The Skies of Velaris
Dig Site 2
Dig Site 2 is an archaeological expedition currently underway in Semba’al, the capitol city of Petrassa. The site of the dig, underneath a temple of Erathis, was theorized by Capron the Wise to be the tomb of the Faenian noble house of Lairtas. This family was supposedly one of the most powerful factions in the Faenian government at the time of its collapse, and was thought to hold most of the military might of the empire in its final days.
The dig recently has been the scene of multiple reports of attacks by the undead, evidence which points to illegal necromantic activity within the tomb. Further investigation by the crew of the Cloudskimmer has revealed that the Heir of Faenan was attempting to resurrect the old court in order to assert himself or herself as the new leader of the empire. Thus far, the necromancy has produced little more than mindless undead, with the possible exception of one Captain Traghan, a deceased officer of the Lairtasian guard who was raised well enough to return him somewhat to his senses, albeit without his sanity.
