The Rod of Seven Parts
Following his death, the Wizard King’s cyclopean island palace lay fallow for decades. As its former master found power in death, rising as the Lich King, so too did his palace find glory in death, becoming the island Necropolis. The island is now riddled with cemetaries, mausoleums and catacombs populated by the dead servants of the Lich King. Like elsewhere in the world, if offerings are not made to the dead, and if their grounds are not properly maintained, the dead will rise and grow angry with the living. It’s far too dangerous to make these capitulations to the dead at the center of the Necropolis, where the Lich King is strongest, but the Gatekeepers of the Empire have the calendar of regularly scheduled offering processions down to a science, which keeps the island mostly quiet.
