Unhallowed Ground

A monster amonkst us...

The monastery of Montelegro was once a major center of academia, but it fell out of favor when its library burned to
the ground some 20 years ago. (The fire is rumored to have been started by the candle of a monk who fell asleep while
reading.) Without books to attract scholars and patrons, the order of monks that run the monastery has dwindled.

Now the monastery is a mere shell, its once-thriving halls empty.

Only 21 monks remain.

The order that runs Montelegro supports a number of scribes dedicated to copying and illuminating books of all
kinds. The most talented of these illuminators was Brother Abel of Corbone, a young monk fresh out of the
university. A few days prior to the adventure, Brother Abel witnessed a miraculous sight. While walking about on the
outskirts of the monastery, he beheld a vision of his god.

The vision instructed him to build a well upon the spot where he stood. If Abel did this, the god promised
prosperity would return to Montelegro.

Unfortunately Brother Abel was unable to fulfill his god's vision and appears to have taken his own life....

Or was there Murder in the Monastery?
