Your party cautiously creeps into the seeming abandoned candle-lit cathedral. As you pass the empty pews, you approach the bloodstained altar which appears to have a body laid upon it. Under closer inspection you and your allies see a corpse with fresh carvings into its flesh. The skin seems to be crudely stitched together at the joints. Your cleric recoils at this unholy sight, and as the rogue attempts to take the ruby amulet hanging from its neck, the abomination begins to stir from its deathly slumber. Roll initiative!
