The party makes their way north to the village of Drury Mill, where they find that the outriders who normally patrol the roads are nowhere to be found and the village is besieged by a plague of undead. Following a lead from the mayor’s daughter, the party tracks the walking corpses out of the village, where they discover that the “necromancer” responsible is Nelven Dworden, ne’er-do-well apprentice to the local cleric who has organized the entire thing as a scam to steal from the local merchants and shirk his responsibilities. The party journeys on, with slightly less faith in humanity.
