Welcome to your campaign!
They aren't all little and cute...

The coastal town of Sandpoint has faced few trials and
dangers over the course of its forty-two year history,
but unfortunately, that is all about to change.
Unknown to the town’s founders, they chose to build
their community over the ruins of an ancient
stronghold once used as laboratory and prison,
a place where horrific experiments and unholy
explorations into what divides man from monster
took place. These are the Catacombs of Wrath, one of
several such sites used by Pokémon Master Alaznist’s
apprentices during Thassilon’s height, a place where
arcanists explored and perfected the stolen arts
of lifeshaping and fleshwarping. When Thassilon fell,
these catacombs went dormant, but the one buried
under Sandpoint was not fated to stay that way.
