Raiders of the Lost Tomb
The Death Curse
The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.
When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised–and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic point to the curse originating somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rain forests.
Adventurers and wealthy patrons – those most likely to have had a resurrection spell cast on them – have scrambled into action, using every means at their disposal to find out the cause of their fatal affliction.
