Reports from town criers throughout Sosaria are streaming in regarding hordes of undead swarming the graveyards. We don't advocate you attempting to subdue these forces on your own. Early reports from the field suggest their numbers can quickly escalate beyond the abilities of one warrior. Should the brave of Sosaria decide to combine forces you may have a chance.
Here we have one of the first reports from the graveyards of Britain. The warrior Delo describes the escalation, "I was talking with two other warriors about how the town criers often exaggerate when the 9000 liches stumbled out of their graves and crypts." (Quote is slightly modified for story and lore.)
There have been sightings of something both beautiful and grotesque. Those with a keen eye have been able to glimpse the gem encrusted. The reasons for the sudden appearance of this mysterious mutation is unknown at present. What is known is that their gem encrusted skins increases not only their defense but also their offense. Exercise extreme caution when in the graveyards of Britannia. As of now only two graveyards have been attacked. We suspect someone or some force is using the graveyard to test the success and failure of these mutations. Lord British has declared a state of emergency and promises to squash this uprising before it gets to out of hand.
Lord British has instructed his brightest alchemists and scribes to delve into the histories of Sosaria, looking for information on these gem encrusted mutations. These alchemists and scribes have not uncovered anything. In fact not since Mondain and his black gem of immortality has an individual or force controlled enough magical power to create such things. Lord British has once again made contact with The Stranger to inform him of the present situation.
