Kingmaker: Lures of Majesty
Location: About 40 miles southeast of Oleg’s Post, found on the banks of the Shrike River.
Nettle’s Crossing is a soggy, abandoned remnant. A thick, sagging rope still hangs across the river, all that remains of the bridge that once spanned it. A signpost at either end reads “Nettles’ Crossing – 5 coppers – ring bell for service.” A rusty bell hangs on each sign. On the south bank of the river, the crumbling remains of a burnt-down wooden building are slowly being overgrown by encroaching vegetation.
Here the adventurers encountered an undead monstrosity that rose from the river and told them that the Stag Lord and his bandits burned him alive. It tasked the party for revenge and to deliver the Stag Lord’s body and place it in the river. Unknown at the time, the creature cursed Kruznic Salvaris with an inability to sleep until the task was finished. After a about a week, when the party did deliver the Stag Lord’s body to the creature it dragged the remains down into the river with him and neither was ever seen again.
