The Fall of Lady Death
Lady Death has fallen from the heavens, her ever-smoldering corpse left as a grim reminder of the Nine’s greatest triumph and the plague now faced by the living. For you see, without the guidance of the Lady of Finality the dead now roam the world in growing hordes. Ghouls feast upon the flesh of the living while geists drive their minds to madness.
Even with waves of undeath wandering the world, the races have found ways to survive. Families dismember the bodies of their loved ones, cities build great walls to keep the people safe, and burial grounds are set ablaze. A world without the release of death is a world of misery.
You and your allies are Gravehunters, specialized individuals that have mastered various ways of permanently disposing of the undead. You are tasked with reclaiming the land in the name of the living, at any cost.
