After returning to Varinth after subduing the Siren in the half-submerged Amidian temple, the adventurers learn of another, more dire problem facing the coastal villagers of the Mire: the undead. Just north of Mire Lira lies the abandoned village of Mire Bar, and more importantly, its crypts. Reports of sightings of animated or otherwise desecrated corpses led the adventurers to investigate.
Entering the crypts, the adventurers found several corpses, some of which were animated by a strange heat-seeking energy. Dispatching these with some difficulty, thanks to the eerily specific knowledge of Addison, the adventurers returned to Mire Lira to collect their payment from a grateful Varinth. After showing the pearl farmer a curious wand they found in the crypts, she suggested the group travel to Neruvah and seek the guidance of the priestesses of Ceremata.
