For generations the Marescu family governed the towns and villages of the northern Svalich Woods with justice and integrity. A single night of terrible evil caused it all to crumble. Today the once formidable Marescu Keep lies in ruins deep in the Svalich Woods and an undead horror stalks the shores of Lake Zarovich.
The townspeople of Riciu have learned to fear the dark shores of Lake Zarovich on moonless nights when black clouds blot out the starlight. Rumor, spoken only in hushed whispers, tells of a mournful and bewitching song that plays among the forest trees along the shoreline. Find the right person in the right tavern, get him several tankards into his ale, and a story emerges—remarkably consistent storyteller to storyteller—of a weeping maiden, haunting in her beauty, whose presence means certain death to all but the most fortunate.
