Tomb of Horrors
The Tomb of Horrors was already ancient when the first necromancers journeyed here to found Skull City. Worshiping Acererak as a demigod, they named his divine aspect the Devourer, taking as his symbol the great green devil mouth that haunts the dreams of adventurers who survived the Tomb of Horrors.
At its height, Skull City housed nearly five hundred necromancers, apprentices, and slaves, plus twice that many zombies, skeletons, and corporeal undead servancts. Nagas, golems, and fouler creatures patrolled the city’s gates and streets, and the masters of its Black Academy escorted a stream of adventurers to the Tomb of Horror’s doors. Skull City’s heyday, however, was long ago.
The city is now home to three major factions, The Faithmarked, The Blackfire Disciples, and the Skullbreakers.
