Area Lore/Back Story

The Boneyard was once known as Brookside Memorial, a burial ground for the 
richest of the rich, but the mysterious curse that was laid upon it has 
stripped away any hint of its past glory and stateliness. More than one 
adventurer has attempted to purify the grounds and failed, and what horrors 
lurk there, none can say -- for no one who enters, ever leaves.

General Information/Trivia

The Boneyard is the twelfth zone written by Cordir.
