Join us on Sunday as we fight to stay alive in a live play through of The Legend of Acererak!


Somewhere under a lost and lonely hill of grim and foreboding aspect lies a labyrinthine crypt. It is filled with terrible traps and not a few strange and ferocious monsters to slay the unwary. It is filled with rich treasures both precious and magical, but in addition to the aforementioned guardians, there is said to be a demilich who still wards his final haunt. Be warned that tales have it that this being, who goes by many names, Acererak, possesses powers that make him nearly undefeatable! All accounts conclude that it is quite unlikely any explorers will ever find the chamber where the demilich lingers, for the passages and rooms of the tomb are fraught with traps, poison gases, and magical protections. Furthermore, the demilich has so well hidden his lair that even those who avoid the pitfalls will not be likely to locate their true goal. Only large and well-prepared parties of the bravest and strongest should even consider the attempt, and if such a group does locate the tomb, they must be prepared to fail. Any expedition must have magical protections and weapons, and must be equipped with every sort of device possible to ensure survival.

The lich Acererak, also known to many as Death, has recently made his presence known by sending forth his minions, Pneumonia, Meningitis, Leukemia, and Diphtheria, to kidnap children from a local orphanage. The Goddess known as Mercy has gathered together heroes from across the multiverse to dive into the depths of despair and hopelessness and bring light to the darkness. Our heroes will go deep into the lich's lair, risking life and soul to rescue the children from death. YOU can join them, and assist them in their efforts.
