Many years ago, Torin the Black Prince led a bloody campaign to subjugate the kingdom under his iron rule. When his enemies united to drive him off, he made a deal with a dark god to gain incredible power. He was turned into a vampire and his men were twisted into ghouls and ghasts. Despite this, the forces of light and good were able to drive him back. Defeated, but unwilling to die, he sealed himself away inside the temple where he first gained his powers. Now, this temple has been rediscovered, and any who venture into it fail to return. Fearing what might come out of it, the locals have offered a reward to anyone able to enter it, clear it out, and return alive.
