Many large human settlements are built over the remains, ruins, and foundations of earlier civilizations. In this adventure, an adventurous medusa named Vithara discovered an ancient ruin that appears to be a temple of sorts to a tentacled entity from the Far Realm. She does not understand everything about the place or the altar yet. But she followed her instinct, prayed to the altar, and made sacrifices to it. She was rewarded! some of the sacrificed humanoids returned from the dead as sentient undead abominations under her control.
Vithara has a bounty on her head in the large city above for her crimes while participating in the underworld with other criminal gangs. A group of adventurers looking for her to collect the reward may track her to the new lair she just started at the Altar of Tentacles.
