At the edge of the woods behind the manor house is the old family tomb with stairs leading down to the crypts below. Except the stoneworks beneath are evidently not a family crypt.

Four Demon Temple

What we find under the old tomb is a reliquary of objects and remains of those dedicated to various dark masters through the history of the family. In the four “corners” of the reliquary are statues of demonic creatures fierce and bizarre – each with descriptions of their names and alternate forms, how to contact them, and what they prefer as sacrifices and gifts. The one statue in the lower right of the map has had most of its names and summoning details destroyed – chiseled away in an aggressive and fast fashion with no effort to disguise the vandalism except that someone then cleaned up the debris leaving none on the stone floors.

However, that dark lord’s lore is not truly lost, for a secret door leads to a further chamber that has all the information replicated there (probably by the same person who had it destroyed in the outer chamber) as well as a prepared summoning circle and a collection of scrolls and books on the demon’s lusts and desires.

On the upper right side of the map we come across an area dug out by another member of the family who went insane in the service of the Bloated Lord of the Seventy One Forms of Corruption. It is claimed that this area was dug out by hand and that the creator died here long ago, or that he lives on still as an emaciated derelict still not quite consumed by the Lord of Corruption.
