Recently, a mysterious plague covered Aram in a red mist. When the party investigated, they found that the mist was turning some of the citizens of the town into undead, while it made others crazy (“Trees don’t talk!”). The party discovered that the source of this mist was the recently resurrected child of the town’s mayor and his wife, who exhaled the mist with every breath. The mayor explained that a “Tall man in dark robes, wearing a ceramic mask,” appeared at their home almost immediately after the child died with the offer to bring him back. Once the child was resurrected, the man vanished. The party was able to successfully end the curse by attacking the presence that possessed the child, but the child did not survive the process. After the mist had cleared, the party stayed in Aram for a month to help rebuild the town. Though filled with sorrow over the loss of his son, the mayor rewarded the party with a Ring of Minor Spell Storing (3), that contained two resurrection spells, as well as a modest home.
