is lined with fetishes and totems. Ahead they can hear movement as of bone scraping on stone. As they crouch in the undergrowth to hide, they are surprised by a vine horror that is rapidly joined by a second spellfiend. As they attack, the alerted decrepit skeletons join the melee.

Near to the entrance to the earthworks the party can approach with some confidence as the ground is clear and offers little cover, but once within it is dark with many corners fo foes to surprise them. Furthermore, the red sandstone walls have been covered with a scree of mud with many bones embedded within, some of those bones are restless.

The antechamber is defended with a glyph of warding doing 4d6+4 necrotic damage and on a +10 vs reflex (p 90 DMG) at the same time 12 decript skeletons almost invisible where they have been coated in mud and set against the wall.

The collapsed chamber was an area where initial excavation was done for the earthworks, it is clear that the area is unsafe and there are effectively rockslide traps covering the area.

The morgue is a storage area for the slain captives that the necromancer has delivered, they are stripped bare and as yet unanimated, however any noises here will be heard from the dry rooms where the zombies await.

1 Zombie Hulk 350
1 Chilborn Zombie 250

The dead end beyond the zombies appears to be a storage room in which smashed bones and rubbish have been thrown. If the praty investigate they will disturb the skeleton tomb guardian who will rise from the bones and attack attempting to drive a party member into the false floor pit a the ack of the room.

Coming in the other direction, the pool chamber is reached first - here the necromancer strips the flesh from the bodies to make her minions, the Gibbering Mouther that obliges is hidden beneath the surface of a stinking pool that must be waded through to get to the other side. A few skeletal minions also stir in its murky depths.
