Zil’dejin, Morgue, Typhus, and Mikhal head into an adjoining crypt with cursed sarcophagi that constantly release zombies. After clearing most of the zombies and toppling the sarcophagi, thereby preventing more from freeing themselves, the party continues to find a smaller room with only one sarcophagus and the possessed skeleton of the former warlord of the keep, a man named Sir Keegan. Keegan tests them, and finds them worthy. He offers them his sword, called Aecris, and some artifacts in secret compartments in the altars found in the crypts they just left. These artifacts take the form of small images of dragons, carved (apparently) from platinum. After this, they set up camp in the crypt for the night.
Notes: Splug died in this encounter, having been basically ordered by Typhus to act as a very frail meat shield.
