The entire adventure is set in the Ijar Desert where the party is studying at "The Academy" in the city of Vad Khara. They are hired by the Academy Masters to prepare a search and rescue team to find a couple of graduating students who should have been back from their desert mission a few days ago. During their search of the missing students, they will come across a much larger problem - a problem that bodes ill for the entire city, as the dead kings of old have awoken to reclaim their kingdom.
The adventurers will have to dispatch each of the dead kings, along with their followers, to destroy the threat against Vad Khara. But... perhaps they weren't the *real* threat at all... The ending of this adventure will provide a nice twist which can easily be worked into a much longer campaign.
