More of a scholar at heart then a rough and tumble warrior, Brother Varsk stayed on after his training to mentor the younger initiates of Sarenrae as long as he could. It was in this capacity that he met Professor Petrol Lorrimor, for he visited the monsitary bearing an ancient object of unknown power. In the course of his stay, this object accidently infected one of the poor souls who came for healing, turning them into a ravenous ghoul. The creature killed two of the initiates, spreading the infection further. By the time the horror was discovered the things had cornered the good professor himself. In a fit of righteous anger, Grergof and his brothers were able to put down the beasts but not before they had taken still more innocents.

The loss of two of his students and so many innocents impacted Grergof greatly and he left his teaching position to research more about the undead. This research helped for a time, but in his heart he knew that The Dawnflower had called him to do more than just study. He had to go into the world to spread her light and ensure the dead never threated another.

Never the brightest nor the quickest, Brother Varsk was still one of the most well liked of the brothers for his compassionate nature, great strength and childlike love of games. For this reason it was with great sadness for all in the monastery when his time among them ended.

A man of calm and quiet devotion, he believes that showing others the ways of the Dawnflower though gentle guidance, a helping hand and shared toil will bring about more true conversions any iterant preacher screaming to the masses.

Grergof's Journal:

Flaming Skulls
Flying skulls, clearly undead that burn with fire. Unknown what happens you if you touch them, but they are clearly venerable to holy energy.

Undead who eat human dead. They also paralyze victims if they hit them.

Much like Ghouls but more powerful and can sicken someone with just the stench of their presence.

Harrowstone A prison for some of the worst prisoners in all of Ustav. Located outside of Ravengro.
It was destroyed in a fire and a bunch of people died. Professor was looking for a full List of people who died in the fire.
Confirmed to be haunted by Haunts and the abode of Undead.
House on the property is very dangerous.
North wall has many rats.
The whole property radiates a low level of evil. - Greater evil seems to exist below the prison.

There is a memorial to who died in the fire with 26 names on it. It was desecrated by blood one night. The blood showed a V.

Within the prison, We found items associated with 5 famous prisoners:
The Lopper - A magical Axe, The Piper of Illmarsh - A flute, the Mosswater Marauder - A hammer, Father Charlatan - Tangle of Holy Symbols and the Splatterman - A spellbook.

Various spirits associated with specific places and objects. They seem to repeat the same events over and over again. All can all be suppressed via holy energy, but in addition some seem vulnerable to other types of objects and energy. They can manifest with both visual and physical effects, impacting the environment.
Door Haunt - manifests visual and physical effects on a given door. Seems to be venerable to Holy Water.

An invisible undead spirit that can toss items around at range. The creature can become horrifying and visible for a short time, then returns to invisibility.

Skeletons Bones risen from the grave.
Black Skulled Skeletons burn people when they touch them.

Whispering Way
They're a necromantic cult. They're old, enough so that they easily predate the fall of Aroden. Their main goal is the release of Tar-Baphon, 'the Whispering Tyrant', who was imprisoned way back when. As best I've been able to tell, the organization exited even before Tar-Baphon's imprisonment, although he may have founded it in life."

On an individual basis, they seek power, quite specifically lichdom. They operate mainly as lone agents or in small groups, and are prone to gathering knowledge, accounts of rare undead, or even capturing animate specimens, that sort of thing. They're secretive, obviously, and go through some effort to keep their knowledge among themselves. They share their philosophies in whispers, but whether that's because of some magical or ritualistic property of the words, or if it's just theatrics isn't clear. They're powerful.

Their symbol is a gagged skull, which ties into the practice of mutilating the faces of their victims.

They are suspected by the Professor to be looking for someone who died in the Harrowstone.
Also suspected to have killed the professor, as his head was very mutilated.

Spirit creatures that don't like sunlight. They can drain life and create weaker versions of themselves if they kill you.

ZombiesWalking dead they rose from the Restlands and could be recognized by their loved ones if they were recently dead. (As per the Professor)
