Rise of the Runelords
Catacombs of Wrath
An ancient temple dedicated to Lamashtu which has been forgotten. It now lies burried under the town of Sandpoint as a result of the Earthfall event which took place over 10,000 years ago. Much of the temple has been destroyed but several chambers and tunnels remain intact for exploration.
Your adventuring party actually stumbled upon the catacombs during their first adventure. But they were not the first. The daughter of Father Ezakien Tobyn, who was the towns’ Priest, had a teenage daughter who discovered a secret entrance to the catacombs. Naualia was actually an adopted aasimar daughter. She used the location as a secret meeting with her boyfriend. It was within the catacombs she became pregnant and sealed not only her fate, but the fate of countless others. The sexual act performed within the ancient temple caused an evil to posses Nualia who would then become a servant to Lamashtu.
Nine months later with the birth of her deformed and monstrous baby, Nualia was confined to the church. Her baby was killed and the event was never to be spoken of. Nualia’s evil intent grew over the years as she planned for the destruction of Sandpoint and the sacrificing of it’s citizens to the Mother of Monsters.
Five years later, Nualia stole her foster father’s remains from the Sandpoint Boneyard and burned them in a dark rite to Lamashtu. She would later fall under the sword of Dogen and Hell-Furian who confronted the transformed Nualia and brought peace to her soul.
