Heavy is the head that wears the crown…
Although many Inner Sea kingdoms suffered during the Shining Crusade against the Whispering Tyrant, no other region suffered more than the Tyrant’s homeland, the Immortal Principality of Ustalav. For 600 years, the undead lich reigned over the domain of Ustalav, inflicting forgotten horrors and torments upon its people.
Following the Tyrant’s downfall over a thousand years ago, the region began to recover – but six centuries of despotic lich rule has rendered Ustalav a war-wracked shell of its former self; the land’s very spirit bears the remnants of evil’s taint, and its people have become insular and skittish.
Now, whispers that Ustalav’s skies are once again beginning to darken drift outward from the haunted realm. And three heroes are called into the shadowed heart of the kingdom, to pay their final respects to an old friend. But what horrors await them as they gather in this land of death and mystery?
