Whether they followed the Party knowingly, or stalked them to the Temple, the Old Monk from town reveals their motives. They were one of the Pirates that ransacked this place. They wanted to remove the curse on the gemstone, and claim the riches for themselves. The Pirate used the Party to help get them here, but now they stand on the graves of their old crew, they call forth their spirits to help them defeat the Party. The Pirate removes their robes to reveal a weapon and grimoire. Their healing magic and religious knowledge came from their study of necromancy!
Things to Prepare:
- Stat Blocks for the Necromancer Pirate, and some of his Ghostly Crew Members
- A Temple room littered with destroyed furniture and damaged stonework.
- Maybe the Party gains assistance from the Ghostly Monks that reside here.
- A Grimoire of Spells that the Necromancer Pirate may know.
On Success: The Party defeats the Pirates and finally clear out the Temple for good.
On Failure: The Party is hurt and must retreat, or face death.
Reward: The Necromancer’s Grimoire, and a diary detailing a location of other Pirates.
