Imagine a place of unspeakable evil. It was built upon hopelessness and filled with unending terror and pain. This loathsome place shattered the life of everyone who ventured near. But through tremendous sacrifice and heroism, over the course of many years, it was finally gutted and its foul creator destroyed. Now imagine that the horror is beginning all over again.
The sinister wizard Acererak took great pains to safeguard his tomb. It took many years, and many more lives, before his evil was finally laid to rest. But though the demilich is gone, he is not forgotten. Others who would become as he was have traveled to the site of Acererak's tomb seeking the secrets of mastery of death. Slowly these pilgrims gathered, eventually building in the shadow of the tomb itself a community dedicated to the dark arts: Skull City.
But even these twisted necromancers have no inkling of the true evil that swells and crackles beneath their feet.

Review: This is it. Number one! The best adventure Iīve ever had the pleasure to play. This adventure is an epic struggle to find the Tomb of the ancient Wizard Acererak. Acererak died thousands of years ago, but he somehow was able to continue life as a Lich. His power grew and the PCs must find his hideout, in another dimension and stop him before his powers grow to strong. The PCs must travel long distances and visit many different places in search of a way to enter Acererakīs secret lair. First the PCs must search a vast swamp where itīs said a secret kult has its base, revering a long forgotten and forbidden religion. This is a highly deadly adventure, but itīs a breathtaking story and your players will never want to leave your home if you start playing!
