Raiders of the Lost Tomb
The Living Dead
Undead are a menace in the jungles of Chult. Many are the result of an undead army that once marched on the ruined city of Mezro, but often the dead rise from the recently slain. The legend is that the necromancer's magic that raised such a horde of undead has become a part of the land, with the result that dead humans, other races, even animals, sometimes rise up and walk again. Because zombies are so plentiful, all races in Chult burn their dead and scatter the skeletons of dinosaurs and animals they kill. Only in the small ports and fortresses frequented by outlanders – such as Port Castigliar and Fort Beluarian – can graveyards be found.
