The date is Kythorn the third of the year of the Awakened Sleepers, 1484 DR. Over the past five years the dead have become extremely restless. A corpse lumbering through a field is as common a threat now as a pack of wolves in a forest. Whole graveyards just wake up and slaughter entire towns and news of such things has become normal. The number of death cults has risen dramatically, bringing the worship of beings such as Orcus and Vecna widespread. Doom sayers spread fear that it is the beginning of the end. Kelemvor’s doomguides have no answers as to why such things are happening, just that we have to trust that the Lord of the Dead will see us through such a hard time. Even as they say such things, they themselves get slaughtered by the undead and Kelemvor’s temples get pillaged just the same, as the deity remains silent. Who will force the undead back into their eternal slumber? Who will uncover those behind such heinous acts? Who will lead the fight against death itself?
