Finally, at long last, he and his crew had found it. They entered into a cavernous room with its walls lined with tomes of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Even more books filled shelves that stood in rows around the outskirts of the room. The scent of lime and mildew now had the added dimension of weathered paper mixed in.

So impressive that he didn’t notice the woman sitting at the table in the middle of the room, surrounded by piles of books and manuscripts. “More of you dullards, eh?” she said, standing up.

The Crypt Collection is a secret library containing information gathered by the Secret Society of Sorcerers. Its namesake comes from the fact that the various books and manuscripts in the collection are stored deep within the catacombs located just outside Lichden. Though the Church of Unity has heard rumors of its existence, any search party they send into the vast network of catacombs does not return.
