Far away to the South in the Land of Sand, there lies the town of F'ar
R'emote. F'ar R'emote would be a top contender for the most unknown town in the
world if it had not been for the Master Liche I'rise Dad, who decided to make it
the home of his Great Pyramid.
I'rise Dad was quite busy traveling the known world, spreading terror
and transforming the living to the dead and the dead to the undead. When
I'rise Dad was finally killed on one of his business trips his spirit
returned immediately to the Pyramid and shortly after his bodily remains
followed, carried by some faithful acolyte. Dark rites were invoked
to establish a link with the spirit and force it back into it's
body. But the acolyte was neither strong nor experienced enough to do so
and now the spirit has to roam the Pyramid forever. Making the best from
the worst followers of the dark arts from all over the world visit the
Pyramid and seek wisdom and guidance from the spirit of I'rise Dad and
they bring gifts and sacrifices. One of those was the Heart of Gold an
ancient artifact in the possession of the house Neugebauer for
generations, but stolen in a dark and stormy night by a dark knight
storming into the Great Hall of castle Neugebauer and taking the artifact
as a item to trade for guidance from I'rise Dad.
At the shortest notice Count Neugebauer raised an army with all troops
available and set out to reclaim the Heart of Gold.
Naturally this was not the stealthiest of operations and when the army
was reported to cross into the Land of Sand, Tomb King B'rum a Baer sent out a
force to stop Count Neugebauer, before he and his troops would reach the
As we all know the Undead are not that fast and so they were not able to
intercept Count Neugebauer on his way, but were just able to meet him
directly on the field between F'ar R'emote and the Pyramid.
