At the heart of the city of Lothburgh lies a vast cemetery: the Greyvaults. Five bodies have been stolen and a missing person has just turned up in its morgue. As players investigate the mystery that links both of these events, they will discover the unpleasant truths behind the workings of life and death, and how far a man will go to get back what he has lost.
Characters of sixth level will follow clues from the Greyvaults cemetery to the local university, where they uncover secrets and bitter rivalries. All of this will lead them to discover a man at the end of his rope, and the bitter fruits of his insanity.
