Heroes of the Everflame
Asar returned to necromantic life as a powerful skeletal champion to reclaim the riches Kassen stole from him.
In 4514 AR a man by the name of Asar Vergas arrived in Kassen’s Hold. Claiming to be a former adventuring companion of the town’s founder, he felt Kassen had cheated him before they had parted ways. Vergas and a group of mercenaries raided the settlement for a period of two months before their camp was located. Kassen mounted an attack on the raider’s stronghold, slaying Vergas and scattering the mercenaries before succumbing to wounds received during the fighting. Those killed on both sides were buried in the crypt that served as the site of the battle.
In the year 4714 AR looters entered the tomb housing the remains of Ekat Kassen and those that died in his fateful battle with Asar Vergas, their actions resulting in the animation of the remains housed within. The event remained undetected until villagers partaking in the rite of passage known as the Quest of the Everflame journeyed to the crypt and, ultimately, returned the restless dead to inactivity.
