The PCs are contacted by Eliza Petulengro, a reserved,
dark-haired Varisian venture-captain, and asked to travel
to Oppara to look for the famed Pathfinder Bodriggan
Wuthers. Eliza knew that Wuthers was working on a dig
site beneath the House of the Immortal Son opera house
in Taldor’s gilded capital. Wuthers insisted the dig was
for an artifact that would raise the renown of the entire
Society after its recovery. A report on the dig was due a
month ago and Eliza worries something terrible has
happened to her famous former pupil.
Gaining access to the opera house’s nonpublic areas is
nearly impossible, so the PCs don their best clothing and
attend an opera, hoping to sneak away before the end to
look in on Wuthers’s dig site. Before they can execute their
plan, the theater is locked down magically, and a host of
zombies crash the opera and attack and feast upon the
upper crust of Taldan society. Unbeknownst to the PCs,
the Zyphus cult members replaced everyone in the House
of the Immortal Son and are using the opera to lure in a
crop of fresh living souls to turn into the walking dead.
After the opera house is reduced to Zyphus cult members
and their zombie cohorts, the lock down will be lifted by
Fel Bustrani. The zombie horde, mixed with the diseaseridden
Zyphus zombies, will crash into Oppara and
spread Zyphus’s will to all Taldor and beyond.
Once the theater is locked down, the PCs have many
options. The Zyphus Stone’s powerful magic prevents any
escape, so the PCs must use the bizarre attack as an excuse
to explore deeper into the opera house, finding zombies
of all sorts (including zombies who were, moments ago,
wealthy Opparan nobles) and a highly organized Zyphus
cult orchestrating the entire event. Having battled through
several encounters with zombies and cult members, the PCs
discover the storage area and the Chamber of the Stone and
confront the Zyphus cult leader, Fel Bustrani.
