“The Moon stands high in the sky as you approach the hidden gates of Elberor Crypts.
Ancient monks built this place as a test of courage and sacrifice.
A powerful spell prevents the entrance of those using weapons and year after year, adventurers looking for gold enter these tunnels unarmed to meet their doom.
In your hands rest the Shield of Eternal Night, an ancient relic of unknown origin, unknown age, unknown purpose, just found in your last dungeon raid. You ask yourself what kind of power hides these cold metal bars.
These thoughts give place to fear as the crypt’s front door now appear in front of you.“
