With Captain Jack Sparrow at the helm it is only a time before his crew begins hunting for cursed gold that will give them immortality, even if the immortality comes at a heavy price.
There are legends of a treasure beyond the grasp of death. Countless gold coins, valuable gems, and totems of old religions. This treasure belonged to one of the Tyrants that arose amoungst the Imass before they undertook their ritual. Following the ritual’s completion, this now immortal Tyrant locked his treasure away deep within the far reaches of the Warren Tellan, where he could retrieve it at any time, yet it would be safe from cloying hands. Now there seem to be hands that search for the legendary treasure.
At the end of the journey they will come across a massive domed building made of gleaming white stone inlaid with brass. Inside they will find the fires do not reach, and there is a single large room with a vaulted ceiling and treasure scattered all across the floor. The wealth is nearly unimaginable.
Inside the large chamber is also the remains of the Tyrant, and he still clings to his undeath and treasure. Bonecaster Thlukk was a large man in life, and the drying of his frame still leaves him imposing, and now all the more frightening. He will not tolerate trespassers within his treasure room, and will summon up the remnants of the T’lan Imass that he inslaved while still upon the mortal world. He and his servants will then attempt to slaughter all the intruders.
Should the pirates be able to vanquish Bonecaster Thlukk, all of his enslaved Imass will vanish into the dust, finally able to rest. Then the looting of treasure, and removing it from this scorching plane of existence can begin.
However, amidst all of the standard wealth and valuable items that can be acquired within the hall, there is one collection of treasure that should best be ignored. It is a massive stone chest filled with 100 ancient, and incredibly valuable, red-gold coins. They will be accepted by most that accept normal gold coins, but if they can find anyone that collects such rarities they should be able to make upwards of 100 GC per coin.
Being in possession of these coins exposes people to the blind power of Tellan. This is treated as exposing them to the Ritual of T’lan, which converts all of them into undead versions of themselves. This functions by converting them into an Undead creature with Damage Resistance, and also gives them a Regeneration 0 which cannot be increased by any means. Their LP can only be restored via supernatural means.
Once cursed by the gold, it is nearly impossible to ever revert back to their original form, but it has been proposed to be possible.
