For a long as anyone can remember, the residents of the sleepy community of Hephaestus’ Link have lived in the shadow of the Great Necropolis. A hidden city of the dead that rests upon a massive island floating less that 10 miles from island-ring community. No one in the town knows who built it or how it came to rest so near to their remote trading islands.. While most of the residents of Hephaestus’ Link feel slightly unnerved with the silent city looming over their community, most consider it a benign structure, being only a source of ghost stories for the elders to scare their grandchildren.

Fearing the rumors could stop valuable trade ships from docking, the mayor of Hephaestus’ Link has called upon adventurers to investigate this hidden city of the dead and discover why it has suddenly come to life again…
